Roswell: UFO Crash Site

Roswell: UFO Crash Site - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

In 1947, a farmer came across some weird looking pieces of metal in a field. The military closed the area off. First they said it was a crashed UFO but later said it was a weather balloon.

The year was 1947. It was the first week of July and W.W. "Mac" Brazel, a rancher in New Mexico, rode out on his horse with his neighbor's sons to check on the sheep after a violent thunderstorm. Along the way, Mac noticed some unusual pieces that looked like chunks of metal scattered over a large area. When he went for a closer look he saw a shallow trench, several hundred feet long.

Mac was puzzled and curious about the strange debris and dragged a large piece to a shed. He took some of it to show his neighbors. They told him he might be holding part of a wrecked UFO or a government project. They encouraged him to contact the local authorities. Not long after, Mac headed into the town of Roswell and reported what he had come across to the sheriff. This sheriff passed along the info to Intelligence Officer, Major Jesse Marcel.

When the military arrived at the scene they closed the site off while the wreckage was cleared. On July 8th that same year, a press release said that a flying saucer had crashed. The next day a second press release went out with a different story. They claimed to be mistaken about the flying saucer - it was actually a weather balloon.

The entire event was forgotten until 1970 when Jesse Marcel made the announcement that the military had lied. The crashed object was not a weather balloon but was, in fact, a UFO and alien bodies had been recovered. Everyone involved had been threatened into silence. This story has been told over and over again. Some people believe it was a crashed UFO and there really were aliens. Official documents were eventually released along with a film which apparently shows the military dissection of two alien corpses in '47.

The film has changed millions of people into believers, however, there are still a large number of people who think it's just a hoax. If it is a hoax, it's one of the most effective ones ever. If it's actually real, then the Roswell crash is one of the most important scientific discoveries ever. Whatever the case may be, the crash at Roswell is an interesting topic to read about.

1 I saw an alien before, so I believe.

1 Well, I saw a real alien on a plane. How? Because we're ALL aliens! We're aliens to other extra terrestrials, right? And they're alien to us! We've all seen aliens!

@rainbowpoptart Well, I'd have to disagree with you there my friend. Naturally the audience that buys Barbie dolls are young girls. At a young age and with multimedia today girls are highly influenced by what they see on the TV, Magazine, and you guessed it their toys. Seeing is believing and with the unreachable beauty standards you see in magazines, it's kinda hard for girls to not want to pursue to be skinner and the likes. But anyway, your right with the Barbie being independent woman that don't need a man. But I think this new line is showing that all types of girls can be independent. This new line is expanding its skin colors, giving different hip sizes and different heights and different types of hair styles. It's no longer the blond haired and blue eyed type of deal. I think this is representing that there are many different kinds of people and different kinds of shape a sizes. With the television showing perfect fictional girl characters, or models on magazines, and other places, I think that it's good that they're showing different body types.

@urifour11  I don't disagree with that. Well, not entirely. I disagree with your Barbie comments. Pink is Barbie's everything, and making something not pink for the female Barbie dolls would be a bit.. not Barbie.  I don't like their changing of the body shapes all too much. Barbie is supposed to be an exceptionally good-looking woman who shows girls that they don't need a man to be happy with their lives (though some people may think otherwise because of Ken's existence) and that they can do literally whatever they want to. It sounds really harsh, but I think it's the individual's fault for thinking they need to look a certain way to be accepted.  Although I strongly disagree with the newer dolls, I do completely respect why they're doing it. I'm sure they're working on the Lego sets. They already have dolls, so Legos should be here any day now, haha. And @Pink_Cool_Girl I want to look into the computer thing you were talking about to continue that discussion, but I'm super busy right now (I'm multi-tasking like crazy ugh). It'll have to wait until tomorrow. :P
