We can make some physics-based armchair observations about this video to determine what it isn’t. It isn’t a missile or conventional aircraft and
it isn’t entirely out of control.
The structural integrity of that object would have to be super strong for a missile or aircraft to survive that first impact, and they ain’t made
that way. Missiles and aircraft are made as lightweight as possible. They don’t bounce off of the ground, so scratch that possibility. It is
We can plainly see in the initial seconds of the video that the craft makes some effort to alter its downward slant as it nears the ground. A
missile or a plane could do that, of course, but they have been eliminated as possibilities. What we see is an object that seems to be under partial
That low angle of attack is not that of a free-falling body. Certainly it cannot be a meteorite or space junk moving at that relatively slow
velocity. We must suppose there is some force keeping the thing almost airborne as shown by the attempt to alter its downward slant at near the final
seconds. And that assumption is buttressed by the visual evidence that the craft is not out of control by tumbling or erratic motions at any point in
its decent either before and especially after that bounce. Finally, it does not seem to lose much if any velocity as it bounces off of the ground.
Without a doubt virtually anything we can think of would have lost power and disintegrated at that point. It did not, it gave every appearance of
trying to still recover.
What we seem to know about UFOs? UFOs don’t seem to “fly.” They give every indication that they avoid, repel or eliminate mass in some
fashion. With this object, it is difficult to understand how it remains stable and initially can bounce of the ground relatively unscathed. How can
anything do that? The answer may be that with the first and even second contact with the desert, that its bulk was partially shielded such that the
structural stresses of the contact were greatly reduced and this allowed it to almost recover. Yes, to literally bounce off the ground. Yet, its
altitude control system was failing or had failed and its aerodynamic shape was not enough to provide sufficient lift to keep it airborne. After the
first ground strike, anything not powered in some fashion could not have maintained the long arch of its gradual descent again to the ground. In
fact, it almost seemed to have won its battle with the ground. I maintain that long arch also speaks of an internal power supply that negating the
pure forces of gravity to some extent and provide it a bit longer life than nature would allow, thus, defying our expectations of what we witness.
If that seems a rather wild and bizarre explanation, I need to point out that the Mexican crash of 1974 and the secondary (near) Roswell crash of 1947
both gave indications that UFOs are tough hombres, in that they can sustain mid-air collisions with small aircraft with only minor physical damage
and/or cannot be totally destroyed when striking the ground, leaving skid marks etc.
I have not claimed that the craft was alien. However, given that the camera work is highly professional and the taken in the desert, there is little
doubt but what was recorded wa a test of a UFO-type craft. And I don’t see how anyone can deny that the US government has been working on
developing our own versions since day one of our recognition that those were mighty strange craft flitting around in our air and how nifty it would be
to have our own.
