Dr. Robert E. Farrell received his Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from The Ohio State University, his MBA from Western New England College and his Doctor of Engineering from the University of Massachusetts. He is now retired from Penn State University as Associate Professor Emeritus.
For most of his life, Dr. Farrell has been interested in ufology. Twenty years ago, he began doing serious research for his science fiction series of novels, Alien Log, Alien Log II: The New World Order, and Alien Log III: The Dulce Affair (Spring 2013). He believes good science fiction is based on good science. To that extent, Dr. Farrell is following the style of Michael Crichton (Andromeda Strain, Jurassic Park, and many others) and Arthur C. Clarke in his Odyssey series. Recently, he has completed a nonfiction book The Science Behind Alien Encounters. It is available as both an E-book print version. This book is based on his lecture series of the same name. Another nonfiction book in the works is a co-authored work explaining how the universe began WITHOUT a Big Bang. This book will be completed in Spring, 2013.
Dr. Farrell has lectured many times at universities, science centers, MUFON meetings, book stores, clubs, and senior centers around the country, and has appeared on numerous TV and radio shows including Coast-To-Coast AM with George Noory (2006 and 2012.
