MOSCOW – Russian scientists predict alien encounters on earth by January 8th, 2012.

Russian scientists released a report yesterday that said they expect humans to encounter aliens on earth by the beginning of 2012.

“The genesis of life is as inevitable as the formation of atoms …  Alien life exists on other planets AND it exists on our planes,” said Andrei Yanstein, director of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Applied Astronomy Institute, according to the Interfax news agency.

“We have developed a technology that will allow humans to identify the aliens among us,” said Yanstein.  He would not elaborate on the technology that allows to do this, but he did say that the Russians were “way out ahead of the Americans on this one.”

Yanstein said that aliens have different color skin, “which may be transparent at times.”   He explained that aliens have been increasing in numbers over the last 15 months.

“This correlates to the ongoing alien invasion,” said Professor John Malley of the UN Panel on Extraterrestrials.  “Aliens have been invading our planet since February of 2009, with an increased number in October of 2010 and now… the full invasion is under way.  Humans must prepare.”

The UN said that it will be coordinating plans for dealing with extraterrestrials – and at this point they can not guarantee that they will be friendly.  “It all depends on how humans react to them.  If we are kind and welcoming, we can co-exist.  If are afraid and start attacking – there will be an all out alien war.  And we will lose,” said Malley.

Yanstein went on to says that 10% of the known planets circling suns in the galaxy resemble Earth and most of them have life forms similar to humans.

If water can be found there, then so can life, he said, adding that aliens would most likely resemble humans with two arms, two legs and a head.

Richard Coolidge, an astrobiologist at the US space agency’s Marshall space flight center in Alabama, agreed with the findings of the Russian report.  “Aliens are here, and they are making themselves known,” said Coolidge.

Asked how the Russians came up with the January 8th date, Yanstein replied, “we spent several years analyzing the data and that is the farthest point possible for the aliens to reveal themselves without being noticed by the naked human eye.”

Writing in the Journal of Cosmology, Hoover claimed that the lack of nitrogen in the samples, which is essential for life on Earth, indicated they are “the remains of extraterrestrial life forms that grew on the parent bodies of the meteorites when liquid water was present, long before the meteorites entered the Earth’s atmosphere.”
