    30 Images That Prove The End Is Near

    Because sometimes we, as a society need help to realize what exactly is going on around us, and how things have changed, and not for the better, here are 30 images that prove the end is near.

    Take a look at the largest diamond mine in the world. The Mir Mine. What exactly is mankind ready to do to get what they want? Does mother nature stand a chance against destructive humans?

    This image above is a satellite view of the metropolitan area of New Delhi in India. It is the world’s third-largest metropolis, and it continues to grow.

    A Plastic Bag was recently discovered at the deepest point on Earth.

    Black Friday: Need I say more? Sigh.

    Remember the Fukushima Disaster in Japan? Why not resort to eco-friendly energy?

    Yeah, this was once an elephant.

    The Ancient Temple of Ain Dara reduced to rubble after the war.

    Chemtrails. Not a conspiracy anymore.

    This is an oilfield in California.

    Deforestation in Canada.

    This image was shot in Java, Indonesia where people still surf beautiful turquoise waves, despite the trash and filth.

    Yeah, that’s Toxic plume.

    Melting ice is producing an incredible waterfall right on top of an iceberg in this stunning yet worrying image.

    Welcome to the Concrete Jungle. L.A., evidence of a consumption-oriented, car-dependent society.

    As ecosystems change and ice caps melt, changes occur. This image shows a polar bear that starved to death. Experts say that ice caps are disappearing alarmingly.

    Scenes like these are common all around the globe.

    After stripping electronic devices of any ‘precious’ metals, this is what remains. Plastic, plastic, and yeah, more plastic.

    Rising sea levels could see places like the Maldives disappear beneath the ocean.

    Satellite image of the tar sands region. As we can see in the image, mining operations and tailing ponds are so widespread; they are visible from space.

    That ‘colorful scenery’ inside the albatross is plastic.

    And if our waste doesn’t get the animals, poachers will hunt them down to extinction level.

    We cut down trees without thinking about the consequences.

    Wildfires have become frequent around the globe. These destructive fires are another consequence of a warming planet.

    In this image, we can observe a waste treatment plant in India. There are surely better ways to treat waste?

    Oil is not the energy of the future. But those who profit from it don’t really care, right?

    A shepherd photographed in Inner Mongolia cannot stand the smell as he navigates the Yellow River.

    In Peru, the rainforest has survived mercury poisoning coming from the south produced by diamond mines.  To the North, oil companies destroy everything they find along the way. This image shows the rainforest burning.

    Greenhouses cover the landscape in Almeria, Spain

    Mexico City. Need I say more?

    Check Out The Floating Pyramid City That Makes 100% Of Its Food, Water And Electricity

    I’ve got to admit, every once in a while, I get tired from the life in a big city.

    Modern ways of life have twisted the fabrics of our society to a point where people live by the clock without consideration, by the routine.

    We live in a monotony, where every day is similar to the previous one and a strictly embedded pattern in our society unconsciously dictates how our lives unfold.

    Society, our communities, and life, in general, has drastically changed, and we have become hugely dependent on things that did not matter previously.

    So if you have become tired of Suburbia, you may have a pretty awesome alternative: applying to live on the ocean, in a community made of self-sufficient, solar powered, Pyramid-shaped buildings.

    Need I say more?

    The Waya Adobes were designed by Pierpaolo Lazzarini a man who managed to blend the past and the future, inspired by ancient Mayan and Japanese architecture.

    A pretty awesome project, right? Image Credit: Pierpaolo Lazzarini

    His pyramid-shaped buildings come in a variety of designs and sizes and are specifically built to serve different purposes.

    According to New Atlas some exist as floating homes, whereas others function as greenhouses, hotels, and cinemas.

    The largest of the structures was designed to be around 30 meters tall, above the water line.

    According to Lazzarini, the Pyramid-shaped Waya modules are to be built of fiberglass, carbon fiber as well as steel. The buildings are to be installed on massive floating platforms, containing basements locate beneath the water, suitable for bedrooms or living rooms.

    As the floating Pyramid-shaped city aims to be fully autonomous and self-sustaining, the Waya modules will have solar-powered motors that will propel the structures.

    The Pyramid-city would also have a small marina where the inhabitants could accommodate their boats and other water vehicles.

    Lazzarini envisioned how each Waya module would obtain electricity from solar panels and water turbines.

    Sounds interesting right?

    Image Credit: Pierpaolo Lazzarini

    However, the city, Wayaland, is still in concept stage, and Lazzarini is currently raising funds to begin the construction of the pyramid-shaped floating city with a crowdfunding campaign.

    The Smallest Waya module will cost around $422,000 USD.

    The modules would also be available for rent, with a cost of around $1,200 USD per night.

    All of those who purchase a Waya module will participate in the community giving them rights like voting for where the Pyramid-shaped city would be located, based on a pre-selected list of optimal locations.

    Lazzarini plans the inauguration of Wayaland to take place in 2022.

    So, if you have a bit of cash to space, like Pyramids–floating pyramids–and want to live in a fully autonomous and self-sustaining city, hop over to Lazzarini’s website and found more about this revolutionary project.

    Scientists Find Genetically ‘Different’ Humans Adapted For Diving

    No, scientists didn’t discover fish people, nor did they find a new species of humans. 

    A mystery people living in Southeastern Asia has baffled scientists for years.

    The people of the Bajau tribe, in Southeast Asia, only need a breath of air to dive up to 70 meters underwater and fish, remaining submerged for several minutes. This has led experts to question how dey manage to do it.

    These people were almost like “super-humans” and have “extraordinary” capabilities…

    Image Credit: Melissa Ilardo

    A recent study published in the Journal cell describes how a certain population of humans has genetically adapted to dive underwater.

    Experts describe a population that has remarkably larger organs, which help them stay underwater for greater periods of time.

