FAA Issues Order On UFO Sightings

By Jesus Diaz on December 24, 2009 at 6:20 AM
Robert Bigelow is one of my personal heroes, a space man who can – and will – change the world because he believes so. Now, the FAA says that you should call one of his mysterious companies if you see an UFO.

Bigelow’s main space company – Bigelow Aerospace – already has two private test space stations in low Earth orbit: Genesis 1 and 2. His plan is to have a hotel in orbit, and he’s steadily on course to achieve his objectives. The guy and his Errol Flynn moustache may seem eccentric to some, but he means business.

But Bigelow is also a man who truly loves space, and everything that has to do with it. His multi-million dollar investment is not only about hotels in space. Another of his companies is Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies. According to the last order by Federal Aviation Administration – issued on December 10 – BAASS is now the organisation to contact if you are a pilot or an air traffic controller who gets close to an Unidentified Flying Object:

Persons wanting to report UFO/unexplained phenomena activity should contact a UFO/ unex­ plained phenomena reporting data collection centre, such as Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS) (voice: 1-877-979-7444 or e-mail:

They don’t list the number or email of the military, nor some special branch of the Secret Service, nor the CIA, nor NASA. But BAASS. Is this a crazy company? Hardly so. Here’s their own description:

Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS), a sister company to Bigelow Aerospace, is a newly formed research organisation that focuses on the identification, evaluation, and acquisition of novel and emerging future technologies worldwide as they specifically relate to spacecraft. BAASS is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada. We are seeking experienced scientists to join our research teams. If you are an inquisitive outside of the circle thinker, who is detail oriented and who is looking for a challenge, this is a unique and exciting opportunity to advance your career and to be a part of cutting edge research.

If I had the experience they are looking for, I would love to work there, in their secretive base in the Nevada desert. There has to be something going on when they are hiring astrophysics, biochemists, microbiologists, nanotechnolgists, physicists, and propulsion and stealth technology experts. And not only that:

A Masters or PhD in a relevant field is a plus. Candidates must qualify for secret and top secret clearances and must be willing to submit to a thorough background check.

For all positions, some travel – both nationally and internationally – may be required.

Seriously Mr Bigelow, may I be your official blogger? Pretty please? [BAASS via As the Croft Flies]

military industrial complex overtly showing an interest in UFOs...such devil may care attitude. is this just subterfuge for something even bigger?

This has the smell of something significant in the works.

"... they are hiring astrophysics, biochemists, microbiologists, nanotechnolgists, physicists, and propulsion and stealth technology experts."

Sounds like a lot of brain power, just to study Chineese latterns and swamp gas.

I just saw this myself and I am glad you have reported it. Star and flag. The Bigelow company requires TOP SECRET clearance for some employees. they are also now taking FAA UFO reports? very interesting. Something to keep an eye on during the next few months / years.

I suppose it is too much to hope that once these pilot and air traffic controller reports are collected and analysed the findings be made public? So essentially this new project will do nothing to further mainstream UFOlogy.

Or am I missing something?

Thanks for starting your interesting thread, reject

Here's something intriguing....

In the job applications page they have a place for an expert in:

"Biological Cognitive Interaction"

And another thing...

..... why does a symbol of an alien head auto-insert as a prefix when I save the Bigelow link in my favourites? (you know....much as my favourite Formula 1 site has a chequered flag prefix)

Maybe...maybe not

This definitely a thing I will keep my eye on as well! I will S&F once I get off work. (1 hour!)

Good find!

Here is a Wired interview from a few years ago. Apparently he's fairly well-known, and has been accused of being a disinfo agent for some reason red-interview/

"I have an enormous amount of data from a lot of different sources that give me some pretty strong convictions about the authenticity of the existence of anomalous phenomena, such as UFOs."

Hmmm. Watch and wait.
