NASA’s new chief, Bill Nelson, is setting up an investigation to further study the existence of unidentified flying objects within his first month in office, CNN Business reports.
- NASA’s new chief is launching an investigation to further study UFOs.
- There is no evidence that UFO sightings are of alien origin, but NASA is not ruling it out.
- “The bottom line is, we want to know,” the chief told CNN.
In an interview with the news outlet, Nelson said it’s still a mystery to everyone – even those at the top of the space agency – what exactly the high-speed flying objects detected by US Navy personnel are.
Nelson said he does not believe that UFOs point to evidence of extraterrestrials visiting Earth. “I think I would know” if that were the situation, he said. But he accepted it would be hasty to rule that out as a possibility.
