Take Me To Your Leader!

The UN to appoint an astrophysicist to be the first contact for any aliens


Apparently the United Nations believes that earth has run out of problems to solve because they are now setting up a system to handle aliens visiting from outer space.  My question: Are they going to erect signs on Mars and the Moon with directions so the aliens can find this individual?

  1. Too bad for your UN-bashing it was a hoax:

    UN plan for 'alien ambassador' a case of science fiction?

    Malaysian astrophysicist Mazlan Othman denies Sunday Times report that she is to become Earth's first contact for ETs

  2. Actually, it is not so simple: http://www.oosa.unvienna.org/ And, there is at least one publication standing by the original story.

    Before you accuse me of UN-bashing, you might want to look at the description of the story I post. Note that it says "humor." If I was bashing the UN, "humor" would not be there.
