The Real X-Files: the Inside Story of the MoD's UFO Project

September 28, 2007

The Ministry of Defence receives more Freedom of Information Act requests relating to UFOs than on any other subject, including the war in Iraq. The MoD is shortly to begin releasing some of its most sensitive UFO files, relating to Defence Intelligence Staff investigations into the phenomenon. After that, many expect the MoD to declassify and release their entire archive of UFO files. What's in the files? Why was the MoD investigating the subject at all? What did they conclude? What are the most fascinating cases in the government files? Why do so many people believe the government is covering up the truth about UFOs?

To find the answers to these questions, come along to the Catalyst Science Discovery Centre on Mersey Road in Widnes, WA8 0FD, on Saturday 13 October at 11am. Nick Pope, who ran the MoD's UFO project for much of the early Nineties, will be giving a talk and answering questions on the subject. Entry is free.

After Nick's talk you can tour the Catalyst Discovery Centre at the reduced rate of £2.50 for adults and £2 for children
