Balls Of Light: The Questionable Science of Crop Circles

  • Press Release [English] 21th June 2005, Journal of Scientific Exploration (JSE) published a new article about crop circles.

JSE Update, 10th July 2005

  • Eltjo Haselhoff published (29th June 2005) onto the DCCCS web site a "rapid reaction " to CICAP JSE article . Although this web reaction could be properly commented by the three authors, Grassi, Cocheo and Russo didn't consider Haselhoff's web article as the formal reply to their JSE article. For this reason they directly invited Haselhoff, and Levengood&Talbott on behalf of Haselhoff, to write an official reply and submit it to JSE journal. Haselhoff agreed with this invitation, so Grassi, Cocheo and Russo will be waiting for the JSE feedback before writing their comments.
