gravity waves and antigravity spacecraftOn February 11, scientists at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), which is jointly run by the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), publicly announced the detection of gravity waves, first predicted by Albert Einstein in his Theory of General Relativity (1915). The scientific discovery supports claims by whistleblowers concerning the existence of gravity wave propulsion (antigravity) technologies secretly studied by the U.S. Navy, in conjunction with Caltech, MIT and other scientific institutions, which date back as far as 1942.

LIGO achieved its scientific feat by studying the collision of two distant black holes, which generated gravity waves that sensitive monitoring equipment could detect through fluctuations in the space time continuum. A press release by Caltech and LIGO announced:

For the first time, scientists have observed ripples in the fabric of spacetime called gravitational waves, arriving at the earth from a cataclysmic event in the distant universe…. Physicists have concluded that the detected gravitational waves were produced during the final fraction of a second of the merger of two black holes to produce a single, more massive spinning black hole.

The power generated by the black holes merging was enormous according to the press release:

About 3 times the mass of the sun was converted into gravitational waves in a fraction of a second—with a peak power output about 50 times that of the whole visible universe.

Caltech astronomers played a key role in conceiving and building the scientific equipment to detect the gravity waves, and have produced a video illustrating how the colliding black holes bend space and time locally, and generated gravity waves that would spread throughout the universe.

While the existence of gravity waves were first demonstrated in the 1970s by Joseph Taylor and colleagues, the February 11 announcement supposedly broke new ground insofar as this was the first time that gravity waves had been scientifically observed and measured.

In this regard, Caltech’s David H. Reitze, executive director of the LIGO Laboratory said:

Our observation of gravitational waves accomplishes an ambitious goal set out over 5 decades ago to directly detect this elusive phenomenon and better understand the universe, and, fittingly, fulfills Einstein’s legacy on the 100th anniversary of his general theory of relativity.

What Reitze is not publicly acknowledging is that some of Caltech’s leading scientists were aware that gravity waves had been earlier detected in Nazi Germany in top secret aerospace projects focused on developing innovative propulsion systems.

According to William Tompkins, who worked for U.S. Navy Intelligence at Naval Air Station, San Diego, from 1942 to 1945, the Navy was receiving debriefings from 28 spies embedded in top secret Nazi aerospace projects. The Navy spies were revealing Germany’s progress in developing flying saucer craft, some of which used gravity waves as a means of propulsion.

In his autobiography, Selected by Extraterrestrials, Tompkins provided documentation revealing that his service mission was to disseminate the results of the Navy Intelligence debriefings to select military facilities and scientific organizations.

Bill Tompkins - Mission Orders

Among the facilities visited by Tompkins was China Lake, where the Navy and Caltech were cooperating in studying the various aerospace technologies under development in Nazi Germany.

On February 12, Tompkins confirmed that among the debriefing packages he delivered to China Lake was information concerning gravity wave propulsion technologies then being studied in Nazi Germany. Tompkins said that the Nazis had multiple underground facilities in Europe where they were at various stages of development in designing and constructing advanced aerospace technologies.

I asked Tompkins whether Caltech was made aware, as far back as 1942, that the Germans were using gravity waves as part of the propulsion system for their space craft. He replied:

I would have to say yes. There were several different propulsions used, and that method was definitely being used…. The diversified methods of propulsion were … numerous and for different purposes. It was staggering to the Admiral [Rick Obatta – head of Naval Intelligence] and one or two of the captains who were in the Admiral’s conference room listening to the Navy operatives discuss the [propulsion] systems.

Tompkins testimony reveals that more than 70 years before Caltech’s February 11 announcement that gravity waves had been scientifically detected. Leading Caltech and MIT scientists, from 1942 to 1945, were aware of the work done by the Nazis in detecting and developing gravity waves as part of the propulsion system for advanced aerospace projects.

The way in which gravity waves are used to propel spacecraft is illustrated by the testimony of another whistleblower, who is also linked with U.S. Navy Intelligence. Bob Lazar says that in 1988, he was recruited to work out of a remote location at Nevada’s Area 51, called S-4, where he studied one out nine flying saucers that were at the highly classified facility.

