  • The Scientific Study Of UFOs
    balloons Twenty four appendices give the flavor of U S government handling of UFO reports from the late 1940s through the late 1960s Critics such as Dr J Allen Hynek USAF con sultant on Project Blue Book and Dr James E McDonald a University of Arizona atmospheric physicist stated the Condon Report was a setup to rid the USAF of its public relations nightmare and that some allegedly explained cases were actually unknowns respectively See web site http www ncas org condon for the complete study on line Condon 1969 The 1968 Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects is presented complete with graphics equations and photographs This was the final report of a US Air Force funded university study per formed by Edward U Condon et al It is sometimes called Project Blue Book named after the Air Force structure for handling UFO reports prior to 1966 Published review of Terry W Colvin in Fortean Times The U S Air Force beat a hasty retreat out of the official UFO business following an independent evaluation of its work by the University of Colorado Headed by physicist Edward Condon the two year Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects drew three conclusions 1 UFOs didn t represent a technology beyond the 1969 level of understanding 2 they didn t threaten national security and 3 continued study of the phenomenon probably wouldn t contribute anything to modern science Condon 1969 Statement by Dr McDonald The Condon Report released in January 1968 after about two years of Air Force supported study is in my opinion quite inadequate The sheer bulk of the Report and the inclusion of much that can only be viewed as scientific padding cannot conceal from anyone who studies it closely the salient point that it represents an examination of only

  • Insufficient Data - UFOs
    Zuick E R 1974 May Should the USAF Reopen Project Blue Book Retrieved December 5 2003 from http www cufon org cufon afrstdy1 htm This study evaluates factors related to the USAF investigation of Unidentified Flying Objects in an attempt to determine whether or not additional UFO investigation is warranted The approach to analysis taken by this study was twofold one writer evaluated evidence justifying the closure of Project Blue Book while the other writer evaluated evidence supporting its reopening Based on the evidence uncovered the study concludes that there is a definite need for a new UFO investigation The study recommends that such an investigation should be a scientific undertaking free from bias political pressure and USAF or DoD Dept of Defense jurisdiction The official Air Force explanation regarding the Hills UFO sighting turned out to be almost as erratic as the radar and visual sightings themselves The official explanations in this particular case included weather inversion the Planet Jupiter optical condition and finally insufficient data This study recommends a new UFO study should be initiated under the guidance of a congressional sub committee No Defense Department agencies should be directly involved in the study A national UFO organization should be created whose membership is comprised of scientists and astronomers with respected professional reputations and proven ability Fascinating this apparent anti USAF study was written by a Major and a Captain in the U S Air Force at Maxwell Air Force Base Alabama WWW Site 3 Clemence G M Crane H R Dennison D M Fenn W O Hartline H K Hilgard E R Kac M Reichelderfer F W Rubey W W Shane C D Villard O G 1969 Review of the University of Colorado report on unidentified flying objects by a panel of the National Academy of Sciences Retrieved December 5 2003 from http www project1947 com shg articles nascu html It was not the task of the Panel to conduct its own study of UFOs or to invite advocates scientifically trained or not of various points of view to hearings The task was to study the University s Report and to assess First its scope namely did the Report in the opinion of the Panel cover those topics that a scientific study of UFO phenomena should have embraced Second its methodology namely did the Report in the opinion of the Panel reveal an acceptable scientific methodology and approach to the subject Third its findings namely were the conclusions and interpreta tions warranted by the evidence and analyses as pre sented in the Report and were they reasonable Ten chapters are devoted to perceptual problems processes of perception and reporting psychological aspects of UFO reports optics radar sonic boom atmospheric electricity and plasma interpretations balloons instrumentation for UFO searches and statistical analyses Twenty four appendices add detailed technical background to the study In our opinion the scope of the study was adequate to its purpose a scientific study of UFO phenomena Resource Type Selected Article Book Magazine Other

  • Mystery SETI Signal Set Rules Of Engagement
    astronomers came face to face with a profound mystery that they didn t want to be true At one point they half seriously thought about destroying the data and staying stone silent That s because announcing it to the world could open a Pandora s box for science and derail at least one astronomer s PhD thesis A small group of radio astronomers in the United Kingdom had stumbled upon clock precision radio pulses coming from deep space The signal was unlike anything ever seen before or even predicted in astronomy In the absence of a natural explanation the researchers pondered for three long weeks whether this was really a hello from an extraterrestrial civilization The team faced a cultural black hole with regard to the public response How do you verify the signal How do you announce it to the world Do you send a reply to the stars or is that too dangerous As is the case in our compulsive universe nature was cleverer than imagined This story of mistaken identity as recently researched by Alan Penny of the University of St Andrews set the stage for preparing a SETI protocol for how to announce the discovery of

  • Russell Crowe Conquers Google Snooze - Cox
    tinyurl com c5e3aah Friday March 8 2013 Russell Crowe Conquers Google Snooze by Billy Cox What s up with the UFO desk at Google News Do we really need to scroll nine pages deep to get past the redundant references to Russell Crowe s UFO video At least that s where the links finally mercifully begin to taper off But this thing stopped being news after about three pages and has transitioned to fetish For the record it s truly cool that RC wasn t afraid of the pix whatever the thing is assuming he s not goofing on us and that he chose to hang it out there Nothing draws a crowd like an Academy Award winner s idiosyncrasies Celebs can be as insufferable as anonymous mortals but underestimate their ability to persuade at your own peril On the other hand while it d be great to think there d be a way to convert this latest buzz into a larger conversation that would actually require effort without any guaranteed returns De Void feels a little strange about raising this next point because it ll sound pathetic and self serving More at site Listen to Strange Days Indeed The
