    Don’t Read These Wikipedia Pages If You Want To Sleep Tonight
    By  mercediescarlson
     
    In case you haven’t noticed, our world is absolutely terrifying! For those of you that need (more) proof, we have put together a list of Wikipedia pages that will give you the chills.

    1. The Original Night Stalker

    Sacramento Police Department/Wikipedia

    The Original Night Stalker killed 10 people across southern California from the 70s to 80s. He mostly targeted couples, in which he forced the women to tie up their partner before shooting them. He was never caught.

    2. The Max Headroom Signal Intrusion

    On November 22, 1987, someone dressed in a Max Headroom mask hijacked two TV stations while moaning, laughing, and screaming. They were never caught, but reddit user bpaog claims to know who was behind it.

    3. Capgras Delusion

    Jim Grantham/Getty Images

    The Capgras delusion “is a disorder in which a person holds a delusion that a friend, spouse, parent or other close family member (or pet) has been replaced by an identical-looking impostor.” There was even a case of a 74-year-old woman that believed her husband “had been replaced by another unrelated man.” She wouldn’t sleep with him and “asked her son for a gun.”

    4. The Murder of the Dupont de Ligonneses

    David Vincent/AP Images

    Agnes Dupont de Ligonnes and her four children were found murdered in 2011. Investigators believe that they were killed between April 3-4, but neighbors are sure that they saw Agnes days after that. Agnes’ husband, Xavier, is the main suspect in the case, but has yet to be caught.

    5. Unit 731

    Tsugufumi Matsumoto/AP Images

    Unit 731 was a “covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the Imperial Japanese Army” which was infamous for doing experiments on humans. Vivisections were performed on humans without anesthesia and prisoners’ limbs were dipped in water and frozen to test treatments for frostbite.

    6. List of Unusual Deaths

    Maso Finiguerra/Florentine Picture Chronicle

    Don’t worry, Wikipedia will help evolve your worst fears. In addition to being worried about getting in a car accident or having a heart attack, you can now know it’s possible to have a turtle drop on your skull and get hit in the face with an airborne fire hydrant.

    7. The Cleveland Torso Murderer

    gargantuen/Creative Commons/Flickr

    In Cleveland in the 1930s, a killer that was never identified murdered 12 men and women. Most of the time, the cause of death was decapitation and dismemberment.

    8. Overtoun Bridge

    Allan Ogg/Creative Commons/Wikipedia

    This bridge is located in West Dunbartonshire in Scotland. Many dogs have leapt off this ledge and died. What is weird, though, is that they were all from the same side of the bridge. A man threw his infant son over the bridge in 1994, believing his son was an incarnation of the devil.

    9. Kelly-Hopkinsville Encounter

    Cosmin4000/Getty Images

    Seven people at a rural farmhouse in Hopkinsville, Kentucky claimed they were harassed and terrorized by “creatures similar to gremlins” in 1955.

    10. The Keddie Murders

    The Sacramento Bee/wordpress.com/Wikipedia

    Four people rented a cabin in the Sierra Nevada mountains in 1981. They were found tied-up, bludgeoned and stabbed to death. A stake knife was found inside the cabin, and “had been used so forcefully that the blade had bent approximately 25 degrees.” The murderer was never caught.

    11. Grey Goo

    Wildpixel/Getty Images

    The Grey Goo is a hypothetical situation that would cause the end of humanity as we know it. Self-replicating robots would build more and more of themselves, which would consume all of Earth in the process.

    12. List of People Who Disappeared Mysteriously

    Ryan Mcvay/Getty Images

    The number of people that have disappeared and are never heard from again is startling. The list is creepy enough it may keep you in your apartment, forever.

    13. Rat Torture

    Vitalli Hulal/Getty Images

    Torture is awful to begin with, but what if it involved a rat? Well, during the National Reorganization Process in Argentine, rats were inserted into the rectum or vagina using a tube. And during the Dutch Revolt, bowls of rats were placed down on prisoners’ bodies and heated, which caused the rats to chew through people’s flesh in an attempt to escape the heat.

    14. The Voynich Manuscript

    Creative Commons/Wikipedia

    The Voynich Manuscript was written with an unknown system that was carbon-dated back to the early 15th century. Cryptographers have tried to decode it, but have been unsuccessful.

    15. Kaz II

    ABC/YouTube

    This has been referred to as “the ghost yacht.” The three-man crew disappeared, but the shop was found in complete working order with the engine and a laptop running.

    16. Cicada 3301

    Bejim/Getty Images

    This was an organization that set up complicated puzzles to “recruit highly intelligent individuals.” People claimed to have “won” some of the three rounds of recruitment, but no one has provided detailed information to what the organization is exactly doing.

    17. List of Unexplained Sounds

    Studio Grand Quest/Getty Images

    The sound of the Upsweep and the Whistle have yet to be explained, in addition to much more terrifying noises. Many sounds from the ocean are still unidentifiable because the ocean is so dense.

    18. Postmortem Photography

    Creative Commons/Wikipedia

    There was a time when we posed the dead as if they were actually still living. We thought this may remind us of their character when they were alive, but instead, it was very creepy and gave us nightmares.

    19. Phantom Time Hypothesis

    WaveBreakMedia Ltd/Getty Images

    This was allegedly the period between 614 and 911 A.D. when we added in retroactivity. This meant that events that happened during this time occurred at different points in history, or didn’t happen at all. It could be just a conspiracy theory, or is it?

    SCIENTISTS TO LAUNCH SPACECRAFT CAPABLE OF DETECTING PARALLEL UNIVERSES

    The European Space Agency’s Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) mission will be launched in 2034 and will study gravitational waves in more depth.
    Just last year, astronomers declared they had spotted two gravitational waves – or ripples in space - for the first time, validating Albert Einstein’s 100 year old theory.
    The consequence of the discovery has been enormous, with it opening up many diverse realms in the world of physics.



    Since the first discovery, two more gravitational waves have been found, and researchers are looking to discover more.
    The LISA mission will let researchers to sense gravitational waves on the edge of the observable universe and ultimately open a world of information that physicists are uncertain of.
    ESA's director of science, Alvaro Giménez Cañete,told the BBC: "We have no idea what we will discover, but perhaps we can get closer to the line that divides gravity from quantum physics. This may take us there.”
    LISA consist of three satellites that will be placed in a triangle formation and separated by 1.6 million miles.
    The trio system of satellites will beam lasers to each other which will help to sense the waves in the fabric of space-time.


    Moreover, as gravity is expected to be the only consistent across all 11 theoretical dimensions, gravitational waves could ultimately aid researchers to detect parallel universes.
    Gustavo Lucena Gomez, who is leading a study into extra dimensions at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics in Potsdam, Germany, told New Scientist: “If there are extra dimensions in the universe, then gravitational waves can walk along any dimension, even the extra dimensions.”
    Dr Emilian Dudas, from the Ecole Polytechnique in France, added: “Extra dimensions have been discussed for a long time from different points of view.

    “Gravitational waves could be a new twist on looking for extra dimensions.”

    The Suppressed Alien Technology

    Dr. Steven Greer, a former emergency room doctor in the US, who gave it all up to try to expose the truth about aliens and UFOs, made another interview denouncing corrupt world leaders who are sitting on “alien technology” which could provide cost free renewable energy to the world.

    He claims the existence of the world-saving technology is suppressed to allow business moguls to cash in on the oil and fossil fuel industries until they run out. Howeverhe is fighting to get the truth embargo lifted.

    He is a leading voice in the disclosure movement worldwide.

    He said:

    If along with the disclosure of intelligent life, you’re going to have the most disruptive technology in all of history come out… this becomes a big macro-economic issue and that is what the secrecy is partially rooted in.

    “I began to realise that there were people inside government that know about these projects and there are people inside who do not know, and it has nothing to do with your rank, it doesn’t matter if you are the president.

    “It doesn’t matter if you’re the CIA director. It only matters if the bureaucracy feels like you are going to go along with the agenda and keeping this secret.

    His theory is that if “alternative energy” produced by aliens is ever utilised, trillions of dollars invested in oil, gas, and other public utilities will be worthless.

    He said major energy companies would be wiped out.

    It is also suggested the world capitalist system would collapse if people were able to generate power and electricity for free.

    Scientists have invented viable technologies to create free energy, including perpetual motion machines and cold fusion generators. Some of them are recruited by the governments, but most of them are assassinated by the secret services:

    “Equipment does exist which can extract useable power from unconventional energy reservoirs, such as the quantum vacuum zero point energy, for little or no cost, but that anyone trying to progress the systems has been silenced or even killed before the power sources were launched.”

    Other claims are that some free energy systems could also be used as an electromagnetic weapon and the US is terrified of this information getting into the wrong hands.

    Gary Vesperman, of another free energy organisation, The Orion Project, said: “Many such new energy technologies, particularly those using this kind of knowledge of advanced electromagnetic principles, are considered ‘dual use’ technologies that are among the 4,000 un-numbered patent

    applications confiscated in a vault at the US Patent and Trademark Office because of their military potential and the need to keep that knowledge from America’s enemies.”

    Dr Greer says on his website he plans to open the Star LLC New Energy Research Lab, if he can raise $6.3million.

    But, so far he has pulled in just $241,000 since 2014.

    He says on the website:

    In order to research, develop and bring to the public a practical, working zero point energy system, we need a professionally staffed facility composed of the best engineers, physicists and researchers in the world.

    “We estimate that this can be done over a two year period at a nominal cost of $6.3 million for the initial research and development portion of the project.

    “In order to provide the security, support and synergism needed to develop the best possible new energy system we need a well-equipped lab and research facility.

    “The laboratory cannot be opened until the full amount has been raised.

    So which are the countries who are most likely hiding that free technology from us and killing scientists? Well, here’s a little indication:

    UIP Summary:

    Nikola Tesla discovered free energy decades ago, first of all his work was ridiculed, then stolen by the greedy banksters, our planet would be such a better place if these evil individuals didn’t exist. My question is: “Why do the aliens let the elite slowly destroy our planet and its inhabitants”? Are the aliens here on Earth as malevolent as the elite? It would appear so..

    Is The Truth About The Aliens, Going To Come Sooner Than We Think?

    It appears that the US government could soon crack and admit it has secretly been hiding evidence of alien visitations of Earth for the last 70 years, it has astonishingly been claimed – but at what price will those involved with the build up to disclosure pay?

    The build up to disclosure appears to be intensifying, what with evidence now being published by leading scientists and researchers, some of which work for NASA.

    The Paradigm Research Group (PRG), which campaigns to bring an end to an alleged “truth embargo” to keep the truth from the globe, believes there will soon be no going back for government insiders.

    Dr Steven Greer – Pushing for the TRUTH!

    Steve Bassett, executive director of the group is the only registered lobbyist in the US on the issue of alien disclosure.  Many believe that he is potentially going to be the man who manages to officially uncover the truth about the ET’s and has potentially been in contact with Alien races what with his CE-5 ‘alien calling’ initiative (please click HERE for more!).

    Steve is convinced that the shocking secret has been withheld amid fears of the impact it would have on religion and the rule of law since a flying saucer allegedly crashed in the New Mexico desert outside Roswell in 1947.  Lets not forget what happened to the native Americans when their country was first discovered!

    Mr Bassett is now seeking $50,000 to help fund the campaign to pressurise the White House to roll over and say “yes, we’ve deceived you for the last 70 years.”

    He has launched an End The Truth Embargo fundraising page on gofundme.com.

    Mr Bassett says on the page:

    This funding effort is in service to every citizen of every nation now convinced the world should not wait one more day for confirmation we are not alone is this universe. 

    “For 70 years this truth has been embargoed by your government. 

    “After 20 years of engagement of the issue, I know this embargo can end soon with your help.” 

    He believes that the money will be used to set up a permanent office in Washington DC for PRG to “keep the pressure on the media to engage the politics of disclosure throughout 2017.”

    Mr Bassett said the cash would also all PRG to:

    Seek professional speaker representation, make contact with officials in European countries, develop video media for use in the disclosure advocacy movement, built up the Exopolitics World Network and United States Network, and consolidate, redesign and update PRG’s many websites and Facebook pages.

    You can see our recent interview with Mr Bassett below:

    Stephen Bassett’s U.I.P Question & Answer Time

    I’m sure a lot of you guys are aware of Mr Stephen Bassett,  and all of the great efforts he has put into discovering the TRUTH and getting Disclosure off those who lie to us and deceive us. Stephen is a very … Continue readingStephen Bassett’s U.I.P Question & Answer Time

    PRG was bouyed on May 28 when during an interview on CBS 60 Minutes billionaire space engineer, Robert Bigelow, remarkably revealed he believed there is an “extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.”

    Mr Bassett said:

    He spoke truth to power. He stated unequivocally there is an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. When asked if he was concerned what people might think of that statement, he replied, ‘I don’t give a damn.’ 

    “PRG salutes Mr Bigelow and asks, ‘Who will join him?’

    “This funding campaign will ensure PRG can adjust to new strategies to ultimately bring the White House and the Pentagon to the table to work out the necessary understanding allowing disclosure.

    The funding campaign is being conducted in conjunction with Coast to Coast AM with George Noory – described as “the most listened to late night talk program in America.” Coast to Coast AM has for the past 25 years provided a platform for researchers, activists, “alien contactees”, and other UFO witnesses – Hopefully soon U.I.P will be doing a live interview with them!

    So far Mr Bassett has been pledged $6,123 of his target.

    This all comes after fellow disclosure activist Dr Steven Greer claimed US intelligence inside ‘moles’ were trying to break open the truth but were concerned about what will happen to them – lets not forget what has already happened to many others that have potentially tried disclosing the TRUTH:

    Another Dead NASA Scientist, ‘SEVENTY FOUR’ Scientists dead in 2 years!

    Another Dead NASA Scientist, ‘SEVENTY FOUR’ Scientists dead in 2 years!   Friday January 12th 2015, renowned scientist Alberto Behar crashed his small plane in the streets of L.A. shortly after he had taken off. Alberto worked at NASA’s ‘Jet Propulsion Laboratory’ and … Continue readingAnother Dead NASA Scientist, ‘SEVENTY FOUR’ Scientists dead in 2 years!

    U.I.P SUMMARY

    Unfortunately, many sceptics and wannabe debunkers, argue that Mr Bassett and Dr Greer are simply conspiracy theorists, who have got it wrong, and no aliens have ever visited Earth.

    Astrophysicist elite PUPPET, Neil DeGrasse-Tyson has dismissed the whole UFO/alien truth seeker community as having no credible evidence, even though he has not ONCE sat with anybody who has ever witnessed a UFO or has disclosed inside information!?

    People like self-proclaimed ‘top’ astrophysicist Mr DeGrasse-Tyson believe that anyone who donated to the fund would be wasting their hard-earned money, as apparently there is “simply nothing to disclose as no aliens have ever been here” – the question we would like to ask Neil is HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT? Also why is it that people like Neil and Professor Brian Cox always appear to mock those that believe in alien life?  Is that because they are potentially working under the conditioning of the Elite Cabal!?

    An example of yet another so-called ‘Professor’ Brian Cox, denying the fact of the existence of Aliens:

    http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/719863/Brian-Cox-aliens-DEAD-wonders-of-the-universe

    Dr Green And Stephen Bassett appear to be doing a great job of pushing for the truth/disclosure and many will agree that Aliens are a key subject matter at the moment – but could this also be a distraction for what is REALLY going on?

    Some believe that President Trump may soon disclose the truth about the ET’s, but I would not hold your breath on that one as he has far too many tweets to prioritise first.

    UFO Files exclusive: Cold War spyplane incident

    The release by Britain’s Ministry of Defence of 15 of its last remaining UFO files at the UK’s National Archives has revealed details of a stunning Cold War close encounter witnessed by the entire crew of a US Air Force spy-plane.

    A RC-135 Rivet spyplane of the type operated by the USAF during the Cold War (credit: Wikipedia/USAF)

    Formerly secret RAF files opened at The National Archives include a detailed account of an incident on 19 October 1982 when a USAF RC-135 plane, monitoring Soviet military activity, was buzzed by ‘a big object’ over the Eastern Mediterranean.

    According to the files, British personnel at RAF Troodos, a remote base on the island of Cyprus listened in amazement to the radio calls of the American crew as the encounter unfolded at 35,000 feet above the sea.

    The UFO – – described as covered in ‘a multitude of flashing lights 20 at a time’ – was picked up on the spylane’s radar as it approached from the south.

    It then circled around the plane, call-sign Beano 73 – and closed in as the navigator appealed for help from the ground.

    Two US Navy F-14 fighters were scrambled from an aircraft carrier and a RAF Phantom was diverted from a night flying exercise to intercept the UFO, south of the island of Cyprus.

    As the three interceptors approached the USAF crew saw the UFO depart towards the African coast. Nothing was seen by the fighter pilots.

    The files reveal how RAF personnel at the Troodos radar station monitored the entire incident for a period of 90 minutes, beginning shortly after 4pm local time.

    But nothing was seen by British air defence stations – ‘nor was it seen on any ground or seaborne radar, including at 280 SU [280 Signals Unit – RAF Troodos]’.

    Following the encounter a secret investigation was launched by the British authorities. The results were sent to the US Department of Defense in November 1982.

    Neither the British or US government have ever released information about this incident before the files were opened this week.

    Officially the US Air Force’s UFO Project, Blue Book, was closed in 1969. The British Ministry of Defence closed its own UFO desk in 2009 and its secret space intelligence unit, DI55, said it was no longer interested in ‘unidentified aerial phenomena’ (UAP) in 2000.

    But the newly-released RAF file reveals that officials ordered a transcript to be made of the tape recording that captured radio transmissions made between the spyplane crew and ground controllers.

    Copies of the report were circulated to Assistant Chief Scientist (RAF), DD Ops (GE) RAF, DI55 and DSTI.

    Film provided by the RAF Troodos radar station was carefully studied by photographic experts in London and large prints, taken from the radar picture,  were prepared for scrutiny by intelligence officers.

    The file does not reveal what happened to this evidence. The results of the joint UK/US investigation do not appear in the file.

    But a tentative explanation is offered by a senior RAF official, who wrote: ‘We have a strong suspicion that the “UFO” was a mirage effect from lights on the coast of Israel or Lebanon’.

    A signal reporting the sighting sent from RAF Troodos to MoD UK on 20 October describes the UFO as ‘larger than [a] RC-135’.

    Boeing RC-135 aircraft are used by the USAF and RAF to support intelligence gathering. They have been used in every armed conflict including Cold War operations around the borders of the former Soviet Union. The aircraft are 136ft (41m) in length with a wingspan of 130ft (nearly 40m).

    The RAF signal reporting the encounter says the ‘object’ was first spotted: “…initially about two miles from wing of RC-135…moved position around aircraft and closed…object tailed Beano 73 for 90 mins on its northeast/southwest race track….”.

    The signal says the UFO was seen by the ‘whole crew’.

    Three RC-135s were purchased by the RAF in 2017 to serve with 51 Squadron based at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire. The crew includes two pilots, a navigator and up to 25 mission staff.

    Elsewhere in the file a RAF Group Captain collated information on UFO reports received by his air defence staff for a thirty year period ending in 1996, in response to a Parliamentary Question from the Labour MP for Don Valley, Martin Redmond.

    He asked all radar stations including the Ballistic Missile Early Warning Station at RAF Fylingdales on the North York Moors to submit UFO data to HQ No 11 Group.

    His report says he could find no reports or mention [was] found of UFOs detected by ADGE [Air Defence Ground Environment] units or 11/18 Group aircraft using radar equipment.

    The Pascagoula UFO Incident: There Were More Witnesses

    The Pascagoula UFO Incident: There Were More Witnesses

    As Weird as it Gets - Part 4
    Serious UFO-related journalism has often been hard to come by via the conventional media, especially in the U.S., but recent events may encourage more credible reporting of the seemingly incredible.
    By Robert Barrow
    robert-barrow.blogspot.com
    Mike Cataldo, now long retired from the Navy, served in 1973 as a chief petty officer in Mississippi. Like most of the country, he was familiar with the Hickson-Parker report and never met or spoke with either man, but for all the years that followed he shared with friends and family another side to the story, something of vital significancethat he finally decided to impart publicly late last year. He tried to locate a reporter in Pascagoula who wrote the original UFO story, and eventually was put in touch with Natalie Chambers of the Associated Press.

