How close are we to finding alien life?  Many NASA scientists think it's only a matter of time.

Business Insider reports that NASA is planning to scale up the search of E.T. over the next 10 years.  NASA is planning to explore Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, and the atmospheres of planets orbiting faraway stars.

Thomas Zurbuchen, NASA’s former administrator, told to Congress in 2017, “With all of this activity related to the search for life, in so many different areas, we are on the verge of one of the most profound discoveries ever".

Ellen Stofan, NASA’s former chief scientist, said in 2015 that she believes we’ll get “strong indications of life beyond Earth in the next decade and definitive evidence in the next 10 to 20 years.”

Stofan believes that NASA has the technology and knows where and how to look for alien life.

E.T. used a modified Speak and Spell to phone home.  NASA has powerful toys worth billions and all they can do receive random space static.  What does that tell you?
