Jacques Vallee’s “Trinity: The Best Kept Secret.”


May 7, 2021 Albuquerque, New Mexico – This morning I phoned Jacques Vallee, Ph.D., to ask about the rumors that his new book has been “mysteriously blocked,” that he co-authored with UFO researcher Paola Harris.  The book is entitled The Best Kept Secret: Groundbreaking Research Reveals A New UFO History and was supposed to be released on Amazon.com and other book outlets in the first week of May 2021.

Jacques told me there was no “block,” but that he had decided he needed to correct and update some lab information about the “technological device” or “material” retrieved from a 1945 UFO crash near the Trinity Site where the first American atomic bomb was tested on July 16, 1945.

The world's first atomic bomb test exploded on July 16, 1945, when a plutonium implosion device was tested 210 miles south of Los Alamos, New Mexico, where Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, Ph.D, had secretly developed the bomb under the camouflage of running a “boy's school.”

The world’s first atomic bomb plutonium “gadget”  was detonated precisely at 5:30 AM on a stretch of barren desert at the Alamogordo Bombing Range known as the Jornada del Muerto, a dead man’s journey. 18.6 kilotons of exploding power instantly vaporized the 100-foot-high-tower used to drop the atomic bomb and turned the surrounding asphalt and sand into green glass, known as trinitite. Seconds after the explosion came an enormous blast that carried terrible heat across the desert and knocked observers to the ground.

Physicist Oppenheimer afterward used a line from the Hindu holy text, the Bhagavad-Gita to express how he felt: “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”

DoD:  “The Trinity site is now part of the White Sands Missile Range and is owned by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). Ground zero is marked by an obelisk made of black lava rock, with an attached commemorative sign. A slightly depressed area several hundred yards across surrounds the monument, indicating where the blast scoured the ground. Only a few pieces of the green glass, trinitite, remain in a protected enclosure. The remnants of the base camp where some 200 scientists, soldiers, and technicians took up temporary residence during the summer of 1945 is about ten miles southwest of ground zero. The Trinity site is currently opened to the public by the National Park Service twice a year.”

Breakthrough Research Reveals the Earliest
Evidence of US Government’s UFO Recovery

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 6, 2021 — Hard evidence has existed since 1945 for the actual recovery of unidentified flying craft in the United States, according to a new research book, TRINITY: The Best-Kept Secret (June 1, 2021, available at Amazon) written by two seasoned analysts of the global patterns behind the UFO phenomenon. Italian investigative journalist Paola Leopizzi Harris and French-born information scientist Dr. Jacques F. Vallée have teamed up to uncover the details of a New Mexico crash in 1945, fully two years before the well-known incident at Roswell and the famous sighting by pilot Kenneth Arnold in 1947.

Over several site investigation surveys Harris and Vallée reconstructed the historic observations by three witnesses, two of whom are still living, who described to them the circumstances of the crash, with details of the recovery of a nearly-intact flying vehicle and its occupants by an Army detachment. Combining their long experience in field research around the world, the authors have documented the step-by-step efforts by the military to remove the object, an avocado-shaped craft weighting several tons, from the property where it crash-landed during a storm.

Surprisingly, the literature of the field only includes a few passing mentions about the case, and only one (foreign) TV documentary has mentioned it, but the correlation between the crash of the extraordinary object and the explosion of the first atom bomb at White Sands, less than 20 miles away, has been missed. Harris and Vallée suggest that the correlation is significant for physical, geographic and biological reasons, quite apart from the obvious strategic implications.

The witnesses were able to observe not only the actual crash of the object on their property but every step of the military efforts to lift it and take it away. Fearing retaliation, they remained silent for some 60 years about what they had seen and done over those nine days at the site while the recovery was proceeding. When placed in the context of the history of chemical and physical analysis of retrieved UFO debris–an area where Harris and Vallée have long collaborated—the devices observed by the witnesses raise a number of important scientific questions.

The Honorable Paul Hellyer, former Minister of National Defence of Canada, has stated: “Paola Harris and Jacques Vallée have spent much effort doing field research on location (…) It is now time that their discovery be revealed to the world.” Christopher Mellon, former deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, called the data “fresh reason to believe that our government is concealing physical proof of alien technology. Read the book, and if persuaded, join the millions of other Americans seeking a straight answer.” And Professor Paul Hynek added that the research “reveals a new UFO history.”

Given the most recent discovery of the third witness this book, initially planned and pre-announced as an e-book, has now been re-edited. It is issued in three formats, all of them available through Amazon: the e-book, a trade paperback and a hard-cover version.
