A sounding balloon or an alien spacecraft. What flying object crashed in New Mexico 66 years ago?

Google celebrates the anniversary with a point and click game.

A controversial story

On July 8, 1947, the public information office of Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) issued a statement referring to the recovery, on a ranch near Roswell, of an unidentified flying object that had crashed to the ground a few days earlier. The news, which immediately caused a stir in the media, was promptly denied by the Air Force which declared that it was a simple balloon used to determine the speed of winds at high altitude, and not a UFO. 1980 entitled The Roswell Incident, edited by Stanton Friedman and William Moore, two American ufologists, brought back the theory of the alien spacecraft: according to the thesis supported here, a UFO would have exploded in the skies of Roswell and its remains would have scattered on the ranch. an investigation by the US Parliament into the case, the Air Force launched an investigation from which it emerged that it would not have been a weather balloon to crash but a sounding balloon belonging to the Mogul Project, a secret operation aimed at monitoring the activities of construction of atomic weapons of the Soviet Union.
Between continuous revelations and denials, the Roswell case has never been definitively clarified, but it has fueled the imagination of screenwriters, writers and directors. And now, even some Google charts.
