Is there alien life on Earth? Maybe, says Brit 'naut. Well, where did they come from? How about this far-away cluster. Or this 'Godzilla' galaxy...

"Someone's got to be first. What if it's us?"

Given the (apparent) age of the universe, and how long into the sun/Earth existence cycles life here started, the chances that we live on the first rock to evolve any sort of life are so small as to make the odds of life existing at all look huge. Assuming that by "us" you mean life on Earth, rather than the human race - we've only been around for a comparatively tiny amount of the time that life has been around (as far as we know)...
