Saturday 6th March 2010. Tickets on the door.
Come hear and question some of the world’s leading experts on notorious monster and alien claims.
Nick Pope ran the British government’s UFO project at the Ministry of Defence. With UFO sightings in the UK at near-record levels and increased mainstream media coverage of the topic, Nick Pope will discuss the enduring fascination of this subject. He’ll be highlighting some recent stories such as MoD’s decision to terminate its UFO project and the ongoing programme to release the government’s UFO files to the National Archives. Nick Pope attended the recent Royal Society discussion meeting on the consequences of detecting extraterrestrial life and will discuss some of the material presented, with particular reference to the societal consequences of such a discovery.
Adrian Shine is head of the Loch Ness Project, and the world’s leading expert on the monster allegedly lurking in the Loch’s murky depths. He will be casting a sceptical eye over the evidence.
Paul Vella is Britain’s leading expert on Sasquatch, and will be taking a close, sceptical look at the main areas of evidence including photographic, historical records, hair samples, DNA, footprints, but also covers misidentification and hoaxing.
