Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) are ariel phenomena that cannot be identified as a natural occurrence or known objects. They have been over our skies since the 20th century. In recent times, UFOs have become more common than ever.
Despite their mood of occurrence, no one can determine the actual mystery behind these UFOs. As the popularity of UFOs grew across the world many Scientists are stepping in to study the mystery behind UFOs.
On June 9th, 2022, NASA officially announced its plan to join the hunt for UFOs. The official statement was released by Thomas Zurbuchen, the associate administrator for Science at NASA Headquarters in Washington.
According to Thomas, “NASA believes that the tools of scientific discovery are powerful and apply here also. We have access to a broad range of observations of Earth from space – and that is the lifeblood of scientific inquiry. We have the tools and team who can help us improve our understanding of the unknown. That’s the very definition of what science is. That’s what we do.”
This official announcement marked the beginning of NASA’s interest in studying the unidentified aerial phenomena popularly known as UFOs.
How NASA plans to Conduct the Study to Uncover Mysteries behind UFOs
If NASA must accomplish success in its plans to unveil the mysteries behind UFOs, the space agency needs a unique plan to start with.
NASA has hired an independent team of professionals to conduct the research. This team of scientists will be led by astrophysicist David Spergel, who works as the president of the Simons Foundation for Advancing Scientific research in New York.
After accepting this great responsibility from NASA, Spergel stated at a conference. “Given the paucity of observations, our first task is simply to gather the most robust set of data that we can,” said Spergel. “We will be identifying what data – from civilians, government, non-profits, companies – exists, what else we should try to collect, and how to best analyze it.” With this bold statement, the world is expecting astrophysicist Spergel and his team to come out with a great outcome from this research.
NASA planned to begin the study by the fall of 2022 and will run for nine months. The agency has made a budget of $100,000 to cover the entire cost of this study.
During the nine months of study, astrophysicist Spergel and his team will study the current data relating to UAPs. From this data, they will separate the sightings that are worth to be investigated and those that occurred naturally. The outcome of the study will be brought to the mainstream for the public to see.
What NASA Plans to Achieve from this Study
For years, we have been noticing unknown flying objects that are not birds or aircraft. Many people have raised concerns about these unidentified objects. However, many scientists have looked into the study of unidentified aerial phenomena or UAPs in the past without unveiling the mystery behind them.
Since the scientific community is founding it difficult to conclude about the sightings of UFOs, agencies like NASA are stepping up to unveil the mystery of UFOs. NASA’s primary goal in this study is to find out why UFOs move over our skies.
While describing the study at a conference, Zurbuchen revealed that this study will not be used to determine intelligent life beyond earth, however, it will assist researchers in moving closer to answering the question. After the study, we may be able to demystify UFOs that fly over our sky.
The study of unidentified phenomena is essential for national security and to protect our aircraft and spacecraft. Let’s wish the team of scientists well as they commence this study. What do you think about UFOs?
