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:

1. What was found may have been a captured, German-built V-2 unguided ballistic missile known to have been test-fired from the White Sands proving ground, less than a hundred miles southwest of Corona, New Mexico. This might account for the finding of unfamiliar parts. As for the bodies that were found some distance from the debris field, some proponents of the rocket explanation suggest they were nothing more exotic than monkeys that had been lofted into near-space as part of a biological test program that would eventually lead to manned space flight.

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.
