between serbia and kosovo roadblocks were mounted after the incident police took control of two disputed crossings. starts used sophie shevardnadze catches up with a prominent russians who sure little green men do exist. 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. if we're talking life forms of course what particular form such life could be is a separate question of where there is life and intelligence and civilization are a possibility but discovering life is of primary importance in what form. of the so
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 without arms molecules or macromolecules there are 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 the 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 at the 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 or i think it is possible because apparently there is some. regular patent life inevitably develops intelligence if only there is enough time intelligence leads to civilization however this is 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 are all i belong to that by the way their genesis was a paradox too 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 very weak or if there is at least one similar occurrence of then 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 or 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. an oxygen necessarily indicates the presence of life of 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 a multitude of almost all stars might have their planets we've already 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. the complex it turns the earth around is 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 will 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 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 would find it rather difficult to visit humans will be traveling to other stars and 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 of the united states your opinion 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 here with china's ideas of populating mars with millions of people getting the. land seem naive to me although the chinese are capable of a lot but in any case i doubt we'll be traveling to the stars in the how will locating conscious life or other planets help us because i don't know for some time i stuck with the idea that we were alone in the universe that we were unique 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 technology can be transmitted to us via signals. and what sort of signals with. the area of science that searches for extraterrestrial civilizations is divided into three parts we have seti search for extraterrestrial intelligence the ketty communication with extra terrestrials and met even the message for extraterrestrial intelligence is 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 the astronomers are looking into this where 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 when in what sense do i believe they have visited us and that their existence of the why do you. if there was intelligence and a civilization outside earth then we would call that civilization extraterrestrial 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 when i know for a fact that it didn't happen the thing is in 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 of 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 as 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. every single day they detected approximately one thousand at an unusual phenomena only two of which made it and explained 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 wanted to tempted by passed 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 and i'm sure that if we were using horses
to get around rather than planes they would think aliens were visiting us on horseback with certain phenomena are interpreted into a myth this way. we recently spoke to jill tarter who works with seti and. tell those that valley and so indeed exist to their civilization should be much older and more advanced than ours and she said ellis was not 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 if 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. 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 and sometimes they do happen but who are different. to what we used to everyone is talking about the risk of the earth colliding with another asteroid there pathless do you think this is a real threat. just. first of all i want to tell you that asteroids and 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 the slab including some suspect organic matter they have often collided with earth the earth is dotted with asteroid craters we call them in space with. some scientists believe that the disappearance of entire species of plants and animals has to do with asteroids that happened two hundred fifty million fifty million twenty five million years ago now this 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 jupiter collide with an asteroid jupiter is in the earth's lucky star because our defender if it were not for jupiter all those asteroids would hit us the moon. a lot of asteroid imprints but a comet recently flew into the sun so there are some examples for you the science 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 a twenty twenty night 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 so 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 upper face will hit one we will be able to affect its trajectory after all. how so can we destroy it in 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 again we have been warned in advance which is very important as we think we could affect 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 thank you for this interview. but the stories of society or
a sick. parent is one. of the riots if the government breaks down the criminal side it's also a vacuum it helped create downing street a gang of fired violent for the on the rats. paranoid and prepared with its economy teetering on the brink of americans stock up on food supplies radios and guns to get the day which growing numbers believe could be right around the corner some fear the government may collapse leaving them no choice but to fend for themselves. and the next serbs in northern kosovo say they live in fear of having their land and property take him as tensions remain high following weeks of violence near the border between serbia and kosovo roadblocks were mounted after coachmen police took control of two disputed things. up next natasha's here with the latest.
