A
1992 QBI
The first component of the Kuiper Belt ever observed. It´s possible that its red surface is rich of organics. A theory says that it´s placed there to function as a base for the Reptoids and the Greys armies, just waiting there for the right time to attack the earth.

Abducted
A human or an animal that´s been captured by an alien.

Abductions
The abductees have in allmost every case been studied by the aliens. They performed surgical operations, collected sperm, ova samples and tissues of all kinds. And in some cases an implant could be found.

Adamski, George
Adamski was born in Poland on 17th April 1891. His parents emigrated to the United States in 1893. Adamski claims that he´ve met humans from mars, venus and saturn. The ones living on Venus ´was called Venusians according to him. He has also been taken to the cities on the dark side of the moon and abroad spaceships. He claims that he has been told that all of our planets are inhabited. After his meetings in 1953 he started spreading the word of the Cosmic Philosophy which he had learn from the Venusians. He took several photos of theese so called UFOs and aliens. But most of them has been proven hoaxes. In 1954 a man called Thomas Eickhoff tried to bring him to the Tederal Court to with help from two scientists that had witnessed one of his space travells. But the court ruled that the subject of UFOs was considered Maximum Security by the CIA.

AFOSI

Allan Hills 84001
The oldest martian metorite to date. It was found in Antarctica were it crashed down for about 3,9-4,1 billion years. Earlier this year astronomers from Manchester University and scientists from the American Museum of Natural History released the news about the meteorite and that they had found organic materials in it. All theories about life on the red planet now seemed to be true, though it wasn´t little green men the proof of life in universe was confirmed. This discovery has given birth to new theories about life on earth developed from a martian meteorite. The age of the meteorite matches the time when scientists have estimated the life begun on earth, for about 3,5-4,1 billion years ago.

ALF
Alien Life Forms.

Alien Bases
There are four alien bases in the United States. One in Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada. In 1972 there were six bases and they all was on indian reservations.

Anderson, Gerald
In the year 1990 Gerald Andersson step out in the light revealing a story about a crashed saucer at the Plains of San Augustin, New Mexico. This event should have taken place in July 5, 1947. In the beginning his story seemed to be highly detailed and contained a lot of information about dates, times, locations and names. And the investigators soon took their sides in the debate. The belivers were represented by Stanton T. Friedman and the non-belivers by Kevin Randles. Under a long time the two sides exchange their oppinions with an almost hostile tone. Randle took deep investigations in the testimony and proved many of the statements made by Gerald Andersson to be hoaxes. The things that didn´t fit in Geralds story was incorrect namnes, mixed up times and he changed his idea of were the crash site was located. Friedman answered Randles evidence with many explanations. Most of them almost more unbelivable then the crash itself. When the story almost had been forgotten Gerald recieved a diary at his fathers funeral wich he claimed as the family diary. But again the dates, times, names and place sdidn´t match with the truth. But the most important thing is that the paper was avaible in 1947 but the ink wasn´t avaiable until the mid 70s. The belivers had to give up their hope of a crashed saucer. Stanton T. Friedman even added a preface in his book "UFO Crash at Corona" were he says that the testimony of Gerald Andersson isn´t reliable e Friedman camp conceded and his is book Crash at Corona, Friedman added a small preface informing the reader that the testimony of Gerald Anderson was no longer reliable.

Andreasson, Betty
Betty Andreasson Luca was born on January 7th, 1937 and married to her second husband Bob Luca. She´s a well known UFO abductee victim and has written several books and held lectures about her own experiences. She claimed that she´d been abduvted several times by the Greys and here opinion about was that they´r a sort of biological robots in control by higher humanoid entities. Books: The Andreasson Affair (1979), The Watchers, The Watchers II (1995). Under the abductions they took skin samples that she clamied that they used for the study of melanin producions.

Groom Lake Dry area of the Nellis Air Force Range and Nuclear Test Site in the Nevada desert, about 80 miles NNW of Las Vegas. Here the US government is test flying their secret Black Projects wich involves military aircrafts and UFOs.

