12:31 am
mr thinker thank you very much for being with us today you have promised that in twenty years time you will have discovered life on other planets are we actually talking about alan silver or merely some of the curia we're talking lifeforms of course of what particular form such life could be is a separate question where there is life and intelligence and civilization are a possibility but discovering life is of primary importance in what form. of the thought what i'm going to tell you is a paradox the form will definitely be well known to us in my opinion and i believe experts generally agree on this life and intelligence should they exist elsewhere at all should be highly human like you see essentially the origins of life follow the same pattern just as it is with adam's molecules or macromolecules there are
12:32 am
fundamental laws of physics that apply invariably in each case these laws have been thoroughly researched and explained now all you need is the right environment that would enable a process like that to start for example an atom of hydrogen that originates in a galaxy located millions of past six away from us that is hundreds of millions of light years away is absolutely identical to a hydrogen atom that originates in our solar system because fundamental laws are universal and it's the same with the fundamental laws that govern the origins of life including the fundamental laws of evolution these are universal so all living things should have the same composition and living organisms should look like the ones we encounter on earth could these life forms you're talking about develop into a civilization to work with primarily they can develop intelligence i think it is possible because apparently there is some regular pattern that life inevitably develops intelligence if only there is a. time and intelligence leads to civilization however this is
12:33 am
a very long process mind you the earth formed four point five billion years ago four billion years ago it was already suitable for life forms and in fact that is how long ago initial indications of life date back to but evolution takes a long time homo sapiens originated two hundred thousand years ago but it was only forty thousand years ago the modern humans came about the culture bearing humans that you and i belong to that by the way their genesis was a paradox to as they emerged on earth very quietly and then they immediately spread all over the vast area from the cape of good hope to china apparently there are some laws that we still don't know in detail. as a scientist would you guarantee one hundred percent that we will discover life yes and i will explain why you see there is this rational if not purely scientific outlook on the universe a process can either be unique or if there is at least warm similar occurrence then
12:34 am
it is a regular phenomenon for some time scientists believe that the solar system is something unique but nowadays we find that most stars have planets furthermore the formation of planets is an inevitable process that occurs when a giant molecular cloud forms into a star about a thousand planets located around different stars have been discovered to this date over five hundred stars are known to have planets a million planets are projected to be discovered within the next ten years moreover some of the recently discovered planets not only resemble the earth by composition but also seem to have oxygen and oxygen necessarily indicates the presence of life so planets a regular phenomenon meanwhile the universe consists of about a hundred billion galaxies each of them has roughly one hundred billion stars these are immense multitude almost all stars might have their planets we've already
12:35 am
discovered about a thousand of them and some of those planets be ten percent or even one percent might be suitable for the origin of life. where they turn the earth runs out of its resources and they will definitely be depleted someday perhaps in a few billion years do you think there is a chance that humankind will be able to inhabit other planets would you if you were i see what you're talking about i'm not an expert on this although i do have a feeling that life is generally organized in such a way that any species exists for a certain limited period of time it is highly possible humans are no exception environmental conditions on earth changed at least five times in the two hundred fifty million years that we're able to trace back with up to ninety percent of all living organisms becoming extinct and earthly floor of foreigners changing completely some hypotheses maintain that it was caused by an asteroid or comet hitting the earth but i'm more inclined to think that the earth and the solar
12:36 am
system or even the universe in general is something of a chemistry lab a giant factory with its own workings and certain species may only be designed to exist for a limited period of time and that may also be the case with humans i find it rather difficult to envisage that humans will be traveling to other stars in migrating to other planets on a massive scale in terms of our immediate prospects the primary destination for human karna zation will be the moon i might not live long enough to see this you definitely will as it will happen within the next twenty to twenty five years three global powers the united states the european union and china are already competing to set up the first lunar observatory and hence the first colony on the moon later on people might colonize mars china's ideas of populating mars with millions of people and giving them land seem naive to me although the chinese are capable of a lot in any case i doubt we'll be traveling to other stars how will locating
12:37 am
conscious life forms and other planets help us with i don't know for some. i stuck with the idea that we were alone in the universe that we meet it seemed like the desire to discover extraterrestrial life forms was essentially a desire to answer some of the questions that troubled as all questions related to health technology and survival if we do indeed discover a civilization outside of earth a highly advanced civilization we may gain some technology from this technology it would be fantastic look at how the world has changed over the past forty to fifty years the changes will radical people who remember the first era planes taking off and the first televisions are still alive and on the other hand we have the internet it has only been fifty years now imagine meeting the civilization that is ahead of us by one hundred or two hundred years the discoveries they must have made are unimaginable this is especially relevant considering that technologies can be
