PUTRAJAYA: Only weeks after launching Malaysia’s very own National Space Policy, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak welcomed the news of NASA’s discovery of 7 earth-like planets capable of sustaining alien life.
“The Prime Minister is a visionary statesman,” said celestial strengthening ties analyst, Abdullah bin Baker, “he’s already anticipating a time when we need to travel beyond our solar system once Earth’s financial resources are depleted.”
“Malaysia will need to somehow refinance our loans from China by 2030. The PM is already planning a trade delegation 40 light years away to the TRAPPIST-1 dwarf star to see if the aliens living in the worlds orbiting it will lend us money!”
The PM has promised no sovereignty issues from the interstellar refinancing deal noting we would have decades to repay our extraterrestrial overlords before they take possession of Malaysia.
