If E.T. Calls, Let It Go To Voicemail

what do aliens wantEven E.T. knows if it ain’t funded it ain’t.

Astronomers at the SETI Institute said a steep drop in state and federal funds has forced the shutdown of the Allen Telescope Array, a powerful tool in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, an effort scientists refer to as SETI.

However, this is actually good news: aliens would only be coming here for our resources.  If they can make it here, they’d be pretty advanced.

As Blondie told us in Rapture:

And you get in your car and drive real far

And you drive all night and then you see a light

And it comes right down and it lands on the ground

And out comes the man from Mars

And you try to run but he’s got a gun

And he shoots you dead and then he eats your head

And then you’re in the man from Mars

The lesson: SETI should be careful what it asks for.

Will the man from Mars really kill you dead and eat your head?

    Hello fellow space blogger! Excellent post. What if aliens invaded and Earth were able to somehow defeat them with ease? Interesting… anyhow, do stop by our space news site!
