Nothing to see here citizens, just keep moving. It was on this date in 1997, a week before the 50th anniversary of the event, that the US Air Force issued it’s once and for all, final, case closed report on the Roswell Incident. As a matter of fact, the report was titled “The Roswell Report, Case Closed.” The document stated definitively, and in no uncertain terms, that there was no evidence that any kind of life form was found in the Roswell area in connection with the reported UFO sightings, and that the “bodies” recovered were not aliens at all, but were in fact dummies used in parachute tests conducted in the region. Furious ufologists called bologna and rushed to point out the report’s inconsistencies. With conspiracy theories still alive and well on the Internet, Roswell continues to thrive as a tourist destination for UFO enthusiasts far and wide, hosting the annual UFO Encounter Festival each July and welcoming visitors year-round to its International UFO Museum and Research Center.
