Roswell and Zone “51”

March 10, 2018

In mid 1947 something crashed at a ranch near the city of Roswell , New Mexico. The U.S military stated that in fact it was merely a conventional weather balloon.

In the late 1970s ufologist began to say that the military were covering another reality. Theories said that an alien spacecraft had crash-landed near Roswell and that the extraterrestrial occupants had been taken by the military to make experiments and  other studies on them.

In 1990 the U.S military pusblished two reports disclosing the true nature of the crashed object :  a nuclear test surveillance balloon from Project Mogul.

Those reports were also published to put an end to all those  “alienal theories” but the Roswell incident continues to be of interest in popular media; theories about the real nature of the crash and its ocupants persist. Roswell has been described as ” the world’s most famous , most exhaustively investigated , and most thoroughly debunked UFO claim”.

The city of Roswell:

Roswell is a city in New Mexico; in 2010 the population was of  48 411 inhabitants, making it the fifth-largest city in New Mexico. It is a center for irrigated farming, dairying, ranching, manufacturing, distribution, and petroleum production.

The city is also the home of New Mexico Military Institute founded in 1891.

Roswell is particulary well known because its name is related to the Roswell UFO incident even if the site of the crash happened at 75 (miles(121km) of the city.

Roswell is a popular town for tourists from around the country because of its many alien-themed stores, restaurants, museums, and other attractions, including a McDonald’s location built in the form of a flying saucer.

Area “51”:

The United States air force facility commonly known as Area 51 is a highly classified remote detachment of Edwards Air Force base, within the Nevada test and training range. According to the C.I.A, the correct names for the facility are Homey airport and Groom lake , though the name Area 51 was used in a C.I.A document from the Vietnam war. It has also been referred to  as Dreamland and Paradise Land. The base’s current primary purpose is publicly unknown. However , based on historical evidence, it most likely supports the development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapon systems.

Series and movie around it:

We can talk about the famous series which carries the same name as the city “Roswell”. The show began in 1999 and lasted until 2002.

The series is based on the Roswell young adult book series, written by Melinda Metz and edited by Laura J.Burns.

Roswell is about teenage alien/human hybrids living in Roswell, New Mexico who attempted to survive as humans and hide their alien sides, while trying to learn more about their alien powers, as well as figuring out how to get home.

The series was filmed on location in West Covina, California, USA. Fans purchased the original location of the “Crashdown Cafe” and converted it into a real restaurant, later named “Citrus Grill”.

We can aslo talk about the movie Roswell made in 1994 by Jeremy Kagan.

the plot: Beginning at a 30-year reunion for members of a military nuclear bomb unit, flashbacks are presented that follow the attempts of Major Jesse Marcel to discover the truth about strange debris found on a local rancher’s field in July of 1947. Told by his superiors that what he has found is nothing more than a downed weather balloon, Marcel maintains his military duty until the weight of the truth, however out of this world it may be, forces him to piece together what really occurred. Adapted from real-life events portrayed in the book UFO Crash at Roswell by Kevin Randle and Donald Schmitt.

We can see that the mystery of Roswell and the UFO crash incident still hasn’t got any answers and the theories still persist. Maybe one day the truth will be reavealed …. maybe it won’t . For now, the only thing we can do is wonder, imagine what really happened and try to figure it out what or who may have been in the spacecraft.
