Flying saucers are real and interplanetary

Commander Robert B. McLaughlin of the US Navy in January 1950 published a long article in True magazine in which he reported that flying saucers are real and interplanetary. McLaughlin, a missile expert at the White Sands Proving Grounds, describes how a group of naval sailors and scientists tracked a flying disc with a precision instrument, and talks about UFO flights he and others have witnessed.

On a clear Sunday morning in April 1949, a squad of sailors and a team of scientists launched a hot air balloon from a point 57 miles northwest of White Sands Proving Ground.

They were interested in obtaining weather data from the upper atmosphere, and as the balloon rose, they mapped its flight, as usual, using a theodolite and a stopwatch. There were five observers in total; four of them coordinated the instrument data. One watched the ball through a theodolite telescope. One took testimony. One wrote them down, and the fourth was observing.

Shortly after the balloon was airborne to the west of the vantage point, the theodolite operator quickly turned his instrument eastward. A strange object, which was seen by all present, crossed the path of the balloon. One of the scientists quickly grabbed the theodolite and began to follow this object.

An accurate graph of the object's course was recorded. Analyzing this data later, I can confidently assert that:

1. The object had an elliptical cross-section.

2. Its diameter was about 105 feet (32 meters).

3. He flew at an altitude of approximately 56 miles (90 km). (This was determined by a ballistics expert. An object at a lower altitude on this particular bright day might not match the findings.)

4. Its speed was about 5 miles per second (8 km per second).

5. At the end of the trajectory, he turned sharply upward, changing the elevation angle by 5 degrees - which corresponds to an increase in altitude of about 25 miles (40 km) - in 10 seconds. A rough calculation shows that for such a lift during this time, a force of more than 20 G (20 times the force of gravity) would be required.

6. The object was visible for 60 seconds.

7. He disappeared at an altitude of 29 degrees.

Careful survey of observers prior to the official report, which was sent to Project Saucer at Wright-Patterson Base in Dayton, Ohio, led to almost unanimous opinion that the object was disc-shaped and had an even white color. Powerful binoculars showed no trace of exhaust gases, no stream of light, or other signs of a propulsion system. And no sound. What was it?

I am convinced that it was a flying saucer and, moreover, that these discs are spaceships from another planet, controlled by animate, intelligent beings.

I think it's safe to say that this was not any of the types of aircraft known on Earth today. Even if, which is quite likely, there are top-secret models about which you and I know nothing, there is no person in this world who could withstand the force of 20 G and stay alive to tell about it.

Commander Robert Bright McLaughlin is an expert on naval ammunition and guided missiles. For the past three years, he has led the Navy's covert projects at White Sands Proving Grounds, Las Cruces, New Mexico.

He began his research on guided missiles in 1939, four years after graduating from the Naval Academy. While a graduate student in the Faculty of Engineering, he was appointed to the Navy's Anti-Aircraft Artillery Evaluation Commission.By 1941, he had developed a technique for creating a "beam rider" guided missile, which, due to the ability to "change its direction" after firing, increased the accuracy of anti-aircraft fire at fast, evasive, high-altitude air targets.

During the war, he was an artillery officer aboard the aircraft carrier Intrepid and participated in the major Pacific campaign from Kwajalein to the Philippines. He was on the Intrepid when it was attacked by thirty-three Japanese kamikaze (suicide) planes in three and a half minutes.

In August 1946, he was assigned to White Sands. He is 37 years old, a stocky, chubby man with curly brown hair, blue eyes and a crisp, clear manner of speech. He is married and has two children, a girl of 2, 5 years old and a boy of 10 months.

He is currently the captain of the destroyer Bristol.

I doubt it was a meteor. These small bullets from space often light up our skies, burning up from the friction created as they travel through our atmosphere. But only occasionally can they be seen during the day. In addition, meteors remain in the field of view for only a few seconds - maximum 10 or 12. This object was observed for 60 seconds.

Its size excludes the possibility that it is a bird or other known creature. No cloud could move along such a trajectory.

It was not a balloon, I can say it unequivocally. Several people who saw him were experienced balloonists. Moreover, they might have known that there was no balloon in the area capable of approaching the height of the object. Even at 120,000 feet (36 km), close to the peak altitude for any modern type, the balloon had to travel at 1,700 miles (2,735 km) per hour to match the trajectory data.

In addition, the wind at an altitude of 20 miles (32 km) was blowing from east to west - in the opposite direction from the movement of the object.

Hallucination? Optical illusion? I find it reasonable to say that illusions do not appear at the same time and in the same way in five different trained weather observers.

I cannot think of any other options. Reliable observers have seen the object. A sensitive device tracked him. The atmosphere was bright and clear in an area where we considered it a cloudy day if we could not see with the naked eye 50 miles (80 km) horizontally.

The only drawback was that until that time I had not personally seen the "flying saucer". However, this information excited me. I started looking for an explanation - a decent, convincing answer in terms of physics, mathematics, aerodynamics, and astronomy as we know them today. I had hardly finished my theories when I saw the "saucer" myself.

