During question time, she responds to recent British Press reports about the UN taking a role in coordinating an international response to the discovery of extraterrestrial life. While she denied reports of having been appointed the UN’s ambassador to extraterrestrial life, she confirmed that the UN does have in place a coordinating mechanism for responding to the discovery of extraterrestrial life. She also discussed her participating in a recent panel discussion at the Royal Society of London titled: “Extra-terrestrial life and arising political issues for the UN agenda.”
