Maritime Mulder hits Space channel



The Daily News


Stanton T. Friedman's fascination for outer space =97 and his
habit of questioning authority =97 began early in life.

As a Grade 3 student in New Jersey, he got in trouble for
correcting a teacher who told the class the sun stood still,
while planets revolved around it. The next day, Friedman lugged
his encyclopedia to class to prove the entire solar system,
including the sun, moved around the centre of the galaxy. So he
learned early he'd better have facts to back up his arguments.
Which comes in handy if you're going to be a UFO expert.

Now living in New Brunswick, the highly-sought lecturer and
author is the subject of a documentary produced by Halifax's
Redstar Films, airing tonight on Space: The Imagination Station.
Stanton T. Friedman IS Real! follows the real-life Fox Mulder to
a convention in California, to his chaotic basement office at
home in Fredericton, and to the famed UFO crash site Roswell,
N.M., which has become a veritable tourist trap of alien lore.

The film interviews Friedman's followers and detractors, also
covering his early career as a nuclear physicist for companies
such as General Electric and Westinghouse, and on classified
nuclear aircraft projects.

"He looked at the evidence and came to a scientific conclusion
when he was younger that flying saucers do exist," says the
film's director Paul Kimball.

Friedman is uncomfortable with the limitations of a 45-minute TV
show summing up his lifelong quest to expose government
coverups, but he says Kimball gives viewers a good snapshot. (In
December, he enjoyed being a guest on Dan Aykroyd's 65- episode
series on the paranormal, but it was canned when the network was
sold.) Two weeks from now, Friedman returns to Roswell for the
town's annual anniversary "crash bash," and in August, he'll ham
it up in Kimball's vampire flick Eternal Kiss, making a cameo as
a vampire expert. Despite his healthy sense of humour, Friedman
is completely serious about his work, and expects to be
vindicated one day when humans make contact with an alien

"I guess I'm convinced this really is the biggest story of the
past millennium " if the major news media =97 the New York Times,
Washington Post, 60 Minutes =97 would spend one-tenth the effort
going after the Cosmic Watergate that they put into such
important stories as Monica Lewinsky and Gary Condit and Elian
Gonzales, it would take them less than six months.

"I don't expect to convince everybody. That's not my goal. My
goal is to educate people if they're willing to listen. I don't
care whether you believe. Just give me a fair shake."

Stanton T. Friedman IS Real! premieres tonight at 8 p.m. on
Space: The Imagination Station. To learn more about Friedman's
