Larson acknowledged that many are convinced that people from outer space exist. Scientists have concluded that the odds of life elsewhere in the universe are fairly high, he admitted. But he said the chance that any of them are making contact with humans is extremely small, given the distances involved. “However,” he added, “that doesn’t mean the subject of life outside our planet isn’t being discussed or explored.”
In fact, Larson mentioned that a scientific search for extraterrestrial intelligence is keeping an “ear” out, though nothing has been found so far. He also said the Kepler spacecraft (Kepler is a NASA spacecraft) searching for Earth-like planets will launch this month “to assess what Martian environment was like in the past to see if it could harbor life.”
Another, more down-to-earth project of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy early this month was a free health text messaging service for under served pregnant women and moms. It is called Text4baby. The White House said it is “reaching its target audience of and achieving a number of its health education goals.” The program is the first free mobile health service in the United States “and is an important example of leveraging widely used technology—in this case cell phones—in new ways to improve the lives of Americans.
“Pregnant and new moms who sign up…receive three text messages per week containing health tips and resources.”
Sounds like a sidebar to ObamaCare. You just never know what the White House Office of Science and Technology will get into next.
