Ex-US Navy officer warns of ‘unidentified underwater objects’ lurking in ocean

The truth about these unidentified underwater objects needs to be researched.
  • What lies beneath the waves demands attention – we need to know more about unidentified underwater objects.
  • USOs navigate the depths of our oceans, often evading detection and raising questions about what they actually are.
  • Tim Gallaudet highlights the urgent need for research on these underwater anomalies.

You’ve heard of a UFO – unidentified flying object – but have you ever heard of a USO – unidentified underwater objects?

Whilst there’s always a lot of excitement surrounding UFO sightings, there also lies a realm of mystery beneath the waves that demands attention.

For years, the fascination with unidentified flying objects (UFOs) has captured the imagination of people worldwide.

From mysterious lights in the sky to unexplained aerial phenomena, the topic has sparked curiosity and debate.

But what about the hidden secrets of the ocean?

We still don’t know very much about what lurks down there, either.

USOs – unidentified submerged objects, to them give their full title – are mysterious underwater things that have been spotted but remain unexplained.

Sometimes they might be whales, sharks, or simply large things underwater, but other times – well – who knows?

What we do know is that no reported damage has ever come to any US Navy craft from a UFO, but USOs are a different story.

In 1978, the USS Stein might have been attacked by a giant squid, and one that could have been bigger than any we’ve ever seen, judging by the marks it left on the ship.

See, there’s stuff we don’t know about down there.

Unlike their airborne counterparts, USOs navigate the depths of our oceans, often evading detection and raising questions about their origin and purpose.

One voice raising awareness about the importance of studying unidentified underwater objects is Rear Admiral Tim Gallaudet, a former US military official and oceanographer.

In a white paper for the SOL Foundation, a prominent think tank, Gallaudet highlights the urgent need for research on these underwater anomalies.

The SOL Foundation, dedicated to advancing scientific understanding, serves as a platform for Gallaudet’s call to action.

Gallaudet’s paper underscores the potential threat posed by USOs to international maritime security.

These ‘large lighted craft’, as described by Gallaudet, could be lurking in the unexplored depths of our oceans, presenting challenges for global security efforts.

While much attention has been focused on UFOs in the skies, Gallaudet warns that the lack of research on transmedium UFOs – which can travel between, for example, the water and the sky – and USOs leaves a significant gap in our understanding of potential security risks.

These unknown objects, much like some modern military vehicles, may be capable of traveling undetected in the deep ocean waters, raise concerns about covert activities and the need for enhanced surveillance measures.

He argues that the US government’s reluctance to share information on UFOs and USOs hampers efforts to address maritime security challenges effectively.

In conclusion, while the allure of UFOs captures headlines and imaginations, it is essential not to overlook the mysteries lurking beneath the surface.

USOs represent a compelling frontier for scientific exploration and a potential security risk that demands attention. By elevating research on USOs to national priorities, we can better understand and address the challenges of our underwater world.

Perhaps instead of those unidentified flying objects, we need to have a look for unidentified underwater objects instead?
