"Sometimes I think we're alone in the universe, and sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the idea is quite staggering."
1917 - 2008
Are we alone in the universe? Or is there life on other planets? When I contemplate either option, I am in awe. If we are alone, then it is amazing that we even exist. And we should celebrate our existence. If there is life on other planets, then there are great opportunities to explore, discover and learn. I, for one, lean towards life on other planets. I would love to have the opportunity to explore the universe and come in contact with other worlds. And fortunately, science fiction gives me that opportunity.
How about you? Do you believe there is life on other planets? Or do you believe we are alone in the universe? How does your answer to that question influence your creative work?
