Such cheesy and 1950's style names... right up there with Buck Rogers.
Imagine that, humans land on analien planet "Greetings Aliens. Take me to your leader. I am commander Keen from the Planet Earth. We come in peace."
Shoot me now... Oo
I don't think it matters whether Schneiders picture or Stranges is the real Valiant Thor , I think they're both of a fictional character
The Final Briefing on board of the USS Eldridge
"Another photograph very much in doubt can be found on the web page "The Life of Ed Cameron" . Next to the description "Final briefing inside the USS Eldridge August 9, 1943 we read: Lecturer - A. Yaglu, Don Thor, Oscar Schneider, Lawrence Schmidt (Maxon Electronics Corp.), Morris Hablagnian, Dr. Vannevar Bush." A 'ready room' onboard the USS Eldridge is shown. Allegedly this picture was taken on August 9, 1943 and shows the test crew of the USS Eldridge inside the ship, assembled for a briefing.
We sent this picture to some people, who would be able to distinguish what the insides of this class of ship looked like. Nobody else could this do better than these people who actually take care of one of the last three remaining Destroyer Escort vessels of the Cannon Class that is left in the USA. In Albany, N.Y. you can still locate the USS Slater (DE 766), now preserved as a wartime memorial, which is open to public visits. Mr. Tim Rizzuto, who is taking care about the ship, received that photo from Bielek's web site from me and with that photo in his hands he walked through the whole ship [the Slater] from bow to stern, and couldn't find a room, which in any way matches the room shown on the photograph either by size, shape or fittings. Have a look yourself, the people of the Slater provide an Electronic Tour through their ship. The biggest rooms are the Ward Room and the Crew Mess, which are still much smaller than the room shown on the photograph 'The Final Briefing'. To get additional opinions, I sent the photograph of the alleged test crew to two US navy vets, who were doing duty onboard a Destroyer Escort of the Cannon Class during WW II. Both took a look at the photograph and replied that it in no way was this photograph taken onboard a Cannon Class Destroyer Escort. Remember that the USS Eldridge was of this class.
The Final Briefing ?
This is what a true expert says about that photo from Bielek.com. Tim Rizzuto, ship restorer of the museum ship DE 766, USS Slater, Albany:
"No way was it taken on a DE. There is no space that big. I'd guess it's on a carrier or cruiser because of the size of the space and the false bulkhead particians. My guess is that it was taken in the sixties based on the fluorescent lights (modern) in the overhead, but the old RBO radio on the shelf in the bulkhead. It appears to be a messing or lounge space. Note that it is also a battle dressing station because the mounting brackets for surgical lights are in the overhead."
When one looks at the photograph,
which I have, of the final briefing on
the 9th of August, 1943, aboard the
Eldridge, the group is of distinguished
scientists (civilians mostly) and a
couple of military men. Also in the
picture was Dr. Oscar O. Snyder, the
M.D. in charge of all the tests. The
lecturer was a man who was a Ph.D.
in subatomic physics, and he was an
Indian guy by birth, sub-continent
India; name was, I think, Yaglu. He
gave the final briefing and lecture.
Its not about looks. Humans here are a cosmic soup as well. Humanoids throughout the cosmos look like us, or variations of us, or similar as with some greys and felines. Some are splitting images. Some are very tall, however.edit on 14-9-2013 by Unity_99 because: (no reason given)

Wish the photo was larger...I can't quite see those 'SIX' fingers on his hand.
