Extra-terrestrial life does exist, the head of Nasa has confirmed, but said aliens were not hidden in Area 51.
Nasa Administrator Major Charles Bolden told British schoolchildren that he was confident that scientists would find life outside of Earth because there were so many planets that are similar to our own.
Asked by 10-year-old Carmen Dearing if he believed in aliens, he said: “I do believe that we will someday find other forms of life or a form of life, if not in our solar system then in some of the other solar systems – the billions of solar systems in the universe.
“Today we know that there are literally thousands, if not millions of other planets, many of which may be very similar to our own earth. So some of us, many of us believe that we’re going to find…evidence that there is life elsewhere in the universe.”
Major Bolden also admitted that Area 51 existed but said the US government was not hiding alien life there.
“There is an Area 51,” he said. . . .
