PAST EVENT --- AUGUST 8-11, 2014 --- "CONTACT IN THE DESERT" @ Joshua Tree Retreat, Joshua Tree, California, with nearly 40 speakers at this huge and popular conference.

PAST EVENT ---SEPTEMBER 6-7, 2014 --- 2014 ANNUAL "EXPERIENCERS SPEAK CONFERENCE" for and with UFO Abductees, Experiencers and Contactees@ Portland, Maine, sponsored and hosted by AUDREY HEWINS of the "Starborne Group."



S.P.A.C.E. has held several public seminars as part of its educational program with presenters such as PETER ROBBINS (twice), EUGENIA MACER-STORY, JOYCE MURPHY, and the COLLISION THEATER performance company which staged its "ABDUCTION PROJECT" play at several performances at the H.E.R.E. Theater in Soho, NYC in February and March 2001. The most recent educational presentation was a S.P.A.C.E. SPECIAL FOCUS SEMINAR, with a focus theme limited to people with a real interest and involvement with a specific aspect of close encounters, in this case a famous and controversial UFO contactee of the 1960's and 1960's who wrote "Flying Saucers Have Landed" (1953). "Inside the Space Ships" (1955) and "Flying Saucers Farewell" (1961), as well as the science fiction novel "Pioneers In Space" (1949). 

On May 18, 2014 the topic was "GEORGE ADAMSKI REVISITED" with a presentation by GLENN STECKLING, president of the George Adamski Foundation [{ founded by his parents shortly after UFO contactee Adamski's death on April 23, 1965. The seminar was videoed for GAF by ALAN STEINFELD of NEW REALITIES, [] along with an interview of Steckling for Steinfeld's New Realities TV program.

In the photo below are, left to right, GLENN STECKLING, UFO educator ED MARTIN and S.P.A.C.E. founder HAROLD EGELN, sitting at a table after their dinner prior to the seminar. They dined and talked at The Little Poland Restaurant in Manhattan;s East Village, chosen by S.P.A.C.E. because Adamski was born in Poland on April 17, 1891. His family moved to New York two years later.

As a boy, Egeln corresponded with Adamski, received a one-page typed letter from Adamski, a post card typed by him, and a letter from ALICE WELLES, Adamski's assistant. Adamski's post card to Egeln is shown below from May 1958.

The ADAMSKI PHOTO ALBUM below features his books and other related items, such as the 1954 British movie "STRANGER FROM VENUS" (released in the U.S. on TV as "IMMEDIATE DISASTER") with the movie's story by DESMOND LESLIE, who co-authored the 1943book 'FLYING SAUCERS HAVE LANDED" with Adamski. The movie more resembles "THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL" even with PATRICIA NEAL in it playing a woman befriended by the human-looking Venusian. Venus has a temperature of 800 degrees and its atmospheric pressure is 90 time that of Earth's, and its atmosphere is loaded with carbon dioxide, the result of a natural runaway greenhouse effect billions of years ago.

Shown here are the two direct replies I received in response to my letters to GEORGE ADAMSKI when I was a boy in 1957 and 1958 when I corresponded to him from my Irvington, NJ home. A third response was from his assistant ALICE WELLS, stating that his schedule then was very busy. Above and below are some videos from various sources regarding Adamski. -- Harold Egeln

Shown in the photo-scan above is a video clip from the award-winning documentary movie "THE HIDDEN HAND: ALIEN ABDUCTION AND THE GOVERNMENT COVER-UP" by JAMES CARMAN of Time Travelers Productions. The clip is of seven UFO abductees and experiencers brought together by HAROLD EGELN of the S.P.A.C.E. Group for the documentary. Five of the seven are authors, two are artists, five are columnists for UFO magazines, one is a movie-maker and two are music composers.


                                                               FLYING SAUCERS & FATE

The photo-scan below is of the front cover of a complete 2006 reproduction of the first issue of "FATE" magazine from the Spring of 1948 focusing on the fateful year of the 1947 flying saucer sightings flap. The issue included an article by KENNETH ARNOLD titled "I DID SEE THE FLYING DISCS!," a feature piece of a compilation of flying saucer reports titled "THE MYSTERY OF THE FLYING DISCS" and "What Were the 'Doughnuts'?" article by John Ross on saucer-shaped military aircraft.

In "Radio's Strangest Mystery" Vincent Gaddis gave an account about the odd signal received on radios in the first SETI-like attempts by scientists to detect intelligence radio signals from Mars, an event only 24 years before this first FATE issue. "On the night of October 22, 1924," he wrote, Mars was only over 34 million miles from Earth."Huge telescopes were trained on the brilliant red orb. Radio broadcasting stations were silenced, and scientists listened for a possible message from across space."
