“even if only one object is of extraterrestrial origin – it would have a huge impact on society”
It’s certainly a fascinating topic. Everyone seems to have an opinion of what these objects actually are.

Harvard prof: U.S. government report on UFOs should lead to more research on alien life
A new report from the U.S. Director of National Intelligence detailing the prevalence of unidentified flying object sightings over the past 17 years has one Harvard professor urging more research into whether humans have been visited by life forms from other planets.
“The Pentagon report delivered to Congress on June 25th is intriguing enough to motivate scientific inquiry towards the goal of identifying the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena,” Harvard Science Professor Avi Loeb told The College Fix in an emailed statement. “Some of the UAP discovered since March 2019 — when a new reporting mechanism was established by the US Navy, are likely real objects whose nature is unknown.”
According to the government report, 144 sightings of unidentified flying objects have been reported by government employees since 2004. Other than one case that was identified as a deflating balloon, each sighting has been categorized as “inconclusive.”
In 80 cases, objects were detected by multiple technological sensors mounted on military platforms — but as the report acknowledges, the sensors “are not generally suited for identifying UAP.”
The report says some objects “appeared to remain stationary in winds aloft, move against the wind, maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernable [sic] means of propulsion.”
“Most UAP might have mundane explanations, but even if only one object is of extraterrestrial origin – it would have a huge impact on society,” Loeb said. “As we have learned from the discovery of quantum mechanics a century ago, experimental anomalies are the precursor for progress in our scientific knowledge.”
