    It is one of the greatest questions of all time: “Are we alone?”  The question is as old as civilization itself and as intriguing as any ever asked.  For centuries humans could only speculate about the possibilities of life beyond Earth, but as astronomers now study the Solar System and its inhabitants in greater detail, we come closer to understanding how rare life really is.  New data provides clues about where life might thrive and also where not to look for it.  With continuing research, astronomers are better equipped to estimate how many bodies may harbor life in our Galaxy, and if communicating with extraterrestrial intelligence is merely science fiction, or a realistic possibility!
