The Truth?: UFO's flown by the military - no aliens to be seen

So here is the post-9/11 script - one that will be played out unless enough people are informed and the plan can be foiled because they will be unable to fool a sufficient number of citizens and leaders:

After a period of terrorism - a period during which the detonation of nuclear devices will be threatened and possibly actuated, thus justifying expanding the weaponization of space - an effort will ramp up to present the public with information about a threat from outer space. Not just asteroids hitting the Earth, but other threats. An extraterrestrial threat.

Space holographic deception technologies are in place, tested and ready to fire.

And the Big Media is a pawn, now taking dictation from the right hand of the king.

I know this all sounds like science fiction. Absurd. Impossible. Just like 9/11 would have sounded before 9/11. But the unthinkable happened and may happen again, unless we are vigilant.

The Redshoes and the UFO
By John Stockley.

The Cyclotron is developed (1930)

The cyclotron is developed by American physicist Ernest Orlando Lawrence.

A cyclotron is a circular particle accelerator in which charged subatomic particles are accelerated spirally outward in a magnetic field.

It can generate energies up to tens of millions of electron volts.

Lawrence will win a 1939 Nobel Prize for development of the cyclotron.

From: www.spacetoday.org

The cyclotron could possibly be used to a.) Power some sort of space vehicle b.) Display a plasma ball in the skies which would look and act in a very similar fashion to those objects which appear on film as UFO's.

Radioastronomy founded (1931)

Bell Telephone Laboratories engineer Karl Jansky, looking for the cause of radio static, is the first person to tune in radio waves coming from somewhere in the sky. He founds radioastronomy by detecting radio waves coming from the center of our Milky Way galaxy.

Neutron and antimatter discovered (1932)

British physicist James Chadwick discovers the neutron. 

He will win a 1935 Nobel Prize for his discovery.

The first bit of antimatter, the positron or antielectron, is uncovered by American physicist Carl David Anderson. 

He will win a 1936 Nobel Prize for his discovery.

The British Interplanetary Society founded (1933)

Founded in 1933, The British Interplanetary Society (BIS) is the world's longest established organisation devoted solely to supporting and promoting the exploration of space and astronautics.
 
The BIS is financially independent, has charitable status and obtains its main income from a worldwide membership. The Society's headquarters are situated in central London.

The Nazi Flying Saucer (1934)

Many are convinced that mystics and the gifted scientists and engineers of Germany combined to produce flying saucers shortly before WW2.

Theorists also believe that other nations, headed by the British, have used captured German technology to build their own flying machines.

Such programs have been kept extremely secret and those governments and organisations involved have dispersed disinformation and filled people's heads with stories of the back-engineering of interstellar alien space ships, UFO abductions and flying saucer crashes.

There are piles of reports of British and US pilots being tracked by fireballs which danced around their aircraft while driving their electronics systems crazy.

History of German saucer development

The Thule Society 1917

The Thule Society was formed by three men in 1917. Located in Munich, it was a melting pot of many orders. In 1921 Hitler was engaged as an orator and, inspired by the beliefs of the Thule Society, his plan for a thousand year Reich was born.

The Vril Society 1919

Some groups broke away. One became the Vril Society formed in 1919. This group included mediums and experts on ancient philosophies and scripts, particularly those of the Sumerians and Babylonians. There were also two scientists who were well-versed in alternative energies. It was their aim to communicate with luminaries from the past and even to travel in time.

The Time Machine 1922-24

From these meetings, the group hatched a bizarre plan to use their knowledge to build a time machine. This was intended to transport them to the far reaches of the universe and time and to bring them face to face with the Gods themselves

Experiments with the machine lasted about two years and what eventuated is unknown. What is held as fact however is that the study formed the basis for the development of the Vril Levitation Power Unit. 

Many believe the machine was thoroughly tested in 1924, apparently at a German Messer Schmitt factory.

Rudolph Hess

Rudolph Hess was a member of the Thule society and encouraged German scientists to continue their studies into new technologies.

Viktor Schauberger

Viktor Schauberger, an inventor, was believed to be associated with these esoteric mystic groups. He developed many flying prototypes based on the theory of levitation. The cornerstones of his studies were electro gravitational and tachometric power, harmonic resonance and harmonic proportions.

Schauberger was said to have used secret Pythagorean mathematical formulae, held by the Knights Templar, to develop his understanding of implosion. 

Implosion is the use of the potential of the inner universe within the outer universe. He was astounded at how useful this can be to generate clean and unlimited power. The secrets also stirred his fascination with the vibrations of the universe.

Studies also led to the discovery of anti matter and it's applications in beating the forces of gravity.

Hitler sought Schauberger and directed him to brief his men on his discoveries.

The Horten brothers and the flying wing

Many flying-wing designs date back to German designs, such as those of the Horten brothers in the 1930s. 

One of the largest supersonic delta aircraft of this earlier period was the ill-fated Valkyrie bomber.

The Vril Society and its first flying disc - 1934

In mid-1934, the Vril Society developed its first flying disc shaped aircraft to be propelled by anti gravity.

The craft, known as the RFC 1, was designed by a Dr Schuman and another German engineer. 

A German film was produced by the German National Film Company about space travel called 'The First Woman on the Moon'. The first spacerocket was then built with the money by a team led by Von Braun.

By the end of 1934, the Vril society tested the RFC 2 round aircraft built with improved propulsion system and magnetic impulse steering. The contours blurred when the craft accelerated and it had bright lights which changed colour determined by the ships power.

It was fours years later when the Germans introduced jet powered aircraft.

The SS, and its newly formed Black Sun Society, showed interest in the work of the Vril society and began researching alternative energy. This was primarily so they could become independent of the worlds oil suppliers. The research arm of the organisation was named SS E4.

SS E4 quickly developed their own aircraft.

First radio-telescope constructed (1937)

Amateur radio operator Grote Reber of Wheaton, Illinois, becomes the father of the radiotelescope by building a 31-ft. dish antenna in his backyard and using it to uncover the first discrete radio sources beyond Earth and mapping the spread of natural radio signals across the Milky Way.

From: http://www.spacetoday.org

British space program underway (1939)

The British Space Program was well underway during World War 2 with men such as Arthur C. Clarke and H.E Ross launching an in-depth study of the possibility of moon landings.

Arthur C. Clarke is best known for his collaboration with Stanley Kubrick on the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. 

The British undertook intensive rocket testing at a huge range in South Australia, beginning in about 1946.

The range was named Woomera and it is possible that the studies launched there led to manned spaced travel in years much earlier than we have been led to believe.

The RFC-4/Hanebu 1 ( 1939)

Toward the end of 1938 the RFC-4, a propeller driven, round aircraft was developed by the Germans specifically to test how disk shaped objects behave in flight.

The RFC5, or Haunebu 1, was built in 1939 measuring a massive 65 feet across. It made its maiden flight in August.

At the end of 1940 an RFC2 was deployed and used for reconnaissance.

There were also sightings of the Haunebu 2 (RFC 6). This disked shaped craft measured 26m-36m across and between 9 and 11 metres high.

U.S Navy designs and constructs saucer (1942)

During the Second World War the United States was looking desperately for anything that could give its fighter pilots an edge in combat.

So in 1942 the Navy ordered the construction of an experimental aircraft designated the XF5U-1: A flying saucer.

In the years before the war an aeronautics engineer named Charles Zimmerman became fascinated with the possibilities offered by an aircraft designed like a thin disc. 

Zimmerman, who worked for the National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics, tested a series of unmanned models that eventually led to this design.

The shape, commonly referred to at the time as a "flying flapjack," would allow an aircraft to both perform well at high speeds by producing very little drag, and at low speeds, by resisting a stall.

Most traditional aircraft designs have to make a trade off: Long wings let an airplane land and take off at very low speeds.

