How the U.S. Government Suppressed
the World¹s First Civilian Spacecraft Industry

Michael E. Salla, PhD*


In 1955, Otis T. Carr, a protégé of Nikola Tesla began a highly visible public 
effort to develop a prototype civilian spacecraft that could be mass produced in
kits and sold to the public. If successful, Carr would have developed the 
world¹s first civilian spacecraft and would have revolutionized the aviation 
industry. The vehicle was to be powered by an electric generator drawing 
electrical energy from the environment, and would have produced an antigravity 
effect for propulsion. Carr claimed to have been taught all he knew about 
electromagnetic energy and antigravity principles by the famous Yugoslav 
inventor Nikola Tesla. He had resided in a New York hotel where Carr worked part
time while completing his studies. Tesla had publicly stated in 1915 that he 
knew how to build an antigravity flying vehicle: "My flying machine will have 
neither wings nor propellers. You might see it on the ground, and you would 
never guess that it was a flying machine. Yet it will be able to move at will 
through the air in any direction with perfect safety."[2] Tesla¹s flying vehicle
would be powered by electrical energy drawn from the earth¹s atmosphere and 
stored in special coils. Frustrated by lack of industry support, Tesla revealed 
his radical ideas to the young Carr over a three year period.

Tesla taught Carr how electromagnetic energy could be freely harnessed from the 
abundant electrical energy in the atmosphere. The possibility that electrical 
energy could be freely acquired without need for expensive power plants, 
conductive wires, relay stations, telephone poles and significant power loss, 
which challenged conventional power companies. Tesla was told that his radical 
ideas would not be funded since J.P. Morgan and other industrialists would not 
be able to meter the free electrical energy that could be easily drawn from the 
atmosphere. Indeed, Tesla¹s ideas challenged the foundations of the global 
economy and monetary system.

Inspired by the aging Tesla, Carr set about testing Tesla¹s principles in 1937 
when he began creating model spacecraft.[3] Carr eventually became convinced 
that he could develop a civilian spacecraft that could travel into the upper 
atmosphere, to the moon and even achieve the speed of light. All this could be 
achieved by following Tesla¹s advice of tapping into the electrical energy in 
the atmosphere to power the spacecraft, storing such energy in a special 
³regenerative coil² for interplanetary flights.

Otis Carr claims to build the world¹s first civilian spacecraft

Carr founded a company, OTC Enterprises, Inc, in 1955 in Maryland, and set about
raising necessary funds and skilled personnel for building models. These could 
be tested to validate a full scale prototype. These models ranged in sizes and 
included a six foot version to be tested for proving the feasibility of his 
ideas for a planned 45 foot prototype spacecraft. In November 1959 Carr 
successfully patented his design for a full scale civilian spacecraft he called 
OTC-X1.[4] It had a circular design that made it look like a flying saucer.

In order to gain a patent for his design from a skeptical Patents Office, he 
claimed his OTC-X1 was an amusement device (see figure on left). The 
introduction to his patent claims: ³This invention relates generally to 
implements in amusement devices, and more particularly to an improved amusement 
device of the type where the passengers will receive the impression of riding in
an interplanetary spacecraft.²

In a 1959 radio interview Carr described the various tests conducted for 
developing his prototype civilian spacecraft:

³We plan to build a prototype model as a demonstration device. Now I would like 
to state that certain models have been built by me and tested. Each one has been
airborne. One was lost entirely in space. We had a control system and this one 
didn't function. This has already been done.²[5]

The OTC-X1 would be powered by a number of capacitor like objects Carr called 
"Utrons". In an earlier 1957 interview, Carr described the Utrons as ³a storage 
cell for electrical energy. In operation it generates electricity at the same 
time it puts out electromotive force. This is the central power system for our 
space craft.²[6] The Utrons would supply a series of counter rotating magnets 
the energy they required for overcoming the gravitational field of the Earth. 
Carr described the details of this process as follows:

[W]e have capacitor plates and electro-magnets as a part of this system. Now 
this is counter-rotating, the electro-magnets rotate in one direction and the 
accumulator, the batteries rotate in another. The capacitor plates rotate in 
conjunction with the battery so that we have a clockwise and counter clockwise 
rotation. Now the third system is the cabin that maintains the crew. This does 
not rotate, it is fixed due to the fact the two bodies are rotating clockwise 
and counter clockwise. Therefore the system causes the craft to escape from the 
gravity pull. The craft itself due to this system still has internal gravity 
because it still has the same weight that it had in the beginning.

