If you think about it and actually travel in this part of the world if ever extra terrestrials were going to come and check us out it would be here and then that it would have been. It was around here that the first nuclear bomb was developed and tested. For years the first ever rockets were launched here, lots of exciting/scary stuff was going on that could have led you (or anyone "out there") to believe that man was getting ready to leave his planet
The other side is, the government, do you think it prudent to "concern" a war torn public with the fact that there may be bigger things to worry about? Worse than that, if the ET's were far more technically advanced than us and we had to defend ourselves against any invasion that would mean that maybe all the nations of the world might actually have to unite... gosh that would never do!
Maybe it wasn't ET after all, if it was some experimental craft being developed the government they wouldn't want you to know that either.
Who knows? - Someone must but 60 years on we still don't really know what happened. What it all means is that Roswell now has many little green aliens (mostly the inflatable kind), a UFO museum and research centre and many visitors from this world, including us!
The stories of the cover up are fascinating and thought provoking. A great number of people seemed to change their stories from one day to the next, some even changed their way of life along with fortune.
So - no snow, we came, we saw and we are still unsure... Maybe that's what "they" wanted all along
I mentioned that rocket experiments had been "going off" in these parts for a while, these were undertaken by a guy called Robert Hutchings Goddard, he developed the first liquid propelled rocket in 1925. We picked up an info' leaflet about him in the Roswell Museum and Art Center and I would just like to leave you with how he may be remembered:
Dreamer, Tinkerer and Pioneer - I like that.
Spookily - I couldn't zoom into Roswell close enough on the satellite map to identify our campsite so make do with the UFO museum location!
