Act 1



U.S. President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev have an off-the-record conversation

Seoul, South Korea, March 26, 2012.  At the Nuclear Security Summit, U.S. President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medved have an off-the-record conversation in which Obama says he will have more flexibility after the election, and "It's important for him (Vladimir Putin) to give me space."  Some people think it means room to maneuver politically.  But there is an interpretation that he meant literally outer space.  

Government talk about space or space exploration has the implication of alien presence.  It is possible that Russia and America have a secret understanding about their shared roles in outer space.  On December 7, 2012 after an interview, Medvedev made remarks offstage that the President is given a folder that is entirely devoted to the visitors to our planet; the aliens and the human groups that are monitoring them.  After World War II, there was a number of UFO encounters that gave cause to joint cooperation between the U.S. and Russia.  The secret relationship is said to have begun because of the Soviet Union's first documented UFO encounter, referred to as the Russian Roswell.


Kapustan Yar: A Russian fighter shoots down a cigar-shaped UFO

Southern Russia, June 19, 1948.  A UFO is detected making extraordinary maneuvers over a Soviet military installation known as Kapustin Yar.  A Russian fighter jet was sent to intercept it, and launched a missile at the cigar-shaped craft.  The UFO fired a directed energy weapon at the fighter before the fighter's missile shot down the UFO.  The rumors are that at Kapustin Yar, they recovered bodies and the spacecraft itself, and it was kept there for study and reverse engineering at an underground facility.  

The Kapustin Yar UFO incident occurred within a year of the Roswell UFO incident.  The Roswell incident happened near the only military unit in the world that had nuclear weapons, the Roswell 509th Bombing Unit.  Extraterrestrials may have had an interest in the nuclear technologies that were being developed on Earth.  Both the Kapustin Yar and Roswell incidents could have been contact attempts by extraterrestrials because of the development of nuclear weapons.  Such contact could have initiated an era of secret cooperation between the world's two great superpowers.  At Roswell, the recovered aliens were dead, and unable to assist with reverse engineering.  At Kapustin Yar, they got the spacecraft and at least one survivor.  That may have given the Soviets the advantage in the Space Race.  Ancient astronaut theorists say the United States was able to quickly catch up because of what the U.S. and Russia were doing together in secret.

Act 2


July 17, 1975.  The U.S. - Soviet space docking, known as the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, ends the Space Race and starts a new era of cooperation.  Many believe that cooperation began decades earlier, after the Roswell and Kapustin Yar UFO incidents.  Apollo-Soyuz is believed to be a "soft disclosure" of U.S. - Soviet cooperation.  

Moscow, July 1965. A decade before Apollo-Soyuz, scientists studied 25 photos of the far side of the moon from unmanned Russian probe, Zond 3.  Anomalies are seen, including a giant glass dome, and a 20-mile high tower.  The 25 photos are classified in Russia, and sent to NASA, implying cooperation between Russia and United States.  Russia may have discovered structures on the moon, and helped guide the first American moon landing four years later.  Ancient Astronaut theorists believe the Russians journeyed even deeper into space to find evidence of extraterrestrials.


Marina Popovich saying that Phobos 2 was shot down

Baikonur Cosmodrome, July 1988. The Soviets launch two probes to photograph Phobos, a moon of Mars. When attempting a final landing on Phobos, the probe stops transmitting.  The last frame transmitted is of a beam or object disabling the probe, and a cigar-shaped craft.  Russian reports were that Phobos 2 had been shot down.

In 1998 NASA's Mars Global Surveyor satellite photographed a 279 foot long monolith on Phobos.  Ancient Astronaut theorists connect the photo to the Russian findings and theorize that extraterrestrials are guarding Phobos.  Both Russia and the U.S. had become aware of working extraterrestrial technology.  Extraterrestrials could be guiding the U.S. and Soviet space programs to encourage cooperation, and defuse the nuclear arms race.  Another incident involved secret communications between a Russian scientist and his supposed alien ancestors.

Act 3



Konstantin Tsiolkovsky writes the "ideal rocket formula"

Kaluga, Russia, May 1903.  Obscure schoolteacher Konstantin Tsiolkovsky published a paper on rocket science titled "Exploration of Outer Space by Means of Rocket Devices", containing the "ideal rocket equation" that calculates the amount of velocity needed to lift a body into outer space.  Tsiolkovsky's work was used to launch Sputnik 50 years later, and was used by Von Braun and all rocket scientists to follow.  Tsiolkovsky  was self-educated, without access to universities or other research resources.  

Konstantin Tsiolkovsky subscribed to a Russian philosophy known as cosmism, which promoted the idea that humanity has an ancient connection to extraterrestrial beings.  Russian cosmism, which began in the 19th century, holds that our origins are alien, that human civilization is an alien transplant, and that our home is in space.  Tsiolkovsky's writings described extraterrestrial beings sending messages to mankind from the stars, and that he had personally received interplanetary communications.  In 1889, he had a sighting of a cloud in the shape of a perfect cross.  Tsiolkovsky believed in a universe teeming with life that was guiding humanity's evolution, and that he was receiving telepathic messages from extraterrestrials.  Some of his models of an ideal spacecraft resembled descriptions of cigar-shaped UFOs.  These beliefs and writings suggest that Tsiolkovsky was being guided by extraterrestrials, and that they supplied the rocket equation.  


