Unless we give up on interplanetary exploration, I think its pretty likely we will come across some type of primitive microbial life in the next 30 yrs. On Mars, some moon or other like Europa, or even on an asteroid or comet.
Intelligent species with which we can communicate, not very likely.
Yes. I think we already have. We're just waiting to find out before Monsanto releases their giant, man-eating corn seed.

Blasting transmissions straight out in every direction. How could that not eventually be picked up by someone if they're out there?
We started transmitting radio waves, what 150 years ago? They move at the speed of light, so right now they've only traveled to a radius of 150 light years from earth. A sphere 300 light years across is a teeny teeny tiny portion of the universe.
Same thing will be true in another 500, 1000 years. The sphere that has been exposed to our electromagnetic signals will be larger, but still won't include a lot of other stars or places where life might be.
And by then, our technology will be more advanced, giving us a better chance of fending off "bad guy" aliens.
Not to mention, they'll be getting our signals from 500 or 1000 years previously. All they'll know about us is that we once liked I Love Lucy, and they'll have to guess how far our ability to kick alien ass has progressed since then.
New analysis of 36-year-old data, resuscitated from printouts, shows that NASA found life on Mars, an international team of mathematicians and scientists conclude in a paper published this week.
Further, NASA doesn't need a human expedition to Mars to nail down the claim, neuropharmacologist and biologist Joseph Miller, with the University of Southern California's Keck School of Medicine, told Discovery News.
"The ultimate proof is to take a video of a Martian bacteria. They should send a microscope

Between my lawn service and fast driving, I think this issue is being address.
