UFOs and Science

Why don’t astronomers see UFOs? If there are indeed unidentified aerial phenomena in our skies, shouldn’t the scientists tasked with watching the stars see them more often? In truth, some astronomers actually have seen UFOs… although many, if not most, are fairly dismissive of the idea that intelligently controlled objects of unknown origin are coasting around in our skies.

That’s not the case with Chris Impey, a University Distinguished Professor of Astronomy and Associate Dean of the College of Science at the University of Arizona. Impey is a past Vice President of the American Astronomical Society and is also the author of the book Talking About Life, which explores what is arguably the greatest question of all: are we alone in the universe? However, this week Professor Impey joins us to talk about another topic: unidentified aerial phenomena, and why he believes more scientists should be studying this mystery, on this week’s edition of The Micah Hanks Program.