    This isn’t the first time that experts have found genetic mutations in humans.

    The more we peer into our genes, the more we discover how people from around the world have adapted to their surroundings, making them remarkably unique in a number of ways.

    For example, people in Tibet and the Ethiopian highlands have ‘evolved’ to better adapt to living at extremely high altitudes.

    People in East Africa and Northern Europe have adopted a genetic mutation that allows them to better digest milk as adults.

    And now, scientists reported a new type of genetic mutation different from the above-mentioned in sea-dwelling people in Southeastern Asia.

    This genetic mutation allows them to become exceptional divers.

    According to experts, the Bajau people, who are scattered in several communities across Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines have evolved to longer survive underwater.

    These people traditionally live on houseboats, reports the New York Times.

    “They are simply a stranger to the land,” said Rodney C. Jubilado, a University of Hawaii anthropologist who studies the Bajau but was not involved in the new study.

    Scientists studied the extraordinary capacity of the Bajau and have reached a conclusion: they can spend minutes without breathing thanks to a genetic mutation that has caused, among other things, to develop a bigger spleen.

    This organ, among other functions, can store oxygen-bearing red blood cells.

    In their study, whose results were published in the journal Cell, the scientists were guided by previous studies on Seals.

    As it turns out, some species of seals can dive longer than others. These Seals have spleens larger than expected.

    Inspired by this unexpected find, the team of scientists used an ultrasound device to measure the spleen in 43 people from the Bajau and  33 people from a neighboring group of farmers, the Saluan.

    Scientists found that one variant of a gene called PDE10A influenced the size of Spleens in the Bajau people. Experts found that people with one copy of the mutant gene had much larger spleens that people with one. Scientists also found that people who have two copies of the mutant gene had even bigger spleens.

    However, scientists found this surprising, as they’ve never found a special role for PDE10A in the spleen.

    “This connection was a bit bizarre,” Dr. Ilardo concluded.

    According to TechTimes, Dr. Melissa Ilardo said that Bajau people were almost like “super-humans” and that had “extraordinary” capabilities but also stated that natural selection is much more powerful than realized and should be given more credit.

    Dr. Ilardo also said that she was excited to share her findings with the Bajau people as she felt that they understood the “science” behind her research and to satisfy their curiosity about the world and themselves.

    “It seemed like the perfect opportunity for natural selection to act on a population,” said Dr. Ilardo.

    “Exiled” asteroid shouldn’t be where it is


    In the dark, frozen wasteland that lies just beyond Neptune, few things really stand out — and now, astronomers have found one of them: a carbon-rich asteroid, the first asteroid of its kind to be discovered at the outskirts of our solar system.

    Artistic depiction of the exiled asteroid 2004 EW95, the first carbon-rich asteroid confirmed to exist in the Kuiper Belt and a relic of the primordial solar system.

    It really shouldn’t be there, and as it so often happens in such studies, researchers first thought it was a mistake. Astronomers would have expected this kind of space rock in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter but instead, it was drifting along just beyond Neptune.

    The asteroid, which was named 2004 EW95, might be the first of a new class of space objects lurking the frigid area we call the Kuiper belt — the circumstellar disc in the outer Solar System, extending outward from the orbit of Neptune.

    So how did the asteroid, which likely originated in the inner parts of our solar system, migrate so much?

    It probably has a lot to do with our solar systems’ gas giants, which, in their infancies, caused quite a ruckus in the solar systems. During their early days, the gas giants probably orbited much closer to the Sun than they do today. But they started their outwards migration not long after the solar system was formed, and as they did so, they created all sorts of chaos.

    Among this chaos, chunks of ice and rock such as 2004 EW95 were hurled away, which explains how it could have gotten there — and it also supports previous theoretical models of early planetary evolution. But even more interestingly, this means that the asteroid (and others of its kind) could provide insight as to how the solar system looked in its earlier days.

    A lone rock far away from home

    It’s not the first time objects that originated in the inner solar system were found so far away, but none were confirmed to the level of quality of 2004 EW95. It all started when Tom Seccull, a doctoral student at Queen’s University Belfast in Northern Ireland, used the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope to look at the light signatures of icy objects in the Kuiper Belt. When they found a 90-mile-long object, located 2.5 billion miles from Earth, something just wasn’t right — the object wasn’t exhibiting the same properties as its neighbors. Further analysis revealed that the object did not share the same icy past as other rocks drifting nearby. Instead, it appeared to have formed in a hotter environment, closer to the Sun.

    When we first looked at this, we thought it was wrong,” said Mr. Seccull, the lead author of the paper published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters. “The rock had been altered by the presence of liquid water.”

    The team also determined the asteroid’s chemistry, using a technique called spectrometry. Since Kuiper Belt Object 2004 EW95 has a strong spectrum, its light can be broken down into different wavelengths, enabling researchers to determine what the asteroid is made of. However, identifying the chemical composition of such a distant object is extremely difficult.

    The dramatic distance and the asteroid’s relatively small size make it an extremely difficult target to track, and the fact that it features carbon molecules, which makes it appear darker in color, doesn’t make it any easier.

    It’s like observing a giant mountain of coal against the pitch-black canvas of the night sky,” said Thomas Puzia, an astronomer at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and co-author of the research paper.

    Still, the team was able to overcome these difficulties, finding that the asteroid contains carbon, iron oxides, and phyllosilicates (sheet-like silicate minerals). This is the first object ever found in the Kuiper belt containing these elements, all of which indicate that the asteroid formed in the inner parts of the Solar System.

    With all this information, the research team concluded that 2004 EW95 probably formed between Mars and Jupiter, and was dragged along as the gas giants moved to their current orbits, thus offering important information about the dynamics of the early solar system.

