THE HOUSE of Representatives will hold a public hearing on UFOs and shed light on the galaxy's greatest mysteries.
The hearing is set for 10:00AM on Tuesday, May 17th.
The US House Intelligence Committee's Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence and Counterproliferation Subcommittee will take the floor and unpack what they know about unexplained sightings for the American public.
Pentagon officials and intelligence directors will testify.
"The American people expect and deserve their leaders in government and intelligence to seriously evaluate and respond to any potential national security risks — especially those we do not fully understand," Representative André Carson said.
Representative Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said the public hearing will "break the cycle of excessive secrecy and speculation with truth and transparency."

Among other related topics, the hearing will discuss a nine-page 2021 report on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP).
Of the 144 UAP sightings between 2004 and 2021, the document writes that officials were only "able to identify one reported UAP with high confidence…The others remain unexplained."
The hearing will stream on the House Intelligence official YouTube channel, with coverage beginning at 7:00AM on the day of the hearing.
With the new proliferation of space launches thanks to Elon Musk's SpaceX, the cosmos and their infinite possibilities are at the forefront of the public psyche.

In an interview with NPR, technology history Kate Dorsch highlighted the fact that UFO lore is a uniquely American phenomenon.
"Of course, we will never have complete sighting data because not everyone reports," Dorsch said. "But it is fair to say that Americans seem more willing to talk about their experiences than people in other places in the world."
Dorsch said that other countries and cultures are more likely to ascribe unexplained sightings to be advanced technologies from Earth-based militaries.
"For example, UFO sightings in the '50s and '60s in Germany very rarely had the sort of alien-extraterrestrial bend," she added.
"Instead, Germans saw things they couldn't explain and assumed that they were American or Russian technology, that the global superpowers were testing new kinds of war technology over their skies."
