Other Theories Of What Crashed At Roswell - CoverUps.com
In addition to the two primary theories/stories of the Roswell crash (alien flying saucer; weather balloon), some other theories have been put forth over the years, including:
2. From November 1944, through April 1945, the Japanese launched more than nine thousand crude, gas-filled balloons, each carrying fifty to seventy-five pounds of incendiary or high-explosive bombs. As many as a thousand of them may have ridden the prevailing winds all they way to North America. One of these may have crashed at Roswell.
While some of these balloons actually did make it to America, starting several fires and killing six Americans, it is unlikely that a balloon from Japan stayed aloft for two years before crashing in Roswell, 1947, since the last Japanese balloon launch was in 1945.
3. There is always the possibility that what crashed on the Foster ranch and even at the plains of San Agustin, was connected to the test flight of a secret American airplane or missile. At any one time, various secret vehicles are being tested in the wide open spaces of the West where the chances of their being seen accidentally are at a minimum. This was true in 1947 and it is certainly true today.
4. Some people believe that what crashed at Roswell was a secret Soviet weapon. This was probably a reasonable theory in 1947, when the U.S. government was concerned that the Soviets might have leaped far ahead of America using captured Nazi German technology and scientists. Today, however, based on our thorough knowledge of early Soviet jet airplanes and rockets, this theory doesn't seem to hold water.
