Appearing in the second half of the show, researcher Michael Salla discussed a possible comet collision that former air traffic controller/alien contactee Eric Julien claims will occur. He reportedly studied the path of comet 73P Schwassmann-Wachmann and declared that a fragment is highly likely to impact the Earth on or around May 25, 2006. Salla said that Julien based this on the comet's position in the ecliptic plane using NASA's Near Earth Object tracking program and was also given messages about the date by his ET contacts.
The "exopolitical" aspects of the potential event were of special interest to Salla, who noted that the May 25th date could coincide with a nuclear attack on Iran and that the ETs may have been involved in creating the comet's fragments.
2nd hour guest, Paola Harris, an investigative journalist who specializes in ufology, spoke about her interview with Paul Hellyer, the former Canadian defense minister who has gone public with his UFO views. He told her he thought Col. Corso's book, The Day After Roswell, seemed credible to him and that he recognized many of the names in it. Hellyer expressed concerns over militarizing space in order to attack ETs, and suggested instead, that we learn from these beings and enter into an "intergalactic conversation" with them. Harris also shared a report on Monsignor Corrado Balducci, who told conference goers in Rome that Mexico is "blessed" with UFO sightings.
