With aircraft of extraterrestrial origin. The concept

0 Comment

With multiple definitions of Unidentified Flying Objects the topic has been debatable and a mystery to date. Multiple theories have come and gone and researchers, scientists, and classified journals have been written on the topic without any concrete results. It seems that when humans begin to think that we are close to the truth, we find ourselves far from the reality.  The closest definition of UFO could be defined as Unidentified Flying Object in the sky which are not recognized or identified as a known object. However, the term is widely used in popular culture to refer more specifically to supposed observations of aircraft of extraterrestrial origin.

The concept of Unidentified objects may have been with us for a long time. However, the term “UFO”  was coined in 1953 by the United States Air Force (USAF) to serve as a catch-all for all such reports. In its initial definition, the USAF stated that a “UFOB” was “any airborne object which by performance, aerodynamic characteristics, or unusual features, does not conform to any presently known aircraft or missile type, or which cannot be positively identified as a familiar object” (Javee, 2017). According to the article written by Ralph Blumenthal, the term was initially restricted to that fraction of cases which remained unidentified after investigation, as the USAF was interested in potential national security reasons and/or technical aspects.

The acronym “UFO” itself has been a disputable terminology, till the point a clarification by Captain Edward J Ruppelt was published stating that ” the term ‘flying saucer’ is misleading when applied to objects of every conceivable shape and performance” (Ruppelt, 1952). His research not only aided the research of the United State Air Force but also helped the general public to place any distinguished objects in the sky by the name of Unidentified flying objects.    

Global disclosure of the UFO phenomenon is imminent. Government agencies of various countries are gradually getting convinced with the fact that sharing the information about UFO encounters is better for the safety of human beings. In 1998, Spain became the first nation in Europe to open its classified UFO files to researchers. In March 2007, France declassified and disclosed its UFO files and 3 months later England shared their reports too. Since then all nations have been following the footsteps of Spain and sharing the information with the officially established UFO Research Committees which are kept secret from the local media.

No culture or country has been left unaware of the concept of UFO. Even with an unconfirmed presence in the world, it drew remarkable attention of the scientists and physicists across the globe. On the other hand, the concept of UFO has been one of the most entertaining subjects for millennials. In Mid 90s there were a lot of fictional movies made and books published. Till date, there is a huge fan base of UFO-based science fiction comics and movies. Some of the most successful movies

History of UFO has been full of doubts and mysteries. The Government had to decide whether they were ready to dedicate lot of money/time/labor on the subject of studying the ‘UFO’. There were many studies that happened into the field of analyzing the theory of unexplained from which “Project Blue Book” was the biggest and the last major government funded research project. Project Blue Book was one of the systematic studies of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) conducted by the United States Air Force. It started in 1952, and it was the third study of its kind (the first two were projects Sign (1947) and Grudge (1949)). A termination order was given for the study in December 1969, and all activity under its auspices ceased in January 1970.

Thousands of UFO reports were collected, analyzed and filed. As the result of the Condon Report (1968), which concluded there was nothing anomalous about UFOs, Project Blue Book was ordered shut down in December 1969 and the Air Force continues to provide the following summary of its investigations:

1.     No UFO reported, investigated and evaluated by the Air Force was ever an indication of threat to our national security;

2.     There was no evidence submitted to or discovered by the Air Force that sightings categorized as “unidentified” represented technological developments or principles beyond the range of modern scientific knowledge; and

3.     There was no evidence indicating that sightings categorized as “unidentified” were extraterrestrial vehicles.

By the time Project Blue Book ended, it had collected 12,618 UFO reports, and concluded that most of them were misidentifications of natural phenomena (clouds, stars, etc.) or conventional aircraft. According to the National Reconnaissance Office a number of the reports could be explained by flights of the formerly secret reconnaissance planes U-2 and A-12. A small percentage of UFO reports were classified as unexplained, even after stringent analysis. The UFO reports were archived and are available under the Freedom of Information Act, but names and other personal information of all witnesses have been redacted.

Even after the case being shut by the USA UFO research institute and the funding was stop considering the UFO was not harmful to the national security. Multiple events have been reported from different corner of the world with no final results shared with the public. One of the major UFO sightings that took the attention of media was the first abduction case-   The Travis Walton abduction case (1975) The movie Fire in the Sky (1993) was based on this event, but greatly embellished the original account..

The concept of UFO has influenced a large number of Science fictional books and movies and till now continue to aid writers and directors to grasp the attention of viewers from all across the globe. The impact of the UFO It has been  said to be one of the most entertained subject of discussion among millennials and the subject will always remain a subject of interest through generations.

The un-solved mystery has always captured human interests for which there is a special course being designed to study the unidentified – UFOLOGY

Ufology has generally not been embraced by academia as a scientific field of study,1516 even though UFOs were, during the late 1940s and early 1950s, the subject of large-scale scientific studies. The lack of acceptance of ufology by academia as a field of study means that people can claim to be “UFO researchers”, without the sorts of scientific consensus building and, in many cases peer review, that otherwise shape and influence scientific paradigms. Even among scientifically inclined UFO research efforts, data collecting is often done by amateur investigators.

When it comes to the study of UFOlogy there are a few organizations which include the Center for UFO studies, the mutual UFO network and the national investigations committee on aerial phenomena. There is still an overall lack of institutional scientific study but many of these organizations bind together academic researchers from engineering backgrounds, sociology and psychology backgrounds as well. With large teams of professionals looking into UFO sightings, meeting with first-hand account witnesses and reviewing the data with each encounter we are getting closer to some answers with some of the most odd and unexplained cases.

We humans have developed the technology which was not present at the time of Blue Bird Project but now we are very technologically advanced and the pace we are headed at very soon the mystery of UFOs will be solved. With huge projects like Space X many defense companies have shown keen interest in the field of exploring the unexplored space and stars. Maybe the truth is not far from us and we are on the verge of discovering something big or humans have already established contact with the extra terrestrial or there is no alien species.
