There are a number of questions we ask ourselves every time, while gazing at the sky. Do aliens exist? This is a common question unanswered question that most of us ask ourselves and is unanswered. Can there be life across billions of light years in the sky?
None of us know that and it is a debate that has been there for centuries. There is no certainty about it also if there is something like the alien in the sky then that would totally change the understanding of the universe. Extraterrestrial life is real or not is something we cannot answer until they get in touch with us.
What do the scientists say?
Scientist have worked on a lot of theories and have worked out the look of the aliens, though we haven’t seen the aliens for real except for in fictional movies so we cannot really comment. According to the scientists and their recent research, aliens are imagined to be powerful monsters that either look like humanoids or insect like machine. One thing that the scientists are clear about is that they do look familiar to humans. According to a lot of recent studies, the researchers feel that they cannot comment on the exact look of the alien; or on whether they have grey eyes or grey skin but they can just say and conclude by what they have researched is that they have quite a lot of similarities to use and are to a large extent like us.
The fictional cinema
Whether they exist or not? Whether you believe in them or not? It cannot be denied that aliens form an important and an integral part of our cinemas. Whether they are the sci-fi movies or the fantasy horror movies; these extraterrestrial creatures are shown and depicted in them to be quite friendly, some have also shown to be scary. The sci-fi directors take the subject of aliens and UFO quiet seriously and bang on it because it is something that the audience is unaware of, which is best for fictional cinema. So whether you love them or hate them, or love to hate them, these creatures are an important fictional part of our cinema and have always been.
