I don't know if it's because I'm tired, but I can't read the article properly. The way it's written seems terrible to me.

You're not tired, you're correct! Lots of misspelled/misused words. I don't think the article was written by a journalist...

First of all SETI was shutdown on my knowledge, second Hawking might be right were sending signals to space to whatever,whoever is out there. And we have no idea if that will end up good for us or bad.

I remember Hawking saying something similar to what this article states over a year and a half ago, but this article grossly exaggerates what he said and even takes a lot of it out of context.

Did anyone else watch his series on Discovery? It was fantastic.. I couldn't find the clip, but I know for a fact that he discounts all ufo sightings as ET craft. Thus, this article is garbage..

So what's the supposed synopsis? That frequent sightings may be a warning of a future invasion? I highly doubt that. Let's say ET has been here for decades and our Governments are well aware of them. They would have obviously made some type of communication and agreement/contract, etc. Who knows how deep that rabbit hole would be!


Legaia is correct about Hawking's stand on the ETH. I doubt his opinion will change. His show was very entertaining. Right up there with Morgan Freeman's Through the Wormhole.

SETI hasn't been shut down.  SETI is not actually one thing but is the collective name for studies that people undertake to search for ET.  Some of the most well-known projects are run by the SETI Institute.

On April 22, 2011, one project went into "hibernation" due to funding shortfalls for operations of the Allen Telescope Array (ATA) that provides data to SETI.

http://www.huliq.com...seti’s-search

In his book A Brief History of Time, Hawking suggests that "alerting" extraterrestrial intelligences of our existence is foolhardy, citing mankind's history of treating his fellow man harshly in meetings of civilizations with a significant technology gap. He suggests, in view of this history, that we "lay low".

The concern over SETI was raised by the science journal Nature in an editorial in October 2006, which commented on a recent meeting of the International Academy of Astronautics SETI study group. The editor said, "It is not obvious that all extraterrestrial civilizations will be benign, or that contact with even a benign one would not have serious repercussions" (Nature Vol 443 12 Oct 06 p 606). Astronomer and science fiction author David Brin has expressed similar concerns.

Not to mention that there is no town called Stonefield Beach in Oregon. There is a beach named that, but there is no town there.

I think it is a valid point that aliens could possibly come and wipe us out, or... they might be benevolent, it is really hard to say, they are... alien... after all. They would be technologically more advanced then us. Aliens would probably have to be inside our solar system to detect us as is and by then it would be too late anyway.

I wonder if anyone has ever gotten him to do that? It would be hilarious.

Not only could but most certainly WOULD.

It's not rocket science..any alien civilisation capable of crossing the vastness of space to get here...isn't coming for a two week vacation and a barbecue.
