According to a UCLA engineering alumnus, in 1993 a fellow alumnus, who happened to run one of the most advanced and secretive aircraft development organizations in the world, says the key to the technology that will allow us to travel to the stars, without taking a lifetime to get there, lies in ESP. Ben Rich was the director of Lockheed’s Skunk Works from 1975 to 1991. Skunk Works is a division of Lockheed Martin that develops super high-tech aircraft, and is responsible for developing the U-2, the SR-71 Blackbird, the F-117 Nighthawk stealth bomber, and the F-22 Raptor.
In the interview above with Open Minds, Jan Harzan, the director of the Mutual UFO Network, told us about a presentation by Ben Rich himself he attended in which he feels Rich shared some amazing insight. Like Rich, Harzan received an engineering degree from UCLA. In 1993, Harzan received an invitation from the alumni association to attend a talk by Rich at the alumni center.
Harzan attended the lecture with his friend Tom Keller, who is also an engineering alumnus of UCLA and shares Harzan’s interest in UFOs. Keller wrote a book on the topic titled, The Total Novice’s Guide to UFOs, which was published in 2010. Harzan estimates there were about 200 engineers in attendance.
Rich’s presentation consisted of a slide presentation outlining his 40 years with Skunk Works. The last aircraft he discussed was the F-117 (shown below) which was developed in the early 80s, but was not revealed to the public until the late 80s. Rich alluded to more advanced technologies which have been developed since the F-117 but still remain secret.
Harzan says, “He intimated that there was a lot of other stuff going on that he could not talk about.” It was here that Harzan says things began to get really interesting. Harzan told us, “He ended his talk with a black disk zipping out into outer space, and he ended it with these words: ‘We now have the technology to take ET home.’”
Harzan says after this statement the crowd laughed, but he and Keller were shocked. He says, “Tom and I just looked at each other, ‘Did he really just say that, and are these people really not getting that what he is saying is real?’”
After the lecture, Harzan says 20 or so engineers gathered up around Rich to ask more questions. One lady asked about the technology to take ET home, but Rich sort of ignored the question. However, after being pressed by a couple of the other attendees, Rich asked one of the engineers if they thought it was possible to travel to the stars.
The engineer replied, “I don’t know, it would just take a long time to get there.” To which Rich responded that it would not. He told the group, “We found an error in the equations and we now know how to travel to the stars, and it won’t take us a lifetime to do it.”
Harzan says Rich did not say what equations he was referring to, but Harzan assumes they are what are known as Maxwell’s equations. However, he admits that this is just a guess.

Finally, Rich excused himself and began walking towards the door. Harzan called to Rich to ask him one last question. He told Rich, “I have a real interest in the propulsion you are talking about that gets us to the stars. Can you tell me how it works?”
Harzan says Rich stopped and looked at him, then asked Harzan if he knew how ESP worked. Jan says he was taken aback by the question and responded, “I don’t know, all points in space and time are connected?” Rich replied, “That’s how it works.” Then he turned around and walked away.
Harzan doesn’t know if he gave the answer Rich was looking for, or if Rich was simply referring to ESP as being the key to how the technology works, but he does believe there is something to Rich’s response.
Harzan says he feels he left the presentation with three very important clues:
1. We have the technology to take ET home.
2. There is an error in the equations…
3. The way ESP works is the same way that this technology works.
So there you have it. All that is left up to us is to go figure it out.”
The prospect of interstellar space travel is something humans have been thinking about since the very first known human written records dating back around 6,000 years ago to the ancient Sumerian Cuneiform tablets. In a post titled The Annunaki and Humanity’s Forbidden History Are Now Being Investigated, it says the following:
"According to Zecharia Sitchin’s translation of the ancient Sumerian Sanskrit clay tablets, the ancient tablets say that when the Annunaki first came to earth millennia ago, at first, Enki and Ninmah (two of the leaders) designed beings with formidable strength and size that worked for the Annunaki on here on Earth, helping them to extract gold to take him. As perfect as this sounds, their creation had one major flow – they couldn’t reproduce themselves, and so the so called “Gods” had to continuously make more of them to keep the mining process up and running at the desired capacity.
Those who subscribe to Sitchin’s translation, and I should probably mention that there are many who don’t, claim that this was the point the Annunaki used their technology to alter our genetic make-up, and it was at that moment that we became “modern man.” What’s interesting, is that earlier today, in a post titled Scientists Discover that Human DNA Bears a Message from Extraterrestrials, I reported on a new science known as “Biological SETI.” The premise behind the science is that if mankind is looking for communication with aliens, we should look no further than hidden within our own DNA. The theory is that DNA is one of the most durable constructs in the universe, so if alien life were tying to give us a message, they likely would have done so long ago by coding it into our genes."
