Professor Stephen Hawking has issued a disturbing warning against making first contact with aliens, claiming that if this occurs, aliens would slaughter humans and take over the planet. Hawking believes that aliens will not welcome initial contact with humans from Earth and has advised humanity to be cautious about making contact. He then went on to discuss the planet Gliese 832c, an extremely hot super-Earth discovered earlier this year that is thought to have the ability to host extraterrestrial life.
Hawking Hypothesizes that Alien Contact Is Similar To Columbus’ Native American Meeting.
Hawking believes that Earthlings may one day receive a signal from such a planet, but that they shuld be careful of responding to any communication from extraterrestrial life. He went on to imply that seeing advanced alien would be similar to Columbus’ initial encounter with Native Americans. He brought up the fact that the meeting had not gone well.
There’s a chance that alien species will turn out to be murderous marauders that scour the galaxy for planets to loot and conquer before colonizing them. This might spell the end of human existence on the planet.
Professor Hawking has already expressed his apprehensions about making contact with extraterrestrials. He originally appeared on the Discovery Channel in 2010 to discuss aliens destroying humanity.
Hawking also mentioned temperature rises of up to 250 degrees Celcius as an result of climate change.
Hawking stated that as he grown older, he has become more certain than ever that humans are not alone in the universe, and he is now spearheading a glboal effort to discover this.
Hawking appears to be concerned about more than aliens putting an end to life on Earth.
He’s also warned that if nothing is done about climate change, Earth would become as hot as Venus. He predicted that the Earth will become a “hothouse” in which humanity would be unable to survive.
Hawking went on to discuss how President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement my make matters worse. Hawking believes that the Earth has reached a tipping point and that global warming will become irreversible. Trump’s policies might drive the world over the edge, with temperatures reaching 250 degrees Celsius.
Many academics disagreed with Hawking, claiming that these temperatures would not occur since it is further from the Sun than Venus and does not have a carbon dioxide-rich atmosphere like Venus.
