The US House of Representatives panel will hold a public hearing on Tuesday local time on the "unidentified flying phenomenon", also known as UFO, which will be in the US Congress for more than 50 years. This is the first hearing on this issue.
The hearing was made up of the House Intelligence Committee's Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence and Counterproliferation Subcommittee, which is chaired by Rep. André Carson, D-Indiana, the report said.
Following the public hearing, the panel will also hold a confidential briefing.
Last year, the United States released a long-awaited report on UFOs, which reviewed 144 incidents of what the government called "unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP)", but was unable to make a statement on 143 of them explain. The only unidentified aerial phenomenon with a clear explanation is a deflating giant balloon.
In January, the US Department of Defense announced the formation of a new office dedicated to investigating UFO sightings under the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security. However, many critics worry that the military may be hiding the truth.