Lazar provided a W-2 in support of his testimony that listed his employer as the “Department of Naval Intelligence,” which ‘officially’ hasn’t existed since a brief period during World War II. Researchers found that the address on the W-2 was redirected by the U.S. Postal Service to Naval Intelligence Command in Maryland.


Lazar says that the flying saucer he studied used gravity waves powered by an antimatter generator based on element 115. It’s important to note that at the time of his public emergence in 1989, 115 had not yet been discovered. It was over a decade later, in 2003, that an unstable isotope of 115 was first created in a laboratory, and in December 2015 it was officially added to the table of periodic elements as Ununpentium.

Bob Lazar was claiming that a stable isotope of 115 existed, and that it was used for generating gravity waves as he described in an interview with popular Las Vegas news host George Knapp.

Knapp: How is this anti-matter reactor connected to gravity generation that you were talking about earlier?
Lazar: Well, that reactor serves two purposes; it provides a tremendous amount of electrical power, which is almost a by-product. The gravitational wave gets formed at the sphere, and that’s through some action of the 115, and the exact action I don’t think anyone really knows. The wave guide siphons off that gravity wave, and that’s channeled above the top of the disk to the lower part where there are three gravity amplifiers, which amplify and direct that gravity wave….

Lazar went on to describe the capabilities of gravity wave propulsion systems:

Knapp: So you can produce your own gravity. What does that mean? What does that allow you to do?
Lazar: It allows you to do virtually anything. Gravity distorts time and space. By doing that, now you’re into a different mode of travel, where instead of traveling in a linear method — going from Point A to B — now you can distort time and space to where you essentially bring the mountain to Mohammed; you almost bring your destination to you without moving. And since you’re distorting time, all this takes place in between moments of time. It’s such a far-fetched concept!

Lazar’s testimony is very significant since it reveals that in 1988-1989, a branch of U.S. Navy Intelligence was studying gravity wave propulsion systems – more generally known as antigravity – that had been successfully developed in flying saucers located at S-4.

According to yet another whistleblower, a former CIA agent who used the pseudonym ‘Kewper’, four of the flying saucers he saw at S-4 in 1958 were developed in Germany by the Nazis and the mysterious Vril Society.

The disc on the very end was a huge one and Col. Jim said that was a German WWII craft built in 1938 and was jacked up higher on stands because it had a gun emplacement underneath, which he said the Germans called a ‘death ray.’ It was a different shape than the other [two smaller Vril] craft, was dark in color and had a larger top that stood up probably 10 or 12 feet above the saucer. That one had a diameter of about 50 or 60 feet.

Kewper’s testimony helps corroborate claims that the Nazis had successfully developed antigravity technologies for their advanced aerospace programs.

Based on the testimony of Tompkins, Lazar and ‘Kewper’, it can be concluded that in 1942, US Navy Intelligence had begun receiving briefings about the Nazis developing gravity wave propulsion systems, and that several flying saucers of Nazi and other unknown origins were later secretly studied at Area 51’s S-4 facilities.

Consequently, the announcement by Caltech and MIT astronomers claiming that gravity waves were detected for the first time in 2015 is at best incorrect, and, at worst, an attempt to falsify the historical record. The U.S. Navy’s role in gathering intelligence on Nazi Germany’s advanced aerospace projects, which included the development of antigravity propulsion systems, confirms that gravity waves were first detected as far back as 1942, if not earlier, and this was revealed to select scientists at both Caltech and MIT.

Inner Earth Beings are AnunnakiSecret Space Program whistleblower Corey Goode made an astonishing revelation in yesterday’s episode of Cosmic Disclosure in which he described his extensive tour of a massive underground cavern system belonging to an Inner Earth Civilization dating back millions of years. These people of the Inner Earth had helped the Ancient Sumerians rebuild civilization after a minor cataclysm on the surface. In whole or in part, the representatives of the Inner Earth were suggesting they were the Anunnaki, who Zecharia Sitchin described in his famed Earth Chronicles series of books.

