Michio Kaku: UFOs Are Real (Video) "It's the 5% unidentified that give you the willies"


Chicago O'Hare International Airport: UFO 2007

95% Of UFO Sightings Can Be Identified Dylan Ratigan of MSNBC interviewed Dr. Michio Kaku about Leslie Kean's 2010 book, "UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record". Ratigan starts out asking, "Do Unidentified Flying Objects, without question, exist?". Kaku responds, "95% of UFO sightings can be immediately identified as the planet Venus, weather balloons, weather anomalies, swamp gas, you name it, we've got it nailed. It's the 5% that give you the willies. 5% remain totally unexplained. Regarding the witnesses to the spooky 5% unidentified, Kaku notes, "We're talking about generals, Air Force pilots, governors of states that claim, 'Hey, this is beyond our understanding of the laws of physics.'"

We Are Clueless Kaku continues, "We've looked at all the alternatives. These are multiple sightings by multiple modes. That is, pilots, eyewitnesses (on the ground), radar, visual sightings. These are very hard to dismiss, this handful of sightings. One over Alaska, one over Belgium, one over Iran. The handful of things that still cannot be explained defy the known laws of physics. Ratigan asks, "Does this confirm life on other planets?". Kaku replies, "I wouldn't go that far. We need alien DNA or an alien chip. That would nail it to the wall right there. We don't have that, we don't have the smoking gun. But this book (Leslie Kean's) is as close as you are going to get to the smoking gun. We're talking about senior military officials that were involved in the investigations of these incidents saying, 'We are clueless'".

Extraterrestrial? Extra-dimensional? Are the mysterious 5% of unexplainable and baffling UFO sightings from another world? Kaku speculates, "Those people assume that they (UFOs) may be 100 years ahead of us. In which case it is impossible for them to reach us. But, if they are a thousand, a million, years ahead of us, then new laws of physics begin to open up. So, we have to open our minds to the possibility that they are not just a super version of us, that they could be thousands, millions of years more advanced." Ratigan asks why haven't these begins contacted us formally? Kaku compares them to us as humans are to ants. "If they are that advances, maybe they are simply not that interested in us."

Dylan Ratigan Show: "Michio Kaku: UFOs Are Real" Theoretical physicist Dr. Michio Kaku discusses Leslie Kean's new book, "UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record."
