UFOs and the Secret German Space Program


… by Michael Shrimpton

Happy New Year everybody! With President Trump in the White House and Brexit finally starting to happen, it should be a good one. Assuming, that is, that the incoming Administration are briefed on the DVD and don’t walk into a bear-trap, like poor old President Reagan did. I hope that Donald remembers to duck.

President-elect Trump is however making some excellent appointments, with respect. In particular he has appointed a strong national security team. He’s also had a briefing from the capable Mossad director, so he should by now know about the DVD and the threat from Dachau.


I was prompted to make this my last topic for the year by a televised interview (for her YouTube channel) with that nice lady Kerry Cassidy just before Christmas, when the subject came up. I know it is of huge interest to many readers and the public at large. Knowing who else is out there is also of fundamental importance to humanity.

However, the field has been cluttered up with disinformation. As I explain in Spyhunter a whole bunch of German scientists and aircraft designers dropped out of sight at the end of World War II. Not all went to work for the Allies. It is perfectly clear that there was a secret German space program after 1945.

Some of this was run out of India, some out of South America and some out of the UK, USA and USSR, with technological developments the Allies paid for being stolen and used in the secret space program.

Needing an explanation for strange objects appearing in the sky the DVD’s Propaganda Section came up with the cunning plan of blaming extra-terrestrials. The DVD’s penetration operation inside CIA & FBI, the Correa/COREA Group, easily sold this concept to the CIA top brass, as the agency had a secret program all of its own.

The boys even had their own secret air base at Groom Dry Lake in Nevada, known to all UFOlogists as Area 51. ‘Bill’, the nice U-2 pilot to whom I refer in Spyhunter, was there when Tony LeVier first took a U-2 up for a spin and was part of the U-2 and SR-71 shakedown programs.

The idea of UFOs was pushed by two German agents in particular, Read-Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, the CIA’s first director, and ex-Marine Corps flier Major Donald Keyhoe, whose books on flying saucers became influential. I remember reading one as a boy.

The problem of course is that neither Hillenkoetter nor Keyhoe was acting in good faith. Everything they wrote and said about UFOs – and much more besides – is suspect.

The same goes for anybody flashing a badge from a German-penetrated agency such as the FBI or the CIA, or from defense contractors dependent upon orders from Uncle Sam. Secret approaches from government agents bearing ‘suppressed’ news about UFOs can be very flattering, but should be viewed with reserve.

The strategy has worked time and again. A variation is the release of official documents about UFOs, invariably dating back to administrations under German control, or where the President happened to be a German agent. Dwight D Eisenhower was a past master at this. Pretty much anything from the Eisenhower Administration hinting at extraterrestrial visitations can be tossed straight in the trash can, especially if marked ‘Top Secret’ or above. The best disinformation is marked ‘Top Secret’.

UFO sightings

There have been thousands of these since the late 1940s, when the UFO scam kicked off. Nearly all can be discounted, either because the observers were simply seeing something they wanted to see, or lacked aviation literacy and were easily confused.

Some have simply been made up, either by over-keen UFOlogists, or by the DVD, or one of its sub-agencies. Genuine sightings by pilots or the military shouldn’t be discounted, but almost invariably these will be sightings of either US or German aircraft or spacecraft on the secret list.

Faking UFO imagery has almost become an industry. Some of the fakes are well-meaning, of course, in the sense that the people making them genuinely believe in UFOs and are just trying to help the cause. Others are done for profit, or as part of the German disinformation campaign. In over 60 years there has not a single, authenticated image of an extraterrestrial craft.

The Secret German Space Program

This is not to say that there have been no genuine sightings of unknown spacecraft. There have been whispers for years about NASA astronauts sighting other craft in space, when no other launch has been scheduled. I would not be in the least bit surprised to learn that the DVD shadowed US spacecraft up to the 1970s, probably launching from now-abandoned covert bases in the more remote parts of South America.

How much of this covert space program survives and how far they got are open questions. I doubt they got as far as Mars, but they might have reached the Moon. The DVD’s murderous hostility to the Apollo program was notable. They tried very hard to strangle the program at birth and were eventually able to cut it short, citing budget pressures, which they helped to create. We still haven’t got beyond the Moon, sadly.

These are fascinating space mysteries. I don’t pretend to have all the answers, indeed I look forward to finding them out!

Is There Intelligent Life Elsewhere In The Universe?

This question of course assumes that there is intelligent life here on Earth. Reading the mainstream media you could be forgiven for doubting it, but overall, with exceptions, including many Democrats, human beings are intelligent.

I am quite sure that there is intelligent life elsewhere in the universe. We might even find life, albeit microbial, elsewhere in the Solar System, Europa being perhaps the best prospect. There are simply too many planets in our own galaxy and too many galaxies for there not to be.

It would be the height of hubris for us to assume that we are alone. It would also be rather boring not to have intelligent alien company whom we could invite round for a drink and a game of chess (Scrabble might be a bit unfair!). Since we can’t guarantee that any extraterrestrials out there would be friendly, it would also be exceedingly silly for us to assume that we are alone.

However, I must sound a note of caution. I don’t think that either our galaxy or the rest of the universe is exactly teeming with intelligent life. The more we learn about our own origins and the formation of the solar system the more remarkable it is that we came about.

There is much talk of so-called ‘Goldilocks’ planets – not too hot and not too cold. I have no doubt there are a lot of goldilocks planets in our own galaxy, probably tens of thousands and possibly hundreds of thousands of them.

There seem to me to be three main problems, which help explain why the boys on Apollo 11 didn’t have to worry about colliding with UFOs on their way to the Moon (and yes they did get there!):

(1)  Rotation

(2)  Time and

(3)  Surviving Nuclear Energy

Not all planets rotate. Ours does, as a consequence of an ancient collision with a planetoid, creating the Moon. The monumental energy imparted by that impact is gradually being lost, which is why Earth’s rotation is slowing down, albeit imperceptibly.

It is very difficult to see how intelligent life could emerge on a stationary planet. One side of the planet would always be too hot and bright, the other too cold and dark. Tides, bringing water onto land, also seem to be essential.

Then there is time. The galaxy is as ancient as it is vast – it’s about 13 billion years old. It’s even older than Henry Kissinger (sorry, Henry!). That is time enough not only for civilisations to evolve but also to die out. There might have been a million civilisations in the Milky Way to date but only a thousand might have survived. We simply do not know, and won’t find out until we start exploring.

Most if not all advanced civilisations are going to discover nuclear energy. In so doing they will have discovered the means to destroy themselves, if they are not careful. Thanks to Fidel Castro and the DVD we nearly did. Not every civilisation will have a Dick Walters or a Frank Roberts, both later friends of mine, to bail them out of trouble should a nuclear crisis arise.

Are Starships Possible?

One reason we can safely discount most UFO sightings is that they are atmospheric, that is to say sightings of ships in the atmosphere, without supporting evidence of a mothership. The one place we would not find a starship is in the atmosphere. The most any extraterrestrial craft in the atmosphere could be is a shuttle or landing craft.

Whilst fusion energy would not require large amounts of fuel, the reactors themselves would be large, and there would have to be several, to provide redundancy. A starship would also need engineering spaces, accommodation for its crew and large holds to store food and spares, as well as control spaces.

One thing a starship would not be is small, nor is there any reason to suppose that it would be shaped like a saucer, indeed a tea-cup would be as sensible a shape as a saucer. The saucer shape seems to have been inspired by the pointless German wartime experiments into flying saucers, pointless in the sense that whilst they might have got a saucer off the ground, it didn’t do anything.

As I have observed before, Einstein was wrong about the speed of light being a limiting velocity. It isn’t. Interstellar travel is therefore perfectly possible in theory. Journeys however would be lengthy, even at multiples of light speed, as the distances are so vast. You can forget worm-holes and other short-cuts so beloved of science-fiction script-writers as a means of getting around Einstein’s artificial restriction on top speed.

This Week’s Movie Review: Passengers (2016, dir. Morten Tyldum)

This brings me neatly to this week’s movie review. Passengers is an enjoyable interstellar yarn, well-acted and stylish, where space is a backdrop to the developing romance between the two charming leads, Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence.

Delightful as the movie is, it illustrates how NOT to do interstellar travel. The intrepid colonists aboard the Avalon need no fewer than 120 years to get to their destination, the fictional planet Homestead II.