    Chambers' interview with Cataldo appeared in The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal of October 21 last year, but it failed to make the coast-to-coast splash it should have, though even famed radio commentator Paul Harvey realized Cataldo's importance and devoted part of his Saturday, October 27 national broadcast to Natalie Chambers' shocker.

    "When Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker told the world in 1973 they were abducted by aliens while fishing on the Pascagoula River, few believed them," her article began. "Now, after 28 years, it appears they weren't alone in their experience on that October 11 night." Indeed, at about the same time and in the same area as the UFO incident, Cataldo and fellow crew mates Ted Peralta and Mack Hanna were driving on U.S. 90, heading to Ocean Springs. Cataldo was in the back seat.

    "We saw a very strange object in the horizon going from northeast across Highway 90," Cataldo recalled. "It was going pretty fast. It went down into a wood area and into the marsh. It hovered over the tree line. . .maybe a minute. We actually pulled off the road and watched it. We said, 'My God, what is that?'" Cataldo said the thing looked like a large tambourine with little lights flashing on it. "As quickly as we saw it, it just vanished." Some daylight still remained as dusk approached, so the men got a good look at the object. But Cataldo tells of a second sighting minutes later, this time in St. Andrews, as he neared his home. "It wasn't as high up as we saw the first time. It was real."

    Almost hyperventilating when he ran inside to tell his wife, Cataldo knew he had to tell Navy officials. As a member of the pre-commissioning crew of the USS Tunney, under construction at Ingalls Shipyard, he reported for work the next morning and immediately contacted his executive officer to make a statement. After the weekend, he contacted Keesler AFB in Biloxi and left his phone number. However, if Cataldo expected tea and sympathy, he was mistaken. "My executive officer and crew members thought we were just lunatics, just whacked out," he told Chambers. "It never came up again. Keesler never called or did anything."

    UFO researcher Kenny Young (Author's April, 2007 notation to this 2002 article: Mr. Young is now deceased) also contacted Cataldo following Natalie Chambers' article, also attempting - so far unsuccessfully -- to locate his two fellow Navy witnesses. Cataldo provided a few more details of the object, perhaps the most intriguing being that it "was less than half a mile away and looked as big as any big American airliner I've ever seen." He also confirmed that other motorists had slowed down to look at the seemingly inexplicable sky object. "We were the only ones on the road to stop and look at it though," he advised.

    Importantly, Cataldo admitted, "I never knew of the Hickson-Parker abduction until days later. It happened on Thursday and it was not until the following Sunday that I saw the headline in the morning paper about two men taken aboard a flying saucer, I'm telling you I about died." He emphasizes that he can't be absolutely sure that his UFO and the fishermen's were the same, but the place and time were so close that the relationship must surely be taken seriously.

    Alex Jones guest: Children have been kidnapped and sent to a slave colony on Mars

    Jones: “Well I don’t know about Mars bases, but I know they’ve created massive, thousands of different types of chimeras that are alien lifeforms on this earth now”

    Kinderen worden naar slavenkolonie op Mars gestuurd. Deze ex-CIA-medewerker zorgt voor opschudding met bizarre uitspraak

    From the June 29 edition of Genesis Communications Network’s The Alex Jones Show:

    ROBERT DAVID STEELE: This may strike your listeners as way out but we actually believe that there is a colony on Mars that is populated by children who were kidnapped and sent into space on a 20 year ride. So that once they get to Mars they have no alternative but to be slaves on the Mars colony. There’s all kinds of --

    ALEX JONES (HOST): Look, I know that 90 percent of the NASA missions are secret and I’ve been told by high level NASA engineers that you have no idea, there is so much stuff going on. But then it goes off into all that, that’s the kind of thing media jumps on. But I know this: we see a bunch of mechanical wreckage on Mars and people say, “Oh look, it looks like mechanics.” They go, “Oh, you’re a conspiracy theorist.” Clearly they don’t want us looking into what is happening. Every time probes go over they turn them off.

    Kinderen worden naar slavenkolonie op Mars gestuurd. Deze ex-CIA-medewerker zorgt voor opschudding met bizarre uitspraak

    Kinderen worden in het geheim ontvoerd en naar Mars gestuurd. Dat zei voormalig CIA-medewerker Robert David Steele tijdens een interview in de Alex Jones Show, melden diverse media.

    “Wij denken dat er een kolonie op Mars is die bestaat uit kinderen die ontvoerd zijn en 20 jaar in de ruimte moesten blijven,” zei Steele.

    “Op het moment dat ze aankomen op Mars zijn ze in feite slaven in de Marskolonie,” voegde hij toe.

    Geheim

    Presentator Alex Jones zei vervolgens dat hij weet dat 90 procent van alle NASA-missies geheim is en dat hij van hooggeplaatste medewerkers heeft gehoord dat er veel meer gebeurt dan we denken.

    Hij zei ook dat er wrakstukken waren gezien op Mars en dat mensen die daarover beginnen gelijk het stempel ‘complottheoreticus’ krijgen opgeplakt.

    “Ze willen duidelijk niet dat we onderzoeken wat er gebeurt,” zei Jones, die pas geleden nog werd geïnterviewd door NBC-presentatrice Megyn Kelly.

    Uitgeschakeld

    “Sondes die daar naartoe gaan worden elke keer uitgeschakeld,” vervolgde hij.

    De NASA liet in een reactie weten dat de ruimtevaartorganisatie niet beschikt over een slavenkolonie op de rode planeet.

    “Er zijn geen mensen op Mars,” liet de NASA bij monde van woordvoerder Guy Webster weten. “Er zijn wel rovers op Mars.”

    Bewijzen

    Eerder deze week zag het ruimteagentschap zich gedwongen te reageren op een virale video waarin werd geclaimd dat de NASA op het punt staat bewijzen van aliens vrij te geven.

    De ruimtevaartorganisatie beweerde geen informatie over de ontdekking van aliens achter te houden.

    The Milky Way is on a collision course with the Andromeda galaxy, and when the two colossal entities meet, they’ll shred each other apart.

    What remains less certain, however, is what will happen to each of the galaxies’ black holes — those cryptic places in space where gravity’s pull is so powerful, not even light can escape. Now, for the first time, scientists have observed two “supermassive” black holes orbiting each other in a galaxy unfathomably far away from Earth — 750 million light-years — providing a clue to our own galaxy’s smashing fate. The observations were published this week in The Astrophysical Journal.

    Inside this far-off galaxy, University of New Mexico scientists spotted two black holes and have been watching them closely for over a decade. They are huge, with a combined mass of 15 billion times our humble sun, and scientists estimate that it takes 24,000 years for these black masses to orbit one another. This presents a problem, because us Earthlings can’t possibly live long enough to glimpse the curving nature of their orbits.

    “The best way to detect orbital motion is to be able to see the curvature, but we would have to live 4,000 years,” the study’s lead author and astrophysicist Karishma Bansal, tells Inverse. “The process itself is slow — maybe after 1,000 years, but I won’t be here so I won’t know.”

    A false color image of the two massive black holes, as observed by the Very Large Array radio telescopes. Each black hole is surrounded by discs of orbiting matter, with jets of other matter shooting out atop and below.

    Measuring this curvature would be like trying to discern the travels of a snail in another solar system. “If you imagine a snail on the recently-discovered Earth-like planet orbiting Proxima Centauri — 4.243 light years away — moving at 1 centimeter per second, that’s the angular motion we’re resolving here,” said Roger W. Romani, a physics professor at Stanford University.

    Lacking immortality, Bansal and her team tried another tactic. She pinpointed the locations of both colossal galaxies, using a system of 10 radio telescopes placed across the U.S., collectively called the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA), and over a period of 12 years they measured how one galaxy moved in relation to the other. The plotted changes in position suggest that the two black holes, forced together by a convergence of galaxies, are orbiting one another, though the shape of their orbits remains unknown.

    Orbiting black holes are certainly intriguing, but scientists like Bansal wonder what happens next. The assumption is that these black holes will one day collide (a recurring theme in our universe), creating the rippling gravitational waves discovered in 2016 by a team of over 1,000 scientists, but there is no observable evidence of this collision occurring.

    Finding a more compact binary galaxy system — with two black holes that don’t take 24,000 years to orbit one another — could give researchers a better look into the behaviors of these orbiting mega-masses, perhaps an instance of two black holes orbiting each other, or even fusing together, or absorbing one another in some twisted, cosmic union. “If we manage to find something closer, that would be huge,” says Basnal. “That would tell us what would happen. Their fate – it’s a mystery.”

    An image from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory shows two galaxies colliding 140 million light-years from Earth.

    And this will show us what fate has in store for our galaxy, the Milky Way, as it’s on course for a consequential meeting with the billion-star Andromeda, though in, perhaps, one billion years.

    “They will rip one another apart, and the material around each other will merge,” explains Basnal. “Because they are both spiral galaxies, and are both so huge, they will distort the structure of one another.”

    As for the black holes, it remains to be known, but scientists are peering into the cosmos to find out. “That’s what’s cool about astronomy,” she says. “You get to see something about our own future.”

    Abstract: The radio galaxy 0402+379 is believed to host a supermassive black hole binary (SMBHB). The two compact-core sources are separated by a projected distance of 7.3 pc, making it the most (spatially) compact resolved SMBHB known. We present new multi-frequency VLBI observations of 0402+379 at 5, 8, 15, and 22 GHz and combine them with previous observations spanning 12 years. A strong frequency-dependent core shift is evident, which we use to infer magnetic fields near the jet base. After correcting for these shifts we detect significant relative motion of the two cores at at . With some assumptions about the orbit, we use this measurement to constrain the orbital period yr and SMBHB mass . While additional observations are needed to confirm this motion and obtain a precise orbit, this is apparently the first black hole system resolved as a visual binary.

    Ghost Rockets Over America: An Unusual, Early Military Pilot UFO Encounter

    Related image

    Something unusual was happening in the skies over Scandinavia in the summer of 1946.

    The July 12, 1946 edition of the London Daily Telegraph featured a report on this curious new phenomenon, which read as follows:

    For some weeks a fair number of ‘ghost rockets’ going from south-east to north-west have been reported from various parts of the eastern coast of Sweden. Eye witnesses say that they look like glowing balls and are followed by a tail of smoke more or less visible. So many reports cannot be put down to pure imagination in the matter. As there is no definite evidence that the phenomena are of meteoric origin, there is growing suspicion that they are a new kind of radio-controlled V-weapon on which experiments are carried out.”

    Of course, it might be assumed that one variety of these unusual aerial objects had already begun to turn up prior to the end of the war. Colorful reports of strange lights that dogged aircraft over parts of Europe would soon be known as “Foo Fighters,” of which at least a majority of reports could have entailed things like lightning sprites observed by pilots.

    However, while the “ghost rocket” craze was well underway in Europe and Scandinavia, a very different kind of rocket was being seen in other parts of the world.

    One of the most remarkable incidents involving an unidentified flying object, which occurred prior to the subject’s popularity coinciding with Kenneth Arnold’s 1947 sighting, involved Captain Jack Puckett, the assistant chief of flying safety, Tactical Air Command. On the morning of August 1, 1946, Puckett was piloting a twin engine C-47, and had left Langley Field for MacDill Air Force Base near Tampa, Florida.

    Puckett was thirty miles from his destination when what appeared to be a long, brightly illuminated object nearly collided with his C-47. Puckett filed an incident report after he landed, according to which he stated:

    [The aircraft] continued toward us on a collision course, at our exact altitude. At about 1,000 yards, it veered to cross our path. We observed it to be a long, cylindrical shape approximately twice the size of a B-29 bomber, with luminous portholes.”

    Puckett and his crew aboard the C-47 watched the object in amazement, until it disappeared over the horizon, traversing an estimated 100 miles over the course of three minutes.

    In my book The Ghost Rockets: Mystery Missiles and Phantom Projectiles in Our Skies, I note the rocket like functions of this unusual aircraft, in relation to rocket technologies that were being developed in Germany during the war:

    The object Puckett witnessed also produced a strange, sparkling tail, much like a rocket would; this detail would certainly present a lot of confusion among aviation officials at the time, in addition to increasing speculation about new kinds of technologies that might be under development elsewhere in the world. The technical information about rocketry advancements spearheaded in Nazi Germany during World War II, along with many of the leading experts in this field, were acquired by the British, Soviet, and American governments during and immediately following the war. America had previously gained access to V-2 rocket technology the Allies recovered at the Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp near Nordhausen, where an underground German rocket base known as the Mittelwerk factory, had been located. British forces managed to take away a wealth of information prior to the later Soviet occupation of the area. By late 1945, this information formed the basis of what became Operation Backfire, a program where British V-2 rockets were built and launched for purposes of demonstrating their capabilities.

    The significance of Puckett’s encounter goes beyond the mere recollection of a “mystery aircraft” for a number of reasons. For one, as mentioned earlier, this sighting took place well in advance (by almost a year) the sighting of objects over Mount Rainer, Washington, that sparked the eventual “flying saucer craze.” In addition to the sighting taking place prior to the swelling of reports that accompanied Kenneth Arnold’s initial UFO sightings over the northwest, the fact that the assistant chief of flying safety with Tactical Air Command would report an aircraft of this sort, and only months after the conclusion of the Second World War, would likely have been considered to be of sincere concern as far as national security; to have fabricated such a report would have meant severe repercussions for Puckett and his crew.

    Additionally, the object in question had initially been considered a meteor by Puckett and his crew, while still at a fair  distance from them. “This object continued toward us on a collision course at our exact altitude,” he continued in his incident report. “At about 1000 yards it veered to cross our path. We observed it to be a long, cylindrical shape approximately twice the size of a B-29, with luminous portholes.” It would seem unusual indeed that the pilot and crew would see a meteor, and then mistake the meteor as it traversed their altitude for being a massive aircraft of some kind, adorned with “luminous portholes”.

    Finally, the idea that the object had been a misidentification of some variety of natural phenomenon seems unusual, since Puckett and his crew’s description matched a number of similar UFO reports that would follow, most notably the famous 1948 Chiles and Whitted UFO encounter (dramatized in the image above), along with a similar observation that occurred shortly afterward in France.

    Granted, by the time the Chiles and Whitted sighting occurred, the “UFO craze” was already well underway. Indeed, Captain Jack Puckett’s unusual observation of a weird, “ghost rocket” over the American Southeast remains one of the most unusual, and perhaps significant observations of unexplained aerial activity in the modern era.

    Amerikaanse acteur bezocht door een alien. In dit interview doet hij een boekje open

    De Amerikaanse acteur Chris Colfer, vooral bekend door zijn rol van Kurt Hummel in de serie Glee, was onlangs te gast in The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon om zijn nieuwe boek te promoten.

    Tijdens het interview beweerde hij dat hij als kind getuige is geweest van een bovennatuurlijk fenomeen.

    Colfer vertelde aan presentator Jimmy Fallon dat hij al op jonge leeftijd gefascineerd was door buitenaardsen en zelfs naar Peru afreisde op zoek naar aliens.

    Hoestdrank

    Hij legde uit dat hij toen hij jonger was eens bezoek heeft gehad van een alien:

    “Toen ik nog een kind was, had ik bronchitis en was ik erg ziek,” zei hij. “Ik nam veel hoestdrank, dus misschien was het wel een hallucinatie.”

    “Ik werd midden in de nacht wakker en zag dat er aan mijn voeteneinde een kleine alien stond,” vervolgde hij.

    Telepathisch

    Colfer vertelde vervolgens hoe de alien telepathisch met hem communiceerde:

    “Ik was verrast en begon niet te schreeuwen,” zei hij. “Hij was zo schattig, ik kon het gewoon niet. Hij was zo lief en zei: ‘beterschap’.”

    Golden Globe

    Colfer won vanwege zijn rol in Glee een Golden Globe. Hij stond ook bovenaan de bestsellerslijst van de New York Times en stond in 2011 in de lijst van 100 meest invloedrijke mensen van Time Magazine.

    Houston, we have a problem' Apollo 13 mission notes up for auction

    THE flight plan for the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission which had to be drastically altered following the 'Houston, we have a problem' emergency on board has been unearthed.

    Apollo 13

    BNPS/GETTY

    The Apollo 13 mission set off on April 11, 1970

    The 352-page document bears the annotations made by all three crew members recording in detail the actions they had to take after an explosion ripped off part of their space ship.

    The mission notes include the crucial changes made to the flight plan that ensured the stricken craft defied the odds and returned to Earth rather than float out to space.

    It was presented by mission commander Jim Lovell, who was played by Tom Hanks in the 1995 movie Apollo 13, and fellow astronauts Fred Haise and Jack Swigert to the lead flight planner Robert 'Bob' Lindsey following their return.

    The front page of the plan carries a touching personal message from the trio, thanking Lindsey for putting together the 'perfect' flight plan.

    It reads: "To Bob - a truly perfect flight plan as far as we got. We know it would have led us by the hand the rest of the way also.

    "Thanks for this remarkable document which we carried to the moon on Odyssey 11 - 17 April 1970." 

    The flight plan has remained in the Lindsey family for the last 47 years and they have now decided to put it up for auction with an estimate price of £30,000.

    The mission notes include the crucial changes made to the flight plan

    The Apollo 13 mission which set off on April 11, 1970 was meant to culminate in a third moon landing, with Lovell and Haise voyaging to the lunar surface while Swigert orbited in the command module Odyssey. 

    But just under 56 hours into the mission, an oxygen tank explosion resulted in a major loss of electrical power to the command and service module, forcing the crew to cancel the lunar landing and move into the Aquarius lunar module.

    They used it as a lifeboat in order to survive a four day journey around the moon and return back to Earth. 

    With NASA experts working around the clock and under tremendous pressure, an alternate flight plan had to be rapidly developed which resulted in the safe return of the crew despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

    Just under 56 hours into the mission, an oxygen tank explosion resulted in a major loss of power

    The flight plan, which measures 8.5in by 10in, is divided into seven sections consisting of timelines, consumables and food logs.

    The notations in black felt-tip pen were by Lovell, in blue ball-point pen by Swigert and in pencil by Haise.

    There is an element of foreshadowing as a problem with the tank gauge is noted nine hours before the oxygen tank exploded.

    The pre-ordained flight plan for hours 55 to 56 - the time of the explosion - has been crossed out with annotations made in haste as alternative plans were developed in light of the disastrous event.

    The meal log at the back of the flight plan was altered because the loss of power caused by the explosion meant they could not boil water to rehydrate food.

    Cassandra Hatton, vice president of the books and manuscripts department of auctioneers Sotheby's, said: "It has really been exciting for me going through the flight plan page by page to see how much of the mission had to be scrapped since they didn't land.

    "You can see all the new calculations, the new plans and the new procedures they had to follow to make it back alive.

    "When you go through the flight plan you can foreshadow the explosion since there are references to a problem with the oxygen tank in the hours before the explosion.

    "When you look at the meal log at the back of the flight plan you can see how big a problem it was when they lost power because they could not boil water to rehydrate their food.

    "They had no food, no water, no power. It's incredible that they made it back to the earth with the on the fly procedures.

    "Going through the flight plan you realise how well trained and prepared the astronauts and ground control were to survive despite all the obstacles.

    "Page by page you live the mission with them. I was very tense reading it.

    "This is an incredible primary document of the most dramatic and harrowing mission of the Apollo program.

    "The importance of this document can not be overstated." The drama that unfolded during the Apollo 13 mission was re-told in the Hollywood film starring Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon as Swigert and the late Bill Paxton as Haise.

    However, the film is inaccurate when it shows the astronauts ripping off the front cover of the flight plan to clean a filter as the actual flight plan's front cover is still intact. 

    Instead a lunar module cue card was used to do the job.

    The auction takes place on July 20.

