Subject: Astronauts Kept Secret For Fear Of Dismissal


There's a programme on BBC Radio called The Life Scientific with
presenter Jim Al Khalili in which the latest episode featured
his interview with Professor Alan Watson who has spent 40 years
trying to unravel the mysteries of cosmic rays.

Somewhere half way through the Professor revealed a little
snippet which says something about the taboo that exists in
reporting extraordinary experiences for fear of being thought

Professor Watson said that during the disastrous Apollo 13
flight, because they were thrown into complete darkness, the
crew witnessed flashes of light which are now known to be the
result of cosmic ray bombardment.

But the Professor revealed that he had had a conversation with
an astronaut who revealed that previously all the astronauts had
experienced the weird lights but had not reported them because
they feared being taken off the space program.

If individuals were scared to speak up about a few flashes of
light then one can maybe understand their reluctance to report