    We should also probably be thankful for this migration of the gas giants. Astronomers have found strong evidence that in many cases, these planets don’t move outwards, and stay in very close orbit to the Sun, creating what is called Hot Jupiters. Hot Jupiters are believed to deter the formation of rocky planets such as the Earth.

    Whatsmore, as they migrate, they can destroy everything in their path, including the proto-Earth. So we should be grateful that they moved in just the right way to allow our planet to be formed, and ultimately, enable a species of primates we call humans emerge and evolve on this blue dot we claim as home.

    NASA shuttle finds evidence of water plumes on Europa — sparking more hopes signs of life


    NASA’s Galileo shuttle has found evidence of water plumes on Jupiter’s Moon Europa, transporting material from the internal ocean out into space. This not only confirms that Europa has liquid water beneath its frozen surface, but opens up the possibility of sampling Europa’s water without needing to get down to the surface.

    When people first considered the possibility of extraterrestrial life, the Moon or Venus seemed likely candidates. Then, as we understood that isn’t really the case, Mars became the main point of interest. But once again, rovers showed that life isn’t really thriving on Mars — though that might have been the case at some point in the past. Now, unlikely candidates have emerged: frigid satellites like Europa.

    Researchers believe that beneath its frozen surface, Europa features an ocean of liquid water which may very well host life.

    Europa is archetypical of the outer Solar System’s ‘ocean worlds’ — frozen satellites with liquid water hidden beneath a few kilometers of ice. Naturally, an ocean of warm, liquid water sounds like a great place for life to emerge and develop — but how do you study that? The most straightforward way would be to send a lander to places like Europa, drill through the ice, and take samples, but that’s problematic for numerous reasons.

    First, it would be extremely costly and pose several technical difficulties. Not only do you need to somehow land on the rough and unforgiving ice, but you also need to drill several kilometers deep. Then, there’s also the risk of contamination, the problem of analyzing the results, and about a million things that could go wrong in the process. But there’s another way which might offer similar results: instead of digging down to the liquid water, what if the liquid water comes to us?

    Telescope observations have indicated the existence of water plumes — columns of liquid water flowing to the surface, and even way above it. In 2012 and 2016, Hubble Space Telescope observed plume-like phenomena, but it’s still unclear if what Hubble saw was actually a plume, since the observation was made very close to the telescope’s maximum resolution.

    Now, however, NASA has found much clearer evidence of these plumes, thanks to the Galileo spacecraft.

    Galileo studied the planet Jupiter and its moons from 1989 to 2004. Looking through the data of a Europa flyby, Xianzhe Jia and colleagues spotted something unusual. During this flyby, which dropped below 400 km altitude, the shuttle’s magnetic instruments detected some unusual magnetic waves and plasma — which they interpreted as a plume.

    Reconstructing Galileo’s path, they found that the magnetic anomaly coincides with a region of anomalous temperatures. This unusually hot area can only be fully explained by a transport of heat from Europa’s interior — something was carrying heat from Europa’s depths to the surface. In other words, all the evidence points towards a plume.

    This finding could be extremely helpful for future missions to Europa, such as NASA’s Europa Clipper and ESA’s Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer spacecraft, which are scheduled to arrive in Jupiter’s system in the 2020s and 2030s respectively. Being able to study surface water or even better, plumes high up in the atmosphere would make a big difference for these missions.

    It’s also not just Europa — Saturn’s moons Enceladus and Titan are also top priorities for extraterrestrial life in our solar system, and they’re also frozen moons with a subsurface ocean of liquid water. We certainly live in exciting times.

    Geisers op Jupitermaan Europa doen hoop op buitenaards leven toenemen -

     Er zouden wel degelijk “jets” van waterdamp op het oppervlak van de Jupitermaan Europa zijn. Dit blijkt uit nieuwe gegevens die vandaag werden gepubliceerd in het wetenschappelijk tijdschrift Nature Astronomy. De hoop op leven op het hemellichaam kan daarmee weer stijgen.

    De Amerikaanse sonde Galileo, die van 1995 tot 2003 het Jupiterstelsel heeft geëxploreerd, zag reeds aanwijzingen voor de aanwezigheid van een oceaan van vloeibaar water die twee keer zoveel water zou omvatten als alle oceanen op Aarde samen. Die oceaan zou onder een extreem koude en harde ijskorst liggen. Het Amerikaanse ruimtevaartbureau NASA zag daarop Europa als één van de meest plausibele plaatsen voor buitenaards leven in ons zonnestelsel.

    Op basis van data van de Amerikaans-Europese Hubble Ruimtetelescoop opperden vanaf 2012 astronomen de aanwezigheid van bundels van waterdamp op de Jupitermaan.

    Zonder het bestaan ervan te bewijzen doen nieuwe data van de Galileo, verkregen tijdens een overvliegen van Europa in 1997, de balans opnieuw naar die mogelijkheid overhellen. Volgens de nieuwe studie laten immers veranderingen in het magnetisch veld en plasma rondom de maan zich gemakkelijk verklaren door de aanwezigheid van “jets” van waterdamp.

    Indien die geisers er effectief zijn, kunnen zij op een dag de mogelijkheid bieden om met behulp van robots stalen te nemen van het water dat zich onder de ijskorst bevindt. Zodoende is boren doorheen de ijslaag, waarvan de dikte onbekend is, niet nodig. Zo is ook onderzoek naar mogelijke tekenen van leven mogelijk.

    Zowel de VS als het Europese Ruimtevaartbureau ESA plannen respectievelijk met de sondes Europa Clipper en Juice naar Europa te trekken. De verkenners zouden tussen het einde van het volgende decennium en het begin van de jaren dertig het Jupiterstelsel moeten bereiken.

