One Denver man is attempting to make this number grow through his new book, "Answers."
Stan Romanek, an international best-selling author, is trying to expand people's understanding of UFOs. He advocates keeping an open-mind on how our planet is inextricably connected to the evolution of our galaxy.
Romanek believes that oneness with the extra terrestrial beings is a true reality.
Through the book, Romanek creates a conversation that everyone can relate to. His own alien abduction story reflects a "family next door" attitude and challenges the idea that the universe is far greater than we can imagine.
Aside from any individual interpretations or opinions about extraterrestrial abductions, Romanek stresses that everyone has something that they can take away through a celestial connection.
