SCIENTISTS are questioning if aliens really exist, a question that has caused debate and controversy among humans for centuries.
The US government’s unclassified report on Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) was released in June 2021 and discussed whether extraterrestrial life had been found.
What are the alien conspiracy theories?
The theory was revealed in the UFO documentary Unacknowledged and claimed Monroe made the threats after having affairs with both then-President John F Kennedy and Bobby Kennedy and was allegedly seeking revenge after they both ended their relationship with her.
In September 2017, it was also reported that Chuck Zukowski and Debbie Ziegelmeyer discovered a “UFO highway” across America.
The brother and sister alien hunters spent years traveling across the US investigating hundreds of UFO sightings and other paranormal occurrences.
The pair believe the 37th latitude line is a kind of UFO or paranormal highway along which extra terrestrial craft enter and exit the earth.
Their theory became the subject of the book titled the 37th Parallel, written by Ben Mezrich.
Chuck told The Sun: “Back in 2006 I was looking at my cattle mutilation investigations – there were huge similarities between them all – most of them were laying on their right side, they’re laying east to west and then I noticed that lots of them were on the 37-degree latitude.

“I called my sister at midnight and I said, ‘Didn’t you have cattle mutilations on the 37-degree latitude in Missouri?’
“And she said, ‘Yes’ and we started looking more into it. We soon realized it wasn’t just cattle mutilations – there were all kind of events.”
He added: “We’re up until 2.30 in the morning going through all these cases and started seeing these amazing patterns.”
Meanwhile, Paul O’Grady revealed he is too terrified to go to sleep in case he wakes up surrounded by aliens.
The 67-year-old presenter even fears extra-terrestrial beings from outer space are watching him after first realizing it when listening to an interview with 80s pop singer Kim Wilde.
How many alien and UFO sightings have there been?
The alien expert said there have been more than 100k recorded UFO sightings in the past 100-plus years.
An alien autopsy video dates back to 1995 with a video of fighter jets that appear to be chasing a UFO over the M5. There are hundreds of additional videos that people have claimed to be proof of alien life.
There’s even a clip of a UFO supposedly attacking a Taliban compound, as well as sightings in Peckham and Warminster.
Most of the videos have been debunked by experts. In the M5 clip, for example, the trucks on highways look like models of real things.
Meanwhile, the Peckham UFOs were “almost certainly Chinese lanterns,” former Ministry of Defence UFO investigator Nick Pope told The Sun.
He added that “true believers wouldn’t be dissuaded” by evidence the videos are fake.
Popstar Peter Andre also claimed to have seen several UFOs on a family trip through the Nevada desert.
The desert is also the site of America’s famous Area 51 – a highly classified military base at the center of alien conspiracy theories due to scores of UFO sightings in the area.
Artist Dave Huggins believes he lost his virginity to a busty alien called Crescent – and has allegedly fathered 60 ‘hybrid’ babies.
Some people even believe this picture of Jesus’ crucifixion – which hangs on the walls of the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral in Georgia – is proof that aliens visited Earth thousands of years ago.
In July 2017, new research was published that suggested “free-floating” earth-sized plants could exist and that some of them may even be able to harbor life.
And at the end of August, alien hunters from the Breakthrough Listen project detected “fast radio bursts” coming from a mysterious cluster of stars – which may have been produced by “extraterrestrial civilizations.”
In October 2017, an Australian woman took a picture of what she believed was a “flying saucer” hovering over the Great Barrier Reef.
Far North Queensland is considered a UFO hotspot, with several sightings of mystery aircraft in the sky over several decades.
A UFO shaped like a tic-tac stalked a US Aircraft carrier for days before vanishing into thin air, according to a Pentagon report which emerged in May 2018.
The object – which could reportedly hover in midair and make itself invisible – bamboozled US Navy fighter pilots during a training exercise in the Pacific Ocean in November 2004.
In July 2018 a secret dossier revealed that British spies spent at least 50 years hunting UFOs in the hope of stealing alien technology.
Can other planets sustain alien life?
The US government released a report in 2021 that would allegedly support the notion that alien lifeforms may exist, but they instead found they were unable to confirm 143 out of 144 reported UFO sightings.
A study by The Astrophysical Journal Letters found there is no evidence to support the theory that there is alien life in our universe.
The other planets that are similar to Earth orbit M dwarf stars and do not have an atmosphere necessary to sustain life.
An M dwarf star, also known as a red dwarf, has a likeness to the sun but with a lower luminosity, they are found to be the smallest and coolest stars.
A planet would need to closely orbit an M dwarf star to be warm enough to host life and researchers have found it is not possible.
“It’s possible this planet’s condition could be a bad sign for planets even further away from this type of star,” Michelle Hill, an astrophysicist at the University of California Riverside and co-author of the study, said in a statement.
“This is something we’ll learn from the James Webb Space Telescope, which will be looking at planets like these.”
However, the new data revealed if a planet is far enough away from an M dwarf star, it may retain an atmosphere,
Scientists hope the James Webb Space Telescope can shed light on our universe and other universes through highly focused images.
The telescope is highly advanced and may provide the information needed to determine if there are, in fact, planets that can sustain life.
“We will see the more distant, more extreme galaxies, where the environmental conditions are very different from what we see in the Milky Way,” Olivia Jones, a JWST scientist at the Royal Observatory in Edinburgh, told Space.com.
“Previously, we could only see stars about 8 times the mass of the sun, she said. “But now we should be able to see the formation of stars about as big as the sun and that process has never been observed before.”
