Meier has claimed to be in communication with extraterrestrials for decades, and has one of the most famous UFO photo collections of pictures he has taken himself. We recently questioned some of the circumstances surrounding the evidence in this case and Horn wants to rebut our Billy Meier show. We will debate our findings versus his and you can be the judge as to whether or not you feel this famous and controversial case is legitimate. For more on Horn visit his site: TheyFly.com

Dr. Claude Swanson is a theoretical physicist who earned his degrees at MIT and Princeton. For many years he worked at high tech labs for large corporations and on US Defense projects. However, Dr. Swanson now focuses his efforts on the science of unconventional physics, such as those that relate to the UFO phenomena. He believes that there is a subtle energy some cultures have known about for many years, such as “chi” in China or “torsion” in Russia, which may be the key to understanding UFO [propulsion, telepathy, healing and out of body experiences. He believes that when this energy is present, the laws of physics that the western world is familiar with are modified. He has written two books on the subject, and lectures throughout the country, including presenting at the Society for Scientific Exploration, of which he is a full member.

Norio Hayakawa is the leading Dulce researcher, and is the one who got me in contact with New Mexico state police officer Gabe Valdez. Norio and I will discuss Valdez's life work and his recent passing, along with Norio's work on investigating the legend of the underground base near Dulce, New Mexico.
Gabe Valdez was a New Mexico state patrol officer assigned to areas plagued with cattle mutilations and UFO sightings. He investigated these mutilations and has come to some unique conclusions that he believes he has seen sufficient proof to support. Valdez also worked with Paul Bennewitz and retired Air Force Intelligence officer, Richard Doty, the two people who started the rumors that there was a joint Human-Alien secret base under the Archuleta Mesa just outside of Dulce, NM. We will get his take on this theory as well.
