A huge revelation has been made by a NASA scientist that Earth may have been visited by extraterrestrials. This, however, may not have been noticed by humans.
As part of a research paper, Silvano P Colombano, a computer scientist at NASA Ames Research Centre, says that aliens could look hugely different than the how humans expect them to be. They may not be carbon-based organisms – which would allow them to remain undetected.
“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 produced like carbon-based organisms like us,” Colombano wrote in the research paper.
According to Colombano, to go to a next level in the search for extraterrestrial life, scientists must “revisit our most cherished assumptions.” They should consider the idea of different characteristics. They should also look at the possibility that interstellar travel is already feasible for extraterrestrials.
Due to a low likelihood of extraterrestrial travel & high likelihood of hoaxes the scientists do not study extraterrestrial life
“The size of the ‘explorer’ might be that of an extremely tiny super-intelligent entity,” he hypothesised. “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.”
Colombano also says it is worth re-considering what the earthly civilisation may actually look like when scanning the universe. Also, since the technological development in our civilisation started only about 10,000 years ago. While the rise of scientific methodologies happened only in the past 500 years.”
Additionally, Colombano suggests the UFO phenomena may have gone unnoticed or overlooked in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. This is mainly due to a low likelihood of extraterrestrial travel and a high likelihood of hoaxes. It is for this reason the subject is generally avoided by the scientific community.
