Let’s say space aliens land. They forcibly take you back to their flying saucer to examine you, possibly as a prelude to intergalactic invasion.
If it were to really happen, it would be the worst sort of experience — akin to rape, murder and other violent crimes.
Nevertheless, alien abduction has always been the domain of science fiction and unexplained phenomena. In Myrtle Beach, S.C., it’s the subject of “Encounters: UFO Experience,” a family-friendly exhibition opening on April 6 at Broadway at the Beach.
Visitors will take an interactive journey that showcases ancient mysteries, military involvement with UFOs and pop culture’s enthrallment with aliens and outer space.
“The exhibition is divided into seven distinct galleries. The first one is Ancient Encounters, which focuses on the unsolved mysteries of ancient times, megalithic structures that are still questionable today as to how they could have been built with the tools that were available at the time,” said Brian Bouquet, who has spent the past five years designing “Encounters” for The Event Agency.
“This gallery also encompasses some Egyptian walls that we’ve recreated — hieroglyphics which show very early identifications of flying objects, be it spaceships or what they felt was in the air that was not of this Earth,” Bouquet told The Huffington Post.
