Stanton Friedman on UFOs, SETI and Stephen Hawking (MUFON 2010)

Nuclear Physicist Stanton Friedman discusses the problems with the way modern scientists approach the UFO subject. Especially those from the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), and Stephen Hawking.

He is the original civilian investigator of the Roswell incident. He studied physics at the University of Chicago and worked as a nuclear physicist on Research and Development projects for several large companies.

He is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Canada.

In 1970 Friedman departed full-time employment as a physicist to pursue the scientific investigation of UFOs. Since then, he has lectured at more than 600 colleges and 100 professional groups in 50 states, nine provinces, and 16 foreign countries. Additionally, he has worked as a consultant on the topic.

He has published more than 80 UFO related papers and has appeared on many radio and television programs. He has also provided written testimony to Congressional hearings and appeared twice at the United Nations.

Friedman used to refer to himself as "The Flying Saucer Physicist" due to his degrees in nuclear physics and work on nuclear projects.

Friedman has consistently favored use of the term flying saucer in his work, saying "Flying saucers are, by definition, unidentified flying objects, but very few unidentified flying objects are flying saucers. I am interested in the latter, not the former."

Stanton Terry Friedman (born July 29th, 1934) is a professional Ufologist, currently residing in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.
