To those espousing the Hawkings/Kaku line of "don't contact them, they may be hostile!", the fact is that they may not be. Both are valid arguments
because, frankly, we don't know.
It's an unknown and will remain so until we try.
Either way, fear of the unknown has never been a legitimate reason to curb exploration and discovery. If it were then there would be no computers, no
cars, no electricity, no civilization.
We'd still be living in caves.
When did humanity lose it's sense of adventure?
Edit: fixing poor mobile text prediction.
