I'm surprised the aliens spotted it.
Well done Carl Sagan.

I think its terribly exciting Voyager has at last left 'oor patch'. We are now getting signals from it, in 'empty' space. Spooky.

I wonder what it will encounter once out of our space - this should be interesting as I don't think earth is the only inhabited planet in the entire universe - I believe it's the only one in ours. But logic won't let me believe there is nothing else out there, somewhere.

I don't believe in UFOs it has to be said as I think there's a reasonable explanation for many of them, but not all.

There are always sweeping statements about The Imminent Discovery Of Life On Other Planets. And they`re usually issued around the same time when NASA`s knocking on Washington`s door cap in hand.

And what is this "Life, Jim. But not as we know it"? Germs. Molecules. Microbodes. No ET`s. No Xenomorphs. No nubile, young Benny Hill extras.

In the meantime, get a load of all them wicked Nebula shots. What a desktop background! And it only cost the US taxpayer umpteen billions over the last half century. Why pish all that dough away on schools or hospitals when you can have a great Flick`r account? And, in the interests of fairness, let`s not forget, Teflon non-stick frying pans came out of all that investment...

If not all Carmella, then that makes them exactly Unidentified Flying Objects, though not necessarily of an extra terrestrial origin.

Another often-quoted myth: TEFLON was patented in 1945! A wee bit before we went into space! Also quoted NASA spinoffs are Memory Foam and Velcro, neither of which had any basis in the space programme, although they may have been used in space. yes.gif

Don't be an angry Rat. Without all that research and development we wouldn't have people like Richard Branson settin' us up with cheap space flights soon tongue.gif

Yes I agree - they are still unidentified but that can cover many things. I may be wrong of course, maybe we have been visited numerous times by extra-terestrial beings.

i do, however, watch documentaries on the subject because it does fascinate me what people think they saw.

One thing I will own up to, is that some very credible people have explained in great detail what they saw on a dark night out doing their job (police etc) or just returning from a night out - and sober. These people in my opinion were unshakable in what they witnessed, so I wonder if there's something, although not of the et variety. These people definitely saw something.
