NASA is admitting that “tiny-super-intelligent” aliens may have already visited Earth, and UFO sightings cannot be explained or denied, according to a top NASA scientist who says the space agency needs to be “more aggressive” in the search for alien life.
According to an article published by The Sun, the scientist suggests that it is plausible that aliens have already visited Earth, and were simply never noticed.
He also claimed that not all UFO sightings can be “explained or denied,” and said that researchers and scientists should be more open-minded about the possibility of alien visitors.
In a recently published paper on SETI, Professor Silvano P. Colombano suggested that alien life may have already visited us and no one ever noticed.
“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,” said Professor Colombano.
“How might that change the above assumptions about interstellar travel? 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 “we need to re-visit even our most cherished assumptions”, including that “interstellar travel is impossible or highly unlikely”.
“Considering further that technological development in our civilization started only about 10,000 years ago and has seen the rise of scientific methodologies only in the past 500 years, we can surmise that we might have a real problem in predicting technological evolution even for the next thousand years, let alone 6 million times that amount,” he said.
He added: “Even if the speed of light continues to be an unbreakable barrier, over spans of thousands of years civilizations could probably make interstellar journeys.”
In his paper, titled New Assumptions to Guide SETI Research, Professor Colombano said that recent discoveries of Earth-like planets by the Kepler space telescope, should prompt Nasa to “focus our attention on detecting signs of life and technology in specific planetary systems”.
“I feel we need to become more flexible in our assumptions,” he explained. “The reason is that, while it is still reasonable and conservative to assume that life is most likely to have originated in conditions similar to ours, the vast time differences in potential evolutions render the likelihood of ‘matching’ technologies very slim.”
“In the very large amount of ‘noise’ in UFO reporting there may be ‘signals’ however small, that indicate some phenomena that cannot be explained or denied,” the professor wrote.
“If we adopt a new set of assumptions about what forms of higher intelligence and technology we might find, some of those phenomena might fit specific hypotheses, and we could start some serious enquiry.”
