“Project Serpo: The Real ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind'”
““I really found my faith when I learned that the government was opposed to the film. If NASA took the time to write me a twenty-page letter, then I knew there must be something happening.” – Steven Spielberg”
“Now, in what could be an unprecedented break with government secrecy policy, a few former military insiders have come forward to say that the exchange was indeed real, and actually took place almost exactly as depicted in the movie. ”
“Under the auspices of a Defense Intelligence Agency program referred to as Operation Crystal Knight, or what is now being called “Project Serpo,” it has been claimed that twelve astronauts left the earth in July of 1965, and were taken to the planet Serpo in the constellation Zeta Reticuli aboard an alien spaceship, as part of an exchange program.”
“The tale told by Anonymous is indeed amazing. If it is true, then, at a minimum, the entire history of the government pretense of ignorance about UFOs and extraterrestrials is completely blown away. Not surprisingly, it all begins with Roswell.
Anonymous says that the Roswell crash did occur, but that it involved two alien craft. The first was found relatively intact, embedded into a hillside southwest of Corona, New Mexico on July 5, 1947 by a university archaeology team.
This site is about 75 miles northwest of Roswell, and is famously referred to as the “Roswell crash” because all the remnants of the crash were brought to the Roswell Army Air Force base, where the military took control of the information.
The second crash site wasn’t discovered until August, 1949. Another downed craft, it is said, was found almost completely intact at a remote place outside of Datil, New Mexico by two ranchers.
Evidently, the two spacecraft had collided somewhere near the Brazel ranch, thus accounting for the debris field, but the second craft, before hitting the ground itself, had limped on to the vicinity of Datil, about 80 miles west of Corona. Four dead aliens, the account goes on, were found at the Corona site, and six at the Datil site.
However, one alien survived the Corona crash and was found hiding behind a rock. He was taken to Los Alamos, and became known as EBE #1 (Extraterrestrial Biological Entity #1).
Although he “spoke” in tonal variations, just as in Close Encounters, the scientists at Los Alamos found a way to communicate with him, and he informed them that he was from a planet in the constellation Zeta Reticuli, about 40 light years from earth. The constellation was also referenced in the famous 1966 UFO abduction account of Betty and Barney Hill.
EBE #1 also provided researchers with a complete explanation of all the devices found in the crashed spacecraft, one of which was a piece of equipment for communicating with his home planet that survived the impact.
However, the Los Alamos scientists could not get it to work until they discovered how to hook it up to the energy source on the crashed Corona disc. That was in the early summer of 1952. However EBE#1 died later that summer after sending six unanswered messages to his planet.
After the death of EBE#1, says Anonymous, the Los Alamos scientists figured out how to use the device correctly to communicate with the extraterrestrial race they had now named the “Ebens,” and they received the first reply around December, 1952. Eventually, they were able to converse in rough English.
Over the next nine years, the communications wrinkles were slowly ironed out, mostly by trial and error. Finally, in 1962, it was arranged that the Ebens would send another mission to earth in April of 1964, and that we would meet the craft at Holloman Air Force Base near Alamogordo, New Mexico.
By this time President Kennedy was in office. Then, according to Anonymous, “Several months into the planning process, President Kennedy decided to approve a plan to exchange a special military team. The USAF was tasked as the lead agency.
The USAF officials picked special civilian scientists to assist in planning and crew selection.” It was arranged that we would send twelve astronauts to Serpo, and they would leave one Eben here in the custody of the U.S. government.
As might be imagined, the selection and training of the twelve astronaut-ambassadors was an extraordinary undertaking. After months of discussion it was ultimately decided that they be career military, single with no children and preferably orphans themselves, and with multiple special skills.
Originally, about 56,000 files were screened of which 158 were picked by the selection committee. The final twelve, ten men and two women, plus four alternates, were chosen based on complex psychological, medical and other tests.
All the team members were “sheep-dipped,” i.e., all identification records were purged, including social security, IRS, medical, military et al, and they were all listed as “missing” and discharged, so that no connection with their former identities remained. ”
“The commander says they viewed “Strange looking bodies. Not human bodies, at least not all of them” from other planets being grown and maintained in tubs.
The Eben doctor tried to explain the science behind their work, but the earthlings didn’t comprehend because they didn’t really understand DNA bio-technology in 1965. The team commander concluded that it was all evil stuff. He says, “I saw the dark side of this civilization.”
The population of Serpo is about 650,000. Anonymous says that the Eben civilization is about 10,000 years old originating on another planet which they were forced to leave 5,000 years ago due to volcanic destruction. The Ebens fought a devastating interplanetary war about 3,000 years ago, and wiped out their enemies using particle beam weapons. The war lasted about 100 years
The Ebens have a “Council of Governors,” which is in complete control of the population, with membership for life. The astronauts observed no crime, but there is an army, which also acts as a police force. But no guns or weapons of any type were seen by the team. There is one large community, which is the center of the civilization.
All the industry is concentrated there. The Ebens do not use any type of currency—they are all issued whatever they need from central distribution centers. All adult Ebens do some type of work.
So they lost track of earth time and ended up staying thirteen years instead of ten. It was determined by earth scientists that Kepler’s Law of planetary motion did not apply to Serpo. Carl Sagan was consulted on this, and wrote about 60 pages of opinion on the subject, but ultimately had to acknowledge that earthly laws of physics do not necessarily apply out of this solar system.
The eight astronauts returned in 1978, and were debriefed for a solid year by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, which resulted in a 3,000-page book. Anonymous claims to have a copy of this book. They were then released into civilian life.
The last survivor of this brave and historic band of pioneers passed away in 2002. They had all absorbed large doses of radiation while on Serpo, and it is believed that this shortened their lives.”
“The bulk of the information about this program is said to have been dribbled out to the world via 21 e-mails from an individual referred to only as “Anonymous” to a closed circle of high-level UFO insiders beginning on November 2, 2005.
Anonymous says that he was formerly a senior officer of the Defense Intelligence Agency, and is now the official spokesman for a group of six DIA personnel, three retired and three still currently employed there. It was decided by the group, and agreed to by Anonymous, that a web site should be created to publish all the e-mails on the Internet.
One of the researchers in the group, Bill Ryan from England, volunteered for the job, and so began www.serpo.org, what has now developed into the official source for all Serpo-related information, including updates from Ryan, a link to a public forum, and supporting e-mails from other insiders who had knowledge of the Serpo project.”
For the UFO community at least, the site has become something of a sensation. For what it’s worth this is the story offered on the site.”
