Scientists’ Views on the UFO Phenomenon: Can We Expect the Truth?



Ufologists Ryan Wood, Robert Wood and Stanton Friedman spent many years studying photocopies of secret documents of the Majestic-12 group that fell into their hands.

Based on a lot of circumstantial evidence and analysis of the activities of this group of officials, they came to the unequivocal conclusion that the existence and activities of this organization were aimed at secretly studying and hiding the UFO phenomenon from the public and discrediting it in the official media in order to divert the attention of ordinary people from it, creating a false pseudo-skeptical attitude to any of its manifestations.

This organization consisted of 12 people, among whom were five of the leading American scientists of the time, as well as high-ranking officials from the Department of Defense and the CIA.

With this 1947 letter, US President Truman purportedly authorised “Operation Majestic Twelve.” The existence of MJ-12 has been denied by the United States government, which insists that documents suggesting its existence are hoaxed.

One of these scientists was the American astrophysicist and astronomer Donald Howard Menzel, the author of three books refuting the existence of UFOs. In one of his official speeches, he literally stated the following:

“Firstly, these objects should not be called unidentified, we know what we are dealing with. Secondly, they usually do not fly. Thirdly, for the most part they are not even material.”

And it is no coincidence that Menzel was known as a “staunch opponent” of the theory of the existence of UFOs, because this was precisely the activity of members of the secret organization Majestic-12, who, in order to achieve their goals, fooled US citizens for many years, resorting to outright lies and forgeries.

For this purpose, various kinds of fables were even specially distributed, which were then successfully “exposed”, discrediting the phenomenon and UFOs and diverting attention from genuine UFO phenomena.

A study of the Harvard archives (namely, where Menzel taught in those years) led to an interesting find.

It was established that Menzel was engaged not only in scientific activities, but also advised the National Security Agency, the most powerful intelligence organization in the United States.

In particular, this is proved by a letter from Menzel himself, written by him in 1960 to Senator John F. Kennedy. At the same time, the US government and intelligence agencies had evidence of the existence of UFOs.

All this reveals to us the true essence of the statements of many scientific “authorities” aimed at discrediting the UFO phenomenon. And it is not at all accidental that the activities of pseudoscientific commissions in all countries are funded from the same source, the owners of which clearly do not want people to know the truth about the UFO phenomenon and secret contacts of governments with representatives of other civilizations.

Another famous American astrophysicist, Joseph Allen Hynek, who was attracted by the US government to the Blue Book UFO study project precisely because of his skepticism about the UFO phenomenon, quickly became convinced that the main task of this project was not to study, but to discredit the UFO phenomenon based on searching for explanations of UFO sightings within the framework of versions convenient for the government.

But this American scientist turned out to be honest and did not participate in fooling his own people, and therefore published his dissenting opinion, which differs from the official conclusion of the members of this commission.

Moreover, after several decades of careful study of the phenomenon, he reversed his opinion about it, recognizing that the phenomenon itself undoubtedly exists and is not “mass hallucinations” or “fictions of mentally ill people.”

Government scientist J. Allen Hynek was hired to investigate/debunk UFO sightings but ended up becoming a believer. The UFO debunker Philip Klass was tasked with discrediting Hynek.
Fortunately, A. Hynek is far from the only scientist who did not slip into outright lies, but put the truth above the interests of the forces that control modern science.

Not so long ago, the Department of Defense has created an office to track unidentified objects in space and air, under water, or even those that appear to travel between these domains.

UFOs, or as they are now known, unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) have been receiving newfound levels of government scrutiny not seen in decades.

Multiple hearings and classified briefings have taken place in the halls of the U.S. Congress in recent months, and many lawmakers have expressed concern that America’s airspace may not be as safe as we think due to the many sightings of unidentified objects military aviators and other armed forces personnel have reported.

With that in mind, the Department of Defense (DOD) announced the creation of this new office in a statement(opens in new tab) published Wednesday (July 20). The office is known as the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, or AARO, and was established within the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security.

