Nick Pope - Recently Released Government Documents

Nick Pope investigated UFOs for the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense (MoD) for several years in the early 1990s. He was skeptical about the phenomenon when he began looking into the matter.

He is also a journalist and media commentator.Recently, Nick was able to obtain Department of Defense (DoD) files regarding Advanced Aerospace Identification Program (AATIP), often referred to as the Pentagon’s secret UFO project.

As a filmmaker, David saw an opportunity to help tell the story by taking all of the details publicly available and recreating the encounter. In this episode, we talk to David about his inspiration to make the film, and the details and behind the scenes behind the film’s production.Watch David’s USS Nimitz UFO Encounters video here: https://youtu.be/26vx-EfVD8gVisit his USS Nimitz UFO Encounters website: http://thenimitzencounters.com/Visit his USS Nimitz UFO Encounters Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Thenimitzencounters/UFO Headlines: http://www.openminds.tv/category/ufoheadlinesOur Amazon page: https://www.amazon.com/shop/openmindstvSupport me on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/alejandrotrojas

Roswell 2018: The End of an Era

This year’s annual Roswell UFO festival was another success. The festival began with the 50th anniversary and continues to this day. The UFO Museum has broken attendance records for the last few years, so festival attendance is going strong. However, there was a unique aspect to this year’s festival that will make future events feel a bit like they are missing something. What they will be missing is Stanton Friedman, the man who put Roswell on the map, and made the alleged crash of a UFO in 1947 the most well-known UFO story in the world.Stanton Friedman is retiring this year, and although he will be attending a few more events, this will be his last yearly trek to the UFO festival. In this episode of Open Minds UFO Radio, we talk to several of the attendees and speakers at this years event, and we end the episode with a talk with Stanton about his retirement. Some of the other interviews include Jason McClellan, Shane Hurd, Karen Brard, Travis Walton, Thom Reed, and Jim Hill.

James Abbott, The Outsider’s Guide to UFOs: Mystery and Science

James Abbott is the author of the Outsider's Guide to UFOs. Following a short scholarship to Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, James completed a Bachelor’s degree in Politics and Economics at the University of York and later researched a Master’s thesis at the University of Cambridge on global trade in the aerospace industry. His career has encompassed time in the aerospace sector, in marketing, in education, and in commercial research. He’s written and contributed to around a dozen academic books, and countless lengthy reports. His greatest professional love is research; having the view that there aren’t that many jobs in which you get paid for having fun, but that’s what research is like.So why UFOs of all things? The answer is a long one, but it boils down to this: Like almost everyone else, James gets hooked by a good mystery, and UFOs are perhaps the greatest mystery of all; one which is in desperate need of being properly investigated. He lives with his wife in Yorkshire, England, where rabbits are the only alien menace. Or so he believes! UFOs may or may not be of this Earth and time, but the huge job of trying to nail them down is incredibly fascinating.For more about James, visit his website: www.JamesTAbbott.com

How have these dramatic and often traumatic events affected those involved? Could both the positive and negative implications, whether subtle or revelatory, further our knowledge of what exactly these phenomena represent? Through extremely detailed testimony from highly credible witnesses, including pilots and military personnel, and insight from those in the psychological, academic, and scientific fields, Somewhere in the Skies: A Human Approach to an Alien Phenomenon, is a personal journey that also weaves together a story of stories, furiously pumping new blood into the heart of these mysteries, one inextricable experience at a time.

Robert Hastings, UFOs and Nukes: The Documentary

Although most people are completely unaware of its existence, the UFO-Nukes Connection is now remarkably well-documented. U.S. Air Force, FBI, and CIA files declassified via the Freedom of Information Act establish a convincing, ongoing pattern of UFO activity at American nuclear weapons sites extending back to December 1948. Over the past four decades, Robert Hastings has interviewed more than 150 of veterans regarding their involvement in UFO cases in or around nuclear facilities. On September 27, 2010, CNN live-streamed his UFOs and Nukes press conference in Washington D.C. during which former U.S. Air Force missileers described occasions when several ICBMs mysteriously malfunctioned moments after a disc-shaped craft was observed hovering near their underground launch silos. The documentary, UFOs and Nukes: The Secret Link Revealed, rigorously examines the officially-still-hidden history of UFO activity at nuclear weapons laboratories, test areas, storage depots and missile sites—using authenticated files and the testimony of vetted military eyewitnesses.

