The study of UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) is engaged in a research discipline called ufology. It is not recognized as a science, rather the opposite. Most scientists consider ufology a pseudoscience.
1. Evidence has survived that in 1663, an unknown flying object was seen above Robozero near Vologda. Witnesses said that it flew low over the lake, making a loud noise. The apparatus would disappear and reappear some time later. Local peasants watched it for an hour and a half. There were even brave men who tried to approach it by boat, but the risky venture was unsuccessful: the people felt the intense heat and hurried away to a safe distance.
2. The term “flying saucers” first appeared in 1947, after Kenneth Arnold, an American business executive and experienced mountain pilot, claimed to have seen several strange flying objects, shaped like saucers, over the Cascade Mountains (Washington state).
3. The Soviet science fiction writer A. P. Kazantsev was interested in questions of visits to our planet by aliens from outer space. He published several works devoted to the mystery of the Tunguska meteorite. The writer suggested that it was not a meteorite, but an interplanetary aircraft, which crashed when trying to land on Earth.
An American couple, Betty and Barney Hill, who lived in Portsmouth, became the first inhabitants of our planet to be abducted by aliens. At least that’s what they claimed. According to Betty and Barney, on September 19, 1961, they were returning from a vacation spent in a neighboring country, Canada. Suddenly, a strange flying object appeared above their car. Later, they could not remember what had happened to them for two hours.
4. In 1967, six “flying saucers” were discovered in the south of England. But experts have determined that they are clearly not of cosmic origin. Inside, the vehicles were filled with a liquid comprising water and flour. Later, it was only a joke - the “saucers” were made by cadets of the Royal Aviation School.
5. Most scientists believe that all rumors and evidence of visits to our planet by representatives of other civilizations are so contradictory and unsubstantiated that they are not worth taking seriously. According to surveys, over 70 percent of U.S. residents believe that reliable information on this subject is simply hidden from them.
