That's also why bald men are so uptight.
I had finally occasion to see a documentary of that guy on Discovery some days ago. I have to admit that he's got something alien himself!

Now, I would start from this thinker to underline that ufology and alien matters in general can generate misleading contexts. Probably the most known are two

* the conspiracy theories [with US government and / or US military commands allied of an alien power to control the planet, usually ...]

* the foreign attempt to generate social concern. This was common in US and USSR in 50's when all out of ordinary was not above suspicion. Communists were behind UFO, someone said in America, but in the same time in USSR there was who thought that NLO [UFO in Russian] were US machines sent there to generate social disturb in the Soviet People [this is why USSR AA system opened fire against NLO and it happened that fighters tried and intercept them].

While most "ufology" is not real science, the numbers of observations of exoplanets grows fast. That I see as great scientific progress of this age, and may lead to some new insights about the challenges for life on earth nas well as beyond.

Although almost all of the so far discovered exo-planets do not appear Earth-like, this does not automatically exclude life or evolution upon them. Life, if it exists on any of them, will not, however, be like anything we can imagine.
The main quest here is to find an Earth-like planet in another star system. This does not occlude the moons of some of the many Jupiter sized planets (or larger) already discovered, either. We simply are currently unable to discern what moons, if any, might currently exist around any of these exo-planets. There could be literally thousands of moons around the already located objects. If the example of our own Solar System is common among other solar systems, there could be a ten to hundred fold increase in potential life supporting surfaces as well.
The most interesting and conclusive aspect will come from the discovery of life on another body within our own Solar System. Such information will practically guarantee fecundity for many bodies in other star systems. And with the discovery of life on several other locations within our Solar System, this will increase exponentially the likelihood of many more life inhabiting planets existing out there.
What is definitely known is that any planet that humans could comfortably exist on should have conditions not very different from our own planet. Gravity, oxygen, temperature and liquid water being absolute musts. However, it is not very likely that such a planet would exist without life already having taken hold upon it. Our biggest problem might come from the microbial forms of life on any exo-planet. Especially, since we would have absolutely no immunity to it. And it is most likely that the most common forms of life will exist at the microbial level. Immunization specialists will be in great demand.

It is his hair. In attempting to look more like humans, the aliens overdid the "hair" thing.

If a race were to enslave or entrust, however you see it hypothetically happening, humans to build some structure for them I feel the asthetics would be of little importance to them, hence, same basic structures with different design......and pyramids are only easy to build with legos...it is said the great pyramid of Giza took 20 years to build...given the sheer size and amount of stones each block would need to be quarried, cut and placed every 19 minutes at a constant rate to finish the job in time
