Roswell

I was watching a program on T.V. and the topic was Roswell
New Mexico, the famous U.F.O. crash. I think after all these years
and still nothing soild that the story must be just that, a story.
the alien bodies some said they saw were crash test dummies that were dropped from planes for testing parachutes a few years later. When remembering the events people just confused the timeline thinking that that dummies were dead aliens. Also the time required to get to another system would be too long to make space travel realistic. Then again just because our physics says you can't travel beyond the speed of light does not mean a super race wouldn't be able to do it.

It's now well-known what the Roswell "flying disc" crash really was: a test of a secret military project called "Mogul" to listen for nuclear blasts with microphones hung from balloons (earlier I said they were reflectors to confuse radar, but I was misremembering; there were radar reflectors but they were just to track the balloons). Here's a good summary of the whole thing:
