The subject of the event was "Interstellar Travel and Unidentified Aerial Phenomena: Science Fiction or Science Fact". It was moderated by Ray Suarez, a senior correspondent for "The NewsHour", and the speakers included Dr. Richard Henry, Dr. Michio Kaku, Dr. Bernard Haisch, Dr. Peter Sturrock, Dr. Jacques Vallee, Ted Roe and John Callahan. I believe that others are planning a detailed report on the event, so I won't attempt to provide any details. But the fact that this type of event, with a distinguished panel of this type, was sponsored by the SciFi Channel speaks well for their efforts. The SciFi Channel's President, Bonnie Hammer, said the cable network has straddled the line between science fact and science fiction for a decade. She hoped that the thrust of their effort would help to define that line more clearly, and today's event was a positive step. I would add that "Taken" wasn't mentioned once during the Symposium, and there was no effort to promote the 10 hour mini- series. Steve PS- It was a pleasure to have the chance to meet John Velez, who was one of many who had driven many miles to attend.
