A craft from outer space crash-landed near Roswell, New Mexico, on July 4, 1947. This fascinating new book contains never-before printed, first-hand accounts from credible witnesses, including respected members of the local medical, law-enforcement, military, and scientific communities. The eyewitnesses describe five extraterrestrial beings, the interior of their spaceship, and loose pieces of debris with inexplicable properties.
Five aliens were found amongst the wreckage of their destroyed spacecraft. The descriptions of the bodies - including a doctor's autopsy report - offer intriguing new insights into alien anatomy and may present clues to their homeworld. The interior of the craft was bordered with indecipherable purple hieroglyphics. Pieces of the wreckage were tested by various witnesses who confirm the debris was unlike anything seen anywhere before: metal that acted like elastic, returning to its original shape after being crushed; foil-thin metals that dissipated heat and would not melt or scorch at any temperature.
The site was first discovered by a young man and his girlfriend on a weekend camping trip. A group of archaeologists searching for Native American artifacts arrived a short time later. When the military arrived, the archaeologists were held for questioning and sworn to secrecy. The remains of the ship were packed up along with the crew and shipped to an air base. Then the area was cleared and the cover story began.
The first reports of the crash made news around the world. Then the army contradicted the early accounts, officially announcing that the debris was simply a downed weather balloon. This explanation discredited, the crash has, over the years, been variously declared to be a Japanese balloon bomb, a V-2 rocket, an experimental "flying wing" plane, and an early, unmanned American spaceship.
The authors, who have devoted years to researching the incident, conclusively demonstrate that none of the mundane explanations sufficiently explains what credible eyewitnesses - whose stories corroborate one another - say they saw; for years the federal government has had contingency plans and organizations, such as Project Moondust and Project Blue Book, ready to retrieve and cover up any UFO sightings and crashes; and the Pentagon has repeatedly lied to Congress, as well as the American public, as to the existence of these projects.
Unable to break through the Pentagon's "wall of silence," Congressman Stephen Schiff from New Mexico has requested that the General Accounting Office make a thorough investigation into the government's procedures and handling of UFO crashes. The GAO is due to report its findings about the time this book goes to press...
