독특한: NASA를 위한 하나의 거대한 도약! National space agency confirms it is joining the investigation of UFOs after previously refusing to partake in ‘active search’ for unidentified aerial phenomena – days after historic congressional hearing
Following the first public congressional hearing on ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena’ (증기) 에 54 years this month and a new law mandating a government UAP task force, sources say that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is ramping up its efforts to help the investigation.
The new NASA project could see the administration throw its considerable scientific weight behind a search for possible signs of extraterrestrial life, not just on far-flung planets, but right here on Earth.
A NASA spokesperson confirmed it is ‘evaluating how to provide our expertise in space-based Earth observations to improve understanding of UAPs’ and ‘has consulted with multiple government entities’ – but denied it was setting up its own dedicated UAP office.
The statement marks a giant leap for the administration which has previously dismissed all suggestions it had anything to do with unidentified flying objects.

The move comes a week after the House Intelligence Committee held its first public hearing on UFOs in 54 years where panel members grilled Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray (왼쪽) and Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security Ronald Moultrie (권리)
A source affiliated with the US government and familiar with NASA’s UAP research told DailyMail.com that the project will likely include gathering evidence from any astronauts who encountered unidentified objects in space, and reviewing footage and data from previous missions to help investigate any anomalous encounters.
The source added that NASA’s work will complement the Department of Defense’s UAP task force, charged by Congress with investigating the threats posed by strange objects in US airspace and beyond.
‘It’s going to be some sort of working group that will help support the DoD,’ 소식통이 말했다. ‘It’s looking to be complementary.
‘I suspect it will be a combination of efforts that will include perhaps firsthand eyewitness testimony of NASA employees and astronauts, and then perhaps a review of old archival footage to assess if there are some findings within the NASA archives that can help AOIMSG,’ 소스 추가됨, referring to the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group, the DoD’s awkwardly-named official UFO task force.
The source revealed that the Pentagon’s UFO team has already requested footage from shuttle cameras on some of NASA’s space missions as part of their investigations.
‘There have been several alleged incidents involving NASA astronauts and NASA missions that involve UAP,’ the source, who is familiar with NASA’s UAP investigations, DailyMail.com에.
‘Rather than ignoring it, I think NASA’s doing the right thing by actually taking this topic head on.’

A spokeswoman for the space administration said it has ‘consulted with multiple government entities regarding how to apply the tools of science to shed light on the nature and origin of unidentified aerial phenomena – information that is important to the agency for a scientific perspective.’
The spokeswoman, senior science communications officer Karen Fox, pointed out that aliens are not the only explanation for strange phenomena in the skies.
‘The limited number of high-quality observations of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, which includes reported objects that cannot be immediately identified by individuals, currently makes it impossible to draw scientific conclusions about the nature of UAPs,’ 그녀가 말했다.

‘NASA is evaluating how to provide our expertise in space-based Earth observations to improve understanding of UAPs.’
The administration promised it would keep DailyMail.com readers updated with its ‘next steps’.
‘NASA already has admitted it has been looking for extra-terrestrial life within our solar system,’ the government-affiliated anonymous source said. ‘They’ve just decided to focus a little closer to home this time.’
작년, the administration’s chief Bill Nelson revealed that he spoke with Navy pilots who encountered objects flying with extraordinary capabilities off the US coast in 2004, and has expressed his openness to the idea of advanced alien life.
‘I’ve talked to those pilots and they know they saw something, and their radars locked on to it,’ Nelson said in an 십월 2021 talk hosted by the University of Virginia.
‘They don’t know what it is. And we don’t know what it is. We hope it’s not an adversary here on Earth that has that kind of technology. But it’s something.’
The NASA chief said ‘I don’t know the answer’ to whether the ‘tic-tacs’ encountered by pilots are extraterrestrials, 그러나 그는 덧붙였다: ‘Who am I to say planet Earth is the only location of a life form that is civilized and organized like ours?’

UFO researchers have pored over footage from previous NASA missions which some believe show signs of intelligently controlled craft.
One of the most storied is film from September 12, 1991 shot by the space shuttle Discovery on NASA’s mission STS-48.
A camera on the shuttle caught glowing objects which appeared to fly above the earth, change direction, and accelerate rapidly off into space.
NASA told the History Channel it no longer has the footage, but researchers kept copies and have shared them publicly.
1973 mission Skylab 3 commander Alan Bean said he saw a bright red flashing object for 20 의사록, and made a note of it in his diary.
‘Out the ward room window we saw a bright red light with a bright dim period of 10 초,’ he wrote in the voyage log.
‘It got brighter and drifted along with us for 20 minutes or more. It was the brightest object we’d seen.’
His crew member Owen Garriott took pictures, and experts calculated the object to be around 600ft long based on the photos and the time it took to disappear behind the horizon.
Perhaps the most outspoken former astronaut on UFOs is the late legend Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man on the moon, who claimed a ‘cabal of insiders’ are covering up historic UFO crash retrievals and alien contact. NASA has said it does not share his views.
Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin answered a question about aliens on an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on web forum Reddit in 2014, saying he saw ‘a light out the window that appeared to be moving alongside us’ on his way to the moon.
그는 덧붙였다: ‘There were many explanations of what that could be, other than another spacecraft from another country or another world’, including sun reflecting off jettisoned panels.

Late Astronaut and former senator John Glenn, the first American to orbit earth, helped establish the DoD’s UFO office along with late senator Harry Reid in 2007.
He described seeing objects like ‘snowflakes’ or ‘fireflies’ flitting around his craft while in space. Skeptics believe they were ice crystals.
Gemini VII astronaut Jim Lovell was radioing to ground control during his 1965 mission when he said he saw a ‘bogie’, using air force terminology for a potential enemy aircraft.
‘Gemini 7, is that the booster or is that an actual sighting?’ the operator said, asking if he was seeing their jettisoned rocket boosters.
‘We have several, looks like debris up here. Actual sighting,’ Lovell replied according to a transcript of the interaction. ‘We also have the booster in sight.’
Former flight controller at the Johnson Space Center James Oberg said the object was likely space debris.
