Stephen Hawking Says Alien Encounters Will Be Bad
Renowned physicist, Stephen Hawking has recently said for a Discovery Channel documentary that our planet’s first encounter with aliens might not be a pleasant meeting.
In the documentary, Hawking said that he actually fears our first contact because when aliens come to our planet, it will be like when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.
Hawking explained, “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.”
