China is searching for aliens & USA: “This can be dangerous”!
John Herz, the former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the US-based SETI Institute (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence), which searches for signals of hypothetical extraterrestrial intelligence, is concerned about the participation of China in the same project and the program of METI (Messaging to Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence), involves sending signals from possible alien civilizations.
According to Hertz, sending signals to alien civilizations, if the latter exist, can be dangerous for mankind.
China’s participation in these activities caused particular concern to the former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the SETI Institute, primarily due to the detection capabilities of the PRC signals of extraterrestrial civilizations and the prospects for further disclosure to the international community the country received information.
Of particular concern of the expert called the commissioning of the FAST (Five hundred meter Aperture Spherical Telescope), the world’s largest radio telescope with a filled aperture. China has already stated that the Observatory will participate in project Breakthrough Listen, involving the search of extraterrestrial civilizations.
