Alien encounters 'within twenty years'
A top Russian astronomer say he expects humans to encounter extraterrestrial civilisations within the next two decades
quite possibly, but what a statement to come out with ??
ok so he's a top astronomer who knows a hell of a lot about the stars, i can except him coming out with his views on wether he thinks there's life out there on other planets.
but to say when we will make contact and what they will look like ??
i think the man is making a complete fool of himself.
and because he's a top astronomer its plastered all over the press and papers ??
so how are we supposed to react then ....." oh he's a top astronomer so he must be right" ??
lets compare it to someone else who's top in their field of work,
lets say a top car mechanic, he tells his friend that he will have a crash next week and the man he will crash into will be wearing a red top and driving a blue BMW and will happen at 3:15 ?
" oh but he's the best car mechanic about so he must be right"
yes i know its a weird comparison , first thing that came into my head, but i'm sure you get what i mean ....... hopefully
