Atlanta, GA, January 23, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Noted physicist, lecturer, and original Roswell Crash investigator Stanton Friedman has been asked to be a panelist at the Fifth Annual Global Competitiveness Forum in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The conference, running from January 22 to 25, 2011, is focusing on utilizing innovation to answer challenges to global competitiveness.
Other panelists and speakers include such notable experts as Saudi Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Ali Bin Ibrahim Al Naimi, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, Walt Disney International chairman Andy Bird, Ernst & Young CEO James Turley, and Alcoa CEO Klaus Kleinfeld.
Friedman will be joined by City College of New York theoretical physicist, author, and host of Discovery Channels Sci-Fi Science Dr. Michio Kaku, PhD. and UK Ministry of Defense official and author Nick Pope studying the topic of Contact: Learning from Outer Space.
Speaking with reporters from the Canadian newspaper Daily Gleaner, Friedman said, "I intend to stress that aliens have taken innovative approaches to interstellar travel, travel in the atmosphere (and in) examination of earthlings.
"So far, as I know, I am the only one of the five who has strongly stated a conviction that some UFOs are of alien origin. The others indicate that something of interest is happening, but they are unwilling to admit to the conclusion that aliens are visiting, as opposed to merely being out there.
"In other words, some UFOs are alien vehicles," Friedman said. "I am also convinced, after working for many major corporations as a nuclear physicist, that technological progress comes from doing things differently in an unpredictable way. The future is not an extrapolation of the past. Microcircuits are not just small vacuum tubes; lasers are not just better light bulbs, nuclear reactors are not just better chemical combustion chambers. All involve new physics."
Friedman is a Senior Fellow of Frontier Science and Advisory Council member of the Institute of Frontier Science, an elite fellowship of highly experienced and knowledgeable specialists in the scientific field of Ufology. The Institute of Frontier Science endeavors to heighten the scientific community's and the general public's awareness not only in the credibility of Ufology as a legitimate science, but to focus awareness on the quality of investigators, historians, and researchers who have dedicated a substantial portion of their lives and their energies to following the trail of secrets using their individual talents and knowledge. The Institute’s website is www.FrontierScience.us.
