Philip Corso in Roswell, New Mexico and became a personal friend and confidante.  She was instrumental in having his book The Day After Roswell, for which she wrote the preface, translated into Italian.  She consequently brought Colonel Corso to Italy for the editorial group Futuro, publisher of Il Giorno Dopo Roswell, and Corso was present for many TV appearances and two conferences. She returned to Roswell in the summer of 2003 for the American debut of her book, Connecting the Dots; Making Sense of the UFO Phenomenon. Because of her international perspective on extraterrestrial related phenomena, Paola has consulted with many researchers about the best avenues for planetary disclosure with emphasis on the “big picture” and stressing the historical connection.  She is a close friend of Monsignor Padre Corrado Balducci and assisted in filming the Italian witnesses, including the Monsignor, for the Disclosure Project for the May 9, 2001 press conference.  She was instrumental in bringing to Italy Robert Dean, Dr. Steven Greer, Linda Moulton Howe, Dr. Richard Boylan, Russell Targ, Travis Walton, Derrell Sims, Helmut Lamner, Michael Lindemann, Nick Pope, Bill Hamilton, Ryan Wood, Carlos Diaz and Dr. John Mack.  Her new non-profit association, Starworks Italia, will continue to bring speakers to Italy and promote disclosure and exo-political dialogue world-wide.She has a regular column in Area 51 UFO Magazine, has written for Nexus, Australia, Notizario UFO and Dossier Alieni, among others publications.Paola lives in Rome and Boulder, Colorado and has a Masters degree in Education.  She teaches history and photojournalism and On-line classes in Exopolitics for Dr. Michael Salla’s Exopolitics Institute for which she is the International liaison director.

Tadd has had unique contacts with astronauts & scientists who shared their insights about unidentified aerial phenomena. He will focus on the  "unexplained and explained space files," and discuss the real areas of resistance to government acknowledgement of "alien" life. Tadd is now the Maryland and DC State Director for MUFON and the founder for the Center of Advancement of Earth and Space Sciences.


Richard Dolan is probably the world’s pre-eminent historian of UFOs today.

He is the author of two definitive volumes of history, UFOs and the National Security State, widely considered the finest historical works ever written on the subject.

Richard also co-authored a ground-breaking analysis of the future, A.D. After Disclosure: The People’s Guide to Life After Contact. Written with Bryce Zabel (creator of the television series Dark Skies), After Disclosure. is a fearless and analytical “what if” scenario describing the deep impact that would be brought about by the end of UFO secrecy. Its publication in 2010 solidified Richard’s status as the most original thinker in ufology today. Richard is currently writing another ground-breaking work: UFOs for the 21st Century Mind. Due out in early 2012, it offers a fresh analysis of this ancient phenomenon, one that speaks to a world in the midst of social and technological transformation, and promises to redefine ufology in many important ways. In his books and articles, Richard’s main themes center around the destruction of our political liberties as a result of the UFO cover-up, the possible nature of the non-humans themselves, what their presence means for our civilization, why the cover-up will end within our lifetime, and what is likely to happen after that. Richard’s investigations involve exploring national archives national archives, conducting indepth confidential interviews with leading figures in the national security community, like four-star generals, retired admirals, high-level CIA officers, world-famous scientists, & men who briefed U.S. Presidents, on the UFO cover-up. Richard is a regular speaker at conferences around the world, and has done over 40 appearances on the nationwide radio show Coast-to-Coast AM. He also delivered six presentations on UFOs at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., between 2004 and 2010, receiving mention in The Washington Post. Richard television work includes,the History Channel’s UFO Files and the Science Channel’s Dark Matters Twisted but True! Appearance on William Shatner’s Weird or What?, scheduled to be aired in 2012. Syfy with NBC’s special two-hour documentary, Inside Secret Government Warehouses: Shocking Revelations. In 2006, Richard hosted a six-episode series on the Sci Fi Channel called SciFi Investigates. Numerouse UFO documentaries: Fastwalkers (2006), Dan Akroyd Unplugged on UFOs (2005), Out of the Blue: The Definitive Investigation of the UFO Phenomenon (2004).

Richard was born in Brooklyn, New York. He studied at Alfred University in Western New York State, earning bachelor degrees in History and English Literature. During this time, he received a scholarship to study at Exeter College in Oxford University, where he earned a Certificate in Modern Political Theory. Richard was also a finalist for a Rhodes scholarship, and completed his graduate work in History at the University of Rochester. Prior to his interest in UFOs, he studied U.S. Cold War strategy, Soviet history and culture, and international diplomacy.

