During an appearance at the University of Virginia, NASA chief Bill Nelson made some eyebrow-raising comments about a possible connection between military sightings of unidentified flying objects and the search for alien life.
“I talked to those pilots and they know they saw something, and their radars are stuck on that,” he told the crowd at the university, where he majored in law. “And they don’t know what it is. And we don’t know what it is. We hope that it is not an opponent here on Earth that has this type of technology.”
This is an interesting analysis in itself. But see what he said next when he started speculating directly about the search for life outside Earth:
“But it’s something,” Nelson added during the large event. “And so this is a mission we’re constantly looking for, ‘Who’s there?’ Who are we? How did we get here? How do we become what we are? How do we develop? How do we civilize? And do these same conditions exist in a universe that has billions of other suns and billions of other galaxies? ‘ It’s so big that I can’t conceive. ”
Provocatively, Nelson even conjectured that alien civilizations could be found in a parallel universe.
“Now there are even theories that there could be other universes,” added Nelson. “And if that’s the case, who am I to say that planet Earth is the only place for a civilized and organized way of life like ours?”
Of course, Nelson does not claim to have any specific information and, in all probability, was just having fun during a public appearance. It’s also not Nelson’s first time opining that there is almost certainly alien life out there somewhere.
