I want to believe. In early June, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced forming a survey team to fully examine unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP).
As of October 24, this team has already begun to work and for a period of 9 months it will sculpt the bases for future studies on the nature of these phenomena, both for NASA and for other organizations.
The NASA team
Will this team be in charge of looking for aliens? does it mean that we already have communication with them? One moment, let’s go by parts.
To begin with, an unidentified aerial phenomenon is not necessarily an alien or a spaceship with intelligent life, although it could be. That’s the joke of the investigations.
NASA defines them as observations of events in the sky that cannot be identified as human aircraft or known natural phenomena.
Currently we cannot draw conclusions about what these phenomena are or why they originate because there are a limited number of recorded and documented observations.
And although there is still no evidence that these phenomena are of extraterrestrial origin (yet), for these are matters of national (and planetary) security concern, as well as aviation security.
So the first task of this new team is going to be to compile the first database on this matter. In other words, they will identify what information exists, how it should be collected and a method to analyze it. Be it information from civilians, governments, organizations and companies.
The team is made up of 16 people, it started on October 24 and will work for nine months. They are going to focus only on the unclassified data so far and around the middle of 2023 they are going to publish a full report.
This independent study will be led by Daniel Spergel, president of the Simons Foundation and founding director of the Flatiron Institute for Computational Astrophysics.
Specialist members include also Scott Kelly, who was a NASA astronaut, test pilot, fighter pilot, and retired US Navy captain.
It is important to mention that NASA is not part of the United States Department of Defense’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force or the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group.