Dr. David M. Jacobs is former Associate Professor of History at Temple University specializing in twentieth century American history and culture.  He is former Director of the American Studies Program. Dr. Jacobs has been a UFO researcher since 1965.  In 1973, he completed his doctoral dissertation in the field of intellectual history at the University of Wisconsin--Madison on the controversy over unidentified flying objects in America.  This was only the second Ph.D. degree granted involving a UFO-related theme.  Prof. Jacobs has written and delivered many articles, papers, and addresses on the subject of UFOs and abductions.  He has been a consultant to the major UFO organizations.  For twenty-seven years he has offered the only regular curriculum university course on UFOs and abductions: “UFOs in American Society.”  He delivered the first paper to a scientific organization about the abduction phenomenon (Cornell University, 1989). He participated in the first session on UFOs at the History of Science Society (Washington D.C., 1992).  And, he developed the first scientific typology of the abduction experience.  Since the early 1980s, he has specialized in the UFO abduction phenomenon. He has conducted more than 850 hypnotic regressions with over 130 abductees.  He has lectured widely on the subject both internationally and at colleges and universities in the United States.  In 1991, Dr. Jacobs and colleague Budd Hopkins conducted the highly publicized Roper Organization poll of the abduction phenomenon.  This was the first scientifically random poll to ascertain the potential number of abductees in the U.S.  The results of that influential survey were published in 1992 in the booklet, Unusual Personal Experiences.  With abduction researcher colleagues, he has given a series of workshops for members of the mental health community in the methods of abduction hypnosis, research, and therapy.  In recent years he has concentrated on developing the proper techniques for the hypnosis and therapy of abductees. In 1975, Indiana University Press published a revised version of his dissertation by Indiana University Press as The UFO Controversy in America.  It was the first positive book toward UFOs to be published by an academic press.

Dr. Jacobs was an editor for Time-Life’s best selling The UFO Phenomenon, published in 1989.  This book was one of the biggest-selling books on the phenomenon published to date. Simon & Schuster published his second book, Secret Life: Firsthand Accounts of UFO Abductions, in 1992.  The book was the most complete exposition of the structure and meaning of the abduction phenomenon yet published.  Based on over 300 accounts of abduction events, Dr. Jacobs outlined a typical abduction experience using the most complete and current information available.  This was the first UFO book published by Simon & Schuster.    Dr. Jacobs’ third, and most controversial book, The Threat, was published by Simon & Schuster in 1998.  The book addresses important questions about abductions, and clarifies issues that have been the subject of much speculation for the past fifty years.  The Threat presents the first evidence-driven hypothesis that provides a comprehensive solution to the UFO and abduction mystery.  UFOs and Abductions: Challenging the Borders of Knowledge is Dr. Jacobs most recent book and his first edited volume.  Published by the University Press of Kansas in 2000, it contains ten distinguished authors who are have contributed original articles.  It is only the second academic press book ever published that takes a predominately positive viewpoint towards the phenomenon.

Since 1972, he has appeared on hundreds of radio and television shows including, shows on the national broadcast networks, and on cable channels including Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel, the History Channel, the Fox News Channel, CNN, CNBC, the BBC, National Public Radio’s “Science Friday,” and even “The Howard Stern Show.”  His television show appearances include “Larry King Live,” “Montel Williams,” “Joan Rivers,” “The Other Side,” and many others. He has been a frequent guest on the “Coast to Coast” radio show with Art Bell.  He has been featured on numerous news magazine shows like “Current Affair,” “Hard Copy,” and so forth.  He has appeared on television shows in the UK, Europe, South America, Australia, and Japan.  Dr. Jacobs’ website is  His books are available from and bookstores everywhere.  At present he is working on a book about abduction research methodology.

Nick Pope:  Rendelsham Forest Revelations. Author, journalist and TV personality Nick Pope used to run the British Government's UFO project at the Ministry of Defense. Initially skeptical, his research and investigation into the UFO phenomenon and access to classified government files on the subject soon convinced him that the phenomenon raised important defense and national security issues, especially when the witnesses were military pilots, or where UFOs were tracked on radar. While working on the MoD's UFO project Nick Pope also looked into alien abductions, crop circles, animal mutilations, remote viewing and ghosts. He is now recognized as a leading authority on UFOs, the unexplained and conspiracy theories. He does extensive media work, lectures all around the world and has acted as presenter, consultant or contributor on numerous TV and radio shows.

Nick Pope lives in California. Britain's most famous UFO sighting is the Rendlesham Forest incident - referred to in America as the Bentwaters incident. It took place in December 1980 over a series of at least two nights. Most witnesses were United States Air Force personnel based at the twin bases of RAF Bentwaters and RAF Woodbridge, in Suffolk. Witnesses included the Deputy Base Commander, Lt Col Charles Halt. Nick Pope undertook a cold case review of the Rendlesham Forest incident in 1994, while working on the MoD's UFO project. He has written about the case extensively in the media and discussed it on numerous TV shows. For a more detailed biography, click here.