    Lost City of Mardaman Discovered Using Cuneiform Tablets


    The Sumerians and their cuneiform language have done it again. Tablets found in Bassetki, in the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan in Iraq, have been translated by a cuneiform expert and they indicate that the location was once the ancient and lost royal city of Mardaman, which was mentioned in many writings but never found. The tablets date back to around 1250 BCE and give details about this mysterious city and kingdom that once occupied a powerful position on the trade routes between Mesopotamia, Anatolia and Syria.

    The translation of the 92 tablets, discovered in the summer of 2017, was announced last week by the University of Tübingen’s Institute for Ancient Near Eastern Studies where the archeologists, led by Professor Peter Pfälzner, are based. The translation was performed by University of Heidelberg philologist Dr. Betina Faist, one of the world’s few experts in cuneiform, who worked both with some of the small, crumbling tablets and with detailed photographs of those too fragile to be handled. The translations give a clear location of the lost city and change some previously-held assumptions. (Photos of the excavation and tablets here.)

    Example of cuneiform – Gilgamesh Flood Tablet

    Some information about Mardaman had been gleaned previously from other sources. It appears to have started between 2800 BCE and 2650 BCE and its history of destruction and rebuilding began around 2250 BC when it was destroyed by the Akkadian Empire led by Naram-Sin. Later Babylonian sources mention Mardaman being rebuilt, only to be destroyed again in 1786 BCE by Shamshi-Adad I and integrated into the Upper Mesopotamian empire. It became an independent kingdom for a time, but was then destroyed by the Turukkaeans from the Zagros Mountains. Most historians defined this as the end of Mardaman and the beginning of its designation as a lost city.

    The cuneiform tablets have changed that. They show Mardaman continuing to exist as a Middle Assyrian trade powerhouse until around 1200 BCE, which was about the time they were written. In fact, it appears the tablets were stored in pottery in the governor’s palace of Assur-nasir and were preserved under its post-destruction rubble … perhaps intentionally, says Pfälzner.

    “[They] may have been hidden this way shortly after the surrounding building had been destroyed. Perhaps the information [the tablets contain] was meant to be protected and preserved for posterity.”

    Example of cuneiform – Tablet V of Epic of Gilgamesh

    Why were they preserved? Cuneiform is the oldest documented language and, because it seems to have simply appeared rather than evolved, it has often been linked to ancient aliens. Without it, we would not have the literary works of Mesopotamia such as Epic of Gilgamesh and would not know that other documents besides the Bible contained stories of a Garden of Eden, a great flood and biblical figures such as Job.

    Why did the last residents of the lost city of Mardaman hide these tablets in hopes that future generations or civilizations would find them? }

    UFO Flying Beneath A Plane With A Fire Glowing Light Wakes Up Passenger Onboard


    A strange brightly coloured UFO flying beneath an aircraft woke up a passenger with a confused expression on their face.

    A man known only as Mr Chang captured the strange event on a video, which shows a bright line of fire.

    The bizarre footage was taken during a flight over Texas

    (Image: Secure Team 10 / YouTube)

    A plane passenger woke up to see a 'UFO' in the sky outside 

    The footage was taken on a domestic US flight from Atlanta to LA, according to YouTube channel Secure Team 10, which has been exposing UFO sighting videos.

    The passenger, who had taken the clip, claimed that he observed a strange object hovering nearby after he woke up due to a raging thunderstorm.

    He further stated that he saw lightning flashes around a thin cigar-shaped object through the window.

    While travelling through the skies, it appears to shadow the plane.

    Mr Chang believed that during that time they were above Texas, and he only managed to take a few seconds of video through his phone before it went out of battery.

    Tyler Glockner, a UFO enthusiast, said that the footage was one of the bizarre footage that was taken from an aircraft he had seen.

    Viewers of the video have been debating whether the light that was seen was a UFO or just the light on the wing of the plane.

    The lightning appears to be below the bright line which might indicate that the light on the video is a part of the plane.

    Some other viewers think that it may be a reflection of a laptop screen or sunlight based on the break of the clouds that is shown in the video.

    But many also believe that it is a UFO.

    Life on Mars: 'Fossilised skull' found on Red Planet evidence of ancient alien UFOs?

    IMAGES of what appears to be a fossilised skull hidden in the dusty fields of Mars has stunned UFO hunters, sparking excitement signs of extraterrestrial life on Mars have finally been found.

    Mars life alien fossil skull UFO evidence


    LIfe on Mars claim: Do these images show a fossilised skull on the Red Planet?

    Online UFO hunter and self-titled space journalist Joe White, 45, claims to have stumbled upon the remnants of an ancient extraterrestrial inhabitant of Mars.

    The bizarre claim surfaced online after Mr White spent hours trawling through photographs captured by NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover.

    The peculiar images of a rock formation oddly resembling the shape of a skull have no been shared online on Mr White's YouTube channel ArtAlienTV.

    In the video description, the UFO hunter speculates: “A giant bird, a giant’s skull and other mysterious structures and objects on Mars.

    “Just take a look and see.

    “Ignore the official dogma and use your own eyes.”

    According to Mr White, the skull in question measures a staggering two feet, which would make its owner roughly 15 feet in height.

    He then says in the video: “This looks like a giant skull with a jawbone here and maybe an eye socket here and another here.

    "These to me look like teeth – can you see them? One, two, three, four, five, six. Possibly seven.

    “And this looks like jawbone. So could this be another mud fossil, artefact or specimen should I say, encrusted into the mud and dried out?”

    The video has been seen more than 8,000 since being uploaded the viewers were thrilled by the finding.

    One YouTube comment, posted by Lee Roberts, reads: “Outstanding finds. The large skull has detail that’s indisputable.

    “And its dead-on at you. Big thanks for this.”

