Widespread interest in unidentified aerial phenomena, as well as their possible nature and origins, has surged since 2017. World governments, scientists, and civilian organizations have all begun to weigh in on the matter, with the latest effort being announced by NASA, which plans to conduct its own study of the phenomena beginning in late 2022. 

However, with the question over UAP and their origins also comes the question of intent: if some of these UAP are intelligently-controlled, technological devices, then what is their purpose, and what are the motives and intention of their operators? This week on The Micah Hanks Program, we explore these questions and analyze what UAP behavior in some of history's most well-documented cases might convey about their possible intent.
