NASA Successfully Launches and Recovers a Flying Saucer: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"After several weather delays, NASA successfully launched and recovered a flying saucer into Earth`s atmosphere Saturday to test technology that could be used to land on Mars.


The experiment off the coast of the Hawaiian island of Kauai tested the disc-shaped vehicle and a giant parachute. The parachute did not fully deploy but NASA still deemed the mission a success."

Flying saucers have figured in the figment of the imagination of thousands of UFO true believers, and they have appeared in countless YouTube videos, movies and comic books, but this is the first time a real flying saucer has been witnessed by a human being.

Thank goodness NASA`s flying saucer was recovered, if MUFON investigators had managed to get their hands on it, they would have claimed it was a spaceship from Uranus.  

NASA`s intent wasn`t to build a really cool-looking flying saucer straight out of a science fiction movie; the launch had a serious and practical purpose: To test technology that could be used to land spaceships on Mars.

Eat your heart out UFOlogists, and bow down before a real flying saucer!
