NASA is gearing up to initiate a full-on UFO investigation. Space.com reports that after years of experts calling for more research into the phenomenon, NASA is developing a UFO research panel. The panel will be headed by astrophysicist and president of the Simons Foundation, David Spergel. Importantly, experts are expected to convene to discuss sightings, studies, science, and everything related to UAPs.
UFO Now Called UAP
UAP is the new term for UFO, standing for “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” instead of “Unidentified Flying Object.” Yes, it’s pretty much all the same. There are unidentified flying thingies in the sky and outer space. What’s more, pilots, bystanders, and scientists alike are all perplexed by decades of curious sightings.
The panel will have a budget of under $100,000 and complete its discussions and research within 9 months. Further, about 15 to 17 experts are expected to be a part of the team.
Assistant deputy associate administrator for research at the Simons Foundation, Daniel Evans, says that the panel is serious. “We’re going full force,” he assures. “This is really important to us, and we’re placing a high priority on it.”
Evans continues, “NASA really is uniquely positioned to address UAP, because we know how to use the tools of science and data to discern what might be happening out there in the skies. And, to be frank, no other agency is trusted as much by the public as us.”
Pentagon Declassified UFO Sighting Videos In 2020
The U.S. Navy developed a UAP task force in August 2020. This came right after the Pentagon declassified multiple videos of U.S. Navy pilots documenting UAP sightings. The videos include UAPs spotted accelerating at speeds that humans could not possibly survive. Additionally, they do not create sonic booms, which is something that humanity’s laws of physics state must happen in these conditions.
Still, not everyone believes that UAPs originate from extraterrestrial origins. But that leads to the question: Who on Earth could possibly be doing this?
Hopefully NASA’s investigatory panel comes to some fascinating or useful conclusions. More to come later.
