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.

The 58-year-old is expected to tell delegates that the proposal has been prompted by the recent discovery of hundreds of planets orbiting other starts, which is thought to make the discovery of extraterrestrial life more probable than ever before.

Mrs Othman is currently head of the UN’s little known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa).


More money, wisely spent...............:rolleyes:

All the ambassador will need is an account at DU.

Obama only backed this because he thought the UN was looking to appoint someone who would meet & greet illegal aliens.

If aliens landed and looked at the libs around the world....they would turn around and leave because of the lack of intelligence presented
