Ready to find out if life exists beyond Earth?
If so, you probably won’t get that information today (and maybe not ever), but you can get the next best thing, courtesy of NASA. The space agency is hosting a livestream at 10 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Sept. 14 to share the findings gathered by a team it commissioned about a year ago to study unidentified anomalous phenomena, or UAP. If that term is unfamiliar to you, it’s basically the new “UFO.”
As it happens, there are a few ways for you to watch along at home:
I should continue to emphasize that there’s no reason to believe we’ll get real, juicy evidence that aliens exist or anything like that in this broadcast. NASA set up the UAP team in summer of 2022 with the goal of studying these UAPs “from a scientific perspective” and “[creating] a roadmap for how to use data and the tools of science to move our understanding of UAP forward.”
In other words, it might just be a lot of charts. Still, that doesn’t mean it won’t be interesting. Tune in to find out.
