Len will tell the remarkable story revealed in 2005 by a team of six active and retired Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) officials about a top secret, highly compartmentalized space program officially designated Project Crystal Knight, but now known as Project Serpo.
In July, 1965, twelve American military personnel were sent to a planet in a distant star system on an alien spacecraft for a projected stay of ten years. The details of this amazing adventure were released to a dedicated website by Anonymous, the spokesman for the group of six. Len's book, Secret Journey to Planet Serpo, published in 2013, has been on the publisher's Best Sellers list for over eight months. The story of this landmark event escaped the normal suppression of top secret information only because it was under the control of the DIA, and not the CIA. The implications are astounding. It means that we have a friendly relationship with a civilization of space travelers 39 light years away that offers Earth astonishing technological and scientific advancements, and a doorway to the Galaxy.
