We’re joined today by Dr. Bruce Maccabee, an optical physicist formerly with the U.S. Navy, and a leading ufologist. Bruce has been a ufologist since the late 1960s when he joined the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena.
Over his long career in ufology, he has authored scores of technical papers and hundreds of articles on the topic, and in the process become one of the most respected UFO investigators in the world.
Our discussion in today’s interview is focused on the history of UFO research that Bruce describes in his latest book, “UFO/FBI Connection: The Secret History of the Government’s Cover-Up”, available online at Amazon.com.
In short, Bruce has spent literally decades investigating UFO’s, starting back in the 1960’s when he joined NICAP, and continuing over the next 50+ years up to contemporary, present day research. He’s explored some of the most exciting UFO cases in history, such as the Kenneth Arnold sighting in 1947, generally regarded as the first widely reported UFO sighting in the United States.
The experience that Bruce accrued throughout his career, along with the scientific knowledge he applied from his background as a PhD physicist, led him to be a highly sought-after figure by government officials looking to understand more about UFO’s. In addition to discussing his own experiences investigating well-known sightings, we also explore his interactions with government, and how he came to be the first person to ever see the FBI’s “Real Life X-Files”.
