THE AMERICAN AVIATION CREATES A SERVICE FOR THE STUDY OF THE "FLYING SAUCERS"

Washington, October 8 (A.F.P.). -- Because of the great number of "flying saucers" that private individuals claim to have seen, the American government decided to name a physicist of reputation, professor Edward Condon, of the university of Colorado, at the head of a new service for the study of this phenomenon.

Research which this office will carry out will be financed by the United States Air Force, who was until now in charge of the U.F.O. (flying objects of unspecified nature) file.

Ce dossier contient plus de dix mille rapports sur des "visions" constatées entre 1947 et 1965, et même des photographies. L'aviation américaine s'est déjà beaucoup penchée sur cette question, et attribue l'apparition de ces U.F.O. à des phénomènes de plasma. Elle a même provoqué expérimentalement des formations de plasma dans l'atmosphère [faux, en laboratoire] pour mieux les étudier. This file contains more than ten thousand reports on "visions" noted between 1947 and 1965, and even photographs. The United States Air Force has already dealt a lotwith this matter, and allots [false] the appearance of these U.F.O. to phenomena of plasma. They even caused in experiments formations of plasma in the atmosphere [false, in laboratory] for better studying them.