12:38 am
transmitted to as vice signals. and what sort of signals would those be. the area of science that searches for extraterrestrial civilizations is divided into three parts we have seti the search for extraterrestrial intelligence the ketty communication with extra terrestrials and met even the message for extraterrestrial intelligence the best way to do it i think is by radio waves it is the most powerful transmitter we have moreover it has been tested astronomers are looking into this they are looking for signals from extra terrestrials and using capacities we have here on earth to send signals to outer space. do you believe in aliens in what sense do i believe they have visited as that and their existence of the what if there was intelligence and a civilization outside earth then we would call that civilization extraterrestrial
12:39 am
but the term is used quite differently by the public to refer to phenomena that we supposedly observed here on earth that i do not believe in i know for a fact that it didn't happen the thing is and the public might find this interesting the u.s.s.r. was the only country in its day to host a grand experiment the general staff issued an order to various units under the defense ministries command to report any unidentified flying objects they were called and identified atmosphere phenomena about them the program was called the net it was divided into two parts the defense ministries net looking for what might be traces of new types of weaponry the other net the so-called a n net looked for phenomena previously unknown to humankind for more than twenty years people across one sixth of the earth's territory even more than that because we had military units stationed outside the u.s.s.r. at certain points all those people monitored the skies for u.f.o.s.
12:40 am
every single day they detected approximately one thousand and usual phenomena only two of which remained unexplained this day the rest were either manmade or natural some of them were amazing you would not believe me if i told you about some of the things that were found people didn't know such things could happen airplanes abandoned by pilots flew on for days a missile was wants to tempted the bypassed a passenger jet by a mere two meters we saw something of the sort later on in ukraine i believe it has been proven quite convincingly that extra terrestrials never visited us it makes sense to the way the public is thinking i'm sure that if we were using horses to get around rather than planes they would think aliens were visiting us on horseback certain from. are interpreted into a myth this way. we recently spoke to jill tarter who works with seti and she told us that of alien still indeed exist there are civilizations should be much older and more advanced than ours and she said ellis would not
12:41 am
contact us but there is a joke we have in the fact that extra terrestrials are not contacting us proves that they exist and they're smart but seriously we know that there is no speed faster than the speed of light it takes light from the star closest to earth for years to reach us it would take us centuries to devise a means of transportation that would allow us to travel this distance we know for a fact now that the star closest to us is devoid of life the next star the d.s.a. is twenty light years away it would take us millenia to think of a way to get that physical star travel is impossible that's my belief we would have to revise the whole science of physics miracles do not happen in science they do happen but over different sort of miracle to what we used to it's clear everyone is talking about the risk of the earth colliding with another asteroid their profits do you think this is a real threat. it is risky first of all i want to tell you that asteroids and
12:42 am
comets played a very important role in the birth of life remember the solar system is essentially a giant chemistry lab with comets and asteroids transport matter across this lab including some suspect organic matter they have often collided with earth the earth is dotted with asteroid craters we call them space will. some scientists believe that the disappearance of entire species of plants and animals has to do with asteroids it happened two hundred fifty million fifty million twenty five million years ago now they are prophets asteroid is not anything out of the ordinary what's more you and i may have seen something of the sort happened twice we saw two. to collide with an asteroid jupiter is earth's lucky star it is our defender if it were not for jupiter all those asteroids would hit us the moon has a lot of asteroid imprints but a comet recently flew into the sun so there are some examples for you the science
12:43 am
that studies asteroids on a collision trajectory with the earth which is approximately ten percent of all asteroids states that they do present a threat but back to apophis i think we do not have to worry about it it will come as close to earth as a geostationary satellite does in twenty twenty nine it will be the brightest object in our sky then in twenty thirty two it will return but it will not pass as a close it is quite a large asteroid about not point five kilometers in diameter there is a chance of it striking earth that is if it hits the so-called keyhole of the earth has two of these key holes in its gravitational field each one approximately the size of an asteroid but i do not think the apophis will hit one we will be able to affect its trajectory after all. how so can we destroy it with experiments conducted on earth have demonstrated that asteroids are destructible we will need a stronger force the more we used in the experiment to destroy it however. then
12:44 am
again we have been warned in advance which is very important we could have kept its trajectory gradually pushing it into the gravity field of another planet then after making several revolutions it will no longer be on a collision trajectory these ideas have never been implemented but i think they are plausible we shouldn't have a problem doing it even at our technological level i still think you for this interview. a sickness in society or a sickness in the system as the u.k.

