    Extraterrestrials: They will come...

    Many may know about the Drake Equation which was devised by Frank Drake in 1961. This was an attempt to estimate the number of extraterrestrial civilizations in the Milky Way galaxy with which we might come into future contact.

    Our Milky Way galaxy is a spiral galaxy we call home as do roughly 400 billion other stars in recent estimates. Our galaxy has several spiral arms of star clusters and a massive cluster of stars in the center. Our Sun which is one out of up to 400 billion other suns in our galaxy is far from the center and halfway up one of the spiral arms named the Orion. Basically we are way off in the boonies, far away from the robust inner city of the Milky Way. Our Sun revolves around the center of our galaxy about 500,000 miles per hour, yet it still takes about 200 million years to go around once.

    Our Milky Way galaxy which has estimates of up to 400 billion stars is only one galaxy out of several hundreds of billions of Galaxies just within our observable area of the universe.

    Many of these stars are much like our own sun where most have a group of planets and moons orbiting around them. Solid bodies orbiting the stars in the universe with a chance of supporting life greatly outnumber the stars. Just our one star (Sun) has 8 planets, 5 dwarf planets, and 172 moons. It is the incomprehensive numbers of planets and moons that is where life has a chance to begin.

    So with up to 400 billion stars just in our galaxy, with several hundreds of billions of galaxies just within our observable area of the universe, with the vastness of the universe a complete unknown, along with the vast numbers of planets and moons orbiting each star, it shouldn't take a mental giant to see that there is likely many millions of types and forms of intelligent species out there.

    In fact the Drake Equation itself estimates there is likely 10,000 different advanced lifeforms within our Milky Way galaxy alone, let alone the fact that this is just one galaxy out of billions just within our observable area of the universe.

    The U.S. has an extensive space exploration program NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) . NASA is the agency that leads the U.S. space exploration and became operational on Oct 1, 1958. The U.S. spends an enormous amount of money on space exploration with budgets of almost $20 billion a year spent. NASA has launched many satellites, probes, manned missions, and a space telescopes.

    Launched Tuesday April 24, 1990

    Keplar Space Telescope:
    Launched Friday March 9, 2009
    Keplar's mission is to search the Universe for planets that could be similar to Earth and habitable for life.

    The Mars Global Surveyor launched November 1996
    The Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) mission is designed as a rapid, low-cost recovery of the Mars Observer mission objectives. The science objectives involve high resolution imaging of the surface, studies of the topography and gravity, the role of water and dust on the surface and in the atmosphere of Mars, the weather and climate of Mars, the composition of the surface and atmosphere, and the existence and evolution of the Martian magnetic field.

    The spacecraft began its Mars orbit insertion burn at 9:17 p.m. EDT September 11 after a 10 month cruise phase. The time for the radio signal to travel from Mars to Earth is about 14 minutes, so the Earth received time for these events was 14 minutes later, or 9:31 p.m. EDT for the beginning of the orbit insertion burn. At 9:29 p.m. the spacecraft went behind Mars and contact was lost at Earth at 9:43 p.m., closest approach to Mars on this pass was at 9:30 p.m. The burn was completed at 9:39 p.m. and contact was re-established at Earth at 9:57 p.m. Mars Global Surveyor started in an elliptical (54,021 x 258 km altitude) 45 hour orbit.

    Mars Pathfinder later renamed the Carl Segan Memorial Station launched on December 4, 1996
    Mars Pathfinder impacted the surface on July 4 at12:57 PM EDT at a velocity of about 18 m/s (40 mph) - approximately 12.5 m/s vertical and 12.5 m/s horizontal - and bounced about 15 meters (50 feet) into the air, bouncing another 15 times and rolling before coming to rest approximately 2.5 minutes after impact and about 1 km from the initial impact site. The landing site in the Ares Vallis region is at 19.33 N, 33.55 W, the lander has been named the Carl Sagan Memorial Station.

    The Mars Pathfinder's Sojourner Rover rolled onto Mars' surface on July 6 at about 1:40 AM EDT. Image received at 2:00 AM EDT July 6 shows the rover completely off the ramp, all six wheels on the martian soil.
