美国国防部发布的UFO视频是否重要?

  On Monday,the US Department of Defense officially released three videos depicting encounters between Navy pilots and unidentified aerial phenomena.These events occurred in 2004 and 2015,but the videos didn't publicly surface until The New York Times included them with a front-page story about the Pentagon's“mysterious UFO program”in 2017.The Navy previously acknowledged that the videos are authentic,but the Pentagon never authorized them for release.Now it has.

  周一,美国国防部正式发布了三段录像,描绘了海军飞行员与未知航空现象的相遇。这些事件发生在2004年和2015年,但直到《纽约/时报》将它们录入有关五角大楼2017年“神秘的UFO计划”的头版故事之后,这些视频才公开露面。海军先前承认这些视频是真实的,但是五角大楼从未授权他们释放,直到现在这些视频得以重见天日。

  三个视频中的每个视频都包含海军飞行员拍摄的录像

  Each of the three videos contains footage captured by Navy pilots that show a strange-looking oval zipping through the air and over the ocean.In a video from 2015 called“Gimbal,”a flying object shaped like a Tic Tac whips through the clouds before it slows and begins to rotate.The pilot filming the encounter describes it over the radio as“a fucking drone,bro.”In another video from 2015,referred to as“Go Fast,”a small white speck is tracked by a jet's infrared system as it flies low over the ocean.The oldest video,“FLIR1,”is also from a jet infrared system and shows an oval object rapidly accelerating.

  这三个视频中的每个视频都包含海军飞行员拍摄的录像,这些录像显示出看起来奇特的椭圆形物体在空中快速飞过,越过海洋。在2015年发布的名为“Gimbal”的视频中,一个形状像Tic Tac糖的飞行物体穿过云层,接着开始变慢并开始旋转。拍摄该视频的飞行员在电台上将其描述为“这该死的无人机,兄弟。”在2015年发布的另一段视频中,“Go Fast”是一架白色斑点飞行物,当它低空飞过海洋时,被喷气机的红外系统对其进行了跟踪。最古老的视频“FLIR1”也来自喷气式飞机的红外系统,显示出一椭圆形物体正在迅速加速。

  The videos were originally published by The New York Times and To the Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences,a company founded by former Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge to research UFOs and other unexplained phenomena.When the videos were released in 2017,To the Stars staffers claimed that the footage had“been through the official declassification review process and has been approved for public release.”

  这些视频最初由《纽约/时报》和到恒星艺术与科学学院出版,该公司由前Blink-182代表汤姆·德隆格(Tom DeLonge)创建,旨在研究不明飞行物和其他无法解释的现象。影片于2017年发行时,“到恒星艺术与科学学院”工作人员声称,这些录像“经过了官方的解密审查程序,并已获准公开发行。”

  “All videos were previously reviewed by the cognizant DOD authority under the 1910 process and were cleared for‘unrestricted release'by the Defense Office of Prepublication Security Review,”says Luis Elizondo,To the Stars'director of government programs and services.Elizondo is a former Department of Defense employee who claims to have led its Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program,the“mysterious UFO program”alluded to in the Times report.The“1910 process”refers to the Defense Department form 1910 used to request clearance to release DOD information to the public.

  “所有录像带先前都是由国防部当局根据1910年程序进行审查的,并由出版前安全审查防卫办公室更改为'无发行限制',”到恒星艺术与科学学院政府计划和服务总监路易斯·伊里桑多说。伊里桑多是美国国防部的一名前雇员,声称曾领导其高级航空航天威胁识别程序,这是《泰晤士报》报道中提到的“神秘的UFO程序”。“1910流程”是指国防部1910表,用于请求许可以将国防部的信息发布给公众。

  But in their statement this week,Pentagon officials describe the 2017 release as“unauthorized.”Three years later,the DOD is finally ready to authorize the videos…even though they've already been watched by millions of people.“After a thorough review,the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems,and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena,”Department of Defense officials wrote in a press release published on Monday.

