In addition to the three items I noted earlier about Earth, which might well make it of interest to aliens, I should have added that it is inhabited by a primitive society whose major activity is tribal warfare. This society which killed 50 million of its own kind in WW 2 and destroyed 1700 cities, has learned to tap nuclear energy, not only for fission propulsion-submarines which can circle the globe underwater, aircraft carriers that can operate for 18 years without refueling, fission rockets than can operate at 4400 Megawatts (twice Grand Coulee dam) in a system less than 8' in diameter, but has controlled nuclear fusion to the extent that one bomb has released the energy of 57 million tons of TNT. Fusion rocket systems can eject particles having 10 million times as much energy per particle as in a chemical rocket. I should think the "galactic federation" would want to make sure no representatives from here went out there. Do note also that mankind has exploded 2000 nuclear weapons. Robert Hastings has provided strong evidence that the aliens are interested in our nuclear weapons. Stan Friedman Listen to 'Strange Days...
