On 14, September, the United States government agency NASA presented its report regarding Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) in a media briefing. 

This follows an announcement made in October of the previous year, in which NASA revealed its intention to establish an independent research team to investigate unidentified objects observed in the sky, which cannot be definitively explained.

The release of these findings today is expected to provide some clarity concerning the numerous conspiracy theories and sightings that have been reported over many decades. While some individuals might find the presented findings disappointing, others may appreciate NASA's transparency.

Presently, the research team concludes that it lacks sufficient data to draw definitive conclusions regarding the nature of UAP.

Nevertheless, the team envisions NASA assuming a prominent role in the collection and examination of UAP data, which could contribute to a deeper understanding of these phenomena.

Additionally, the team emphasizes the importance of destigmatizing UAP reporting to encourage individuals to share information about these sightings without reservations.

As part of this effort, NASA has formally ceased the use of the term 'UFO' in its primary communications concerning unidentified objects in the sky. Instead, the United States-based space agency employs the more technical name 'unidentified anomalous phenomena' (UAP). 

This shift is aimed at disassociating from the negative connotations linked to the term UFO, often associated with discredited conspiracy theories.

While today's report acknowledges UAP sightings, it provides limited insight into the recent surge in such sightings. Nicola Fox, the associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, initiates the report by characterizing UAPs as "one of our planet’s greatest mysteries.

She writes: “Observations of objects in our skies that cannot be identified as balloons, aircraft, or natural known phenomena have been spotted worldwide, yet there are limited high-quality observations,” 

“The nature of science is to explore the unknown, and data is the language scientists use to discover our universe’s secrets.

“Despite numerous accounts and visuals, the absence of consistent, detailed, and curated observations means we do not presently have the body of data needed to make definitive, scientific conclusions about UAP.”

Prior to today's report, the NASA website articulated the organization's dedication to "investigating the solar system and delving into realms beyond to assist in addressing fundamental inquiries regarding life beyond our native world."

This commitment encompassed activities like ‘studying the habitability of Mars’,  ‘studying the habitability of Mars’, and 'detecting exoplanets with Earth-like dimensions orbiting distant stars.'

The website continues: “Our science missions are working together with a goal to find unmistakable signs of life beyond Earth.”

Furthermore, in a previous article featured on the NASA website, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson argued that it would be egocentric for humans to believe we are alone in the universe.

He explained: "At the moment, life on Earth is the only known life in the universe, but there are compelling arguments to suggest we are not alone."

"To declare that Earth must be the only planet in the cosmos with life would be inexcusably egocentric of us."

Meanwhile, a NASA scientist confidently stated that there is no doubt about the existence of extraterrestrial life within our Solar System, and they are most likely hiding on Venus.
