Of course I could be wrong and perhaps intelligent life from the stars really does traverse massive distances just to anal probe Billy Bob and Mary Sue and leave no physical evidence - I must remain sceptical.

The Robertson Panel was a committee commissioned by the Central Intelligence Agency in 1952 in response to widespread reports of unidentified flying objects, especially in the Washington, D.C. area. The panel was briefed on U.S. military activities and intelligence; hence the report was originally classified Secret.
Apart from Robertson, the panel included: ·
Luis Alvarez,, physicist, radar expert (and later, a Nobel Prize recipient); ·
Frederick C. Durant, missile expert; ·
Samuel Abraham Goudsmit, Brookhaven National Laboratories nuclear physicist ·
Thornton Page, astrophysicist, radar expert, deputy director of Johns Hopkins Operations Research Office; ·
Lloyd Berkner, physicist, and J. Allen Hynek, astronomer, were associate panel members.
