Initially, the program was financed 10 years ago in the amount of $ 22 million by order of Senator Harry Reid, which was entrusted to the aerospace firm, headed by Robert Bigelow, a close friend of the senator.The fact is that Bigelow is convinced of regular visits to Earth alien UFO. Financing of programs s stopped in 2012, but it is considered to be in effect to this day.
Many details of the program are still classified. And yet, often in the public domain you can see video about meetings of US Air Force aircraft with mysterious objects of unknown origin, for example, with flying objects moving in airspace at high speed without the “usual” engine.
Almost nothing is known about the results obtained during the implementation of the program – but this does not mean that officials expected contact with the aliens. Reid said that “very impressive, unusual” discoveries were made in 2009, and during one of the briefings he also claimed that the United States was not currently able to protect itself from UFOs.
Available reports indicate that there are no intelligible explanations regarding the origin of the detected objects. Former program manager Luis Elizondo, in turn, noted that the observed objects do not belong to any of the countries.
Most likely, the program will not continue: the theory of UFOs have too many skeptics who consider research in this area a hopeless and waste of money. However, while there is a mystery, there are always those who want to solve it.
