SETI Astronomer Makes Bold 'Bet'

The senior astronomer at SETI recently expressed a remarkably optimistic  outlook on when the discovery of extraterrestrial intelligence could  happen.

In an interview with the website Futurism, Seth Shostak declared that he would "bet everybody a cup of coffee that we'll find intelligent life within 20 years."

Noteworthy about that 'wager' is that Shostak assessment mentions  intelligent life rather than something alien but of the microbial  variety, which is often the case when scientists make such predictions.

However, as always seems to be the case with matters involving ETs, the  astronomer envisions a much more complicated set of circumstances than a  UFO merely landing on the White House lawn.
