Just before rolling film, the director wanted Michalak to relax
and feel more comfortable in front of the cameras. He began
talking with him about the weather, his work, what Canada was
like and other nonchalant topics. Then, the director said,
"Well, Steve, I guess your being burned by the UFO was the most
incredible thing that has ever happened in your life." To the
surprise of everyone on the set, Michalak answered, "Oh, no, it
wasn't." Prodded further, Michalak bravely told the story of his
experiences in the Nazi death camps, speaking bluntly and
unwaveringly about the atrocities he witnessed firsthand. No one
dared interrupt his story, and when he was finished, the set was
filled with a stunned silence; the entire crew was awestruck.
Later, one of the crew said to me, "This guy is the most
credible we've ever interviewed. What's being burned by a flying
saucer compared with Nazi ovens?" From that moment on, Michalak
was treated with much respect and dignity, justly deserved. The
questioning regarding the UFO turned from "Did it really
happen?" to "What happened?"
The scope of this intense investigation cannot be understated.
The Falcon Lake case may well be one of the most intensely
investigated well-documented on record. The case presents a
number of elements of particular interest to researchers:
1. Michalak's burns and other physiological effects;
2. the ground traces found at the site;
3. radioactivity allegedly associated with the site;
and 4. mysterious metal fragments found at the site.
The lack of radioactivity at the time is important, because on
May 19, 1968, Michalak again visited the site with a friend. In
his report to the Condon Committee, Roy Craig said Michalak
. . . massive pieces of radioactive material in a fissure of the
rock within the "landing circle." This . . . consisted of two
W-shaped bars of metal, each about 4.5 in. long, and several
smaller pieces of irregular shape. These items were said to have
been found about 2 in. below a layer of lichen in the rock
fissure. . . . the two fragments each consisted of a central
massive metal portion which was not radioactive. One of these was
93% and the other 96% silver. Both contained copper and cadmium,
and had a composition similar to that found in commercially
available sterling silver or sheet silver. The metal was coated
with a tightly-adhering layer of quartz sand, similar to that
used as a foundry sand. This also was not radioactive. The
radioactivity was contained in a loosely-adhering layer of
fine-grained minerals containing uranium. This layer could be
removed readily by washing and brushing. The minerals were
uranophane and thorium-free pitchblende, characteristically found
in vein deposits.
