Has anyone on this board done research on the development and invention of laser's, kevlar, integrated circuits and fiber optics ?. I am aware of Colonel Philip Corso claims. I would like to investigate IBM, Hughes Aircraft, Bell Labs, Dow Corning and Dupont to see it they where actually capable of producing these goods from terrestrial origins. i highly doubt that the companies i have named had knowledge of where new inventions came from if they where from extra terrestrial sources that is. I would speculate that they would have been leaked in from self companies the military owned.

I did a paper for a history of technology course on the transistor, and in my reading also learned about the history of the integrated circuit, the direct descendant of the transistor. Those two inventions definitely had terrestrial origins. I personally think all your listed inventions had terrestrial origins, but those two I can guarantee did.

I read that fiber optics and night-vision had been developed using extraterrestrial technology. I don't know how true that is though.
