My Last Words on Space Invaders

“In a recent 60 Minutes interview, Lue Elizondo claimed the aircraft were undetectable on radar and could pull “6-to-700 g-forces” and “fly at 13,000 miles an hour.” And on Wednesday he claimed more than just reports exist.”

The Fox News report from that paragon of reporting Tucker Carlson (cited above) goes on to reveal Elizondo’s claim that, “The United States government is in possession of exotic material,” Elizondo claimed. “More analysis needs to be done.”

This is the former government employee who is driving the latest flying saucer mania. He sounds very sane…and he probably is…because this is a scam.

First of all, it is pretty damn near impossible for the government to prove that it isn’t secretly hoarding “exotic materials” garnered from crashed UFOs. This claim puts the government in the uncomfortable position of having to prove that something doesn’t exist. (If their technology is so advanced, why do their spacecraft ever crash at all?)

But, wait, like the salesman said, there’s more:

1) If these unidentified aerial phenomena are undetectable by radar, how have we been detecting them on radar plots that have been distributed via social media?

2) If they are undetectable by radar, how are we clocking their speeds? (Yes, I know there are other methods but it is pretty difficult to calculate speeds of aerial objects when there are no fixed points of reference, which are difficult to find in mid-air situations.)

3) Thirteen thousand miles an hour is only half as fast as the launch vehicles we use to throw things into orbit. In the overall scheme of things, it’s not that’s not all that fast..but there is no way known to us to generate those velocities without some kind of energy bloom being produced.

4) The objects are thought to be generating 600–700 gees of acceleration. Human bodies can only take 9 gees of acceleration. At 600 gees there is no conceivable biological entity that would not be turned into strawberry jam if, indeed, their blood were red. (Please, no inertial drive fans.)

Given the alleged performance characteristics of these phenomena, it is obvious that these objects, if they exist at all, are almost certainly unmanned drones. Until those drones…
