Ken Johnston, 74, who did have a minor honorable role in the Apollo program, is in India being honored by an aerospace academy in Chennai. He has long posed as an 'astronaut consultant pilot' [he actually flunked out of flight school] and an astronaut selectee dropped at the last minute by changes in requirements [he never met the minimum standards to apply], but actually appearing in public as a real astronaut is a new level of make-believe. Those poor academics in India paid for his trip there, based on his claimed status. This can only end in tears.

Most surprising for an institution of higher learning, the Indian professors never found out his "PhD" was a worthless certificate bought from a post office box in Denver. www.jamesoberg.com...

India has always been a dubious place when it comes to science & technology. They have some dodgy scientists (like the guy who claimed he found signs of life in a meteorite) or dodgy projects (like a supercomputer allegedly based on ancient Vedic belief).

So no big surprise an American conman/hoaxer was able to fool them.

By no means, I like the guy, he's a sweet old geezer -- and i have no problem with our generation BS'ing the kiddies about what we actually did. It's when he gets into vicious accusations of fraud against people I worked with, now unable to defend their own reputations, that i draw the line.

I take your point, but I do have a problem with BS-ing the younger generation. There are enough of them who think it's BS to start with without this guy and others like him adding to it by making a living telling lies - even if they've been telling them so long they've started to believe them.

Agreed, especially when he uses his FAKE credentials to support the credibility of his FAKE UFO stories. That's why I've dug out the actual facts about his biographical claims, and used them to debunk his UFO stories. But there are plenty of other harmless old guys with stories that happened to other people, that they 'remember' happening to them -- but those stories were REAL and the actual authorship is unimportant.

I've found TWENTY personal Facebook pages where Indian kids and their families were thrilled to meet a "real astronaut". This is very sad.

Space is for everybody. It’s not just for a few people in Science or Math or for a select group of astronauts. That’s our new frontier out there, and it’s everybody’s curiosity to know about space.
Today @HIS,Guindy students from Grade 3 to 7 had a mind blowing interactive session with Dr.Ken Johnston Sr., Astronaut, NASA Whistle blower, Mr.Shaun Moss, International TEDx Speaker, Mars Research Station. Students got answers for their questions related to Mars, black hole, becoming an astronaut, galaxies and so on. Have a glimpse of it.

I wonder what happens when his hosts check out his academic credentials?