  但五角大楼官员在本周的声明中称2017年版本为“未经授权”。三年后,美国国防部终于准备好对这些视频进行授权…即使已经有数百万人观看了这些视频。国防部官员在周一发布的新闻稿中写道:“经过全面审查,美国国防部已确定这些未分类视频的授权发行不会透露任何敏感的功能或系统,也不会影响随后对因身份不明的航空现象而入侵军事空域的任何调查。”

  So does the official authorization of these videos mean the Pentagon has finally admitted that aliens exist?Nope.For starters,anything the military labels“unidentified”is not necessarily extraterrestrial.It's just something in the sky that military officials can't explain—civil and military pilots see unidentified aircraft all the time.Could they be piloted by little green men?Sure,if you have an active imagination.But usually they turn out to be something much more mundane—an atmospheric illusion,an undisclosed military drill,a satellite,or evidence of a tired pilot's brain playing tricks on them.

  那么,这些视频的官方授权是否意味着五角大楼最终承认了外星人的存在?不。对于初学者来说,军事标签上“不明身份”的任何东西不一定都是外星人。只是军事官员无法解释在天空中的是什么东西,而且民用和军用飞行员也经常看到不明飞机。他们可以由小矮人驾驶吗?当然,如果您有如此活跃的想象力的话。但是通常情况下,它们只是一些很普通的情况,例如大气幻象,未公开的军事演习,人造卫星或疲惫的飞行员产生了错觉。

  In the case of the videos released this week by the Pentagon,it's still unclear what's in them.As a Department of Defense staffer notes in the press release,“the aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as‘unidentified.'”The flying objects in the video might be aircraft,but if they are,they don't move like any aircraft we're familiar with.Audio from the 2015 video suggests that even the pilots who filmed it couldn't understand what they were seeing.“What the fuck is that thing?”one of the pilots asks over the radio.

  至于五角大楼本周发布的视频,目前尚不清楚其中包含什么。正如国防部工作人员在新闻稿中指出的那样,“视频中观察到的空中现象仍然被表征为'未识别'。”视频中的飞行物体可能是飞机,但如果是的话,它们不像我们熟悉的飞机那样移动。2015年视频中的音频表明,即使是拍摄该视频的飞行员也无法理解他们所看到的。“那东西到底是什么?”一名飞行员在收音机里问。

  If these were evidence of extraterrestrial activity,or even just advanced military aircraft built by another country,one would expect that the Pentagon would classify those videos faster than you can say“Freedom of Information Act.”But here's the thing:The DOD described the videos released this week as unclassified,which is not the same thing as declassified.Unclassified means that the military never thought the information was sensitive enough to slap national security restrictions on it in the first place.Instead,the press release said the Pentagon“is releasing the videos in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real,or whether or not there is more to the videos.”

  如果这些是外星人活动的证据,或者甚至是另一个国家制造的先进军用飞机的证据,那么人们会希望五角大楼对这些视频进行分类的速度比您所说的“信息自由法”要快。但这就是问题:国防部将本周发布的视频描述为未分类,这与解密是不同的。未分类意味着军方从未认为该信息足够敏感,因此一开始就对其施加国家安全限制。相反,新闻稿说,五角大楼“正在发布录像带,以消除公众对流传下来的录像带是否真实,或者录像带是否还有更多的误解。”

  Ultimately,the release of these videos is nothing more than the Defense Department giving them an official stamp of approval.But that doesn't mean the mystery is finished.“This historic acknowledgement will cause a seismic shift in the attitudes and stigma surrounding these events,allowing more reputable institutions to openly share reliable data for research,”says Elizondo.“It will be looked at for years to come as a fundamental step in gaining people's trust.”

  最终,这些视频的发布无非是国防部给他们的正式认可印章。但这并不意味着谜团已经结束。伊里桑多说:“这一历史性的承认将导致围绕这些事件的态度和污名发生巨大变化,从而使更多的知名机构能够公开共享可靠的数据进行研究。多年来,它将被视为获得人们信任的基本步骤。”
