• On July 5th, Frank Kimbler, an associate professor of geology with the New Mexico Military Institute, gave a talk entitled: “UFOs: The Global Quest for Physical Evidence,” at the Roswell UFO Festival. Kimbler has spent nine years researching the Roswell and the nearby Corona UFO crash sites using metal detectors.
• Among military relics scattered about, Kimbler found an alloy at the Roswell site and had it tested by Atlas Testing Laboratories Inc in California, which tested the alloy at the behest of a TV production studio. The test indicated an alloy known to be commonly used in aerospace skins. But the small amount of iron, among other factors, made the material unlike anything ever produced on Earth. Said Kimbler, “[I]t is something that is not on any registry or anything anywhere.” “What we end up with is a brand-spanking new aerospace alloy that nobody has manufactured, at least that I’m aware of. Could it be of ET origin? Maybe,” he said. Kimbler stresses that he isn’t interested in commercializing his work, only searching for answers.
• In his presentation, Kimbler also looked at the physical evidence from three other suspected UFO sightings. In 1957, a young couple were walking along the beach in Ubatuba, Brazil, when they saw a UFO that appeared in distress. After it was assisted by another craft, materials from the distressed craft fell onto the beach. Those samples have isotopes that are outside the range of known Earth-originated materials, according to Kimbler.
• In 1986, a UFO crashed on a mountain peak near the Russian mining town of Dalnegorsk, and was witnessed by over 100 people. Exotic material was recovered. But Kimbler is a bit dubious, since the mining town would be capable of smelting unusual metals.
• In 1976, two university students in Bogota, Columbia saw a UFO in distress, and after being aided by another craft, ejected molten materials. Tests on the materials found a composition of primarily aluminum with some phosphorus, iron and sulphur, Kimbler said.
• These cases are unique as the physical evidence has a clear “chain of provenance” from the eyewitnesses to the testing labs. However, Kimbler noted that in some cases the materials were ‘misplaced’ after testing.
An aerospace alloy not known to have been produced on Earth was found at the site of the famous 1947 “Roswell Incident,” according to a local geologist.
Frank Kimbler, an associate professor of geology with the New Mexico Military Institute, has spent nine years conducting research about the alleged UFO crash site on ranch land near Corona and using metal detectors to search the site. He said he has recovered World War II-era artifacts and some still-not-fully-understood materials, including the alloy tested by a California aerospace lab.
Kimbler gave a talk, “UFOs: The Global Quest for Physical Evidence,” Friday at the International UFO Museum and Research Center as one of the speakers at the 2019 UFO Festival.
“It is not on the books,” said Kimbler about one sample from the crash site that has been tested. “It is not something that we can’t make, because we probably could make it, but it is something that is not on any registry or anything anywhere.”
Kimbler said he reached his conclusion after he reviewed the results of tests on samples done by Atlas Testing Laboratories Inc., which did the work at the behest of a TV production studio.
The TV group didn’t think the results showed anything interesting. But Kimbler said that, in fact, the data that is intriguing is not from the sample the TV production group was most concerned about, but another sample he provided, labeled as NI-0420, but that he also refers to as NP-0420.
Kimbler said he has become an expert on aluminum alloys during the past nine years and he knows that the combination of elements found in the NI-0420 sample indicates the material is very similar to 6951 alloys, known to be used in aerospace skins. But the small amount of iron found, among other factors, makes the material unlike anything ever recorded as produced on Earth.
