"Majestic 12". The main secret of the XX century
June 24 in the US, a civilian pilot who made a flight in the Cascade Range (Washington), saw nine disc-shaped vehicles flying in high-speed formations. Although it was not the first observation of such objects, which became known, the event was the first sign in terms of wide public publicity.
Following the announcement of the nine devices of unearthly construction, hundreds of reports of similar objects were followed. Many of them came from very reliable military and civilian sources. These messages were analyzed in several US military departments independently of each other in order to identify true information about these objects from the standpoint of the interests of national defense. A large number of witnesses were interviewed and several unsuccessful attempts were made to use aircraft to prosecute disks in flight, because disks (or "plates") continued to appear with depressing regularity. The reaction of the population to these actions sometimes bordered on hysteria.
However, despite the tremendous efforts, progress in studying the essence of these objects was insignificant. And here came the information from the local farmer. He reported that a disk had crashed in a remote area of the state of New Mexico, not far from the Roswell military base.
The secret operation "Majestic-12" began on July 7, 1947. Its essence was in the detection and scientific study of the wreckage of an incomprehensible disk. In the process of the operation of the American aerial reconnaissance were also found four human-like creatures of small stature, which, apparently, ejected from the apparatus before it exploded. They were discovered approximately two miles east of the site of the fall of the disk. All creatures were dead and were in a terrible state, because before discovery, they were “prey” of rodents and microorganisms for almost a week.
What remained of the bodies and the apparatus was taken for study by a special scientific group. A non-disclosure subscription was taken from civilian and military witnesses, and a message was launched to the average in the media that the object was lost control over a hydrometeorological research probe.
A detailed four-body study was performed by Dr. Bronk's group.From the preliminary conclusion of this group, dated November 30, 1947, it follows that although the appearance of the dead and human-like, but the biological and evolutionary processes are significantly different from the processes that provide human activity. Therefore, to refer to these creatures, the temporary term “Extraterrestrial biological creature” (VBS) was introduced. Temporary - because it meant its further clarification at subsequent stages of studying bodies.
According to preliminary analyzes obtained by General Twining and Dr. Bush, the disc most of all resembles a small-sized reconnaissance vehicle. This conclusion was formulated in accordance with the size of the apparatus with the size of reconnaissance aircraft and with a clear lack of any reserves on board. Unambiguously, one thing was clear: the apparatus of clearly extraterrestrial origin, in no country in the world there are such technologies that allowed building something similar.
The main question is the question of the origin of the astronomers and how they came to be on Earth. The researchers suggested that they are from Mars, although some scientists, especially Dr. Donald Menzel,considered the most likely their appearance from another solar system. Inscriptions of hieroglyphic types were found on some fragments, which could not be deciphered. Also unsuccessful were attempts to unravel the principle of the movements of the object and the principle of operation of the engines. Studies were complicated by the fact that the engines were destroyed by an explosion that caused an accident.
Work on the study of the alien ship that had crashed had different names in different divisions: “Sign”, “Anger”, “Blue Book”, but for simplicity we will use the general name “Majestic-12”. Also called the top-secret group, consisting of twelve people involved in coordinating the study of UFOs in general. They were leading scientists and prominent military leaders, including Rear Admiral Sydney Sirs, First Director of the Main Directorate of Military Intelligence, General Nathan Toining, Commander of the Air Force Logistics, Dr. Vannevar Bush, Chairman of the Joint Research and Improvement Committee ), and General Hoyt Vanderberg, Chief of Staff of the Air Force.
The research lasted a long time, and in 1950, scientists received a second “gift”: on November 6, a second object, probably similar to the first, crashed at El Indio Guerrero near the US-Mexico border. He crashed into the ground at high speed after moving along a long trajectory in the atmosphere. The movement was observed from the ground, and immediately after the accident, the search team was sent to the site, which found the remains of an almost completely burnt object. Samples from the scene of the accident were urgently taken for research in Sandia (New Mexico).
Fundamental to national security was that the goals and objectives of the guests from Cosmos were completely unknown and incomprehensible. In addition, observations showed that the activity of unidentified objects began in May 1950 and continued throughout the autumn, and therefore there is a possibility that the second visit is not the last. Therefore, the program has received a new level of secrecy - in order to avoid panic among the population.
