Humanity has no official evidence of the existence of extraterrestrial life, but the thought of the possibility of making contact with intelligent aliens definitely excites the mind.
However, in parallel, our archaic fear of the dark, of something unknown, is awakening. Therefore, we have objections when we hear that scientists are engaged in a targeted search for “brothers in mind.”
Here are four of the most common objections to finding aliens and valid counterarguments to them.
It’s insanely expensive
This statement is completely untrue. The annual maintenance of a small radio telescope equipped with the latest technology will cost less than the creation of an average attack helicopter.
What is the most expensive attack helicopter? Similar to what you have read earlier, the most expensive attack helicopter is the Boeing AH-64 Apache. It carries a price tag of $52 million.
Of course, for an ordinary person, such an amount is large, but large countries are engaged in the search for aliens and for them such an amount is not cosmic.
Aliens don’t use radio communications, and if they do, we still won’t understand them
If the aliens are intelligent and are studying the universe, then they have discovered many natural radio sources, which led to the emergence of radio physics, radio astronomy and radio transmission technologies.
Yes, brothers in mind can be incredibly progressive, but it is unlikely that this will cause a complete rejection of convenient and cheap radio communications.
The universe is miraculously homogeneous, the laws of nature are the same everywhere, so science will become the natural language of communication.
One and zero will always be one and zero, even if they have some strange names. In other words, it will be easier to decipher an alien message than to receive it.
If we find very advanced aliens, it will be humiliating to know that we are primitive
Undoubtedly, pride will suffer, but it has suffered before, when it was proved that the Earth revolves around the Sun, and not vice versa, and indeed the solar system is not the center of the universe.
In a few centuries, all our achievements and inventions will be considered, to put it mildly, primitive, but do not forget that the goal of modern science is to surpass itself.
Acquaintance with progressive aliens can give a powerful impetus to the development of mankind, which will leave behind racial, religious, political, economic and other conflicts. We can become much better.
They will destroy us or devour us!
We think aliens will be belligerent and violent because we think they are like us. Therefore, guided by the subconscious fear of the majority, scientists are trying to receive signals, and not transmit them into space.
Even if we assume that aliens are the same as us, then making an incredibly expensive, long and dangerous flight to start a war is the height of madness.
For example, Seth Shostak , an American astronomer and employee of the SETI Institute (search for extraterrestrial life), is sure that if aliens decide to fly to us, then only with good intentions.
Former US Air Force fighter pilot: UFOs use Star Trek-style warp drive

the method behind the extraordinary maneuvers of UFOs, reports dailystar.co.uk.

crafts have been reported, prompting a significant investigation by the

believes that the explanation lies within a technology that seems
straight out of science fiction. He proposes that the answer to the UFO
enigma lies in the Alcubierre Drive, a theoretical interstellar engine
conceptualized by Mexican physicist Miguel Alcubierre in 1994.
Alcubierre Drive employs a form of “space warp” technology, reminiscent
of what has been depicted in episodes of Star Trek. By bending space, a
craft inside a “warp bubble” could potentially travel at or even
surpass the speed of light without violating the known laws of physics.
the Alcubierre Drive remains a hypothetical concept with challenges to
overcome, Chris notes that the required energy is no longer believed to
be unattainably large.

American aerospace engineer Salvatore Pais.

However, Chris maintains skepticism regarding Pais’
theory. He explains that while Pais’s patent applications for the US
Navy attracted attention for their potential energy-related
applications, doubts have been raised about their feasibility. There is
speculation that they may be scams, pseudoscience, or disinformation
intended to mislead adversaries of the United States.

project testing similar advanced technologies discussed by Chris.
A Mysterious Earth-Like Planet Has Just Appeared in Our Solar System, Scientists Say
Scientists say they have found evidence of a new Earth-like
planet that has suddenly appeared in our Solar System and is orbiting
Physicists, including those from the National Astronomical Observatory
of Japan, said the planet is likely to be the mysterious ‘Planet Nine’
that was hypothesised to exist in the far outer edges of the Solar
Several studies in the past have suggested there is likely an
undiscovered planet beyond the Kuiper Belt – a stellar disk of materials
such as asteroids, space rocks, comets around the Sun in the outer
Solar System past the orbit of Neptune.
Independent.co.uk reports: In the new research, published recently in The Astronomical Journal, scientists
found that some of the objects in the Kuiper Belt behave in a way
indicative of the presence of a small planet among them.
One such object, they said, is about 500 astronomical units (AU) from
the Sun, where 1 AU is the distance between the Sun and the Earth.
In comparison Neptune is at a distance of 30 AUs from the Sun.
Some of these were also found to have “odd” orbits suggesting they
are being pull by the gravity of a cosmic entity larger than those that
typically influence such objects.
Computer simulations run by the scientists indicate that the most
likely explanation for the observations was another hidden planet in the
“We predict the existence of an Earth-like planet,” researchers wrote in the study.
“It is plausible that a primordial planetary body could survive in
the distant Kuiper Belt as a Kuiper Belt planet (KBP), as many such
bodies existed in the early solar system,” they added.
If such a planet exists, researchers say it would have a mass about
1.5 to 3 times that of Earth with an inclination of about 30 degrees.
They say the theorised planet’s orbit would likely place it between 250 and 500 AU from the Sun.
Researchers say the discovery of such a planet close to the Kuiper
Belt can unravel new constraints on planet formation and evolution.
“In conclusion, the results of the KBP scenario support the existence
of a yet-undiscovered planet in the far outer solar system,” scientists
