I-Team: Race Is On to Solve the Mystery of Unknown Materials

by George Knapp and Matt Adams                October 31, 2018                     (lasvegasnow.com)

• For years, the Pentagon has secretly studied the seemingly impossible abilities of unknown craft captured in military videos. Scientists now want to know if the materials used in these UFOs allow them to do what they do. They’ve been collecting so-called “metamaterials”, especially any associated with crashed UFOs, from all over the world.

• Many material samples come through Tom DeLonge’s ‘To The Stars Academy’s “A.D.A.M.” Research Project. “We have multiple samples from multiple sources, a wide range of variety and integrity,” says Luis Elizondo.

• One of the secret studies was carried out by BAASS (Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies), a Las Vegas operation hidden within Bigelow Aerospace, under contract with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) to study metamaterials as well as futuristic technologies. Last year, the New York Times reported that a sample of metamaterial was secretly stored at Bigelow aerospace. Managers of the BAASS program told George Knapp’s “I-Team” news team in Las Vegas that while they are familiar with some of the metamaterial samples, none were ever stored in Las Vegas.

• A type of metamaterial studied by Dr. Hal Puthoff with the Institute for Advanced Studies (in Austin, TX) was “… a multilayered bismuth and magnesium sample. Bismuth layers less than a human hair. Magnesium samples about 10 times the size of a human hair, supposedly picked up in the crash retrieval of an advanced aerospace vehicle. It looks like it’s been in a crash.” Puthoff and his colleague Dr. Eric Davis are on the cutting edge of attempts to identify an assortment of bits and pieces that are seemingly beyond anything we can create.

• Astrophysicist Dr. Jacques Vallee has been analyzing metamaterials since the 80s, often using the technical expertise of Stanford University and Silicon Valley to unravel unknown samples acquired from all over the world. Vallee pointedly steers clear of any military funding and he’s shared his findings at public conferences.

 

LAS VEGAS – A global scramble is underway to identify and perhaps replicate unidentified mystery materials that have been collected at multiple sites around the world.

A few of the samples have defied analysis by leading scientists, who say they don’t know how the material was engineered, or why, or by whom?

Some of the metamaterial was allegedly collected in connection with UFO incidents, which gives the whole endeavor an otherworldly glow.

For years, the Pentagon secretly studied the seemingly impossible abilities of unknown craft captured in military videos.

Scientists now want to know if the materials used in these mystery aircraft allow them to do what they do. For years, one of the secret studies was carried out by BAASS (Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies), a Las Vegas operation hidden within Bigelow Aerospace.

Documents first reported by the I-Team show that BAASS landed a contract with the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency), and one of the objectives was to study so called metamaterials, as well as futuristic technologies.

“It was a multilayered bismuth and magnesium sample. Bismuth layers less than a human hair. Magnesium samples about 10 times the size of a human hair, supposedly picked up in the crash retrieval of an advanced aerospace vehicle. It looks like it’s been in a crash,” said Dr. Hal Puthoff, with the Institute for Advanced Studies during a presentation in Las Vegas.

In June, physicist Hal Puthoff came pretty close to saying that the weird wedge of metamaterial came from a crashed saucer, but he can’t know for sure. Puthoff and his colleague Dr. Eric Davis are on the cutting edge of attempts to identify an assortment of bits and pieces that are seemingly beyond anything we can create.

This one sample is engineered in layers thinner than microns, through a process unknown on earth, and for a purpose we can only guess.

“Nowhere could we find any evidence that anybody ever made one of these when we talked to people in the materials field who should know, they said we don’t know why anybody would want to make anything like this,” Dr. Puthoff said.

UFO Investigation: U.S. Officials ‘Hold Secret Alien Tests’ At Ranch

by Latifa Yedroudj                     October 7, 2018                      (express.co.uk)

• A new document has been leaked by Robert Bigelow’s ‘Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies’ describing a “living laboratory and paranormal hotspot known as Skinwalker Ranch,” located in the Uintah Basin area of Utah, east of the Wasatch Mountains.

• In 1996, Bigelow began a multidisciplinary scientific study by a team of ‘PhD-level investigators’ to collect evidence, interview witnesses, and search for explanations as to the strange occurrences in the area of Skinwalker Ranch, as part of the Pentagon’s secretive ‘Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program’ as revealed in an exclusive New York Times article in December 2017.

• Jeremy Corbell of the UFO website “Extraordinary Beliefs” has produced a documentary film entitled, “Hunt for the Skinwalker”, with the help of UFO researcher, I-Team Nevada news reporter, and Coast2Coast host George Knapp, recounting their own investigations at Skinwalker Ranch. Says Corbell, “The phenomenon… of diverse activity (at the ranch)… included bizarre creatures, poltergeist activity, invisible entities, orbs of light, animal and human injuries and much more.” Corbell says that the Skinwalker program under the AATIP was even more comprehensive than the UFO program which studied UFO craft and propulsion.

