To National Science Foundation, The existence of extra-terrestrial life was once considered almost impossible. However, as humans delve deeper into space, science, and technology the idea seems to be formulating that perhaps we are not the only intelligent life forms. The thought has changed from a perspective of “if” we will encounter intelligent life outside of our own, but “when” and what will be the outcome. With NASA’s confirmation that there are at least 3000 other galaxies that have been observed with a new telescope it is a hard sell to say that there is no possible way that there could be any other “intelligence” in space besides our own race. The hypothesis that I have generated through studying research both for and against is that alien life forms are present in our galaxy or neighboring galaxy it is just a matter of time before we are able to discover them.
However, the demotion of Pluto caused a lot of arguments and debates between Astronomers. Astronomers in favour of that decision thought it was a revolution of science and the way it should be approached. It wasn't until 2005 when Mike Brown discovered the "Kuiper Belt" which was said to be bigger than Pluto and the doubts about Pluto being considered as a planet raised. Regardless of the amount of astronomers who agreed about the demotion, a percentage of those scientists thought that word "Planet" is too vague. Still, having subcategories such as "Gas Giants", "Terrestrial Planets (Pluto being one of them)" and "Asteroids".
The fact is we still don't know. "Some of the early arguments we now know to be almost certainly erroneous, but even the most recent pieces of evidence do not unambiguously demonstrate the existence of life on Mars." ( Sagan and Shklovskii 273) Some scientist believe man should look up in the sky searching for new habitats for future generations, since human kind today seems to be going backwards in many aspects of the earth's ecology. The first attempt would be to study the moon; the second, our neighbor planet. Unfortunately, our actual technology slightly provides strong, useful information about the red planet because of the vast distance between us.
The first reason as to why extraterrestrial life could perhaps exist is that there is a vast amount of galaxies, stars, planets, and solar systems that humans have not yet discovered. To think that humans, the only civilization on planet earth, are the only living organisms in space would be quite absurd. Furthermore, a second reason as to why extraterrestrials could subsist is that life thrives in the most extreme conditions. This means that whether organisms are in the depths of the ocean, in the midst of the ozone layer, or in the scorching hot temperatures of volcanos; life always finds a way to adapt. However, some may argue that life could not possible coin... ... middle of paper ... ...tings.
This is the goal of the field of AI, yet it is not an easy goal to define. AI researchers express their goals differently, but they all share an interest in creating, through the hardware and software of a computer, an entity that is in some way recognized as intelligent and that shares some aspects of the distinctly human conditions. Thus, AI can be viewed as the attempt to create a machine that is in some way created in the image of the human person, an image loosely defined using the term intelligence.  One of the most challenging approaches facing experts is building systems that mimic the behavior of the human brain, made up of billions of neurons, and arguably the most complex matter in the universe. Alan Turing, a British computer scientist, stated that a computer would deserves to be called intelligent if it could deceive a human into believing that it was human.
Intelligent computer systems can and do benefit us all; however people have constantly warned that making computers too intelligent can be to our disadvantage. Artificial intelligence, or AI, is a field of computer science that attempts to simulate characteristics of human intelligence or senses. These include learning, reasoning, and adapting. This field studies the designs of intelligent agents, or a system that acts intelligibly. The term artificial intelligence is confusing and misleading however.
This goes beyond simple languages and syntactical manipulation. Cultural gulfs in language would also be the focus of such devices. Through the course of Mind and Machine, we have established that artificial intelligence's function will not be to replicate the conscious state of man, but to act as an auxiliary to him. Proponents of Strong AI Thesis and Weak AI Thesis may hold out, but the inevitable will manifest itself in the end. It may be easy to ridicule those proponents, but I submit that in their research into making conscious machines, they are doing the field a favor in the innovations and discoveries they make.
Therefore, there may be a staggering quantity of data and information about the existence of aliens that we still do not have access to. Also, as Avery quotes Hoagland: “If all the plant and animal fossils ever found were stacked within on room, they would probably not fill an auditorium (the human remains would not cover a billiard table)” (qtd. in 43-44). We, as a species, have not yet found enough evidence to support our existence on Earth over the course of time. So how could we conclude that extraterrestrials do not exist due to the inadequacy of evidence in this minuscule part of the vast universe we call
There is evidence against it now how ever the experience was real so by technicality the aliens are real. My conclusion to this is no ordinary call to action because there is nothing to fix or solve. The bottom line is I think aliens exist because it seems highly unlikely that out of the entire universe we are the only intelligent species. The term alien is very relative it can mean anything from an expression to a term for immigrant. The concept of aliens has done many things for us as a culture; it gave us a reason to want to explore the cosmos.
Being the farthest planet has made it difficult to study Pluto, Adding to the obscurity of this strange planet is that the capability to send spacecraft such distances has never been achieved. Through the wonders of science and astronomy, there are many things that can be determined, concluded, and hypothesized about this obscure planet. Pluto’s discovery was actually a fortunate accident. Clyde Tombaugh was searching for a ninth planet to explain inconsistencies in the orbits of Neptune and Uranus. Once further research was done regarding Pluto it was determined that the size of Pluto was too small to account for the irregularities of the orbits.
