In a speech at a science forum held in the city of Guangzhou on August 23, a veteran Chinese astronomer with almost 40 years experience claimed that some UFOs are extraterrestrial spacecraft.
Professor Wang Sichao is a planetary astronomer at the Purple Hills Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Based on scientific observations of UFOs over his 39 year career, he has concluded that some are powered by antigravity devices.
Also, in contrast to Professor Stephen Hawking, who recently declared intelligent extraterrestrial life was likely to be predatory in nature, Wang dismissed such thinking as premature.
He claimed some extraterrestrials are visiting Earth in a Research and Development capacity, and are therefore friendly enough to begin cooperation and mutual exchanges.
A summary of Wang’s speech was reported by a number of China newspapers including the influential People’s Daily Online. This ensures wide coverage in China, and raises the following question.
Are Chinese authorities tacitly
encouraging an ‘exopolitics debate’ over the motivations of advanced
alien life in order to prepare the Chinese and world public for the
inevitable official disclosure of the existence of
This is how the People’s Daily Online summarized Wang’s reasoning:
According to a report in another Chinese online newspaper, Sina.com.cn, Wang stated that the extraterrestrials appear to be engaged in a scientific Research and Development mission.
This contributed to Wang concluding that Hawking’s views regarding hostile intelligent extraterrestrial life was premature.
Wang’s speech has yet to be translated into English and released for distribution, but the prominent coverage given to it in China is certain to generate much interest in the rest of the world.
The People’s Daily Online is an official organ of the Chinese communist party that still exercises tight control over all media sources.
This suggests that Wang has tacit
official approval to disseminate his views to the media, and for
the Chinese media to report on his conclusions, thereby generating
an exopolitics debate between scientists over the motivations of
A global exopolitics debate among
influential scientists on the motivations of extraterrestrial life,
whether aliens are actually visiting the Earth in UFOs or not, is
most definitely underway.
