The NASA publishes this Thursday a long-awaited report on UFOs, which will establish a roadmap for the future study of these unidentified flying objects. The American Space Agency (NASA) announced last year the launch of an independent investigation, led by a group of scientists and aeronautics experts.

Their goal was not to analyze the observed events one by one or try to explain them, but to make recommendations on how to study them in the future.
Following the publication of the report around 9:30 a.m. Washington time (1:30 p.m. GMT), NASA will hold a press conference in the presence of its director, Bill Nelson, and the astrophysicist who directs the research, David Spergel.
The term UFO has been replaced in government jargon by UAP (unidentified aerial phenomena). The idea is to destigmatize the topic.
The NASA defines these phenomena as “the observation of events in the sky that cannot be scientifically identified as an airplane or a known natural phenomenon.”
While recognizing the existence of such events and the need to take them seriously, NASA has been repeating for a year that there is no evidence that they have an extraterrestrial origin.
During a meeting in June, experts stressed the need to collect more data, in a much more rigorous way than until now. One panel member called for the creation of an office dedicated to the issue within the space agency.
At the beginning of the work, three objectives were announced. First of all, collect all publicly available information, from governments, private companies, associations and even individuals. Then Determine what information is missing and how best to collect it. Finally, think about what are the best tools to analyze them in the future.
According to some experts, new physical phenomena could be discovered that would explain certain phenomena.
US intelligence and the Pentagon have also investigated the issue, stressing that it affects both national and air traffic security.
