Aliens would be friendly but reaching out a terrible idea: Theorist Michio Kaku

Theorist Michio Kaku says aliens would be friendly but reaching out to them would be a terrible idea because of the threat of the extra-terrestrial life conquering us.

Theorist Michio Kaku believes that reaching out to the aliens would be a terrible idea because of the threat of the extra-terrestrial life conquering us. Michio Kaku, however, also believes that the aliens would be friendly but, he says, it can’t be gambled on.

During an interview, Michio Kaku said now the scientific world will have Webb telescope, a successor to Hubble, which would increase the chances of making contact with the alien civilisation but that, he thinks, would be a terrible idea.

When asked if he’s worried about what making a contact with the aliens would entail, Michio Kaku said the chances of it are high with the Webb telescope.

“Soon we’ll have the Webb telescope up in orbit and we’ll have thousands of planets to look at, and that’s why I think the chances are quite high that we may make contact with an alien civilisation. There are some colleagues of mine that believe we should reach out to them,” he said.

Referring to the fate of Montezuma during the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire back in 1500s, Michio Kaku said he thinks it would be a terrible idea and the aliens should be contacted carefully.

“Now, personally, I think that aliens out there would be friendly but we can’t gamble on it. So I think we will make contact but we should do it very carefully,” Michio Kaku was quoted as saying.
