There is no evidence that the unidentified flying objects (UFOs) seen by US Air Force pilots over the past few years are alien spacecraft. This was confirmed by US intelligence officials who, however, have not found an explanation for the phenomenon.
The report determines that neither any advanced technology produced by the US is behind the sightings. This eliminates any possibility that what the pilots saw was part of some secret American project.
Next June 25, the US Congress will receive a declassified and expanded version of the intelligence report, which will reveal other conclusions. One of the issues that will generate more debate is that there are no certainties about UFOs, evidence that can tell what they are.
For this reason, it is not ruled out that they are extraterrestrial spacecraft, reported The New York Times.
Even former US presidents have participated in this debate, as was the case with Barack Obama who commented on the subject in the program The Late Late Show with James Corden and CBS.
“Which is true, and I’m actually being serious here,” Obama said, “is that there are images and records of objects in the sky that we do not know exactly what they are”.
As the report makes clear, experts have not been able to explain the behavior of the observed phenomena: its acceleration, as well as its ability to change direction and dive. However, US intelligence does not rule out that UFOs could be experimental technology of some potential, probably Russia or China.
And in fact, there is concern in the intelligence services and the US military that China or Russia could be experimenting with hypersonic technology, with flight speeds in excess of 6,000 kilometers per hour.
For example, Moscow is known to have been investing heavily in hypersonics, believing that the technology is capable of evading US missile defense. For its part, Beijing has also developed hypersonic weaponry and displayed it in military parades.
One possible explanation is that the phenomena could be weather balloons or other devices used in research, although this theory does not hold in all cases, officials said.
In April, United States Department of Defense confirmed that photos and videos leaked to the press that were taken in 2019, where some UFOs are observed, son legitimate.
Members of the Navy, managed to capture objects in the form of triangle with flashing lights and moving back and forth between the clouds, on photos and videos, reported Sue Gough, the Pentagon spokeswoman, in a statement to CNN.
Three objects are observed, one in the shape of a sphere, another in the shape of an “acorn” and a last characterized as a “metallic airship”.
The Pentagon spokeswoman said that to maintain security and avoid revealing information that could be useful to adversaries, the Defense Department did not publicly discuss the details of the observations that were made.
“As we said before, in order to maintain the security of operations and avoid revealing information that may be useful to potential adversaries, the DOD (Department of Defense) does not publicly discuss the details of observations or examinations of reported incursions in our fields. of training or designated airspace, including those incursions ”, said Gough.
The marine said, in 2019, that “there have been a number of reports of unauthorized and / or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated airspace in recent years.”
In 2020 the Pentagon published three videos showing unidentified aerial phenomena. Clips from the United States Navy had previously confirmed that they were real.
It was ordered at United States intelligence agencies unclassified reports on UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) be delivered to congress in June.
On the other hand, Chris Hadfield, a former pilot of the Royal Canadian Air Force, the United States Navy and a former commander of the International Space Station, said in a recent interview with the CBC Radio what to adjudicate every UFO sighting with an intelligent alien life form is “complete stupidity.”
The renowned astronaut shared that and many other views on the recent debates around the report on UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) and UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) – for its acronym in English – which is about to be delivered to the United States Congress by the intelligence agencies of that country next month.
According to Hadfield, it is not unreasonable to think that there is life in other parts of the universe, which is an idea not only plausible but very entertaining to debate, as it raises important questions about the responsibility that the human species would have in the face of such a discovery, but neither should you get carried away by the paranoia of pointing to evidence everywhere.
“Obviously, I have seen countless things in the sky that I do not understand. But to see something in the sky that you do not understand and immediately conclude that it is intelligent life from another solar system is the height of stupidity and lack of logic “, he pointed.
