The first major scientific inquiry since the Condon Report
One of the major mysteries of our time, it continues to evoke intense
public interest but has received scant scientific scrutiny—until now...
The UFO Enigma
For over fifty years, the modern UFO controversy has raged between
believers and debunkers, with very little input from the scientific
community. The only unclassified, government-sponsored scientific study in
the United States was the Colorado Project, which led to the 1967 Condon
Report advising the Air Force that further examination of UFOs was
useless. Official U.S. investigation came to a grinding halt-while other
countries, most notably France, continued with research programs that
found dramatic new evidence.
Now, in a major report commissioned by Laurance S. Rockefeller,
world-renowned scientists debate the physical evidence in puzzling cases
presented by UFO investigators. The UFO Enigma overrides the
Condon Report and concludes that there is much we could learn from further
study of the phenomenon-if the evidence is carefully collected and
An international panel of scientists grilled UFO researchers and
examined dozens of cases including:
- Paris, 1984: Military radar confirms a commercial airline pilot's
report of a gigantic disk, more than a half mile in diameter.
- Mansfield, Ohio, 1978: Four crew members of an Army Reserve
helicopter give vivid accounts of an encounter with an unknown cylindrical
object, during which their flight control system malfunctioned.
- Southern France, 1981: Police and scientific investigators find
physical traces in the soil and biochemical changes in vegetation at the
location of a reported landing of an ovoid object.
- Dayton, Texas, 1980: Three witnesses who observe a large, flaming
object subsequently suffer debilitating radiation-type injuries.
A report on the conference findings along with supporting case
material, The UFO Enigma is not about alleged abductions or
government cover-ups, nor about purported hoaxes or "shared illusions."
With its focused scope and sober assessment by a distinguished scientific
panel, its findings may be even more challenging-and more disturbing-than
any of us dared to imagine.
