From the ‘X Files’ Dept: Nazi Spaceship Film Reignites UFO Debate About Secret Antarctica Base

Iron-sky-teaser The Finnish sci-fi comedy ‘Iron Sky’ about Nazis has reignited a debate in Germany about Hitler’s development of UFOs. The film revolves around the real-life SS officer Hans Kammler who was said to have made a significant breakthrough in antigravity experiments towards the end of WW2.

Iron Sky shows how the first Nazi spaceships were launched in late 1945 from a secret base built in the Antarctic to found the military base Schwarze Sonne – Black Sun – on the dark side of the Moon.
This base was to to be used to build a powerful invasion fleet and return to take over the Earth once the time was right, in this case 2018.

But a new report out this week in Germany in the magazine PM purports that there is “strong evidence” that a Nazi UFO program was well advanced. Hitler ordered Luftwaffe chief Hermann Goering to develop the super weapon that would change the war.

The PM report quotes eyewitnesses who believe they saw a flying saucer marked with the Iron Cross of the German military flying low over the Thames in 1944. At the time the New York Times wrote about a “mysterious flying disc” with photos of the device seen travelling at extremely high speeds over the high-rise buildings.

The best known of the Nazi UFO projects was the Schriever-Habermohl scheme, named for Rudolf Schriever and Otto Habermohl. Initially a Luftwaffe project, it fell under the auspices of armaments minister Albert Speer before being taken over once again in 1944 by Hans Kammler.

Eyewitnesses captured by the Allies after WW2 claimed to have seen the saucer produced in Prague fly on several occasions in early 1945. Joseph Andreas Epp, an engineer who served as a consultant to the Schriever-Habermohl project, stated 15 prototypes were built in all.
