Seth Shostak is best known for his work as
Senior Astronomer at the SETI Institute,
but he also works in the movie biz,
offering scientific advice to Hollywood filmmakers.
While writing my book, Silver Screen Saucers,
I interviewed Seth about his activities in Tinseltown
and about the role movies play in shaping our perceptions of ETs.…
SETI Scientist Warns World To Prepare For Alien Visitation
SETI Scientist Warns World To Prepare For Alien Visitation But Admits Action Plan Could Be Like Neanderthals Preparing In Case The U.S. Air Force Shows Up
By: JohnThomas Didymus
Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute, an organization leading ongoing efforts to detect possible radio signals from intelligent extraterrestrial civilizations, has warned that there are no government-level action plans in place in case aliens show up.
During an interview with Live Science, Shostak addressed a key issue of interest to scientific researchers in the SETI field: How humans might communicate with intelligent extraterrestrial species at first contact and what would likely happen if humans make radio contact with aliens or if Earth is visited by spaceships from technologically superior extraterrestrial civilizations.
Do we have a plan?
“There are some protocols, but I think that’s an unfortunate name, and it makes them sound more important than they are,” Shostak told Live Science.
The SETI scientist was referring to the so-called “post-detection protocols” designed to guide researchers in the SETI field who watch for possible intelligent transmissions of extraterrestrial origin.

The following article is a compilation of reports, scientific discoveries and evidence supporting the notion that humanity is being prepared for ET disclosure.
A decade ago, the mere mention of life existing outside of Earth was enough to be excommunicated from scientific circles. But with the discovery of exoplanets, water found on planets and moons in the solar system and space fairing microbial life, these once close-minded institutions of science are beginning to change their tune.
But full disclosure would mean much more than just a statement from some official. Whistleblower testimony from numerous individuals suggests that there is a transnational secret space program that has operated since at least the early 20th century. According to some accounts, the military industrial complex has already created a Star Trek age society in space, colonizing the solar system and beyond.
Some of these accounts by secret space program whistleblowers paints a picture strongly resembling what is revealed in popular science fiction works, such as Star Trek and Stargate.
An honest appraisal of the available data leads to one strong possibility, that humanity no only has evidence of extraterrestrial life but is actively working with it for various undisclosed purposes. When a disclosure event does occur, even the most well educated researchers will probably be taken aback by how extensively humanity has already moved into the stars.
“The number of habitable worlds in our galaxy is certainly in the tens of billions, minimum, and we haven’t even talked about the moons. And the number of galaxies we can see, other than our own, is about 100 billion.” – Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer at California’s SETI Institute*
“We’re looking at all scenarios about finding life. If you find microbes, that’s one thing. If you find intelligence, it’s another. And if they communicate, it’s something else, and depending on what they say, it’s something else!“The idea is not to wait until we make a discovery, but to try and prepare the public for what the implications might be when such a discovery is made. I think the reason that NASA is backing this is because of all the recent activity in the discovery of exoplanets and the advances in astrobiology in general.“People just consider it much more likely now that we’re going to find something — probably microbes first and maybe intelligence later. The driving force behind this is from a scientific point of view that it seems much more likely now that we are going to find life at some point in the future.” – Astronomer, symposium organizer and former chief NASA historian, Steven J. D***
“I Believe [alien life exists], but I have no evidence. I would be really excited and it would make my understanding of my religion deeper and richer in ways that I can’t even predict yet, which is why it would be so exciting.”
“Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered. We are not alone in the universe, they have been coming here for a long time.” – Apollo 14 Astronaut, Air Force Captain and Founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Dr. Edgar Mitchell
“Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about the direction we were heading and offered to help. Instead, some of us interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after. Trillions of dollars have been spent on black projects which both congress and the commander in chief have deliberately been kept in the dark.”*”In one of the cases during the cold war, 1961, there were about 50 UFOs in formation flying South from Russia across Europe. The supreme allied commander was very concerned and was about ready to press the panic button when they turned around and went back over the North Pole. They decided to do an investigation and they investigated for three years and they decided that with absolute certainty that four different species, at least, have been visiting this planet for thousands of years. There’s been a lot more activity in the past two decades, especially since we invented the atomic bomb.” Paul Hellyer*
“There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been monitoring us for a very long time. That their appearance is bizarre from any type of traditional materialistic western point of view. That these visitors use the technologies of consciousness, they use toroids, they use co-rotating magnetic disks for their propulsion systems, that seems to be a common denominator of the UFO phenomenon” – Dr. Brian O’leary, Former NASA Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor*“In my opinion I think they were worried that it would panic the public so they started telling lies about it. And then I think they had to tell another lie to cover their first lie, now they don’t know how to get out of it. Now it’s going to be so embarrassing to admit that all these administrations have told so many untruths, it would be embarrassing getting out of it. There are a number of extraterrestrial vehicles out there cruising around.”– Gordon Cooper, Former NASA Astronaut, Aeronautical Engineer and test pilot. One of the seven original Astronauts in Project Mercury, the first manned space program of the United States*
“Behind the scenes, high ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense” Former head of CIA, Roscoe Hillenkoetter, 1960*“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, by other civilizations. Who they are, where they are from, and what they want should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not be the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers”– Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee*“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, by other civilizations.

“There is another way whether it’s wormholes or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re here shows us that they found a way.” – Jack Kasher, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of Physics, University of Nebraska*“This thing has gotten so highly-classified…it is just impossible to get anything on it. I have no idea who controls the flow of need-to-know because, frankly, I was told in such an emphatic way that it was none of my business that I’ve never tried to make it to be my business since. I have been interested in this subject for a long time and I do know that whatever the Air Force has on the subject is going to remain highly classified” – Senator Barry Goldwater , Chairman of the Senate intelligence committee
“As the F-4 approached a range of 25 nautical miles it lost all instrumentation and communications. When the F-4 turned away from the object and apparently was no longer a threat to it, the aircraft regained all instrumentation and communications. Another brightly lighted object came out of the original object. The second object headed straight toward the F4. ”*
