When the little green men show up on their space shuttle, they might have trouble finding a leader to talk to.

Despite some of the most promising science fiction reports out there, the United Nations will not be appointing an ambassador to extraterrestrials.

The Martian madness began with a report in the London Telegraph that “Mazlan [Marian] Othman, a Malaysian astrophysicist, is set to be tasked with co-ordinating humanity’s response if and when extraterrestrials make contact.”

Othman was appointed the director of the United Nations’ Office for Outer Space Affairs in 1999. According to the Telegraph story, the scientist would announce her new role at a Royal Society conference in Buckinghamshire next week.

The real life “Men In Black” story burned through the Internet, but the Guardian has stopped all the alien fun by actually asking Othman about her supposed appointment.

Othman sent the paper an e-mail saying, “It sounds really cool but I have to deny it.” She will be attending a conference next week, but she’ll be talking about how the world deals with “near-Earth objects.”

Though, perhaps just like the alien ambassadors in the movie “Men in Black,” Othman could be keeping the job a secret. No aliens could be reached to confirm or deny this story.

    I am sorry, but I just had to laugh myself silly about this one. We have so many light workers on earth right now, that a single ambassador for ET’s is so ridiculous given our fractured societies here on Earth. Just look at how many ambassadors the USA has around the world right now, not to mention how many countries have sent ambassadors to represent them here at the United Nations complex in our country. Will we be expected to send an ambassador to each and every planet in the Federation? I hope not. I really don’t think that it will work that way once ascension has taken place. This is a yours , mine, and ours attitude dimension right now. To be honest, I am not going to miss it one bit. LOL!!!
