飞碟探索 (English: Journal of UFO Research; UFO Exploration) is a Chinese-language magazine focusing on ufology. It was published between 1981 and 2018 before being suspended for a period, having reached 308 issues, prior to being relaunched in 2020. During the 1990s, when the magazine was at its height of popularity, it reportedly reached a circulation of 300K, and spent much of its page space on coverage of everything from alien encounters to fringe hypotheses, including in particular subjects like Qigong; in recent years, since that peak in readership, the magazine has shifted from being a popular, if outlandish, purveyor of the strange to offering a more scientific-materialist coverage of UFOs and related phenomena.
