Prof Lord Rees told the Cheltenham Science Festival the first contact with aliens will be through robots.
Alien contact is likely to come from machines living on other worlds outside of the solar system, the astronomer royal Martin Rees has said.

Prof Lord Rees, 72, told the Cheltenham Science Festival ‘I’m not holding my breath’ for signs of extraterrestrial life, but said if a signal was picked up it would not be from organic life, like humans.

He said that most space exploration would be carried out by machines, which would not constrained by the physical difficulties of existing in space or on other planets.

“I think it is quite likely that within a few centuries the overriding intelligence will be machines because they will have an easier time spreading beyond the Earth because they are not organic and most exploration will be by machines and not humans,” he said.

“If you were to detect a SETI (Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) signal it would be far more likely that it would be from a machine and not an organic creature.

Utter nonsense. Why is this even news? By the time a civilization gets warp bubbles figured out, it also follows they would conquer the perils of radiation etc.
Countless stories abound of ET contact with no robots involved ffsi.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

But then we would ask the same questions. Who created the machines?

Dr. Kaku, quantum physicist, has a theory where, yes, contact may be with robots or even robotic quantum computers where we can upload one's consciousness, so the unit becomes a hybrid of human consciousness and robot/computer. I am not sure if the mechanisms can be built here on Earth then sent to other planets/galazies, or must humans venture to space to build these receivers.

Not certain if I'd want to ride this out in a robot body. Even if it was eternal, it brings into question, what would happen to the spirit after it left the physical body.
Would we be leaving behind the very essence that makes us...us? hmm.gif
