RIP Stanton Friedman
May 14, 2019 7:33 PM   Subscribe

Stanton Friedman (1939-2019) One of the fathers of modern UFOlogy, Friedman was the first civilian investigator of the Roswell Crash, wrote the book on Betty and Barney Hill, fought Philip Klass on national TV, and likely owned many suspenders. He was a tireless speaker on the subject of Flying Saucers- watch this documentary made about him in 2012 to see him in action.

Oh man, I just watched the old Mars Attacks episode of Monstervision that he co-hosted. What a cool weird guy he was.

I've got an ancient two part VHS documentary by him called "UFO's Are REAL!" that was given to me by my mother. I always preferred him and his style to what we get nowadays.

*sigh* I predict a lot of the people who were ranting about Astrology earlier will be in this thread with "I want to believe " jokes.

Debunking the Debunkers was pretty great.
