This July 8 marks the 72th anniversary of the Roswell Case, referring to the alleged collision of a ship of non-terrestrial origin (a balloon according to the official version), near the city of Roswell, in New Mexico.
In particular, on July 8, 1947, the announcement by the United States Army of the “capture” of the remains of a “flying saucer” on a ranch near Roswell was published in the press . The communication officer at the Roswell Army air base, Walter Haut, issued a press release stating that 509 Operations Group personnel had recovered a “flying disc , ” which had crashed on a ranch near Roswell.
The antecedents of the case go back to the month of June. Mac Brazel, a farmer from New Mexico, discovers scattered remains on his ranch near Corona, New Mexico, and on July 5 reports to the authorities.
The Roswell Daily Record newspaper published that the mysterious device was a table-sized object , had gray rubber spread, large amount of silver paper, adhesive tapes with floral designs and wooden rods. But it did not have anywhere with any metal that could have been used as an engine.
After the release of the military communique on July 8, and the visit to the zone of a military high command, the version changes and the facts are attributed to the impact of a large balloon of the Mogul Project, with which the United States intended to spy on the USSR. Several subsequent military reports corroborated this version.
The absurdity is that it was claimed that the tests began in 1953, and the incident occurred in 1947. To overcome this incongruity, the military argued that “the witnesses forget the dates”. This explanation could be convincing, but the event appeared in a large number of American newspapers in 1947. This contradiction in Roswell’s UFO Incident only fueled the theories about a darker, paranormal side.
An 82-year-old man, Jack Banett, former Air Force cameraman, was apparently the author of the recording and a copy he had hidden for decades, frightened by the transcendence of what he saw.
The Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, although not a direct witness, also stated on numerous occasions that Roswell was a true incident related to beings of non-terrestrial origin, based on his high level contacts within the government. “I have seen the secret UFO files, and there is no doubt that there was contact with extraterrestrials,” he said.
This astronaut also believes that there is a government organization that is parallel and independent to the government that conducts experiments with extraterrestrial technology “and that is why all these incidents can not be brought to light”. Mitchell died in 2016 without having provided any evidence to corroborate his claims.