Where did the details of the operation become known? On December 11, 1984, television producer Jaime Shander received a carefully wrapped envelope in which there was an undeveloped 35 mm film.It turned out that several pages of top-secret documents, known as “Majestic 12”, were imprinted on it. In these documents, prominent scientists and military men were mentioned who studied captured UFOs and aliens. The letter was without a return address, it also contained all of the above events, as well as a document signed by Truman, in which the president gives "valuable instructions" about the secrecy of the operation. Immediately a question arose: is this a genuine document or another fake? The seals and signatures on the documents are real, but the proponents of the version that the document is a fake give the following argument: a person cannot sign twice the same way, and Truman’s signature on the received document looks like two drops of water in a document openly stored in the library US Congress. Proponents of the version that the document is genuine assert that no one checked the authenticity of that document from the library, so it is not yet known where the fake signature is, but where the real one is.
But there was one more doubt: the descriptions of the accident in the letter are somewhat different from what the witnesses of the fall tell.So where is the truth? By the way, there is information that in the area suffered up to four flying discs. I wonder what was so interesting for them? And why did everyone crash?
The story with the letters did not end there. At the end of 1986, journalists received a package of documents from a man who identified himself as John and served in the British army. John said that he was ordered by his commander to hand them over to them. These were six posts totaling 600 pages. During the conversation, a number of names and codes were mentioned, which later coincided with the data from the Majestic-12 documents. The documents contained the results of a biological analysis of the bodies of aliens extracted from their crashed ships. This report was dated 1948, and another folder, dated October 1977 (!) Of the year, was called “Liquidation of non-military sources of information”.
By the end of the century, the US authorities did everything to extinguish the rumors of the Roswell incident. Nevertheless, in 1996, the investigation was launched again. This investigation was initiated in connection with the clandestine appearance of the film, which was called succinctly and extremely concretely: “Opening the newcomer”.The film showed how one of the aliens was dissected. It was, strictly speaking, not a film, but a documentary fixation of the fact of the autopsy. In 1995, Ray Santilli, a London-based music film journalist, released a film called Alien Autopsy: fact or fiction. He made a strong impression, and disputes still do not subside whether it is possible to believe that first film and what exactly is shown in it. In Russian, the films - neither one nor the second - were fully shown, only excerpts included in other documentaries were shown, so we will give a brief retelling. The Ray Santilli film consists of two parts; the first one contains the story of the first film, and also the Roswell incident briefly described, while the second one presents the very sensational shots that Ray Santilli managed to find. It shows the autopsy of a strange humanoid creature by a group of surgeons or pathologists.
About Roswell in the film says that this is a military airfield, the base of the elite squadron No. 509. It was from here that the plane that bombed Hiroshima rose. When the disk crashed, it was in the hands of the military, who transported it to study in Ohio.The film shows the witnesses who somehow were connected with the base in Ohio and Roswell.
The presenter drew the audience’s attention to metal plates that were clearly created for creatures with six fingers. It was assumed that this is something like a control device. The aliens put their hands in special grooves, corresponding to the six-fingered hand, and thus could control their spaceship. Maybe a thought process, maybe some other.
The film also tells about Kevin Randall, who wrote a book about the Roswell Incident. He claims that many more people were involved in the investigation than one can imagine - about fifty people, at least with so many people, he managed to talk. There is information that in order for rumors about the accident not to spread, they decided to burn the remains of the ship, but they did not burn. Then they decided to cut this autogenous - just to no avail. The wreckage of the ship was made of some unusually light metal. Such a terrestrial technology to produce is simply unrealistic.
Kevin Randall said that the military strongly pressed on eyewitnesses, forcing them to keep quiet about what they saw.“You will be killed if you tell someone,” said the military to eyewitnesses. They declared that they already had a flying saucer - so that no one was looking for it.
Another witness is the daughter of one of the officers, Frankie Rose. She said that her father immediately told her after the incident that in addition to two dead bodies, one was found alive. That is, three, not four - as stated in other sources. This creature looked like a small ten-year-old child with pink skin and gray spots on it. The face is triangular, and very large eyes with an unusual incision. And six fingers. Where it went is unknown, and whether the stranger survived is unknown too. But the body that was opened in the film was not completely disfigured by decomposition and rodents, so there is a possibility that it was the body of what was found alive. Killed him or he died himself - will remain a mystery.
