What Happens If China Makes First Contact?

What Happens If China Makes First Contact?

As America has turned away from searching for extraterrestrial intelligence, China has built the world’s largest radio dish for precisely that purpose.

Last January, the Chinese Academy of Sciences invited Liu Cixin, China’s preeminent science-fiction writer, to visit its new state-of-the-art radio dish in the country’s southwest. Almost twice as wide as the dish at America’s Arecibo Observatory, in the Puerto Rican jungle, the new Chinese dish is the largest in the world, if not the universe. Though it is sensitive enough to detect spy satellites even when they’re not broadcasting, its main uses will be scientific, including an unusual one: The dish is Earth’s first flagship observatory custom-built to listen for a message from an extraterrestrial intelligence. If such a sign comes down from the heavens during the next decade, China may well hear it first.

Well, at least now we know where and how to look, it wasn't until after the 20s that we grew from one galaxy to over a hundred billion today ...

They wouldn't hide the technology away in Area 51 for 60 years and within a year or two there'd be fleets of Chinese commercial interstellar spacecraft plying the spacelanes, I bet.

I wouldn’t get my hopes up for physical communication to or from extraterrestrials. Ultraterrestrials on the other hand; we’ve made contact long ago

I'm all for China making first contact. At least the first person the aliens see won't be Donald Trump.

With the amount of screen time he is receiving, it probably will be him nonetheless

Well then good for China, and I hope they share the information with the rest of us if it happens. And if it happens, I really hope they share it with the rest of us in a timely manner.

I was gonna say, if we're lucky, it won't be Trump making the first contact.

Surely they (the aliens) would've told them (the leaders) to clean their act up, stop arguing and look after the Earth. But they haven't.

Yh you know the Chinese (or whoever makes first contact) will be showing propaganda videos to the 'newcomers'. Saying how great 'they are' and why they shouldn't trust 'the enemy'.

Because they can’t keep a secret to save their careers?

They might just leave us be.  I don't expect aliens to come and tell us to clean up our rooms and do the laundry.

Smart aliens might want to stay out of factional rivalries.  Who wants to visit a family that argues and screams at each other in front of company?

Project this in the other direction.  Do you think China, Russia, Europe, and America will all be sending out individual star ships to visit other races?  That is kind of the colonial model that European nations used to compete for territory in the New world, but I don't think it plays well in space.

Rooms.. laundry??? Good comeback (not) lmao. But yh the aliens might not give a damn just like us.

Smart aliens might you're right but this depends on their intentions.

And yes I cant see North Korea or Iran being invited along to the tea party.. eventually they will have the technology too. 

It might not play well but we've always been the same. We can't change who we are. We invade and impose our Will. Watch the news and documentaries it's a fact and it's happening today, everywhere. Always has.

Sorry you don't like my tongue in cheek attitude.  

SNR, we have not always been the same.  We are not as we were even 200 years ago.  We can change.  It may be too slowly for you, but we can do it.  Consider this.  Change is often induced quickly by outside pressure.  The environment is such a pressure.  If we are to survive for the next 1000 years or longer, we need to change and deal with it.    I think we can.
