A UFO at Roswell
Facts: On July 2, 1947 something large and silver plowed into the desert near Roswell, New Mexico; many witnesses corroborate this fact, but what it was, is as of yet unknown. The United States military claims it was an experimental research balloon, but conspiracy theorists claim it was something more extraterrestrial. The military took immediate interests in the object and its wreckage and flew a team out to clean up the mess salvage every bit of evidence that the crash had every happened. The men were told not to talk to the press, but before the order could reach everyone, a press release from the government announced that a “flying disc” had been found.
The UFO saga began a few days earlier when a businessman and aviator named Kenneth Arnold reported chasing “bobbing and weaving” objects with his private plane. He described the objects as “saucer-shaped”; the Air Force said that what Arnold had pursued was a “mirage”.
Unanswered Questions: Many conspiracy theorists think something of significance happened near Roswell, New Mexico simply by its omission in military documents. The Air Force keeps a record of all supposed UFO sightings and their scientific explanations in what’ called the “Blue Book” files. Mysteriously missing is the incident at Roswell. Hundreds of documents were obtained via the Freedom of Information Act, including the Majestic-12 documents, although many have yet to be authenticated. Hundreds of witnesses have also been interviewed in the years since the crash that claim to have seen the crash firsthand or debris from the crash, but many of these “witnesses” seem to have been repeating the same stories of others and most of their accounts don’t hold water. There are only a handful of actual, authenticated witnesses.
Ideas: There was also a supposed elite team of intelligence officers nicknames the Majestic-12 that researched and recorded the findings at Roswell, and theorists claim it is the proof that we are not alone. Supposedly the Majestic-12 Documents report finding “extraterrestrial biological entities” two miles from the crash site. According to some accounts, two of the aliens were still alive and one even put up a struggle. Both were taken back to Area 51 for further research. The only problem is that the Majestic-12 documents have never been authenticated.
Conspire.com Judgment: There is a lot of complex and oftentimes misleading “evidence” relating to the UFOs at Roswell conspiracy theory. We at Conspire.com believe there may be something to the idea the government and US military is withholding information, although we’re not sure that it relates to a UFO. The bottom line is that the mystery of the crash at Roswell has never been satisfactorily explained, so we’re leaving this one open for further investigation in the hopes that ne and concrete evidence will emerge in the future.
