President Barack Obama has said that the discovery of Martians by NASA’s Curiosity probe would be his top priority.
Speaking with jubilant scientists after the landing on Mars last week, the President revealed that the first question he is being asked about the mission is whether Martians have already been found.
He told the NASA team: “If, in fact, you do make contact with Martians, please let me know right away. I’ve got a lot of other things on my plate, but I suspect that that would go to the top of the list, even if they’re just microbes.”
Some would say the US government already knows there are aliens out there. Do you want to believe?