Immediately around the first film, there was a huge amount of talk that the autopsy footage was not real, that Hollywood had a hand in them, the master was also not for such effects. But Ray Santilli believes that in the “Autopsy of an Alien”, it was the alien autopsy that was shown. Curious how he found this movie.One day, when Ray was collecting footage of rock and roll bands from the 50s, an elderly American told him: “By the way, I still have some footage.” When Ray watched them, the first thought was that the filming was not real. In black and white shots taken without sound and clearly not with a tripod, the process of opening a humanoid creature was filmed. The man who brought the film turned out to be a former military cameraman. He said that in 1947 he was summoned to Roswell, and it was there that he filmed this autopsy. The operator said that he had problems with the development of one of the rolls of film, so he had to carry out processing differently, and this roll remained with him and was not transported to Ohio, like everyone else. He had previously tried to give it to someone who would be interested to learn the truth, but could not find anyone. The film was in a metal box - the same as everyone else.
The operator also told about the fact that he personally saw the alien "plate" fall. But where did she come from and where did she go then — he doesn't know. The name of this operator is Roderick Ryan.
The authenticity of the film was tested in various ways, including the analysis of objectscaught in the frame: did they exist in 1947? Attention was drawn to the clock on the wall of the company "General Electric", which entered service in 1940. Telephone company Bell 1937 release. Yes, objects correspond to the era, but who said that they could not be purchased later and removed on film, imitating 1947? Perhaps the Kodak film itself will tell? Is it possible to understand when it was created? For this, an expert was invited, Lawrence Keith, who worked for Eastmen Kodak for sixteen years. Kate said that the company gave geometric designations to all films depending on the year when they were produced. Judging by the film, it can be assumed that it was produced in 1927, 1947 or 1967. Such a vague examination ... The main thing is that in 1947 this film could still be made.
When the film was more or less sorted out, they decided to investigate the film itself - wasn’t it fabricated later and was it awarded for a film of the 40s? To do this, they invited an expert, Paul Shersha, senior curator of the photo lab at Eastman Kodak in Rochester (New York). Shershi stated unequivocally that the film could have been shot in the interval from the late 40s to the early 50s. “When people ask me whether it is possible to fabricate a film, I answer: no,” said Shershi.- It is very difficult to fabricate a real film. This requires technical knowledge and special equipment. This is a very expensive operation. ”
Alan Devio, one of the most famous Hollywood operators, thought quite the opposite: the film is fake. The main argument was that the operator does not focus the image. In his opinion, he did it on purpose. After all, if it is a military operator, it should focus well. Ron Maguire, who worked as a military operator in the 40s, strongly disagreed with him. He believed that the loss of focus comes from the camera on which the film was shot. The cameras that military operators used in those days were mostly Bell & Howell cameras, and they were poorly focused.
Allan Devio led other arguments: bad angles. Sometimes there is nothing in the frame, except the back of the doctor. The operator is constantly on the move, but the viewer still sees nothing. According to Davio, filmed a layman.
Ron Maguire, on the other hand, believed that the operator moved all the time so as not to interfere with the surgeons who also moved all the time. And guess where they move once again is quite difficult.And in general, the task of the military operator is only to record events, and not to think about the beauty of the frame. In his opinion, it was a good camera job.
Roderick Ryan confirmed that he was actually trying not to interfere with the surgeons, and the camera was very heavy, and the surgeons should not be distracted by it. And in fact it was a Bell & Howell camera.
Paul Shershi also believed that the shooting was authentic: “What we see gives the impression that everything was real. And the body is like a real body. I think this is a unique film. ”
Yes, the question - whether the alien's body was a real body or just a dummy, stood very sharply. In order to learn this, Ray Santilli showed the record to two leading pathologists in the world.
Cyril Post, who made at least forty thousand autopsies, believed that this was not a man, but not a dummy. SM Milroy, a pathologist at the University of Sheffield in England, believed that anatomically this creature only slightly resembles a human being. Yes, and six fingers and toes - this is not normal, a person does not have that. But the known disease polydactyly - mnogopaltsevost, which is a genetic disorder. It is very rare, but it occurs.It also draws attention to the fact that the creature does not show any sexual signs. Is this a female creature? But there are no secondary female sexual characteristics either. Like a woman with Taurus syndrome. It takes place in about one woman in forty thousand. It is difficult to find a corpse of a person who would have so many abnormalities at once - including an unusual head shape, huge eyes and small stature.
