Most of us, though it is interesting to conspire, have had our own reservations in believing the concept of extra-terrestrial beings and the coming of saucers and aliens. However, to make sure that our earth is safe from internal and external invasion people in the respective fields have analyzed as to the different things and objects that are present on and around the earth. So we are here to see about one such term, and it is the UFO. Let us get to it.
What is UFO?
UFO is one of the most widely prevalent terms, and we are well aware of it. It stands for Unidentified Flying Objects. The term was first coined in the American military base as an effort to make sure that anything that flies in the air is from the earth and belongs to the known category of things. Initially, in the early 1900s, people obviously didn’t feel the external or alien threats. It was wartime, and the government felt the need for measuring their safety and security all the time. That is why they began classifying things under the head the term UFO.
Anything was flying or moving within the atmosphere has to belong to their list of missiles or objects. If anything that didn’t fit into the list, it was listed as Unidentified Flying Object. So there are only two possibilities, either it should arise out of a natural phenomenon, or it should be known object anything that flies, until being identified, will be known by the term UFO.
This practice that started out in the US slowly spread out to other countries as well, and the term UFO became quite popular. Now that all of us are aware of the term, a term that strictly belonged to the US military bases has now been out to common use.
UFO – today:
However today we feel that the term UFO is much broader or to be more specific it has taken a global shape. The global countries aren’t into war today, so nobody is living in the fear of unknown war objects and missiles. However, all of us are into science war. We are discovering new things every day. The technology that is being invented for the security of the nation is always being tested on the other, and that is the reason as to why our official records still hold the UFO category,
The term is also used to refer unknown geological factors such as a meteor, a thick cloud bank that is unusual and seems like an anomaly, and they are placed under the head UFO until its characteristics and features are identified. They are also used to denote the alien objects, saucers and unknown space shuttles. This is the concept of UFO.
