The article focuses on Gary McKinnon, a man accused of being responsible for hacking a number of U.S. military and U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) computers in 2001 and 2002. In his teenage years, McKinnon was more interested in science fiction and unidentified flying objects (UFOs). His quest for evidence for UFOs led him to hack the computers of the agencies. McKinnon claims that the existence of UFOs is kept secret by a process of ridicule. McKinnon stated that if he is neutral, he thinks that he should be tried but it should be done in Great Britain.
