NASA UAP report finds no evidence of 'extraterrestrial origin' for UFO sightings Pt 1
Speaking at a much anticipated 10am 9/14/23 media briefing, NASA administrator Bill Nelson said: "The top takeaway from the study is that there is a lot more to learn...The NASA independent study team did not find any evidence that UAP have an extraterrestrial origin, but we don't know what these UAP are."UAP Independent Study Team - Final Report_0.pdf (nasa.gov)
The UAP Independent Study Team was established in 2022 as a nine-month evaluation of unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAPs at which time NASA issued a cautionary statement of their anticipated conclusion: "There is no evidence UAPs are extra-terrestrial in origin" NASA to Set Up Independent Study on Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena | NASA
Previous USAF UFO/UAP studies include:
- Project Mogul - The most famous UFO link to the Air Force was an incident in Roswell, NM in 1947. Forty years later the Air Force detailed it as "a balloon that was searching for Soviet Union nuclear test signals"
- · Project Sign – 1948-1949 During which time Capt. Thomas F. Mantell and his F-51 Mustang crashed into a Kentucky farm in January 1948 after being assigned to look into a report by the highway patrol of a strange object floating above a farm in nearby Maysville. Captain Ruppelt, a WWII bombardier with five battle stars, three Air Medals and two Distinguished Flying Crosses was handling all Air Force UFO investigations.

- Skyhook – Ohio State University astronomer had seen the “UFO” with a telescope and offered that it was probably a Skyhook balloon. The Skyhook balloon was a secret U.S. Navy atmospheric testing program that used high-altitude balloons to collect data.