This and the previous episode of Cosmic Disclosure have focused on a Goode’s meeting with select members of up to seven ancient Earth civilizations, and his subsequent tour of underground facilities, which took place in September 2015. Goode had earlier released a written report of this meeting on September 23. 

Last week, in the January 26 episode, Goode described key points in this meeting with the representatives, whose civilizations ranged in age from the youngest dating from approximately four ice ages ago, to the oldest enduring a staggering 17-18 million years.

Goode further described their various racial characteristics and pendant amulets (a form of technology), with specific symbols uniquely meaningful to each of the civilizations. In appearance, they seemed to represent all the major racial groups present on the Earth’s surface. The oldest of the civilizations wore a Saturn-like amulet, while the youngest used an Omega symbol.

Detailing a private encounter he had after the meeting with a priestess from the hosting civilization, Goode told of accepting her request to link their minds together, because she wanted to experience a visit he had to a crystal cave while a child participant in the MILAB program that indoctrinated him.

After the “mind meld”, the Priestess, “Kaaree” (Car-ee), offered to give Goode and his companion, Lt. Col. Gonzales (a pseudonym), a tour of three large caverns belonging to the oldest of the inner Earth civilizations.

The first cavern Goode and Gonzalez visited was massive in size, encompassing an area similar in size to the U.S. state of Texas, and it contained a futuristic looking city. Here huge buildings loomed along with, light domes, and people were walking about, with flying saucers and cigar shaped vehicles flying overhead. Remarkably, their craft could easily fly through the cavern walls. Goode’s narration was accompanied by a number of illustrations in this latest Cosmic Disclosure episode.

Next, Goode and Gonzalez were then taken to a large garden-like agricultural area where they viewed crops being grown. The crops could feed an approximate population of millions, according to Goode’s estimate.

Finally, they were taken to a large wildlife sanctuary with birds and other animals. There sky here was pale blue and a large obelisk stood in the center, which had a large energy source above it. This appeared to eminate the famed Vril force that Edward Bulwer Lyton wrote about in his 1871 novel, Vril, The Power of the Coming Race. Goode was told that this particular cavern had been terra-formed.

Towards the end of this tour, led by the priestess Kaaree, she told Goode how her people had helped the ancient Sumerians after a minor cataclysm on the Earth’s surface. Kaaree revealed that the Sumerians had been taught agriculture and writing by the Inner Earth Civilization whose spoken language was a form of Akkadian/Sumerian.

This stands out as a paradigm shifting revelation from Goode given the literature produced by authors such as Zecharia Sitchin. After translating Sumerian cuneiform texts, Sitchin’s interpretation convinced him that the Sumerians were helped in starting their remarkable civilization in 3800 BC by the Anunnaki, highly advanced beings who came from a planet called Nibiru, orbiting in the far reaches of our solar system.

The History Channel’s Ancient Aliens series has widely popularized this view that alien visitors had helped the Sumerians build their civilization. When Goode explained this contradiction to our own historical understanding, Kaaree told him that he would need to visit their ancient library to get the answers he sought.

Goode will cover the library visit in the next episode of Cosmic Disclosure, and soon release the long awaited second installment on his written report of the inner Earth encounter first released on September 23, 2015.

For the moment, it is clear that one of the representatives from the Inner Earth civilization was plainly stating that they had brought civilization to the Sumerians. In addition, Kaaree was suggesting that her people had deceived the Sumerians into believing that they were gods from a planet, real or not, called Nibiru, which had a long period orbit around our sun– 3,600 years according to Sitchin’s translations.

The February 2 episode of Cosmic Disclosure, and next week’s, are likely to be very controversial due to the widely promoted belief that the Anunnaki were ancient aliens who visited the Earth, according to Sitchin’s respected translations. It will be fascinating to learn the perspective of the oldest of the inner Earth Civilizations about the true history of our planet, and what happened in particular with the ancient Sumerians.

At this point, many readers may ask, can Goode’s account be possibly true?

According to my own research and investigation, which I detailed in the book, Insiders Reveal Secret Space Programs and Extraterrestrial Alliances, there is much evidence and documentation to support Goode’s testimony. More recently, another whistleblower has emerged, William Tompkins, who has provided documents in his autobiography, Selected By Extraterrestrials,  that corroborate major elements of Goode’s claims.

