The Roswell UFO Incident involved the recovery of materials near Roswell, New Mexico, USA, in July 1947 by a man named Mac Brazel[1]. The incident has since become the subject of intense speculation, rumor, questioning and research. There are widely divergent views on what actually happened and passionate debate about what evidence can be believed. The United States military maintains that what was recovered was a weather balloon that had crashed. However, many UFO proponents believe the wreckage was of a crashed alien craft and that the military covered up the craft's recovery. The incident has turned into a widely-recognized and referenced pop culture phenomenon, and for some, Roswell is synonymous with UFOs. It likely ranks as the most famous alleged UFO incident.

After the incident, several fictional stories, television shows, and books attempting to explain the Roswell incident have been published, further adding to the popularity of the incident. There is almost no more controversy that the military's explanation was some sort of coverup.[2] It is interesting to note that some tests of atomic weaponry detonated underground were performed close to the area where the incident happened.


In the summer of 1947, specifically July 3, 1947[3], when the rancher Mac Brazel was awakened by a loud noise outside of his house. The next morning, he got his horses out and rode down to the area that the noise came from. It turned out to be a crash of some sort of object, the truth still unknown, that was a

mile long.[3]

The rancher reported this to authorities, and on July 8, 1947, Blanchard, the commanding officer of the Roswell Army Air Field, came down to see what the whole story was. Although they reported the crash site of a weather balloon to the press,[4] new testimonies from some of the officials said that what they found at the crash site was definately not terrestrial. Blanchard ordered the crash site to be cleared off. He also ordered that an investigation of the crash site to take place.[1]&nbsp

The story was then left untouched for about thirty years, with most ufologists and other enthusiasts accepting the authorities' explanation. In the late 1970s, the Roswell story was brought back shrouded in mystery when Major Jesse Marcel told the press about his story. He told them of a strange type of material that could not be destroyed in any form and, went bent, would turn back to its original, flat form. It was the most unusual thing that anyone had ever seen.[1]

However, that was not the only evidence. Several long "beams" were discovered along with the paper. These poles, nicknamed the I-Beams, were long metal poles that were extremely strong. These poles had symbols on them, and one man nicknamed these symbols hierogyphs because he could not interpret anything they meant.[4] The poles were later photographed and shown.

Alien bodiesEdit

Undoubtedly, the most mysterious evidence in the entire incident was the "recovery" and "autopsy" of five alien bodies that resembled greys. These bodies are very controversial and many people do not even believe in them, and say that it never happened. Nevertheless, a nurse said that she was forced to perform autopsy on these alien bodies and see exactly what they were. Controversial images were taken of these creatures, and some of the photographs have changed people's minds about the alien bodies at Roswell.[4]

The photographs show a humanoid body, except for a larger head along with its penis. The photos show the alien has large eyes and its mouth is wide open. Compared to its body, the arms and legs are skinnier than a human's, and they were all without clothes.[3] Two of the aliens were alive and three were dead.[4]
