We have seen countless Hollywood films based on the aliens and how they can destroy our planet if they ever arrive here. All these years, there’ve been speculations and theories about friendly aliens too.
However, as per the latest hints by some researchers, alien exploration can be very harmful and life threatening for us.
As per News Nation report, Lucianne Walkowicz, an astrophysicist at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago said that making contact with those extra-terrestrial life could be catastrophic for the human race.
She was quoted as saying –
“There’s a possibility that if we actively message, with the intention of getting the attention of an intelligent civilization, that the civilization we contact would not necessarily have our best interests in mind.”
“On the other hand, there might be great benefits. It could be something that ends life on Earth, and it might be something that accelerates the ability to live quality lives on Earth. We have no way of knowing.”
But it gets even more serious after famous physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawkings also repeated the same-
In a recent interview, he mentioned-
“If aliens visit us, the outcome could be much like when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans.”
However, there are still confusions and anything that’s being said on this matter is debatable among the group of experts.
What are your thoughts on this?