Tompkins testimony is especially relevant when it comes to the Germany’s pioneering role in the development of Secret Space Programs, and how they were helped by an alleged extraterrestrial race from Aldebaran that used the Sumerian language. If Goode’s claims are accurate, then the alleged extraterrestrial race may in fact have been an inner Earth civilization masquerading as aliens.

Just as the Sumerians were possibly deceived into believing that the Annunaki were extraterrestrials from Nibiru, so too the Germans may have been deceived into believing that Nordic looking aliens from Alderbaran had made psychic contact. In reality, both the Sumerians and Germans had more likely made contact with one or more of the multiple Inner Earth civilizations that Goode recently encountered in September 2015. In conclusion, Sitchin’s Anunnaki may have a very terrestrial explanation after all!

ETs Prevented Navy Bases on MoonThe U.S. Navy planned to put 10,000 people on the Moon in the early 1970’s as part of a secret lunar bases program that was to be established through the NASA Apollo program. According to William Tompkins, a top aerospace designer who worked for major NASA corporate contractors during the Apollo era, the covert Navy plan came to a crushing end during the Apollo 11 mission when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were met by a fleet of menacing extraterrestrial spacecraft.

Tompkins’ account of what really happened on the Moon is explained in his recently published autobiography, Selected By Extraterrestrials. At the time of the Moon landing, Tompkins worked for TRW, a leading aerospace corporation that built the first NASA satellite, Pioneer 1.

TRW was responsible for a range of critical components used in Apollo spacecraft, and its personnel were in the operations center for Apollo missions. Tompkins was a TRW employee from July 1967 to March 1971, and describes his role in helping design the Launch Operations Center at Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Earlier, during the final two years of his 12 year employment at the Douglas Aviation Company (1950-1963), Tompkins’ innovative designs for planned Apollo missions had greatly impressed Dr. Kurt H. Debus. In July 1962, Debus had become the first Director of NASA’s Launch Operation Center (renamed the Kennedy Space Center after the JFK Assassination), a position he held until his retirement in November 1974.

In 1963, Debus appointed Tompkins to a Working Group for the future Launch Operations Center. The two held many confidential meetings over the future of the Apollo program, and discussed its real mission as part of an ambitious Navy space program called “NOVA” for secretly establishing military garrisons on the Moon, Mars and nearby star systems.

The Apollo Moon landings were only the first stage of an ambitious four stage plan for NOVA. Stage 2 of NOVA was to put 10,000 people on the Moon. Stage 3 was to place bases on Mars and other planetary bodies in the Solar System. Finally, Stage 4 was to place manned Navy bases in 12 adjoining star systems.  

To support his radical claims, Tompkins provided several documents in his autobiography. The first is a 1963 Douglas Aviation Company study of the launch vehicles to be used in the covert NOVA program.

NOVA rocket launches

The second is an April 15, 1963 Memorandum from the Douglas Aviation Company. It confirms Tompkins’ appointment by Dr. Debus to the Launch Operations Center and the designs he was working on for NASA.

Douglas Memo confirming Tompkins on LOC Committee

Tompkins describes what he designed for the Apollo Missions and NOVA:

As Engineering Section Chief, I conceived dozens of missions and spaceships designed for exploratory operations to the planets that orbit our nearest stars. I designed a station to be built on Mars, massive NOVA vehicles and equatorial launching facilities. I also designed multiple 2,000-man military bases for our Moon… I designed the checkout and launch-test systems for the Apollo Moon Saturn V, SIV-1B and reassembly with the command control Moon vehicle, a near complete redesign of the major facilities operations for the entire Launch Control Center. (Selected by Extraterrestrials, p. xix)

During the Apollo 11 Moon landing in July 1969, Tompkins says he was in the NASA Launch Operations Center at Cape Canaveral as part of a large TRW contingent. He states that television cameras from the Apollo Lander provided a live feed of what was being witnessed by Armstrong and Aldrin.

