[*] Nikola Tesla was the first person to build a device that was capable of hearing the alien radio waves. He told a reporter: “While experimenting in Colorado…I obtained extraordinary experimental evidence of the existence of life on Mars. I had perfected a wireless receiver of extraordinary sensitiveness, far beyond anything known, and I caught signals which I interpreted as meaning 1–2–3–4. I believe the Martians used numbers for communication because numbers are universal.”
[*] In 1954, a marine corps naval aviator, writer, and UFO research named Donald Keyhoe said that the U.S. Air Force had detected two satellites orbiting Earth. This was 3 years prior to the first human made satellite, Sputnik 1, being launched.
[*] In 1960, Time reported that a satellite was engaged in a polar orbit of Earth. All known US and Russian satellites were engaged in equatorial orbit instead. The US Department of Defense responded to the article and claimed that what Time reported as a satellite was actually a broken off piece of the Discoverer satellite, not it’s own device. No proof was offered.
[*] At the time of the sighting, the technology to put a satellite into polar orbit was not yet known — by either the US or Russia.
[*] In 1963 an American astronaut, Gordon Cooper, reported seeing a UFO while in orbit. This report is not listed in any official NASA documents.
[*] At a NASA station in Australia, around 100 people also saw the UFO Cooper reported.
