Why NASA Hesitates on UFO Research


NASA and the scientific community as a whole are aware of the implications of openly communicating their UFO studies.

According to Dr. Davis, the seed reason for this lies in the fact that it is because the military operations govern this coveted research. His opinion is that UFO study falls within the communication category, something the military has under its wing.

For years many scientists have avoided discussing their own hypothesis and research surrounding this topic of investigation. However, Dr. Davis is among many scientists who illustrate that this concept is shifting as more scientists are openly discussing UFO investigation.

“UFOs are real phenomena. They are artificial objects under intelligent control. They’re definitely the craft of a supremely advanced technology,” says physicist Eric Davis.

Eric Davis is a research physicist at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Austin. His accolades in the science realm include his research of light-speed travel. At present, he is studying propulsion physics; something he hopes may enable humans to travel with ease and speed through space.

Sharing his opinion about skeptics’ harsh reviews, he is aware that it is a no-go area for most.

“They’re wrong, naive, stubborn, narrow-minded, afraid and fearful. It’s a dirty word and a forbidden topic. Science is about open-minded inquiry. You shouldn’t be laughing off people. You should show more deference and respect to them … Scientists need to get back to using the scientific method to study things that are unknown and unusual, and the UFO subject is one of them.”

Davis is presenting “Faster-Than-Light Space Warps & Interstellar Flight: What’s It All About?” this Sunday at the 2013 Mufon Symposium in Las Vegas. Dr. Davis, along with many other scientists including Dr. Steven Greer, are presenting research, findings and views on various UFO topics this weekend.

So, what is the reason for the hush about scientific research into UFOs?

Dr. Evans claims he knows many colleagues who quietly investigate this area.

“There are scientists who are aware of evidence and observational data that is not refutable. It is absolutely corroborated, using forensic techniques and methodology. But they won’t come out and publicize that because they fear it. Not the subject — they fear the backlash from their professional colleagues. The impact on their career might be detrimental and they’d get bad publicity.

“It’s not an acceptable, funded line of research. The National Science Foundation does not accept UFOs as a subject for scientific study.”

It may be unknown to many, but there are multiple scientists who have been studying and investigating UFO activity, despite the respite from the scientific community.

Perhaps the real reason NASA and other big organizations have made the area of UFO investigation unpalatable is due to the fact the territory of this knowledge does not fall under the science umbrella.

“It’s the domain of military intelligence,” he proposes. “The fact that [unknown] craft are flying around Earth is not a subject for science – it’s a subject for intelligence-gathering, collection and analysis. That’s because UFOs are not a natural phenomenon, and that’s what science studies.”

In addition to being the Senior Research Physicist at the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin, Eric Davis is the Chief Scientist of Warp Drive Metrics. His past experience includes the NASA institute for Advanced Concepts and a technical contributor and consultant to the NASA Breakthrough Propulsion Physics Program.

    Steven Greer usued to sell kits to signal in ufos to appear using flashlights. He also used to charge people over $2000 to take them on a guided tour where they would see ufos. He of course picked the date, time and place. If you believe a word he says youre a fool and gullible as they come

    Dr. Greer is a respected albeit controversial character. I respect what he has done and what he has also risked to achieve it. However, my opinion of Dr. Greer is mine own & although I enjoy indulging in opinion-writing, the fact that Greer’s name is mentioned is quite simply because he is one of the scientists who attended the conference.
    Thank you for reading & enjoying!

    Humans are a sad species overall. The demand to be told what to believe, refuse to believe what evidence advises is incontrovertibly true. They worship corporations and greedy men who destroy this very tiny beautiful planets resources because chaos keeps economies afloat(usa) based on the current model Humans adhere to. They operate out of fear and control through unspeakable violence against their own kind. Its truly a miracle Advanced Life Forms have had any interest in our species at all. They have absolute intelligence and live in peace. Most humans could not understand those concepts.

    only kids and teabaggers believe in aliens…total waste of money.

      Only narrow minded people who have no conception of the mathematical drake equation dont believe in aliens.

    The fact that you mention Dr. Davis and “Dr.” Greer in the same sentence is laughable. Greer has frittered away any semblance of credibility he once had. In fact, it is the presence of people like Greer this field (of “UFOlogy”) that has only served to undermine the very point that is the locus of this article. Ask yourselves how many credible researchers are vexed by this pandering snake oil salesman (Greer). It’s sad.

    NASA who has pictures sent to them from weather stations in the area say that mornings videos are missing due to errors beyond their control

  7. michael July 21, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    the M.O.D announce they no longer want or need UFO reports since the 11th/09/2004 sighting they have all the evidence they need,

  8. michael July 21, 2013 at 3:37 pm

    fulminology is why they wont admit to UFOs using the free clean energy for galactic travel and solving all your energy crisis, its free? nobody needs to die, it cost nothing,you earthlings need to unite in using and exploring this energy, i was sent back here to educate you all,greenpeace why don’t they spend their millions on this free clean energy? soon you will all see videos taken of a huge spaceship powered by using the energy from thundery clouds? 11th September 2004 Reading Berks England.

    It is sad when scientist act like the people in the crowed who ignored the king’s nakedness because they had no spines