Carr¹s design would create an entirely new gravitational field inside the craft.
This would effectively create a zero mass environment inside his craft that 
would mean normal laws of inertia would not operate. This zero mass environment 
would enable the spacecraft to achieve light speed velocity. It would also 
enable occupants to withstand tremendous accelerations and changes in directions
without being pulverized by immense g-forces inside the craft. Carr detailed the
intricate electromagnetic propulsion system of his spacecraft in his 1959 patent
(see diagram, above, on left). Carr stated that all electrical power would be 
extracted from the atmosphere and would be stored in sufficient quantities in 
³regenerative coils² to power the craft during interplanetary travel: ³We are 
able here, the first time to our knowledge, to use atmospheric electricity as a 
recharging system. This is done as a part of operational principal of the 

Carr demonstrated a small model in an interview as reported in Fate Magazine:

Otis T. Carr, president of OTC Enterprises, Inc., detailed his claims in an 
interview and demonstration of a crude model of a circular motion machine which 
he said is the principle of a "free energy circular foil" space craft he can 
build, if someone puts up the money. He said the machine can be adapted to 
devices of any size to produce continuous power absolutely free of dissipation. 
Its immediate application, Carr said, would be in a space craft - which would be
able to fly among the planets in controlled flight. It could land or take off as
desired on the earth, the moon or any planet in the earth's solar system, he 

Carr scheduled a test for his six foot model in April 1959 for an audience of 
approximately 400 people in Oklahoma City. Technical difficulties and a sudden 
illness contracted by Carr led to the test being cancelled. An article published
in Fate Magazine described the failed test as follows:

The serious field of UFO's and flying saucer research received a setback at 
Oklahoma City in late April when a highly publicized launching attempt by O.T.C.
Enterprises of Baltimore, Md., resulted in failure. Hundreds of persons had been
invited to Oklahoma City by Otis T. Carr to watch him "launch a six-foot 
prototype model of the O.T.C. X-1, a space craft which works on 'utron' energy."
Those who were there came away disappointed. The flying saucer did not fly.[9]

All that was shown to the public were three dimensional illustrations of his 
design. Carr was nowhere to be found. Long John Nebel, a famous New York radio 
host, located Carr at the nearby Mercy hospital where he had been admitted for 
eight days due to a lung hemorrhage. Mysteriously, Carr had become ill on the 
eve of what should have been a major publicity coup for him. Carr¹s spacecraft 
project was becoming increasingly shrouded in mystery and controversy.

Those present were dissatisfied and some complained that they were not even 
shown the model to be tested:

I don't know what's going on but I feel they never had any intention of trying 
to launch the model. I could not see any plans in sight for the model and, in 
fact, I understand, that a Mr. Maywood Jones presented only what he called 
"three-dimensional illustrations" of Carr's ideas.[10]

Many accepted public criticisms that Carr was promoting his OTC-X1 in order to 
create interest for his planned amusement park ride at Frontier City in Oklahoma

One Oklahoma City television reporter expressed the general feeling of the 
townspeople, "This thing will never leave the ground. And I feel that a great 
deal of the ballyhoo they're giving out is tied in with the ride at Frontier 
City. I have tried constantly to get in to see the saucer model, but they've 
kept it hidden." [11]

With growing hostile public opinion in Oklahoma, Carr decided to move his center
of operations to Apple Valley, California in late 1959. To prevent any further 
public debacles, he decided not to announce any test flights in advance. With 
new financial backing and a large production plant, Osbrink, at his disposal, 
Carr proceeded with his plans to develop and test his spacecraft. Major Wayne 
Aho, a former Army Combat Intelligence Officer during World War II, and Carr¹s 
chief pilot, proclaimed that he would "fly to the moon in a flying saucer on 
December 7, 1959."[12] Little was subsequently heard of Carr¹s efforts and plans
to test his full scale 45 foot prototype. No public reports exist of any 
subsequent tests.

