Could this be the future of satellite life finding technology, What do members think and should it be on the imeline?

“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.”

definitely possible and feasible! that's how i'd go about it anyway, but we need a more resource effective method of producing the probes as space is humongous! and we're gonna need a bunch of em! maybe self replication. but i think the article is worth a mention.
as a someone studying to become a nano-technologist, i find it very confusing when people call things nano when it doesn't have that much to do with nanotechnology.
i wonder what happens when someone actually creates a nano-machine will people realise that it is a great achievement or just another product and say nanotech was done 20 years ago with the ipod nano...
sorry just my personal rant http://www.futuretim...tyle_emoticons/animate/whistling.gif
