A FUTURE extraterrestrial invasion would be “game over” for Earth as the super-predator technology aliens would possess could “wipe out life in a heartbeat”, a UFO expert warns.
Nick Pope, who investigated UFOs for the British Government, warned that humans are likely to encounter aliens that are millions or billions of years ahead.
He told The Sun that the technology gap between the two species would be “unimaginable”.
Pope added: “When European explorers encountered Native Americans, it was guns and horses against bows and arrows.
“If we face an alien invasion, it would be stealth fighters against bows and arrows, and even that is understating the technology that they would have.
“Their technology would be indistinguishable from magic. It’s almost unimaginable.
“The weapons that an alien civilization may have could wipe out life in a heartbeat.
Pope speculated that there could be up to trillions of various civilizations out there, warning that some may be friendly or hostile.
He said: “It only takes the existence of one super predator species and you’re in trouble.”
Pope previously warned that humans are “toast” if E.T’s invade.
He said: “If we are being visited, a civilization that has figured out viable interstellar travel is going to be able to crack this planet open like a nut if they wanted to.”
The chilling warning comes as Professor Paul Springer, from the US Air Command and Staff College in Alabama, believes aliens would colonize Earth – similar to how the Europeans colonized the Americas 300 years ago.
He speculated that Earth’s nukes would be eliminated with lasers or improvised weapons such as asteroids guided to targets in a theoretical invasion.
And self-proclaimed TikTok time travelers wildly predicted that an alien invasion would lead to an “interdimensional” conflict with the US.
Last year saw the publication of the Pentagon’s eagerly anticipated investigation into unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs).
But, it concluded that 143 alleged sightings by US military pilots since 2004 remain unexplained.
Despite the lack of clarity, experts believe that this year could be a crucial year in attempting to uncover the UFO mystery.
Pope said: “I think 2022 is going to be critical. You can either just sit back and let things happen, in which case, you’ll lose initiative, or you can really take what happened last year.
“Having moved from fringe to mainstream, we need to keep asking hard questions holding government to account, and pushing for more initiatives and disclosures.”
He speculated that libertarian Republicans could “seize the reins” on the issue if the GOP takes back both houses of Congress in November’s midterm elections.
‘YEARS OF RIDICULE’
And last year, US President Joe Biden signed into law a new X-Files-style UFO unit that will probe odd encounters, as part of a multibillion-dollar defense spending package.
The office will probe whether or not the strange craft that has been reportedly buzzing the US military are unknown technology from Russia and China or potentially something more alien.
The office will also provide briefings on “any efforts to capture or exploit” the phenomena and also assess “health-related effects” for humans who have encountered the objects.
Unclassified reports on the phenomena will also have to be released each year on October 31.
Pope said: “Ufologists should be pleased and welcome the creation of the new office.
“Biden’s X-Files unit shows that there are people behind closed doors who say we need to take this issue seriously after years of ridicule.”
Mark Rodeghier, the scientific director of the Center for UFO Studies in Chicago, told Space.com: “The effort to detect track and measure the UFO phenomenon in the field, in real-time, has recently entered a new phase.
“The technology has gotten better, software tools have improved and the current interest in UFOs has attracted new, qualified professionals.”
“I believe that these efforts are very likely to succeed and set UFO research onto a new foundation of reliable, physical data.
“And as a consequence, we will have even more evidence — as if it was needed — that the UFO phenomenon is real and can be studied scientifically.”
The UFO debate has soared up the agenda in Washington as it was once considered a fringe conspiracy movement but is now a serious national security issue.
