Curiosity Videos -- Alien Invasion: Are We Ready?
We've read the books, we've seen the movies. War of the Worlds, V, Independence Day. But they're all fiction, right? Well, probably not. New science is suggesting that aliens may be very real, and that they may not be as cuddly as E.T. Host Michelle Rodriguez (Avatar, Battle:LA) brings together top scientists, military strategists and writers to dramatize what would happen if and when aliens attacked.
What if an extra-terrestrial force attacked Earth? What might that look like and how will the people of Earth respond? Consulting a cast of world-renowned scientists, survival experts and defense experts, this two-hour special, Alien Invasion explores this frightening scenario. Experts reveal what could motivate alien invaders to attack Earth, and speculate on how the attack might play out -- the strategy alien invaders might use and the most effective ways for humans to respond. Well turn to science and history to figure out what works. Well show how humanity can survive this ultimate test. Read more: channel.nationalgeographic.com...
FALLING SKIES opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. In the six months since the initial invasion, the few survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin the difficult task of fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers work to protect the people in their care while also engaging in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force.
I have enjoyed this bit of history for a while so I thought I'd share. This was first published in the February/March 1992 issue of Air & Space magazine. It is a bit of levity in all the seriousness of testing nukes. It was during Pascal-B testing 27 August 1957. "Every kid who has put a firecracker under a tin can understands the principle of using high explosives to loft an object into space. What was novel to scientists at Los Alamos [the atomic laboratory in New Mexico] was the idea of using an atomic bomb as propellant. That strategy was the serendipitous result of an experiment that had gone somewhat awry. "Project Thunderwell was the inspiration of astrophysicist Bob Brownlee, who in the summer of 1957 was faced with the problem of containing underground an explosion, expected to be equivalent to a few hundred tons of dynamite. Brownlee put the bomb at the bottom of a 500-foot vertical tunnel in the Nevada desert, sealing the opening with a four-inch thick steel plate weighing several hundred pounds. He knew the lid would be blown off; he didn't know exactly how fast. High-speed cameras caught the giant manhole cover as it began its unscheduled flight into history. Based upon his calculations and the evidence from the cameras, Brownlee estimated that the steel plate was traveling at a velocity six times that needed to escape Earth's gravity when it soared into the flawless blue Nevada sky. 'We never found it. It was gone,' Brownlee says, a touch of awe in his voice almost 35 years later. "The following October the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, billed as the first man-made object in Earth orbit. Brownlee has never publicly challenged the Soviet's claim. But he has his doubts."http://nuclearweaponarchive.org/Usa/Tests/Plumbob.html And Dr. Robert Brownlee's personal account: nuclearweaponarchive.org...

Why risk going down their and losing a few friends for some primitives? I mean anyone can get lucky and if just so happens the universal consciousness favors these primitives I'm not gonna risk losing. So I might aswell sit back behind the curtain and either play puppet master or Dr. Doom!

I was watching this tonight and thinking "I bet someone on ATS is going to mention how there has been an increase on alien preparation shows".
You addressed what I thought too. Maybe someone is looking at the responses that people discuss after watching such shows to see what the stage of awareness is about people's real concerns if they have any.

Lets say for example that everything has been takin out from under the rug and we realise or are told that Roswell was real. Aurora Tx was real. Aliens have been here always have been here and never were gone. Like a parent waiting to see if the child graduates school. Certain factions of aliens have been interested to see if we are going to join the Cosmic society or commit suicide trying to do so.
Well we can see that certain alien factions have been warring over us for some time. Thats why we got the ideas in our heads about bad aliens and good aliens. Ofcourse they both exist. Look at our society. Their are gonna be aliens that wanna see us wipe eachother out aswell as ones who want us to succeed.
I'm sure rascism or speciescism if thats even a word exists in the cosmos. Some species prolly view themselves above others. The whole root for the home team complex. Or they simply want to rule knowing they are advanced greed and all the other instincts kick in. Just because they advacnced don't mean they won't succumb to instincts or 7 deadly sins as the bible calls them.
Look at us today we are gods compared to us a few thousand years ago hell even a few hundred years ago. But even today we still succumb to those bad habits. So why wouldn't they!
Point here is a few aliens (roswell) sacrifices their lives for the growth of out species. So far it's been in vain! Why? Because if we knew without any doubt aliens were real. We wouldn't be controllable anymore! There would be no more arguing about presedential campaigns or none of that crap. We would prolly turn into a more humble species.
And the unification of our species is not allowed. Why? Because the bad aliens want us as slaves or want us to die. The good aliens are keeping them in check. By allowing us to make up our own minds. How we have humans arguing aliens don't exist and others saying they do. You got aliens saying wipe there arses out there a train wreck waiting to happen. You got other aliens saying no give them a chance they have a right to live.
Much like humans arguing over animal rights! Except in this reality involving aliens we are the animals being argued over! No?

Yet another thread, of the millions on here and the internet, from someone who sees something alien on tv, says that there is a huge uptake in alien related stuff on tv (not really, but recently there has been a slight increase because it gets good ratings, not because of some stupid, secret cabal trying to desensitize the population, lol).
People getting entertainment and capitalism confused with some alien conspiracy are demonstrating the exact ignorance that keeps us from fixing this subject and making it a viable thing for the pros to study.
I can remember in the 70's people saying the same damn thing with every sci-fi film or tv show that came on. Jeez, I guess your secret cabal of string pullers are REALLY TAKING THEIR TIME.....especially if you think back to classic sci-fi novels even pre big budget movies or TELEVISION at all.
Come on guys, do we really have to go through this OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER.....if I had a nickel for every time some demonstrated their ignorance like this every time I have heard it since I got into this subject in the 1970's. You think you guys get a little miffed when people post the same stupid youtube video here every other day, or another ignorant star child thread every 14 minutes (that make ridiculous, unfounded claims too by the way)......imagine seeing and hearing that type of repeated ignorance since the early 70's!
I sincerely hoped that we would be smarter than this by now, imagine my surprise that the great thing in information and communication every invented (the internet) has made us all more ignorant and lazy.

But ,my question is,why the sudden explosion of this coverage?
It's just like in the 1950's with the explosion of all those B sci-fi movies.
They must be feeding on and aware of our civilizations awakening,our awareness that something is about to happen.
I am wrong?