    Lauren Piantino wrote: “There is so much more out there, on Mars, to be discovered, and so much that won't be able to obfuscate.

    “Moreover, they can no longer hide behind black and white images.”

    George Mair also commented: “That skull could that be a carving on a large wooden pole or tree on its side?

    The supposed alien skull belonged to a large humanoid around 15 feet in height

    The UFO hunter admitted it could all be a case of Pareidolia

    “There is so much in this picture. Amazing stuff.”

    This look like a giant skull with a jawbone

    Joe White, Alien Art TV

    However, there is a much simpler explanation for the images seen in the video and Mr White briefly touched upon it himself in the video.

    The appearance of the skull in the Martian rock comes down to the psychological phenomenon known as Pareidolia.

    Pareidolia is a little trick of the brain which causes people to see hopes and patterns where they do not exist.

    UFO hunters will often falsely assume oddly shaped rocks or shadows on the moon or Mars are evidence of long-lost ancient aliens civilisations.

    Mr White says in the video: “Now this also might be a case Pareidolia, or some holes in the rock.”

    Cosmologist Carl Sagan addressed Pareidolia in 1995, arguing it was a survival tool developed by prehistoric humans to recognise foes from friends.

    He also theorised: “As soon as the infant can see, it recognizes faces, and we now know that this skill is hardwired in our brains.

    “Those infants who a million years ago were unable to recognise a face smiled back less, were less likely to win the hearts of their parents, and less likely to prosper.”

    Stranger Things: Nine Alleged US Combat Drones Recorded on Camera in Texas

    A video filmed in Dallas showing unidentified objects in the night sky has prompted netizens to believe that the United States may have been testing a “secret project.”

    The footage, recorded by Alfredo Cruz, has baffled the Internet, with many laying out conspiracy theories as the man witnessed a bizarre phenomenon that he described as the military “testing secret spaceships they don’t tell us about.” Someone else next to Cruz, however, pointed out that the objects looked like UFOs, having counted nine of them.

    YouTube enthusiasts have come up with various theories on what they actually saw:

    “The US military are 20 years in front any other country with advanced technology. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s them!” wrote a user under nickname Nicky Boy.

    Another user, theenitehawk, voiced a similar point of view:

    “Military ufos [sic], they do have technology like this, watch out.”

    “It’s the way they all move at the same time in the sky, synchronized flight formation, weird,” said Joanne B.

    In March, an aircraft passenger noticed an unusual orange triangle in his pictures of the rising sun in Texas, with many UFOmaniacs on the web labeling the phenomenon a “strange, flaming-looking triangular UFO.” Others, however, speculated that the mysterious craft could have been the TR-3B, a purported secret government plane that can allegedly go undetected on air traffic radars. }

    Hull's X-Files: some of the strangest and spookiest UFO sightings in the city's history

    The historian has undergone months of painstaking research to uncover some of the city's strangest sightings


    Nothing captures the imagination quite like the supernatural.

    From ghosts and ghouls to unidentified flying objects, Hull and East Yorkshire is no stranger to the paranormal.

    Historian Mike Covell has been spending the past few months in painstaking research into a few of the forgotton UFO sightings from around the area.

    Since May 2008, the National Archives has witnessed a slow and steady release of UFO files to the public. The files feature thousands, if not millions of files, and every time they release them, they give Ufologists, or people that study UFO’s, a short window in which they can be downloaded for free.

    Local historian Mike Covell is one of the guest speakers at the Outer Limits Magazine Conference.

    Local historian Mike Covell

    The files, which cover between 1965 and 2008, contain numerous articles, letters, reports, eyewitness accounts, pilot testimony, police reports, drawings, maps, plans, newspaper cuttings and parliamentary questions – all linked to UFO’s.

    There are newspaper cuttings, strange claims of mind control, UFO landings, crashes, and correspondence between several well-known researchers including Dr. David Clarke, Timothy Good, and Nick Redfern.

    The files include sightings reported from the general public, lots of reports from Humberside Police, reports from the public to the police, reports from the public to the Hull Daily Mail, and all of the above to the Ministry of Defence and the Royal Air Force.

    Some of the strangest of these include clippings from the Hull Daily Mail, scanned, photocopied, and entered into the UFO files for researchers to read in years to come.

    Here are some of the highlights.

    Case: DEFE-24-1971

    Hull has a long history of UFO sightings

    Hull has a long history of UFO sightings

    This is a file made up of reports from across the UK, but features a large section on Captain William Shaffner, who was killed when his Lightening plane ditched in the North Sea. The accident was later linked to UFO’s and as such both the Grimsby Telegraph and the Hull Daily Mail featured two page spreads on the incident on October 22, 1992 and October 23, 1992.

    This file features all the pages from the Hull Daily Mail on this incident, spread across four pages of the file.

    Case: DEFE-24-1972

    This file also features newspaper clippings, and contains the Captain William Schaffner articles from the Hull Daily Mail. It also contains an article from the Hull Daily Mail, dated Tuesday, November 3, 1992.

    The article, entitled “Making sense of lights in the sky” features the story of Mrs June Cooper, who saw lights over the region in 1970. It goes on to link her sighting with that of Captain William Schaffner, and his ill-fated flight. She claims that she believed that she saw the UFO’s that brought him down off the coast of Flamborough.

    Case: DEFE-31-182-1

    This file features a report from the Hull Daily Mail dated August, 17 1993, entitled “Sightings of UFO’s on the up,” in which it states that UFO sightings in Hull and East Yorkshire are on the increase.

    The claim came during a conference where a local UFO expert, named as Chris Lawson, went on record to state that the number of sightings being reported by eyewitnesses is on the increase. It goes on to include eyewitness accounts from Withernsea, and talks about national and international reports of cattle mutilations.

