UFO drama 'Blue Book' inspired by real events

'Back to the Future' director Robert Zemeckis will be producing a new TV series about Project Blue Book.
The science-fiction series, which is set to air on 'History' (formerly 'The History Channel'), will be the latest attempt to combine a TV drama with real-life events relating to the UFO phenomenon.

The actual Project Blue Book was an in-depth study of unidentified flying objects carried out by the US Air Force in the 1950s and 1960s. Its goal was to determine whether or not UFOs were a threat to the United States while also scientifically analyzing all known data about the phenomenon.

Little is currently known about the specific plot and setting of the new series but it is believed to center around a college professor who becomes involved in the investigation of UFOs.

"Rarely have I been associated with a project that is a perfect fusion of historical fact and extraordinary entertainment," said Zemeckis.

"We are grateful for A+E Studios' and History's support for what I know will be a fabulous series."

Interesting Yet when the many thousands of files on UFOs are presented to the public , manyare redacted . One wonders why ? Why these files even exist in the first place , should make you think of why they do .

I wonder if it isn't a chicken/egg thing too. When documents are released that contain redacted information, it's human nature to want to fill in the blanks with their imagination. I'm not making a case for or against E.T.s, I just find the idea that so many people believe it with little/no tangible evidence fascinating. The same with ghosts, magic, etc.

People who don't believe in aliens are displaying a breathtaking arrogance, because they bizarrely believe that, even though there are thought to be around 1 trillion trillion planets in the observable universe, humans are the only highly intelligent lifeforms.

There are some who do that, sure. But a skeptic has to take in other factors too. The insurmountable distances between stars, the the vast time scales at play ( a billion years could elapse between the rise and fall of civilizations around a star), the likelihood that our star is even noticed in the backwaters of the Milky Way, the fact that mostof the evidence presented in the last 6 decades has an earthly explanation. And even if the evidence doesn't have an explanation yet, Occam's razor says that it's mostly likely an as-yet-unknownterrestrial phenomenon. Skepticism isn't arrogance, it'... [More]

Given the distances involved, and probability of other lifeforms not only being at a similar level of technological development as ourselves (within, say, 1,000 years?) but also very. very, similar in terms of biology and chemistry, I find it far more likely that physical UFOs are human time travellers or from a parallel universe, than from another planet.

Just because they are insurmountable to humans at the present time doesn't mean they are insurmountable to other civilisations. What makes you think our Solar System is in a backwater part of the galaxy? But not all of it. What IS arrogance is not believing that there are other intelligent beings out there.

All valid points. I'm not suggesting it isn't possible. But as a skeptic, I have to see more than evidence that"it's possible" to believe something. I will concede that, given the odds, it's highly likely that we aren't the only intelligence that's ever evolved in the universe. But that is miles from saying I "believe" it anymore than I would say I believe we aren't. So I respectfully disagree that it is arrogant to not believe there are other intelligent beings out there. It is only arrogant to believe it's not possible.

So basically they're trying to remake the X- Files, hopefully this time without all of the ridiculous plot twists.
