June 24, 1947, in the United States (Washington) was recorded in the first UFO UFO reports. Since then, the world has been simmering unspoken debate about what is the UFO myth, a natural phenomenon or is it a proof of the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations.
Ufologists, researchers unidentified flying objects, called a few arguments in favor of a UFO — it is not a myth and not fiction. The well-known UFO researcher Joseph Allen Hynek provides proof in the fact that "the most sensible and clear messages come from eyewitnesses, … are not aware of the problem, but quite frankly puzzled by what he saw. A UFO fanatics or occultists and mystics often send their descriptions. K Besides these disjointed text easily identified and rejected. " In addition, the appearance of a UFO is often confirmed by several witnesses.
UFO witnesses often become the objects of ridicule and risk their own careers, but still agree to promote the investigation of the case. Sometimes witnesses agree to be tested for a lie detector. UFO reports come from, and scientists. Even the skeptical researcher Donald Menzel wrote that he personally observed the glow in the sky and had to admit that UFOs do exist.
Another argument in favor of the existence of UFOs is the similarity of symptoms, doctors have observed the phenomenon of witnesses. Typically, fixed temperature, headache, nausea. Doctors believe that this may be a consequence of exposure. At the same time, there is evidence that people got better from an incurable disease, after a meeting with UFOs. And the 73-year-old Argentine Ventura Maseyrasa that December 30, 1972 saw a UFO over his house, he said, even grown new teeth.
The head of the clinical department of the Moscow Institute of Psychiatry, Yuri Polishchuk wrote in the newspaper "Arguments and Facts" about the cases of recovery of people: "Every time when serious scientists have tried to understand such phenomena, it appears that either the result of illusion, or the result of distorted judgment, or — auto-suggestion, which really cures, can lead to resorption of a benign tumor or scar. This research is understandable. For example, a person had a cyst on some internal organ. He thought that the village "plate" … he was operated on, remove the cyst, stitches remain. When he started doing ultrasound, it was found that the brush is not. "
At the same time, there are a lot of photos and videotapes, which show unidentified objects. Examination confirmed the authenticity of the images, but the image is rarely distinct and qualitative, since the appearance of UFOs always happen unexpectedly. Allen Hynek lists several criteria that define authentic UFO photographs made during the day. First of all, should be "confirmed the reliability of the photographer himself who saw a UFO in the time of shooting." Second, the witness must provide researchers with original negatives and the camera itself, which were taken. And third, you need to get "asseveration photos into a picture and the picture is of belonging to a UFO, and not to something else. Latter condition is not required when the photographic material presented is accompanied by several independent pictures taken preferably from different angles."
An important point in the study of UFOs is the ratio of UFOs and science. On the one hand, many prominent scholars, such as Allen Hynek and Donald Menzel — Professor of Astrophysics. On the other hand, most scientists still do not recognize the possibility of the existence of UFOs as a representative of extraterrestrial civilizations. Hynek wrote: "One summer evening in 1968 in Victoria (British Columbia) held a reception on the occasion of the Astronomical Symposium.'s Large restaurant has gathered more than one hundred astronomers from around the world. Suddenly a man entered the room and announced that he appeared in the sky UFOs. easy laugh was on the tables, but quickly died down and people went back to their conversations. None of the scientists went out to see for the mysterious phenomenon of nature! "
Hynek said that "there are two types of scientists who deny the UFO. The first are scoffers who do not even attempt to deal with some specific cases, observation of the phenomenon. Second type consists of scientists, after checking inclined to accept the reality of UFOs, but only as a a purely psychological phenomenon. position of the second group of scientists still deserves attention, since they have the materials for discussion. views of the first group, in contrast, do not stimulate discussion, because, in her opinion, if there is no phenomenon, there is no discussion of the subject. "
In our country, UFO research has become one of the special programs of the Ministry of Defence. Talked about this a senior fellow of the Polar Geophysical Institute KSC RAS Sergey Chernous, formerly member of the abnormal phenomena of General Physics and Astronomy of the USSR
The surge of interest in UFOs in the Soviet Union took place in the 70's. Then were extremely popular lectures on UFOs, which were read in the institutions, enterprises and even in the army. After the September 20, 1977 was "Petrozavodsk Miracle" (at the end of the night people in the northwestern region of the USSR for a few minutes watching the development of large-scale phenomena of light, "a star with rays of light", "jellyfish", "sky spotlights," and so etc.), a working group was formed with the assistance of various scientists.
