The recent statement of the U.S. government that it has no evidence of extraterrestrial life, does not mean that the aliens are not with us. Just mankind is not yet able to see aliens, writes The Daily Mail.
The aliens can hide even in the solar system, scientists believe the University of Pennsylvania. "The vastness of space, combined with our limited capacity means that any unmanned exploratory probe of extraterrestrial origin, is likely to remain unnoticed" — noted Jacob Haqq-Misra and Ravi Kumar Kopparapu.
According to scientists, humanity is still too poorly known solar system, to find in it the aliens. Moreover, the modern terrestrial probes are too primitive to see the traces of extraterrestrial intelligence. The latest technology is not able to discern objects of less than 10 meters, the researchers noted.
However, probes of this size are quite capable of flying in the interstellar space and reach our planet. An example is the American research vehicles Pioneer and Voyager, which in the 1970's. have been on a journey beyond the solar system.
Moreover, the visitors can easily hide even on Earth. "The surface of the Earth is one of the few places in the solar system, which are almost fully understood" — the researchers reported. However, the bottom of the oceans, lush jungles and deep caves can still be a great hiding place for the aliens. In any case, there are still continue to find new species.
Recall the other day, the U.S. government has officially stated that evidence of extraterrestrial life does not exist, as the evidence of human contact with extraterrestrials. But do not rule out their existence somewhere in the universe. This response was followed by postings on the White House Web site.
However, the Obama administration did mention that the search of extraterrestrial civilizations is underway. For this purpose, a special international project of Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence SETI (Search for Extraterrestial Intelligence). In February this year the project has opened access to its database and search algorithm signals from space for everyone. The researchers hope that their work will be connected to Internet users, who together will be able to solve many scientific problems.
