Carl Sagan - Ufos and an astronomer

Carl Sagan as may know is the famous astronomer who contributed much to science with his unqiue views and appinions on the universe. Famous for his 1997 movie and novel 'contact' featuring Jodie Foster, Carl had many ideas about Ufos. Carl believed in ufo disclosure and was quoted as saying "some UFO reports and analyses, and perhaps voluminous files, have been made inaccessible to the public which pays the bills ... It's time for the files to be declassified and made generally available."

Also of interest In 1966, Sagan was a member of the Ad Hoc Committee to Review Project Blue Book, the U.S. Air Force's UFO investigation project. The committee concluded Blue Book had been lacking as a scientific study, and recommended a university-based project to give the UFO phenomenon closer scientific scrutiny. The result was the Condon Committee (1966–1968), led by physicist Edward Condon, and in their final report they formally concluded that UFOs, regardless of what any of them actually were, did not behave in a manner consistent with a threat to national security.

Sagan later changed his mind about ET visitations. He was the one that said "extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof" and he felt that there was no proof of any ET's.
