But, what if they are an aggressive race. New to interstellar travel, only slightly ahead of us in technology. A race looking for resources in other
planetary bodies....like Earth.
Then, it could be possible that there could be an ongoing space war, that our government is not telling us about.
I have thoughts like this traipse through my head sometimes.....
It's paranoia ... because your not thinking this through.
What is it on earth, that they would be interrested in?
Water? It would be easier, to pick up a comet in space.
Iron? It would be easier, to pick up an asterroid in space.
Of course, there are those of us that are convinced the earths core is not made of iron ... because basicaly, only dead planets have iron core (like
the asterroid field). While other stellar objects with magnetic fields (like the sun) have a plasma core. Such a core, would most likely be the
source for oxygen and hydrogen on earth.
If this *is* the case, then when the core "depletes" it will simply turn itself into a "solid" form because of it's density, and it would also mean
that the oxygen on earth ... which comes through volcanic eruptions, would deplete itself ...
At this time, they wouldn't be here to get "resources". They'd be coming here, because their world was inhabitable and they were making this their
new home. But it would never be a massive movment, only a few selected people ... and if that was the case, they'd be smart enough to make sure that
when the time comes, their ancestors would be able to escape this planeet too. So, the "knowledge" around here would be on a much higher level that
it is ...
