UFO Researcher Stanton Friedman Dead at 84

Nuclear physicist and famed UFO researcher Stanton Friedman has died at 84, the CBC reports.

Friedman, who devoted his life to researching and investigating unidentified flying objects, was credited with bringing the 1947 Roswell incident to the mainstream – according to Time Magazine, Friedman “painstakingly sought out and interviewed other witnesses, and came to a dramatic conclusion: there had been a cover-up of ‘cosmic Watergate’ proportions.”

The Roswell incident was the first case where the U.S. military and the federal government was thought to have covered up a UFO crash.

Friedman grew up in Linden, New Jersey, and worked as a nuclear physicist for 14 years for General Electric, Westinghouse, and McDonnell-Douglas.

He became interested in UFOs in 1958 and started lecturing on the topic in 1967.

“The universe works on fusion folks — like it or not,” he said during a lecture in 2018. “That’s what goes on in all those stars out there and so we’re babes in the woods. It’s not surprising that we haven’t expanded our thinking . . . I expect that my great-grandson will be alive when we send visitors to other planets, maybe colonies out there — and maybe we welcome a biannual meeting of the galactic federation global neighborhood association, so to speak.”
