Bigelow Aerospace Had a Secret DoD UFO Study Contract (Update)

Glowing Auras and 'Black Money': The Pentagon's Mysterious U.F.O. Program, New York Times

"Contracts obtained by The Times show a congressional appropriation of just under $22 million beginning in late 2008 through 2011. The money was used for management of the program, research and assessments of the threat posed by the objects. The funding went to Mr. Bigelow's company, Bigelow Aerospace, which hired subcontractors and solicited research for the program. Under Mr. Bigelow's direction, the company modified buildings in Las Vegas for the storage of metal alloys and other materials that Mr. Elizondo and program contractors said had been recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena. Researchers also studied people who said they had experienced physical effects from encounters with the objects and examined them for any physiological changes. In addition, researchers spoke to military service members who had reported sightings of strange aircraft."

Keith's note: As is usually the case when a story like this appears one part or another of the BBC calls to ask me what is going on. I thought I'd invite an expert to appear on the Skype interview with me so my little green alien pal I bought at Ron Jons in Cocoa Beach made his first international Tee Vee appearance tonight to help me through the interview. Beam me up.


The government admits it studies UFOs. So about those Area 51 conspiracy theories ..., Washington Post

"For decades, Americans were told that Area 51 didn't really exist and that the U.S. government had no official interest in aliens or UFOs. Statements to the contrary, official-sounding people cautioned, were probably the musings of crackpots in tinfoil hats. Well, score one for the crackpots. The Pentagon has officially confirmed that there was, in fact, a $22 million government program to collect and analyze "anomalous aerospace threats" -- government-speak for UFOs."

On the Trail of a Secret Pentagon U.F.O. Program, NY Times

"Leslie interviewed the aerospace magnate Robert Bigelow, who also confirmed his participation, saying Americans were being held back from serious research into U.F.O.'s by "a juvenile taboo."

Alien Hunter Reveals the Most Disturbing Part of the Pentagon's UFO Program, Inverse

"For [Seth] Shostak, what's "a little disturbing" about the ordeal is that Bigelow, who has collaborated with NASA despite having no scientific background, has received so much money from the project. "[Bigelow] doesn't need more money," he explains. "He's a very likeable guy, but he's been convinced all along that we're being 'visited.' And it doesn't mean [aliens are visiting us] just because a person of note thinks it's true. The thing that's a little disturbing about this is that it seems a lot of the money for this study went to Bob Bigelow. I think that if you really wanted to investigate this stuff, the thing to do is to give this to scientists or experts in the field that don't have a dog in the fight."

UFO IPO-182 - Take me to your dealer: the Pentagon UFO story, crowdfunding, and Blink-182, Boing Boing

"The New York Times has an article about "Glowing Auras and 'Black Money': The Pentagon's Mysterious U.F.O. Program." $22 million spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, there are 2 declassified released videos that the reader is left to assume is proof of alien visitors (one of the authors of the articles is promoting a UFO book at this time). It has a lot of facts the NYTimes left out like the CEO of the newly formed crowdfunded company via the CROWDFUND ACT, Tom DeLonge. If you're wondering if it's that Tom DeLonge, yes! DeLonge was the guitarist and co-lead vocalist of the band Blink-182. It was reported that DeLonge allegedly left Blink-182 in 2015 because of aliens and national security."
