Scientific paper adresses potential material debris from UFO

Garry P. Nolan and Jacques Vallée are co-authors of a new paper in Progress in Aerospace Sciences (pay-walled) that discusses using modern techniques to study debris associated with a 1977 UFO sighting.

Researchers analysed material from an unsolved UFO case with modern scientific equipment

Quote:How do you do scientific research on the topic of UFOs and get it published in a journal, without shredding your reputation? That was the thought that crossed my mind when I read a recent paper that has managed to navigate that difficult route, with the ‘how’ being neatly answered by its wordy title: “Improved instrumental techniques, including isotopic analysis, applicable to the characterization of unusual materials with potential relevance to aerospace forensics“.

That’s how: make it about the science (‘improved instrumental techniques’) and make it relevant (to ‘aerospace forensics’), and don’t mention the UFO word. Because make no mistake, this piece of research – at its most basic – is really “let’s analyse some stuff that might have fallen out of a UFO”…but what journal is going to publish that?

As such, a team of researchers including Garry P. Nolan (a highly respected Stanford University scientist who has a side-interest in anomalies research) and legendary UFO investigator and author Jacques Vallee* spend the first section of the paper reviewing common modern mass spectrometry techniques applied to the analysis of unknown materials across many fields, and give an overview of improvements made to these technologies in recent years. They then “review practical experiences applying these techniques to the simplest case of the characterization of solid materials”.

It is only then that the researchers correlate these fields with the analysis of “a well-documented, still-unexplained incident, initially thought to be of aerospace origin, which gave rise to the deposition of unknown material”. But even still, they frame the introduction of this case as part of “a wider range of issues in reverse engineering of complex, esoteric materials, and aerospace forensics.”