    The file also features an article from the Hull Daily Mail, dated Friday, May 12 1993, again featuring Chris Lawson, in which it claims that UFO reports across Hull, East Yorkshire, and across the world are not only increasing, but the number of genuine reports are on the increase.

    Finally this file features a newspaper clipping from the Hull Daily Mail, dated September 2, 1993, but it is nothing more than a review of the television show named Strange But True, hosted by Michael Aspel.

    Case: DEFE-24-1989

    This file features a report from Hull via the Ministry of Defence.

    This file was one of many that was linked to a series of sightings seen over the city on the July 25 and 27 July, and August 4 1997. A number of sightings were reported to the offices of the Hull Daily Mail, which in turn were reported to the Ministry of Defence and R.A.F. Waddington.

    The reporter listed in the report is unknown.

    The file states:




    A. 251930 HRS JUL 97 272000 HRS JUL 97 AND 042100 HURS AUG 97














    0. 1415 HRS 7 AUG 97



    The Hull Daily Mail has recently launched a free app which features all the latest news, sport and what’s on information. You can download it for iPhone and iPad from Apple's App Store , or get the Android version from Google Play . }

    UFO in the sky video sparks claims it proves 'aliens are visiting Earth'

    BIZARRE footage of an UFO seen buzzing overhead during a lightning storm is proof aliens are visiting us, an Australian geologist has claimed.

    By Joy Basu 

    Adam Murfet was filming an intense storm over Trinity Park in Cairns, Queensland, when his camera picked up some unusual activity, he told local press. 

    The footage was so shocking, Mr Murfet is reportedly thinking of starting a local UFO watchers group.

    Speaking to the Cairns Post, he said he spotted the small object hovering, zipping around erratically before vanishing and reappearing. 

    He said: “It was at the end of a lightning storm, and I saw this light up in the sky.

    “There as no lightning going on at the time.

    “It shot up and just vanished.”

    A geologist said he spotted an UFO in Australia

    As soon as the light disappeared, the dark sky was struck with lightning again.

    Mr Murfet has sent the footage to the US non-profit Mutual UFO Network for consideration.

    He added: “I have always been fascinated by UFOs but this is the first time I have seen one.”

    This comes as scientists launched a huge search for alien life in the far depths of the Milky Way.

    The new project will survey millions of stars in our galaxy.

    It has been backed by the Breakthrough Listen initiative, which looks for sign of intelligent life in the universe.

    The Listen project is one of a huge range of Breakthrough projects, which also include awards and a planned mission to send tiny spacecraft on long missions away from the Earth. 

    They have been supported by many of the biggest names in science and technology, including everyone from Mark Zuckerberg to Stephen Hawking. }

    5. The sun and the death glow

    In a recently published study, scientists tried to figure out if the sun will leave behind a ghostly dust halo and the end of its life. While an estimated 90 percent of dying stars emit this cloudy glow, computer models established decades ago suggested that the sun would have to be about twice its mass to illuminate the dust and gas surrounding it at these final stages.

    This Is The Largest And Oldest Wheel Found On Earth

    According to history books, the wheel was ‘invented’ in ancient Mesopotamia, around 3500 BCE and possibly as early as 4000 BCE. However, the oldest and largest wheel on Earth was discovered in 2002 in Slovenia. The wheel dates back around 5,300 years, but could possibly be even older.

    If we take a look at our history books, well find that the invention of the wheel has been credited to the Late Neolithic and may have arisen together with a number of other technological advances that kickstarted the Bronze age.

    However, many civilizations, including the Incas and the Aztecs, did not have wheeled vehicles.

    The oldest graphic representations of the wheel come from ancient depictions in the city of Ur (which date back to around 3500 BC), in present-day Iraq, but no physical remains of the wheels have been found there.

    From there, it is believed that the invention spread quickly across the rest of the world.

    Ancient Sumeria, home place of the wheel?

    It is believed that the ancient Sumerians introduced a number of technologies that had never before been seen in the world.

    The wheel, say experts, was one such technology.

    According to historians the ancient Halaf (Syria) culture of 6500–5100 BCE is sometimes credited with the earliest depiction of a wheeled vehicle, but this is doubtful as there is no evidence of Halafians using either wheeled vehicles or even pottery wheels.

    But have you ever wondered about where the oldest discoveredwheel is located?

    Despite the fact that the Sumerians are credited with the ‘invention’ of the wheel, the oldest wheen on Earth was not found in Mesopotamia, but in Europe.

    In 2002, when archaeological excavations carried out in Sloveniarevealed a wooden wheel whose radiocarbon dating revealed that it was between 5,100 and 5,350 years old, the scientific community was left awestruck.

    This excavation performed near Ljubljana marked the discovery of what is now considered the oldest wheel in history.

    It is believed that the oldest inhabitants settled in the region as early as 9,000 years ago; in the Mesolithic, they built temporary residences on isolated rocks in the marsh and on the fringe and they lived by hunting and gathering.

    The discovery of the Slovenian wheel kickstarted a debate among archaeologists who wondered whether it was possible that the wheel had not been invented by the Sumerians, but by an ancient culture in Europe, or whether the wheel appeared simultaneously, on two locations, separated perhaps by a few hundred years?

    The Age of the Ljubljana Marshes Wheel was obtained by studies performed by the VERA laboratory (Vienna Environmental Research Accelerator) in Vienna, which used measurements of the strata in the ground and the rings of trees in the area where it was found, as well as the radiocarbon dating.

    The ancient wheel was discovered by a team of Slovene archeologists from the Ljubljana Institute of Archaeology, as part of the Research Center at the Slovene Academy of Arts and Sciences, lead by Anton Velušček.

