Congressmen point out UFOs in evidence to Congress
Russia has stepped up its investigations into UFOs after pilots reported sightings after test flights, the country's space agency head says.
The head of Russia's Roscosmos space agency, Dmitry Rogozin, has announced that it is to conduct studies into UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) reports based on accounts provided by pilots.
Speaking to the Rossiya-24 news channel, Rogozin said (translated from Russian to English) that the majority of reports were later explained as “atmospheric and other physical phenomena” but he didn’t rule out the possibility that “we might be a subject to some external observation”.
He continued: “If we talk about specific facts of the so-called UFO [sightings], which might have taken place on Earth throughout the history of mankind, which NASA speaks about, I would like to say that these studies have been conducted and are being conducted by our Russian Academy of Sciences among others. The facts are collected and checked.”