12:46 am
and sunnyside alone welcome to the sports on our t.v. headlines back to winning ways with the latest euro two thousand and twelve full of lies kicking all for eighteen months time russia recalled their first victory since june the team so bad in the friendly. clear russian national basketball team holds a woman friendly against any as part of preparations for the upcoming european championship. and also look ahead to the nineteenth sad additional three p.g.a. championship with the final major on the gulf in calendar week which tees off later to say. so russia have won their first friendly match in almost a year after a one. here in moscow. the only goal of the game to game take out because man an important confidence boost ahead of two crucial euro twenty twelve qualifiers in september and it has been poor flayed has more. well russia are still well on
12:47 am
course to qualify for the two thousand and twelve european championship finals in poland and ukraine the less said about to come for current side's record in friendly matches the better the russians have put in some very subpar performances which had seen them lose to a run and only draw with qatar however almost a year on from their last victory in a friendly against bowl garia russia were finally looking to win again especially for those euro qualifiers against macedonia and republic of ireland coming up in early september. undercount picked a strong side so he would lose strikers alexander kitchener corven and air show in with only half an hour go on record of having to go for the leg injury or are sharp in received a cut to his head. chances were the premium in the first half of the service was a gun right to reach should have done better with this free header five minutes before half time russia would open the scoring seven minutes after the break robin
12:48 am
public speculative drive from distance was from the boy boy on your chair which competitive new york was on hand to score his first goal for the national team in almost a year moments later visitors could have drawn level but he got in fave did well to deny his form a serious come muscatine made me last class itch. deneuve should have doubled the home side's lead midway through the half hour of the everton midfielder straight of a goalkeeper there was one so i know it's your. should call through is playing his first match in russia since joining on jima was booed front the manch munched a fury of head coach dick up accounts however the dutchman was much happier about how it's team played. against and your team because the majority of the players from. european globes. who. practice. before the game because most of. his opposite number i didn't appear to reach
12:49 am
positives for trying to take from a performance believes the russians weren't at the top of a game. and i thought russia were not as impressive as the combi i thought russia can play him much better than me because i was doing to the way we played well this win against the serbs will be a welcome confidence boost for the russians a little bit because the cut side failed to get all six points from september's qualifiers at home to macedonia the republic of ireland richard if we don't see. elsewhere germany came out three two when as against brazil in a friendly in stuttgart their first victory over the five time world champion since nineteen lines to three open sixty minutes in following this foul against. invariably by midfielder made no mistake from the spot for one nil there. seven minutes later the germans doubled their advantage to. save the pass in the box and
12:50 am
made all the rest brazil call the gaps and after was though fairly aplomb fell down on the elvish in their area to let tara been you know make it to one from the spot . however set up andrea hsu near where the germans three one up with just ten minutes remaining and in the dying moments nineteen year old brazil hopeful neymar scored best second on the night but that wasn't enough to complete the comeback your hamlet was team wins it three two. to basketball now russia. finishing their final preparations ahead of the european championships due to kick off on the safest of all guests in lithuania but before that david plotz called face the hosts and a warm up friendly. watched the action. for the first time the european championship will be played with twenty four teams and the n.b.a. lockout offers an opportunity to watch the best you were born players take to the hardwood for the title in their only friendly match on home so before the games
12:51 am
russia faced tournament host lucy any of the home side produced an electric start securing a lead they would never link wish much to the delight of the home crowd forty nine thirty six the score at the big break but that wasn't enough for the full effect he karina n.b.a. stars to my famous go under a kid in anka and teammates kept attacking conjuring up silly benson moves and so all the defending on the seven ends it seems russia will once again be more into the favorites in louisiana as they aim to regain the crown they claimed in two thousand and seven ninety one seven to six their final score it would be chill down likely on the cards sooner rather than later in the lives of euro busken will to win eleven no obviously this team is a little different than the last few years because we have that quality factor of caroline go on a more mature goal the most important thing though is that other guys that have
