Renowned physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking once warned that if the human race ever actually encountered intelligent extraterrestrial beings, the life forms could be “rapacious marauders roaming the cosmos in search of resources to plunder, and planets to conquer and colonise”. American author Mary Weber tackles this very subject in her latest young adult (YA) fiction novel The Evaporation Of Sofi Snow.

Speaking to Star2 via Skype from her home in California, Weber says she isn’t so sure that aliens from outer space will be as destructive as movies and TV shows usually make them out to be. Then again, they might not necessarily be entirely advantageous, either.
