Is Earth Ready For Alien Contact? It Is Now – Government UFO Expert Pens Contingency Plan

by Sebastian Kettley                  September 26, 2018                  (express.co.uk)

• Nick Pope, who investigated alien sightings for the UK Government’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) between 1985 and 2006, says the world is incredibly underprepared for the eventuality of extraterrestrial contact. He has drafted a five-page contingency plan for the day humans discover extraterrestrial life.

• Pope said he believes that after the Apollo program failed to extend humanity’s reach into the stars, public excitement around the hunt for alien life dampened and people have grown disillusioned with outer space. This in turn has left our defenses wide open. “It’s an uphill struggle. It’s always tricky to convince people to spend money on what a lot of people might consider white elephant projects, considering a lot of the social problems we have,” says Pope.

• Pope says that people are simply unaware of the dangers lurking in space. According to Pope, one of the biggest threats surrounding Earth’s lack of readiness is the possibility of coming in contact with deadly alien contaminants, described as ‘back contamination’. Outside of NASA’s Office of Safety and Mission Assurance, there is no adequate legislation in place, to deal with potentially lethal extraterrestrial microbes and viruses. Pope urges the UK Government to ensure proper biological hazard containment protocols are in place.

• Pope thinks that there are three ways in which humans might one day find the answer to “are we alone in the universe”. The most likely is the discovery of alien microbes on alien worlds such as Mars. The second is technologically advanced alien civilizations beaming signals toward Earth. The third is advanced alien civilizations sending spacecraft to Earth. Pope’s contingency plan outlines the immediate actions that would need to be taken to ensure the safety of the planet.

A UFO expert who investigated alien sightings for the UK Government has drafted a contingency plan for the day humans discover extraterrestrial life.

Nick Pope, who worked for the Ministry of Defence (MoD) between 1985 and 2006, says the world is incredibly underprepared for the eventuality of extraterrestrial contact.

Whether humans discover alien microbes on Mars or detect radio signals from a distant civilisation, Mr Pope said “top-level strategic planning” needs to be readily available.

And exclusively for Express.co.uk, the UFO expert took it upon himself to draft a five-page-long document outlining what he thinks is an adequate response to discovering aliens.

You can read the entire contingency plan written by Mr Pope below.

Mr Pope said he believes people have grown disillusioned with outer space after the Apollo program failed to extend humanity’s reach into the stars.

He thinks this somewhat dampened public excitement around the hunt for alien life, which in turn has left our defences wide open.

Mr Pope said: “It’s an uphill struggle. It’s always tricky to convince people to spend money on what a lot of people might consider white elephant projects, considering a lot of the social problems we have.

“As often as I like to say questions like ‘are we alone or not in the universe’ – that is one of the most profound questions we could ask.

“And if we can get an answer to that, we want that answer and why wouldn’t we really push hard for it?”
According to Mr Pope, one of the biggest threats surrounding Earth’s lack of readiness is the possibility of coming in contact with deadly alien contaminants.

The UFO expert fears outside of NASA, there is no adequate legislation in place, to deal with potentially lethal extraterrestrial microbes and viruses.

In his drafted plan, Mr Pope urged the UK Government to ensure proper biological hazard containment protocols are in place.

He wrote: “In scientific terms, this danger is described as ‘back contamination’ and is part of ‘planetary protection’ policy.

“In NASA, this falls under the Office of Safety and Mission Assurance (OSMA).

“In the event of any sample-return or discovery-return mission, Her Majesty’s Government (HMG) will wish to seek robust assurances that the lead agency – probably NASA, but maybe the space agency of another nation, or a private company such as SpaceX – has appropriate biological hazard containment protocols in place.”

Earlier in August, Mr Pope told Express.co.uk world governments are making a “big mistake” by not preparing for this eventuality.

White House Could Stage ‘Public Hearings Into Aliens’ Exposing Truth Behind UFO Project

by Paul Harper                September 15, 2018                 (dailystar.co.uk)

• The U.S. Armed Services Committee has been investigating the public funding of the Pentagon UFO project, Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), which investigated flying saucer reports from 2008 to 2012, according to Nick Pope who probed the UFO phenomenon for the UK’s Ministry of Defence in the 1990’s. Officials working alongside scientists from Bigelow Aerospace have examined videos of UFOs and reportedly studied debris from crashed objects. Video of one AATIP case study showed U.S. Navy pilots in the Pacific in 2004 watching an object appear suddenly at 80,000ft before hurtling towards the sea and stopping at 20,000ft.

• Luis Elizondo, who ran the Pentagon project, said researchers concluded some of the UFOs are using time-travel jumps to achieve such speeds and dramatic movements.

• Pope believes the investigation by the U.S. armed service committee could lead to a major public hearing which would be a “political bombshell”. “Some committee members and staffers may have been angered that they were kept in the dark about AATIP, not least because the US government had previously denied there was any official interest in UFOs,” said Pope.

• “(Congressional) hearings should probably go wider than just looking at AATIP, and should look at the UFO phenomenon as a whole,” said Pope. “It would be a great opportunity to get to the bottom of the UFO mystery.”

 

The influential US Armed Services Committee has been investigating the money spent on a top-secret X-Files type Pentagon project.

Seen as one of the most powerful committees in Washington, the group oversees military spending and legislation.

Top political members asked how much taxpayers’ cash was spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) which investigated flying saucer reports for four years from 2008.

Officials working alongside scientists from Bigelow Aerospace have examined videos of UFOs and reportedly studied debris from crashed objects.

