Avi Loeb on How We Should Prepare For UFOs and Alien Contact
UFO sightings are on the rise this year, the U.S. government appears to be taking disclosure seriously, and more former intelligence officers are speaking out about UFOs. It begs the question, ‘what do we do if extraterrestrials show up?’
Interest in UFOs and calls for disclosure have shifted from a fringe movement to a more mainstream one. For years, ufologists have demanded full exposure of all alien contact with humans, but what should we actually do if extraterrestrials make themselves known to us on Earth or in space?
That’s the question posed by Harvard Professor of Science Avi Loeb, in his latest article for Scientific American. Professor Loeb, author of “Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth” thinks we should be prepared for an alien arrival.
What We Learned From the Latest Congressional UFO Hearing
The first public UFO hearing on Capitol Hill in more than 50 years was held this past week — here’s what we learned and what was left out…
A historic public hearing this week on Capitol Hill, as the Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation Subcommittee held the first open UFO hearing since 1966. This hearing came after some lawmakers were reportedly not impressed by the classified briefings they had received as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
In his opening statement, Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray, said, “We have seen an increasing number of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft or objects in military-controlled training areas, training ranges, and other designated airspace. Reports of sightings are frequent and continuing.”
He went on to say that one of the reasons they have more reports is their work to destigmatize the idea of reporting UFOs and putting into place a system to report them. Despite there being no major revelations, there were several moments to note in the hearing.