    Scientists create AI which can READ MINDS

    RESEARCHERS have developed artificial intelligence which has the ability to ‘READ MINDS’, according to a new study.

    AI created which can read minds

    Scientists from the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) are now able to use brain activation patterns to identify complex thoughts and their roots.

    The ‘mind reading’ technology shows that the brain forms complex thoughts through various sub-systems and are not word-based.

    The research carried out by CMU’s Marcel Just offers fresh evidence that the basics of concept representation are universal and not specific to language.

    Professor Just said: "One of the big advances of the human brain was the ability to combine individual concepts into complex thoughts, to think not just of 'bananas,' but 'I like to eat bananas in evening with my friends’.

    CMU

    GETTY

    The computer predicted the brain activity

    "We have finally developed a way to see thoughts of that complexity in the fMRI signal. 

    “The discovery of this correspondence between thoughts and brain activation patterns tells us what the thoughts are built of.”

    The study revealed that the brains coding of complex sentences, such as "The witness shouted during the trial”, uses an alphabet of 42 meaning components and triggers activity in the brain relating to person, setting, size, social interaction and physical action of the items involved in a given sentence.

    mind reading

    GETTY

    "This advance makes it possible for the first time to decode thoughts containing several concepts."

    Each bit of information is processed in a different region of the brain which allowed the computer, which used machine learning algorithms, to predict what type of thoughts are being conjured.

    The scientists used seven adult participants and asked them to think of 240 pre-agreed sentences.

    By monitoring the brains using fMRI scans the machine was able to predict with 89 per cent accuracy what features were being left out of a sentence.

    Prof Just added: "Our method overcomes the unfortunate property of fMRI to smear together the signals emanating from brain events that occur close together in time, like the reading of two successive words in a sentence. 

    "This advance makes it possible for the first time to decode thoughts containing several concepts. That’s what most human thoughts are composed of."

    "A next step might be to decode the general type of topic a person is thinking about, such as geology or skateboarding. 

    “We are on the way to making a map of all the types of knowledge in the brain."

    IMPACT of asteroid that will approach Earth in 2029 ‘CANNOT be ruled out’

    AN asteroid is set to whizz past Earth in 2029 and experts have warned that it may hit the planet in the future.

    asteroid 1

    GETTY

    IMPACT of asteroid that will approach Earth in 2029 ‘CANNOT be ruled out’

    Astronomers have calculated the Apophis asteroid will speed past Earth on April 13, 2029, at just 18,600 miles away – a hair’s width in astronomical terms. To put that into perspective, the moon is 238,900 miles away.

    Due to the close proximity in which the giant space rock will pass, scientists believe the near-miss will alter the asteroid’s orbit, which could lead it to collide with Earth in the future.

    If the 27 billion kg asteroid were to hit Earth, scientists calculate that it would leave a crater over a mile wide and a staggering 518 metres deep.

    However, most worryingly, the impact would be equivalent to 880 million tons of TNT being detonated – some 65,000 times as powerful as the nuclear bomb which was dropped on Hiroshima.

    asteroid 2

    GETTY

    The asteroid weights 27 billion kilograms

    The next time the asteroid is set to pass Earth after 2029 is 2036.

    Alberto Cellino of the Observatory of Turin in Italy, told Astrowatch: “We can rule out a collision at the next closest approach with the Earth, but then the orbit will change in a way that is not fully predictable just now, so we cannot predict the behaviour on a longer timescale.” 

    asteroid 3

    GETTY

    "We cannot predict the behaviour on a longer timescale.”

    However, Alan Harris, a former NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), says Apophis has a negative “Palermo Scale” – a negative Palermo Scale indicates less of an impact risk with asteroids.

    Mr Harris said: "Apophis has a Palermo Scale rating of about minus three, so while we cannot rule out an impact in the future, it is about 1,000 times less likely than a random impact in the same interval of time. 

    “Due to a close but non-impacting pass by the Earth, there are numerous possible impact trajectories beyond that, but all are of very low probability.”

    SPACE BREAKTHROUGH: Wormholes to other galaxies could exist in Milky Way

    A WORMHOLE could exist within our Milky Way which could help space farers travel to other parts of the universe, it has been revealed.

    wormhole milky way

    GETTY

    A wormhole could exist in the Milky Way

    Wormholes have long been considered to exist only in the realms of science fiction, but some physicists believe the theoretical portals could be real, and there could be one relatively close by.

    Wormholes, which were predicted by Einstein in his theory of General Relativity, are areas where space and time are bent to manipulate the distance.

    It would take a huge mass to produce the manipulation of spacetime, and no natural examples have ever been found.

    However, experts from the International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste, Italy, say they are possible, and could be hiding within dark matter inside the Milky Way.

    wormhole

    GETTY

    Wormholes are a manipulation of space and time

    Professor Paulo Salucci, said: "If we combine the map of the dark matter in the Milky Way with the most recent Big Bang model to explain the universe, and we hypothesise the existence of space-time tunnels, what we get is that our galaxy could really contain one of these tunnels, and that the tunnel could even be the size of the galaxy itself.

    wormhole

    GETTY

    "Our result is very important because it confirms the possible existence of wormholes"

    "But there's more. We could even travel through this tunnel, since, based on our calculations, it could be navigable. Just like the one we've all seen in the recent film ‘Interstellar'."

    Scientists had believed any wormholes which exist in the universe could simply be the size of a pin prick.

    However, the team of astrophysicists say the one in our galaxy could be big enough to fit a spaceship which could traverse the cosmos, as they would likely exist in other spiral galaxies.

    Prof Salucci, continued: "Obviously we're not claiming that our galaxy is definitely a wormhole, but simply that, according to theoretical models, this hypothesis is a possibility.”

    The paper published in the Annals of Physics, read: "Our result is very important because it confirms the possible existence of wormholes in most of the spiral galaxies.

    "Dark matter may supply the fuel for constructing and sustaining a wormhole. Hence, wormholes could be found in nature and our study may encourage scientists to seek observational evidence for wormholes in the galactic halo region."

    Wormgaten naar andere sterrenstelsels in de Melkweg. Gaan deze mysterieuze tunnels ons naar verre oorden brengen?

    Volgens een nieuwe studie kunnen we net als in de film Interstellar door dit soort wormgaten reizen.

    Het moet mogelijk zijn om via wormgaten in een oogwenk van de ene plek in het heelal naar de andere te reizen.

    Supermassief zwart gat

    Wetenschappers schrijven over de vondst in het tijdschrift Annals of Physics.

    Volgens Italiaanse onderzoekers kan een supermassief zwart gat in het hart van de Melkweg een wormgat zijn.

    De wetenschappers, die hun conclusie hebben gebaseerd op ingewikkelde wiskundige modellen, zeggen dat de poort gemaakt kan zijn van donkere materie, een onzichtbare en mysterieuze substantie waar naar schatting een kwart van het heelal uit bestaat.

    Groot genoeg

    “Ons sterrenstelsel kan één van deze tunnels bevatten,” zei professor Paulo Salucci van de internationale school voor geavanceerde studies SISSA in Triëst.

    “Deze tunnel kan net zo groot zijn als de Melkweg zelf. We kunnen door de tunnel reizen, net als in de film Interstellar,” voegde hij toe.

    Het wormgat in de Melkweg is waarschijnlijk groot genoeg voor een ruimteschip, zo denkt het onderzoeksteam.

    Drijvende kracht

    “We beweren niet dat ons sterrenstelsel een wormgat is, maar op basis van onze modellen behoort deze hypothese zeker tot de mogelijkheden,” aldus Salucci.

    Hij vermoedt dat ook andere sterrenstelsels zoals Andromeda wormgaten bevatten.

    “Wij zeggen dat spiraalvormige sterrenstelsels mogelijk wormgaten bevatten. Donkere materie kan de drijvende kracht zijn achter de vorming van zo’n wormgat,” aldus het team.

    STRANGE DIAMOND SHAPED OBJECT SPOTTED NEAR TORNADO OVER VIRGINIA

     

    Garcia Doores was driving along Route 28 in Virginia in the USA on June 23 this year when something strange appeared in the sky causing Doores to stop and pull over. She then took some photographs of what seemed to be a tornado in the sky with an object that was shaped like a diamond next to it.

    TORNADO SEEMED TO BE SPAWNED FROM DIAMOND SHAPED OBJECT IN SKY  

    It would be very unusual for a cloud to take on the perfect shape of a diamond she said. As seen in the photographs it certainly does look like a perfect diamond shape. Other people have said the same thing and they have said that perhaps what she captured on the photo was a man-made object that was perhaps used for manipulating and altering the weather.  

    Other people have suggested that perhaps it is a weather weapon that has the ability to be able to make, steer and even trigger tornadoes, but why would someone want to do such a thing?

    WEST VIRGINIA IS POPULAR PLACE FOR UFO SIGHTINGS

    West Virginia seems to be a popular region for UFO reports. In January of this year in Parkersburg, a man was out and about looking at the stars with a new telescope and he took a break after trying to focus in on a different star. He then saw a black object that was diamond shaped which had three yellow lights that were static and the craft was moving slowly over the sky at about 9.30pm. Many more sightings of strange objects in the sky have been reported in the West Virginia region, including in Buckhannon, Saint Albans, Clay County and Bluefield.

    THIS RUSSIAN SATELLITE WILL BE THE BRIGHTEST STAR IN THE SKY, LAUNCH ON JULY 14, 2017

    A Russian satellite with the name of Mayak, which when translated into English means Beacon, will be launched into space in just two weeks’ time and when it does it will be the brightest star up in the sky at night.

    SCIENTISTS AND ASTRONOMERS THINK SATELLITE COULD HAVE NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES

    The goal of Russia is to make the satellite unique and they have done this by using a material that is reflective. However, there are some scientists who have given out warnings that the coating may have some negative consequences.  

    The Russian satellite is only about the size of the typical loaf of bread and it is a CubeSat. Russia is going to launch the satellite on a Soyuz 2.1v vehicle on 14 July and it will be sent from Baikonur Cosmodrome, which is in Kazakhstan and it will be a secondary payload.

    SATELLITE PROJECT RAISED $30,000 ON CROWDSOURCING WEBSITE

    The project had been headed by the Moscow State Mechanical Engineering University and they managed to raise over $30,000 on Boomstarter, a crowdfunding website in Russia.

    Once the satellite is in orbit, which will be around 600 kilometers, it has been designed to unfurl a huge solar reflector that is a giant pyramid shape. Russia said that the goal of the satellite is for it to shine much brighter than any star currently in the night sky. To ensure that it does they made a reflector out of Mylar and it spans 16 square meters. The Mylar reflector is about 20 times thinner than the hair on the head of a human. The satellite's mission is also going to show off technology, this is a test of how to brake a satellite once it is in orbit and then de-orbiting it.

    The leader of the project Alexander Shaenko said that they wanted to be able to show that exploring space is both interesting and exciting; along with the fact that today space exploration is open to anyone who is interested. The sole mission of Mayak is to shine brightly in the night sky and remove satellites from the orbit of Earth that is defunct.

    SATELLITE COULD BE AS BRIGHT AS THE MOON

    The project is at risk of scientific and environmental group backlash; depending of course just how bright the satellite really is when in orbit. Some have suggested that perhaps it could be as brightly shining as the Moon. If it were to be excessively bright then it may cause trouble for astronomers as they rely on a dark sky to be able to view the universe. One astronomer and former deputy director from the Northumberland Kielder Observatory said that astronomers fight hard for dark skies around the globe. He went on to say that the possibility of it potentially being ruined by ridiculous crowdfunded nonsense turns his heart to despair.

    While there may be many who are skeptical about the launch of the satellite, they will not keep it from being launched. The Mayak satellite is going into space on 14 July and for now, the only thing astronomers can do is pray that it will not be too bright.

    Image of strange blue orb over Merrimack, New Hampshire confuse witnesses

    A photograph that shows a strange blue orb has people questioning what that strange light in the sky over Merrimack in New Hampshire.


    Trish Wilson sent in the above photo to NH1 News asking, "What is this?" NH1 meteorologists took a look at the photo and said it looked like some sort of refraction of light from the sun interacting with the clouds.

    Along with NH1 News, Wilson also sent the photo over to UFO Sightings Hotspot. They said the object was most likely a lens flare, pointing out that it looks very similar to one captured on a NASA camera on June 11. It can be seen in the video below around the 31 minute mark, reports NH1 News.

    Indeed, I have discussed with Trish about this sighting and as NH1 News reported, in my opinion rather than a UFO sighting the blue orb is a typically lens flare, characteristic by the white dots visible especially in these kind of lens flares.

    Though it is understandable that there is much confusion about this type of lens flare given the fact that almost every day people submit images of lens flares to the Mufon network wondering if they have photographed a UFO or not.
    Above images show the NASA-ISS lens flare as well as similar lens flares captured in Ontario, Canada and Alta, Utah, this year.

    Zimbabwe UFO Child Conactee Speaks Publicly For The 1st Time

    https://youtu.be/jaLvp-BkqAo

    Emily was only a few feet away from the beings and believes she was given messages.

    One of the most outstanding UFO experiences involving a group of children took place on September 16, 1994. Approximately 60 children between 5 and 12 years old were playing outside their school on the outskirts of the capital of Zimbabwe when they saw a large spaceship and several smaller craft gliding over the scrubland.

    The spacecraft landed beside their playground. The children claim that they were approached by beings from the ships and that the whole encounter lasted about 15 minutes.

    Emily Trim was one of those children. As a young student at the Ariel primary school near the town of Ruwa in Zimbabwe,  the incident was made famous when it was covered by the BBC, who interviewed the children soon after the incident. Harvard psychiatrist Dr. John Mack traveled to the school to interview the children and recorded their extraordinary accounts.

    To this day, she says, the incident still affects her. Standing only a few feet away from the beings she believes that she was given messages.

    She has been painting and drawing mysterious and beautiful images she feels are a manifestation of the messages she received.

    In this video, Emily Trim speaks publicly of the first time at the Alien Cosmic Expo 2015. Her emotional testimony conveys the depth of her personally moving experience as a child who was face to face with an extraterrestrial being.

    EMN apologizes for the sound issues. Best heard through headphones or earbuds. Transcription is below.

    Here below is the original 1994 BBC video interview by Dr. John Mack of those young children at the Ariel primary school near the town of Ruwa in Zimbabwe.

    Copyright Earth Mystery News 2015

    I was a witness from the Ruwa, Zimbabwe event. I was just over 8 years old when this happened. I was born in Canada. I’m from a family of five. I have a brother and a sister. My brother was also at the school during the time of the event. My parents are missionaries for the Salvation Army. That’s why we were down in Ruwa Zimbabwe. We were in Zaire before that, then went to Zim, and we all attended Ariel, which was a lovely school. I’m really thankful for that experience, putting aside the UFO phenomenon. It was a beautiful place to live and to be.

    So, on that day … I can only speak about my perspective and where I was. Every child was in a different area of the playground. But it was recess and broad daylight … and we were just doing our normal thing … playing games. There were boundary lines along the property and one of the games my friend and I used to play was hopping on the boundary lines.

    Then we heard a high pitch frequency sound, and — out side perspective — we saw a flash and a craft.

    And it’s really hard to describe time at this point, so I don’t know how long this all happened. All I can tell you is that two beings were hopping along beside Lisa and I. And … they were curious. They weren’t touching the ground [inaudible] … they were almost like mimicking us.

    All of a sudden they were in front of us. I describe them as being about arm’s reach. And we were frozen. Telepathic images started going across my face … communication through the eyes … that’s all I can really describe it as. It was just image after image after image.

    One of the other girls standing beside me, she got more communication about the environment, and, for me, mine was more technology uses and [inaudible] uses of technology.

    [Moderator speaks clearly, no need for transcription.]

    I’ll just … I’ll never forget that day.

    Question from the audience: Have you had any other experiences with the same being?

    Emily: I don’t know if it’s the exact same being, but what I can say … Yes.

    [Emily describing one of her paintings:] So when we were talking about the time (of the event, which) I depicted here. I don’t know when I’m going to realize what I’m drawing. It just comes out. For me, it’s like an energy that’s all around us that’s causing time to stop at that point. [inaudible, including description of the feeling of being frozen.]

    Question from the audience: Could you explain what the other beings that have been coming to her, as far as you know, look like.

    Emily: You mean when I’m having experiences? [Yes.] I’ll just say that they can alter perception so they can change to make you almost feel a bit more comfortable with what you’ve seen. The last encounter there were grays. A face went back and forth between a being and lion.

    [Moderator speaks.]”

    FRENCH VERSION

    «Je fus témoin de l’événement Ruwa, au Zimbabwe. J’étais un peu plus de 8 ans, quand cela est arrivé. Je suis née au Canada. Je suis d’une famille de cinq personnes. J’ai un frère et une soeur. Mon frère a également été à l’école pendant le temps de l’événement. Mes parents sont missionnaires pour l’Armée du Salut. Voilà pourquoi nous étions à Ruwa Zimbabwe. Nous étions au Zaïre avant cela, puis nous sommes allés à Zim, et nous avons tous assisté à Ariel, qui était une belle école. Je suis vraiment reconnaissant pour cette expérience, en mettant de côté le phénomène OVNI. Ce fut un bel endroit pour vivre et d’être.
    Donc, ce jour-là … Je ne peux que parler de mon point de vue et où je me trouvais. Chaque enfant se trouvait dans une autre zone de l’aire de jeux. Mais il était évidement et plein jour … et nous étions juste en train de faire notre truc normal … jouer à des jeux. Il y avait des lignes de démarcation le long de la propriété et l’un des jeux mon ami et moi l’habitude de jouer a été sautillant sur les lignes de démarcation.
    Ensuite, nous avons entendu une fréquence sonore élevé, et – perspective sur côté – nous avons vu un flash et un métier.
    Et il est vraiment difficile de décrire le temps à ce moment, donc je ne sais pas combien de temps tout cela est arrivé. Tout ce que je peux vous dire est que deux êtres sautillaient le long côté Lisa et I. Et … ils étaient curieux. Ils ne touchent pas le sol [inaudible] … ils étaient presque comme nous imiter.
    Tout d’un coup, ils étaient en face de nous. Je les décris comme étant sur la portée de la main. Et nous avons été gelés. images télépathiques commencé à aller sur mon visage … la communication à travers les yeux … qui est tout ce que je peux vraiment le décrire comme. Il était juste image après image après image.
    L’une des autres filles, debout à côté de moi, elle a obtenu plus de communication sur l’environnement, et, pour moi, le mien était plus d’utilisations de la technologie et [inaudible] utilisations de la technologie.
    [Modérateur parle clairement, pas besoin de transcription.]
    Je vais juste … Je ne l’oublierai jamais ce jour-là.
    Question du public: Avez-vous eu d’autres expériences avec le même être?
    Emily: Je ne sais pas si c’est le même être exact, mais ce que je peux dire … Oui.
    [Emily décrivant une de ses peintures:] Ainsi, lorsque nous parlions du temps (de l’événement, qui) je peignais ici. Je ne sais pas quand je vais réaliser ce que je dessine. Il sort juste. Pour moi, il est comme une énergie qui est tout autour de nous qui est la cause de temps pour arrêter à ce moment-là. [Inaudible, y compris la description du sentiment d’être gelé.]
    Question du public: Pourriez-vous expliquer ce que les autres êtres qui viennent à elle, aussi loin que vous le savez, ressemblent.
    Emily: Tu veux dire quand je vais avoir des expériences? [Oui.] Je vais juste dire qu’ils peuvent changer la perception afin qu’ils puissent changer pour vous faire presque sentir un peu plus à l’aise avec ce que vous avez vu. La dernière rencontre, il y avait des gris. Un visage allait et venait entre un être et le lion.
    [Modérateur parle.] “

    SCIENTIST: Civilizations on Mars NUKED Into Oblivion! Totally WIPED OUT! Nukes On Mars? Dr. John Brandenburg called a “Pseudoscientist” swears it’s true! Is DR. JOHN BRANDENBURG the king of pseudoscience? Many people think so, but what’s interesting is that DR. JOHN BRANDENBURG has impressive credentials yet he is way out there. He was speaker at the SECRET SPACE PROGRAM CONFERENCE 2015 – a conference that asks: “What’s going on?” That’s a good question! ‘The Martian surface is covered with a thin layer of radioactive substances including uranium, thorium and radioactive potassium – and this pattern radiates from a hot spot on Mars,’ Dr. John Brandenburg told Fox News at the time. And bizarre as it sounds he believes that ancient Martians known as Cydonians and Utopians were massacred in the attack! ‘A nuclear explosion could have sent debris all around the planet.’

