United Nations Prepares to Greet Space Aliens

Posted by Dave Blount at September 29, 2010 2:34 PM

When the United Nations isn't denouncing America, cooking up phony climate "research," or scheming to impose a collectivist world government, it tends to more constructive matters — like preparing a diplomatic mission for aliens from outer space. No, I'm not kidding:

Mazlan Othman, a Malaysian astrophysicist, is set to be tasked with co-ordinating humanity's response if and when extraterrestrials make contact.
Aliens who landed on earth and asked: "Take me to your leader" would be directed to Mrs Othman.
She will set out the details of her proposed new role at a Royal Society conference in Buckinghamshire next week. …
Mrs Othman is currently head of the UN's little known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa).

Let's hope the aliens don't send down any children. We could have an intergalactic incident if they get raped by UN peacekeepers.
