did anyone catch the latest "Nasa's Unexplained" last night? I missed it and tried pulling it up from on Demand this morning, but it wasn't on there yet.
Seminal skeptical investigation of UFO stories associated with early manned space missions, published within a few years of the actual missions and the first published UFO accounts. 'Space World' magazine, published by Ray Palmer, was indexed in the "Readers Guide to Periodic Literature" (a pre-Internet 'paper search engine') so the existence of these explanations was easily determined by any serious researcher -- but the explanations were overlooked or omitted by almost all pro-UFO writers. Discusses Jim McDivitt's "beer-can shaped" object on Gemini-4 (including the Condon Commission's assessment), a Gemini-7 photo allegedly showing a pair of luminous UFOs, reports from X-15 flights and from moonbound Apollo missions, and photographs from the Skylab space station. Blobby photos from Carpenter's Mercury-7 mission are compared with a similar-looking image of a known structure on Gemini-5. Comments from Richard Underwood, head of the photo analysis office at the astronaut center, and from astronauts Richard Gordon, Pete Conrad, and others, plus description of NASA 'moon pigeon report' on debris sightings. Examples of misrepresentation of ordinary photos by UFO authors, including James Harder and George Fawcett. Details of Gemini-11 satellite fly-by, Apollo-12 moonbound companions, with prosaic explanations.
I still cannot locate any 4th installment of the Science Channels excellent "Nasa's Unexplained Files,". I am beginning to wonder if there is a possibility that someone was not happy with this program when it first aired. I believe Mr. Oberg said he saw it, but unlike all the other installments, this one just is NOT available. Why????????
