UFO Disclosure: Could Trump Space Ambitions Signal Bombshell Announcement?

UFO disclosure has been a long-time goal of UFO researchers. Disclosure, for quick reference, is the idea that the government will at last acknowledge contact with, or visits from, alien civilizations. Disclosure activists have dismissed concerns about the effects on human civilization of potential contact, arguing that the human race has a right to know who, or what, is visiting Earth. Perhaps most importantly, these UFO researchers and activists ask, why is Earth being visited?

Recent announcements by President-elect Donald Trump could signal a massive shift in how the government talks about UFO sightings and contacts. Bob Walker and Peter Navarro, two senior policy advisors to Trump, outline a vision of NASA that focuses on deep space research, exploration, and a strengthening of defense projects in space. They also outline an aggressive and efficient way to accomplish these goals through public partnerships with private companies like Space X. That’s great news for science, but also great news for UFO disclosure advocates.

For science, the new focus on deep space exploration, fully funded and operating with larger budgets for research and development, could provide information about our solar system than what science knows now. It could signal new data for physicists to hone their understanding of space, time, gravity, and more. It could revolutionize our understanding of biology, geology, and metallurgy. The warp speed proof of concept model developed by NASA can be seen in the video below, and it’s a great candidate for further study in Team Trump’s vision of NASA.

For UFO disclosure advocates, that translates into more equipment, cameras, and people in space. With so much traffic going up, so too should UFO sightings. That would provide more data to study, and more ammunition to argue for disclosure. It could, by accident, create a scenario for open contact with non-government officials if a private company were to induce contact.

But what makes Walker and Navarro’s piece so provocative for UFO disclosure advocates is the argument for space tourism. Private citizens toting cameras into space would be perfect candidates for finding that “smoking gun” picture of a UFO that would force disclosure. All of the scenarios listed in the piece point to multiple avenues for the discovery of extraterrestrial life.

Of course, all of that speculation excludes one option. What if all of this talk about deep space exploration, humans in space via tourism, and the ultimate conclusion that this is a precursor to colonization in space, became a kind of stepping stone to an imminent press conference where the government spills the beans about the entire UFO phenomena? This could be the signal being given by Trump’s space team.
