Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has spoken about the strange UFO videos that the Pentagon has denied in recent years, a very important issue for the population, especially for the American one.
Hadfield is remembered for performing David Bowie’s song ‘Space Oddity’ aboard the International Space Station, and in his passage through a CBC Radio program he had some not very encouraging statements for those who want to believe in the possibility that there is extraterrestrial life in the universe, although he assured that they are looking for it.
A listener, by the name of Byron McDonald, asked about the growing debate in the country about UFO videos that the Pentagon has denied in recent years and about the possibility of extraterrestrials that have visited Earth. In response to this question, astronaut Chris Hadfield has assured that “seeing something in the sky that you don’t understand and immediately concluding that it is intelligent life from another solar system is the height of stupidity and lack of logic”.
He has also acknowledged that he himself has seen “countless things in the sky that I don’t understand” and that it is worth thinking about the existence of extraterrestrial life.
Although Chris Hadfield’s statements on CBC Radio may have disappointed many and have felt like a cold shower to those who want to believe, the astronaut himself has acknowledged that, so far, “we have not found evidence of life anywhere else except on Earth”, but he has assured that “we are looking for it”.
Hadfield understands that the conversation is the order of the day because “it’s intriguing and it’s right on the edge of reality, science fiction and fantasy. So it’s a lot of fun to think about.”
