Bulgarian scientist Lachezar Filipov, who made world headlines in 2009 by claiming to be in touch with aliens, has been ranked among the top 10 believers in alien life by The Telegraph.
Filipov, who is the deputy head of the Space Research Institute of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, is ranked third after top world scientists such as revered physicist and cosmologist Professor Stephen Hawking and astronomer Lord Rees.
The rest of the top 10 believers in aliens, according to The Telegraph, are former NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell, former US President Jimmy Carter, Vatican theologian Monsignor Corrado Balducci, RAF commander Lord Downing, former US President Ronald Reagan, and USSR leader Mikhail Gorbachev.
"Aliens are currently all around us, and are watching us all the time. They are not hostile towards us, rather, they want to help us but we have not grown enough in order to establish direct contact with them," The Telegraph quotes Lachezar Filipov as saying in the fall of 2009.
It reminds that the Bulgarian government scientists from the country's Space Research Institute claimed that experts were trying to decipher a complex set of symbols sent to them, after posing aliens a list of 30 questions.
Filipov revealed that the center's researchers were analysing 150 crop circles from around the world, which they believe answer the questions.
He predicted that the human race was certainly going to have direct contact with the aliens in the next 10-15 years.
