I think there must be aliens in the universe. they just can't reach earch because their science and technology are still developing, like us. lol. If we met in the future, what should we do? fight or negotiate? what you guys think about?

Well, we tend to fight with our own species all over THIS world...we might negotiate at first but I’m quite certain the fighting will start soon afterwards...

Then again, we can not manage to leave our own athmosphere without a lie so chances are very slim we will ever find out.

A question: how DO they calculate the distance to far off stars and planets?
I get the light-year thing - no mystery there. I also get that distance is speed times time. No secrets there.
Bare with me...
So to calculate the distance to a far-off star, we need the speed of light and the time time it take to reach us, right?
We know the speed of light is 299 792 458 m / s in a vacuum. But now it gets interesting!
Time...when did this light originate? Nobody knows!
The other trouble with this is that we know light gets diflected by the gravities of big planets so the light from the star we want to calculate might not have traveled in a straight line.

About space-travel: I will say nothing but google the temperatures of our athmospheric layers. Compare that to the melting points to the different materials that may be used in space-craft...make your own conclusions.

long distance to find other life in this universe. lol. /:launghing
