28 MAY 2019: 'THE HOLOGRAPHIC UNIVERSE' - Brian J. Noble
Brian J. Noble worked as a journalist, firstly with Solihull News, before moving through the Birmingham Post and Mail to the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, then briefly the Express. At the Birmingham Mail he specialised on scientific reports, which he continued in his time as a freelance writer with the Daily Mail. Later he moved to Africa, working in Kenya, Congo and Tanzania. Retiring with virtually no pension because Lord Rothermere put the pension fund into the Daily Mirror Group and Maxwell threw himself off his boat. Brian decided to put a pin in the map to decide where to retire to and he ended up in Llanelli!
Brian was the last journalist on the planet to interview John Mack before he died. He interviewed him on 25 September 2004 in Cardiff, a Saturday. On Monday the 27th John was run over and killed.
A UK, Canadian and Italian study has provided what researchers believe is the first observational evidence that our universe could be a vast and complex hologram.
Theoretical physicists and astrophysicists, investigating irregularities in the cosmic microwave background (the ‘afterglow’ of the Big Bang), have found there is substantial evidence supporting a holographic explanation of the universe – in fact, as much as there is for the traditional explanation of these irregularities using the theory of cosmic inflation.
The researchers, from the University of Southampton (UK), University of Waterloo (Canada), Perimeter Institute (Canada), INFN, Lecce (Italy) and the University of Salento (Italy), have published findings in the journal Physical Review Letters.
This concept is now reinforced by the simulation argument as proposed by Nick Bostrom of Oxford University, Brian Noble as a sometime science journalist, will attempt t0 explain what all this means exactly.
25 JUNE 2019: 'THE TRUTH WAS OUT THERE: NORTH WALES UFO INVESTIGATIONS' -
Gary Rowe has been investigating UFO sightings in Wales for decades. Originally from Machen, he 'emigrated' to Rhyl, and has been actively researching the phenomena in North Wales for many years, collaborating first with a Cheshire-based UFO group and later with Margaret Fry, he co-founded the Welsh Federation of Independent UFO Researchers and investigated many well-known reports, such as the Llanilar incident of 1982. He has given many talks to groups all over the area. SUFON members, Gari Jones, Mike Maunder and Emlyn Williams interviewed him at his home in April 2018, which is available to see on our YouTube channel. Tonight you get to meet him in the flesh, as he takes us through many of his most notable North Wales UFO investigations.
30 JULY 2019: 'SETI AND UFOS' - Ben Emlyn-Jones
SETI - the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence is a scientific project to find intelligent life beyond the earth. So is UFOlogy. Then why are the two so divided from each other?

24 SEPTEMBER 2019: 'ALIENS ON THE MOON' - Neil Geddes Ward (TBC)
30 OCTOBER 2019: 'AN INTRODUCTION TO PARANORMAL INVESTIGATION' - Kieran Woodhouse
Kieran has had a life-long interest in anything paranormal, from ghosts to Bigfoot to UFO. This interest has led him down the path of paranormal investigating. He now spends his spare time investigating haunted locations with a team and occasionally (frequently) delves into the world of UFOs and conspiracy theories. Kieran believes that these fields aren't completely disconnected and can be drawn together if the dots are connected correctly. Tonight's presentation is for those looking to start out in paranormal investigating, where he explains how different pieces of equipment are used and talks about his personal experiences using the equipment, as well as any scepticism he has towards investigating.
