Scientists have been very interested in trying to find out if extraterrestrial life exists in another corner of the universe, increasingly striving to find evidence not just on a planet but anywhere in space. And in a new move to bolster their research, the JAR will use some satellites already in orbit to also function as “UFO hunters”so that more artifacts work in search of new life outside of Earth.
The US space agency’s plan is to use some of the equipment that is already in space so that it not only fulfills its original function but can also become machines capable of detecting suspicious activity at examine. “unidentified aerial phenomena”.
That initiative isn’t expected to kick off until later this year, but the team’s experts are already hatching big plans to repurpose the technology already orbiting our solar system.
“This team is going to look at questions like, ‘Do we have sensors that can see things, you know, take another look at the evidence?'”said Pam Melroy, NASA assistant administrator. “One of the big questions is, ‘We have a ton of satellites looking at Earth, are any of them useful? “”.
Melroy also explained that this will serve to better manage the resources that are both on Earth and in space, commenting that while those found in orbit are useful, those that can be created on our planet can be used for other purposes. other purposes.
According to The Sun portal, NASA revealed its plans for the study of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena in June, commenting that focal points will include identify available data, best practices for future data collection, and how to use them to advance the science of unexplained sightings.
Moreover, he showed that this project is not only intended to find out if there is life in space but also to strengthen the safety data concerning the airspace.
