[NASA] NASA's Voyager Hits New Region at Solar System Edge - Page 3

post #21 of 32
I am more apt to believe that we humans have lost technology than that alien beings came and taught humans how to do something. Aliens visiting...sure, why not. I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the entire earth is a reality TV show for the cosmos, but even though it should be impossible to rationalize an alien being behavior in human terms; I just don't see why they would come by to teach early humans a few tricks and leave.

Actually what I see being the hidden truth is aliens coming to visit early humans and then the humans ganged up on them and killed them with clubs...upon searching them they found a few very advanced tools that they could figure out how to work and they used them to build a few ancient wonders, but they only worked for a while and it isn't like they had the technology to reproduce them. Since it was a group of explorers or crazy alien scientists no one from their own civilization even missed them. Or maybe it was peaceful and they just left behind something by accident. I guess I just don't see why they would have came by for tea a few thousand years ago, but never came back...openly at least; since some folks believe there is a UFO only parking spot behind the White House you know. Unless the human destructive nature really is so bad that they figured they should leave us alone.

It's hard to believe that anything that we made in the 70s is still going.

How do you know our "modern" technology is more advanced? Food for thought.

Is there something about smartphone tech that is so revolutionary we couldn't have discovered it ourselves?

This isn't directed at you specifically, but there are some wild theories in this thread about aliens. Don't get me wrong I fully believe in life outside of Earth, but I've seen nothing definitive to believe aliens have ever visited our planet. To me the stories of aliens I've heard are about as credible as stories of Big Foot, the Lochness Monster, and the Chupacabra.

Does anyone know how far they'll go before they're pulled back towards the sun?

The idea is that they won't ever come back. They are traveling fast enough to break free of the Sun's gravity. Though there isn't really any way to tell what will happen once they reach the end of the heliosphere

Roswell??? Some beings can fly through interstellar space but can't land on a solid surface?? Don't tell me you actually believe that junk.

Before i posted my post i checked some stuff. Most places seem to think that the escape velocity of the solar system is about 40km/s and the probes are going at best 17km/s (worst 15km/s). I could be getting the escape velocity of the sun and the solar system confused though.
