and Roswell Researcher.
"It used to be that most people
believed in UFO's but most people thought most other peolpe didn't and that
effected their actions. So now you can talk.....it's alright....you don't get
laughed at"- Stanton Friedman.
Stanton Friedman was responsible for
the original investigation of the alleged flying saucer crash at Roswell,
New Mexico. Friedman and fellow Roswell
researcher William Moore, contacted over 160 witnesses associated with the 1947
In a prepared statement submitted to
the House Science and Astronautics Committee UFO hearings in 1968, he posed and
answered a series of key questions about the UFO phenomenon:
1. To what conclusions have you come with regards to UFO's?....."I have
concluded that the earth is being visited by intelligently controlled vehicles
whose origin is extraterrestrial. This doesn't mean I know where they come from,
why they are here of how they operate."
2. What basis do you have for these conclusions?....."Eyewitnesses and
photographic and radar reports from all over the earth by competent witnesses of
definite objects whose characteristics such as maneuverability, high speed, and
hovering, along with definite shape, texture, and surface features, rule out
3. Were there any differences between the unknowns and the knowns?...."A
'chi square' statistical analysis was performed comparing the unknowns in this
study to all the knowns. It was shown that the probability that the unknowns
came from the same population of sighting reports as the knowns, was less than
1%. This was based on apparent colour, velocity etc...Maneuverability, one of
the mist distinguished characteristics of UFO's was not included in the
