NASA confirmed its full commitment to the study of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) during a meeting at the Science Mission Directorate (SMD). The meeting took place after the recent announcement of funding for the research of this mysterious phenomenon, which cannot yet be explained by any known human or natural phenomena. These observations, also known as unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), have generated huge public interest, as well as concerns about air and national security, prompting NASA to delve deeper into this topic.
“We are now working on UFO research at full capacity. This is very important to us, and we give it priority,” said Daniel Evans, Assistant Associate Administrator for SMD Research.
The study will be led by the President of the Simons Foundation, David Spergel. The team members were selected by NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate in ongoing consultation with the U.S. Department of Defense and Congressional stakeholders. The staff will include the world’s leading scientists, data processing specialists, aerospace security experts and even involve artificial intelligence. All of them should work productively, trying to find a scientific explanation for UFOs.
NASA has already stated that there is no evidence that aliens are behind the UFO. But the agency recognizes that these phenomena are strange and unnatural, even if they happen right here on Earth. For example, according to internal documents recently released at the request of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), NASA representatives discussed the strange “extreme acceleration” of unknown aerial phenomena and their dizzying maneuvers in the air that no modern aircraft can repeat.
The James Webb Space Telescope and the Artemis mission will even be involved in the study of mysterious phenomena.
