Humans Could Invade Four Hostile Alien Civilizations In Our Galaxy
As humans prepare to transmit their address to the heart of the Milky Way galaxy, a new study claims that there may be at least four alien civilizations with hostile intentions in our world. However, the researcher concluded that the likelihood of these civilizations invading Earth is very low.
The study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, was conducted by Alberto Caballero, who holds a Ph.D. student in conflict resolution at the University of Vigo in Spain. He was also the author of a separate study that attempted to analyze where the famous WOW! Signal came from, which was published in the University of Cambridge’s International Journal of Astrobiology.
Caballero, in his latest article, attempts to provide an estimate of the prevalence of hostile extraterrestrial civilizations that we as a human civilization would attack or invade once we become a type 1 civilization capable of interstellar travel in close proximity. He also argues that there might be less than one malevolent alien civilization in the Milky Way that also masters interstellar travel.
“I made the paper based purely on life as we know it. We don’t know the minds of extraterrestrials. An alien civilization may have a brain with different chemical compositions and they might not have our empathy or they might have more psychopathological behaviors,” the researcher told Vice.

Astronomers question the usefulness of the first interstellar radio message broadcast into deep space in 1974 by the Arecibo telescope claiming that only GJ 273 b, located 19 light years away, remains considered potentially habitable. With an estimated terrestrial similarity of 85%. The message will arrive on the exoplanet in 2029, and any response to Earth would be
received from 2041.
“The problem is that the message only contained music and a science tutorial to decode it. That is, it was a symbolic interstellar message, and therefore unlikely to be received and deciphered by a civilization provided it exists,” reads his post.

To reach his conclusion that four hostile civilizations exist in the Milky Way, Caballero based his estimate on the global history of invasions over the past century, the military capabilities of the countries involved, and the global growth rate of food consumption. ‘energy. Although he maintains that his calculation could be flawed, he writes that the results could serve as a starting point for an international debate on sending the first serious interstellar radio messages to nearby potentially habitable planets.
Scientists plan to broadcast the second radio message into interstellar space which would contain simple principles of communication, basic mathematical concepts, physical formulas, constituents of DNA as well as information about humans, Earth and a return address if anyone wants to return back.
The team says the message will contain digitized representations of the solar system, the Earth’s surface and the human form, as well as an invitation to respond to any receiving intelligence.
