What is the name of the star, what constellation is the star in that these planets circle that your alien friends come from. Is it a binary system, what class star is it, how old is the star. Ask them what means of propulsion took them from there to here. What sort of technological advancements in their science allowed them to travel throughout the heavens. How did they find our planet in a vast field of billions of stars. They must have incredible telescopic technology in order to see a small planet so close to a star from 140 lys away, find out what sort of telescopes they use, are they light telescopes, x-ray, gamma-ray, do they use mirrors or radio waves? Or some other unknown means. Additionally, after they located our planets system, how did they know a race of intelligent beings existed here. Ask them what the atomspheric composition of their planet is. What sort of Gs do they experience of their planet, or how many times greater or less pressure exists on their planet, compared to our own. What were their mechanisms of evolution. What sort of life forms exist on their planet. What manner of creatures did their kind evolve with, and how did that co-existence shape their race. What is their procreation like, do they have 2 sexes, 3 or more sexes, or are they hemaphroditic. are they bipedal, do they eat and digest food, are their eyes front set or side set, what color is their skin? Do they have some manner of brain analogous to our own, if so, is it in their head, if not where? Or is this race of aliens simply a Hollywood carictature of our own race, only with grey skin, big bludgey black eyes, enlogated arms and an oversized head,. I would doubt that very much, but even so, ask to what circumstances led to those features in them. As we as humans are very aware of our own evolution from lesser primates, inquire to your aliens friends about their evolutionary history in that same manner.
Now you have obviously talked to and met these aliens, so im sure it would not be hard to get the answer to these questions. These are some of most obvious questions to ask ANY race of aliens. However, if you failed to ask these questions and do not have anymore oppourtunities to ask anymore, you wasted one of the greatest moments in this planets history. However, i do not believe you have actually met any aliens, as you claim, so a failure to answer these questions in a thurough, complete and above all scientifically accurate manner will tell me you have had no such contact with aliens., because any aliens that have visited this planet would be able to answer these questions very simply, without even thinking, just as we could if we visited another planet.
