+ - United Nations names Ambassador to Aliens->

Shag writes "Although searches for extraterrestrial intelligence have thus far come up empty, the United Nations appears to be preparing for eventual "first contact." Many media outlets are carrying the story that Mazlan Othman, a Malaysian astrophysicist who heads the UN's Office for Outer Space Affairs in Vienna — already charged with things like keeping track of satellites to prevent Kessler Syndrome and coordinating the international response to any earth-impacting asteroids — will be the first person to meet with aliens if they do show up."
