NASA wants to transform satellites into ‘alien-seeking devices’ in hunt for UFOs
NASA says it is considering transforming satellites into alien-seeking devices as it ramps up the search for UFOs.
The plans would see their satellites used to probe space for unexplained sightings without NASA needing to send more equipment into orbit.
It comes as part of a much larger study into “unidentified aerial phenomena” that is set to get underway later this year.

According to The Telegraph, NASA deputing administrator Pam Melroy said during a press conference in London: "This team is going to be looking at questions like: 'Do we have sensors that can see things, you know, take another look at the evidence?'
"One of the big questions…is: ‘We have a tonne of satellites looking down at the Earth, are any of them useful?’
"I mean, before you build a rover that’s going to Mars, you ask yourself: ‘What’s the sensor I have to build to detect the most interesting thing?’ So they’re going to really focus on that.
“How would you get the evidence that you need to be able to determine if it’s an optical phenomena or some other kind [of phenomena]?”
NASA revealed its plans to study unidentified aerial phenomena last month, with space boffins already devising plans as to how to utilise the technology they already have in space.
Among other things, the study will focus on identifying available data, ways to best collect future data, and how to use that data in relation to unexplained sightings.
At this moment in time NASA say there is no evidence to suggest any unexplained sightings up until now are extraterrestrial in nature.

However, working this out this is crucial and has ramifications on national security and air safety.
Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for science at NASA Headquarters in Washington, said last month: "NASA believes that the tools of scientific discovery are powerful and apply here also.
"We have the tools and team who can help us improve our understanding of the unknown. That’s the very definition of what science is. That’s what we do."
