John, it seems to me you have asked and answered the wrong
question. It should be are _any_ UFOs ET spacecraft?

Similarly are _any_ isotopes fissionable?

Can _any_ aircraft go faster than the speed of sound?

Can _any_ drugs cure infections?

My answers are all yes. If I was asked the question with _any_
replaced by _all_, it would be no.
