Pentagon's new UFO report fails to answer 4 big questions


But then, what were those programs? Here's the most intriguing and potentially important question that the Pentagon study leaves us wondering: What exactly are the secret divided programs that whistleblowers and the government are witnessing? misidentified Being related to UAP technology? In fact, whether the Pentagon, intelligence community, or defense contractors are working on it, from one or two distant concentric circles inside the shadowy world of SAP, reverse-engineers technology that looks out of this world and even That is also studying so-called “non-human biology”?

There are at least four obvious possibilities.

Secret technology from foreign nations

First, what exotic technological possibilities have been recovered from the unknown worldly Source? For example, if the government is working on reverse-engineering technologies, those technologies may be from advanced rival nation-states such as China, Russia, and Iran, and perhaps even quasi-ally countries such as Israel, which are involved in their own technology-sharing. May be more limited. With America. What have other countries mastered that we have not?

A question of 'peculiar features'

Second, what technologies has the US mastered that the public is not aware of? One of the common explanations for UFO sightings over the decades is that secret military aircraft and spacecraft are in development or not yet publicly acknowledged. For example, the CIA estimates that more than half of reported UFO sightings in the 1950s were from U-2 spy planes. And the AARO report spends half a dozen pages explaining how confusion over the next generations of secret U.S. government aircraft contributed to the great space game of telephone of UFO programs inside the government, including the modern Predator, Reaper, and Global Hawk drones. Have given. , AARO investigated a claim where a witness reported that a former US military service member had touched down with an extraterrestrial spacecraft, but when they tracked down the service member, they said the conversation was likely a distorted version of what happened at the time. He touched down the F-117 Nighthawk. Covert fighter at a secret facility.

Of course other stealth craft are still in testing and development, including the B-21 stealth bomber, which had its first test flight in November and is now being tested at Edwards Air Force Base in California, as well as others that We don't have to know about. The government may still surprise us with unknown craft – such as the until then unknown modified stealth helicopter released to attack Pakistan to kill Osama bin Laden. And some of these still classified efforts are possibly even generating UFO illusions: AARO sorted out a witness's claim of seeing a UAP with “strange characteristics” at a specific time and place and were able to determine, ” The interviewee at the time said that he had observed that during the incident, the DoD was testing a SAP-protected platform. The seemingly strange features reported by the interviewee matched well with the characteristics of the platform, which was being tested at that time frame. It was being conducted at a military facility in the U.S. when the interviewer was present there. So what was that craft – and what were its “weird characteristics”?

Relatedly, the US military has a classified spacecraft, the And its previous, sixth mission lasted a record-breaking 908 days in orbit. The Pentagon has said remarkably little about what it has been doing there over the years. What secret space-related or aviation-related programs is the government running that outsiders mistake for alien spacecraft?

a physical matter

A third potential area of ​​technological development that might seem related to UFOs to outsiders is more speculative basic research and development: what propulsion systems or materials-science breakthroughs are defense contractors working on right now that could shape our collective future? can change? Again, AARO found that such confusion was occurring: after hearing from a witness that “aliens” had witnessed a secret government test, AARO explored the allegation and found that “the conversation likely involved a test and evaluation unit. The reference given was nicknamed 'Alien'. Meaning at the specific installation mentioned. The nature of the testing described by the interviewee closely matches the description of specific materials testing explained to AARO investigators. So what materials were being tested there?

The AARO report includes some intriguing materials-science breadcrumbs. It found an example where “a private sector organization claimed to have material from an extraterrestrial spacecraft recovered from an accident at an undisclosed location in the 1940s or 1950s. The organization claimed that the material has the ability to act as a THz frequency waveguide, and hence, can exhibit 'anti-gravity' and 'mass reduction' properties under suitable conditions. Ultimately, however, the new report concluded, “AARO and a major science laboratory concluded that the material is a metal alloy, terrestrial in nature, and possibly USAF.” [US Air Force] Origin, based on characterization of its contents.

a knowledge limit

The fourth and last category is actually the category of weird: leading scientists in physics say we should be humble about how little we actually understand about the universe; As Harvard Astronomy Chair Avi Loeb points out, effectively everything we've learned about relativity and quantum physics has unfolded in one human lifetime, and astonishing new discoveries continue to surprise scientists. Just last summer, scientists announced that for the first time they had detected gravitational waves in the universe that ripple through space-time, and astrophysicists suspect that the universe is even weirder than we think. (The Italian astronomer Carlo Rovelli last year predicted the existence of “white holes” that would be related to black holes, which, he pointed out, were still a mystery when he was just starting his career 25 years ago.) )

The answers here can be almost unfathomably strange – think parallel dimensions or the ability to travel at a fraction of the speed of light. And one of the most interesting questions left by the UAP “game of telephone” is whether there really have been amazing advances in physics that can be realized by government scientists, defense contractors, or research laboratories or centers that are even visible from the outside. Could be related to UFOs.
