In the past decades, we have had hundreds of theories regarding alien life and whether they have a life that’s advanced than that of earth. Now, a recently-published study claims that aliens might have already visited the earth; it’s just that we couldn’t find them in the last decades or so. According to the study, our galaxy, the Milky Way, is home to a variety of extraterrestrial species, many of which are advanced enough to have come and visited the earth. Based on this idea, it’s very easy to believe that these beings would have come to earth, even at a time when we were not capable of understanding their presence.
The study was published in the journal named the Astronomical Journal and this explanation works as one response for the popular Fermi Paradox. The Fermi Paradox has questioned why we humans haven’t been able to detect the presence of extraterrestrial being, if at all they exist. This paper puts forth an answer that is based on the different timings of this expected visit from non-earth beings. The study also adds that these beings are taking an extraordinary amount of time so that they can harness their journey across the stars as well as galaxies.
Authors of the current study have proposed two interpretations so far: first, aliens have already visited us, but we were not able to detect their presence at that time. The second interpretation is that they are being so strategic and looking for the best time to establish contact or possibly, colonize earth. “If you don’t account for the motion of stars when you try to solve this problem, you’re basically left off with two solutions. Either nobody leaves their planet or we are in fact the only technological civilization in the galaxy,” says Jonathan Carrol-Nellenback to Air News Paper, who is the lead author of the study.