This means shorter runways and greater payloads.

As the speed increases, though, long wings create too much resistance to the air and waste power.

That's why modern jet fighters have very short, stubby wings. They can go very fast, but they are difficult to land because if you fly them too slow they will not produce enough lift to keep the plane in the air (this is called a stall) and crash.

Some modern jets, like the United State's F111 and F14 solve this problem by using a "swing wing" that could be changed from short and swept back to long and square depending on what the plane was trying to do. Zimmerman's design promised to do the same thing without the mechanical complexities associated with moving the wing in flight.

The idea was tested with a manned prototype called the V-173. The V-173 made over 100 successful flights, so two prototypes of a fighter, the XF5U1, were built.

Nazi moon landing? (1942)

As early as 1942, the rumours go, the Nazis landed on the moon with the aid of giant rocket saucers.

Upon landing on the moon, the Nazi's quickly began building underground bases.

The colonization continued through the forties with more people, raw materials, and robots were ferried up in the giant saucers.

From: Conspiracy Theories by David Southwell and Sean Twist

The Vril 1 ( 1942)

In July 1941 a vertical take-off, jet propelled, gyroscopic air craft was designed by the Germans.

Tests began at the end of 1942 but the prototype had serious design faults.

In the winter of 1942, the Vril 1 (301) was tested at the Vril airfield. It was a single-seater with an overall length of 36 feet. It also had three guns protruding from the hull.

This gave rise to the development of aircraft most commonly recognised as UFO's. These included craft known as the 'Bolenzo', the 'Shreiber' and the 'Methe'.

Work on the 'discus' (rather than 'saucer') shaped RFC 7t began in 1942. On its completion the team of scientists were happy that they had designed a reliable and functional light aircraft.

The SS apparently also had plans to create a massive Haunebu Space Craft with a diameter of over 400 feet.

There were also reports that they were successfully testing the Haunebu 3 which had a length of 230ft.

These were to be mother-ships capable of transporting many smaller Haunebu.

In December 1942 over France, a Royal Air Force pilot in a Hurricane interceptor saw two lights shooting from near the ground toward his 7,000-foot cruising altitude. 

At first he took the lights to be tracer fire (from enemy positions). But when they ceased ascending and followed him, mimicking every evasive maneuver he made, the pilot realized they were under someone's intelligent control. The lights, which kept an even distance from each other all the while, pursued him for some miles.

Germans plan space trip (1944)

On January 3 and 4, 1944, a meeting is believed to have taken place between Hitler and Hemmler to discuss the Vril Society and their proposition to build a tunnel which would be independent of the speed of light and to project a spaceship through it and toward the Alderbaran star system.

It is claimed by some that there was in fact a successful trip in time in which Germans were transported within their craft to the days of Babylon and were greeted as the 'White Gods' of ancient Sumerian and Babylonian ancient legends.

Operation Alderbaran (1944)

The Vril society met in 1943 and discussed 'Operation Alderbaran'. 

Mystics had received communications containing information about a planetary system inhabited by the Gods. These apparently also included maps of distant landscapes. 

The Vril and Thule societies believed the Alderbaran solar-system to be sixty eight light years away from earth and sun.

Alderbaran has two inhabited planets circling it. 

The two together make up the Sumerian Empire.

WW2 - Reports grow of German 'foo-fighter' sightings (1944)

Foo Fighters were levitating lighted globes, perhaps a metre in diameter, which silently paced Allied and Nazi fighters and bombers during WWII.

They were never officially explained.

A common complaint of airmen was that they usually experienced ignition problems at the time of these Foo Fighter encounters.

Harry S Truman commissioned General Jimmy Doolittle to report on the German Flying Fire Balls, or 'Foo Fighters' during World War II. This officer reported back to Truman that the Foo Fighters were real, were not German craft, and were most likely of extraterrestrial origin.

Former pilot Wendelle Stevens says that the foo fighters could not be shot down or evaded by aircraft. The Foo Fighters mimicked the movements of fighter planes and the Air Force pilots could not shake them. Stevens says that reports of the Foo Fighters began in 1942.

The name Foo Fighter is thought to have come from a little remembered cartoon character named Smokey Stover who used to declare, "Where there's foo, there's fire."

Someone called these balls of light "Foo Fighters" and the name stuck (American airmen also called these balls of light 'Kraut Balls'). In 1996 the grunge music star, David Grohl, was so fascinated with Foo Fighters mystery that he decided to name his band after them.

On September 29, 1944, at 10:45 a.m., a test pilot was trying out a new Messerschmitt jet, ME 262 Schwalbe, when two luminous points situated on his right suddenly caught his attention.  

He shot at full speed in that direction and found himself face to face with a cylindrical object, more than three hundred feet long with some openings along its side, and fitted with long antennae placed in front up to about halfway along its length. 

Having approached within about 1,500 feet of the craft the pilot was amazed to see that it was moving at a speed of more than 1,200 m.p.h.

The Foo Fighter was actually an unmanned probe, it's mission to fly along side enemy aircraft and reek havoc on the planes navigation and communication equipment. 

The Germans knew the craft by the German name for tortoise due to the crafts tortoise like appearance when it was on the ground.

In November 1944, USAF pilot, Lt. Schlater claimed to have seen dancing, reddish balls of fire in the vicinity of his fuselage.

On December 14, 1944, Foo fighters became world news when a Reuters report on the phenomenon was published in the NY times.

In UFO Document, by Don Berliner, Whitley Strieber describes one encounter as follows:

1944: a clear afternoon over Northern Italy, hard light, empty sky. American bombers are coming in high over Po valley, on a mission to attack German defensive positions.

As the German fighters ascend, the pilots notice glowing balls of light pacing them just off their wing-tips. Meanwhile, the American flyers above see the same thing- balls of light darting among their formations.

Pilots from both sides see watch the objects warily. All assume they are some sort of secret weapon on tracking device.

Germans build Andromeda Machine (1944)

At the end of the war the SS constructed the Andromeda Machine, a UFO space station. 

It employed the Vril Gravitation System.

Nazis have two disks: CIA agent (1944)

Ex CIA agent, Virgil Armstrong, has stated that toward the end of World War 2, Hitler and the SS were in possession of at least two fully operational Hannebu 'flying saucers'. 

One was capable of speeds up to 1,200 miles per hour, ninety degree turns and vertical take-off. Armstrong said that the other craft was capable of twice that speed and that it also had laser guns attached to the underside and that they were capable of piercing four feet of armor.

The nuclear reactor is invented (1944)

Italian-born American physicist Enrico Fermi achieves the first controlled artificial nuclear chain reaction in his atomic pile in a squash court at the University of Chicago. He already had won a 1938 Nobel Prize for his work on artificial radioactivity caused by neutron bombardment. The fermi, a unit of length, is named in his honor.

Japanese and German moon landing? (January 1945)

Germany kept close ties with its allies during WW2 sharing its advances in weaponry with Italy and Japan.

A Japanese-German team, numbering in the hundreds, flew to the Moon in one of their giant saucers. They survived a near crash-landing.

From: Conspiracy Theories by David Southwell and Sean Twist

The V7 (1945)

On April 17, 1945, it was reported to Hitler that another aircraft, the V7, was tested in the skies above the Baltic. The V7 was a supersonic helicopter with 12 BMW turbo engines. 

It was powered by unconventional sources and on it's second flight obtained the height of 80,000feet.3qa4

There is more than enough evidence to conclude that they secreted literally thousands of hard-core Nazi's into the USA, shuffling them into the various levels of the military industrial intelligence fraternity which the Rockefellers essentially owned and operated, while at the same time sponsoring US Presidents who would faithfully remove power from Congress [via vetoes, executive orders, the appointing rather than electing of executive branch personnel, and the creation of several secret agencies which operated under security classifications that even the most powerful Congressional overseers were forbidden from acquiring].

