It seems that other nations have been engaging in cover-ups of UFO (Unidentified Flying Objects) sightings over the years along with the United States.
The Daily Mail (U.K.) has an interesting article on this.
It begins with:
Are we alone? Unfortunately, neither of the answers feel satisfactory.
To be alone in this vast universe is a lonely prospect.
On the other hand, if we are not alone and there is someone or something more powerful out there, that too is terrifying.
As a NASA research scientist and now a professor of physics, I attended the 2002 NASA Contact Conference, which focused on serious speculation about extraterrestrials.
During the meeting a concerned participant said loudly in a sinister tone, 'You have absolutely no idea what is out there!'
The silence was palpable as the truth of this statement sunk in.
Humans are fearful of extraterrestrials visiting Earth. Perhaps fortunately, the distances between the stars are prohibitively vast.
At least this is what we novices, who are just learning to travel into space, tell ourselves.
By the way, according to the article, July 2 is World UFO Day (celebrate accordingly?). Also, the annual Roswell UFO Festival begins July 6.
