A Vatican astronomer has offered to baptize any extraterrestrials that might come in contact with Earth.

Extraterrestrials may have souls, and Guy Consolmagno, a planetary scientist at the Vatican observatory, says he would baptize an ET if it asked him to. In an interview with The Guardian, Consolmagno explained, “Any entity – no matter how many tentacles it has – has a soul.”

According to Consolmagno, the Pope and the Vatican are keen on science, and they are kept up-to-date on the latest scientific developments by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, of which Stephen Hawking is a member.
