Interview to Zhou Xiaoqiang
Is it difficult to recognize a real UFO sighting from a fake?
We have done a large number of researches and surveys on UFO events and analyzed these cases through meetings before sorting out a contrast library so that we now have abundant cases for reference. We have the ability to analyze and judge the UFO events.
Have you ever seen a UFO?
There are many UFO reports. We have seen several UFOs and we also obtained a great number of UFO reports. However, at present, among the cases we surveyed, no one could prove that there is any flying saucer piloted by the extraterrestrial creatures. Of course, the new judgment method for flying saucers is different from the old one. In the past, the standards were hanging in the air, upside-down flying, and high speed, which can be done by humans nowadays. Therefore, the former UFO events have been proved to be caused by humans, for example, the 51 sector in the USA is the origin of the misjudgment.
How many sightings are there in China every year?
There are many UFO witness reports in China each year. Due to the extensive scope of reports, the national quantity is unclear, but the reports received by us are more than dozens.
What is the behavior of the Chinese government toward such an issue?
The Chinese government supports UFO research. The organization is just the body corporate-led by the Science and Technology Association. The government often reports and promotes UFO events, including the immediate report of United States cosmonaut’s views on extraterrestrial creatures.
