The Defense Intelligence Agency of the United States (DIA) last month responded to researcher Anthony Bragalia's 2017 request for test results from material pulled from the wreckage of UFO crashes.
"They have been able to learn some things about the materials of construction which hold tremendous promise as futuristic materials which will change our lives forever," Bragalia said.
The DIA released reports on a "memory" metal Nitinol, which reforms into its original shape after being folded. Bragalia said some materials mentioned in the reports possess "extraordinary capabilities," including invisibility and slowing down the speed of light.
The memory metal Nitinol struck Bragalia as "curious," given that witnesses to the famous Roswell UFO incident in 1947 report seeing such material in the debris.
Bragalia requested details from the DIA on the materials of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP, another name for UFO), including:
- Physical description of all held material
- Source of origin of all held material
- Circumstance and method of obtainment of all held material
Steven W. Tumiski, the DIA's Chief of Records Management and Information Services, located five documents, totaling 154 pages, in response to Bragalia's request.
"I apologize for the delay in responding to your request," Tumiski wrote to Bragalia. "DIA continues its efforts to eliminate the large backlog of pending [Freedom of Information Act] requests."
"I have determined some portions of five documents must be withheld in part from disclosure. ... DIA has not withheld any reasonably segregable non-exempt portions of the records."
