Don’t talk to aliens, warns Stephen Hawking (VIDEO)

The aliens are out there and Earth had better watch out, at least according to Stephen Hawking. He has suggested that extraterrestrials are almost certain to exist — but that instead of seeking them out, humanity should be doing all it that can to avoid any contact.

The suggestions come in a new documentary series in which Hawking, one of the world’s leading scientists, will set out his latest thinking on some of the universe’s greatest mysteries.

Alien life, he will suggest, is almost certain to exist in many other parts of the universe: not just in planets, but perhaps in the centre of stars or even floating in interplanetary space.

Hawking’s logic on aliens is, for him, unusually simple. The universe, he points out, has 100 billion galaxies, each containing hundreds of millions of stars. In such a big place, Earth is unlikely to be the only planet where life has evolved.

“To my mathematical brain, the numbers alone make thinking about aliens perfectly rational,” he said. “The real challenge is to work out what aliens might actually be like.”

The answer, he suggests, is that most of it will be the equivalent of microbes or simple animals — the sort of life that has dominated Earth for most of its history.

One scene in his documentary for the Discovery Channel shows herds of two-legged herbivores browsing on an alien cliff-face where they are picked off by flying, yellow lizard-like predators. Another shows glowing fluorescent aquatic animals forming vast shoals in the oceans thought to underlie the thick ice coating Europa, one of the moons of Jupiter.

Such scenes are speculative, but Hawking uses them to lead on to a serious point: that a few life forms could be intelligent and pose a threat. Hawking believes that contact with such a species could be devastating for humanity.

He suggests that aliens might simply raid Earth for its resources and then move on: “We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach.”

He concludes that trying to make contact with alien races is “a little too risky”. He said: “If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.”

The completion of the documentary marks a triumph for Hawking, now 68, who is paralysed by motor neurone disease and has very limited powers of communication. The project took him and his producers three years, during which he insisted on rewriting large chunks of the script and checking the filming.

John Smithson, executive producer for Discovery, said: “He wanted to make a programme that was entertaining for a general audience as well as scientific and that’s a tough job, given the complexity of the ideas involved.”

Hawking has suggested the possibility of alien life before but his views have been clarified by a series of scientific breakthroughs, such as the discovery, since 1995, of more than 450 planets orbiting distant stars, showing that planets are a common phenomenon.

So far, all the new planets found have been far larger than Earth, but only because the telescopes used to detect them are not sensitive enough to detect Earth-sized bodies at such distances.

Another breakthrough is the discovery that life on Earth has proven able to colonise its most extreme environments. If life can survive and evolve there, scientists reason, then perhaps nowhere is out of bounds.

Hawking’s belief in aliens places him in good scientific company. In his recent Wonders of the Solar System BBC series, Professor Brian Cox backed the idea, too, suggesting Mars, Europa and Titan, a moon of Saturn, as likely places to look.

Similarly, Lord Rees, the astronomer royal, warned in a lecture earlier this year that aliens might prove to be beyond human understanding.

“I suspect there could be life and intelligence out there in forms we can’t conceive,” he said. “Just as a chimpanzee can’t understand quantum theory, it could be there are aspects of reality that are beyond the capacity of our brains.”

  1. Says there is no God from els were but says do not chat to aliens funny wet of strife do tell him to try wisdom in for a try 🙂 bless God the holy of holys the all and you all as is as was is as is

  2. Their flying crafts are invisible…even they can be invisible…I also believe they won’t eat us lol. And yes they are far advanced beyond the word we call technology

  3. Here is the model of the car on compressed air.
    Just imagine how the world would have looked like by now if humans would have left the oil where it belonged. In the earth.
    This car was fully operational in 1932

  4. There is no lack of energy sources here on earth.
    There is just a multitude of bad choices.
    There were cars on compressed air in the 1930 ‘s, but the problem was that it is a cheap, clean and efficient principle.
    And, most of all, the compressed air system makes it possible for most individuals to produce their own energy supply.
    With firewood, waterpower, windpower, solar etc etc.

