    In the contract agreement...the US Army authorized $750,000 (and up to $1 million over time if needed) to be spent for testing and evaluation of supposedly novel “metamaterials” that were provided to them by a very controversial company. ... In 1996, Art Bell...received an anonymously mailed package that included a letter and a trove of metal parts and layered material which later became known as “Art’s Parts.” The appearance of the items sent to Art is not all that impressive, but the story accompanying them was certainly something. The writer claimed that the items were from the Roswell, NM UFO...

    Alex McCall and his daughter were on holiday in Maine, USA, when an unidentified object the shape of a Tic-Tac sped over the park and then vanished into the clouds. Two top gun pilots have been filmed giving chase to a UFO over a park full of tourists. Alex McCall was with his school teacher daughter and grandchildren when the military jets blasted across the skies at high speed. But they then looked up to see the unidentified flying object in front of them. Alex's daughter was able to film the eerie moment on her iPhone as they roared over...

    Transcript Excerpt #1: Things have changed. Now people are looking at [something real]. Are they a threat militarily, what kinds of sensors do we have, what kind of metrics do we have? We now have frame by frame an analysis of these objects. These objects travel between mach 5 and mach 20 . That's 20 times the speed of sound. These objects can zigzag and we can measure the g-force inside this object. The g-forces are several hundred times the force of other words any living person's bones would be crushed by these objects so they're probably drones of...

    During an interview with Good Morning Britain, Peake, who spent more than six months on the International Space Station, was asked about the videos, which The Pentagon declassified recently. While Peake didn’t have a solid answer, he shared some theories he had heard with the audience. “I don’t think it’s a development of any state nation or non-state organization at all. I think it’s quite remarkable when you see the video footage. It does seem extraordinary as to what these machines are capable of.” One video shows a small object speeding past a military pilot, while another shows triangles glowing...
  • China Has ‘Swarm’ Ambitions With New Drone Carrier

    06/11/2022 10:04:59 PM PDT · by RomanSoldier19 · 29 replies ^ | 8 June 2022 | Didier Lauras
    Officially it is just a research vessel, but China's newly unveiled drone carrier is a clear sign Beijing is rushing to deploy an autonomous swarm of unmanned devices in its push for military supremacy in the Pacific Ocean. State media last month showed the launching of the Zhu Hai Yun – "Zhu Hai Cloud" – capable of transporting an unspecified number of flying drones as well as surface and submarine craft, and operating autonomously thanks to artificial intelligence. The 89-metre (292-foot) ship would be operational by year-end with a top speed of 18 knots, vastly increasing China's surveillance potential...

    Warships from the U.S. Navy sailing off the coast of California in 2019 were swarmed by drones from a nearby Hong Kong cargo ship on multiple occasions, the Navy has revealed. The incidents were all reported between March 30, 2019 and July 30, 2019. Seven different vessels were involved. One of the warships reported in their official memo that the Hong Kong ship was observing them, noting: 'MV Bass Strait likely using UAVs (unidentified aerial vehicles) to conduct surveillance on US Naval Forces'.

    The team will gather data on "events in the sky that cannot be identified as aircraft or known natural phenomena -- from a scientific perspective," NASA said it was interested in UAPs from a security and safety perspective. There was no evidence UAPs are extraterrestrial in origin, NASA added. The team will be led by astrophysicist David Spergel, who is president of the Simons Foundation in New York City. NASA said the limited number of observations of UAPs made it difficult to draw scientific conclusions about the nature of such events. A first step for the team would be to...

    He warned scientists to use caution in using the practice of METI, or “Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence” for fear it could provoke an alien invasion. But Caballero conceded that the odds of extraterrestrials wiping out the human species is about the same as the planet being destroyed by a “global catastrophe asteroid.” He wrote that such an event takes place once every 100 million years, so humans are in all likelihood safe for the time being.

    The conclusion of the US congressional hearing [last week] on UAPs, formerly known as UFOs, is an opportunity to take stock of where matters stand on a question that has captivated humankind for centuries: Have we been visited by aliens...? *snip* There do seem to be vehicles (“phenomena”?) going many times faster than US military craft, stopping and turning on a dime, showing no visible signs of propulsion and operating in ways that appear to violate standard understandings of aerodynamics. The evidence is from multiple sensor sources, including photography, and supported by numerous eyewitness accounts. The US government is coy...

