The 1950s was the time of the saucer, fully developed in America
from a concentrated effort starting in 1945.
The technology was sewn up as UFOs over the Capitol in
Washington DC was the pinnacle of Von Braun's work with Tesla
technology. He got what he wanted, more rocket projects.
Things moved on to rockets in the 1960s for the man on the moon
by the end of the decade (JFK, remember).
So 1969 rolls along with Nixon at the helm.
The Nam war was more profitable than sending men to the moon
but sitting in a land filled with rifles coming at you every day meant
the end of its existence.
Safer to go to the moon but where was it.
We end up in low earth orbit and what do we see, UFOs.
The internet comes along and youtube puts up UFO videos and a
year later more and more UFOs that are not UFOs at all show up.
We are safe again from questioning the technology.
