Germany has no plan in the event of ET contact

The German government has 'no plans or protocol' to deal with the possibility of contact with extraterrestrials.
It might be an unlikely scenario, but if a delegation from another world did happen to arrive at our planet with the intention of establishing contact with us, how would world governments respond ?

According to a recent report, one country that doesn't seem to be prepared is Germany.

In response to a recent query on the matter, the Ministry of Economics noted that such an event was "extremely unlikely according to current scientific knowledge" and stated that "concrete cases that could have been the subject of bilateral or multilateral talks with other states are not known."

While it remains unclear exactly how different countries would react to such an event, there is evidence to suggest that mankind as a whole may actually be quite happy about it.

In a recent study presented by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, it was determined that around half of all Americans and Western Europeans believed that Earth had already been visited by extraterrestrials.

"If we came face-to-face with life outside of Earth, we would actually be pretty upbeat about it," said study author Michael Varnum of Arizona State University.

People mine for coal because they need coal and they mine where it is cheapest and easiest to access. So that brings us back to my original question, what are there on Earth that is easier to access here, rather than elsewhere ?

Like I said it's easier to mine asteroids and run a ram scoop through a nebula. Space is also full of free floating hydrocarbons ( i.e. oil). Why invade for common substances?

I have asked this question on many occasions and, like in this thread, no one seems to be able to give a good answer. I can recommend this Youtube channel if you are interested in aliens and space in general: This video is particularly relevant for this discussion:

I don't know. I've never been to another planet elsewhere in the galaxy and studied its natural resources. I also don't understand your logic. If there is an alien race just travelling around the galaxy, from planet to planet, takingtheir natural resources then they MUST go to planets. I can't see why one of those planets can never be Earth.

Why MUST they go to planets ? All of the elements on Earth are also available on other planets, moons, asteroids and comets. As Piney wrote you could also build a ramscoop to pick up elements floating around in space. Do you not agree that a civilisation that is suffiently advanced to be able to build interstellar spaceships would also be able to mine in space ? Using the resources I just mentioned,you could built space colonies with millions of times the area of the Earth, so why would they wan't a small planet that most likely wouldn't even have suitable living conditions for them ?

I've seen that one. Science fiction is filled with stupid aliens. I ahve no problem with fiction being like that, in fact I like science fiction, but people thinking that real life is like Scifi is kinda funny to me.

If the aliens are smart, they'd take a look at all the fantastic wonderful world shattering weapons there are on Earth and think again about invading, until they can come back with all the Earth shattering weapons that they have and pulverize everything except what they want in the first place, I bet they come for the fried chicken, its the best in any Galaxy ~
