There seems to be a recurrent theme with all conspiracy theorists, particularly those in the western world in areas with wide open spaces and a slight element of isolation: UFO and Aliens. Some think that aliens exsist, but they are good at hiding from the government. Others think it is a government conspiracy to cover up aliens. Other even go so far as to accuse government being in cahoots with these aliens or even that said government officials are aliens themselves! Where did this all start?
No Need For Tin Foil Hats!
Many of the conspiracy theorists seem to also believe that these invisible aliens are also able to read our thoughts. In order to counter this, they recommend wearing tin foil hats. This little detail really adds an element of quackery to it all, but lets continue...the tin foil hats are intended to block your brain waves from escaping your head. I guess the brain waves scanners can't get around a thin layer of metal or just scan through your face.
Many of the experimental aircrafts from the 50's and 60's were indeed flying saucers. The overall concept of areodynamics and flight mechanics were perfected during this period, so naturally some of the outlandish designs flew a few times, and then disappeared from service.
Aircraft testing keeps going on, but we all know its an airplane
Planes, Birds and some strange creatures DO fill our skies.
In the past, only birds were capable of flying, except for a few strange creatures such as bats or a sugar glider. So if you saw something flying in the air, it caught your attention. Nowadays, if aliens showed up it would be assumed that they were simply aircraft, as we are so used to seeing planes and choppers in the sky.
