Jaime Maussan is the worst. I'm enjoying the schadenfreude of the whole debacle.

Yeah, I know what you mean.

I just wish Whitley and Linda would do the right thing and use this to reform their wing of Ufoology.

I am Dr. Jacques Vallée a computer scientist and former astronomer. I have dedicated my personal research to the scientific research of UFOs. I was the model for the French scientist in Steven Spielberg's "Close Encounters". AMA!

Hi Reddit!

I'm excited to be here with you all today and to answer any questions you may have. Here is my proof: http://imgur.com/WxbXLoJ

Recently my investigations have focused on UFO sightings from ancient antiquity up to the Industrial Revolution - prior to the innovation of manmade vehicles for flight that can cause confusion when witnessing a UFO. I have worked with my colleague Chris Aubeck on my recent work and we will soon be publishing what we consider the new benchmark in UFO research - called Wonders in the Sky. Our larger goal is to set the groundwork for future researchers (Maybe that's YOU) by identifying and conserving primary source documents. We want future researchers to continue UFO investigations as part of mainstream science.

I worked at the Institute for the Future, helping to develop the precursor to the internet, known as the Arpanet. You also may know me as the basis for the French scientist character in Steven Spielberg's film Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Possibly you have seen one of my lectures (just click here and here for two videos); a panel about outer space at a global financial conference in Saudi Arabia and a TED talk in Geneva on Futures Research, respectively.

Looking forward to fielding your questions! AMA!

EDIT: Thanks Everybody for joining. My time is up. I have very much enjoyed answering your questions. Lots of really good ones.

EDIT: Noticed the video links didn't stick as hyperlinks. Copying links below:

are we all of a consensus that Vallee is pretty much & always has been the best, & by far?

I wasn't too impressed with his later run of books (the trilogy). I used to rank Keel alongside Vallee.

I'd now say (having lost all faith in the prevailing UFO/abduction narrative) Messengers of Deception is the most indispensable UFO-related book, after Jung's Flying Saucers.

OTOH, Vallee does appear to be an insider so that always makes me wonder.

Likely not funny to experiencers / abductees / survivors ...

I'm not sure my candidacy as a survivor has anything to do with my lack of a humor response. :lol:

Jung was also a deep insider, FWIW (linked to Dulles, etc.)
