It has long been my opinion that the time between the first atomic tests and the use of them in WW2 was just far too close to the first UFO sightings in modern history. The 2 events seem linked. The fact that public officials and the public at large had a firm belief in these aliens just after the first atomic tests and their use in war seemed related to me in history.
Aliens could not have come from another solar system that quickly. They had to be watching and have been here already but the atomic weapons wheedled by humankind caused them to become active. Human activity in atomic weapons seems to have been a trigger event in the history of this solar system.
