In 1967, at Malmstrom Air Force Base just outside of Grand Forks, Mont., business was humming along as usual. Robert Salas, the missile launch officer received calls from base guards about strange lights in the sky. A few minutes later, Salas received another call about a glowing large object hovering over the front gate. The command was given to secure the facility just before 10 missiles mysteriously shut down, said Salas recounting the incident to CNN’s Larry King Live July 18, 2008.
Bob Jameson, Malmstrom’s missile targeting officer, said in the same CNN interview, he was called to the base but could not explain how the shut down happened. Reluctantly, officials had to admit the possibility of a link between the unusual sightings in their air space and the perplexing missile event. This was not something the military wanted to admit to the American people.
Nuclear weapons cause concern in the world. Robert Hastings, guest speaker at Metro’s “UFO’s: the Secret History” April 8, puts a whole new perspective on the subject, said Jason Cordova of Metro’s Crypto Science Society. Hastings will talk about ongoing documented UFO activity around nuclear sites.
Hastings ventured into the lecture circuit after getting hundreds of interviews from former and retired U.S. Air Force personnel with first-hand experience about UFOs. He has spoken at more than 500 universities and colleges. His first degree is from Ohio University in photography, but in the mid 1980s he retrained in electron microscopy and also received a certificate in Materials Science applications. He was employed by Philips Semiconductors as a laboratory analyst while continuing to educate others about UFOs in his spare time. According to ufohastings.com, his book, “UFOs and Nukes,” answers many questions and poses more.
“I can simply say after 35 years of research that these incidents have taken place,” Hastings said. “There are hundreds of declassified documents which indicate that UFOs have demonstrated a distinct ongoing interest in our nuclear weapon sites. I have also interviewed nearly a hundred gentlemen who were involved in these incidents at various Air Force bases.”
Cordova said Metro students are invited to stretch their minds and listen to Hastings speak about years of interviews with military personnel, veracious citizens and official documents. This subject is surrounded by suspicion and disbelief, but The Crypto Science Society brings people who have credibility in unknown or out-of-current paradigm thinking, via Cordova’s professional network of contacts.
“The evidence they uncover is so compelling they can’t leave it alone,“ Cordova said about those people who do the research on this and other subjects.
The Crypto Sciences Society’s website gives a list of past and future speakers along with an explanation of its purpose for offering observations and education about things not covered by traditional science.
“I am deeply involved in a community of professionals with high moral character that have proven themselves,” Cordova said.
Hastings will speak at 1 p.m. April 8 in Tivoli Turnhalle.