The new office will be led by Sean Kirkpatrick(opens in new tab), who previously served as the chief scientist at the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Missile and Space Intelligence Center.

The creation of this new organization is only the latest policy the U.S. government has made in recent months aimed at gaining a better understanding of UFOs. In June, NASA commissioned a panel designed to investigate UAP, with the secondary objective of removing some of the stigma or taboo associated with the topic.

“One of the things that we tangentially hope to be part of this study, simply by talking about it in the open, is to help to remove some of the stigma associated with it,” Daniel Evans, assistant deputy associate administrator for research at NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, said during a news conference held at the time.

“That will yield, obviously, increased access to data, more reports, more sightings, et cetera. So that’s another thing that we’re trying to accomplish with it.”

Now, 60 years after Majestic 12, scientists and governments are committed to doing the same thing they did then: to study the UFO phenomenon. But the question for people remains the same: how much can they be trusted?

Extraterrestrial life may be hiding in “terminator zones”




In a study published in the Astrophysical Journal, astrophysicists set out to find out if exoplanets could support life.

Astronomers have come to the conclusion that on the surface of some exoplanets there is a strip that may contain water, necessary for the existence of biological life. The terminator zone is the dividing line between the day and night sides of an exoplanet.

Many exoplanets are planets outside the solar system held by gravity. This means that one side of the planet is always facing the star they orbit, while the other side is in constant darkness.

The water on the dark side will most likely be in a frozen state, while on the light side it will be so hot that the water should just evaporate.

The terminator zone would be a “friendly place” – neither too hot nor too cold – in which liquid water could support extraterrestrial life.

Dr. Ana Lobo of the University of California, said: “The day side can be scalding hot, much uninhabitable, while the night side will be icy, potentially covered in ice. You need a planet that’s the right temperature for liquid water.”

“We’re trying to draw attention to planets with more limited amounts of water that, despite not having widespread oceans, might have lakes or other smaller bodies of liquid water, and that climate could actually be very promising.”

“By exploring these exotic climate states, we are improving our chances of finding and correctly identifying a habitable planet in the near future.”

The researchers created a model of their climate by analyzing different temperatures, wind patterns and radiative forcing, and found the “correct” zone on exoplanets that could contain life-supporting liquid water.

Researchers who are looking for life on exoplanets will now take into account the fact that it can hide in certain areas.

Astronomers discover the strongest evidence for another Universe before the Big Bang




The notion of the Big Bang goes back nearly 100 years, when the first evidence for the expanding Universe appeared.

If the Universe is expanding and cooling today, that implies a past that was smaller, denser, and hotter. In our imaginations, we can extrapolate back to arbitrarily small sizes, high densities, and hot temperatures: all the way to a singularity, where all of the Universe’s matter and energy was condensed in a single point. 

For many decades, these two notions of the Big Bang — of the hot dense state that describes the early Universe and the initial singularity — were inseparable.

But beginning in the 1970s, scientists started identifying some puzzles surrounding the Big Bang, noting several properties of the Universe that weren’t explainable within the context of these two notions simultaneously. 

When cosmic inflation was first put forth and developed in the early 1980s, it separated the two definitions of the Big Bang, proposing that the early hot, dense state never achieved these singular conditions, but rather that a new, inflationary state preceded it. 

There really was a Universe before the hot Big Bang, and some very strong evidence from the 21st century truly proves that it’s so.

Although we’re certain that we can describe the very early Universe as being hot, dense, rapidly expanding, and full of matter-and-radiation — i.e., by the hot Big Bang — the question of whether that was truly the beginning of the Universe or not is one that can be answered with evidence. 

The differences between a Universe that began with a hot Big Bang and a Universe that had an inflationary phase that precedes and sets up the hot Big Bang are subtle, but tremendously important. After all, if we want to know what the very beginning of the Universe was, we need to look for evidence from the Universe itself.
