This is very old news. Even if there is life, it's not intelligent life. Maybe living organisms etc. but certainly no aliens that build flying saucers.

+1

That basically sums up the Rebbe's Shitah on the matter, not sure why this is news...

-1/2

In this sicha the Rebbe says there are humanoids, (though not on the level of humans on earth,) not just living organisms.

Just looked at the Sicha inside, it's tricky, the word used is בני אדם, though that seems strange as בני אדם are  usually human.

It's an unedited Hanachah, it would be interesting to know what words the Rebbe actually used...

It's from Lahak. They're usually pretty reliable, no?

Oh, and I did a little FTFY.

Where do you see that? Look at the last paragraph, there's a clear differentiation where  בני אדם which are on this world and  ברואים on another planet

As reliable as they are, I wouldn't make a Diyuk on a single word in a Hanachah Bilti Mugah.

Look in the end of the bracket it says בני אדם. I assumed that's what whYME meant when he said that they are humanoid as ברואים can mean anything.

Probably.
It's been a couple of years since I've really looked at it...

I guess once where on the subject there's the famous meeting between the Rebbe and Professor Velvel Green, a microbiologist working for NASA:
Quote
Back then—this was the early 1970s—when word got around that I was working with NASA and looking for life on Mars, some religious Jews would rebuke me. They said, “You mustn’t do that. You mustn’t work in the space biology program or the exobiology program, because it goes contrary to Torah. You shouldn’t be doing this kind of work.” Since at this point I had already begun my journey to Jewish practice, their words caused me concern—was I doing something wrong? I didn’t know what to make of these statements. Rabbi Feller suggested that the next time I would meet with the Rebbe, I should ask the Rebbe if that was in fact true.

The Rebbe didn’t respond right away. He thought for a while, and then he said this:

“You should look for life on Mars, and you should keep looking for life on Mars. If you don’t find it, then keep looking elsewhere, and do not stop looking, because to sit here in this world and say there is no life elsewhere is to put a limit around what G‑d can do. And nobody can do that!”

I recently read the Rebbe told someone they will be disappointed with what they find on the moon (~half a year before the 1969 landing).

I remember something of the sort though not quite the way you put it.

ETA: is this what you meant?

That's because the government has no interest in spending billions of dollars to visit a rock. They found nothing there and moved on. When they finally find nothing on Mars they will move on as well.
