Alien Communication: Humans Allegedly Making Moves To Communicate With Aliens

A group of scientists is currently gearing up for a possible alien communication. The team is reportedly preparing to reach the aliens that they believe exist in the deep space. Despite the warnings from experts that their move might be dangerous to human life, these scientists still insist their goal which might push through some time in 2018.

The scientists at the Messaging Extra Terrestrial Intelligence (METI) are initiating the first ever communication between humans and aliens. According to reports, the group is gathering up to $1 million per year to fund the activity. The scientists will send multiple beam radio signals to any potential alien life to the nearby exoplanet towards the end of 2018.

The new project and the first effort to contact life on the Proxima b hopes to receive a response from any intelligent alien form that might pick up the signal. "If we want to start an exchange over the course of many generations, we want to learn and share information," Douglas Vakoch, president of METI, told the Mercury News.

According to reports, the alien communication could comprise either the radio or laser signals from Earth. The content of the message is yet to be determined as it will be translated to a "universal language" which is far from the spoken language that people on Earth use. "To be intelligible, any message to extraterrestrials needs to be written in a universal language, and that won't be English or Swahili," Vakoch in a statement on his talk with Astronomy.com.

Many other scientist, though, like the physicist Stephen Hawking are opposing the move. Hawking especially warned METI that communicating with aliens might bring an end to the existence human kind. He also said that there is a high possibility that they can be hostile once they found out about the existence of humans through the alien communication project as he is sure that aliens are biologically and technologically more advanced than "Earthlings."
