John Greenewald Jr. has been trying to find the truth about extraterrestrials since he was a kid. He thinks his online "Black Vault" is the biggest UFO database in the world.
Greenewald was obsessed by UFO's since he was a kid and started gathering information. Before he even had a driver's license, Greenewald wrote to the CIA, the NASA, and the Defense Intelligence Agency — requesting government documents about UFO's using a 40-year-old law called the Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA.
He made well over 2000 request and it was worth the effort he says. He gathered about half a million documents from the government.
He says that US government covered up a lot. The biggest cover-up, as you might well expect is area 51 in Nevada. For years the government denied it even existed. It still doesn't appear on any maps. But Greenewald has a letter in his Black Vault from the Department of Energy acknowledging that Area 51 was annexed by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission in 1958, and that the area is now part of Nellis Air Force Base.
He is 99,9% sure that extraterrestrials are out there. He doesn't know if they are actually here though and he has never seen a UFO himself.
Perhaps the mystery itself is enough — as long as it helps pay the rent.