One morning in late May, I stood outside my office at White Sands while an army rocket was flying in the upper atmosphere. They rise much faster than a balloon, of course, and you usually lose sight of them shortly before they reach their peak. You will be very lucky if you can see them again on the way down.

The rocket had just been launched, and we had just lost sight of it when the Lieutenant Commander standing next to me shouted, "Here it is!"

The Marine captain and I saw what he was pointing to. The white object moved very slowly to the west. As I watched, he quickly picked up speed.

The object had already passed overhead, and I thought it would fall near a ranch two or three miles west of us. But he hissed like a scalded cat, swept over the Organ Mountains behind us and disappeared.

This was a very serious matter for us. We have always taken precautions so that the missiles did not leave the range. Immediately I called the landfill security officer.

“I just saw your rocket leave the range west of here,” I said.

He groaned. While we were discussing what to do, we both heard the echoing impact of our rocket far north of us and in the center of the range.

What did I see? Now I am faced with the problem of every "Flying Saucer" witness.What was it?

I thought about what I saw as carefully as possible. I realized that I was a little better than most of the witnesses. I didn't expect to see the saucer, but I expected to see something. My eyes, accustomed enough to this kind of observation, searched for a fast moving rocket.

These impressions I recognized as accurate:

1. The saucer, when first seen, was moving at an extremely low speed, perhaps 1 mile per second (1.6 km / s).

2. Its shape was rather disc-like as it was visible at an altitude of more than 25 miles (40 km).

3. It accelerated to a speed much higher than that which can be obtained with modern rocket engines.

4. The object passed within 5 degrees of the Sun and was still visible to the naked eye. This would hardly be possible if the object were a meteor.

5. Again, there was no sign of a propulsion system.

The last appearance of flying discs occurred in early June. On this day, we conducted naval missile firing in the upper atmosphere. Shortly after it took off, two small circular objects, supposedly about 20 inches (58 centimeters) in diameter, appeared from nowhere and joined the Navy rocket in its upward flight. (These smaller discs have also been reported previously, as have the larger types mentioned earlier.)

Around the time the Navy missile was gaining speed in excess of 2,000 feet per second (609 meters per second), an object on the west side passed through the exhaust fumes and joined its friend on the east side. Then they apparently decided that the rocket was not going fast enough for them. They sped up, zoomed past a naval missile, and sailed up and east.

About eight minutes after the naval missile fell back into range, I received a radio message from a very powerful optical observation post located at the top of the mountain. The naval missile, he said, had just passed over the mountain and was heading out of the range to the west. It could be one of two objects that we saw and which changed direction, or it could be a third.

Soon I received reports from eleven people from five separate POs, none of whom could communicate with each other and who were at different points on the compass. They all saw the two objects act as I described.

Putting together all the data observed in the three cases that I myself saw, and everything I have no doubt about, I decided that it was necessary to look for an answer outside the known world

No one realizes better than I that the explanations that follow may be wrong. However, I think there is too much evidence from too many reliable sources for us to be content with lame explanations and we must keep looking for the answer.

I believe that flying saucers are manned spaceships, firstly, because of their flight characteristics. The White Sands saucer were definitely capable of changing direction while above our atmosphere. This extreme maneuverability - plus their large size - makes it impossible for me to be remotely controlled

My own experience with rockets leads me to believe that a "Saucer" with such characteristics is far beyond the technical capabilities of any person on Earth. Our current thermochemical propulsion system is completely inadequate to replicate the amazing 5-degree climb seen during Saucer # 1's flight

If you agree with this, you will be forced to assume that the Saucer can only be set in motion by the energy obtained from the atom.

What kind of? And how? Well, I suggest "radiation pressure engine".

Radiation pressure is one of the oldest known physical phenomena.You've seen how it works if you've ever noticed the small glassware that jewelers often display in their display cases. This is the "Crookes radiometer" - a device that is more than 100 years old. Inside a small glass sphere, four metal blades, black on one side and silver on the other, revolve around an axis, although apparently no motor drives them.

Light provides energy. It emits a "push" that changes from the surface of one blade to the surface of the neighboring one. So where would the Saucer's engineers get enough light to propel their rocket through space?

I imagine an engine like a fluorescent lamp. The inner core is filled with fissile material, probably gas. The outer tube surrounding the nucleus contains fluorescent material.

The fissile gas activates the fluorescent material, causing light. Light exerts pressure - propulsive push or thrust - on a heavily shielded curved reflector. The push sets the rocket in motion.

The activity of the fluorescent material is regulated by increasing or decreasing the amount of fissile gas in the inner core. And the fluorescent material is pumped into the outer tube as it is consumed. This is all oversimplified and some serious problems remain.

For example, no substance is known from which tubes could be made. Any material that we can combine will disintegrate in the fission process. I also hesitate to say which shield will fully protect the crew of the "saucer" from radiation exposure.

Radiation pressure engine theory has been discussed with experts at a number of universities. Some scoffed. Some were encouraged. However, since our current research on atomic energy is in its infancy, I think it is too early to say that this idea is impossible. Let's just admit that if the people from the saucer use something similar to this principle, then they have probably improved and perfected it.

