More Detail On The Secret UFO Study

Documents prove secret UFO study based in Nevada

LAS VEGAS - UFO investigators are hoping to obtain a treasure trove of Pentagon documents that were generated by a once-secret military study of flying saucers and other weird aircraft.

The government confirms there was a UFO program. It supposedly ended in 2012, but the Pentagon has not yet released any reports or files.

The I-Team gives the first look at documents which prove the UFO study was real and was based in southern Nevada.

Luis Elizondo

Last October, former intelligence officer Luis Elizondo revealed he'd been in charge of a secret Pentagon project that studied UFOs. The story picked up steam two months later when the New York Times reported the name of the program AATIP or Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. At the same time, two once-classified videos were released. 

"I received communication from a man who worked for one of the defense agencies, a Ph.D. in physics and math. He said 'I know everything about rockets but I don't know what these things are,'" said Sen. Harry Reid.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid started a dialogue with a senior scientist working for the Defense Intelligence Agency. Alarmed that no one was paying attention to dramatic intrusions by unknown aircraft, Reid and colleagues secured funding for an ongoing study, but it wasn't called AATIP. The original acronym was AAWSAP or Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications Program.

In Aug. 2008, DIA posted a solicitation for bids. Weeks later, the contract was awarded to Bigelow Aerospace, the initial amount was $10 million. It required Bigelow to provide a facility that qualified for top secret work. Harry Reid did not influence the selection process.

"There was no direct contract vehicle for Senator Reid to take care of a buddy over here in a stake for a contract. That's complete nonsense," Elizondo said.

Space entrepreneur Robert Bigelow's interest in exotic subjects was as obvious as his company logo. He'd spent years -- and millions of dollars -- on his own scientific study of UFOs and related topics. For the DIA contract, he created BAASS, a separate entity housed within his aerospace plant. He hired a team of 46 scientists and investigators, along with dozens of other support personnel.

The agreement with DIA did not mention UFOs at all. It used more generic terms such as future threats and breakthrough technologies, and specified 12 focal points including, lift, propulsion, materials, versions of stealth as well as human interface and human effects, meaning Bigelow's team would study people who reported unusual experiences beyond seeing UFOs.

A ranch in Utah, known for decades as the site of bizarre encounters, became a living lab for the study.

The study produced volumes of highly technical scientific reports including projections about warp drives and antigravity propulsion.

"These studies are so loaded with information," Sen. Reid said. "One thing we learned is over the decades a lot of things happen there's no explanation for. Well, there are now."

But at the Pentagon, there was pushback. Some worried the study would become an embarrassment if the word got out. Others opposed it on religious grounds. Bigelow funded it himself for a year but AAWSAP came to an end after 2011. Elizondo, who had interacted with the study from the Pentagon, was assigned to continue the work, but he chose a smaller focus, limited to military encounters with unknown aircraft. his effort, dubbed AATIP, survived by keeping a low profile. Elizondo relied on an informal network of colleagues to investigate cases that came in.

"There were other folks related to our effort," Elizondo said. "It is a confederated approach so you had folks in the Navy, in DIA, in pockets here and there. We worked collectivel

Lines Of UFO Evidences Lead Back To Bigelow Aerospace

LAS VEGAS - BAASS (Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies) broke new ground in professionalism by hiring, training and deploying 50 full-time staff comprising retired military intelligence and law enforcement officers, PhD level scientists, engineers, technicians, analysts, translators, and project managers to create the largest multi-disciplinary full-time team in history to investigate the UFO topic.
The investigations by BAASS provided new lines of evidence showing that the UFO phenomenon was a lot more than nuts and bolts machines that interacted with military aircraft. The phenomenon also involved a whole panoply of diverse activity that included bizarre creatures, poltergeist activity, invisible entities, orbs of light, animal and human injuries and much more. The exclusive focus on nuts and bolts machines could be considered myopic and unproductive in solving the larger mystery of UFOs.
One of the major successes of BAASS was in adopting the novel approach of utilizing the human body as a readout system for dissecting interactions with the UFO phenomenon. This novel approach aimed to circumvent the increasing evidence of deception and subterfuge by the UFO phenomenon in that multiple eyewitnesses co-located in the same vicinity frequently reported seeing widely different events. The evidence was multiplying that the UFO phenomenon was capable of manipulating and distorting human perception and therefore eyewitness testimony of UFO activity was becoming increasingly untrustworthy.

One of the major successes of BAASS was in adopting the novel approach of utilizing the human body as a readout system for dissecting interactions with the UFO phenomenon.
The BAASS approach was to view the human body as a readout system for UFO effects by utilizing forensic technology, the tools of immunology, cell biology, genomics and neuroanatomy for in depth study of the effects of UFOs on humans. This approach marked a dramatic shift away from the traditional norms of relying on eyewitness testimony as the central evidentiary arm in UFO investigations. The approach aimed to bypass UFO deception and manipulation of human perception by utilizing molecular forensics to decipher the biological consequences of the phenomenon.
The result of applying this new approach was a revolution in delineating the threat level of UFOs.

Four Unexplained UFO Sightings

Four Unexplained UFO Sighting in Indiana

The incredible story of a young Lafayette, Indiana man bicycling near Stockwell the night of May 1, 1897, predates by a full half-century the UFO or "flying saucer" stories that bombarded America in the summer of 1947.

There is simply no explanation for the man's vision of two human-looking creatures outside a cigar-shaped airship which sped into the night, lights blinking, the instant he was seen.

Nor have there ever been satisfactory explanations for many other UFO reports from America and all regions of the world.

There have been four major UFO episodes reported to authorities in the Lafayette area since that 1897 account.

The four were compressed between the years 1947 and 1954.

Here they are: 

Just after midnight the morning of Sunday, July 15, 1947, a Lafayette man named Forrest Hooper, who then lived at 535 S. 4th St., was returning to Lafayette from Logansport.

He was in his car, traveling southwesterly on Indiana 25, when, he said, he noticed a fast-traveling red glow, which he thought at first to be a falling meteor.

Hooper said the glow seemed to be coming from the vicinity of Logansport. But it did not fall to the ground like a meteor.

Instead it traveled along at high speed until it disappeared from view. It had a strange, dark red glow in the form of a disc as it journeyed across the sky.

Hooper added that the object moved too fast to enable him to get any better look, and its speed prevented him from getting much of an impression as to its size.

On Nov. 19, 1951, a "flying saucer" trailed by two Air Force jets was reported flying east over the Elston area about 9 a.m. by Carl Hartman, who lived two miles south of Lafayette on Shadeland Rd.

He said he was coming out of his barn when he looked up and saw "a great big silver disc flying east at jet speed."

Its flat side was to the ground, he said, and its groundside shape was generally round except for a rectangular protuberance at the rear.

The jet planes, he said, left vapor trails; the flying disc none.

A check at the Civil Aeronautics Authority office at Purdue University brought the information that no jet planes had checked in by radio at that hour, but that it was possible that two were in the area since some jets are almost constantly in this territory.

The CAA representative, Raymond King, said he had no information or reports on a disc or the two planes.

At 9:10 p.m. Saturday July 12, 1952, dozens of reports from residents of Tippecanoe, Clinton and Montgomery counties poured in, telling of a fiery object whizzing across the skies.

It was the most widely reported "flying saucer" since the UFO "craze" began in 1947.

Among the observers were Mr. and Mrs. J.F. Shriner, Rt. 7, and their guests, Mr. and Mrs. John Arnold, Lafayette, who were on the side porch of the Shriner home.

Mrs. Shriner said the object was shaped something like a funnel with the small end leading and was brightly luminescent. It looked like a shiny fish tail with flames shooting out the back. It was overhead at about 2,500 for five or six seconds.

When it went over the house it appeared to be headed northwest; then, when it appeared to be over the Purdue campus, it headed southwest. It appeared to be smaller than an airplane, the observers said.

