Those Pesky Space Aliens

Those Pesky Space Aliens

Space aliens could be a right pain, says Professor Stephen Hawking, so if you run across some leave them be. The famed astrophysicist made his remarks in a recent television program (he’s British and thinks it’s a “programme”).

Dr. Hawking belives that space aliens are probably out there. If they come here, he reasons, they will be Columbus and we’ll be Carib and Arawak indians. Seen many Caribs or Arawaks lately? Right. That’s his point.
