and forced in a television program are an extraterrestrial intelligence (and live), this is because in the TV show Stargazing actually found an exoplanet live and live-which was named Threapleton Holmes B-, so the claim is not entirely implausible.
“In the program last year, when we discovered Threapleton Holmes B , “said Cox in an interview,” we decided that was there listening to the telescope Jodrell Bank observatory . No one had pointed a radio telescope before the exoplanet and you never know! “
According to reports the physical, the BBC bosses berated him: “You can not do that. We need first to review the editorial guidelines for guidelines as health, safety, and so, if they discover an alien civilization. “ To which Cox replied, surprised that “if we found a form of intelligent life beyond Earth, live and direct, would you be worried for the health and safety standards?”