Shortly before 9;30 p.m., Indianapolis residents reported sighting the flying object.

At Purdue Airport, the CAA officer said observers there had seen no flying funnel, but said they had received many reports of it, especially from Indianapolis.

UFO reports over the decades always have seemed to be more "credible" when turned in by people like airline pilots or policemen.

Lafayette's most spectacular UFO account came from a state trooper, who saw its eerie light near Clarks Hill in 1954, and tried to follow it.

The Secrets Of Australia's Pine Gap UFO Base


Dark Journalist continues the groundbreaking X-SERIES that follows the X Steganography through the history of Political and Covert groups coordinating in a stealth fashion the secret work of the UFO File. 

Pine Gap Secrets
In this special part 8 episode Dark Journalist will go deep into the secret US Intel base in Australian called Pine Gap that has been shrouded in mystery since its development in creation in 1966. He also examines the roots of mystery school influence in moving the X technologies through the system in a stealth manner and the connection of Psychic Jeane Dixon to the US Presidency and Masonic Secrets including the Time Capsule placed at the Base of the Mysterious DC Obelisk from Egypt.

A Wrinkle in Time: Esoteric Circle X Fairy Tale
The successful Sci-fi adventure film featuring Oprah as an inter dimensional being was actually based on a children’s Book that told the story of a mysterious Physicist who gets caught in a dimensional warp while doing research for the US Government and whose daughter attempts to find answers about what happened to him. The story uses symbolic themes that were first made public in the 19th Century in Bulwer Lytton's Vril Books and Rudolf Steiner's Anthroposophy and has direct parallels to reports about the Pine Gap Base and the Ultra Room inside where only 1 person is chosen to enter. The current movie portrays Mrs. Which who resembles the character in Esoteric Circles known as the ‘Dweller on the Threshold' and the adventure takes the Physicist's daughter off-planet in search of him completing the story's esoteric circle.

How to Fix The Drake Equation - Where Are The Extraterrestrials?

The Drake Equation Is Broken; Here's How To Fix It

It's long been theorized that the first detection of extraterrestrial intelligence will come from radio waves. But it's possible that what's out there may go well beyond what anyone has dreamed to look for until now

In 1961, scientist Frank Drake wrote down a simple-looking equation for estimating the number of active, technologically-advanced, communicating civilizations in the Milky Way. From first principles, there was no good way to simply estimate a number, but Drake had the brilliant idea of writing down a large number of parameters that could be estimated, which you would then multiply together. If your numbers were accurate, you'd arrive at an accurate figure for the number of technologically advanced civilizations that humanity could communicate with, within our own galaxy, at any given moment. It's a brilliant idea in concept, but one that's become less and less useful as we've learned more about our Universe. As it stands today, the Drake equation is broken, but we know enough about the Universe to construct an even better framework.
The Drake equation, to be specific, said that the number of civilizations (N) we have at any given time within our galaxy, is equal to the product of seven different unknown quantities from astronomy, geology, biology, and anthropology, each of which builds off of the previous element. They are:
  1. R, the average rate of star formation,
  2. fp, the fraction of stars with planets,
  3. ne the average number stars-with-planets that have one that could support life,
  4. fl, the fraction of those planets that developed life,
  5. fi, the fraction of life-bearing planets that developed intelligent life,
  6. fc, the fraction of these intelligence-having planets that are technologically communicative across interstellar space, and
  7. L, the length of time such a civilization can broadcast-or-listen.
Multiply these numbers all together, in theory, and that will give you the number of technologically advanced, broadcasting civilizations we have in the Milky Way today.
Only, there are huge problems with this setup. There are a number of unspoken assumptions that simply writing down the equation this way makes, that simply don't reflect reality. Problems for its modern-day usefulness include:
  • The fact that the equation was written before the Big Bang was validated and the Steady State model was disfavored.
  • The equation assumes that only one planet per star system could support life.
  • That intelligent, technologically advanced life will never spread to other worlds.
  • And that broadcasting-and-listening-for radio signals is the method by which an intelligent species would choose to communicate across interstellar space.
That last assumption, in ; box-sizing: border-box; font-family: Georgia, Cambria, "Times New Roman", Times, serif; font-size: 21px; font-variant-ligatures: common-ligatures; margin-bottom: 1.6rem; margin-top: 1.6rem;"> This doesn't mean, however, that there aren't other worlds out there with intelligent life on them! Despite our uncertainties about what's out there or whether/how they might attempt to search for or contact us, the possibility of intelligent, communicative, or spacefaring extraterrestrials is one of tremendous interest to not only scientists, but all of humanity. Many of the steps of the Drake equation may be problematic, and they contain the major issue that there are huge uncertainties associated with them: so large that they render any conclusion about N, the number of civilizations within our galaxy, meaningless. But it's 2018 now, and there are a huge number of things we know about our galaxy and our Universe that we didn't know in 1961. Here's a better approach.
1.) Ns: the number of stars in our galaxy. Why estimate the rate of star formation when we can simply look at the number of stars we have today? We know how large our galaxy is, how thick it is, how large the central bulge is, and what their mass distribution is. Based on what we can observe with extremely powerful all-sky and pencil-beam (where you look at one narrow region very deeply) surveys, we can simply state that there are between 200 and 400 billion stars in our galaxy. An uncertainty that's only a factor of 2 is pretty good, and tells us that we have a very optimistic starting point: each star has a chance for success. Let's pick the larger number here.
2.) fp: the fraction of stars with planets. This is one we can keep from the original Drake equation, but in the aftermath of Kepler, it isn't all that interesting. Why? Because it's close to 100%! The fraction of stars with planets around them, based on the number of stars we've surveyed and what we've learned about them, is somewhere in the ballpark of at least 80%. To say "the fraction of stars with planets" is 1 is a nice, easy victory for the optimists out there.
Moon and clouds over the Pacific Ocean, as photographed by Frank Borman and James A. Lovell during the Gemini 7 mission. Earth, around our Sun, has the right conditions for life. But what about other stars
3.) fH: the fraction of stars with the right conditions for habitability. This gets more interesting now! Of the major classes of stars, how many of them have worlds that could support life? A star like our Sun — with our Sun's mass, radius, and lifetime — could do it, as evidenced by our existence. But what about a more massive star? At some point, they'll be massive enough to burn through their fuel too quickly, and intelligent life could never arise.
On the other end, a low-mass star may be too unstable, flaring and blowing off a planet's atmosphere, or with little enough ultraviolet light that life cannot arise. We might worry about if there are enough heavy elements to support life on a world, or if a certain location in the galaxy renders the environment too chaotic for life. These may be unknowns, but we can probably safely say that at least a quarter, or 25%, of stars in our galaxy can have a potentially habitable planet.
4.) np: the number of worlds around habitable stars with the right conditions for life. This is something we've learned a tremendous amount about from our exoplanet studies, but tremendous questions remain. What makes a world habitable? In the early solar system, Venus, Earth, and Mars all had similar conditions. In the outer Solar System, worlds like Enceladus and Europa, with sub-surface oceans, may have underwater life. In systems with gas giants at Earth-like locations, large moons could see life arise on them. Although the uncertainties are very large here, I think it's a fair estimate to say that of the stars which can have a potentially habitable world, on average there will be one world that clearly has the best chance for life. That's the world we're interested in, and so we'll say np = 1.
