The boom of the first UFO sighting is accompanied by the increasing interest of scientists and researchers in possible life beyond earth. The space missions launched on Mars only indicates how desperate humans are in finding even a small proof that extraterrestrials are real. When NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) invaded the Martian planet, the emergence of reported sightings of strange things relevant to aliens in the red planet’s skies seemed too much to handle. To add to that, the successful landing of rover Curiosity was followed by several claims that the Gale crater landing site was surrounded by unidentified flying objects. In fact, photos from MSL are seen to have strange formations that were classified as unidentified, but were later concluded to be caused by poor camera pixels.
Furthermore, the moon landing of Apollo 11 in 1969 was also surrounded a number of intended UFO sightings. However, neither famous Neil Armstrong nor one of the NASA officials confirmed such allegations. Life has been filled with fictional stories and this has truly influenced how humans see potential extraterrestrial existence.
