About this projects

The Ghost Rockets Investigation Portal (GRIP) is a unique experience designed to find patterns inside thousands of declassified military reports from the Swedish military. Inside GRIP you can tag clues within the reports, comment on sections within the text, discuss findings with other users and collect information to propose theories.

Even though the Swedish Ghost Rockets Investigation Committee back in 1946 failed to draw a conclusion to the mystery, they did leave behind thousands of documents and reports, consisting of witness statements, military correspondence, maps, diagrams and official investigation reports, making the Ghost Rockets one of the best documented UFO-cases in history.

Maybe with the help of today’s technology and by working together, we can find something in the reports? A clue, a pattern, something consistent, something that might finally reveal an answer.
