Quote: "But some experts are questioning the space agency's wisdom in advertising mankind's position in the universe - and claim that it could attract unfriendly aliens."

I question the use of the word "experts" in that sentence.

I think there's aliens out there but the chances of ever meeting are zero.

Can I suggest the 'Scientists' transmit The Eurovision Song Contest as a counter measure.

If aliens have been receiving radio and TV broadcasts since the 1920s then it's no wonder we've heard nothing from them. I bet they haven't paid their TV licence.

I agree, and I'd also put forward that these scientist's who specialise in this field are for the majority, merely theorists, or theorists with qualifications, i.e. the young, dare I say naive, scientists.
