NASA assembles a team to collect UFO data

NASA assembles a team to study unidentified aerial phenomena, commonly known as UFOs.


R. Gelfenstein - NASA has stated that it is interested in unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs) from a safety standpoint. There was no evidence that the UAPs were of extraterrestrial origin, NASA added. The study will begin this fall and is expected to last nine months.

"NASA believes that scientific discovery tools are powerful and are applied here as well," said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for science mission management at NASA headquarters in Washington, D.C.

"We have access to a wide range of earth observations from space, and this is the cornerstone of scientific research. We have the tools and equipment that can help us improve our understanding of the unknown. This is the very definition of what science is.

"The team will be led by astrophysicist David Spergel, president of the Simons Foundation in New York. NASA said the limited number of UFO observations makes it difficult to draw scientific conclusions about the nature of such events."

"We're going to identify what data (from civilians, governments, nonprofits, businesses) exists, what else we should try to collect, and what's the best way to analyze it." A first step for the team would be to try to establish which UAPs are natural, NASA said.

In May, they held the first public congressional hearing on UFOs in decades. The hearing was a highlight of a controversial issue that has long been relegated to the fringes of law enforcement. Government officials warned that UAPs should be investigated and taken seriously as a potential threat to national security.
