Night vision, Fiber optics & Microchips... Reverse engineered from Roswell?
Let's take a closer look at these technologies....
Night Vision - Technology gleaned from reverse engineering Roswell UFO?
Answer: No way, no how....
Although night vision did not really become mainstream until the 1960's in the Vietnam War, the technology and research had been in place well before
the 1947 Roswell incident. Night vision was a marrying of infrared research and television technology.
Night Vision History:
Modern night vision innovations, beginning in the early 1940’s, have forever changed the politics of combat and self
preservation. In WW2, the U.S., Great Britain, and Germany each worked on basic night vision technology involving an infrared sniper scope. This early
version scope proved cumbersome and marginally effective. It wasn’t until the 1960’s and the Vietnam era did the military see the first generation of
night vision devices. The obvious advantages of the technology encouraged further investment in innovation.
Fiber Optics - Technology gleaned from reverse engineering Roswell UFO?
Answer: Definitely NOT...
This technology has been around at least in crude, rudementary fashion since the 1930's. Roswell had nothing to do with this technology...
Fiber Optic History:
The first person known to have demonstrated image transmission through a bundle of optical fibers was Heinrich Lamm, a
medical student in Munich. His goal was to look inside inaccessible parts of the body, and in a 1930 paper he reported transmitting the image of a
light bulb filament through a short bundle. This was the first instance of "fiber optics" being used.
Microchip technology - Technology gleaned from reverse engineering Roswell UFO?
The roots of microchip technology go back to military industries such as Fairchild... also the date the patent was granted was well after the 1947
Roswell incident - plenty of time to crack open alien technology and figure out how it works. One thing for sure however - IF it was reverse
engineered from Roswell technology it only sped up the inevitable miniaturization of integrated circuits.
In 1959 researcher Jack Kilby and Texas Instruments received U.S. patent #3,138,743 for miniaturized electronic circuits.
Technologies that may have come from alien reverse engineering:
WITH LINKS, JUST AS YOU ASKED
* Anti-gravity - if it exists (and I believe it does)
* Shape shifting metals and airframes