In raising revenue for his spacecraft program, Carr was experiencing increasing 
problems with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that had placed an 
injunction against Carr, ordering him to cease selling unregistered stock².[13] 
California on June 2, 1960, Carr told an audience of 300 that it was a 
"treacherous misstatement of fact to say or infer that we [OTC Enterprises] are 
coming to California to raise money in stock sales." [14]

In January, 1961 the Attorney General of New York, Louis J. Lefkowitz, claimed 
Carr had swindled $50,000. He was charged with "the crime of selling securities 
without registering the same." Carr was sentenced to a 14 year prison term. At 
the same time, True Magazine labeled Carr a hoaxer, thereby effectively ending 
any remaining public sympathy for him. After serving part of his term, Carr was 
released from prison, and disappeared from the public arena. Suffering ill 
health and cut off from supporters, he lived in obscurity. He died in 
Gardnerville, Nevada, in 2005. Apparently, the bold development of a civilian 
spacecraft industry had ignominiously failed. Its pioneer, a protégé of the 
great Nikola Tesla, was publicly disgraced as a felon having apparently hoaxed 
members of the general public with his wild tales of building civilian 
spacecraft while actually promoting an amusement park ride.

The true history of what happened with Carr and his effort to develop a civilian
spacecraft industry would remain secret for almost another 50 years. It is only 
the public emergence of one of Carr¹s trusted technicians that the truth would 
finally be told of what had really happened with the world¹s first civilian 
spacecraft effort.

Ralph Ring Emerges to Reveal Carr¹s successful development of the OTC-X1

In March 2006, a largely unknown individual came forward to reveal that he was 
one of three pilots of a successful test of Carr¹s full scale prototype of the 
OTC-XI.[15] Ralph Ring claims to be a technician who was recruited into Carr¹s 
team attempting to build a 45 foot prototype spacecraft after Carr had relocated
in California in 1959. Ring at the time was a talented inventor who had grown 
frustrated with corporate sector disinterest in innovative principles concerning
electromagnetic energy. He had earlier helped the famous French oceanographer 
Jacques Cousteau develop the aqualung, and later worked at a government-funded 
research organization called Advanced Kinetics.

In a series of public interviews and presentations, Ring described the 
conditions of leaving Advanced Kinetics. He claims to have resolved two complex 
engineering problems involving electromagnetism. Confident of a job promotion, 
Ring was instead told by the director that they were government funded 
corporation and ³we¹re paid to look for the answers, but not to find them!²[16] 
In frustration, Ring left and met with Carr in late 1959, and was quickly 
impressed with his ideas, including a plan to build a civilian spacecraft. In 
his first public interview, Ring described Carr as follows:

He was an unquestioned genius. Tesla had recognized his quality immediately and 
had taught him everything he knew. He was inspired, and ­ like Tesla ­ seemed to
know exactly what to do to get something to work. He was a private man and was 
also very metaphysical in his thinking. I think the fact that he was not 
formally trained in physics helped him. He was not constrained by any 
preconceived ideas. As crazy as it sounds now, he was determined to fly to the 
moon and really believed it could be done. I believed it. We all did.[17]

Ring directly participated in the testing of smaller models of the OTC-XI craft 
developed by Carr. He described how these had been successfully tested and 
exhibited unique characteristics when achieving certain rotational speeds:

...the metal turned to Jell-o. You could push your finger right into it. It 
ceased to be solid. It turned into another form of matter, which was as if it 
was not entirely here in this reality. That's the only way I can attempt to 
describe it. It was uncanny, one of the weirdest sensations I've ever felt.[18]

Most importantly, Ring claims that the 45 foot OTC-XI prototype developed by 
Carr was completed and successfully tested back in 1959. Ring says he was one of
three pilots on the craft which flew 10 miles instantaneously. Ring described 
how Carr had been able to maintain communications with the three man team 
piloting the OTC-X1 who were instructed to complete a series of tasks, before 
returning to the launch site. When asked if the OTC-XI had flown to its 
destination, Ring said:

