Word has come down from Japan that they’ve opened a UFO research lab in Fukushima to study UFO encounters. Y’know, the same place where a nuclear accident happened in 2011. The irony isn’t lost on me, though I am expecting an appearance from Godzilla, Super sentai Rangers, and Ultraman in the future.

According to news agencies covering the event, the research facility was opened in UFO Interactive Hall, a facility with UFO-related displays located in the city. It’s said that the institute will strive to unravel the “enigma” of these unidentified flying objects. It will be accepting online applications from researchers, witnesses, etc. with the intention to move forward with analysis and investigation.

This is about as official as any country can get in actually taking such phenomenon seriously.
