The volcano ash that has been terrorizing Europe for the past week turned out be our savior. According to NASA, an alien fleet of battleships was crossing the North-Atlantic ocean on their way to North America, when they all suddenly crashed in the ocean due to engine failure.
"It's an amazing coincidence that they were crossing there exactly when the volcano is erupting, what a bummer that must be for them, they must have planned this for decades, even centuries" said Jack Hammer, a scientist within NASA. "It took them at least 25 years to reach Earth from the black hole they used to get here, and probably another 25 years to reach their planet from the black hole on the other side. "
According to Jack, there were about 2000 ships that crashed in the ocean, just south of the Faroe Islands. The mothership has also turned back, which indicates that they don't have any more, or at least not enough ships to carry out the attack.
"Maybe they went to get reinforcement, maybe they just canceled their plan completely, we won't know until or if they attack again" But we're safe for at least 50 years.
When asked about the alien invasion and how they will face another attack, US president Obama had this to say:
"We'll let the next generation worry about it"
