Royal Society on UFOs, ET Life, Disclosure, Info now Free To the Public

Royal Society journal archive contains scientific articles about extraterrestrials

On October 26, 2011, the Royal Society announced that its journal archive has been made available to the public, free-of-charge. The material that was once restricted professional researchers, scientist members and to pay-per-view access is now freely accessible online. More than 60,000 historical scientific papers make up the free archive, and come from various Royal Society publications. The Royal Society publishes peer-reviewed papers on varying scientific topics, including extraterrestrials and UFOs.

At about the same time as the Vatican's fascinating announcement telling the world that they believe in extraterrestrial life and the United Nations announcing that Mazlan Oathman would be the Director of Outer Space Affairs the Royal Society was producing an abundance of papers examining the impact that extraterrestrial life would have on the world. A few of the papers they produced were; 

1.The detection of extra-terrestrial life and the consequences for science and society
2.Predicting what extra-terrestrials will be like: and preparing for the worst
3.The implications of the discovery of extra-terrestrial life for religion
4. Fear, pandemonium, equanimity and delight: human responses to extra-terrestrial life 
5. In the journal, scientists mention that the United Nations should be charged with coming up with a plan to deal with extraterrestrials when contact is made. Scientists a also examine how contact with  extraterrestrial life might affect politics and religion.

According to the Royal Society’s announcement, Professor Uta Frith FRS, Chair of the Royal Society library committee, stated, “The release of these papers opens a fascinating window on the history of scientific progress over the last few centuries and will be of interest to anybody who wants to understand how science has evolved since the days of the Royal Society’s foundation.” The society’s first publication appeared in 1665. Yes, you can read articles from 1665 in the archive.

The Royal Society’s website explains that the society is a “fellowship of the world’s most eminent scientists and is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence.” The society was founded in 1660 and serves as the UK’s national academy of science. The Royal Society proudly identifies itself as the world’s oldest scientific publisher, and currently publishes nine peer-reviewed journals.The society proudly touts that “Fellows and Foreign Members, who are elected for life on the basis of scientific excellence, have included Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Ernest Rutherford, Albert Einstein, Dorothy Hodgkin, Francis Crick, James Watson and Stephen Hawking.”

UFOs and extraterrestrials have been the topic of several papers published in the various Royal Society journals. One example is a study conducted by Dr. Stephen Hughes, an astrophysicist at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, in which he suggests ball lightning and meteor showers could explain some UFO sightings.

And while these and other articles, like SETI (search for extraterrestrial intelligence) pioneer Frank Drake’s article titled “The search for extra-terrestrial intelligence,” might interest you, be aware that not all of the Royal Society’s content is currently available for free. Only content that was published more than 70 years ago is freely available. Newer content still requires a fee to view. So while you’re certainly welcome to browse writings by Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, and Ben Franklin, you still have to pay for many (but not all) of the articles about extraterrestrials and UFOs.
