UFO Investigator Nick Pope discusses the Real X Files
Live Webcast Featuring UFO Investigator Nick Pope. A worldwide event with thousands of viewers planned to watch it from around the world!
(Press Release) - Feb 01, 2011 - The event Nick Pope will begin the lecture by giving an overview of the British government's involvement with the UFO phenomenon, which dates back to 1950, when the Ministry of Defense established a small committee to examine the phenomenon, known as the Flying Saucer Working Party. He will explain government policy on this issue and detail the way in which investigations were carried out. Nick Pope will then discuss a number of cases in detail, focusing on incidents that remain unexplained and on cases where the witnesses were military personnel. This will include discussion of the Rendlesham Forest incident, the UK's most interesting and compelling UFO case. This took place in 1980 and the 30th anniversary has attracted considerable media and public interest. He will also discuss a number of incidents where there have been near-misses between UFOs and commercial aircraft. He believes this is a serious issue that is not receiving the public attention it deserves, largely because of the perceived stigma of reporting UFO incidents, which leads to many pilots failing to report incidents that should be of concern to airlines.
Nick Pope will then talk about two Royal Society discussion meetings that were held in 2010, where the scientific and societal consequences of discovering extraterrestrial life were considered. Nick Pope attended both these meetings and had extensive discussions with many of the key speakers. He subsequently reported on these meetings on television and in newspapers, in his capacity as a freelance journalist. Nick Pope believes that it is important not to be afraid to ask speculative questions about humankind's place in the wider cosmos.
The question of whether or not we are alone in the Universe is one of the biggest questions we can ask. There are only two possible answers and arguably, either answer is both profound and disturbing. If we did ever discover extraterrestrial life, whether it be microbial life on Mars, or the detection of a radio signal from another civilization, we would have to reassess our own lives. While we would try to learn as much as possible about the extraterrestrial life, ironically, such a discovery might ultimately teach us something new about ourselves.
