As Kaku defined, whereas he does personally suppose that “aliens out there would be friendly,” we “can’t gamble on it”.
Michio Kaku, professor of theoretical physics at City College, New York and a distinguished populariser of science, has warned about potential perils related to mankind’s makes an attempt to set up contact with extraterrestrial life.
In an interview with The Observer, Kaku argued he thinks “the chances are quite high that we may make contact with an alien civilisation” in the not-so-distant future, contemplating that “soon we’ll have the Webb telescope up in orbit and we’ll have thousands of planets to look at”.
He famous, nevertheless, that whereas a few of his colleagues consider humanity ought to attain out to these up to now hypothetical alien civilisations on the market, he considers it a “terrible idea,” pointing at the sixteenth century Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire.
“So I think we will make contact but we should do it very carefully,” the professor suggested.
