Who does Ridley Scott know at NASA?

Alien Covenant is right around the corner for release and Ridley Scott recently made statements in the press about alien life:


“I believe in superior beings,” the filmmaker said Thursday, while promoting the sixth installment in the sci-fi horror franchise, “Alien: Covenant.”

“I think it is certainly likely,” he told Agence France-Presse. “An expert I was talking to at NASA said to me, ‘Have you ever looked in the sky at night? You mean to tell me we are it?’ That’s ridiculous.

The experts have now put a number on it having assessed what is out there,” Scott added. “They say that there are between 100 and 200 entities that could be having a similar evolution to us right now. So when you see a big thing in the sky, run for it.”


Source

Anybody have a source for the bold?

Does this mean there are 100-200 earth sized exoplanets in the goldilocks zone the same age as Earth with an identical star? Anyone have a direct source from NASA where Ridley Scott received this information?

Do you think NASA and SETI have discovered alien life and are not telling the public except for giving hints to high profile individuals?

Apparently he knows James Green from working together on the film the Martian, source

Dr. Jim Green, Planetary Science Division Director, NASA bio

More about Dr. Jim Green



If anyone already knows about alien life in our solar system it's Dr. Jim Green...I wonder what Dr. Jim Green knows from his contacts in the Exoplanet Exploration Program. Link Do you think they already know and we will know soon enough? Will contact come first? Or will the evil elite continue to keep it secret?

Interesting thought..I had to give you a SnF for reminding me of Bill Paxton and one of his most famous cinematic quotes in your name.

If you see it reported it doesn't mean he said it exactly like that.
If he said it exactly like that it doesn't mean someone else said it before him.
If someone else said it before him it doesn't mean it's true.

And no, I don't think NASA or anyone else has discovered alien life.

It was said by Neil deGrasse Tyson, I found it here.


In your book Welcome to the Universe you explore the idea that other civilisations likely occupy our galaxy. Is there a theory behind this?

We go over a famous representation of that question called the Drake Equation: it's a way to organise our knowledge and ignorance about the search for life in the Universe. In the book we use it to estimate that there are between 100 and 200 civilisations with technology that we can communicate with today in the Milky Way galaxy. That's a nice number: not really low, not ambitiously high, but it's enough to say, let's keep that in mind, so that the first time we launch a rocket into space, maybe there's an inventory of planets that have a chance of having civilisation on them.

His correct title is Sir Ridley Scott.

ignoring that, ridley statament that te aliens are probally evil is extremely wrong
a sentient race capable of interestellar travel is smart enough to know that killing stuff is a bad idea

Yes, but what findings? Alien life?

Ridley and his team probably do their own research before making a film.

How do you know it is "extremely wrong"?
You have no idea.
You cannot possibly know.

Well, we hope so anyway.
In our evolution it seems that the strong and warlike tribes advance. Why might other alien species have evolved differently?
I am not saying they haven't, just that it is just as likely that they may have followed the same trend that we have.

What really gets me here is this, Scott talks to a scientist who says, " Have you ever looked in the sky at night? You mean to tell me we are it?’ "That’s ridiculous". Does that scientist have a clue as to how many people, not necessarily scientific, have said the same first paragraph to scientists, teachers, lecturers, blah blah blah... probably for as long as there was some knowledge of the solar system and it's workings, and the actual answer they got being, "That’s ridiculous".

I asked that question, rather more of a statement really, as a youngster, and I was always told, "That's ridiculous" It never phazed me though, while I could never understand as a kid that atitude, but it was the atitude of the day. It's as if the magnitude of it all was too much for them, and they didn't want me to worry my little head....which it didn't.
So now, we have scientists saying, "That's ridiculous" if you don't think that there is other life out there, and even the pope is hip with it, yet this research has been going on for a long time now, and that includes the Pope's ensemble.
Does anyone ever get the feeling that these guys are something of a closed shop? Hilarious!

Not necessarily. Good, evil, right and wrong is purely subjective. Intelligent alien life could be very indifferent to us.

I agree mate.
All these "scientists" now want to jump on the bandwagon.
Here is another article. nypost.com...

Hahahaha

If aliens come into contact with us, and they see us on the same level that we see rats, God help us.
Think of all the experiments we have performed on rats.

That's a heap of thinking from you about what you can only guess about from what insiders supposedly said.

The star and or system do not have to be identical to ours to produce a goldilocks zone.
The ratio of distance vs. Radiance level of the star is what's important.
Ie: one system could have a weaker star than ours and the Earth like planet could be closer to produce liquid H2O,
Conversely, a stronger star with an earth like planet further away from the star than we are from our sun could allow for liquid H2O.

Are you just compiling a list of what things dont mean other things?

Why so doubtful that aliens have been discovered or encountered by anyone ever?

Ridley Scott, a top-notch movie guy, made the movies Alien and Prometheus--two aliens are violent movies. In Prometheus he has the alien tearing the head off a robot! His aliens are in-fact not much better than his Hannibal Lector character.


Of course I understand he has to make violent movies in Hollywood to make a living.
