Who better to identify the unidentified than NASA, especially if that unidentified is hurling through space?
Well, it appears we are in luck, as NASA has indeed announced a team will start a new study into unidentified aerial phenomena. Or UAPs for short. Most people still refer to UAPs as UFOs, of course. But no matter what you call them, NASA is on the case. And this particular research will be focused exclusively on unclassified data.
“The team will identify how data gathered by civilian government entities, commercial data, and data from other sources can potentially be analyzed to shed light on UAPs,” NASA announced. “It will then recommend a roadmap for potential UAP data analysis by the agency going forward.”
For those who follow and are curious about unidentified flying objects, both in space and otherwise, NASA’s involvement can only be considered a plus. It is, after all, an expert in the field.
NASA Has Launched an Independent UFO Study
“Exploring the unknown in space and the atmosphere is at the heart of who we are at NASA,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. “Understanding the data we have surrounding unidentified aerial phenomena is critical to helping us draw scientific conclusions about what is happening in our skies. Data is the language of scientists and makes the unexplainable, explainable.”
As an interesting aside, this isn’t just NASA being bored or deciding they had nothing better to do.
It’s more likely the result that the number of reported encounters with UFOs has seen a sharp rise in recent years. The U.S. military, in particular, has encouraged pilots to document any such encounters, for national security purposes.
So not all UFOs are viewed as something that might have aliens aboard. Like you might see in a science fiction flick. Some could be generated by actual humans.
Either way, NASA now has a team to study it all, and highly likely in through NASA fashion. After all, being spacey is their business.
