Above, Ufofu reproduces the famous Rex Heflin photos: Reconstitution des photos de Rex Heflin (in French). Can you see the string? Also from Ufofu, below, an analysis of the too-good-to-be-true Maslin Beach photos: Les OVNIs de Maslin Beach.
And if that wasn’t enough, ufofu also takes a look at Marian Apparitions. But back to classic cases, you can’t get more classic than Kenneth Arnold’s sighting. Eric Maillot suggests an explanation in L’ESCADRILLE D’OVNIS DE KENNETH ARNOLD ET L’HYPOTHESE OUBLIEE (PDF). And Marc Hallet has George Adamski. Biographie critique. All in French.
But you can also enjoy some Spanish in this adorable comic about the UMMO myth. Click on the image for the whole lot, even if you don’t understand the language, you may get an idea of the myth promoted in this fascinating piece of the UFO controversy (the symbol has even made an appearance in LOST):
If you really enjoy that English language though, you cannot miss “Xenology – An Introduction to the Scientific Study of Extraterrestrial Life, Intelligence, and Civilization”, by Robert A. Freitas Jr. It’s a lot to read, Freitas has just made the whole book available online.
“Topics include the history of the idea of extraterrestrial life; comparative planetology, stars, and galaxies; xenobiology (definition/origin of life, exotic biochemistries, and possible alien bioenergetics, biomechanics, sensations, reproduction, and intelligence); extraterrestrial civilizations (energy sources, biotechnology, interstellar travel, alien weapons, planetary and stellar engineering, xenosociology, and extraterrestrial governments and culture); interstellar communication techniques; and the sociology, legal issues, and appropriate interaction protocols pertaining to first contact.”
When you see all these words together, you may have a bad feeling from all the dubious stuff that is usually presented about these topics. One more reason to read Xenology: it’s a serious, sober approach that separates fact from speculation, but which also doesn’t fear to speculate.
Good reading! [hat tip to Manuel Borraz and José Juan Montejo Aguilera]
