There are several revelations from experts in different fields who not only said that Roswell happened but the crash debris were tested by select engineers and scientists. John McLaughlin, President of the Silicon Valley Historical Association said that his father, Captain Robert B. McLaughlin tested the uncanny material from the 1947 crash, which he described as “indestructible.”
A very well-known UFO researcher Anthony Bragalia has done incredible research in bringing US Navy captain Robert McLaughlin’s story to the public. Bragalia contatced Capt. McLaughlin’s son John, who said that his father confessed his involvement with the uncanny metal-like material that he was asked to test, which had been before he passed away in 2000.
Anthony Bragalia has long investigated the UFO phenomenon. He found the scientists who were involved in the study of the “memory metal” debris from the Roswell crash. His work was featured in books including Witness to Roswell, Inside the Real Area 51,
and The Children of Roswell.
There might not be enough information on Captain McLaughlin but he maintained his interest in the unidentified aerial phenomena. In March 1950, he wrote an article for the “True Magazine,” which revealed how a group of Navy men and scientists tracked a flying disk with a precision instrument and told of flights he and others witnessed.
Commander Robert Bright McLaughlin was an expert in naval ordnance and guided missiles. He was in charge of the Navy unit assisting in classified projects at the White Sands Proving Ground, Las Cruces, New Mexico. He was also the Chief of the Naval Rocket Unit, rose to the rank of Captain and was a patent-holder with Top Secret clearance.
Bragalia explained that John was astounded to find his father’s name in Frank Edwards’ book “Flying Saucers: Serious Business.” Edwards wrote on page 76 of his book: “There are such difficult cases as the rancher near Roswell, New Mexico, who phoned the Sheriff that a blazing disc-shaped object had passed over his house at low altitude and had crashed and burned on a hillside within view of his house. We were not told, however, why the military cordoned off the area while they inspected the wreckage.” (Source
When John was in his 20s, he asked his father about his involvement in the UFO study and the Roswell crash. His father replied that an unusual event indeed occurred in 1947 while at White Sands.
Capt. McLaughlin had a visit from the Roswell base by an Army Major, who had a very strange piece of material. According to him, it was a metal-like cloth or fabric with a peculiar drape or bend. But the feature that stuck in his mind the most was its sheer toughness and material strength. He recalled to his son the incredible, impenetrable properties of this material as the damndest thing.

The major asked Capt. McLaughlin to penetrate the material, but their military labs did not have the equipment that could punch a hole in it. So, they decided to take it to a workshop in White Sands where a technician repeatedly tried to drill the material.
John stated: “According to my father, they couldn’t even make a scratch.” No doubt, both perplexed and disappointed, the Roswell Army Major took back the material and abruptly left without elaboration.
Bragalia explained that the military found many types of debris (from memory metal to larger, canoe-shaped pieces, to a weird filament-like material, to a metal-like I Beam with embossed ethereal violet hieroglyphic symbols) at the Roswell crash site. Moreover, lieutenant colonel Jesse Marcel, who first broke out Roswell news to the public, spoke of several types of debris including a dull, metal-like, porous fabric-like material with memory properties.
Incredibly, Capt. McLaughlin knew all about project Mogul that was the Air Force’s later explanation for what crashed at the Foster Ranch near Roswell in July 1947. In fact, McLaughlin knew about this project (and therefore that it could not be the cause of the Roswell debris field) back in the 1940s, decades before it was proffered by the government as the cause of the Roswell Incident.
Writing in his blog in September 2008, noted researcher Kevin Randle states that in a letter dated May 12, 1949 to famed astronomer James Van Allen (the Van Allen Belt), Robert McLaughlin tells Van Allen about military meteorologist Charles B. Moore, “who has been head of Project Mogul for the Air Force.” This letter can be seen here.
Bragalia filed a request to the US government about the information on UFO debris they possess under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in 2017 and got a reply from them. He received 150 pages of text from the US Military Intelligence Agency. According to the released information, there was a discussion of a certain material with shape-recovery properties like the “memory metal.” (Source)
“It appears that the retrieved debris exhibits other extraordinary capabilities. In addition to ‘remembering’ their original form when bent or crushed, some of these futuristic materials have the potential to make things invisible, ‘compress’ electromagnetic energy, and even slow down the speed of light. Although much of the reports’ details are redacted, what can be gleaned is that these technologies represent a literal quantum leap beyond the properties of all existing material known to man.”
In the received information, there were several pages discussing some advanced technology connected with nitinol, described as shape recovery alloy. He also noted that the agency’s response contained information on studies of the potential use of nitinol on the human body to improve health.
According to him, the US scientists planned to create phase diagrams for the manufacture of metal with similar properties (memory effect) using ultra-high-purity titanium and nickel.
Bragalia wrote that the reports he received from the DIA mentioned a special kind of highly-engineered material known as a metamaterial, described as “assemblies of multiple elements fashioned from composite materials such as metals and plastics.” Such material cannot be found in natural occurrences. Interestingly, in two months of the Roswell incident, in September 1947, General George Shulgen of Air Intelligence described “the materials of construction” of the flying saucers as potentially being made of “composite or sandwich construction utilizing various combinations of metal and plastics.”
