Well, I ask this because I am certain that it'll happen very soon, between now and 1-3 years from now. And yes, I'm aware that it sounds very religious because I have no proof what so ever to back it up. It's just a gut feeling. So I was curious how people would react on such an event.
From the looks of the replies here, we won't have much of a panic. hehhe... although, we are probably less xenophobic in the tech community than "others" since we are "hopefully" more science related people.
A gut feeling that the aliens will arrive within a 3-year timeframe? That sounds slightly... Strange.
It's like having an n-sided die (where n is unknown) and having a gut feeling that the number x with pop up after m tries.
That sounds more like religion than statistics.
Still, I too tremendously enjoyed Into the Universe.
