Among the groundbreaking disclosures leaked by Edward Snowden, he’s now revealing sensitive subjects: aliens.
Edward Snowden, the former contractor who leaked National Security Agency secrets publicly in 2013, is now getting attention for an odd subject: extraterrestrials.
In a podcast interview with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, Snowden says that alien communications might be encrypted so well that humans trying to eavesdrop on extraterrestrials would have no idea they were hearing anything but noise. There’s only a small window in the development of communication in which unencrypted messages are the norm, Snowden said.
“So if you have an alien civilization trying to listen for other civilizations, or our civilization trying to listen for aliens, there’s only one small period in the development of their society where all of their communications will be sent via the most primitive and most unprotected means,” he said.
By some he’s considered a traitor, but some think of him as a hero. Edward Snowden had the courage to reveal secrets that the world deserved to know!
Snowden also spoke openly about dropping out of high school, enlisting in the military, and getting skeptical about U.S. programs.
