Humanity will make contact with alien life far sooner than you might think, according to one prominent scientist.
Nobel Prize winner professor Didier Queloz says he’s convinced we’re not alone in the universe and that he believes we could find life on another planet within 30 years.
The Swiss astronomer, 53, works at the University of Cambridge and was one of three scientists to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics this week.
Speaking in London on Tuesday, he said: “I can’t believe we are the only living entity in the universe. There are just way too many planets, way too many stars and the chemistry is universal.
“The chemistry that led to life has to happen elsewhere.”
Queloz added that he’s certain alien life will have been detected from Earth within the next century.
