Project Blue Book

- This page is about the UFO study done by sane people. For frothing lunacy, see Project Blue Beam.
Project Blue Book was a United States Air Force study into unidentified flying objects, conducted from 1952 until 1970.
The Air Force summary of the results is:
- No UFO reported, investigated and evaluated by the Air Force was ever an indication of threat to our national security;
- There was no evidence submitted to or discovered by the Air Force that sightings categorized as "unidentified" represented technological developments or principles beyond the range of modern scientific knowledge; and
- There was no evidence indicating that sightings categorized as "unidentified" were extraterrestrial vehicles.
By the time Project Blue Book ended, it had collected 12,618 UFO reports, and concluded that most of them were misidentifications of natural phenomena (clouds, stars, etc.) or conventional aircraft. 718 were not conclusively identified, but did not defy the science or technology of the time.
Also, the whole archive of reports (minus names and similar personal information) is available through FOI and, of course, online.
Faced with the overwhelming evidence, all of which they could review themselves, conspiracy theorists the world over realised they were wasting their time on this rubbish, turned over a new leaf and did sane things instead.[citation NOT needed]
