Flying Saucers and Science is a comprehensive look at the scientific data on the flying saucer phenomenon. Nuclear physicist and lecturer Stanton T. Friedman has distilled more than 40 years of research on UFOs, and shares his work on a wide variety of classified advanced nuclear and space systems. He answers a number of physics questions in layman's terms, and establishes that travel to nearby stars is within reach, without violating the laws of physics. This book presents intriguing data from a number of large-scale scientific UFO studies that almost no one has discussed in detail. It deals with ''why'' questions, such as reasons for a cover-up, reasons for aliens to come to Earth, and reasons for them not landing on the White House lawn. Friedman unveils the SETI program and details the antipathy of science-fiction writers to UFOs. He also reviews false notions about those who believe in alien visitors and the adequacy of coverage by media and the scientific community. After reading Flying Saucers and Science, you will never think the same way about UFOs again.
