Ben Rich is a well-known engineer thought to be one of the top engineers in the country. From 1975 to 1991, he was the Director of Lockheed’s Skunk Works, the division responsible for development of several advanced technological aircraft including the U-2, the SR-17 Blackbird, the F-117 Nighthawk stealth bomber, and the F-22 Raptor. In a recent presentation about the infamous Skunk Works program, Rich made several unusual comments that had many in the audience scratching their heads.
During the presentation, Rich hinted on more than one occasion that more, undisclosed, top-secret advanced technologies have been developed since the F-117 was introduced. Of course, Rich could not go into specifics. MUFON Director Jan Harzan, who was in attendance at the presentation, told reporters:
“He intimated that there was a lot of other stuff going on that he could not talk about. He ended his talk with a black disk zipping out into outer space, and he ended it with these words: ‘We now have the technology to take ET home.’”
Several in attendance believed that Rich’s final comment inferred that aliens had visited Earth, could possibly still be here, and that we possess the technology to take them across the vast expanses of space. From there, the conversation got even stranger. As Rich was leaving the stage, an engineer asked him if he thought it was theoretically possible to travel to the stars. Rich responded:
“We found an error in the equations and we now know how to travel to the stars, and it won’t take us a lifetime to do it.”
Another engineer promptly asked,
“I have a real interest in the propulsion you are talking about that gets us to the stars. Can you tell me how it works?”
Rich stopped and looked at him, then asked:
“Do you know how ESP works?”
The engineer responded:
“I don’t know, all points in space and time are connected?”
To which Rich replied,
“That’s how it works.”
Rich then he turned around and walked away.
Rich disclosed additional information regarding Skunk Works and the possession of alien technology by the United States government. Below is a more complete transcription of Ben Rich’s speech:
“We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do. We now have the technology to take ET home. No, it won’t take someone’s lifetime to do it. There is an error in the equations. We know what it is. We now have the capability to travel to the stars. First, you have to understand that we will not get to the stars using chemical propulsion. Second, we have to devise a new propulsion technology. What we have to do is find out where Einstein went wrong.”
Dr. Ben R. Rich also confirmed the following:
1. There are 2 types of UFOs — the ones we build and ones ‘they’ build. We learned from both crash retrievals and actual “hand-me-downs.” The Government knew and until 1969 took an active hand in the administration of that information. After a 1969 Nixon “purge”, administration was handled by an international board of directors in the private sector.
2. Nearly all “biomorphic” aerospace designs were inspired by the Roswell spacecraft — from Kelly’s SR-71 Blackbird onward to today’s drones, UCAVs, and aerospace craft.
3. It was Ben Rich’s opinion that the public should not be told [about UFOs and extraterrestrials] . He believed they could not handle the truth — ever. Only in the last months of his decline did he begin to feel that the “international corporate board of directors” dealing with the “Subject” could represent a bigger problem to citizens’ personal freedoms under the United States Constitution than the presence of off-world visitors themselves.”
In addition, another Lockheed Design Engineer Don Phillips, confirmed much of what Rich said. Phillips told reporters:
“These UFOs were huge and they would just come to a stop and do a 60 degree, 45 degree, 10 degree turn, and then immediately reverse this action”. During the Apollo landing, Neil Armstrong says, “They’re here. They are right over there and looking at the size of those ships., it is obvious they don’t like us being here”. When I was working with the Skunk Works with Kelly Johnson, we signed an agreement with the government to keep very quiet about this.
Anti-gravitational research was going on. We know that there were some captured craft from 1947 in Roswell, they were real. And, yes, we really did get some technology from them. And, yes, we really did put it to work. We knew each other from what we call an unseen industry. We can term it black, deep black, or hidden.
The knowledge I have of these technologies came from the craft that were captured here. I didn`t see the craft, nor did I see the bodies, but I certainly know some of the people that did. There was no question that there were beings from outside the planet.
And if alien were hostile, with their weaponry they could have destroyed us a long time ago .We got these things that are handhold scanners that scan the body and determine what the condition is. We can also treat from the same scanner.
I can tell you personally that we’ve been working on them. And we have ones that can diagnose and cure cancer. One of the purposes I had for founding my technology corporation in 1998 was to bring forth these technologies that can clean the air and can help get rid of the toxins, and help reduce the need for so much fossil fuel. Yes, it is time. I can tell you personally that it has already started.”
