Astronomers Seth Baum, Jacob Haqq-Misra and Shawn Domagal-Goldman, who’ve been searching for extraterrestial life most of their profession life, have just published a study warning that may have been a mistake. They argue that aliens may behave like we have when discovering a new species:
Just as we did to those beings, the extraterrestrials might proceed to kill, infect, dissect, conquer, displace or enslave us, stuff us as specimens for their museums or pickle our skulls and use us for medical research.
This study, which appeared in the journal Acta Astronautica, goes on to warn:
A core concern is that ETI will learn of our presence and quickly travel to Earth to eat or enslave us.
Eat or enslave us?!? We think these guys have been watching to many episodes of “The Twilight Zone”.
Thanks to strong ratings (an average of 6.74 million per episode) TNT’s new Spielberg-produced, alien invasion series is getting a second season. Great news for genre fans who’ve recently seen many new genre series get the axe before their time. Clearly, the series mixing of heart-stopping action and deep human drama has been a winner with fans. Frankly, we’re excited to get another series of this fun new show.
And aren’t you proud of us for not using any “Falling” puns in this story? It was hard. But we did it.
Spielberg’s upcoming alien invasion drama “Falling Skies” now has a Twitter account! It will keep you up-to-date on all the latest news on the show. Wanna follow them? Just click here. And, in case you didn’t know, they also have a Facebook page. You can find that here. “Falling Skies” premieres at 9:00 p.m. on June 19, 2011 on TNT.
Two fun clips from the new sci-fi actioner!
Go full screen on this, crank your audio, and be prepared for a shock or two. This clip, more than anything we’ve seen so far, sells this film’s unique cheesy appeal. Before seeing this we were on this fence on this movie. Now we’re definitely catching this one on the big screen.
Not as instantly gripping as the first clip, this scene has its own magic, giving a sense of massiveness of this film. And also compelling look at sprawling mass of Los Angeles.
This one looks like it could go either way. Either a complete triumph. Or a mediocre failure.