John Burroughs, Rendlesham UFO Witness

John Burroughs is one of the primary witnesses to a mass UFO sighting in December, 1980. He and others saw UFOs on multiple nights near the Bentwaters Royal Air Force Base in Suffolk, UK, which was on lease to the US Air Force. Now he is suffering from medical issues that may be related to these events, but is being denied his military medical records. A couple weeks ago we spoke with his lawyer, Pat Frascogna, who says the records are classified. In fact, the USAF denied Burroughs was in the military at all in 1980, but they have fixed this "error" at the behest of a request from Arizona Senator John McCain's office. We talk to John about what he experienced in the Rendlesham forest, outside of RAF Bentwaters, and we ask about other controversial aspects of his sightings, such as the dates of the events, which have been debated. We also talk about his efforts to get his military records, and to get other documents released regarding the Rendlesham forest incident. These efforts have included getting the UK government to admit that they have not released all of their UFO files, as they claimed a few years ago. You can follow John on his Facebook page.

William Hopp, Abductee Filmmaker

William Hopp is the founder of Collective Minds Media and has had a lifelong interest in the Paranormal, especially alien abduction. He suffers from sleep paralysis and can attest to the feelings of a strange presence hiding in the room and the disorientation caused by sleep paralysis. However, he also can draw the distinction between what people report as alien abductions and what he experiences during sleep paralysis. His interest in the alien abduction phenomenon has inspired him to make a movie about what people really experience, unlike the Hollywood versions that we have seen thus far that often change the facts to suit what they believe the audience wants to see. The movie's website explains, "Abductee is a chilling found footage film set in the outskirts of Portland, Oregon. Terrifying in a way that few other horror films are, Abductee explores the bizarre and misunderstood world of alien abduction. Through a first person account, we come to know the fear and mental anguish that befalls a man as he attempts to unravel the mystery of what happens to him when he is alone in the middle of the night."

Antonio Huneeus, Peruvian Air Force's UFO Department

The Peruvian Air Force (FAP) announced last week that it would re-instate their UFO department, known officially as the Office of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena Research (OIFAA).  The organization was officially opened in 2001 under the Peruvian Air Forces’ Directorate of Aerospace Interests (DINAE), the equivalent to our US Air Force Space Command. It also works in conjunction with Peru’s National Commission for Aerospace (CONIDA), similar to our NASA. The organization went dormant in 2005, but according to the DINAE is now being reopened “in response to the significant increase in claims and reports on Anomalous Aerial Objects commonly referred to as Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) in the skies over Peruvian Territory.” We will talk to Antonio Huneeus about the inception and re-opening of OIFAA. Antonio has interviewed all of the key players associated with other official UFO governmental UFO investigative organizations in South America, including retired FAP Commander Julio Chamorro Flores, who is a founder and current head of OIFAA.

David Marler, Triangular UFOs

Triangular UFOs are one of the types that are most reported and some of these cases have been the most amazing and credible cases of all UFO sightings. Although there have been some investigations and analysis done on triangular UFOs, until now no one had written a book compiling the sightings to take a closer look at this aspect of the UFO phenomenon. David Marler has done this in his book Triangular UFOs: An Estimate of the Situation, and what he has found is astonishing. He has gone about his investigation in a professional and careful manner. He has not made assumptions, but rather brought the data together to show that the Triangular UFO phenomenon represents something very mysterious, and buttresses the argument that the UFO phenomenon presents a genuine mystery that deserves serious attention. Besides talking to David about his book, we also are paid a visit by a casting agent looking for people who have had UFO and other paranormal experiences whom may want to participate in their upcoming TV program.

