In return, NASA will launch an investigation to explain UFOs

For its part, after attempts by American intelligence, then the Pentagon, NASA launched an investigation to understand the unidentified aerial phenomena. The study, which is scheduled to begin in the fall and last nine months, will be conducted by well-known scientists and aviation experts.

The possibility of extraterrestrial visits to Earth is definitely being taken more seriously in the United States: NASA announced on Thursday, June 9, the start of a several-month investigation into an unidentified aerial phenomenon – the famous UFO – in the fall.

After attempts by American intelligence, then the Pentagon, it is now NASA’s turn to study the presence of these objects, which, for example, move unusually or very quickly in our atmosphere and which cannot be explained with the current level of our knowledge.

There is no evidence that these phenomena have an extraterrestrial origin, the space agency immediately emphasized. But “if someone were to ask me if I think there is compelling evidence for intelligent life in any of these phenomena, I would give a perfectly acceptable answer for a scientist, which is that I don’t know,” Thomas Zurbuchen, deputy administrator at of NASA,” he said at a news conference.

However, the issue could not be more important because it affects both national security and air transport, the American authority argued.

Three goals

The study is conducted by leading scientists and aviation experts. It is scheduled to begin in early fall, last nine months, and result in a report made public.

Three goals are announced: to collect the data already available, to determine what is missing and how best to collect it, and to decide which tools to use to analyze it in the future.

“Today we have a very limited compilation of these observations,” explained David Spergel, the astrophysicist who is spearheading this work, during the same press conference. “That makes it difficult to draw any conclusions.”

In fact, however, mountains of data exist, according to NASA experts, who want to collect them from governments, private companies, associations or even individuals. The budget allocated should not exceed $100,000.

The idea is to destigmatize the issue. “One of the outcomes of this study, for me, would be to make everyone understand (…) that the scientific process is valid to deal with all problems, including this one,” launched Thomas Zurbuchen, who says he decided to do this research open.


In June 2021, in a long-awaited report, the US Secret Service claimed there was no evidence of the existence of extraterrestrials, but acknowledged that dozens of phenomena observed by military pilots could not be explained. And last month, the US Congress held a public hearing on it for the first time in over 50 years.

According to the Pentagon, an increasing number of unidentified objects have been reported in the sky over the past 20 years. And they inevitably arouse the wildest speculations.

“I think that new scientific mechanisms will be discovered,” said Thomas Zurbuchen. “There have been many instances where what seemed almost magical turned out to be a new scientific effect.” “Never underestimate what nature is capable of,” he added.

The experts pledged to approach this project without preconceived notions. But for David Spergel, UFOs probably summarize different phenomena that cannot be put under a single explanation. The study may not shed light on many aspects straight away, he acknowledged, but rather aims to provide a roadmap for the future development of this goal.
