Stephen Hawking afraid that some aliens might be intelligent and dangerous, causing a threat to humans. In his view, most of the aliens looked like microbes and simple animals - that is, forms of life as they were on the Earth during most of its existence. "If ever the aliens visit us, I think it would look like that when Christopher Columbus first landed in the coast of America, which is not exactly ended well for the Indians."
The first search for extraterrestrial intelligence began in 1960 when the astronomer Frank Drake in West Virginia put radio telescopes. Today, half a century later, Dr. Frank Drake tirelessly still listens to radio signals in order to identify the one that sent him ET.
