IF SCIENCE REFUSES TO DEAL WITH THIS TOPIC, THEN WHAT IS SCIENCE FOR?
Beginning after the launch of Sputnik and ending with the landing on the moon, the first volume of Jacques Vallee’s journals details how UFOs, in the midst of a proliferation of sightings in the 1960s, became a forbidden science. In this beautifully written journal, Vallee reveals just how the scientific community was misled by the government, how the best data on UFOs was kept hidden, and how the public record was shamelessly manipulated.
JACQUES VALLEE holds a master’s degree in astrophysics and a PhD in computer science. The subject of UFOs first attracted his attention as an astronomer in Paris. He subsequently became a close associate of Project Blue Book’s J. Allen Hynek and has written several books on the UFO enigma. He is presently a venture capitalist living in San Francisco.
