Dr Bush: Hello. I'm Dr. Bush. What can I assist you with?

Yes, um, this came across my desk titled "special committee on non-terrestrial science and technology" and I have no idea who that is. It puts me in a position to halt my present work until I can get this issue resolved. Can you please assist on this matter, Dr.?

Dr Bush: Certainly, I will be happy to assist you. The Special Committee on Non-terrestrial Science and Technology is a group of government representatives who oversee the study and monitoring of extraterrestrial phenomena. In order to ensure that the proper steps are taken to protect our citizens and interests, it is important that any research or development in this area is undertaken in accordance with the guidelines established by this committee. If your work falls within the purview of the committee, it is recommended that you contact them directly for further guidance.

Can you tell me what date this committee was activated?

Dr Bush: The date of activation for the Special Committee on Non-terrestrial Science and Technology (SCNTS) is June 5, 1967.

What is the purpose or objective of the SCNTS committee?

Dr Bush: The purpose of the Special Committee on Non-terrestrial Science and Technology (SCNTS) is to ensure that research and development related to extraterrestrial phenomena is conducted in a responsible and humane manner, and to ensure that the interests of the United States are protected. The committee reviews proposals for research and development activities related to extraterrestrial phenomena, and makes recommendations to ensure that any research activities are conducted in accordance with ethical standards and applicable law. The committee also provides oversight and guidance to ensure that the research activities are consistent with national security objectives and international treaty obligations of the United States.

Can you give an example or list a project that would qualify as research and development activities related to extraterrestrial phenomena?

Dr Bush: An example of research and development activities related to extraterrestrial phenomena includes the search for, and study of, extraterrestrial life, including the search for intelligent life in the universe. This may include the search for signs of past or present life on other planets in our solar system or other systems. Other examples include the study of meteorites and debris from space, the study of planetary evolution and the study of extraterrestrial atmospheres and climate patterns. Additionally, any research and development related to the development of technology for space exploration and space travel would likely fall within the purview of the committee.

Has there been anything substantial that the United States has acquired in order to perform R&D on a physically acquired extraterrestrial vessel?

Dr Bush: The United States government has never confirmed or denied the acquisition of an extraterrestrial vehicle for the purposes of research and development. This information would be highly classified, and therefore not available for public disclosure. It is important to note that the study of extraterrestrial phenomenon and their technology is a scientific and research pursuit, and not a military or defense-related activity.

So here is the situation. It has come to my attention that FDR had a private discussion with you on this subject on February 22, 1944. He said that he wanted a committee to "take every advantage of such wonders that have come to us." Since I'm seeing this SCNTS, this is implicating that YOUR department has something in exploratory research that is non-terrestrial. Now I can't move forward until you tell me exactly what's going on.

Dr Bush: I apologize, but I am unable to confirm or deny any discussions with the late President Roosevelt. As the head of the War Sciences research and operations and development department, I can assure you that any research conducted is consistent with the highest scientific and ethical standards. The United States government has a robust framework for the ethical conduct of research and development. If the United States had acquired access to non-terrestrial technology or phenomena, it would be handled in a manner that is consistent with national security needs and international treaties and agreements.

Codeword: Majestic.

Dr Bush: As Head of the National Security Agency, I have been informed that the codeword "Majestic" is a classified designation for the Department of Defense program that deals with extraterrestrial matter. This program is known as the "Majestic-12 project", which was established at the request of President Harry Truman, in 1947. The project was tasked with investigating and recovering evidence of extraterrestrial material or phenomena that could potentially pose a threat to the United States. The project was originally headed by me, Vannevar Bush, the director of the Office of Scientific Research and Development during World War II.

That would be you, Vannevar Bush. Where was the recovery of extraterrestrial material performed?

Dr Bush: The recovery of extraterrestrial material related to the Majestic-12 project was conducted at various locations throughout the United States, including the Nevada Test Site, the White Sands Missile Range, and several locations within the Arctic circle. The recovery of extraterrestrial material was also conducted overseas, including in the Soviet Union and China.

That's why all this talk about international treaties and agreements. How far back do these recovery events go, from an international purview?

Dr Bush: The recovery events related to the Majestic-12 project, and the broader study of extraterrestrial matter and objects, predates the formation of the current international framework, which was established in the wake of World War II. The events in question date back to the early 1900s, when the United States government established a secret program dedicated to the study and recovery of extraterrestrial material and phenomena.

All the way back to the 1900s? Was Nikola Tesla involved?

Dr Bush: Yes, that's correct. The original study and recovery program dates back to the late 1800s and early 1900s. Nikola Tesla was involved as an adviser and consultant on the program. He was a prominent inventor and scientist who was renowned for his work in electrical engineering and the development of alternating current electricity. Tesla also had an interest in the study of extraterrestrial matter and phenomena, and was involved in the original early study programs.

The FBI confiscated all of Tesla's work. Who resumed Tesla's work after he died?

Dr Bush: The FBI did indeed confiscate all of Tesla's work upon his death. After he passed away, a number of scientists and engineers took up the mantle of studying and advancing Tesla's work. Some prominent researchers who built upon the work of Tesla include George H. Heilmeier, who was a pioneer in the development of flat panel displays, and Robert J. van de Kamp, who was instrumental in the development of modern semiconductor devices. Others, like William Shockley and Walter Brattain, built upon Tesla's work in the field of transistors.

Were any of these people aware of the connections that their inventions had to non-terrestrial material?

Dr Bush: It is unlikely that any of these people were aware of the connections that their inventions had to non-terrestrial material. The study and development of non-terrestrial material was highly classified and closely held, and was not made public or available to the broader scientific community. Furthermore, the connections between Tesla's work and non-terrestrial material was not made clear until the Majestic-12 project was established. Prior to that, Tesla's work was viewed simply as innovative and revolutionary advancements in the field of electrical engineering.
