While investigating UFO sightings for the MoD, Nick Pope was often accused of being part of a government cover-up to hide the truth about UFOs. He became interested in conspiracy theories more generally and the related issue of the psychology of belief. Nick Pope has looked into various conspiracy theories including those surrounding 9/11, the death of Princess Diana, the moon landings and the assassination of JFK. He found that when examined in detail, these conspiracy theories are based on factual inaccuracies or misinterpretations, together with fundamental misunderstandings about the way in which governments operate.
