CONSPIRACY CORNER: The Roswell UFO crash

March 5th, 2013 by Gerard 2 Comments

 

UFOs, little green men and stories of flying saucers reportedly date back thousands of years, but our modern love affair has its roots in post-war America, June 1947 to be exact when a civilian pilot named Kenneth Arnold reported seeing several ‘flying saucers’ while flying near Mount Rainier, Washington. He described the objects as flying like geese and their movements ‘like a saucer would if you skipped it across the water’. And so the term ‘flying saucer’ was born. The story soon gained national interest and more and more sightings were being reported every day. One of these sightings occurred in early July 1947, only a couple of weeks after Kenneth Arnold’s close encounter.

Roswell. What was once a small quiet town in south east New Mexico has now become a mecca for conspiracy theorists and UFOlogists alike. What happened there in the summer of 1947 changed the town forever and now it has become synonymous with UFOs in the same way as Area 51 and Groom Lake, Nevada.

A ranch foreman by the name of Mac Brazen informed the Chaves County about some strange material he had found on the Foster Ranch, just outside Corona, New Mexico. He reported that he thought it was the remains of a flying disc like the ones that Kenneth Arnold had reported. The sheriff’s office passed the information on to the Roswell Army Air Force (RAAF) Base and to the base intelligence officer Major Jesse Marcel. Marcel immediately went to the ranch to speak with Mac Brazen personally and when he got there they began to look for more debris. Marcel then ordered a recovery team to come in and take what had been found by Brazen back to the RAAF for inspection.

Soon Roswell and the surrounding areas were buzzing with military personnel and a clean up operation began. The recovery was carried out by the 509th Bomb Group of the Eighth Air Force and the debris was transported back to Roswell Army Air Field were it was inspected before being passed on to what was described at the time as ‘higher headquarters’.

The day after the wreckage was recovered, a press release was issued by the US military that confirmed rumours that had been circulating regarding a ‘flying disc’. They stated that this disc and associated debris was recovered by Major Marcel’s 509th Bomb Group of the Eighth Air Force, Roswell Army Airfield. This was picked up by a number of newspapers, including the Roswell Daily Record, which ran with the headline:

RAAF CAPTURES FLYING SAUCER ON RANCH IN ROSWELL REGION

However this statement was retracted and a new one was released which stated that what was found was in fact a weather balloon. A press conference was held and some of the recovered items were put on display in an effort to confirm the weather balloon story. However, there are various reports that allege that what was put on display at the press conference was merely a fraction of what was recovered.

Sometime after the initial reports, interest in the Roswell incident – as it has become known – subsided, until in 1978 an interview between renowned UFOlogist Stanton T. Freidman and Major Jesse Marcel was published. Marcel claimed that what had been recovered was indeed the wreckage of an alien spacecraft and for the 30 years after the US Government had been involved in a cover up operation. An interview with The National Enquirer brought Roswell back into not only the national press but also international as news media from all over the world clamoured for interviews etc. The public’s interest in Roswell was reignited and afterwards more witnesses started to come forward, some describing actually seeing a craft which was more or less intact and which had strange markings all over it. Some people even claimed that there were 2 live aliens recovered from the wreckage and these were transported to a secure facility where one died shortly after, the other though reportedly lived until 1956. These claims were backed up in 1989 when former Roswell mortician Glenn Dennis gave a detailed account in which he claimed alien autopsies were carried out at the Roswell base and that he was actually contacted personally by personnel at the base and asked to provide child size coffins.

More recently in 2007 a man named Walter Haut, who was serving as a Lieutenant at RAAF base during 1947 and was the PR Officer responsible for issuing the press releases on the orders of the base commander Colonel William Blanchard, died and upon his death a sworn affidavit was opened in which he stated that the weather balloon story was merely a cover up and the real object had indeed been recovered and stored in a hangar – the infamous Building 84. He claimed that he personally was witness to the craft which he described as a metallic egg shaped object, 12 – 15ft in length and approximately 6ft wide with no windows, wings, tail, landing gear or any other noticeable feature. He claimed to have seen two bodies lying side by side on the floor which were partially covered by a tarp. He described them as around 4ft tall, with disproportionately large heads. Towards the end of the affidavit, Haut concludes: “I am convinced that what I personally observed was some kind of craft and its crew from outer space.”

Perhaps the most interesting thing about Lt. Haut’s testimony is that in the numerous interviews he gave throughout the years, he was always keen to play down the role he played and he made no such claims as to what allegedly took place at the crash site or the RAAF base. If we are to believe the conspiracy theory we may have the incident at Roswell to thank for some things we use every day in our modern world. It is alleged that thanks to the recovery of the downed craft and its other worldly technology, scientists have been able to reverse engineer and make use of some things that were found on board. It is claimed that discoveries such as Kevlar body armour, stealth technology, night vision goggles, lasers and the integrated circuit chip all have their roots in alien technology from the Roswell crash.

Roswell is now something of a pop culture phenomenon. Featured in many TV shows, movies, books, video games etc and all thanks to what could well have been a downed weather balloon. Not bad for a small quiet town in south eastern New Mexico.

    -This innovative concept consists of hull and core where are held all 8 bteps of the work-flow which make the concept functional. The core has several gears and turbines which are responsible for these 8 steps (5 of them are dedicated to the turbo stages). The first step is fuel compression, followed by 2 cold turbo levels. The fourth step is where the fuel starts burning – combustion stage, which creates thrust for the next, 5th step – thrust step, which provides power to the planetary gears and turbines and moves the system. This step is followed by two hot turbo steps and the circle is enclosed by the final 8th step – bigger turbine.

