Hawking warns of Alien Contact

“British physicist Stephen Hawking says aliens are out there, but it could be too dangerous for humans to interact with extraterrestrial life.

Hawking claims in a new documentary titled “Into the Universe With Stephen Hawking” that intelligent alien life forms almost certainly exist — but warns that communicating with them could be “too risky.”

“We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet,” Hawking said. “I imagine they might exist in massive ships … having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach.”

All these years we have been sending out probes and signals to Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) but if their nature is anything like our own (human) do we really want to meet them?
