Event: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena

Policy and Strategy for the Unknown

National Association of Scholars

What risks do Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs) pose to national, or global security? What are the prospects that mysterious objects in the sky, such as those encountered by multiple US military pilots, have otherworldly origins? Drawing from the fields of astrophysics, government, and international relations, this panel will examine the likelihood of whether UAPs are of an extraterrestrial origin, and the implications that this possibility holds for science and security.

Join the National Association of Scholars on March 31st at 2 pm ET for this special webinar event, "Unidentified Aerial Phenomena: Policy and Strategy for the Unknown."

This webinar will feature Avi Loeb, the Frank B. Baird, Jr., Professor of Science at Harvard University; Ian Oxnevad, Program Research Associate at the National Association of Scholars and author of "The Truth is Mostly Right Here: The Security Dilemma and the Earthly Logic of an Extraterrestrial Threat"; and Nick Pope, former Acting Deputy Director in the Directorate of Defence Security and former operational head of the UK Ministry of Defense UFO Program.