May 7, 1945: Germans surrender, War in Europe ends.

British grab German disks (1945)

Three huge top secret trains came out of Germany and Austria after the Brits went into the underground redoubts of the Nazis in Austria, the Black Forest and Thuringia at the end of the war in 1945.

They were packed and loaded by the British secret service.

One of the trains was 8 miles long and included 655 cars. 

The trains took the stuff, some of which was too large to fit in box cars and had to be covered by tarpaulins, to the coast of Brittany (France).

German disks shipped to Canada

There the objects were loaded on board ships, taken through the Panama Canal up the coast to Vancouver, B.C., and from there by train 100 miles inland to the newly constructed surface facility of the A. V. Roe Company. 

150 pre-fab factory buildings were sent from England to the same site. By 1947 it was dug completely underground.

The Brits also grabbed the disk engineers, including Herr Miethe (later traced to the employment of A.V. Roe.... Alien Vehicle Research Organization ).

The A.V Roe company took over the research and development of the wingless jet powered saucer craft.

Just like the Nazi Werner von Braun and his Nazi cohort scientists were excused for their mistreatment of assembly line slaves and invited to partake in America's rocket program, saucer scientists like Herr Miethe and his Nazi cohort scientists were invited and taken to work for A.V. Roe in the compound outside Vancouver.

Americans grab German rocket scientists (May 1945)

On 15 August 1945, US President Harry Truman, gave an executive order and in March of 1946 the collection of German materials relating to their study of new technology began. 

The operation, known as 'Paper Clip' was a vehicle to secrete German scientists into the United States to develop 'miracle weapons systems'. This group was headed by Werner Von Braun.

Three weeks later, the U.S. went to Peenemunde to nab the V-2s and the scientists.

The German rocket team surrendered on May 2, 1945.

The team from Peenemunde, including Werner von Braun, succombed to Allied forces.

They had built the V-2 that was used to bomb London, and were planning a two-stage rocket that could bomb New York.

Von Braun was the man behind the first US satellite, Explorer 1, launched on January 1, 1958 and the moon program was basically founded on the research of the Nazi scientist.

Von Braun was a former pupil of Germanys great space pioneer, Dr. Herman Orberth.

Orberth, considered one of the three fathers of the space-age, is reported to have endorsed the suggestion of alien liaison. 

'We cannot take the credit for our record advancement in certain scientific fields alone; we have been helped he is quoted as saying. When asked, "by whom", he simply replied, "the people of other worlds".

In 1954, Orberth wrote, "It is my thesis that UFO's are spaceships from another solar-system. I think that they are probably manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries. They are probably using Mars or another planet as a way station.

Von Braun once noted that Orberth " has always been twenty to forty years ahead of the rest of us."

In 1955, Von Braun invited Dr Orberth to the United States where he worked on rockets with the Army Ballistic Missile Agency and later with NASA.

The knowledge of Orberth and Von Werner raised the question..."Could the Nazi's have reached the moon prior to the United States?

There are even reports of Nazi 'space' bases on the moon...and also of massive Nazi bases under the mountains of Neu Schwabenland, Antarctica...

Japanese receive German saucer (July 1945)

Germany kept close ties with its allies during WW2 sharing its advances in weaponry with Italy and Japan.

At the end of the War, a German U-Boat reportedly delivered a spherical wingless flying machine to Japanese research and development units.

Working under German instructions, the Japanese constructed the device without knowing how it worked. The machine apparently roared off by itself in a burst of flame and was never recovered.

Australian desert ideal for atomic experiments (Feb 15, 1946)

Australia's vast unpopulated desert spaces provide an ideal setting for Britain to carry out full-scale atomic experiments according to some British opinion.

The Daily Mail newspaper said in an editorial that the bombing of Hiroshima emphasised the need for the development of atomic energy within the British Empire.

England is too small and overcrowded for full scale testing to be carried out without the threat of widespread disaster in the event of an accident.

The prospect of vast stores of uranium in Australia made it even more obviously the best place for this kind of experiment.

From: Chronicle of the 20th Century. Penguin

On November 24, 1946 newspapers reported that the Australian Government planned to build a rocket-testing range in South Australia. Cabinet had come to an arrangement with Britain, which considered the proposed site, Mt Eba, about 200 miles north-west of Port Augusta, to be ideal for the tests.

It was believed that Britain would carry out design and research work on rockets and pilotless aircraft and ship them to Australia to be tested on the range.

From: Chronicle of the 20th Century. Penguin

The north-west of South Australia was transformed into a vast rocket range spanning 130 000 square kilometres (the size of England).

For 30 years Woomera functioned as the support and residential base for the largest overland rocket range in the Western world.

Man carrying rocket proposed by British (December 23, 1946)

R.A. Smith and H.E. Ross submit a British Interplanetary Society proposal for a "Man-carrying V-2" to the Ministry of Supply.

Ministry turns down idea.

Below is H.E. Ross' drawing of the BIS design for a manned sub-orbital flight on a converted German V2. A passenger is visible in a pressure cabin located in the nose of the rocket.

Germans move disks to Arctic (1947)

At the end of the war there were many stories of what became of the Nazi's purported supply of flying disks. 

One rumor was that a disk had been dumped at the bottom of an Austrian lake. 

The most popular theory was that they had been secreted to remote regions in South America and, more particularly, Antarctica. 

Some maintain that there is a German UFO base in the Arctic.

Many believe that massive German u-boats transported many of the German craft to a secret base in the Antarctic.

There were 30 missing German submarines that came from the Baltic area at the end of the war.

They had a snorkel system which allowed them to stay under water for extended periods of up to weeks at a time.

It is theorized that these U-Boats could have been used to move the technology out of Germany.

That is when the US military kicked into action sending Admiral Byrd in his men to the frozen north.

Americans go after German disks in Arctic (1947)

The allies, under Admiral Bird, mounted an invasion of the Antarctic. He was said to have been given eight months and unlimited funding to complete the exercise.

Secretary of the US Navy James Forrestal sent a naval task force to Antarctic including Admiral Nimitz, Admiral Krusen and Admiral Byrd, called "Operation Highjump". 

It was touted to be an expedition to find "coal deposits" and other valuable resources, but in actuality they were trying to find the underground base of the Nazis in Neuschwabenlandt.

The nazis had done a very detailed study of the Antarctic and were alleged to have built an underground base there.

When Byrd's men went to the Antarctic they found plenty of magnetic anomalies, all of which were classified top secret when he got back.

It has been speculated that this anomaly may be an entrance to a large hollow place.

The task force of over forty ships, included the flagship "Mount Olympus", the aircraft carrier "Philipine Sea", the seaplane tender "Pine Sea", the submarine "Senate", the destroyer "Bronson", the ice breaker "Northwind", and other tanker and supply ships.

An armed contingent of 1400 sailors, and three dog sled teams were also on board.

The expedition was filmed by the Navy and brought to Hollywood to be made into a commercial film called "The Secret Land".

It was narrated by Hollywood actor Robert Montgomery (Naval reserve Officer) . 

There were three divisions of Operation High Jump: one land group with tractors, explosives, and plenty of equipment to refurbish "Little America", and make an airstrip to land the six R-4D's (DC-3's), and two seaplane groups.

The R4-D's were fitted with jet-assist takeoff  bottles (JATO) in order to takeoff from the short runway of the aircraft carrier "Philipine Sea".

They also were fitted with large skis for landing on the ice field prepared for them.

The skis were specially fitted at three inches above the surface of the carrier deck.

When landing on the ice at "Little America" the three inches of tire in contact with the snow and ice provided just enough and not too much drag for a smooth landing.

Admiral Byrd's team of six R4-D's were fitted with the super secret "Trimetricon" spy cameras and each plane was trailing a magnetometer.