Both specialists came to the unequivocal conclusion that the autopsy was clearly done not by actors, but by professionals, if not pathologists, then surgeons, who were often engaged in autopsies. The people filmed in the film clearly knew what to do and how. As for the tools, it corresponds to the era. For example, a rectangular tray on which tools are located has been used for a very long time. Now such things are difficult to meet.
True, SM Milroy had a question: if this is really an alien, then why did they spend only two hours there? Perhaps the autopsy had to be carried out for weeks, months, or even years, if this is a real alien. But who knows how long the doctors took the doctors?
Another doubt: why is the body so well preserved? If the alien died when the flying saucer collided with the earth, then the body should be much more disfigured. The same alien has only one thigh mutilated. Perhaps this is not a consequence of the accident, but a radiation experiment that failed? This, at least, explains why the revealers wear protective suits. Especially since Roswell, where the body was found, is located next to a secret nuclear test site. Maybe this is actually the alien who was still alive when he was found?
The internal structure, which was clearly visible in the film, clearly did not correspond to the human. Can not see the liver, instead of it some uncertain mass. The brain, extracted from the skull, is also completely unlike the human. Neither in color, more precisely, in tone - the film is black-and-white, nor in outline. Cyril Uocht stated quite clearly: “This is not a man. But what is it? I could say it is a humanoid. I can not say - an alien or not, but the fact that he is not a man - that's for sure. Whether he came from another planet - I do not know, but this is not a member of the human race, like you and me.Of course, it is difficult to prove that this body consists of flesh and blood - perhaps it is a creature created by man. But why from the dummy is bleeding? "
In order to determine if this was a cinema trick, they turned to Stan Winston, the man who created the dinosaurs and other creatures in the movie “Jurassic Park”. On the screen they were as alive.
“My first reaction, when I saw these shots,” Stan Winston admitted, “was the following: no, this is not real, this is a body that someone created by artificial means. But then the autopsy began. They opened the body, cut it - and you know how difficult it is for us, masters of special effects, to truly simulate eyes, skin ... If it really wasn’t really, I would be very proud if I could create such an image on the screen. The skin looks quite organic, it looks very dry, everything inside is damp — almost everywhere. We would never do that. It's too hard. ”
Yes, in modern cinema, experts admitted, you can use materials like silicone, which gives amazing effects, but if everything else is present and the film is actually made a long time ago, then there was no silicone.And now there is practically no access to silicone materials, it exists only for expensive Hollywood action films, while others pay crazy money. Is this movie worth the money? What was the purpose of its creators, if it is fake?
Talking about the operation "Majestic-12" and the film by Ray Santilli, it is impossible not to mention another movie "Opening of an alien", which was filmed in Germany in 2006. The essence of the story told in the film is as follows: 1995, two friends go to San Diego, one of them meets some strange old man who allegedly filmed an alien autopsy in 1947. Friends buy the tape for the money of some dangerous gangster, but because of the heat the film melted. To meet the expectations of the gangster and the money spent and in order not to get into trouble, friends decide to repeat everything that was on the old man’s film. Make the scenery, create a stranger, shoot on the old camera. Then they decide to earn extra money on their lies, and eventually become world famous people. Though the fame was one of the most false and deceitful. The film is made in the style of the narration of the characters themselves, who ten years later tell the documentary film an amazing story.
Someone described the film as a funny joke, as a rally of the century, but someone believed that the story was actually like this: the film of 1947 is falsification. And for what reasons it was made - was the film really melted and did you really need to recreate the original, or was the fake originally created - in 1947 or later - the viewer will no longer understand. Like a classic: whether you stole, or stole from you, your reputation is still ruined. The main thing - to bring to the minds of the masses in any way: the film - a fake. What was successfully done.
The question is: those people, the characters of the film Ray Santilli, experts, cameramen, pathologists - were they all blind fools? Were you unable to distinguish real shots from the inept styling of some two young trapies? Most likely, it is a matter of the continuing veil of secrecy that world powers continue to hold over all known cases of visiting our planet by guests from Cosmos.
