In Russia, the Ryazan State Radio Engineering University named after V. F. Utkin created a spacecraft for collecting extraterrestrial objects.
“The invention relates to small-size research binary spacecraft designed to search for and collect nanoscale objects of extraterrestrial origin that have accumulated in cosmic dust structures located in the vicinity of libration points (Lagrange points),” the university said.
The device will be able to collect nanoscale objects of extraterrestrial origin in those points of space where the attraction of the Sun and the Earth are balanced between each other. The space collector will attract nanoscale objects using an electric field and seal them in sealed containers that will not allow the objects of research to mix with the earth’s rock.
In 2020, the Pentagon confirmed the creation of a working group on the study of UFOs.