Arnold, Kenneth
On the 24th June 1947, pilot Kenneth Arnold observed nine strange objects flying in formations over Mount Rainier, Cascade Mountains, Washington. He had a second sighting five days later when he saw 20-25 brass-coloured objects within 400 yards when he flew over the La Grande valley. This started the UFO hysteria that´s been ongoing ever since. The term "Flying Saucer" was used by Kenneth Arnold to describe how the UFOs moved in the air. A misunderstanding that it was the shape of the UFOs he described gave birth to the now classical description "Flying Saucer".

Arcturus

Barnett, Grady L.
Grady (aka Barney) Barnett workeda as a soil conservation engineer based in Socorro, New Mexico. Barnett was the one that first made the connection between the Roswell Crash and the by Gerald Andersson claimed crash on the Plains of San Agustin. But his story isn´t a firsthand testimony. He died before he even got to came forward with it. So everything we know about the Barney Barnett story is just a recreation made by his best friend Vern Maltais. This story was supprorted by Gerald Anderssons story. But as the Geralds story there are many things that doesn´t make sence like times, dates, places and names. Soon both this story and the Gerald Andersson story was dismissed as hoaxes.

Bennewitz, Paul
An Alberquerque businessman who started to investihate and monitor strange electromagnetic pulses. He thought it was signals from UFOs flying nearby the Manzano Nuclear Weapons Storage Facility near Kirtland Air Force Base. He came to the conclusion that this must be the signals used to controll abductees with. He started to monitor the signals and trying to decode them. When he thought he was on the right way he contacted the APRO but they didn´t belive his theory. So instead he contacted the AFOSI. This was in September 1980. There he met Richard Doty. Bennewitz filled in some forms sent a few of his tapes with the UFOs flying over the Nuclear Storage taped on. After this Richard Doty started to fill Paul Bennewitz with disinformation. Stories about a US Gov/Alien alliance, alien bases around the world and on the moon and about the horrible experiments the aliens performed on humans to create hybrids. Bennewitz swallowed the bait and belived in all of the stories Doty told him. Then Doty convinced William Moore to pass on more disinformation to Bennewitz and he was going into a paranoid state of mind. Later on Paul Bennewitz told John Lear about all this and he used this information in his book, Dark Side Hypothesis. Paul Bennewitz ended up insane.

A project held by the US Air Force in the early 1970s to do research in antigravity.

Blue Book, Project
It all started in March 1952 as a follow up to the Sign and Grudge Projects, to find explanations to all the UFO sightings. If there was any reason fear them as a threat to the national security. And if the UFOs used any kind of advance technology that could be usefull to the US. Thousands of reports were collected, analyzed and filed according to their results and there seemed to be no problem until one of the persons who worked in the investigation team sent in his own sighting. It was filed but later when he wanted to go back and refer to it the report couldn´t be found. It had dissapeared. He understood that reports that was unexplained and could cause fear in the public were sorted out of the files of Blue Book and passed on to a higher authority. As the result of the Condon Report the Project Blue Book was shut down in 1969. This project was the last publicly known UFO research project lead by the USAF. One of the investigators at Blue Book, Dr J. Allen Hynek, went on to start the first scientific based UFO group, the Center for UFO Studies, in 1973.

Campbell, Glenn
Glenn Campbell, age 36, used to work as a computer programmer around Boston but moved to the desert town of Rachel, Nevada, in January 1993 but now he lives in an apartment in Las Vegas, 90 miles south of the secret military bas Area-51. Campbell moved from Boston only to investigate the rumours and stories about the so called Area-51 at Groom Lake. His investigations ended up in his book, The Area 51 Viewer's Guide. Glenn Campbell has always kept to the facts and not involved any emotional feelings in the subject. And that has given him respect and credibility. The information he collects through his investigation he publishes on his web site called the Area-51 Research Center. Through his devotion to the Area-51 and surrounding tales made the secret military base known to the public. Appearences in media by Glenn Campbell: ABC World, News Tonight and Larry King Live and several articles about him in magazines like Popular Science and The New York Times Magazine.

