Project Serpo details what apparently happened after the famous Roswell crash in 1947. Ever see Close Encounters of the Third Kind? Apparently that’s similar to what happened in the Serpo case, which details a story of an exchange program set up to send 12 of our people to the home planet of the aliens who crashed in the New Mexico desert.

According to the account, “It is reported that after President Ronald Reagan watched a special screening of ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind,’ he privately spoke to Steven Spielberg and said, ‘You don’t know how true this really is.’” The Serpo story is supposedly told by anonymous retired US government employees and military personnel. It goes something like this…

Some inhabitants of a planet called Serpo apparently crashed their aircraft in two separate New Mexico locations. “As for Roswell, it occurred, but not like the story books tell. There were two crash sites. One southwest of Corona, New Mexico and the second site at Pelona Peak, south of Datil, New Mexico,” according to the account. All of the beings died except for one, who “was found hiding behind a rock. The entity was given water but declined food. The entity was later transferred to Los Alamos.”

This entity had a working communications device that it used to make contact with its home planet, Serpo, and eventually died in 1952. According to the story, an exchange program was set up some years later:

“[A] meeting date was set for April 1964 near Alamogordo, New Mexico. The Aliens landed and retrieved the bodies of their dead comrades. Information was exchanged. Communication was in English. The aliens had a translation device.

In 1965, we had an exchange program with the aliens. We carefully selected 12 military personnel; ten men and two women. They were trained, vetted and carefully removed from the military system. The 12 were skilled in various specialties.

Near the northern part of the Nevada Test Site, the aliens landed and the 12 Americans left. One entity was left on Earth. The original plan was for our 12 people to stay 10 years and then return to Earth.”

The entire story is outlined in great detail on, with over 70 different entries by various anonymous officials involved with the project. There’s some thoroughly documented scientific data about the supposed planet and how we were able to get there, background information on its inhabitants and their culture, and detailed lists of all the equipment and technology involved with the project. We’ll probably never know whether the story’s true or not, but it’s a fascinating read if you’re into this kind of stuff. There’s even a graphic novel out now, too, although it’s apparently a bit more sensational than the original written accounts.
