UFOs and nuclear weapons

I am especially interested in the link between UFOs and nuclear materials.

Robert Hastings is the lead civil researcher on the UFOs/Nukes-connection. Visit his website.

One of Hastings’ main veteran witnesses is retired USAF Captain Robert Salas who was an ICMB missileer during one of the Malmstrom incidents in March 1967. Visit Salas’ website.

In 2013 I invited Robert Hastings to give a presentation in Copenhagen about UFOs and nuclear weapons.
Filmed at Kulturhuset Islands Brygge on June 8th.