    He gave a talk at 2014 Annual Fall Meeting of the American Physical Society in Illinois on this very subject.
    “Scientists used to think it was a naturally occurring explosion, but Brandenburg says that nuclear isotopes in the atmosphere resembling hydrogen bomb tests ‘may present an example of civilization wiped out by a nuclear attack from space.”

    Dr. Brandenburg has dedicated his career to problems of space, energy and national defense. He is the author of “Life and Death on Mars: The New Mars Synthesis” in which in the words of one reviewer, “But the drama of Brandenburg’s book is his discussion of the nuclear catastrophe that turned the once ‘earth like’ planet into a wasteland…”

     He has studied the ‘high concentration’ of Xenon-129 in the Martian atmosphere, and uranium and thorium on the surface, spotted by Nasa’s Mars Odyssey spacecraft. Scientists have previously pointed about that the appearance of these elements is not surprising, as they are natural elements found everywhere.

    A scientist is to present his theory that ancient life on Mars was massacred. Dr He says there is evidence for two nuclear explosions on Mars.

    John E. Brandenburg is a plasma physicist at Orbital Technologies in Madison Wisconsin, working on space plasma technologies and space propulsion.

    On the blog BAD Science entitled “Exposing PseudoAstronomy” Stuart Robbins challenges his credibility : “One of the more unique things about Dr. Brandenburg among pseudoscientists is that one of his major claims of evidence that his ideas are correct is that he claims he presents at scientific conferences, and no one challenges him. I have heard him make that claim multiple times in practically every interview I have heard him give.”

    Stuart Robbins has a point. Listen to what Dr Brandenburg said at the conference: ‘The earlier result of a nuclear massacre stands,’ he said. “However, for this conference paper I chose to focus on the most important part of the hypothesis, the enormous nuclear explosions, which is the most extraordinary new evidence of past intelligent activity on Mars. My goal is establish the reality of the explosions to the scientific community, and their non-natural origin, and then focus on their targets. Rest assured the whole hypothesis will be discussed tomorrow. I will be waving around copies of my book: Death on Mars.’

    Dr Brandenburg also claims he came up with the hypothesis that Mars was once covered in an ocean, which Nasa recently announced. ‘This is a fine old blood feud on Mars,’ he added about NASA!

    From his website here are his credentials: 

    DR. JOHN BRANDENBURG is a plasma physicist working as a consultant at Morningstar Applied Physics LLC and as a part-time instructor of Astronomy, Physics and Mathematics at Madison College, and other learning institutions in Madison, Wisconsin.

    He previously worked at Orbital Technologies on space plasma technologies, nuclear fusion, and advanced space propulsion. He is the principle inventor of the MET (Microwave Electro-Thermal) plasma thruster using water propellant for space propulsion. He has worked on: SDI, the Clementine Mission to the Moon, Rocket Plume-Regolith Interactions on the Moon and Mars, Vortex theory of Rocket engine design and the combined Sakharov-Kaluza-Klein theory of Field Unification for purposes of space propulsion and Mars science.

    Dr. Brandenburg has authored the popular science books Life and Death on Mars (2010), Beyond Einstein’s Unified Field (2011) and Dead Mars, Dying Earth (1999) with Monica  Paxson. He has written two science fiction novels under the pen name “Victor Norgarde”: Morningstar Pass The Collapse of the UFO Coverup and Asteroid 20-2012 Sepulveda.

    From the SECRET SPACE PROGRAM CONFERENCE 2015 website:  a conference that asks: “What’s going on?”

    Is there a Secret Space Program being developed outside the public eye using funds allocated by congress for purposes of creating a completely separate economic system? Where are the missing budget trillions? What is the UFO phenomenon? Is it a series of military projects using this advanced technology developed in underground bases around the globe or does it represent something completely unknown and alien to human reality? Discover the new evidence and shocking findings that show why, as public space programs like NASA languish in debt, delays and failure, the development of space rages on by an untouchable, elite cabal unhindered by public accountability or congressional oversight. 

    From his book jacket: 

    Now the whole truth about Mars can be told: Mars once lived as the Earth now lives, and became the home of a humanoid civilization. Then, apparently, someone else, far more advanced, came and destroyed Mars utterly with a massive nuclear blast, that left a “radiation scar” on Mars, filled the atmosphere with telltale isotopic residues, and irradiated its surface with high energy neutrons. That is the best hypothesis that can be made now. We must go to Mars and find out, in depth, what exactly happened there and how to avoid it happening to our own Earth. Life and Death on Mars is the story of this “great and terrible discovery of the age,” how it was made in the icy depths of the Cold War, its basic evidences, and what this discovery now requires of us.

    We Haven't Found Extraterrestrial Life, Says NASA

    Yesterday we brought you the rather odd news that hacking group Anonymous thought NASA was going to announce they’d found intelligent alien life.

    Anyone with an ounce of common sense hopefully quickly realized there was nothing to this story. And note, it probably wasn't even the “official” Anonymous group, if there is such a thing. But for good measure, NASA has come out and debunked it anyway.

    “Contrary to some reports, there’s no pending announcement from NASA regarding extraterrestrial life,” Thomas Zurbuchen, Associate Administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, said on Twitter.

    “Are we alone in the universe? While we do not know yet, we have missions moving forward that may help answer that fundamental question,” he added in another tweet.

    Of course, if you’re one to believe alien conspiracy theories, you’re probably not going to believe this statement from Zurbuchen. So take our word for it that this is all just some weird baloney spread by some guy or girl claiming to be part of Anonymous.

    Zurbuchen is right, though. Whether we’re alone in the universe is still an open question. But we’re getting closer to answering it. In our own Solar System, we’ve found a few places – oceans under the surface of Europa and Enceladus, for instance – that might be good places for microbial life.

    Elsewhere, we’re finding more and more planets that could be habitable. In the coming years, we’re going to be able to study the atmospheres of some of these planets, and hopefully find out if they have any biosignatures.

    And there are also several searches underway for intelligent alien life. The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) has been looking for signals for decades. More recently, the Breakthrough Listen project – funded by Russian billionaire Yuri Milner – has also joined the hunt.

    The fact is, though, that we simply haven’t found anything yet. There’s no NASA-funded project looking for intelligent life, so if we did stumble across a signal, it would be one of the two aforementioned private endeavors.

    That we haven’t found any life is a bit of a quandary, known as the Fermi Paradox. Planets seem to be pretty abundant in the universe, so why haven’t we found any other life yet? The answer is either we’re alone, or we haven’t looked hard enough yet.

    No intelligent aliens are going to be making their way undetected into the Solar System anytime soon, though. If an alien ship does arrive on our doorstop, we’ll probably know about it. For now, we’re alone – and that’s kind of terrifying in its own right.

    U.S. fighter pilot: 'I was ordered to fire 24 rockets at UFO flying over East Anglia' ( 2008 )

    Former US Air Force fighter pilot Milton Torres is convinced he had an encounter with an alien spaceship in the skies over England in the 1950s.

    He was warned to keep quiet about the incident, but eventually talked about it 31 years later, the newly-released Ministry of Defence files show.

    On the night of May 20 1957, Dr Torres, then aged 25, was on standby at RAF Manston in Kent when he received an urgent order to scramble.

    He was told to intercept a UFO with "very unusual flight patterns" over East Anglia that ground radar operators had been tracking for some time.

    It was so cloudy he could not see anything, but the object showed up clearly on his radar as similar in size to a B-52 bomber.

    He was then ordered to fire a full salvo of 24 rockets at the object - something that came as a sobering shock to him.

    Milton Torres

    American fighter pilot Milton Torres was ordered to shoot down a suspected UFO in 1957 over East Anglia

    But before he could carry out this instruction the UFO suddenly darted off and disappeared from his scope in a matter of seconds.

    The next day a man claiming to be from the US National Security Agency threatened him with losing his flying status if he told anyone what happened.

    Dr Torres, now 77 and living in Miami, Florida, said he was flying at about Mach 0.92, while the UFO was travelling at over Mach 10.

    He said: "I think it was an alien spacecraft. It had a propulsion system that was beyond us - either magnetism or anti-gravity."

    Until 1967 the MoD had a policy of destroying UFO files every five years because they were considered of "transitory interest".

    This means the incident could have vanished without a trace had Dr Torres not been moved to mention it at a USAF veterans reunion in 1988.

    The retired civil engineering professor urged people with more information about the strange encounter to come forward.

    "There are people who are still alive on Earth who know about this. I'm talking about the RAF, USAF, whatever," he said.

    Dr David Clarke, a UFO expert and journalism lecturer, suspects the US military may have been testing a top-secret machine designed to project phantom aircraft on to Soviet radar.

    "I think the most likely explanation is that he was basically a pawn in some sort of exercise involving electronic spoofing warfare," he said.

    Close encounters: Numerous UFOs have been sighted above the UK skies

    But Dr Torres remains convinced what he saw on the radar came from beyond our solar system, insisting: "This is something that's not man-made."

    Secret MoD documents released for the first time also show how the captain of Flight AZ 284 had a similar close encounter to Milton Torres.

    As the pilot began his descent into Heathrow, he saw something alarming overhead.

    Shaped like a missile, the object suddenly veered across the airliner's path causing the pilot to shout 'Look out!' as he attempted to avert a mid-air collision 22,000ft above the Kent countryside.

    Travelling at an estimated 120mph, it passed less than 1,000ft from the passenger jet before disappearing from radar screens, leaving the pilot and accident investigators baffled.

    The documents reveal that Ministry of Defence staff accept that an Unidentified Flying Object zooming above Lydd caused the near miss.

    The incident took place at 7.58pm on April 21, 1991, and was investigated by the Civil Aviation Authority and military experts.

    Having ruled out the possibility of it being a missile, weather balloon or space rocket, the MoD was forced to conclude that it was a genuine UFO and close the inquiry.

    The unexplained close encounter is one of many recounted in military UFO documents released today by the National Archives.

    The Alitalia aircraft was on a routine flight from Milan to Heathrow with 57 people on board when the ten-foot long object, which had no exhaust flame, was spotted by pilot Achille Zaghetti. 

    He told accident investigators: 'I saw for about 3.4 seconds a flying object, very similar to a missile, light brown coloured.

    'At once I said, "Look out, look out" to my co-pilot, who saw what I had seen.

    'As soon as the object crossed us I asked the ACC (area control centre) operator if he saw something on his screen and he answered, "I see an unknown target 10nm ( nautical miles) behind you".'

    At 10.25pm that night there was a report to Brentwood police in Essex of a dark flying object in the sky which had no engine noise or lights.

    Southern TV also broadcast a story about a 14-year-old boy who reported seeing a missile flying at low level before climbing through the cloud and disappearing on the same evening.

    Radar images of the object showed that the UFO was initially labelled 'cruise missile??' but checks on Army firing ranges and U.S. and British naval ships established that it was not a military weapon or 'space related' activity.

    On July 2 a secret MoD report concluded: 'These departments have not been able to confirm the identity of the object sighted by the Alitalia crew.

    'In the absence of any clear evidence which could be used to identify the object, it is our intention to treat this sighting like that of any other Unidentified Flying Object and therefore we will not be undertaking any further investigation into the sighting.' 

    Other incidents recorded in military files the same year include a 'wingless projectile' seen on June 17, 1991.

    graphic

    Four passengers on board a Boeing 737 saw it pass beneath the airliner as it climbed from Gatwick Airport headed for Hamburg.

    Gatwick air traffic controllers were alerted but said they were 'unaware of anything unusual occurring at that time'.

    A weather balloon had been released in the area around this time, but the description and timing did not match the wingless object, according to military files.

    On July 15 the crew of a Britannia Airways 737 descending into Gatwick at 14,000ft reported seeing a 'small black lozenge-shaped object' travelling at high speed just 100 yards from the aircraft.

    Air traffic control confirmed a 'primary contact' visible on the radar ten nautical miles behind the 737 travelling at 120mph.

    Immediately air traffic controllers warned a following aircraft to turn left to avoid the object, although the pilot said he never saw it.

    An investigation completed in April 1992 was unable to explain the incident but suggested the unidentified object could have been an escaped balloon.

    The files are available online for the first time at http://ufos.nationalarchives.gov.uk/.

    Ghost Rockets Over America: An Unusual, Early Military Pilot UFO Encounter

    Image result for foto ghost rocket sweden

    Something unusual was happening in the skies over Scandinavia in the summer of 1946.

    The July 12, 1946 edition of the London Daily Telegraph featured a report on this curious new phenomenon, which read as follows:

    For some weeks a fair number of ‘ghost rockets’ going from south-east to north-west have been reported from various parts of the eastern coast of Sweden. Eye witnesses say that they look like glowing balls and are followed by a tail of smoke more or less visible. So many reports cannot be put down to pure imagination in the matter. As there is no definite evidence that the phenomena are of meteoric origin, there is growing suspicion that they are a new kind of radio-controlled V-weapon on which experiments are carried out.”

    Of course, it might be assumed that one variety of these unusual aerial objects had already begun to turn up prior to the end of the war. Colorful reports of strange lights that dogged aircraft over parts of Europe would soon be known as “Foo Fighters,” of which at least a majority of reports could have entailed things like lightning sprites observed by pilots.

    However, while the “ghost rocket” craze was well underway in Europe and Scandinavia, a very different kind of rocket was being seen in other parts of the world.

    One of the most remarkable incidents involving an unidentified flying object, which occurred prior to the subject’s popularity coinciding with Kenneth Arnold’s 1947 sighting, involved Captain Jack Puckett, the assistant chief of flying safety, Tactical Air Command. On the morning of August 1, 1946, Puckett was piloting a twin engine C-47, and had left Langley Field for MacDill Air Force Base near Tampa, Florida.

    Puckett was thirty miles from his destination when what appeared to be a long, brightly illuminated object nearly collided with his C-47. Puckett filed an incident report after he landed, according to which he stated:

    [The aircraft] continued toward us on a collision course, at our exact altitude. At about 1,000 yards, it veered to cross our path. We observed it to be a long, cylindrical shape approximately twice the size of a B-29 bomber, with luminous portholes.

    Puckett and his crew aboard the C-47 watched the object in amazement, until it disappeared over the horizon, traversing an estimated 100 miles over the course of three minutes.

    In my book The Ghost Rockets: Mystery Missiles and Phantom Projectiles in Our Skies, I note the rocket like functions of this unusual aircraft, in relation to rocket technologies that were being developed in Germany during the war:

    The object Puckett witnessed also produced a strange, sparkling tail, much like a rocket would; this detail would certainly present a lot of confusion among aviation officials at the time, in addition to increasing speculation about new kinds of technologies that might be under development elsewhere in the world. The technical information about rocketry advancements spearheaded in Nazi Germany during World War II, along with many of the leading experts in this field, were acquired by the British, Soviet, and American governments during and immediately following the war. America had previously gained access to V-2 rocket technology the Allies recovered at the Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp near Nordhausen, where an underground German rocket base known as the Mittelwerk factory, had been located. British forces managed to take away a wealth of information prior to the later Soviet occupation of the area. By late 1945, this information formed the basis of what became Operation Backfire, a program where British V-2 rockets were built and launched for purposes of demonstrating their capabilities.

    The significance of Puckett’s encounter goes beyond the mere recollection of a “mystery aircraft” for a number of reasons. For one, as mentioned earlier, this sighting took place well in advance (by almost a year) the sighting of objects over Mount Rainer, Washington, that sparked the eventual “flying saucer craze.” In addition to the sighting taking place prior to the swelling of reports that accompanied Kenneth Arnold’s initial UFO sightings over the northwest, the fact that the assistant chief of flying safety with Tactical Air Command would report an aircraft of this sort, and only months after the conclusion of the Second World War, would likely have been considered to be of sincere concern as far as national security; to have fabricated such a report would have meant severe repercussions for Puckett and his crew.

    Additionally, the object in question had initially been considered a meteor by Puckett and his crew, while still at a fair  distance from them. “This object continued toward us on a collision course at our exact altitude,” he continued in his incident report. “At about 1000 yards it veered to cross our path. We observed it to be a long, cylindrical shape approximately twice the size of a B-29, with luminous portholes.” It would seem unusual indeed that the pilot and crew would see a meteor, and then mistake the meteor as it traversed their altitude for being a massive aircraft of some kind, adorned with “luminous portholes”.

    Finally, the idea that the object had been a misidentification of some variety of natural phenomenon seems unusual, since Puckett and his crew’s description matched a number of similar UFO reports that would follow, most notably the famous 1948 Chiles and Whitted UFO encounter (dramatized in the image above), along with a similar observation that occurred shortly afterward in France.

    Granted, by the time the Chiles and Whitted sighting occurred, the “UFO craze” was already well underway. Indeed, Captain Jack Puckett’s unusual observation of a weird, “ghost rocket” over the American Southeast remains one of the most unusual, and perhaps significant observations of unexplained aerial activity in the modern era.

    “We were trawling along on the boat and I was just taking pictures and hoped for the best.

    “Because it was so dark and floodlit I didn’t notice it at the time.”

    The mysterious saucer-shaped green light appeared above an old water pumping station in Cambridge – now home to the city’s Museum of Technology.

    After Carole’s image was shared on social media people began to speculate on what the object was.

    One joked that the chimney is “a well-known intergalactic beacon for UFOs”.

    Cool Jobs: Bringing caves' dark secrets to light

    These scientists study caves to learn about geology, climate and life at extremes — possibly even in space
    cave light

    A hidden world of caves lies underground, providing scientists with plenty of opportunities for exploration. 

    BUDINARENDRA/ISTOCKPHOTO

    The largest crystals on Earth can be found in a cave in Mexico, buried 300 meters (about 1,000 feet) below ground. The biggest of these giants is about as long and wide as a school bus. These crystals crisscross within the cavern. They look like translucent white trees that have fallen in an alien forest. Smaller ones cluster like mineral bushes on the walls and floor.

    cave crystals
    The crystals within the Cave of Crystals, in Chihuahua, Mexico, host microbes that have been living in extreme circumstances for thousands of years.

    This is the Cave of Crystals, and it might be one of the most beautiful spots on Earth. It’s not the most comfortable, though. Temperatures here soar to 58° Celsius (136° Fahrenheit). Humidity hovers around 90 percent. People who enter the cave risk heatstroke. They must wear protective suits just to avoid suffocating. Thieves have died trying to steal slivers of the crystals.

    The dazzling cave might seem like the last place on Earth to look for life. But it doesn’t seem that way to Penelope Boston. She’s a speleologist (SPEE-lee-OL-uh-gizt) — a scientist who studies caves. And her specialty is life existing in extreme environments.

    Scientists have found organisms in plenty of hostile places — some of the hottest, coldest, darkest, deepest and most remote sites on Earth. To find such organisms, however, scientists must travel far and venture into unfriendly places. Including caves. 

    Some caves have been carved by underground streams. Others have formed during earthquakes or from volcanic activity. Now these sites provide windows to the inner workings of our planet. Protected from the surface, they change slowly — if at all. And this preserves a record of the past and represents one of Earth’s last unexplored frontiers. So to speleologists, caves are natural laboratories, full of possibilities.

    A tough place to call home

    Boston conducts research below ground. But she started by looking in the opposite direction: to outer space. She’s always wanted to know if life exists on other planets. And she's always wanted to go to Mars. In graduate school, she helped found The Mars Society. This organization is dedicated to getting people to the Red Planet — and settling there. She is also a past president of the Association of Mars Explorers, a group of scientists and others who are passionate about exploring “the frontiers of Mars.” That includes thinking about where to look for microscopic life on the planet. (If scientists do find microbes, these germs would be the first known Martians!)

