Rogue physicist Dr. Jack Sarfatti crashes the UFO topic into DARPA’s 100 Year Starship Symposium. Are there any clues left smoldering in the debris field?

(STARpod.org) — Those magnificent men and their flying machines would like to go the distance and head out into the depths of interstellar space.
NASA, the American space agency, and DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (with a reputation for taking wayward mad scientists under their wing), have joined together to spend a million or so tax payer dollars to learn what might be involved in getting to the stars.
“A century can fundamentally change our understanding of our universe and reality,” proclaims the DARPA website, “Man’s desire to explore space and achieve the seemingly impossible is at the center of the 100 Year Starship Study Symposium. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and NASA Ames Research Center (serving as execution agent), are working together to convene thought leaders dealing with the practical and fantastic issues man needs to address to achieve interstellar flight one hundred years from now.”
The symposium was held in Orlando, Florida, from September 30 through October 2, 2011.
The discussion, which ranged from the impractical (giant, expensive nuclear powered rockets) to the improbable (antimatter powered engines), to the possibly impossible (worm holes, warp drives, and other ideas from science fiction), hit a roadblock when the topic of extraterrestrial visitors was raised by 72 year old rogue San Francisco physicist Dr. Jack Sarfatti. Sarfatti is no stranger when it comes to over-the-top speculative physics based on reverse engineering alleged machines from somewhere “out there” — but his virtual saucer crashed and burned when he posed the question to the panel.
“[Physicist] John Cramer calls on me to ask the Pundits — Ken Olum, Marc Millis, Eric Davis, Harold White & some Sci Fi writer I never heard of — a question. I ask: What about the 800 pound gorilla in the room, flying saucers?”
At this point the UFO topic crashed and burned.

According to Sarfatti, in response to his flying saucer question:
“Marc Millis [who once ran NASA’s Breakthrough Propulsion Physics Program] tries to side step the question diplomatically. I press on and ask Eric Davis to give his position (knowing full well what it is of course) and he says ‘no comment’. My point being, of course, is that the saucer ‘high strangeness’ — Eric’s term in a published paper — is evidence for actual warp drive and stargates here on Earth. Indeed Eric wrote a report about aliens leaving a stargate on Bob Bigelow’s Skinwalker Ranch in Utah. Even today Eric works for Hal Puthoff who has a deep interest in the saucer issue. What’s wrong with this picture?”
Eric Davis achieved a small amount of infamy several years ago when he wrote an extensive review on teleportation physics for Franklin Meade of the USAF, and included off-the-wall-topics like psychic teleportation.
And a few years ago, Davis confirmed to STARstream Research an incident alleged to have taken place at the haunted Skinwalker Ranch in Utah, purchased by aerospace entrepreneur Bob Bigelow. Bigelow assembled a team of experts as the National Institute of Discovery Science to look into weird tales of bizarre phenomena at the ranch. According to the account provided by Davis, with later confirmation from Dr. Kit Green, a former senior CIA analyst who continues to consult for the US government’s Defense Intelligence Agency, one of the NIDS scientists was paralyzed by a powerful ‘telepathic’ message. The source of the penetrating mind-to-mind intrusion allegedly warned NIDS to leave the ranch. Other bizarre incidents were also reported and later recounted in the book Hunt for the Skinwalker.
Sarfatti was able to refute one widely spread rumor that members of the NIDS team had encountered an otherworldly army and had fought for their lives.
“Yes, the French woman’s story to me [see our article “Bigelow Aerospace Lethal UFO Extraterrestrial Battle Rumor Exposed” for the details], Nick Cook and the Stapleton guy,” Sarfatti explained, was “a delusional distortion of [Jacques] Vallee’s meeting with her in Paris at Simon Daniel’s conference.”
After a story appeared in Slate, hinting that a ‘UFO nut’ had disrupted the conference, Sarfatti posted an explanation in the comments to the article.
“I was the UFO ranter,” wrote Sarfatti.
“The whole point of my talk and my later ‘rant’ was that all this talk of conventional craft moving through space is not how we will get to the stars and beyond,” added Sarfatti, “My point about the UFOs is that they are data that we have been contacted by advanced intelligences, possibly us back from the future, and that tells us that warp and wormhole are practical in spite of all the naysayers. All of the propulsion discussed at DARPA-NASA is good for space exploration inside our solar system but not outside it.”
Sarfatti has a Ph.D. in physics from the University of California, and his previous misadventures in the world of physics are featured in MIT Professor David Kaiser’s new book, “How the Hippies Saved Physics.”
So is the Earth being visited by extraterrestrial visitors from the stars? That is the basis of a long-held belief by many past and present officials in the US government, according to our sources. The legend of alien contact is known as the CORE STORY.
But is there a role for the CORE STORY in DARPA’s 100 Year Starship study?
“DARPA contends that the useful, unanticipated consequences of such research –- benefits from improved propulsion to energy storage and life support –- can ultimately benefit the Department of Defense and to NASA, as well as the private and commercial sector.”
Unless, apparently, that research includes reverse engineering based upon visiting extraterrestrial aliens in their magnificent flying machines.
