Re: Skyline Trailer
I'm intrigued by what Hawking really said though. He said that the possibility of discovering extra-terrestrial life out there could possibly be harmful or catastrophic for us on Earth. What if we're not along in the universe, yet no one knows about us? Let's say there is more intelligent life out there with vastly superior capabilities than us, wouldn't we be looking for trouble by sending signals so far into the reaches of space? Realistically, Earth and all it's simple creatures can be hiding here in this galaxy safe and protected. The same can't then be said if we're discovered by one of these radio wave signals we are emitting. Who knows what would come looking for us. I think that's Hawking's point of view.
