A 1940 Rocket experiment at Roswell (photo-news item)

Spanish UFO researcher Jose Antonio Caravaca has sent us a 1940 news story (with photo) of rocket scientists carrying their rocket, used in a launch experiment:

Nothing to do with so-called Roswell incident but interesting, yes?

  • Interesting? No, not really. What would really be interesting is photos taken between July 4-July 6, 1947. Apparently there was much coming and going of military and civilian personel in and around Roswell during that period. No one took any pictures? When I was growing up in the 1950's we took our box cameras everywhere and took pictures of just about everything. We shot cars on the road, ballplayers on sandlots, swimers at waterholes, etc. Hard to believe (if the stories about Roswell are true) that there aren't black and white photos stuck in someones old photo album of the alleged odd goings on during that two-day period way back when.

  • I wish I could remember where I read that a rocket carrying a nuclear warhead was launched at Germany but crashed in Roswell , hence the massive coverup. Imagine having to explain how you nearly nuked your own country. July 1945 was the first official test of trinity

  • Dominick:

    I've raised the camera issue many times over the years, as you're right: box cameras were ubiquitous and no one took photos during the 1947 hub-bub? Odd, isn't it?

    Stephen, maybe you're remembering a sci-fi story...let's see if anyone can find it.

  • Goddard first moved his stuff to a ranch near Roswell in about 1935, where he continued his rocket research until, I think 1945. So he had vacated his site well before the 'Incident' we all keep talking about. I think he died in August of that year ('45). Don't know the location of the said ranch.

  • Another demonstration of why actual first hand on-site investigation is superior to surfing the intertubes...

    Should one actually visit Roswell, one could explore the Roswell Museum and Art Center, which has a large Goddard collection complete with a complete reproduction of his rocket lab:

    And if particular Roswell 'researchers' had any vague understanding of technology and engineering development, they might understand that blathering about 'mysterious advances' like Nitinol just makes them look stupid.

    Even Von Braun credited Goddard with creating modern spaceflight:
