The UFO Phenomenon

Aerospace group pushes for UFO investigation

An association of more than 30,000 aerospace industry specialists is calling for further study of UFOs.
Earlier this year the US government's long-awaited UFO report, which was entitled 'Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena', was issued by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) to provide "an intelligence assessment of the threat posed by unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) and the progress the Department of Defense Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) has made in understanding this threat."

Since then, several prominent figures, groups and agencies - including NASA and Harvard University's Galileo Project - have called for further investigation into the subject.

Now the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) - which has more than 30,000 members - has joined calls for a more detailed investigation into the phenomenon.

The main reason for this is a concern for the safety of passengers and flight crews.
"We need everyone's help on this, and we just do it in a way that is transparent," former US Navy Pilot Ryan Graves said during the AIAA's annual convention on August 6th.

"Because, at the end of the day, you know, like I said, very pragmatically, you know, we're flying around objects out there at hundreds of miles an hour with people's families on board."

"It's just a matter of time, frankly [before we have a collision]."

"I'm surprised it hasn't happened already."

@ThereWeAreThen & @HandsomeGorilla the article gives this link, but you can’t access it unless you’re a member: the August 6th panel that took place during the AIAA’s annual I’d be interested to see the whole thing to give context. I feel that the OP article is pushing chaff rather than wheat.

honestly, I was just speaking on general terms, I can't see it, either

They may be open questions for those that haven't been following the subject closely from a suitable position. However, the way I see it, it all  ultimately boils down to the practical level, it has to, which at this present moment leads to the question "What good is this particular kind of intel to you, or the general public?" I mean how much of it is actionable by the average Joe, and in what ways. None. There is a reason information of this kind is shared exclusively on a need-to-know basis. What would YOU do with it? Do you have a REAL need to know, other than your preceived self-importan... [More]

You sound like a conspiracy crackpot. It’s a bit telling when your whole post is vague conjecture. Any chance you can follow up your above post with something of substance?

When it comes to collision odds, I think the odds are really really slim if these are alien crafts...unless there has been crashes and we were not told. My way of thinking is if these crafts (assuming these are alien crafts) have amazing max speeds and acceleration capabilities, shown to have extreme maneuver ability, its reasonable to assume these crafts have collision prevention systems. Also it means they're technologically far ahead of us.  Personally I think the best course of action would be to stick to a flight plan and just observe, analyse and report. Anything else leave it to the mi... [More]

Probably doesn't help you killed those two brain cells with your breatharian nonsense.

That was deep.

And this is why i declined to interview with MUFON. I don't like that they want to collect what people know without telling us what they know and what exactly they are doing with what they know. The fact that they can discern which cases carry credibility means they are already aware of a lot of components and I want to know it all too.

That makes as much sense as someone saying in 1960 "But why do YOU need to know how a computer works or how to make code for it?" Roll on 60 years and a third of the population can now build computer programmes and apps that have completely changed and improved our lives.  By understanding what these things are, how they work and so on, will allow future generations to study it and develop using it. A billion people working on a problem works far better than a few thousand in a secret lab.  And as for the Taliban having energy weapons..... it would be difficult for them to develop superior w...

I think if these 30k aerospace industry specialists are so motivated, they should create and fund their own investigation. That way they can't say the government was hiding something. If anything of merit is discovered or observed they can then use it and their report for submission to the general public and scientific community for review.