    As Congress prepares to hold the first public hearing on UFOs in half a century, the Pentagon and intelligence agencies are feuding internally over how much to cooperate with demands to investigate and share what they know, according to current and former national security officials. Pentagon officials are under increasing pressure to carry out Congress’ recent mandate to establish a permanent effort to coordinate research into reports of highly advanced aircraft of unknown origin intruding into protected airspace. *snip* But there is a tug of war among competing factions inside the national security bureaucracy that will make it difficult for...
  • NASA to launch naked pictures of humans to space in hope of ‘attracting aliens’ (from sublime to ridiculous)

    NASA scientists plan to launch pictures of naked humans into space in the hope of luring aliens to us. The depictions will also include an invitation to respond should an intelligent alien race find the space nudes. Fortunately, the hypothetical aliens shouldn’t be too shocked by the unsolicited nudes. The pictures aren’t graphic photographs of naked humans but a drawing of a naked man and a woman next to a depiction of DNA. The man and woman are waving in an attempt to look more inviting.
  • Rep. Tim Burchett on UFO findings: ‘It’s a bogus cover-up’ (by the Pentagon)

    Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.) believes the Pentagon knows more than what they’re saying following the latest secret briefings on UFOs. “There’s an arrogance in government at that level that we cannot handle what’s going on out there,” Burchett said Monday as a guest of News Nation’s “On Balance with Leland Vittert.” “It’s a bogus cover-up. It doesn’t fit and it’s about power and control,” he continued. Burchett has joined lawmakers on both sides of the aisle seeking to apply pressure on members of the Senate Intelligence and Armed Services committees after disappointment in their latest data collection efforts. *snip* “I...

    The truth is out there — or at least that’s what researchers at NASA and the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute are hoping. While much of the SETI Institute’s research involves scanning space for light and radio signals as indicators of extraterrestrial life, it’s also looking for bigger objects — and specifically alien megastructures. “[It’s] essentially any artificial structure built by an intelligent civilization perhaps for energy harvesting purposes,” Ann Marie Cody, a researcher scientist at NASA Ames and the SETI Institute, told Vice in a fascinating new interview. The method that Cody and her colleagues employ to try...

    Just before the New Year, the Pentagon established a new office that will study UFOs — or unidentified aerial phenomena, as they’re now known — and report its findings to Congress. However, the move — the most significant UFO legislation ever passed — is contentious to many in the UFO community, reports NBC News. “This is a subject with a provable history of secrecy, and anything that lacks a new openness about the information is subject to more, possibly inappropriate control,” Ron James, a spokesperson for the Mutual UFO Network, which bills itself as “the oldest and largest UFO organization...
  • Incredible video shows 12 UFOs ‘flying in formation’ as pilot exclaims ‘that is some weird s**t’

    12/07/2021 12:23:33 PM PST · by BenLurkin · 55 replies
    A VIDEO shot from an airliner cockpit has emerged showing what appears to be a fleet of 12 UFOs flying in formation. The pilot who shot the footage can be heard reacting in astonishment to the eerie lights that appeared and then vanished in clouds above the Pacific Ocean. At first, nine lights are visible in the video which then becomes 12 lights moving in formation. The closest UFO disappears before three more objects reappear outside of the group. It is possible that jets could be carrying out wargames because the footage was shot in the hotly contested South China...

    Psychology Today ^ | November 29, 2021
    Assuming that both UAPs and their shocking behaviors are real (it’s still possible mundane explanations might emerge), there are two possibilities regarding the science underlying the phenomena: The objects either represent exciting extensions of known science (such as directed energy physics) or exploit features of exotic unknown science (such as faster-than-light travel through gravitational worm holes). And the first branch of known science I'll discuss is psychology...because part of our difficulty understanding UAP's might have more to do with our own biases and expectations, than with the phenomena themselves....But what if UAP's are unlike anything we might build, possessing no...

    In a video posted on November 13, comedian Rémi Gaillard reveals the deception. The story has been put together and driven by him. The curious light beam was in fact a drone equipped with a diode, and the witnesses of the accomplices ready to relay the information. Her hoax was staged with a meteorologist from Gard, attesting to the seriousness of the phenomenon observed in the sky, and a horse breeder from Hérault, telling TF1 journalists her amazement at the unidentified flying object. "I had to tell the worst story of my life," she confided. Rémi Gaillard affirms that he...
