Subject: UFO Cover-Ups As University Master Thesis
I've excerpted this from the link below
One Student's Quest For UFO Truth
Oregon State University student Harriet Bridges is "into UFOs"
because she's completing a master thesis, titled "UFO Cover-ups
throughout the 20th and 21st Century." Bridges chose the topic
because Corvallis and the surrounding area have experienced
numerous UFO sightings, going back to the 19th century when
pioneers wrote letters about "strangers in the heavens."
Moreover, Bridges has unearthed a group of Oregon UFO event
posters from the 1960's and 70's that point to ET popularity
that's now, for a number of reasons, is on the comeback.
"I've done some extensive research and writing about UFOs
because it's of interest to me and important part of my master's
degree program," asserts Bridges with a serious look on her
"As far as what UFO files WikiLeaks may have, it's most likely
tied to a series of UFO sightings in eastern Russia in 1977 that
lasted until 1981 with the United States and many European
nations working with Soviet UFO researchers on a project titled:
=91Observations of Anomalous Atmospheric Phenomena in the USSR: A
Statistical Analysis.' This UFO report has numerous connections
with high ranking scientific officials in the U.S., in Europe
and in the United Nations. It's fascinating," she says.
According to Freedom of Information Act and National Achieves
documents, Bridges found the Soviet UFO report under "UFOlogy in
the Soviet Union." The report pointed to a "major UFO
controversy in 1967 where U.S. officials were in conflict with
their Soviet counterparts about what UFO files and information
they would release to the public.
Moreover, Bridges found an official 1974 report from the USSR
Academy of Sciences are "real" in a mathematically provable
sense. Translated, the title of the report is "Observations of
Anomalous Atmospheric Phenomena in the USSR: A Statistical
Analysis." The main author was Dr. Lev Gindilis of the
Shternberg State Astronomical Institute in Moscow. Hughes said
the report was approved for official publication by Academician
Nikolay Kardashev, one of the USSR's top experts in SETI, the
Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence and dubbed the
According to National Archives notes, a copy of this secret --
WikiLeaks type of document -- was smuggled out of the Soviet
Union and found its way to the French government's official UFO
research group, titled "GEPAN."
At the same time, the files point to Dr. J. Allen Hynek
reviewing the GEPAN copy that was also reviewed by famed NASA
scientist Dr. Richard Haines at the Ames Research Center in
California. Haines then had it translated and then reproduced
with a plan for public release.
However, NASA printed a warning on the front of its file copies
of the translation: "This copy is for internal use of NASA
personnel and any reference to this paper must be to the
original foreign source." Access to file copies was restricted
to NASA and contractor personnel.
In brief, both Hynek and Haines and other leading American UFO
experts, said the Soviet report was "earth breaking," and
"proof" that UFOs are a serious national security issue.
"They buried this report, and there's a sort of dead end to
whatever happened to Gindilis," says Hughes who is set to
complete her thesis work.
At the same time, she's concerned that WikiLeaks UFO information
will suffer the same fate and be both protected and buried by
