NASA is set to make history later today (31 May) by making UFO findings public for the very first time.
Yes, unidentified flying object sightings have been mocked by all of us on Earth for many a year, but these findings are no joke.
Thomas Zurbuchen, previously the associate administrator for science at NASA, announced a study group last June by saying: "NASA believes that the tools of scientific discovery are powerful and apply here also.
"We have access to a broad range of observations of Earth from space – and that is the lifeblood of scientific inquiry.
"We have the tools and team who can help us improve our understanding of the unknown. That's the very definition of what science is. That's what we do."
Just the mere existence of the group has added much legitimacy to many unfound claims that have been spoken about surrounding UFOs for decades now.
As part of the study, researchers have been tasked with exploring the feasibility of tasking NASA's own hardware in the hunt for 'unidentified anomalous phenomena' (UAP).
The term UAP is used to broaden the search for UFOs, including mystery objects from the depths of the water to wide outer space.
NASA has previously stated there is no hard evidence of alien life in the universe, though they did conclude a current limited set of data makes it difficult to draw up any conclusive scientific results.
Wednesday's public hearing will see the panel of people working on the study talk about their findings so far - the first time NASA has done this in relation to UAPs.
They will also answering a bunch of questions from the public.
However, don't expect the initial meeting to be too in-depth, as the independent study group will present their full findings of their nine-month UFO study in July.
The panel will be delivered by head of the Pentagon's All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) Sean Kirkpatrick, while Federal Aviation Administration's Air Traffic Surveillance Services Office advisor Mike Freie will also be chipping in.
For those wanting to catch the event, it will be streamed on NASA TV and the agency's YouTube channel from 10:30am ET, 7:30am PST or 3:30pm in the UK.