At this point, by the way, we can multiply those first four numbers together to get an estimate for the number of worlds with good chances at life within our galaxy: 100 billion. That's a promising start.
5.) fl: the fraction of these worlds where life arises. This is a great time to line up with Drake again, because this is one of the great unknown questions in the search for life beyond Earth. Of all the potentially habitable worlds, how many of them take that first incredible step, where life arises from non-life? Or, if primitive life originates in interstellar space, how many worlds see life take hold on the surface, in the oceans, or in the atmosphere? We don't even know the answer for our own Solar System, where it's arguable that we may have as many as 8 other worlds where life arose at some point. Life may be common; optimistically, it may have a 10% chance of arising from non-life. Or, alternatively, it could be exceedingly rare: a one-in-a-million shot or worse.
Signatures of organic, life-giving molecules are found all over the cosmos, including in the largest, nearby star-forming region: the Orion Nebula. Someday soon, we may be able to look for biosignatures in the atmospheres of Earth-sized worlds around other stars.
The uncertainties here are huge, and any number that you can pick is as ill-motivated as any other. Someday in the future, we'll have the capability of performing our first tests, however. When our telescope technology enables us to determine the atmospheric contents of worlds, we can look for the presence or absence of biosignatures like methane, molecular oxygen, and carbon dioxide. It will be indirect evidence, but it should be an incredible step towards inferring whether worlds have life on them or not. If we say there's a 1-in-10,000 chance that a potentially habitable world has life on it, as good a guess as any, that means there are 10 million worlds in the Milky Way where life exists.
6.) fx: the fraction of life-having worlds with complex, differentiated organisms. Defining life as "intelligent" or not is a hazy prospect at best, as even the top scientists still argue over the classification of dolphins, great apes, octopi, and many other organisms as intelligent or not. What no one will argue about, however, is whether an organism is complex and differentiated: with different body parts with different functions and structures, in a macroscopic, multicellular arrangement. It took billions of years of life thriving on Earth until we evolved the first multicellular organism, and then hundreds of millions of years more until we developed gender in reproduction; without both, out-competing single-celled life would be impossible, as they'd out-evolve the larger forms of life.
Again, Earth is our only laboratory for this, but let's be optimistic in the absence of evidence, and assume there's a 1-in-1,000 chance that a world that starts with a primitive, replicating, information-encoding strand of life can lead to something like the Cambrian explosion. That gives us 10,000 worlds in the Milky Way teeming with diverse, multicellular, highly differentiated forms of life. Given the distance between the stars, that means there's likely another planet where this has occurred just a few hundred light years away.
7.) ft: the fraction of those worlds which presently house a scientifically/technologically advanced civilization. This is a superior question to the ones asked by the Drake equation. Who cares if this is the first or the tenth time a technologically advanced civilization arose? Who cares if they're using radio waves? Who cares if they blow themselves up or self-extinct, or whether they have spacefaring ambitions or not? The big question is whether there are extraterrestrials who are intelligent the way we're intelligent, and that means scientifically and technologically advanced.
There's no evidence for this anywhere other than Earth, of course, which means there's a huge range of possibilities. It could be easy, like 1% of them get there, or it could be a freak coincidence that humanity arose at all, and the odds could be more like one-in-a-billion. Here on Earth, it's been about 500,000,000 years since the Cambrian explosion, and we've only had a technologically advanced species on the planet for less than 1,000 years. Assuming humanity lasts for a few thousand more in this state, that means that Earth will have spent 1-in-100,000 of our time with complex, differentiated organisms in a technologically advanced state.
Even with 10,000 such worlds in the Milky Way, there's only approximately a 10% chance, under these estimates, that another scientifically/technologically advanced civilization exists at the same time as us.
Once intelligence, tool use, and curiosity combine in a single species, perhaps interstellar ambitions become inevitable.
But with all that said, it's those last three numbers — flfx, and ft — that have such large uncertainties that make accurate estimates an impossibility right now.
Knowing how many worlds there are out there in the Milky Way with life on them, and finding even one, would have tremendous implications for our existence, and for understanding our place in the Universe. Taking even the next step, and learning that there were complex, differentiated, large organisms on a world, like we have with the fungal, animal, and plant kingdoms on Earth, would revolutionize what's possible. And finally, the chance we'd have to have communication, visitation, and a knowledge exchange with a scientifically or technologically advanced alien species would forever alter the course of humanity. It's all possible, but there's so much more we need to know if we ever want to find out. We must take these steps; the rewards are too great if there's even a chance of learning these answers.
