The First Alien Spacecraft to Arrive on Earth Won't Be the First , Here's Why

 If people ever come into contact with extraterrestrial civilizations, then communication with them will be very difficult due to the huge distances between us.

Scientist Graham Smith from California State University, USA, has published a new paper in which he claims that the first spacecraft of an extraterrestrial civilization to arrive on Earth, in fact, will not be the first to be sent by aliens. And there are quite objective reasons for this, writes ScienceAlert.

In his article, Smith writes that someday an alien spacecraft will arrive in the solar system, which could forever change the course of human history as a whole. This will be the first contact, which will allow you to get new technologies and knowledge from another civilization. But then people will wait for the next such device. Whole centuries will pass before he arrives, but during this time our civilization may change greatly.

The first spacecraft of aliens will not actually be the first

“So, several hundred years have passed, human technology has stepped forward and now a second spacecraft arrives from the same extraterrestrial civilization. But it turns out that it is technologically much more primitive than the first contact apparatus. And it brought with it older information about an alien civilization. This means that it was sent earlier than the one that arrived on Earth centuries ago, meaning that the first spacecraft from an extraterrestrial civilization to arrive on Earth will not actually be the first sent by aliens, writes Smith.

The fact is that technologies, both on Earth and on other planets with developed intelligent life, do not stand still. This means that over time, the aliens launched into space a more advanced spacecraft that could reach greater speeds than its predecessor. That is, the theoretical second, tenth or maybe even the hundredth apparatus sent by extraterrestrial intelligence will fly to us faster than the very first one, which was sent from a distant planet. According to Smith, the farther away an extraterrestrial civilization is from us, the greater will be the technological gap between the first contact apparatus and the one that will arrive immediately behind it.

“Most likely, the very first apparatus that the aliens will send will not be sent to other stars, but will be designed to study their planetary system. It will be something similar to our Voyagers, which have already gone to the stars, but this was not their original goal. But this alien vehicle will be primitive and will fly to us for a very long time, ”says Smith.

Smith believes that extraterrestrial intelligence will develop its technology and create ever faster spacecraft that will go to other stars at different intervals.

“Take, for example, the Voyager 1 apparatus. It can be considered the first apparatus that went to the stars and to potential aliens. But it will take about 80 thousand years to reach a planet theoretically inhabited by an intelligent species. But humanity will develop its technologies and every 100 years will send faster vehicles to the same planet. For example, in 2700 years we will send the 27th generation apparatus, which will be able to reach the originally set point in 6 thousand years. That is, it will arrive 74 thousand years earlier than " Voyager 1," Smith says.

The scientist writes that the same thing will happen with the alien apparatus, and therefore not the first space probe that has flown to us will be just an old technological artifact. 

Problems of first contact with aliens

  • Smith highlights one potential problem in this regard. If the first apparatus from aliens has too advanced technologies, then earthlings simply will not be able to understand anything and will not learn anything. Smith agrees with some scientists that the first contact of earthlings will occur with a more technologically advanced civilization. Perhaps that is why we cannot explain many of the evidence about the appearance of UFOs, because these are incredibly distant technologies from us.
  • The scientist also highlights another problem that humanity will face during the first contact with aliens using their spacecraft. Countries may start arguing among themselves over who owns the primary research rights for new technologies, which can lead to global conflict.
  • And the third important problem is that many scientists consider aliens not only an advanced species, but also a peaceful one that explores the galaxy and looks for other intelligent life forms. But the history of mankind shows that even after thousands of years wars have not ended on our planet, and people have not become more peaceful. Why can't aliens follow the same path? Maybe they have become space paranoid and everywhere they look for danger to their existence. And people can become such a danger.

The same Stephen Hawking has repeatedly said that it is not necessary to declare oneself ahead of time in space, that is, it is not necessary yet to send signals to potential aliens and spacecraft to the stars. Because the answer from an extraterrestrial civilization may not like earthlings very much.

Focus has already written about a new theory that explains why extraterrestrial civilizations have not yet declared themselves or why we have not detected these signals from aliens.
