Stephen Hawking: If you receive a call from the aliens, do not respond.
Stephen Hawking once again warned that communicating with aliens would not be good for man.
The astrophysicist believes that intelligent aliens can be hostile toward humans and even strive to colonize a planet rich in resources, as is the case with the Earth.
In his new documentary “Stephen Hawking’s Favorite Places,” he commented on the Gliese 832c, an exoplanet that could have life.
“Once we receive a signal from a planet like this, but we should think carefully about whether we will respond to it. Meeting with an advanced civilization could be like meeting Columbus with the natives of America. It does not work well, “said Hawking.
It should be borne in mind that the Earth is a rather noisy planet, which has been transmitting radio and TV signals in space for decades.
Some astronomers believe that if there was an alien civilization that was advanced enough to travel through space, it would not have noticed yet.
