It looks like more results of alien-fighting technology are maturing.

Is this a foot-hold situation??


> Talking with aliens, good or bad? <

Contact with extraterrestrials could be beneficial or might destroy the human race ...

Hahaha! In some of the more dire situations, the scientists said aliens could intentionally plan to eat or enslave people on earth.

Yay, I guess that is funny until somebody gets an eye out.

Yeah, if I had the technology to cross dozens of light-years in a short period of time, I'd sure lack the ability to make food out of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and phosphorus...

Hostile aliens won't come here for resources. They'll come here because chasing screaming on-fire humans around in giant clompy metal tripods is *fun.*

Mars doesn't need food or slaves. Mars needs entertainment.

We need to generate more violet programming and broadcast it into space. Aliens who get off on that sort of stuff will be sated and not want to 'kill the goose that laid the violent egg' by destroying the source of their Thursday night programming. Those aliens who are turned off by that sort of thing will avoid us on general principle, so long as we don't appear to be resurrecting our space program...

If they want our women, tentacle porn live action and anime will be a life or death issue for the human race.

What if their women have tentacles?

...oh wait, we have like three or four fanservice alien races like that already....so immediate surrender, apparently.


Yeah right. Their women being tentacled is obviously ridiculous. Duh!


A younger me ate up this kind of stuff.

An older me has this question:

If you can cross the gulf of interstellar space, why exactly are you going to bother conquering us?

What is the motivation?

You can't of course predict what an alien intelligence might decide to do, but I kind of wonder if they are even interested in talking to us.

If you take a step outside of our species for a moment, why exactly are we even worth talking to?

If (and that is a big if) you can cross interstellar space, I can't see that we have any resource or anything really they can't duplicate easily without resorting to an invasion or even trade.


Human minds and the research we have done, the views and understanding of the world that differs from theirs? Sort of like why we would bother researching what old Mayans thought of the world.

He is smart enough to know that if aliens come for us now, we'll end up being their pets.

He's smart where it comes to theorectical physics. On this topic however he's as informed as the guy on the bar stoop next to you.


when the aliens come, we just call for Duke Nukem to save the day. simple.

of course as a backup plan we can always rely on the fact that our species is massively beligerent, and have been killing things since our civilisation first began. after all this time we're getting pretty good at it.

Duke Nukem isn't real dude. Come back to reality.


Just got the lowdown on Area 51 from a guy whose dad ate dinner with a former Physicist there.
Nothing to worry about at all.

as well as boredom, us having astonishing reserves of some natural resource or something stupid, like the high commanders career being on the line and she wants to go out in a blaze of glory.

That or she just wants to do some humans.

Seriously folks, I think surrender should be kept on the table as an option.

Dude, aliens do not take prisoners. It's 1 or 0. Live or Die. Survive or go Extinct at the hands of aliens.

Would we take alien prisoners? No. Now we have to feed them. F that noise.

I always wondered about something. Human beings devote a rather large portion of their time into developing weapons and war. I mean as a species, think of how much of our energy, resources, and inovation go into weapons and war. We always assume that aliens would have a similar ration, thus is they are capable of interstellar travel they will have equally advanced military capability. But what if they show up with bows and arrows because their species never thought to advance beyond that?

Then we will kill them and steal their ride.

Um...while I have no information either way, I would hazard a guess as to actually saying that Humans have spent far more time working on ways to feed and cloth themselves than actually making war.

Indeed, it was the industrial revolution, which was about making one man more productive in many labours that had the side effect of 'industrializing' war. Not the other way around.

Much cheers to you and yours. (^_^)

We have exceptionally good real estate. For all the Earths that exist, there are probably thousands, perhaps millions of close failures which simply don't cut it as habitable planets.

If they've come here their motives would be like ours. Take the land and/or resources and if the vermin get in the way, exterminate them. Actually, just exterminate them first. It would be hard to imagine that we'd have anything to say to each other.

Then we'd exterminate them as someone's obviously bad joke. You get to be top dog on your planet because you're better at toolmaking, survival, and killing than every other species on your planet. You practise it on each other and your tools improve appropriately. If they've mastered star travel, what they're going to be using on us won't be bows and arrows, for the most part, they won't even be fighting us man to man.... they'll be exterminating us from orbit.

Whatever we develop for fighting aliens, we'll beta test it by using it on each other first.

Best guess is they show up and laugh at us.

Do you think genetic cloning will be useful in this endeavor?


I'm going to go ahead and say it. We may need to know math.

fight. block. attack. Win.


Oh No!

Space Ants are apparently blowing up stars and then funneling the energy into "lasers" aimed at Earth!

That won't take much. Its already pretty close to be weaponized as is.


>U.S. Navy Declares Laser Weapons Ready<

Perhaps the U.S. Space Force can borrow this tech.

Does gravity bend laser beams?


I believe so. If black holes can bend light then one would think so.

Yes. Gravity bends light, including lasers. It's probably a non-factor over short distances and Earth's relatively weak gravity.
