Majestic 12: the secret team set up by the USA to probe the Roswell UFO incident
Majestic 12: the secret team set up by the USA to probe the Roswell UFO incident
A black and white film said to show an autopsy on a Roswell alien was released in 1995. It was later said to be a reconstruction of actual footage
WHAT’S THE STORY?
TOMORROW marks the 70th anniversary of the start of what is either the longest-running hoax in modern history or the biggest cover-up the world has even known.
It was on September 24, 1947, that US President Harry S Truman allegedly – there will be a lot of words like that in this profile – signed a special classified executive order to establish a committee of 12 experts to carry out a “top-secret research and development/intelligence operation” into the supposed crash of an alien spacecraft some 75 miles north-west of Roswell Army Air Field base in New Mexico. They were given the code name Majestic 12.

MORE like an unidentified flying object, really. Something certainly did crash north of Roswell in the summer of 1947, and at first it was clearly identified as a “flying disc” which had been recovered by Roswell base personnel.
A press release was even sent out from the base announcing its recovery, and local newspapers proudly reported that the “disc” had been impounded with the help of the local sheriff’s office.
Local people reported seeing plastic-like substances and wires lying at the site. The world’s most famous UFO incident and the whole saga of Area 51 – the designation of the “secret” land and air space around Roswell – was under way.

WHAT WAS IT REALLY?
IN post-war America, a spate of UFO sightings and especially flying saucers had led the populace to believe that invasion from space was imminent, this on top of the growing paranoia about the USSR and the Communist threat to the good ole US of A.
The Roswell UFO incident, as it became known, started in fairly simple terms. The version of events put out by the military authorities was that the “disc” was a weather balloon, but no-one was buying that, and quite rightly so because the authorities were already colluding in a massive cover-up. The material actually came from a huge balloon that was involved in a top-secret spying mission known as Project Mogul which used balloons equipped with microphones to listen out for Soviet atomic tests. Or so the US authorities maintain to this day.
Had the US Government simply announced the truth, Roswell would probably never have featured in films such as Independence Day or television’s Dark Skies and the X-Files, but they couldn’t tell the public about something that didn’t officially exist. It’s always the cover-up that gets you …
WAS THAT REALLY THE TRUTH?
IT took the US Government until the 1990s to admit it, but the Project Mogul explanation fits the facts. The alternative version is Majestic 12, in which the president’s dozen specialists took possession of seven to nine – depending on who you believe – crashed flying saucers and the alleged remains of up to 27 alien life forms.
According to an alleged leaked memo, we even know the names of the Majestic 12. They included Sidney William Souers, a former director of central intelligence; James Vincent Forrestal, the Secretary of Defense; Jerome Clarke Hunsaker, chairman of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics; General Nathan Farragut Twining, Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force from 1953 until 1957; Dr Vannevar Bush, head of the US Office of Scientific Research and Development during the Second World War; Detlev Bronk, internationally recognised as the developer of biophysics; Donald Howard Menzel, one of America’s greatest theoretical astronomers and astrophysicists; and General Hoyt Sanford Vandenberg, second chief of staff of the US Air Force after whom Vandenberg Air Force Base is named. None of the dozen has ever confirmed membership of Majestic 12, and let’s face it, would such men have been involved in the sort of experimentation that the “aliens” were supposed to have undergone?

SO WHY DID SO MANY PEOPLE TAKE IT SO SERIOUSLY?
THE ufologist community has been split by Majestic 12 for decades. The name only entered common usage after the allegations of a cover-up of the Roswell UFO incident emerged in the early 1980s.
Hey presto, up popped a series of “leaked” Majestic 12 documents including a memo allegedly written by Robert Cutler, assistant to President Dwight D Eisenhower, to the aforementioned General Twining, referencing Majestic 12.
More and more outlandish claims were made about Majestic 12 and allegations were made that the people who revealed the existence of the documents were involved in an elaborate hoax.
Documentaries have been produced that alternatively debunk or support the Majestic 12 theories, and one later claim was made that the whole story was an exercise in disinformation from the start, as the US Government wanted to conceal what was really going at time, namely experiments connected to the Cold War.
Both the FBI and the US Air Force have carried out lengthy inquiries and have concluded that the claims about Majestic 12 and Roswell were completely bogus. But then they would say that, wouldn’t they?
Did you guys know that there is a group that tracks yearly UFO statistics in Canada?
Because there is and they're goddamn glorious.
The main crew tracking the data is the Winnipeg-based Ufology Research Centre who just released their 2016 findings of UFO sightings in the great white north. The data—which is totally true because, you know, it's data—is produced by the centre working in cooperation with investigators and researchers all across the country. The group releases the information yearly "in an attempt to promote the dissemination of information across the field of ufology. "
So, with that in mind, let's go through these numbers, why don't we?
To start, since 1989 the crew has reported 18,038 Canadian UFO sightings or encounters. In total, there were 1,131 UFO reports officially filed in Canada—"the fifth year in a row above 1,000 cases," excitedly reads the study. The only year that had more sightings was 2015.
"This data clearly contradicts comments by those who would assert that UFOs are a 'passing fad' or that UFO sightings are decreasing in number," reads the study.
Fuck yeah, the truth is out there, fam.
Like all good studies, this one is chock full of weird little statistics and breaks down the sightings by province. Turns out, Quebecers see the most little grey men, followed by Ontario, BC, and Alberta and that summer is the best time to see the extraterrestrials. Montreal had the highest amount of any sightings in a major city with 73—Vancouver took a close second with 70.
Sadly, though, most of these sightings had "insufficient evidence" and "the percentage of UFO cases considered unexplained in 2016 has dropped to four percent, the lowest in 28 years of study," which is a total bummer. The crew writes this off as the "result of more careful scrutiny of raw report information available."
The best part comes at the tail end of the study where they keep the "unusual" reports. In this segment, you can find the short tale of a man who "reported that an alien entity was responsible for stealing his sunglasses, belt and silver possessions."
Further into the study, you can read about a person in Cornwall, PEI who had a close encounter with "a thin, six-foot-tall, long-fingered, white alien in a black suit" that appeared in his bedroom. The person then had a chat with the alien before it took its leave by walking through a wall. Meanwhile in Quebec, on the same night, a person was transported in a flash of white light to a bathtub. Here he encountered "three green, big-eyed humanoid creatures who communicated with him telepathically."
