Friedman, who devoted his life to researching and investigating unidentified flying objects, was credited with bringing the 1947 Roswell incident to the mainstream – according to Time Magazine, Friedman “painstakingly sought out and interviewed other witnesses, and came to a dramatic conclusion: there had been a cover-up of ‘cosmic Watergate’ proportions.”
The Roswell incident was the first case where the U.S. military and the federal government was thought to have covered up a UFO crash.
Friedman grew up in Linden, New Jersey, and worked as a nuclear physicist for 14 years for General Electric, Westinghouse, and McDonnell-Douglas.
He became interested in UFOs in 1958 and started lecturing on the topic in 1967.
“The universe works on fusion folks — like it or not,” he said during a lecture in 2018. “That’s what goes on in all those stars out there and so we’re babes in the woods. It’s not surprising that we haven’t expanded our thinking . . . I expect that my great-grandson will be alive when we send visitors to other planets, maybe colonies out there — and maybe we welcome a biannual meeting of the galactic federation global neighborhood association, so to speak.”
