Inside the United Nations has a body that is prepared for possible contact with an alien race.
The UN Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (CPUOS) was established in 1959. Their aim is to promote the issues of international importance in outer space, as well as the proceedings with all the legal issues that may arise in space.
Professor John Zarnetsky from the Open University and Dr Martin Dominik of the University of St Andrews said that social unrest could be avoided if there will be an international body that will oversee the contact between humans and aliens.
In 2010, the director of the UN Office for Outer Space (UNOOSA), Mazlan Othman said that "statistically, extraterrestrial life is possible."
Othman said that researchers are finding more and more Earth-like planets that are in the "habitable zones", which are likely to contain life. She believes that the world "must come together to develop a plan" on how to act in case of detection of extraterrestrial life. Othman also said that the UN should be the sole authority to direct contact and the management company, if aliens come to Earth. Being a legitimate international body of the Earth, the UN will develop laws and guidelines on how to achieve peace with the aliens.
For 22 light-years from us, astronomers have discovered (in English) planet in the "habitable zone," which may contain life.
The planet was named Gilese 667Cc (previously found on the characteristics of the same planet, dubbed Gliese 581g; approx. Mixednews.ru). It is in orbit the red dwarf. Scientists believe that it is made of stone, and not a gas, which is normal for orbiting the red dwarf planets.
European Southern Observatory double checked the data on Gliese. Scientists from Göttingen and the University of California suggested that Gliese takes 10 percent less light than our planet receives from the sun.
Astronomer Steven Vogt of the University of California said: "This is the Holy Grail of exoplanet research — to find a planet, orbiting the star at the right distance, which is not too close to losing all its water and not too far for her to freeze. She was just in the habitable zone, this is no question or dispute. "
Because the light emitted by a red dwarf, is the infrared, Gliese can get as much power as the Earth, and the possibility of finding water on the planet is large. Researchers also believe that the surface temperature can be compared with the Earth.
Astronomers are very worried about newfound planet.
Guillem Anglada-escudo of Gottingen University, said:
With the advent of a new generation of tools, researchers can explore a lot of dwarfs for these planets and eventually look at one of these worlds, the spectral features of life.
Although UNOOSA and denies that Osman is the official ambassador of the Earth in future contact with aliens, the Royal Society published a paper about the meeting, which show that Othman has participated in expert advice on extraterrestrial life, and even contact potential contamination here on Earth from aliens .
Scientists from the Royal Society published (in English) paper, which apply to all aspects of extraterrestrial life, believing that this issue should be considered as a serious possibility for scientific and government circles.
"Whether due process based on expert opinions, spetsilaziruyuschihsya scientists on these issues, properly raised, or the interests of power and opportunism more likely to customize the solution of this issue on the sidelines?" Asks Zarnetsky.
In "Finding extraterrestrial life and the consequences for science and society", Zarnetsky writes that humanity "must be prepared for the consequences" of extraterrestrial invasions.
Professor of evolutionary paleobiology at Cambridge University, Simon Conway Morris argues that the aliens are hostile (English), and on the basis of such a provision should be adequate preparation. Morris said that extraterrestrial life is based on "the same biological molecules" that humans and aliens can be "our tendency to violence and exploitation."
Professor of systematic theology at Pacific Lutheran Seminary of theology in California Ted Peters believes that contact with aliens would have significantly affected the world's religions, perhaps leading to the collapse of the "generally accepted principles."
He claims that the Bible supports the idea of aliens as God's creatures, and they "will be treated as a gift loving and merciful God."
Even the U.S. government is preparing for an alien invasion … or contact.
At the last Passover Pentagon led by Professor Paul Springer spent beta testing scenarios alien invasion.
