For the last weeks (if not months) the internet has been bombarded and flooded by tabloid reporting on the UFO phenomenon.
All of a sudden, it is all right to speak out loud about the phenomena, without having to wear your tinfoil hat, or without getting weird looks.
In fact, it is no longer a conspiracy, and people are open to discuss UFOs almost as if it was never a conspiracy, to begin with.
That’s mostly thanks to the various declassified documents and recent revelations by pilots as well as government officials from the United States.
The UFO Fever
Not only have various reports emerged of incredible encounters between Navy Pilots and Unidentified Flying Objects, but government officials have also recognized that the phenomenon was closely studied by special branches of the government.
Reports were gathered.
Videos were filmed.
And everything was tucked away until recently.
But the Pentagon has recently decided to spill the beans and tell the world: ‘You know what, we’ve been aware of UFOs for quite some time, and we spent millions of dollars trying to figure out what the UFO means.’
All of a sudden the UFO phenomenon is no longer a conspiracy theory.
But even before the government went out guns blazing, there was plenty of evidence the UFO phenomenon was real, and there are various videos available that show how UFOs were closely followed by the military.
Going back further in time
But if you were to go back in history, some 60-70 years, you’d see that UFOs were a thing back then too.
Perhaps people were less informed than they are today, but flying saucers and unidentified flying objects were of great interest in the 1940s and 1950s.
But just because UFO’s exist, it does not necessarily mean that they are of alien origin, and this article by space.com explains this in a perfect way.
We know that UFOs were investigated and the phenomenon was taken seriously even before the Pentagon created AATIP.
A quote by the former head of the CIA Roscoe Hilenkoetter explains this best:
“…behind the scenes, high ranking air force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.”
Hermann Oberth considered the founding father of rocketry and aeronautics is someone who also deeply believed in the UFO phenomenon.
“It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries.”
Declassified CIA Documents
There are various documents that have been declassified throughout the years that show that during Nazi Germany, extensive research was done on UFOs, and people even tried building their own.
The Nazis were technologically pretty advanced and built incredible tanks, rockets, and different kinds of weapons.
There are documents that can be found online that even argue how the Nazi’s developed advanced technologies like antigravity.
According to an Italian researcher by the name of Renato Vesco, the Nazi had developed advanced technology and were even building what we call flying saucers.
“[Italian researcher] Renato Vesco argued that Germans had developed antigravity. The disc-shaped and tubular craft were built and tested near the end of the Second World War, which, he argued, was the proper explanation of foo fighters. These concepts, he maintained, were developed by the Americans and Soviets and led directly to flying saucers.” – Richard Dolan.
But the first documents we can find that mention Nazi technology and flying saucers (UFOs) can be traced back to the work of Italian expert Giuseppe Belluzzo.
In a newspaper report dating back to March 24, 1950, it was revealed how UFOs were flying discs that were designed and engineered in German and Italy around 1942.
Avro Canada and Flying Saucers
And back in the 1940s and 1950s UFOs and Flying saucers there popular.
In fact, in 1953, Avro Canada revealed it was developing an advanced flying vehicle dubbed the VZ-9-AV Avrocar. This flying vehicle was described as a circular jet aircraft which could reach a speed of 1,500 mph (2,400 km/h).
But after the announcement by Avro Canada, a German engineer called Georg Klein came forward saying that Avro Canada wasn’t developing anything new and that they were actually copying and engineering UFOs that were developed during Nazi Germany.
Mr. Klein is the man mentioned in some of the documents declassified by the CIA about UFOs.
“…though many people believe the ‘flying saucers’ to be a postwar development, they were actually in the planning stage in German aircraft factories as early as 1941,” the CIA documents reveal.
As revealed by Klein, the flying saucer that was developed in Germany was able to reach an altitude of around 13,000 meters in a matter of minutes. It was also able to travel at speeds of up to 2,200 kilometers per hour.
It was revealed by Klein that the Nazi were further developing their flying saucer in order to allow them to travel at even greater speeds. However, the construction of the ‘UFOs’ was hampered due to a lack of ‘sepcial materials’.
