SES 311 Blog 3: Artificial Intelligence

In the search for intelligent life, it is very possible for us to encounter an artificial intelligence created by a species more advanced than us. A sufficiently advanced form of AI could be indistinguishable from natural intelligence as we know it. The question of intelligence questions what we think is true of intelligent and sentient life forms.

Searching for signs of extraterrestrial life

Lately, there has been more peer discussion about how we go about searching for life off planet earth. A few places within our solar system were identified as good targets to begin the search for life, among them: the Moon, Mars, Titan and Enceladus. We need to begin the search with patience. 

Our Moon is the closest celestial body to us. The LRO is currently taking pictures, but a new mission to establish an out post on the moon should begin. Why not get very good about getting to…

What is LIFE???

Everyone have there own opinion about life. Some believe it was created by some supernatural powers /God. And some believe that it was not created, it was an accidental process that is still in existence. 

Does all this really makes sense?  We don't have proof, that how life begin on Earth? Did it really begin here or, was seeded on Earth as in the Theory of Panspermia.  Maybe life began here on Earth by the…
