In such a vast universe could Aliens be real? Many people suspect that they are real, but others not so much. There have been many suspected UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) sightings. Many believe that the government had been involved in the concealment that aliens exist, government officials have confirmed theories, and there has been an increase in supporting evidence for such conspiracies.
It is rumored that the government hides crashed UFOs in Area 51. Area 51 is a U.S. air force military installation located at Groom lake in Southern Nevada. There have been many supposed UFO sightings above Area 51. I believe that the government covers up Alien sightings with fake stories. One event occurred in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. In this incident, a spacecraft crashed and the remains, such as objects similar to metal and aluminum debris, were allegedly recovered. The Government covered this up by saying that the debris came from a “downed weather balloon.” An ex-government employee, Ex- Air Force air-man Karl Wolf, furthered the conspiracy of the government hiding extraterrestrial life. Karl was a precision electronics photographic repairman with the top-secret crypto-clearance in the United States Air Force. He was loaned to the lunar orbiter project of NASA at Langley Field. He stated “I was taken into the laboratory where the equipment was malfunctioning…about 30 minutes into the process, he said to me in a very distressed way, ‘By the way, we’ve discovered a base on the backside of the moon. And then he proceeded to put photographs down in front of me”. The former NASA employee emphasized the significance of this discovery. According to Langley Field in these unrevealed photos. Spherical buildings, and towers, were clearly visible. He felt a huge sense of urgency and concern because he felt he was overstepping out of his role as a compartmentalized security. These once unpopular conspiracies are gaining significant attention because of the proof that continues to be discovered.
UFO connoisseurs believe that our explosion in modern technology is the result of the government merging our technology with extraterrestrial technology. In a speech Paul Hellyer, an author and former Canadian Defense Minister, said he believes the USA wasted an opportunity in using alien technology. During the 20th and 21st century we have seen an immense advancement in technology. If alien technology is real, Paul Hellyer believes that it was in the United States’ best interest to introduce and gain public support of alien technology; being honest to the public would speed up the advancement of such technology.
Imagine you are alone in a tiny spacecraft. Suddenly, you hear loud banging outside. This is exactly what happened to Yang Liwei, China’s first man in space, on his maiden flight (first flight of an airborne vehicle) in 2003. In an interview he said he heard something knocking that sounded like a wooden hammer hitting an iron bucket. He naturally got nervous and peeked out the porthole, but didn’t spot anything. He has not been able to figure out what was knocking, not in space or Earth. He tried to recreate the sound but wasn’t successful.
Although some only see aliens as a myth, due to all the advancements in our technology our knowledge on outer space is only growing. Recent research has shown that there are an estimated two- trillion galaxies, the possibility of extraterrestrials only seems to be getting greater.
