An alien super-world 110 light years away from us is the first outside our solar system to have conditions that are potentially suitable to host life, astronomers say.

It is quite exciting.

But we've still never discovered an extra-terrestial signal ... which still rather implies that we're all alone.

And very likely just about to blow ourselves up. If Trump gets his way.

I don't think we're alone.

But in order for life to have enough of a chance to evolve to the state we have, then it must be in a quiet neighbourhood.

I think the universe may have developed in this way to ensure intelligent life never encounters any other.

I'm thinking we may be alone - SETI has never found extra-terrestrial communications and there appears to be no national interest in it. Not even at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breakthrough_Listen

I think its very possible that life develops quite easily - but it never arrives at our kind of complexity because the conditions have never, ever been right for it - great stability but just enough chaos to force development.

Hmmm. Intelligent life will only fill the universe if we manage to seed it ... makes some sense.
