For twenty-two years, from 1947 – 1969, the United States Air Force ran a trifecta of UFO research programs known as Projects Sign, Grudge and Blue Book. The public is most familiar with the latter of the three, undoubtedly due to the success of a History Channel series by the same name. However, lesser known to non-UFO-aficionados, is why those studies ended. That was due to a near fifteen-hundred page report generated by what was known as the Condon Committee, which convened from 1966-1968 at the University of Colorado, to evaluate whether the further study of UFOs was worth it. Spoiler alert: they concluded UFOs were not worth the time. However, something strange has happened to that report over the years. A chunk of it went missing within the main government agency that disseminates it.

The report has always been unclassified, and is now distributed online by the U.S. government primarily through the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC), that is, if you know to look there. The Black Vault added what was believed to be the full report in 2018 after a FOIA request yielded the three volume study, however, seventy pages were mysteriously missing from the “complete” copy.

The missing section, arguably, was the most interesting part. According to the Table of Contents for the report, the missing section dealt with UFO sightings by U.S. astronauts.


The Table of Contents reveals that the chapter on UFO sightings by U.S. astronauts consisted of most of the missing pages.

The Missing Pages

An attempt to gain access to the missing pages from DTIC failed, as it appeared the original document as scanned by that agency, did not have the pages within it.

In 1996, John Greenewald, Jr. began researching the secret inner workings of the U.S. Government at the young age of fifteen. He targeted such groups as the CIA, FBI, Pentagon, Air Force, Army, Navy, NSA, DIA, and countless others. Greenewald utilized the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to gain access to thousands of records. He accumulated an astonishing number of documents on topics related to UFOs, the JFK Assassination, chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, and top secret aircraft. Time elapsed, and Greenewald's online archive became known globally as "The Black Vault." His teenage project turned into the largest private online collection anywhere in the world, totaling nearly 1.5 million pages of material. At the age of twenty-one, Greenewald published his first book, Beyond UFO Secrecy, in 2002. It was later put into a second expanded edition, and was re-published by Galde Press in January, 2008.
