Last month, we reported that former Navy lieutenant Ryan Graves https://interestingengineering.com/former-navy-lieutenant-used-to-see-ufos-all-the-time">revealed https://interestingengineering.com/former-navy-lieutenant-used-to-see-ufos-all-the-time">his experience with what may potentially be alien aircraft.

Graves reported that he and other members of his F/A-18 fighter squadron detected what could be UFOs in the restricted airspace southeast of Virginia Beach nearly every day for two years beginning in 2015. The military refers to these crafts as unidentified aerial phenomena or UAP.

The Federal Aviation Administration has continuously dismissed such incidents, even though it can't always explain them. Now, it seems NASA is taking a stab at exploring UFOs or UAPs.

According to CNN, NASA's new chief is planning to further study unidentified flying objects within his first month in office. Bill Nelson, the former Florida senator and spaceflight veteran, said in an interview to CNN that no one knows what the high-speed objects observed by Navy pilots are but that he does not believe they are evidence of extraterrestrials visiting Earth.

"I think I would know" if that were the case, Nelson said. 

"We don't know if it's extraterrestrial. We don't know if it's an enemy. We don't know if it's an optical phenomenon," he added. "We don't think [it's an optical phenomenon] because of the characteristics that those Navy jet pilots described ... And so the bottom line is, we want to know."
