Physicist says aliens could be watching us through a space rock

Dr James Benford made the startling claim in the Astronomical Journal.

He believes that extraterrestrial life may have spotted the evolution of humans thousands of years ago, and placed robotic 'lurkers' on an asteroid to keep an eye on our progress.
