Dr. Paul Hill:
Paul R. Hill (1909-1990) was a pioneering aeronautical research engineer who spent a lifetime on the cutting edge of research and development for NACA and NASA. After his death his daughter Julie Hill found all his papers and documents while cleaning out his estate and decided to have them published as a book.
After Paul Hill had a UFO sighting in early 1950 he began a 25 year quest, working as an unofficial clearinghouse for NASA, collecting and analyzing sightings' reports for physical properties, propulsion possibilities, dynamics, etc.
Official NASA Policy prevented him from proclaiming his findings that, "UFOs obey, not defy the laws of physics." vindicating his own sighting and thousands of others, he proves that UFO technology is not only explainable, but attainable.

The Hiller VZ 1 Pawnee was the first in series of VTOL aircraft that Dr. Hill helped to design in an attempt to replicate UFOs and their propulsion systems as well as flight characteristics.
NASA and UFOs
Those with an interest in determining what has been learned by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) about UFOs will in most cases be presented with the following press release:
It should be noted that there are very few indications of deep involvement in the Majestic projects on the part of NASA personnel; therefore, that NASA should take a stance very much like that of Project Blue Book is not surprising
List of NASA Employees and Astronauts who believe in UFOs
of the original Mercury Astronauts and the last American to
fly in space alone. On May 15, 1963 he shot into space in a
Mercury capsule for a 22 orbit journey around the world.
During the final orbit, Major Gordon Cooper told the
tracking station at Muchea (near Perth Australia) that he
could see a glowing, greenish object ahead of him quickly
approaching his capsule. The UFO was real and solid, because
it was picked up by Muchea's tracking radar. Cooper's
sighting was reported by the National Broadcast Company,
which was covering the flight step by step; but when Cooper
landed, reporters were told that they would not be allowed
to question him about the UFO sighting.
Donald Slayton, a Mercury astronaut, revealed in an interview he had seen UFOs in 1951: "I was testing a P-51 fighter in Minneapolis when I spotted this object. I was at about 10,000 feet on a nice, bright, sunny afternoon. I thought the object was a kite, then I realized that no kite is gonna fly that high." As I got closer it looked like a weather balloon, grey and about three feet in diameter. But as soon as I got behind the darn thing it didn't look like a balloon anymore. It looked like a saucer, a disk. About the same time, I realized that it was suddenly going away from me - and there I was, running at about 300 miles per hour. I tracked it for a little way, and then all of a sudden the damn thing just took off. It pulled about a 45 degree climbing turn and accelerated and just flat disappeared."
July 17, 1962 Major Robert White reported a UFO during his
fifty-eight-mile high flight of an X-15. Major White
reported: "I have no idea what it could be. It was grayish
in color and about thrity to forty feet away."
Joseph A. Walker
On May 11, 1962 NASA pilot Joseph Walker said that one of his tasks was to detect UFOs during his X-15 flights. He had filmed five or six UFOs during his record breaking fifty-mile-high flight in April, 1962. It was the second time he had filmed UFOs in flight. During a lecture at the Second National Conference on the Peaceful Uses of Space Research in Seattle, Washigton he said: "I don't feel like speculating about them. All I know is what appeared on the film which was developed after the flight." - Joseph Walker To date none of those films has been released to the public for viewing.
Eugene Cernan was commander of Apollo 17. In a Los Angeles Times article in 1973 he said, about UFOs: "...I've been asked (about UFOs) and I've said publicly I thought they (UFOs) were somebody else, some other civilization."
Ed White & James McDivitt
In June 1965, astronauts Ed White (first American to walk in space) and James McDivitt were passing over Hawaii in a Gemini spacecraft when they saw a weird-looking metallic object. The UFO had long arms sticking out of it. McDivitt took pictures with a cine-camera. Those pictures have never been released.
James Lovell and Frank Borman
Lovell: BOGEY AT 10 O'CLOCK HIGH.
Capcom: This is Houston. Say again 7.
Lovell: SAID WE HAVE A BOGEY AT 10 O'CLOCK HIGH.
Capcom: Gemini 7, is that the booster or is that an actual sighting?
Lovell: WE HAVE SEVERAL...ACTUAL SIGHTING.
Capcom: ...Estimated distance or size?
Lovell: WE ALSO HAVE THE BOOSTER IN SIGHT...
Neil Armstrong & Edwin Aldrin
According to the NASA
Astronaut Neil Armstrong, the Aliens have a base on the Moon
and told us in no uncertain terms to get off and stay off
the Moon. According to un-confirmed reports, both Neil
Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin saw UFOs shortly after
that historic landing on the Moon in Apollo 11 on 21 July
1969. I remember hearing one of the astronauts refer to a
"light" in or on a crater during the television
transmission, followed by a request from mission control for
further information. Nothing more was heard. According to a
former NASA employee Otto Binder, unnamed radio hams with
their own VHF receiving facilities that bypassed NASA's
broadcasting outlets picked up the following exchange:
to a Dr. Vladimir Azhazha: "Neil Armstrong relayed the
message to Mission Control that two large, mysterious
objects were watching them after having landed near the moon
module. But this message was never heard by the public -
because NASA censored it."
In 1979 Maurice Chatelain, former chief of NASA
Communications Systems confirmed that Armstrong had indeed
reported seeing two UFOs on the rim of a crater. Chatelain
believes that some UFOs may come from our own solar system,
specifically Titan. "The encounter was common knowledge in
NASA, but nobody has talked about it until now." "...all
Apollo and Gemini flights were followed, both at a distance
and sometimes also quite closely, by space vehicles of
extraterrestrial origin - flying saucers, or UFOs, if you
want to call them by that name. Every time it occurred, the
astronauts informed Mission Control, who then ordered
absolute silence." "I think that Walter Schirra aboard
Mercury 8 was the first of the astronauts to use the code
name 'Santa Claus' to indicate the presence of flying
saucers next to space capsules. However, his announcements
were barely noticed by the general public. It was a little
different when James Lovell on board the Apollo 8 command
module came out from behind the moon and said for everybody
to hear: 'PLEASE BE INFORMED THAT THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS.'
Even though this happened on Christmas Day 1968, many people
sensed a hidden meaning in those words." The rumors persist.
NASA may well be a civilian agency, but many of its programs
are funded by the defence budget and most of the astronauts
are subject to military security regulations. Apart from the
fact that the National Security Agency screens all films and
probably radio communications as well. We have the
statements by Otto Binder, Dr. Garry Henderson and Maurice
Chatelain that the astronauts were under strict orders not
to discuss their sightings. And Gordon Cooper has testified
to a United Nations committee that one of the astronauts
actually witnessed a UFO on the ground. If there is no
secrecy, why has this sighting not been made