As far as “figuring it out,” the good news is there is no shortage of people trying to do just that. Perhaps the single biggest collection of people trying to “figure it out,” other than people who work in the highest levels of black ops for the government, can be found at “The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure.” The project is no small ordeal, but don’t expect to hear about it in the media. Since the media is owned by the global elite, as are many of mankind’s best kept secrets, they make the press remains in almost total blackout of the conferences.
The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure was an unprecedented event. Researchers, activists, and military witnesses representing ten countries gave testimony in Washington, DC to six former members of the United States Congress about events and evidence indicating an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. With over thirty hours of testimony from forty witnesses over five days, the event was the most concentrated body of evidence regarding the extraterrestrial subject ever presented to the press and the general public at one time.
AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE VIDEO BELOW, THE HEARINGS ARE VERY REAL, WELL FUNDED, AND ATTRACT SOME OF THE FIELD'S BRIGHTEST MINDS.
THIS SHOULD GET YOUR ATTENTION ENOUGH FOR US TO PROCEED!
In many of my posts, I often talk about how it is alleged that the most secret government/military programs within the Department of Defense and DARPA are between 50-80 years ahead of private sector technology we know about today. Looking at pictures of the F-117 (shown above) which was developed in the early 80s, that’s not hard to believe. Those ultra modern looking aircraft look like they could have come out of our Top Secret programs THIS year, but they’re actually 30 years old, and they were made made long before we had the Internet or the computing power we do today.
People looking for further substantiation that the government is far ahead of us regarding technological developments will no doubt find the following Teleportation Physics Study, put together by the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) and can be found here, absolutely riveting. If you want to cut to the quick, start reading at page 55.
So, has mankind actually “figured out” how to get ET home as Ben Rich said? Is Interstellar travel really possible? An awful lot of evidence suggests yes, but, how would an interstellar rocket-ship work? Perhaps we already know? Is the answer through ESP like Ben Rich suggested? The engineers in charge of the most advanced technology the U.S. military has have both gave deathbed confessions claiming the U.S. can already traverse the stars, but the technology to do so is buried so deep within black ops, that most humans won’t see it in our lifetime. More on those deathbed interviews and other stories about Area 51 can be found in the following posts:
On a recent episode of Space Time, Matt talks options for interstellar travel – from traditional rocket fuel to antimatter drives, could we travel to other star systems? Watch this episode of Space Time to find out, then check out the the 4 ways intelligent extraterrestrials might be able to traverse the universe according to Humans Are Free in the article below.
“There is another way, whether it’s wormholes, or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re [extraterrestrials] here shows us that they found a way.” (source) – Jack Kasher, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of Physics, University of Nebraska
Thanks to the official disclosure of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) by dozens of countries which details encounters with UFOs, more questions are being asked.
It seems logical, how are people supposed to respond to the fact that these objects are commonly tracked on radar by military agencies, visually confirmed by the pilots sent out to investigate them, and perform maneuvers that defy our current understanding of physics?
It wasn’t too long ago that the existence of ‘UFOs’ was considered nonsense, but now that their existence again, has been ‘officially’ verified in the ‘mainstream,’ the question is now shifting to, “What are they?”
As you can see from the quote above, Dr. Jack Kasher believes ‘they’ are extraterrestrial craft, and he is joined by hundreds of other scientists, academicians, high ranking military people, and politicians who share the same opinion.
“There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been monitoring us for a very long time.” (source) – Dr. Brian O’Leary, Former NASA Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor

Apart from wondering what.who exactly these beings are, people are also asking how they got here. Below are some possible explanations, but a civilization so advanced as to visit us probably has methods that we cannot yet comprehend.
1. The Alcubierre Drive
The idea behind the Alcubierre Drive is to basically place a craft within a space that is moving faster than the speed of light.
Therefore the craft itself does not have to travel at the speed of light from its own type of propulsion system. It’s easier to understand if you think in terms of a flat escalator in an airport.
The escalator moves faster than you are walking! In this case, the space encompassing the ship would be moving faster than the ship could fly, keeping all the matter of the ship intact. Therefore, we can move faster than light in a massless cloud of space-time.
The Alcubierre Drive is based on Einstein’s field equations, and it suggests that a spacecraft could achieve faster-than-light travel. Rather than exceed the speed of light alone in a craft, a spacecraft would leap long distances by contracting space in front of it and expanding space behind it. This would result in faster than light travel (source).
Physicist Miguel Alcubierre was the first (that we know of) to identify this possibility. He described it as remaining still on a flat piece of space-time inside a warp bubble that was made to move at “superluminal” (faster than light) velocity.
We must not forget that space-time can be warped and distorted, it can be moved. But what about moving sections of space-time which are created by expanding space-time behind the ship, and by contracting space-time in front of the ship?
A similar concept was also recently illustrated by Mathematician James Hill and Barry Cox at the University of Adelaide. They published a paper in the journal proceedings of the Royal Society A: Mathematical and Physical Sciences (source).