Fly is not the right word. It traversed distance. It seemed to take no time. I 
was with two other engineers when we piloted the 45' craft about ten miles. I 
thought it hadn't moved ­ I thought it had failed. I was completely astonished 
when we realized that we had returned with samples of rocks and plants from our 
destination. It was a dramatic success. It was more like a kind of 
teleportation. [19]

Ring described how the test flight had been able to change the flow of time:

"What's more, time was distorted somehow. We felt we were in the craft about 
fifteen or twenty seconds. We were told afterwards that we'd been carefully 
timed as having been in the craft no longer than three or four minutes. I still 
have no complete idea how it worked. [20]

The most remarkable part of Ring¹s testimony concerns the unique navigation 
system used by the pilots to control the movements of the OTC-XI. According to 
Ring, this navigation system used the conscious intent of the pilots rather than
conventional technology.

The Utron was the key to it all. Carr said it accumulated energy because of its 
shape, and focused it, and also responded to our conscious intentions. When we 
operated the machine, we didn't work any controls. We went into a kind of 
meditative state and all three of us focused our intentions on the effect we 
wanted to achieve. It sounds ridiculous, I know. But that's what we did, and 
that's what worked. Carr had tapped into some principle which is not understood,
in which consciousness melds with engineering to create an effect. You can't 
write that into equations. I have no idea how he knew it would work. But it did.

Success of the first test of the full scale OTC-XI meant that planning for 
flights into outer space and to the moon was now proceeding in earnest. Ring 
said Carr and his crew worked round the clock to complete the testing program 
before announcing the results to the general public.

The most dramatic part of Ring¹s testimony concerns what happened two weeks 
after the successful test of the OTC-X1. He said that Carr's operation was 
closed down by the FBI and other government agencies in a secret raid involving 
seven or eight truckloads of armed government personnel. The FBI told Carr that 
his project was being closed ³because of your threat to overthrow the monetary 
system of the United States of America.²[22]

Indeed, Carr¹s successful testing of a civilian spacecraft, had it been allowed 
to go ahead, would have revolutionized the energy sector and the aerospace 
industry. The conventional energy industry using fossil fuels to generate 
electric power and the aviation industry would have become redundant overnight. 
Large U.S. corporate interests in the energy sector would have lost their 
substantial investments. Lack of corporate profits would throw countless 
thousands out of work. The financial effect of a civilian spacecraft industry 
using electrical energy from the atmosphere for power would indeed have placed 
enormous pressure on the U.S. monetary system possibly causing its collapse.

In a series of interviews and public presentations, Ring claims FBI agents 
confiscated all the equipment including the OTC-XI prototype. They debriefed all
of Carr¹s employees, warned them to remain silent on what had happened, and made
Carr sign non-disclosure agreements. Ring¹s testimony, if true, reveals what 
really happened with Otis Carr¹s radical civilian spacecraft project. Rather 
than Carr being a fraud who deceived a number of investors funding his radical 
civilian spacecraft ideas, Carr had been successful. His success so threatened 
entrenched interests in the energy sector, that his operation was shut down with
the full approval and knowledge of a select number of government agencies 
concerned with the financial impact on the U.S. monetary system. Carr himself 
was forced to endure trumped up charges designed to discredit him, and end his 
bold effort to develop a civilian spacecraft industry.

How Credible is Ralph Ring¹s Testimony?

How much evidence exists to substantiate Ring¹s testimony? Ring is a very 
likable and sincere individual who has impressed audiences with his genuineness 
and frankness. Bill Ryan and Kerry Cassidy, founders of Project Camelot, a 
website featuring video interviews of whistleblowers, were the first to 
interview Ring in March 2006.[23] After a series of interviews, they conclude: 
³There is no doubt in our minds that Ralph Ring is 100% genuine. Everyone who 
has met him and heard his story in person is in full agreement.²[24] This is 
something I can personally verify since I was able to hear Ring present his 
ideas at the International UFO Congress in 2007 and was able to speak personally
with him. I concur with Ryan and Cassidy that Ring¹s personal qualities make him
very credible. He appears to be motivated by a simple desire to tell the truth 
about events that happened almost 50 years ago that could have revolutionized 
life on the planet.

