Top Scientist Claims Humans Will Encounter Aliens by 2031
HuffingtonPost - A top Russian astronomer claimed Monday that humans will encounter extraterrestrial life by 2031. “Life exists on other planets and we will find it within 20 years,” the scientist Andrei Finkelstein said, according to the Interfax News Agency. The astronomer added that 10 percent of known planets circling suns in the galaxy resemble Earth, making life on such planets highly likely, and that aliens are most likely to resemble humans with two arms, two legs and a head, per Reuters. Finkelstein made the remarks at the opening of the international symposium called “The Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence” in St. Petersburg, The Voice Of Russia reported. He says he is convinced based on the fundamental laws of life that life exists throughout the universe.
Way to go out on a limb here, Andrei. I don’t really think you have to be a top scientist in your field to make a prediction like, “in the next 20 years we’re going to encounter fucking aliens.” Of course that’s gonna happen. Honestly, how could it not? We’re advancing exponentially as a species, our technology will make it happen. But let’s say we don’t encounter E.T. in 20 years. Oh well, no one will care if he was wrong, no one will remember that shit. But if Andrei’s prediction comes through BOOM he looks like a genius. I’m not buying it. Way to go out there and make such a bold prediction like this, Nostradamus.
