Sweden is to participate in a new project to hunt for life in space. The project was being presented at a space forum in Trollhättan on Wednesday, reported TV4.

Several Swedish companies will cooperate with companies from Germany, Denmark and France on developing new technologies.

The project is called Prisma and is part of the international Darwin project, which is exploring space for possible signs of life. A number of small satellites will be launched at the beginning of 2008.

Together, they will form a giant telescope which will be able to spot planets many light years away.

"The question of whether there is life in space or whether we are alone is something which has occupied human thinking for many years," said Lennart Nordh, the project leader at the Swedish National Space Board, to TV4.

"The question of whether there is life in space or whether we are alone is something which has occupied human thinking for many years,"

There are a certain number of people who ask that question and I am one of them.

However there is a much larger number of people who will be forced to pay for the answer to that question.

There is also a larger number of people who will not eat tomorrow and who will not even have clean water to drink.

Well I guessed it would come to this, Sweden looking for others in space. It's got be a case of; being so far out in empty space, they are now looking for neighbours to relate to, or its because. No one listens to the Swede's anymore so, they are going to pound the martians ears and, hopefully move to mars. Is it that bad for the Swede's in Sweden, that they have to find another place in space ? :twisted:

" hopefully move to Mars."

You mean that they will be immigrants ?

Sill Y: No, not immigrants, that would be an insult to immigrants. Swede's need to get closer to another race like them...barren. :twisted:
