Harlow's Notes: So it is quite obvious that ufos do not exist.
Officially, aliens have never existed but flying saucers very nearly
did. The National Archives has recently published never-before-seen
schematics and details of a 1950s military venture, called Project 1794,
which aimed to build a supersonic flying saucer.
The newly declassified materials show the U.S. Air Force had a contract
with a now-defunct Canadian company to build an aircraft unlike anything
seen before. Project 1794 got as far as the initial rounds of product
development and into prototype design. In a memo dating from 1956 the
results from pre-prototype testing are summarized and reveal exactly
what the developers had hoped to create.
The saucer was supposed to reach a top speed of â€œbetween Mach 3 and Mach
4, a ceiling of over 100,000 ft. and a maximum range with allowances of
about 1,000 nautical miles,â€ according to the document.
If the plans had followed through to completion they would have created
a saucer, which could spin through the Earthâ€™s stratosphere at an
average top speed of about 2,600 miles per hour. Wow. It was also
designed to take off and land vertically (VTOL), using propulsion jets
to control and stabilize the aircraft. Admittedly the range of 1,000
nautical miles seems limited in comparison to the other specifications â€“
but if youâ€™d hopped on the disk in New York it couldâ€™ve had you in Miami
within about 24 minutes.
The document also hints that the product development seemed to be going
better than planned; â€œthe present design will provide a much superior
performance to that estimated at the start of contract negotiations.â€
It begs the question â€“ why was the project dropped? Why arenâ€™t wars
being fought with flying saucers? The cost of continuing to prototype
was estimated at $3,168,000, which roughly translates to about $26.6
million in todayâ€™s money and wouldnâ€™t have been an insane price for such
advanced technology. The problem with the other flying saucers developed
under the same program (see video) is pretty clear. They didnâ€™t get
anywhere near 100,000 feet in altitude, more like five or six if you
were lucky â€“ so the military finally pulled the plug in 1960.
