The Vancouver group that wants to send a satellite to low-Earth orbit for UFO Disclosure has raised $30,000, and is now poised to launch their instrument-packed CubeSat in summer of 2017.
Over the last six months, the internet’s space news has been on fire with speculation of extraterrestrial visitation, and a crowd-funded group who plans to study the UFO phenomena in a scientific manner. “With all the testimony from highly credible sources, including the ex-Canadian Minister of Defense and several Pilots and Military personel, it’s a wonder so little scientific scrutiny has gone into the matter.”, says Dave Cote, a Vancouver Canada software Engineer, “After being a sceptic myself, I saw something in the night skies that changed my views and led me to ask some really big questions like: are we being visited by Aliens?”
CubeSat for Disclosure has the ability to measure imagery, including infra-red, electromagnetic radiation, and high energy radiation. Several documented UFO cases report confirmed radioactive, visual and electromagnetic phenomena, though getting hold of the documentation on these cases is difficult. Reports that are claimed to exist by former military service members are shrouded in secrecy, buried in classified documents, or simply said not to exist. There seems to be a discrepancy between what ex-military and pilots say, and the evidence that exists (or lack of evidence). CubeSat for Disclosure will change that, making it’s findings real-time and open-source, collecting information from space and sending it directly to the people.
Cote says that in any other realm, with witnessed phenomena, science explores it, finds evidence to support or refute the claims. “Isn’t it interesting that with a matter that could be so huge, that of extraterrestrial visitation, the scientific community and world media tend to ridicule the topic and dismiss it.”, adds Cote, “Hundreds of reputable people say they’ve seen something that would revolutionize how we view energy, technology and propulsion, and yet these testimonies are simply dismissed or made out to be ‘crazy talk’.”
Not everyone dismisses UFO claims, however, and quite a few high-tech individuals have stepped up to help Cote, including launch company InterOrbital Systems, ex-Lockheed Martin Scientist Dr. Hank Voss, and AFIT cubesat expert, Matt Lippert.
The CubeSat group has raised enough to build the satellite and pay for the launch, and now needs a bit more to pay for data retrieval, a process that will cost around $10,000 USD. Check out the group’s project and help support their efforts here: http://cubesat.tech
