NASA, SETI Prepare for the Arrival of Aliens

Even though it may sound like something that comes out of the science-fiction books, the NASA American space agency and the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) initiative, along with scientists, psychologists, ethicists, lawyers, representatives of the media and anthropologists, have recently held a three day-long workshop, trying to find ways of dealing with the issue of how people would react if they were told that aliens had been found.

And the reason they have met is not that they have already found a little green man and don't know how to break the news to the public. They have met because modern advancements in science and in monitoring technologies might soon give scientists and astronomers the possibility to discover life, no matter how small, on moons such as Titan and Europe, or even on Mars. Astronomical finds already number in the hundreds, and new ones are made almost daily.

Unless the aliens are carrying a cookbook, I doubt mass hysteria would ensue. Microbes on Europa ("Europe" is a different planet altogether) would get a couple of weeks play in the media and then everyone would get back to watching American Idol.

I did some number crunching for SETI for quite a few years. Very interesting stuff.

Well, with Movies and TV shows dealing with the possibility/existence of life on other planets like Roswell, X-Files, Star Trek, etc... I think once the news that aliens hit mainstream, people would be more curious than scared.

IMO, it would be too arrogant of man to think that we're the only ones around and besides, considering this possibility gives people something to do, it also generates jobs Over-all, it has its role in the economy.

On the other hand, as far as the computing industry goes, if these beings are truly more advanced that us, imagine if we can over clock our old P4s to 10GHz without breaking a sweat, advanced memory multipliers that dynamically adjusts to the computing needs of the programs being run as well as dynamic storage media that just keeps growing and growing. Now that will be something, eh?

Anywho, nice story... We come in peace
