    They have been around for some time now, but where did the idea of little green
    men come from, or the big eyed hairless Ivan type, how many different alien forms are there ?

    The standard for the appearance of "greys" comes from the guy who wrote communion I believe. Or at least the artist who did his cover art.

    If you watch Maury, you are an alien.

    Although the first definitive description of the classic gray alien comes from Betty and Barney Hill, ca. 1961, there were similar references in movies, as well as hints in earlier, historical accounts; depending of course on how you wish to interpret things.

    Doesnt E=MC2 limit where aliens can come from, as long as we accept that this law cannot be broken?

    You wouldn't believe it if we told you. Let's just say that it's the lowest level to which Yank TV could sink, compared to which anything else on the air is a Mensa meeting.
