Two members of To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science (TTSA) appeared on Glenn Beck’s Blaze TV to discuss the recent admission by the Pentagon that Unidentified Flying Objects exist. A Pentagon video release last week, which made the rounds of news shows, brings the question of UFO existence out into the open.
The Pentagon released a statement last week that confirmed that three US Navy videos that captured objects that were unidentified flying through the air, between 2004 and 2015, are legitimate. It was the first time in history that the Pentagon had come forward about the existence of UFOs, though the mysterious machines have a very long history of sightings in not only the US, but across the world (Roswell anyone?).
Beck began the segment by saying that the subject of UFOs is a difficult one to talk about seriously, with the way it has been admonished in media and culture. UFO talk is typically the purview of crackpot conspiracy theorists.
That the Pentagon has now verified the veracity of these videos may mean that research into this area will gain legitimacy.
Beck mentioned Carl Sagan, who said that the universe would be a "colossal waste of space" if we happened to be the only ones who call it home, but Beck assured his audience that he does not believe we are the only ones.
There are no doubt thousands of fraudulent UFO videos that have been circulating online for decades. One example, "UFOs on the Moon: From March 26, 2020," is this kind of nonsense that subverts the legitimacy of authentic sightings and research that is currently being done in the field, research being conducted by TTSA, for example.
And the revelation of the existence of the machines that Navy pilots captured on video is not to say that "aliens" exist, as such.
Beck makes the disclaimer that there is currently no available evidence that the Pentagon has materials related to aliens, or even has the slightest interest in them. However, the Pentagon's press release was the first time they ever admitted publicly that these UFOs may be on landscape, in that the videos can't be explained in any context with which we are currently familiar. They are truly mysterious.
A few days after the video release, the Pentagon rolled out a Space Force promotional video, with the tagline, "Maybe your purpose on this planet, isn’t on this planet."
A question that is being asked is whether these objects were manufactured by a country that has developed a technology that is far superior to that of the US, or whether these objects really are from somewhere other than this planet.
Beck introduced Luis Elizondo and Christopher Mellon onto the show, both of whom work for TTSA.
The conversation primarily circled around Beck digging for answers from Mellon and his take on the nature of UFOs, and why he believes there is good reason to think these machines are not from Earth.
Beck: You [TTSA] collect documents and physical materials from public and private sources, related to the UAP—which is the official term for the UFOs—to study it and then transition the transformative technologies behind it to wider applications of public benefit… that’s amazing, just that. Can you tell me about that?
Mellon: Sure, so Commander Dave Fravor of the Black Aces who observed one of these objects said, “I would like to fly that thing,” and we’d like to think that’s possible with sufficient research and focus, in the public and private sectors. These aircraft are demonstrating unprecedented capabilities… capabilities that are beyond even what our science is able to understand. So, they also, though, are demonstrating it’s possible, so we’re pressing ahead, as arduously as we can to get more information, and try to better understand how this is happening in an effort to duplicate these capabilities.
Beck: So I want to be really clear and be very careful that I don’t create this atmosphere or the impression that I am a Area 51 believer and, you know, that we’ve got aliens in jars and everything else. Maybe we do, I don’t know, but I don’t think so. But I do want to ask, when you say you want physical materials from public and private sources, do you believe that we do have physical materials from some of these things that we have been studying that maybe we’re holding back?
Mellon: We’re not taking that position publicly, but there are materials that have been provided to us, and individuals providing them, in various cases have established plausible linkage to explosions that have occurred, for example, and materials that have been recovered. Other researchers have been doing this for years, Jacque Vallee, for example, and some of these materials have genuinely extraordinary properties, so…
Beck: Can you give me an example of what that means?
Mellon: Sure, so, there isn’t any metal, for example, naturally occurring element, a subset of the atoms that have an extra neutron that are an isotope. So on our planet, there’s a signature, iron will always have, say, four percent of the atoms in a total sample that have an extra neutron, so some of these materials have different ratios than anything normally found on Earth, so it raises the questions of whether someone was manipulating those in a lab somewhere on Earth at great expense, or whether these materials actually came from outside the solar system, formed in a different stellar explosion and different solar system. The ability to manipulate materials at that level is one, extraordinary, and two, it enables different engineering processes, could support different engineering processes and different science. So it’s the kind of thing that we’re seeking to establish in our work and our research.
Beck: Because I know that we’ve talked about hyper-speeds, I can’t remember what it’s called, speeds that are just not… there’s no alloy…
Beck: …on earth, yeah, hypersonic. There’s just no alloy that will hold up to that. And that’s what we’re seeing on some of these videos, right?
Mellon: That is correct. The analysis of these vehicles, and also I would [unintelligible]… velocities that no aircraft that we know of could withstand and no pilot could withstand.
Beck: How fast are they going, do we think?
Mellon: In some cases, it’s not even the top speed that’s so stunning, as much as the acceleration itself. From zero to thousands of miles per hour in a couple of seconds.
Mellon: So in the case of the Tic Tac, the top velocity might have been 5 or 7 thousand miles per hour, but to achieve that velocity in practically the blink of an eye.
