Sagan: Life out there'

tion on Earth would most likely
be detected t h r o u g h radio
emissions. "If there are intel-
ligent beings 'out there,' we
could be detected no farther
away than 30 light years."
Television broadcast waves,
which were not emitted before
1940, could not yet have traveled
farther than 30 light years, Sa-
gan said.
"THE FIRST examples of our
culture to reach an extra-ter-
restrial civilization would be
Howdy-Doody, Milton Berle, and
the McCarthy hearings," added
In an exclusive Daily inter-
view, Sagan speculated that
Martians may indeed exist, but
due to the present inhospitable
conditions on Mars, may be
hibernating during the 25,000
year winter.
Althoughrconsidered a "ro-
mantic" among the astronomi-
cal community, Sagan's theories
have brought him wide acclaim +
from both laymen and scientists.
The much-publicized "canals"
of Mars, which were the sub-
ject of hot debate a few years ;

back "seem to indicate that at
one time, more habitable con-
ditions existed on Mars." Al-
though the canals are not the
work of intelligent beings, they
indicate that perhaps Mars was
covered with rivers thousands
of years ago.
"I believe that it is very con-
ceited for us to believe that we
are the only intelligent civiliza-
tion," Sagan said.
ments, we have created simple
nucleic acids, which are the
building blocks of all forms of
life," Sagan continued. "Life on
earth was not as accidental as
one would assume, the universe
is put together in such a way
as to permit, if not guarantee,
the origin of life and the de-
velopment of complex crea-
However, according to Sagan,
the evolutionary details would
not be the same on another
planet even if "conditions were
exactly the same as those on
"It is typical chauvinism to
assume that any other intelli-
gent being would resemble man

in the least," he continued.
Although it is Sagan's policy
to "assume all phenomena un-
til proven otherwise" he does
not place much credence on
UFO reports.
"I HAVEN'T leard of any
UFO reports that are both re-
liable and interesting," said Sa-
gan. "The first thing 'people
assume when theytsee blinking
lights' is that they are extra-ter-
restrial in origin when actually
they are easily explained man-
made phenomena."
Sagan feels that an advanced
civilization would probably have
a very minimal interest in
"We," he said, ,"are the in-
tellectual low-man on the galac-
tic totem pole."

Campus Interviews
MITRE is a place which daily faces the challenge of minds over matter, and where,
even more importantly, minds matter a lot. Since we're a nonprofit system engineering
company operating wholly in the public interest and dealing with tough problems
assigned to us by more than a score of governmental agencies, we know that our
greatest resource is the human mind. And we know that the kind of mind we need also
needs to know that it will be working on important problems with other professionals.
What's more, we'll be quite specific in spelling out your assignment to you. All of this
because you matter.. . and because at MITRE, minds matter.
We are currently seeking new graduates to work in command and control systems,
information processing systems, electronic surveillance systems, communications
systems, and environmental, health and other social systems.
If you're an EE, Computer Science, Math, Operations Research, or Physics major, you
could be working on problems in telecommunications, voice communications, micro-
wave and digital signal processing, educational information systems, radar design,
propagation studies or advanced modulation, coding, error control and data
compression techniques.
Or, you might want to get involved with water quality management, digital information
systems, data handling and reduction, microprogramming techniques, data base
structure, time sharing, text processing, management information systems for courts
and police, computer program design and development or evaluation of present day
software for phase-over to next generation machines. These are just a few of the
areas in which you might get involved at MITRE.
All of these positions require a minimum of a BS degree. If you have more than a
bachelor's, that's even better. Almost 2/3 of our 700 technical staff members have
advanced degrees.
All these openings are at our corporate headquarters at Bedford, Massachusetts
(suburban Boston). If you are interested and think you can meet our standards, send us
your resume. Better yet, we'd like to talk to you on campus. Sign up at your Placement
Office. We'll be there on February 7.
