The hearing held last week unveiled intriguing claims, particularly from David Grusch, who asserted that the US government had discovered “non-human biologics” at UFO crash sites and had been concealing evidence for years.

This account is just one among many stories in recent years that have contributed to a resurgence of interest in the UFO phenomenon. More people than ever are now engaging in the discussion and becoming actively involved.

A recent Ipsos poll, released last week, revealed that 42 percent of Americans now believe in UFOs, with around 10 percent claiming to have personally witnessed one.

Additional polls conducted by Newsweek and YouGov have shown a significant increase in belief in the phenomenon, rising from a mere 20 percent in 1996 to over 34 percent in 2022.

“This has been huge for the community of general enthusiasts, but also for the people who take UFO research seriously,” said historian Greg Eghigian.

“They have been very emboldened. They feel vindicated by all this. And every new hearing makes them all the more confident that they’ve been on the right track all along.”

It sounds like a story arc from television’s “The X-Files.” And the revelations have sparked a revival in ufology, a passion that had faded along with the Cold War that inspired it.

“Maybe the world is catching up with where the UFO believers have always been,” said Jim Harold, a podcaster who hosts one of the internet’s longest-running shows on the paranormal.

At the recent congressional hearing, more than one lawmaker sounded convinced of a UFO cover-up.

“It is unacceptable to continue to gaslight Americans into thinking this is not happening,” said Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, a Florida Republican.

Others in Congress, including the New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, seemed to view the proceedings more as an opportunity to demand transparency from the Defense Department, UFO cover-up or no.
