9 Facts About Project Blue Book, the Government’s Top-Secret UFO Program

Between 1952 and 1969, the U.S. Air Force conducted a series of studies on UFO sightings called Project Blue Book. Not only is there a new History Channel series about the program, this year also marks the 50th anniversary of the project’s termination. Get to know the secretive program better.

1. PROJECT BLUE BOOK WASN’T THE GOVERNMENT’S FIRST UFO STUDY.

In 1947, a private pilot named Kenneth Arnold reportedly spotted nine glowing UFOs zooming over Washington’s Mount Rainier. The public went wild for the so-called “flying saucers.” Shortly after, the U.S. government launched Project SIGN to determine if such objects were a threat. In 1948, Project SIGN purportedly published a document called the “Estimate of the Situation,” which suggested that extraterrestrials were a possible explanation for UFO sightings. As the story goes, Air Force officials destroyed the document and launched a more skeptical investigation in the late 1940s called Project GRUDGEBlue Book came a few years later.

2. THE “ESTIMATE OF THE SITUATION” WAS INSPIRED BY A MIND-BOGGLING EVENT.

In the 1960s, Air Force officials denied that the “Estimate of the Situation” document ever existed. Those who vouch for its authenticity, however, say the report was inspired by a 1948 UFO sighting in Alabama, after two experienced pilots saw a torpedo-shaped “glowing object” zip past their aircraft and rocket into the clouds. The report shocked and baffled many of Project SIGN’s researchers, though scientists would later claim the sighting was consistent with a bolide, or bright meteor.

3. “BLUE BOOK” WAS NAMED AFTER A COLLEGE TESTING STAPLE.

Whether UFOs are extraterrestrial in origin is debatable. What’s undeniable is that, during the 1950s, people routinely spotted (or thought they spotted) objects flying over the United States—and it was the onus of the U.S. military to figure out what they were and whether they posed any danger. Blue Book would earn its name because, at the time, Air Force officials equated studying the phenomenon with preparing for a collegiate “blue book” final exam.

4. OFFICIALS DEVELOPED A SPECIAL PROTOCOL FOR HANDLING UFO SIGHTINGS.

A central part of Project Blue Book was the creation of a standardized questionnaire for UFO sightings. Some sample prompts: “Draw a picture that will show the shape of the object or objects … What was the condition of the sky? … Did the object: Suddenly speed up and rush away at any time? Change shape? Flicker, throb, or pulsate?” Eventually, every U.S. Air Force base ended up designating a special officer to collect these UFO reports.

5. THOUSANDS OF REPORTS WERE COLLECTED—AND SOME HAVEN’T BEEN EXPLAINED.

By the time Project Blue Book was closed, officials had gathered 12,618 UFO reports. Of those, 701 were never explained. Nearly half of those unidentified UFOs appeared in 1952 when a whopping 1501 UFOs were sighted. (Interestingly, that following year, it became a crime for military personnel to discuss classified UFO reports with the public; the risk of breaking the law could mean up to two years imprisonment.)

6. PROJECT BLUE BOOK SAW FIVE LEADERSHIP CHANGES.

Each person in command saw the purpose of Project Blue Book differently. Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, for example, treated the job as a serious scientific quest and is often lauded as the project’s most impartial leader. (Notably, he is responsible for coining the term UFO.) Major Hector Quintanilla, who took over the project in 1963, was more interested in turning Blue Book into a PR front and focused on quelling the public’s interest in UFOs—a desire that would eventually lead to charges of a government cover-up.

7. BLUE BOOK MADE SUCH BAD SCIENTIFIC MISTAKES THAT CONGRESS HAD TO GET INVOLVED.

In 1965, Oklahoma Police, the Tinker Air Force Base, and a local meteorologist using weather radar independently tracked four unexplained flying objects. Under Quintanilla’s advisement, Project Blue Book would claim that these witnesses had simply observed the planet Jupiter. The problem with this explanation? Jupiter wasn’t even visible in the night’s sky. “The Air Force must have had its star finder upside-down during August,” Robert Riser, an Oklahoma planetarium director, said at the time. A series of more badly botched scientific explanations eventually led to a congressional hearing.

8. THE PROJECT’S DESIRE TO DISMISS UNIDENTIFIED PHENOMENA BOTHERED ITS SOLE SCIENTIST.

Project Blue Book had one consistent scientific consultant, astronomer Dr. J. Allen Hynek. In 1968, Hynek wrote: “The staff of Blue Book, both in numbers and in scientific training, is grossly inadequate … there is virtually no scientific dialogue between Blue Book and the outside scientific world … The statistical methods employed by Blue Book are nothing less than a travesty” [PDF]. Hynek held Quintanilla in particularly low regard, saying, “Quintanilla’s method was simple: disregard any evidence that was counter to his hypothesis.”

