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

Posted by dandare on February 20, 2008


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’.

    Hi Asia… I think you might have misunderstood me here: probably the Roswell festival was a wrong example to give; however, it only happens once a year, for a set period.
    What i do not like is the tackiness that a ufo centre would bring, all year round, with trails et al. I must also say, that this applies to any country (not just Russia)…. there are probably examples in the USA (but at the moment this escapes me) , as well as other countries.
    However, £3m on a ufo centre…. thats got to be the most spent on 0ne ufo centre ever.
    It’s a shame this was not spent on research instead, for instance.
    Thanks for your comments.

  3. Hello. . .

    Russia was the FIRST to put a man-made satellite in space . . .the FIRST to place a manned spacecraft on Earth orbit..(never mind the FIRST animal/dog Laika). . . the FIRST to send the first WOMAN in space, too. . .never mind that they LOST in the Moon race with the U.S. . .

    Now, perhaps by putting up this rather “expensive” museum, I hope they got some REAL alien “stuff” for exhibition. Maybe the UFO (or parts of it) they found in the Gobai desert?. . . perhaps a “real” honest-to-goodness “alien life form”?. . .
