Scientist Reveals Why We'll Make Contact With Aliens By End Of Century

A scientist believes that humans will make contact with aliens by the end of the century. Dr Michio Kaku, of US TV series Ancient Aliens, has said that following the recent leak of UFO footage from the US military, it's likely that aliens do exist.

Speaking to TMZ, the 74-year-old said there are only two explanations for the footage - that it's proof of secret government weaponry, or proof of life beyond our planet.

He said: "I think it can no longer be ruled out, the question of extra-terrestrial visitation. It used to be that only crackpots, hucksters, and people who saw something because they were in a drunken haze.

"They were the people that most people thought were the ones saying they had encountered a flying saucer.

"I think we have to take them seriously. I'm a physicist. We believe in things that are testable, reproducible, and falsifiable.

"In the past they couldn't be tested, it was just an eye-witness account, but now we have videotapes from the United States military, physicists have now analysed these graphs, frame by frame, and we realise that no known commercial or military vehicle can reproduce the gyrations and the velocity of these objects.

"Either they are secret military weapons, like hypersonic drones, or they're from outer space."

And Dr Kaku says that with our species advancing rapidly, becoming more adept at recognising signs of life, it's only a matter of time before we come into contact with an extra-terrestrial civilisation.

He explained: "I think that there's a good likelihood that, in this century, we'll make contact with an alien civilisation. And how do we know this? Because we're getting better at scanning planets in outer space for radio signals.

"So I would expect that if they're that advanced, that they could reach the Earth from outer space, they are probably thousands of years ahead of us in technology, in which case we're like squirrels to them.

"What do we have to offer? Gold? No, gold is a rather useless metal for an extra-terrestrial. We really have nothing to offer them and if anything, they've been observing us for many years, and if they wanted to make contact, they would have done so decades ago."


And for those people who claim to be beam up by an alien spaceship in the future, Dr Kaku has just one request.

"The next time you are kidnapped by a flying saucer, for God's sake, steal something," he says.

"I don't care if it's an alien chip, an alien paperclip, steal something.

"There's no law against stealing from an extra-terrestrial civilisation, no law whatsoever, and you'll have bragging rights, something that we can test in the laboratory.

"That would end the debate right then and there."

Dr Kaku's comments come after footage leaked from the US military was confirmed by the Pentagon as being real.

In the clip, shot back in 2019, three pyramid-shaped UFOs, can be seen hovering over the USS Russell.
