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.

Maybe... maybe not. As far as we know none of the extra solar planets discovered so far have any of the really useful features that we have here on Earth.

Obviously if they want the planet they will require very similar conditions to us. That doesn't mean all alien species would of course, but the ones that do may well be interested in the Earth.

Er, hello, anyone home. If they were interested in our planet they would require similar conditions to us. It would be far easier to neutralize us with a fast acting bio-weapon from space without us ever knowing anything about it, let alone firing nuclear weapons at them, than custom build an environment somewhere else.

Why would they go for earth and not the asteroid belt?

They may not have any features that are useful only to life as we know it.

Well, it could be earth, of course. But if there are nearly a trillion planets in this galaxy to mine, how long would it be before it would be earth's turn? I agree with another poster. Getting minerals/ores from an asteroid is easier. In the end, I'm not losing sleep over it.
