Astrophysicist warns: ‘Aliens Plan an Invasion of Earth and You’re Next!’

How many times have we seen alien invasions in films and television shows? Fingers are most likely missing in order to count them. But what if there was a true alien invasion?

Jacco Van Loon, an astrophysicist and director of the Keele Earth and Space Observatory on the campus of Keele University in England, has warned that advanced aliens could easily perceive humans as a threat and wipe us out.

Professor Van Loon explains in an article published on the news portal ‘The Conversation’ that the first signs of life on our planet appeared about 3.5 billion years ago, but the Universe has existed for more than 10 billion years.

If we accept the theory that life is not unique to Earth, it is highly likely that something came before us and is far more advanced, assuming that these aliens followed the same trajectory as life on Earth.

The astrophysicist explains why aliens haven’t yet contacted Earth, claiming that they may regard humans as a primitive species and that an advanced species could easily kill us.

“Aliens may be interested in our planet,” van Loon says.

«The Earth provides ideal conditions for life. If they had to leave their home planet for any reason – such as climate change, nuclear war, or a massive asteroid impact – they might require another home.

“It’s also possible that they’re not looking for friends.” There are numerous examples in history of humans traveling somewhere on Earth and behaving cruelly, killing or enslaving the people who lived there.

“The aliens who settle on Earth may want us to get out of their way.”

‘There is another reason: humans are predators that consume other forms of life. Aliens may find us nutritious or tasty as well. ”

However, following this warning, Professor Van Loon also stated that while aliens may not be interested in us, this does not mean we will not find them in the near future.

On the other hand, it’s possible that a life like ours is actually quite ordinary. We may not have piqued your interest yet, with so many worlds and civilizations to choose from.

“Some aliens may find us boring, difficult to understand, too primitive to deserve their attention, or potentially disease carriers,” the astrophysicist continues.

“Conversations have been taking place across vast expanses of space for many years and have traveled even further.” Some aliens may simply be uninterested in life outside of their own world.

“If that’s the case, we may soon be able to detect alien life around nearby stars.”
