Former Astronaut Scott Kelly Encourages the Further Investigation of UFOs Despite the Lack of Enough Evidence

There are two types of people out there: some who are convinced that we are not alone in the Universe and that aliens are out there waiting for the right moment to pay us a visit, and others who believe the opposite, that aliens are nothing but the outcome of human imagination. There seems to be no in-between.

Spotting UFOs in the sky doesn’t represent anything new. Perhaps we’ve all seen flying objects that we can’t decipher. While that’s not necessarily the definitive proof for extraterrestrial life forms “waving” at us, what’s for sure is that not only ordinary people are concerned about the possible origin of UFOs.

Scott Kelly speaks out

Scott Kelly, a former NASA astronaut, participated in the first public meeting of a NASA study group that had unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP) as the subject of debate. During the meeting, experts discussed UAP sightings and strategies for collecting better data on the topic. Kelly had shared his own experience, recounting a moment when he and his radar intercept officer believed they had encountered a UFO while flying an F-14 Tomcat, only to discover it was a balloon shaped like Bart Simpson. interviewed Kelly after the meeting, seeking his thoughts on the current UFO/UAP buzz and its implications for sky safety and the search for intelligent alien life forms.

Scott Kelly explained as quotes:

What was it Carl Sagan said, ‘extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence’? You know, they have every right to make extraordinary claims, but without the extraordinary evidence, they’re just claims,

In a court of law, eyewitness testimony — I’m not positive on this — but that’s considered evidence. In science, it’s part of a hypothesis. It’s like, ‘Oh, we see this!’ Let’s go investigate it.

The former NASA astronaut also said, as the same source quotes:

The community of UFO enthusiasts think I’m somehow against them,

But I actually would think it would be one of the most incredible things if humans ever learned that we are not alone in this universe and that there is intelligent life that has the technology to surmount what we currently believe are the limitations of long-distance space travel because of the physics involved.

In other words, there’s still no definitive proof out there that aliens have visited us. Let’s just hope that they won’t be as evil as in the 1996 blockbuster ‘Independence Day,’ if they truly exist out there, somewhere.