Nick Pope, The Final UK UFO Files

Nick Pope was in charge of the British Ministry of Defence’s UFO desk from 1991 to 1994. It was his job to officially investigate UFO reports, and although he was skeptical at first, the reports convinced him of the serious nature of the phenomenon. He has been an advocate for the serious investigation of UFO sightings ever since. Due to the large amount of requests, the UK decided to proactively release their official UFO investigation files beginning in 2008. They have been released semi-annually in batches. Then in late 2009, the UK decided to close their UFO desk and no longer take UFO reports. With one final batch of files, that just came last week, the UK government says they have released all their files on UFOs. The contents of those files and the decision to close their UFO desk are the focus of our discussion with Nick Pope. You can read more about Nick at his website here: www.nickpope.net.

Scott Ramsey, New Aztec UFO Crash Evidence

Scott Ramsey began his investigation into an alleged crash of a UFO near Aztec, New Mexico over 25 years ago.

Dr. Bruce Maccabee, The FBI UFO Connection

Dr. Bruce Maccabee is a retired optical physicist, and has been one of the premier UFO researchers in the last few decades. His accomplishments in this field are too long to list here, but in particular, Dr. Maccabee was the first to receive the FBI’s UFO files via a FOIA request in the late 1970s. A FBI story on a memo in these files has been getting a lot of attention lately. In this story, the FBI referenced having released the UFO memo in the 70s, they were referring to Dr. Maccabee. Even though this is the case, no one in the media has bothered talking to Dr. Maccabee about the memo, so we are. We will talk about how the media has gotten this story wrong, Dr. Maccabee’s opinion of this now infamous “Hottel” UFO memo, and what insights the FBI’s UFO files give us into their investigations into the subject.

Prof. Ted Peters, Astrobiology Meets Ufology

Astrobiologists and Ufologists are not typically seen together at the same BBQs. Why? Each argues that the other is not attending to the evidence. NASA’s Astrobiological Roadmap asks three research questions: What is the origin of life? Is there a second genesis of life? How will life expand from Earth to elsewhere? SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Life Institute) is listening for radio signals emitted from extra-solar civilizations. This is hard-nosed science. Yet, ufologists also believe they are employing scientific methods such as scrupulous investigation of sightings, hypnotic regression, statistical analysis, and such. Ufologists revere science. Why, then, is there tension if not outright hostility between the fields?  Ted Peters is the author of UFOs—God’s Chariots?, first published in 1977. Its penetrating cultural analysis of the UFO phenomenon remains definitive. He teaches systematic theology at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary and the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. He co-edits the journal, Theology and Science, at the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences. He has recently served as consultant to NASA and SETI on astro-ethics. He is the author of GOD—The World’s Future (Fortress, rev. ed. 2000); Science, Theology and Ethics (Ashgate 2003); and co-author of A Theological and Scientific Commentary on Darwin’s Origin of Species (Abingdon 2009).

Nick Pope, UK UFO Hacker Gary McKinnon

Nick Pope and I will be discussing the incredible case of UFO Hacker Gary McKinnon. This extraordinary case has erupted into an international relations event that has been discussed publicly by President Obama and Prime Minster Cameron, and has strained relations between these two powerful allies. We will ask Nick how badly this case has damaged relations between the two countries, what UFO secrets have been revealed and what more if any may be forthcoming. Author, journalist and TV personality Nick Pope used to run the British Government's UFO project at the Ministry of Defence. Initially skeptical, his research and investigation into the UFO phenomenon and access to classified government files on the subject soon convinced him that the phenomenon raised important defence and national security issues, especially when the witnesses were military pilots, or where UFOs were tracked on radar.

Robert Schroeder is the author of the book: Solving the UFO Enigma: How Modern Physics is Revealing the Technology of UFOs.
