Nearly eighty years ago during World War 2 there was a American military project that was so top secret that even at the time of war the brass of the American military kept it secret from the president.
It was a time of technological explosion as the allies and axis of the war raced for military superiority. At this point of the war the possibility of an atomic bomb was something only of speculation and theory. But what really happened that gave the Americans and their allies such a leap forward in the race for nuclear weapons.
The answer to this question lies in the Nevada desert when the American military picked up radar signals that were suspicious. They immediately knew that it was not one of their planes. The order was out to meet object in the sky and guide it to a landing or shoot it down. The American pilots hopped into their planes to meet the object but the object proved to be elusive as it flew in a manner that defied the physics of any known plane. The Americans opened fire and shot down the object that crashed into the desert like a giant fireball. The troops on the ground raced to see what type of plane it was, thinking it was a cutting edge piece of Japanese technology. But it was something they had never seen before. It was a silvery disc that was wedged in the ground. The disc burned and the first troops that went to put out the flames dropped to their knees and vomited. Little did these men know that they had just been exposed to radiation poisoning. All four of them died that night.
The military quickly knew that the craft was nuclear powered and used their special radiation suits to protect themselves. They opened up the main door to the disc and found the unbelievable as four green men lay barely breathing. The military immediately took out the green men and provided them with medical attention. The disc was hauled back to a secret airplane hanger. The military officials then started to interrogate the little green men about where they were from. Surprisingly the green men spoke English. They were terrified and offered to show the Americans their atomic technology in exchange to let them go. The Americans agreed and called in their best scientists to talk with the green men. Within weeks the Americans started the process of enriching plutonium and uranium. A few weeks after that they had the equations and the process needed to build an Atomic bomb. Then in July of 1945 in a New Mexico desert the first atomic bomb in history was detonated.
The little green men after nearly five years of captivity were released. Where they went is unknown.
