Is Life is a Natural Planetary Phenomenon?
Is Life is a Natural Planetary Phenomenon?: Harvard's Sasselov says yes. It’s feasible that we’ll meet other sentient life forms and conduct commerce with them, Sasselov says, pointing toward the exo planet he discovered on Nov. 12, 2002, he unofficially named Sheila, after his wife in Harvard’s astronomy-department laboratory. We don’t now have the technology to physically travel outside our solar system for such an exchange to take place, but we are like Columbus centuries ago, learning fast how to get somewhere few think possible.
