Renown Scientists that Believe in UFOs
- •Astronaut Edgar Mitchell, Sc. D., Ph. D."I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real."
- •Astronaut Gordon Cooper, Sc. D."l did have occasion in 1951 to have two days of observation of many flights of them, of different sizes, flying in fighter formation, generally from east to west over Europe."
- •Astronomer Bernard Haisch, Ph. D., Principal Investigator on several NASA studies, reviewer for NASA and NSF, editor for Journal of Scientific Exploration and The Astrophysical Journal."...the fact of the matter is, there does exist a vast amount of high quality, albeit enigmatic, data. UFO sightings are not limited to farmers in backward rural areas. NASA engineers -- and others who have been around the block a few times when it comes to observing natural phenomena -- who have witnessed events for which there is no plausible conventional explanation. "
- •Dr. Maurice Biot, aerodynamicist and mathematical physicist."The least improbable explanation is that these things are artificial and controlled. . .my opinion for some time has been that they have an extraterrestrial origin."
- •Dr. Richard F. Haines, retired NASA senior research scientist at Ames Research Center and the Research Institute for Advanced Computer Science.
- •Werner Von Braun, rocket scientist who was instrumental in the development of Nazi Germany's V2 rocket and later, the American space program."We find ourselves faced by powers which are far stronger than we had hitherto assumed, and whose base is at present unknown to us. More I cannot say at present. We are now engaged in entering into closer contact with those powers."
- •Dr. J. Allen Hynek, Astronomer, former Chairman of the Dept. of Astronomy at North Western University and scientific advisor to US Air Force during the late 40's, 50's & 60's."Over the past eighteen years I have acted as a scientific consultant to the U.S. Air Force on the subject of unidentified flying objects - UFO's. As a consequence of my work on the voluminous air force files and, to a greater extent, of personal investigation of many puzzling cases and interviews with witnesses of good repute, I have long been aware that the subject of UFO's could not be dismissed as mere nonsense."
- •Lee Katchen, NASA atmospheric physicist.He stated that he believed, based on his examination of 7,000 reports, that UFOs have an extraterrestrial origin.
- •Michio Kaku, Ph. D., Theoretical physicist, Professor of Theoretical Physics at the City College of New York."One in 200 stars has habitable Earth-like planets surrounding it - in the galaxy, half a billion stars have Earth-like planets going around them - that's huge, half a billion. So when we look at the night sky, it makes sense that someone is looking back at us."
