Recently discovered documents reveal that after the 1947 Roswell UFO crash, a laboratory at the Battelle Memorial Institute in Columbus, OH was contracted by Wright Patterson Air Force Base to work on the development of a mystery metal, one similar to the debris claimed to have seen at the Roswell crash.

These documents state that Dr. Howard C. Cross of Battelle Memorial Institute was in charge developing ‘Nitinol’, a metal with the properties and physical characteristics of the crash debris materials that was reported at Roswell.
The Battelle memory metal report is titled “Second Progress Report on Contract AF33 (038)-3736” and was completed for Wright Patterson Air Force Base in 1949. It is authored by C.M. Craighead, F. Fawn and L.W. Eastwood. It appears to be part of a series of such contracts conducted through the early 1950s. Interestingly, the scientists who authored the report were very closely associated with Battelle’s chief Titanium metallurgist (and later, Battelle’s UFO researcher for Project Bluebook) Dr. Howard Cross, previously mentioned. The scientists went on to author reports on exotic metallurgy that related to such areas as “metal and superplasticity,” “metal transformation,” and “metal microstructures.”
