Is the government hiding UFO tech? A call for transparency

Christopher Mellon, renowned Harvard University Galileo Project research affiliate and former Senate Intelligence Committee staff director, emphasizes the need for the government to disclose any UFO crash materials it possesses.


Who would have thought, a few decades ago, that we would one day be able to freely speak about the “theory” that Unidentified Flying Objects, aka UFOs, were of extraterrestrial nature. We probably could speak about it freely, but the acronym stood toe-to-toe with conspiracy and tinfoil hats. Today, this is no longer the case.

A Call for Full Disclosure: UFO tech

Public funds potentially financing clandestine UFO programs raises questions about the ownership of any unearthed artifacts. The time has come for the Pentagon and the intelligence community to lay bare if they have established contact with Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs). Reports of the U.S. government secretly analyzing extraterrestrial materials need to be validated or debunked, especially with new legislations protecting whistleblowers in these programs.


Christopher Mellon, former deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence, insists on unveiling the truth regarding these otherworldly materials. “The public not only deserves, but needs to know the truth,” says Mellon in a piece for Politico.

UFO tech; A call for transparency

Mellon has outlined ten cogent arguments promoting such disclosure (I have resumed them below, but you can find the expanded arguments in the Politico piece here):

  1. Democracy Thrives on Transparency: Just as Galileo’s and Darwin’s revolutionary theories were initially met with resistance, today’s breakthroughs may face similar hurdles. Concealing information contradicts democratic principles, hampers progress, and undermines trust in government institutions.
  2. Public Ownership: If secret UFO programs were indeed funded by taxpayers, the retrieved materials belong to the public.
  3. Understanding the Unknown: While initial disclosure might provoke fear, polls indicate a significant percentage of Americans already believe in extraterrestrial life and UFOs. Like our ancestors, we too can overcome our fear of the unknown.

Control and Timing Matters

  1. Inevitability of Exposure: As technology advances, so does our ability to detect UAPs. It is preferable to disclose on our own terms to prevent potential panic during a sudden, high-profile UFO event.
  2. Disclosure Is Inevitable: Globally, civilian and scientific groups are ramping up UAP data collection efforts, indicating that disclosure is only a matter of time.

Benefits and Repercussions of UFO tech

  1. Congressional Proceedings: The gathering of evidence by Congress may verify long-standing allegations of a cover-up regarding recovered off-world technology.
  2. Scientific Progress: If we possess off-world technologies, they could spark revolutions in energy, transportation, and materials sciences.
  3. Reducing International Tensions: Confirming contact with other life forms could reshape international relations, potentially for the better.

The Future

  1. Safety and Precaution: While the threat from UAPs remains uncertain, being prepared and working with other nations on deterrent measures enhances our survival chances.
  2. Encouraging Collaboration: The revelation that we are not alone may jolt humanity into cooperation, combating shared threats such as ecological devastation, nuclear proliferation, and the misuse of AI.

The disclosure of our encounters with UAPs could catalyze global unity, transforming our perspective on international relations and human existence.
