Neil deGrasse Tyson, the amazing and all smart astrophysicist and director of the Hayden Planetarium went onto the CNN morning show New Day to discuss about the 2004 video of an unidentified flying object that was released by the Department of Defense and he offered his uniquely humorous, scientific and rational view of the whole situation. When asked if he knew what it was, Tyson hilariously replied that it was unidentified, hence the name.
People I think, have conflated the concept of a UFO with whether we’re visited by aliens. UFO means unidentified…flying…object. This is a highly non-specific term. It is so non-specific that it admits that you don’t know what you’re looking at. The universe brims with mysteries. Just because you don’t know what it is you’re looking at doesn’t mean it’s intelligent aliens visiting from another planet…Call me when you have a dinner invite from an alien.