They flew over as much of the continent as they could in the short three month "summer" period, mapping and recording magnetic data.

Magnetometers show anomalies in the Earth's magnetism, i.e. if there is a "hollow" place under the surface ice or ground, it will show up on the meter. 

On the last of many "mapping" flights where all six planes went out, each on certain pre-ordained paths to film and "measure" with magnetometers, Admiral Byrd's plane returned three hours late. 

It was stated that he had "lost an engine" and had had to throw everything overboard except the films themselves and the results of magnetometer readings in order to maintain altitude long enough to return to Little America.

It has been theorised Byrd met with a contingent of nazis.

Admiral Bird later explained that in the event of another world war we would be up against aircraft that can travel from pole to pole.

The task force came steaming back with their data which then became classified "top secret".

Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal retired and started to "talk".

He was put in Bethesda Naval Hospital psychiatric ward where he was prevented from seeing or talking to anyone, including his wife.

After a short while Forrestal hung himself with a bed sheet after jumping out of a window.

It was ruled a suicide.

After serving as a pilot during the war, UFO researcher Wendelle Stevens was assigned to a base in Alaska were he debriefed pilots who regularly sighted disks.

Crews apparently saw an object on the ice pack.

They also described one as rising from the water and flying away.

Various photographs were taken but films locked away and sent to Anders AFB.

Carol Rosin

Dr Carol Rosin was the first female corporate manager of Fairchild Industries and was spokesperson for Werner von Braun in his later years.

She founded the Institute for Security and Cooperation in Outer Space in Washington, DC, and has testified before Congress on many occasions about space-based weapons.

Von Braun revealed to Dr Rosin a plan to justify weapons in space, based on hoaxing first, a Russian threat, then a terrorist threat, an asteroid threat, then finally an extraterrestrial threat.

(Rosin was also present at meetings in the 1970's when the scenario for the Gulf War of the 1990's was planned.)

This really leads us to a big question. 

Has the alien threat and the UFO craze been solely a tool used and created by the powers that be?

The following is part of an essay by Dr. Steven Greer, director of the Disclosure Project.

Dr. Rosin gave a testimony to Disclosure before 9/11.

......As Wernher von Braun related to Dr. Carol Rosin....a maniacal machine - the military, industrial, intelligence, laboratory complex - would go from Cold War, to Rogue Nations, to Global Terrorism (the stage we find ourselves at today), to the ultimate trump card: A hoaxed threat from space.

To justify eventually spending trillions of dollars on space weapons, the world would be deceived about a threat from outer space, thus uniting the world in fear, in militarism, and in war.

Since 1992 I have seen this script unveiled to me by at least a dozen well-placed insiders.

Of course, initially I laughed, thinking this just too absurd and far-fetched.

And yet others told me explicitly that things that looked like UFOs but that are built and under the control of deeply secretive 'black' projects, were being used to simulate - hoax - ET-appearing events, including some abductions and cattle mutilations, to sow the early seeds of cultural fear regarding life in outer space.

And that at some point after global terrorism, events would unfold that would utilize the now-revealed Alien Reproduction Vehicles (ARVs, or reversed-engineered UFOs made by humans by studying actual ET craft - see the book "Disclosure" by the same author) to hoax an attack on Earth.

Like the movie "Independence Day", an attempt to unite the world through militarism would unfold using ET as the new cosmic scapegoat.

None of this is new to me or other insiders.

The report from Iron Mountain, NY, written in the 1960s, described the need to demonize life in outer space so we could have a new enemy.

An enemy off-planet that could unite humans (in fear and war) and that would prove to be the ultimate prop for the trillion dollar military industrial complex that conservative Republican President and five star general Eisenhower warned us about in 1961 (no one was listening then, either...).

So here is the post-9/11 script -

After a period of terrorism - a period during which the detonation of nuclear devices will be threatened and possibly actuated, thus justifying expanding the weaponization of space - an effort will ramp up to present the public with information about a threat from outer space. Not just asteroids hitting the Earth, but other threats. An extraterrestrial threat.

Over the past 40 years, UFOlogy, as it is called, combined with a mighty media machine, has increasingly demonized ETs via fearsome movies like "Independence Day", and pseudo-science that presents alien kidnappings and abuse as a fact (in some circles) of modern life

That some humans have had contact with ETs I have no doubt; that the real ET contact has been subsumed in an ocean of hoaxed accounts I am certain.

That is, real ET events are seldom reported out to the public. The Machine ensures that the hoaxed, frightening and intrinsically xenophobic accounts are the ones seen and read by millions. This mental conditioning to fear ET has been subtly reinforced for decades, in preparation for future deceptions. Deceptions that will make 9/11 look trivial.

I write this now because I have recently been contacted by several highly placed media and intelligence sources that have made it clear to me that hoaxed events and story-lines are imminent that will attempt to further ramp up the fear machine regarding UFOs and ETs. After all, to have an enemy, you must make the people hate and fear a person, a group of people, or in this case an entire category of beings.

To be clear: the maniacal covert programs controlling UFO secrecy, ARVs and related technologies - including those technologies that can simulate ET events, ET abductions and the like - plan to hijack Disclosure, spin it into the fire of fear, and roll out events that will eventually present ETs as a new enemy. Do not be deceived.

This hogwash, already the stuff of countless books, videos, movies, documentaries and the like, will attempt to glom onto the facts, evidence and first-hand insider testimony of The Disclosure Project, and on its coattails, deliver to the world the cosmic deception that falsely portrays ETs as a threat from space. Do not be deceived.

By commingling fact with fiction, and by hoaxing UFO events that can look terrifying, the Plan is to eventually create a new, sustainable, off-planet enemy. And who will be the wiser?

You will. Because now you know that after 60 years, trillions of dollars and the best scientific minds in the world pressed into action, a secretive, shadowy group - a government within the government and at once fully outside the government as we know it - has mastered the technologies, the art of deception, and the capability to launch an attack on Earth and make it look like ETs did it.

In 1997, I brought a man to Washington to brief members of Congress and others about this plan.

Our entire team at the time met this man. He had been present at planning sessions when ARVs - things built by Lockheed, Northrup, et al, and housed in secretive locations around the world - would be used to simulate an attack on certain assets, making leaders and citizens alike believe that there was a threat from space, when there is none.

(Before he could testify, his handlers spirited him away to a secret location in Virginia until the briefing was over...)

Sound familiar? Wernher von Braun warned of such a hoax, as a pretext for putting war in space. And many others have warned of the same.

Space based weapons are already in place - part of a secret parallel space program that has been operating since the 1960s.

ARVs are built and ready to go (see the book "Disclosure" and the chapter with the testimony of Mark McCandlish, et al).

Combine all of this with the current atmosphere of fear and manipulation and there is a real risk of suspending our collective judgment and our constitution.

But know this: If there was a threat from outer space, we would have known about it as soon as humans started exploding nuclear weapons and going into space with manned travel. That we are still breathing the free air of Earth, given the galacticly stupid and reckless actions of an out of control, illegal, secret group, is abundant testimony to the restraint and peaceful intentions of these visitors. The threat is wholly human. And it is we who must address this threat, rein it in and transform the current situation of war, destruction and secret manipulation to one of true Disclosure and an era of sustained peace.

War in space, to replace war on Earth, is not evolution, but cosmic madness. A world thus united in fear is worse than one divided by ignorance. It is now time for the great leap into the future, a leap that moves us out of fear and ignorance and into an unbroken era of universal peace. Know that this is our destiny. And it will be ours just as soon as we choose it.

British rocket experts arrive in Australia (January 9, 1947)

British rocket experts arrived in Australia to finalise plans for a test site in South Australia. The project continues to draw criticism, despite assurances from the British team that tests will in no way threaten Aborigines living in the central reserve, where the base will be located.

