That explains why, for a moment it appears all will be fine “We come in peace” says their leader as the music swells and a dove soars overhead Seconds later the Martian pulls out a laser gun and opens fire on a crowd of human onlookers Yet another blockbuster alien invasion has begun That’s Hollywood of course But the melodrama underscores one of humanity’s most widely held fears: that if and when we do encounter extraterrestrial beings they will wreak all kinds of havoc much as they do in the movies Or will they For his new book Aliens: The World’s Leading Scientists on the Search for Extraterrestrial Life quantum physicist Jim Al-Khalili asked a series of experts to explore how humans might actually make contact with aliens The possibility is not as far-fetched as it once seemed: since NASA launched its Kepler mission in 2009 researchers have discovered thousands of new planets and “revolutionized our concept of how many habitable worlds could exist” writes astrobiologist Nathalie Cabrol in one of the book’s essays But while Hollywood suggests we should expect to battle their inhabitants science tells a different story Here five popular alien myths that Aliens debunks MYTH NO 1: Aliens would eat us Movies like The Blob and Critters imagine aliens harvesting humans for food an unpleasant prospect But it doesn’t track with the science of nutrition writes astrobiologist Lewis Dartnell In order for aliens to get nourishment from eating us their bodies would have to be capable of processing our molecules (like amino acids and sugars) And that requires having a similar biochemistry–a long shot for a species that hails from a different world MYTH NO 2: Aliens would breed with us Both of this summer’s extraterrestrial blockbusters Alien: Covenant and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 involve human-alien hybrids But given that we can’t even reproduce with our nearest evolutionary relative the chimpanzee it’s “overwhelmingly improbable” we could do so with aliens according to Dartnell MYTH NO 3: Aliens would look like us Human evolution depended on so many unique and unpredictable factors it’s near impossible that an extraterrestrial species would have human-like features like the aliens in The Day the Earth Stood Still and Star Trek It’s far likelier writes neuroscientist Anil Seth that they’d be as different as the octopus “our very own terrestrial alien” which has a high level of intelligence a decentralized nervous system and an alternative style of consciousness MYTH NO 4: Aliens would be “living” creatures Even restrained films like Arrival get this one wrong according to some scientists Should aliens contact us cosmologist Martin Rees believes we will hear not from fellow organic creatures but from the robots they produced who can in theory live forever MYTH NO 5: Aliens would steal our water and metal The aliens in Independence Day famously arrive to strip Earth of its resources But again that logic doesn’t add up writes Dartnell Most of our metal is in the Earth’s core not its crust; asteroids would be far better targets for mining And icy moons like Jupiter’s Europa would be easier places to stock up on water They’re uninhabited and they don’t have Earth’s strong gravitational pull So if aliens aren’t interested in harvesting our lands or our bodies why would they make contact Dartnell suspects a purer motive: curiosity “If aliens did come to Earth” he writes it would probably be “as researchers: biologists anthropologists linguists keen to understand the peculiar workings of life on Earth to meet humanity and learn of our art music culture languages philosophies and religions” Presumably we would hide our alien movies Contact us at [email protected] This appears in the May 15 2017 issue of TIME IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s leading voices providing commentary on events in news society and culture We welcome outside contributions Opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of TIME editorsIt is one thing to be tortured still another to be tortured and silenced and something worse altogether to be tortured silenced and forgotten Like Dantes Hell Abu Zubaydah descends from one torment to another each worse than the last Wednesday evening Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump engaged in some election-year pot-banging about national security Trump vowed to engorge the military and defeat ISIS with a secret plan Clinton promised to stay the course set by President Obama But before we settle into this permanently militarized future we should recall the wreckage in our wake If there is a symbol of the US torture program he sits today in solitary confinement at a US prison in Cuba Zayn al Abidin Muhammad Husayn known to the world as Abu Zubaydah was the first person cast into a CIA black site and the first subjected to its "enhanced" interrogations He is the person for whom lawyers in the Bush Administration wrote the infamous torture memo which freed CIA contractors to brutalize him with impunity He is the only man in the world to have endured all of the authorized enhancements though he also suffered many techniqueslike "rectal rehydration"that were never approved Why was the CIA so eager to torture this man We know what some in the intelligence community believed at the time He was a senior leader in al-Qaeda and a close associate of Osama bin Laden He personally trained some of the 9/11 hijackers and his bloodstained fingerprints were all over al Qaedas previous operations That at least was the claim made by the highest officials in the Bush Administration beginning with the president Since that time of course the rest of the world has learned what some of us have known for many years In 2014 the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence completed what is by far the most comprehensive study of the CIA rendition and interrogation program The Committee examined over six million pages of primary source material from the CIA From its meticulous review the Committee concluded the Agency was to put it gently mistaken Zubaydah was never a member of al-Qaeda let alone one of its high ranking officers He had no connection either to the attacks of 9/11 or to al Qaedas terror This of course is precisely what Zubaydah told his torturers over and over perhaps as he was strapped once more to that water-soaked board stuffed again into that coffin built just for him or hung again from the hooks in the ceiling at the black site outside Bangkok In 2006 the CIA transferred Zubaydah to Guantanamo where he remains But unlike other CIA prisoners whose interrogations were "enhanced" Zubaydah has never been charged with a crime either in a federal court or a military commission In fact he has never appeared in a court of any kind whether military or civilian kangaroo or conventional And if the United States has its way he never will As his torture began his interrogators sought and received "assurances" that he would "remain in isolation and incommunicado for the remainder of his life" Assurances were immediately forthcoming: CIA headquarters responded that "all major players are in concurrence that [Abu Zubaydah] should remain incommunicado for the remainder of his life" Apart from a select fewincluding the men who tortured him a handful of other prisoners and government functionaries and his lawyers myself includedno one in the world has heard him speak since 2002 He was recently seen on video for a few minutes at Guantanamos parody of a parole hearing The notion of a parole hearing for a person who has never been convicted is an oxymoron but nothing about Guantanamo can be likened to legal forms And there would be no more than this "fleeting glimpse" Zubaydah was not allowed to speak lest the world might listen Worse my co-counsel Mark Denbeaux a law professor at Seton Hall had planned to attend the proceeding to speak on Zubaydahs behalf If Zayn cannot speak at least we might speak for him But at the last minute Mark had to cancel his flight to be at his wifes bedside as she went through emergency surgery We pleaded to set the hearing back a few days The government was unmoved The silence continues We have no illusion that Abu Zubaydah will be cleared by this Alice-in-Wonderland tribunal The unbridgeable gulf between patriotic myth and tortured reality embarrasses the United States which has never been good at atoning for its mistakesat least not so long as they can still speak We have tried to impart all this to our client but we can never be sure how much he understands He still has shrapnel lodged deep in his brain from when he was fighting the communists in Afghanistan back when Ronald Reagan and other brave hearts thought it was a good and honorable thing to be a mujahid whom Reagan repeatedly described as "Afghanistan’s freedom fighters" And of course Zubaydahs mental and physical state suffered a great deal at the hands of the CIA Meanwhile the Obama Administration winds down A few more prisoners will be released from Guantanamo before January 2017 but Zayn will not be among them And as Wednesdays choreographed display made clear neither of the current contenders for the Oval Office give a damn about what happens next on our desolate island prison so the future holds little hope Having tortured him they seem to figure it is better that he be silenced and best that he be forgotten at least until he dies After all that is the assurance we provided to his torturers Then we can be great again Contact us at [email protected] a priority of
