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...


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.
