Haim Eshad, former head of Israel's space security programme, has sent shockwaves around the world by boldly claiming that humans are already in contact with "aliens" and that a legit "Galactic Federation" exists with Earth as an active member.
The space scientist's explosive quotes came just days after a number of tall, iron monoliths mysteriously appeared (and vanished) in several parts of the world including the US, Russia, Romania, Spain, and Colombia, prompting speculations of their "extraterrestrial" origin.
All these events one after the other have opened the meme gates on social media: the hashtag #aliens has been trending on Twitter.

In his interview, Eshad also claimed that US President Donald Trump was on the verge of revealing the "truth" about aliens – who are, as of now, apparently waiting for humans to evolve and reach a stage where we will generally understand what space and spaceships are.
The Pentagon made the decision to release those videos because they do not reveal any sensitive capabilities of US surveillance systems or impinge on any subsequent military air space incursions.
This year, several instances of spotting unidentified flying objects (UFOs) from around the world also made it to the headlines.
