In June, the White House issued the National Space Traffic Management Policy, which defends American assets in space.
James T. Abbott, author of The Outsider’s Guide to UFOs, said that new policy, combined with President Trump’s new Space Force Military Branch, means now is the time for more serious, long-term scientific research around the topic of UFOs, in support of a future Space Force.
“I think those assets are being defended on behalf of the free world, as you would call it,” says Abbott. “But the most important thing, I think, is that we’re becoming much more open and outward looking in terms of space.
“We’re talking seriously about going to Mars. We’re building some very competent pieces of kit at the moment. So I think that outward facing aspect has prompted a more serious look, too, at some of the phenomena that are called UFOs.”
Abbott says we do not know what is behind these global sightings of unidentified objects, both in the air and in the water.
“The need to find out what these things are is now becoming very pressing, and not really for defense purposes. The governments of virtually every developed nation in the world have decided whatever the phenomenon is, it is not a threat to humanity or any individual nation.”
