    Yo!

    You guys ever think about the Universe? :p

    You think we (as a society) should spend billions of dollars to reach other planets in our solar system?

    What's your thoughts on extraterrestial life?

    Most of it is primitive life. From those who aren't, most are not advanced enough to come visit us. Those who are advanced enough to reach us are far more advanced than us, having (some, maybe all) technologies that may seem like magic to us.

    What makes you say that most ET life is primitive life? (assuming you meant primitive, as in less intelligent than us)

    I have to correct myself. Most of it is non-intelligent like bacterial, vegetal, or animal life. From those intelligent life-forms, most are not advanced enough to reach us. Those advanced enough to reach us, are so advanced that they possess technologies that seem like magic to us.

    I've no idea what's out there. Just that it is statistically likely we aren't the only planet with life forms. So since we don't know, that's a damned good excuse to go looking.

    The way I see it, the universe is SO vast that not only is it likely there is other intelligent life- I'm sure there is plenty of life that makes us look primitive in comparison. As Thrumun said.

    This is my answer to the OP's question:
    So these are my thoughts on extraterrestrial life.

    I agree with this, since it takes a great deal of non-intelligent life to support intelligent life. For each human there are numerous plants and animals etc.

    Almost all, if not all opinions have something you base them on, and that was what I was after Thrūmun.

    I also think that if there is life out there, it probably has been evolved from something, which means it was "smaller" or "less intelligent" in the past.

    Humanity is headed toward smaller and less intelligent now. :D

    Very much what Baroque already said about the non-intelligent life.

    As for the other part, I think there are much less intelligent life capable of reaching us because it seems almost impossible to do with current technology. What seems to be the most promising one (well, maybe it's just what I've gotten the impression to be the most promising one; the Alcubierre warp drive), has too many challenges that it seems impossible to implement. So it seems to me that whoever is capable to reach us should have such advanced technology to seem like magic to us.

    If you're talking about NASA's work, yes. I don't know what their budget is, but NASA is one of the most valuable agencies in the U.S. You can search the Internet to see the number of innovations they developed that impact our daily lives. Also, I read that NASA's cumulative budget since its inception is less than our (the U.S.'s) current annual defense budget.

    Re. Extraterrestrial life, I suppose it's possible considering the universe is vast and ever expanding. We don't know what we don't know. I don't believe that there is life in our solar system.

    If I remember correctly, 1 half of a penny (of your tax dollar) goes to NASA.

    There is no point spending billions of dollars to try create technology which is still probably decades if not centuries away from us. Even if we are able to send a device what would go near the speed of light it would take way too long to reach the nearests solar systems and then sending the information back would take the same amount of time.
