BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Just as the New Horizons spacecraft flyby of Pluto is returning dazzling images of the distant dwarf planet – you can’t help but wonder and ask the big question; are we alone in the universe? The answer to that question is quite challenging.
Buffalo State College Planetarium Director Kevin Williams believes we need to keep searching. “We don’t know the answer. It would be incredible if there was not life outside of Earth.”
And if there is life out there — what form does it take?
Are they microbes flourishing in pools of water, or something more substantial like intelligent life capable of interstellar travel and communication?
“That’s what I want to know,” said Cassidy Nicholas, a Western New York based field investigator with the Mutual UFO Network known as MUFON which tracks and investigates UFO sightings. . . .
