NASA has chosen 16 individuals to join its independent study team on unknown aerial phenomena (UAP).
The space agency classifies observations of sky occurrences that cannot be attributed to aeroplanes or well-known natural phenomena as UAPs.
The nine-month independent research gets underway on Monday, October 24.
According to NASA, the independent study group will create the framework for future research on the characteristics of UAPs for the organisation and other groups.
They will describe various methods for analysing commercial data, data from other sources, and data collected by civilian government agencies in order to learn more about UAPs.
Following that, they will provide a plan for future agency UAP data analysis.
