Stephen Hawking Announces Search For Alien Life

Milner Talks at the Conference, With Hawking Next to Him

Physicist Stephen Hawking and Russian billionaire tycoon Yuri Milner announced at a news conference in London that they are jointly launching a project called Breakthrough Listen.  The project will put $100 million dollars and some of the world’s brightest minds in an intense search for alien life.  Scientists say our odds of finding life will shoot up now, just because right now we’re hardy even trying.

At the conference, Hawking said, “We believe that Earth rose spontaneously on Earth.  So in an infinite universe, there must be other occurrences of life.”  Apparently Hawking has had a change of heart, in 2010 he said we shouldn’t search for aliens because, “If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans.”
