What you believe about Roswell and that incident hinges on whether or not you believe we are alone in the universe. So - do you believe we are alone?? We discover planets capable of shorting life fairly frequently, but does that mean there are aliens out there?
As a lifelong fan of science fiction, starting with the 1956 classic film Forbidden Planet, I choose to believe we are not alone. I can offer no proof in support of my belief buy I choose to believe.
The official government position on the Roswell incident is that it was simply the crash of a weather balloon, nothing more. Those alien bodies? They never existed.
Of course a huge science fiction industry has emerged. There are the benevolent aliens here to he and warn us - 1951s The Day the Earth Stood Still to the not so benevolent aliens in the Aliens series and another classic, John Carpenter's The Thing (1982) as well as many others
Whatever you believe, there isn't much better than a good movie,
Popcorn and good company
