If you read a bit about the UFO phenomena you will notices that there is a shocking number of comments from highly classified people regarding alien technology and life elsewhere in the cosmos.

Today we have interesting comments from government officials, military personnel, scientists, politicians and astronauts who all seem to agree that life is not limited to Earth. Conspiracy theory or not, the truth is that many people believe that we are not alone in the universe and that the mysterious UFO sightings (which have increased over the years) are not solely the result of secret military technology.

But why are we still surprised when we hear about Alien technology and UFO’s?

“The number of habitable worlds in our galaxy is certainly in the tens of billions, minimum, and we haven’t even talked about the moons. And the number of galaxies we can see, other than our own, is about 100 billion.” – Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer at California’s SETI Institute (source)


The possibility that life exists, elsewhere in the universe is greater than ever. Can we handle the truth?

Perhaps the most shocking comments about Alien life and the UFO phenomena were made by the second director of Lockheed Skunkworks, Ben Rich, a man who oversaw the construction of some of the most advanced military aircrafts in the history of mankind: the stealth fighter and the 17A nighthawk.

According to James Godwell, an aerospace journalist who wrote for several publications like Jane’s Defense Weekly, Aviation Week and Space Technology, and Interavia, during some of his interviews with highly ranked individuals in the military and aerospace industry, some of his contacts said “we have things out there that are literally out of this world, better than Star Trek or what you see in the movies.”

Just before his death, Ben Rich talked about the UFO phenomenon and the truth behind the conspiracy.

“We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do it.” 

“We now have technology to take ET home. No it won’t take someone’s lifetime to do it. There is an error in the equations. We know what it is. We now have the capability to travel to the stars.”

“There are two types of UFOs — the ones we build and the ones ‘they’ build.”

According to statements from James Godwell, he knew Ben Rich very well and he stated that ten days before Ben Rich died, they spoke and Ben Rich opened up about UFO’s.

“About ten days before he died, I was speaking to Ben on the telephone at the USC Medical Center in LA. And he said, ‘Jim, we have things out in the desert that are fifty years beyond what you can comprehend. They have about forty-five hundred people at the Lockheed Skunk works. What have they been doing for the last eighteen or twenty years? They’re building something.’”

According to SETI Institute’s Seth Shostak, with trillions of planets out there, chances are too good to discount the idea that Alien life exists.

“If you extrapolate on the planets they discovered, there are a trillion planets in the galaxy. That’s a lot of places for life,” Shostak said, as quoted by ABC. “We know that the majority of stars have planets,” but what “fraction of stars has planets that are more like the earth? It might be one in five.”

“The chances of finding it I think are good and if that happens it will happen in the next 20 years depending on the financing,” he added in written testimony, according to BuzzFeed.” (source)

According to John Andrews, another Lockheed engineer who had direct communication with Ben Rich, the former director of Lockheed Skunkworks firmly believed in UFO’s, and when asked if he believed in the existence of the mysterious objects Ben Rich responded:

“Yes, I’m a believer in both categories. I feel everything is possible. Many of our man-made UFOs are Un-Funded Opportunities. There are two types of UFOs, the ones we build, and the ones they build.” 

“We now know how to travel to the stars. There is an error in the equations, and we have figured it out, and now know how to travel to the stars and it won’t take a lifetime to do it. It is time to end all the secrecy on this, as it no longer poses a national security threat, and make the technology available for use in the private sector. There are many in the intelligence community who would like to see this stay in the black and not see the light of day. We now have the technology to take ET home.”

Bill McDonalds, a forensic illustrator for the aerospace industry, and who was a good friend of John Andrews also talked about Ben Rich and UFO’s:

“It was Ben Rich’s opinion that the public should not be told. He believed they could not handle the truth, ever. Only in the last months of his decline did he begin to feel that the international corporate Board of Directors’ dealing with the ‘Subject’ could represent a bigger problem to citizens’ personal freedoms under the United States Constitution than the presence of off world visitors themselves.”

It seems that after all, it isn’t that hard to believe in the commentaries of astronauts, engineers, government officials and other individuals who have opened up about Alien Life and the UFO phenomena.

The only questions that we need to ask is: Is our society ready for the truth? And how much would life as we know it change, knowing that we have more than one cosmic neighbor?
