NASA has created a new position, appointing a UFO director to the “Unidentified Anomalous Phenomenon,” or UAP, after reports of mysterious objects have appeared in the sky.

Mark McInerney was appointed as the Director of UAP research at the same time the U.S. space agency stated that an expert panel found no evidence of an extra-terrestrial origin for foreign objects in a report last week.

During a press conference in Washington D.C., NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said it was important to destigmatize the reporting of UAP to increase the amount of data available to investigators.

“NASA’s very involvement in UAP will play a vital role in reducing stigma associated with UAP reporting, which almost certainly leads to data attrition at present,” the report continued. “NASA’s long-standing public trust, which is essential for communicating findings about these phenomena to citizens, is crucial for destigmatizing UAP reporting.”

The independent report determined that NASA should be using satellites and other instruments to gather more information about the phenomena.

“The NASA independent study team did not find any evidence that UAP have an extra-terrestrial origin, but we don’t know what these UAP are,” Nelson said. “That’s why I’m announcing that NASA has appointed a NASA director of UAP research. They are being tasked with developing and overseeing the implementation of NASA’s vision for UAP research. We will use NASA’s expertise to work with other agencies to analyze UAP.”

During his introductory remarks, Nelson noted that he personally believed in intelligent life elsewhere. “If you ask me do I believe there’s life in a universe that’s so vast that it’s hard for me to comprehend how big it is, my personal answer is, ‘Yes,'” Nelson added.
