likely was in no way directly involved.
The 'available evidence' probably means ignoring Tesla - who claimed to be
using radio to contact ET s before the official date that radio was
invented, and had plans for an unconventional air craft. Nazis were
developing unconventional craft. The object that crashed in 1947 could have
been an unconventional craft from some unknown group of peoples' development
of alien ideas, with the US already aware of this and trying to develop
along those lines.

Several groups means: 'They' knew what the sort of thing 'they' were looking
Roots of that 'idea' would probably go back to Tesla. And Tesla's roots :

Key word is 'accelerate' NOT 'initialise' . The idea was being worked on
already, and did someone think that information from the 1947 crash would
aid that research?
This report seems to be based on the assumption that the '1947 crash
initiated the transistor research' and then sets out to debunk that clearly
false premise. While ignoring the deeper roots.
>>>>>>In either case, unless the information and dates provided in his bookare incorrect, Corso most likely was in no way directly involved.
Or the other information and dates that it is being compared against are
Cover Up is easy.
