We are LESS than two decades away from finding alien life, expert says

Alien life could be discovered within the next two decades – but, these lifeforms will be far from intelligent beings, one expert claims.

According to astronomer Chris Impey, scientists are likely on the verge of detecting microbes on a planet beyond our own, with nearby candidates such as Jupiter’s moon Europa thought to contain some of the conditions to support life.

While scientists have been searching the skies for decades, the expert says we may now detect microbial life in the next 10 to 15 years, especially as forthcoming instruments such as the James Webb Telescope promise to improve our chances.
