The UFO Phenomenon

Declassified files reveal AATIP's 'out there' research

The US government's secretive UFO program did more than investigate sightings of unidentified arial phenomena.
Incredibly, it turns out that government scientists working for the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) had also been investigating a whole host of 'out there' technologies and scientific concepts - such as anti-gravity, wormholes and invisibility cloaks - that wouldn't have seemed out of place in a science-fiction movie.

This is, at least, according to a treasure trove of some 1,600 declassified documents recently acquired by Motherboard following a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Some of the files - known as Defense Intelligence Reference Documents (DIRDs) - discuss concepts including "traversable stargates and negative energy" as well as "high-frequency gravitational wave communications, warp drive, dark energy, and the manipulation of extra dimensions."

There are also references to "negative mass propulsion" and a plan to mine extremely lightweight materials from the center of the Moon by blasting tunnels using nuclear weapons.

As things stand, it's difficult to know what happened to most of these concepts (though it's safe to assume that the US government did not use nukes on the Moon.)

Could some of the above-mentioned technologies have actually been developed and if so, especially given that this is a secretive UFO program, is there a connection to potential alien visitors ?

With over 1,600 files to examine, UFO researchers will certainly have plenty to read for the foreseeable future.

I'm well aware. I was hoping that the parties, who earlier in the thread claimed it was a bomb and/or a nuke, were going to rescind there claims and admit their error.

Someone claims that nukes were used n the Moon and then one of them asks whether we bother to read about science. I was well aware of the mission before it detected water on the Moon. Nukes and bombs on the Moon is a bad deion of the LCROSS mission. Can any of the two tell us which mission will next use an impactor?

I’m aware that you are aware - your last sentence in what I quoted kinda made that abundantly clear  I was just agreeing with you. Cheers, Badeskov

I agree. Funding gets pulled daily for projects in the military that are not producing.

There is a long history of military projects that went years and years that had no hope of producing anything. The best example by far was the nuclear plane. Can you tell me which military projects were cancelled yesterday since you know they get cancelled every day? How about the ones that were cancelled on Monday. I would love to know since Biden's proposed budget increases military spending.

Oh my. I think you just confused me for the other user that has a similar user name: @NobuActuallyCaresAboutYourRequest   You can go to any defense website and see new programs that start and the ones being cut… for each year.   or not.   I don’t care.

Yeah, I didn't think you knew.

Hi Astro, i have actually been part of military programs where funding was cut. Partly because of not meeting deadlines, but also because funds were reallocated.    Obviously, these were not part of the high profile programs as which you correctly allude to go on and on. More some esoteric programs that the military had some rather outlandish ideas about, but I unfortunately I had no hands in writing the proposals for - I was just tasked with them after approval.    Cheers, Badeskov

Where can I read about these? Another good example happened after World War 2 when the Army was designing and not building many rocket designs. For years Army rocket scientists mostly sat around drawing up complicated and impractical designs for rockets and then arguing over whose design was least ridiculous. Some of the designs were much like giant Saturn V rockets which had no chance of actually being built at that time which seemed to be the intention. They were sure there was no rush to build anything because the Soviet Union was years behind... until they launched Sputnik. When that happe... [More]