    The surface of Mars is cold, dry and bombarded by radiation from the sun. It wouldn’t be a pleasant place to live. Boston thinks a better spot to find life would be beneath the Martian surface. Images from orbiting spacecraft have revealed holes in planet's surface.  Scientists suspect these could be natural skylights, leading to underground caverns. Those images from space also show curving troughs on the planet’s surface. These look like collapsed lava tubes, which are underground channels formed by flowing lava.

    Traveling to Mars to search for life in these places would be tough. But Earth also has lava tubes and caves. And they are a lot closer than Mars. So scientists like Boston study extremophiles — organisms that live in Earth’s most hostile places — to get an idea of what Martians might resemble, if they exist.

    Boston has spent decades looking for microscopic organisms in extreme places. “Over the years, we’ve developed a good eye for [finding] this stuff,” she says. That’s why she went to that hot, humid and spectacular cave in Mexico. She wondered whether anything could be living inside those crystals.

    Penelope Boston talks about what it’s like to search for life inside caves.
    Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics

    All crystals, big or small, develop defects as they grow. These defects are small pockets. Some defects in the Cave of Crystals aren’t empty, though. They contain fluid. Those crystal defects become “little time capsules,” Boston says. She thought their liquids might hold fossils of long-dead bacteria.

    To find out, she used a tiny drill to reach the pockets and extract the fluid. When she looked at this liquid under a microscope, she did find fossils. She also found microbes that posed something of a mystery. You see, she couldn't be sure they were actually dead.

    As she toiled in the hot cave, Boston knew she might never return. The cave is owned by a mining company, and, she notes, “The mining company was tired of us being around.” She placed the microbes into a heated dish containing microbe food. Then she rushed them back to her lab at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology in Socorro. There she ran a cave-studies program.

    To her surprise, the microbes began to grow in the lab. That meant they were alive!

    Nine years later, bacteria from 45 of her original 60 samples are still alive.

    To figure out the age of these microbes, she had to know the age of the crystals. Luckily, other scientists had been working on this.

    A crystal grows by accumulating new mineral on its outside. The innermost parts are the oldest. Scientists have figured out how fast crystals grow, so Boston could estimate the age of the microbes based on how deeply they had been buried in a crystal. Her colonies of microbes likely are between 10,000 and 50,000 years old, she reported earlier this year at a science meeting.

    These microbes may not be aliens, but they are definitely strange. They stay alive without sunlight. For food, they rely on minerals or fluids in the crystal. And they don’t mind the heat or humidity of the cave.

    Boston and her team are still studying the samples. They haven’t published their data yet because they want to be sure they’re correct. Other scientists need to look at these data, too, to check the findings.

    Still, Boston is excited. For the past year, she’s directed NASA’s Astrobiology Institute in Moffett Field, Calif. (NASA stands for National Aeronautics and Space Administration.) Astrobiology is the study of how life begins and thrives in the universe. Astrobiologists help plan missions to search for life on other planets, such as Mars. Boston’s research will now help guide those missions.

    She doesn’t expect to find the same organisms on other planets. Her research, however, shows that life finds a way in the most unexpected places. And if critters can thrive in the Cave of Crystals, then maybe others are thriving on Mars, or even more distant planets and moons.   

    Climate clues written in stone

    For speleologists, getting to work is often the hardest part of the job. They may have to scale cliffs or waterfalls on ropes. They may end up very wet. And their path may be lit only by lamplight. And that’s once they get inside. Just getting to the entrance can be tricky, too. Gina Moseley knows that firsthand.

    She’s a speleologist at the University of Innsbruck in Austria. Moseley studies caves to learn about Earth’s past climate. Climate refers to the weather patterns in a particular area over a long period.

    In 2015, Moseley’s research led her to caves in Greenland. This island sits mostly above the Arctic Circle. Because it’s so far north, much of Greenland is covered by ice. The island and its ice are sensitive to changes in temperatures. Scientists study Greenland to better understand how Earth’s climate is currently changing.  

    No one had ever visited the caves that Moseley's team were headed to before. And for good reason: They’re hard to reach.

    The researchers had to hire a small airplane to fly them up Greenland’s East Coast. The plane dropped them off on the edge of a lake. Then they inflated a boat to cross the frigid lake. Once on the other side, they hiked three days to reach the cave. After collecting samples from inside it, they made the long journey back to bring those samples home.

    Some samples came from flowstones. These are mineral sheets formed by water dripping from the ceiling. That water is special, Moseley says. It has traveled from the surface and through the soil and rock above the cave. Before that, it fell from the sky as rain. And before that it was in the ocean. In other words, caves are plugged into the water cycle.  

    Over time, elements and minerals accumulate in the water like souvenirs from its travels. “That water contains a chemical signature of the ocean and the atmosphere and the soil,” Moseley notes. Those chemical souvenirs include a mineral called calcite (KAL-syte). Over tens or hundreds of thousands of years, calcite piles up into stalagmites and flowstones. Stalagmites are rock formations that rise from the floor of a cave like giant candlesticks. These mineral towers trap information about the past climate.

    “When you take one and cut it open, you can see the different layers in there — a lot like tree-ring studies,” says Moseley. Scientists can read the layers like a history book of the region’s climate. During warmer eras, thicker calcite layers grow. During cooler eras, thinner layers form.  By measuring carbon, an element found in all living things, researchers can tell if plants had been growing during a particular time period.

    Moseley says her team’s research helps show what’s happened to Greenland in the past. Combined with other climate research, her studies add to a bigger picture of how that part of the planet has changed.

    Scientists already have studied deep ice samples from Greenland dating back 130,000 years. That means they have a record of warming and cooling periods going all the way back to the beginning of the last Ice Age. But Moseley says she and her team will use cave samples to look back even farther in time. 

    “Caves are another important cog in a much bigger system,” she says.  

    Islands of time

    Francesco Sauro, too, has studied caves the world over. He’s a speleologist at the University of Bologna in Italy. In recent years, he’s been traveling to caves in northern Venezuela. These South American caves are in mountains called tepuis (TEH-pwee), which rise from the jungle below like tabletops. They may look a little familiar — they inspired Paradise Falls in the movie Up. 

    Nothing is easy for explorers of the tepuis. The entrances to many caves look like cracks on the side of a cliff. To get there, cavers must first hire a helicopter to carry them to the top of the cliff. But the tepuis are often blanketed in clouds. Fast winds can whip around them. On many days, helicopters can’t fly safely. So Sauro and his team may wait weeks for the conditions to become just right.

    Once they reach the top, things get even trickier. The cavers must climb or rappel down to the cave’s entrance, carrying all their equipment in tow. After going to that much trouble, Sauro says, they want to stay. So in 2016, he and his team spent 40 days exploring one cave in the tepuis.

    TED

    Many caves form in limestone, a type of rock that easily dissolves in water. But caves in the tepuis form from quartzite sandstone. This material also dissolves in water, but much more slowly than limestone does. That means the tepui caves are much older than ones in limestone formations. In fact, caves within the tepuis might be the oldest on Earth.

    Like Boston, Sauro is interested in learning how rocks and life intersect. He studies the microbes that live inside these caves. He also studies the tepuis to better understand the processes that shape Earth. And he uses lasers to map the inner passages of the caves that he explores.

    A tepuis cave is unusual, “different from any other,” Sauro says. Quartzite is pink. That colors the caves’ passages pink, too. Water inside them run red. And the stalagmites and stalactites (which form on cave ceilings) have strange shapes. Some look like marshmallows stuck to the cave’s roof. Others look like fragile bones.

    Many of those formations likely host microbes that scientists have not yet identified. Some formations might even owe their creation to microbes, Sauro says. 

    He has become savvy about finding caves. He knows where to look for clues. To find a cave in the tepuis, he studies satellite maps and looks for sinkholes. He says mountains are a good place to look. If a mountain has no streams or rivers, that means all of its water is going underground. “That is an indication the mass contains some underground network,” he says. In other words: caves.

    One of the most interesting things about cave exploration, Sauro says, is that there’s no end in sight. “Not all caves have access to the surface,” he says. That means it’s likely that most of the caves in the world still remain undisturbed. They lie hidden, their secrets awaiting discovery.

    astrobiology     The study of life everywhere in the universe, including on Earth and in space.

    calcite     A type of extremely white and not terribly hard mineral that serves as the basis of many types of rock. It is the main ingredient in both limestone and marble, for instance. It’s chemical formula is CaCO3.

    carbon     The chemical element having the atomic number 6. It is the physical basis of all life on Earth. Carbon exists freely as graphite and diamond. It is an important part of coal, limestone and petroleum, and is capable of self-bonding, chemically, to form an enormous number of chemically, biologically and commercially important molecules.

    chemical     A substance formed from two or more atoms that unite (bond) in a fixed proportion and structure. For example, water is a chemical made when two hydrogen atoms bond to one oxygen atom. Its chemical formula is H2O. Chemical can also be used as an adjective to describe properties of materials that are the result of various reactions between different compounds.

    climate     The weather conditions prevailing in one area, in general, or over a long period.

    crystal     (adj. crystalline) A solid consisting of a symmetrical, ordered, three-dimensional arrangement of atoms or molecules. It’s the organized structure taken by most minerals. Apatite, for example, forms six-sided crystals. The mineral crystals that make up rock are usually too small to be seen with the unaided eye.

    dissolve     To turn a solid into a liquid and then disperse it into that starting liquid. For instance, sugar or salt crystals (solids) will dissolve into water. Now the crystals are gone and the solution is a fully dispersed mix of the liquid form of the sugar or salt in water.

    extremophile     A microorganism that lives in conditions of extreme temperature, acidity, alkalinity or concentrations of chemicals.

    fossil     Any preserved remains or traces of ancient life. There are many different types of fossils: The bones and other body parts of dinosaurs are called “body fossils.” Things like footprints are called “trace fossils.” Even specimens of dinosaur poop are fossils. The process of forming fossils is called fossilization.

    graduate school     A university program that offers advanced degrees, such as a Master’s or PhD degree. It’s called graduate school because it is started only after someone has already graduated from college (usually with a four-year degree).

    Greenland     The world’s largest island, Greenland sits between the Arctic Ocean and North Atlantic. Although it is technically part of North America (sitting just east of Northern Canada), Greenland has been linked more politically to Europe. Indeed, Vikings arrived in Greenland around the 10th century, and for a time the island was a colony of Denmark. In June 2009, Greenland became an independent nation. Ice covers roughly 80 percent of Greenland. Indeed, the Greenland ice sheet is the world’s largest. If its frozen water were to melt, it could raise sea levels around the world by 6 meters (about 20 feet). Although this is the 12th biggest nation (based on surface area), Greenland averages the fewest people per square kilometer of its surface area.

    humidity     A measure of the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere. (Air with a lot of water vapor in it is known as humid.)

    ice age     Earth has experienced at least five major ice ages, which are prolonged periods of unusually cold weather experienced by much of the planet. During that time, which can last hundreds to thousands of years, glaciers and ice sheets expand in size and depth. The most recent ice age peaked 21,500 years ago, but continued until about 13,000 years ago.

    laser     A device that generates an intense beam of coherent light of a single color. Lasers are used in drilling and cutting, alignment and guidance, in data storage and in surgery.

    lava     Molten rock that comes up from the mantle, through Earth’s crust, and out of a volcano.

    limestone     A natural rock formed by the accumulation of calcium carbonate over time, then compressed under great pressure. Most of the starting calcium carbonate came from the shells of sea animals after they died. However, that chemical also can settle out of water, especially after carbon dioxide is removed (by plants, for instance).

    Mars     The fourth planet from the sun, just one planet out from Earth. Like Earth, it has seasons and moisture. But its diameter is only about half as big as Earth’s.

    microbe     Short for microorganism. A living thing that is too small to see with the unaided eye, including bacteria, some fungi and many other organisms such as amoebas. Most consist of a single cell.

    mineral     The crystal-forming substances, such as quartz, apatite, or various carbonates, that make up rock. Most rocks contain several different minerals mish-mashed together. A mineral usually is solid and stable at room temperature and has a specific formula, or recipe (with atoms occurring in certain proportions) and a specific crystalline structure (meaning that its atoms are organized in certain regular three-dimensional patterns).

    National Aeronautics and Space Administration     (or NASA) Created in 1958, this U.S. agency has become a leader in space research and in stimulating public interest in space exploration. It was through NASA that the United States sent people into orbit and ultimately to the moon. It has also sent research craft to study planets and other celestial objects in our solar system.

    network     A group of interconnected people or things.

    organism     Any living thing, from elephants and plants to bacteria and other types of single-celled life.

    planet     A celestial object that orbits a star, is big enough for gravity to have squashed it into a roundish ball and has cleared other objects out of the way in its orbital neighborhood. To accomplish the third feat, the object must be big enough to have pulled neighboring objects into the planet itself or to have slung them around the planet and off into outer space.

    quartzite      A type of metamorphic rock made of quartz. It tends to develop within sandstone. Like its name suggests, sandstone forms from sand — tiny crystals of silica. Quartzite forms when that sandstone undergoes metamorphic changes due to heat, pressure and chemical reactions. These changes alter the sand grains and the mineral that cements them together to form a rock. The interlocking bits of quartz give this mineral incredible strength.

    rappel   To travel down a cliff by sliding along a rope while periodically kicking off against the surface with your legs.

    sandstone     A type of sedimentary rock. It formed as sand-size grains of mineral grit became compacted or glued together over time.

    satellite     A moon orbiting a planet or a vehicle or other manufactured object that orbits some celestial body in space.

    savvy     The quality of possessing useful and clever knowledge.

    sinkhole     A body of water that forms when a patch of ground opens up, revealing a rocky cavern below. That rocky structure then accumulates rainwater because there no opening below that allows the water to easily exit. Some sinkholes develop naturally. Others can result from the overpumping of any groundwater that may have collected in the rocky underground cavern. Sinkholes can be as small as a meter across or as large as a big lake.

    speleology     The study of caves. Someone who studies or explores caves is called a speleologist.

    stalactite     A mineral formation found in caves that forms in much the same way that icicles do. Liquid water slowly drips down from a surface. But if the water evaporates before the drop falls to the ground, any minerals in the water may solidify to form rock. Over time, the stalactites may grow to a meter or more across and many, many meters long.

    stalagmite    A mineral feature that can develop in moist caves. Water that drips down from the cave ceiling can very slowly evaporate, leaving behind an upward-growing mound of mineral deposits, or rock. Most of these structures, which resemble upside down icicles,have rounded or flattened tips.

    tepui      Flat-topped mountains in the highlands of southeastern Venezuela. Then tend to be made of sandstone. Some can rise as much as 1,000 meters (almost 3,300 feet).

    translucent     The property of letting light through, but not being transparent. Usually, things viewed through a translucent material (such as frosted window glass) appear as hazy shapes with no detail.

    Scientists Debate If We Should Be Sending Messages to Alien Worlds

    Image: Scientists Debate If We Should Be Sending Messages to Alien Worlds
    (AP)

    By Jason Devaney   

    A new look at a message sent into space by astronomers in 1974 asks whether humans should be worried about contacting other civilizations in the universe.

    The New York Times examines a new push to beam Earthly messages. The consensus on whether or not to broadcast to the universe is mixed.

    Kathryn Denning, who works as an anthropologist at Toronto's York University, told the Times she does not believe astronomers and other scientists should get to decide what we broadcast and how often. She alluded to the possibility of other societies waging an attack on Earth after detecting our location.

    "It's inevitable that there will be significant disagreement about the advisability of transmitting, and I don't think this is the sort of thing where a simple majority vote or even supermajority should carry the day," Denning told the Times. "So this keeps bringing us back to the same key question: is it OK for some people to transmit messages at significant power when other people don't want them to?"

    When asked directly what her view is on sending messages to outer space, Denning replied, "Why should my opinion matter more than that of a 6-year-old girl in Namibia? We both have exactly the same amount at stake, arguably, she more than I, since the odds of being dead before any consequences of transmission occur are probably a bit higher for me, assuming she has access to clean water and decent health care and isn't killed far too young in war."

    The Times also spoke with Frank Drake, who was in charge of the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico that sent the aforementioned radio signal in 1974. Drank founded the SETI Institute, which strives to detect extraterrestrial life.

    Drake said he does not support organized efforts by a group known as METI to beam messages into outer space.

    "We send messages all the time, free of charge," Drake said, referring to standard TV, radio, and other types of transmissions. "There's a big shell out there now 80 light years around us. A civilization only a little more advanced than we are can pick those things up."

    The Times does note that if another civilization were to detect a signal sent from Earth, that civilization is likely to be be more advanced than humans — which may or may not spell disaster for Earth.

    One scientist predicted that humans will detect life on another planet within 10 or 15 years.

    Another recent report, meanwhile, claimed that a radio signal detected by a telescope in 1977 may have actually been a signal from another civilization.

    VS verbergt al 70 jaar het bewijs dat aliens ons bezoeken. Gaat dit ervoor zorgen dat ze het bedrog eindelijk toegeven?

    De Paradigm Research Group (PRG) denkt dat bronnen uit de overheidswereld spoedig naar buiten zullen treden met informatie over aliens. Dat schrijft de Daily Express.

    Directeur Stephen Bassett is ervan overtuigd dat geheimen hierover worden bewaard uit angst voor de impact die dergelijke informatie zal hebben op religie en de rechtsstaat.

    Bassett is een campagne begonnen om het Witte Huis onder druk te zetten en te laten toegeven dat het ons de afgelopen 70 jaar heeft misleid.

    Disclosure

    Hij is van plan een kantoor te openen in Washington DC, van waaruit de media onder druk worden gezet om dit jaar over disclosure te berichten.

    De PRG kreeg eind mei bijval van miljardair en NASA-partner Robert Bigelow, die tijdens een interview met het CBS-programma 60 Minutes stelde dat buitenaardsen al hier op onze planeet zijn.

    “Hij zei dat een buitenaardse aanwezigheid in contact staat met de mensheid,” aldus Bassett. “Hij zei ook dat het hem niet uitmaakt wat anderen van hem denken.”

    Uitspreken

    PRG hoopt dat meer mensen zoals Bigelow zich uitspreken en wil met het Witte Huis en het Pentagon om tafel om te spreken over disclosure.

    Bassett organiseert de campagne samen met Coast to Coast AM, een platform voor onderzoekers, activisten en mensen die zeggen contact te hebben gehad met aliens.

    Onlangs claimde activist Steven Greer nog dat bepaalde mensen uit de Amerikaanse inlichtingenwereld proberen de waarheid naar buiten te brengen.

    What is mutilating cows in the Midwest? FBI probed thousands of reports of cattle killed with 'surgical precision' since the early 1970s - with the deaths blamed on satanic cults, the government and ALIENS

    • WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
    • Since the early 1970s, thousands of cow murders and mutilations have reportedly taken place in the Midwest
    • Reports include cattle having ears, lips, eyes, noses, anuses and genitalia removed with 'surgical precision' 
    • Conflicting theories abound - some believe either aliens or the government are responsible for the mutilations, or 'mutes', which have also been reported across the US and abroad
    • The FBI attempted to investigate the incidents but were largely unsuccessful due to 'lack of jurisdiction'

    On a bright, sunny morning in the summer of 1973, Ron and Paula Watson, two farmers in Springfield, Missouri, witnessed something that changed their lives forever.

    It was an alien abduction, they say. But not of a human – of cattle.

    They said they saw a 'green, cone-shaped craft' – next to which two 'silver little beings' were standing over a large black cow.

    'I told Ron, 'My god, they got a cow! What are they doing to it?' Paula said. 'It had its eyes open and its tongue was like, hanging out a little bit. But it just laid there and it didn't move.'

    She described in detail how she saw the aliens running their hands over the cow and then inspecting their long fingers before they 'floated' it into their large ship in the distance.

