Ufologists Ryan Wood, Robert Wood and Stanton Friedman spent many years studying photocopies of secret documents of the Majestic-12 group that fell into their hands.
Based on a lot of circumstantial evidence and analysis of the activities of this group of officials, they came to the unequivocal conclusion that the existence and activities of this organization were aimed at secretly studying and hiding the UFO phenomenon from the public and discrediting it in the official media in order to divert the attention of ordinary people from it, creating a false pseudo-skeptical attitude to any of its manifestations.
This organization consisted of 12 people, among whom were five of the leading American scientists of the time, as well as high-ranking officials from the Department of Defense and the CIA.
With this 1947 letter, US President Truman purportedly authorised “Operation Majestic Twelve.” The existence of MJ-12 has been denied by the United States government, which insists that documents suggesting its existence are hoaxed.
One of these scientists was the American astrophysicist and astronomer Donald Howard Menzel, the author of three books refuting the existence of UFOs. In one of his official speeches, he literally stated the following:
“Firstly, these objects should not be called unidentified, we know what we are dealing with. Secondly, they usually do not fly. Thirdly, for the most part they are not even material.”
And it is no coincidence that Menzel was known as a “staunch opponent” of the theory of the existence of UFOs, because this was precisely the activity of members of the secret organization Majestic-12, who, in order to achieve their goals, fooled US citizens for many years, resorting to outright lies and forgeries.
For this purpose, various kinds of fables were even specially distributed, which were then successfully “exposed”, discrediting the phenomenon and UFOs and diverting attention from genuine UFO phenomena.
A study of the Harvard archives (namely, where Menzel taught in those years) led to an interesting find.
People who worked on the Majestic-12 project
It was established that Menzel was engaged not only in scientific activities, but also advised the National Security Agency, the most powerful intelligence organization in the United States.
In particular, this is proved by a letter from Menzel himself, written by him in 1960 to Senator John F. Kennedy. At the same time, the US government and intelligence agencies had evidence of the existence of UFOs.
All this reveals to us the true essence of the statements of many scientific “authorities” aimed at discrediting the UFO phenomenon. And it is not at all accidental that the activities of pseudoscientific commissions in all countries are funded from the same source, the owners of which clearly do not want people to know the truth about the UFO phenomenon and secret contacts of governments with representatives of other civilizations.
Another famous American astrophysicist, Joseph Allen Hynek, who was attracted by the US government to the Blue Book UFO study project precisely because of his skepticism about the UFO phenomenon, quickly became convinced that the main task of this project was not to study, but to discredit the UFO phenomenon based on searching for explanations of UFO sightings within the framework of versions convenient for the government.
But this American scientist turned out to be honest and did not participate in fooling his own people, and therefore published his dissenting opinion, which differs from the official conclusion of the members of this commission.
Moreover, after several decades of careful study of the phenomenon, he reversed his opinion about it, recognizing that the phenomenon itself undoubtedly exists and is not “mass hallucinations” or “fictions of mentally ill people.”
Government scientist J. Allen Hynek was hired to investigate/debunk UFO sightings but ended up becoming a believer. The UFO debunker Philip Klass was tasked with discrediting Hynek.
Fortunately, A. Hynek is far from the only scientist who did not slip into outright lies, but put the truth above the interests of the forces that control modern science.
Not so long ago, the Department of Defense has created an office to track unidentified objects in space and air, under water, or even those that appear to travel between these domains.
UFOs, or as they are now known, unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) have been receiving newfound levels of government scrutiny not seen in decades.
Multiple hearings and classified briefings have taken place in the halls of the U.S. Congress in recent months, and many lawmakers have expressed concern that America’s airspace may not be as safe as we think due to the many sightings of unidentified objects military aviators and other armed forces personnel have reported.
With that in mind, the Department of Defense (DOD) announced the creation of this new office in a statement(opens in new tab) published Wednesday (July 20). The office is known as the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, or AARO, and was established within the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security.
The new office will be led by Sean Kirkpatrick(opens in new tab), who previously served as the chief scientist at the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Missile and Space Intelligence Center.
The creation of this new organization is only the latest policy the U.S. government has made in recent months aimed at gaining a better understanding of UFOs. In June, NASA commissioned a panel designed to investigate UAP, with the secondary objective of removing some of the stigma or taboo associated with the topic.
“One of the things that we tangentially hope to be part of this study, simply by talking about it in the open, is to help to remove some of the stigma associated with it,” Daniel Evans, assistant deputy associate administrator for research at NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, said during a news conference held at the time.
“That will yield, obviously, increased access to data, more reports, more sightings, et cetera. So that’s another thing that we’re trying to accomplish with it.”
Now, 60 years after Majestic 12, scientists and governments are committed to doing the same thing they did then: to study the UFO phenomenon. But the question for people remains the same: how much can they be trusted?
