Earth vs. the Flying Saucers

Since biblical times,
man has witnessed and recorded...
in the sky...
...and speculated on the possibilities
of visitors from another world.
Today, from the skies of California,
the fields of Kansas...
...the rice paddies of the Orient,
the air lanes of the world...
...come persistent reports of UFOs,
Unidentified Flying Objects...
...which we have come to know
as flying saucers.
In Dayton, Ohio, the Air Intelligence
gathers data from all over the globe.
Ninety-seven percent of the objects
prove to be of natural origin...
...while three percent still are listed
The Air Force is aware
of the widely held belief...
...that some could be
flying saucers from another planet.
While there is nothing conclusive
in the evidence...
...the probing and digesting
of information about UFOs...
As a result, the Hemispheric Defense
Command in Colorado Springs...
...issued an order:
All military installations
are to fire on sight...
...at any flying objects
But the military wondered...
...whether their scientific know-how
...would be effective in any battle
of the Earth vs. the flying saucers.
July 16. To Internal Security
Progress report from project director
Dr. Russell A. Marvin--
And Mrs. Dr. Marvin, without
whose inspiration and criticism...
...this report couldn't be written.
Married two hours and already
she's claiming community property.
Now that you're married,
you don't have to sneak up on me.
You always had eyes
in the back of your head.
-It's not safe when driving.
I thought intellectual giants were
supposed to be backwards and shy.
My third-grade teacher, Miss Hickey,
said I was a quick study.
You're starting something
you're not going to be able to finish.
Yeah, today, I've got a hot date
with a three-stage rocket.
Now, please, no interruptions.
Because of recent
...it is now possible to realize
an ancient dream:
The exploration of outer space.
To prepare for this stride forward,
we are assembling data...
...on conditions at atmospheric levels
beyond those hitherto explored.
To collect this data, unmanned
observation posts are being sent up...
...in multiple-stage rockets, hundreds
of miles above the Earth's surface.
There, swinging in endless orbits
around our planet...
...will be 12 tiny man-made
satellites, or moons.
They will report to us by radio
the primary information needed...
...to prepare the way
for our ascent into space.
The effects of gravitational loss,
showers of meteoric dust...
...the fierce, undiluted heat of the sun,
the cosmic radiation.
All will be studied and analyzed.
At the present time, we have
launched 10 artificial satellites...
...or birds, as we call them. We--
-Do you hear something?
-I don't hear any--
Russ, it was a saucer?
A flying saucer?
Well, we saw what appeared
to be a flying saucer.
That's all we can say.
We saw it. We heard it, both of us.
What more do we need to know?
Well, we have to have time to think,
to evaluate this...
...before we sound off.
Let-- Let me have a light.
Of course, it wasn't a saucer at all.
I just shake like this all the time.
Carol, I want you to transcribe
these notes for my report.
-But there's one little thing first.
Now that you're married, Dr. Marvin,
the first thing you've got to learn...
...is no more passes at the secretaries
during business hours.Rate this script:0.0 / 0 votes
