If We Discover Aliens, What's Our Protocol For Making Contact?
by Natalie Wolchover

It is conceivable that humans could someday discover aliens. We
scour the cosmos looking for their radio signals, and though
we're not capable of interstellar space travel, it is remotely
possible that we could find what we're looking for right here in
our solar system.

Life could theoretically exist on Mars, or on Europa, a moon of
Jupiter, which appears to have an underground ocean. It's even
possible (though highly unlikely) that these nearby life forms
could be sentient. "It is consistent with current human
exploration of the solar system that intelligent beings could
have evolved in the deep oceans of Europa," said Jacob Haqq-
Misra, an astronomer at Pennsylvania State University.

Another possibility, Haqq-Misra said, is that "intelligent
extraterrestrial beings have traveled from a distant star system
and taken up residence in the solar system. They might be living
in an underground base on Mars or the moon, or they could be
residing in the asteroid belt (or any number of other plausible,
albeit unlikely, options)."

Considering these scenarios, what would we do if we encountered
an alien race? As it turns out, the question has garnered
considerable academic thought since the first reported flying
saucer sighting in 1947, not just as an inquiry in human
psychology, but also as a way of contemplating what aliens might
do if they ever found us.
