NASA Worries About Space Aliens (!)

NASA's always been willing to ....ahhhh......push.......for increased budget allocations from Congress.

But this might be stretching a bit.

Watching from afar, extraterrestrial beings might view changes in Earth’s atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilisation growing out of control – and take drastic action to keep us from becoming a more serious threat, the researchers explain.

This highly speculative scenario is one of several described by scientists at Nasa and Pennsylvania State University...

Uh-huh.

For that matter, is Penn State still accredited?  Why????

It is not a NASA report. NASA has nothing to do with it:

Shawn Domagal-Goldman, the co-author of the paper who works at NASA, wrote yesterday:

This isn't a "NASA report." It's not work funded by NASA, nor is it work supported by NASA in other ways. It was just a fun paper written by a few friends, one of whom happens to have a NASA affiliation.