9. IN 2007, A NEW GOVERNMENT INQUIRY INTO UFOS WAS LAUNCHED.

Between 2007 and 2012, the U.S. government spent $22 million on a new UFO study called the “Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program.” (Nowadays, UFOs are called UAPs, or “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena”: You can watch one here.) This January, more than three dozen of the program’s studies became publicly available, revealing the government’s interest in everything from warp drives to invisibility cloaks.

Conspiracy Theories

Rover Curiosity photographs of “ancient structures” on Mars partly hidden by NASA

The images we show you represent one of the greatest discoveries so far made by the researcher and hunter of spatial anomalies Paranormal Crucible. According to the researcher, what was found on Mars, through photographs taken by the Rover Curiosity, are convincing proof that Mars had an intelligent life in its distant past.

Here is what is stated by Paranormal Crucible in the analysis of the ancient ruins of Mars;

The raw image that was released by NASA appears to have been tampered with, we can see signs of blurring in places as well as two black squares, which NASA claim are dead pixels, but are they hiding something far more compelling, we may never find out, so lets concentrate on what we can see.

This particular image took quite allot of work, the processing alone took several hours and the enhancement work took a little longer, but the results were worth it.

The obvious geometric shapes in the enhanced image clearly indicate intelligent design, we can see a partially buried wall structure with a small pillar which leads down a small embankment, possibly a buried stairway, to a set of stairs, these stairs lead us onto an obvious courtyard which is covered in martian soil or sand.

“At the side of the courtyard is a large square plinth with a tall stone pillar which appears to have been broken off at the mid section, this is indicative of an ancient abode, as seen in the ancient Roman and Greek period.

I have highlighted nine points of interest in the enhanced image below, and they are very compelling in my opinion.

These possible ruins validate for me that an ancient martian civilization once existed on mars and were very similar to the ancient Romans, not only in customs but in architecture also.

From my standpoint they look like the remains of a domus or villa, a fairly large home usually single storey that had a large courtyard, stone pillars, a garden and numerous rooms, some even had a pool depending how wealthy the owners were.

Until an independent manned mission is sent to mars we may never know the full truth about past life on this mysterious planet, and i think its pretty clear that NASA is more interested in analyzing rock samples than exploring the clear artifacts that have been inadvertently discovered by the rovers.

But hopefully one day that attitude will change, and the real truth about mars and its history, will finally be revealed.

Conspiracy Theories

NASA prohibits experiences of extraterrestrial life detection

Yes, there is life on Mars, and NASA has known this for four decades. Their own Viking experiment confirmed the presence of life on Mars, but instead of sharing this groundbreaking discovery with the world, NASA chose to bury the truth and hide its science for decades.

Now, the former NASA engineer who designed the experiment that confirmed the presence of life on Mars is speaking out. His name is Gilbert V. Levin, and in a new op-ed published in Scientific American, he lays out his belief that life was already confirmed on Mars in the 1970s.

“I was fortunate to have participated in that historic adventure as experimenter of the Labeled Release (LR) life detection experiment on NASA’s spectacular Viking mission to Mars in 1976,” writes Levin. “On July 30, 1976, the LR returned its initial results from Mars. Amazingly, they were positive. As the experiment progressed, a total of four positive results, supported by five varied controls, streamed down from the twin Viking spacecraft landed some 4,000 miles apart. The data curves signaled the detection of microbial respiration on the Red Planet. The curves from Mars were similar to those produced by LR tests of soils on Earth.”

As word of the discovery spread, many other scientists around the world began to rejoice. Levin even received a personal phone call from Carl Sagan, congratulating him on the discovery.

But within hours, NASA buried the results and swept it all under the rug, claiming the mass spec instrument hadn’t detected life at all.

NASA banned any experiment that could confirm life on Mars

From that day, NASA has banned life detection experiments on missions to Mars in order to continue scientific fraud.

Levin writes:

Inexplicably, over the 43 years since Viking, none of NASA’s subsequent Mars landers has carried a life detection instrument to follow up on these exciting results

In truth, NASA is a fraudulent “science” organization that has, for four decades, pushed the false narrative that there is no life on Mars. The cover-up has been well coordinated and aggressively enforced. And since it’s impossible for private citizens to visit Mars and see for themselves, it’s difficult for anyone to prove that NASA has been lying all these years.

But now new evidence is surfacing that NASA has been blatantly lying all along… not just about microbial life on Mars but even about the existence of a Martian atmosphere that could support life.

