NASA takes it seriously: it will create a UFO investigation team | Digital Trends Spanish

The POT is determined to start its independent investigations of the phenomenon UFOsince this Thursday, June 9, he announced the creation of an office that will be in charge of studying unidentified aerial phenomena.

“NASA believes that the tools of scientific discovery are powerful and apply here as well,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for science at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “We have access to a wide range of Earth observations from space, and that is the lifeblood of scientific research. We have the tools and equipment that can help us improve our understanding of the unknown. That is the very definition of what science is. That’s what we do”.

The agency is not part of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force the Department of Defense or its successor, the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group. However, NASA has coordinated extensively across the government on how to apply the tools of science to shed light on the nature and origin of unidentified aerial phenomena.

The agency’s independent study team will be led by astrophysicist David Spergel, who is president of the Simons Foundation in New York City, and previously chairman of the department of astrophysics at Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey. Daniel Evans, the assistant deputy associate administrator for research in NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, will serve as the NASA official responsible for orchestrating the study.

“Given the dearth of observations, our first task is simply to collect the strongest dataset we can,” Spergel said. “We will identify what data — from civilians, governments, nonprofits, businesses — exists, what else we should try to collect, and how best to analyze it.”

NASA also commented that it will publicly deliver the information it finds:

“In accordance with NASA’s principles of openness, transparency, and scientific integrity, this report will be shared publicly,” Evans said. “All NASA data is available to the public, we take that obligation seriously, and we make it easily accessible for anyone to view or study.”
