World Contact Day πŸ‘½

March 15th

Do you believe in E.T.?

World Contact Day brings together E.T. enthusiasts from all over the world with one mission in mind. To contact life forms beyond our planet and to celebrate the possibility of such entities existing.

Believe it or not, according to a survey conducted in 24 different countries, nearly half of the people believed an intelligent alien civilisation exists. With more than 60% believing there is some form of life on other planets.

This is not surprising with reports of UFO sightings, alien abductions, and retired government officials claiming to have had contact with E.T.’s and their technology. There’s Declassified government documents exposing the possibility of crashed UFO craft. As well as speculation of governments working with and using alien technology to enhance human life. The unexplained existence of Crop circles, unusual signals from space, fossils & meteorites show the possibility of life beyond earth and even ancient structures and civilisations claiming to have had first contact. Baring all this in mind it can be seen why the survey results were as high as they were. So how did World Contact Day first come into existence?

The First Contact Project:

On March 15th 1953 The International Flying Saucer Bureau (IFSB), which no longer exists, declared the first World Contact Day. The message sent telepathically was β€œWe are your friends and would like you to make an appearance here on EARTH. Please come in peace and help us with our EARTHLY problems. Let us hear from you.”

The project itself was shrouded in mystery, with the founder claiming he was visited by 3 men in black who communicated with him telepathically. On his second encounter, the beings claimed they had captured humans from earth to disguise themselves to have a human form on earth for their visits. On the 3rd encounter, the entities warned Albert K. Bender, the founder of the IFSB, not to publish his finding on UFOs and threatened him. As a result of this encounter on November 1953, he shut down the Bureau with a cautionary note to those seeking out alien life.

Space Exploration Projects.

Although there are numerous space projects seeking out life beyond earth, one of the more notable and interesting ones involves the launch of the Voyager space probes.

In 1977 NASA launched the space probes Voyager 1 & 2. To explore outer space and send back the data they gathered to earth. To date, they are the longest-flying objects in spacecraft history. Voyager 1 has beenΒ currently operating for 45 years, 6 months and 4 days, as of March 9, 2023, and just in case there was intelligent life out there. NASA placed a copy of a Golden record in the spacecraft, the record carries a selection of messages β€œβ€¦from humanity to the cosmos that includes greetings in 55 languages, pictures of people and places on Earth and music ranging from Beethoven to Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode.” Find out more here In Depth | Voyager 1 – NASA Solar System Exploration
