Are we alone in the universe ? A categorical answer is not for now. US intelligence said Friday, June 25 in a long-awaited report that there was no evidence of the existence of extraterrestrials. However, it is also impossible to say otherwise.

More than 140 incidents observed by military pilots, which occurred between 2004 and 2021, could not be explained, but all the information collected remains “largely inconclusive”. There is no “probably not a single explanation” to these phenomena, ensures this report published by the services of the national director of intelligence. “We currently do not have enough information in our databases to attribute these incidents to specific causes”, they add.

Three videos, one dating from November 2004 and two others from January 2015, published last year by the Pentagon have aroused curiosity about these phenomena. After decades of secrecy, Congress ordered the executive to brief the general public on the activities of the Pentagon unit responsible for studying them. The US military and intelligence are mainly trying to determine whether these phenomena can be linked to threats against the United States.

China and Russia are particularly in the sights, with both countries carrying out tests hypersonic technologies, moving at 10 or even 20 times the speed of sound. “This report which does not bring a clear conclusion is only the beginning of efforts to explain what causes risks to aviation in many parts of the country and the world”, said Mark Warner, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
