Look, Up in the Sky... Happy 60th Anniversary

July 2nd, 1947 -- the phenomenon of "flying saucers" got its big push when something crashed in the desert near the military base in Roswell NM. We are still tracking those strange incidents 60 years later.

We know that there is more to this life and so we keep searching, mainly in the wrong places...

This part about the test dummies struck a nerve in me as I was born in Roswell during these dummy sitings...

These tests ran from 1954 to 1959 in New Mexico, and the U.S. government suggested that sightings of these dummies might have been the root of stories about humanoid aliens, with people mistaking the dates after so many years, and erroneously linking what they'd seen with the 1947 story of a UFO crash.
But we got to ask ourselves...

So what is it about UFOs that continues to excite our imaginations? To some people, the subject has become almost a religion and perhaps that gets to the heart of it. Those who study the subject are on a quest not just for the truth, but for meaning. It's a search for the answer to one of the most fundamental questions we can ask - are we alone?
