MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian scientists expect humanity to encounter alien civilisations within the next two decades, a top Russian astronomer predicted on Monday. The genesis of life is as inevitable as the formation of atoms... Life exists on other planets and we will find it within 20 years, Andrei Finkelstein, director of the Russian Academy of Sciences Applied Astronomy Institute, was quoted by the Interfax news agency as saying. Speaking at an international forum dedicated to the search for extraterrestrial life, Finkelstein said 10 percent of the known planets circling suns in the galaxy resemble Earth. If water can be found there, then so can life, he said, adding that aliens would most likely resemble humans with two arms, two legs and a head.
