Orthoteny last entered the discussion when David Saunders of the Condon Committee took it up briefly. The matter is discussed in passing on p. 323 of the newly published UFOs and Government. Saunders got interested in it because of his desire to employ statistical analysis in UFO study. Orthoteny is one of those things, like the Mars correlation, that remain in ufology's early history and in its rear-view mirror. Basically, summed up as: it seemed like a good idea at the time.