NASA to send scout helicopter to Mars, proving there’s an atmosphere

Earlier this year, the corporate media began reporting that NASA was sending a scout helicopter to Mars as part of the 2020 lander mission. This helicopter, touted by NASA administrator Bridenstine, is a dual rotor, solar-powered helicopter designed to map terrain for the lander rover. See this UPI story as an example of what’s being reported by the scientifically illiterate media:

NASA engineers have installed the miniature helicopter on the space agency’s Mars 2020 rover. The Mars Helicopter, nicknamed Scout, will be the first aircraft to fly on another planet. “For the first time, we are going to fly a helicopter on another world with the Mars Helicopter,” Bridenstine said in March.

The problem with this story? According to NASA and the entire news media, Mars has virtually no atmosphere. Obviously, rotor-powered aircraft don’t function without an atmosphere, since they can’t produce lift in a vacuum.

According to NASA, the atmosphere on Mars is only 600 Pascals at ground level. Earth’s atmosphere at sea level is 101,000 Pascals, and even with that “thickness” of air, it’s still difficult to get a mechanical craft of the ground using spinning rotors.

Yet according to NASA, we’re supposed to believe that a dual-rotor helicopter will fly in virtually no atmosphere, powered by on-board solar panels and batteries, somehow defying gravity that’s 38% of Earth’s gravity with an atmosphere that’s only 0.6% as thick.

Any aeronautical engineer will tell you that’s impossible. If rotors worked in a vacuum, then the space shuttle would have a giant propeller mounted on its nose, doing away with all the rocket thrusters.

The only way a helicopter will fly on Mars is if there’s an atmosphere to create lift when the rotors spin. This isn’t rocket science. In fact, it doesn’t involve rockets at all. Propellers don’t work in a vacuum.

NASA is faking helicopter “research” with ridiculous videos

To try to convince us all that they have developed a helicopter that can fly in (nearly) a vacuum, NASA has released some of the most hilarious, laughable video footage we’ve ever seen.

As you can see from the following video snippet, NASA has developed a self-crashing helicopter that can only bounce and crash. The fact that NASA wants us to believe this is going to be loaded up with imaging and telemetry equipment — plus solar panels and batteries — is absurd. It’s like a bad Saturday Night Live skit. Notice, too that this “helicopter” isn’t even carrying batteries and appears to be receiving its power through a tether that’s attached to the center of the floor.

Now, NASA seems to be in the business of faking its announcements, too. If we are to believe NASA, there’s no life on Mars and helicopters fly in vacuums.

Conspiracy Theories

COMET 67P, the “Transmission of Extraterrestrial Sounds” comes from an unknown base visible on the Comet

As reported long ago by the famous British tabloid METRO, UFO conspiracy theorists are on the alert after hearing the bizarre “alien” sounds emanating from the organic Comet 67P organic  – made famous by the Rosetta mission. Some UFO researchers are convinced that it is not the Comet that emits these unknown sounds, but it is an Extraterrestrial Transmission sent by an alien base that is clearly visible on the celestial body, and the images taken by the Rosetta Probe confirm it.

The 67P comet is one of the most famous and mysterious objects in the Kuiper belt, after the Rosetta mission collected samples from its icy surface in 2014. Rosetta’s incredible discoveries showed that organic molecules and oxygen existed in the dust emitted by the Comet 67P. Now the comet is again at the center of the mystery, after an unknown audio source has been recorded by NASA thanks to Rosetta. For UFO researchers, this is proof that an unknown transmission was sent from an extraterrestrial structure visible in the images taken by the NASA space probe. This structure is quite large and has two antennas that are visible in the photographs below.

In the images taken by the NASA space probe, a fairly large structure can be seen which has two antennas that are visible in the photo

The otherworldly sound, composed of oscillating analogue noises, has been brought to light by UFO researcher Scott C Waring. “I listened to and recorded the sounds picked up by the 67P comet and slowed them down so I could listen to them better,” Waring wrote. “I really feel it contains an alien message.”

Enlargement of the unknown object photographed on Comet 67P

UFO hunters long ago identified a mysterious object on the surface of the comet 67P / Churyumov-Gerasimenko, which would be evidence of the existence of alien underground structures, or better, alien outposts. The UFO researchers are convinced that these structures or protuberances that protrude from the surface of the comet, could be similar to antennas that transmit on frequencies that are not perceived on Earth, that is, on frequency bands still not accessible to us. These sound frequencies are those recorded by the Rosetta probe, composed of oscillating analogue noises.

According to the Ufologists, this sound transmission recorded on the Comet 67P is the further proof (after the discovery of the alien base with three antennas) that the comet could have the function of an ALIEN RADIAL, which is used to define one or more routes of any spaceships coming from other star systems. Other ufologists speculate that this base could be an extraterrestrial mining structure.