Ring has provided a number of photographs of the OTC-XI developed by Carr. These
photographs had previously not been published. The photos showed that Carr had 
indeed succeeded in building a number of models including the 45 foot prototype 
spacecraft (see photo below on left). The photos dispel the view that Carr had 
not succeeded in developing a full scale prototype spacecraft. Ring¹s photos are
material evidence that he did indeed collaborate with Carr on the OTC-X1, as he 

Perhaps most significant is what occurred to Ring soon after coming forward to 
reveal his experiences with Otis Carr in March 2006. Bill Ryan describes what 

Shortly afterwards, Ralph went into hospital for a routine knee replacement 
operation. He accidentally received the wrong treatment, and nearly died three 
times. At the time of writing (July 2006) he has just recently emerged, very 
frail, from intensive care - but is determined to tell his story. Prior to that 
he had enjoyed perfect health for 71 years.[25]

In his presentation at the 2007 International UFO Congress, Ring described how 
he had been taken by ambulance to a hospital 25 miles away, bypassing a hospital
adjacent to where he was staying. Ring hovered perilously close to death as a 
result of the Œmistreatment¹ and the long ambulance ride. Was the ³accidental² 
application of another patient¹s medication, and the ³bypassing² of nearer 
hospitals part of a covert attempt on Ring¹s life? The circumstances are 
certainly suspicious and do indicate an effort to silence Ring. This series of 
³accidental² events that almost took Ring¹s life soon after his public emergence
provides circumstantial evidence in support of his claims.

Exopolitical Implications

We can now draw together the different elements concerning Otis Carr¹s OTC-XI 
project and Ralph Ring¹s testimony. Carr¹s successful development of a fully 
operational civilian spacecraft using radical electromagnetic propulsion and 
navigation systems led to a brutal response by federal government agencies. 
Agencies led by the FBI raided Carr¹s construction facilities, confiscated 
equipment, intimidated employees into silence, and publicly discredited Carr 
through trumped up charges orchestrated from the U.S. Stock and Securities 
Commission. Ring¹s public testimony and photographic evidence he provided of the
existence of Carr¹s OTC-X1, give confidence that elements inside the U.S. 
Government suppressed a wholly civilian owned spacecraft industry. Several 
motives for this suppression appear.

The first and principal motive for the government suppression was to protect 
U.S. industrial interests in the energy sector that would have been threatened 
by knowledge of how to draw free electrical energy from the atmosphere. U.S. 
corporations dominate the energy sector around the planet, and the appearance of
³free energy² technologies would wreak havoc on their stock value. This would 
impact negatively on the entire U.S. economy.

A second and related motive for this suppression is the impact of ³free energy² 
technologies on the U.S monetary system ­ the explanation given by FBI agents 
for raiding Carr¹s plant. The development of free energy technologies would make
redundant the conventional energy sector owned by U.S. corporations possibly 
leading to a collapse of the U.S. dollar.

A third possible motive is preventing the development of a civilian spacecraft 
industry that could travel into outer space and other planets with minimal or no
government regulation. Such a civilian spacecraft industry could easily travel 
to nearby planets to confirm whether intelligent life forms have ever resided or
continue to reside on the moon, Mars and elsewhere in our solar system. There is
evidence that intelligent extraterrestrial life has been discovered on the moon 
and other planets but this is being suppressed by major governments.[26] Many 
analyses of NASA photographs of the moon and Mars reveal artificial structures 
and anomalous phenomenon under intelligent control. Despite widespread public 
interest in these, NASA refuses to seriously investigate such evidence and many 
have concluded a cover up is underway.[27]

A fourth motive to suppress Carr¹s OTC-XI project was to keep secret technology 
already being developed in classified projects. Carr¹s work was not deemed 
important enough to be classified so that he and his technicians could continue 
to work on developing his ideas of a spacecraft that could travel to the moon at
light speed. His project was shut down, Carr discredited and his technicians 
intimidated into silence. There is an obvious explanation for this response by 
involved government authorities.

