With little conclusive evidence expected to confirm any intergalactic visitations, it remains to be seen whether any earthling minds will change. Military leaders warn that the technology, if not alien, may belong to US adversaries such as Russia or China.
Last August, the Pentagon established the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force to look into observations of unknown flying aircrafts.
The group's job is to "detect, analyse and catalogue" these events, as well as to "gain insight" into the "nature and origins" of UFOs, the Pentagon said.
A classified version of the group's report was provided to lawmakers earlier this month. Unnamed officials told US media that the report found no evidence of alien activity, but also did not rule it out.

The Pentagon is using the public's increasing awareness of UFO's as an opportunity to get a larger budget.
That's what this is all about.
