NASA builds team to research Unidentified Aerial Phenomena

NASA selected 16 individuals for a new independent study team to investigate Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, the agency announced on Friday.

The group, which consists of prominent professors, researchers, and scientists, will start their research on Monday.

They will examine unclassified data in order to provide the groundwork for future UAP studies.

Unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs), sometimes known as unidentified flying objects (UFOs), are occurrences or objects in the sky that are not aeroplanes or any recognised natural phenomenon.

Thomas Zurbuchen, assistant administrator of the Science Mission Directorate at NASA headquarters in Washington, stated that "exploring the unknown in space and the atmosphere is at the heart of who we are at NASA."

"It is essential for us to comprehend the information we have on unidentified aerial phenomena in order to make scientific deductions about what is taking place in our sky.
