This week the government of the UK began releasing years worth of research officially done into UFOs. The focus of the research was to determine if the reported UFO was a threat to the security of the UK. Once determined not to be one, the research was dropped. Of course, this leaves many unanswered questions – specifically what exactly was the phenomena witnessed, if not a threat?
The documents contain records dating from around 1950 and are available online in The National Archives. Most records prior to 1962 were destroyed due to the cost of archiving the physical records, sadly. The information is being transferred from the Ministry of Defense to the National Archives over a four year period with this being the first dump – so there is more to come.