The head of the team, Major General J. Evetts, said initial rocket tests would be carried out without explosive warheads. He also said it would be years before the base became operational, although the first rockets are due to be shipped out in the coming months.

A town must be built at the base, and General Evetts said the project, to be known as Long Range Guided Missiles Organization, would employ many people.

It is estimated that construction will cost £3,000,000, and maintenance a similar amount each year thereafter.

Meanwhile, a committee looking at the project are likely to reject claims that it will endanger aborigines. It admits the breakdown of tribal life will be hastened, but judges this as inevitable anyway.

British/Canadians take disks to U.S - Disk crashes at the "Airshow of All-Time" (July 1947)

Some kind of deal was struck between the British secret service and the O.S.S.

They brought down a couple of the jet powered saucers from British Columbia, and got to watch us sending V-2 firecrackers into the sky at White Sands.

Then the fateful, fabulous New Mexico weather with thunder and lightning sprouted up out of nowhere like it does and ruined their little lend lease program by striking one of the craft with lightning as it was on its way back to White Sands after a test flight.

The unfortunate single body found was an ALIEN. A Canadian!!!

It is important to note here that at the time of the crash (July 1947), the Roswell U.S military base was the only base to store nuclear weapons. White Sands, a short aeronautical distance from Roswell, was the "Area-51" of its day.

Government issues Alien Spaceship story before quick retraction (July 1947)

The government initially put out the alien story and then retracted it, but the seed had been placed into the inquisitive minds of Americans and they wondered if little green (or tall gray) men were 'watching us"..."preparing for an invasion."

They harassed Max Brazel for 20 hours straight, unclothed in his skivvies, until they were sure that he would not reveal that it was an unconventional jet powered aircraft of some sort.

For the White Sands tests, and the very existence of the nuclear powered disks, to be kept under wraps, the diversionary stories of alien bodies and crashed extraterrestrial space craft, although fully denied, were an excellent cover.

The bigger the lie, the more people will believe it.

H. E. Ross describes manned lunar landing (November 13, 1948)

A paper read to the British Interplanetary Society by H. E. Ross described a manned lunar landing mission which would require a combination of the earth orbit and lunar orbit rendezvous techniques.

Three spacecraft would be launched simultaneously into earth orbit, each carrying a pilot. After rendezvous, the crew would transfer to ship A, which would refuel from ships B and C. Ship C would be discarded completely, but ship B would be fueled with the surplus not needed by A. The spacecraft would then be fired into a translunar trajectory. Upon reaching the vicinity of the moon, the spacecraft would go into lunar orbit, detach fuel tanks, and descend to the lunar surface. To return to earth, the spacecraft would rendezvous with the fuel tanks, refuel, and fire into a transearth trajectory. On approaching the earth, the spacecraft would rendezvous with ship B, the crew would transfer to ship B, and descend to earth. The ability to rendezvous in space was seen to be the essential element of such a project. The total payload weight at launch would be 1,326 tons equally divided among the three ships as compared to 2.6 times this weight required for a direct ascent and return from the moon.

H. E. Ross describes manned satellite

In a paper presented to the British Interplanetary Society, H. E. Ross described a manned satellite station in Earth orbit that would serve as an astronomical and zero-gravity and vacuum research laboratory.

Ross' suggested design comprised a circular structure that housed the crew of the space laboratory (numbering 24 specialists and support personnel) as well as telescopes and research equipment. The station, he suggested, could be resupplied with oxygen and other life-support essentials by supply ships launched every three months.

"Lunar Spacesuit," H. E. Ross (January 1950)

Journal of the British Interplanetary Society, Vol. 9, No. 1, January 1950, pp. 23-37.

This paper was presented in London at the "Symposium of Medical Problems Associated with Space-Flight" (1949), sponsored by the British Interplanetary Society (BIS). The BIS formed in Liverpool in 1933, and spent much of the time until the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939 designing moon ships. Ross's space suit has four fabric layers covered by a thin surface layer of close-woven cloth silvered to reflect sunlight. Boots with 4-cm-thick asbestos soles reduce heat lost to the cold lunar ground at night. The helmet has a small rectangular glass viewport protected from glaring sunlight by a bill and a pull-down visor of blackened glass. Ross points out that internal pressure might cause the helmet to stand too high over the astronaut's head, and suggests that the suit use "internal body-hardness" to hold the helmet at the proper level. This presages hard torso suit designs first flown in the 1970s. The backpack carries sufficient compressed oxygen for 12 hours on the moon. Sodium peroxide cartridges absorb carbon dioxide and moisture and release oxygen. The backpack also contains radio equipment. Unique features include:

  • silver cape for additional sunlight protection
  • miniature chest-mounted airlock for passing objects in and out of the suit
  • ability to withdraw arms from the suit arms to operate the miniature airlock, eat, and drink
  • optional backpack refrigerator unit for added cooling during daytime moonwalks

Arthur C. Clarke plans for electro-magnetic launching (November 6, 1950)

Arthur Clarke, writer, visionary, and British Interplanetary Society Chair, proposes using a track equipped with sequentially activated electromagnets to launch cargoes off the moon. Clarke's conceptual "electromagnetic accelerator" has since been adopted by many others - most notably during the 1970s by Gerard O'Neill. Clarke points out that the old concept of using a track to launch piloted spacecraft from Earth is impractical because of:

  • Earth's atmosphere, which causes friction heating of fast-moving objects
  • Track length needed to accelerate a ship to Earth escape velocity (11.2 kilometers per second) at a level of acceleration tolerable by the crew. A track permitting acceleration equal to 10 times Earth's gravity, for example, would have to be 600 kilometers long.
However, neither of these constraints apply to lunar cargo launches. Clarke calculates that cargo could be accelerated at 100 gravities to lunar escape speed (2.3 kilometers per second) on a track only 2 kilometers long.

He then proposes reducing space travel costs by making rocket propellant on the moon from lunar minerals and launching it into space in expendable containers to refuel passing spacecraft.

Orbital mechanics dictate that a container launched by the accelerator will intersect the lunar surface. However, a "trivial" rocket burn could nudge it into a circular lunar parking orbit.

Alternately, the accelerator could launch the container into a long elliptical path needing several days to fall back to the moon, during which time a spacecraft could refuel from the container.

Clarke points out that launching fuel from the lunar surface to Earth orbit requires only about 20 percent more launch velocity than launching it to lunar orbit, so a spacecraft in Earth orbit could be fueled "more economically from lunar sources than from the planet only a few hundred kilometres below. . .No spaceship need ever be designed for any mission more difficult than the entry into circular orbit round the Earth, since refueling would be possible both in circum-terrestrial and circum-lunar orbits. . ."

Quote of note: "Of course, there is still the tremendous problem of establishing the lunar colony and building up its industrial potential - but this is a problem that has to be solved in any case. We are rather in the position of trying to run a trans-Atlantic airline when there is no possibility of refuelling on the other side until we have drilled our own oil-wells and set up our own refineries!"

R.A Smith plans for mid-space rendezvous (September 1951)

The uses of rendezvous techniques in space were discussed in a paper read to the Second International Congress on Astronautics in London, England. The problems involved in refueling in space might be simplified considerably if astronauts could maneuver freely, perhaps using a gas-jet pistol and a lifeline. The construction of a space station might then be possible. Mechanical linkage of objects in space was described as the most difficult task of all. While computing the position of an object in orbit might be comparatively easy, linking up with the object without damage by impact would require human intelligence to anticipate error in the attitude of approach.

British moon landing? (1951)

Renato Vesco, the Italian aeronautical technician ( 1924-1999), claimed modern flying saucers are the Anglo-Canadian development of very advanced German projects. In his third book he pointed out a fascinating but hard-to-believe scenario.

British spaceships had been built after blueprints and technology captured in Germany and flown since 1947. In 1951 they landed on the Moon and in 1954 they reached Mars.

