Simon Foster, a physicist from Imperial College London, predicts that in 2017 "everything will change" once extraterrestrial life is found. He's not talking about aliens at a level comparable to ours, but microbial organisms on the moons Enceladus (Saturn) and Europa (Jupiter). Of course, some theorise that the reason we haven't heard anything from aliens is because they're too busy playing in virtual reality.

Foster notes that the past has been filled with false alarms where “we thought we had discovered aliens previously, it was a new form of star called the pulsar.” This occurred when a Fast Radio Burst was detected and mistaken for an alien signal, the event eventually leading to the discovery of a collapsed neutron star called a pulsar. More of the Fast Radio Bursts, their sources unknown, have since been detected, including the recent discovery of six repetitive radio bursts as reported by the Inquisitr, and alien signals are among the explanations for their existence. But Foster believes a breakthrough regarding the discovery of extraterrestrial life is imminent.

“We don’t know hardly anything and when we come up against something we don’t know or doesn’t fit into out current understanding, it is quite nice to say that it could be aliens, whereas a lot of it is just a phenomena that we haven’t discovered. Either way there is a breakthrough just around the corner,” he told Express.co.uk.
