Preface: I suspect that almost everyone hopes the UFOs which are seen so frequently are indeed starships full of extraterrestrials and that they send out scout-craft and probes to Earth as well as sending manned crews down to look us over. Strangely, most people feel this way even if they are frightened of the extraterrestrials.

The concept of probes traveling though deep space and arriving unmanned from a far distant advanced world, is perhaps a disappointing concept to most. However, if we take a realistic look at it, this aspect of the UFO phenomenon is entirely possible, even likely.

Let’s take a look at two types of probes which might be used by an advanced extraterrestrial race, assuming that scientific principles are the same, math is the same, and forces of the cosmos are the same for them as for us. There might be visible von Neumann probes which arrived at Earth through a self-replicating process, taking perhaps half a million years to arrive here.

Second, there might be nano-probes which are invisible to our normal vision. Introduction: I suspect that almost everyone hopes the UFOs which are seen frequently are indeed starships full of extraterrestrials and that they send scout-craft to Earth with manned crews aboard to look us over. Unmanned probes which travel from far distant planets tend not to be considered because it is seemingly not as exciting an idea.

Unmanned probes might be launched from ET-populated ships in orbit above Earth; this is the assumed premise, and probably is reality. However, if we take advancements in our own science into consideration, there is another possibility which might be used by other advanced civilizations. So, while one species of ET might visit Earth in person, many others might simply send unmanned probes over space and time.

Let’s take a look at two types of probes which might be used by an advanced extraterrestrial race, assuming that scientific principles are the same, math is the same, and forces of the cosmos are the same for them as for us.

There might be visible von Neumann probes which arrived at Earth through a self-replicating process, taking perhaps half a million years to arrive here. Second, there might be nano-probes which are invisible to our normal vision. Visible von Neumann Probes: Mysterious unidentified flying probes the size of a basketball or grapefruit have been seen zinging through rural areas, city streets, and suburban neighborhoods for many years.

There are reports of a small orb looking in a bedroom window or chasing a car. Long before the advent of drones and before computer generated hoaxes, small UFO probes were among us. They still are. These small objects move in ways which are impossible for any known craft; Earth drones now fill the skies as well but cannot fly straight up and out of site in the matter of a few seconds, and—drones only recently became a reality.

Note: When one asks Google to find “tiny ufo probes” many cases are available. At the close of this article, I will list just a few (I do not vouch for the veracity of cases I’ll list), but I urge the reader to delve several pages into Google on this topic because there are many such reports and articles.

We assume that these small probes leave a ship the same way as fighter jets leave aircraft carriers. However, there may be a different origin for small probe-like UFOs. We need to look at a theory by a human scientist named von Neumann.

John von Neumann was a Hungarian-born American mathematician; in the late 1940’s he proposed a mathematical theory envisioning machines which could make exact copies of themselves. A self-replicating machine might be the size of a bread box, for example. UFO Depiction Today, aerospace scientists have used von Neumann’s theory to suggest that von Neumann probes can be launched from Earth and eventually spread to many different planets because they would be self-replicating machines, spreading ever-outward.

We have to wonder if the same advanced science has been discovered by alien worlds; might some of the probe-like UFOs which we witness, have come to Earth from millions of light years away?

Here is the scenario which envisions von Neumann machines (self-replicating probes), being used for exploration of the galaxy: Von Neumann probes would be launched from Earth into space, probably using nuclear fusion for power. They would replicate themselves by landing on asteroids, comets or moons and making copies of themselves by using available materials. The many replicas would launch, pushing farther into interstellar space.

These replicas would continue to spread out across space much like viruses spread. The original probes would replicate 10 copies of themselves but as the probes continue to hop from solid planetoid to solid planetoid, soon there would be 1000 copies, then 100,000, then one million copies. In this way, many of the millions of alien worlds in our galaxy would be reached by these probes sent from Earth.

It would take, according to most estimates, half a million years for our probes to reach the far side of the galaxy if they travel at one tenth the speed of light. Therefore, it is likely the creators of the von Neumann probes would be dead; possibly the human race might be extinct by the time the farthest probe sent back its information.

It is also possible that the ETs who might have sent out self-replicating probes from their home world toward Earth, are an extinct race by the time their probe zooms around our neighborhoods. However, for relatively close planets, self-replicating probes could be at a destination in a few months.

Would every replicated probe find itself a world to explore? No doubt many probes would go astray, lost in the vast darkness and shredded by the brutal forces of space/time, but like seeds from a maple tree, some would land on worlds with which they would be compatible. They would begin their investigations and send the information back to Earth by the same methods which our Solar System probes send back information in the present day.

Every American deep space mission has constant radio communication between Earth and the space vehicle. We have a variety of probes investigating the Solar System at any time, and due to the rotation of the Earth, we have multiple stations on Earth which stretch around the globe. Deep Space NASA communication stations are found in California, Australia and Spain. These are approximately 120 degrees apart in longitude, which enables continuous overlapping reception of multiple spacecraft radio links.