    According to experts, this ancient wheel, discovered in 2002 in a marshy area near the Slovenian capital, is at least a century older than its counterparts found in Switzerland and Germany, which were considered until the discovery of the Slovenian wheel the oldest existing examples.

    But in addition of being the oldest example on Earth, experts say that the importance of the Slovenian wheel resides in the fact that “in addition to its exceptional antiquity, this wheel and axle are incredibly technologically advanced”.

    The wheel has a radius of 72 centimeters (28 in) and was made of ash wood.

    Its 124-c124-centimeter-long) axle is made of oak.

    According to experts, the axle was attached to the wheels with oak wood wedges, which meant that the axle rotated together with the wheels.

    The wheel was made from a tree that grew in the vicinity of the pile dwellings and at the time of the wheel, construction was approximately 80 years old.

    It is believed that this ancient wheel was most likely part of a prehistoric two-wheel cart – a pushcart and this technology shows that there was already a long tradition and experience in the development of wheels and axles in the region.

    Ancient Assyrian Clay Tablets Reveal Location Of 4,800-Year-Old Lost City

    After researchers recovered around 90 cuneiform tablets from the ancient Assyrian empire, philologists translated them and identified the location of a lost ancient city that existed some 4,800 years ago.

    The 92 clay tablets belonging to the ancient Assyrian empire were discovered at the archeological site of a large Bronze Age settlement which was explored in 2017 by experts from the University of Tübingen.

    The translation of the ancient writings has allowed archaeologists to identify the ruins of the lost Royal City of Mardama.

    The name of the lost city was only revealed when 92 cuneiform tablets found at the site were translated.

    The cache of clay tablets date back to around 1250BC, to the Middle Assyrian empire and have been translated by University of Heidelberg philologist Betina Faist.

    “To our surprise, Dr. Faist was able to identify the site as the ancient city of Mardama,” the archaeologists said.

    “This important northern Mesopotamian city is cited in ancient sources, but we didn’t know where it lay.”

    “It existed between 2200 and 1200 BC, was at times a kingdom or a provincial capital, and was conquered and destroyed several times.”

    The ancient city of Mardama was mentioned in a number of ancient sources, but no one has been able to determine its exact location until now.

    The ancient city is believed to have existed between  2,200 BC and 2,100 BC and reached its peak between 1900 BC and 1700 BC.

    The ancient city is believed to have been conquered by the Akkadian empire but eventually regained its independence under a Hurrian monarch called Tish-Ulme.

    The city then followed a period of prosperity, until it was destroyed by the Turukku from the Zagros mountains, who are sometimes identified as the Sea People.

    However, this was not the end of the city. Mardama continued to exist until the era in which the Assyrians ruled over it, during which the recently discovered clay tablets were written.

    Ancient writings from the Third Dynasty of Ur, between the years 2100 and 2000 BC portray Mardama as an important city on the northern periphery of the Mesopotamian empire.

    “Mardama certainly rose to be an influential city and a regional kingdom, based on its position on the trade routes between Mesopotamia, Anatolia, and Syria,” said professor Peter Pfälzner, a professor of ancient near-Eastern archaeology at the University of Tübingen in the statement.

    “At times, it was an adversary of the great Mesopotamian powers.”

    The ancient tablets mentioned the city being part of the powerful Assyria empire, and that it was the home of an Assyrian ruler believed to have been called Assur-Nasir.

    Professor Pfälzner and this team were amazed by the discovery, “all of a sudden it became clear that our excavations had found an Assyrian governor’s palace.”

    In addition, the ancient clay tablets offer unprecedented insight into the history and lives of the people of the ancient city of Mardama, as well as never-before-seen details about its administration, economy, and commerce.

    However, most importantly, the recently-uncovered clay tablets not only show the location of the city which remained lost for thousands of years, but it offers important historical accounts of that time in history.

    Now, thanks to the tablets, experts can understand so much more about the cultures and civilizations that ruled the region.

    In the near future, experts will continue studying ancient clay tablets hoping to discover more ancient cities that may have existed in ancient Mesopotamia.

    Une famille de Mareeba observe un incroyable OVNI

    Une famille de Mareeba, une ville située de l’État de Queensland en Australie, a raconté avoir repéré un étrange OVNI se comportant de manière incohérente au-dessus de Kennedy Highway vers 21h le jeudi 10 mai 2018.

    Saphira Mueller a d'abord pensé que cette lumière était une fusée éclairante ou un ballon. Toutefois, elle a été incapable d'expliquer les incroyables caractéristiques physiques de cet objet non identifié. En effet, il était capable de prendre des virages en épingle à cheveux avec une aisance extraordinaire tout en accélérant subitement.

    « Je n'ai jamais rien vu de tel dans ma vie », a déclaré Mme Mueller.

    « Mon compagnon et ma fille étaient avec moi, ils ont été tous les deux surpris. »

    Elle a dit qu'au départ l'objet se déplaçait lentement, mais qu'ensuite les choses sont devenues … étranges.

    « Il se déplaçait dans des directions vraiment étranges : en haut, sur les côtés, en bas. »

    «Il bougeait si vite ... Je pensais que mes yeux me jouaient un tour. »

    Il y a peu, Adam Murfet, un habitant de Trinity Park, affirme avoir observé une lumière au comportement étrange dans le ciel nocturne alors qu'une puissante tempête déferlait sur la ville de Cairns.

    Le co-organisateur du festival Cardwell UFO, Nic Zynaras, a déclaré que l'extrême nord du Queensland était devenu, ces dernières années, une « zone chaude » non officielle pour les observations d'OVNI.

    « Toute la région connaît une certaine activité », a déclaré M. Zynaras.

    « Les observations sont souvent attribuées ou non à des OVNI. »

    Il a dit que les objets vus par les observateurs défiaient souvent les lois de la physique.

