The reason scientists don’t talk very much about UFOs or UAPs is simple: without sufficient data, we cannot draw any meaningful conclusions. It’s very easy to throw out an idea (or a guess) as to what each of these videos might actually be…
Well, it's kinda hard to get sufficient data, when scientists like astronomers aren't paying attention.
What are you proposing, exactly? That it is the job of scientists to wait for non-scientists to hand them a definitive proof of what a scientific anomaly is on a silver platter?
The real problem here is not the drawing of fantastic conclusions, it's the lack of serious scientific investigation.
When there are unexplained flying objects in the air, it's somewhat important for someone to try to actually explain them to the general public. Isn't it? Or are we supposed to wait until a plane crashes into one of them, or one of them lands on an astrophysicist?
