The US Aerospace Administration will gather an independent team of researchers this fall to study unidentified phenomena in the air (UAP). This term now refers to UFOs.
The research will be open and not secret. Researchers led by astrophysicist David Spergel will try to collect and structure current data on UAP, as well as find out how best to obtain it in the future.
NASA says the research will focus on the protection and safety of air transport. They add that there is currently no evidence of extraterrestrial origin of the UAP, but they add that due to limited observations it is still difficult to draw logical conclusions about where the UAP comes from.
In March 2021, the former US intelligence chief confirmed that there were still many secret materials about UFOs. In June of that year, US intelligence released a report on UFOs, but could not explain the appearance of these objects.
