NY Times Article: The Pentagon’s Mysterious U.F.O. Program. Is this a New Paradigm Shift?

by Martin Willis

Since I started this show in 2011, never have I seen anything like what happened over the weekend! Jokingly, I told Alejandro Rojas that ‘my email was ringing off the hook’. Past guests, both Leslie Kean and Ralph Blumenthal along with New York Times Pentagon Correspondent, Helen Cooper took one small step, that was a giant leap in how people look at the topic of UFOs.

A few days in, and now all of mainstream media has taken the plunge, the people who never even thought about the topic are suddenly talking about it.

I commend all the people involved as well as the NY Times for having the courage to publish the what will be a snowball effect of interest.

For this week’s show, I am reaching out to the authors, and so far have heard back from Helen Cooper who declined by stating that she is ‘too tapped out’.

Update on Chilean UFO

The Chilean government agency always makes its cases public when an investigation is complete, and acknowledges the existence of UAP when a case merits such a conclusion.

UFODATA – A Way Forward in UFO Science

mark leslieAt UFODATA we seek to create a systematic, rigorous science of UFO phenomena. Such a science is needed because of misplaced certainties on both sides of the UFO debate: “believers” convinced that UFOs are extraterrestrials, and “skeptics” equally convinced that UFOs do not even exist. Our own view is that humanity knows very little about the true nature of unexplained UFO reports, and that the only way to resolve this lack of understanding is through serious scientific study. This is now possible for the first time in the history of UFO research as a result of an unprecedented convergence of high resolution digital camera technologies, off-the shelf scientific instrumentation, powerful low-cost computing platforms, and ubiquitous high-speed internet access.  Check out: ufodata.net

Then guest, Dr. Michael Shermer
