Product Description

From the Back Cover

The debate about UFO′s has raged for as long as people have stared into the heavens. Yet to this day the scientific establishment has steadfastly refused to engage in systematic study of what they are. This book examines why.

Randles and Warrington establish by detailed case histories of many UFO sightings that unexplained phenomena certainly exist. Picking their way expertly through the maze of misinformation and fantasy, they examine the possible explanations, rejecting the ′standard′ view– that UFO′s are alien spaceships– in favour of more scientifically based and testable ideas. They suggest ways in which scientific standard should be applied and consider the fruits that such enquiries might yield– and the potential consequences for mankind of explaining the hitherto inexplicable.

About the Author

Jenny Randles is National Director of Investigations at the British UFO Research Association. Peter Warrington is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and Editor of the Manchester Astronomical Society Journal of Record.

This book had its value back then, but it did get old somehow.
It tries to be objective and scientific, skeptic, but end up been annoying. At that time it was not too fashionable to state the obvious, that there were plenty of cases that were clear that they were intelligent guided devices. It was a phase that ufology had to pass through, some good points here and there, but it seems to me that science was used as cowardice in good part of the book.
