Project Serpo

Over the years there have been many claims of secret contact between extraterrestrial aliens and human governments – or at least agencies of those governments. One of the most well known of these is Project Serpo which is said to have run between 1965 and 1978.

What Is Project Serpo?

The Serpo Project is – allegedly – a secret information exchange programme that began after the famous Roswell incident of 1947.

Despite the controversy over Roswell, many believe that a UFO did indeed crash there – and that alien artefacts and technology were retrieved. Some go further and believe that a live alien being was also recovered from the wreck. Communication was eventually established with the alien and contact made with its home planet – somewhere in the Zeta Reticuli system.

The alien was able to return home and an exchange of information between the two worlds began. The program was initially called Project Crystal Knight and later renamed Project Serpo (the reasons for the name are not clear). This program led eventually to a number of volunteers from the US armed forces visiting the aliens’ home world in 1965. They lived there for some years, most returning home in 1978.

As with all such stories, Project Serpo is a subject of much disagreement. Some believe it is literally true, others that it was nothing but a clever hoax. In the middle are some who believe that it contains elements of the truth that have been accidentally or deliberately warped and exaggerated. One thing we need to remember is that even if the Serpo story itself does turn out to be a hoax, that doesn’t automatically mean that no such exchange has ever taken place.

Assuming that the Serpo exchange project really did exist, is it – or anything similar – still going today? Well, the amount of publicity that it – and Roswell – have received make it unlikely that it continues in the same form. If I was in charge of such a project I would rename and relocate it then leak disinformation under the original name.
