An interesting and important comment that was posted in response to this story about ET contact (attached below) should help us in correctly determining if this "is a hoax, leg pull or the real McCoy". Have we made contact with ETs in recent times? Yes, according to information revealed by government insiders and confirmed by researchers who have uncovered government files establishing that such contacts have taken place. One example of such contacts with ETs in orbit above the Earth in 1954 resulted is the creation of a secret UFO landing site that same year at a Canadian Forces Base/Research Facility in Alberta where the ETs could land and take-off safely and at will without the risk of being shot down by our planes as happened over Washington, D.C. in 1952... ----- Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, November 26, 2011 3:36 As much as I wish that this was actual evidence of extraterrestrial contact, it's not. As has been said already, it's just an exercise made up for the readers of the NSA Technical Journal to hone their cryptography skills. Campaigne even _calls_ it an 'exercise' in the article's second-to-last paragraph! All the stuff about how this was a 'super secret project report' is just a story made up by the author of this article, or whoever his source was. First of all, to say "no other reports" about this so-called project were released is completely false. The previous article, "Extraterrestrial Intelligence", is right there on the same NSA website. [.pdf file] From: http://tinyurl.com/649hp5a "In the most recent issue of the NSA Technical Journal- Vol. XI, No. 1, Mr. Lambros D. Callimahos discussed certain aspects of extraterrestrial intelligence and included several messages *to test the reader's ingenuity*. In the following pages, Dr. H. H. Campaigne offers additional communications from outer space." (Emphasis mine.) Sure, it's not stated outright, but it's pretty obvious from the context that these "additional communications" are just more made-up puzzles for readers to try their hand at solving. If there's still any doubt, just look at Callimahos's article, which is also on the NSA website: [.pdf file] http://tinyurl.com/44mbpdr Callimahos talks about how it is indeed possible that we COULD someday receive transmissions from an alien civilization, what we should probably expect, and how best to approach the problem of understanding them. At one point Callimahos gives hypothetical examples of "what we might expect of an initial communication from outer space", showing how with relatively little information transmitted to us, aliens could convey the basic concepts needed to learn their language and actually communicate complex matters with us. Campaigne's article is simply another example of what an alien transmission might be, as a puzzle for cryptographers to play with. The followup 'Key to the Extraterrestrial Messages' is essentially a bunch of clues, for readers who got stumped. I would be as excited as anyone if genuine proof of alien contact was found, but I can't just stand by and let fellow enthusiasts get misled by something which I know to be fake. ----- Nick Balaskas Listen to 'Strange Days...
