This week on Para-talk Gareth and Reeves discuss a true photographic enigma.  The Strange case of The Cumberland Spaceman came to light in 1964, and to this day no rational explanation exists that fully details how this truly bizarre photograph came to be.

An innocent picture taking excursion by a couple and their daughter one Sunday afternoon, garnered government intrigue and a visit by the now famed MIB's (Men In Black).

Whatever this case maybe, a hoax it is not.

    Perhaps it’s a bloke in a radiation suit, standing where a nuclear power station will be in 75 years’ time 🙂

    It is a classic picture – no doubt about that… (and one of my favourites too)

    Tests of an invisible suit?

    Perhaps it’s a beekeeper?
