Experts warn that the hunt for alien civilizations can lead to unpredictable and even dangerous consequences.
Astronomer Frank Marquis of the SETI Institute has issued a warning, warning humanity against attempting to establish contact with alien civilizations.
He compared them to ants, emphasizing that their technologies can be ahead of those on Earth, and meeting them could become a threat to humanity.
“If they can travel to visit us, their technology is likely far ahead of ours, including possibly the ability to travel faster than light,” Dr. Marquis emphasized.
All these possibilities, he says, could make our first interactions with aliens a nightmare.
Despite the intensifying search for alien life, Dr. Steve Desch, a professor of astrophysics at Arizona State University, expressed doubts about the effectiveness of this approach.
He stated that the idea of hostile alien civilizations willing to wage war on Earth is highly unrealistic.
“This is a completely stupid premise when you realize the amount of technology and the scale of effort that would be required to cross light years of space and fight a war like this,” Dr. Desch noted.
Despite warnings from experts, scientists continue to actively search for alien life.
The question of whether they are friends or enemies remains open, but one thing is clear: an encounter with an alien civilization may bring us unexpected challenges and risks.
