The subject of UFOs has been hotly contested since the famous Roswell incident of 1947, in which a flying disc-shaped object crashed at a ranch in Roswell, New Mexico. The odd aircraft - no claims are made about their possible origins or makeup - appear to hover briefly before sprinting away at speeds that elicit gasps and shouts from the pilots.

Mr. Reid, who retired from Congress this year, said he was proud of the program. "In the end, however, I couldn't carry out that mission, because the department - which was understandably overstretched - couldn't give it the resources that the mounting evidence deserved".
There, between 2007 and 2012, a team of researchers working with experts in Nevada investigated reports of aliens and unusual sightings over the American skies.