  5. Replace aliens with energy companies, especially oil, for the reason the moons off limits. They know the HE3 (Helium 3) on the moon will solve our energy needs for millenia. Its safe, non-poluting and their is heaps of it. They would be out of business overnight

  6. So far the scenario is such that there was an invitation sent into space about how friendly humans are and a warm welcome was written as a promise.

    But when an airforce sees a flying metal bal or anything else they dont understand, they use it for target practising, without wondering how this thing can fly without wings.
    They shoot first and investigate later.

    A despicable species, with a few exceptions.

  7. Can imagine what aliens would think of the human race checking the comments thoughts and beliefs of the world’s elite .Their knowledge of aliens is so disappointing after all the direct clues put on purpose to enlighten us of their existence. It’s obvious doesn’t apply to all, much still to be done to eliminate this ignorance. They will know how to proceed to this end.

  8. Solar system is not only belongs to humans or creatures in earth , if some life’s exists in our milky way or even from interstellar may considering us as aliens …. well I have only interest to learn about it , but for me religious attitude of people like kind of aliens

  9. We will become their ” Fly in and Pick up meal ” this is already happening…. Over 100,000 Children go MISSING into the thin Air every year Globally… Where do 100,000 children go …..???

  10. Find thrse books if anyone is interested. The Blue Planet Project, the red book, the yellow book (of aliens). Check Dr Steven Greer ifctje Sirius discloser, check Charles Hall at Millinial Hospitality for starters plus deep underground military bases. Solar Warden

  11. Under one breath he says ther is non and then the next don’t talk to Alians ?????? Is ther or isn’t there ????? Steven tell us ther trowth……!!!! Because ther hear arnt thay !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️

  12. some ETs have their fingers in this game for a long time and are influencing us. why would they just blow up our planet? its much smarter to just exploit us the way we dont even realize that its them controlling us! or havent you noticed yet that our planet is being terraformed?

  13. Or is that just what we’ve been programmed to believe? All films made have elements of true to them. They call this Soft Disclosure. The aliens in the first Independence Day are based on a real species, but that species are very passive and nice. So, it all gets twisted to suit those who don’t want to lose slaves of their system…the elite are the ones who want us to make them rich.

  14. Why r u ppl so mean to him he is a smart person like Einstein there are evil ailans to like ppl alians r real god is not there’s no proof of god or angles but there are proof of aliens

  15. They don’t stay away – they just cloak themselves in clouds (especially the lenticular cloud formations) or remain in higher dimensions watching and guiding us.

  16. Why would they want to talk to our primitive asses ? We kill each other off, destroy our own planet and everything on and in it ! We are the dangerous ones and maybe that’s why they stay away ?

  17. I swear that Steven hawking has been hijacked. How come he’s the only one who can talk via computer that’s not even hooked up to him. I swear someone types up his supposed “words”. He’s a public figure that everyone believes because he’s just so darn charismatic and inspiring. But what if everything we have been told was from the mind of Steven hawking was just a lie, a ruse, misinformation. There’s no technology that allows people to talk via computer that your not even plugged into. I call bullshit. Poor man.

  18. Mary, you might want to look at a website named
    A lot of good researched info there.

    Anyway, I agree, only someone with extremely low self esteem puts down a person with a disability. Disagreeing is one thing but jabs show how childish another can be.

  19. really so you are going to tell us that we shoujld not talk with aliens well we cant trust you when you have no clue about if they are more intelligent than we are or not mabye they have something when they are sending us messages in the very letters UFO are asking us if we are U as in You and then F as in Failing grade and then O as per se oh really we are carrying that letter grade of F which we must reconcile from the beginning when Adam was given the grade of “F” which we see clearly from the observable world that it was in fact not adam and eve’s sin though in reality so until you start over mr hawking from the beginning to see that very fact which is also revealed from the new theory of everything where the first sentence by dimitri nanopoulos stated in his first sentence which says….”the key point was when we realized that strings dont have the specific representation-Oh Jesus”…there we see from science where they are seekng the ansswer to string theory is revealed from… “the new theory of everything” by dimitri nanopoulos…we see from science that God has chosen string theory to reveal the truth via Jesus himself showing us that it was Adam’s Mark not adam and eve’s sin so get over it mr hawking and dont tell me who or whom to talk with when you have yet to reconcile the trutn relevant to our very beginning…