So started working program, which operated for 13 years — until 1991. Then three priorities were formulated version possible origin of the UFO: UFO — a product of human activity, UFOs — a manifestation of natural processes on Earth, in the atmosphere and in space, UFO — a manifestation of the extraterrestrial civilizations.
The latest version was adopted only after much debate and solely for the correct approach. The research was conducted in two areas: military and scientific. Interested in the influence of the military UFO vehicles and soldiers. Scientists have focused on the nature of the phenomenon and the possible impact of a UFO on the environment.
The program, launched by the Soviet Union, was the biggest study in the world. Reports were both accidental witnesses, and from meteorologists. Observations were carried out on the entire territory of the USSR and the world ocean. Sergei Chernous says that "the most surprising and interesting was the fact that, despite the Bank of experimental data collected from thousands of observations of the army and civil society organizations have been received no reports of a UFO landing, no contact with the" UFO pilots, "or One of UFO abductions. Apparently, for the period of thirteen years of the project declared a moratorium on aliens visiting Earth.
More serious conclusion that follows from this fact — the failure of the hypothesis of alien origin of UFOs. The vast majority of the phenomena perceived by witnesses as UFOs due to the technical work of the various natural and human events. More than 90% of cases is caused by aircraft, high-altitude balloons, launching and maneuvering space engineering and related experiments. About 9% is the glow from the observed astronomical objects to rare optical phenomena in the atmosphere. "
One theory put forward in the time leading specialist MOD anomalous aerospace phenomena Colonel Plaksina, was that the UFO — a new weapon the United States. Sergei Chernous, however, believed that the USSR could not "miss" the creation of a new American weapons. But he did not rule out that some samples of contemporary American achievements could be born in a laboratory studying UFOs.
An important issue in the study of the UFO phenomenon has been the relationship of researchers to the press. Sometimes in the newspaper includes information that could cause resonance in the world. For example, the article by Chernous leads Vostrukhin "Exactly at 4.10" in the newspaper "Trud" in 1985. "It describes the event that the crews airliner" Tbilisi — Rostov — Tallinn "on the track near Minsk." Looking at his eyes the sky, the co-pilot noticed the top right unblinking big star .. Of spots appeared thin-thin ray of light and fell steeply down to the ground. A beam of light grew, becoming a bright cone of light, there was a second cone, wider, but paler than the first one, then a third — a wide and very bright … What kind of power should this spotlight? .. Now they saw a blinding white dot surrounded by concentric colored circles … white dot flashed, and in its place arose green cloud … "
After the article editors threw letters, and European countries through diplomatic channels made inquiries about the trial in the Soviet Union a new weapon. In the end it turned out that what he had seen the crew really was associated with the testing of weapons, but not in the Minsk area, and farther north, on the White Sea, where testing of ballistic missiles sea basing. This phenomenon is observed in many places in the north-west of the country and even in Finland.
Thus, in the opinion. Sergei Charnavus, currently there is no reliable evidence for the existence of a fact or extraterrestrial UFOs. It is true, that if there was such a fact, in his study would be thrown into a large scientific team.
Back in 2000, the British Ministry of Defence also made a secret report on UFOs, which conclusively proved that earthlings have absolutely nothing to fear. The report is the result of a four-year study called "unidentified aerial phenomena of the UK", and intended to answer the age-old question of ufologists, "Is there anybody there?"
The report of the British Ministry of Defense said that those unidentified phenomena that observe the witnesses may be the effects of meteors.
"A large body of evidence supports the idea that the events (UFOs), almost certainly due, physical, electrical and magnetic phenomena in the atmosphere, mesosphere and ionosphere. They appear under certain weather conditions, the electric charge and there are very rare, which allows observers say their uniqueness, "- the document says.
As for the statements of people that they come into contact with representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations, the report is explained as follows: "The proximity to the plasma field can have a detrimental effect on the mechanisms and even people. Medicine has proven that the local fields of this type can cause reaction in the temporal lobe of the human brain. As a result, the person creating a pretty clear picture of the events that actually did not occur. "
Another reason for the UFO, as stated in the report, are lights of the aircraft, balloons of unusual shapes and even a flock of birds.
However, ufologists claim that all phenomena in the sky, the Defense Ministry report explains. Moreover, ufologists believe the government will always be hidden from the people the facts about UFOs, because they are just afraid to admit the existence of that which is not subject to them.
