The giant Kepler telescope is letting scientists look deeper and deeper into space, which is allowing them to discover more and more planets orbiting stars that are a lot like our sun.

This is leading them to the conclusion that there are aliens out there – and we will eventually find them.

Bigshot astronomer Seth Shostak from the SETI Institute thinks we’ll track down extraterrestrial intelligence in our lifetimes.

“It is not a stretch to suggest that scientists could very well discover extraterrestrial intelligence within two decades’ time or less,” said Shostak. “Recent analyses of Kepler data suggest that as many as one star in five will have a habitable, Earth-size planet in orbit around it.” (Forbes)
