Humans have been fascinated with the idea of life on a planet other than Earth. We have always thought of contacting alien life form and some people actually believe that alien life is present and they want to contact them to help us with technology. All the Hollywood movies about aliens attacking our country and invading us may actually come true if we do not listen to this eminent scientist.
1 Debate about the existence of alien life
Aliens are there or not? This question has kept mankind scratching their heads since long back. Some hieroglyphs in Egyptian pyramids have even suggested that they had contacted aliens or had been visited by aliens. Some of the cosmologists believe that aliens can be anything from bacteria and organisms to civilizations that may be far more advanced than us humans. Also some people are there in the world who strongly believe that aliens exists and have tried to visit the Earth many times and some believe that the Americans have even captured them and kept them captive in the highly secretive Area 51. People believe that aliens need to be contacted so that harmony can be build and we can benefit from their seemingly advanced technology. But a very eminent scientist has some other qualms about contacting aliens and has issued a warning about the same.
2 Dr. Stephen Hawking
Dr. Stephen Hawking who is a well known name in theoretical physicist has said that alien life is real. Professor Hawking is paralyzed by a motor neuron disease and has lost control of every muscle in the body and is confined to a wheel chair and uses a computer that talks for him. He known for his path breaking book a brief History of Time where he discusses theories on black holes and cosmology and the book stayed on the British Sunday Times best-seller list for 237 weeks.
3 Dr. Hawkings’ warning about aliens
Dr. Hawking has weighed in on the aliens issue and he has said that he believes aliens are real and that we should not contact them at all. He says that there are 100 billion galaxies and hundreds of millions of stars and there is a high possibility that there might be planet or planets where life evolved as it happened on Earth in our galaxy. He says we should not contact aliens because they already might have used up their resources and might be looking for other Earth like planets to take over and rule. It might seem a scenario form a Hollywood movie, but according to Dr. Hawking it might be true. “We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach,” Professor Hawking said.
