MYSTERY WIRE – NASA Administrator and former Senator Bill Nelson and other agency executives held a press conference at the agency’s headquarters in Washington, DC on Wednesday, June 2, and answered a question on a unidentified aerial phenomenon.
The question was from David Smith of The Guardian, it was the second of a 2 part question. Before Nelson answered the unrelated part one, Smith asked, “What did you expect from this report on unidentified aerial phenomena?” Does anyone here have any idea what this might say and if this is something that NASA might be involved in or get involved with in the future?
The first thing Nelson did was admit that he had heard of PSUs before in his “old role with Intel and the Armed Services Committee.” And I spoke to these pilots.
The video below is the exchange after Nelson answers the first part of the question.
So the second part of his question was about an unidentified aerial phenomenon, do you mean the work of NASA identifying extraterrestrial life?
Bill Nelson – Administrator of NASA
Do you want me to talk about it? Well I just want you to know what you’ve seen on TV lately, in the Navy movies. I had been aware of this as a former member of Intel and the Armed Services Committee. And I spoke to these pilots. And they think it’s real. So I had spoken to Thomas, Dr Z, about what we could specifically do from a scientific point of view, besides an Intel point of view, to try to shed some additional light on this. Do you want to comment on that?
Dr Thomas Zurbuchen – Associate administrator in the Scientific Mission Directorate
Yeah, listen, I mean, I’m glad that in the realm of science we all talk about unidentified issues, and things and whatever before, that’s what we do. We find something with our observatories, by looking at the sky by looking at the earth, and we are going to analyze it. We have, you know, history is full of examples of things that have been identified, or been called UFOs, you know, certain types of clouds, you know, phenomena, better phenomena that way. And, and for me, I personally think that when we look at the origin of life and other worlds, then look at, and really what we, what we, especially at the molecular level, you know, and bacterial, which is what we really use the tools of science for, the kinds of questions that focus on life elsewhere, are very much in the realm of what we do using the tools of science. We will therefore do all we can to advance our understanding. In many cases all I just wanted to say what we’ve learned so far over the past few decades is that people tend to underestimate nature. Nature is an amazing place where many miracles happen. That, you know, once we figure it out, it’s like, why didn’t we think about it? But the point is, there is an amazing science yet to be discovered. We’re committed to continuing to do that, especially as we embrace new tools, whether it’s James Webb, whether it’s, you know, you know, Dragonfly’s outer missions, to look at life in others. worlds.
Kathy lueders – Associate administrator for exploration and human operations at NASA
But if anyone knows how to design a spaceship like this, I’d love to talk to them.
