  1. Stories of what was found at the Roswell, N.M., UFO crash site tell of unidentifiable metallic materials. Supposedly, the material had memory; it could be twisted or crunched up, but it would bounce back to its original shape with no signs of having been manipulated. The foil-like substance also was inflammable and barely retained any heat after being exposed to fire. In addition, a brown parchment-like material was found to be very tough and small beams were discovered that looked like they were made of balsa wood, but were flexible and inflammable.
