|Guests:||Mack Maloney, Michio Kaku|
In the course of researching his novels, military fiction writer Mack Maloney discovered startling historical records of an increase of UFO sightings near pivotal military events. He discussed a variety of incidents from World Wars I & II, as well as Viet Nam and other battle zones. One of the earliest cases he found dated back to the time of Alexander the Great, when his army was planning a siege on the city of Tyre, and "flying shields" let out a lightning bolt that destroyed one of the city's walls, which allowed Alexander's army to get in. Proceeding WWI, "scareships" were reported by British newspapers in 1909. They were described as dirigible-like craft that emitted huge searchlights and could travel as fast 200 mph.
In World War II, there were reports that crews of allied bombers would see fantastic aircraft flying just 100-200 ft. off their wing. These strange craft, which became known as "foo fighters," would not take action or interfere with the bombings. One of the foo fighters was described as an enormous cigar-shaped, brightly lit craft that flew in formation with the bombers. Incidents such as these led Maloney to theorize that rather than ETs, the UFO occupants were time travelers who came back to observe significant time periods, such as during wars-- to see history as it was being made.
In the "ghost rocket" sightings of 1946, which took place in a remote area of Sweden, hundreds of long tubular objects flying in formation were seen. While they resembled cruise missiles, this was years before that technology was developed, he noted. Maloney also detailed bizarre incidents that took place in Viet Nam, such as when a bright object came down on top of an American base, illuminating the entire area, while all electricity was knocked out; and a UFO that hung over Hanoi for a period of two hours, while the North Vietnamese shot at it to no effect.
Giant Black Holes
First hour guest, theoretical physicist Dr. Michio Kaku commented on the discovery of two gigantic black holes, as well as other science and space news. The black holes have a staggering mass that is 20 billion times that of our sun, and are 10 times the size of our solar system. Intriguingly, he suggested that the billions of stars that fell into such a black hole could be shot out the other end through a "white hole" in a process like the Big Bang.
Mack Maloney shares illustrations featured in his new book, UFOs in Wartime, in tandem with his 12/06/11 appearance. Pictured is a depiction of the 'Foo Fighters' from WWII. Click here to view the full set.
