NASA announced Thursday that it will now analyze any information on the observation of extraterrestrial phenomena in order to authenticate them and know their origin.
“This is the first time that NASA is seriously considering these questions,” comments astrophysicist Robert Lamontagne, who attended the American space agency’s press conference broadcast online from Washington on Thursday. In his opinion, it was public pressure that led the American agency to become interested in possible extraterrestrial intrusions into our world.
After a year of reflection, the group of experts commissioned by NASA to reflect on its role in UFO sightings recommends not only analyzing the sightings reported by the public, but also conducting itself using precise and well-calibrated measuring tools.
NASA highlights its “considerable expertise in this area to use multispectral or hyperspectral” and could also use artificial intelligence “as part of a rigorous data acquisition campaign”. Here’s what you need to know.
UFOs are now UAPs
The NASA report no longer uses the term unidentified flying objects (UFO) but unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP).
Improve observational data
The panel’s report recommends that NASA “take a lead role in a government effort to understand” unidentified anomalous phenomena such as objects in the sky that appear to originate outside Earth’s atmosphere.
“One of the problems faced by all those who want to seriously study possible extraterrestrial manifestations on Earth is that the data is very imprecise,” illustrates Mr. Lamontagne. Both oral and visual testimonies are approximate and unreliable. With this announcement, NASA wants to take matters into its own hands. » But… that wasn’t done before, what? I always thought NASA studied sky phenomena, aliens, etc.
Giving credibility to ufologists
We must change the image of flying saucer observers. NASA wants to put its credibility at the service of observers of abnormal phenomena, because experts want to change “the negative perception surrounding the reporting of UAPs”. This image “constitutes an obstacle to the collection of data on these phenomena”. The fact that the population expresses great public confidence in NASA is “essential for communicating the results of these phenomena to citizens”. It promises to use a rigorous and transparent scientific approach.
NASA wants samples of ‘alien mummies’
At the press conference, NASA experts were asked to comment on the alleged discovery of two “non-human bodies” found in a mine and displayed at the Mexican parliament on September 12. NASA President Bill Nelson invited those who made the discovery to share samples with qualified research centers for analysis. “He recalled that when NASA astronauts brought back samples of lunar stone, they distributed them to international teams who requested them so that the scientific process could follow its course,” relates Robert Lamontagne.
