Alien Invasion in 1938
YES! It happened in 1938 {exactly 75 years ago today} broadcast live 'on October 30, 1938, and aired over the Columbia Broadcasting System radio network. Not only was it taken seriously by many who panicked.' 'In the days following the adaptation......there was widespread outrage and panic by certain listeners, who had believed the events described in the program were real'.

The War of the Worlds is an episode of the American radio drama anthology series The Mercury Theatre on the Air. It was performed as a Halloween episode of the series on October 30, 1938, and aired over the Columbia Broadcasting System radio network. Directed and narrated by actor and future filmmaker Orson Welles, the episode was an adaptation of H. G. Wells's novel The War of the Worlds (1898).
The first two thirds of the 62-minute broadcast were presented as a series of simulated news bulletins, which suggested to many listeners that an actual alien invasion by Martians was currently in progress. Compounding the issue was the fact that the Mercury Theatre on the Air was a sustaining show (it ran without commercial breaks), adding to the program's realism. Although there were sensationalist accounts in the press about a supposed panic in response to the broadcast, the precise extent of listener response has been debated.
In the days following the adaptation, however, there was widespread outrage and panic by certain listeners, who had believed the events described in the program were real. The program's news-bulletin format was described as cruelly deceptive by some newspapers and public figures, leading to an outcry against the perpetrators of the broadcast. Despite these complaints—or perhaps in part because of them—the episode secured Welles' fame as a dramatist.

"Apparently nobody was more surprised by the mass hysteria than Welles. He's seen here in news photographs, bearded and exhausted, facing reporters' scrutiny the morning after. He's filled with both contrition for provoking hysteria and a little bewildered that anyone in his or her right mind would actually believe reports of an invasion from Mars. He was only 23 but keenly aware that this "scandal" would be the making of his career."

AND SOME OF YOU WONDER WHY THE GOVERNMENT WILL NOT DISCLOSE WHAT THEY KNOW AND HOW THEY ARE INVOLVED WITH ALIENS ???

If a short radio broadcast based on a fictional novel can create that much of a stir so as to panic some individuals, think what the disclosure of real aliens might cause ?!?!

spock -The Human imagination is illogical.

alien03 -Aliens are imaginary.

Maybe? and assuming you are dealing with 'friendly' aliens.
But Humans can not even accept each other - Why do you think
they would accept aliens? And how do you know they will not invade like "War of the Worlds" or the more modern "Independence Day"?

They will have no choice but to try and deal with it or take the other option and go full retard.

No one is ever ready for Cancer or having half of their bones shattered in a car accident. The beauty about it is pain/suffering/disaster often brings the best out in people and brings people closer.

Some conspiracy theorists believe they, Governments of the New World Order, will stage a fake invasion for just that reason,
to unite the World under the 'New World Order'.

Yes, that most certainly is a high probability!
