Hello,

Thought I would share a link to something that you'll find cool. (literally). A link to a live stream cam on the ISS on USTREAM.

ISS live cam

I find it very interesting to know that your looking out into a place with a camera where there is ABSOLULY nothing but emptiness. Where nothing can live and nothing can be heard but the eerie silence of space. With a view of a place below it where it is EXACLY the opposite. A place where life can flourish and live, seeing all of that at the same time......very cool.

Did you catch Saturday night's Codes and Conspiracies? The topic was Eric Von Daniken's book Chariots of the Gods. Parts of it they were trying their best to debunk, but their explanations of what this or that could alternatively be fell short. For example, when Eric was discussing Lord Pacal's "rocket", they said, "I don't know about you but if aliens came to Earth with all their advanced technology, then why is there fire and smoke coming out of the rocket? Seems a bit "old school" for space travel. They had a point. Then about who built the pyramids-- Eric never said that aliens built the pyramids, he said that they used alien technology- big difference. It was quite interesting and like when I read Eric's book, I had to sit here and go, "Hmm".

It's especially soothing to watch and listen to a subliminal tape at the same time. I'm listening to "Perfect Health and Healing" now.

I agree wholeheartedly that this is cool, but I'm not convinced nothing can live out there. Cornell thinks it'll be 1500 years before we ET calls us back. The logic they use seems fairly sound.

I suspect there's life in the universe besides us. Whether our timelines overlap is a good question, but given the scale of the universe, I think there's quite a bit out there. Intelligent life may be much more rare though. Of all the organisms on our planet, how many have the means to send signals out into space? We've only been able to do that for about 80 years of the human existence...

I suppose you are right. the scale of the universe is somewhat incomprehensible to the human race. I didn't quit mean that nothing could live OUT THERE. I just meant in outer-space itself, the possibility that there is life on another earth-like planet is quit high. as you said though. intelligent life might be a little more rare. but I believe wholeheartedly that's we are not alone. its not a question of IF we find someone or something else.......it's just a question of WHEN.
