Defense Agency Studying Anti-Gravity, Other ‘Exotic Tech’
Wormholes, invisibility cloaks, and anti-gravity — it’s not science fiction, it’s just some of the exotic things the U.S. government has been researching.
A massive document dump by the Defense Intelligence Agency shows some of the wild research projects the United States government was, at least, funding through the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program known as AATIP.
And another lesser-known entity called the Advanced Aerospace Weapons System Application Program or AAWSAP
The Defense Intelligence Agency has recently released a large number of documents to different news outlets and individuals who have filed Freedom of Information Act requests.
Of particular interest are some 1,600 pages released to Vice News, which spelled out, among other things, some of the, “exotic speculative technologies, including invisibility cloaks, traversable wormholes, stargates, negative energy, antigravity, high frequency gravitational wave communications, and an (obviously) never-carried out proposal to tunnel a hole through the moon using nuclear explosions.”
What can we learn from these newly released documents? Nick Pope worked for the UK’s Ministry of Defence on the UFO phenomenon and weighed in on the topic.
“Here’s what we know, some of the most extraordinary topics ever to have been discussed and considered by the United States government were looked at as part of this work, there’s no getting away from that,” Pope said.
“When the DIA wrote to Congress about this — and these letters and these studies are now in the public domain — it turned out there were 38 research documents produced, and they covered the most extraordinary things: anti-gravity, invisibility, warp-drive, wormholes, stargates. This sort of thing sounds like science fiction and a lot of people maybe say, ‘well, is this legitimate to spend taxpayer’s dollars on?’ My response to that is, ‘absolutely.’ Look, this was a $24 million contract — something like the Large Hadron Collider or the James Webb Space Telescope, these are things that cost billions of dollars,” he said.
What about the timing of releasing a large number of FOIA requests now?
“This is speculation but I’ll throw it out there anyway, why not,” Pope said. “We have the James Webb Space Telescope now up, the first results are going to be available certainly this year, maybe this summer, and who knows what it will find. Something if you think you’re going to find something if you think there might be something out there, then get out ahead of the narrative, rather than react to it, start putting things out there and start speculating, you know maybe we’re not alone.”
What are the other takeaways from these documents?“The big development is that there is a consolidated posting of all the material that’s previously been posted, plus new material too,” Pope said. “For the first time, rather than part of it leaking out, part of it going to a journalist here or a researcher there, there’s one single place, officially verified where people can get all this material, old and new. It’s now up on the Defense Intelligence Agency website in their electronic reading room under the heading AATIP.
What can we expect next? How will this affect the future of disclosure?
“Congress has made it very clear, the time for joking about all this is over. Senators and congresspeople are saying ‘no, we need to look at this seriously and we want answers.’ I think it’s reflective of the fact that we all want answers too, and I think we’re going to get them,” Pope said.
A Brief History of the Secret Space Program
Shrouded in mystery, the existence of the Secret Space Program is a closely guarded secret, but information from government whistleblowers, intelligence operatives and former astronauts have been surfacing for decades. Here are a few of the most notable events:
Flying Saucers Are Born
On June 24th, 1947, Kenneth Arnold was on a routine search for a missing plane that had gone down near Mt. Rainier in Washington state. The weather was clear and calm, and Arnold had just given up his search when he noticed a bright flash in one of the mirrors of his plane. He maneuvered to get a better look and was shocked to see a group of saucer-like objects flying in formation at incredible speed. He landed in Yakima, Washington and immediately relayed what he had seen. The next day, Arnold was interviewed about the incident, sparking a news sensation that spread across the US. The term “flying saucer” was born, and the country was soon gripped in a rash of UFO sightings. The military denied any involvement and speculation grew.
Roswell Captivates the World
Soon a report of another kind surfaced, this time coming from Roswell, New Mexico. It was rumored that a mysterious craft had crash-landed in the desert and that the bodies recovered were non-human. The US Air Force stated that the object was a weather balloon, but witnesses offered a different story, claiming materials recovered from the crash site exhibited incredible strength and durability, and that strange creature had been on board.
