About

The world Alien refers to extraterrestrial life throughout the universe. It has been theorized by many that we are not alone in the universe. Today, aliens feature in many forms of pop culture. Rumors of secret landings (Ailleris, Philippe (January–February 2011). “The lure of local SETI: Fifty years of field experiments”. Acta Astronautica 68 (1–2): 2–15.) and abductions (Clancy, Susan A. (2005). Abducted: how people come to believe they were kidnapped by aliens. Harvard University Press. pp. 4–6.) have persisted over the years.

Origin

Belief in extraterrestrial life has persisted since the ancient era. The Lokas of Hinduism and Nine Worlds of Norse Mythology are some of the oldest beliefs in aliens. After the invention of the telescope, belief in aliens moved to scientific mainstream. Modern technology has led to more sophisticated searches for alien life such as Voyager[1] and SETI[2].

Pop Culture

Popular renditions of aliens include the HG Wells book War of the Worlds, the film Aliens, and the video game series Halo
