Discovery of Martians a priority: Obama

August 14th, 2012 by Marc Comments

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?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
