What is behind all these UFO sightings? We may find out.

NASA announced the 16 people who will spend the next nine months studying unidentified aerial phenomena, also known as UFOs.

Using unclassified data, the team will “lay the groundwork for future study” of UFOs by examining how the data is gathered by the public, local government and other sources. The goal is to have a roadmap for NASA’s data analysis on the flying objects, and determine what events are natural or not.

“Exploring the unknown in space and the atmosphere is at the heart of who we are at NASA,” Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of the Science Mission Directorate at NASA, said in a statement. “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.”

The announcement of the study participants comes amid a renewed interest in UFOs. In June 2021, the office of the U.S. Director of National Intelligence released a highly anticipated report examining unidentified aerial phenomena, but no “firm conclusions” could be drawn on more than 140 instances.

Still, federal officials continue to monitor UAPs because they are viewed as a potential national security threat, according to Rep. André Carson, D-Indiana. The Department of Defense created the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization in November 2021 to track and analyze UFOs, and in May, Congress held its first public hearing on UFOs in more than 50 years.

While UFOs are commonly associated with aliens, NASA doesn’t think the phenomena are “extra-terrestrial in origin.” But the agency says observations make it difficult to draw scientific conclusions.

Who will study UFOs for NASA?

The research group picked by NASA include astronomers, scientists, aviation officials, as well as a former astronaut, oceanographer and reporter.

The team’s full report is expected to be released to the public in mid-2023.

As Paul Nelson comments: “Sorting out phenomena into ‘a sufficient physical [non-intelligent] cause exists’ versus ‘alien [or human] intelligence required’ is design detection, by any construal of the underlying logic.” What would the UFO team decide if they were fed the genetic code from human DNA, perhaps disguised in a format that didn’t reveal it as such?

    For anyone who thinks this attempt involves anything new.

    The US Air Force has had this UFO problem since 1947. They control all information about it. For some reason, they hired J. Allen Hynek, an astronomer, to look into this. As time passed, various study projects going by various names came and went. The early consensus was that these craft were Russian. In 1968, the US Air Force funded a study of UFOs to be completed by select persons at the University of Colorado, who concluded that the study of UFOs should not be continued, and based on past reports, no increase in scientific knowledge has occurred. The paperback version, at over 1,000 pages, was released in January 1969. There has been no progress and certainly no disclosure since 1947.

    I have every reason to believe these are reconnaissance aircraft that will not be disclosed. And further reason to believe that false and misleading statements have been made concerning their performance. 1966, Michigan. J. Allen Hynek blames a UFO sighting on swamp gas.

    I can guarantee that there will be no conclusions, no answers, regarding this.

    Yes, nothing sorts the truth out like a government funded study.