Russian Cosmism: Mankind's destiny is to join extraterrestrial beings in the cosmos

Russia's embrace of cosmism might explain why the Soviet Union's reaction to the Kapustin Yar UFO incident was different than America's reaction to Roswell.  The United States approached the Space Race to achieve technological superiority, to put satellites into orbit , and enabled the development of spy satellites, communication satellites, and intercontinental ballistic missiles.  The Soviet Union seemed more interested in using space travel as a way of realizing an extraterrestrial destiny.  Maybe Russian successes with Sputnik and Yuri Gagarin made the Americans realize the Russians have a philosophical outlook which gives them an inherent advantage.  Maybe the Soviets launching Sputnik was an attempt to directly connect with extraterrestrial beings.  That could have motivated the United States to  partner with Russia.

Act 4



Mikhail Gorbachev announces his resignation

Moscow, Christmas Day, 1991.  Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev resigns and the USSR is dissolved after years of internal conflict and crime.  Despite the turmoil, the Russian space program and the Mir orbiting space station was a huge success, in contrast to the troubled U.S. Shuttle program.  When the Shuttle program ended in 2011, the United States resorted to sending its astronauts to the International Space Station as passengers aboard Russian Soyuz spacecraft, effectively ceding the leadership role in space to Russia.  The partnership between the two rival space programs was a public admission of what had secretly been taking place for decades, proving that the U.S. and Russian space programs would continue working together toward the goal of extraterrestrial contact.  

Russia was now largely controlled by deep-pocketed autocratic politicians like Vladimir Putin who were free of public scrutiny that would force disclosure.  The high level of secrecy in Russia would allow them to handle and secure the more sensitive information.  

In contrast, in the years before the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia's history of extraterrestrial encounters was fully exposed.  The so-called Blue File, 124 pages of UFO cases that went to the KGB was declassified.  The top secret Soviet UFO program known as the SETKA program existed for 13 years, from 1978 to 1991. Researchers are amazed by the few available documented cases from SETKA that have been studied.  

Theorists believe the United States and the Soviet Union have been secretly sharing their information about decades of extraterrestrial contact.  More answers can be found in Russian research that is intended to change the human body to be able to travel the galaxy.

Act 5


Voronezh, Russia, September 27, 1989.  Children playing in a park witness a disc-shaped craft land.  30 other eyewitnesses corroborate their account.  Two beings came out of the craft, a very tall nine to 12 feet mechanical-looking one and a modest-sized one that looked like a robot.  Both were distinguished by very small heads. The taller being pointed an apparatus at a boy who was in shock and froze him.  He was then reactivated before the craft took off.  The number and sincerity of witnesses corroborate the account of the beings as artificial-looking and mechanical.

Extraterrestrial beings could have adopted synthetic bodies better suited for space travel.  Humanity might be forced to do the same in order to travel into deep space.  There is a growing movement in Russia to take the first steps of this transformation.


Some of the 2045 Initiative goals

Moscow, February 2012.  Russian billionaire Dmitry Itskov and over 50 leading scientists start the 2045 Initiative to create technology that would ultimately upload the human brain into a computer by the year 2045. The 2045 Initiative goal is to digitize a human being, download it, transfer it to another source, and allow it to go into space.  The scientists want to make a human being immortal, that can explore the farthest reaches of the universe. 

This ties in with Russian cosmismTsiolkovsky said that he was in contact with extraterrestrial light beings.  We could be catching up with his vision, and by creating avatar humans, we are recreating the extraterrestrials who originally connected with him. The prospect of digitizing a human being for space travel is much more accepted in Russia than in the United States.  Experimenting on a human to transplant a brain into a robot is would take significant time to gain acceptance in the U.S..  The Russian government might do such experiments more readily than the United States.  Russian cosmism and transhumanism means they're trying to do things that Russians already believe in.  A U.S.-Russian partnership would have benefits for space travel.  Humanity, led by the United States and Russia, could be poised to explore deep space, and also create a military space force.

Act 6



President Donald Trump calls on the Pentagon to create a Space Force

The White House, June 18, 2018.  President Donald Trump calls on the Pentagon to develop a Space Force as the sixth branch of the military.  The announcement is followed by plans for President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin to have a private, closed-door meeting the following month.  Cooperation is the only way to achieve mutual defense of the planet Earth if both nations were aware of a potentially hostile extraterrestrial presence.  There may have been long line of secret communications between the world leaders prior to this latest private meeting between Trump and Putin .  

The creation of the space force may show that there's been an escalation, since  a force of any kind is created to deal with a threat.  Our civilization is beginning to send probes and maybe soon people throughout the solar system, even into deep space.  It's possible the space force could be set up to deal with a threat within the solar system.  

Ancient astronaut theorists believe the U.S.-Russia relationship in space is the result of an agenda by an extraterrestrial intelligence that believes that the two nations have complementary strengths, and that space exploration is mankind's need to fulfill its destiny.  The Space Race has bound Russia and America together as nations racing alongside each other.  The Space Race was actually secret cooperation, which is later coming to fruition for the defense of Earth.  Ancient astronaut theorists believe the human journey into space will be aided by alien visitors who see our planet as eager, cooperative explorers.
