Astronomer reveals THESE secret plans are in place for alien landing | UK | News
Governments do have secret plans in place for the possibility of an alien landing, confirmed an astronomer.
However, these plans would crumble if an alien landing ever actually happened.
Speaking to LBC, Eddie Mair revealed: “They have plans, probably not great plans for what they would do, or if an astronomer with a telescope picks up a single from a distance star that it is artificial in someway.
“There are plans to deal with that, to tell the appropriate authorities like the United Nations, the leaders of the world and prepare the way to explain it to the public.
“But, all those plans would fall to bits, instantly somebody detected something because they’re just not going to work.”
Speaking on a new study that recently found a huge boulder-like object floating through space could be a spaceship, the astronomer said: “Astronomers now think there could be many of these objects, perhaps even captured in our solar system at the time and we haven’t seen them.
“Or, I cannot bring myself to rule out and say this is 100 percent an asteroid or a comet from afar, I cannot totally say the case that even though there’s a slim, slim, slim chance, I cannot totally say it’s not a spaceship.”
Astronomers at Harvard's Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics Shmuel Bialy and Abraham Loeb have said that 'Oumuamua, a mysterious object that flew close to the sun, may have been sent by aliens to survey other galaxies.

Originally, scientists reviewed data gathered by the Pan-STARRS-1 survey on 'Oumuamua's closest flight to the sun in September 2017 and took notice that the object gained speed instead of slowing down.
The scientists said this was caused by the rock outgassing, releasing gas that was stuck inside it.
Officials later classified it as a comet.
However, Mr Bialy and Mr Loeb disagree with this explanation an argue that outgassing would have sent it into a spin which was something that had not been observed.
Rather, they argue 'Oumuamua could have been a spacecraft which relies on radiation as a source of power sent to find other signs of life in other galaxies.
Speaking with Universe Today, Mr Loeb said: "We explain the excess acceleration of ‘Oumuamua away from the sun as the result of the force that the sunlight exerts on its surface.
"For this force to explain measured excess acceleration, the object needs to be extremely thin, of order a fraction of a millimetre in thickness but tens of meters in size.
"This makes the object lightweight for its surface area and allows it to act as a light sail.
"Its origin could be either natural or artificial."
