Have you ever seen strange lights in the sky? How about odd shaped vessels floating around in the air. If you have and cannot explain its nature, you have seen an unidentified flying object, better known as a UFO. On this week’s show, we’re going to venture into the world that’s working to figure out what these mysterious craft happen to be. It’s known as Ufology.
Out guest for the entire episode is Ryan Sprague. He’s one of the prominent members of this community and has shared his views in a variety of ways from written articles, interviews with news outlets, his podcast, Somewhere in the Skies, and his latest project, the television program, Roswell: Mysteries Decoded, which appeared on CW’s streaming network, CW Seed.
We first learn about the nature of ufology including most importantly, what it’s not. While there are several stereotypes, the true goal of ufology is to find answers to questions we simply do not yet know about the crafts themselves, whether alien or human made. We hear about the work that is being performed and some of the advancements in the field that have opened the door to even greater interest.
We continue the discussion to explore how ufology is performed and shared with the community. As one of the most prolific members of the community, we learn about his passion for discovery and how he tries to ensure his work is both accurate and also compelling. We hear about the detractors, for which there are many, and about the scientific staple, the conference.
In our SASS Class, we explore the phenomenon known as Alienstock. First conceived as an invasion of the infamous Area 51, where apparently extraterrestrial life and technology are housed, it has become an opportunity for anyone who has an interest in UFOs and of course aliens to find a like-minded community.
