    Ancient ‘spacefaring aliens’ in our solar system billions of years before humans

    A Manned mission to Mars may help confirm this theory.

    YE OLDE ALIENS Ancient ‘spacefaring aliens’ may have lived in our solar system billions of years before humans, scientist suggests

    Academic says advanced extraterrestrials could have thrived on Earth, Mars and even Venus - before disappearing without a trace
    By Jasper Hamill for The Sun UK




    THE SOLAR system humanity calls home may have once been inhabited by an extinct species of spacefaring aliens, a top scientist has suggested.

    An American space boffin has suggested ancient extraterrestrials could have lived on Mars, Venus or even Planet Earth before disappearing without a trace.


    In a fascinating academic paper about “prior indigenous technological species”, James T. Wright from the Pennsylvania State University raised the fascinating possibility that evidence of these extinct aliens could exist somewhere in the solar system.

    Wright is an astronomer who received global attention after suggesting an “alien megastructure” had been spotted in orbit around a distant star.

    Now the stargazer has said advanced aliens may have left behind “technosignatures” for us to find – if only we knew where to look for them.


    “A prior indigenous technological species might have arisen on ancient Earth or another body, such as a pre-greenhouse Venus or a wet Mars,” he wrote.

    However, most of the archaeological evidence of an ancient civilisation would probably have been been lost.

    Earth’s plate tectonics would have “erased” the traces of a civilisation that lived billions of years ago.

    Venus is in the grip of a severe greenhouse effect and also undergoes similar “resurfacing” which would scour its land clean of artefacts.

    This leaves just a handful of places where archaeologists might find traces of a lost extraterrestrial civilisation.

    “Remaining indigenous technosignatures might be expected to be extremely old, limiting the places they might still be found to beneath the surfaces of Mars and the Moon, or in the outer Solar System,” Wright added.

    He said alien evidence was likely to be buried beneath the ground, allowing it to survive asteroid impacts.

    I find it fascinating, that whenever the question of an alien civilization is ever discussed or even mentioned, they are either 1. very very old i.e. "ancient" or 2. they are or could be very far far away!

    This keeps "Joe Public" from being too concerned that "they" may very well be; "now and in our own backyard".

    Well, you wouldn't want to scare people too much by telling them "they're here!", would you?

    FWIW, two people I know had regression sessions in which they were taken back to lifetimes on Earth, approx. 4 million years ago, where they lived in a extraterrestrial settlement in what is now Peru. They were extraterrestrial at the time, allegedly from a planet circling Sirius.

    What was interesting here is that both had not met before but independently of one another described two lifetimes together.
    (When they met, they recognized each other as a person from the sessions they had done).

    Anyway, back to the topic: those regression sessions mention extraterrestrial colonies on Earth, some millions of years ago.

    A brief summary of Jason Wright's paper, focusing on alien "technosignatures", is presented in this video:

    While we're on the topic of civilizations living underground be they ancient and/or contemporaneous...

    Humanity should be focusing on building massive DEEP underground bomb shelters now. Enough of them to provide long term shelter not just for the privileged few, but for EVERYONE. They should be built not only in the case of a nuclear war and its fallout but for many other kinds of major catastrophic events too; a few of which we are long overdue for.

    The money we are currently pouring into the space program, and other non-essential gov't programs as well, should be going towards building those shelters instead.

    Only after that task is completed, can go back and take up where we left off in space exploration.

    What makes you think they haven't built those? But, yeah, only a selected few have been invited...

    I did a little research on this and the US has a number of fallout shelters but far too few to cover anywhere near the bulk of the population. The bottom line is, if we're hit by a nuclear bomb, with the exception of a few, we're all toast. Russia, on the other hand has been building shelters like crazy over the past few years. Thousands of them. Are they planning on sending a few missiles our way (meaning the US) sometime in the near future? Kinda makes you wonder doesn't it? Sure hope the meeting between Putin and Trump went well today.

    Also read that the State of Hawaii is planning on refurbishing those shelters they DO have because of their concerns about N. Korea. They just passed legislation on that not too long ago.
