After finding a strange object in New Mexico in 1947 rumours of UFOs started to spread fast. According to many people the US government is still hiding something. The Roswell UFO Incident was the recovery of an object that crashed in the general vicinity of Roswell, New Mexico, on July 1947, allegedly an extra-terrestrial spacecraft and its alien occupants. Since the late 1970s the incident has been the subject of intense controversy and of conspiracy theories as to the true nature of the object that crashed. The United States Armed Forces maintains that what was recovered was debris from an experimental high-altitude surveillance balloon belonging to a classified program named “Mogul”; however, many UFO proponents maintain that an alien craft was found and its occupants were captured, and that the military then engaged in a cover up. The incident has turned into a widely known pop culture phenomenon, making the name Roswell synonymous with UFOs.