  20. Poor Mr. Hawking. He is so clueless about many things. Our ET friends could even help Stephen to regain all of his faculties. but apparently, he is impervious to truth. They have been visiting our planet for millions of years. If they had wanted to, they could have destroyed our planet a long time ago. Instead, it is child humanity who is destroying the planet. Most of the ETs are here to help us, not hurt us.

  21. really good point. if they exist which they most probably do they would have used up their planet resources( and many others) and would probably want a little piece of earth as well.

  22. the thing is…. they are far more evolved than we are….they are telepathic and will know our INTENTIONS before our ACTIONS! Keep Cool, keep an OPEN HEART and be RESPECTFUL! They are after all…OUR ELDERS!!!! 🙂

  23. Aliens have been part of our civilization thousands of years whether you want to believe it or not the proof is all around us and if you don’t see it look to Egypt Stephen Hopkins as smart as he is he also has an agenda don’t get it twisted aliens are here they are among us they watch us to what degree they have deals with our government nobody will ever know all I can say is government doesn’t want people to know that they are making deals with extraterrestrial life shame on government if you’re an alien just say so no big deal

  24. Crap like this aggravates me. First of all Christopher Columbus did not discover America the Vikings did. Second of all the extraterrestrials are among us and have been since the beginning of time. All of the governmental systems around the globe are aware of this and they have been in contact with them but we as commoners and peasants are not to know this nor are we to contact them and they us. There are many different types of species pertaining to the extraterrestrials that is correct and some of them are not very friendly. As a matter of fact some of them see us as a food source. There are over 1 million people that go missing worldwide each year. Have you ever ask yourself where they disappear to!? But neither here or there among the different species there are good and intelligent beings that are curious about us humans and would enjoy contact to share information. It’s just like our own human race where there are good human beings and there are bad. For the most part though their technology exceeds us by a long shot and their level of communication and way of thinking is far superior to us. I say we are all gods creatures and given the opportunity to make contact with another life form outside of our planet I would do without hesitation. You never know what you might learn………and you may just make a new friend. R.R.Cummings

  25. Truly, Lisa, they know we can panic, if you run, they will not chase you. Just don’t make physical contact or pull a weapon. They are very quick to defend themselves. And just don’t scare their children if present. Especially, where Tall Whites are concerned!

  26. Why not the ones I was abducted by didn’t harm me the did what was needed and went on their way I mean yeah the human race sucks and they know that if they want us gone we won’t see it coming

  27. Even tiny dots that we see with our own eyes (a dot on the living room carpet for example) will be an endless universe in its own right – the principle of that being that something has to be made up of something – something cannot be made up of nothing.

  28. It is said that there are 5 universes with 5 antimatter counterparts. But even if it is just this universe, it is said that there is an antimatter universe with a polarity barrier that can be navigated. Read of 2 Nordic races from the other side.. Fiction? I feel sources are credible.

  29. The truth of the matter is that we on this planet are an insignificant microscopic dot in the context of how big space is and simply do not matter.

  30. There is an endless number of other galaxies and even an endless number of other universes. There will be an endless number of earth like planets throughout space as well – so it is not beyond logic that there are an endless number of other me’s and other people from this group throughout space as well – what ever elements have come together to make me and others on this planet can quite easily have done the same thing on an endless number of other earth like planets as well

  31. 100% false. He not taking into account of how intelligent a million, billion or trillion year old species would be. If they are beyond any intellect that we can fathom, traveling star system instantaneously or genetically creating other species/ shaping worlds……then I’m pretty sure they have found a way to be self sustaining. Without the perishable resources that we have to use. People don’t give them enough credit and assume they will be like us. Hence why they don’t even contact us and or just use us for experimentation. It’s sad and pathetic that we are too stupid enough to even be communicated with…….( almost how we walk upon an ant hill, walking by it with no concern because we look down upon their intelligence ).

