How would one spend money on this issue in a productive way? They have already done the obvious, which is radar and telescopes to track
And if there were ET's coming here (quite a big if), who are not obviously a military threat, do not make contact, but have immensely superior

Consider that if there are ET coming here, they're coming in minor exploration craft.
Like an anthropologist driving into the outback in a Land Cruiser to look at aborigines. We have NO CLUE

still hasn't a clue of a conception of a fleet of ICBM's and precision cluster bombs, or even just a freaking land mine. A single relativistic

Or, as is more likely the case, no ET, in which case you just do your job and ignore the whackos.
And if they are doing it they are not telling us. Why the big secrecy if all these are hoaxes?
