The Day the Museum Stood Still

The Day the Museum Stood Still

     A modest ufological exhibit caused a big controversy. From August 30, 2008, to January 9, 2009, Mary Brogan Museum of Art and Science in Tallahassee, Florida, (permanently closed in 2013) presented historical insights into the Roswell Incident – controversial July 1947 crash allegedly related to ET craft and bodies recovered by the US Army Air Forces. US government released 2 conclusions to resolve the matter. One in 1994 emphasized that the object was just a surveillance balloon from the secret Project Mogul. Another one in 1997, noted that test dummies dropped from high altitude where the most likely cause for stories of "crashed bodies in the desert".

clippings and audio recordings were part of the Roswell exhibit. However, on November 7, 2008, the event culminated. Nuclear physicist and original civilian researcher of the incident, Stanton Friedman, presented two lectures. Frist one was titled "The Real Roswell Story". It was followed the next day with another lecture titled "Star Travel? Yes!".

Friedman’s lectures sparked local interest towards Roswell controversies. However, this public scrutiny also brought loud objections against the event. On November 4, 2008, local newspapers „The Tallahassee Democrat“, published a letter from Dr. Paul Cottle of University Florida to the editor. He was upset.
