    It's true. Her name is Mazlan Othman from Malaysia and she will be the one to greet extraterrestrials and welcome them to earth. I just wonder what her salary will be. Do any of you find that this is shows the UN is out of its element?

    THE United Nations was set today to appoint an obscure Malaysian astrophysicist to act as Earth's first contact for any aliens that may come visiting.
    Mazlan Othman, the head of the UN's little-known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa), is to describe her potential new role next week at a scientific conference at the Royal Society’s Kavli conference centre in Buckinghamshire.


    She is scheduled to tell delegates that the recent discovery of hundreds of planets around other stars has made the detection of extraterrestrial life more likely than ever before - and that means the UN must be ready to coordinate humanity’s response to any “first contact

    Hopefully the first UFO to land will take the whole UN into space and crash land on some distant star.

    Whoopie, UN chooses a volunteer to be first in line for the rectal probe. I don't know. Seems right up their alley. (and as useful as anything else they do day to day) Best luck with all that, however...

    keep in mind it does not always go well. :tongue:

    What gets me is the first person of the Earth appointed to meet Aliens is a Muslim. That is a slap in the white european Americans who actually achieved the feat of going to the moon.

    Well Muslims are about 1 in 5 People so I do not see why it is such a big deal.

    Just in case they want to serve humanity, I nominate Dante for the position.

    I would have thought they'd appoint Dennis Kucinich.

    And why does this womans religion matter? It's not like aliens are actually going to come visit her.
