• In mid-December, The New York Times reported on a secret $22 million Pentagon program known as the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program which investigated reports of unidentified flying objects and analyzed artifacts and debris allegedly gathered from crashed alien craft.
• According the NYT report, the Department of Defense has a collection of “alien alloys” and other materials stored in a hangar in Las Vegas which defy scientific explanation.
• However, several chemists have come forward to say that the existence of such unknown material is impossible. Oregon State University chemist May Nyman, explained that thanks to X-ray diffraction, the crystalline structure of any metal alloy can quickly be identified.
• But do these scientists grasp the situation? We’re talking about extraterrestrtial craft from a distant star system. It is really ‘impossible’ for unknown elements or alloys to exist in the galaxy? Seven new elements were discovered right here on Earth in the last thirty years.
• [Editor’s Note] It would seem that these mainstream scientists still labor under the assumption that what we have here on Earth is all there is. Where are all of the open minded scientist who will usher us into the 21st Century?
UFO watchers and truth-seekers everywhere got an early Xmas present this year when The New York Times reported on a secret $22 million Pentagon program known as the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. This program, the NYT article claims, investigated reports of unidentified flying objects and analyzed artifacts and debris allegedly gathered from crashed alien craft. Many of the article’s claims should sound familiar to the world of UFO research – black money, reverse-engineered alien technology, classified military reports, etc. – but one detail jumped out: according the report, the Department of Defense has a collection of “alien alloys” and other materials stored in a hangar in Las Vegas which defy scientific explanation.
One of the authors of the NYT article, Ralph Blumenthal, told an MSNBC interviewer that these materials are unlike anything found on Earth: “They have, as we reported in the paper, some material from these objects that is being studied so that scientists can find what accounts for their amazing properties, this technology of these objects, whatever they are. They’re studying it, but it’s some kind of compound that they don’t recognize.”
Claims of strange and amazing alien metals are nothing new, found in other UFO cases such as in the mysterious “memory metal” found after the Roswell incident – and throughout science fiction, of course. After these most recent claims received such widespread coverage, scientists around the world weighed in to share their thoughts on these so-called “alien alloys.” According to several chemists, the existence of such an unknown material is impossible. Oregon State University chemist May Nyman, told LiveScience that thanks to X-ray diffraction, the crystalline structure of any metal alloy can quickly be identified, “These are all very standard techniques in research labs, so if we had such mysterious metals, you could take it to any university where research is done, and they could tell you what are the elements and something about the crystalline phase within a few hours.”
Richard Sachleben, a retired chemist and member of the American Chemical Society, says it’s “quite impossible” that there are alloys we can’t identify, “There’s not as many mysteries in science as people like to think. It’s not like we know everything — we don’t know everything. But most things we know enough about to know what we don’t know.”
