The UFO controversy is a topic that deserves continued monitoring and investigation in the event that one or more of the incidents reported may exhibit provable signs of a previously unknown phenomenon. Many of the UFO incidents on record are often highly unusual and difficult to explain but do not provide proof of extraterrestrial or otherwise exotic origins that are commonly expressed in popular media. It is urgent that immediate attention be given to both preserving the existing records and duplicating those records into other forms for future issemination and study in the event that important elements of information may contribute to a solution, or solutions, to the more mysterious incidents.
