NASA leader’s UFO sightings explanation out of this world: ‘We hope it’s not an adversary here on Earth’

Bill Nelson, NASA Administrator under the Biden administration, is making headlines after acknowledging the existence of unexplained aerial phenomenon (UAP) in a Tuesday interview– and giving credence to the idea that they could be operated by alien life forms.

Nelson was addressing the unidentified objects seen by Navy pilots in a sit-down interview with Larry Sabato from the University of Virginia Center for Politics. The conversation turned from a massive asteroid strike on Earth to UAP’s.

While the NASA administrator can’t say for certain what the UAP’s seen by Navy pilots are, he said, “We hope it’s not an adversary here on Earth that has that kind of technology.”

“Before we leave, I haven’t even talked about the search for extraterrestrial life. What do you think we’re doing on Mars? We’re looking for life. This is a part of NASA’s mission. That’s what this telescope is gonna be looking for. Are there other planets elsewhere that there is life? I know what you’ve seen is what those Navy pilots saw in 2004, and there have been some 300 sightings since then,” Nelson told Sabato, suggesting the possibility of alien life forms.

The NASA administrator said he has spoken with the Navy pilots from the footage, and they know they saw something.

“Their radars locked onto it, and then all of a sudden it was here on the surface and then it’s there,” Nelson said pointing up.

While the government has remained unable to identify the flying crafts, Nelson reiterated that researchers are hopeful that the UAP’s are not attributable to an adversary on Earth. Instead, they’ve begun to ask more existential questions.

“And they don’t know what it is, and we don’t know what it is. We hope it’s not an adversary here on Earth that has that kind of technology. But it’s something. And so, this is a mission that we’re constantly looking — what, who is out there? Who are we? How did we get here? How did we become as we are? How did we develop? How did we civilize? And are those same conditions out there in a universe that has billions of other suns in billions of other galaxies — it’s so large I can’t conceive it,” the NASA administrator explained.

Sabato asked Nelson whether he thought the sightings were caused by China, Russia, or “extraterrestrial intelligent beings.”

“I don’t know the answer to that,” Nelson replied, “But I do know this, that my personal opinion is that the universe is so big, and now, there are even theories that there might be other universes, and if that’s the case, who am I to say that planet Earth is the only location of a life form that is civilized and organized like ours?”

Pointing to the vastness of the universe, the NASA administrator affirmed that there are likely other “planet earths out there.”

In June of this year, an assessment by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence of 144 reports of UFOs originating from U.S. government sources between 2004 and 2021 was released. The report was briefer than most hoped, but found 80 craft were observed with multiple different sensors, most interrupting planned military operations.

The report also found that “a handful” of the UFOs “appear to demonstrate advanced technology” and “in 18 incidents, described in 21 reports, observers reported unusual UAP movement patterns or flight characteristics.”

Government officials maintain that if UAP’s are attributable to another nation, it would create a frightening reality here on Earth as they would “represent a national security challenge if they are foreign adversary collection platforms or provide evidence a potential adversary has developed either a breakthrough or disruptive technology.”

Nelson is far from the only official acknowledging the possible existence of UFO’s.

Navy pilots such as Cmdr. Dave Fravor, Lt. Cmdr. Alex Dietrich, former Lt. Ryan Graves, former head of the U.S. government’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, Luis Elizondo, and a former deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence, Christopher Mellon all told 60 Minutes that they believe UFO’s are real.
