UFO Buster Radio News – 308: Will 2020 Be The Year Alien Life is Found & Are Martian Fossils Enough?
Alien life bombshell: Top experts reveal why aliens could be found NEXT YEAR
ALIEN life could be found as soon as next year, according to one expert who believes humanity’s quest to make contact with extraterrestrial beings is “behind schedule”.
Douglas Vakoch, president of the nonprofit Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence (METI), believes that even if just 0.01 percent of star systems are how to advanced aliens, there could still be millions of aliens out there.
And for that reason, Mr Vakock believes humanity is lagging behind in its bid to find life away from Earth.
“If one in 10,00 star systems is home to an advanced civilisation trying to make contact, then we’re behind schedule in making first contact, and the news we’re not alone in the universe could well come in 2020.”
The example in his final book told of when Europeans encountered native Americans, and almost killed them off in order to conquer the New World.
Prof Hawking wrote in Brief Answers To The Big Questions: “Breakthrough Message is an international competition to create messages that could be read by an advanced civilisation.
“But we need to be wary of answering back until we have developed a bit further.
“Meeting a more advanced civilisation, at our present stage, might be a bit like the original inhabitants of America meeting Columbus – and I don’t think they thought they were better off for it.”
“But an extraterrestrial civilisation of very advanced technology might be a threat – and they may want to get rid of us before we become a threat to them.
“There are real evolutionary-style arguments pointing int that direction.
“Maybe we would be better off observing exoplanets for ten or 20 years until we’re in a better position to assess the risk of communication. The risk is too great.”
Solving fossil mystery could aid search for alien life on Mars
Probes searching for evidence of alien life on Mars may have an easier task in future thanks to new research which shows that certain organic-like forms found in rock structures are not the result of microcellular organisms.
On Mars, the time and resources of probes sent there are precious and anything to help them avoid analysing unnecessary data will be valuable to future missions.
A team from the University of Edinburgh has shown that microscopic tubes and filaments that resemble the remains of tiny creatures may actually have been formed by chemical reactions involving iron-rich minerals.
Previous research had suggested that such structures were among the oldest fossils on Earth.
The discovery was made by astrobiologist Sean McMahon, who is developing techniques to seek evidence that life once existed on Mars.
He created tiny formations in the lab that closely mimic the shape and chemical composition of iron-rich structures commonly found in Mars-like rocks on Earth, where some examples are thought to be around four billion years old.
McMahon created the complex structures by mixing iron-rich particles with alkaline liquids containing the chemicals silicate or carbonate.
This process – known as chemical gardening – is thought to occur naturally where these chemicals abound. It can occur in hydrothermal vents on the seabed and when deep groundwater circulates through pores and fractures in rocks.
His findings suggest that structure alone is not enough to confirm whether microscopic life-like formations are fossils. More research will be needed to say exactly how they were formed.
“Chemical reactions like these have been studied for hundreds of years but they had not previously been shown to mimic these tiny iron-rich structures inside rocks. These results call for a re-examination of many ancient real-world examples to see if they are more likely to be fossils or non-biological mineral deposits,” McMahon said.
