Humans are not clever enough to pick up alien signals!
We could be oblivious to their messages from aliens, because humanity is not yet able to pick up the signals. This is according to Dr Nathalie Cabrol, who is leading the hunt for alien life at the Seti Institute.
She believes, in our lifetime, we’ll find simple alien organisms close to Earth and a replica of our planet in another galaxy.
Finding intelligent life, however, may not be as easy – largely because of our own limited view of the universe.
In an interview with the DailyMail, Dr Cabrol said: “See how much progress we have made in the past 100 years. If there is a civilization out there that is only 1,000 years older than we are, who knows what type of technology, or what type of process, they’ve put into communicating with others. We’re just scratching the surface here. We’re looking at the universe from our own standpoint. We tend to ask questions in the way we do. But what kind of thought process an alien civilization may have, we really don’t know.”
