(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists have been trying to detect signals from representatives of other civilizations for a long time. They are sure that in the future people will be able to establish contact with extraterrestrials.
At the same time, there is a risk that another civilization will be hostile and this will become the cause of numerous conflicts on Earth.
This is exactly the opinion expressed by the employees of the University of Texas. Scientists from the University of Pennsylvania are sure that such a development is unlikely.
Many people believe that the existence of extraterrestrials is a fantasy. At the same time, some scientists believe that there are not only people in the universe.
Today, a huge number of radio telescopes are sent into space, which are needed in order to record signals from extraterrestrial civilizations.
Employees of the University of Texas some time ago published a scientific article in which it is said that there are real risks for humanity in the event of an encounter with aliens.
There are too many believers on our planet, so contact with extraterrestrials can cause strong indignation among them. In this case, the beginning of a religious war is not excluded.
Scientists are most afraid that the country that will be the first to find a common language with aliens will begin to monopolize all their knowledge.
As the experience of the Second World War showed, there may be an exchange of information at first, but in the end everything will change.
The country that will be the first to learn about new technologies can start using them against other countries. This will lead to numerous conflicts, which may ultimately lead to a world war.
Employees of Pennsylvania State University do not agree with the conclusions of colleagues. The probability that only one country will establish contact with aliens is very small.
Even if this happens, other states will not be able to monopolize the acquired knowledge.
Most scientists today believe that contact with an alien civilization will not cause a global catastrophe, but at the same time such a possibility exists.
At the same time, politicians and experts from different countries are ready to cooperate in order to find aliens in our universe.