• Knapp told the Daily Star Online, “Skinwalker Ranch is like a paranormal Disneyland. If it’s weird, it happens on and around the ranch.” Utah locals have witnessed mysterious craft and strange paranormal incidents at the Skinwalker Ranch for over 50 years, although legends tell of such paranormal sightings in this area for hundreds if not thousands of years. “Sightings include orbs, UFOs, animal mutilations, unknown creatures, poltergeist-type activity, and many other inexplicable incidents.”

 

Over 50 years, Skinwalker ranch has come under intense scrutiny for alleged UFO sightings, with residents reporting a spate of odd paranormal incidents.

The US Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, a secret £16.5million (US$22 million) investigation to study unidentified flying objects, was first made public on 2017.

Now, documents leaked by the BAASS (Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies) revealed the programme also ran a top secret investigation at the highly controversial Skinwalker ranch.

A BAASS manager told the Daily Star Online: “The investigations by BAASS provided new lines of evidence showing that the UFO phenomenon was a lot more than nuts and bolts machines that interacted with military aircraft.

                       Jeremy Corbell

“The phenomenon also involved a whole panoply of diverse activity that included bizarre creatures, poltergeist activity, invisible entities, orbs of light, animal and human injuries and much more.”

Speaking about the undercover investigation, Jeremy Corbell of Extraordinary Beliefs, told Daily Star Online: “The Pentagon’s other and larger investigation delved into mysteries far more profound – far more disturbing – than alleged alien aircrafts.

“Its focus was a living laboratory and paranormal hotspot known as Skinwalker Ranch.”

George Knapp, an American investigative journalist, revealed the secret document to the New York Times last year but was disappointed and claimed they left out vital information.

Along with Mr Corbell, he has produced an exclusive documentary – named ‘Hunt for the Skinwalker’ – recounting a series of his own investigations at Skinwalker ranch.

I-Team Obtains Some Key Documents Related to Pentagon UFO Study

by George Knapp and Matt Adams              July 25, 2018               (lasvegasnow.com)

• Since the December 2017 NY Times article releasing U.S. military video of the “Tic-Tac UFO”, and subsequent UFO videos, thousands of Freedom of Information Act requests have been filed by UFO researchers. So far, the Pentagon hasn’t complied with any of the requests for more information. According to Luis Elizondo, the man who ran the military’s secret UFO study for years, says that there are as many as two dozen more unreleased videos still in the Pentagon vaults. The Las Vegas KLAS-TV “I-Team” has managed to obtain key documents related to the UFO inquiry.

• Former Senate Majority Leader, Nevada Senator Harry Reid instigated the Pentagon study back in 2007. Since his role was revealed last year, he’s had calls from many other lawmakers in Congress. Reid believes there have likely been classified Congressional briefings involving military eyewitnesses to similar UFOs. Reid wants the military UFO program to continue and its findings made public.  (See 2009 letter from Reid to the Deputy Secretary of Defense asking for more personnel to increase productivity in the Advanced Aerospace Threat and Identification Program.)

• As the chief scientist for Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies, a government-sponsored research project, physicist Hal Puthoff made the first public presentation about the UFO study. In a newly released document, research subjects are listed including warp drive, invisibility, metamaterials from crash sites, worm holes, antigravity, and how to track hypersonic vehicles.

• “You’ve got these advanced aerospace vehicles flying around, that we don’t know where they come from, what the intent is, possibly off-world even,” said Dr. Puthoff. Puthoff says he doesn’t know if more UFO videos will be released, but says there is big news coming about the ones already made public.

 

LAS VEGAS – Those secret UFO files at the Pentagon are still secret, but not for a lack of trying.
Thousands of researchers have filed requests via the Freedom of Information Act, hoping to force the military to unleash documents or videos generated during the secret study. The main contractor for the Pentagon was a Las Vegas company.

So far, the Pentagon hasn’t complied with any of the requests for more information. But now, the I-Team has obtained key documents related to the UFO inquiry.

The Pentagon’s release last December of a 2004 encounter between pilots from the USS Nimitz and a mystery machine dubbed the Tic Tac UFO generated huge headlines and demands for more releases.

Two more followed. The Gimbal video from 2015 and another nicknamed Go Fast. As many as two dozen more videos are still in the Pentagon vaults, according to the man who ran the military’s secret UFO study for years.

During his time running the AATIP program, Elizondo set into motion the release of these and other videos. He doesn’t know if the spigot has been turned off now that he is longer there. Since October, he’s been working with To the Stars Academy to help change the perception of the UFO issue, particularly in Washington. And without revealing too much, Elizondo hints that progress is being made.

“It’s about changing the paradigm in which our government can finally take this issue seriously without worrying about their political survival, right, allowing Congress to have a conversation in open or closed session saying, all right guys, gals, what do we do about this?”
