Subject: Royal Society Meeting on Alien Life

The Royal Society is holding a meeting on October 4th and 5th,
entitled Towards a Scientific and Societal Agenda on
Extraterrestrial Life:


This is a follow-up to a meeting held in January and will
discuss issues such as whether we should reply to any message
received from extraterrestrials, who should send such a message
and what it should say.

The meeting is already attracting considerable media attention,
in relation to the issue of who speaks for Planet Earth. This
led to reports that a Malaysian astrophysicist, Dr Mazlan Othman
had been appointed as an "alien ambassador". The story stemmed
from the view that the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs (which
she heads) should play a co-ordinating role in composing any
message to an extraterrestrial civilisation. I set the record
straight on this story in a recent CNN interview:


I shall be attending this meeting, as I attended the previous
one, and discussing the issues with some of those attending.

Best wishes,

Nick Pope
