Wernher von Braun was one of the most important rocket developers and advocates of space travel in the 20th century. An ex-Nazi scientist, he came to the U.S. after the war as part of the “Paperclip” program, and worked for us at the White Sands Proving Ground in New Mexico… It turns out he was there in July, 1947 when a UFO crashed in nearby Roswell.

Dr. Wernher von Braun, center, then Chief of the Guided Missile Development Division at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, discusses a "bottle suit" model with Dr. Heinz Haber, left, an expert on aviation medicine, and Willy Ley, a science writer on rocketry and space exploration.

On the Temas/Exopolitica website, former Space Shuttle commander Clark C. McClelland describes a meeting he had with von Braun, during which he asked him about the Roswell crash.

McClelland writes: “Dr. von Braun explained how he and his associates had been taken to the crash site after most of the military were pulled back. They did a quick analysis of what they found. He told me the craft did not appear to be made of metal as we know metal on earth. He said it seemed to be created from something biological, like skin.

“The recovered bodies were temporarily being kept in a nearby medical tent. They were small, very frail and had large heads. Their eyes were large. Their skin was grayish and reptilian in texture. His inspection of the debris had even him puzzled: very thin, aluminum colored, like silvery chewing gum wrappers, very light and extremely strong. The interior of the craft was nearly bare of equipment, as if the creatures and craft were part of a single unit.”
