  • Description

    INTRODUCTION And now for something from outer space......the first international congress on unidentified flying object phenomena opened in Acapulco, Mexico, on Monday (18 April). According to one speaker from the United States, the congress was faced with prejudice similar to that which afflicted the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei, whose claim that the earth orbited the sun challenged incorrect existing beliefs.

    SYNOPSIS: The congress was held in the modern convention centre of the Port of Acapulco and attracted delegates from several different countries. Reports of unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, have been made virtually in every country in the world and the reports bear a certain similarity to each other.

    The list of speakers included Sir Eric Gairy, Prime Minister of the West Indian island Grenada, as well as delegated from Europe, the United States and South America. Another speaker listed was Erich Von Daniken, author of "Chariot of the Gods" which dealt with visits from outer space.

    Mr. Colman Von Keviczky, a Hungarian who now lives in the United States, claimed that the congress would occupy a place in human history that might prove more significant than the events surrounding Galileo in the 17th century. Mr. Von Keviczky is director of a body called the Inter - continental Galactic Spacecraft U.F.O. Research and Analytic Network. He also claimed that the earth was invaded in 1973.
