Home Science Space Space aliens in U.S. and U.K. news, Vatican approves
Several media organizations are reporting in May 2008 about news, past and present, concerning extraterrestrials. Check out what the British government, U.S. astronauts, and the Vatican chief astronomer have to say.



United Kingdom

A British report, released on Wednesday, May 14, 2008, by the National Archives in the United Kingdom is titled “Report of Unusual Aerial Phenomenon.” It contains over 1,000 pages of formerly secret documents about unidentified flying objects (UFOs). (Clicking on the above link will take you to the National Archives "Report.")

The incidents within the Report are from the years between the late 1970s and early 1980s—all from the United Kingdom.

UFO expert David Clarke worked with members of the National Archives to make the Report public. During these years, the British government investigated each UFO report because of concern over possible infiltration of the Russians during the Cold War.

Clarke stated, “The Ministry of Defense doesn't have any evidence that our defenses were breached by alien craft. They never found one, no bits of one. That's all we can say."

United States

In a second story about ETs, U.S. astronauts from the STS-123 mission, which landed in March 2008 from their successful mission to the International Space Station, talked about space aliens at a news conference held in Tokyo, Japan.

NASA mission specialist Mike Foreman stated, “If we push back boundaries far enough, I'm sure eventually we'll find something out there. Maybe not as evolved as we are, but it's hard to believe that there is not life somewhere else in this great universe.”

Japanese astronaut Takao Doi, also a member of the STS-123 crew, added, "Life like us must exist elsewhere in the universe.”

STS-123 commander Dominic Gorie also commented, “As we travel in the space, we don't know what we'll find. That's the beauty of what we do. I hope that someday we'll find what we don't understand.”
