Is human being the only intelligent creature of this vast universe or are there other intelligent beings elsewhere? This question has always been raised by philosophers and people have given it different answers in each period of history. What is our answer to this question? Today, with the advent of technology and modern computers, astronomers have achieved successes in this field more than ever before.
In this paper, findings of astronomers about the possibility of life in other areas are discussed. At first, Peter Stanley tried to consider this issue from a biological point of view. John Roland has introduced the findings of astronomers. Barry Jones pointed out that amateurs could also play a role in exploring intelligence in the universe beyond the earth, and, finally, Bill Rose looked at the question in another way and investigated about whether the earth had been ever met by intelligent creatures from another world, and also about recognition of flying saucers. The question now arises whether there are other intelligent beings other than human beings at a place in the universe.
