A new NASA project will focus on a rigorous scientific study of UFOs and unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP). The investigation is expected to last around 9 months and the results will be publicly announced upon completion.
NASA has announced plans to begin studying unidentified flying objects (UFOs) in a scientifically rigorous manner, with the idea of publishing the findings in a future public report. This was indicated by the North American space agency in a recent press release, in which it also clarified that at the moment there is no concrete evidence that the objects have an extraterrestrial origin.
The experts involved in this project will unearth relevant data on sightings of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), as well as find out how to better record these phenomena in the future. They will also try to determine how NASA can use the new information to improve scientific understanding of these mysterious objects.
The new NASA study will be led by astrophysicist David Spergel, according to the US space agency. Spergel received his bachelor’s degree in astronomy from Princeton University in 1982 and his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1985. He is currently chair of the department and holds the Charles A. Young Chair in Astronomy at Princeton University, United States. In his work as a researcher, Spergel has developed themes ranging from cosmology to the origin of life. In 2001, Time magazine included him in the list of America’s Top Scientists.
Unidentified “physical objects”
The announcement of the new initiative comes just over three weeks after a historic hearing in the US Congress, in which lawmakers questioned two intelligence and defense experts about multiple reports from military pilots related to UAP eventsas indicated in an article published in Live Science.
The public hearing was held on May 17 on Capitol Hill in Washington: on that occasion, it was confirmed that military personnel had reported at least 400 incidents of UFOs between 2004 and 2022. Interestingly, as of 2021 only 144 documented UAP sightings had been recognized.
The aforementioned hearing focused on a Pentagon report dated June 2021. As concluded by the US Department of Defense in that work, most of the cases involve “physical objects”that is, it would not be about optical phenomena capable of generating the “illusion” of the presence of an object that does not actually exist.
According to an article published in Interesting Engineering, Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott W. Bray admitted at the hearing to the existence of a growing number of unauthorized or unidentified aircraft or objects. Although he indicated that he could not conclude that they were objects from outer space, he did express that the cases still cannot be resolved. they don’t have a logical explanation.
In that sense, several of the stories of the pilots of the US Navy suggest that some of these ships apparently without propulsion move to hypersonic speeds. The movements seem to escape any expected behavior based on known technologies on our planet, according to different testimonies or even videos not officially recognized.
Rumors include that some meetings had taken place on sensitive nuclear facilitiessuch as an alleged incident at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana, in which 10 nuclear-powered intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) were rendered inoperable after a “bright red disc” passed over them.