  32. Given that space is endless in all directions – it would be rather arrogant of humans to think that we were the only intelligent creatures throughout the whole of it. What ever has made us here could quite easily have made intelligent beings in an endless number of other places throughout space as well.

  33. I really dont thing its a good idea to joke with that… Not about the marijuana… Most of that kases are not because of that, they are caused of blood mixture, DNA, radiation…. This is an desease not a thing that you should joke with whatever the preson is…. what if happens or your child?! Is it going to be funny again ?

  34. Intelligent lifeforms created us and now they are selecting those who conform to their needs. the rest considered to be useless surplus (rubbish) will be disposed of. As has happened many times in the past.prepare yourself for mass annihilation of the dregs of is foretold,there is a book that explains it all that not many people bother to read,it is called the BIBLE.

  35. We are an alien for them , we are creating every thing cause we are all energy they are too ,its all about what your looking for , universe is about to balance , it is all up to us what we want , if you think an aline is bad for you then it is .i dont think and its not for me ☯☮⚛⭐️

  36. Too late they are here! They just pulled up and peeps are talking to them…giving all of our secrets away like How donald Trump is a loser and that we might be going back to coal mines if he is elected!

  37. Seeing as people have come forward and admitted to giving Stephen Hawkins’ answers and that they know aliens are out in the sky currently waiting to give full disclosure about what our governments are doing to harm US, and seeing as these aliens are trying to protect humanity from being destroyed by its governments, of course ‘Stephen Hawkins’ is saying they’re bad. Because if the truth comes out, then the elite wont rule the world anymore. This is why they’re running to bunkers right now.

    • I don’t know history has proven time and time again that when a more advanced civilization finds a Lesser one it goes pretty bad for the weaker civilization

    • Tyler Hill and anybody else interested in helping us get out of this crap we’re in, please check out the Cobra Resistance website. If you read the bit that is about the resistance movement you will find the truth. There are plenty of ways we can all help this world. The more that help, the quicker we will shed this slavery.

    • It makes me sad to think the ones who will die are the open minded. The people who would go peacefully. The elite will survive, it’s bullshit. It shouldn’t be rich corruption moves on. It should be the opens who want change. A new way.

  38. That is if they want to talk to us at all or can hear our primitive radio signals, most likely we would make contact with someone on our tech level or slightly more advanced say about a few 100 years ahead of us

  39. Fuck that …there’s good and bad all over …mostly good so why shouldn’t we get to know each other ….there is a bigger treat here among our own deceiving us and using us …..we all know that it is the same out there on a bigger scale and with different set ogf rules we will get to know by getting invilved and use our instincts to guide us ….with the help of our guardian angels …..NAmaste .

    • Really…you really think they are sentient beings? Have you even met one in person? Read thier thoughts see what they do behind your back?

      Of course there are a few who are nice…But it don’t speak for the rest that do hate humans…

      Be smart don’t be naive

    • Neil Vidican have you yourself met one…

      Have you ever talked to one…

      You can’t say and assume if you haven’t met one…

      I’ve met about four types of aliens already…and I’m not making it up…I was not abducted either…But I was able to communicate with them or see them…

      I’ve seen the regular greys…the reptillian…the mantids…and the ones that look like the klingon on star trek but I do not know what thier real names are…But they weren’t nice…they were working alongside your government…

      Now…I’m not saying all of them are bad…I’m did meet two mantids who did not follow protocol and did not eat humans like thier kind…

      Actually alot of them do eat humans…the reptillians do…

      Majority of Aliens are not here to be friends with you…Only reason you are still alive is because like chickens the farmer gotta breed alot of you guys for the feast…

      Reason how I know? You’re not ready to know what I really am or how I know if you are naive to think they are not gonna hurt you…

      I don’t care what movies say…I only care about the TRUTH…and if I have to go through the humans social media to warn you all then that’s what I gotta do…

      Out of a few thousand only one or two are nice or considered the “vegans” of the species…

