Ian O'Doherty: Well, it's an easy mistake to make

What's your view on the possibility of alien life forms?
Frankly, I've always found it rather baffling and astoundingly arrogant that some people assume we're the only sentient beings in the universe on the grounds that a) theoretical physics has shown us that there is actually more than one universe and b) c'mon people, just look at the scale of things and ask yourself, honestly, whether we are the only ones out there.
Having said that, I also have serious doubts about whether we have ever actually been visited by alien life forms.