    Their neighbors never believed their story, though one did admit to having one black cow left unaccounted for.  The Watsons' story sounds like something out of an early science-fiction film – but it became one of many stories of alien and UFO sightings used to explain the thousands of cow mutilations reported across the United States in the 1970s. 

    Since the 1970s, bizarre murders and mutilations of cattle have been reported across the nation, primarily in the Midwest. In this photo of a cow in Saguache County, Colorado in 1975, a female cow's utters have been removed with surgical precisionThough the height of the mutilations took place in the 1970s - they certainly have not stopped. This female cow was found with its tongue removed in July 2013 on a farm in Missouri

    Within the depths of the FBI's database of unsolved mysteries lies the graphic tale of these cattle murders, which outraged and petrified farmers for decades, and is still continuing today.

    Speculation surrounding who – or what – might be responsible for the killing and mutilation of thousands of cows has ranged from satanic worshipers, government agents, and even aliens.

    The most curious aspect is not that the cattle have died, but the way in which they did. Since the early 1970s farmers have discovered their treasured (and expensive) animals dead with various organs excised – including eyes, noses, tongues, hearts, livers, anuses, and genitalia removed with laser precision.

    Though many theories have been offered it's a phenomenon that no one – not even the FBI – have ever been able to solve. 

    In 1974, newspapers started to catch wind of these bizarre mutilations, which first took place primarily in extremely rural farmlands in the Midwest. Instances were reported across the nation but were mostly scattered among South Dakota, Colorado, Kansas, and Nevada.

    The news reports make up the bulk of the FBI's 32 page report on the subject, which is prefaced by a brief explanation that their investigation was hindered by a lack of jurisdiction in most cases.

    The FBI told DailyMail.com that this was due to the fact that at the time there was no federal law declaring animal mutilation a federal crime, which didn't allow the department to continue investigating.

    Many residents reported seeing helicopters circling the areas where cattle later turned up dead and sliced up with seemingly surgical accuracy. This prompted concerns that the mutilations, nicknamed 'mutes' by those familiar with the subject, were being propagated and covered up by the government.

    Many ranchers reported finding their beloved (and expensive) animals with their sex organs removed, like the genitalia and anus seen hereIn 1974, newspapers started to catch wind of these bizarre mutilations, which first took place primarily in extremely rural farmlands in the Midwest.

    in this image on the left, the cow's heart was excised with expert care - and was the third of three cattle mutilated on the same farm in Missouri beginning in 2011. Theories of who, or what, might be responsible have ranged from satanic cults, aliens, and the government. In the image on the right, ranchers found an animal with its sex organs and anus removed

    This was around the same time of the height of alien paranoia in the United States – when UFOs, or balls or discs of floating light, were being spotted in similarly rural areas, often preceding or following the cow mutilations.

    Many who have dedicated their lives to the subject believe, in fact, that aliens are responsible for the mutilations and that the government has been attempting to cover up their crimes (and existence) for years.

    One such person is Linda Moulton Howe, the regional Emmy-winning filmmaker who the Watsons shared their story with for her documentary Earth Mysteries: Alien Life Forms. She has been one of the most steadfast supporters of the alien argument.

    Her research conjures the images of what we picture as the stereotypical alien abduction – flying saucers beaming animals up into space with light.

    At least two people even reported being abducted by aliens at that time – including one woman named Judy Doraty and her daughter Cindy.

    In a 1990 symposium proceeding Howe wrote: '…I found in so many eyewitness accounts of orange glowing objects the size of football fields hovering above pasturelands where mutilated animals were later found. Or beams of light observed shining down from 'silent helicopters' that lighted pastures 'brighter than daylight' and the next day mutilated animals were found. And eyewitness reports of strange craft and/or non-human creatures involved with animals.

    'There was Judy Doraty who in 1973 watched a brown and white calf rise in a pale beam of yellow light. Inside the craft, she saw tissue cut from the eye, tongue and testicles by two small grey-skinned creatures. They had four fingers, instead of five, and those long, thin fingers tapered into dark nails. Their eyes had vertical pupils like a cat or a crocodile's.

    'Judy's daughter, Cindy, also described in a 1990 hypnosis session seeing a calf rising in a beam of yellow light.'

    In a rare winter mutilation, this calf was found in Hooper, Nebraska in 1975 with its jaw completely cut out all the way  up to its right eye socket. Eyewitnesses often reported seeing beaming lights or suspicious helicopters near where mutilated cows were later found

    US Senator Floyd Haskell from Colorado pleaded with the FBI to become involved with the mutilations in August 1975 after receiving more than 130 cases in the state alone, and farmers had taken to arming themselves out of fear 

    Supernatural explanations were the only ones that made any sense at the time – given that the technology of the era was not advanced enough to have performed what appeared to be the use of localized lasers.

    The areas surrounding the excisions, often around the anus of the murdered animals, had a blackened and burned appearance to them – suggesting the use of a high-powered laser. Other researchers, however, proposed different conclusions.

    Christopher O'Brien, an author and investigative journalist on the subject, said that in his 200 cases of dealing with cattle death, about 40 of those were done by 'something with intelligence'.

    Christopher O'Brien, an author and who has investigated the subject for decades, said that in his 200 cases of dealing with cattle death, about 40 of those were done by 'something with intelligence'. He is pictured researching left in 1993 and right in 2012

    This Hooper, Nebraska calf also had its anus cut in a 10-inch wide diameter and 18-inch deep. O'Brien told DailyMail.com that he didn't believe aliens were responsible - because 'who would fly thousands of light years to collect cow butts?'

    This Hooper, Nebraska calf also had its anus cut in a 10-inch wide diameter and 18-inch deep. O'Brien told DailyMail.com that he didn't believe aliens were responsible - because 'who would fly thousands of light years to collect cow butts?'

    He is more skeptical of the alien explanation – saying that Howe's research doesn't incorporate many of the scientific findings that have been made.

    He told the DailyMail.com that when a cow decomposes, the vegetable matter contained in one of its four stomachs makes the animal bloat. As the moisture leaves the body it then starts to deflate – causing the exposed edges of the animal to stay hard and darkened.

    'To someone who doesn't know what they're looking at – it looks like a burn,' he said.

    O'Brien feels that the alien argument is one used to sensationalize the topic and are only looking at a small portion of the total data.

    He can't deny, however, how disturbing the number of 'high strange' cases are that he's seen – the ones that involve otherworldly circumstances.

    On one occasion which O'Brien calls his 'strangest case' – he was called to the scene of a mutilated calf in Del Norte, Colorado. 

    'It was really freaky, it wouldn't rot,' he said. 'It was found in a complete pristine, five inch snow field without one drop of blood on the snow. All the blood had been taken from the animal. The heart and liver had been expertly excised and left in the body cavity.

    'The chief medical veterinary pathologist said "it wasn't an animal that did this",' he continued.

    In O'Brien's book, Stalking the Heard, he writes that the month-old calf was also missing its spine from the hips to the skull and the brain was gone. It's right front leg was also gone, and the vast majority of its ribs, both eyes, ears, intestines, reproductive tract, and lungs had been removed. Its rectum was also mutilated.

    Two witnesses also reportedly saw a large beam of light near the house the previous evening before the calf was found. 

    O'Brien's 'strangest case' was this month-old calf that was missing its spine from the hips to the skull and the brain was gone. It's right front leg was also gone, and the vast majority of its ribs, both eyes, ears, intestines, reproductive tract, and lungs had been removed. Its rectum was also mutilated and its heart and liver were excised but left inside the body cavity

    O'Brien's 'strangest case' was this month-old calf that was missing its spine from the hips to the skull and the brain was gone. It's right front leg was also gone, and the vast majority of its ribs, both eyes, ears, intestines, reproductive tract, and lungs had been removed. Its rectum was also mutilated and its heart and liver were excised but left inside the body cavity

    He hits on another popular argument for the cattle deaths – though arguably the least plausible explanation. Many believe that the excisions were being done simply by other animals – scavengers such as vultures or coyotes.

    O'Brien is quick to discredit this based off of his own experience.

    'The first thing I look for is cut hair follicles,' he said. 'When birds or coyotes rip they rip between the lines of hair they don't cut the hair. If I find a 2-3 inch section of cut hair follicles I know that someone or something with a sharp implement did that. It wasn't done by birds or scavengers.'

    These 'high strange' cases are less likely to be reported by ranchers, according to O'Brien.

    'The freakier the case the less likely the rancher is to report it – they're so freaked out they won't even tell their family or neighbors. He doesn't want people in the community to think he's been singled out and victimized by some supernatural thing. That's why they're very reluctant to come forward.

    'It's only when they see the hundreds and hundreds of helicopters being reported around these sites – mostly military helicopters – it's only when they see that that they feel like they've been targeted or victimized by their government and that pisses them off.'

    Though the occurrences in the United States have considerably slowed down since they were at their height in the early 1970s, they certainly haven't stopped. O'Brien notes that they have seen a consistently high number of cases in South America, especially Brazil and Argentina.

    O'Brien says that throughout his decades of studying mutilations, he's noticed that there's been a shift to South America, where he believes they've had more than 4,000 cases since 2002. A news report included in an FBI briefing stated that more than 1500 cattle in 22 states were killed and mutilated from 1973 to 1976 in the United States 

    He claims that since 2002, there have been more than 4,000 cases of cattle mutilation in South America - and are still reporting anywhere from three to a dozen cases a week.

    Back in the United States, just before the New Year in 2016, and again a few days afterwards, two cows were mutilated in nearby rural towns in Kansas.

    In McPherson County, Carla and John Shearer discovered one of their pregnant cows dead with one eye removed and both her top and bottom eyelids and eyelashes excised.

    'We lose animals, but not like this,' Shearer told the Kansas Agland. The couple believes whoever killed their $4,000 cow used a tranquilizer or stun gun to immobilize it before killing it.

    'She died in motion – she was walking and she just went straight down,' Shearer added.

    Carla and John Shearer on McPherson County, Kansas discovered one of their pregnant cows dead with one eye removed and both her top and bottom eyelids and eyelashes excised in January 2017 

    The bull found in nearby Harvey County was found dead with its genitals removed – also cut with surgical precision.

    It is O'Brien's opinion that the mass mutilations – of which there were thousands reported in the 1970s alone – are a part of a secretive government effort to research animal plagues such as mad cow or prion disease.

    'We've seen this many, many times throughout history – where one case will happen and then within a week there will be a dozen. I think they're looking for something – that's the best explanation I can give. And I think they're looking for something within the food chain.

    'Bovine spongiform encephalopathy is the most horrendous affliction that you could possibly imagine. It's 100% fatal – it produces large holes in the brain tissue and creates holes like Swiss cheese in the neuron system and the brain synapses start to misfire. You forget to breathe and your autonomic system starts to break down.

    'That I think is the basic underpinnings of it – we're dealing with a group that is interested in keeping an eye on the food chain. The beef industry is the largest, most powerful industry that you never hear about. I think we're dealing with something that's being protected by some quasi-governmental group,' he said.

    Though tempting to indulge in the possibility of space creatures invading the planet to study our animals, O'Brien finds this explanation a bit too impractical.

    'It sounds like bad science fiction,' he said. 'Who would fly hundreds of light years to come and gather cow butts?'

    Aliens in Newcastle? UFOs filmed hovering over the North East decades after Roswell mystery first gripped the world

    On the 70th anniversary of the Roswell incident, questions still surround the possibility of extraterrestrial life

    BY 

    For decades the mystery surrounding UFOs has gripped people across the world - but if aliens really do exist, what to do the look like and where would they go?

    It appears that the answer to that might be Newcastle.

    This year is the 70th anniversary of the infamous Roswell incident , when a balloon crash in New Mexico went on to spark decades of conspiracy theories.

    And the Newcastle area, as this amateur video footage shows, has had its fair share of UFOs, Chronicle Live reports .

    Newcastle, as amateur video footage shows, has had its fair share of UFOs 

    The North East has its very own list of X Files and with dozens of UFO sightings being reported over the years.

    In 1977, a Flight Lieutenant based at RAF Boulmer reported seeing “bright objects hanging over the sea” including an object that was “luminous, round and four to five times larger than a helicopter”.

    People have been left wondering what the objects could be
     

    In 2004, a Gateshead vicar photographed a bright object hovering in the night sky.

    He said: “It was hovering from left to right, and was extremely smooth. Then the light just turned off as if it was still there, but hidden.”

    In 2015 Craig Lowther from Tynemouth managed to film a dome-shaped object with pulsating lights hovering over the North East coast.

    Countless other clips have also been collected, including video from North Shields were three bright lights are filmed in a triangle formation above the town.

    UFO sightings have occurred across the world for decades 

    It comes as rumours swept the internet this week that NASA was about to make an announcement concerning the existence of alien life.

    However, NASA science chief Thomas Zurbuchen said in a Twitter post on Tuesday: “Contrary to some reports, there’s no pending announcement from NASA regarding extraterrestrial life.”

    COSMIC CAFE: Unearthing the Crop Circle Phenomenon

    By 

    JACKSON HOLE, WY – Crop Circles are a fascinating phenomenon. They often stretch more than 800 feet (larger than two NFL football fields) with complex and precise geometric patterns laid down into fields of summer grains. Much of the designs are done in the middle of night, in a few hours or less, with no footprints. “Some of these formations are so immense and complex as to defy reason,” Richard Dolan, historian, academic, author, and one of the world’s leading UFO researchers, once said.

    Sometimes people have seen white orbs moving around the crops at the time the grain is swirled and intricately woven into purposeful patterns. Though crop circles occur all over the world, and have for a long time, England’s crop formations have been the most numerous, the most studied and the most elaborate.

    Two amazing examples

    In summer 2001, there were two extraordinary crop circles which appeared in the same field next to England’s largest interstellar observatory. The first was an enormous rectangular honeycomb of “pixels,” which were indecipherable at ground level. From the air, the design revealed a human face that clearly and eerily looked like the controversial “face” photographed on the surface of Mars.

    A few days later, a second crop circle appeared in binary code. Researchers were struck by how similar it was to the 1974 binary code interstellar radio transmission designed by Carl Sagan and beamed by SETI (search for extraterrestrial intelligence) into space. This was transmitted from the observatory in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, toward a star cluster 23,000 light years away from earth.

    The transmission sent in the 70s showed the drawing of a man, the double helix of human DNA, symbols for the five basic elements of life on earth (hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and phosphorous) and a map of our solar system highlighting earth as the the third planet from the sun.

    There were some enticing additions in the crop circle which appeared 30 years after the signals from earth were sent. In the crop circle the DNA has three strands, forming a triple helix. Our message included five key elements in our periodic table, and the crop formation had a sixth element inserted. It was the code for silicon, and alternative life-bearing substance to carbon. You can imagine that scientists and lay people alike have speculated this crop circle might have been an answer to the Arecibo transmission.

    Who creates the circles and why?

    Theories abound about the creators of the circles, and how they do this. However, the consensus is that these are intentional communications created by friendly non-terrestrial intelligence using advanced technologies.

    The intent seems to be three things: a benevolent effort to tell us more about our place in the cosmos; to let us know what shifts may be occurring in the cosmos which are, or will be, affecting us; and to awaken us to higher levels of consciousness.

    How could these enormous crop circles accomplish any of these things?  People who study and interpret them point to the many levels of symbolic, mathematical and esoteric information/meaning in the patterns, coupled with the longitude and latitude of each circle, and the distinctly accelerated energy frequencies measured in the circles themselves.

    Authentic vs. fake

    To be sure, there are authentic crop circles and manmade fakes. Scientists have discovered the plants in authentic circles have significant changes in their DNA. Plants involved in the crop formations grow 40 percent larger than the regular grains. Their root systems are also 40 percent stronger, and the grains are markedly healthier. And, though the designs cover hundreds of yards and are intricately laid on acres upon acres of plants to form the woven, complex patterns, the plant stems are bent, but never broken.

    Up close and personal

    I have walked in some of these crop circles in England and have flown over many of them in a small plane. I can attest to their awe-inspiring patterns and powerful energies. Some breweries in England even make beer and bread using the grains from crop circles.

    I leave it to your curious minds to check research at cropcircleconnector.com. There is also a compelling documentary online by Academy Award nominated documentary filmmaker William Gazecki, Crop Circles: Quest for Truth.

    Indeed, the 2017 crop circle season has already begun. PJH

    Watch UFOs filmed hovering over Tyneside: Has ET been visiting Geordieland?!

    As the 70th anniversary of the famous Roswell incident in New Mexico, USA, approaches, check out five Tyneside UFO sightings

    BY 

    It remains one of the most intriguing mysteries and it began to unfold in June, 1947...

    The ‘Roswell incident’ has captured imaginations the world over for the last 70 years.

    The once sleepy New Mexico town became the focal point of the biggest extraterrestrial hunt in history following reports a flying saucer had crashed, complete with aliens, in the American desert.

    The alleged events sparked worldwide wonder until the US military claimed the incident was nothing more than a downed surveillance balloon.

    In the same year, the term “flying saucer” was coined, based on quotes by witness Kenneth Arnold describing the shape of the objects he saw as like a “saucer”, “disc”, or “pie-plate”.

    UFO reports flourished in the midst of the 1950s-70s Cold War and, in the decades since, thousands of images of UFOs purported to be of extraterrestrial origin have been captured.

    And in recent years, thousands of hours of video footage has been collected by individuals worldwide and much of it posted on YouTube showing strange lights, shapes and craft-like objects in our skies.

    The subject has also become a favourite in Hollywood. Film blockbusters like Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, ET, and Independence Day have all imagined what might happen if aliens - both benign and malign - showed up at planet earth.

    On the 70th anniversary of the famous Roswell incident, has ET been paying sneak visits to Tyneside and the North East?

    Meanwhile, outlandish theories have emerged.

    Is NASA really covering up strange geometric structures and towers that were filmed and photographed on the moon during the Apollo missions?

    Is there really a 13,000-year-old alien satellite called the ‘Black Knight’ orbiting the earth?

    And did a space ship carrying extraterrestrial beings crash in the US desert at Roswell 70 years ago - and were they captured and taken to a top-secret US defence instalment called Area 51?

    The internet and countless books would have us believe so.

    Closer to home, even Ant and Dec got in on the act in 2006, with the TV pair releasing the comedy movie Alien Autopsy based on the fabled 1947 incident.

    The North East has its very own list of X Files and the Chronicle has reported on dozens of UFO sightings over the years.

    In 2015, for example, Craig Lowther from Tynemouth managed to film a dome-shaped object with pulsating lights hovering over the North East coast.

    In 1977, a Flight Lieutenant based at RAF Boulmer reported seeing “bright objects hanging over the sea” including an object that was “luminous, round and four to five times larger than a helicopter”.

    in 2004, a Gateshead vicar photographed a bright object hovering in the night sky. He said: “It was hovering from left to right, and was extremely smooth. Then the light just turned off as if it was still there, but hidden.”

    And back in 1940, Robert Hall, was ‘abducted by aliens’ from a back lane in Bensham, Gateshead. He was “taken onboard the ship by a group of grey, horrible- looking creatures.”

    There are many more puzzling stories in the Chronicle archive.

    On the 70th anniversary of Roswell, check out our video of UFOs over Tyneside and Durham.

    Do the strange lights in the sky have a logical, scientific down-to-earth explanation - or has ET been paying sneak visits to Geordieland in recent decades?

    Finally, wild rumours swept the internet this week that NASA was about to make an announcement concerning the existence of alien life.

    However, NASA science chief Thomas Zurbuchen said in a Twitter post on Tuesday: “Contrary to some reports, there’s no pending announcement from NASA regarding extraterrestrial life.”

    Is that good or bad news? Who knows?

    The truth is still out there.

    Roswell: 70th anniversary and alleged new witness (VIDEO)

    UFOs Today Book Cover 250

    The new book UFOs TODAY – 70 Years of Lies, Misinformation and Government Cover-Ups by Irena Scott PhD contains an amount of controversial and thought provoking information as the title of the book might suggest. If I were a gambling man I would bet on one piece of information in this book being the most controversial within its pages. With it being the 70th anniversary of the Roswell Incident, an event that many claim was the crash of a space vehicle from an ET origin, the news that an alleged new witness emerging might not be that big a surprise.

