CSI Workshop: "UFOs - The Space-Age Mythology" 10/09

Announcing a special CSI workshop in Tucson, AZ

UFOs: The Space-Age Mythology
October 9-11, 2009
Radisson Suites
6555 East Speedway Blvd.
Tucson, Arizona 85710

For over 60 years the interpretation of "Things" in the sky has led to mythology about "Aliens" and their "Spacecraft."  These myths are fused with images from science fiction and enhanced by spiritual mysticism.  Anomalous events in the sky are enlarged by anecdotal stories and conspiracy theories of "Space Gods" coming to earth for either salvation or destruction.  Can "Lights in the Sky" really save us from the modern world?  This workshop will consider these and other questions about the role of science and skepticism in evaluating extraordinary claims.


  • James McGaha, retired USAF pilot, skeptic, astronomer, and
    director of the Grasslands Observatory

  • David Morrison, director of the NASA Lunar Science Institute and senior
    scientist for astrobiology at the NASA Ames Research Center

  • Robert Sheaffer, author, skeptical investigator, and founding director of Bay Area Skeptics

  • Dave Thomas, physicist, mathematician, and president of
    New Mexicans for Science and Reason

Join us Sunday afternoon for a tour of the Pima Air & Space Museum!
