“The civilisation will already be gone”
Teams from the SETI Institute and the University of California claims that if transmutations from extraterrestrials from a far-away galaxy do reach Earth, then they could already be dead.
Their data is based on the incredible length of time it would take a signal to travel the length of the known galaxy – about 100,000 years.
Claudio Grimaldi, from the Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne, said it was likely any such alien culture would disappear by then.
Commenting on the findings he added: “If the civilisation emitted from the other side of the galaxy when the signal arrives here, the civilisation will already be gone.”
The boffin is now researching why humans have not yet encountered alien life.
His claims come shortly after fascinating new declassified footage that captured the moment a US Navy military jet pilot saw a supposed UFO.
The extraordinary encounter may prove that humans may indeed have seen aliens without leaving Earth.
But, humanity may make its first foray to Mars as early as next year after tech billionaire Elon Musk said he is developing spaceships that will be designed to reach the distant planet.
He added: “We are building the first Mars or interplanetary ship, and I think I we’ll be able to do short trips, short up and down flights, by the first half of next year.”
