Is it possible that intelligent life has evolved in the local
area of the galaxy? If so, what are the chances it could reach earth, using
the most advanced (theorized) technology? Does the US Government have plans to
deal with an alien encounter (such as in Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind)?
Good question. It certainly is possible, although there is no
publicly known evidence for extraterrestrial intelligence. The government
probably does have plans, but they are not telling us.