Tompkins explains how Armstrong and Aldrin were met by a fleet of extraterrestrial spaceships that were ominously close to the Apollo Lunar Lander:

The Landing Module (LEM) actually impacted the Moon surface in the Sea of Tranquility Crater, which had tremendous size vehicles parked around part of its rim. When astronaut Neil Armstrong made that First Step for Man on the Moon he looked up to the edge of the crater and said to mission control: “There are other ships here, they are enormous. The public did not hear that statement or see the massive alien starships. Armstrong panned his camera in a 360 degree motional all around the crater and the CIA then classified the information as way above top secret. ” (Selected by Extraterrestrials, p. 418)

Tompkins drew a picture of what he witnessed on the Apollo live feed camera along with other TRW and NASA personnel.

Starships menacing Apollo 11 Mission

How this extraterrestrial action effectively put an end to the covert Navy plan, thereby endings its support for the Apollo program, is described by Tompkins:

The Extraterrestrials put up their “NO TRESPASSING” sign but allowed us to make several other additional Apollo landings to pick up a few rocks and play in the sand. The action of the extraterrestrials stopped our plans to build our manned Naval Base on the Moon. (Selected by Extraterrestrials, p. 428)

What Tompkins claims he saw happen via the NASA live feed of the Moon landing is consistent with HAM radio intercepts of the live feed, and the claims of former NASA employee Otto Bender.

According to Bender, the Apollo 11 astronauts transmitted that they were being watched by large alien vehicles. Bender confirmed that HAM radio operators had indeed intercepted VHF signals transmitted from Apollo 11 to NASA’s Houston headquarters with the following message, which NASA screened from the public:

Mission Control: What’s there ? Mission Control calling Apollo 11.

Apollo 11:  These babies are huge, sir … enormous….Oh, God, you wouldn’t believe it! I’m telling you there are other space craft out there… lined up on the far side of the crater edge… they’re on the moon watching us.

In an August 27, 2012 blog post, Dr Stephen Greer revealed that he spoke with close relatives of both Armstrong and Aldrin who had been told the truth about what the astronauts had seen on the moon:

Close friends and very close family members of both Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin have separately told me that indeed there were numerous, large UFOs around the crater where the Lunar Module landed and that these were seen by both Armstrong and Aldrin. I have also spoken to military officers that have seen the footage of this event – but it has never been made public.

Greer’s testimony is significant since it supports Tompkins’ claim that there was a live video feed recording what Armstrong and Aldrin were seeing.

So why did NASA eventually terminate the Apollo missions if extraterrestrial visitors were there and watching the Earth? The answer according to Armstrong, as relayed by an unnamed Professor at a NASA symposium, is as follows:

Professor: What really happened out there with Apollo 11?

Armstrong: It was incredible … of course, we had always known there was a possibility … the fact is, we were warned off. There was never any questions then of a space station or a moon city.

Professor: How do you mean “warned off”?

Armstrong: I can’t go into details, except to say that their ships were far superior to ours both in size and technology – Boy, where they big! … and menacing …. No, there is no question of a space station.

Professor: But NASA had other missions after Apollo 11?

Armstrong: Naturally – NASA was committed at that time, and couldn’t risk a panic on earth…. But it really was a quick scoop and back again. (Above Top Secret, p. 186)

The unnamed Professor was first quoted by Timothy Good in his ground breaking book, Above Top Secret (1987), and he corroborates Tompkins’ claim that NASA was warned off the moon, and that there were plans to build a “moon city.” The city was in fact planned to be a U.S. Navy base that was part of the NOVA program.

The extraterrestrial occupants of the large star ships intimidating the Apollo 11 mission did not want the U.S. Navy establishing a beachhead for future military bases on the Moon. By preventing the U.S. Navy in moving forward with its plan to put 10,000 people on the Moon using a number of NOVA rocket launchers throughout the 1970’s, the NOVA program effectively came to a crushing end in July 1969.

It would take the U.S. Navy more than a decade before it could complete the construction of its first antigravity space vehicles as part of its Solar Warden program. According to Tompkins and other whistleblowers, the first U.S. Navy space battle groups were deployed in the early 1980’s during the Reagan Administration, thereby establishing a U.S. Navy presence in deep space for the first time.

