  • Reportedly, an alien was found
  • The price of celebrity
  • Roswell is now an event
  • And of course there are books "There are some books that everyone with an interest in UFOs should own. 'UFO Crash at Roswell' is one of them. The result is a mountain of proof which will delight the true believer, astound the open-minded, and hopefully give the debunkers a real run for their money.“ "The authors put forward a roster of eyewitness interviews and documents that may make the Roswell incident the strongest case of any for E.T. visitation." "For decades, elite scientists, from Enrico Fermi forward, have looked at the night skies, and at the conclusion of their scientific research, asked: Why aren't they here? From the information gathered so painstakingly by Randle and Schmitt in this book, perhaps the answer to that question is: They are." "Randle and Schmitt use scores of government documents and newspaper reports to show that the facts were hidden from the public for 40 years."

      • trying to recreate the scene, examining photos, finding additional witnesses, and similar common-sense probing.
