Part III: The Aliens of Roswell
Our story begins decades ago, in 1947 when a local Roswell, New Mexico rancher found something rather unusual in his sheep pasture. Scraps of strange debris littered his land. Local Air Force officials contended the remnants as a crashed weather balloon. But many people speculate the debris to be the remains of an extraterrestrial flying saucer. For the past 60 years, the Roswell incident has transformed into an enigma—prompting mass speculation and conspiracy of otherworldly beings, and imploring mankind’s ensuing question: are we alone?
