The United States Air Force retired to the custody of the National Archives its records on Project BLUE BOOK relating to the investigations of unidentified flying .

Air Force Regulation , Unidentified Flying Objects Reporting In his book see external links Ruppelt described the demoralization of the Blue Book staff and the stripping of their investigative duties following the Robertson Panel jurisdiction. As an immediate consequence of the Robertson Panel recommendations, in February , the Air Force issued Regulation , ordering air base officers to publicly discuss UFO incidents only if they were judged to have been solved, and to classify all the unsolved cases to keep them out of the public eye. The nd AISS was assigned the task of investigating only the most important UFO cases with intelligence or national security implications. These cases were deliberately siphoned away from Blue Book, leaving Blue Book to deal with the more trivial reports. In addition, UFOs called "UFOBs" were defined as "any airborne object which by performance, aerodynamic characteristics, or unusual features, does not conform to any presently known aircraft or missile type, or which cannot be positively identified as a familiar object. If they were unidentified, the media was to be told only that the situation was being analyzed. Blue Book was also ordered to reduce the number of unidentified to a minimum. All this work was done secretly. The public face of Blue Book continued to be the official Air Force investigation of UFOs, but the reality was it had essentially been reduced to doing very little serious investigation, and had become almost solely a public relations outfit with a debunking mandate. To cite one example, by the end of , the number of cases listed as unsolved had dipped to barely 0. Eventually, Ruppelt requested reassignment; at his departure in August , his staff had been reduced from more than ten precise numbers of personnel varied to just two subordinates and himself. His temporary replacement was a noncommissioned officer. Most who succeeded him as Blue Book director exhibited either apathy or outright hostility to the subject of UFOs, or were hampered by a lack of funding and official support. Ruppelt wrote that Hardin "thinks that anyone who is even interested [in UFOs] is crazy. They bore him.

The Lubbock Lights episode is based on a real-life mass sighting of strange lights in the sky one teenager even took photos of them. Operation Paperclip , the Allied operation to spirit Nazi scientists out of Germany ahead of the Soviets to help with various top-secret projects and help found NASA , really happened. Likewise, many of the characters in the series are real. His character arc is true to life, too: initially sceptical, he eventually became enough of a believer to call for further scientific investigation of the events he was hired to explain away.

Hynek with floating alien: this may or may not have really happened. If hundreds of people saw strange lights in the sky, all that means is that there were strange lights in the sky, not that a fleet of alien spaceships were flying by. Even back in the '50s there were plenty of down-to-earth explanations for what people were seeing.

Mass hysteria brought on by the heightened tensions of the Cold War was one; the rapid advances in military technology after World War II was another. After hacking his way through the vegetation alongside the highway, he claims to have encountered a metallic hovering object that used some kind of heat ray on him.

While DesVergers was both terrified and slightly singed when he returned to the car, it was the grass samples that were later taken at the site of the supposed attack that remain the biggest mystery. Burnt in ways difficult to replicate even in a lab, they suggest something definitely unusual happened out there, no matter what your stance on UFOs.

Other episodes are based on slightly shakier material, such as the Barney and Betty Hill abduction case. On the third day of a lengthy drive, the married couple saw a bright light in the sky following them. CreditShell R.

This time, however, there was no public agency to accommodate reports of incidents, even when hundreds of witnesses were involved.

We learned through documents from the Pentagon program, and from interviews with participants, that the mystery of the elusive flying objects is still far from solved , and that not enough was being done to address that problem almost 50 years since the close of Blue Book. Once a U. According to government officials at the time, the estimate was rejected by General Hoyt Vandenberg, the Air Force chief of staff.

From then on, the proponents of the off-planet hypothesis lost ground, with Vandenberg and others insisting that conventional explanations be found. Project Sign eventually evolved into Project Blue Book, with the aim of convincing the public that flying saucers could be explained.

Yet behind the scenes, authorities grappled with something sobering: well-documented U.

In , the office of Maj. John Samford, the Air Force director of intelligence, briefed the F.
