USA: The Orson Welles Radio Broadcast. H. G. Wells novel, War of the Worlds,
was the first story of interplanetary warfare involving Earth. Before his
story, previous tales described peaceful beings visiting Earth, but Wells
aliens came with weapons and were ready to take over the Earth as their new
home. These aliens, who came from Mars, had so much power that humans could not
stand a chance against them (in the end a type of bacteria finally kills the
aliens). As a direct result of this novel, people began to believe that that
any alien invasion would mean the termination of mankind. Orson Welles with his
Mercury Theatre on the Air broadcasted their version of Wells novel on
Halloween night, 1938. It began at 8 p.m., and even before the broadcast was
through, millions of people were frightened to the point that they cried,
prayed, tried to rescue loved ones, and called upon ambulances and police.
There was nationwide panic like never before. The people perceived this play as
being reality because at the time radio was their most reliable source of news,
and everything was portrayed so realistically. Also some of the specific places
described, for example, street names, were real for many people. From this
intense reaction, we can conclude that at this time in history, our culture
believed that extraterrestrial life exists, and that aliens are capable of
travelling to Earth by UFOs to invade our planet.

about a UFO crash site story which occurred in July 1941 outside of Cape
Giradeau. The Cape Giradeau police department and some military personnel were
at what they thought was a plane crash site, but Rev. Hoffman said it obviously
was not a plane. There was crumpled aluminum like metal debris scattered over
the area and an object that was disc shaped. There were three humanoid bodies,
child-like with large heads, big black eyes, no nose, slit for a mouth, and a
form fitting uniform covered with debris. The MJ-12 cited this Missouri Ozarks
1941 UFO crash site story along with the 3 Roswell 1947 crash sites as recovered
exhibits deemed extraterrestrial.
