Well, at least when the aliens come, we can do better than having Will Smith punch them in the face:
The plan to make Unoosa [UN Office of Space Affairs] the co-ordinating body for dealing with alien encounters will be debated by UN scientific advisory committees and should eventually reach the body’s general assembly.
Opinion is divided about how future extraterrestrial visitors should be greeted. Under the Outer Space Treaty on 1967, which Unoosa oversees, UN members agreed to protect Earth against contamination by alien species by “sterilising” them.
So, we have Unoosa, which is news to me. And who knew we would be doing mass sterilizations of aliens? (What could go wrong?) And now we have an official person who is to meet the aliens upon arrival:
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.
