It was a shocker of a story, splashed across the New York Times front page: The existence of a five-year long, hidden Pentagon investigation of UFOs. With two-thirds of the American public convinced that aliens are visiting Earth, could this study finally provide the proof?

We consider how this story came to light and what the $22 million program has produced. Does the existence of a secret study mean theres now decent proof of extraterrestrial craft in our skies? We take a look at the evidence made public so far.

And why, six years after the study ended, are we learning about it now?
