UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — A Nobel Prize-winning scientist has predicted that alien beings will be discovered in the next 30 years, claiming he is “convinced” that we are not alone in the universe.
Swiss astronomer Didier Kilo was one of three scientists to receive the Nobel Prize in Physics this week.
In London on Tuesday, October 8, Kilo said: “I can’t believe we are the only living entity in the universe. There are too many planets, too many stars, and universal chemistry. The chemistry that led to life has to happen elsewhere.”
Professor Kilo, who has worked at the University of Cambridge since 2013, said he was sure to discover a strange life about the planet in 100 years.
However, it is believed that it is “realistic” that a new vehicle capable of detecting biochemical activity is being built on exoplanets within 30 years, according to The Telegraph reports.
Kilo shares the 2019 Nobel Prize in Physics with his colleague Michelle Mayor, who discovered an extrasolar planet orbiting a star system, and James Babels, whose visions formed the basis of modern cosmology.
Mayor, in collaboration with Kilo, discovered an exoplanet named Pegasi 51, sparking a revolution in astronomy, and a new area now considered the best hope for discovering alien life.
Since then, 4,000 exoplanets have been found, and several other projects are planned to search for more exoplanets.
Now, there are more than 100 celestial bodies named after Kilo.
The search for life on exoplanets is an official part of NASA and ESA’s research agendas.
