Licht aus für den Klimaschutz, aber nicht für die "UFOs"

Die "Invasion Of The Saucer Men" geht weiter und die große US-Zeitschrift "Parade Magazin" widmet sich unseren Thema - TV-Doku: "The Secret UFO Files"...

Samstag, der 8.Dezember 2007 - der Tag an dem es von 20 h an fünf Minuten lang hieß "Licht aus für den Klimaschutz". Übrigens: Die Kanzlerin sprach dieser Tage von ihrer Forderung einer "Kultur des Hinsehens", zu erkennen und zu sehen wie es wirklich um uns herum ist. Eine "Kultur des Hinsehens" bräuchten zweifelsfrei auch die meisten UFOlogen, das Hinsehen auf unsere Seiten nämlich, Tag für Tag. Dann bräuchten sie nämlich nicht ihre Aufmerksamkeit auf Nebensächlichkeiten ziehen oder sich vom eigentlichen Thema abzulenken, um Zeit zu verplempern - aber da die UFOlogie für sie meistens eh nur UFOtainment und Geschwätz bedeutet, ist dieser von mir geäußerte Wunsch vergebens. Andere verwenden das Ablenken auf Nebensächlichkeiten und das Hochziehen von jenen als Instrument, um selbst schön dazustehen. Siehe den MUFON-CES-Flopfall Weinsberg. Oder viel schlimmer das rhetorische Gebetsmühlen-Geklapper von Hesemann als Oberschwätzer und seine ideologischen Kupels als Nachäffer. Langweilig und lustig wie dieser Filmtrailer von 1957 in Sachen "Invasions Of The Saucer Men": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RADX...

Die große amerikanische Gesellschafts-Zeitschrift ´Parade Magazin´ hatte den Artikel "Are They Out There?" ( http://www.parade.com/articles/edit... ) von David H.Levy verwendet, um auf die ´Air Wonder Mysterys´ aufmerksam zu machen:

>It may have been the most unusual question to come up at a Presidential debate. When moderator Tim Russert asked Democratic candidate Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich if he´d ever seen a UFO, the Ohio Congressman didn´t hesitate. "I did," he replied. While this led to much amusement in the media, it also prompts a more serious look at the phenomenon of Unidentified Flying Objects. Humans have long asked: Are we alone? Has our planet ever been visited by others? Among those committed to the search for evidence of life beyond Earth are the scientists at the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute. ... Sightings of UFOs have occurred since biblical times. Renaissance artwork includes visions of strange flying objects in the sky. Many modern-day sightings are on record, and some remain mysteries to this day. Some sightings are not easily dismissed. Years ago, the late Clyde Tombaugh, the man who discovered Pluto, observed green fireballs in the sky. Unlike the ordinary greenish fireballs that occasionally brighten the night, these appeared as a group and seemed to speed up during their flight through the sky. But the more he thought about it, the more skeptical Tombaugh became about his sighting. "Even if they were visiting from a planet circling the nearest star, Alpha Centauri," he once told me, "an almost infinite amount of fuel, as we understand it, would be required to accelerate them from their home to ours. There must be another explanation."

Jack ´Triple´ Nickel, a retired Air Force fighter pilot, also is a respected astronomer. Early in his career, in the fall of 1973, as he flew at night between clouds over Oklahoma and Texas, a bright light suddenly appeared in front of him. "It was either close by and dim or far away and bright," he recalls. "It lasted about 20 minutes before vanishing." Nickel can´t rule out the possibility that the light was the bright star Sirius shining through a break in the clouds, but the sighting was never explained. Still, most of the strange sights in the night sky are easy to explain-- whether it´s Venus, the northern lights or even an artificial satellite passing for a UFO. For example, pilot Tom Wideman was flying over California late one night in 1986 when he witnessed "a blazing fireball that crossed our path from right to left, trailing flaming debris before it went out of sight." The next day, Wideman learned that a Russian rocket booster had burned up on re-entry over the Mojave Desert. "It had crossed 20 miles in front of our flight path, close enough to be spectacular." Many scientists, myself included, believe we are probably not alone in our galaxy but that most likely no one has visited us yet. Even if a UFO landed in my backyard, I´d want to have a look inside and meet the occupants before I´d be convinced.

Recently, just before dawn, 11 faint lights appeared in my telescope´s field of view. They climbed the sky, slowed, stopped, then started back toward the horizon. I thought about it for a while. Then it hit me: About 300 miles from my Arizona home is White Sands Missile Range, a facility that frequently launches rockets. I must have witnessed a missile launch. If you hear a UFO story, be skeptical. Ask questions. If someone describes an object that hovers in the sky, motionless, then tears off at twice the speed of sound, ask how it could suddenly move that fast, breaking Newton´s law of motion. It has to accelerate to that speed, and the faster it speeds up, the more force is needed. In the meantime, keep watching. Seeing unusual things is just one reason to look up at the night sky, eagerly and passionately, and wonder.<

Mit obigen Zeitschriftenartikel wurde das UFO-Thema wieder etwas mehr in den Mittelpunkt der US-Kultur gerückt, da ´Parade´ einen guten Klang im öffentlichen Ansehen hat. Und jetzt wieder einmal Material aus den TV-"UFO - Files" mit der Folge ´The Secret UFO-Files´: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RADX... - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psXT... - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQEC... - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ez-9... - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkZG...
