Cathal D. O’Connell, a researcher at the University of Melbourne, said the discovery of life and subsequent extraterrestrial contact is inevitable and imminent.
O’Connell mentioned that the discoveries of the last few decades have made extraterrestrial existence a very realistic possibility. He is also convinced that the contact is a fact.
Extraterrestrial contact – is it imminent?
“Extraterrestrial life, that familiar sci-fi trope, that kitsch fantasy, that CGI nightmare, has become a serious talking point, a risk factor, a real-life scenario. Indeed, after a string of major discoveries over the past two decades, the idea of extraterrestrial life is no longer as implausible as it once seemed. Discovery now seems inevitable, even imminent.
In his article, the researcher reveals that astronomers have cataloged thousands of planets orbiting various stars. Interestingly, many of them are in the habitable zone, where the temperatures are ideal for the existence of water.
He even thinks there might be an Earth-like planet orbiting Proxima Centauri, the closest star to our solar system.
O’Connell reveals that life is able to survive in environments that are inhospitable to humans. He believes life can be found in a lake of sulfuric acid, inside barrels of nuclear waste, in water superheated to 122 degrees Celsius, and even in Antarctica.
He adds that Mars was once an ideal place for life. He believes that the presence of methane in its atmosphere is proof that extraterrestrial life once existed there.
Obviously, this brings us closer to the theory that not only was there life on Mars, but that it could have adapted to survive in the climate caused by a nuclear disaster.
Life on Mars?
“Today, Mars still has liquid water underground. A gas strongly associated with life on Earth, methane, has been found in the Martian atmosphere before, and at levels that mysteriously rise and fall with the seasons. Martian insects could appear as soon as possible.”
These words are closest to a situation in which you don’t want to talk about it. Besides, there is one that you want to keep hidden: there could be life on Mars as on Earth.
That a renowned scientist claims that we are on the eve of extraterrestrial contact is incredible. Moreover, he affirms it by being surprisingly categorical.
This is why many experts believe, for years, that the scientific community no longer has any way to hide it. Life outside of Earth exists and we are about to make contact.
Of course, skeptics also suggest that Mr. O’Connell’s statements are nothing more than speculation. The problem is that he is not the only scientist to make this claim.
Avi Loeb, director of Harvard’s astronomy department and one of the leaders of the Breakthrough Listen project, also claimed that alien spacecraft are moving among us. Including one close to Jupiter.
So is there a silent war to discredit these scientists? Or has the scientific community accepted the fact that it is impossible to hide it? Alien contact is imminent.