12:52 am
played in the last few competitions are now showing their maturity and their level which is appropriate for playing teams like lithuania they're the most i really like the way we play tonight especially in defense we're working hard to improve it in and as a result we play more aggressively and put a lot more pressure on the opponent i think it will become our trademark during the euro basket. with only the finalists automatically booking this board for next year's london olympics expect an only action to one and to de paul on august thirty first. over in tennis nicolo dividend goal was stopped in the second round. of each in what was the serbs debut as the world number one the russian given that it's in the opening set which merely want to tie break but joke which eventually to get twelve game and the set seven five and much easier in the second with the serve taking a by six games to one to win in his first match as the world's top ranked player
12:53 am
and reach the last sixteen the joker plays martin chill it's next to knocked out one lots and. elsewhere a comprehensive victory for a jet had the rogers time champion and last year's runner up federer battled it out against local favorite boston seven five six three this west will face a tougher opponent thanks though in the form of joe wilfred tsonga. and finally plaintive with the contenders including a returning tiger woods a lined up to go for the last major of the goal thing seems and the ninety third edition of the p.g.a. championship sees several top ranked goal foes who are missing only that major title on their resume if i gorski looks at some of the top contenders and ahead of thursday's start. the p.g.a. championship is nearing a century of golfing excellence with its ninety third edition but only one of over one hundred fifty players will get to live that final major trophy of the year luke donald knows that a world number one ranking isn't enough to silence the critics the englishman well
12:54 am
aware of the fact that nothing short of a first ever major would bring him in line with the other greats of his era a predicament he shares with combat street and world number two lee westwood you know majors are and they stand age made out to be you know the biggest deal you know people. put a lot of pressure on the guys who have won them like myself and lee and you know adam and who have some might be this there's pressure to win and sometimes you can go to these events and just try to hard adam scott is the man of the moment coming off a win at the w.d.c. bridgestone invitational with a new star sidekick on his bag caddie steve williams recently fired by tiger woods has been taking shots at his former employer after scott's four shot win at firestone the australian himself is well aware of the bike that and others in the field possess the competition is strong at the moment luke donald played amazingly
12:55 am
westwards playing amazing and now we have tiger you know healthy again so this is going to be interesting for everyone to watch because we're also interested in what he does and how he plays such a big factor on the game northern ireland has been able to both an increasing number of major championship winners recently rory mcilroy is overall favorite in atlanta after winning the two thousand and eleven u.s. open graeme mcdowell also participating having won the same major the year before and yet another northern irishman derren clark holds the british open title his celebrate tory rounds after the win gaining almost as much publicity as his outing on the greens but now the forty two year old's focusing on the details of his game in a new and. the golf course is different the shots are different the what's required is totally different so you know if you're going to go to the reins and we're striking and hope make up our back to aleppo we're controlled by inconsistent has

been defending champion martin connors middle name of late after winning four tournaments in two thousand and ten the german taking last year's title when the event was held at the whistling straits course and the world number three knows that holding on to the crown will be a challenge at the atlanta athletic club where playing a different golf course if we play the same golf course and of course. i would see myself. well i would expect to to to do well again this week always is a new golf course i haven't played here any tournament yet. and i think it doesn't really matter if you're defending champion or not plenty at stake for each of the leading lights the end of the final major of the year including tiger woods who can't be ruled out as he seeks a fifth p.g.a. championship. gorski arche. it's all his fault for the moment coming up shortly as the latter stay with us.
