In search of alien space debris

If an intelligent alien civilization has ever sent unmanned probes to Earth, could we recover them ?

It stands to reason that if we were to have ever been visited by curious extraterrestrials then they may have sent unmanned probes to observe us at one time or another, something that we ourselves would undoubtedly do if we came upon an earth-like planet teeming with life. Could there be alien probes amongst the space debris in orbit around us now, waiting for us to come across them ?

"As powerful space telescopes seek out Earth-like planets, and SETI radio telescopes listen for transmissions from aliens, physical evidence for intelligent extraterrestrials might be right in our backyard."

Why associate such cases with ET? It's called Occam's razor, wherein the simplest solution is likely the correct one. So ETs traveling unknown light years across space just to do a few random flybys and not bother to make contact is simpler than a few people misidentifying what they saw? The only way this would make sense is if you embrace ET evidence that can't be proven. If you would only judge ETs based on the facts, the simplest solution is they are not here.

brandofamber's point of the Lagrange point doesnt hold water, your thinking in Earthmans terms who needs to get to orbital velocity or sit in these points. A true space faring race wouldnt be bothered with orbit or this gravitational point because it would have developed a propulsion system that can go anywhere at will. They wouldnt need to orbit or sit a Lagrange point. To deny every single well documented case that has multiple witness,radar observation and photographic evidence with police or military interaction is just denial.

Sort of like looking for radio signals when light speed or better is needed to travel the stars. Err... Because of Time Dilation you never need to exceed light speed to get anywhere in the Universe.

Why have we never found evidence of extraterrestrial probes in our universe? A new study suggest that, from a mathematical point of view, we have not looked in enough places. http://www.futurity.org/science-technology/are-alien-probes-hiding-in-vast-space/ What evidence is there that they are hiding? The evidence is that they can come and go as they please in our air space; is it really far fetched that they are mingling with the population too?

Here we go again with booNyzarC pretending as if he/she has 'just stumbled across this whole, UFO thing...' Ridiculous. You know darn well of the Battle of LA, for example. And if you don't by now it's clearly out of willful ignorance. You've been directed to it repeatedly. And booN, myself and others discussed the case in-depth on the BE threads. Why associate such cases with ET? It's called Occam's razor, wherein the simplest solution is likely the correct one. That's not what Occam's razor says. It says when you have two hypotheses that equally explain an observation then the one with the l... [More]

Here a story from discovery.com http://news.discovery.com/space/our-solar-system-might-be-littered-with-alien-artifacts-111109.html Its nice to see discovery treat the idea with some respect.

There's probably all kinds of things "hiding" in deep space that we can't see. Nothing would surprise me.

Here we go again with booNyzarC pretending as if he/she has 'just stumbled across this whole, UFO thing...' Ridiculous. You know darn well of the Battle of LA, for example. And if you don't by now it's clearly out of willful ignorance. You've been directed to it repeatedly. Are you saying booN has no right to express an opposing opinion in a discussion forum? Where do you get of? You are ignorant of the in depth evaluations of the BOLA case, that booN has already discussed extensively, and it is not a good case for ET at all. Why associate such cases with ET? It's called Occam's razor, wherein... [More]

Here we go again with booNyzarC pretending as if he/she has 'just stumbled across this whole, UFO thing...' Excuse me? Where on earth did this come from? Where exactly did I pretend anything at all? Point out anywhere that I've done that either in this thread or elsewhere. Ridiculous. You know darn well of the Battle of LA, for example. And if you don't by now it's clearly out of willful ignorance. You've been directed to it repeatedly. I know darn well about a lot of cases. I asked Anotheryahoo which cases he or she thought were the best ufo cases ever recorded. Do you have a problem with me ... [More]

not throwing away say 99% of the material to put that 1% into space like we do. agreed. brute force rockets are quite exhilarating, and always the wrong choice for space travel. 'ring laser gyros'
