New York: WORRIED alien hunters have urged NASA to send condoms into space in case randy aliens invade.
The Swedish lobbyists known as the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (RFSU) is pressuring the space agency to send contraception into space as they may come in "handy" if aliens have sex with "some hot earthlings".
The campaigners said in a video directed at NASA: "We know that you guys sometimes send stuff up into space so that whatever life is out there will get an idea of what goes on here on Earth.
"Even though we can't be sure what the aliens' sex organs look like, a condom might always come in handy if they decide to visit earth and find some hot earthlings."
The contraceptive has been dubbed the "Swedish Space Condom" and its purpose is to raise awareness of contraception here on Earth.
RFSU said in a statement accompanying the video: "The condom might look simple, but it is the single contraceptive that offers protection against both unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections.
"More than 225 million people still lack contraceptives worldwide. The shortage is closely interlinked with poverty, norms surrounding sexuality and lack of political efforts.
"Every year almost 300,000 girls and women die due to complications related to pregnancy, delivery or unsafe abortions. More than 1,000,000 humans die from AIDS-related illnesses annually."
