UFOs and the Stories We Tell About Them

UFO Realistic

UFOs have long fascinated us. Although most reports of UFOs have terrestrial explanations, they have spawned a good deal of speculation about extraterrestrials. The many ways in which we try to make sense of UFOs are just as interesting as the UFOs themselves!

Come listen to our panel of multidisciplinary experts from departments across Pitt's Dietrich School to get perspectives about how people in the middle ages might have conceptualized UFOs, how misinformation persists about ETs building ancient edifices, how our cognitive processes and biases work in making sense of UFOs, the likelihood of travel from exoplanets, the latest on a US intelligence report on UFOs, and how to detect nonsensical claims.