Carlotto, Dr Mark
During the mid 1980´s, TASC's Dr. Mark Carlotto developed an algorithm that enables one to extract approximate elevation relief from imagery. It´s a "shape from shading" algorithm. The Martian imagery provided an excellent dataset for prototyping this algorithm as with no atmosphere and well understood reflectivity, the surface provides near perfect Lambertian reflection - and hence a means of determining relative surface normals. He developed this algorithm under the same period as some scientists were reviewing remotly sensed imagery of the Martian surface. They discovered the so called "Face on Mars", a geological feature on the surface wich looks as a humanface. This discovery fed the old stories about asumed life on Mars. Stories that, by the way, seems to be true if you belive the scientist who found some kind of small single cell creatures on a 4 billion year old metheorite crashed on earth.

Carpenter, John
Carpenter is a ufologist who specialises in Abductees and their reports.

Cash/Landrum Case
Betty Cash (Vickie's Boss and restaurant owner), Vickie Landrum and her grandson Colby Landrum were driving along a road in Huffman in December 1980 when they saw a diamond shaped UFO hovering over the road. They had to stop because of the fire that belched out from beneeth it. At the same time they saw around 25 unmarked black helicopters wich followed it when it took of. After the encounter they all sufferd from vomiting, sunburn and diarrhoea. A theory that has been discussed it was the US government trying to fly a manmade Saucer.

Cattle Mutilations
Started sometime before the 1970´s. Cattle are killed and found mutilated on the farm. Some are found completely drained of blood and some with vital organs removed, often the sexual organs. The surgic operations are so advanced to perform that the technics were´nt invented on earth at the time the mutilations started to appear. The connection between the mutilations and UFOs seems to be that discoveries of mutilated cattle and UFO sightings often go hand in hand.

Condon, Edward
The man who lead the UFO Project at the Colorado University. In 1969 they published "Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects", aka "CONDON Report". It was talking against the reality of UFOs and gave the USAF a chance to close the Project Blue Book without publish any public investigations of UFOs.

Condon Report, The
The US Air Force commissioned the University of Colorado in 1966 to make a scientific study of UFOs. The project was headed by Dr Edward Condon. In 1969 they published 'Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects' wich debunked the whole UFO phenomena. Later FOIA released documents have shown that CIA had involvement in the report and was responsoble for the debunking reports. The Condon Report was just use as an official excuse to shut down the Project Blue Book in 1969.

Condor
See Robert Collins.

Cooper, Gordon
NASA astronaut who has, like many other astronauts, witnessed UFOs in space. Gordon Cooper also claims that NASA has taken pictures of them.

Cooper, Milton William
Used to work forr the USAF but claims that he then moved to the Naval Intelligence. He made his first public apperance on Paranet with a report on a UFO sighting that he had whilst on the USS Tiru, a US submarine. He then started to send details of secret projects the US government dealed with at the time he worked for the intelligence. But when he was aked about some kind of evidence that what he claimed was true he didn´t give any. Instead he kept sending information about diffrent secret projects involving the US Gov and aliens. He was banned from Paranet but still kept on sending in reports, anonymously, to diffrent BBS´s and caliming that the researchers questioning his authenticity worked for the government to spread disinformation to the public. Although his reputation isn´t the best he´s a well paid lecturer who talks about his experiences. Some of his claimed US government projects are secret military bases on the Moon and Mars. He says that theese bases were built in the 1950s. Another of his strange theories are the assassination of JFK. According to Cooper he was assassinated by the cars driver. The reason that he was terminated was that he was going to tell the truth about UFOs to the public. None of this can be strengthen by any kind of evidence, except a seventh copy of the film shoving the assassination of JFK, in very poor condition. Perhaps his most bizarre story is that the aliens in US TV-series "Alien Nation" are real aliens who were employed as part of an indoctrination program so that the public will accept the reality of aliens more easily. He´s known for changing his mind very quick like when he first claimed that he´d met Bob Lazar and knew that everything was true of wich he spoke but then a couple of months later he changed his mind and said that he´d always known that Lazar was a Fraud. Most ufologists belives that he´s loosing his mind.