The scriptwriters get some things about interstellar travel right. The Avalon is over 3,000 ft long, which is about the sort of size one would expect for an interstellar passenger liner. She uses fusion power, and has a system for deflecting gas molecules and other bits of interstellar debris. She slingshots around stars, which would no doubt give her a boost, although the movie doesn’t explain why she would need it, with an interstellar propulsion system or hyper-drive. The passenger modules rotate, simulating gravity.

Where it all goes wrong is the assumption that Einstein was right. He was a German spy, for heaven’s sake – of course he was just making it up! The Avalon is limited to a top speed of 0.5C, or half-light. Anyone would think that there were speed cameras in space.

There are several insuperable problems with this, practical as well as psychological. The passengers have to reconcile themselves to never seeing their friends and loved ones again. In practice they are also committed to a one-way journey, although Aurora (played by Jennifer Lawrence) has purchased a round-ticket, silly girl. Her planned journey, of 240 years, would take longer than Chiltern Railways from Birmingham to London.

They also have to go into hibernation. Hibernation has been a feature of science-fiction movies and TV series since Lost in Space (the original TV series, I mean, starring Jonathan Harris, not the movie). No one has yet demonstrated that it is possible. Bears do it, but only for the winter, and they age as they hibernate – they’re really only having an extended nap.

Our metabolism does not in fact slow down that much whilst we sleep. Slowing it right down seems to me to imply tissue damage, not least to the central nervous system and the brain. I doubt you’d be popping down to the bar a few hours after you wake up, as our lovebirds do, encountering a legless Michael Sheen, by which I mean an android barman without legs, not a barman who has sampled too much of his own product. At least the Avalon has a large store of whiskey, an obvious requisite, it may be thought, for interstellar space travel.

It’s not just the passengers who go into hibernation of course. The crew are also asleep. This is positively dangerous, not least if you’re going to navigate through star systems where there might be rather larger chunks of space debris than your electromagnetic field is designed to handle.

The plot does not explain where the meteoroid shower comes from – meteoroids, like asteroids and comets, orbit stars. They don’t just float around space. Anyway, the Avalon gets whacked by a meteoroid, and Jim Preston, Chris Pratt’s character, gets woken up 90 years too soon, which, since the crew are still all sound asleep, is just as well.

There is no way that you could send a starship into interstellar space with over 5,000 souls aboard and run it for decades on autopilot. There is also no way that you aren’t going to encounter engineering or software problems requiring human intervention over the course of 120 years. Would you trust Microsoft if they guaranteed the next edition of Windows for 120 years?

Luckily for our plucky space voyagers an engineer, well-played by Laurence Fishburn (Perry White from Man of Steel), is eventually awoken by the same software snafus which woke Jim. I won’t spoil the plot by revealing what happens then.

At no point does the movie address the psychological problem of intervening technological developments on Earth. If anyone were silly enough to attempt an interstellar voyage on this basis, they would soon find themselves overtaken by faster starships.

Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds

This was very sad. It rather looks as though poor Carrie Fisher died on the plane, which is not a tribute to United’s in-flight service. The news on Christmas Eve certainly didn’t sound very good, although one can hardly blame loved ones and doctors for wanting to put her on a ventilator. Indeed high praise is due to the doctor and nurse who went to her aid on the flight. I am sure that everybody was doing their best.

I am not suggesting that the flight should have diverted, as it seems that Carrie’s fatal heart attack happened on the approach to LAX, although in practice cardiac arrests are often preceded by prolonged patient distress, a point forcibly impressed upon me by a late client of mine. He suffered a heart attack, poor man, in the witness-box, when represented by other counsel. The learned judge carried on, absurdly with respect, and damned his evidence, seemingly unaware that he must have been very unwell throughout his time in the box.

Carrie Fisher will always be remembered for her stellar performance as Princess Leia in Star Wars, just as her mother Debbie Reynolds will always remembered for Singing In The Rain. Both were exceptionally talented. I know it is being said that fame came too soon for Carrie, but what where her advisers doing? It seems to me that this very nice lady was not given the help in life that she deserved.

