It's not hard to minimize the significance of a so-called 'Apollo senior scientist' who would have been -- do the math -- 17 years old [or so, what do you think?] at the time of the moon landing, wouldn't you agree? And he seems to have been relaying rumors about
astronauts not talking about "the UFO subject" in public [heck, even Cooper reported that, as being due to all the nonsensical fabrications in the popular press], without Baker actually ever claiming that any astronauts saw any UFOs during any space flights. Or did I miss that claim?
You seem to LIVE for the ambiguity of quotation snippets that YOU can then try to force YOUR interpretation on, related to "what he was trying to say" -- but didn't, despite your best efforts at misinterpretation and over-imagination.
