Russia to build £3m UFO centre… tourism gone mad?

According to Ananova.com “Russia builds £3m UFO centre” (posted recently..no actual date though). It mentions

“Authorities in a remote Russian region at the centre of dozens of reports of UFO sightings have started work on a £3 million centre to attract alien spotters” (extract from article). It later mentions

“Now officials want to cash in on the fame with a centre that will include a museum and theme park.

It will include an observatory for people to scan the skies for UFOs, a special trail along sites of supposed UFO sightings, as well as displays and even equipment like infra-red cameras that can be rented by UFO spotters to catch aliens on film” (extract from article).

I just find this a bit sad, as it seems people are jumping on the band wagon, for tourism exploitation, and so on. I have no objection to a bit of marketing, but this seems way over the top and cheesy.

However, i feel the Roswell festival is a good idea, but this is slightly different, as it not all year round.

I dread to think what else might be added to this ‘ufo centre’.
