Reinvigorating Senator Harry Reid’s UAP Legacy

The death of Harry reidHarry Mason ReidReid memorial slated for January 8 in Las Vegas Nevada casinos report ninth consecutive month of internal wins B Biden orders mid-length flags for Harry Reid MORE, the longtime former Democratic senator from Nevada, was a sad reminder that we cannot stop the times train. This continues and while anticipating the end of any trip, we had better look out our train cabin windows and enjoy the ride while it lasts. Beyond the standard spectacle inside the booth of DC’s tumultuous politics, Reid dared to look out the windows and in so doing left a permanent legacy.

In 2007, while serving as Senate Majority Leader, Reid worked with Sen. Ted Stevens, a Republican from Alaska, and Daniel Inouye, a Democrat from Hawaii, to secure $ 22 million in funding for the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. The program investigated reports of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs, then called UFOs), some of which videos and photos of these meetings were made public. The government has continued to study UAP, most recently through the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Working Group.

Reid seemed to believe that there is a lot that we don’t understand about these encounters. In May, he writes, “I never intended to prove that life beyond Earth exists. But if science proves it does, I’m fine with that. Because the more I learn, the more I realize that there is still so much that I don’t know.

From my perspective as a scientist, the most unusual unclassified sighting over the past five years has been that of the first interstellar object traced near Earth, known as the “ Oumuamua, which looked different from any celestial object we had observed before. His many anomalies have led me to the intriguing hypothesis that he could be alien equipment. The immediate action item derived from this experience was to collect better data on objects of type `Oumuamua in the future, in order to identify their nature. This awareness led to the creation of the Galileo Project in July 2021, a month after the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) delivered a new UAP report at Congress. It was my way of following Reid’s legacy (an act that prompted him to declare publicly that he liked my book “Extraterrestrial” and the Galileo Project). I would have liked him to be there for another year to witness the scientific data that our new telescopes will collect.

Six months after the ODNI report, President BidenJoe Biden Roberts calls for judicial independence in year-end report Biden to meet with Ukrainian president Documents show Chinese government collecting a lot of data on Western social media: MORE report enacted law – with bipartisan support from Congress – creating a new UAP office. The office, which should be operational by June 2022, will have the power to initiate a coordinated UAP reporting and response effort and dramatically improve data sharing between government agencies on UAP sightings. This new office, which stems from Reid’s legacy, will be jointly administered by the Secretary of Defense and the Director of National Intelligence, and will allow military and civilian personnel as well as the intelligence community to report incidents and incidents. information involving the UAP.

In addition to classified data belonging to the government, the Galileo Projectthe data will be open to the public and their scientific analysis will be transparent. Related scientific discoveries would expand the knowledge of mankind, regardless of the boundaries between nations.

At present, the Galileo research team includes more than 100 scientists who plan to assemble the first telescope system on the roof of the Harvard College Observatory in spring 2022. The system will continuously record video and audio of the entire sky in the visible, infrared and radio bands, and track objects of interest. Artificial intelligence algorithms will distinguish birds from drones, airplanes, or whatever. Once the first system operates successfully, the Galileo Project will make copies and distribute them in many geographic locations.

I was recently asked why the search for alien techno-signatures would interest an ordinary person, like a taxi driver worried about paying his rent. Interestingly, Congress’ task for the new UAP office involves a scientific plan that intended to, “(1) take into account the characteristics and performances of unidentified aerial phenomena which exceed the known state of the art of science or technology, including in the fields of propulsion, aerodynamic control, signatures , structures, materials, sensors, countermeasures, weapons, electronics, and power generation; and (2) provide the basis for potential future investments to replicate these advanced features and performance. The taxi driver would care about the second element if he offered the possibility of a better paying job by driving a faster transport device.

We must continue to revise our assessment of the cosmic environment outside our train cabin as we collect new data. It was recently reported this Jeff BezosJeffrey (Jeff) Preston Bezos Best and worst crisis management in 2021 2021: More space launches than any year in history since Sputnik Elizabeth Warren went to war with SpaceX PLUS’s Elon Musk, founder of Amazon, space company Blue Origin and currently the richest person in the world, “observed that the smartest people are constantly revising their understanding, reconsidering a problem they thought they already solved. They are open to new points of view, new information, new ideas, contradictions and challenges to their own way of thinking.

The reverse must also be true: the expectation of some scientists to extricate discoveries from maintaining the traditional status quo involves a lack of imagination. Senator Harry Reid got it.
