Here’s Jesse Marcel, the Air Force Intelligence Officer who identified the wreckage recovered in Roswell, New Mexico as unknown and possibly Extraterrestrial material.

This photo was taken in the office of General Roger Ramey the day after a press release was issued by the USAF stating a Flying Disc had been recovered.

It’s now famous for the incredulous expression on Jesse Marcels face. He was a decorated Intelligence officer who was being asked to sell the story he had mis-identified some tinfoil, rubber and wood of a weather balloon for materials not of this world.

Check out his story in this 5 minute video and hear Jesse tell it in his own words.

Did a UFO really crash in Roswell?
Or was it just a weather balloon?
