He was over 80 years old. Roberto Affonso Beck was one of the last living Brazilian UFO pioneers and left a book named Ufology Under The Light Of Facts. He was a devoted field investigator who had experienced several close encounters, especially with devices, a phenomena so common in Brazil. He was one of the first inhabitants of Brasilia, the Federal Capital. During its construction, in the 50s and 60s Beck decided to explore the city's surroundings and found that the area had enormous UFO activity - even to this day. He was a partner of General Alfredo Moacyr Uchoa in many field investigations and successful contact attempts. Roberto Affonso Beck was a distinguished contributor to the Brazilian UFO Magazine and member of the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU), the group that demanded the Government to open its military secret files on UFOs, successfully. He was one of the UFO researchers present at the historical meeting with the military at the Brazilian Airspace Defense Command, in May 2005. A. J. Gevaerd Listen to 'Strange Days...
