NASA is assembling a team to study UFOs currently classified as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP).
The agency says it wants to know more about unidentified phenomena captured by military radar that can’t be identified as Earth aircraft or any known natural aerial phenomena.
NASA says it’s interested in UAP’s because they threaten national security and air safety.
NASA, however, notes that there’s no evidence of alien life. But, the agency does not rule out the phenomena as alien.
The team will be assembled by this fall, and the lead scientist will be the former head of Princeton University’s astrophysics department.
The UAP study begins in early fall and is expected to take nine months.
The NASA team’s work will be independent of the work the Defense Department which is also studying UAP’s.
