Identify this: NASA launches UFO study


The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration has launched a nine-month study into UFOs or, as the world’s leader in space exploration calls them, UAPs (unidentified aerial phenomena).

The 16-member team includes professors, scientists, an oceanographer and others who study space—former NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and science journalist Nadia Drake among them. Their work began on Oct. 24 with an eye to the future.

“The independent study team will lay the groundwork for future study on the nature of UAPs for NASA and other organizations,” the agency said in a statement.

“To do this, the team will identify how data gathered by civilian government entities, commercial data, and data from other sources can potentially be analyzed to shed light on UAPs. It will then recommend a roadmap for potential UAP data analysis by the agency going forward.”

Overcoming mines and weather, Allied forces take back Walcheren


In September 1944, the Allies captured the port of Antwerp, Belgium, which was vital to supplying arms and materiel to the Allied forces moving from Normandy, France, to Germany.

However, Germans controlled the three islands at the mouth of the 80-kilometre Scheldt estuary in the Netherlands that lead to Antwerp. An unrelenting Hitler had seeded the river and all approaches with more than 2,000 mines and lined the riverbanks with bunkers and large gun batteries. He was determined to deny Antwerp to the Allies.

Thus followed the Battle of the Scheldt, which endured until Nov. 8, 1944.
