Roswell Slides and Shady Characters

That's the subject of my new Mysterious Universe article, which focuses on the controversial lives of two guys who got involved in the crashed UFO controversy back in the 1940s and who are now (even after death) playing a role in the saga of the so-called Roswell Slides. Their names: Leo Gebauer and Silas Newton.

Here's the link.


  1. I'll be offline from later today and back online at the weekend. So, as all the comments at this blog have to be moderated, don't whine and stamp your feet if you don't see your comment until Sunday.

  2. Nick - I'm one of the folks who has been occasionally posting on Kevin's blog post. I follows UFOlogy very closely in the '80s and '90s then tossed it as it seemed there were no real explanations and far too many "competitors" selling theories and in turf battles over hypotheses. Picking it up again 25 years later it seems nothing has changed - in particular with the Roswell case. I might add that your theory is in fact pretty sound even if not acceptable to those who desire the ET theory. A deep dive into all aspects of this subject indicate a strong link between your theory, Heiser's thoughts, Cannon's thoughts, and even to some degree (a bit outlandish) Dietrich's commentary. I would conclude that there was a manned aerial device attached to a large, potentially captured or refs rusted Japanese mega-balloon, intended to test biological or chemical weapons through high altitude drone tests. The cover up is about the fact that Japanese criminals from Unit 731 under PaperClip were attempting to evaluate long range jet stream MAVs possibly using captured German flying wing technology. Research shows Germans at El Paso pointed the finger to the Horton brothers indicating they didn't have much clue as to the source. This may have all been focused via the Japanese side of PaperClip using the crew you cited. It is also known that Japanese crime syndicates will often cut the fingers off of their own people giving rise to the four fingered observations. The nber of days the bodies sat in the desert accounts for the so called stench and grey skin appearance, as well as a bloated look in the face giving rise to a larger bald head. Note these prisoners were also of small stature and evacuated or thin by choice, and this adds to the large headedness as well. People should also examine Lippish and his designs as there is a close approximation perhaps even better than Horten's wing. As further noted some early testimony indicates there was no observable propulsion system, or if it was there it was simplistic in that it was a ramjet. You would only need to send one or two crew up to pilot this craft and it may have been designed to drop from the balloon for flight. If chemicals were being tested at the time of crash, and particularly radioactive elements, this would account for soil samples taken today that show higher than usual radioactivity in the area of the crash, not to mention teams out to clean up the crash site well after debrie was picked up. The cover up being that we were testing on our own GIs or people with chemical weapons using Nazi tech and Japanese criminals. We would want to hide that story for a long time including destruction of documents as the USAF eval stated.

  3. Nick can you point me to the documents you had found on Roswell that came after your book was published? Heard an older interview where you cited new evidence for Japanese Balloons. Also thought this was interesting:

    1947: A secret AEC document dated April 17 reads, "It is desired that no document be released which refers to experiments with humans that might have an adverse reaction on public opinion or result in legal suits," revealing that the U.S. government was aware of the health risks its nuclear tests posed to military personnel conducting the tests or nearby civilians (Goliszek).
