A NASA team of experts is starting a study of UFOs or as they have recently rebranded ” Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” (UAPs). And the NASA study is only the first step in developing a “roadmap” for long-term research.
The space agency announced on June 9th that the project will launch in the early fall.
The 9-month-study will start compiling all available data. They will use images, telescopes, satellites, and atmospheric data as a baseline for UAP research.
The study will have researchers identify all public UAP data in existence. It will determine best practices to collect UAP data moving forward. And develop methods to best study UAPs, from scientific and aerospace defense perspectives.
The team will be working through the NASA Science Mission Directorate.
The NASA study project will be led by astrophysicist David Spergel, the president of the Simons Foundation in New York City. And Daniel Evans, the assistant deputy associate administrator for research at NASA’s Science Mission Directorate.
NASA study to see what’s out there
Dr. Sperger and his team are not convinced that UAPs represent intelligent extraterrestrial life forms. And says that “the only preconceived notion I have coming into this is we should be open to the idea we’re looking at several different phenomena.”
