Back in January 25 this year the Royal Society invited the International Academy of Astronautics for a discussion on The detection of extra-terrestrial life and the consequences for science and society. The January conference was seen as preparation for the much anticipated event on ET life at the Royal Academy this coming week (4th October) .
Mrs Othman attended and she indeed talked about neat Earth objects, but she also most importantly she brought up the subject of ET's. A significant amount of her speech was a discussion of the history of when the ET topic was brought up at the United Nations.
She recalls the time when Prime Minister of Grenada called for the UN to study the origins and nature of UFOs and how this effort failed when the Prime Minister wasn't re-elected. She also reminds us of how the UN was involved with the placement plaques on the Voyager spacecraft.
Well contrary to controversy from created by that article in the Times and the backlash with the Guardian article - you now probably know she has not been appointed the UN's official Et officer - but she is a powerful voice on the topic.
The question on everyones mind - as a UN speaker, is she part of the UN's official campaign to get ET disclosure underway?.. before we can say anymore i guess we will all have to wait and find out and listen to what Mrs Othman has to say next week at the Royal Society.
These are indeed interesting times, stay tuned as Realufos keeps you updated as this story develops! Rate this posting:
