The Truth about Those “Alien Alloys” in The New York Times UFO Story

Is the government really stockpiling materials in a Nevada building that scientists cannot identify?

What to make of a Las Vegas building full of unidentified alloys?

The New York Times published a stunning story (Dec. 16) revealing that the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) had, between 2007 and 2012, funded a $22 million program for investigating UFOs. The story included three revelations that were tailored to blow readers’ minds:

1. Many high-ranking people in the federal government believe aliens have visited planet Earth.

2. Military pilots have recorded videos of UFOs with capabilities that seem to outstrip all known human aircraft, changing direction and accelerating in ways no fighter jet or helicopter could ever accomplish.

3. In a group of buildings in Las Vegas, the government stockpiles alloys and other materials believed to be associated with UFOs.

Points one and two are weird, but not all that compelling on their own: The world already knew that plenty of smart folks believe in alien visitors, and that pilots sometimes encounter strange phenomena in the upper atmosphere – phenomena explained by entities other than space aliens, such as a weather balloon, a rocket launch or even a solar eruption.

Point No. 3, though – those buildings full of alloys and other materials – that’s a little harder to hand wave away. Is there really a DOD cache full of materials from out of this world?

One of the authors of the Times report, Ralph Blumenthal, had this to say on MSNBC about the alloys: “They have, as we reported in the paper, some material from these objects that is being studied so that scientists can find what accounts for their amazing properties, this technology of these objects, whatever they are.” When asked what the materials were, Blumenthal responded, “They don’t know. They’re studying it, but it’s some kind of compound that they don’t recognize.”

Here’s the thing, though: The chemists and metallurgists Live Science spoke to – experts in identifying unusual alloys – don’t buy it.

“I don’t think it’s plausible that there’s any alloys that we can’t identify,” Richard Sachleben, a retired chemist and member of the American Chemical Society’s panel of experts, told Live Science. “My opinion? That’s quite impossible.”

Alloys are mixtures of different kinds of elemental metals. They’re very common – in fact, Sachleben said, they’re more common on Earth than pure elemental metals are – and very well understood. Brass is an alloy. So is steel. Even most naturally occurring gold on Earth is an alloy made up of elemental gold mixed with other metals, like silver or copper. [8 Important Elements You’ve Never Heard Of]

“There are databases of all known phases [of metal], including alloys,” May Nyman, a professor in the Oregon State University Department of Chemistry, told Live Science. Those databases include straightforward techniques for identifying metal alloys.

If an unknown alloy appeared, Nyman said it would be relatively simple to figure out what it was made of.

For crystalline alloys – those in which the mixture of atoms forms an ordered structure – researchers use a technique called X-ray diffraction, Nyman said.

“The X-ray’s wavelength is about the same size as the distance between the atoms [of crystalline alloys],” Nyman said, “so that means when the X-rays go into a well-ordered material, they diffract [change shape and intensity] – and from that diffraction [pattern] you can get information that tells you the distance between the atoms, what the atoms are, and how well-ordered the atoms are. It tells you all about the arrangement of your atoms.”

With noncrystalline, amorphous alloys, the process is a bit different, but not by much.

“These are all very standard techniques in research labs, so if we had such mysterious metals, you could take it to any university where research is done, and they could tell you what are the elements and something about the crystalline phase within a few hours,” Nyman said.

Sachleben agreed.

“There are no alloys that are sitting in some warehouse that we cannot figure out what they are. In fact, it’s pretty simple, and any reasonably good metallurgical grad student can do it for you,” he said.

Nyman said that if metals did fall from some mysterious aircraft, some forensics experiments would quickly answer a lot of questions about that aircraft. [UFO Mysteries: These Sightings Have Never Been Solved]

“How has the hunk of metal changed?” Nyman said. “From my scientist’s perspective, that’s the kind of question I’d be asking. Maybe, if it has to do with world politics, and we want to know where the metal comes from, maybe there’s some analysis that can lead you to where it was mined, or what country uses that particular alloy, that kind of thing.”

If the aircraft had come from space, Nyman said, that travel would leave telltale signs in the metal as well, in the form of spacefaring debris and ionization (changes to the electrical charges of the substance’s atoms).

Even if a chunk of alloy that hadn’t been seen before did fall to Earth from outer space, both Nyman and Sachleben agreed that it wouldn’t necessarily have come from an alien craft. In fact, Sachleben said, alloys strike the planet regularly – space-traversing alloys like those found in fairly common nickel-iron meteorites – leaving behind telltale signs. The meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs was even identified by the rare-Earth metals it left behind in certain geological formations in Earth’s crust.

