Présentation de l'éditeur

Paul Hill was a well-respected NASA scientist when, in the early 1950s, he had a UFO sighting. Soon after, he built the first flying platform and was able to duplicate the UFO's tilt-to-control maneuvers. Official policy, however, prevented him from proclaiming his findings. "I was destined," says Hill, "to remain as unidentified as the flying objects."

For the next twenty-five years, Hill acted as an unofficial clearinghouse at NASA, collecting and analyzing sightings' reports for physical properties, propulsion possibilities, dynamics, etc. To refute claims that UFOs defy the laws of physics, he had to make "technological sense... of the unconventional object."

After his retirement from NASA, Hill finally completed his remarkable analysis. This book, published posthumously, presents his findings that UFOs "obey, not defy, the laws of physics." Vindicating his own sighting and thousands of others, he proves that UFO technology is not only explainable, but attainable.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The ONLY book on UVOs you REALLY need to read: Unconventional Vectorially-Guided Objects 27 juillet 2014
Par frankebe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Despite some pages of esoteric information beyond my I.Q., this is the most interesting and exciting book I have ever read.

This is the real deal.

If you want solid interpretations by a real scientist about real extraterrestrial spacecraft, Paul Hill is your man. No better book has been written, and it astounds me that the scientific community and general media have swept it aside. (Or have they?)

It is written by a bona fide employee of NASA, who was a real professor of aeronautics and one of the 20th Century's most renown engineers who personally consulted (and was consulted by) leading scientists. AND, as if this were not enough, the author even had his own Medium-Close Encounters, one of which was quite spectacular.

Based on his training, Hill naturally (and reassuringly) emphasizes the "nuts-and-bolts" side of the UFO experience, with no New Age axe to grind.* He writes in an engaging, readable and idiomatic style with humour. But he also includes notes of his calculations every few pages, and he adds appendices with much thornier math--just in case you're interested!

So, if you want the opinions about UFOs from a broadly respected and highly awarded scientist of genius level, but don't want to be overwhelmed by abstruse detail, the work is easily assimilated (just skim a little here and there). BUT if you want more in-depth analysis, it's available.

In my hubris-filled opinion, if you are even moderately interested in this topic and hate the tabloid-style of writing as I do, you will find yourself immediately engaged, then deeply involved and excited by page 52. It is on this page that he states "At the Langley Research Center, I became a sort of clearing house for local UFO sightings. We had good reports because they were made by scientist- and engineer-types who had volunteered for aircraft spotting duty." Yow!


"...I don't discuss `other planes of existence' and like concepts, which have an ample background in the thinking of the Middle Ages, but none whatsoever in science." (p.419)

On the misleading term `UFO': "It is assumed that anyone with a good dictionary can see why unidentified is a misnomer. As to flying... Unconventional objects, or craft, don't fly. They are vectored along trajectories."(p.26-27)

"Being knowledgeable of U.S. Government secrets on propulsion, I have known from the start that UFOs could not possibly be of Earth-technology manufacture." (p.311)

"Because of my career as a research scientist...I have had advanced knowledge of UFO technology but was effectively muzzled by the NACA [NASA] policy laid down by its Director, Dr. Hugh L. Dryden, that UFOs are nonexistent." (p.319) [I wonder what exactly he means by "I have had advanced knowledge of UFO technology"...?]

"Nothing goes faster than light, but spaceships can go more quickly as reckoned by their own time." (p.328)

"Incidentally, subatomic particles often travel through water faster than light travels through water, so "nothing travels faster than light" without further qualification is a loose statement." (p.396)

"Space travel is not naïve--it is inevitable!" (p.335)

"The forces in the everyday world around us are electric..." (p.296)

"The dazzling maneuver performance of UFO scout ships seems to result from their being over-designed for the investigation of planet Earth... Exploring Earth is UFO play. I am reasonably sure of the correctness of my maneuver analyses based not only on a lifetime of experience with missile dynamics, but more importantly on the actual simulation of UFO-type maneuvers while personally engaged in flying platform research piloting." (p.319)

(Holy Cow, if that don't pique your interest in this man, go back to reading the "Weird News" section of the Huffington Post and call it a day. Included in the book are photos of the author riding his flying platforms, by the way. He also invented "rocket shoes"...)

