Saying “advanced aliens could do this” is basically just a science “gotcha” headline to get people to publicize their article about how we could eventually do this.

if you wrote a paper that said that humans could do this in the future it would be just as accurate but probably wouldn’t show up in a social feed.

Ironically we financed the development of supercomputers so as to make better thermonuclear hydrogen bombs and their delivery systems
