Here's a real cool read, with some simple statistics and probability thrown in.

If you read it, you should soon understand why it is very bad news if NASA finds evidence of life on mars. As this means that - most likely - the "great filter" event is still ahead of us.

Took the lazy sponge route first; but the narrator is an annoying film reviewer here in Australia, so I had to stop watching and read the article instead.

Pretty cool, thanks for sharing TE.
