Aliens may exist but contact would hurt humans: Hawking

LONDON (AFP) – Aliens may exist but mankind should avoid contact with them as the consequences could be
devastating, British scientist Stephen Hawking warned Sunday.

"If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn't turn out well for
the Native Americans," said the astrophysicist in a new television series, according to British media reports.

The programmes depict an imagined universe featuring alien life forms in huge spaceships on the hunt for resources
after draining their own planet dry.

"Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and
colonise whatever planets they can reach," warned Hawking.

The doomsday scenario is suggested in the series "Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking" on the
Discovery Channel, which began airing in the United States on Sunday.

On the probability of alien life existing, he says: "To my mathematical brain, the numbers alone make
thinking about aliens perfectly rational.

"The real challenge is to work out what aliens might actually be like."

*See?!! Aliens MIGHT exist! I still believe my theory of aliens are us in the future" :)
