STEPHEN HAWKING IS WARY ABOUT CONTACTING ALIENS.
Earthlings, including Stephen Hawking, have been fascinated by the idea of picking up ‘messages’ from outer space for decades, and when a signal was picked up early in 2016, scientists were in an uproar. But Hawking has warned against responding to these messages in a film called Stephen Hawking’s Most Favourite Places, emphasising that mankind doesn’t know who is out there or what their intentions could be. Contact could be perilous and lead a potential catastrophe (as most of the popular alien invasion movies have taught us over the years).
