US space agency NASA gave a platform to an independent committee investigating reported sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs), with researchers saying they found no evidence that aliens were responsible for the phenomenon. However, the agency also said it cannot rule out that possibility. The 36-page report presented Thursday does not provide conclusive evidence about aliens, but outlines how NASA will investigate the phenomenon (called UAPs or Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena) with improved technology and artificial intelligence.
Do aliens exist?
The report notes that “there is no reason to conclude that existing UAP reports have an extraterrestrial source.” However, the last page of the report adds that it is possible that the objects traveled through our solar system to get here. “If we acknowledge the plausibility of any of these, we must acknowledge that all of them are at least plausible,” the report said, not denying the possibility that “potentially unknown alien technology is active in Earth’s atmosphere.”
What about previous UFO sightings?
The study concluded that many past sightings were explained by aircraft, drones, balloons or meteorological conditions. A January report issued by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence found that most of the 510 UFO sightings were definitely not aliens, “although dozens of other strange sightings remain unofficially explained.” “. It said UAP still poses a threat even if it does not involve extraterrestrial advanced technology.
The report added that to reach a “definitive, scientific conclusion” about the origins of UFOs, NASA does not have sufficient high-quality evidence. However, NASA administrator Bill Nelson still believes there is life beyond Earth. “If you ask me, do I believe there is life in a universe so vast that I find it difficult to comprehend how big it is? My personal answer is yes. It would have to be a very advanced civilization (but) the distances is light years, hundreds of lights, billions of light years away.”
The study claimed that given data limitations, the sightings of UFOs “cannot be immediately identified as known man-made or natural phenomena.” Dr. NASA Associate Administrator Nicola Fox said the agency needs to find “a rocky planet around a hospitable star that is not too violent, that is in just the right place with features of water and features of carbon. blocks of life, and we continue to strive to do that.”
“The limitation of this data is that at any given time most of the Earth’s surface is not covered by high-resolution commercial satellites – for any given UAP event we will have to be fortunate enough to obtain high-resolution observations from space “, she says. said.
Appointment of the director of UFO research
NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said the organization will appoint a new director for UAP research. However, the identity of the new director has not yet been made public as he has received online threats regarding his work. According to Dr. Fox, the new director will serve as a focal point for bringing together communications, resources and data analytic skills in the U.S. government’s efforts to recognize and understand UAP.
