WASHINGTON, DC - JUNE 2: In this handout image provided by the U.S. National Aeronatics and Space Administration (NASA), Administrator Bill Nelson talks to the agency's workforce during his first state of NASA event at NASA headquarters in the Mary W. Jackson Building June 2, 2021 in Washington, DC. Nelson remarked on his long history with NASA, and among other topics, discussed the agency's plans for future Earth-focused missions to address climate change; a robotic and human return to the Moon through the Artemis program; and two new planetary science missions to Venus for the late 2020s called VERITAS and DAVINCI+.

NASA Head: UFOs could be Alien technology!

In his opinion, humans are not alone in the universe—or in other universes, for that matter—as NASA’s administrator believes.

During an interview with the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics this week, Bill Nelson, the NASA administrator who was sworn in in May, came out as extremely open-minded regarding the potential of alien life.

“My own belief is that the cosmos is enormous, and there are even even hypotheses that there may be other universes out there.” Considering this, who am I to assert that the planet Earth is the sole area where a life form that is civilized and structured in the same way that we are?” Nelson shared his thoughts with Larry Sabato, a professor of politics at the University of Virginia. “Does anybody know whether there are any more planet Earths out there?” Because the cosmos is so vast, I believe this to be the case.”

Are UFO sightings evidence of the presence of alien life?

As a Florida congressman in the House of Representatives and then as a senator, Nelson has been an outspoken supporter of space exploration throughout his political career. In 1986, he became the first American to fly to space on the Columbia space shuttle.

The hunt for alien life was stressed by Nelson during his talk with Sabato, who said that Navy pilots had reported more than 300 sightings of unidentified flying objects since 2004 as a result of NASA’s investigations. He went on to say:

“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.”

Pilots’ experiences with UFOs have increased in recent years, and the United States government has grown more open about them, but it has been cautious not to imply that these sightings are evidence of extraterrestrial life.

The Pentagon’s report, released in June, did not reach any conclusions about the origins of the sightings, instead leaving open a number of other possible explanations, such as the notion that the UFOs are in fact advanced technologies from countries such as Russia or China, or that they are simply the result of natural phenomena interfering with the sensors of military planes.

Looking for extraterrestrial life is “part of NASA’s mission”

Nelson, like many others, does not claim to have any conclusive explanations. Nonetheless, it is notable that the head of the United States space agency is both open to the possibility that life exists beyond Earth and committed to the notion of NASA attempting to find answers. “Can you tell me what you believe we’re doing on Mars?” We’re on the lookout for life. According to him, “this is a part of NASA’s mission.”

Nelson, on the other hand, said that the prospect of intelligent life existing elsewhere in the cosmos only serves to emphasize the urgency of protecting our own planet from harm.

“Well, I’ll tell you what it makes me think of.” I need to be a better steward of what we have because we’re destroying it, and we’re destroying it because of the way we’re treating one another,” he remarked. “Therefore, I understand what my goal is: to be an even greater steward of this world and a better citizen of planet Earth.”

In the YouTube video included below, you may see Nelson’s whole conversation in its entirety, with his views about alien life beginning around the 53:17 mark.
