Im often asked the question, "Do you think there is extraterrestrial intelli-
gence?" I give the standard arguments -- there are a lot of places out there,
and use the word *billions*, and so on. And then I say it would be astonishing
to me if there werent extraterrestrial intelligence, but of course there is as
yet no compelling evidence for it. And then Im asked, "Yeah, but what do you
really think?" I say, "I just told you what I really think." "Yeah, but
whats your gut feeling?" But I try not to think with my gut. Really, its
okay to reserve judgment until the evidence is in.

There is something you must understand about the Soviet system. They have the
ability to concentrate all their efforts on a given design, and develop all
components simultaneously, but sometimes without proper testing. Then they end
up with a technological disaster like the Tu-144. In a technology race at
the time, that aircraft was two months ahead of the Concorde. Four Tu-144s
were built; two have crashed, and two are in museums. The Concorde has been
flying safely for over 10 years.

"Never laugh at live dragons, Bilbo you fool!" he said to himself, and it became
a favourite saying of his later, and passed into a proverb. "You arent nearly
through this adventure yet," he added, and that was pretty true as well.
