UFO (unidentified flying objects), better UAP or Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon: for the first time reported by American Navy . We cannot yet say – and perhaps never will be – what those hard-to-find objects framed by the Us Navy pilots in 2015 were, but now there is the official confirmation that the top guns of the Nimitz aircraft carrier actually filmed unknown objects and from the inexplicable aerodynamic behavior.
The twin-engine Super Hornet jet engines reach almost 2 thousand kilometers per hour but equally those Uap outperformed them in terms of speed and maneuverability: the astonishment in the voice of the experienced pilots is evident in front of those potential rivals. And moreover it was stated that a man, however resistant and well trained, could not bear the physical solicitations required by such rapid and sudden evolutions, impossible for every flying machine built to date. As helped by technology, more than many G (acceleration of gravity) a pilot or an astronaut cannot cash.
The case was discussed last year in October at the conference of the National UFO Center in Rome which counted on the participation of Luis Elizondo , a former agent and former director of the secret program Aatip (Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program), previously Aawsap (Advanced Aerospace Weapons System Application Program), Dia (Defense Intelligence Agency), and TOm DeLonge, former front man of the American band. Elizondo said he was out of the Dia by not sharing the cloak of secrecy imposed on those programs.
It was they who set the Pentagon in check by collecting the trust of the New York Times that with the scoop of December 2017 forced the American Defense to release the three videos. The shots were taken off the coast of California at a height of about 8,000 meters with the help of infrared instrumentation, ideal for detecting the heat emitted by the “target” engine, or so it works with the engines known to us. In this case, however, heat was not detected. The fighter flew at about 500 kilometers per hour and the pilot managed to frame the aircraft that flew to his left only thanks to the automatic coupling and tracking system.
“The United States Navy indicates the objects in these three videos as unidentified aerial phenomena as genuine manifestations of the UAP phenomenon,”
said Joseph Gradisher, official spokesman for the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare, explaining that yes he hopes that the term Uap encourages pilots to report these sightings without falling into embarrassment related instead to the term Ufo.
In short, more could not have been hoped for in order to have the total certification on the authenticity of those surprising films, no longer confusable with the tide of video tapes increasingly common on the Web. An unprecedented confirmation. In other words: that the videos were genuine and indeed of the US Navy there was no doubt, but now the Navy attests that it is not possible to catalog with current knowledge what pilots, including former commander David Fravor, have taken up interviewed by CNN: “I know every type of aircraft, but what I filmed does not resemble any of them”.
There remains, now, the no small problem of understanding what has been filmed, whether it is terrestrial or alien objects or some kind of phenomenon. A real step forward in ufology, and also in several other questions that homo sapiens has always raised by raising its eyes to the sky, was this time accomplished, but the road is still long, tending to infinity.
Having said that there is no mention of green men with antennas, here for the first time in Europe Luis Elizondo and Tom DeLonge, guests Saturday of the VII International Conference of Ufology hosted by Villa Maria in Rome, and welcomed by the president of the National UFO Center, Vladimiro Bibolotti, and long-time ufologists such as Roberto Pinotti and Javier Serra. “The conference of the turning point” the president of the Cun specified, referring to the mass of revolutionary news that “To the star academy” has triggered. “From science fiction to the science of facts,” it has been said. Elizondo and DeLonge, after the NYT scoop last December, had never attended a public meeting, to say the interest of not only Italian ufologists for the Roman convention.
“From the War of the Worlds to the UFOs of the Pentagon” the title of the meeting, since 80 years ago Orson Welles made the alien invasion of the Earth credible on the radio, while 40 years later there was the most impressive wave of UFO sightings in Italy: over 2,400, a multitude not justifiable even with the release, in that year, of the film “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”.
And if it is never easy – the ufologists themselves say – to identify the reliability levels of the testimonies, the hundreds of millions of dollars spent by the Pentagon to try to understand the potential threats caused by these phenomena remain damn concrete. This idea of the threat, alien or from someone else on Earth, is not recent: even Benito Mussolini ordered to investigate in the maximum secret about sightings of mysterious flying torpedoes, one of which would have even crashed on the homeland in 1933. And until a few years ago in the police stations there were the forms reserved for UFO sightings.
But since 1947, from the Roswell case, with the “theater” of the discovery of a flying saucer complete with crew in New Mexico, in short, that all that is Ufo has become of rigorous military competence, accentuating the eternal battle between information and disinformation. Elizondo was director of the Program for the identification of space threats that the Pentagon entrusted from 2007 to 2011 to Bigelow Aerospace and was then closed.
“And instead – says Elizondo, a square type, we see that he brought the stars – he has been going on since then with the same militaristic criteria that pushed me to get out of it. This theme, on the other hand, cannot remain without transparency and competence only of the Defense, however harnessed in a skepticism that is completely reluctant to open up. But does it seem possible that in the US people are sent to the scaffold on the basis of two testimonies, while even trained pilots are not believed in Uap matters? Studying this phenomena, without wanting to steal technologies that we do not yet know for military purposes, will probably allow us to change the current metrics of physics in terms of space and time. And look, just look at the Lhc results at Cern in Geneva, where they try to create new sources of energy inspired by phenomena such as black holes, to have some more elements when one wants to understand, for example, some of the impressive abilities of unidentified flying objects. In short, instead of studying the UFOs in secret, a state in rivalry with the other, we join forces and knowledge “.
“With the To the stars Academy – adds 43-year-old DeLonge – We want to put to the service of all, without boundaries and in full visibility, research and testimonies to investigate these phenomena, even sources of innate questions in humans, which can indicate ways to technological progress”.
Tom DeLonge is a Californian guy with calm manners, now you can’t imagine it unleashed on the stage that swings the guitar. When he speaks his eyes shine as if he were looking away, he recalls the almost-same-age Elon Musk, who in fact mentions from time to time. And without underlining that, as the creator of SpaceX, he suddenly left a road already firmly traced (that of the hugely popular Blink-182) investing and risking everything he had earned as a music star in a company that was not exactly orthodox like that of investigate UFOs.
