The Ministry of National Defense was worried that these represent some advanced Soviet technology is completely reasonable, so the Air Force launched Project Sign and Project Grudge in 1947 and 1948 respectively to study UFO sightings among its soldiers.The longest such investigation is the Blue Book Project, which lasted from 1952 to 1969, and was published in public Condon Report, And concluded that the research on UFOs is unlikely to generate much interest.
Dorsch said that each of these documents shows that the vast majority of these sightings can be traced to some common objects-birds, airplanes or planets. However, a small part of the encounter remains unknown, and the military vowed to continue the investigation. True believers view these unknowns as potential evidence of visitors from other places.
“The possibility of this technology being adopted by Russia or China is very small,” Semivan said of the objects captured in naval videos released in recent years. “These things have been circulating since the 1940s. If the Russians had this technology at the time, they would have won the Cold War.”
In his and Delonger’s opinion, there are actually only three options that can explain what people have discovered over the years: extraterrestrial, interdimensional, and extraterrestrial, that is, members of the lost human civilization on earth, à la Atlante S.
“Either there is a more advanced team, we never knew they were here,” Delonge said. “Or they come in and out within the range we can perceive, and use machines to do this.”
But before rushing into this fantasy, consider another group of astronomical observers, astronomers, who rarely report seeing unknown aerial phenomena. “If a UFO turns out to be an alien spacecraft, no one will be happier than an astronomer,” said Andrew Fraknoi, a retired astronomer and member of the CSI Committee. “Imagine talking about astronomy with creatures that travel through the stars.”
When speaking in public, Flacnoy likes to play with the audience, telling them that he believes in UFOs. “I believe there are objects that ordinary people cannot recognize,” he clarified. “The question is: can we turn a UFO into an IFO, a recognized flying object?”
In his opinion, the existence of extraterrestrial life is very likely, and may even be intelligent creatures.Many researchers hope to use probes to investigate possible habitable places in our solar system Like Mars Or Jupiter’s moon Europe, Or grab A strange gas On a distant planet, this may indicate that it is a living world, as in the recent controversial paper about possibility Phosphine on Venus.
As a member of the board of directors of the SETI Institute, Fraknoy also believes that our observatory may one day be unexpected Eavesdrop on alien transmission. But each of these scenes is far from our idea of being visited by the little green man.
The current enthusiasm for UFOs can be traced back to “Star Trek” in many ways. In 2017, they, along with New York Times, Released mysterious U.S. Navy videos designed to capture strange aerial objects, helping to prompt the U.S. military to officially confirm that these videos are real.Although there are many people Trying to debunk Such lenses, other high-profile publications, including New Yorker, Then published a gullible alien article, which led members of Congress to include a provision in their December 2020 comprehensive spending and coronavirus relief legislation requiring the Department of Defense to submit a UFO report within six months.
