NASA have released an official report detailing the findings of their study into UFOs, or Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) as they're calling them.

It's what those who've been looking up into the sky and wondering whether what they see up there is really a UFO have been waiting for.

According to the study from NASA, they're 'in an excellent position to contribute to UAP studies within the broader whole-of-government framework' and have a plethora of tools to detect and study them.

However, the report claims that 'UAP data is hampered by poor sensor calibration, the lack of multiple measurements, the lack of sensor metadata, and the lack of baseline data'.

A likely excuse if they were trying to keep the conspiracy around the UFO secret from the rest of us, and also a list of quite understandable reasons why the world's most prestigious space agency, isn't sure what they know.

NASA's report says that AI will become an 'essential tool' for identifying UFOs as machines can look 'within vast datasets' to pluck out potential clues.

The space people also say that 'engaging the public is also a critical aspect of understanding UAP' and the report recommends that NASA look into setting up a crowdsourcing system for people to submit their own data.

This way, everyone in the world could become part of NASA's UFO hunting team.

Ultimately, the NASA report says they just don't have enough information to make a decision on the existence of UFOs, but they'll keep looking.

It says: "Despite numerous accounts and visuals, the absence of consistent, detailed, and curated observations means we do not presently have the body of data needed to make definitive, scientific conclusions about UAP."

Despite this, they still think NASA's place in learning about UFOs, or UAPs as they like to call them, is to have a 'leading role' in gathering and analyzing the data that comes in.

NASA also wants to reduce the stigma associated with UAP reporting, so people will feel more comfortable coming forward with information when they do spot something.

The report says there have been 'many credible witnesses' who have seen things in the sky which they can't explain and the right approach is to properly collect and analyze the data that comes in from these sightings.

NASA also says that at the moment what's really holding them back is more to do with 'the quality of data than by the availability of techniques'.

Sorry gang, if you were hoping NASA would show you all the aliens they've found then you're just going to have to wait.