Navy requested Designs for Cigar Shaped space Carriers

Over a 12 year period beginning in 1951, William Tompkins worked for an above Top Secret think tank within the Douglas Aircraft Company designing kilometer-long antigravity spacecraft covertly requested by the U.S. Navy. Now aged 92, Tompkins has come forward to expose the secret projects he worked on in his newly released autobiography, Selected by Extraterrestrials: My life in the top secret world of UFOs, think-tanks and Nordic secretaries.

Tompkins supports his claims with numerous documents including two designs he completed for space battle cruisers and space carriers that would decades later become the backbone of U.S. Navy Space Battle Groups.

Tompkins was given the job at the “Advanced Design” Douglas think tank, due to exceptional skills he exhibited in his war time service with Navy Intelligence from 1942-1945. Significantly, during his service at San Diego’s Naval Air Station, Tompkins directly participated in intelligence debriefings of Navy agents embedded within Nazi Germany’s most secret aerospace facilities during and immediately after World War II.

In his autobiography, Tompkins describes what the Navy spies had found:

The Navy agents (spies) in Germany discovered what all those “out of this world” aliens gave Hitler: UFOs, antigravity propulsion, beam weapons, extended life and plenty of mind-controlled willing girls programs. The reptilians made a deal with the Third Reich SS giving them this big box full of toys in exchange for letting Hitler enslave the rest of the planet. (pp. 70-71)

Over his four years with Navy Intelligence, Tompkins helped in the covert distribution of data from Nazi Germany’s two distinct secret space programs to Douglas Aircraft Company, along with other select aerospace companies and universities that had the scientific expertise to understand what the Nazis were doing.

When Tompkins joined Douglas Aircraft Company in 1950, it had already formed its Advanced Design think tank to design antigravity space craft. Once Tompkins moved over to Advanced Design in 1951, he was specifically tasked to design a variety of antigravity space vehicles, using his knowledge of Naval Intelligence gathered from Nazi Germany and his own talent for technical detailing.

Tompkins describes his two superiors at the Advanced Design Think Tank:

I reported directly to Dr [Wolfgang] Klemperer and Elmer Wheaton, the V.P. of engineering who wore two hats. He was V.P. of all the classified missile and space-systems programs. Unknown to 99.9%, Wheaton was V.P. of the above top secret compartmentalized extraterrestrial threats research Think Tank, too, sometimes referred to as Advanced Design. (p. 48)

Further, Tompkins relates the covert way in which the Navy went about making design requests to Advanced Design:

After receiving our unsolicited proposal for star ships [the Navy put out a sole source request for a proposal for exploratory star mission vehicles…]. Actually we didn’t even get an RFP (Request for Proposal); it was just slipped in under the floor door to our Advanced Design…. on the envelope it only said: “To Whom it may concern.” [p. 68]

Tompkins says that he approached his work by studying the mission parameters for the requested future space battle groups. He then was able to come up with designs that would allow the Navy to fulfill its future space missions.

Creating the configuration of a Naval Space Battle Group comprising kilometer-long vehicles from the mission parameters he had been given, Tompkins explains:

I redefined a standard Naval space battle group complement, stating that it would consist of one 2.5 kilometer spacecraft carrier, with a two-star on board as flag, three to four 1.4k heavy space cruisers, four to five 1k space destroyers, two 2k space landing assault ships for drop missions, two 2k space logistic support ships, and two 2k space personal transports. (p. 80)

Tompkins writes about two Navy star ship designs completed at the Douglas think tank, and includes the documents in his autobiography:

The figures following show two original drawings of Naval spacecraft carriers and battle cruisers that were visualized in Advanced Design, in 1954, from dozens of alternate configurations. Scale modes of these kilometer-long craft were subsequently made. (p. 67)

The first design is for the 1.4 km battle cruiser.

Naval Spacecraft Battlecruiser

The second design is for the 2.5 km long spacecraft carrier.

