Philip James Corso, lieutenant colonel, hero of the Second World War and one of the most influential employees of the P̳e̳n̳t̳a̳g̳o̳n̳, throughout his military career was known as a man of courage and truth.
For several years he worked for the National Security Service. By the nature of his work, Philippe Corso was familiar with the many secrets of the American government.
Since 1961, Philippe Corso worked several times in the secret department of the P̳e̳n̳t̳a̳g̳o̳n̳, which was responsible for the preservation of numerous fragments of the crashed a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ aircraft.

His duties also included the task of preventing the disclosure of secrets associated with the incident at Roswell. One of these secrets, guarded by the American government, is the events associated with the mysterious incident that took place in July 1947.
At this time, Philip Corso was in Roswell as a government inspector and was one of the first to find himself at the crash site of an unidentified object, later identified in secret documents as an “a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ spacecraft”.
The events that he witnessed, Corso described in his book “The Day After Roswell”, which also provides other information gleaned by him from various government documents.
On July 6, 1947, Philippe Corso arrived at the crash site of a mysterious object. In a small depression next to the wreckage of the mysterious apparatus, he discovered a small capsule about one and a half meters long, in which there was a dead a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳.
The aircraft crashed a few kilometers from the American military base number 509, located near Roswell in the headquarters of New Mexico. Philippe Corso became extremely interested in the creature in the capsule, and he began to examine it.
The a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ lay in a viscous light blue liquid that resembled a jelly-like diesel fuel.
“At the first moment it seemed to me that there was a dead child in front of me, but it was not a man, but a strange creature of small size,” Corso recalls.
The creature was barely 1 meter 20 centimeters tall and resembled a man, but had many differences. Hands and feet were very thin. And the hands had only 4 fingers (there was no thumb). On a rather puny body stood out a huge head, which in its shape resembled a light bulb. The chin was barely noticeable.
“Examining the creature, I could not help feeling fear, although I did not quite understand what I should have feared,”- says Philippe Corso. Despite this, Corso was the first to dare to lift the capsule lid and take a closer look at the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳.
The creature’s skin was gray, but Corso believes that it could not have been skin, but some kind of ultra-thin material that was unusually tightly wrapped around the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳’s body.
H̳u̳g̳e̳ almond-shaped eyes, completely devoid of pupils, were located on the head somewhat at an angle and the post converged at a tiny nose. The nose barely protruded from the surface of the face and consisted of nostrils alone.
The a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳’s sunken cheeks could only be seen from the side. Ears resembling human ones were missing from the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳. No eyebrows or any other characteristic of a person was observed on the face.
The unusually small mouth looked more like a small slit and, like the nose, stood out very faintly on the face, all the features of which occupied an insignificant part of the huge skull.
As Philippe Corso recalls, although the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ was dead, there was no noticeable damage to his body: “I could not see a single wound on the body, there was no blood and all parts of the body looked intact.”
In the early 60s, while working at the P̳e̳n̳t̳a̳g̳o̳n̳, Philip Corso came across a report by doctors from the Walter Reed military hospital, who in 1947, shortly after the Roswell incident, performed an autopsy on an a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳.
Having carefully examined the corpse of an a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳, scientists made an unusually important conclusion: the chemical composition of the tissues of an a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ creature, although different from ours, but at the same time, does not contain any elements unknown to modern science.
The report further states that the creature, like humans, has a heart and lungs, but their structure and functioning are significantly different from those of humans.
The heart of an a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ is much larger than a human, and it contracts, according to pathologists, much less frequently. It works in the manner of an ordinary muscle pump and distills liquid, which in its composition resembles lymph, through a rather primitive “circle of blood circulation”.
Based on the large volume of the heart and lungs, the doctors assumed that the creature had a rather weak metabolic rate. In addition, according to physiologists, the body of this a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ has never experienced great physical exertion.
The lungs of the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ creature were also quite large. Their main function was the accumulation of “air” and its gradual consumption. Scientists have compared the work of an a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳’s lungs with how a camel stores water in advance and then uses it as needed. Proceeding from this, the doctors assumed that this creature had little need for “air”, and the opportunity to “breathe” was not often provided.
The a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳’s skeleton was also different from that of a human. The structure of the skeleton was fibrous, and the bones themselves are much thinner than those of the human skeleton.
One of the main differences between humans and the discovered a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳, according to scientists, is the complete absence of a digestive and excretory system in the latter! But the creature had two layers of skin: outer and inner.
The outer skin was a fairly strong protective layer, but at the same time it had great firmness and elasticity. The inner one was unusually thin and had a huge throughput, with the help of which, according to the assumptions of physiologists, the creature was metabolizing and excreting substances.
It is also possible that with the help of such a structure of the skin, an a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ creature supplied the necessary nutrients to the body, since an undeveloped mouth and the absence of a digestive tract make it impossible to feed in a “human” way.
The a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳’s skull was disproportionately large, and its bones, very soft and elastic compared to human ones, resembled rubber in softness.
The a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳’s brain turned out to be much larger than a human and was extremely large for this creature with a delicate and weak structure of the body and skeleton. The brain was divided into four sections, or spheres, the functions of which were difficult to determine.
Philip Corso believes that the US military performed not only a superficial examination and autopsy, but also a detailed study of the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳’s remains, as well as a comprehensive study of the aircraft.
According to Corso, many devices and devices were developed based on the technology of the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ ship, which are still widely used in science and technology to this day.
