Aliens ‘May’ Be Real – Is Satyajit Ray’s Ang Really Out There?

Are aliens real or is it a long-standing mass delusion?

The excitement of the presence of extraterrestrial life in other planets is actually too much to be contained. We want to believe and look up to the skies for it.

It has always been a dilly dally affair when it comes to debating about aliens with the government officials. While governments would usually deny, it does leave many untied strings for the truth seeker.

But what happens when a NASA scientist says alien life may be true? Would you dare question someone like Stephen Hawking?

What Does NASA Say On Alien Life? 

“If the government is covering up knowledge of aliens, they are doing a better job of it than they do at anything else.” – Stephen Hawking

In 2018, Fox News made headlines with a talk with Silvano Colombano, a NASA scientist who admitted that earth has been visited by alien life. As expected, it created controversy and disbelief. But it also validated the Ancient Alien theory.

The United States of America has always been the hotspot of UFO phenomena. A survey by a retail company revealed a surprising result – 62% of Americans believed that aliens are real.


More surprisingly, thousands of witnesses have claimed to have seen flying saucers. Hundreds more even claim to have been ‘abducted’ by aliens and returned after physical ‘examinations’.

While these sound like fantastic claims, and NASA has always evaded the question on alien life some questions still remain. But the space agency has also stated that they are sure to find alien life very soon. In a public panel discussion in Washington, NASA chief scientist Ellen Stofan said “I think we’re going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth within a decade, and I think we’re going to have definitive evidence within 20 to 30 years.” He added “We know where to look. We know how to look. In most cases, we have the technology, and we’re on a path to implementing it.”

Could this be that they are on to something ? Have they found real evidence on aliens?

Aliens Real or myth

NASA appoints officer for Planetary Protection

In 2018, Dr. Lisa Pratt was given a unique job in NASA. She was the first Planetary Protection Officer of NASA.

As the Planetary Protection Officer, she has unique and eye-raising job. Dr. Pratt is responsible for protecting Earth by keeping away alien life. When astronauts, satellites and any other vehicle returns from space, Dr. Pratt sees to it that these do not contaminate the earth with alien life. She also sees to it that life from earth in no way contaminates other planets.

Many have said that although NASA directly denies all claims of spotting or knowing about alien life, this act is a proof that they have definitely found something. For whatever reasons, the proof of aliens is being kept secret by NASA.

Are Aliens Real? 

The legendary Satyajit Ray had been an avid believer in aliens and extraterrestrials. His short stories  and tales of the adventures of Professor Shonku in space is truly an asset. While Steven Spielberg’s movie ET became an unforgettable classic, it had its roots based in Mr. Ang of Bonkubabur Diary, which was scripted as the ‘Alien’ for Hollywood production.

Renowned scientist Stephen Hawking himself spoke of alien life. He warned NASA and space programs of blindly venturing into search for alien life and spoke of its dangers. “If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans,” he said in an interview with Discover Channel in 2010.

Many archaeologists and historians have found evidence of aliens visiting earth in the form of highly advanced technology and construction. There have been more anomalous findings like skulls with non-human characteristics. Sculptures and depictions of astronauts and alien looking creatures drawn by cave men and ancient civilizations all around the globe do raise some very grave questions.

Nikola Tesla was one of the greatest minds on earth, compared with Albert Einstein and was even called better than him. The scientist had a strong belief in aliens.

“I have a deep conviction that highly intelligent beings exist on Mars,” Tesla told a reporter from the Albany Telegram in 1923. “While experimenting in Colorado…I obtained extraordinary experimental evidence of the existence of life on Mars. I had perfected a wireless receiver of extraordinary sensitiveness, far beyond anything known, and I caught signals which I interpreted as meaning 1–2–3–4. I believe the Martians used numbers for communication because numbers are universal.”
– Nikola Tesla

Why is it taking so long to find an answer?

On March 18 2019, leading experts and scientists in the fields of astrophysics, biology, sociology, psychology, and history met at Cité, the science museum in Paris. This discussion was organized by METI International. METI is an acronym for messaging extraterrestrial intelligence and in every two years, they hold this elite meeting.

The agenda of this meeting is to discuss why it is taking so much time for us to find solid proof of aliens whereas circumstantial evidence of it is everywhere. While the extraterrestrials have contacted selective individuals, why have they not appeared to us in broad daylight in their shining UFOs. This question has been bothering many a scientific mind.

This dilemma is called the Fermi’s Paradox. It says “Fermi’s Paradox is the apparent contradiction between the high probability of the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations and the lack of contact with such civilizations.”

Enrico Fermi, an Italian physicist and maker of the world’s first nuclear reactor, did notice this strange anomaly. He said that two things can happen – either we are totally alone in this vast space, no other life lives outside earth, not even in one of the billion planets.

The other one is that he suspects that we were being observed as a species by extraterrestrial races. The researchers and scientists met at the Cité to discuss the second probability and what could be its implications. Are we in a ‘galactic zoo’ they asked? Why are our radio signals being answered and yet not being answered?

Between the ‘Are We Alone’ and ‘The Great Silence’ all we can do is speculate.

Black Knight Satellite 

The Black Knight Satellite is proof of aliens staring right in front of us. An unknown artificial satellite orbits around the earth since decades. It does not belong to any nation or organization on earth. Top scientist Nikola Tesla had intercepted its transmissions in 1899 during his radio experiments. This was way before the first artificial satellite Sputnik was launched in 1957 by Russia. The Black Knight Satellite is believed to a lot older than the Sputnik.

This satellite of unknown origin is said to emit long delayed radio echoes which have been picked up and analyzed by many scientists. It is obvious that these are being emitted by a well placed mechanism unknown to man. Some experts have concluded that this satellite could have been placed here since thousands of years.

While NASA and other space agencies have called it space debris, none of them have been able to reach near the satellite itself. It is protected by a security shield through which even our latest war machines cannot pass.

The Black Knight Satellite moves around the near-polar orbit and it has also been spotted by astronauts from space.

Was this dark object placed by aliens for a purpose? We wait for the answers.
