Stanton Friedman gave his Keynote Presentation FLYING SAUCERS AND SCIENCE at the 2017 Ozark Mountain UFO Conference in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. After 58 years of study and investigation, nuclear physicist Stanton T. Friedman has summarized his views about flying saucers. He is convinced that the evidence is overwhelming that SOME UFOs are intelligently controlled extraterrestrial spacecraft, that the subject represents a Cosmic Watergate, that there are no good objections to these conclusions, and that flying saucer reality and its cover-up is the biggest story of the past millennium. His lecture covers 5 large scale scientific studies that most people are not aware of. He reviews the four major reasons leaders in the scientific and journalistic communities have not yet jumped on the pro-UFO bandwagon. He covers landing trace cases and the star map seen by Betty Hill on board a flying saucer and the scientific investigation of it by Marjorie Fish. That work focuses on two sun-like Stars (Zeta 1 and Zeta 2 Reticuli) only 39.3 light years from Earth, only an eighth of a light year apart from each other, and at least a billion years older than the sun. He reviews possible fission and fusion rockets on some of which he has worked and notes how close we, a primitive society whose major activity is tribal warfare, are to interstellar travel. No wonder aliens are visiting!
