Anyone have access to "Science Digest" for 1975?

As part of finishing a thread on Astronomers and UFOs, I'm looking for various accounts of one particular sighting.

I've found quite a few sources (and have compiled a list of a couple of dozen relevant discussions in UFO books), but I'm missing one source that I'd like.

The relevant reference is:

William Stuckey, "The Man who Discovered Planet X,". Science Digest 78 (2) (August 1975), 54-61

So, does anyone have access to the "Science Digest" for 1975?

(Some - probably most - of the relevant text is quoted in other sources which I have got, but relying upon those quotations is less satisfactory than reading a scanned copy of the actual article for myself).

I'd usually circulate such requests on one of the various email discussion lists to which I belong, rather than ATS. I don't often see this type of request on here or other Internet forums. I just thought I'd see what response I get here.

If anyone does have access to this article, I'd be grateful for a scanned copy by email. My email address is simply my ATS username @ gmail.com

All the best,

Isaac

Could you not find this in journal archives of a decent library?

Possibly this, but it's from 1982

If you can find the article, please scan and post, if possible.

I was watching a documentary a while back, and they were talking about this, except they had said 50 years ago it was discovered. I wonder if it's the same article?

In the documentary they were saying something like they didn't think too much about it back then, because it was still 50 years away.

There is a library link on the relevant Google Books page:
books.google.com...

That link suggests I might be able to see some of the issues of this magazine (I think "journal" is a bit grand for this publication - see the sample covers at the link above) at the British Library Reading Room at St Pancras - but that is only open for fairly limited hours which coincide with my working day. I doubt I'll be able to get there for a month or two - which would rather delay knocking my notes into shape on Astronomers and UFOs (but I'm sure one or more colleagues on an email discussion list will already have a copy, so I'll probably just get it that way).

All the best,

Isaac

Thanks, but that's not it. I'm sure I've got the reference right (and the year, i.e. 1975).

All the best,

Isaac

The "Planet X" in the title of the relevant article was Pluto, so I think you have something else in mind.


All the best,

Isaac

Cool.


In that case, I can go to bed and get some sleep.

Night night,

This is incredibly hard to find. I can only manage to find a few pdfs of a few articles. Seems like a good article, hopefully somebody finds it on here.


ETA- I did find something totally amazing while searching for this though, I'm surprised it's not in here, this has a LOT of shiz, there is one old file called "the 10th planet" , not the one you want, but this is just f****g fantastic I found all this. If that article isn't on this, I don't think it's on the net at all lol...

80+ Gigs of AWESOME!!!

Definitely hard to find. I just spent over an hour searching torrents and P2P sites for you with no luck.

I was curious b/c your post reminded me of an article from an old copy of Paranoia magazine I just recently found in my old boxes. I don't have a scanner at home but here is the article link which is entitled "Planet X - Does a Runaway Wrecking Ball Belong to Our System?"
Paranoia Mag Article

The article references other resources and press releases as well as lists some sites for further reading. But beings that it is from 2000, most of the links I tried were out of date.

Good luck and let us know if you find it b/c now I'm dying to read it!
EDIT: Starred/Bump to hopefully get more peeps interested. Someone out there has a copy!

I can't find the publication in the index at my local library or Nottingham University library. Sorry.

That was a good idea, which hadn't occurred to me. I've also checked a few sites now, and not found it.

Will do.

Hopefully, the request that DetectiveT has made will get it.

All the best,

Isaac

Done - I've send a message to the first seller.

I don't think anyone is selling them on Ebay in the UK and hadn't thought to try international sellers until Outrageo posted a link above. I'm waiting for a response from one seller.

All the best,

Isaac

I haven't forgotten about you. I'm still waiting to hear back. If I am unable to get them, I'm hoping they'll fax them to me, do go to your library and ask them if they use WorldCat. If they don't then ask them for one that does. You'll find it in there as well.
