On this  day in 1947, a United States Army Air Forces balloon crashed at a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. Following wide initial interest in the crashed "flying disc", the US military stated that it was merely a conventional weather balloon. Interest subsequently waned until the late 1970s, when Ufologists began
promoting a variety of increasingly elaborate
conspiracy theories, claiming
that one or more alien spacecraft had crash-landed and that the
extraterrestrial occupants had been recovered by the military, which then engaged in a cover-
up
.

In the 1990s, the US military published two reports disclosing the true nature
of the crashed object: a nuclear test surveillance balloon from
Project Mogul.

Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson)
(June 1, 1926 – August 4, 1962)

Actress, model, and singer Marilyn Monroe was famous for
playing comic "
blonde bombshell" characters. She became
one of the most popular
sex symbols of the 1950s and early
1960s. Although she was a
top-billed actress for only one
decade, her films grossed $200 million (equivalent to $2
billion in 2018) by the time of
her unexpected death in
1962. More than half a century later, she continues to be
a major
popular culture icon.
