Here are the ingredients for a legit UFO test according to Reddit
UFO sightings, long the fodder of sci-fi lovers, may soon become a topic of clear-headed debate as Senate leaders push for public disclosure of records on “unidentified anomalous phenomena” (UAPs). The things that make up a successful UFO test can be daunting, but it seems one UFO test in particular has the Senate interested. Is this the UFO test we have all been waiting for?
Let’s dive into this cosmic conundrum and the legislative steps being taken to crack it.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senator Mike Rounds are joining forces in an unprecedented bipartisan move to demystify UFOs. The duo is proposing an amendment, tailored after the 1992 law governing the release of records related to JFK’s assassination, which could compel the U.S. government to disclose records about possible UAP sightings.
This proposal is far from frivolous. It’s part of sweeping defense funding legislation that Congress is currently considering for the fiscal year starting in October. With Schumer’s influence among Democrats and Rounds’ clout as a member of both the Senate’s Intelligence and Armed Services committees, their proposal stands a good chance of getting attention.
Schumer and Rounds argue it’s high time we had a peek into the unknown. For decades, Americans have been captivated by the unexplainable. The proposed amendment is geared towards ensuring “a presumption of immediate disclosure”. This means the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration would need to gather UAP records from all pertinent government offices and justify any decisions to keep these documents under wraps.
Rounds emphasizes the importance of credibility in any investigation or record keeping related to UAPs. The proposed measure asserts that the government should have the authority over any technologies of unknown origin and any evidence of “non-human intelligence”. After all, the truth, no matter how out-of-this-world, belongs to the people, not to private entities.
Schumer’s involvement in the UAP disclosure push is, in a way, a nod to the late Democratic Senator Harry Reid, who was an early advocate for investigating UFO sightings.
Historically, the U.S. government was dismissive of UFO sightings, often relegating them to the realm of imagination. However, this stance started to shift around 2021 when the government released an unclassified report detailing observations, primarily from U.S. Navy personnel, dating back to 2004.
This change in attitude wasn’t just a one-off event. The Pentagon and NASA have taken active roles in investigating numerous unexplained sightings reported by military aviators, despite the stigma and lack of high-quality data around these enigmatic occurrences.
A landmark report on UFOs released by the U.S. government underscored the national security implications of these unexplained sightings. This document was compiled by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, in association with a Navy-led task force established by the Pentagon, and covered 144 observations, mostly from U.S. Navy personnel, of UAPs dating back to 2004.
The growing concern
The report asserted that the unidentified aerial phenomena clearly pose a flight safety issue and may challenge U.S. national security. There isn’t a single explanation for all the sightings, and the report admitted to a dearth of sufficient data to identify these flying objects’ nature conclusively.
As we step into this uncharted territory, are we on the brink of uncovering the truth? Or will the mysteries of the universe continue to elude us, taunting us with their tantalizing enigma? Only time will tell. Or maybe, will the universe itself tell us first?
