No one’s disputing the fact that breakthroughs in science have led to some wonderful achievements that have made the world a better place. But is it possible that our insatiable curiosity and quest to unlock the mysteries of the universe could one day bring about our own destruction? Listed here are eight elaborate ways that our reckless experimentation with science could eradicate the entire Solar System.
8. Contacting Hostile Aliens
For years now the American Association for the Advancement of Science has debated the potential benefits and risks of broadcasting messages to space in the hopes of attracting the attention of nearby aliens. It’s been a highly polarizing issue with proponents asserting that Active SETI (search for extraterrestrial intelligence) is necessary if we hope to ever understand our place in the cosmos, while detractors warning that it puts all of humanity at risk of a hostile takeover.
Since we have no way of knowing what the aliens intentions might be without making first contact, there’s really no easy way of settling this argument.http://ancientufo.org/tag/seti/ Via ancientufo.org
