WATCH: NASA Releases Highly Anticipated UFO Report

NASA has unveiled its highly anticipated report on UFOs and the UAP phenomenon.

The report ultimately concluded what various officials and government agencies have been parroting for years: we don’t have definite evidence that these are extraterrestrial, but we have no idea what they are.

Scientists for the civilian-led space agency informed the public that they need more data to arrive at a better understanding of exactly what these objects are and where they come from.

As part of those efforts, the agency has appointed a director of UAP research. While the NASA report itself was not particularly interesting, comments made by NASA Director Bill Nelson were.

Nelson kicked off the UFO panel with a short address that I highly encourage you to check out. You can watch the full conference below:

Prior to the historic NASA press event, News Nation spoke with UFO documentary filmmaker James Fox to get his perspective on the hearing.

NASA stated in this press release:

In response to a recommendation by an independent study team for NASA to play a more prominent role in understanding Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP), the agency announced Thursday it is appointing a director of UAP research.

The study team’s full report, which includes a foreword from NASA noting the new role, is available on the agency’s website.

NASA commissioned the independent study to better understand how the agency can contribute to ongoing government efforts to further the study observations of events in the sky that cannot be identified as balloons, aircraft, or as known natural phenomena from a scientific perspective.

“At NASA, it’s in our DNA to explore – and to ask why things are the way they are. I want to thank the Independent Study Team for providing insight on how NASA can better study and analyze UAP in the future,” said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson.

“NASA’s new Director of UAP Research will develop and oversee the implementation of NASA’s scientific vision for UAP research, including using NASA’s expertise to work with other agencies to analyze UAP and applying artificial intelligence and machine learning to search the skies for anomalies. NASA will do this work transparently for the benefit of humanity.”

The report contains the external study team’s findings and recommendations which aim to inform NASA on what possible data is available to be collected and how the agency can help shed light on the origin and nature of future UAP. The report is not a review or assessment of previous UAP incidents.

While NASA is still evaluating the report and assessing the independent study team’s findings and recommendations, the agency is committed to contributing to the federal government’s unified UAP effort by appointing a director of UAP research.

A NASA liaison to the Department of Defense previously covered limited UAP activities for the agency, and the director role will centralize communications, resources, and data analytical capabilities to establish a robust database for the evaluation of future UAP.

The director also will leverage NASA’s expertise in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and space-based observation tools to support and enhance the broader government initiative on UAP.

The independent study team’s overall recommendation for NASA from its report is that the agency can play a prominent role in the government’s effort to understand UAP by furthering the study and data collection of UAP.

The external study recommends that NASA use its open-source resources, extensive technological expertise, data analysis techniques, federal and commercial partnerships, and Earth-observing assets to curate a better and robust dataset for understanding future UAP.

NASA also will advance citizen reporting by engaging with the public and commercial pilots to build a broader, more reliable UAP dataset to use to identify future UAP incidents as well as destigmatize the study of UAP.

NASA Director Bill Nelson’s comments were especially interesting and warrant further examination. It seems that Nelson is a believer, yet doesn’t have the tools or the directive to prove it in an official, scientific manner.

Nelson had this to say:”We are searching for past and present signs of life, exploring and questioning why things are like this.”

CBS News highlights this claim made by Director Nelson and NASA:

“The top takeaway from the study is that there is a lot more to learn,” NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said at a briefing about the findings.

“The NASA independent study team did not find any evidence that UAP have an extraterrestrial origin. But we don’t know what these UAP are.”
