Washington: A scientist has claimed that humans will be able to find aliens within the next 25 years.

According to LiveScience, SETI`s Seth Shostak says that by 2040, astronomers would have scanned enough of the space so as to detect alien-produced electromagnetic signals.
Sostak made the comments during a Feb. 6 discussion at the 2014 NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts symposium at Stanford University.
He said that instead of looking at a few thousand star systems, which is the tally so far, they would have looked at maybe a million star systems by 2040.
