Sorry für diese BILD-artige Headline, aber wenns doch so ist!

Malaysia’s first astrophysicist will soon become Earth’s first official point-of-contact with aliens if they come a-calling. Datuk Dr Mazlan Othman, who heads the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa), would be the nearest thing that we have to a “take me to your leader” person when she takes on the new role. Allegedly the United Nations made the appointment over the weekend.

Dr Mazlan was reported to have told fellow scientists recently of an increased likelihood in the meeting with extraterrestrial life after a discovery of hundreds of planets around other stars.

Dr Mazlan: “(The United Nations) must be ready to co-ordinate humanity’s response to any first contact”.

Dr. Mazlan wird ihre Arbeit nächste Woche aufnehmen. Na dann mal viel Erfolg!

Wie sich mittlerweile heraustellte ist das ganze wohl ein Hoax.

“The article in the Sunday Times is nonsense,” the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa) said.

Wär auch zu schön gewesen.