The reason for the treatment given to Carr and his technicians was that 
government authorities had no need for Carr¹s ideas on how to develop a 
spacecraft capable of light speed, and which could tap into free electrical 
energy available in the Earth¹s atmosphere. Responsible government authorities 
would also have no need for the unique navigation system developed by Carr for 
his OTC-XI that used a mind-technology interface between the pilots and the 
spacecraft. This was not because government authorities were not interested in 
these ideas. More likely, these authorities already had a classified project for
an antigravity craft capable of near light speed and powered by electrical 
energy drawn from the natural environment.[28] The principles for Œlight speed¹ 
space flight were likely so well known that the efforts of civilian inventors 
were simply not needed in classified antigravity projects. The conclusion is 
that in the 1950¹s, the U.S. government already had a number of operational 
spacecraft that were capable of attaining near light speed, and could draw 
electrical energy from the Earth¹s atmosphere that could be stored for space 

A final possible motive for the closing down of Carr¹s spacecraft program is 
that an exclusive group of quasi-governmental or ³shadow government² authorities
with strong ties to corporations did not want to alert regular military and/or 
government authorities of the existence of such advanced technology. Dr Steven 
Greer describes an interview he and former Apollo Astronaut Edgar Mitchell had 
with Vice Admiral Tom Wilson in 1997 when Wilson was J-2, head of the 
Intelligence division of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. When advised of certain 
Special Access programs involving possible extraterrestrial technology, Wilson 
was denied access to these since he did not have a ³need to know².[29] Such 
unprecedented action, restricting a sitting head of intelligence of the Joint 
Chiefs of Staff, demonstrates that a group of ³shadow government² authorities 
keeps advanced technologies away from regular military and governmental 
authorities. The existence of such a ³shadow government² has been suggested by a
number of prominent U.S. politicians including Senator Daniel K. Inouye: ³There 
exists a shadowy Government with it¹s own Air Force, its own Navy, it¹s own 
fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national 
interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.²[30] 
Shutting down Carr¹s civilian spacecraft program would deny regular military and
governmental authorities knowledge and access to such advanced technology. This 
would place the regular military at great disadvantage in monitoring what is 
occurring in deep black projects involving advanced technology controlled by 
shadowy government agencies outside of the regular chain of command.

Carr¹s mysterious illness prior to his public testing of his six foot model in 
1959, and the near death of Ralph Ring in 2006 after his coming forward to 
reveal his testimony, suggest covert government operations to prevent public 
demonstration and knowledge of advanced technologies. Covert government agencies
have been historically observed to be targeting inventors and researchers 
working on advanced technologies.[31] Discrediting, silencing or terminating 
inventors and/or whistleblowers appears to continue.


In 1959/1960, Otis Carr and his team had succeeded in developing the world¹s 
first civilian spacecraft. This notable achievement was brutally suppressed, and
Carr was incarcerated on trumped up charges in 1961. The collusion of some 
elements of the U.S. government in suppressing the emergence of a civilian 
spacecraft industry emerges as a key historical fact. U.S. corporations in the 
energy sector, aware of Carr¹s ambitious program, were likely a key factor in 
this suppression.

The implications of Ring¹s testimony and Carr¹s achievements are momentous for 
humanity. Rather than a felon who hoaxed the general public with radical ideas 
of civilian spacecraft, Carr was a heroic inventor who succeeded, against 
tremendous odds in building the world¹s first civilian spacecraft. Carr and his 
team of collaborators need to be acknowledged and honored for their pioneering 
efforts. Congressional inquiries should be immediately launched to fully 
investigate what happened to Carr. The FBI and other government agencies 
involved in raiding Carr¹s facilities and confiscating equipment should reveal 
what occurred. The precise role of U.S. corporations complicit in these 
repressive actions also need to be thoroughly investigated. Appropriate 
legislation needs to be developed to prevent future instances of pioneering 
inventors being targeted by government agencies acting at the behest of vested 
interest groups.

The technological revolution that will emerge with a thorough investigation of 
Carr¹s accomplishments must be embraced rather than hidden from the general 
public. Shadowy governmental agencies and corporations responsible for 
suppressing the public emergence of such technology, even to the extent of 
denying it to regular military forces, need to be revealed and made accountable.
Humanity is on the threshold on a remarkable achievement, the development of an 
inexpensive civilian spacecraft industry that can achieve travel to planets in 
our solar system and the stars. Vested financial interests and 
quasi-governmental groups hoarding such technology, can no longer be allowed to 
hold back this remarkable achievement.
