NASA scientist claims that alien life may have already visited our planet, according to the latest report coming from Daily Mail.
Silvano P. Colombano, who works in NASA’s Intelligent Systems Division, believes that we may have even missed aliens’ visit because they could be much different from the traditional carbon-based life that we’re used to.
The man believes that humans’ currently thinking about extraterrestrial life is far too narrow.
“I simply want to point out the fact that the intelligence we might find and that might choose to find us (if it hasn’t already) might not be at all be produced by carbon-based organisms like us,” Colombano wrote in a paper first presented at a ‘Decoding Alien Intelligence Workshop’ in March organized by the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence.
Mastering interstellar travel
Daily Mail reports that he believes that alien life may have gone far beyond human technology, and aliens may even have mastered interstellar travel.
“We need to re-visit even our most cherished assumptions,” he wrote.
“How might that change the above assumptions about interstellar travel?” he wrote.
“Our typical life-spans would no longer be a limitation (although even these could be dealt with multi-generational missions or suspended animation), and the size of the ‘explorer’ might be that of an extremely tiny super-intelligent entity.”
He said that tech development in our civilization started only 10,000 years ago and he believes that humans might have a real problem regarding the prediction of tech evolution even for the next thousand of year, not to mention millions.
He also said that radio waves could be outdated, and he called for physicists to take part in speculative physics grounded in our solid theories but with the willingness to stretch possibilities as to the nature of energy and space-time.
He strongly believes that the UFO phenomenon is worthy of extensive study.
