British ufologist and cryptozoologist, Nick Redfern discussed his latest research and study of numerous people all around the world who, since the late 1940s and early 1950s, have claimed to have made face-to-face contact with very human-like aliens. In addition to detailing the enormous impact the contactee era had on Ufology, he also recounted the stories of famous contactees such as George Adamski, Truman Bethurum, and George Van Tassel.
“Unfortunately, the UFO subject tends to have a short memory,” he observed, “and a lot of people, particularly newcomers to the field, aren’t aware of this pretty significant aspect of the whole UFO field.” Conveying the profound popularity achieved by these early contactees, he cited sales of Adamski’s first book, which exceeded 125,000 copies sold, and Van Tassel’s conferences, which drew upwards of 12,000 attendees. Interestingly, he said, it was not just UFO enthusiasts who were intrigued by the contactees’ stories, they also “attracted a deep attention and concern from the US government.” To that end, he noted that the FBI’s file on Van Tassel ran 400 pages and they sent plain clothes agents to contactees’ lectures to learn more about the messages received from the “space brothers.”
Dispelling the popular notion that the phenomenon ended with that first generation of experiencers, Redfern said that “you can find just as many contactees today as were around in that particular period.” To that end, he expressed dismay that modern contactees are dismissed by the UFO community for fear of losing their credibility. “My view is: it’s an integral part of the subject and we should look at it,” he declared. Redfern also speculated on why the visitors choose one-on-one interactions as opposed to just revealing themselves to the world. He theorized that perhaps they want to bypass the governments of Earth and, instead, “go directly to the people, the populace at large, and sow the seeds at ground level.”
Nick Redfern has been interested in UFOs since 1978. His main area of research centers around determining what has been learned about the UFO subject at an official level in Britain. He has spent hundreds of hours at the Public Record Office in London, and has uncovered thousands of pages of previously-classified Royal Air Force, Air Ministry and Ministry of Defense files on UFOs dating from the Second World War. Nick is the author of several best-selling books on UFOs including: The FBI Files: The FBI’s UFO Top Secrets Exposed; and Cosmic Crashes: The Incredible Story Of The UFOs That Fell To Earth. Nick also lectures on the UFO subject both in the U.K. and abroad.