VIdeo of one AATIP case study showed US pilots in the Pacific in 2004 watching an object appear suddenly at 80,000ft before hurtling towards the sea and stopping at 20,000ft.

Luis Elizondo, who ran the Pentagon project, said researchers concluded some of the UFOs are using time-travel jumps to achieve such speeds and dramatic movements.

Nick Pope, who probed the UFO phenomenon for the Ministry of Defence, believes the investigation by the US armed service committee could lead to a major public hearing which would be a “political bombshell”.

Mr Pope said: “I think the powerful House Armed Services Committee was as fascinated and mystified by the revelations about the Pentagon’s UFO project as everyone else.

“Some committee members and staffers may have been angered that they were kept in the dark about AATIP, not least because the US government had previously denied there was any official interest in UFOs.

The Pentagon Secretly Studied ‘Exotic and Sophisticated’ UFO Technologies, Bombshell Letter Reveals

by Jasper Hamill                          August 13, 2018                           (metro.co.uk)

• Last December, the world first learned of a Pentagon UFO research program called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) dedicated to exploring ‘unexplained aerial phenomena’ and a range of futuristic technologies. Former program manager, Luis Elizondo, said he believed there is ‘very compelling evidence we may not be alone’, and has alluded to mysterious ‘metamaterials’ from crashed alien spacecraft being stored in specially modified warehouses in Las Vegas.

• Now, a letter obtained by George Knapp’s KLAS ‘Las Vegas Now’ I-Team written June 24, 2009 by then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to William Lynn III, Deputy Secretary of Defense has revealed the US government’s exploration of ‘disruptive aerospace technologies’. Without mentioning aliens or UFOs, the letter confirms that the US Senate ordered an assessment of ‘far term foreign aerospace threats’. These include ‘extremely sophisticated concepts within the world of quantum mechanics, nuclear science, electromagnetic theory, gravitics [anti-gravity], and thermodynamics’.

• Senator Reid warns in his letter that these technologies ‘have the potential to be used with catastrophic effects by adversaries’, but that ‘much progress has been made with the identification of several highly sensitive, unconventional aerospace-related findings’.

• ‘Ultimately, the results of AATIP will not only benefit the US Government but I believe will directly benefit the Department of Defense in ways not imagined,’ Senator Reid wrote. ‘The technological insight and capability gained will provide the US with a distinct advantage over any foreign threats and allow the US to maintain its preeminence as a world leader.’

• Former UFO investigator for the British Ministry of Defence, Nick Pope, said the document reveals just how seriously the US government takes the issue of ‘futurist technology’ and the associated threats and opportunities. Pope had previously said that the AATIP looked at UFO sightings as part of a wider intelligence assessment of the threat from next-generation aircraft, missiles and drones, and the ‘novel military applications’ that we felt might be derived from a fuller understanding of the phenomenon.’

• Britain and the US share concerns that Russia and China might beat us to the punch in the weaponization of futuristic technologies, says Pope. “[I]t’s time to drop our prejudices about the subject and to stop referring to ‘flying saucers’ and ‘little green men’. “It’s time to realize that… there are serious defense and national security issues involved and that the US, the UK, Russia, China – and maybe others – are engaged in potentially game-changing work on this subject.”

[Editor’s Note]  Futuristic weapons technologies. Trump’s declaration that ‘space is a war-fighting domain’. The creation of a US Space Force. Who or what are we gearing up to fight, or to defend ourselves from or free ourselves from? Perhaps the Draco Reptilian and Nazi Dark Fleet alliance?

 

Documents relating to a highly sensitive investigation government project called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) confirm that the US has studied a range of futuristic technologies which would allow it to exercise global military dominance for decades to come. This programme is dedicated to exploring ‘ unexplained aerial phenomena’ and is believed to have written a 490-page report which collects together UFO sightings from around the world. The world first heard about AATIP last year, when footage of an encounter between an F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jet and an oval-shaped UFO travelling at astonishing speed was released.

Now a letter sent from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to William Lynn III, Deputy Secretary of Defense, has revealed tantalising new details of the US government’s exploration of ‘disruptive aerospace technologies’. Although the correspondence does not mention aliens or UFOs, it appears to confirm the US Senate ordered an assessment of ‘far term foreign aerospace threats’. It is not known whether these threats were alien in origin – or came from some rival military power. It said these include ‘extremely sophisticated concepts within the world of quantum mechanics, nuclear science, electromagnetic theory, gravitics [anti-gravity], and thermodynamics’. These technologies ‘have the potential to be used with catastrophic effects by adversaries’ Senator Reid warned in his letter, which was obtained by Las Vegas Now. The letter also said ‘much progress has been made with the identification of several highly sensitive, unconventional aerospace-related findings’.

‘Ultimately, the results of AATIP will not only benefit the US Government but I believe will directly benefit the Department of Defense in ways not imagined,’ he wrote. ‘The technological insight and capability gained will provide the US with a distinct advantage over any foreign threats and allow the US to maintain its preeminence as a world leader.’ Nick Pope, a former UFO investigator for the British Ministry of Defence, said the ‘bombshell’ document ‘reveals much more about the AATIP project than was previously known’. ‘These staggering revelations show just how seriously the US government took the issue. Irrespective of what they believed about the true nature of the UFO phenomenon, this letter gives a telling insight into the reasons why the Pentagon was interested, and what they thought the threats and opportunities might be,’ he told The Metro.
