How would you search for life?
I was just sitting browsing through the internet the other day and i kind of got struck by an idea that i haven't be able to shake. Instead of looking at stars and every planet that's around them trying to find life why don't we work backwards.
I propose we start with what we have an idea of what alien life might look like (lets use the "grays" for this example) and we figure out what kind planet might produce life that looked like that and then figure out what kind of star that planet would have to orbit. And we start looking for stars like that and look closely at the planets that will fit our description.
I think this "working backwards" method would be a great way to advance our search for life, what do you think?
