David Rudiak Joins the Dream Team

Written by Seraphin. Posted in UFO's in the news

We have expanded the team yet again. Dr. David Rudiak, who has done a great deal of work on the “Ramey memo” has accepted our invitation to join us as a consulting researcher along with Tony Bragalia and Chris Rutkowski. I’ll add here that we had planned on this long ago, but Tom thought I had sent the invitation to David and I thought he had. When we learned that neither had, I then sent one.
Rudiak (seen here at the International UFO Museum in Roswell, photo courtesy of Tom Carey) is one of the experts (and maybe only expert) about what happened in Ramey’s office on July 8, 1947. He wrote to me that, “I’ve reconstructed the debris in a computer ray-tracer and proven there is only one radar target there and probably one balloon (or what would fit in shoe box), in other words NOT what you would expect from a multi-balloon, multi-target Mogul but perfectly consistent with Ramey and Newton’s description of a singular balloon/target and Dubose/Marcel’s substituted weather balloon.”
He also said, “Another of my Roswell specialties are my various histories of the period. I have expertise in how the story was reported in numerous news outlets, not just a few. I think I have compiled the most extensive collection of U.S. and international Roswell stories anywhere. These stories present many angles and contradictions that just a few articles do not provide and tell us a lot about how the cover-up was handled. E.g., I have found only two or three newspapers out of hundreds carrying a rare AP sub-version quoting Sheriff Wilcox declining to answer further questions about the “disc” saying he was ‘working with those fellows at the base.’ That I consider to be very telling and corroboration for what his family was telling us decades later. Why are Marcel, Brazel, Wilcox, Ramey, and the press release telling sometimes very different stories, often contradicting the balloon story? Why do the AP, UP, and RDR versions of the press release differ in many details?”
David’s expertise isn’t limited to just the Roswell case, but includes the history of the time. He emailed me that, “And I think I may have the most extensive collection of UFO reports from the area, which I compiled from reviewing every regional paper I could lay my hands on. This demonstrates that Roswell didn’t happen in a vacuum, which may have prompted Ramey, Kalberer, and White Sands commander Turner debunking the saucers over a week before Roswell blew up. One very interesting news article I have from a Las Cruces newspaper recounts how on the night of July 8 a fireball steaking out of the south over the Organ mountains broke up, followed by search lights from White Sands Proving Grounds sweeping the sky afterward for an indefinite period of time.”
He, along with Brad Sparks, reworked the mathematics of the Mogul flight number 4, which the skeptics claim is responsible for the debris, showing that it did not come nearly as close as Charles Moore, a Mogul engineer, suggested. (I’ll point out here the Moore’s calculations couldn’t bring the balloon array closer than seventeen miles.) Rudiak’s figures suggested that the balloon array launched from Alamogordo wouldn’t have come as close as Moore suggested. More importantly, it appears that there was no flight number 4.
Combine David’s training and research with the expertise and knowledge of other team members, including their various experiences in researching UFOs, participation in the military, and their understanding of the history of UFOs from the beginning (which is to say as far back as the nineteenth century and farther) and allows for the most comprehensive look at the Roswell case ever undertaken. David’s assistance and knowledge will prove invaluable in this research project.

The first official trailer for Ridley Scott’s upcoming movie Prometheus debuted today. As we reported earlier this week, the first footage from the upcoming film was released on Monday in the form of a small clip that served as a teaser for the official movie trailer released today.

The Hollywood Reporter describes the newly released trailer as being “filled with quick cuts of space crafts, planetary landscapes, all-terrain vehicles, the interior of either a space craft or a space station and Charlize Theron running for her life.”

The plot of the movie revolves around a team of explorers who discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth. The tagline that concludes the trailer reads, “They went looking for our beginning, what they found could be our end.”

Watch the Prometheus trailer below.

Can you see the face in this UFO? Unbelievable… This is no BS Check it out!

NASA Kepler Mission – Kepler-22b Planet. Released to the public on December 5th, 2011 – but found by the NASA Kepler Telescope over 2 years ago. Kepler-22b is located over 600 light years away and NASA even went on to say, that it could have “Continents, Oceans and Creatures already living on it.” What do you think? *Photo Art of Kepler-22b is owned and all copyrights go to NASA and the Kepler Mission Research Program*

The “UFO” that panicked Kansas – CBS News

The "UFO" that panicked Kansas

Is it any wonder that slightly cowed Cowleyites believed this to be a UFO? Because technology lies at the very heart of Kansas–why, Sprint is headquartered there–the locals filmed this troubling sight. The saucer must have been at least 30 feet wide.

The Moons Of Earth?

Earth Must Have Another Moon, Say Astronomers

A study of the way our planet temporarily captures asteroids suggests that Earth should have at least one extra moon at any one time
*

(Technologyreview.com) Back in 2006, the Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona noticed that a mysterious body had begun orbiting the Earth. This object had a spectrum that was remarkably similar to the titanium white paint used on Saturn V rocket stages and, indeed, a number of rocket stages are known to orbit the Sun close to Earth.

But this was not an object of ours. Instead, 2006 RH120, as it became known, turned out to be a tiny asteroid just a few metres across–a natural satellite like the Moon. It was captured by Earth’s gravity in September 2006 and orbited us until June 2007 when it wandered off into the Solar System in search of a more interesting neighbour.

2006 RH120 was the first reliably documented example of a temporary moon.

But there should be many more examples, say Mikael Granvik and buddies at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. Today these guys say they have modelled the way the Earth-Moon system captures these objects to understand how frequently we can expect to have additional moons and how long they should stay in orbit.

The answer is straightforward to state. “At any given time, there should be at least one natural Earth satellite of 1-meter diameter orbiting the Earth,” say Granvik and co. These objects should hang around for about 10 months and make about three revolutions of the planet. That means Earth ought to have a metre-sized moon right now.

This is of more than academic interest. NASA has repeatedly said it is interested in sending humans to a near Earth asteroid. What better than to kick off with one that is in orbit here?

Finding a suitable candidate will be tricky though. Asteroids that are likely to become temporary satellites in the near future will be small and therefore hard to see. What’s more, they will be subject to many forces pushing and pulling them so that predicting when and if they will ever be captured will be next to impossible.

But improved monitoring might help spot them when they get here, which might allow a launch to be planned in advance. Granvik and co conclude: “The scientific potential of being able to ?rst remotely characterize a meteoroid and then visit and bring it back to Earth would be unprecedented.”

Note:  What if some of those “moons” aren’t asteroids at all? -SW
