The Disclosure Project is a research project working to fully disclose the facts about UFOs, extraterrestrial intelligence, and classified advanced energy and propulsion systems.
It was founded in 1993 by Steven Greer. It is a a nonprofit research project, whose goals are to disclose to the public the government’s alleged knowledge of UFOs, extraterrestrial intelligence, and advanced energy and propulsion systems. The Disclosure Project was founded in an effort to grant amnesty to government whistleblowers willing to violate their security oaths by sharing insider knowledge about UFOs.
It claims to have over 500 government, military, and intelligence community witnesses testifying to their direct, personal, first hand experience with UFOs, ETs, ET technology, and the cover-up that keeps this information secret.
In May 2001, Greer held a press conference at the National Press Club in D.C that featured "20 retired Air Force, Federal Aviation Administration and intelligence officers". According to a 2002 report in the Oregon Daily Emerald, Greer has gathered 120 hours of testimony from various government officials on the topic of UFOs, including astronaut Gordon Cooper and a Brigadier General.
In 2013 Greer co-produced Sirius, a documentary covering his work and theories over extraterrestrial life and government cover-ups. The film was directed by Amardeep Kaleka and narrated by Thomas Jane, and covers Greer's 2006 book Hidden Truth, Forbidden Knowledge. The movie premiered on April 22, 2013 in Los Angeles, California and featured interviews from former officials from the government and military. Sirius also focused heavily on the six-inch human skeleton known as the Atacama skeleton and featured images and a DNA analysis of the skeleton, which Greer believed was proof of alien life. Later genetic evidence of the Atacama skeleton indicated that it was a human child skeleton, with an estimated age of 8 years, and the mother was most probably "an indigenous woman from the Chilean region of South America".