    The Roswell File and Charles H. Forgus.

    In 2012, I was contacted by a gentleman called Scott Ferguson. Scott was part of a production company called White Tiger Films. He explained to me that he had some information on the Roswell Incident that he would like me to take a look at. I had first to sign a non-disclosure agreement which I did.  Once this was signed I was sent what Scott called his ‘Roswell File’. He was looking to possibly make a movie based around this file and asked if I could help research the alleged witness. I of course agreed. The ‘Roswell File’ consisted of a transcript of an interview with the alleged witness Charles H. Forgus, a video interview with him and a photo as well. The story of how White Tiger Films obtained this material is I would say quite unique.

    The witness to the Roswell crash scene was Deputy Sheriff Charles H Fogus of Howard County, Texas. He was interviewed in 1999 by Los Angeles private investigator Deanna Short. Deanna recorded the interview on video and later had a transcript done of the interview and completed her Agency report to verify facts at that time related to Charles Forgus and Sheriff Jess Slaughter – both of Howard County, Texas.

    Deanna Bever and Charles Forgus circa 1999.

    Deanna Bever and Charles Forgus circa 1999.

    Sheriff Jess Slaughter and Deputy Sheriff Charles Fogus were allegedly travelling together in early July, 1947 from Texas to Roswell to pick up a prisoner when they happened on the Roswell crash scene in New Mexico. Both were there and were on an overlook to view the crash scene recovery by the Army.  I should note that according to Deanna’s daughter Mackenzie, Charles made a special effort to note to Deanna “not to believe what others will say – he and the Sheriff did witness the Roswell crash scene”.

    Deanna is now deceased but her daughter Mackenzie Christian has kept Deanna’s files that include the Roswell case which includes the video interview. Robert Short is Deanna’s son. Both Mackenzie and Robert are themselves experienced investigators having worked along side there mom in years past.  Robert has taken up the work to investigate both Sheriff Jess Slaughter and Deputy Sheriff Charles Fogus.

    In 1999 Deanna verified the background, including living relatives of both law enforcement individuals that existed at the time and documented that in her agency intelligence report.

    I will producer here the transcript of the interview with Charles Forgus which was conducted in 1999. Some words have been redacted but not by me but by Deanna Bever.

    LR: What I’m trying to do is pierce together……

    CF: I was working for the Sheriff of . I was a Deputy there for Sheriff Slaughter, was back in the 40’s. We went to Roswell to pick up a prisoner. When we got there, the land was covered with soldiers. They were hauling a big, a creature. Hauling him away.

    What I seen of him looked just like the one we see on television, with big eyes. There was a big round thing in the canyon. It was about 100 feet across. They put that on a truck and hauled it away. They wouldn’t let us get very close to it either. So we headed up to get the prisoner in Roswell and back to.

    LR: So you were on your way from to Roswell to pick up a prisoner and you happened to be at that place……

    CF: It already had crashed. They were taking them out. There were soldiers there….about 3 or 4 hundred of them. They wouldn’t let you get very close. They were keeping all the people away. People were coming out there.

    LR: What did the saucer (we’ll call it) look like?

    CF: It was a big round thing. Across the middle it was about 100 feet.

    LR: Did you see any lights around it?

    CF: No, they went out when it banged into the wall in the creek. It was like a mountain on the side of the creek.

    LR: Did you see any creatures: How many did you see?

    CF: Yeh, I saw them. I think I seen about four (of them).

    LR: were they covered up?

    CF: Mostly. I saw the legs and feet on some of them.

    LR: What did the feet look like? Do you remember?

    CF: They looked like our feet.

    LR: Could you figure how tall they were? They were laying flat, Right?

    CF: Yeh, There is one thing I do remember. The Great Father didn’t just make this planet…. He made all of them. He put beings on these planets just like he put us on this one. They’re smarter then we are. They can get from there to here, but we can’t get from here to there.

    (Note: CF is rather deaf. He wears two hearing aid appliances in this ears, so he answers my questions as follows …)

    LR: Why do you think they’re here then?

    CF: I don’t know where they hauled them. They might have hauled them to the hospital or somewhere.

    LR: How long were you and Sheriff Slaughter at that site after you arrived?

    CF: About 30 Minutes?

    LR: Did you tell anyone about it?

    CF: The Army was there and military soldiers were there.

    LR: Did they tell you not to say anything?

    CF: No, they didn’t tell me nothing’. They wouldn’t let you get close to ‘em.

    LR: Did they actually see you observing what was going on?

    CF: Sure, they saw me lookin’ at them.

    LR: And they didn’t tell you to not say anything…..

    CF: No, They wouldn’t let us get close to them. We were about 10 away.

    LR: You were that close?

    CF: We might have been further away. I didn’t have glasses then, I could see pretty good.

    DB: What was your official capacity then?

    CF: I was a Deputy The County Seat was I was riding with the Sheriff when we went to get the prisoner.

    He didn’t order nobody except me to go with him. The UFO was already down when we got there. We went and got the prison afterwards. We heard about it on the radio.

    LR: What did you hear on the radio?

    CF: That the thing had crashed.

    LR: But they didn’t know what ‘the thing’ was?

    CF: No. But you would think that when people hear something like this, it scares the heck out of them. This came out of the POLICE RADIO. We were on the way through there (to pick up the prisoner) when we heard it on the police radio. It was a big distance from to Roswell…you can look on a map and see it.

    LR: So let me ask you this. When you guys were driving down the road and you were listening to the police radio……

    CF: Yeh…..

    LR: Do you remember what was said on the radio about whatever it was… Do you recall?

    C.Fogus Statement

    CF: All I remember is they said that a saucer crashed out there in the canyon.

    LR: They actually said the word ‘saucer’?

    CF: They can call it a saucer if they want to but there ain’t a big enough cup of coffee for that thing.

    LR: How long do you think you were at the site? (Note the cookoo clock goes off at noon)

    CF: Probably about 20 minutes. We seen them haul them (the bodies) out there, out of the canyon up to the trucks….puttin them on the tow trucks so they could haul them.

    Sheriff Jess Slaughter (date unknown).

    Sheriff Jess Slaughter (date unknown).

    DB: Did anyone try to get you to leave the scene.

    CF: No….they told the Sheriff that we had to go. That was good enough for us….He’s the boss.

    LR: When they were taking the beings (we’ll call them), were the beings laying on the ground around the saucer?

    CF: Yeh, they were lifting them up with a crane that they had and picking them up and swinging them to put them on the truck. The bodies must have been 5 feet tall.

    LR: Did you see the heads?

    CF: Yeh….they were covered. They eyes looked like the ones we see on television and the pictures of them.

    LR: What color was the skin?

    CF: As much as I could tell….the skin was a brownish color…. Like they were in the sun too long.

    LR: From the time it crashed until the time you got there, do you know how much time went by? From the time you heard it on the police radio until you got there?

    CF: About two hours.

    LR: Did you see any writing or engraving on the saucer?

    CF: I wasn’t that close to it?

    LR: If you were say 12 feet away from the beings, how far were the beings away from the saucer. Were they thrown pretty far?

    CF; We couldn’t see that well because of the trees. It was in a riverbank. It slammed into a river bank. I say them lifting one up with the crane.

    LR: Did anyone else talk to you about what was going on?

    CF: There were some solders, but I don’t think they were from the Air Force.

    LR: Where do you think they were from then?

    CF: I don’t know. They were wearing uniforms. I didn’t pay no attention cause I just wanted to go with the Sheriff to get the heck out of there before something happened.

    LR: When you guys were in the car to go pick the guy up, did you discuss or talk about what you had seen with the Sheriff?

    CF: No. I didn’t know what they were and he didn’t either or where they came from or nothin.

    DB: Did you see any blood on the bodies?

    CF: I don’t know…. I guess they were dead.

    LR: You’re 81 years old now. When and where were you born?

    C.Fogus Statement

    CF: I was born in I don’t know what city.

    LR: You have been in the

    CF: I sure have, before I became a Deputy Sheriff.

    LR: So when this thing at Roswell happened, you were already out of the Army and were a Deputy Sheriff. That happened in 1947. Now it’s 1999. That was 52 years ago, Charlie. And you still remember it clearly?

    CF: Yeh, pretty clear.

    LR: Has anyone ever talked to you or asked you to talk about what happened…like to the Government, cause there’s a lot of research going on now because of the cover-up.

    CF: There was one that came around, and I told him to shut up and not come around. I don’t know who they were. That was when I was Deputy Sheriff.

    LR: When you saw the saucer, can you remember in your mind what it looked like. Can you draw it?

    CF: No….you draw it?

    (Note: Charlie had LR draw because he broke his arm and can’t use it). He directed LP to draw a circle (not an oval). Then he directed LR to draw another circle with the circle. This was a drawing of the top of the saucer. Charlie was standing on top of the opposite side of the bank of the dry creek bed where the saucer had crashed.

    LR: Were you standing above it?

    CF: I was standing on the back side. The saucer hit the bank on this side of the creek and I was standing on the other side of the bank, at the top of the hill. I was looking down at the site.

    LR: So you had a ‘bird’s eye view‘, that’s why you were able to see the top of it?

    CF: I didn’t have a ‘bird’s eye, I’ve got my own eyes (he laughs)

    LR: LR shows Charlie the drawing. LR says, if this is the top (of the saucer), how much higher were you.

    CF: Probably about 20 feet above it.

    LR: So, that’s why you saw the top (of the saucer). And you say, that from here to here (across the top of the saucer – diameter) is about 100 feet.

    CF: It was evenly round.

    LR: So it was absolutely round…. Not oval shaped and you were 20 feet above it, that’s why you saw the top.

    LR: did you see the fingers and hands?

    CF: No, they were covered up. But I saw the head.

    LR: But you said you saw the feet.

    CF: Yeh, later on, when they were passing by I saw the feet. I could see them lifting it up with the crane. They wouldn’t let you close enough when they were puttin’ them into the truck. When they were liftin them on the crane you could see them layin’ on that thing.

    LR: You said the body was covered. Were the arms layin on the stomach under the cover?

    CF: When the wind blew, the cover went back so you could see the face. The same way with the feet.

    INVESTIGATION

    Nothing has been changed in the above transcript and who LR is I have no idea. No sooner had I started to try and help Scott Ferguson that all communication with him abruptly ceased. No matter how I tried to contact him I had no reply. So that is where I left it. It wasn’t until 2014 that I had an email from Robert Short (Deanna Bevers son) informing me that Scott had died. Any further work on this material was again delayed because of my own serious ill health.

    In 2016, I contacted Robert Short and asked him if I could publish this material and try and continue with the investigation into it. Robert agreed and permission was granted. I asked for the assistance of Chris Evers, Irena Scott PhD and the Mutual UFO Network. The investigation into this material is on-going but between us we have managed to establish a few things. For example Sheriff Slaughter was not the Sheriff in 1947. He was in fact Sheriff twice, the first time from 1928 until 1940 and the second was 1953 to 1956. The Sheriff in 1947 was R.L. Wolf (see Sheriff’s log). We have also located his military discharge papers from WWII. On top of that there are a number of local newspapers that mention Charles Forgus.

    REPORT ON  MUFON SAT Case # 17MSAT01ROS-001

    January 31, 2017

    By SAT

    PART ONE-DEPUTY FORGUS’S STORY

    OVERVIEW

    In 1999 a resident of Big Spring Texas gave a deposition to a private investigator claiming that he was a witness to the Roswell UFO crash in July of 1947.

    Charles Forgus Jr. was born on January 28, 1918 and died in 2001.  He would have been 29 years old in 1947 when the incident is alleged to have taken place. He called himself a Deputy Sheriff for Howard County.

    His co-witness was Sheriff Jess Slaughter. Slaughter was born in 1896 per the 1940 census. His obituary states he was born in 1894 and died in 1972.

    So in 1947 Charles Forgus was 29 and his Sheriff Jess Slaughter was 53. Logical ages for their positions.

    Charles Forgus related that “in the 1940s” he and Jess Slaughter were travelling between Big Spring Texas and Roswell New Mexico to pick up and return a prisoner to Big Spring which is the Howard County Texas seat. Both Forgus and Slaughter lived in Big Spring.

    In the New Mexico portion of the journey travelling west to pick up the prisoner, they came across a crash and debris site in the desert. They observed three to four hundred Army personnel scouring the crash site. They observed a crashed “circular” saucer about 100 feet in diameter. They also saw two dead bodies being loaded onto a truck. The disc was described as circular, metal and had a second circle within it possibly a cupola. They explained their vantage point was over a dry river/creek bed viewable from the highway. The saucer had crashed into the riverbank below. Their vantage point was approximately 20 feet above the embankment presumably from the highway.

    They witnessed two corpses being loaded onto a truck. The corpses were covered with sheets but wind allowed the officers to see human type feet, brown skin, large eyes on the head and they approximated the bodies as being 5 feet tall.

    It is suggested that they were fairly close to Roswell and actually returned with the prisoner and saw more of the clean-up operation. The operation went on for hours presumably during daylight.

    MAIN PROBLEMS

    There are three main problems associated with the 1999 interview of Charles Forgus Jr. He was interviewed by Los Angeles private investigator Deanna Short. Deanna recorded the interview on video and later had a transcript done of the interview and completed her Agency report to verify facts at that time. Deanna is now deceased.

    First, unbelievably, the interrogator did not ask Mr. Forgus for a date (not even a year) nor did she ask the location of the incident such as what highway it occurred on or the name of a nearby town even!  Ms. Short included an introduction to the interview where she states the witnesses encountered the incident in July of 1947 but there is nothing to base this on in the interview. As we shall see, it is more likely the witnesses encountered something in 1953 and not 1947.

    Secondly, from the information Mr.Mantle, the person requesting MUFON’s assistance, initially provided to SAT, it appears Mr. Jesse Slaughter was a Sheriff in Howard County, Texas in the 1930s up to 1940. Subsequent follow-up by SAT revealed there is a gap of ten years until he was again elected Sheriff in 1951 (not 1953 as mentioned below).

    I contacted the Howard County Texas Public Library and was sent this reply:

    From: “Reference” <reference@howardcountytx.com>
    To: “ROBERT” <robertspearing@comcast.net>

    Subject: RE: reference request

    Mr. Spearing,

    I could find no listings for past sheriffs of Howard County.  The attachment is an online search of the Big Spring Herald.  What I can determine is that Jess Slaughter was sheriff in the thirties. Then lost the position in 1940 and later won re-election in 1953.  Deputy C.H. Forgus became deputy under Sheriff Slaughter in 1953.

    You can access the Big Spring Herald online and search the articles like I did.  I could find no articles in the 1940’s listing Jess Slaughter as Sheriff.  I found one article listing him as the Juvenile Officer.  The caption below the picture at the bottom of the attachment provides a great deal of information if you can read it.

    Johnny Schafer, Reference Librarian

    Howard County Library

    Big Spring, TX

    This makes it unlikely that this was the Roswell crash of July 1947. 1953 or later is the best timeframe for the incident.

    Lastly, while I found numerous direct line members of the Forgus and Slaughter families, all attempts to contact them via Facebook and telephone have been unsuccessful. It is my feeling that they do not wish to respond.

    All indications are that they did not happen upon the Roswell Crash Incident. Mr. Forgus became a Deputy in 1953. Mr. Slaughter again became a Sheriff in 1951.  Best estimate is affair happened in 1953.

    The most important aspect of the story is that while no location is given we know from the transcript that the two men were travelling west inside New Mexico.

    We also know that according to Google Maps there are only two principal highways between Big Spring Texas and Roswell New Mexico – a northern and a southern route.

    The two routes referenced in the MUFON report.

    The two routes referenced in the MUFON report.

    The Northern Route-

    This route leaves Big Spring on a north-western trajectory and then turns due west to Roswell. The north-western leg of the route utilizes highway 87 north to highway 137 north. The turn westward uses Interstate 380 west for the remainder of the trip into Roswell. The important leg of this trek inside New Mexico from the Texas border to Roswell is approximately 85 miles on Route 380 west.

    The Southern Route-

    We leave Big Spring Texas heading due west on Route 176. At the Texas into New Mexico border route 176 becomes Rt. 234 and there are multiple routes to travel but in one good scenario described later, Route 234 west meets Route 18 North up to Hobbs and again goes west with Route 62 west to Route 529 west to Route 82 west to Route 285 north which brings you into Roswell from the South.  It is this route that is the most promising.

    The one caveat is that the Interstate Highway System was only under construction in the late 40s and early 50s. There may have been a more rural road in existence prior to the creation of Interstate 380.  Therefore, some parameters may have changed such as location of the road and the elimination of certain landmarks such as a small dry creek bed with a 20 foot drop to the embankment by a large group of trees which is crucial to any continuing investigation.

    THE SOUTHERN ROUTE SCENARIO

    The critical question is what did the two law enforcement officers see?

    Possible resolutions are:

    1. Extraterrestrial Craft with non-human pilots
    2. Military Exercise
    3. Plane Crash (military or civilian)
    4. American VTOL disc crash

    Since we no longer have witnesses to clarify their answers, perhaps the only avenue is to find a newspaper account. The southern route scenario offers a resolution.

    In the case of Roswell in 1947, thousands of pages of documentation have been scoured including aircraft crashes. The best course of action in this investigation was to pursue leads in 1953 when Forgus became a Deputy Sheriff.

    On August 28, 1953, the Reno Evening Gazette ran a small front page story on a military air crash that reads as follows:

    ELEVEN AIRMEN ESCAPE IN CRASH

    ROSWELL N.M. AUGUST 28, 1953 (AP)

    Eleven airmen escaped unhurt last night when their 4 engined B-50 bomber landed wheels up on gently rolling plains 35 miles southwest of Tatum, N.M. in southeast New Mexico. The plane of the 97th bomber wing at Biggs Air Force Base, El Paso Texas and piloted by Chester A. Walter, was on a routine training flight.

    (Credit: US Government/Wikimedia Commons)

    If one draws a map southwest of Tatum, the closest highway it approaches on Mr. Forgus and Mr. Slaughter’s southern route is Route 62 west about 42 miles west of Hobbs N.M. and about 10 degrees south of Tatum.  It is an almost perfect fit as it is approximately 36 miles southwest of Tatum.

    This would coincide with their westward trip shortly before they turned north to Roswell.

    There are problems with this August 28th story however. First, there were no dead bodies. All crew members survived. Second, the craft was not circular but had a plane’s fuselage. However, the front of the B-50 bomber had a very unique multi-windowed cockpit that seen straight on could have been construed as disc shaped.

    Additionally, Forgus reported the object as 100 feet in diameter. The B-50 was 99 feet long. Coincidence? It was also silver metallic.

    It is a stretch that the B-50 accident could have been the object seen by the lawmen but it is also quite reasonable given the circumstances given the color, cockpit shape, month and year etc.

    One theory is that the B-50 crash story was only a cover story to obfuscate the real story of a crash of a disc shaped object; a crash where pilots (human or non-human perished).

    It is also possible that if it was an American made VTOL disc shaped craft it was attempting to land on the highway but fell short due to mechanical difficulties. This would explain its proximity to the highway.

    In 1967 evidence was located at McDill Air Force Base that VTOLS as large as 116 feet in diameter had been built by the U.S. Military.

    An alien craft is unlikely in that it probably would not have wanted such a strategically unpleasant location to land if it was having difficulties. However, the two non-human pilot bodies, if accurate, pose a dilemma in this scenario.

    RECOMMENDATION AND CONCLUSION

    RECOMMENDATION

    If there is a MUFON Field Investigator living in the vicinity of Roswell, it may be beneficial to have him drive Route 380 between the Texas border and Roswell to see if he can identify the place described in Mr. Forgus’s deposition.

    If Route 380 can be ruled out, the roads between Hobbs, N.M AND Roswell N.M. should be travelled specifically Route 62 west to Route 529 west to Route 82 west to Route 285 north into Roswell to locate a small cliff and riverbed.

