NASA Calls for New Scientific Techniques in the Study of UFOs

NASA has released the findings of its yearlong study into UFOs, stating that the study of these unidentified flying objects will require new scientific techniques and a shift in perception. The space agency’s report, compiled by an independent team commissioned by NASA, cautions that the negative perception surrounding UFOs hinders data collection. However, NASA officials believe that their involvement in the study will help reduce the stigma around these phenomena, which they refer to as Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAPs).

According to NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, the agency aims to move the conversation about UAPs “from sensationalism to science.” The independent panel found no evidence supporting the extraterrestrial origin of UAPs.

The team emphasized the importance of utilizing artificial intelligence and machine learning for identifying rare occurrences, including UFO sightings. Transparency is an integral part of NASA’s approach to studying UAPs, as stated by Nelson. While the independent team did not have access to top-secret files, they relied on unclassified data to enhance their understanding of unexplained sightings in the sky.

NASA defines UAPs as observations in the sky or elsewhere that cannot be readily identified or scientifically explained. The agency acknowledged that there are very few high-quality observations, making it challenging to draw scientific conclusions.

The study was conducted at a budget of less than $100,000 and did not find conclusive evidence of extraterrestrial life associated with UFOs.

Overall, NASA’s report calls for a shift in perception, increased scientific involvement, and the utilization of advanced satellite technology to enhance the study of UFOs.
