Flying Saucers, Arthur C. Clarke
(in) Journal of the British Interplanetary Society (Vol. 12, No. 3 - May, 1953)
London: British Interplanetary Society, 1953. Featuring Clarke's skeptical view of the U.F.O. phenomenon. Clarke maintained that, after a visit to the United States in 1952, he
became convinced that what he called “Unidentified Airborne Objects”
(UAOs) did exist, but he doubted that they were spaceships. He thought
it possible, though unlikely, that they were some other phenomena of
“intelligent, extra-terrestrial origin.” Ex-institutional copy with rubber tamps to front cover, else clean and about near fine.