November 1951: Second IAF Congress on Astronautics. Gatland, Kunesch and Dixon submit paper "Minimum Satellite Launch Vehicles".

This research is later used by NASA in the design of Explorer I.

The 'Avro' flying saucer (1952-'54)

In 1952, the U.S. probably traded the H-bomb secrets to Great Britain in return for all the saucer technologies and wind tunnel research done in Canada. By 1958 the technology had developed silent, electro-gravitational, Biefeld-Brown type drive.

In the '50s, the news that British boffins were building a saucer set off alarm bells at the CIA. Was the United States being left behind by its staunchest allies in the race for a technological edge? And if Britain and Canada could build a flying saucer, then surely the Soviet Union wouldn't be far ahead.
 
Recently released documents from the CIA archive are full of accounts by former German scientists of their desperate work to save the Fatherland with revolutionary circular aircraft supposedly capable of enormous speeds. But when the CIA set up a study group in 1952 to look into the phenomenon, it discovered something extraordinary far closer to home: In Canada, British engineers were in the process of building a flying saucer of their own.

It was reported that Britain was developing a saucer stealth aircraft as early as the 1950s.

In 1952 the Cold War was in full swing. The House Un-American Activities Committee was looking for reds under beds, and UFO sightings were spreading like an epidemic across the United States. The CIA decided something had to be done.
 
In one of his many memos on the subject, H. Marshall Chadwell, deputy head of the agency's Office of Scientific Intelligence, declared that "something was going on that must have immediate attention." He and others in the CIA were concerned that the Soviet Union was developing a secret weapon based on the "flying discs" that the Nazis had been rumoured to have constructed in the last months of the Second World War.
 
Mr. Chadwell wanted answers. The sense of urgency is tangible in a memorandum he sent in June of 1954 to his department heads, demanding reports on "the use by any foreign power or nation of non-conventional types of air vehicles, such as or similar to the 'saucer like' planes presently under development by the Anglo/British Canadian efforts."

Malton

While CIA agents were dispatched to watch eastern skies for flying saucers, U.S. Air Force officers were visiting Malton, just outside Toronto, the research headquarters of Avro Canada, a subsidiary of the British aircraft firm A.V. Roe Ltd.
Avro Canada is best remembered for the ill-fated Arrow, the supersonic jet fighter shelved by Ottawa in 1959. Now, newly-released CIA documents shed new light on another of the company's dreams - a flying saucer.
 
It was called Project Y, a joint British-Canadian venture into the unknown that was, for much of the 1950s, perhaps the most secret aviation project in the West.
 
Half a century on, the Project Y story remains a remarkable chapter in the history of aerial design, an idea that came tantalizingly close to breaking all the rules of the sky, before collapsing in bitter disappointment for lack of money and faith.

John Frost and the Coanda effect.

After the war, Malton was the place to be for hotshot aircraft designers fleeing Britain's doomed aviation industry. Among them was a supremely talented 31-year-old, John Frost, who had already earned a reputation for unorthodox design with the sleek de Havilland 108, a swallow-shaped research plane and arguably one of the most beautiful aircraft of all time.
Mr. Frost was brought to Avro Canada to work on the CF-100 fighter, an ugly pug-nosed design he never really liked. He soon became obsessed with far more radical departures from orthodoxy. It is unclear whether he drew inspiration from the increasingly widespread popular legend of alien-piloted flying saucers skimming through the postwar skies or how much he relied on previous research.
 
Frost would have known about the "Coanda effect," named after a French Romanian inventor, Henri-Marie Coanda, who experimented with the first rudimentary jet engine as early as 1910. He found that a turbojet would not only provide thrust; by sucking in air, it could also create a vacuum above the wing and thereby produce extra lift.
 
There is plenty of evidence that, in the closing stages of the Second World War, the Nazis began to experiment with secret weapons built around the Coanda effect. Among the documents in the CIA's "X-File" archives is an interview given by a German aeronautical engineer, Georg Klein, who claimed to have worked on a flying saucer under the supervision of Luftwaffe designers Rudolf Schriever and Richard Miethe.

Work on the aircraft in the 1950s was code-named Project Y. Frost and his team initially set out to build a disc-shaped machine with vertical takeoff, but ended with a sleek, arch-shaped aircraft."

The project was shelved in 1954.

U.S obtains saucer technology (1952)

Some have theorised that in 1952, the U.S traded the H-bomb secrets to Great Britain in return for all the saucer technologies and wind tunnel research done in Canada. By 1958 the technology had developed silent, electro-gravitational, Biefeld-Brown type drive.

The "motors" inside the remotely flown, pilotless craft, draw their power from electrical current fed into the Schumann cavity (an area between the surface of the Earth and 50 miles up from the surface). The electrical and magnetic fields set up inside the craft are not conducive to life.

London - Trade Minister Howe said Thursday that Canadian scientists worked for about 18 months on a $100,000,000 flying saucer project but it was finally shelved. 

Howe ... said the Avro Canada firm planned the oval-shaped aircraft but finally dropped it. 

"We did the engineering on it and proved to ourselves that it would fly but we did not carry it to the mock-up stage because it did not seem to have any useful purpose." he said.

Canadian saucer development discusses in 'Look' (1955)

"LOOK" magazine
Volume 19, June 14, 1955

Persistent and fairly credible rumors recur that a Canadian aircraft manufacturer, A. V. Roe, Canada, Ltd., has had a saucer design under development for two years. 

One report has it that the project was abandoned by the Canadian government because it would cost over $75 million to get a prototype flying model into the air. 

The A.V Roe people maintain a confusing silence about the whole thing.

They can't deny the project has been abandoned because they never announced it had begun.

Our own Air Force offers "no comment."

At a recent meeting of engineers, it was indicated that, while flying saucer or sphere projects may still be purely hypothetical, new air-defense problems are setting up requirements for aircraft performance that would seem to be most ideally met by a saucer craft.

One problem, recently stated by Brig. Gen. Benjamin Kelsey, deputy director of research and development of the Air Force, is this: "Airplanes today spend too much time gathering speed on the ground and not enough flying in the air." 

Today's fighters, he pointed out, need extremely long runways and there are few in existence that are now long enough.

These few, and the concentration of the planes using them, provide a worth-while target for an A-bomb. With a single blow, the enemy might cripple a substantial portion of our air defense.

Planes that could take off vertically would not need long runways, which cost millions of dollars. They could be dispersed widely and safely.

In this country, four vertical-rising aircraft already have been revealed. All but one, however, are modifications of conventional plane designs.

None yet approaches the performance a true saucer might be capable of.

What are the requirements of an ideal defense fighter? 1) Ability to take off and land vertically; 2) high speed of over Mach 2. (more than 1500 mph); 3) high rate of climb; 4) excellent maneuverability; 5) heavy armament; 6) ability to operate at 60,000 feet.

The Redshoes and the UFO

By John Stockley.

Australian Ufologist Vol 5 No 4 2001

Koolymilka, South Australia.

Just as a Redshoes missile was elevated and ready to fire, a puzzled shout came from a radar operator in the monitor room, "there's a stationary bogey in the intercept area."

A sharp comment from Major Hotham at range control....."You should have seen it coming. Anybody else see it?"

Other radars confirm the bogie. "It's radar fault. K11 take a look", snaps the major. K11 is the nearest kine-theodolite. The reply is immediate, "we're looking at it, it's a three to four foot diameter disc."

Excitement grew in the control room with expectations rising that the stationary object would soon move, its performance tracked and recorded by the theodolite.

As the object hovered, those in the monitoring room realised that the theodolite's film had only two minutes left.

Then, a scientist monitoring the object through the missile's viewer exclaimed that it was 'going up like a bloody lift.'

The voice of a radar operator then announced that the 'Bogey has disappeared at 100,000 feet.'

