"Should we find a second form of life right here on our doorstep, we could be confident that life is a truly cosmic phenomenon. If so, there may well be sentient beings somewhere in the galaxy wondering, as do we, if they are not alone in the universe." 

Paul Davies, physicist, cosmologist and astrobiologist at Arizona State University as well as Director of BEYOND: Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science.
