With space being so vast and the nearest star being too far to travel to with present technologies. It would seem logical that since humans can't
travel to the stars, then aliens from the stars shouldn't be able to visit Earth. This doesn't appear so with the tens of thousands of sightings
that are reported from around the world each year.
If aliens are from another world, they must have some extraordinary means of travel -- nothing like what is available anywhere on Earth. It is hard
to underestimate the difficulty of going from star to star.
A law of science, determined by Albert Einstein, says nothing can travel faster than the speed of light -- 186,000 miles per second. The fastest
object made by man, the Voyager spacecraft is travelling along at 11 miles per second. At that rate, the scientific probe Voyager, launched in 1977,
would take 73,000 years to reach the nearest star.
"Scientifically, we have a rule: you want to be alive at the end of your experiment, not dead," said Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Rose
Center's Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

In the past, aliens and UFO's have never been taken seriously by the mainstream news. It's just recently that the news has given any serious
consideration to the subject. People that are sceptics may have to change their positions when credible news sources start taking another look at what
so many have considered a subject of great controversial debate. All I have to say is, it's about time.
