UFO speakers

I am looking for good UK-based speakers knowledgeable about alien-related matters - UFOs, SETI, etc. Can anyone recommend anyone?

No wackos obviously - I need credible people with some genuine expertise...

Nick Pope is the usual suspect, isn't he?

You could enquire at Fortean Times. They organise an annual UnConvention with a wide array of speakers on subjects including - but not limited to - UFOs. They should have some contacts you're after.

How about Prof. Chandra Wickramasinghe ?

Have you read David Grinspoon's "Lonely Planets: The Natural Philosophy Of Alien Life"? Grinspoon is a serious astrophysicist - he's the world's leading expert on the planet Venus - so he's not a loony.

Grinspoon is based in the US, unfortunately.

Pope is overdone these days. Too many radio and tv shows and he's getting way too repetitive.

Good choices would be Philip Mantle, Gary Heseltine, Timothy Good, but my personal first choice would probably be....

Robert Rosamond

The link will take you to an article he wrote a ways back.

Some very interesting suggestions! :) I have broadcasted your request on my Twitter feed. Hope it helps. And I agree with that Blue Alien... :)
Pope is overdone right now. He even has started sounding bored with himself...and the questions posed to him.

The LINK to this post has been Twittered at http://twitter.com/IQXS and shared with 1,090+ die-hard UFO Twit-thusiasts galaxy-wide. We track the latest in UFO/Alien Affairs News, Views, Pix and Vids.

Come join the loop and be in the know. Tin foil hats, optional! ;) ATT: We do not re-post videos or data, we only share the link to yours. Ciao!

Nick Cook, not to be confused with Nick Pope, is an Aviation Journalist who has worked for Janes Defence Weekly amongst others, and is an authority on the U.S. Aurora anti-gravity program. Check out his homepage High Frontiers. Thought provoking work on flying saucers.

Alternatively, in Australia there is Professor Ross Taylor who was the geochemist to first analyze the moon rocks of the Apollo missions. He has a book called Destiny or Chance which argues the difficulty of making Earth like Planets and thus extra terrestrial life! Great for background research and if you can get him Ross’s friend, Harrison (Jack) Schmidt the last Apollo astronaut and the first geologist on the moon.

Off topic but I recall a while you suggested doing a sort of atheist Alpha course, so I wondered if you might find this new Channel 4 offering interesting.

Revelations "Afforded complete access to one Alpha course, at St Aldate's Church in Oxford, [...] documents the whole process over its eight weeks."

The British National Space Centre might be able to recommend someone.

UFO is a term used to describe any aerial object that is not otherwise easily explained or described. UFO sightings have occurred throughout history. In fact, paranormal light sightings like shooting stars or the northern lights could be described as UFOs by observers in history who did not know how to identify such occurrences. Photos and video proof of UFO sightings can shed some light on the question, are UFOs and aliens real or an elaborate hoax? Find out more at http://ufos.org

I found all I needed to know in your article. You deserve a pat on the back.

There's no point in looking any further than your article for more information on this subject. You did a pretty good job in writing it.
