The US space agency NASA announced Thursday that it plans to investigate the origins of… Unidentified Air Phenomena (UAPs) In a new investigative effort the next semester begins.
According to the space agency, the mission will focus on Data analysis is already availablein the evaluation of the best way Future data collection And in the account How can NASA use this information? To enhance the scientific community’s understanding of the topic.
“We have access to a wide range of Earth observations from space – this is the lifeblood of scientific research. We have the tools and the team that can help us improve our understanding of the unknown. It’s science. That’s what we’re doing,” said NASA Science Mission Director Thomas Zurbuchen.
Still according to the agency, currently, we do not have supporting evidence that these phenomena are of extraterrestrial origin.
Despite this, NASA considers these UFOs (unidentified flying objects, the more common name for this phenomenon) to be of interest to the national security of the United States and to the air safety of the country, as one of the concerns of the U.S. government is that these objects are in fact from some competitors Military personnel of the United States, such as China and Russia.
Last year, as evidenced by g 1The Pentagon, the US military, released a report that cited the monitoring of more than 140 unidentified flying objects. Then, last May, the US Congress held a meeting on the subject.
However, the NASA study team will be independent and unrelated to the Pentagon’s work. The agency said the research effort will be led by astrophysicist David Spiergel, who was chair of the astrophysics department at Princeton University.

“Given the paucity of observations, our first task is simply to collect the strongest set of data we can,” Spergel said. “We will determine what data – from civilians, government, nonprofits, and businesses – there is, what we should try to collect, and how best to analyze it.”
NASA expects the study to take about nine months to complete. According to the agency, all data should be published and made available to the public.
“We take this commitment very seriously, and will make it accessible to anyone who sees or studies it,” said Daniel Evans, who commissioned NASA to coordinate the study.