    ·2-Imploturbocompressor; One Moving Part System Excellence Design – The InFlow Interaction comes from Macro-Flow and goes to Micro-Flow by Implossion – Only One Compression Step; Inflow, Compression and outflow at one simple circular dynamic motion Concept.

    *·“Excellence in Design” because is only one moving part. Only one unique compression step. Inflow and out flow at the same one system, This invention by its nature a logic and simple conception in the dynamics flow mechanics area. The invention is a wing made of one piece in a rotating motion, contained in a pair cavity system connected by implocavity, and interacting dynamically with a flow, that passes internally “Imploded” through its simple mechanism. This flow can be gas (air) or liquid (water). And have two diferents aplications, in two diferents form-function; this one can be received (using the dynamic flow passage, as a receiver). Or it can be generated (with a power plant, generating a propulsion).

    Presenting one of the many diferents examples, could specifically be this same invention applied in pair in every bar end, similar to what would be a turbine reaction or turbocompressor, and making the best profit of a exhaust gas dynamic flow, compressing a new air entrance and therefore falling into the technical field of the reaction turbines. This of course, considerating materials that are resistant to the high temperatures such as the ceramics ones. And furthermore this invention approaches more the combustion point and therefore also more to the gases expansion point, in order to search a higher expanding dynamic strength. It could, for example, be presented into an inter dynamic rotor system (aplication), supported internally and in a rotating system. And likewise being able to activate a new concept of dynamic turbine by pushing gearing, and likewise, creating a new technical field. Or can be in a more simple way by means of the system of this same invention applied to the bar end, but without a movement of interaction with the rotor, only the rotary dynamics in a static point for any type of mechanical work such as a dynamo in order to generate electricity through the dynamic strength of a flow when it is rotating at the moment it receives it, just like a pelton well do.

    And when the flow that is received and that is intended to be used at best, must no necessarily by a exhausting or rejection gas, but must be a dynamic passing gas or liquid flow with the only intention to count it or to measure it. This could be possible at the passing and interacting period when it passes inside its simple mechanism. This can be in any point of the flow trajectory.

    In case the flow that is received is a water falling by gravity, and a dynamo is placed on the rotary bar, the Imploturbocompressor can profit an be obtained by generating? electricity such as obtained by the pelton well, like I say before.

    Or only receive the liquid flow, in order to measure its passage with a counter placed on the bar, because when this flow passes through the simple mechanism of a rotating wing made of only one piece it interacts within the implocavities system. And this flow can be air wind, with the diference of can have an horizontal position, and have wind from all the sides and all the time. The aforementioned information about this invention refers to technical applications, such as a dynamic flow receiver. (whether being gas or liquid).

    Connecting the free end of the bar of this invention to a power plant (manual, electrical, mechanical, or combusting, etc…), there will be available a capacity and a position in order to generate the flow dynamics (or even better, a propulsion). This applied? to gas flows (air) or to liquid flow (water). This of course, considering the due rotating directions as well as the inclination, wings, curvature and the due dimensioning for every application of every technical field.

    With the appropriate power plant and the appropriate dimensioning and number of RPM this invention is also feasible to generate an atmospheric air propulsion and the autoprolpusion of an aircraft. Being an effective and very simple system that implodes and compresses the atmospheric air permits the creation of a new concept of propulsion for aircrafts, due to its simple mechanism and innovative nature. At the place of the aircraft were the system appears and the manner how the propulsion direction can be oriented with a vectorial flow (no lobster tail) with I call “yo-yo system” (middle cut (at the shell) to move, one side loose), guided and balanced is feasible to create a new concept of TOVL-vertical take-off landing, I wish good for a wild conditions. Because the exhaust propulsion can going out radial in all the 360 vectorial positions, going out direct all the time in all the vectors direction. With his rotor cover for an better furtive fly, like going down of a bridge for example.

    The “Imploturbocompressor”, is a good option to pump water, or a gas flow, and all kinds of pipes lines dynamic moves.

    Likewise, with the due form and dimensioning, and considering the liquid density and the due revolutions for this element there could be generated a propulsion (water) in order to move an aquatic ship, whether on surface or under water. Also can be a good option to pump liquid combustion for a rocket propulsion.

    Making a metaphoric comparison with the intention to expose it more clearly for a better comprehension of this innovative technical detail, it would be similar to the trajectory and motion of a dynamic flow compared with a rope (extended) that passes through the system would have now a knot (without obstructing the flow), so the complete way of the flow at the imploturbocompresor system have three direct ways and bettween make two diferents turns; direct way (entrance) – turn – direct way (implocavity) – turn – direct way (exit), all this in a circular move system.

    Its prudent to mention that the curves and the inclinations of the blades of a rotating wing made of this invention, is conferred by its shape and function a structural rigidity allowing it to conduct and alter appropriately the dynamic flow passing through its system.

    This invention are very versatile, can be applied and used for any kind of flow, whether as gas or as a liquid, received or be generating it.? And it has different technical fields, being applied in any circumstance where the intention is to obtain an profitable work, to modify on his imploflow system.

And for the Imploturbocompressor application, cut be as; in a circumstance at the engine, as an A-activate flow, and with a a tube flow conduit going to the wheel as a B-receiving-flow the work use.
