The Kavli Royal Society International Centre, Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell Buckinghamshire MK16 9JJ, UK
This beautiful Georgian country house, set in 80 acres, oozing tranquillity, was an idyllic and suitably impressive location for the grand theme of the Royal Society’s satellite meeting on the 4th and 5th of October 2010, organised by Dr Martin Dominik, University of St Andrews and Professor John Zarnecki, from The Open University.
Speakers and panellists were drawn from various countries, fields and groups, including SETI, NASA, Space Law, Geochemistry, Ecology, Planetary Sciences, Astronomy, Theology, Literature, History, Microwave sciences, Anthropology, Archaeology Linguist specialists, Space Technology, Evolutionary Developmental Systems Theorists, to name some, and I am sure I have not covered all the disciplines gathered. Some delegates also came from related areas such as Astrobiology. I was there as an observer, under the flag of Exopolitics, http://www.exopolitics.org. founded by Dr. Michael Salla PhD., 2005, to address serious questions arising from the social, diplomatic, political, economical and technical implications of an extra terrestrial presence on Earth, a field gaining ground world wide; the UK node is run by David Griffin http://www.exopolitics.org.uk.
Steven Spielberg is obsessed with UFOs. Indeed, judging by the success of his alien movies to date, his obsession is infectious. Perhaps more so than any other filmmaker, Spielberg has moulded our perceptions of otherworldly visitors. Films such as Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) and E.T.: The Extraterrestrial (1982) abound with iconic imagery seared into the minds of millions: a mothership’s miraculous ascension at Devil’s Tower; a boy and his fugitive friend from the stars cycling in silhouette across the face of the moon. Even Spielberg’s less memorable alien movies – War of the Worlds (2005) and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) – have enjoyed enormous success at the worldwide box-office, raking in some $1.4 billion between them.
Although the 63 year old has donned his director’s cap for just four alien-themed movies, his role as a producer has long seen him neck-deep in extraterrestrial entertainment. Spielberg’s credits to date include, Batteries Not Included (1987), the Men in Black franchise (1997 -), the epic alien abduction mini-series Taken (2002) and the Transformers franchise (2007 -); he is also closely involved in the development of four projects due in 2011: the alien invasion series Fallen Skies; the ‘Sci-fi-Western’ Cowboys and Aliens; the much anticipated Super 8, the plot for which features Area 51, the US Air Force and an escaped alien entity; and the ‘aliens in high school’ thriller, I Am Number Four.
In a statement made on May 7th, former State Representative from New Hampshire and State Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs committee member, Henry W. McElroy Jr. went on the record with some startling claims about documents he saw during his tenure.
McElroy claims to have seen documents referring to knowledge of "benevolent" extraterrestrial visitation within the US and the possibility of setting up a meeting with President Eisenhower.
All of these claims are as yet unverified, but make for interesting listening / reading nonetheless. In the words of Nick Pope, "Interesting if True."
In a recent, not to say deft, piece of investigation more proof has been found of Hillary Clinton's interest in extraterrestrial life. A photograph showing the back cover of a book being held by Hillary was noticed by researcher, Tonio Cousyn. After some leg work, Cousyn found the title of the book...
The book was written by Professor Paul Davies, currently of Arizona State University. The Amazon write up of the book says...
The authentic discovery of extraterrestrial life would usher in a scientific revolution on par with Copernicus or Darwin, says Paul Davies. Just as these ideas sparked religious and philosophical controversy when they were first offered, so would proof of life arising away from Earth. With this brief book (160 pages, including two appendices and an index), Davies tries to get ahead of the curve and begin to sort out the metaphysical mess before it happens. Many science fiction writers have preceded him, of course, but here the matter is plainly put. This is a very good introduction to a compelling subject.
Grant Cameron is to appear on Joe Montaldo's 'UFO Undercover' show on November 4th, 7-9 pm CT.
Tune in for all the latest updates on Grant's latest updates on his work concerning UFOs and the Presidents. I think you'll agree that this is one of the most compelling issues in the fields of Ufology. If the President of the United States of America is interested in UFOs you should be too!
For 60 years space aliens have left their mark on the Hollywood box-office in some of the most popular movies of all time, from The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), E.T: The Extraterrestrial (1982) and Independence Day (1996), to the highly lucrative Monsters vs. Aliens (2009). Particularly noteworthy is the Transformers franchise (2007-), which to date has tapped the rich vein of UFO mythology to the tune of $1.5 billion. The most interesting aspects of the Transformers films, however, are evident not so much in celluloid form as they are behind the scenes – in a production process built around the close relationship between Hollywood, the United States military and a variety of government agencies. While the dryer details of the “military-industrial-entertainment complex” have been relatively well documented, the curious tale of government involvement in Hollywood’s UFO movies represents a forgotten chapter in the history of American cinema.