There’s one last place Planet Nine could be hiding
A study recently submitted to The Astronomical Journal
continues to search for the elusive Planet Nine (also called Planet X),
which is a hypothetical planet that potentially orbits in the outer
reaches of the solar system and well beyond the orbit of the dwarf
The goal of this study, which is available on the pre-print server arXiv,
was to narrow down the possible locations of Planet Nine and holds the
potential to help researchers better understand the makeup of our solar
system, along with its formation and evolutionary processes. So, what
was the motivation behind this study regarding narrowing down the
location of a potential Planet 9?
Dr. Mike Brown, who is a Richard and Barbara Rosenberg Professor of
Astronomy at Caltech and lead author of the study, tells Universe Today,
“We are continuing to try to systematically cover all of the regions of
the sky where we predict Planet Nine to be. Using data from Pan-STARRS
allowed us to cover the largest region to date.”
Pan-STARRS, which stands for Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid
Response System, is a collaborative astronomical observation system
located at Haleakala Observatory and operated by the University of
Hawai’i Institute of Astronomy. For the study, the researchers used data
from Data Release 2 (DR2) with the goal of narrowing down the possible
location of Planet Nine based on findings from past studies.
In the end, the team narrowed down possible locations of Planet Nine
by eliminating approximately 78% of possible locations that were
calculated from previous studies. Additionally, the researchers also
provided new estimates for the approximate semimajor axis (measured in
astronomical units, AU) and Earth-mass size of Planet Nine at 500 and
6.6, respectively. So, what are the most significant results from this
study, and what follow-up studies are currently being conducted or
“While I would love to say that the most significant result
was finding Planet Nine, we didn’t,” Dr. Brown tells Universe Today. “So
instead, it means that we have significantly narrowed the search area.
We’ve now surveyed approximately 80% of the regions where we think
Planet Nine might be.”
In terms of follow-up studies, Dr.
Brown tells Universe Today, “I think that the LSST is the most likely
survey to find Planet Nine. When it comes online in a year or two it
will quickly cover much of the search space and, if Planet Nine is
there, find it.”
LSST stands for Legacy Survey of Space and Time, and is an
astronomical survey currently scheduled as a 10-year program to study
the southern sky and take place at the Vera C. Rubin Observatory in
Chile, which is presently under construction.
Objectives for LSST include studying identifying near-Earth asteroids
(NEAs) and small planetary bodies within our solar system, but also
include deep space studies, as well. These include investigating the
properties of dark matter and dark energy and the evolution of the Milky
Way galaxy. But what is the importance of finding Planet Nine?
Dr. Brown tells Universe Today, “This would be the 5th
largest planet of our solar system and the only one with a mass between
Earth and Uranus. Such planets are common around other stars, and we
would suddenly have a chance to study one in our own solar system.”
Scientists began hypothesizing the existence of Planet Nine shortly
after the discovery of Neptune in 1846, including an 1880 memoir
authored by D. Kirkwood and later a 1946 paper authored by American
astronomer, Clyde Tombaugh, who was responsible for discovering Pluto in
More recent studies include studies from 2016 and 2017 presenting
evidence for the existence of Planet Nine, the former of which was
co-authored by Dr. Brown.
This most recent study marks the
most complete investigation of narrowing down the location of Planet
Nine, which Dr. Brown has long-believed exists, telling Universe Today,
“There are too many separate signs that Planet Nine is there. The solar
system is very difficult to understand without Planet Nine.”
He continues by telling Universe Today that “…Planet Nine explains
many things about orbits of objects in the outer solar system that would
be otherwise unexplainable and would each need some sort of separate
“The cluster of the directions of the orbits is the best know, but
there is also the large perihelion distances of many objects, existence
of highly inclined and even retrograde objects, and the high abundance
of very eccentric orbits which cross inside the orbit of Neptune. None
of these should happen in the solar system, but all are easily
explainable as an effect of Planet Nine.”

‘October Surprise’: Russia To Launch Nukes in Space
The ‘national security threat’ announced on Wednesday is
about Russia planning to launch nuclear weapons in space, causing some
to speculate whether it’s really an election year ploy.
The panic began when House Intelligence Committee Chair Mike Turner
(R-Ohio) asked President Biden to declassify information about a
“serious national security threat”.
Modernity.news reports: The weapon would reportedly be designed to be used to take out satellites.
Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) responded by telling reporters he wanted “to assure the American people, there is no need for public alarm.”
The big, scary threat is serious business and involves a space-based nuke controlled by evil dictator Putin, but it’s also “not an immediate crisis,” according to what three members of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee have told Politico.
Okay, then. Just for election season, is it?
Zero Hedge reports: “So, the question is – was this:
a) a distraction from Biden’s broken brain, or
2) a last desperate attempt to get more funding for anything-but-the-US-border, or
iii) a path to pitching Putin as the uber-bad-guy again after his interview with Tucker Carlson.”
Just by coincidence, Mike Turner recently returned from Ukraine having lobbied for billions more in weapons and aid for Zelensky’s government.
Some questioned the timing, suggesting it might all be a deep state plot to keep American voters afraid when they hit the ballot box.
Speculation will now rage as to whether this is “the event,” real or imagined, that billionaires and elitists the world over have been building underground survival bunkers in preparation for.
