    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).

    All the ambassador will need is an account at DU.

    Somebody has to greet the OBlah Blah idiot appointees. What better way to greet DIMWIT-o-RATS?

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

    I'll bet Kucinich feel's snubbed.
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."
    —Thomas Paine, Common Sense
