MEDIA ADVISORY M22-083
NASA to Discuss New Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Study Today
NASA will host a media teleconference at 1 p.m. EDT today – Thursday, June 9 – to discuss a new study team the agency is commissioning to examine unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs). The purpose of the study is to examine UAPs – observations of events in the sky that cannot be identified as aircraft or known natural phenomena – from a scientific perspective.
Unidentified phenomena in the atmosphere are of interest for both national security and air safety. Establishing which events are natural provides a key first step to identifying or mitigating such phenomena, which aligns with one of NASA’s goals to ensure the safety of aircraft. There is no evidence UAPs are extra-terrestrial in origin.
Media interested in participating in the call should send their full name, media affiliation, email address, and phone number to Joshua Handal at: joshua.a.handal@xxxxxxxx by noon today.
