Intelligent life may exist elsewhere in the universe besides Earth, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said in an interview Tuesday, and NASA is actively searching for signs.

“If you have a universe that is 13.5 billion years old — it is so big — is there another chance for another Sun and another planet that has an atmosphere like ours? I would say yes, so I think we’re going to get some indication that there’s intelligent life out there,” said Nelson during an interview Tuesday.
