A spacecraft from another planet, or something more banal such as a weather balloon or experimental military aircraft? This is the mystery that has been surrounding the Roswell incident since July 8, 1947. Almost seventy years later, despite the official story attributing the debris recovered to a weather balloon, many still cling to visions of flying saucers and alien autopsies.
Whatever the truth may be, the basic UFO concept is that a saucer shaped aircraft crashed near Roswell and inside were found the bodies of the Alien crew members. The supposed Roswell Aliens were smaller than an average human being with no hair and big eyes. Later, it was reported that the “UFO” debris found by rancher Mac Brazel in 1947 northwest of Roswell, New Mexico, was in fact a remnant of a balloon flight launched as part of a top-secret program called Project Mogul.
