Delve into the aftermath and repercussions of the 1947 Roswell incident, when many believe an alien spacecraft crashed in New Mexico. Based on The Day after Roswell by Lt. Col. Philip J. Corso and William Birnes, this controversial special inquires whether technologies like the laser, fiber optics and night vision were developed with the aid of aliens.
Career officer Corso claims his first alien encounter came on July 6, 1947, while on late-night security rounds at Ft. Riley, Kansas he saw bodies of EBEs (extraterrestrial biological entities) inside shipping crates. In 1961, as Chief of Foreign Technology in the Army's department of Research and Development, his job included analyzing alien technology from Roswell, then introducing it into America's technological mainstream--thus, reverse-engineering alien artifacts. But scientists credit hard work, not alien contact, with these technological advances.
