Man! Bring back von Braun! What happened to Keyhoe?
I don't know why they are so hellbent, other than they're trying to keep everything secret.Why were the generals so intent on neutralizing Fuller? Did they not realize that he was not the only pilot out there who had a story to tell?
Maybe. There are a very few common characteristic between abductee types. Back in the 1951, they knew none. But since then, the boffins have identified that if you have green eyes, being lefty and/or having a RH negative blood type might get you abducted more easily than a common man. I don't think Fuller had any of them, or the producers didn't think to bring it up.Was Fuller special?
LOL. Yeah, I wish it would be real, but no, aliens don't you superpowers. If God blessed you with powers, you have to learn to use them. In the meanwhile you might want toIn addition to the ability to tune into radio waves apparently common to all alien-altered members of the Foo Fighters Club, Fuller could disappear in a flash from the top of a radio tower, start a car with a hand wave and stand motionless while he burned to death. Alien superpowers?
Exactly!Project Blue Book Reimagined.
Episode before last best line: "Hynek, is that Slavic name?" Right on! Red Scare on steroids!Exactly!
Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire!
Hynek and Mimi, now officially members of Team MIB? These people are apparently working independently of both the Air Force and the Soviets. How much of the new arrangement will she spill to her Soviet spy friend?
I can't imagine what that object Hynek was given might be. I was thinking that it should have been checked for radioactivity before they handled it.
The manikins in the test town had a creepy attention to detail. As Capt. Quinn put it, "They're just gonna blow 'em up. Why do they need faces?"
One looked a lot like Mimi's friend. Was that the manikin that was decapitated? I don't recall seeing how that happened.
I was not unhappy about the fate of Mimi's Mrs Kravitz-like nosy neighbor, Donna. May she rest in pieces.
https://www.history.com/news/ufos-green-fireballs-nuclear-facilities-new-mexicoOn February 29, 1949, the Los Alamos, New Mexico Skyliner newspaper ran a piece on what it referred to, in typical newspaper parlance, as “flying saucers”—and a possible conspiracy around them:
“Los Alamos now has flying green lights. These will ‘o wisps seen generally about 2 a.m., have alerted the local constabulary and their presence is being talked about in Santa Fe bars. But local wheels deny any official knowledge of the sky phenomena. Each one passes the buck to another.”
The story ended with, “Have you seen a green light lately?”
In fact, a great many had, and would continue to do so—enough to prompt TIME magazine, in November 1951, to publish a piece on the phenomenon called “Great Balls of Fire.” What makes the multiple sightings of “flying green lights” in New Mexico in 1948 and onward such a significant chapter in UFO history is exactly that—there were multiple sightings.
About the Soviets and the UFO's. Their Roswell Crash had not happened. The KGB didn't believe in the Ariel Phenomenom as their crash happened later. In the sixties. Ever since their intelligence service has been on top of the matter.These people are apparently working independently of both the Air Force and the Soviets. How much of the new arrangement will she spill to her Soviet spy friend?
If you'll do FOIA on US gov UFO files, and you are successful with the request, they'll send you back a CERVIS record that look like this.It should have a subtitle : Project Blue Book Reimagined.
You mean to say the tabloid style rejiggering hype invention I find so entertaining for the show is actually the real facts?If you'll do FOIA on US gov UFO files, and you are successful with the request, they'll send you back a CERVIS record that look like this.
All the US service members, especially Navy and Air Force are demanded to report UFO's and that same practice is happening all around the world. Dr Hynek didn't service under the Project Blue Book, as he was working under Project Sign. TBB was US government attempt to suppress the UFO phenomenom from the public. Some could say it was their PR effort.
Maybe the truth was that the Authorities sh*t in the pants as they realised there was nothing they could do to these other worldly things. I mean back in the fifties they were so scared about the communists that they went through two wars, first Korea and later on in Vietnam that it was stupid.
Maybe they thought back in the fifties that they shouldn't tell anyone that there was nothing they could do and the UFO's/MiB could do whatever they wanted, and if the public knew, they'd be in trouble.
As it's a case today, they cannot admit on knowing anything on the subject, except through stuff like this. Maybe this is their disclosure and the stuff is real. All I know is that the records are real and they demand you to report if you see something. Especially if it's a case of UFOs.
So, if they need to alter the title, I'd like it to be Project Blue Book - The Official Cover Up Story
Based on the real facts. Thing is, after decades of the all the ridicule that been going in the US and world press, somebody put all the case files online and made a searchable database. The people who had been reporting or even given an interview, went and saw what they'd written on the case, and there are number of cases that shows the governt lie.You mean to say the tabloid style rejiggering hype invention I find so entertaining for the show is actually the real facts?
If so that is cool!
https://www.history.com/news/ufo-encounter-florida-desvergers-scoutmaster-burnedOn a humid, August night in 1952, scoutmaster D.S. “Sonny” DesVergers emerged burned and barely coherent from a dense palmetto grove in the South Florida Everglades. He claimed he had encountered an unidentified flying object that discharged a fireball, which left him singed and barely able to see.
Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, chief UFO investigator for the U.S. Air Force, would later label the event “the best hoax in UFO history.” But the DesVergers incident remains one of the most intriguing cases from Project Blue Book, the Air Force’s now-declassified investigations into UFOs—because it wasn’t just a sighting incident, but one involving a purported attack. To this day, it’s still unsolved.
Cue appropriately spooky "X-Files" music.
A series of investigations conducted by the U.S. Air Force between 1952 and 1969, Project Blue Book was tasked with scientifically analyzing UFO-related incidents to determine whether they were a threat to national security. Some say the project was commissioned to find rational explanations for these mysterious phenomena, to help quell a growing Cold War-era public hysteria over unidentified objects in the sky. UFO fever reached such intensity that in April 1952, four months before the DesVergers incident, LIFE magazine published a story called “Have We Visitors from Space?”
That is very true, but it also fits the timeline and the culture. You had all those war movies, the Atomic Program churning out bombs, the ground tests, and then on top of that official propaganda and the Hollywood mixing together. I'd say he shows very well a stereotypical angry man of the 1950's.I'm not sure the purpose served by Capt. Quinn's interview questioning the Soviet spy, other than prove toe the general that he is a badass interrogator and really, really hates those darn commies.
They had to get hat famous 'Hynek' swamp gas in somewhere!
The artistic license that they've taken this is almost equal to Vikings. I am pretty certain we never looked as cool as they have made the Vikings look in their hit series. And I really don't get why they've involved KGB with the Project Blue Book? What does that storyline serve?O yeah, Russian agents who are paranoid about being found out have committed two outrageous crimes!!! Can't beat that with stick!