      It’s like trying to say humans are nice and will never kill a chicken when vast majority do eat chicken and only a handful are true vegans…

      Go ahead and run into one I assure you they will not be nice…you will regret it…

      You prolly don’t even know that there are many who live as humans are not even humans…their soul is different…Thier heritage goes way back to whatever they were first originally as before they incarnated as a human…

      You have a lot to learn don’t try to school me if you haven’t met any in person…Don’t be leading people astray and to be naive to think aliens will not hurt anyone which is a lie…

      Even animals are smarter than humans…they run…

  40. Yes it is a risk, not all life would have the best intentions, but if we never take or taken risks we’d never be where we are today and if we don’t take the risk we’ll most likely degenerate, it’s risk, curiosity that drives mankind

  41. He is a hypocrite. One minute he is saying they are trying to find extraterrestrial life and says they haven’t found any yet now he is saying this. He may be very intelligent but also perhaps using that to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes.

  42. That drooling vegetable is wrong…we’ve been sending probes and signals into space for decades. Also, the whole indian comparison…..the white man was not invited by the indians..the white men invited themselves. And we’ve been taking pot shots at aliens for decades, getting any technology that can be perverted into weapons. And WE are the scary monsters, not the aliens.

  43. Yeah he said that awhile back. So why has he changed his tune? Couple weeks ago him and the Facebook dude funded a project to launch a bunch of tiny space drones to a star system.. Can’t remember the name

    • …lisa……if all are born as babies and they know nothing by their own….doesn’t mean they have the same mother…..
      you have the opportunity and rights to believe whatever you want …so i…and so them….

  44. Too late, they have been here for thousands of years, they are in the Bible. In fact, they created us, by combining their DNA with the stage of Earth evolution that we were at when they came. “The Gods created Man it their Image.” I think we were at Homo Erectus. Read “DNA of the Gods,” by Christine H. Hardy.

  45. this blokes a bloody joke. he aint got a clue, one min he says dnt contact them, then he wants to contact them. now hes saying dont talk to them. why would they want to talk to us, we would try to kill them anyway

  46. I love debating this discussion. I also love Stephen Hawkings but my argument to his theory is, regardless of how you look at it.. God or aliens… Non-terrestrial life by all descriptions on the planet, even the bible, say they (or one person) came here and left and we are still here. His theory is based off of human principle’s and understanding. After all, look at how we treat each other. We can’t stop fighting or killing each other over land, resources, who’s in control, who’s word is law. The galactic sign in the video is mistaken. It’s not at earth saying call us now, it’s way out of our solar system as a caution sign saying primitive, greedy, warlike cheating race ahead, approach at extreme risk. To believe or not believe one or the other is hypocritical of the other since both are the same. God or Aliens, they are both non-terrestrial. Does anyone actually think we as a species are ready to deal with another intelligent species besides trying to kill it, conquer it or worship it?

  47. You don’t have to wait for disclosure! Haven’t you heard of that famous “Blue Planet Project Book” it reveals some amazing facts about government involvement with aliens, genetic experiments, and amazing technology using alien knowledge:

  48. The BLUE PLANET PROJECT book has some interesting illustrations of different types of aliens. It is also claimed that they were smuggled out by a government scientist working on top secret projects with aliens. Could they be real?

  49. Other aliens could be repressed totalitarians like many on Earth would like, or they may be socially superior which means they wouldn’t be so single minded and would recognize the interconnectivity of all things. So many things not dreamt in your philosophy, Horatio.

  50. There is nothing beyond the capacity of our brains if we learn to open our minds, our brains have so much more capacity than we use as is. We just need to evolve and learn to tap into it

  51. i can only say religion still make world´s biggest mass graves around the world thats why i dont trust religion .

  52. Can not be that clever if he thinks that they have not already contacted. Probably another false front from the government. Wake up Stephen and release your potential.

  53. We already talked to them! “CONVERSATION WITH ALIENS” Just Released!
    This book reveals so many secrets of the different alien races… find out what they want you to know and what they don’t want you to find out!

