NASA's study of mysterious UFO sightings in skies to answer if aliens exist

The team is set to begin work in the later half of this year and will spend no more than USD 100,000 on the venture.

Almost a month after a public hearing was held in the US almost after a 50-year gap on UFO sightings, NASA is gearing up to begin a study of mysterious sightings in the sky.

The space agency has announced plans to form a team to explore 'high-risk, high-impact science'.

Addressing the elephant in the room, NASA's science mission chief Thomas Zurbuchen said the scientific community may see venturing into the controversial topic as a 'kind of selling out', but their 'belief is that the biggest challenge of these phenomena is that it's a data-poor field'.

NASA will aim to sort the data gathered as part of the study and identify best ways to gather future data. The team will also assess the publicly available data to check the veracity of the claims of 'mysterious sightings'.
