UFO Sightings: Pilots Share Experiences, Claim UFOs Are Real – and Brian Cox agrees
Brian Cox, an outer space expert, insists that believing in UFOs does not put you in the twilight zone.
Because he believes the universe contains at least 200 billion other civilisations.
The rock ‘n’ roll physicist’s claim comes as the US Pentagon prepares to release declassified papers on the existence of UFOs later this month, dubbed the “real-life X-Files.”
“There have to be other civilisations in the universe,” he said in an interview with the Sunday Mirror. I can’t believe we’re the only ones.”
And in a BBC extraterrestrial documentary airing tomorrow night, he says, “We’d all like ET to be real.” We’d like ET to show up. But we don’t want Darth Vader to appear.”
Prof. Cox believes that alien visitors may use robot spacecraft to explore our planet in the same way that NASA is currently doing in the solar system. He asks, “Why send Battlestar Galactica when you could send something the size of an iPhone?”
And he believes that evidence of intelligent life in space is so difficult to find because each galaxy may only have one civilisation.
And Earthlings contribute to the Milky Way’s quota.
Investigated In these troubled times on Earth, even the government is going cosmic.
According to sources, our own Ministry of Defence is planning to reactivate its UFO unit, which was established by Winston Churchill in 1953 and closed due to defense cuts in 2009 after investigating 12,000 sightings.
However, in response to a question from Tory peer Lord Black, defence minister Baroness Goldie stated that the British Government “would not comment prior to the official release by the US Government.”
The documents will detail 120 close encounters by US military pilots investigated by the Pentagon’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, the Office of Naval Intelligence, and the FBI.
They include testimony from US Navy fighter pilot Alex Dietrich, who spoke publicly for the first time last month about her own UFO encounter.
It happened on November 14, 2004, while the lieutenant commander, who is now a professor at the US Naval Academy, was stationed on the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz off the coast of California.
The radar on the ship detected flying objects falling through the sky at an incredible 80,000 feet in less than a second.
Dietrich and Commander David Fravor were scrambled in their F/A-18 jets when they noticed what they described as a 40-foot white Tic Tac.
“It jumped from spot to spot and tumbled around in an unpredictable way,” Dietrich said on the US news show 60 Minutes.
“We’re on the radio with each other the whole time, just losing our minds.”
She spoke up to encourage other pilots to share their stories.
“I wanted to see how close I could get,” Fravor explained. And then it vanished right in front of my eyes. It accelerated like nothing I’d ever seen before.”
Lieutenant Ryan Graves, a former Navy pilot, said his F/A-18F squadron began seeing UFOs hovering over restricted airspace south-east of Virginia Beach in 2014, and again off the coast of Florida the following year.
“You have rotation, you have high altitudes,” he explained. You’ve got thrust. To be honest, I’m not sure what it is.”
Prof. Cox believes that such accounts are not fictitious. “Given what we know, it’s possible that there are only one or two civilisations in a galaxy at any given time,” he says.
“There is undoubtedly one in our galaxy.” It’s one of us.”
“Top Guns don’t impress easily,” said Nick Pope, who led the MoD’s UFO unit from 1991 to 1994. However, we will now see radar data, infrared data, measurement data, and signature intelligence.”
He was dubbed the real-life Fox Mulder, but he claims the work he did, some of which is still classified, was less X-Files and more painstaking hard work.
“There’s footage and records of objects in the skies that we don’t know exactly what they are,” former President Barack Obama told talk show host James Corden. We have no idea how they moved.”
Prof. Cox claims that the 42 radio telescopes operated by SETI – the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence in northern California – have only detected one 72-second signal burst from a constellation 10 light years away on August 15, 1977.
“It came in a wavelength that SETI believes an intelligent civilisation would use,” he says.
“We haven’t heard anything since. That could be due to the fact that intelligent life is extremely rare and you have to be in the right place at the right time to hear it.
“If we had more sensitive detectors, we might be able to pick up more signals.” We haven’t looked hard enough.”
After 20 years of running intelligence operations in Afghanistan and the Middle East, Lue Elizondo joined the Pentagon UAP program in 2008.
“Imagine a technology that can fly at 13,000 miles per hour through air, water, and possibly space,” he said.
“It has no visible signs of propulsion, no wings, no control surfaces, and yet it can defy gravity on Earth.” That is exactly what we are seeing.”
Most of the time, meteors, satellites, weather balloons, or even the planet Venus have been misidentified as flying saucers.
However, Elizondo added that there are some encounters that are unquestionably not errors. Pope estimates that 5% of all sightings he investigated for the MoD UFO unit defied any conventional explanation.
“Incidents involving near-misses between UFOs and commercial aircraft were of particular concern,” he added.
There are several such cases in the files of the Ministry of Defence.”
Prof. Cox came to the conclusion that, while interstellar travel across vast expanses of space is possible, it may not be desirable.
