Alien Hunter

Astronomer Jill Tarter—
real-life alien hunter.

Tarter has yet to intercept
a signal from another planet,
although she hopes that earthlings
will someday connect
with life out there.

She’s optimistic that contact
will be achieved.  Whom, or what,
will we connect with? Can we 
find a language for communication
among alien species?

We will have math in common.
We will have physics in common.

SETI, “The Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence,” is a waste of time and money.  The resources should go to NASA for exploration and manned missions to other planets instead.   The universe is too vast, with respect to both time and space, for such life, if it even exists, to ever be found.
