Michael Luckman is director of the New York Center for Extraterrestrial Research and founder of the Cosmic Majority, an organization that seeks to advance the views of the majority of people living on planet Earth who believe in UFOs, life on other planets throughout the Universe, the paranormal, the New Age and the sanctity of the environment.
He taught the nation's first college course on rock music at the New School for Social Research in New York City in 1971. Luckman's freewheeling "Underground Tonight Show" live on cable television in New York City paved the way for popular television programs like "Saturday Night Live." He also produced several major UFO conventions in New York featuring rock and folk musicians and is the visionary behind the Signal to Space Concerts, a historic event that will beam live rock and pop music to Mars, the Moon and other locations in this Solar System and beyond in the hope of making contact with extraterrestrials.
In his role with the New York Center for Extraterrestrial Research, Luckman announced the discovery of two human-like faces on Mars photographed by NASA's Global Surveyor, was the first investigator to expose television's infamous "Alien Autopsy" footage as a hoax, and broke the story of a special initiative by billionaire philanthropist Laurance Rockefeller to open the government's secret X-files.
