Aliens & UFOs
The word alien means something or someone "not from here". In astrobiology and in popular culture, alien refers to a living organism that originated beyond the environs of the earth.
Despite (or perhaps because of) the fact that there has never been any indisputable proof of alien life, aliens hold a huge public interest. A vast amount of data has been collected concerning alien sightings. Alien-related publishing is a sizeable industry.
Common areas of interest to alien investigators include:
- UFOs: Sightings and close encounters
- Alien abduction
- Ancient Astronauts
- Alien telepathy
- Signs of aliens in space, on the Moon or other planets