    « L'inertie [de ces OVNI] tuerait les occupants à bord selon nos normes de la physique. Ils sont capables de foncer à des vitesses qui défient la logique », a déclaré M. Zynaras.

    « Parfois, ils disparaissent et partent sans laisser de trace. »

    Il pense que ces objets pourraient être d'origine militaire, extraterrestre ou même inter dimensionnel.

    « Ils vont à des vitesses différentes, certains brillent, d'autres pas. »

    Il a dit que le festival d'OVNI qui a lieu au mois d'octobre est une chance de comparer les nombreux témoignages recueillis un peu partout.

    « Nous constatons que beaucoup de gens ont vécu des expériences similaires. »

    Ni l'Autorité de la sécurité de l'aviation civile ni Airservices Australia ne tiennent de registre des observations d'OVNI, ce qui rend les enquêtes des ufologues plus difficiles …

    Fly over a Mars crater

    Fly over Mars’ Neukum Crater, in this video based on images taken by ESA’s Mars Express spacecraft.

    This animation, based on images by the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Mars Express spacecraft, takes you on a flyover of the Neukum Crater in the southern hemisphere of Mars. The crater is about 63 miles (102 km) wide and .6 miles (1 km) deep, with two shallow depressions and a dune field in its interior.

    Neukum Crater is situated in Noachis Terra, one of the oldest known regions on Mars, dating back to at least 3.9 billion years. Here’s how ESA describes the crater:

    This complex impact crater has a diverse geologic history, as indicated by various features on the crater rim and floor. Particularly striking are the dark dune fields, likely made up of volcanic material blown in and shaped by strong winds.

    The crater’s shallow interior has been infilled by sediments over its history. It is also marked with two irregular depressions that may be a sign of a weaker material that has since eroded away, leaving behind some islands of more resistant material.

    Over time the crater rim has undergone varying degrees of collapse, with landslides and slumped material visible in the crater walls. Many smaller craters have also overprinted the rim and pockmarked the interior since Neukum Crater was formed, highlighting its long history.

    The crater is named for the German physicist and planetary scientist Gerhard Neukum, one of the founders of ESA’s Mars Express mission. Neukum led the development of the high-resolution stereo camera on Mars Express.

    ‘Lost’ asteroid to pass closely May 15

    Asteroid 2010 WC9 will pass at about half the moon’s distance, in one of the closest approaches ever observed of an asteroid of this size. Click in for information about viewing online.

    Orbit of asteroid 2010 WC9 (formerly called ZJ99C60) via Asteroid Orbit View and Northolt Branch Observatories.

    Asteroid 2010 WC9 will safely pass at about half’s the moon’s distance on Tuesday, May 15, 2018. Estimates of its size range from 197 to 427 feet (60-130 meters), making the May 15 pass one of the closest approaches ever observed of an asteroid of this size. This asteroid was “lost” and then found again. The Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona first detected it on November 30, 2010, and astronomers watched it until December 1, when it became too faint to see. They didn’t have enough observations to track its orbit fully and so predict its return. On May 8, 2018 – almost eight years later – astronomers discovered an asteroid and gave it the temporary designation ZJ99C60. Then they realized it was asteroid 2010 WC9, returning.

    During the 2018 return, closest approach of asteroid 2010 WC9 will happen on May 15 at 22:05 UTC (6:05 pm EDT; translate to your time). At that time, the asteroid will be 0.53 lunar-distances from Earth (126,419 miles or 203,453 km from Earth). According to orbit calculations made by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the May 15 close approach is the closest of this particular asteroid in nearly 300 years.

    Is this a large asteroid? No, not by any absolute measure. But it is larger than the estimated size of the Chelyabinsk meteor, which entered Earth’s atmosphere, breaking windows in six Russian cities and causing some 1,500 people to seek medical attention, in 2013. Estimates of asteroid 2010 WC9’s diameter range from 197 to 427 feet (60-130 meters); estimates of the Chelyabinsk meteor’s size before encountering Earth’s atmosphere center around 65 feet (20 meters).

    Asteroid 2010 WC9 is an Apollo type space rock. At no time will it be visible to the eye as it sweeps past Earth. It might get as bright as magnitude +11, which would make it bright enough to be seen in amateur telescopes pointed at the correct location and time.

    Asteroid 2010 WC9 is travelling though space at a speed of 28,655 miles per hour (46,116 km/h).

    Want to view the asteroid online? Guy Wells at Northolt Branch Observatories in London, England – which specializes in observations of near-Earth asteroids and other small solar system objects – emailed EarthSky on Friday to say:

    We are planning to broadcast this asteroid live to our Facebook page on the night of May 14, likely around midnight, if the weather forecast remains positive. The broadcast will be less than 25 minutes in duration, as the asteroid will cross our field of view within that period of time. The asteroid will be moving quite rapidly (30 arcseconds per minute). Our display will update every five seconds. We are of course collecting astrometric data whilst this is happening, but the motion of the asteroid will be apparent every five seconds!

    Daniel Bamberger, also at Northolt Branch Observatories, sent along the two images below. He wrote:

    We imaged this object twice: First on May 9, when it was still known by its temporary designation ZJ99C60; then again on May 10, after it was identified as asteroid 2010 WC9, which had been a lost asteroid for eight years.

    It is still a faint object of 18th magnitude, but it is brightening very rapidly: 2010 WC9 will be brighter than 11th magnitude at closest approach, making it visible in a small telescope!

    Bottom line: Asteroid 2010 WC9 will pass at about half the moon’s distance on May 15, 2018. It’s one of the closest approaches ever observed of an asteroid of this size. Northolt Branch Observatories in London will offer a live viewing of the asteroid on its Facebook page, starting around midnight (London time) on May 14. }