While I have gone very far, I would like to add that this ship will use three sets of engines.

Basic the engine will be used to start and propel it during space travel. These motors would be placed in one segment of the disc edge.

Second an engine, probably located on the flat bottom surface of the disk, would be used to keep it in flight while it is hanging or preparing to land.

Third - small motor for roll and tilt control. Since the radiation from the main power plant can be large, I must imagine that the crew will be confined to a segment of the leading edge of the disk.

This would leave a large middle area for fuel tanks, food supplies, and other equipment.

In one case, described by both Chalette and Keiho, the disk follows this pattern.

At 2:45 am on July 24, 1948, an Eastern Airlines DC-3 en route to Atlanta, Georgia from Montgomery, Alabama, saw a "shiny, fast moving object" about a mile (1.6 km) away. Captain Clarence S. Chiles, a former Air Transport Command pilot, and pilot John B. Whitted, a former B-29 pilot, both observed him clearly.

They agreed that it was about 100 feet long (30 meters) and resembled a cigar in shape. He was wingless. When the object flew past them, at about eye level, they saw two rows of "windows" along the fuselage. They glowed with dazzling white light. The dark blue light passed along the entire length of the form, along the bottom side. Exhaust gas from a red-orange flame rocked the DC-3 as the object veered off course and out of sight.

It seems to me that the pilots saw not a cigar-shaped fuselage, but a disc. The two rows of holes are the air vents of the main propulsion system.The blue light came from the lower engines pointing downwards so that the disk could operate at the slow speed of 500 to 700 mph (804 to 1126 km / h), which the pilots estimated. I'm less sure about the flame. Perhaps due to the fact that it was moving within the Earth's atmosphere (DC-3 was at an altitude of 5,000 feet (1.5 km) during the meeting), particles of exhaust gases were visible. However, the jolt he gave DC-3 is not surprising. I must say that the plane felt an explosion of light energy, a product of the radiation pressure engine.

The shape of the disc, as such, complies with the aerodynamic laws and could provide a very real flying machine

However, I believe this design is used as a temperature compensation device. By varying the angle of inclination, the disk, in its flight through space, could control the amount of heat it received from the sun. With its flat side to the Sun, it could absorb a significant amount of heat, and very little on its edge

The design, construction and work of the saucers tell me that there is a very high intelligence behind the work. Not only works, but is also present inside the disks. I cannot believe that the ready-made maneuverability demonstrated, for example, by "Saucer No. 2" when evading a missile launched by our army, was controlled remotely

What these creatures look like, I have no idea. However, since I insist that they are indeed at the helm of their strange ship, I must assume that they are significantly smaller than us. We already know that although 6 G is a huge load for humans, creatures smaller than us can withstand incredible loads. A bee can probably withstand 20 G, and an ant even more. The saucer crew members also need to be small enough to fly on saucer # 3, 20-inch discs (58 cm). It is impossible to imagine intelligent beings of such a small size, but we should not neglect any possibilities

Where the "saucers" came from, one can only guess. My guess is Mars. Mars "cooled down" and may have become capable of supporting some form of life millions of years before Earth. The Martians, if such existed, would have had a great start in the development of science

I believe that the frequency of the appearance of the "saucers" over the southwestern part of the United States may have been influenced by the attitude of Mars to Earth on July 16, 1945

On this day, Mars was in a good position to see our surface. And at 5:30 in the morning of the same day in New Mexico, in the northwestern corner of the present White Sands test site, the first atomic bomb was detonated. It can be assumed that the flash was noticed from afar by sensitive optical devices

What are the aliens up to? So far, their behavior indicates that they are only interested in watching us. The fact that so far the "saucers" operations have been peaceful in nature also rules out any suspicion that they were launched by a foreign land power such as Russia. If any country was fiddling with long-range missiles, why would it experiment on the United States, where, as a result of an accident, the object and all its secrets could be on our doorstep?

Will the saucers land? The little ones can. If their inhabitants decide that they can survive on Earth, small "saucers" can be lowered from large spacecraft.

Large discs, even when the engines are at their maximum efficiency, probably won't be able to risk the loss of accumulated momentum that would occur during landing. It would be too difficult to re-create the momentum needed to return home.

Why can't you see the saucers?

The atmosphere over about 75 percent of the Earth's surface is filled with moisture particles. This gives us a "white sky" most of the time. Against such a background, to see a flying saucer is a pure coincidence. The White Sands undoubtedly had near-ideal atmospheric conditions and excellent visibility

I know this is a fantastic story.I cannot prove the theories I have outlined. I may not even be able to prove that the disks are real until I pump one of them.

But from the point of view of the very limited knowledge that we, the inhabitants of the Earth, possess, these ideas may provide the key to solving the great riddle.

Whatever the answer, I don't feel there is anything terrible, hostile, or dangerous about the Flying Saucers or their inhabitants.

The problem of space travel has fascinated people on Earth for centuries.

It is not fiction for us to explore other planets, why should it be fiction if, say, the Martians visit us?
