It sounds like the plot of a bad sci-fi movie, but NASA really is recruiting a priest to help prepare for humanity's contact with aliens.

No, they aren't being launched into space to fight a space demon.

NASA is hiring the help of 24 theologians as part of a plan to work out how the world's different religions would react to news about extraterrestrial life.

Amongst them is British clergyman Reverend Dr Andrew Davison, a theologian at the University of Cambridge who also holds a doctorate in biochemistry from the rival University of Oxford.

The Collins dictionary says: "A theologian is someone who studies the nature of God, religion, and religious beliefs."

Why is NASA hiring religious experts now?

The reason NASA is hiring the experts now is because of advances in humanity's efforts to find life in the great unknown.

A range of new missions is expected to further our understanding of space, including the James Webb Telescope, which is due to launch on Christmas Eve. Additionally, the European Space Agency's Rosiland Franklin rover, built in Stevenage, takes off next year.

The Rosiland Franklin will drill into Mars' surface looking for fossilized microbes in a direct effort to detect traces of life.

Meanwhile, scientists in Cardiff have indicated that ammonia found in Venus's atmosphere could potentially have been put there by living organisms.

The NASA-sponsored scheme was held at the Centre for Theological Inquiry at Princeton University in New Jersey to tackle questions about how life from another planet may impact thinking about gods and creation.

Rev Dr Davison believes the prospect of finding a life that's out of this world is becoming more and more likely.

In Davison's book, Astrobiology and Christian Doctrine, he asks questions about whether God could have created life elsewhere in the universe. Or, could he have sent a saviour to die for the sins of alien species?
