If you’re sky-eyed and hooked by “UFO-ology,” a number one spokesperson on the subject was nuclear physicist and lecturer Stanton T. Friedman.
As a scientist that had a critical curiosity in alien craft since 1958, he will likely be missed by researchers given his premature dying in Could of this yr on the age of 84.
In depth work
I met Friedman a number of occasions through the years, and located him charming and a plausible UFO investigator. His legacy lives on…because of the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick, Canada.
Stanton Friedman donated his invaluable analysis papers to the archive – a donation that crammed 5 cargo vans, explains Joanna Aiton Kerr of the archives.
“Because of the quantity of the fabric and the necessity to do in depth work to make it accessible to researchers it could in all probability take about 10 years with the assets we at present have accessible to deal with it,” Kerr advised Inside Outer House.
“In an ideal world, we might have two archivists engaged on it and nothing else full time,” Kerr stated, [and] if that occurred it could nonetheless take two to a few years – there may be that a lot of it.”
Kerr stated that the information are so attention-grabbing, and the curiosity from the general public is such that the archive feels the stress and must guarantee that they do every thing as shortly as they will…”nevertheless it additionally must be performed proper!”
Data can be found to researchers as they’re processed, Kerr added. “Nevertheless we’re not digitizing – this may be a mammoth process and albeit pointless till the precise paper/images, and many others, are bodily organized and listed. In any other case it could simply be an enormous digital mess.”
Friedman had posted in December 1997 that he had reached 4 main conclusions, underneath the title of “The UFO Problem”:
— The proof is overwhelming that Planet Earth is being visited by intelligently managed extraterrestrial spacecraft. In different phrases, SOME UFOs are alien spacecraft. Most are usually not.
— The topic of alien craft represents a type of Cosmic Watergate, which means that some few folks in main governments have recognized since July, 1947, when two crashed saucers and several other alien our bodies have been recovered in New Mexico, that certainly SOME UFOs are ET. As famous in 1950, it’s probably the most categorized U.S. subject.
— Not one of the arguments made towards conclusions One and Two by a small group of debunkers comparable to Carl Sagan, my College of Chicago classmate for 3 years, can stand as much as cautious scrutiny.
— The Flying Saucer story is the most important story of the millennium: visits to Planet Earth by aliens and the U.S. authorities’s cover-up of one of the best information (the our bodies and wreckage) for over fifty years.
