Scientists Think We Are About To Discover Alien Life

An astrophysicist named Sasha Quanz has theorized that technology is getting us closer to discovering alien life.

Technology has been growing far beyond what anyone could have imagined. That is also the case for devices like the James Webb Space Telescope, which is now being used to photograph images of deep space in far better quality. With telescopes that can now achieve such heights, it is being theorized that we are nearing the time that alien life is set to be discovered.

An astrophysicist name Sasha Quanz has echoed the idea of finding alien life in space, which is based on technological advances that have occurred and are being planned currently. According to Quanz, “In 1995, my colleague [and Noble Prize laureate] Didier Queloz discovered the first planet outside our solar system. Today, more than 5,000 exoplanets are known, and we are discovering them on a daily basis.”

Quanz has also theorized that alien life could be discovered based on the planets that the James Webb Telescope has been able to capture. However, even as powerful as that telescope is, there are small planets that have yet to be detailed. There are now new devices being worked on that can fill in the gaps in what the James Webb Space Telescope is able to capture.

Of those thousands of exoplanets that have been discovered, there are dozens that Quanz believes can presumably host life. Whether or not that means alien life lives there, is something else entirely. However, the thousands of stars that exist in the Milky Way Galaxy are said to have at least one companion planet, and those planets could theoretically support life.

The U.S. government has been taking alien life more seriously, as there has been a number of videos being revealed that show UAPs. UAP is the fancy acronym that has replaced UFO. It stands for Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, and the growing videos have now led to a department being made to study these aircraft and their threat to the country.

Believing that alien life exists in the cosmos is certainly something that many people believe is still a conspiracy, but there are thousands of exoplanets that are being discovered all the time. With this massive universe of ours and just our galaxy alone, it could mean that there is life beyond ours.

The James Webb Space Telescope has opened the door of possibilities in that the telescope can now photograph stars that exist far beyond our understanding. If these new tools are being made to study those exoplanets that the James Webb Space Telescope misses, then we might be on track to truly find out if alien life is out there. At least, that would be the hope.

Alien life has been a subject of controversy for many astronomers, but it also does seem that many more scientists are buying into the idea of it, despite the scientific community holding a resounding feeling of skepticism about the theory that we are not alone. Quanz is also giving the discovery of alien life a mark of 25 years, which is still cautiously optimistic.

Would the public freak out if alien life was truly discovered? We would imagine that would be the next question to ask if the discovery of otherworldly life was finally made. Hopefully, the scientific community would be able to have faith in humanity and not freak out if alien life was discovered.