One of the scientists estimated that it went fifty thousand feet straight up in five seconds from a standind start.

The next day, as so often happens, officialdom said the tape from the theodolite was blank, it was a radar fault. Those who had observed the object were shattered. Some believed that a cover-up was going on and that what they had seen was possibly something that the Russians had at their disposal.

Object recovered at Woomera Range (1958)

A spherical object was said to be recovered from the Woomera Rocket Range area by a helicopter looking for a missing girl.

In a letter published in Timothy Good's Alien Liaison, a man claims to have worked at the Australian rocket range at Woomera and to have begun his time there as a trainee in the field of transistor theory. The man also claimed to be one of the few men to be cleared to work on missiles under trial there.

In his letter, the witness said that numerous UFO sightings were made at Woomera at the time, but they were seldom reported for fear of persecution.

'While I was at Woomera, the Americans were there in full force for a number of reasons: we wanted them to use the range more, they wanted to sell us the Sidewinder (missile).

While working at Woomera in 1958 or 59 the informant revealed an object was recovered on the range.

It was taken by an American contingent to Wright Patterson Air Force Base but not after some tests had been performed on it. The sphere (2.5 ft wide) was impenetrable by cutters as well as oxy burners and impossible to damage. It was light, but stronger than anything we have on Earth. The objects discovery was reported in the 'Adelaide Advertiser'.
Note: During the 1960's a similar find was made in South Eastern Queensland and reported in Brisbane's 'Courier Mail'.

US. station completed at Woomera (March 1958)

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) completed its first space tracking station at Woomera.

Other stations were also built as the local NASA mission grew to include such space projects as Gemini, Mercury, Mariner and Apollo.

Menzies, Macmillan and the ‘Woomera spy case’ (1958)

In 1958 a British serviceman, based near the Woomera rocket range, passed secrets to the Soviet Union. 

They concerned the joint Anglo-Australian guided missile project. Recently-released archival files reveal the intense anxiety, bordering on panic, that this security breach provoked in Canberra and London. 

The article places this reaction against the background of a long-term quest by Britain and Australia to convince the United States to restore wartime co-operation in the field of atomic technology and lift its embargo on the transmission of classified information. By unraveling, for the first time, the story of the Woomera spy case, the article illuminates issues of security, defence preparations and Anglo-Australian relations.

Project Orion (1958-1965)

From the 1950’s-60’s, Project Orion offered to use nuclear bombs for a constructive purpose -- space travel.

About 5 bombs per second are dropped out the back and detonated to propel the craft along. A huge shock plate with shock absorbers make up the base of the craft. Experiments using conventional explosives were conducted to demonstrate the viability of this scheme. Although this vehicle was conceived to take a crew to Mars, it can also be considered for sending smaller probes to the stars. This project ended with the nuclear test ban treaty in the 60’s.

In the late 1970’s the British Interplanetary Society revisited the Orion propulsion concept, but at a more reasonable scale and for in-space use only.

The first stage of Europe's space exploration program was launched today with the firing of Britain's 100 ton Blue Streak rocket from Woomera.

The 69 foot high blue streak, designed as the first stage rocket for the European Launcher Development Organisation's satellite project, was fired at 9.14am.

It soared to a height of 100 miles before coming to earth 620 miles north-east of the rocket range.

It was the biggest rocket to be launched outside the Soviet Union and the USA.

British flying saucer patent granted (1973)

 

In 1973 British Rail was granted a patent for a 'Space Vehicle', which explains in detail how to construct a nuclear powered flying-saucer seating 22 passengers.

The proposed space craft works on the basic principle of nuclear fusion. The jet of fuel - which could be types of hydrogen - is fired through a nozzle at the bottom of the saucer.

A generator activates pulses from laser beams which are trained on the fuel. Each pulse starts a nuclear fusion reaction, releasing large amounts of high energy particles.

Some of these hit the bottom of the saucer, providing momentum. Others are deflected downwards by electromagnets, giving added momentum. The charge from yet more particles is collected by electrodes as the main electrical power source for the saucer.

A lead shield above the fusion point protects passengers and crew from radiation.

The potential means of rapid intercontinental - or even interplanetary - travel was the inventions chief attraction.

However the patent expired in 1976 as British Rail decided that, technically, the saucer was too far in advance of its time.

  • Did the BAC and British Rail persist with their registered 'invention' which was actually fully operational but highly classified?

  • Were they being tested in the USA in October/November 1975 when high security bases along the US/Canada border were the scene of many UFO reports and Travis Walton was taken in perhaps the most famous alien abduction? Many of the sightings occurred over areas used for the storage of nuclear weapons.

  • Were the disks being tested en-masse over Iran on September 18 and 19, 1976?

  • Were they being tested in Australia when Fred Valentich disappeared in August 1978?

  • Were they being tested off the east coast of New Zealand later in that year when news crews captured some remarkable footage?

  • Where they being tested near Rendelsham in Britain 2 years later when many bright objects were sited over military facilities?

April 23, 1969: The decision was announced to build the U.S. Nurrungar Defence satellite monitoring station near Woomera.

Two-stage Black Arrow rockets launched from Woomera (June 1969 - September 1970)

The first ballistic flight failed but the second in March 1970 was successful.

The Black Arrow was designed and built by Great Britain as a satellite launch vehicle. Only four were launched - all from Woomera. The first (28 June 1969) was deliberately destroyed following loss of control 50 seconds into the flight. The second (4 March 1970) was a successful sub-orbital flight. The third (2 September 1970) was the first orbital attempt which ended in failure when the second stage engines shutdown 13 seconds early.

The Black Arrow program was cancelled by the British Government in July 1971, although one further launch was permitted.

Soviet research into UFO's began under Stalin he was intrigued and worried about the many reported UFO sightings and by the late 1970's a UFO research centre had opened in Moscow.

Photographs of project Ekip were released in an apparent effort by the Russians to revive interest and spending in the Russian Space Program before their share of cosmic dominance is eaten up by the Chinese.

The Ekip was designed at the same facility which produced the Yak-38 a vertical lift-off-and-land fighter. The front of the aircraft is pierced by two jet intakes. Exhausts behind the crest of the 'poached egg' blow over the rear section creating enormous lift and forward motion. It uses an air-cushion similar in principle to a hovercraft.

Experts associated with Ekip believe such an aircraft has the ability to be re-designed to accommodate up to 1300 passengers. Initially the teams goal is to manufacture a craft to carry about 400 and travel to an altitude of more than 3900 metres. This version would measure 36m by 26m about a length of the Boeing 767 and be capable of 640kph and have a range of 8000km.

It has been theorized that the saucers will be used by the 'Shadow Government' when it comes time for them to take over. 

The saucer as a population control mechanism can only work if they get you believing that they come from "outer space".

All saucers are kept in underground facilities and are remotely flown from consoles by white boys with short hair. They will fly them when the upcoming engineered infrastructure breakdown occurs.

They will tell us we are under "alien" attack, please be calm and remain in your homes. This means they don't have to use the national guard to control millions of population.

On May 13, 2002, it was announced 'actor', Tom Cruise would star in an upcoming version of 'War of the Worlds. Due to begin filming next year, we could expect the world's population to be in a 'War of the World's/alien invasion frenzy somewhere around Christmas, 2005.

Australia used for secret tests of UK ballistic missile (1969-1978)

An April 2002 report revealed that Britain secretly tested nuclear weapons delivery systems at Woomera Rocket Range. The Guardian newspaper in London said research to be presented to a British conference showed the penetration aids carrier system was tested there between 1969 and 1978.

Rocket enthusiast John Pitfield said public record office documents showed the system was used to dispense missiles and maneuver a Falstaff rocket, part of Britain's Polaris nuclear missile program. But the paper said no nuclear warheads were launched at 
Woomera during the tests. (From: The Herald Sun, Melbourne. March 2, 2002.)