Dark Side Hypothesis
Written by John Lears and in it he claims that the US government has recovered all of the crashed space ships. And therefor they launched the Project Redlight in 1962 wich purpose was to recover and test fly the space ships in S-4 at Area-51. He also claims that the US government has made a deal with the aliens to abduct abduct as many people as they wan´t in exchange for their technology. They also demanded a list of all the humans they intended to abduct. But the government found out that they didn´t kept their part in the deal and it ended up in a confrontation 1978-79. Many of the top US scientist were killed by the aliens and the deal was broken. But the abductions and experiments on humans continued in secret. In the 1980s the US government and the aliens made a new deal and are once again working together.

Element 115
A substance that yet has to be created on earth. But if it would excist it should be read as the 115 in the periodic table. According to Robert Lazar thats the substance he came in contact with when he was working at the Area-51. It´s used in some way with the propulsion engine in the crafts to create anti-gravity. When Element 115 is modified, claims Lazar, in a certain combination of protons, neutrons, and electrons, it will produce a stable form of itself. This new stable combination releases a larger, more powerful gravitational field than other elements. This force that is produced from the Element 115 is not like that which holds us to the earthand the planets in orbit. The Element produces a field of the same kind that holds atoms together. This gravitational field, you can say, bends the space-time continuum and travels in a non-linear direction. It´s like that the craft is standing still and space moves against.

ET
Extra-terrestrial. Same as ufonauts or alien abductors.

Extra-terrestrial Exposure Law
In title 14, section 1211 of the Code of Federal Regulations there is a law wich was added without public debate. It´s a law that makes anyone who comes in contact with a UFO or an alien can be fined up to $5000 and be jailed for up to a tear.

Fort, Charles
Charles Fort was born in Albany, New York, in 1874. He became a writer and reporter and that was the beginning for Charles Fort´s interest in the UFO phenomena. Fort is probably the first known Ufologists in the world. Charles Fort started to study old news reports and did that for many years. What Fort found out was that there was a pattern of strange aerial phenomena that had been reported throughout the years. The information Fort collected under his investigations can be found in his books The book of the Damned (1919), New Lands (1923), Lo! (1931) and Wild Talents (1932). "Science is established preposterousness, Science of today - superstition of tommorrow. Science of tomorrow - superstition of today". This Charles Fort said and it represents what he stood up for. What worried Charles Fort most was that the subject of UFO phenomenas wasn´t taken seriously by science. Charles Fort died in 1932. In 1973 the monthly magazine Fortean Times was founded to continue the work of Charles Fort.

Goldwater, Senator Barry
Senator Barry Goldwater, former Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Barry Goldwater has made several attempts to investigate the rumours about Wright-Patterson Air Base holding UFO evidence. But all of them has failed. This is what he said in a letter, 28th March 1975, to all Ufologists: "The subject of UFOs is one that has interested me for some long time. About ten to twelve years ago I made an effort to find out what was in the building at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base where the information is stored that has been collected by the Air Force, and I was understandably denied the request. It is still classified above Top Secret. I have, however, heard that there is a plan underway to release some, if not all, of this material in the near future. I'm just as anxious to see this material as you are, and I hope we will not have to wait much longer."

