UFO Tourism

November 16, 2012

For those who couldn’t go on vacation until know, here is one reason to go soon as you can. Mostly because UFO tourism is one of the tourism types that we can enjoy all year.

Such tourism initiatives had proved beneficial in different countries. Take the Roswell example.  Many people believe a UFO crashed in Roswell, in 1947 and now they have a museum, conferences and a city parade where everyone dresses up as aliens. And of course The Roswell Experience!

And there are so many other hot places!

For example, New Zealand is also a hot bed for UFO activity. The country’s famed Kaikoura sighting in December 1978 sounds especially juicy.

Allegedly, in 2008, there was a display of unexplained lights in the night sky above Mezcala, Mexico. Is was characterized as a mass sighting because that were hundreds of individuals reporting a potentially extraterrestrial object.

Area 51, the military base located in the southern part of Nevada is another great example. Allegedly, this is also a location of research facility S-4.

And there are a lot of other places!

But for those how can’t go on vacation we can always sit on our porch and look to the sky waiting for some kind of contact!

What do you think about all the places where, allegedly, there were some kind of UFO contact? Or is just bogus designed to boost tourism to otherwise totally unremarkable little towns?

The Future of UFO research

November 6, 2012

The Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena (ASSAP), an organization involved in UFO research, affirmed that the occurrence of “significant UFO events” has dropped notably over the past 2 decades. In addition, they said that this trend  has become so extreme that the UFO debate now focuses on only a handful of events, including claims that flying saucer crashed at Roswell in New Mexico in the 1940’s.

The same organization noted too a change in the nature of reported sightings and added that over the past 30 years classical sightings have been largely displaced by claims of UFO abductions.

A comparison has been made. While in 1972 UFO crashes were unknown or disregarded, in 2012 they effectively dominate the subject.  Assap added that the subject become influenced by conspiracy theories whose implications take ufology into extreme and alarming directions.

By contrast, Nick Pope told the Sunday Telegraph that there is a future for the subject. He stated that “There’s a quantity versus quality issue here”.

Channel 4 News Science Editor, Tom Clarke, explains why UFO watchers should not give up hope just yet.

It is perhaps inevitable that ‘traditional’ UFO enthusiasts would have to abandon the faith. The little green men in flying saucers and unexplained lights in the sky just have not stood up to scrutiny. The same advances in science and technology that made them seem plausible have failed to confirm they exist.

But to me it seems a shame that the UFO hunters may be giving up at a time when we are closer than ever to finding life in other worlds.

Rather than hearing cries from distant aliens, radio telescopes found equally incredible messages from beaming pulsars and the faint echoes of the big bang itself.

In 1992 the idea of planets beyond our solar system – so called extrasolar planets – was purely theoretical. But now astronomers are now finding real lost worlds almost everywhere they look. As of the beginning of this week 843 planets in 665 planetary systems have been discovered… and counting.

Few of these planets are suitable for life as we know it, but many are close. Just last month an Earth-sized planet was discovered orbiting our nearest neighbouring star Alpha Centuri. And statistically, the odds of a world similar to ours aren’t bad at all.

Based on data from NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler telescope there could be 500 million Earth-like planets in our galaxy alone.

Estimates of the number of galaxies in the universe vary quite a bit, but we are talking hundreds of billions – you get the general idea. What’s more, the chemicals that make up the likely building-blocks of carbon-based life are being found in the furthest reaches of space.

This summer, Danish scientists discovered sugar molecules just floating in space around a star 400 light years away. And now too, we have unprecedented power to reach out and find life directly.

This week the Mars curiosity rover began the rather odd task of sniffing for methane on the surface of Mars. Detecting it could indicate the presence of belching bacterial life-forms within the soil.

So far, not a whiff. But the truth is out there.

So, what is your opinion about this subject?

The Roswell Location-based Experience

September 5, 2012

I found this a few days ago and I need to share it! I think more cities should do something like this to improve and promote the UFO tourism!

Local production company Airhart Media created a location-based experience that told Roswell’s secret history of how aliens influenced the work of Goddard, Oppenheimer and others.

The Roswell Experience is a location-based story told across 32 locations in Roswell, New Mexico, US which uses a fictional alien, Vrillon, to introduce visitors to the area’s rich history.

32 businesses and points-of-interest around the town held story segments that were unlocked by tweeting or texting the code found at the location. Each story segment was piece of a bigger puzzle that revealed the GPS coordinates of an alien landing.

The experience started with a crop circle and finished with an alien landing in Roswell’s Spring River Park & Zoo

The presentation below showcase the work of Airhart Media of Roswell, New Mexico, US and how Conducttr was used to support this new form of local, interactive storytelling.
