Nick Pope was born in 1965. After having completed his education, he joined the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in 1985.
During his career there, he has held a number of interesting and very different postings. His duties have ranged from preparing briefing material for senior officers, to involvement in the policy initiative enabling women to fly as pilots in the Royal Air Force. He has also been involved in work on the Gulf War, and the situation in Bosnia.
From 1991 to 1994, Nick was responsible for investigating UFO sightings for the Ministry, and handling policy on this subject. His brief was to evaluate whether or not there was any evidence of a threat to the UK. His conclusions were both startling and controversial, and he uncovered a number of cases which seemed to involve craft with technologies considerably more advanced than our own. He concluded that some UFOs were indeed extraterrestrial in origin.
Nick also became officially involved in research into alien abductions, crop circles and animal mutilations, and has a good knowledge of the paranormal in general.
Nick still works for the MoD, where he holds the rank of Higher Executive Officer, which equates to a Major in the British Army.
Although no longer researching UFOs in an official capacity, Nick has kept up his interest in the phenomenon, and has written a book on the subject. Titled "Open Skies, Closed Minds," it gives his overview of the UFO phenomenon, coupled with an insight into his official research and investigation at the MoD. This book will be published by Simon and Schuster in June 1996.
Nick is currently researching a book on the alien abduction phenomenon, and is actively investigating a number of interesting cases. He is also planning a fictionalised account of the official response to a confirmed alien presence on Earth.
