The Pentagon has reportedly recovered metal alloys from unidentified flying objects that scientists "do not recognise”.
Materials, which are alleged to have “amazing properties”, are being stored in modified buildings in Las Vegas, the New York Times reports.
The US Department of Defence (DoD) has admitted to a secret $22m (£15m) programme, which ran between 2007 and 2012, that was tasked with investigating reports of UFOs.
“They have some material from these objects that is being studied, so that scientists can try to figure out what accounts for their amazing properties,” Ralf Blumenthal, one of the authors of the New York Times report, told MSNBC.
Mr Blumenthal said the DoD “do not know” what the materials are made of.
“It’s some sort of compound they do not recognise,” he added.
The Pentagon refused to comment when contacted by The Independent.
Old news. Does Roswell ring a bell? The questions are, why now, and where is this all going? I hope I'm wrong about an official White House-Pentagon press conference announcing the reality of the ET presence not ever happening. But in the unlikely event, something like that should happen, one would have good reason to be very suspicious. I don't ascribe to the conspiratorial notion of the government-Deep State faking an alien invasion scenario ('ProjectBlue Beam') in order to unify the planet under a one world ruling body. I know better. The Brookings Institute study, "Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs," made it clear that acknowledgment of the ET presence on Earth would potentially be catastrophically disruptive to society. What you don't know about that study, is that they had damn good reasons to come to that conclusion. To read more, click here.
