In a recent bombshell scientific paper, Harvard astronomer and head of the Galileo Project Avi Loeb joined forces with Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, the director of the DoD's All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office to make the argument for "physical constraints" they say can be applied to unidentified aerial phenomena. 

"Claims of objects exceeding the transonic to supersonic range," the authors argue in the paper, should be studied based on the "known physics of ionization, radar reflectivity, temperature, sonic booms, and fireballs." Avi Loeb joins us to discuss this unique paper, as well as the equally novel collaboration that produced it, and how it could provide significant benefits to future studies involving UAP, on this week's episode of The Micah Hanks Program.
