‘Aliens may be staring us in the face’

Aliens may be ‘staring us in the face’ according to Lord Martin Rees, the president of the Royal Society Lord Martin Rees, president of the Royal Society and astronomer to the Queen, said the existence of extra terrestrial life may be beyond human understanding.He made the remarks shortly after hosting the national science academy’s first conference on the possibility of alien life.They could be staring us in the face and we just don’t recognise them. The problem is that we’re looking for something very much like us, assuming that they at least have something like the same mathematics and technology,” he said.“I suspect there could be life and intelligence out there in forms we can’t conceive. Just as a chimpanzee can’t understand quantum theory, it could be there as aspects of reality that are beyond the capacity of our brains.”
