IF Kazakhstan is building an embassy for the use of aliens, it suggests that they know what sort of requirements these aliens will have:
Do they breathe our air
How big are they
How big will their craft be - the landing strip will have to be big enough to accommodate them
What sort of environment they will need
It would be interesting to get hold of the plans for this embassy.
Kazakhstan is establishing as a country with the most impressive architectural designs. Its capital, Astana, is the home of two astonishing buildings - the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation, and the Khan Shatyry Entertainment Center. Now, the financial capital and largest city called Almaty will feature a design signed by Sir Norman Foster, a renowned British architect.
The structure will consist of two towers and will be called Almaty Financial District Fosters Towers and will feature 48-stories. The twin towers will be completed in 2009 and with their 709 feet, will be the tallest buildings in Kazakhstan. Almaty Financial District Fosters Tower will provide space for offices, residential apartments and retail on lower stories.
The facades of the towers will be covered in glass and at the top of the tower you will find gardens destined as a relaxation space. For the moment there aren’t many information about the towers, but reports say that the Almaty Towers will be environmental friendly.

I wonder if the world will go nuts when Kazakhstan tries to launch a "satellite" into orbit with a sign on it pointing to the Intergalactic Embassy?

Either they know something we don't or they are hoping to drum up some tourist dollars or they have been smoking whacky tobaccie again... or all three.
Personally while I believe that the universe it teeming with life I also understand that the science is against interstellar travel...
... besides that the risk of the exchange of pathogens it just too great for both us and them for any casual contact...
and given how aggressive the human race is... if I were an alien I would give this place a wide berth.
So I'm betting that they are after tourist dollars.
