In their sensational podcast “Last Game Standing”, authors Christian Alt and Christian Schiffer have passionate yet harmonious discussions about computer games. But now they have a dispute – and it’s about aliens. Their previous book, “Angela Merkel is Hitler’s Daughter”, clearly showed how dangerous conspiracy theories are. But suddenly, Alt brings up the subject of superfast “Tic Tac” UFOs and Barack Obama saying that there are flying objects that the US isn’t able to classify. Alt is delighted, but Schiffer is skeptical. Isn’t there a rational explanation for everything? In The Truth Is Out There Somewhere (Maybe), the two authors tell the story of UFO sightings from the very start, discuss various theories, speak to experts, and gaze both up at the sky and down at humanity. What does it say about us that we immediately think of aliens whenever there is a random flying object?
