Towards the end of World War II, Nazi Germany was on the cutting edge of technological advancement. They developed rockets and jets far more advanced their predecessors. As a result, many believed the Nazis had acquired and reverse-engineered alien technology. Is there any possible truth to this? If so, what evidence exists?
The arms race between the Allies and Axis powers were like nothing before seen. Both sides were developing new weapons at an astonishing rate. In some cases, a new weapon could go from concept to prototype in a matter of weeks. Conspiracy theorists claim this unprecedented speed of progress is proof that alien technology was used to develop weapons of war.
1937: A Flying Saucer Crashes into the German Countryside
The crash of a UFO in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947 wasn’t the first of it’s kind. In fact, 10 years earlier a disc allegedly crashed in Germany. At the time, Germany was already on its way to the world stage. The German army recovered the crash. When word reached Chancellor Adolf Hitler, he immediately ordered detailed examination of the wreckage. Hitler was a strong believer in mysticism and occultism. He likely would have considered it a technological gift from the gods to ensure Germany’s success.
Although Germany had been working on flying disc technology since the 1920’s, it wasn’t until after the 1937 crash that significant advances in propulsion technology were made. The knowledge gained by studying this wreckage is thought to have given rise to the first flying wing stealth aircraft as well as the infamous Glocke (Bell) device. The Glocke device is the subject of many documentaries and books. Allegedly, it could create inter-dimensional rifts in space-time (see video below).
Alien Technology Discovered in Antarctica
Back in late 2016, US Secretary of State John Kerry visited Antarctica to raise awareness for climate change. Conspiracy theorists however, believe he was there to examine “Nazi UFO bases”. Between 1938 and 1939, the Germans carried out expeditions to Antarctica. This is fact. The official purpose of these expeditions was to scout territory for the German whaling industry. It’s commonly believed however, that the whaling story was a cover up and the expeditions’ true purpose was to build secret German military bases in Antarctica. During these expeditions, the Nazis stumbled onto some ancient alien technology buried among a vast network of tunnels. After the discovery, the Nazi expeditions then built a city-sized base called Base 211 within the tunnels. Some people believe that the base still exists and is currently occupied by either Germans, aliens, or a secret society such as The Illuminati.
Nazi Alien Technology: Is There Any Real Evidence?
Although it’s an interesting concept, solid evidence is scarce. Most eyewitness accounts are unverifiable and the witnesses themselves are dead. There are many satellite images which appear to show odd shapes in Antarctica, but nothing definitive. As much as I want this to be real, I must conclude that it’s likely just conspiracy theory. There simply isn’t enough evidence that Nazi Germany had access to, or reverse-engineered alien technology.
The proof may also be in the pudding as they say. It’s likely that if Hitler and his armies had such advanced technology, they would have won the war. The fact that the Allied powers prevailed weakens the entire theory. There is one exception of course: perhaps the Allied powers also had alien technology and were quicker to successfully reverse-engineer it. Their efficiency might have given them the edge over an otherwise unbeatable Axis powers. After all, an arms race is an arms race regardless of where the technology comes from.
Wrapping up the Nazi Alien Technology Theory
Time has buried any possible proof that Hitler had access to advanced alien weaponry so we may never know the truth. What we do know is that while Germany was in the midst of preparing for a global conflict, they felt it was necessary to use some of their resources to visit Antarctica. There must have been a very good reason for doing so, and whaling just doesn’t seem to cut the mustard.
