National Geographic Channel Measures the Pulse of America in National Survey on UFOs and Alien Existence as New Series CHASING UFOs Premieres Friday, June 29, at 9 & 10 p.m. ET/PT
WASHINGTON, June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — According to a new U.S. extraterrestrial survey from National Geographic Channel (NGC), more than 80 million Americans are certain that UFOs exist. In fact, many believe in tangible proof that aliens have landed on Earth and think that government officials are involved in covering up paranormal activities. Moreover, most citizens would not mind a minor alien invasion, because they expect these space-age visitors to be friendly—like the lovable character depicted in Steven Spielberg’s popular film “E.T.”
Survey results also reveal that more than one-third (36%) of Americans believe UFOs exist. More than one in 10 (11%) are confident that they have spotted a UFO, and one in five (20%) know someone who claims to have seen one.