“By creating a ‘warp bubble’ that expands space on one side of a spaceship and contracts it on the other, the spaceship will be pushed away from the Earth and pulled towards a distant star by space-time itself.” – Dr. Alcubierre (source)
2. Quantum Entanglement: All Points In Space Are Connected
You can view a visual demonstration/basic explanation of quantum entanglement here. Einstein himself could not wrap his head around it and referred to it as “spooky action at a distance.” The phenomenon was recently confirmed by the Griffith University’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics, you can read more about that story here.
Quantum entanglement suggests that space is just the construct that gives the illusion of separation.
As demonstrated in the video linked above, if you take two particles and put one of them on the opposite side of the universe, the moment you do something to one of them the same reaction occurs instantaneously in the other one.
This suggests that either the pieces of matter are “entangled” or connected, or that information is traveling much faster than the speed of light.
So, if all points in space are connected, perhaps this could provide some insight into traveling to what we perceive to be the far reaches of the universe.
Ben Rich, the second director of Lockheed Skunkwork’s from 1975-1991, also known as the Father of Stealth, made several shocking open statements about the reality of UFOs and extraterrestrials and how they are getting here.
“We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do it. There are two types of UFOs, ones that we build and ones that ‘they’ build.”
When Rich was asked how UFO propulsion worked, he said, “Let me ask you. How does ESP work?” The questioner responded with, “All points in time and space are connected?” Rich then said, “That’s how it works!”
Another hard hitting statement related to this topic:
“It is ironic that the U.S. would begin a devastating war, allegedly in search of weapons of mass destruction when the most worrisome developments in this field are occurring in your own backyard.
“It is ironic that the U.S. should be fighting monstrously expensive wars allegedly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on projects which both congress and the commander in chief no nothing about.” – Former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer
Wormholes are passages through space-time that would allow one to create ‘shortcuts’ through space in order to travel long distances. They are predicted by the general Theory of Relativity, and as of now still lie within the realm of theoretical physics.
In 1935, Einstein referred to these as “bridges” through space-time, again, connecting two different points in space-time to create a shortcut. It’s also important to mention that the existence of these wormholes has been mathematically predicted, but are still considered theoretical.
A paper that was recently published in the Annals of physics offers mathematical evidence that a massive black hole in our galaxy is actually a wormhole. If this is true, it should be possible for humans to navigate it.
“Our result is very important because it confirms the possible existence of wormholes in most of the spiral galaxies.” (source)
If we are being visited, perhaps wormholes are one of many possible means by which it’s happening.
“It’s important to note that the human race is still in its adolescence, perhaps there are new discoveries to be made for “those who can remove some of truth’s protective layers.” – Neil Armstrong (source)
4. Bending the space/time fabric from B to A
We know that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, so in our universe we've always assumed that the fastest way from point A to point B was to travel in a straight line between the two points, at the speed of light.
When you're distorting space/time and you have the ability of generating an intense gravitational field, then the fastest way from point A to point B is to distort, or warp, or bend the space/time between points A and B, bringing points A and B closer together. The more intense the gravitational field, the greater the distortion of space/time and the shorter the distance between points A and B.
Space/time is an 'entity' and one of it's properties is that it can be distorted or bent by a gravitational field. The gravitational field we use to bend or warp space-time propagates at 7.46hz at a one micron bandwidth. The amplitude of this wave and simultaneous triangular lensing are the main variables used to distort space-time.
We know that gravity bends or distorts space/time and light by virtue of the fact that we're able to see stars which we know should be blocked from our view by the sun. Once the space/time of the destination point has been warped or bent towards the source, the craft generating the source makes the small move into that space/time.
The great benefit of generating an intense gravitational field is that you can not only turn it on, you can turn it off. When the gravity amplifiers are "shut-off", this results in the craft now "existing" in the target space/time location. In this manner, we can travel great distances with little linear movement and this is how space/time distortion translates into reduced distance.
That's how it's possible to cross the vast expanses of space required for interstellar travel without exceeding the speed of light and without traveling in a linear mode. And, up until this point in time, great mass such as a star, planet, or moon was the only source of a discernible gravitational field that we were aware of.
Just as the gravitational field around great mass, such as a planet, distorts space and time, any gravitational field, whether naturally occurring or generated, distorts space and time in a similar manner. — Bob Lazar's website
Physicist Bob Lazar
This theory was put forward by Robert "Bob" Lazar, a propulsion engineer who worked for the US Department of Naval Intelligence in the 1980s. Lazar claimed that between 1988 and 1989 he worked on a top secret program of reverse-engineering alien flying saucers in Area 51.
The crafts have allegedly been left behind by grey extraterrestrials (i.e. Zeta Reticulans) after their deal with the US and Russian governments had tragically concluded.
His job was to understand the craft's propulsion system and replicate it with materials and technology available to us.
