New Film Tells the Story of George Van Tassel and His UFO-Inspired ‘Integratron’‘Air & Space Magazine
Are we witnessing a renewal of interest in unidentified flying objects? Recent revelations about a secret Defense Department project for studying UFOs continue to draw media attention, while reports of unusual aircraft sightings show up regularly in the news.
Not quite as common these days, however, are stories of individuals claiming to have had contact with extraterrestrials. In his new documentary, Calling All Earthlings, filmmaker Jonathan Berman takes a look back at one of the most famous of these “contactees,” George Van Tassel

Beginning in 1927 as an airplane mechanic right out of high school, Van Tassel had a long career in aviation, first with Douglas Aircraft, then with Hughes and Lockheed. At Hughes he was involved in flight testing near Barstow, California, where he was attracted to the “clean air, the intense quiet nights, and outdoor living in the desert.”

George Lucas reveals more details on his Star Wars sequel trilogy plans

As much as I'm extremely curious to know where George Lucas would have taken the sequel trilogy (I'm sure we haven't heard the last of it) had he remained in charge, I can't help but think that devoting so much time to explaining just how the Force works wouldn't have gone over all that well. I'm not going to lie, it's potentially interesting stuff, but I can understand why Disney decided to tell their own story.

What do you folks think? Would you prefer to have seen George Lucas' original plans for the STAR WARS sequel trilogy?

Jumping ahead.
