Thurs 10/26 – 4-9 PM UAP (a/k/a UFO) cocktail specials: Congress is finally taking UFOs, now called UAPs (unidentified aerial phenomena), seriously, 50 years after Its last hearing on the mysterious subject. Both terms mean the same, but the UAP designation carries less the taint of tin foil hat conspiracies than the old UFO did. Whatever, Congress is now taking them seriously, making the statement “UAP reports have been around for decades and yet we haven’t had an orderly way for them to be reported –without stigma—and to be investigated.” Overseen by the House Intelligence Committee’s on Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation, there is an acceptance that there are objects seen to be flying in the skies that are not recognizable and need to be studied. Monday’s session was a follow up on the June 2021’s declassification of 144 different observations, including video evidence, by Naval and other military aviators of objects. According to TIME they were flying in inexplicable ways – bobbing, weaving, changing directions with a speed & nimbleness no existing technology could manage. None produced any detectable exhaust. Some turned with a head-snapping suddenness that would have produced potentially deadly g-forces to any human who might be aboard while others appeared to dive into the ocean. The committee explored 4 possible explanations for the objects. They could be nothing at all—just errors in sensors or other instruments, though some of those sensors are human pilots themselves, who swear by what they’ve seen. They could be new weapons systems or other technology being tested by foreign adversaries such as Russia or China, both of which are known to be working on hypersonic systems capable of flying at five times the speed of sound or faster. It’s also possible the phenomena are so-called blue-on-blue sightings—American pilots spotting classified American technology. And, of course, they could, in theory, be of extraterrestrial origin.
Not to be outdone, NASA is now in the picture announcing it has selected 16 researchers to spend the next nine months studying UAP/UFO. The selected research group includes professors, scientists, an oceanographer, and others who study space – Former NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and Nadia Drake, a science journalist for National Geographic. The study, which begins today will “lay the groundwork for future study on the nature of UAPs for NASA and other organizations,” according to their press release. The organization maintains that there is no evidence yet that connects UAPs to extraterrestrial life.
