Aliens won't enslave humans
Will aliens endanger Earth like in movies? One alien hunter says not likely.
Extraterrestrial intelligence that is evolved enough to reach Earth probably will not want to enslave or attack humans, according to renowned astronomer Jill Tarter.
Tarter, outgoing director of Center for SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute, said such alien species would have technology so advanced that they would not need slaves, food, or other planets, Space.com reported.
Tarter said she disagree with famous British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking who said in 2010 that extraterrestrial life is likely to be predatory and could try to exploit Earth’s resources.
“If aliens were to come here, it would be simply to explore. Considering the age of the universe, we probably wouldn’t be their first extraterrestrial encounter, either.”
