Classified MoD report reveals the secrets behind UFOs

08.05.2006


Experts have uncovered a secret Ministry of Defence (MoD) report asserting that UFOs exist, explaining the phenomena and assessing the security threat they may pose to the UK. The report was unearthed by academics at Sheffield Hallam University using the Freedom of Information Act.



The four year study, codenamed Project Condign, says that unexplained UFO sightings are caused by ’plasmas’, which create false memories of alien experiences and burn the skin. The report says these plasmas are rare and are created by ’more than one set of weather and electrically charged conditions’. Another of the causes may be ’by meteor re-entry, the meteors neither burning up completely nor impacting as meteorites but forming buoyant plasmas’

The report states that plasmas have been proven to cause responses in the temporal lobe of the human brain, and claims that this may cause observers to suffer extended memory retention and repeat experience which may be ’a key factor in influencing the more extreme reports... [which] are clearly believed by the ’victims’.’ It also says that radiated effects from these plasmas can in rare instances be enough to scorch the skin.


The report refers to UFOs as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs) and asserts that they pose little or no danger to aircraft unless violent manoeuvres are undertaken to either chase or avoid them. However, it does say that they have caused fatalities in other countries where aircraft have deliberately chased the UAP.

The report states ’that UAP exist is indisputable... [they] clearly can exhibit aerodynamic characteristics well beyond those of any known aircraft or missile - either manned or unmanned’.

The report’s official title is Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs) in the UK Air Defence Region and it was classified as Secret. It was written by a mysterious, un-named Defence Intelligence expert between 1996 and 2000 and was unearthed by Dr David Clarke from Sheffield Hallam University. Dr Clarke and colleague Gary Anthony used the Freedom of Information Act to gain access to the document.

Dr Clarke said: “This is another example of the establishment’s obsession with secrecy and how the Freedom of Information Act can chip away at this culture of silence.

"This report clears up many of the rumours surrounding UFOs and there is no reason it couldn’t have been made public earlier. For example, it reveals that there has been no collaboration between the UK and other countries on UFOs, which rules out the conspiracy theories of worldwide UFO cover-ups. The report also confirms that there have never been any artefacts from a UFO found in the UK.

“The fact remains that people are fascinated by the subject of UFOs and the MoD should have learned that 50 years of silence on the subject hasn’t made it go away. People continue to see UFOs and some of the most impressive sightings have been made by RAF and civil aviation pilots.

“The lack of any proper official study of what these things are has simply added to speculation and claims about conspiracies and cover-ups."

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
