The Nottingham Building Society was founded back in 1849 by a small group of Nottingham businessmen, led by local Quaker Samuel Fox. The first ever branch used to open between 6pm and 9pm on the first Tuesday of each month and the vision for the building society was to help people own their own home, as well as offer them a safe and secure place for their savings.

The past couple years have been rife with stokedness-inducing news of the UAP (unidentified aerial phenomenon) variety, thanks in large part to frequent updates from To the Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences revitalizing interest in such phenomena for new generations.

Now, by way of James Fox’s new documentary The Phenomenon, Harry Reid—who served as a U.S. Senator from 1987 to 2017 and boasts a stacked history with the UAP research push that famously has ties to TTSA co-founder Tom DeLonge—has returned to headlines with some enticing comments about the field that further strengthen the interpretation that recent developments are indeed key in moving the conversation forward.

“All we’re saying—nobody has to agree why it’s there—but shouldn’t we at least be spending some money to study all these phenomenon?” Reid tells Fox in a clip from the documentary, which is now available via VOD services. “Shouldn’t we study the
