The 23rd IUFOC brought one of the best turn outs to date and the array of varying topics from credible speakers garnered praises from many attendees. Here is a sampling of the speakers from Day 3 of the event.
How Modern Physics is Revealing the Technology of UFOs
9:00 — 10:15 am
Robert Schroeder is the author of the book Solving the UFO Enigma: How Modern Physics is Revealing the Technology of UFOs. The book and talk focus on the evolution of modern physics and how recent theories are pointing toward a likely explanation of UFO physics. In a nutshell it was once thought that the idea of extra dimensions was strictly the domain of science fiction. That has all changed in the last several decades as physicists appear to be closing in on a final “theory of everything” which suggests we may live in an eleven dimensional universe. These cutting edge theories are now being tested at the Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator in Geneva, Switzerland. Spectrographic data from actual UFO sightings would confirm if these craft are using technology we are now on the cusp of unraveling.
Crop Circles & The Real Circlemakers
10:30 — 11:45 am
Delve into the crop circle phenomenon with a film maker who has visited more than 100 crop circles personally. After having an out-of-body-experience in the center of an English crop circle in 2007, Patty Greer produced five full feature UFO documentaries. With no previous training or experience in film making whatsoever, she zoned in on the UK crop circles and the “balls of light” seen in and around them. Greer takes the study into a new realm of possibilities, sharing daunting footage and clips from her documentaries as potential evidence that (ET) balls of light may be involved in the creation of (many) crop circles!
Beyond UFOs: The Scientific Search for Extraterrestrial Life and Its Astonishing Implications for Our Future
1:00 — 2:15 pm
Is there really life beyond Earth? Astrophysicist and author Jeffrey Bennett will talk about why this question has become a hot topic of scientific research, and discuss how scientists are searching both for microbial life and extraterrestrial intelligence. Along the way, we’ll also see why the possibility of life beyond Earth has profound implications for the future of our species, even in the unlikely event that we are alone in the universe. This talk is based in part on Dr. Bennett’s award-winning book Beyond UFOs.
Celebrity UFO Encounters: True Stories of Famous Names and Their Famous Sightings
2:30 — 3:45 pm
Instead of dwelling in the territory of rumor, speculation and tabloid fodder, Travel Channel host, journalist, and author Aaron Sagers delves into the documented stories of UFO sightings by famous actors, rock stars, politicians, and more, including Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Victoria Beckham. Instead of relying on third-person accounts, Sagers utilizes his own interviews and direct sourcing to recount stories as told by the celebrities. Along the way, he also discounts other well-known sighting stories.
PANEL: Science and the Search for Extraterrestrial Life
Featuring Richard Hoover, Jeffrey Bennett, and Ted Peters.
4:00 — 5:30 pm
