Subject: A Remark By Eshleman On PBS Radio

A remark that Prof. Eshleman (of the Sturrock panel) made on PBS
Radio's "Science Friday" interview was interesting. This is in
regard to the SETI program having received a considerable number
of signals from space that could not be identified as coming from
any Earth source, and which did not last long enough to be
considered really repeatable. His point on this was that these
unidentified radio-wave signals (URS?) resemble UFO reports in
this regard -- both unidentified. (His hope was that ufology
might grow in respectability to the same level that SETI has
reached, which is not asking for too much!)

A point he did not make, however, is that UFOs are unidentified
in many or most cases because they do not hang around long enough
for the news media to photograph them from all directions, or for
the military to shoot them down and display them as evidence,
etc.  This makes Eshleman's analogy even closer, I think.

So it would not be surprising if these URS were purposely
implanted by certain UFO intelligences, as part of the overall
UFO phenomenon.  That way they can make some astronomers start to
ponder it a bit, just as the crop-circle phenomenon can (or
should) make a few plant pathologists ponder that end of it.
