Given the shifting environment surrounding unidentified flying objects (UFOs), or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) as the United States call these items, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will conduct a "full force" investigation into thousands of such encounters. noted that governments, the media, and the military have maintained a consistent hard-line stance for at least 70 years, relentlessly mocking and stigmatizing anyone who lends credence to the phenomenon of UFOs and UAPs.

However, the American space agency recently announced a nine-month investigation into unexplained aerial occurrences.

According to the Daily Star, it comes after the first U.S. congressional hearings on UFOs in more than 50 years.

"We're going full force," said NASA assistant deputy associate administrator Daniel Evans said in a town hall meeting this month (via

"This is really important to us, and we're placing a high priority on it," added Evans.

Comic Book, citing Evans, mentioned that the NASA panel will consist of 15 to 17 individuals. These include some of the top scientists, data professionals, artificial intelligence specialists, and aerospace safety experts in the world.

Evans continued by saying that it is up to these individuals to instruct NASA on how to apply the full weight of research and data to UAP.

When NASA originally revealed its plans to investigate the safety of UAP, it did so in June. The investigation will analyze current data and develop protocols for noting upcoming encounters.

Thomas Zurbuchen, the associate administrator for science at NASA Headquarters in Washington, said at the time: "NASA believes that the tools of scientific discovery are powerful and apply here also."

Zurbuchen further explained: "We have access to a broad range of observations of Earth from space – and that is the lifeblood of scientific inquiry. We have the tools and team who can help us improve our understanding of the unknown. That's the very definition of what science is. That's what we do."

If everything goes according to plan, Evans believes the study can be completed by October.

"NASA really is uniquely positioned to address UAP, because we know how to use the tools of science and data to discern what might be happening out there in the skies," Evans added. "And, to be frank, no other agency is trusted as much by the public as us."
