Expert, Dr. J. Allen Hynek Urges Probe of UFOs | UFO CHRONICLE – 1974

Expert Urges Probe of UFOs (Heading) - YoungsTown Vindicator 3-10-1974


     During the past 25 years hundreds of thousands of Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) sightings have been reported to private and governmental agencies. The unexplained nature of an increasing number of reports from highly credible

observers throughout the world presents a modern scientific enigma.

“Any phenomenon which has occupied the thought of so many people for so many years is surely worthy of serious scientific study,” says Dr. J. Allen Hynek, the world’s foremost scientific authority of the subject.

Dr. Hynek feels that the “UFO phenomenon has not been given serious attention in the past, yet it is an interconvertible fact that a great many unsolved UFO reports exist.”

Private Company holds Canada’s Most Compelling UFO Data

Nav Canada


Nav Canada is sitting on 25 years of UFO evidence from pilots and the military.
     A private company holds some of Canada’s most compelling UFO data—and it has no interest in sharing it.

directs thousands of flights per day. That makes the company the first line of contact when professional pilots spot UFOs in Canadian airspace, like on the morning of Oct. 21, 2005, when Nav Canada staff "received reports from four aircraft flight crews of a shiny silver object over Toronto."

CIA Conducted Mind-Control Tests Up To 1972

CIA Conducted Mind-Control Tests Up '72  - Washington Post 9-2-1977


     The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has uncovered thousands of "lost" documents which show that its chemical and biological mind-control experiments on human subjects were conducted as late as mid-1972.
By The Washington Post
9-2-1977

CIA Director Stansfield Turner has maintained that the only sketchy financial records left in the CIA's files on its mind-control projects showed human experimentation was discontinued in 1964.

The newly discovered files–14 folders with about 700 pages of financial records–indicate that human subjects were experimented on with their knowledge under the CIA's Project MK-SEARCH until the project was halted by CIA Technical Services Director Sidney Gottieb on July 10, 1972.

[...]

The boxes contain records of U.S. intelligence operations going back to the days of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in 1943, the CIA spokesman said. The OSS was the CIA's predecessor.

They also contained detailed operations files on chemical and biological experimentation run from 1949 until the mid-1950s under CIA's code names Bluebird and Artichoke. Subjects of the experiments included CIA personnel who were aware of the experiments and foreigners who may not have been, according to the CIA.

... North Korean officials accused the United States in 1951 of conducting bacteriological experimentation on captured POWs at Koje Island prison off South Korea. U.S. officials emphatically denied the charges.

UFOs, Secret Soviet Weapons and Alien Visitors – A Cultural History

UFOs, Secret Soviet Weapons and Alien Visitors – A Cultural History

On June 25, 2021, the U.S. government released a nine–page preliminary report on UFOs, or, as it is now calling them, Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, or UAPs. The report is the latest notable event in what has been a renaissance for UFOs in recent years.

... something changed in the 19th century. That’s when you first start to see these reports of people seeing what they say were flying ships overhead. The things people describe back then sound a lot like the things they were familiar with – they literally saw ships and vessels that would normally float on the sea in flight. Some people would see steam-powered ships.

But it’s really not until the summer of 1947 that people began to regularly speak of seeing flying objects that some attributed to extraterrestrials.

What Is Havana Syndrome? What We Know

     Havana Syndrome is a series of unexplained medical symptoms first experienced by U.S. State Department personnel stationed in Cuba beginning in late 2016. At the time, those diplomats had been dispatched to Cuba as part of the

rapprochement between the two countries begun under President Barack Obama, after decades of severed diplomatic relations between the two countries. The emergence of the ailments on Cuban soil strained those developing ties.

Since the initial cases, diplomats and intelligence officers stationed around the world have experienced similar symptoms.

     Will the report, and increased transparency by the military, change anything? Will it help draw scientists like me into a serious study of the phenomenon?​

Scientists will have to get over their reticence to engage with the sightings. We are in an awkward position. Rapid progress in finding planets orbiting other stars has led to a projection of 300 million habitable planets in our galaxy. There has been plenty of time for life on some of those planets to evolve intelligence and technology. We don’t deny the possibility of aliens traveling from their star system to ours. We are just unconvinced by the data presented so far. Most sightings can be attributed to weather balloons or astronomical phenomena such as meteors, fireballs, and Venus. There are many resources giving mundane explanations for UFO sightings.

[...]

... the military and intelligence communities will have to more actively engage with scientists, and ask for their help and expertise in understanding the sightings in the report, and many others that have not been made public. There are signs that this might happen. Under Avril Haynes, the Office of the DNI has been drawing on its expert group of 500 scientists who consult with the intelligence agencies on scientific problems. A model for this type of collaboration is the two panels of scientists and medical experts that were recently set up to understand the “Havana syndrome” that has afflicted American diplomats since 2016.
