Former British Defense Ministry UFO project leader Nick Pope has boldly predicted that aliens will reveal themselves to humans no later than 2024, and might even land on the White House lawn, just like in the movies. Or, they may just send an email.

What makes him so sure?

According to an article published by the Jagran Post on Thursday, Dec. 27, that's when the largest telescope in history will go online, improving current imaging and spectrum detection quality by a factor of 50, and at 10,000 times the speed of modern field-array radio telescopes

why should they wait? 2024 might be too late. we need help now. we are destroying our planet with corporate greed. The war machine churns on, the prison industry is growing rapidly. The planet is bursting at the seams, the religion wackos are extremely dangerous. I think the world is in desperate need of a wake up call.

2. Aliens do tend to procrastinate.

Never there when you need them!

5. "why should they wait"

 

Why should they "help"? What would that "help" entail? Why would they value human life--a scourge to all other life on earth--above the millions of species we threaten? What if they viewed natural planetary evolution as vital for diversity, and are simply waiting for the earth to further evolve from a human induced bottleneck, which will inevitably lead to further evolution?

The entire notion of aliens helping humans is a bit self-involved and as irrational as thinking some other intelligent life in the universe with FTL travel cares enough to waste resources on "saving" us from ourselves.

9. +1000

You're absolutely correct. We are in process if killing our planet and have destroyed and keep destroying tens of thousands of species. Assuming aliens are somewhat inteligent, why would they help "us"? I fear the opposite.

7. What makes you so sure Aliens have our best interest

They could just easily take some of us back for experiments and for their zoos. Than eradicate the rest of us, and have the planet as a base for themselves. Or they could make us all slaves forcing us to make crappy tv for their entertainment and I-Phones.

8. Predicts aliens will reveal them selves in 2024

Considering the rate at which we're multiplying,burning through resources and fouling the air and water,I have to wonder,just WHO does he imagine will still be here,in '24,to welcome,or try to murder them?

10. I suspect aliens are going to be so strange that "revealing themselves" simply won't make sense

Something along the lines of:

-they don't understand "sound"
-they don't "see" as we understand it or it's in a wildly different spectrum
-they don't do linear causality because their brains are multi-threaded
-they're multi-conscious such as a hive mind
-they lack core concepts such as "I", "home", "before"
-they aren't "life" as we understand it

13. Smart choice.

20 years would be too late - no interest. Pick a date too soon in the future and you'll be discredited before you've built a proper market. 12 years sounds ideal.

14. Also, enough can change in 12 years that it'll be easy to

pick out one of the many big events that's bound to happen over the next decade and say "Well they were going to but because THIS happened, they decided not to. New date is in the 2030s."

17. But if UFOs are real and are of alien origin

they're probably way beyond the stage of using radio signals. The Square Kilometer Array will potentially detecting signals from less advanced civilizations. Why would the "UFO aliens" choose to reveal themselves because we find some other random civilization?

18. Locking, does not meet LBN SOP. thank you.

LBN SOP states " News stories must have been published within the last 12 hours."

GD might be a better choice and would be nice to have a change from gun stuff there.