and also look ahead susie nineteen thirty additional to the p.g.a. championship the final major of the gold. relates as a. russia have won the first friendly match in almost a year after a while no victory against. the only goal of the game to give man an important confidence boost ahead of two crucial euro. in september and it has this story. or russia are still well on course to qualify for the two thousand and twelve european championship finals in poland and ukraine said about dick advocaat 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 ball 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 though he would lose strikers alexander kitchener corven and to a shove in with only half an hour gone casual call of having to go for the leg injury are sharp in received a cut to his head. chances were the premium in the first half of the service for the gun rights of each should have done better with this free header five minutes before half time russia would open the scoring seven minutes after the break robin public has speculative drive from distance was from the boy boy on your good cheer each and puppet of new york was on hand to score his first goal for the national team in almost a year moments later the visitors could have drawn level but the guy can fared well to deny his former says come on team made me last class itch. or dean of should have doubled the home side's lead midway through the half hour of everton midfielder straight of a goalkeeper there was one so i know it's here he should call for his playing his first match in russia since joining on jima which color was booed throughout the
match much to the fury of head coach tick of accounts however the dutchman was much happier about how his team played. the majority of the players from europe so in the. practice game before the game. with his opposite number of like. in a paper of each ship they will positives for each side to take from their performance to serve believes the russians want at the top of a game. so russia were not as impressive as they can be so russia can play much better than maybe i was doing to the way we played well this win against the serbs will be a welcome confidence boost for the russians and for a little if you can't look outside failed to get all six points from september's qualifiers at home to macedonia and the republic of ireland which a bumpy if we don't see. elsewhere germany came out three two winners against
brazil in the friendly instead the first victory over the five time world champion since one thousand nine hundred three has opened sixty minutes into the game following this fall against the boston schweinsteiger in the area of a bomb that fell there then made the mistake from the spot for one mill. seven minutes later the germans doubled their advantage them audio kotsay or save the balls in the box and made all the rest them brazil got the gap soon afterwards though philip mom followed them dani elvish in the area to let them make it to one from the spot however schweinsteiger set up andrea surely what the germans three one up with just ten minutes remaining. and in the dying moments nineteen year old brazil hopeful neymar schooled this second on the night but that wasn't enough to complete the comeback you know him it was world wins at three two. in the meantime also captain says fabregas could join basile not by the weekend it's believed the
camels were open e. field about thirty five million pounds for the twenty four year old midfielder fabregas had joined arsenal from the catalans in two thousand and three a made his name in london if the club's failed to complete the deal before the gunners game against jews the fabric this would be unable to play for balsa in the champions league this season. now to basketball where russia finished their final preparations ahead of the european championships due to kick off on the stage the first of all goes into a near but before that david lot scored face the hosts in a warm up friendly because then but out of watch 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 russia faced tournament host lutherie 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 kill rina n.b.a. stars to my famous go under a kid in ankara 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 beat showdown 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 last for 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 played in the last few competitions are now showing their maturity and their level which is appropriate for playing teams like lithuania at the most i really like the
way we play tonight especially in defense we are 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 euro basket. with only the finalists automatically looking this board for next year's london olympics expect and all action to an end to de paul on august thirty first because they about out of energy. over in tennis they have a down stopped in the second round by nova jock rich in montreal and what was the subs they be as the world number one they're actually going to fight in the air. winning south which merely wanted to break the junk which eventually twelve and the subset of five a much easier fare in the second. seat seems to want to give him his first match as the world's top ranked player and reach the last sixteen the joke applies more and next to no doubt juan martin del potro.
elsewhere a comprehensive victory for roger had this cup as two time champion and last year's runner up federer battled it out again as local favorite wasik. seven five and six thirty this was the opponent next though in the formal will freights on god. now plenty of where the content is including a returning tiger woods lined up to go for the last major of the gulf in season the ninety third edition of the p.g.a. championship sees several top ranked gulf was missing only that major title on their resume it was a gorski looks at some of the top contenders ahead of thursday's styles. 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 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 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 when it firestone the australian himself is well aware of the bike that tiger and others in the field possess the competition is strong at the moment luke donald played amazingly west was 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 boast 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 to what's required is totally different so you know i just go to the reins and when we're striking i hope make up back to a level where it's controlled inconsistent has been defending champion marking climbers 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 we're playing at different golf course if we play the same golf course and of course. i would see myself. well i would expect to to do well again this week always his 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 then the final major of the year including tiger woods who can't be ruled out as he seeks a fifth p.g.a. championship events of course are key. for they all come in all place the weather than any celebrity year the main.
and the candle was photo as used to retreat. a sickness in society or a sickness in the system as you can afford is mop up the aftermath of the riots locals ask if the government will break down the crime and sliding social vacuum it helped create a. paranoid and prepared its economy teetering on the brink american stock up on food supplies radios and guns to get them through doomsday which some believe could be right around the corner. and ethnic serbs in northern kosovo say they live in fear of having their land and property taken as tensions remain high following weeks of violence. plus in business russian markets go against the grain open in the trading session in paul's it's a territory more on that then business in twice in minutes.
