There’s just something about the countless unresolved UFO sightings that convinces us that aliens do exist. However, that statement has yet to be proven true. Even with the advancement of technology and the ability of humans to explore space, no concrete proof has popped up that would confirm the whereabouts of aliens.
Now, as we are about to wrap up the first quarter of 2021, we can access numerous studies and discoveries that indicate we might not be alone in this universe. So, in this article, we will walk you through 10 amazing and recent findings that could, in one way or another, serve as extraterrestrial evidence.
1: Life could be sustained near a black hole
It’s important to note that black holes do not only exist to suck in every object that comes in their way. In fact, it’s totally possible for a planet to orbit the black hole as the latter heats up the former. A report from March 2020 unveiled the same.
2: Countless spots near earth for aliens to detect our presence
Humans often overrate themselves as the smartest beings in the entire universe. However, it’s totally possible that we are behind the aliens in the intellect department. According to researchers, there are 1,004 stars close to Earth that are positioned perfectly to detect life on our planet.
3: Earth has quite a few competitors
Researchers claim that beyond our sun, there are about 53 exoplanets that resemble Earth in terms of size. The further assessment indicates that about 25% of these planets have a surface temperature, distance from their star, mass, density, orbit, and other conditions right enough to be deemed ocean worlds i.e. planets with sufficient water on them.
4: Aliens may be dependent on hydrogen for survival
Unlike humans, many other organisms can survive without oxygen and would rather receive a steady supply of hydrogen. Moreover, oxygen makes up only 0.1% of the regular mass of the universe as opposed to the 92% contribution of Hydrogen. So, while looking for aliens, one might have better luck looking up places that are vastly different from Earth.
5: Venus – A potential home for space bugs
In September 2020, news spread that served as potential proof of life existing in the upper clouds of Venus. This news indicated the presence of phosphine i.e. a rare yet fatal gas that is mostly linked with living organisms. While this doesn’t confirm that space bugs reside on Venus, it’s something to look further into.
6: Navy makes interesting UFO footage public
Back in April, the US Navy released footage filmed by pilots that featured strange wingless aircraft flying at an incredibly high speed. Despite that, some people still have a hard time believing that life exists beyond Earth.
7: The Oumuamua debate
Around two years ago, scientists observed a cigar-shaped machine traveling through the solar system. They said the machine was named Oumuamua. To this day, scientists argue whether the said object was an alien artifact or not, considering that it might be possible that hydrogen ice caused the object to melt off and be molded into a rocket-Esque shape. However, it’s been claimed that hydrogen ice can get heated very easily, even in the chilling zone known as the interstellar space, debunking the theory that hydrogen ice had any role to play in the aforementioned situation.
8: Aliens are long dead
As per a recent study, the highest likelihood of life surfacing in the Milky Way probably occurred over 5.5 billion years ago. This can very well mean that aliens died a long time ago.
9: Aliens are trying to get our attention from Proxima Centauri
A few months ago, researchers revealed that they had obtained a strange beam of energy that came from Proxima Centauri, the closest star to ours. However, further research is required before any concrete details could be acquired.
10: We must learn to keep an open mind
While searching for extraterrestrial evidence, one must be able to detect life that is vastly different from what we encounter on our planet. In short, we must learn to expect the unexpected.
