Von Braun at Roswell

The following is an incident from “The Stargate Chronicles”, my future book. These incidents are a small part of a greater story, but with them, the Big Picture begins to unfold.

Von Braun at his desk at Marshall Space Flight Center in May 1964, with models of the Saturn rocket family. Dr. von Braun became Director of the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center on July 1, 1960.
In 1947, a controversial event took place in New Mexico near the town of Roswell. The “Roswell Incident,” as it has come to be known, remains the paramount case in UFO crash/retrieval history. In addition to the claims of a downed alien ship, alien bodies were said to have been recovered from the debris.

The USAF and Federal Government have kept a steadfast opinion that the object in question was a high altitude balloon project, code named: Mogul. The project was designed to detect nuclear blasts in the USSR. The bodies that were recovered, according to the USAF, were parachute test dummies that had been released high above the desert, and had eventually drifted into the “balloon” crash area. The USAF finally settled on this fabricated version of events and passed it off to the American public as truth.

During my long years of service in our national space program, I was very fortunate to come to know and exchange some very exciting data with former German scientists, who had been brought to the USA under Operation Paper Clip following WW II. These men were the elite of the German rocket programs controlled by Adolph Hitler. On many occasions I had the distinct privilege of speaking with Dr. Wernher von Braun, the leader of the elite group, and several other scientists who were assigned to the ABMA (Army Ballistics Missile Agency) launch crews at the Cape Canaveral launch sites. Eventually, these same men were incorporated into the new National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) organization. During the periodic MFA (Manned Flight Awareness) meetings that were held at Cocoa Beach, I was able to talk freely and briefly with such scientists, particularly Dr. von Braun.

On one such occasion, he and I had taken a break and stepped out of the Cocoa Beach Ramada Inn into the back patio. I admitted that I was aware that he and his German Scientific team were located not too far from the crash site at that time. They were launching captured V-2 rockets from the White Sands Testing Range. On this night, I asked him a question concerning the Roswell Incident that caused his eyebrows to raise.

Did the Roswell Incident in fact happen, was an alien craft recovered along with alien bodies? Did you have a chance to go to the crash site?”

Dr von Braun was a cigarette smoker and he lit one up. He thought for a second, then proceeded to talk freely about his inspection of the crashed craft.

He trusted me to hear such astonishing events because I vowed to not report it to newspapers, magazines, television, etc. I never broke that vow. Since he is deceased, and the incident happened over fifty years ago, I am now disclosing what I heard. I have a right to speak about anything — even things that, according to certain agencies, “do not exist.”

Dr. von Braun explained how he and his (unnamed, for now) associates had been taken to the crash site after most of the military were pulled back. They did a quick analysis of what they found. He told me the craft did not appear to be made of metal as we know metal on earth. He said it seemed to be created from something biological, like skin. I was lost as to what he indicated, other than thinking perhaps the craft was “alive.”

The recovered bodies were temporarily being kept in a nearby medical tent. They were small, very frail and had large heads. Their eyes were large. Their skin was grayish and reptilian in texture. He said it looked similar to the skin texture of rattle snakes he’d seen several times at White Sands. His inspection of the debris had even him puzzled: very thin, aluminum colored, like silvery chewing gum wrappers. Very light and extremely strong. The interior of the craft was nearly bare of equipment, as if the creatures and craft were part of a single unit.

That’s when I became lost in the moment. We returned to the awards ceremony, in which he participated, later bidding farewell. I went home with my head spinning from all I had heard. Keeping this quiet for many years was very difficult, especially with the temptations of having many friends and associates who believe in UFOs, ETs, etc. I never released this amazing data to Major Keyhoe and NICAP, or the public, until now. I considered my honor sacred when a vow was made.


  1. We The People of humankind’s general populace can not be certain that TPTB (the powers that be) have not explored/probed Cydonia.

    By unlikely coincidence (life is full of them), a tech working in the Viking (Mars lander) lab showed me a photo sent back from the Viking-on-Mars probe. The photo was shot while Viking was orbiting. Without any doubt, the so-called “wind-blown, sand-eroded pile of sand & rock” is a face on that pyramid. Period! The fairy tales told by any & all godvernment entities are outright lies. I saw the photo. The lab tech concurred.

    BTW, to try to demonstrate my statement is truthful, I saw the photo in the room behind where the Viking mock-up was in — in 1978-79 at Martin-Marietta Aerospace in Denver, south of Columbine, against the Rocky Mountain foothills. If some problem appeared on the Viking on Mars, this lab crew duplicated the problem in the mock-up lab, created the solution and proved it on their mock-up, and sent “the fix” by radio to Mars. I worked on NASA test equipment and met a handful of techs who came to see the person who made their test gear work better than factory specs.

  2. Do you know for certain that probes have not been sent to Europa and other places of interest?

    I agree with Jeb (commenter 8/22/2012) that probes have already been dispatched. Most likely telemetry/data has already been sent back and amassed into intel.

    Projects in one W Advanced Energy group included exploratory space craft to far-off destinations in our solar system. I was only lightly involved in one probe each to an asteroid and a Saturn moon. Probably more happened.

    If, IF such missions are disclosed to the Public Domain, you can be sure the info is sanitized.

  3. I’m sure NASA has sent probes to many places and not made it public. This latest rover might be a cover up for far more sophisticated probes that went out at the same time, but to areas that are almost guaranteed to have life. Researching all the available info and reported events since Roswell I wouldn’t be surprised by much that came from our government, UNLESS they came out and admitted the existence of ET’s and ALL documentation regarding it/them. That will NEVER happen though…

  4. I am from Italy. There may be life in the ocean of the moon Europa.
    Why NASA don’t send a probe there…?
    Is there a cover up or secret Defense probes to that moon…?

  5. Hello Clark,

    I am from India and i would like to know why NASA is not sending probes to the Cydonia region on Mars? Am sure you will be aware of the fact that there are certain anomalies there like the ‘face’ and the ‘pyramids’. Am totally confused as there are many people who have declared this subject closed by stating that this was caused by the light and shadow trick. Is there are cover up? What is your opinion on this? I would love to hear from you via email.

    Thanks and Warm Regards

  6. I suspected that perhaps more monkeys were involved. I check it out. No monkey’s involved. The dummies made dummies of all the US Military. And being in the US Navy, I can say that is very accurate.
    The Army, Navy and Air Forces on planet earth are actually run and controlled by Sargents, Petty Officers, Warrant Officers, etc. the BRASS sit in chairs and get all the credit.
    Look at what FOOLS the present Senate, Congress and White House are now causing. It is destroying our beloved nation, the USA. NO dummies were NOT dropped to cause it in the first place. Aliens were recovered at Roswell. PERIOD.

  7. If the military lacked the sophistication to identify a weather balloon as a flying saucer, well that’s pretty lame….The cover up made fools of the military…and continued with the stories they told later about the dummies.. Maybe they were dropping the dummies that made up the first cover-up????
