In this segment for Newsy's daily morning show, "The Day Ahead" explores that enduring unknown of alien life.
The believers and conspiracy theorists have been around for decades. A 20th Century Fox survey once found nearly half of Americans believe in alien life. Just in the last year, video was released of U.S. Navy pilots encountering what appears to be a UFO.
This segment dives deep into our fascination with extraterrestrials and includes an interview with SETI Institute's senior astronomer Seth Shostak.
"The Day Ahead" airs Monday through Friday from 7 to 9 a.m. on the Newsy channel. Click here for local listings.