It’s important to point out that while Blumenthal did go on cable news and say the alloys were unidentifiable mysteries, helping to spur speculation, that’s not what his article actually stated. Here’s the full quote from Saturday’s piece:

“The company [involved in the DOD research] modified buildings in Las Vegas for the storage of metal alloys and other materials that … program contractors said had been recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena. Researchers also studied people who said they had experienced physical effects from encounters with the objects and examined them for any physiological changes. In addition, researchers spoke to military service members who had reported sightings of strange aircraft.”

From this statement, there’s no actual sign that there’s anything unusual about the alloys themselves. All the Times wrote was that the DOD researchers tasked with finding weird UFO stuff collected some metal, interviewed some people who had claimed startling experiences with it, and decided that it was UFO-related.

In an email to Live Science regarding these metal alloys, Blumenthal said, “We printed as much as we were able to verify. Can’t go beyond that.”

As for whether there’s an explanation at least for the metals themselves, Sachleben said: “There’s not as many mysteries in science as people like to think. It’s not like we know everything – we don’t know everything. But most things we know enough about to know what we don’t know.”

Aliens & UFO's

Aliens deactivated nuclear weapons to show us how useless they are

As far back as in 2008, a group of former Air Force officers shared their incredible accounts of UFOs allegedly demonstrating a distinct interest in nuclear weapons sites; since then, lobbyists have urged heightened efforts to force the US government to declassify all it knows about extraterrestrials.

Aliens

Aliens have been turning our nuclear weapons on and off to demonstrate how “useless” they are against them, claims an activist seeking to end the “government ET truth embargo”, reports Daily Star Online.

Stephen Bassett is the founder of Paradigm Research Group (PRG), which has been engaged in a tireless effort to shed light on the “truth” about extraterrestrials and UFOs.

Bassett claims that several witnesses have observed Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, as he calls them, in line with the US Navy’s official definition, manipulating our own nuclear weapons with ease and even “turning them off”.

However, the expert is quick to downplay any fears that this constitutes a threat to humanity, saying this actually shows us that ETs and Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) support nuclear disarmament.

They turned off our nuclear weapons repeatedly; does that mean they are bad? The witnesses to the events, and there are many, generally believe that it is not an ominous thing but rather a message.

It wasn’t a threat but a message that these things are useless. [As if they’re saying] “they certainly are useless against us, all you are going to do is kill yourselves and we can’t turn them off at will, why don’t you just get rid of them?” That’s how the witnesses, by and large the majority, have interpreted this

This is by far not the first time it has been claimed that aliens have been shutting down nukes and showing an interest in military bases.

An excerpt from the military UFO sighting project, Blue book, dating from the 1960s: “Very bright light with jagged edges. Approximately round in shape, half the size of the full moon. Approximately 1/3 speed of a shooting star. ”

Former US Air Force lieutenant Bob Jacobs was one of a group of former Air Force officers, that also included Robert Salas, who appeared back in 2008 on CNN’s Larry King Live to make the claim that UFOs activated missile systems at five Air Force Bases in five different states, but the United States government had reportedly covered up the information.

Bob Salas, a former US Air Force captain, and Bob Jamison, a former US Air Force officer, made the sensational claim that during a missile test, an object “shot a beam of light at the warhead” in what has been called the 1967 Malmstrom AFB UFO incident, when missiles in the middle of Montana were reportedly rendered temporarily inoperable.

Salas said:

The Air Force investigated this secretly, I believe through 1972. I think this thing was not of this Earth. I’m convinced it was not built here, because it was able to send signals to each of our missiles separately. The guidance and control equipment was upset in each one

He was asked, he says, by commanders to sign a non-disclosure document in which he pledged to never talk about the incident.

Bob Jacobs, a former US Air Force photographic instrumentation officer, said a UFO appeared in a film he filmed in 1954 at Vandenberg Air Force Base and was later confiscated by CIA agents.

Stephen Bassett previously told Daily Star Online that NASA is forced by the US government to shut down the ISS live feed when aliens put in an appearance.

Bassett, who has long campaigned for the government to end its alleged embargo on the truth about extraterrestrial life, recently said NASA has essentially its “hands tied” when it comes to revealing the appearance of UFOs.

The executive director of Paradigm Research Group, founded in 1996, Bassett has been working to end what he claims is a government-imposed embargo on the truth behind the so-called “UFO” phenomenon.

Unique UFO landing photos have appeared in Brazil

In 1995, in Brazil, there is a rare incident where a UFO leaves behind not only scared eyewitnesses but also material traces of its presence.

But, just a few days ago, photos of the incident were posted to the public for public access. Previously, only some Brazilian experts and ufologists had seen the photos.

On October 1, 1995, fishermen Fernando Bessera and Wilson da Silva Oliveira were fishing in their boat on the island of Ilha de Mayor, off the coast of Sao Paulo. Suddenly, they saw a large object in the shape of a disk that emitted a bright yellow light over their heads.

At first, the fishermen took the object for a balloon, but when that disk landed on an island not far from them, they realized that it was something completely different.

The frightened fishermen immediately set sail from the place. They told their loved ones about what they saw. The next day, when the two fishermen with other curious people returned to the place, they saw strange imprints on the mud and grass.

Wilson says:

“I almost died of fear and immediately hid at the bottom of the boat …!”

Fernando shares:

“When the light was over our heads, the object changed direction and flew to the island. Then it landed on it. Then we tried to start the boat’s engine. Nothing happened. About ten times we tried, and it wasn’t until after that tenth attempt that the engine finally went to work and we set sail from there as quickly as possible. “

That night, both fishermen could not sleep in fear, and in the morning, could not resist not returning to the island and see if this object is still there. The site was gone, but there were many strange traces everywhere.

Including, a 5.5m rounded “track” where all the grass was dried and twisted clockwise.

Traces were found, most likely from the “chariots” of the disc. They are four rectangular concave tracks, each measuring 10 cm by 15 cm, with a depth of 2 cm in the ground.

Apparently, the flying object was small and not too heavy.

These days, this can be attributed to a large drone. However, nothing like this happened in 1995.

A few days later, a sensational UFO landing near Sao Paulo was published in the Brazilian Tribune. Local investigators of anomalous phenomena arrive at the site, take photos, take samples of soil and grass.

Later, they classify this case as a Close Encounter of the second type in the Heinek Classification. They consider the problems with the engine of the boat as a typical effect of electromagnetic UFO radiation on the operation of electronics. Also, severe corrosion of engine parts was detected, and there was none before the accident.

At the same time, the object had some physiological effect on the eyewitnesses themselves, probably using the same radiation. Both fishermen complained of skin and eye irritation for several days after the encounter.

Nothing unusual was found in the soil samples taken from the place of the disk landing. But when plant seeds were planted in it, they germinated very quickly. At the same time, the same seeds planted in soil taken outside the landing zone did not sprout at all during this time.

It is also revealed that this is neither a small aircraft nor a helicopter. Santos Air Force Base stated that at that time, no aircraft were flying in those areas.

Update on the Nazca 3-Finger Mummies Scientific Study

Despite the efforts of government officials, mummies and skeptics around the world, scientists and researchers trying to study Nazca’s mysterious three-fingered mummies continue to fight for the world’s right to see what these preserved beings are.

Update on the Nazca 3-Finger Mummies Scientific Study

On November 6, 2019, four of them made presentations at the VI International Research Congress, organized by the National University San Luis Gonzaga – the university that now owns the three-finger mummies. Fortunately for the uninvited (us, for example), Giorgio Piacenza of ExoNews (Instituto Exopolitica News Service) attended the conference and was able to interview some of the university’s presenters, participants and staff.

Biologist José da Cruz Ríos López, who participated in historical and DNA testing on mummies, confirmed to Piacenza that the research follows objective scientific principles and is not involved in any monetary gain. He reiterated that it would be impossible to create these three-finger mummies from human and / or animal parts. See the interview below:

In his interview with Piacenza, the University’s vice president of research, Dr. Martin Alarcón Quispe talks about protecting the three-fingered mummies from skeptics, including the Peruvian Ministry of Culture, while still providing access to serious scientific researchers and members of the public. The vice president said the mummies have reptile skin that could help them survive in the desert, and their DNA does not correspond to any known species. However, he wants the process to be scientific, regardless of the final results and determinations. Watch:

Then Dr. Galeckii Dimitri from Russia who also confirmed that his research found that the mummies could not have been assembled and in his mind were not fakes. Although they have some human traits, he doesn’t believe they’re human. The skin on the mummies is continuous, not pieced together. He found no evidence of alterations, either physical or chemical, to the mummies, and confirmed that not only were egg-like things seen by X-ray inside the bodies, they were surrounded by a membrane.. Video below:

Piacenza spoke with Dr. Robert E. Farrell, an engineering professor and researcher with an interest in UFO / UFO, as well as three-finger mummies. For him, CAT scans prove that they are non-human beings, possibly from another planet. He also explains how carbon dating can determine the age of Maria, the largest of the mummies, even if she came from another planet. Watch:

Finally, Piacenza includes an interview with someone who has been involved with the three-finger mummies since the discovery was announced – investigative reporter Jaime Maussan. He summarizes many of the unusual findings about the mummies and the resistance to this research that could change human history. Watch it below:

If you’re looking for definitive proof that these three-finger mummies were once aliens, the interviews won’t provide them. However, data continues to accumulate, saying that they’re something other than human and not fakes.…
