Aliens are said to be spying on us:
Physicist suggests orbiting objects are stakeouts for Martian probes to observe life on Earth and feeds into a 1960 theory that ‘superior galactic communities’ are watching …
An American physicist has proposed that alien ‘lurkers’ may have been observing us for millions of years.
James Benford released a paper suggesting these ancient Martians have setup ‘probes’ on a class of rocky near-Earth objects (NEO).
Theses co-orbital objects follow Earth’s similar loop around the sun and do it very closely to our planet – ‘providing an ideal way to watch our world from a secure natural object’.Stacy Liberatore, “Are alien ‘lurkers’ SPYING on us?” at Daily Mail
The story also surfaced at ScienceAlert based on a paper in the Astronomical Journal. (paywall)
Gotta be true. Is this to certain secularist communities in science what an imminent Rapture is to certain evangelical Christian ones?
