It wasn't suddenly and people were looking for something to replace vacuum tubes. It wasn't difficult to see that vacuum tubes are not the way forward with computers; they filled an entire room.

From what I've heard the things we got from UFO's are, Velcro, Lasers, Radar, Nuclear power, Microwaves, optical Data storage, Microprocessors, Kevlar, and just about anything else under the sun.

No, the story is that the US government got contacted by the Greys in the 50's or earlier. They made a deal with the greys - abductions for technology. [edit on 19-9-2007 by Copernicus]

The fact that alien saucers apparently crash more then amtrack trains is just maybe another reason we really don't want their technology even if we had it.

The Invention of VELCRO ® - George de Mestral
By Mary Bellis
One lovely summer day in 1948, a Swiss amateur-mountaineer and inventor decided to take his dog for a nature hike. The man and his faithful companion both returned home covered with burrs, the plant seed-sacs that cling to animal fur in order to travel to fertile new planting grounds. The man neglected his matted dog, and with a burning curiosity ran to his microscope and inspected one of the many burrs stuck to his pants. He saw all the small hooks that enabled the seed-bearing burr to cling so viciously to the tiny loops in the fabric of his pants. George de Mestral raised his head from the microscope and smiled thinking, "I will design a unique, two-sided fastener, one side with stiff hooks like the burrs and the other side with soft loops like the fabric of my pants. I will call my invention 'velcro' a combination of the word velour and crochet. It will rival the zipper in its ability to fasten."

when you think about it in an infinite universe there "is" is alien life forms intelligent and unintelligent and further more if you think about all of mans history and then come to the 1900's and present day look at the technological advances now why is it that in one century we make more advances than we made in our entire history?

So your telling us that aliens highly more advanced then we are had to have approvel by our government to abduct people in exchange for technology. riiiight!! Do you really think that aliens would let the government say to them look aliens you can abduct any person you want but we are not going to let you abduct people unless you give us some of your technology. like aliens couldnt abduct people without the government knowing and even if the government knew how could they stop them i rest my case
