RIP, Phil Klass

From Lindsay Beyerstein’s always excellent blog, Majikthise:

KlassMy friend Ted just emailed me to say that the world’s preeminent UFO skeptic this week at the age of 85. Florida Today has an obituary for Phil Klass.

Phil was a founding member of the Committee For Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP) and a longtime editor of Aviation Week & Space Technology magazine. He was one of the most ferocious UFO-debunkers in the history of modern skepticism.

Phil was a colleague of my Dad’s through CSICOP.
