We all have gazed up into the night sky and wondered, “Is there something out there?”. Other beings from a distant solar system, far more advanced than we are. Have they been here before? Are they here now? These questions and more have been asked countless times.
Extra terrestrials, or simply known as aliens, have been part of American pop culture for a very long time. From classic B movies of the 50’s and 60’s such as “Plan 9 From Outer Space” and “The Day the Earth Stood Still” to the huge blockbuster of recent memory such as the Transformer series and Star Wars.
My attraction to aliens began with the “X-Files” miniseries that began to air this year. With the plot heavily relying on a huge alien conspiracy between the government, I became intrigued. Thinking if any life may be possible outside of Earth. I have watched the pseudo-documentary series of “Ancient Aliens”, but the evidence put forward by the show is very speculative and dubious. I know that the best chance of life outside of Earth is on Jupiter’s moon, Europa, probably in the form of microbes.
And if anyone is wondering, the picture is actually one that I took myself.