Tompkins-Spacecraft Carrier

Tompkins later worked for TRW, General Dynamics and other aerospace companies that were working on different classified aspects of the space battle cruisers and carriers being secretly built by the U.S. Navy. More of this information will be released in future volumes of his autobiographical accounts.

After his initial designs of the space carriers were completed in the early 1960s, Tompkins claims that it took nearly a decade for detailed architectural plans to be developed, enabling official construction to begin. Consequently, building began in the 1970’s and the first operational space carriers were deployed in the 1980’s, under a highly classified space program called Solar Warden.

Tompkins’ claim corroborates the testimony of other secret space program whistleblowers who state that the Solar Warden Program became operational in the 1980’s under President Reagan.

Eventually, there were eight space carrier battle groups that were built for the U.S. Navy in the 1980’s and 1990’s, according to Tompkins.

How credible is Tompkins extraordinary testimony?

passes to enter naval intelligence

To support his claims, Tompkins includes several documents in his autobiography. These include copies of two separate passes he received to enter and leave the San Diego Naval Air Station with up to three packages. These packages contained the alleged secret data provided by the Navy agents that was being distributed by Tompkins to select corporations.

The passes were signed by the head of Naval Intelligence at the Naval Air Station, Admiral Rick Obatta. These documents provide hard evidence that Tompkins was indeed acting as a courier for Naval Intelligence during World War II, as he claimed.

As for what was in the packages that Tompkins was carrying, he has supplied a copy of his mission statement that provides an answer.

Bill Tompkins - Mission Orders
His mission orders confirm that he was authorized to work as a “Disseminator of Aircraft Research and Information.” This is compelling documentary evidence that the packages Tompkins was carrying contained classified Naval intelligence on advanced aircraft designs, which include those developed in Nazi Germany.

In addition to the documents presented in his book, there is further confirmation of Tompkins’ background in advanced aerospace programs. Tompkins employment, at Douglas Aircraft from 1950 to 1963, has been verified by another former Douglas Aircraft Company employee, Dr. Robert Wood.

Dr. Wood worked for 43 years at Douglas Aircraft (which later merged to form McDonnell Douglas), and was able to confirm Tompkins thorough knowledge of senior company officials such as Elmer Wheaton and Dr. Klemperer. Dr. Wood was so impressed with Tompkins detailed testimony that he decided to assist him by becoming the editor of his autobiography.


A March 26, 1941 article in the Evening Outlook newspaper of Santa Monica shows Tompkins explaining his ship models to Navy Captain G.C. Gearing, Commandant of the 11th Naval District in San Diego.

Finally, Tompkins phenomenal design abilities were publicly recognized by Navy officials back in 1941, who made statements to the national press about his highly detailed models of previously classified naval battle groups. This led to Tompkins being recruited into Navy Intelligence in 1942.

The documents that Tompkins has supplied in support of his testimony, confirm that he had the skills, background and employment history to have worked on large antigravity spacecraft that were secretly designed under contract to the U.S. Navy, while he was employed at Douglas Aviation from 1950 to 1963.

Tompkins testimony impressively corroborates the core claims made by Corey Goode and other independent whistleblowers about the secret space programs examined in the book, Insiders Reveal Secret Space Programs and Extraterrestrial Alliances (2015).

After the publication of Selected by Extraterrestrials in December 2015, Tompkins received a copy of Insiders Reveal Secret Space Programs from Dr. Robert Wood. In subsequent phone conversations, Tompkins stated that much of information that he read in Insiders Reveal Secret Space Programs, which is substantially based on disclosures made by Corey Goode, is accurate.

During Tompkins long career with U.S. Navy Intelligence and the aerospace industry, he compiled an impressive collection of documents that substantiate his testimony and background. Some of these can be found in his book, Selected by Extraterrestrials.

According to Tompkins, the U.S. Navy had corporate contractors design kilometer-long antigravity spacecraft in the 1950s to early 1960s, with construction beginning in the 1970s, leading to their deployment in the 1980s. His documentary support of these claims is substantive and compelling.

Tompkins testimony and documents provide powerful evidence that in the 1980’s and 1990’s, the U.S. Navy did indeed covertly deploy eight space carrier battle groups in a top secret space program called Solar Warden.