That her heartbroken mother should die within a day of her beloved daughter’s officially announced death made it a double tragedy, emphasising how important it is to support elderly parents in the event of the sudden death of a child, especially at Christmas.

The sad news made headlines in Britain over the Christmas period and rightly so. We have lost two very fine talents, both of whom arguably deserved more care and compassion in return for the joy and delight they gave millions. RIP, Carrie and Debbie.

  1. The Secret German Space Program never ended, just continued in the U.S when under Project Paperclip, a few like Von Braun were brought over and started NASA and JPL, then quickly went underground at Los Alamos, Area 51, S4 and Dulce.

    Most of them though, went to Antarctica, South America and Australia.

    They have been using “alien technology” to advance themselves for YEARS! Arguing whether they are “ours” or “theirs” is a mute point because they are in it “together”! All triangular shaped are SSP old crafts that they are using now for fun.

    There was a covenant made to trade technology for a few “humans and animals” that would have their experiences masked/erased from memory (the lucky ones), the rest are kept in underground facilities that are so enormous and technically advanced it would make your head spin in disbelief. They are cloning, experimenting with DNA, animal/human combinations and trying to make a hybrid they can control. It is too much to write here but it is an incredible story that has been going on under every ones feet.

    BTW, the good ET;s don’t parade their craft around unless they have a specific purpose, so most seen are DNA gathering “greys” or worse.

  2. I prefer the Iron Sky theory minus the reptilians. Sarah Palin was chosen for a reason. Hows that for not being a boring toad. Shrimpton knows his airplanes and has a great reservoir of engineering information, but no imagination. I think he was taught that day dreaming is a work of evil.

  3. “As I have observed before, Einstein was wrong about the speed of light being a limiting velocity.”

    In his 1905 paper “On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies”, para.4, Einstein did not rule out v>c but said: “For velocities greater than that of light our deliberations become meaningless . . . we shall, however, find in what follows, that the velocity of light in our theory plays the part, physically, of an infinitely great velocity”.

    I have argued at length elsewhere that Einstein’s special theory of relativity is a hoax:

  4. Yep, age regression, a.k.a. Garrantology(good hey ?) is here they can pretty much keep people alive an awful long time. Short of traumatic death possibly forever ! Fine so long as they pay for it!

  5. Thanks for the kind comments, where the comments have been kind!

    I think my point has been misunderstood – since there have been secret space programs since 1945 I am not denying that there have been credible sightings, like JAL, of UFOs. My point is that these are unknown, terrestrial, atmospheric craft, not extraterrestrial.

    No one has tackled my point that all the claimed sightings of extraterrestrial craft have been of the wrong size, i.e. too small for interstellar flight, and in the wrong place, i.e. the atmosphere.

    As for British being best, well, yes, it’s a known fact!

    • Thanks for the article!

      Ami…Child of the Stars is a childrens book written by an abductee.

      After his experience, he was told specifically to write about his experience as a “childrens book”, so that he wouldn’t be seen as crazy.

      Adults have a hard time with this subject matter… The reason why is that we seem to be conditioned with extremist thinking. One thing has to be A or B. Black or White. In this case, terrestrial, or they are just bugs, balloons or drones?

      A more complete statement would be that the credible sightings could have a number of different origins… Not just two. There are visitors from off-planet, there are visitors from within our planet, there are many more “breakaway” civilizations than the ones the Nazis created, and or course there is man-made reverse engineered technology as well.

      As far as size, the JAL incident was with an object that was quite large, several times larger than the jet, and had several smaller craft coming in and out of it.

      There are also other aspects of technology out there that allows cloaking as well as massive reductions in size. A recent YouTube clip shows a small craft taking off from spot in Joshua Tree National Park which shows this very small triangular object taking off from the ground, changing shape, and flies off as it gets much larger. This could well be man-made, off-planet, or from some underground base… or more. There are never only two answers for anything.

    • rameriz,
      What I saw in my nieghbors yard defies known logic for anything real in my traditionally boring neighborhood. It didn’t belong here. Unless: Walmart is selling remote control toys that can sit still in 20 mph winds, follow the streets of the entire 4 blocks of my neighborhood, and bolt off into space with no noise. Follow this up with creating something my imagination pondered on while seeing it.
      Me: your not a hawk.
      What I saw the next day: three eagles flying in a tight circle at the exact spot where I saw the black drone. The sun was glinting off their wings. It gently hovered in one direction till it was out of site, about 5 miles.

