‘Better communication, coordination, and possibly regulation needed’ for aerial objects, says former defence minister
David Pratt says he believes NORAD had no option but to take down the objects to prevent them from posing a danger, but Janice Stein says nations need to notify each other when they launch weather balloons which should have electronic signatures. 'This is called governance.'
U.S. President Joe Biden said on Feb. 16 that according to the intelligence community’s assessment, the three aerial objects 'were most likely balloons tied to private companies, recreation, or research institutions studying weather or conducting other scientific research.'
