It could have been an “X-Files” episode: More than 20 years ago, U.S. airmen reported seeing a “strange glowing object” near a British air base. Before this week, the document has only been seen by about 20 people who requested access to it through the U.S. Freedom of Information Act. Update: Stop being a pain, ok? Read Rule No8 before posting too.
UK Opens Files on UFO Sightings

If they are going to open up the files, there should be a link to them online.
Interesting story though. I get all my “out there news” from http://www.unknowncountry.com
I think UFOs could be powered by the Biefeld-Brown effect.
BTW, that was fast Eugenia. This place will go to hell when you leave.
I assume that this is here because, as an advanced civilisation, the aliens were using open source software. Why is it here, ctually?
Everyone knows that aliens are contractually obligated to use WindowsXP.
For the curious _open-minded_: Check out http://www.disclosureproject.org
was at http://www.boblazar.com
It requires a membership fee now, but at one time it was free. It was the most scientic explaination of the technology of ufos.
Bob Lazar was a scientist employed by the US gov’t to reverse engineer the ufo. His wife filed for divorce, and the gov’t thought he was going through a tough time, and should no longer do that work. So they fired him. Thats when he came out in the open about everything, explaining what they know and what they don’t know. The most fascintating part was how they traveled faster than the speed of light. He basically said that to get from A to B, is not a straight line, but A and B are bent together, then unbent. He explained different types of gravity waves. He also explained how the ships are powered (element115).
He also had proof that he worked there. W4 tax forms, his clearance, badge, employee directory, and even maps of the research area.
While very fun what does this have to do with OSnews ?
And because Bob Lazar can prove he worked there, that proves that his claims to have worked on advanced alien technology are absolutely correct…
Also, there’s a good report on the Fortean Times website about the Rendelsham ‘non-incident’:
… at least until an actual alien space craft is sighted, professionally photographed (and I don’t mean “well, the aliens must have distorted my film” or “well, as you can see in this photo, this blob of white and blue is the alien ship”) and extensively physically examined by a dozen respected scientists from several educational and professional backgrounds.
Or as some say, I’ll believe it [if and] when I see it.
Non-terrestrial life no doubt exists (a mathematically rational assumption). Aliens may have visited here, but there has yet to be one single piece of actual proof. Little implants in people’s nose, pieces of film with footage of alien disections, and all that other “proof” is a bunch of nonsense. There’s always a catch or a rational explanation that UFOlogists refuse to consider.
It would be nice to believe in all these alien sightings(after all, I am a science fiction junkie)… but, hell… you just CAN’T. Unless you’re willing to accept everything on a “religious” (and blind) faith, which I am not.
This topic is so worn out and trite that it’s embarrassing.
Because it is fun!!!
It reminds me of Jeff Goldblum blowing up the alien ship in “Independence Day” with his PowerBook, assumedly using Mac OS 8. Now that’s what I call networking!! 😉
Have to agree with most comments here, I fail to see why it was posted on OSnews.
Just because the name of the site is osnews.com doesnt mean that Eugenia cant publish anything that she finds interesting, or she assumes will interest the readers.
Besides, it is a “geekish” site, so why not publish an article about general geeky things now and then?
Eugenia, once in a awhile, will post a story like this for fun. Boy, some of you are wet blankets – have some fun!!
They came and replaced my VIM with EMACS….. and I will not even mention the anal probes….
I hereby start:
Militant fraction against the evil aliens forces….. who’s with me?
Slashdot’s “News for Nerds” slogan is sufficiently squishy to let this sort of thing show up, sure, so if OSNews is basically Slashdot with a lower noise level, this is right on target–and it’s obvious some readers think that’s what it is, given the comments above. I fully respect the “it’s about whatever we say it is” editorial approach (I’ve used it myself in the past in print publishing), but OSNews’ slogan of “Exploring the Future of Computing” does suggest a more narrow focus. When a story gets too far afield from that, it’s going to generate a certain amount of flak–and ya know, maybe it should.
http://www.serve.com/mahood/lazar/critiq.htm is just one example.
Its pretty easy to find fault with everything he says, like:
“On the bottom side of the disk are the three gravity generators. When they want to travel to a distant point, the disk turns on its side.”
Yeah, it would turn on its side, right? Going from point A to B in a horizontal line is something one only does on a level plane. There is no up/down/left/right in space.
The reason I did not moded down your comments was simply so I could add the answer you seek “why this was posted here” in the front page.
Please stop being a pain in the butt. If I want to make a story about how to plant carrot seeds, just because I find it interesting, I will do so too.
Most of the imbeciles who post “why is this here?” already _know_ why it’s here. They just want to make a nuisance of themselves. Notice how many of those comments are posted as “anonymous”.
So maybe you should just start deleting those posts. That’s what I’d do — if the post has no relevant content and has an intentionally negative spin (which many of these do) then delete it and pretend nothing happenned. It won’t take long before these idiots get tired and find some other site to harrass. (and if they don’t get tired atleast we won’t have to read their half-wit comments)
Another solution might be to track them down and kill them. I enjoy that solution but something tells me it won’t go over well with the law.
I am eagerly awaiting the carrot seed story.
What is MODs ufo files url?
Maybe he’s walking a fine line. Telling his story gave him visibility so that it looks suspicious if he disappears. Expounding bogus pseudoscientific theories on saucer operation may make it not worthwhile (for those who want to) to get rid of him.

Vegetables have rights too…..
This is excellent information. When reading science fiction, I love when the author has some knowledge about physics and whatnot. The funny thing is, you can easilly believe a good story teller if they use the right words in the right ways. Then, if you take what they used as their “techno babble” and try to bring it into reality, you find how completely “made-up” it is. Sad and interesting at the same time. As a science fiction writer, seeing someone debunk the BS of science fiction or a general kook is REALLY fun!
People often make the assumption that science(ours), in it’s current form, can explain everything. Can we prove that there is no up/down/left/right in space? I believe our understanding of space is still in it’s infancy. Theories continue to change day to day and science and the laws that go with it are relative.
I am fully convinced that those organizations for skeptics are indeed a cult.They rely on others to them what is the truth about a matter. What is funny is that these people dont seem to be able to deferentiate with what they are doing and healthy skepticsm. Everyone of us have some level of skepticsm. But I believe that it is up to the individual to put check on that. I dont need to rely on an organization to “teach me how to think critically”. Somehow they think they can sit in a couch and reason things out,with limited or without any experience at all.
If I decide to believe in UFOs, based on evidence that I check out myself, it is my own interpretation. If I dont have the interest or if i am unable to check out for myself…I reserve my preservation.
er…beliefs…not reservation. Darn I need to get a bigger monitor…
don’t you get it? It’s all a big cover-up! Did you honestly believe that OSNews really stood for “Open Source” News? Or even just “Oddly Satisfying” News?
No! OSNews = Outer Space News! There you have it. It’s been staring us right in the face all along, and we did not see it!
So Eugenia truly was on topic with this post, all along. And all the other posts on this site about Open Source were just a smoke screen – all this time …
Come to think of it … simply look at her name: EugenIA!
Another hint … don’t you see it? Just reverse the last two letters, and you get: EugenAI – as in “Artificial Intelligence”! She’s the “Commander Data” of OSNews! (And, admittedly, the cutest Android I’ve met in a long time)
So, you can see: the truth is out there! We just have to look hard enough to see it.
