I would love to think that there is life out there but I do wonder why they would all be so bothered about watching us. I suppose we might have certain minerals they need.

One thing I do know for certain about any life out there is that if that was me and I saw the state this world is in I would be getting back where I had come from as fast as possible!

That is what scientists are thinking.

https://www.brunel.ac.uk/news-and-ev...3-new-research

Even today, bacteria are the most dominant living beings on Earth. Take bacteria out of the biosphere, and life will gradually collapse. Bacteria may therefore be far more suited for cosmic travel and communication than us. A recent study found that terrestrial bacteria can survive in space for at least three years, possibly more. Add to this the fact that bacteria can exist in a dormant state for millions of years, and its clear that microbes are very resilient.

Indeed, various versions of the panspermia hypothesis which states that microbial life exists and travels throughout the universe support this notion. Recent mathematical models have backed this by showing that microbial travel may be possible not only in our solar system, but throughout the galaxy.

Re: Alien Gogglebox

There must be some kind of life out there, we are just one of billions of galaxies life, of some kind, must have formed on a planet that could even be similar to ours, maybe life has evolved to be like us or , more likely, completely different, maybe even more advanced with technology we can only dream about, I doubt though, well ever find out, ..

How do you think governments would react to their arrival.
Panic or try communicating.

Agree, if more advanced Earth would probably be of no interest.

The Americans would bomb them, the Brits would offer them Hotel accommodation, free health care and put at least one in every TV Ad. The Aussies would just carry on as if nothing happened.
