In this episode, whilst many of us talk about ‘UFOs’, we take a fresh look at the rebranded term ‘unidentified anomalous phenomena’ (UAPs). This comes as NASA investigates many years’ worth of seemingly out of this world sightings.

Dr Chris Pattison is a research software engineer at the ’s Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation, and also hosts a popular YouTube channel discussing all things ‘space’ (link below). In this podcast, you’ll hear how NASA is getting on with its probe into UAPs, how some supposed evidence of alien lifeforms can have hilarious real-world explanations, and how technology is being used to search for extraterrestrial life.

We’d love you to be part of the discussion, too. Email your questions on this episode or ideas for future episodes to lifesolved@port.ac.uk.
