Science, UFOs And The Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence
Alejandro Rojas

Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the SETI Institute, recently
wrote in a The Huffington Post blog that UFOs are "a phenomenon
worthy of attention," and I agree. SETI is in the business of
searching for signals from intelligent extraterrestrial
civilizations, and although Shostak's story continued to
highlight some of the wild email correspondence he receives from
people convinced that ET is already visiting us, SETI was once
viewed as fringe itself. However, devoted scientists worked hard
to make their case and in the process have gathered other
scientists from multiple disciplines to join in the discussion
and research topics related to SETI. Now their work is accepted
by the mainstream, so much so that it seems hardly a week goes
by without some major media outlet writing about what SETI is up
to lately.

I think this is a great model for what needs to happen in the
UFO research community, so I am working to make that happen.
Just like the brilliant, forward-thinking scientists that helped
develop the field of scientific study we now refer to as SETI,
there are brilliant, forward-thinking scientists from multiple
disciplines who are interested in looking deeper into the UFO
mystery. I am gathering some of these academics and members of
the mainstream media to take a serious hard look at the
phenomena in relation to other space mysteries. This event is
called the Cosmic Exploration Conference: Science, UFOs and the
Search for Extraterrestrial Life and is being held in Las Vegas
in October. I have also launched a Kickstarter project to seek
funding to video tape the lectures and post them on YouTube.
