Quote:CNN) -- Scientists looking for signs of life in the universe -- as well as another planet like our own -- are a lot closer to their goal than people realize.

That was the consensus of a panel on the search for life in the universe held at NASA headquarters Monday in Washington. The discussion focused not only on the philosophical question of whether we're alone in the universe but also on the technological advances made in an effort to answer that question.

"We believe we're very, very close in terms of technology and science to actually finding the other Earth and our chance to find signs of life on another world," said Sara Seager, a MacArthur Fellow and professor of planetary science and physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

"Finding Earth's twin, that's kind of the holy grail," said John Grunsfeld, an astronaut who helped repair the Hubble Space Telescope in 2009 and is now an associate administrator at NASA.

Considering there's 100 billion planets in the universe according to that CNN article, I'm pretty confident there's more life in the universe and some of them may be more advanced than us and know we exist, lol.

There are many planets which looks similar to Earth, example Gliese 832 c
But those planets are many lights years away. Even if we would have a space ship which goes within 1 light year per hour, we couldn't live there, there is different climate, oxygen, (maybe animals, viruses and etc).
