     The discovery of alien life or Earth-like planets and the implications to the world was a crucial item on the agenda at the annual World Economic Forum, or WEF, in Davos, Switzerland.

World business leaders and prominent politicians gathered to discuss issues or risks that the world may have to confront in the next decade.

So how did ETs become part of the mix?

In conjunction with the international science journal, Nature, the WEF came up with five "X Factor" items which it refers to as "unheralded dangers that sneak up on us."

One of those risk issues that Earth and its inhabitants may soon face is "the possible social consequences of contact with alien life," according to Nature.

The WEF Global Risks report for 2013 states that "Given the pace of space exploration, it is increasingly conceivable that we may discover the existence of alien life or other planets that could support human life. ... In 10 years' time, we may have evidence not only that Earth is not unique, but also that life exists elsewhere in the universe." . . .
