NASA Will Tackle the UFOs with Science

On June 9th, NASA commissioned a study team to start early in the

Fall to examine unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs), or UFOs.

This may be a big stride for the scientific study of UFOs

“We have access to a broad range of observations of Earth from

space – and that is the lifeblood of scientific inquiry. We have the

tools and team who can help us improve our understanding of the

unknown. That’s the very definition of what science is. That’s what

we do,” says Thomas Zurbuchen, the associate administrator for

science at NASA Headquarters in Washington.

This study team was established just weeks after an unusual

congressional public hearing regarding the presence of UAP, or as

they are often referred to, UFOs. In this hearing, the witnesses were

assembled to provide the evidence for the UAPs, but the limited

amount of high-quality resources on UAPs hindered the National

Intelligence’s ability to make an effective conclusion.

Despite the unwanted outcome of this hearing, NASA continues to

explore and collect evidence for alien civilization. They

hypothesized many methods to find life, such as detecting their

pollution and using giant telescopes.

This independent study team, one of their attempts to understand

extraterrestrial civilizations, will be led by David Spergel, president

of the Simons Foundation in New York City and previous chair of

the astrophysics department at Princeton University.

“Given the paucity of observations, our first task is simply to gather

the most robust set of data that we can,” said Spergel. “We will be

identifying what data – from civilians, government, non-profits,

companies – exists, what else we should try to collect, and how to

best analyze it.”

This study is expected to be completed in nine months, with the help

from experts in the science, aeronautics, and data analytics to

concentrate on the best way to collect new data and facilitate the

progress of understanding UAPs.

Daniel Evans, the assistant deputy associate administrator for

research at NASA’s Science Mission Directorate states that the study

report will be shared publicly: “All of NASA’s data is available to

the public – we take that obligation seriously – and we make it easily

accessible for anyone to see or study.”

The Pentagon has been gathering eyewitness accounts of these

mysterious UFOs, said Ronald S. Moultrie, the undersecretary of

defense for intelligence and security. “We are committed to an effort

to determine their origins,” Moultrie said.
