The whole Roswell case is debunked. Here's what happened.
After WW II, the Russians were a primary concern for the United States, (cold war). The US was undergoing a top secret project to send balloons up to
monitor Russia's activities. They sent up not "weather balloons," but actual men up into the air in a similar fashion, without an enclosed cabin to
protect them from high pressure (the effects of high pressure were not known at this time). A man was sent up wearing a suit that was supposed to
protect him from the elements, which covered and protected his whole body, all except for his head area. As he rose up into the atmosphere, became
depressurized which caused edema. Now, edema is a condition in which the body becomes so depressurized that it causes the body to expand and actually
"bloat," due to high altitudes, the fluids in the body expand causing this bloat. The protective suits they were wearing saved the body from adema,
but the head was exposed, therefore, the only part of the body that was affected was the head.....making it a few times larger than the average size
of a human beings head, also, the high pressure affected the persons eyes (pressure in the head area causes eyes to potrude and become black and blue
around the whole eye socket area), therefore....when the ballooon crashed with the occupants in it, they appeared to look similar to what we believe
to be the greys...
When somebody witnesses something so unexplainable, such as a deformed human body, we have something called selective perception...a psycholological
process in which we are predisposed to want to believe things as we see them.