      Maybe I should check out a toy store in NY?

  6. Fantastic article heading title followed by typical VT mush. Notice the flawed analytic justification statement. “In over 60 years there has not a single, authenticated image of an extraterrestrial craft.” Please reveal O all knowing one just who is going to do the so called “authentication?.”

  7. As usual, Michael “fascinated” with Germans. Perhaps, he regrets they lost the war otherwise, he must have been thrilled about having a ride in an UFO with Goering at the controls.

  8. Shrimpton bowling spin incredible, who would have thought it ?
    How’s the Flipper delivery coming along ? The shoulder still up to it ?

    I have actually seen a UFO many years ago to be fair, but it was near a MOD base in Northern England, shaped like a fat Cigar, this thing was huge. I had two witnesses and they were as stunned as I, goodness knows what technology the Big Boys really have.

    • No, this never made the press ! I was at work driving the van. Early starts, nothing about. When all three of us saw this craft. As plain as the nose on your face, there it was.

      Very strange, but I have no doubt it was simply advanced aviation.
      The MOD base was fairly small, but it was only a few miles away.

  9. I get really annoyed when people try to write about the E.T. topic if they have not thoroughly researched the one real E.T. contact case that has more physical and other evidence than all of the other stories combined. Shrimpy loses all credibility when he says there have not been real UFO photographs in 60 years. Are you retarded? I own 42 real E.T. UFO photographs from the case, taken in the late 70’s. I’m still waiting for Gordon or Jim or someone legitimate to research the one case that everyone else bases their lies off of. VT, when you are ready to look at 1,476 pre digital photographs, at least 300 of which are clear daytime photos of E.T. craft, 34 8mm films, read a few 76 page professional photograph analysis reports, read the 125 eye witness accounts, listen to the sound recordings, metal sample spectrographs, E.T. fingerprints, E.T. foot prints, 700 contact report transcripts, and a few important books written by the contactee, you will scoff at all the B.S. that is out there. There’s tons of geopolitical intel as well, which would explain the 20+ documented assassination attempts. No, you can’t do it in a day, week, or month. Yes, many photographs and films were stolen or manipulated. It would take 3-6 months of daily reading to wrap your head around the basics. Yes, most sightings are natural or military craft, but yes E.T.s of various races have always been visiting Earth for various reasons. Get a clue, guys.. WCFTSATM

  10. I am sure this article will be acceptable to many who follow VT, but have not delved much into the whole ET problem. But Mr. Shrimpton is too mainstream for my tastes, and who is to say he isn’t following his own agenda, or being fed data by someone who is? As far as I know, he is the only one out there to mention the DVD, yet “reptilian” humanoids are known to many, and all of those commentators describe them in roughly the same way. Furthermore, past lives is by this time a sure thing, and past life memories include being other creatures besides humans. The data available on this subject IS a deplorable mess. But who would have it otherwise? Particularly since ET is more than likely participating in the deception for their own purposes. There is almost no one who has their hands on good data that is willing to simply honestly tell what they know. Almost no one. If I had to point to some, I might include William Tompkins, as well as Robert Morning Sky’s grandfather. There is something there. No amount of putting one’s hands over one’s eyes is going to make it go away.

    • Absolutely, we would need several folks to volunteer for a spin in one of these things.

      I would be interested, so long as someone else went first.

  11. We don’t even know what is going on down here on Earth i.e. Antarctica. I think we should figure out our own living space first. This might help with future endeavors…

  12. Are you trying to pepare us for your fake alien invasion with the fake alien god to rule from Jerusalem over the world and try to blame it on the “vile germans” ? As always the germans must be the culprits for everything what went wrong, or was it Putin ?

  13. science fiction. Not in the nearest future. Have you seen what damage occurs when 15gr plastic piece impacts metal shield? I mean magneto rail-gun. Light speed is 30 times faster. What will be if spaceship meets any of space “cobblestone”….
    We got a lot of tasks at home (Earth): we explored lands, seas and oceans, nearest space – but we didn’t learn how to live and behave like people….
