In July 1947, something streaked out of the sky, crashing to the ground outside of Roswell, New Mexico, marking over 77 years of ongoing speculation as to what the object was. According to initial information provided to the Roswell Daily Record by the Roswell Army Air Field, the startling headlines claimed that the military had recovered a flying saucer from a nearby ranch.
Overnight, the narrative shifted from a flying saucer to a weather balloon, and over the ensuing years, that explanation evolved into a military high-altitude surveillance program. Seven decades have passed, fueling conspiracy theories that the U.S. government has concealed the possibility that an alien spacecraft and its otherworldly crew were responsible for the 1947 crash.
Through it all, and continuing to this day, the Roswell Daily Record has been there to report the news and to ignite public interest, contributing to over 77 years of fascination with this story. The Roswell Daily Record remains a steadfast presence, presenting both the facts and the speculation.
