Image via WikipediaMalaysian astrophysicist, Mazlan Othman is the UN's go-to, er, girl on the matter of contact with aliens; you know, meet-and-greet protocols, alien encounter etiquette, do you shake hands with their tentacles, etc. etc.
She claims that alien life is "not always green aliens with large lovely eyes, but most likely bacteria." Sounds like she knows of which she speaks, otherwise, could she thus speak??!!
UNOOSA coordinates space exploration, satellites, the tracking and development of unified responses to threats from asteroids, meteors and space debris. It also formulates international laws and guidelines on the peaceful use of outer space.
And, while we probably won't be making close encounters of the third kind anytime soon, Othman says it makes sense for the U.N. and its member states to have an action plan in place -- who should represent humanity if aliens come out of the, er, woodwork and announce themselves to us.
Are you thinkin' what I'm thinking??!!
Have aliens already arrived, and have they infiltrated the world's most preeminent and essential institution, the, gasp, UN !!!!!????
As it says in the article, "the odds are greater than zero"!!!!
