Pentagon officials testified today in a rare congressional hearing on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs), colloquially referred to as UFOs. Avi Loeb, the Frank B Baird, Jr. professor of science at Harvard University, joined Closing Bell to discuss the ongoing hearings. Typically a subject that the government avoids, Congress is now publicly exploring the long obscured issue given that UFO interactions could potentially be a national security threat. The renewed discussion opens up an opportunity for a new partnership between the U.S. government and the scientific community to collaborate on research.
