If you don't believe in aliens watch this collection!

Humans have always wondered about life beyond the stars. The curiosity doesn't only stem from popular culture and the advent of film and television, but even before then. Books, oral stories and painting depicted "evidence" of aliens. People have always thought about extraterrestrial life, what aliens would look like, and if the creatures would come in peace, if they exist. But what are the nation's scientists and researchers saying about the potential existence of aliens? 
NASA's administrator believes we are not alone. In 2015, Charles Bolden, who has been the administrator of NASA since 2009, said, "I do believe that we will someday find other forms of life or a form of life, if not in our solar system then in some of the other solar systems — the billions of solar systems in the universe," according to the Telegraph.

If life arose naturally on Earth, it must be possible for it to arise on other, similar planets, said Wright, a professor of astronomy at Penn State.
"The primary argument is that life exists here, and has existed here for billions of years," Wright said in an email. "That is, life on Earth presumably arose via natural processes, those natural processes are universal and the requirements for life (rocky planets, water, carbon, etc.) appear to be widespread in the galaxy."
"Since it happened here on Earth relatively quickly after the Earth formed and cooled, it must be possible for it to happen elsewhere. Even if the probability of it happening is very low, there are billions of planets in our galaxy alone that should have conditions similar to early Earth, so it stands to reason that some fraction of them also have life."
