I'd like to find out what each of us would do, if we were able, having found a habitable planet that is likely to be occupied by unknown advanced creatures. Here is the scenario:

Some time into the future hunger and poverty are distant memories, we have explored and conquered the depths of our oceans and the outer reaches of our solar system and made some fantastic discoveries. Only one remains; proof of life out there.

News soon emerges of a planet much like our own, and not too distant – we could travel to it in less than one lifetime. Indications from the chemical structure of the atmosphere suggest it is inhabited by oxygen-breathing creatures unknown. Our new space telescope has pictured what it thinks are constructed satellites orbiting the planet. This could be the moment mankind has been waiting for.

The technology exists to get there, an army of volunteers await the astronaut induction program, and the world wants answers.

So, Mr/Mrs President, what do we do next?

Any future President would have probably launch a Manifest Destiny should they find intelligent life in other planets.

Ill rephrase it, if everything is allright why settle on a planet somewhere else? You move to survive as a animal if not you become a parasite, like today we move to parasite not survive

Send a probe with two way communication abilities. Sending people would likely not end well. If it takes a lifetime, then by the time the probe reaches and sends info back we could have trained for the mission and what we would encounter. Once the knowledge of the indigenous people is gained and the probe is able to allow our communications and we agree on what will happen next, we make it happen.

I would say something more along the lines of a co-op program for both sides to send "ambassadors" to each others planets.

Kill everyone, take everything, burn whats left.

This would be the most likely scenario, sadly.

Well in answer to your post my first reaction is "why the F*** should Mr or Mrs President decide who does what"?
I want the Earths representative to come from Jamaica or New Zealand or the Outer Hebrides.
If they have constructed satellites in orbit then they are technically advanced and they would have to "talk" to the satellites so we would have discovered them way before we would see them. This then opens the door for "why have we not communicated with them before now"?
Now that depends whether the new species wants to communicate with us or not. It's talk,talk first before physical contact.

A probe is launched, and when it sends back its data it has confirmed that the planet is inhabited with a humanoid race, much like our own. They have communities and advanced infrastructure. The atmosphere is largely identical to ours.

we would probably kill them and /or enslave them, and take all their technology

I didn't say where the president was from, just that he or she was the Earth's president. Their nationality is irrelevant.

We may not have discovered their radio comms if it is not powerful enough, that's assuming they are communicating with radio, it could also be light.

No my name means Star Wars Is Real because some people here mentioned in a few threads about Star Wars being real so I used that as a user name.

On topic:

I forgot to mention that if you watch District 9 that's what happens when humans meet aliens.

Firstly, I would legalize marijuana.

I posted a very similar thread once upon a time and a member gave me a very interesting proposition. He suggested we just observe and don't' make contact at all. The reason being, even though they may SEEM similar or less in advancement level, they could just be a small outpost from a much larger civilization.

I'd feel bad for the Civilization that goes to conquer a small outpost planet of a much larger Galactic Empire.
