TV series to revisit famous UFO cases

A new National Geographic television series, 'Chasing UFOs', will explore the world's UFO hotspots.

For the series a team of scientists and investigators will take a look at some of the world's most well known UFO cases such as the Roswell Incident and the Phoenix Lights. In each episode the team will explore relevant incident sites, interview witnesses and use sophisticated equipment in an effort to get to the bottom of the mystery.

"I tried to help illustrate applying critical analysis to the range of alleged evidence," said geoscientist Ben McGee. "The difference between UFO believers and astronomers is on the one hand you have people who find the data to support their hypothesis, and on the other you have the guys who attack their own hypothesis who know there's a huge range of possible other explanations."

"Did a UFO really crash near Roswell, N. M."

Yes I've seen docs about that incident. If it was a japanese aircraft one would think the government would have declassified it by now. Do you know of the Shag Harbor incident off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada where an object was witnessed diving into the atlantic? Fisherman in boats went out to investigate thinking it was a plane crash and all they found was yellow foam on the water. The next day divers were called in but found nothing. This happened in the late 60's. Ryegrog, if it had been a japanese craft it would been totally trashed. could not have been Shag Harbor? I seem to recall i... [More]

Sadly? Jules Verne's books were once thought of as science fiction of his time like vessels that can travel under water and rocket ships that go to the moon. But obviously that became science fact. I wouldn't be surprise someday if time travel will be possible or ships that can travel faster then light speed. Of course their will always be Nay Sayers that will say it's impossible just like their were nay sayers in Jules Verne's time period. Sorry, I should probably have been a bit more clear. I have no problem with science fiction becoming science fact. That we have seen on numerous occasions.... [More]

What I have a problem with is science fiction being presented as science fact when it is not - like here. Cheers, Badeskov I guess the A-bomb is sad to be invented since it caused loss of life. Even Robert Oppenheimer regreted it.

Ryegrog, if it had been a japanese craft it would been totally trashed. could not have been Shag Harbor? I seem to recall it. if I remember, there was a USO that the navy followed around for quite some time, unless I am confusing it Yes their was clearly an object in the night sky off L.A. cause the search lights were focused on it. And shells were hitting around it. And as for the Shag Harbor incident the Navy supossive tracked the object underwater from the coast of Canada to the coast of Maine and it supossived surfaced a flew away.

UFO Chasers premiers tomorrow night at 9 on NGC (two back to back episodes). Supposedly, they'll be investigating new cases as well as old cases. Here's a link: http://tvblogs.nationalgeographic.com/blog/chasing-ufos/ I think it's worth looking at once to see if it's the same old crap or something new.

As reported by Los Angeles Times bloggers Scott Harrison and Larry Harnisch the version of the photo that ran in the paper in 1942 had been retouched in ways that would not be acceptable today. The skyline was darkened with ink; paint (similar to correction fluid) was used to brighten searchlight beams and to turn lens flare dots into antiaircraft bursts.

What about the fact that Boyd Bushman lied about anti grav and used Lorentz law to fake anti grav Prove that. The only replica I've seen of the L.E. showed a very unstable hover that kept banging on the aluminum, Boyd's demo showed perfect stability. If it were really that easy to duplicate, as you arrogant imply.that would be a best selling toy everywhere, at least half as much as the antigravity top in my opinion. Also what's with the immature use of a giant pic of Transformer? Grow up and stop watching cartoons already.
