Humans could contact aliens within 12 years, says UFO expert

Humans could make contact with alien life within 12 years, with the aid of the world’s largest radio telescope, a leading UFO expert has claimed.
One of the key questions, whether extra-terrestrial life exists, could be answered by 2024 with the development of a supersized 1.3 billion pounds radio telescope, the Daily Express reported.
The development of the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) telescopewill unleash “new and exciting possibilities”, according to former UK ministry of defence UFO Project leader, Nick Pope.

“I will be controversial and give you an exact year of when I believe first confirmation of contact will be made – and that is 2024, the year in which if everything goes according to plan the Square Kilometre Array will be fully operational,” Pope, who studied UFO sightings at the MoD for 21 years, said.
The SKA, to be started in 2016, is set to be the world’s largest radio telescope and will answer some of the fundamental unanswered questions of our universe.
Made up of thousands of radio wave receptors covering 4,921 square km of the Earth’s surface in the Australian outback, scientists have claimed it will provide alternative views of the universe than those seen with optical telescopes.
Scientists leading its development have suggested the SKA will be 50 times more sensitive, and will survey the sky 10,000 times faster, than any other telescope.
“It will give astronomers insight into the formation and evolution of the first stars and galaxies after the Big Bang, the role of cosmic magnetism, the nature of gravity and possibly even life beyond,” a spokesman for the SKA said.
“If there is a civilisation within 100 lightyears this telescope could find it. We are now beginning to have the technology whether it’s the SKA or maybe other telescopes that are being developed that will allow these possibilities. We are searching all the time for a shadow earth,” Pope added.
Recent research suggested that nearly 10 per cent of the population has seen a UFO, equally more than 6 million people just in the UK.
“When I was investigating UFOs, I investigated 2-300 reports each year. 10 per cent is an absolutely astonishing figure,” Pope added.
The UFO expert also speculated as to how the extra-terrestrial life could make contact.
“The old fashioned idea was that there would be this landing on the White House lawn. First contact might just happen via email, but more likely it will be through radio signals,” Pope said.

Here’s Why Scientists Are So Dismissive Of UFOs

Our new alien overlords aren’t likely to be landing anytime soon, sad to say, despite news reports of the Pentagon’s secret UFO program.

A Department of Defense “Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program,” which investigated sightings of mystery aircraft moving in impossible ways, thrilled UFO fans in reports this week in both the New York Times and Politico Magazine. Accompanied by released videos of military pilots expressing bafflement at artifacts on cockpit screens, the news seemed a respite from earthly concerns about death and taxes.

But experts in real-life optical illusions expressed more caution, perhaps best summed up by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson telling CNN, “Call me when you have a dinner invite from an alien.”

“Green flashes,” “inversion,” and “ghost” mirages have bedeviled fliers for decades. These illusions are created by different layers of the air acting like lenses. An optical effects archive maintained by astronomer Andrew Young of San Diego State University details the physics of such observations as seen by the eye, cameras, and video recordings. A “subsun,” for example, is a remarkably bright solar reflection from ice crystals floating in the air. The reflection’s circular or flattened shape could resemble a UFO.

Solar mirage and green flash

Not all of the effects reported by news stories can be explained by mirages, optics expert Joseph Shaw of Montana State University told BuzzFeed News. “Reports of objects accelerating in different directions seen by pilots sounds different,” as well as claims of fallen “alloys” collected by the Pentagon. But that doesn’t mean the objects come from outside of our atmosphere.

“Certainly the Air Force should be trying to figure out phenomena reported by pilots,” investigative writer Joe Nickell of the Center for Inquiry, who has investigated UFO reports for two decades, told BuzzFeed News. “But to immediately decide something unexplained is ‘extraterrestrial’ is just really unlikely.”

Defense Department investigations into unexplained aerial phenomena date at least to the start of the Cold War, since the 1947 “Roswell Incident” crash of a secret spy balloon, Project Mogul, in the New Mexico desert.