  54. Well I’m quite sure that mr. Hawking is right,we have to be very carefully about contacting alien,see how we are behaving ourselves to other species here,it’s very possible they will use humanity as food source,experts say that human flesh is delicious, with that in mind plus our brhavior it will be best to avoid contact,at least then we have the hope to survive a little more time before we extinct ourself and the rest of the life beings …….that’s it ? ? ?

  55. Haha haha we already are.!!!
    No one can run away from what is. No more of yourself!
    Because that’s like saying don’t talk to anyone else because we are also aliens!
    Stephen hawking should know better.

  56. I find Steven hawking talks through his arse as he speaks about the laws of physics and so you would think he wouldn’t just be saying how aliens are predatory if they came to earth but what about multidimential travel through the subconscious there are higher beings that surely are not here to take over mankind or destroy the earth what a lot of fear mongering shit shame on you Steven hawking

    • Ha ha ha ha ha ha I’m with you on that one. And it’s a real smelly are cos he’s always on it.
      Just because he’s in a wheel chair and “supposed to be brainy” everyone feels sorry for him and believes the shot he talks.

    • Sounds like you guys are having a game of ” who’s imaginary Alien is more benign than the others “.
      Just one question, how guilty do you feel as an evolved enlightened entity you slaughter millions of lesser evolved bacterium every time you use body wash or soap. ?

    • we are all biologically connected to the universe the earth that you live on is a cell,your body has trillions of cells living and dying everyday it’s called the life cycle! and as for imaginary aliens its your own mind which perceives the way you see things. your heart has a pulse that is in tune to the cosmic vibrations I think I’d personally prefer to see enlightened beings than predatory zeta greys or reptilians that have connections to the government which makes me wonder that what Steven hawking is saying about aliens is apart of the agenda!

    • I suppose what you believe is what you believe, no one is right or wrong.
      Its ludicrous to think that in the universe we are the only ones.
      However, Icant help but think that since it’s taken 3 and a half billion years (a quarter of the time the universe has existed ), a random fluky joining of two separate biological entities (bacteria and mitochondria ) and several necessary cataclysm’s,for life to evolve here.
      so I believe that life is extremely rare, and spread across the entire universe.
      So it would be an enormous distance for other beings to travel just to say hi.

  57. I am afraid I will have to agree totally with that conjecture .
    The one thing we have in our favour is that if you work out the mathematical likely hood of intelligence using the Drake equasion, then distribute the resultant number throuout our galaxy, then their a lot further away than merely saying it implies.
    Thank goodnes for out insignificance.

  58. John McDonald my favourite part is here..
    To me it’s as simple as the human eye not seeing all the colour spectrum that is present..
    I’m really glad that such a scientifically brilliant yet scientifically limited brain has finally woken a bit more..
    His fear is a bit of a concern though as he should well know that we are on a collision course to extinction and planetary desolation at the hands of the “leaders” of our species anyway..
    Watch our species slowly destroy our home or meet some new type of assholes and watch them do it?? At least we will meet someone new hey?

    • Mr. Hawking is a puppet. He would never say anything he wasn’t allowed to say. I’m sure he knows the truth.

  59. Mr Hawkings is great but he doesn’t believe in God or uses any spirituality which is why I believe he is suffering. When Science replaces spirituality and God then it is just satanic thinking. Life exists outside our world because we would have to be very arrogant and egotistic to believe we are the only ones. Watch Ancient Aliens and get educated!

    • Joe, thats a pretty profound statement to make on Mr. Hawkings suffering. I am a fervant believer in the Lord and I suffer greatly with an auto-immune disease. Believing in God may not lessen sufferings. Suffering is a great mystery in life. We simply do not know why some are chosen to suffer and others have much easier lives. Whether Mr. Hawking is a believer or not may not change his condition. It would however, give him hope for a better future with Our Lord and the Heavenlies.

    • Idiotic ! Just because someone doesn’t choose to believe what you believe doesn’t make it satanic ! And that entire video is ridiculous propaganda from the point of view of a military minded unevolved species bent on destroying what it can’t profit off of .
