Mark O'Connell Interview - The Paracast

Gene Steinberg and guest co-host Curt Collins chat with Mark O'Connell about his new book about Dr. J. Allen Hynek, The Close Encounters Man: How One Man Made the World Believe in UFOs. Mark discusses how the biography expanded from a focus on Hynek's UFO work for the Air Force and afterwards to include the scientist's astronomical and World War II contributions and his family life, thus providing a fuller appreciation of the man and his legacy. This outstanding podcast touches upon many of the major points in O'Connell's book and is certain to provide new knowledge and insights even to those who think they know well the Hynek story. UFO researcher par excellence Jan Aldrich adds some interesting historical information on the subject in A Few Words about Dr. J. Allen Hynek, appending several documents from Hynek's USAF UFO consultancy. (WM)