Around the end of the Cold War, in the “X Files” era, reports of mystery aircraft picked up, security analyst John Pike of GlobalSecurity.org told BuzzFeed News, tied to early development of US stealth fighter and bomber planes. A long history of dubious reports since the 1960s lead him to conclude, “anyone who was paying attention to UFOs had too much time on their hands.”One other source of skepticism about the Pentagon’s UFO program is that it originated in the patronage of former Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, and was contracted to Bigelow Aerospace, owned by an avowed believer in UFOs, Robert Bigelow. It reappeared in the news reports as a private effort headed by its former program director, Luis Elizondo, and supported by Blink 182 guitarist Tom DeLonge. Elizondo identified himself as a believer in extraterrestrials in the reports.

“I think it is telling that the program was initiated at the behest of Senator Reid and on behalf of a friend and constituent of his,” Steven Aftergood of the Federation of American Scientists told BuzzFeed News. “If DoD had been genuinely concerned about the subject, I believe it would have undertaken the program on its own volition.”

A Defense Department spokesperson, Laura Ochoa, confirmed to BuzzFeed News that it cancelled the $22 million program in 2012. “It was determined that there were other, higher priority issues that merited funding and it was in the best interest of the DoD to make a change,” she said.

But that doesn’t mean the government’s search for aliens has stopped forever, she added: “The DoD takes seriously all threats and potential threats to our people, our assets, and our mission and takes action whenever credible information is developed.”

Dark forest theory – contact with extraterrestrial civilizations

The question of whether we are alone in the universe arises as soon as it has been scientifically proven that the Earth orbits the Sun, and that there are many others besides our planet.

By the 21st century, mankind had already learned to enter the hidden corners of the cosmos, to find distant exoplanets (similar to Earth), to observe nebulae and black holes. But we still cannot ( officially ) find traces of an intelligent life.

All the scientists have discovered so far are the microscopic remains of the most primitive organic matter in Earth’s meteorites. Are we alone in this huge cold world?

People try to find other civilizations by regularly sending radio signals to different parts of the Universe, but they don’t get answers. Or, if they receive something, they don’t understand what it is and whether it’s a message from an intelligent life, or just reflective signals from comets.

According to the theory of Enrico Fermi (Fermi Paradox), presented in the 1950s, in many billions of years of the universe’s development, life could theoretically occur in many places, but if we have not seen them yet, then perhaps we are the only such civilization.

A decade later, astrophysicist Frank Drake, creates a special formula based on many parameters which calculated the number of extraterrestrial civilizations in the galaxy. According to this formula, despite the fact that we do not see traces of these civilizations, there must be many of them.

Over the years, many theories have emerged that try to explain why all these civilizations do not come in contact with us, but rather, they are intentionally hidden from us.

One of the newest and most curious theories emerged in 2008 and bears the slightly ominous name “Dark Forest Theory.”

This theory is revealed in Liu Qixing’s science fiction novel of the same year. It is based on three claims:

1) All living creatures strive to secure their own survival.

2) There is no way to know if an unfamiliar life form will be friendly or try to destroy you.

3) Without guarantees to obtain accurate information about the dangers of this life form, the best thing for surviving is to remain hidden for as long as possible or to deliver the first preemptive strike yourself.

From all this, it follows that if extraterrestrial civilizations are stubbornly silent and do not respond to any attempts at contact, then they probably adhere to the “stealth” condition or they entered the war (preemptive strike) and were destroyed by its consequences.

Liu Cixin says:

“The universe is a dark forest. Every civilization, like an armed hunter, moves among the trees, carefully pushes its branches and tries not to make loud noises. This hunter tries to control himself and breathe as quietly as possible. The hunter must be careful because this forest is full of other hunters.

And if he encounters aliens, he will probably be attacked and killed, survival is the main thing. This is a picture of space civilization and it well explains the Fermi paradox. “

Cixin also explains that the resources of the universe are not infinite. Therefore, civilizations will try to conquer them earlier than others and destroy competitors. That is, any alien race for any other  alien race is a catastrophic threat.

Between their own representatives, these races can negotiate, as humans do on Earth. but with completely alien intelligent life forms, completely different rules are played, and the survival of the species is at stake.

This theory is supported by science fiction writer David Brin, and many others. Moreover, if we take this theory to be true, then it turns out that humanity is at great risk by sending radio signals to space. It’s the same as in a dark forest full of dangers, to scream:

I’m here! Come all here!