Another is straight-up elegant in its simplicity:
"A report was received which read simply, 'They contacted me!'"
The study ends with a man in northern Quebec who spotted himself a sasquatch—which I don't believe counts as an alien but, frankly, who cares, because sasquatches are awesome. Not all encounters were as wonderful as these, some are kinda, well, boring.
In total, close encounters were less than one percent, the majority of sightings (over 50 percent) were just simple lights in the sky. The study also breaks down the sightings that weren't simple lights and, oddly enough, the "flying saucer" classification only was reported five percent of times, tying it with whatever "fireball" is.
So, kiddos, keep your eyes on the sky and the curiosity in your heart strong because if you're lucky, very lucky, maybe one day you'll end up on this list.
At the very least you might see a sasquatch, which apparently counts.
Het nut van vanadium: op zoek naar microfossielen op Mars
Het nut van vanadium: op zoek naar microfossielen op Mars
Stel, een toekomstige Marsrover vindt microfossielen op de rode planeet. Hoe weten we dan dat het gaat om buitenaards leven? Onderzoekers beweren dat de rover moet zoeken naar sporen van vanadium.
Als er ooit leven was op Mars, dan moeten er microfossielen te vinden zijn. Het is lastig om microfossielen te vinden op Mars. “Het is alsof je een biefstuk veel te lang in een hogedrukpan stopt”, zegt onderzoeker Craig Marshall van de universiteit van Kansas. “Door de hitte en de druk worden biologische verbindingen vernietigd. Wat overblijft is koolstof.”
Vier scans van een acritarchide. Dit is een organisch microfossiel.
Koolstof kan gevonden worden met Ramanspectroscopie. Toch is dit niet genoeg. “Het kan zijn dat we met Ramanspectroscopie iets zien wat lijkt op leven, maar wat het niet is”, zegt Marshall. Zo kunnen er fossielachtige structuren met sporen van koolstof ontstaan rondom hydrothermale bronnen. “Het is lastig om dit verschil te zien.”
Toch denkt Marshall dat hier een oplossing voor is: vanadium. Vanadium is een overgangsmetaal en wordt gevonden in ruwe olie, asfalt en schalie. Deze materialen hebben allemaal een biologische oorsprong. Marshall: “Chlorofyllen bevatten magnesium. Eenmaal onder de grond vervangt vanadium het magnesium. Het koolstofhoudende materiaal en de chlorofyllen zitten aan elkaar vast en blijven voor altijd bewaard.”
Marshall en zijn collega’s hebben experimenten uitgevoerd met microfossielen op aarde en die zijn geslaagd. Wanneer er sprake is van echt leven, wordt ook vanadium aangetroffen.
“Hopelijk leest iemand van NASA dit paper”, zegt Marshall. Hij hoopt dat de techniek de nodige aandacht krijgt, zodat er wellicht iets mee gedaan kan worden voor de Mars 2020-missie. “De hoofdonderzoeker van de röntgenspectrometer van de Mars 2020-missie was een van mijn eerste studenten. Ik denk dat ik haar een e-mail ga sturen.”

March 13, 1997 is a date that the residents of Phoenix, Arizona will never forget. Spanning nearly 300 miles and witnessed by thousands of people, an extraordinary formation of synchronized lights began to invade the airspace over Phoenix, Arizona all the way down to Sonora, Mexico. Although the incident, as always, was discredited by the US government with their own version of the events, the Phoenix Lights remains the largest UFO sighting in history.
Check out the original footage from the 1997 Phoenix Lights incident that inspired found footage horror film, Phoenix Forgotten:
Whether you find yourself standing on the side of the skeptics, with the believers or somewhere in between, #PhoenixForgottenpromises to shed light on the chaos surrounding the infamous night with a #foundfootage horror that gazes deep into the "what-ifs," that still remain.
I was fortunate enough to sit down with Florence Hartigan, start of Phoenix Forgotten, about the upcoming found footage horror. Check out the trailer below.
Behind The Mystery Of The Phoenix Lights With 'Phoenix Forgotten' Star Florence Hartigan:
RR: So although the film is inspired by real events, your character (Sophie) is not. How does she fit into the chaos following the Phoenix Lights?
"My character Sophie is a documentary filmmaker who grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. When she was a little kid her brother, Josh [Luke Spencer Roberts], went missing after going out to the desert with two of his friends, trying to find answers to mysterious lights they’d seen in the sky. 20 years later, Sophie is still haunted by her brother’s disappearance. It’s like she’s grown up in the shadow of this tragedy, so she comes back to her home town to do some digging. She’s driven to find answers, to shed any light she can on Josh’s disappearance."
RR: Phoenix Forgotten was inspired by actual events, like so many other found footage horrors, but what made this film seem particularly promising?
"So with this film the idea was for it to feel for the viewer, like you’re watching the actual documentary that Sophie has made. So, it was important to me that my performance felt as grounded and real as possible. I mean that’s always my goal, but particularly in this project we actually have real residents of Phoenix who aren’t actors in the film, people we interview about their real life experience and thoughts, so knowing I was going to be in scenes with people just being themselves set the bar for where I wanted my performance to land. We also did a lot of improvising in this shoot. Pretty much every scene has an improvised component, so that obviously involves a lot of thinking on your feet."
RR:That sounds like a genuinely challenging role. With all the improv, how did you prepare yourself for taking on Sophie and making her authentic?
"I found it really interesting to play somebody who experiences a tragedy like this. It’s such a terrible thing to lose a sibling and for parents to lose a child like Sophie’s parents did, especially in an instance where there’s no closure. They don’t know what’s happened to him so there’s no saying goodbye really, just this endless wondering. And for Sophie, not only did she lose her brother but she essentially lost both her parents too. They both never recovered from losing Josh, so there’s all these subsidiary tragedies that go along with the main loss. I actually watched a lot of documentaries preparing for this role, especially Werner Herzog docs. He’s someone who interviews a lot of people whose lives have been shaped by tragedy. I was fascinated by how people talk about really painful things that have happened a long time ago, that’s the space Sophie occupies. When tragedy happens to you, you keep on keeping on, you have to, but there’s still all this deep emotion just under the surface. So that was a pretty interesting thing to explore.
As I mentioned before, I watched a lot of Werner Herzog documentaries. 'Grizzly Man' and 'Into The Abyss' were two that really stuck with me. I also listened to a lot of Terry Gross interviews and I revisited 'Serial' knowing I was going to be improvising and interviewing real subjects, I wanted to hone in on how really great interviewers get good material out of the people they interview. I also did a bunch of research into how missing persons cases are handled in that area, on other cases where people go missing in the desert, that kind of thing."
RR: Being unlike the other projects you have worked on in the past, is there anything special you took away from this experience?
"I think there are a couple of interesting things I took with me. For one, I had never really thought in detail about what a hostile environment the desert is and how vast it is in Arizona. We interviewed a real pilot for our film, Kevin Boontjer, who has been involved in this kind of search and rescue mission in missing persons cases like the one in our movie and you’ll see in the film, he told us just how easy it is to just disappear out there. There’s just so much ground to cover and so much rough terrain, it’s just so easy to lose people, even with dogs and planes and people looking. On the other hand, in a case like ours you will usually find something, especially with three people. And in our story, obviously nothing has been found for 20 years. So yeah, it was interesting talking to people with real experience about that stuff."
RR: Before signing on to play Sophie, were you aware of the Phoenix Lights incident that occured in 1997?
"I wasn’t, though in my research for the film I discovered it’s an incident a lot of people are really passionate about. I grew up in New Zealand, so the story didn’t quite reach me there, though it was a huge news story at the time. The 24-hour news cycle kinda picked up and ran with it and it’s the sort of story that kept getting play on its anniversary, stuff like that. That was useful in my preparation for the role too, it was so powerful for me to imagine; what if the worst thing that ever happened to you was one of the most famous things that ever happened in your town? Every time it gets brought up those old wounds get opened again. That would be devastating."
RR: Next comes the big question, and this is the one I am totally asking on a personal level. Do you believe that the Phoenix Lights - the notoriously enigmatic event that inspired Phoenix Forgotten - could have extraterrestrial origins?
"Oh sure! I think there’s so much we don’t know about the universe, so who’s to say what’s out there? I like the idea that we’re not alone in the universe.
I think going in to the film I was more inclined to think there was something a little more supernatural about the origins of the lights, but having talked to the people I talked to at this point I feel skeptical. There’s still that aspect of the case that feels like a cover-up though and we show some of that actual footage in the film. The Arizona government at the time goes a long way to make the whole thing seem like a joke. The official press conference about the sighting at the time featured a guy in an alien suit. I just think if there’s nothing there, why bother?"
RR: So how closely does this film follow along with the actual events that occurred?
"One of the things I think is a cool point of difference in our film is that it’s a blend of fact and fiction. The jumping off point for our story is a real event. The Phoenix Lights were something that actually happened, the largest recorded UFO sighting in history. In terms of accuracy, we actually use real news footage from the time as well as news footage we created to serve our story about the missing kids. So in terms of accuracy I think what’s created is a really realistic, 'what if' scenario; what if a kid had been so obsessed with the Phoenix Lights that he went looking for them?
I think it blends fact and fiction in a way I haven’t seen very often and that’s really interesting to me. I also think there are some really great performances from our cast and I think it’s a horror movie that has a really engaging, emotional heart to it...The message for me is that you should always look at where you’re getting your information from, there’s as many sides to a story as there are people to tell you that story. And don’t go wandering off into the desert at night!"
RR: Phoenix Forgotten is quickly becoming a favorite among found footage connoisseurs. Now that it's making it's way into the homes of horror fans and cinephiles everywhere, where can fans be on the lookout for you next?
"My next project is another horror movie, an animated feature called 'Malevolent.' It stars Morena Baccarin from 'Deadpool,' William Shatner and Ray Wise from 'Twin Peaks,' who plays my father. That was a cool experience. I feel like with horror so much is communicated with body language and facial expression so it was such a fun challenge to create a character just with my voice, as well as getting across all the physical gory horror stuff. I had a ball!"
Phoenix Forgotten is out now on Blu-ray and DVD. It's also available through major retailers and popular streaming platforms such as #Vimeo, #iTunes, #Amazon and #GooglePlay. For real time updates on Florence's upcoming work be sure to follow her on Twitter and Instagram.
Is it any wonder that a place as wondrous and unique as Wyoming would be the site 40 years ago for the filming of the movie “Close Encounters of the Third Kind?”
We traveled across the state last week in a grand loop which took us to Devils Tower, the country’s first national monument, which was the reason that movie was filmed there.
This tower, called Bear Lodge by the Indians, is just plain odd. It looks like a giant tree trunk (made of hardened lava) that juts out of the ground to over 800 feet high in the middle of the Wyoming Black Hills.
It was the country’s first national monument back in 1912. And of course a huge Facebook rumor went out this year where it was claimed that archeologists discovered it really was a tree trunk with petrified roots deep underground. Alas, not true.
But first, let me tell you about our latest road trip around the state. Our drive took us through Wind River Canyon to Thermopolis and Worland and over the Big Horn Mountains to Buffalo and Gillette before getting to Devils Tower. Our trip home was through Hulett, Moorcroft, Gillette, Wright, Casper, Shoshoni and Riverton.
That route took me through some of the best viewing areas of the recent solar eclipse.
Melissa Neylon, who works at the Washakie Museum and Culture Center in Worland, was at Boysen for the eclipse and said 39,000 cars were counted all over the park.
Wyoming native Alan O’Hashi, who made a video on Vimeo about the eclipse, said Glendo hit that magic number of 50,000 people which they were expecting for the eclipse.
I’m not sure if Shoshoni got the 40,000 visitors they were expecting, but they did get something permanent about the event.
At the extreme northeast part of town is a unique monument built by some odd visitors who build these things where eclipse epicenters are located. The only other one is in Namibia, Africa.
A fringe group with some serious money behind it built this edifice. Members believe there are actually two moons and during an eclipse, an alternate universe comes into play. The group is headed by Eames Demetrios of Greece and quite a little group gathered at the Shoshoni site during the eclipse. We don’t think they tore their clothes off or sacrificed any animals during the event, but based on seeing this concoction of strange objects — well, they must have had a really good time.
One of Wyoming’s greatest photographers is Dewey Vanderhoff of Cody, and he was telling me about this site and he provided some of this research on it.
He also took some wonderful eclipse photos from his vantage point in Shoshoni.
Dewey was also impressed by the bumper-to-bumper traffic from Shoshoni to Casper. Here is how he described it:
“Try to imagine a solid caravan of cars all the way from Shoshoni to Casper and beyond after the eclipse. This is 100 miles of unbroken, solid traffic. If each car is a dot and the space between them a dash, it spelled out SOS over and over again. Allowing for a generous average of 50 feet per vehicle, that works out to 10,560 cars at any one time during the mass exodus from Wyoming.” The real total was probably much more than this as it went on all afternoon and early evening.
Huge numbers of people left the next day, which were not included in the record counts compiled by the Wyoming Department of Transpiration.
Also on the list of eclipse oddities, there was the report of a man jumping off a cliff in central Wyoming at an abandoned uranium open pit mine.
Apparently there was water in the bottom, but he missed and scratched the heck out of himself. Luckily, a passer-by saw the leap and called 9-1-1.
Meanwhile, the partying continued back at Devils Tower as they celebrated the 40th anniversary of the famous movie. Among the contests was one to see who could make the best replica of the tower out of mashed potatoes. Now that could be a real test.
With the country and the world focused on Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in Texas and Florida, there really is not much interest in what is happening here in Wyoming. But I thought it important to document some of the oddball events that have been going on here.
UFO expert reveals US Navy is running a top secret programme to detect underwater UFOs
UFO expert reveals US Navy is running a top secret programme to detect underwater UFOs
US Navy is secretly running a top secret programme -- Fast Mover Programme to spot unidentified submerged object (USO).
Facebook/ U.S. Navy
Marc D'Antonio, a UFO expert revealed the US Navy is secretly running a programme called Fast Mover Programme to spot extra terrestrial spacecrafts, known as unidentified submerged object (USO), under the ocean waters.
He claimed he was on a US Navy submarine in the North Atlantic Ocean, where he saw a USO which travelled at an impossible speed of 700 knots.
Torpedoes and submarines travel in a maximum speed of 40 knots.
"As a thank you for doing some work for the Navy, they asked me if I wanted to go for a ride in a submarine so I said yes. Once we got under I was sitting in the sonar station and the sonar operator was sitting right next to me," said D'Antonio as reported by Express.
"Submarines are loud – people think they are very quiet and it's true they are on the outside because the sound doesn't get out. But inside you hear fans, noise - it's a constant din on a sub. I was sitting there zoning out a little because I was seasick and all of a sudden the sonar kid shouts 'fast mover, fast mover'. I'm jolted awake thinking 'what's happening? Is it a torpedo?" he said further.
"So he basically confirmed to me that the programme exists - he said everything without seeing anything. What that told me was that USOs are common. We even have a programme in place to classify, log and determine the speed of them and it goes into a vault," according to the Express report.
These revelations were made by D'Antonio in a meeting hub -- Wyoming at Devil's Tower UFO Rendezvous— in Hulett. UFO hunters and UFOlogists share and research on the findings made by them regarding any alien and unidentified findings.
In July of 1947, a foreman at a homestead in New Mexico found a pile of debris some miles from his home. He took his son to go look at it, finding a bright wreckage of tinfoil, rubber strips and various paper and sticks. It seemed of little consequence to him, but he returned a few days later with the rest of his family to collect the material. The next day, the foreman heard reports from an army base about a so-called “flying disk” crash and, thinking that perhaps this was the debris he had picked up, went to the Sheriff immediately. The situation was handled in a confidential but polite manner. The U.S. military assured the citizens that the crash was a simple conventional weather balloon. The residents of the small town nodded and returned to the buzz of their normal lives, the story fading to the back of any and everyone’s mind. The military had always been a little secretive and looming, but they were the government and could be trusted, of course. It wasn’t until decades later that anyone would be back asking questions about Roswell, New Mexico.
The military base known today as Area 51 is a remote link of the Edwards Air Force base in Nevada. It is referred to by the Central Intelligence Agency as “Groom Lake” – the nickname “Area 51” originally coming from reports during the Vietnam War. It is known in popular culture to be a place of great mystery: UFO sightings, government conspiracy, and withheld information litter the history of the base. Over the decades, Area 51 has been accused of the storage and reverse engineering of alien technology, the study of those aliens alive and dead, and the development of time travel and teleportation equipment. Seeming to feed these nationwide suspicions, the current purpose of Area 51 remains unknown to the public. In fact, it wasn’t until July of 2013 that the CIA openly admitted to the existence of the base. Some history was offered to the public, and then the case was abruptly closed. It would seem that the most likely purpose of Area 51 is the development and testing of confidential air and spacecraft weapons systems, otherwise known as Black Projects. Though it has never been declared a secret base, all research conducted there is labeled Sensitive Compartmented Information.
However, there are a great many secret bases across the nation and the world, and even more UFO sightings, so what draws theorists and government officials alike to this empty area of the desert? Surely the plain factor of mass hysteria cannot be overlooked, but it is most definitely balanced by a series of dubious occurrences. The first of which, on a mainstream scale, was a sighting in 1955. Ordinarily enough, the first UFOs spotted were not of a blatant extraterrestrial nature, but rather new weapons testing. The site was being used by the CIA for the development of the Lockheed U-2 strategic reconnaissance aircraft. What the locals who reported these strange aircrafts didn’t know was that three years earlier, in 1952, Project Blue Book had paid a visit to the base.
Project Blue Book was a study conducted by the United States Air Force with two goals: the first was to determine if a unidentified flying object could be a threat to national security, and the second was to scientifically analyze said UFO data. Of course, this all seems to have a funny smell to it. A military program making judgments and final calls on the safety and legitimacy of its own operations is perhaps not the most reliable situation. Unsurprisingly, Blue Book reported no threats to national security and, interestingly enough, no UFOs that contained extraterrestrial life. In 1952, this response left no questions screaming for answers, and the matter was put to rest. Coincidentally, five years prior, in 1947, a small town foreman and his son found a pile of debris in Roswell, New Mexico. These stories become perpendicular at this point, for the wreckage of that mysterious aircraft in New Mexico was transferred to where but Area 51.
Suspicions continued to rise following another incident, this one related less directly to the hiding of extraterrestrial technology and more to the missteps of the military. In 1994, five resident contractors (who insisted on remaining anonymous in official reports), and the widows of contractors Robert Frost and Walter Kasza sued the United States Air Force and the Environmental Protection Agency. They claimed that immense amounts of unknown chemicals were being burned in open trenches at Area 51- more specifically, Groom Lake. Tissue samples were taken from the petitioners, and their body fat revealed high levels of dioxin (a highly toxic organic chemical), dibenzofuran (a chemical derived from coal tar), and trichloroethylene (a compound often used as an industrial solvent). They argued that these chemicals had harmed their health and, in the case of the widows, killed their husbands. They sought knowledge about the chemicals so that they could take precautions to prevent future injury. However, they were denied. Citing the State Secrets Privilege, the base claimed that releasing information would be a threat to national security and would discharge military secrets. The judge on the case rejected this argument, siding with the petitioners. At this point, dramatic measures were called for. President Bill Clinton signed a Presidential Determination protecting Area 51 from environmental disclosure laws, and the case was henceforth dismissed due to supposed lack of evidence. Whatever it was that was burning at Groom Lake, the military had just sacrificed human lives for it.
Outside of popular culture gags about UFOs and conspiracy accounts, the deeper history of Area 51 seems to present a serious question about the power of the military in our nation and what it is exactly that they constitute as “national security”. Whether you believe in the government’s possession of extraterrestrial science or just think Groom Lake is a spooky place, one thing is clear: it is of utmost importance to the Unites States Military that we do not find out.
VIDEOBoven ons land lichtte een heldere vuurbol gisteravond de hemel op. Het ging om een klein steentje dat met tienduizenden kilometer per uur in de dampkring verbrandde en zo een heel heldere 'vallende ster' werd. Hier zie je nog beelden van zeven prachtige vuurballen en een ufo die de voorbije jaren werden gefilmd!
Wie gisteravond rond 21 uur naar omhoog tuurde, heeft 'm misschien wel gezien: een heldere vuurbol schoot door de lucht. Veel Belgen en Nederlanders maakten er melding van op sociale media. "Het gaat om een klein steentje dat met een snelheid van tienduizenden kilometer per uur de dampkring binnenkomt. Het doet de lucht fel oplichten en wij zien het dan als een vuurbol", zegt weerman Frank Deboosere.
Noodweer Benelux kreeg gisteravond heel wat meldingen binnen. De vuurbol die rond 21 uur boven vele dorpen en steden te zien was, ook in Nederland, is eigenlijk een heel heldere vallende ster. "Die is vaak niet groter dan één centimeter", zegt Deboosere. De meteoriet kan, wanneer ze in de dampkring komt, heel fel gaan schijnen. "Zo helder als de volle maan of zelfs nog helderder", vervolgt Deboosere. "Meestal is het leven van een vuurbol erg kort en dus quasi onmogelijk om op beeld vast te leggen. Na één of twee seconden is alles voorbij." Wie het verschijnsel heeft waargenomen, kan dat melden.
Intussen is ook een prachtige foto van het fenomeen op het web verschenen. Een Nederlandse fotograaf slaagde erin om de vuurbol vast te leggen met zijn speciale camera en zette het beeld op Twitter.
In september vorig jaar had planetoïde 288P zijn kleinste afstand tot de zon bereikt, en stond ze dicht genoeg tot de aarde om er in de asteroïdengordel tussen Mars en Jupiter de Hubble op te richten.
Het bleek dat 288P niet één object was, maar dat het uit twee bijna even grote asteroïden bestaat die op een afstand van ongeveer honderd kilometer om elkaar draaien.
Zeer waarschijnlijk waren ze aanvankelijk een enkelvoudig object dat zo snel om zijn as draaide dat het in stukken brak, zeggen de astronomen.
Bovendien waren de planetoïden onder invloed van de zonnewarmte bezig waterdamp uit te stoten. Dat maakt 288P tot de eerste dubbelplanetoïde waarbij komeetachtig gedrag is waargenomen, zo staat in de mededeling.
Gezien 288P nog waterijs bevat, kan de dubbelplanetoïde niet ouder zijn dan pakweg 5.000 jaar.
Ons eigen sterrenstelsel - de Melkweg - is altijd de referentie geweest om andere sterrenstelsels in het universum te bestuderen. Maar nieuw onderzoek van enkele buurstelsels lijkt erop te wijzen dat we niet zo een typisch voorbeeld zijn als we wel dachten. En dat kan verregaande gevolgen hebben voor alles wat we menen te weten over ons universum.
De nieuwe data staan in de Satellites Around Galactic Analogs (SAGA) Survey. Die probeert meer te weten te komen over onze Melkweg door andere, soortgelijke systemen te bestuderen. De afgelopen vijf jaar nam de studie acht andere stelsels onder de loep en daaruit blijkt dat de satellietstelsels die rond onze Melkweg draaien veel minder actief zijn dan bij onze buren. Ze zijn minder helder en produceren ook minder sterren. Als dat wordt bevestigd door onderzoek van nog andere stelsels, zou dat betekenen dat onze Melkweg minder 'normaal' is dan we dachten.
"En dat geeft een ander perspectief", aldus Marla Geha, de auteur van de studie, die gepubliceerd werd in het vaktijdschrift Astrophysical Journal. "Er komen elk jaar honderden studies uit over kosmologie, het vormen van sterren en donkere materie. En die gebruiken ons eigen sterrenstelsel als referentie. Maar het zou dus wel eens kunnen dat onze Melkweg eerder een uitzondering is. En dan gaan die redeneringen niet zomaar op, natuurlijk."
Modellen Als dat zo is, kan dat dus gevolgen hebben voor ons begrip van andere sterrenstelsels. Om te weten of onze modellen dus effectief betrouwbaar zijn en de theorie klopt, wil de SAGA Survey in totaal 100 sterrenstelsels bestuderen. Want het staal van acht dat nu werd gebruikt, is nog te klein om echt harde conclusies te trekken. De komende twee jaar zullen al 25 andere systemen aan het onderzoek worden toegevoegd en dat moet al een beter beeld geven.
A resident of Grovetown, Georgia had taken a brief look skyward during a football game on a Friday night. During the match between the Grovetown Warriors and the Lincoln County Red Devils, he noticed a wedge-shaped object moving west to east at a slow rate of speed. He observed the UFO’s triangular light configuration from the stands.
The witness, who chooses to stay anonymous, tried to record the aberration using his cell phone, but it malfunctioned. He decided to borrow the phone of a friend to take a photo of the mysterious UFO. He then sent the picture to Donnie Brooke, a member of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) – Georgia Chapter.
Brooke confirmed that he received the picture on the night of September 1 and that the witness knows him personally. He said that the witness told him the UFO was moving eastward toward Fort Gordon Army Base. The witness revealed to him over the phone that he looked skyward while leaning back in his seat and saw a humongous object.
Brooke called the witness after receiving the photo. He said to the witness that the image was somewhat similar to a triangle object he saw about eight months ago. The object that Brooke saw was also moving towards Fort Gordon. The story of the witness confirmed what he had encountered, according to Brooke.
Brooke sent the photo to Georgia MUFON director Ralph O. Howard, who said that it is compelling. Howard stated that there are several witnesses of UFOs in the area but did not report them because they are afraid of what others will think. He is hoping that the witness who sent the photo logs to their site and files a report so that they can get enough information. He explained that without having those details, they could not launch an investigation and establish whether the actual event is what the witness believes he saw or not.
Flying Saucers in Red, Green & Yellow Colors Spotted Hovering For Two Hours Over Military Bases In Antarctica
Flying Saucers in Red, Green & Yellow Colors Spotted Hovering For Two Hours Over Military Bases In Antarctica
Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter once revealed via the New York Times in 1960 that high-ranking Air Force officers led many citizens to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense through official secrecy and ridicule.
Hillenkoetter is the very first director of the Central Intelligence Agency, the third director of Central Intelligence, and the third director of the post-World War II US Central Intelligence Group. For so many years, people who believe in the existence of alien UFOs are perceived as crazy individuals. In the present time, however, is a much different story. Thousands of declassified documents reveal that global militaries and intelligence agencies have an extremely high interest in UFOs and intelligent extraterrestrial life.
In 1979, General Carlos Castro Cavero stated that everything is in the process of investigation in the world as both the US and Spain, as well as the rest of the word, are working together in the UFO phenomenon studies.
Lord Admiral Hill-Norton once said that there is a serious possibility people from outer space or other civilisations have visited or been visiting for many years here on Earth. He suggested that there should be a rigorous scientific investigation to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want. He said that the possibility should not be the subject of rubbishing as these people from outer space could turn hostile.
In one CIA document, several pieces of information can be found suggesting particular attention paid to UFO or extraterrestrial topic under the guise of national security. According to many conspiracy theories, the intelligence community has been studying the subject for years and using the term ‘national security’ to classify everything, protect the interests of the elites around the world, and enable them to do whatever they want.
The CIA document reveals details of the Antarctic flying saucers. It says that Argentine, Chilean and British military bases in Antarctica have seen a group of red, green, and yellow flying saucers above Deception Island for two hours. The saucer UFOs were also observed flying in formation above the South Orkney islands in quick circles. The document dates back to 1965, more than five decades old already.
Conspiracy theorists have pointed out how other unrelated factors are inserted into the document.
It is also important to note that the 1965 document shows the CIA have been putting tremendous effort and resources into studying such topic. Now, it makes sense to ponder what type of information do they have at present, more than 50 years later. They may have known more details as to who or what are operating these UFOs, how they work, where they come from, and what are their intentions
Three People From Different Areas Spot Similar UFO
Three People From Different Areas Spot Similar UFO
Three people have come forward claiming that they photographed and videotaped a UFO in the skies over Plymouth. Alan Kingwell, 62, was one of the witnesses of the appearance of strange black shapes. Alan was shooting a time-lapse video in his garden in Plymouth when the UFO sighting took place. The footage shows two dark shapes hovering in the blue sky that sometimes covered with clouds.
David Shepherd of Plymstock also noticed similar shapes on one of his photos. He believes may have spotted the same UFO.
Earlier in the summer, Mr Shepherd photographed a block blob. He noticed a little black shape after an X shape of aeroplane contrails in the sky caught his attention. The strange UFO that was below them looked similar to what Mr Kingwell caught on video. Like what Alan described, the black shaped UFO lingered for around 10 minutes before it disappeared.
On September 15, John Mooner of Newton Abbot also saw the same UFO. He stated that he was sky watching with his Nikon P900 camera when he spotted the unusual object hovering just above one of the clouds. Since the object was stationary, he took a photo and continued to watch as it remained in one position for around a minute before it finally started to move and flew off at incredible speed. He then lost sight of the object as it headed towards some thick cloud cover.
'We saw something. Something came down': The Shag Harbour UFO sighting, 50 years later
'We saw something. Something came down': The Shag Harbour UFO sighting, 50 years later
It was around 11 p.m. on the night of Oct. 4, 1967. Most witnesses thought it was a doomed aircraft
HALIFAX — The first frantic callers to reach the RCMP were clear: something had crashed in the waters off Shag Harbour, N.S.
It was around 11 p.m. on the night of Oct. 4, 1967. Most witnesses thought it was a doomed aircraft.
Among those who saw the string of flashing lights on that clear, moonless night were three RCMP officers, scores of fishermen and airline pilots flying along the province’s rugged southwest coast.
But a series of searches turned up nothing. No wreckage. No bodies. No clues as to what really happened that night 50 years ago.
To this day, I don't know the absolute answer, but we're still finding things
A Halifax-area man later uncovered a trove of government and police records that would make the Shag Harbour incident Canada’s best-documented and most intriguing UFO sighting.
Hundreds of UFO sightings are reported across Canada every year, but none has the paper trail of Shag Harbour.
In a series of RCMP reports and correspondence sent by telex between military officials in Ottawa and Halifax, there are specific references to unidentified flying objects, and no attempts were made to explain away what people were reporting.
Chris Styles, the UFO researcher who dug up those documents, remains baffled by the case.
“To this day, I don’t know the absolute answer, but we’re still finding things,” says Styles, the author of two books about the Shag Harbour incident.
Next week, on the eve of the 50th anniversary, Styles will be the keynote speaker at the start of the three-day Shag Harbour UFO Festival. After 20-plus years of dogged research, he says he has new evidence to share.
It points to an explanation that hardly seems possible, unless you have a sense of what Styles has uncovered so far.
To be sure, the most compelling evidence comes from eyewitnesses like Laurie Wickens, now a 67-year-old former fisherman.
There was four (lights) in a row, and they were going on and off
“There was four (lights) in a row, and they were going on and off,” says Wickens, at the time a 17-year-old driving home to Shag Harbour with a friend and three young women. “One would come on, then two, three and four — and they’d all be off for a second and come back on again.”
Sure he was about to witness an airline disaster, Wickens found a phone booth and called the local RCMP detachment. Questions were asked about his sobriety. But he wasn’t drunk, and he was sure about what he saw.
Several other people called the Mounties that night. They all told same story.
Soon afterwards, Wickens was among a dozen or so people gathered at the water’s edge, watching in amazement as a glowing, orange sphere — about the size of a city bus — bobbed on the waves about 300 metres from shore.
At 11:20 p.m., it slipped beneath the surface without a sound.
Three of those at the wharf were Mounties. One of them called the Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Halifax. A coast guard cutter was immediately dispatched to conduct a search.
All I know is that we saw something, and something came down. I can't prove it, but in my opinion they found something
Before the ship arrived, volunteer searchers aboard two fishing boats soon spotted a long trail of bubbling, yellow foam on the calm waters — but no wreckage.
A squad of Royal Canadian Navy divers later failed to turn up any clues after a three-day scan of the harbour floor, according to official military records.
To this day, Wickens has no idea what he saw.
“All I know is that we saw something, and something came down,” he says, adding that he believes the divers pulled something from the water.
“I can’t prove it, but in my opinion they found something.”
Wickens, now president of the Shag Harbour UFO Society, will take part in a panel discussion Saturday that is expected to include Ralph Loewinger, one of the pilots aboard Pan Am Flight 160, a Boeing 707 cargo aircraft that was at 33,000 feet that same night.
They saw the same row of flashing lights over the Gulf of Maine as they approached to coast of Nova Scotia.
Nobody reported a UFO. Everybody reported a plane crash. That gives a boost of credibility to the story
Loewinger and the other crew members never reported their sighting. Their story came to light about six years ago when Styles tracked them down.
“What sets this story apart is that the impact … was witnessed by several independent and very credible witnesses,” says Brock Zinck, a Nova Scotia seafood buyer and vice-president of the Shag Harbour UFO Society.
“Nobody reported a UFO. Everybody reported a plane crash. That gives a boost of credibility to the story.”
About 36 hours after the initial sightings, several Defence Department officials signed off on a memo that made it clear authorities had no idea what they were dealing with.
“A preliminary investigation has been carried out by the Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Halifax,” the memo says. “It has been determined that this UFO sighting was not caused by a flare, float, aircraft or in fact any known object.”
It’s worth noting the search at Shag Harbour was conducted during a highly charged period in Canada’s history.
The space race was on and so was the Cold War. Russian submarines were known to frequent the East Coast. And the Americans were testing all manner of devices to spy on their communist foes, including crude spy satellites that ejected film canisters at high altitudes.
While the official records provide no explanation for what happened, there are vague clues pointing to another incident about 50 kilometres north, just off the coast of Shelburne.
In his 2001 book, Dark Object, Styles says he eventually interviewed former military insiders and members of the navy’s Fleet Diving Unit, who told him the orange orb spotted in Shag Harbour had submerged under its own power and travelled to a spot on the seabed off Shelburne.
At the time, the area was the location for a top-secret U.S. military base, disguised as an oceanographic institute. The facility used underwater microphones and magnetic detection devices to track enemy submarines, but its true purpose wasn’t revealed until the 1980s.
“I interviewed anybody who was still alive,” Styles says. “I tracked them down. I was a bulldog with it back then.”
In the book, Styles’ sources talk about a secret flotilla of American and Canadian ships dispatched to the area. There was speculation about Russian submarines and, yes, extraterrestrial visitors. But there is no hard evidence to back their claims.
But the clues keep coming.
During a recent search of an island off Shag Harbour, Styles says he spotted a military marker that indicated it was placed there by staff from the fake institute in Shelburne, which means the U.S. military snoops had been there at some point.
“I’m not here to make believers,” he says. “Some people say I’m a believer, but that’s a bit of an exaggeration. I want the real answers.”
After 13 years, nearly 300 orbits and millions of scientific observations, NASA scientists directed the Cassini probe to burn up in Saturn's atmosphere last week.
They ended the mission because the spacecraft's fuel was nearly depleted, meaning that NASA would have lost the ability to control Cassini's trajectory and could not guarantee it would not crash into a sensitive site like the icy moon Enceladus, which could potentially harbor extraterrestrial life
Saturn and Enceladus are currently more than 930 million miles from Earth, but humankind seems to have less dedication to cleanliness in space closer to home. Even as space-based services like weather forecasting and GPS become an intimate, inseparable part of our daily lives, we risk the sustainability of the space environment through sloppy practices that could make near-Earth space into a perilous demolition derby.
Right now, more than 500,000 pieces of space debris (ranging in size from that of a marble to a school bus) closely orbit the Earth. This space junk — such as defunct satellites or rocket parts left over from past launch missions — can whip around uncontrollably at 17,500 miles per hour. In space, a fleck of paint can bring about more damage than can a speeding bullet on Earth.
What’s more, this debris field is poised to grow significantly in coming years. The danger of hurtling space debris destroying crucial satellites will grow quickly and could spike suddenly. In 2009, the derelict Cosmos 2251 satellite collided with an active Iridium 33 satellite that was providing global cell phone service. Both satellites were destroyed, creating 3,000 smaller tracked pieces of debris and hundreds of thousands too small to detect but that pose dangers to other spacecraft.
The U.S. military is concerned about space debris because it threatens the critical role space plays in America’s national security, from intelligence collection to communication and navigation. But every inoperative satellite or stray object makes space more difficult and dangerous for many users, not just the military. This is something of interest to anyone who wants a good weather forecast, relies on a ridesharing app or even just loves Snapchat.
As these threats increase, my colleagues at the non-profit Aerospace Corporation are collaborating with the government, space industry and partners around the world on solutions to space debris challenges. We help the U.S. government set design requirements and assist vehicle contractors to design spacecraft that can maneuver to avoid collisions, withstand small debris strikes and move to disposal orbits or safely reenter the Earth’s atmosphere at end of life.
As the number of satellite launches grows, launch safety is increasingly important, so we have developed probability-based screening of launch trajectories to ensure that a new launch will not collide with known objects in orbit. And when it comes to the daunting process of removing space debris, Aerospace is preparing to test the Brane Craft — a super-thin, flexible sheet to envelop debris and haul it safely back into Earth’s atmosphere.
Policymakers worldwide need to recognize that dramatic growth in the commercial space sector is increasing congestion in space and represents a shift from the decades in which governments dominated the domain. New commercial players are advancing promising new space applications with real economic potential. That is why more than 10,000 satellites are slated to launch over the next decade compared to only 7,800 since the dawn of the space age. That is also why a "just say no" regulatory approach is not a viable path to space sustainability.
With so many new entrants to the space industry, including from nations with little history of spacefaring, future U.S. space industry economic competitiveness would benefit from sensible regulatory simplification to keep the U.S. as the home of choice for space companies. Today, three separate U.S. government agencies — the Federal Aviation Administration, the Federal Communications Commission and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration — have major legal responsibilities for regulating orbital debris mitigation as part of their licensing roles.
A "one-stop shop" for regulation and licensing could facilitate both solutions to the emerging debris threat and greater regulatory responsiveness and clarity for new players. However, an overly blunt deregulatory approach could put space sustainability at risk, which is in no one's long-term interest.
Time is of the essence here. Congestion in space is no trivial issue, and the effects will eventually be widely felt. Inaction from the U.S. could cede economic and military advantage to other players. By leading the world in advancing down technically feasible and economically viable paths to space sustainability, the U.S. can continue to benefit from the growing space economy and rely on space for vital national security missions.

Let’s just get this out of the way up front: Nibiru, aka Planet X, does not exist. It is not going to collide with Earth on Saturday. And the end time is not about to begin.
NASA helped explain this back on December 21, 2012, when people incorrectly thought the Mayan calendar foretold the end of the world, and we’re here to remind you again that the scientists at NASA who’ve dedicated their lives to enhancing human understanding of space know way more about space than you or any YouTuber do.
The Planet X conspiracy theory has gained traction over the years as trust in public institutions has fallen and the internet has enabled amateur sleuths to amplify, legitimize, and present their “research” to a wider audience.
Enter Planet X.
According to a small but vocal group of conspiracy theorists, a planet called Nibiru, or Planet X, intercepts Earth’s orbit ever 3,600 years, passing within 14 million miles of Earth — the sun is 93 million miles away, so this would put Nibiru pretty close. They have some pseudoscientific reasons that supposedly explain why we can’t see this planet that’s allegedly about to crash into us, but we at Inverse find NASA’s 2012 explanations more compelling and scientifically rigorous:
Q: Is there a planet or brown dwarf called Nibiru or Planet X or Eris that is approaching the Earth and threatening our planet with widespread destruction?
A: Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax. There is no factual basis for these claims. If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth in 2012, astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye. Obviously, it does not exist. Eris is real, but it is a dwarf planet similar to Pluto that will remain in the outer solar system; the closest it can come to Earth is about 4 billion miles.
Of course, for those who subscribe to the school of thought that gives rise to such conspiracy theories as Nibiru or the flat Earth, NASA’s authority is irrelevant. NASA’s official statements simply prove the depth of the cover-up.
But for those who believe in science and the scientific process, here’s another gem from NASA’s 2012 debunk … which went live on December 22, 2012, the day after the Earth was supposed to be destroyed. It’s as true now as it was then:
Q: How do NASA scientists feel about claims of the world ending in 2012?
A: For any claims of disaster or dramatic changes in 2012, where is the science? Where is the evidence? There is none, and for all the fictional assertions, whether they are made in books, movies, documentaries or over the Internet, we cannot change that simple fact. There is no credible evidence for any of the assertions made in support of unusual events taking place in December 2012.
Where’s the science? Where’s the evidence? There is none. Let’s put this Planet X thing to bed once and for all.

“Aliens are Real” was the title of the first lecture I sat in on during the first annual UFO Rendezvous held in Hullet, Wyoming, this past week.
The UFO Rendezvous was a three-day conference held near Mato Tipila (Devil’s Tower). The event was held in conjunction with 40-year anniversary of the release of the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The gathering brought together those who claimed to have been abducted, academics and ufologists, as well as curious minds like myself.
The first lecture was a presentation about powerful figures who had either admitted to believing in extraterrestrials or who had they had first hand knowledge of their existence. The session set the stage for the next speaker who was none other than Travis Walton. Travis Walton is the inspiration behind the film Fire in the Sky. The movie has now become a cult classic and is considered to be a depiction of the most widely documented alien abduction ever.
Mr. Walton’s talk centered around correcting inaccuracies in the movie and on debunking critics who claim that it was a hoax. According to Walton, he was abducted in the woods near his work site. The incident was witnessed by several of his coworkers who saw an object floating in the woods that resembled an extraterrestrial craft. Walton would appear five days later at a location 15-miles away from the original site where the craft was seen by his coworkers. Mr. Walton passionately, and with great detail, explained his version of the night he was abducted and his experience while he was missing from this earth. He would then provide evidence that the United States government had worked to undermine his story. I will never know for sure if he was telling the truth, but what I do know is that as a Lakota it is hard to not at least give a guy the benefit of the doubt when he says the government is up to some shady things.
His speech would spark a discussion about the merits of disclosure. In the alien research community, the term disclosure has sort of become the Holy Grail and refers to the moment that world governments release their files on this matter. Mr. Walton believes that the general public could not handle this revelation should it occur. He feels that a steady trickling of information would be more effective and safer.
Lakota people do have knowledge of beings from other worlds visiting this earth. That discussion however is for other people to provide details on. I never pretend to be an expert on any parts of our spiritual beliefs.
What I know is that Lakota people would welcome disclosure. We are humble enough to recognize that as humans we know very little about the universe and that there are powers greater than us.
When the day for disclosure comes I guarantee that there will be a Lakota sitting somewhere saying, “We told you so.”
