"I think it's not the smart decision — to inform the aliens where we are, because any kind of contact with them might be fatal for us," said Brian Schmidt, 28 the General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union, which recently took place in Beijing.
Australian Brian Schmidt is one of the winners of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2011, a team of American cosmologist Saul Perlmutter and Adam Riesz. As we reported, the reward they get for the paradoxical discovery: the universe is expanding with acceleration. The first part of the premium received Perlmutter, the second part was divided between Schmidt and his colleagues Riess.
Until recently, mankind has believed. that everything in the universe is slowing, according to the law of conservation of energy, but cosmologists were able to prove the accelerated expansion of the universe and assumed the existence of dark energy is conducive to such expansion.
Brian Schmidt is confident that with the availability of ever-increasing distances between space objects, to reach another star system becomes practically impossible, even in the long term. Cosmologist expects that this will significantly reduce the probability of detection of extraterrestrial intelligence.
"The future of the universe covered with darkness. Everything in the universe is accelerating. When it comes to finding aliens, it can be very difficult and dangerous task. This can never happen. Such a substance as we are, in the universe is a rarity, "said Schmidt.
Back in 2010, Stephen Hawking warned humanity of a serious danger to attempt to make contact with extraterrestrial civilizations. These contacts can be fatal to humanity, said Hawking.
Brian Schmidt, speaking at the Assembly in Beijing, said that he fully agreed with the world's most famous physicist Stephen Hawking. "People have good reason for concern," warned the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Brian Schmidt.
