August 15, 1977, that was the first time ever when we have come to the evidence of extra-terrestrial life. Ohio State University’s Big Ear radio telescope received a strong anonymous radio band signal that lasted for complete 72 seconds. Although an attempt of finding the origin was not paid off but that was probably the first time ever when we came across the existence of an intelligent life that exists somewhere in the Universe.
Statistically speaking, it is very likely possible those aliens do exist. We are neighbors of 200-400 billions stars in our Milky Way not mentioning the fact that there are at least 100 billion galaxies exist to our knowledge or may be more, nevertheless there are billions of stars as well. A recent research paper study also estimates that there are approximately 8.8 billion earth-like planets in our galaxy alone – the Milky Way. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration also recently discovered an Earth-2.0 and hypothetically it is very likely to have existence of life.
Universe is full of surprises and questions and it has always kept our astronomer engaged in its wonders among which existence of another planet with life always excites us. Questions like- what it would be when our scientists will get the positive proof of all their hypothetical theories, Will we be able communicate with them, How would they look like etc. etc. arises in our mind all the time but most important one is- Is it secure and healthy for our lives to contact them?
The great scientist, Stephen Hawking also believes in this theory. In one of his documentaries he says ‘The aliens are out there and Earth had better watch out.’ He suggests that Alien life is almost certain to exist in many other parts of the universe: not just in planets, but perhaps in the center of the stars or even floating in interplanetary space. He believes that Breakthrough initiatives are incredibly important and we must find out about the existence of them. However, he also fears that alien civilization would have no problem in wiping out our existence and humanity should be doing all it can to avoid any contact.’
Just a thought..
