Pentagon UFO Director Says Alien Spacecraft Can Warp Space-Time
One of the hallmarks of a UFO is uncanny aerodynamics—the ability to hover, accelerate to high speeds, suddenly stop, and pull off aerial acrobatics that would snap the wings off a fighter jet. All of these traits were supposedly demonstrated in an encounter between Navy pilots and a UFO spotted off the San Diego coast, in a 2004 event dubbed the "Nimitz Incident."
According to pilot David Fravor, who witnessed the event firsthand, he and his fellow pilots were informed during a training exercise that an "anomalous aerial vehicle" had been spotted nearby. Upon tracking down its location, Fravor said he saw something that looked like a 40-foot white Tic-Tac, which initially hovered over the ocean, then began mirroring his squad's movements, then suddenly took off "[f]aster than I'd ever seen anything in my life."
Here's a video of the encounter, provided by the To the Stars Academy (which, admittedly, has fallen victim to hoaxes around this incident before):
The question of how these supposed alien crafts pull off these aerial stunts has been unanswered for years, but Luis Elizondo, the former director of the Pentagon program to identify and investigate UFOs (the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program), claims he has figured it out.
According to Elizondo:
"For the first time, we have a compelling picture that what we are seeing is explained in our current understanding of physics, advanced physics, and quantum mechanics. We do believe all these observables we've been seeing, sudden and extreme acceleration, hypersonic velocities, low observability, trans medium travel, and last but not least, positive lift, anti-gravity-is really the manifestation of a single technology."
And what is this single, miraculous technology?
"We believe it has to do with a high amount of energy and the ability to warp space-time, not by a lot, but by a little," Elizondo says.
The claim is backed up by Dr. Hal Puthoff, a physicist at Bigelow Aerospace.
It would be interesting to see an independent scientist come out with this kind of claim, but it's important to know that the owner of Bigelow Aerospace, Robert Bigelow, was one of two major players behind the creation of Elizondo's AATIP in the first place. Bigelow is also a major UFO buff, has gone on 60 Minutes to talk about his theories regarding aliens.
Either way, the claim that hyper-advanced alien visitors from an unknown civilization are using hypothetical space-time-warping engines to pull off aerial acrobatics seems like an outlier for the most likely explanation for the Nimitz Incident, and Elizondo's claim that all of it fits within our current understanding of physics and "quantum mechanics" sounds dubious at best.
