NASA’s recent commitment to studying UAPs was met initially with optimism. Finally, a leading scientific institution was wading into a topic that had largely been relegated to the fringes of serious scientific discourse. However, as the specifics of NASA’s approach surfaced, a glaring omission became evident—the agency seemed to have no intention of examining the vast catalog of UAP data collected over 80 years. The decision is not only perplexing but raises serious questions about the agency’s methodology and perhaps even its integrity.
If NASA’s mission is to bring scientific rigor to the study of UAPs, then dismissing decades of data seems counterintuitive. Scientific research often builds upon past discoveries, and existing data could serve as a crucial foundation for new investigations. This would also be an optimal use of resources. Parsing through historical data with modern analytical tools like Artificial Intelligence and machine learning could yield valuable insights, potentially accelerating our understanding of these phenomena. By sidelining these existing resources, NASA essentially forgoes an opportunity to validate or nullify years of observations and research, some of which could be pivotal to current investigations.
There is also the troubling aspect that limiting the scope of their study to data from 2004 onward seems arbitrary. What is the rationale behind neglecting years of military pilot testimonies, radar tracking, and even reports from astronauts who have encountered unexplained phenomena in space? This isn’t just an omission; it’s a gaping hole in the study’s methodology that begs for scrutiny.
What makes this strategy even more bewildering is that by sidelining historical data, NASA is deviating from its own established methods. In fields like astronomy, climatology, and even space exploration, researchers typically hunger for more data, relishing the chance to uncover patterns or anomalies from the past that could inform present studies. The deviation in strategy when it comes to UAPs is glaring.
This leads us to the more uncomfortable questions. Could NASA’s reluctance to include past data be driven by a fear of what that data may reveal? Are they concerned that diving deep into the annals of UAP history might unearth inconsistencies, or worse, deception on the part of the government and even NASA itself? If the existing data supported the narrative that there’s ‘nothing to see here,’ then incorporating it into the current study should only strengthen their case. On the other hand, if the data contains revelations that conflict with that narrative, then it becomes ethically and scientifically imperative that it be included in any serious study.
In many ways, the decision to ignore past data while championing a new era of transparency sends conflicting messages. On one hand, NASA is telling the public that they’re committed to the truth, but on the other hand, they’re not willing to use all available resources to find it. It gives the impression of selective transparency, where openness is offered but within tightly controlled parameters that they dictate.
NASA’s decision to sidestep decades of UAP data is more than a mere oversight. It raises significant concerns about the agency’s dedication to a comprehensive and sincere inquiry into one of the most puzzling scientific questions today. The agency’s seeming reluctance to include historical data might be rooted in practical considerations, or it could be a calculated move designed to control the unfolding narrative. Regardless, for an organization now openly engaged in UAP research, such an omission is an unsatisfactory way to seek the truth, and it leaves us questioning the motivations behind this ostensibly groundbreaking study.
