If you think UFO’s do exist…
You’re not alone.
Twenty or thirty years ago, hell…even less than ten years ago, the whole UFO phenomenon was a subject generally reserved for movies and those “lunatics” who camped out at the border of Area 51.
In today’s world, science fiction has been becoming, at an alarming rate, science fact.
We Better Get Used To It…
A couple of glaring examples, one being the recent statement issued by the Pentagon…
The Pentagon has finally uttered the words it always avoided when discussing the possible existence of UFOs — “unidentified aerial phenomena” — and admits that it still investigates reports of them.NY Post
That’s a pretty strong statement coming from a top echelon of the U.S. Government who in the past would never admit to having an investigative department specific to UFO’s and aliens.
So the question is, if the Government is saying that they investigate UFO sightings and admit that it is possible these other worldly craft may exist and are here on earth…
In this day and age, denying the fact that other life is likely to exist on other planets in other star systems is incredibly naive and a little too simple minded.
In my opinion, It’s not science fiction anymore. I think that it is absolutely plausible that life exists elsewhere and has been to earth in the past.
The only problem is, if we’ve been visited by actual aliens with super advanced technology, my question is HOW did they get here?
Light Years Away…
Now the short answer that most people would say is, “they traveled here in their space craft”.
The problem with the whole space travel thing is that the distances between Earth and the closest known spiral galaxy like the Milky Way is 2 million light years away.
The closest known star system to the Solar System is Proxima Centauri . A distance of about 4.22 light years away.
Now 4.22 light years may seem like a small distance, and in Galactic terms it is.
What that really means is that the light that is seen today from that star took 4.22 years to reach earth.
So if the speed of light from that star takes that long to reach us, imagine if we actually attempted to travel to Proxima Centauri.
Light Speed Versus Human Limitations
IF aliens are able to achieve actual light speed, then it would take them just under 5 years to get to Earth from the nearest star system to us.
Assuming that is where they come from, which is a big assumption and probably unlikely.
Currently, technology doesn’t allow light speed travel.
The fastest recorded speed is from NASA’s New Horizon space craft which passed Pluto at 52,000 mph.
Traveling at 52,000 mph, it would take New Horizon about 54,400 years to reach the closest star to earth.
So, as you can imagine, the improbability of aliens flying here directly from another system is a long-shot.
Possible but unlikely.
If actual alien craft has been visiting Earth, there are only 2 ways that I can think of…
- The space ship are unmanned. Basically drones.
- The aliens have figured out how to travel from star system to star system via “wormholes”.
I have no idea how it would work to go through a so called “wormhole” tunnel as a short cut across the universe,
but I guess that is a theory that actual science has come up with to explain space and time travel in light years.
Area 51 Raid!
Want to see if Area 51 holds aliens in their secret bunker?
Apparently, what was to be a big joke initially…
kind of took on a life of its own. Someone decided to create a Facebook event
and call on masses of people to come to Area 51 in Nevada and actually storm the top secret facility. Why?
To see if UFO’s exist and
So that we can all finally learn the truth about those aliens supposedly kept at that location.
What started as a couple thousand people signing up has become nearly 1.7 million Facebook users and counting in under 2 weeks, vowing to raid Area 51!
Don’t Raid Area 51…
The thing about practical jokes is that sometimes there are those who take them seriously. Way to seriously.
If 2 or 3 million people vow to show up at that air force base in Nevada, obviously most people, I would hope, get the joke.
So for those who are taking this literally…
DON’T GO AND TRY TO STORM AREA 51 to see if the UFO’s exist.
The U.S. Airforce will defend that installation using deadly force. They have already issued their warning in case some are serious.
Whether You Believe or Not…
And it’s okay to think one way or the other, there is definitely more going on than we have been told.
The line between science fiction and science fact has become rather blurry over the past 30 years.
