THE Nasa announced that it has a team ready to study mysterious flying objects. For some time man has been trying to find out if there is life outside of Earth. In addition to being exciting, the subject is indeed intriguing: are we really alone in the universe? If, on the one hand, there is still no definitive truth, on the other hand, fiction works well on the subject, especially cinema. It is not yet known if extraterrestrial life exists, or if it is more or less developed than human life.
Thus, some questions are expected to be answered after this attempt to find out whether such apparitions are, in fact, about UFOs. The team is made up of experts from various scientific fields ranging from physics to astrobiology, with a full focus on unclassified objects.
NASA begins to study unidentified flying objects
Observations of events in the sky that cannot be identified, such as known aircraft or natural phenomena, are classified as unidentified aerial phenomena (PSU).
according to a Statement from NASA, an independent study of these phenomena, which the US government calls “Unidentified Flying Objects”, began on Monday, October 24. The survey will last nine months and will lay the groundwork for new and future studies on the NAPs.
Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington, said: “Understanding the data we have on unidentified aerial phenomena is critical to helping us draw scientific conclusions about what is happening. in our sky. Data is the language of scientists and makes the unexplainable, explainable.
The team formed to study the flying objects is composed of 16 members
The team formed by NASA to study the mysterious flying objects has 16 people. Leading the team is Daniel Evans, Deputy Assistant Administrator for Research in NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. According to Evans, “NASA has brought together some of the world’s leading scientists, data and artificial intelligence professionals, aerospace security experts, all with a specific mandate, which is to tell us how to fully apply the goal of Science and data to the UAP”.
It should be noted that the study is a turning point for the US government, given its attempts – for decades – not to seriously address the issue. Commonly associated with flying saucers and spacecraft aliensthe term UFO was replaced by the government by UAP.
The formation of the group was announced in June and has the following expert members responsible for the study of unidentified flying objects:
