Google Doodle: Roswell UFO incident marked 66 years on with interactive illustration of alien crash landing
Google has commemorated the 66th anniversary of the Roswell incident with an interactive Google Doodle showing an alien crash landing on Earth.
The so-called Roswell Incident of 1947 has led to conspiracy theorists claiming the US military had captured an alien after an airborne object crashed onto a ranch in Roswell, New Mexico.
Suspicions of extra-terrestrial life were heightened when a press release seemed to suggest a flying disk had been recovered in the crash by a US army base, prompting theorists to speculate that the military had captured an alien aircraft.
The US Armed Forces has always maintained that debris from the crash of a surveillance balloon belonging to their Mogul programme was the only thing recovered.
The Doodle features an alien which users can direct and control to help it complete a series of tasks.
