The case against UFOs has not been put to rest. Although UFO "officially" do not exist, reports of sightings continue to be made, and the internet is filled with thousands of photos and videos of them. Although the scientific world has put UFOs out to pasture, the evidence used to dismiss them is extremely scanty and unscientific.
Dr. Hynek, a scientist himself and the only government-paid ufologist in history, looks at the decisions made by officialdom in the early days of ufology, and how these have held us back - to the point that we are still naively talking about UFOs as we were talking about them in the 1950s. Has 70 years of research made no difference at all in our understanding?
Dr. Hynek proves that there is a conspiracy afoot to hide the facts, and that there are many cases that still need to be explained by mainstream science - not dismissed with facile jokes and stupid logic. Citing specific cases, Hynek challenges those in the ivory tower by raising questions that have still not been answered, and refuting mainstream arguments that have yet to be proven.
In "The UFO Experience," a scientist of impeccable qualifications takes on his colleagues. This special edition also features an introduction by another impeccable scientist, Jacques Vallee.
J. Allen Hynek served as official astronomical consultant to the U.S. Air Force's Project Blue Book. He was an astronomer and Professor of Astronomy at Ohio State University, and later became chairman of the astronomy department at Northwestern University in Chicago. Hynek started The Center For UFO Studies (CUFOS) in 1973, and was largely responsible for the founding of MUFON (originally called the Midwest UFO Network).
Jacque Vallee received his Ph.D. in computer science in 1967, from Northwestern University, and is the real-life model for the French scientist played by Francois Truffaut in Steven Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," the groundbreaking 1977 film on which Hynek also served as consultant.
