Aliens, if they exist, are an enormous 650 pounds: scientist

Aliens, if they exist, are likely huge. At least that’s the conclusion of a new paper by cosmologist Fergus Simpson, who has estimated that the average weight of intelligent extraterrestrials would be 650 pounds (300 kilograms) or more. ET would have paled in comparison to these interstellar behemoths.

I don't get your joke

To me it just looks silly, there's simply no scientific data to allow such predictions, and if we're ther, at the size we are, there certainly isn't any necessity for aliens to be huge...
then again I did not get the hutt joke either, but I hate hutts and the SW franchise

The limited resolution with current planet detection methods, star wobbles and pixel blips, will lead to spotting big planets first and dumb apes thinking big animals - safe to assume small planets will be more common than big once the data trawl becomes more accurate, law of averages. The aliens will be little green men as they always have been on the day the saucers land....and they start taking over the shop.

“Polar bears are large but do not write great literature and build radio towers,” Shostak says with a laugh, “and a lot of that is probably because they are walking around on all fours.”

Since the number of planets inhabited by relatively small animals would outnumber the amount of worlds where large ones predominate, it is most likely that we find ourselves on a planet with relatively small animals—and are ourselves probably one of the smaller intelligent beings, he adds.
So when it gets to star wars, we are going to be the little yodas! :yoda:
