Is there intelligent life out there?
Ex-Air Force officers say UFOs are the real deal. They claim they were spotted hovering over nuclear missile silos or nuclear weapons storage areas in the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
At the time, the officers say the military urged them not to talk about the incidents.
"At this point in time, I'm a debunker," said Roger Launius, a Senior Curator at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington.
The men believe extraterrestrial beings are interested in the world's nuclear arms race and may be sending humans a message - but not everyone is so sure.
"I always probe pretty hard what kinds of evidence do you have to support this? I have yet to see any," said Launius.
Last week, the United Nations appointed an ambassador for alien affairs. The Malaysian scientist already heads up the U.N. office for outer space affairs and believes that discovering alien life is becoming increasingly certain.
