NASA's Recent Take On Space Visitors

Actor William Shatner, a.k.a. "Captain James T. Kirk," from TV's legendary Star Trek pop-culture franchise, at 90-years-old, recently became the oldest-living human being to catapult into space, with Amazon king Jeff Bezos.

According to the Washington Examiner, the head of NASA had suggested this week that some UFOs may be extraterrestrial life forms or beings from an alternate universe.

Bill Nelson, who has served as President Joe Biden’s NASA administrator since May, said he could not identify a recent band of flying objects recently observed by Navy pilots. Nelson clarified, however, that "we hope it’s not an adversary here on Earth that has that kind of technology,” when addressing the potential of a large asteroid hitting Earth.

“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?” Nelson said near the end of a wide-ranging hourlong conference with Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics. “I know what you’ve seen is what those Navy pilots saw in 2004, and there have been some 300 sightings since then.”

In 2020, videos from the Navy, released through the Freedom of Information Act, showed UFOs flying at astounding speed, displaying remarkable movement in the air.

John Brennan, who served as director of the Central Intelligence Agency under former President Barack Obama, suggested the existence of UFOs on a podcast last December. "Some of the phenomena we’re going to be seeing continues to be unexplained and might, in fact, be some type of phenomenon that is the result of something that we don’t yet understand."

Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe also mentioned in a June interview that UFOs exist, adding they appear to display technology the United States does not possess and lacks the ability to defend against.

Captain Kirk, please stand by.