Von Neumann probes could beam information back to Earth in this way just as the Philae Probe of Comet 67P. However, for the replicating probes which reach the far out into the galaxy, our present space communication methods might not work over such vast distances. “Star Trek” uses a fictional mode of communication across interstellar space called “subspace frequency.”

The idea that information can be sent through a “‘shortcut” in space/time is being researched but is not yet a reality.

Do we see small UFOs which are actually probes sent into space many years ago from a distant planet? And, might even some large UFOs be self-replicating, robotic probes? There is no limit on large size for a von Neumann probe, it could be as large as a “normal-size” UFO.

There is a mind boggling alternative to von Neumann probes which are the size of a bread box, a grapefruit, a car, or a large ship. What if extraterrestrial probes, having traveled from far across the galaxy, are too tiny for us to see?

UFO Depiction Nanorobot Probes (nanobot probes): Nanobots are tiny, microscopic-sized machines designed to perform a specific task repeatedly and with precision at nanoscale dimensions; that is, dimensions of a few nanometers (nm) or less, where 1 nm = 10-9 meter. It is proposed that these virus-size machines could be self-replicating.

We humans stand on the threshold of developing nanobots. For instance, there is astounding potential for incredible medical innovations using nanobots which will be able to cure many fatal diseases and genetic imperfections; it could be as easy as injecting a nanobot into the patient.

Nanobots will also function at the atomic or molecular level to build devices, machines, or circuits, a process known as molecular manufacturing. Nanobots have potential applications in the assembly and maintenance of advanced systems; they produce copies of themselves to replace worn-out units, a process called self-replication. Nanobots of the tiny molecular world could well be a constant in advanced science which exists on advanced extraterrestrial worlds as well.

Looking at self-replicating nano-ships to the stars from the human/Earth point of view, here is how it would work: We launch a space capsule of tiny nanobots created to self-replicate as they spread outward, with the main objective of exploring strange new worlds. Using the Faraday Effect, which is an interaction between light and a magnetic field, we will slingshot the nanobots, by whipping them around Earth or even Jupiter several times.

We have already done this with various space craft, including the Rosetta craft which slingshot around Earth three times picking up speed and then delivered the Philae probe to Comet 67P. This slingshot speed-up will send the nanobots out into deep space. The nanobot probes would not even interfere with life on an alien planet if the beings on said planet see the macro-world which we humans do. Our nanobot probes would be invisible.

If you think the technology is unrealistic, even for an advanced race, just look at what quantum computers are – and they are becoming a reality here on Earth.

The definition of a quantum computer: a computer that makes use of the quantum states of subatomic particles to store information


And now the big question: Are there extraterrestrial nanobot probes zooming around Earth which we cannot even see? Yes, this is the stuff of paranoia but it could be true.

The question has been asked, if von Neumann probes are a viable means of galactic exploration, why do we not see von Neumann type of extraterrestrial probes flying around Earth?

Who says we don’t? There are thousands of reports of probe-type of UFOs, perhaps too small to be manned vehicles. But beyond this, what if extraterrestrial probes are not the size of a bread box but instead are molecular size? Then we cannot see them at all.

Might one of these nanobots enter into the bodily system of an abductee or contactee? Is this why those who have experienced close UFO contact become so obsessed with UFOs? Remember that in the future, it is envisioned that our own nanobots can enter an individual’s system and cure/stop the cancer inside of him, or correct a faulty gene which creates a serious birth defect.

The concept of nanobots entering the human system to give medical help or even to provide information is an important part of the research being done today to develop nanobots. Nanobots are one method of creating the Singularity between humans with computers; a human would host a nanobot or two and suddenly have access to vast information and knowledge.

Might invisible nanobots from a far distant planet actually enter into a human’s body?

Could larger robotic machines aboard a von Neumann probe even conduct the abduction of a human? Many such questions can be examined in the light of highly advanced probes from an equally advanced ET planet. Might molecular-sized nanobots or even von Neumann machines, be used by ETs to change human consciousness slowly while ETs remain safe on their own world?

Our own first generation nanobots launched in perhaps 2045, eventually will be sending back information from the far side of the galaxy to humans millions of years in the future. Or, if time is indeed cyclical, perhaps our self-replicating probes might be sending information back to our distant ancestors, long past.

UFO Depiction Finally, we are reminded of the mysterious black monoliths in “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Arthur C. Clarke acknowledged that the monoliths were large, self-replicating von Neumann probes and were sent out by an advanced galactic race.

The theory that von Neumann machines and nanobot probes are used by extraterrestrials is indeed only an outside-the-box theory, but perhaps something to consider. I remember Einstein’s words, “We cannot solve a problem at the level which created it.” This wisdom should apply to the UFO puzzle as well.

I believe that we must look to our own advancing scientific frontiers to begin to understand UFOs.