On page 330, Hill gives his objection to the argument that mass increases without bounds for an object accelerated toward light speed.

~ ~ ~

Given current events, it seems prescient that he once told his daughter that we have more to fear from the IRS than from anyone from outer space.

And as a final thought, here is one last interesting quote from the book, which leads me to a related reference:
"The high sighting rate of UFOs gives the impression that stellar civilizations are closer together than estimated by exobiologists. ...many aliens seem very sensitive to light. If these have colonized and adapted to planets of the highly numerous red stars, this would change the whole civilization distribution picture, but would be consistent with UFO data."

For those of you with any interest in such things, and considering also the earlier quote about everything is electric, compare the above thought to the Plasma Universe theory of exobiology: do an Internet search for "Other stars, other worlds, other life?" and read about the possibility of life around red and "brown" stars; specifically: "life is not only possible inside the glow of a small brown dwarf, it seems far more likely than on a planet orbiting outside a star..."

And lest you think this an outrageous idea, even NASA makes interesting and corroborating observations such as "We also see evidence of water in the form of superheated steam" around such stars; and in one of their many contradictory statements: "One of the Y dwarfs is less than 80 degrees Fahrenheit ... making it the coldest star-like body known." (Search for "WISE finds few brown dwarfs close to home")

So, the conditions for supporting intelligent life may be much more prevalent, and close-by, than many statistics-wielding astronomers have thought.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent source of information 4 septembre 2014
Par William Brady - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I have read more than a few books about UFOs and this is the first book to apply the observed characteristics against modern physics. There is no attempt to stretch observed data into unknown territory. In a careful and thorough manner the author explains every observed bit of information using simple language and ordinary physics. Why this book took so long to become available says more about the governments lack of trust in us than in our ability to understand these UFOs. I think it is possible that if we recovered a crashed UFO that we could copy and fly our copy. Enjoy this book if you want to know what UFOs are really doing and why.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One Of The Best Books On UFOs 16 septembre 2014
Par Dave In Ohio - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
If you're an intelligent person that accepts that UFOs are real and that they're probably extraterrestrial in origin, then this book really is a "must read" (Yeah, I hate that overused term too but it really fits here).

Paul Hill uses his extensive aeronautical engineering background to advance completely believable hypotheses on how "flying saucers" might actually work while always being clear that what he offers is speculation.

Being a pretty much a non-mathematical person, much of Dr. Hill's extensive quantitative analysis is wasted on me but I found that I missed nothing essential by skimming over it. There is enough math to delight engineers without chasing away the rest of us.

It is unfortunate that Dr. Hill is no longer with us. It is equally sad that, like him, there are probably a number of current scientists and engineers that accept UFO reality, have useful theories about them but don't dare speak up for fear of committing career suicide.

Buy this book. Read it and keep it for reference.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Scientists and engineers must read this book. 9 octobre 2014
Par Eduardo Novaes Hering - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The first book I read with concrete calculations and results taken from observations. The author, a competent engineer, extracts useful and important data from the reported phenomena, showing clearly that whatever those objects are, they do not break physical laws. No more than missiles do. The author concludes clearly that what we miss is the knowledge and the technology to produce the required propulsion field. He even explores the possibility of interstellar travel using our general relativity knowledge and shows clearly that, for the passengers of a spaceship with an acceleration of 100G (feasible today by a missile), the time they would take for a 100 light year travel would be only a few months. If you are interested in the UFO phenomena and want concrete data about it, this book is for you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 he spares no effort to explain what this equation mean in a manner that is fairly easy to understand 10 juillet 2014
Par Conrad Bauer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This issue is actually a new edition of Dr. Hill's book. He makes a well researched case to explain how a UFO might function. He shows much of his work in equations which are a little beyond my ability to understand them. On the other hand, he spares no effort to explain what this equation mean in a manner that is fairly easy to understand. Dr. Hill's work is exactly what the study of UFOs need. I would recommend this book to anyone, especially those who wants a nuts and bolts description of what might be involved with the propulsion of these objects. We need more work such as Paul R. Hill's work.
