"Now, we are in the midst of a discovery of even greater magnitude, but few are even acknowledging it. And incredibly, it is what many regard as the modern icon of quack science - unidentified objects, traditionally labeled UFOs, that may represent technological equipment manufactured by an advanced extraterrestrial civilization."
In the Earth's atmosphere, objects are observed with great regularity - visually and on radar - whose origin is unknown and which are highly likely to have been artificially made. To develop a theoretical explanation the physical charcteristics of these objects must be known. For this purpose, scientists of IGAAP (Interdisciplinary Society for the Analysis of Anomalous Phenomena) have already collected more than 1,800 cases from literature and witness testimonies which contain descriptions of certain interactions between these objects and the environment. IGAAP's objective is to search for new physical theories which can help to explain the characteristics as well as the origin of these objects. IGAAP escpecially emphasizes the assistance of witnesses who made contact with unknown phenomena.
IGAAP was shaped by its long-standing chairman, the physicist and pioneer of German UFO research Illobrand von Ludwiger, who passed away in July 2023. He had been studying these phenomena for over 50 years and had published numerous books on the subject.
IGAAP is an associated member of IFEX (Interdisciplinary Research Center for Extraterrestrial Studies) at the Julius-Maximilians-University of Würzburg.
