NASA has decided to become involved in the UAP phenomenon, but it is not claiming that they are looking for aliens. The space agency will spend $100,000 on an investigation into UAPs. The researchers will study all video footage and consult with military and astrophysics experts. The results of the study could change the way people view UAPs. For now, NASA is focusing on reducing the stigma attached to reporting UAPs and looking for alien life.
The report reveals that US intelligence services were unable to explain more than half of the UFO sightings. The report states that 143 of the sightings were unidentified and concluded that the object was most likely a balloon. The study, published by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, does not reveal which agencies investigated the cases. Instead, it lists Travis Taylor, who claims to be the chief scientist for the study.
The study is expected to last for nine months. The findings of the study will be presented publicly. The research will help NASA identify and analyze the unknown entities in the atmosphere that pose a safety risk to airplanes. However, some experts say that the UAPs are not aliens. This is contrary to the official position of NASA. The agency has long been interested in finding life on Mars and other watery moons in the solar system, and in finding signs of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe.
UFOs have long been a source of fascination in the United States. In 2017, the New York Times reported on UFO sightings. It also revealed that the government had secretly conducted an investigation into them. One of the most famous UFO videos from 2004 was called “Tic Tac,” because it resembled a cylinder breath mint. The object then sped out of the frame, and the pilot of the plane that captured the video later said.
In the meantime, astronomers are wary of these claims and have questioned whether or not Loeb really did find any evidence of alien life. The data presented by Loeb and his team was incomplete and some of the velocity estimates relied on classified missile detection systems, making it impossible to verify. As a result, the paper was rejected. However, the scientists are now planning a private expedition to retrieve pieces of the meteor from the atmosphere. The expedition is estimated to cost $1.5 million.
Although many scientists are skeptical about the UFO phenomenon, the vast majority of Americans believe that intelligent life exists on other planets. The latest Pew poll also suggests that two-thirds of American citizens believe in aliens. But, Utah Sen. Mitt Romney weighed in on the UAP/UFO hysteria last summer and said sightings of UFOs were not evidence of a quantum leap in technological capabilities of a terrestrial state actor.
In the end, there is only one way to find out if the UAPs are real: by looking at the facts. A recent report by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence looked at the UAPs that have been observed by the public over the last two decades. The report contains no evidence of aliens, although the authors do note that they found some odd behavior among UAPs.
