    Surely they’re all warching us, or will be when the light leaving us now reaches them in ten or a hundred or a thousand years.

    Of course to them WE look like bug-eyed monsters.

    Yeah, well I’m a one eyed, one horned, flying purple people eater…

    I’m much less worried about aliens with telescopes than I am about corporations and government agencies with cameras… which seem to be just about everywhere…

    Problem is once people realize that there are bazillions of planets, they tend to think this one is expendable. Since it would take millions of year to get to one of those planets, and there’s a very remote possibility that it would support life, and if it did once we had traveled millions of years to get there, that intelligent life would quite likely shoot us out of their sky, THERE IS NO BACK UP PLANET. So we need to keep this one clean enough that we don’t need to move out any time soon.

    Yes. Even the “terraform Mars” notion is absurd. At the rate we’re laying waste to this planet there will be nothing left before we have the technology to send thousands of people through millions of miles of space and build a life support system on a waterless planet.

    I just saw an article where they think they have discovered trace amounts of water on Mars. It may prove to be there and just well hidden, but like you I agree we shall probably not ever work towards colonizing Mars because the people who have the money to do the work won’t because they don’t see any immediate profit to be made.

    To Bug-eyed monsters, we wouldn’t be bug-eyed unless their bugs’ vision system was like that of humans. Further, we wouldn’t look like monsters to them if we looked like their favorite snack or pet or leather source.

    THAT will take just fractions of a second to be monitored. The bug-eyed monsters are safely distant and disinterested.

    ’Course that count assumes that the density of planets off of the orbital plane is anything like as dense as that on it, which seems unlikely.
