Declassified documents have revealed that the Pentagon spent millions researching subjects which make the X-Files look tame – including wormholes and alternate dimensions.

The Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) released 38 research titles in January after a Freedom of Information Act request.

The research included Warp Drive, Dark Energy, and the Manipulation of Extra Dimensions; Invisibility Cloaking and Traversable Wormholes, Stargates, and Negative Energy.

The research was funded as part of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), by America’s Department of Defense.

UFO expert and former British Ministry of Defence employee Nick Pope said, ‘The DOD and the DIA have previously sought to spin AATIP as being a program looking at ‘foreign advanced aerospace weapon threats’, but the attachment to the DIA’s letter to Congress is difficult to reconcile with this.

‘The ‘products produced’ under the AATIP contract are listed as including reference papers on topics which seem more concerned with space travel.

‘The smoking gun is the paper about the Drake Equation, which is used to estimate the number of civilizations in the universe. This supports the suggestion that AATIP was indeed a UFO program, as has been claimed, and not an aviation program looking at aircraft, drones and missiles.’