The penetration aids carrier (Pac) system was tested at the Woomera rocket range - which now houses a refugee detention centre - in 1969, 1975, 1976 and 1978, according to amateur rocket enthusiast, John Pitfield.

Mr Pitfield will tell the British Rocketry Oral History Programme (BROHP) conference in Surrey that public record office documents show that Pac was used to dispense missiles and manoeuvre a Falstaff rocket, part of Britain's now defunct Polaris nuclear missile programme.

With its capacity to launch decoys as well as missiles to form a "threat cloud", Pac was designed to defeat the anti-ballistic missile defence systems developed by the Soviet Union at the time. No nuclear warheads were launched with the testing of the Pac system at Woomera, which was monitored by British scientists in the South Australian desert, 300 miles north of Adelaide.

But the revelation is likely to astonish many anti-nuclear campaigners in Australia, who understood that Britain's testing of nuclear technology in the country had ended in 1963.

Dave Wright, co-organiser of the BROHP conference, said that it was "inconceivable" that senior figures in the Australian government "did not know Falstaff was being tested".

Neither the British nor Australian governments have released details of the testing of more than 4,000 rockets at Woomera.

The desert defence base was useful because unlike most sea-based missile testing sites, rockets detonated at Woomera were launched over a vast area of land, enabling scientists to recover and study rocket remains.

James O'Connell, emeritus professor of peace studies at Bradford University, said: "The British, with their usual passion for secrecy, have been reluctant to reveal documents."

He added: "The Australian government connived with their schemes, but they are more embarrassed now over stories of radiation fallout than they are over the rocketry."

The secret history of Britain's testing of atomic bombs and technology in Australia during the Cold War has been controversial.

Between 1952 and 1963, as many as 18,000 Australian and 22,000 British troops were exposed to nuclear contamination during atomic explosions. Many test veterans later died prematurely of multiple cancers.

Seven New Zealand ex-servicemen have launched legal action against the New Zealand government for putting them through dangerous nuclear testing which they said left them with debilitating illnesses.

Project Daedalus (1973)

British Interplanetary Society starts Daedalus project to design an Interstellar Probe.

In the late 1970’s the British Interplanetary Society revisited the Orion propulsion concept, but at a more reasonable scale and for in-space use only. Project Daedalus was a design study for sending a probe past Barnard’s star with a 50 year trip time. (Barnard’s star is about 6 Light Years away.) In this case it used micro fusion explosions which relied on obtaining the appropriate fuel isotope from Jupiter that it scooped up on its way out of the solar system -- tricky.

Scientist says Invention can defy gravity (1974)

November 10, 1974: A British scientist said yesterday he is on the threshold of inventing an antigravity motor that could fly a manned spaceship to the stars using nuclear fuel the size of a pea.

Eric Laithwaite, professor of heavy electrical engineering at London's Imperial College of Science and Technology, said the motor is based on the gyroscope, a rapidly spinning top that defies gravity. Gyroscopes already are used to guide spaceships.

"The motor is not easy to explain. If it was, others would have tried to produce one by now," said Laithwaite, who described himself as an astro-engineer.

Laithwaite began working on the motor about six months ago after Edwin Rickman, who works with an electrical engineering firm, came to him with the idea. Rickman had patented it after he said it came to him in recurring dreams. Laithwaite incorporated in the device ideas of another amateur inventor, Alex Jones.

Although Laithwaite is far from the production stage with his motor to defy gravity, the 53-year old professor demonstrated his principle Friday at the Royal Institution at London.

Inside a box he brought before his distinguished audience were two electrically driven gyroscopes, each placed on a central pivot. Laithwaite made the gyroscopes rotate at high speed, and they rose into the air on the arms until they reached a curved rail that pushed them down again. The process then repeated itself.

With the two gyroscopes motionless, the box weighed 20 pounds on an ordinary kitchen scale. With the gyroscopes spinning, the contraption weighed 15 pounds.

Laithwaite said the loss of weight corresponded to the gravity loss produced by the spinning gyroscopes. Theoretically, the machine could produce weightlessness, Laithwaite said.

Page 1 A spaceship with his device could be blasted from the earth's gravitational field with conventional rocket fuel, Laithwaite said. Then, without friction to hamper the anti-gravity engine, nuclear power or solar energy could begin operating the gyroscopes and to drive the vehicle to other solar systems, he said.

Laithwaite is the inventor of the electrical linear motor capable of propelling a device through strong magnetic currents.

He said the antigravity motor also could be adapted to drive ships and land vehicles silently but added: "Man is not interested in travelling horizontally. He always wants to go up."

Laithwaite said the antigravity motor is based on electromagnetism and vector multiplication "too complicated to explain."

Then he tried:

"Let me put it this way:

You take a go-kart with no engine and sit in it. It is loaded with a box of lead balls. If you throw one ball out behind you, you move forward a little. Throw another and you move farther still and so on.

But if these lead balls were attached to a strong elastic band and could be sprung back into the go-kart, you would have continuous propulsion. That is what a gyroscope does when it moves from one plane to another." 

Any other suggestions. Was Reckless Eric having an "Episode" or did he and his friends really crack gravity".  Alex Jones's ("Jones the Gyro") machine was demonstrated on British television program in 1972. A gyroscope powered vehicle trundled across a bench. The vehicle used neither a traction nor reaction principles as they are currently defined.

Sponsors are required for ongoing research into to this phenomenon.

Crash Debris (1975)

In 1975, Jean Fraser found an odd bit of honeycomb-like debris on her family’s ranch south of Brisbane. The area is in the vicinity of what was then a secret Australian testing range where the British and Americans conducted some of their most secret atomic experiments.

The Ekip (USSR - Late 1970's)

A pioneering disk type air craft developed within the Soviet Union was revealed to the public in early 2001.

The development of the Ekip was undertaken with spying and surveillance being it's prime task. Many tests were carried out successfully.

Photographs of project Ekip were released in an apparent effort by the Russians to revive interest and spending in the Russian Space Program before their share of cosmic dominance is eaten up by the Chinese.

Ekip was designed at the same facility which produced the Yak-38 a vertical lift-off-and-land fighter. The front of the aircraft is pierced by two jet intakes.

European 'flying saucer' grounded (1997)

A flying saucer project has reportedly been thwarted by a lack of funds.

Aviation engineers in the Russian city of Saratov developed a small prototype craft two years ago, according to Ren TV in Russia. But the project has now been shelved because the money has run out.

Now workers at the plant are "hoping for some assistance from on high, or maybe even from aliens," the TV said. Although the shape of the craft takes its inspiration from old science fiction movies, the aim of its designers is said to be no less than the first step towards "an absolutely new concept of flying".

"The new aircraft is fundamentally different from all means of transportation known so far," the TV report said.

The original concept for the saucer, perhaps optimistically named "Ecology and Progress", envisaged a craft that could move at 700 km/h, accommodate up to 1,000 people and land anywhere, including mountainous terrain or water.

An air cushion system would allow it almost vertical take-off and landing. It was not clear from the report whether the prototype was actually capable of getting off the ground.

Passenger flights to space planned for Woomera (April 2002)

The world's first fare-paying tourists will ride into space from Woomera next year, if plans by a British rocketry company work out.

British space-tourism entrepreneur, Steven Bennett - founder and chief executive of Starchaser, the private company planning the space rides - says he has two solid-fuel rockets under construction.

Two seats have already been sold for the trip at a total of $A1.3 million. One is left, available for a mere $A670,000 to anyone rich enough, and fit enough, to withstand the G-forces of the launch and landing.

For their money they will get a 23-minute ride into space, four minutes of weightlessness at 100 kilometres above the earth and a "skydiver" ride back to Woomera inside the space module.
