Art Bell Interviews the late Colonel Philip J. Corso about Roswell and more

This is a great interview on coast to coast radio that Art Bells gives with the late Colonel Philip J. Corso, How wrote the interesting book 'The Day After Roswell' If you can get time to listen to this real long interview i have added the parts below

The late Colonel Philip J. Corso, a member of President Eisenhower's National Security Council and former head of the Foreign Technology Desk at the U.S. Army's Research & Development department, came forward to reveal his personal stewardship of alien artifacts from the Roswell crash. In his book, The Day After Roswell, he told how he spearheaded the Army's reverse-engineering project that led to today's: integrated circuit chips, fiber optics, and lasers and how he helped to "seed" the Roswell alien technology to giants of American industry.

It is really hard to believe Corso, especially if you have any knowledge of electronics or the history of electronics. Integrated Circuits are made up of transistors, diodes and other components. Diodes are PN junctions, which were discovered in the late 30's by Russell Ohl. One of Ohl's co-workers was Brattain who is the person who built the first transistor (along with 2 others) in 1947. Transistors are basically two diodes connected to each other (PNP or NPN junctions). The transistor was the culmination of research they had been doing during WW2 on purifying Germanium to make diodes for radar systems.

Fiber optics is another claim that Corso takes credit for. The theory for fiber optics was well known before the 20th century even began. John Tyndall described the theory using simple electromagnetic properties. Fiber optics uses the principle of total internal reflection, known for a century before the first experiments in using it for communication. The reason why fiber optics weren't used earlier than the 70's are two-fold. One is that manufacturing it is very hard, you can't have any imperfections in the fiber that is bigger than the wavelength of light. The second is you need to have fairly advanced electronics to be able to decode information travelling at the speed of light.

I could go into detail why lasers are BS too, but it would take too long. The fact that he thinks an alien species would be using transistors and not something more advanced like optoelectronics or something more advanced than that. Even if alien craft had transistors, they would be no more than a few atoms across a piece.

Corso is making himself seem more important than he really is. It doesn't take more than a few seconds of research to realize his assertions are bogus.
