Well, too bad, you can’t. It’s already been funded! Just joking, they still need your money.

There are a lot of aspects of our society where power needs to be given to the people. As a group with the same interests, we should be given the chance to acquire our own information when the powers that be fail to do so. The study of aliens and UFOs is one of the best examples of information being withheld from those who would benefit most.

Since the world governments aren’t too keen on sharing the technology they reverse-engineered from captured UFOs, we stand to win a lot by taking matters into our own hands. This is the exact principle behind the creation of the CubeSat for Disclosure, the world’s first satellite for UFO research. *Ahem* that we know of.

I don’t know how this project managed to slip under our radars but what’s done is done.

At the beginning of 2016, a team of engineers and UFO researchers launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund the creation and launch of a small satellite into low Earth orbit. The Kickstarter reached its goal of raising $10,000 but since the projected cost would be nearly $50,000, the team also started an IndieGoGo campaign which brought them an additional $16,000.

Will this tiny gizmo show us what NASA won’t?

The CubeSat for Disclosure only has one mission but it is of critical importance to all of us: to look for signs of the presence of UFOs. So what determined the team to come up with this idea?

The fact that we’ve been lied to and shamelessly deceived for the past 7 decades:

For the past 70 years, the topic of extraterrestrial intelligent beings and UFO’s has been controversial, if not ridiculed,” the project description reads. “Despite many sightings and events, government, military and media have made a strong attempt to discredit the idea of extraterrestrial “aliens”.

And in the face of their apparent “disbelief” of the topic, the same military and governments have spent huge amounts of money secretly studying these “ridiculous” UFO’s and aliens.”

Ain’t that the truth… So how exactly will this CubeSat support our effort to uncover the truth?

First of all, it will be equipped to detect ionizing radiation. It is a well-known fact that most UFOs create strong electromagnetic fields so whenever one is around compasses and watches stop working, car engines malfunction and most electronic devices become bricks. Have you ever tried filming a UFO from up close? Yeah, that won’t work.

The UFO-hunting satellite will also carry two cameras with parabolic lenses, enabling it to scope its surroundings in 360º view. The cameras will also be using infrared sensors so they can detect changes in temperature, another trademark of UFO presence. If an object suddenly started emitting unusual amounts of radiation, the CubeSat will pick it up.

By the team’s own admission, their intentions are pure.

“We are interested in the BIG questions. Simply put, we are individuals, not tied to any government or corporation, who would like to have the unfiltered truth of what happens; what is happening, in the new frontier of space.”

A lot of rip-offs were carried out through crowdfunding platforms. Scammers used people’s fears, needs and dreams to fulfill their own agendas and make off with suitcases full of money. The Laser Razor, the Zano baby drone and the CrystalWash 2.0 laundry ball are only a few of them. Perhaps the CubeSat for Disclosure will go down in history as another crowdfunding scam but should it succeed in delivering what it promises, the whole world stands to win.

Its triumph could pave the way for other, more complex projects with serious funding, helping us make it on our own in a time when the rulers made it their mission to stop us from doing so.

The launch is scheduled to take place this summer so if the team behind the first citizen funded UFO hunting satellite actually manages to pull it off, we’ll let you know.
