The new head of NASA is not happy with the unconvincing report of the Pentagon on UFOs.
Newly installed NASA administrator Bill Nelson said their investigation into unidentified aerial phenomena is just beginning: His team intends to create its own research efforts on footage from high-speed flying objects spotted by naval aviators over the years, he told CNN Business.
Nelson added that he did not think there was any evidence to suggest that aliens were involved, saying, “I think I would know,” but acknowledged that it was too early in their study to rule out the possibility.
“We don’t know if he’s an alien. We don’t know if he̵
Nelson’s statement comes when insiders close to the Pentagon’s long-awaited UFO report inform the public that US intelligence has not found credible evidence that aliens are behind any of the observations. The former Florida senator and space veteran also said that NASA will plan to share any new information that is not visible to national security officials.
The shocking footage, which became key evidence in the upcoming report, was first published in public in 2017, at which time the New York Times revealed numerous UFO sightings from the U.S. military, along with hints that the government has long held dossier such strange aerial events.
The former national security official, who reported the reports, has since accused the government of campaigning against him.
Luis Elizondo, former head of the Aerospace Threat Pre-Identification Program, told The Post in April: “There are people in the Pentagon who still don’t like me very much. I think they made me angry about the way I left, “he said, referring to the 2017 Times.
NASA spokesman Jackie McGuinness confirmed to CNN Business that Nelson has not yet formally set up a task force, although Nelson appears to be laying the groundwork for research.
“In fact, there is not much data and … scientists should be free to follow these guidelines and they should not be stigmatized,” McGuinness added. “It’s a really interesting phenomenon and Americans are obviously interested in it [so if] scientists want to explore, they should. “
During a news conference Wednesday, according to CNN, NASA’s Associate Science Administrator Thomas Zurbuchen explained that he was also skeptical that the fleet’s footage would show extraterrestrial technology.
“People tend to underestimate nature,” he said, acknowledging that scientists could not rule out undiscovered natural phenomena. “Nature is an amazing place where many miracles happen.”
