Kevin Knuth on UAP & UFO Flight Performance

June 5, 2021| Antigravity, UFOs|3 Minutes|By AAG

We’re joined by Dr. Kevin Knuth, Associate Professor of Physics at University at Albany, to discuss his quest for evidence-based answers for the UAP phenomenon. Some of the speaking points we’ll be covering include:

In September 2019 he published, “Estimating Flight Characteristics of Anomalous Unidentified Aerial Vehicles” co-authored by Robert M. Powell and Peter Reali. In that paper, he described UAPs as reportedly being “structured craft that exhibit ‘impossible flight characteristics’. We’re going to drill down on that statement, and explore the “5 observables of UAPs“, which are positive lift, Sudden Acceleration, Hypersonic Velocity without Signatures, Trans-Medium Travel, and Low Observability.

In the Entropy paper, his team did analysis on the 2004 Nimitz Tic Tac encounters, and describe these craft as having “ Estimated accelerations range from almost 100 g to 1000s of gs with no observed air disturbance, no sonic booms, and no evidence of excessive heat,” and, ”observed flight characteristics of these craft are consistent with the flight characteristics required for interstellar travel”. We’re going to explore the implications of these statements, and the underlying assumption that if UAPs are in fact capable of intersellar travel, then they are likely to actually be vehicles of extraterrestrial origin.

Speculation on these vehicles seems to suggest they are either secret black project aircraft, extraterrestrial spacecraft, time-traveling humans, or something from another dimension. We’ll be discussing which of these possibilities he feels is the most likely based on existing evidence, and whether there is reason to think that any terrestrial government could be capable of designing an aircraft that would match UAP reported performance.

Additionally, we’ll be touching on his description of UAPs as appearing to “violate the laws of physics in that they do not have flight or control surfaces, any visible means of propulsion apparently violating Newton’s Third Law, and can operate in multiple media, such as space (low Earth orbit), air, and water without apparent hindrance, sonic booms, or heat dumps.”
