If aliens exist, what would the government do? by Tony Garcia

Answer by Tony Garcia:

I answered a similar question, What would the discovery of aliens do to mankind? I’ll post that answer here and hope it suffices.

“Two generations ago, NASA asked the Brookings Institute to study peaceful uses of space exploration. Their report postulated on the public’s reaction if NASA found evidence of extraterrestrial life, like artifacts left on the moon, or even a face-to-face meeting with the aliens. Fearing large-scale panic, the Report suggested the government withhold that information from the public.

At this point in time, I doubt the government’s position has changed from the one the Brookings Institute recommended.”