This case is based on information gained through hypnotic regression. In September 1961, Betty and Barney Hill returned from their holiday when they saw a bright light moving rapidly in the sky. Barney wen´t out of the car to get a better look of the UFO. It was shaped like a coin with two wings. In the windows they could see figures running around. He ran back to the car and continued their trip home. They noticed that they had lost two hours without knowing why. They told the same story in separate rooms under hypnotic sleep. The car was stopped by the UFO and they were taken aboard the UFO and there they were separated. The aliens examined them and took samples of tissues from their bodies. Onboard the space ship Betty was showned a 3-D holographic star map. She could make a drawing out of it under hypnosis and an amateur astronomer searched for a constellation wich match the drawing.

The source of my information is a British official of Cabinet rank who prefers to remain unidentified. 'We believe, on the basis of our inquiry thus far, that the saucers were staffed by small men - probably under four feet tall. It's frightening, but there is no denying the flying saucers come from another planet.' The official quoted scientists as saying a flying ship of this type could not possibly have been constructed on earth. The British Government, I learned, is withholding an official report on the 'flying saucer' examination at this time, possibly because it does not wish to frighten the public."

Lazar, Robert
Robert lazar is a scientist with master degrees in physics and electronics and wrote his thesis on MHD (magnetohydrodynamics). Lazar worked in Los Alamos as a technician and later as a physicist in the Polarised Proton Section dealing with particle accelerators. As a side project on his free time he has built a jet powered motorbike and a jet powered car and can raise a speed limit as high as 350mph. Lazar ha also designed and buildt a car that uses hydrogen as fuel. Robert Lazar claims to have worked at the above top secret area S-4, located ten miles south of AREA 51 in the Nevada desert. Lazar says he was employed as a scientist to examine a captured alien craft and try to reverse engineer the crafts propulsion mechanism. This was between December 1988 and April 1989. According to Lazars claims there were nine diffrent crafts at S-4 but he only worked on one of them. Lazar learned that the crafts used a sort of propulsion system that uses gravity waves. To gain the energy needed to run the system they neededElement 115, an element not found on earth. The element can not be syntetisised and just one kilogram of the element releases the same amount of energy as 47 10-megaton hydrogen bombs. Lazar claims that he had 500 pounds (227.27kg) of Element 115 to work with and that one craft only needed 223 grams of the element. Lazar says that he was allowed to go inside the craft and he also witnessed a test flight with the craft. The reason that Lazar left the work at S-4 was that he took three of his friends, one of them John Lear, to the edge of S-4 to observe the test flights at the border to S-4 through a telescope. This was on March 29th, 1989. They did see and also filmed a bright light rise in a step manoeuvre and hover in the air. It briefly disappeared and reappeared a few feet higher, and then the light went down the same way. The following week on April 6th 1989 they went back but this time they were caught by a security guard. Their IDs were filed in a computer at the Area-51 and they were ordered to leave the area. The following day Lazar was ordered for a meetin at the Area-51 with an FBI agent and some security guards and he was resigned. The first time the Lazar story was revealed in public was in March 1989. Under the pseudonym Dennis and in shadow with altered voice Lazar told his story on KLAS-TV. The name Dennis Lazar picked of the reason that his boss at S-4 was named Dennis Mariani. Robert Lazar finally decided to go completley public after he was fired at whilst travelling on an Interstate highway. This happened after Lazar got caught outside the Area S-4. The reason Lazar went public was to protect himself. If anyone would kill him after the story and his identity was publicly known that would prove that he was telling the truth. So in November 1989 Robert Lazar went on TV to tell the full story. Lear John

In the report he said: "Curiously, I have said this both in NASA and fairly widely reported public discussion before scientific colleagues, yet the response from NASA has been nil...Even attempting to get a small group within NASA to undertake a study group approach to the available published effort seems to have generated no response. I realise, of course, that there may be semi-political considerations that make it awkward for NASA to fish in these waters at present, but if this is what is holding up serious scientific attention to the UFO problem at NASA this is all the more reason Congress had better take a good hard look at the problem and reshuffle the deck....I have learned from a number of unquable sources that the Air Force has long wished to get rid of the burden of the troublesome UFO problem and has twice tried to 'peddle' it to NASA - without success".
