Aliens view of Earth ~ Dr. Jan Drozd

Jan Drozd considers how intelligent and advanced aliens who study exoplanets, in a similar way that we do, might piece together the history of the Earth’s formation, the evolution of life and its impact on the environment on this “pale blue dot” we call home.

Many of us will be familiar with the opening mission statement from the original Star Trek TV series:

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.

We are so used to looking outwards from our planet, that it is interesting to consider how curious and dispassionate aliens, from a more scientifically advanced civilisation than ours, with a similar mission statement to the above, might piece together the history of the Earth’s formation, the evolution of life and its impact on the environment on this “pale blue dot” we call home.

 

Is this the vindication of Piet van de Kamp ~ David Pulley
