The truth is out there. And the Pentagon want to find it.
Military chiefs in America have announced a new task force to review UFO sightings as the search for alien life continues.
The project, named the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force, will investigate claims of “unexplained aerial phenomena” that “could pose a threat”.
In a statement, the Pentagon said: “The Department of Defense established the UAPTF to improve its understanding of, and gain insight into, the nature and origins of UAPs.
"The mission of the task force is to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security. [Sic]
“The Department of Defense and the military departments take any incursions by unauthorized aircraft into our training ranges or designated airspace very seriously and examine each report.
“This includes examinations of incursions that are initially reported as UAP when the observer cannot immediately identify what he or she is observing.”
The announcement is the latest in an increased effort by the US to investigate unexplained phenomenon.
And it has been welcomed by believers.
Tom Delonge, the former guitarist in pop-punk veterans Blink-182, has become a something of an alien expert having set up research project To The Stars Academy.
In September last year, the US Navy were forced to confirm the existence of military footage released by Delonge showing mystery objects flying through the sky.
Tom said: "A major milestone has been achieved'".
And Christopher Mellon, an advisor to To The Stars, said: "Having the deputy secretary of defence lead the task force is a tremendous sign that Department of Defence is finally taking the issue seriously. "
"Support at this level is invaluable for overcoming bureaucratic resistance to information sharing."
According to CNN, which first reported the launch of the UAP task force, members of Congress and Pentagon officials have long expressed concern over unidentified aircrafts near military installations.
In June the Pentagon released three videos showing encounters between the military and UFO’s.
Senator Marco Rubio told Miami News at the time: “We have things flying over our military bases and places where we are conducting military exercises, and we don't know what it is and it isn't ours, so that's a legitimate question to as.
“Frankly, if it's something from outside this planet, that might actually be better than the fact that we've seen some sort of technological leap on behalf of the Chinese or the Russians or some other adversary.”
And Donald Trump called the footage a “hell of a video”.
It comes after it was reported that a secret organisation within the Pentagon was still investigation UFO's eight years after it's $22 million fuding lapsed.
The project appeared in a US government budget report outlining spending on the nation’s intelligence agencies for 2021.
And several other highly-placed individuals within the US government have alluded to samples of “crashed spacecraft” that are claimed to be in the Pentagon’s possession.
President Trump said that he knows some “very interesting things” about the most famous UFO story of all time, the 1947 Roswell Incident, and promised he would “think about” declassifying secret papers that revealed the truth about the alleged “spacecraft crash.”
