I’m with Carl Sagan: when considering intelligent life elsewhere in the universe, we have to take into account evolution and the extremely long timespans involved. The odds may be against intelligent civilizations arising near enough at the same time and close enough in space to contact each other. We may be millions of years too late or too early for other civilizations.
SPACE.COM – For decades now, eyes and sky have met to witness the buzzing of our world by Unidentified Flying Objects, termed UFOs or simply flying saucers. Extraterrestrials have come a long way to purportedly share the friendly skies with us.
UFOs and alien visitors are part of our culture—a far-out phenomenon when judged against those “low life” wonders Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster.
And after all those years, as the saying goes, UFOs remain a riddle inside a mystery wrapped in an enigma. Why so? For one, the field is fraught with hucksterism. It’s also replete with blurry photos and awful video. But then there are also well-intentioned and puzzled witnesses.
