"UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry"

Saturday, November 8, 2014 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Richard Thieme will present "UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry" which is a scholarly historical study in a field which sees a lot of dubious speculation. As a CHOICE review says, it's "an exception." The subject has been marginalized over the years but the history of the subject has not and,can not be, inasmuch as the government responded continuously to the challenge, and that's what Richard and others document in a fascinating account.
