The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, a brief history

Originally published at:


What if they’re too far away, or not even still around?

The NYT piece on these “tic tacs” has me picturing drones that go around, silently (or as silently as an alien drone can in the way a helicopter hovering over the Amazon is jarring)

If you read between the lines of this + blue book it becomes clear:

Something is visiting us. We have no idea what it is. Aliens are a viable theory, but maybe it’s our future selves or parallel universes .Who knows! But the government will never admit points 1 or 2 because “LOL we have no clue and haven’t for 40 years” is not a look they will ever willingly wear.

Got a shorter history:
