CHENNAI: I n 1980, Charles Berlitz and Bill Moore published Roswell Incident aided by the research of Stanton Friedman. This book opened a can of worms so to speak, as more and more eye witnesses began to come forward with authentic cross verifiable account of the 1947 Roswell UFO crash.
In 1992, Friedman and aviation and science writer came together to publish Crash at Corona: The Definitive Study of the Roswell Incident, which was updated in 1997 with even more additional testimony. I have to make one thing clear. The UFO did not crash at Roswell, it actually crashed at Corona. Roswell was the largest city within 75 miles of the crash site, where the UFO wreckage was first taken.
Colonel Richard Weaver wrote the 904-page book, The Roswell Report: Fact Vs Fiction in the New Mexico Desert and in 1997 Captain James McAndrew published The Roswell Report: Case Closed.
UFO researchers who studied them accused these two officers of making a mockery out of a serious investigation. They had used all the tools of the propagandist with selective choice of data, false reasoning, false claims, positive and negative name calling.
Since the UFO crashed in 1947, the Air Force has so far come out with four different explanations. First, it was a flying saucer which was true. Immediately it was replaced by General Roger Ramey with a radar reflector and weather balloon story, which was later replaced with the Mogul balloon train with 23 balloons and sonobuoys story. Finally when more genuine, cross verifiable eye witnesses started talking about alien dead bodies, the American Air Force came up with the fourth explanation.
It was a Mogul balloon train with crash test dummies. This dummy story had many holes. First, the eye witnesses said the alien bodies were small, around three feet tall, weighing around 60 pounds. But a crash test dummy would be the size of a typical soldier, around six feet tall and 180 pounds.
Secondly the dummies were tested only in 1953, but the crash took place in 1947. This obviously means that these were Time Travelling Dummies who travelled six years into the past and crashed at Roswell.
Finally, Air Force Colonel Madson who was also involved in the research programme refuted the dummy explanation. Till this day these two officers have not accepted Friedman’s challenge to a formal debate on the subject on TV. Why?
Some readers may ask is it that important for us to seek the truth behind the Roswell crash? The answer lies in two words — Energy Independence. The Roswell crash is a classic example of Close Encounters of Third Kind, where we have parts of a crashed UFO and alien bodies.
Last 70 years of observation, which includes the six major official scientific studies on the UFO phenomenon in 1953, 1964, 1968, 1969, 1972 and 1999, has shown that UFOs are not powered by fossil fuels like petrol or chemicals like liquid hydrogen and oxygen. Reverse engineering of crashed UFOs will open the doors to radical technologies that will put an end to global fossil fuel addiction ending global warming, climate change and pollution.
Since this is very good news for the 87 million life forms including 7.4 billion Homo sapiens living on Earth, the million dollar question is why would the US government go to such great lengths to cover up the UFO phenomenon?
To know the answer you must travel with me back in time, 406 years to be precise. It was a cold, cloudless night a 46-year-old man standing alone on the roof was observing the planet Jupiter through a rudimentary telescope he had constructed.
Something is just not right, he wondered.
