After the recent high-profile Pentagon report on UFOs, NASA was commissioned to organize a group of scientists who would study unidentified flying objects (UFOs) for nine months. Although the military department and NASA prefer to call them “unidentified aerial phenomena” or UAP. The study starts in early autumn.
Scientists from the space agency will carefully study documented cases of sightings of objects in the sky that have not been identified as airplanes or other natural phenomena. To study the UFO problem, specialists will use artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies.
The agency immediately clarified one thing: “There is no evidence of extraterrestrial origin of UFOs or UAP”. It is necessary to approach the study of such things with an open mind without any conspiracy theory. But unexpected consequences are allowed. Therefore, Thomas Zurbuchen, NASA’s deputy administrator in the Science Mission Directorate, identified this research as work that goes against current generally accepted scientific ideas. Zurbuchen does not rule out that the results of the study can greatly change our understanding of the world around us.
Zurbuchen called the work of the new commission “important, with a high risk and a high level of influence”. The group will be led by David Spergel, an astrophysicist at Princeton University, who will be assisted by Daniel Evans, assistant Associate Administrator for Research at NASA. All of them will approach the study of the phenomenon exclusively from a scientific point of view. The team hopes that existing technologies will reveal the mystery of UFOs, or at least try to explain them from a scientific point of view.