The late Stephen Hawking also realized this danger and opposed attempts to seek contact with aliens, believing that this was essentially suicide. .

Maybe people are overly dramatic and vainly imagine extraterrestrial civilizations as ruthless predators?

However, if all these civilizations evolved in a way similar to humankind, which is very likely under similar chemical and biological conditions, then we must remember what the “civilized” people in our history did when they encountered less developed tribes.

Hollywood UFO stories are becoming much more realistic

The Pentagon admits that UFOs are real. So Hollywood is doing a flurry of movies and TV shows about how we should look for them.

UFOs are everywhere and Hollywood noticed it. Talking about UFOs is no longer something conventional, with the former Blink-182 singer, Tom DeLonge, causing the US military to admit they have UFO videos.

Small and large screens have always shown aliens and UFOs. From movies like Close Encounters of the Third Kind to The arrival and even the franchise The Avengers, bizarre aliens and their vehicles arrived on Earth and this has caused audiences around the world to question the existence of extraterrestrials. But there is a greater focus on UFO hunters in Hollywood.

Robbie Graham, media critic and author of “Silver Screen Saucers: Sorting Fact from Fantasy in Hollywood’s UFO Movies”, said:

I think it’s fair to say yes, and that this resurgence in popularity is a direct result of the 2018 Pentagon revelations, which captured the attention of mainstream media (in the U.S.) like no UFO story in decades. This helped to legitimize UFOs as a topic of dominant debate and opened up new lines of scientific and political research for TV producers who are always looking for new approaches to this enduring and popular subject.

Recent researches indicate that just over half of Americans believe that UFOs exist and a third believe they are alien spaceships. Graham is not entirely convinced that UFOs will be the next big thing. But he points out that young people are being drawn to the subject like never before.

Graham stated:

It seems that ufology is not as stupid as it was before, thanks to an influx in recent years of relatively young and modern researchers who were attracted to the subject through its new legitimacy. Ufology was once an old person’s game; now it’s a youth game.

In 2017, former Blink 182 frontman Tom DeLonge, publicly announced his UFO / technology / media company, To the Stars Academy, along with an article from New York Times announcing a secret Pentagon program designed to study anomalous phenomena. Young UFO enthusiasts have turned to social media, #UFOTwitter has become a real hashtag and the once invisible UFO speech has become incredibly public.

Aiden Gillen told the Motherboard in an interview:

I think people are more open to considering it a real phenomenon than just a psychological one.

I suppose you could have said this also in the 50s and 60s, in the age of science, that people would be more open to the idea that we are not alone in the universe. I am also fully aware of how unlikely we are to meet.

Gillen, known for playing Littlefinger’s role in game of Thrones from HBO, interprets the Dr. J. Allen Hynek at the Project Blue Book of History Channel, what returns next week.

Aidan Gillen as Dr. J. Allen Hynek, in the Blue Book Project series.

Blue Book Project is a fictional TV series about the Air Force’s infamous UFO investigation program of the 1950s and 1960s with the same name.

Gillen said that humans are naturally curious about UFOs:

It is inevitable that you will ask yourself. This is something that people have been doing since we started supporting ourselves as a species. ‘What’s up there?’ It’s always been, ‘What’s up there?’

Although Gillen does not think the government should spend large amounts of money chasing UFOs, as there are more pressing problems, he thinks that talking about UFOs is no longer taboo.

He explained:

I think there is something that is getting cool about UFOs. It’s easier to talk or reference [sobre eles]. I feel that Immediate Third Degree Contacts is one of the coolest films of the 70s, and when that role came out, I thought, “This is really cool ..

Although TV dramas like fictional Blue Book Project, UFO-themed programs still have a long way to go.

Graham said:

They depict presenters chasing lights in the sky in jeeps while wearing night-vision goggles and noisy walkie-talkies (radios). It is absurd and devoid of educational value. However, it doesn’t have to be that way, and this wave of factual UFO TV shows is likely to reflect a more serious tone that the mainstream media has started to adopt on this topic. Certainly, UFOs are ‘selling’ like never before. They are a hot property in the TV area at the moment and everyone wants a slice.
