Aliens: predators

‘Stephen Hawking warns over making contact with aliens…he warned that aliens might simply raid Earth for resources, then move on. “If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans,” he said. Prof Hawking thinks that, rather than actively trying to communicate with extra-terrestrials, humans should do everything possible to avoid contact.’
