Scientists working for US space agency NASA are now saying that a new spacecraft and bigger telescopes will bring them closer to finding alien life.
Experts, at a meeting held by NASA in the US capital Washington, say they're very, very close in terms of technology and science to finding signs of life in another world. NASA officials believe the challenge of finding another planet like Earth with life is a challenge worthwhile. A new space telescope is expected to be launched in 2018, which will look for evidence of life on nearby planets outside our solar system. Scientists say the new James Webb Space Telescope will be the most powerful ever built, but cannot guarantee success
