NASA holds first ever public meeting on the topic of UFOs

The four-hour talk summarized the agency's findings after it launched an investigation into the phenomenon a year ago.
The panel, which was comprised of 16 experts including astronaut Scott Kelly, met up at NASA's headquarters in Washington on Wednesday to discuss anything and everything to do with UFOs.

Sadly, those hoping to hear details about specific US military encounters with UAPs were left disappointed as no such details were provided, although the panel did reveal that the US Department of Defense's All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office had received over 800 sighting reports.

Only a small fraction of those, however, could be considered genuinely anomalous.

During the event, members of the public were also given the opportunity to ask questions.

One person brought up the issue of whether NASA would even disclose evidence of extraterrestrial life if it happened to find it, or if it would keep it a secret from the general public.
Astrobiologist Dr David Grinspoon was keen to emphasize that NASA would be "highly driven" to share such evidence and referenced the finding of possible signs of life in a Martian meteorite in 1996 (this was later debunked, although some still believe that the findings were the real deal.)

"If we discovered something, we would try to make sure we were right and then we'd loudly and proudly let the public know about it," he said.

On the topic of UFOs, Dr Daniel Evans, assistant deputy associate administrator for research, wanted to make it clear that - so far, at least - they'd seen no evidence that UFOs are extraterrestrial.

"I want to emphasize this loud and proud: there is absolutely no convincing evidence for extra-terrestrial life associated with unidentified objects," he said.

The main take is that there’s not enough evidence to support ET.

If someone still believes this kind of communication, he is still dumb enough to believe in Santa Claus...

I mean, anything to distract people from what's happening at the southern border, Donetsk, etc.