    If a good location candidate can be found, an excursion to the area would be in order to try and retrieve artefacts.

    In the event a FI cannot be enlisted, alternatives would include inquiring of the State Police or even tow truck company dispatchers in the Roswell area for the solicitation of information on a possible location.

    CONCLUSION

    It seems highly unlikely that Mr. Forgus was forging a story from untruths. His timeframe is off but it seems likely that he came across something unusual in the desert along with Mr. Slaughter.  At times his story stretches the truth such as the sheet flapping in the wind allowing him to see parts of the two corpses.  However, details such as that they were going to return a prisoner from Roswell to Big Spring are superfluous details a liar would not include.

    Unfortunately, the 1999 private investigator did not attempt to get an exact year or location thus crippling efforts 18 years later.

    It also seems more likely that the event occurred in 1953 when the U.S. Military was experimenting with Vertical Take off Landing (VTOL) disc shaped craft some of which were 100 feet in diameter and probably piloted by one or two airmen.

    It would also be a stretch based on the limited evidence we have to suggest the most likely scenario would be the crash of an alien disc.

    If the site cannot be found by a MUFON Field Investigator or other means, the case should be closed out as “INSUFFICIENT DATA.”

    — End of MUFON Report —

    We wish to make it clear that we are open minded with regards to the veracity of what Charles Forgus has claimed. We have found a discrepancy in his story as Sheriff Slaughter was not the Sheriff in 1947. We would also like say that we found the MUFON report extremely compelling and we agree with their findings.

    I dare say many of those that know far more than me about the Roswell Incident will write it off as it does not fit the known Roswell crash scenario.  All I will say is that we are working together to try and find any more information and I leave this ‘Roswell File’ open just-in-case.

    If anyone reading this has any information concerning the Roswell Incident we urge them to get in touch.

    UFO-jagers doen vreemde vondst op de rode planeet. Zijn dit gefossiliseerde botresten?

    UFO-jagers claimen gefossiliseerde botten te hebben gevonden op Mars. Ze analyseerden foto’s die zijn gemaakt door Marsrover Curiosity, meldt de Daily Mail.

    De rover van de NASA rijdt al sinds 2009 rond op de rode planeet en stuurt geregeld foto’s naar de aarde.

    De UFO-jagers beweren dat op twee foto’s botten zijn te zien die uit de grond steken. Het zou gaan om een dij- en een heupbeen.

    Meer dan ooit

    De foto’s zijn te zien in een video die is gemaakt door de groep Martian Archaeology. Volgens de groep wemelt het op Mars van leven.

    “Na jarenlang onderzoek ben ik er nu meer dan ooit van overtuigd dat er veel meer is op Mars dan de NASA wil toegeven,” schreef TJ Devereaux in een reactie.

    “Ik ben er zeker van dat intelligente levensvormen de planeet ooit bewoonden en daar nog steeds bestaan,” voegde hij toe.

    Nodige deining

    Eerder deze maand zorgden foto’s van Curiosity ook al voor de nodige deining. Afgelopen week fotografeerde de rover een mysterieuze cirkelvormige rotsformatie op het Marsoppervlak.

    UFO-jagers speculeerden dat de formatie was gemaakt door een andere levensvorm of dat het bouwsel onderdeel was van een nog grotere structuur.

    Experts stelden dat de vreemde steencirkel waarschijnlijk het gevolg was van een geologisch proces dat ook op aarde wordt waargenomen.

    DOOR NASA GEFOTOGRAFEERDE UFO OP MARS GAAT WERELD ROND ( VIDEO )

    De complete wereld is weer eens in de maling genomen door een nepvideo van Anonymous imitators waarin NASA buitenaards leven bekend zou maken. 

    Echter, NASA heeft waarschijnlijk tegelijkertijd wél iets vergeten weg te poetsen op één van haar Mars foto's en vanuit het oosten van ons land komen fantastische UFO beelden. 


    Het is het tijdperk van desinformatie, waarbij bepaalde groepen bewust de mensheid een verkeerde kant opsturen en tevens is er een grote groep die overal maling aan heeft zolang het maar de nodige advertentiekliks oplevert. 

    Zo is in enkele dagen tijd een video viraal gegaan die gemaakt zou zijn door Anonymous waarin wordt gezegd dat NASA buitenaards leven bekend zal maken. 

    De opname is gemaakt door iets of iemand die zegt Anonymous te zijn, maar het zeker niet is. De officiële Anonymous website is hier te vinden alsook het officiële Anonymous Youtube kanaal en op beiden kom je de bewuste video niet tegen. 

    In welke categorie de nep Anonymous video valt, waarbij bekendmaking van buitenaards leven door NASA wordt aangekondigd, is niet bekend. 

    Het volgende geeft misschien een indicatie: 

    The video, which runs with advertising, has garnered over half a million views. 

    Diezelfde video is inmiddels meer dan 2 miljoen keer bekeken en dat levert een behoorlijk bedrag aan advertentie-inkomsten op. 

    Het is natuurlijk een win-win situatie, want niet alleen de videomaker scoort goed met de advertenties, ook de websites die de video plaatsen zonder enig onderzoek en die vol staan met advertenties scoren goed. 

    NASA heeft inmiddels ook al gereageerd op de nepvideo en iedereen verzekert dat ze zeker niet op het punt staan om buitenaards leven bekend te maken. 

    Maar, iets waar NASA wat meer moeite mee heeft is een beeld dat op 17 maart 2017 is gemaakt door de Curiosity Rover op Mars. 

    Een foto die her en der de gemoederen ook aardig bezighoudt en in combinatie met de nep Anonymous video voor heel wat ophef heeft gezorgd. 

    De foto werd enkele dagen geleden geplaatst op het bekende Reddit forum en het object waar het om gaat ziet er als volgt uit:

    xxx

    Wat het ook moge zijn, duidelijk is dat het hier niet gaat om een natuurlijk gevormd iets in het landschap. Zelfs NASA met al haar fantasie zal dat argument dit keer niet kunnen gebruiken. 

    Nu is het moeilijk om de grootte van dit object vast te stellen omdat enig referentiepunt ontbreekt. Het is een object in een kaal Mars-landschap. 

    Op de originele foto bij NASA die een groter beeld geeft, zijn op de voorgrond de sporen te zien van de Curiosity Rover, waardoor we een iets beter idee krijgen. Een onderwezen gok: de grootte van een kleine auto? 

    Afgezien daarvan bevindt dit object zich klaarblijkelijk in een gebied waar tijdens de landing op Mars wat brokstukken van de landingsmodule terecht zijn gekomen. Dit object zou dan ook een onderdeel kunnen zijn van die oorspronkelijke module. 

    Echter, er zijn ook een aantal argumenten om aan te nemen dat dit niet zo is en één daarvan is dat het object er onbeschadigd uitziet. Normaal gesproken zijn brokstukken die na een landing op Mars terechtkomen ook écht brokstukken met allerlei beschadigen. 

    In dit geval lijkt het object zacht terecht te zijn gekomen alsof het normaal is geland en daarnaast heeft het natuurlijk ook wel enigszins het uiterlijk van een soort klein ruimteschip of UFO. 

    Maar goed, wij hebben slimme lezers en daar zullen er vast wel een paar tussen zitten die een goed idee hebben over wat dit object zou kunnen zijn. 

    En dan willen we graag jullie aandacht vragen voor een dame uit een landelijk gedeelte van Nederland, aan het accent te horen ergens in het oosten. 

    Zij maakt geregeld de meest mooie opnames van UFO’s in het Hollandse landschap, alleen haar video’s worden door zo goed als niemand gezien. 

    Kijk en bewonder de prachtige UFO’s die gewoon verschijnen tussen de dieren die je in de achtergrond hoort. Heel bijzonder en misschien ook wel weer een boodschap, wie weet. 


    De volgende opname is gemaakt op 21 juni 2017 rond middernacht: 

     

    Dit gebeurt allemaal in ons eigen landje. Een dame die de meest fantastische opnames maakt op het platteland en niemand die het ziet. Het zou wat ons betreft mooi zijn als daar verandering in komt.

    Weird diamond shaped object appears next to a tornado in the sky over Virginia

    While driving on route 28s in Virginia on June 23, 2017 Garcia Doores saw something strange happening in the sky on which she decided to stop in order to take images of a weird sky phenomenon that looks like a diamond shaped cloud that appeared next to a tornado.

    She wrote on her Facebook page the following: This is a real picture taken on route 28s in Virginia. I have never seen cloud shaped like a diamond, observe the tornado next to the diamond shaped cloud, then observe the second picture after the cloud itself spawned a high up tornado, taken Friday.

    As it seems unlikely that a cloud can turn into a perfect diamond shape it is quite possible that she has photographed an artificial object used for altering and manipulating the weather?

    Is this diamond shaped object a weather weapon that can create, steer and trigger tornadoes?

    TR3B SPACECRAFT FILMED IN RUSSIA - DARK GOVERNMENT TEST FLIGHT

    Ever since the Roswell UFO crash in 1947, there have been rumors about alien technology that was reverse engineered to develop a manmade spacecraft that uses anti-gravity technology.

    These projects are funded through dark government agencies who operate below the radar and have access to unlimited resources.

     Sounds farfetched? People need to realize that back in the 60's, the NSA already had access to computers that run at a clock-speed of roughly 650 megahertz. Only after 35 years, this type of technology was accessible to the general public. Imagine the technology that is currently being developed and will enter everyday live in 35 years...

    One of these secret projects has been the TR3B, a spacecraft that is capable of entering space. There is no official confirmation of this project, but during the last 2 decades, numerous UFO sightings could be attributed to this craft.

    It started in the late 80's with the Belgium UFO flap. Thousands of witnesses reported seeing a black triangular craft with 3 distinct light. The Belgian General Wilfried de Brouwer stated during a press conference that the movements of this aircraft (radar confirmed) were not feasible for manmade airplanes at the time.

    Recently a video from Russia emerged that shows the TR3B spacecraft flying through the sky. The craft is flying at a speed that is impossibly slow for regular airplanes. This might be the best video evidence of the existence of the TRB3 ever recorded.

    IT’s shiny. It’s sharp. It’s on Mars. It must be aliens! What appears to be a chunk of metal photographed by the Opportunity Rover has UFO buffs in a spin.

    The high contrast infra-red image, published by the Mars Exploratino Rover Mission (Opportunity: Panoramic Camera: Sol 348) was uploaded by the Opportunity Rover on March 17.

    It shows an unusually shiny, and jagged, object sitting neatly on top of the grainy surface of Mars’ Meridiani Planum.

    It has internet chat forum Reddit in rapture.

    If it looks odd, of course it must be aliens!

    But at least in this case the resolution is reasonably crisp. Not a blurry morass like most UFO ‘evidence’.

    “Looks like light glimmering off of a genuine spaceship on an alien planet in outer space,” one commentator noted.

    But, for that to be true, there’s the small matter of scale. At that distance from the Opportunity Rover, any inhabitants would probably have to be no larger than ants.

    A more down to Earth (though admittedly this is Mars we’re talking about here) suggestion was that it could be a piece of debris from the rover itself, or a heat shield from the craft that delivered it.

    Earthly trash is increasingly common on the Red Planet, especially after a string of mission failures in recent decades. Satellites have gone awry. Landers have crashed.

    Unidentified Flying Objects: The Great Deception

    Image result for foto alien

    The subject of UFOs presents us with quite an enigma. It deals with ambiguities, in a world where certainties are not just the norm; they are requisite. Otherwise, there is little seriousness to be afforded something that, while seemingly tangible within the context of a body of data purporting to offer good evidence, remains so inescapably odd and downright unreal.

    In the past, I have devoted a good bit of time to the assessment of “what a UFO is,” though honestly, there are times where I begin to question whether they can be easily defined at all. To illustrate this, the most common idea about UFOs present today addresses the subject through a lens of unreality, in which strange objects in the skies are taken to be alien spaceships. A host of conspiracy theories (yes, conspiracy theories) exist that offer “evidence” of this: crash landings in the American southwestern deserts, purported extraterrestrial assessment teams like the so-called “MJ-12”, and hosts of reports from proclaimed abductees who discuss their interactions with Star Guests that literally point to where in the universe they hail from.

    Who knows. For all you or I may be able to discern, any (or all) of the above may be true. However, there appears to be so little hard evidence to substantiate such claims, despite years and years of collective research by the UFO community, that at times the silence begins to seem damning.

    new-mexico-roswell-international-ufo-museum

    To be clear, my best assessment of the subject is that there is a phenomenon, though it remains ambiguous, and no conclusive data seems to exist that clearly, irrevocably indicates that the sole source is extraterrestrial visitation. My colleague Nick Redfern (who, as I write this, will soon be en route to the location where I’m staying here in Texas, for a coffee and a chat about all this), also wrote about this recently at MU, noting the way his ideas and attitudes have changed over the decades, carrying him along from a once-believer in ET or alien UFOs, to his present position as one who, like the late John Keel, thinks UFOs may be “something masquerading as aliens.”

    Interestingly, the UFOs (or their occupants, if they have any) may not be the ones hiding behind the extraterrestrial meme at all. It very well could be that while some kind of phenomenon does exist, our perception of an “alien” origin is our very own creation, rather than something that is intentionally presented to for purpose of misdirection.

    I nonetheless think Keel was fairly close with his assessment. It may be that Nick and I would agree on many points, or that we may not, as far as any “final conclusions” go. But I think that it is telling that so many researchers who have looked seriously at this phenomenon over the years begin to move further from the “extraterrestrial hypothesis” (ETH), which at one time had seemed the most likely conclusion.

    alien

    Back in the mid to late 1980s, UFO researcher Jacques Vallee had begun to express serious doubts about an extraterrestrial component underlying the UFO phenomenon. His five primary arguments against the ETH were as follows:

    1. Unexplained close encounters are far more numerous than required for any physical survey of the earth
    2. the humanoid body structure of the alleged “aliens” is not likely to have originated on another planet and is not biologically adapted to space travel
    3. the reported behavior in thousands of abduction reports contradicts the hypothesis of genetic or scientific experimentation on humans by an advanced race
    4. the extension of the phenomenon throughout recorded human history demonstrates that UFOs are not a contemporary phenomenon
    5. the apparent ability of UFOs to manipulate space and time suggests radically different and richer alternatives

    One may, for sake of argument, dispute Vallee’s assessments, just as I have (despite essentially sharing his views). One reason for this is because, if we are to make a scientific argument, we must be careful to check for whether it is falsifiable. While UFO incidents seem to exceed the amount required for an alien survey of our planet, who knows what kinds of scientific motivations, and hence what other requirements, an “alien survey” might call for? Also, with no comparison as far as life on other planets, can we be sure that extraterrestrials would not possess features very similar to humans? We could go on, but the fundamental point remains that virtually any argument presented about UFOs could be debated… while I could continue the exercise of deconstructing Vallee’s analysis here, seemingly lending support to the ETH, I will nonetheless point out again that the ETH can be deconstructed just as simply; we are left with nothing that is truly conclusive about the phenomenon at the end of the day.

    For the modern skeptic, this lack of clarity on the subject is roughly equivalent to no subject at all, rather than an apparent phenomenon that remains ambiguous. In likelihood, if there is anything more to UFOs than a cultural belief system and/or a social movement built around the idea, the first step toward understanding what they may be is to start thinking outside the box.

    Extraordinary claims do require extraordinary evidence, as is so often said; but maybe it’s time that a bit of ordinary thinking should be applied to the subject, rather than going to such lengths to “prove” something extraordinary, when it may be very different in the end.

    The Hoaxers: A Sordid History of “Anomalous Mail” and Bogus UFO Documents

    Throughout the 1960s, Fortean researcher John Keel, author of The Mothman Prophecies and a number of other decidedly weird, but thoughtful books on the unexplained, was almost equally renowned for his active correspondence with his contemporaries in the field. And, as expected, if the contents of the excellent John Keel blog maintained by Doug Skinner (which can be seen here) is any indication, some of Keel’s exchanges were pretty strange, too.

    Like, for instance, the letter where Keel wrote a private correspondence to himself, which he refrained from sending out to anyone specific, but instead used as a sort of test to see whether a group of entities he called the “Androids” were able to read his mind. Keel was very much an open-minded adventurist, both in practice, and in thought, and his troves of letters and personal documents featured at Skinner’s site over the last few years have offered a fascinating inside-look at Keel, his beliefs, and his attitudes on various things.

    Keel was often on the receiving end of messages too, a number of which were weird enough that Keel, referring to them as “crank” letters, created an entire subcategory for them in his extensive notes and documentation, dubbing them “anomalous mail.” An all-time favorite example of such unusual mail had been a letter Keel received in the fall of 1967, purporting to have been from a shadowy group of individuals identified only by the name appearing at the letter-head: “The International Bankers.”

    The ominously-toned message read as follows:

    It continued to say that, “Others have tried, without success, to find out things that do not concern them, such as Dr. Jessup, Al Bender and others who you do not even know about.

    “Do not overstep your bounds Mr. Keel, even your own government cannot protect you from our powers.

    “Remember Mr. Keel 1968 A.D. will have Black as its symbol.”

    Keel noted one especially peculiar aspect of these sorts of “anomalous letters”; the fact that, in Keel’s opinion, they contained various misspellings, which at times appeared to be intentional:

    You will note that the word “comping” is misspelled. Misspellings of simple words are a common factor in mail of this sort. These often seem quite deliberate. (i.e., a witness in West Virginia received a note containing the word “want” instead of the intended “won’t”.) The vague prediction that 1968 would be a “black year” proved disturbingly accurate. 1968 proved to be a year of widespread civil disturbances and the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy.

    Rather obviously, someone had been pranking Keel with these dark, and at times rather elaborate letters. Commenting on the possible source of the letters, Doug Skinner notes that, “Somebody, though, went to the trouble of printing stationery and sending out crank letters.  I suspect that it was Gray Barker, cooking up confusion again; although I suppose it’s unfair to blame all ufological pranks on him.” Whether or not this is indeed the case remains undetermined.

    In some ways, one might argue that the tradition of “crank letters” has continued to some extent. With the recent “addenda” to the famous Majestic 12 documents that surfaced last week, we saw a similar, “traditional” pairing of absurdities (an alien purportedly sitting and having a tree-huggerish, “save your planet” moment with USAF officials, for instance) with numerous common misspellings… something my fellow Mysterious Universe blogger Nick Redfern also took issue with.

    In fact, in another recent post here at Mysterious Universe, Redfern made a similar connection between the hoax-letters of yesteryear, as well as their perpetrators… some of them had been Keel’s contemporaries. Redfern notes a document that had been carefully altered by ufologists Gray Barker and Jim Moseley, which led to a convincing looking hoax letter that was sent to the alleged contactee George Adamski.

    “Moseley and Barker were just having a bit of fun during a late-night drinking session,” Redfern points out. “The idea that the new MJ12 documents are the work of someone in Ufology who is desperate to see Roswell vindicated – as a UFO event, at least – is not out of the question.”

    In fact, I spoke with Nick about this on a recent edition of my Gralien Report Podcast, in which the subject was raised by Race Hobbs as to whether there might be legalities concerning the alteration of real government documents, or borrowing letterhead from them in order to make bogus documents look more convincing.

    “That’s an interesting sort of concept,” Nick said. “The idea that if you’ve got… let’s say legitimate, DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) headed papers on, I don’t know, North Korea, and you white out certain bits and insert new material in the spaces on Roswell, then you photocopy it, and photocopy it again to make it look a bit older… is it actually a crime to do that?”

    Whatever the case, with the new alleged “Majestic 12” documents that have been released, what we’re seeing is by no means anything new… in fact, it seems to be a sort of continuation of a time-honored tradition of ufological hoaxes that have surfaced over the last half century.

    ‘Biological Teleportation’ Edges Closer With Craig Venter’s Digital-to-Biological Converter

    The year is 2030. In a high-security containment lab, scientists gathered around a towering machine, eagerly awaiting the first look at a newly discovered bacterium on Mars.

    With a series of beeps, the machine—a digital-to-biological converter, or DBC—signaled that it had successfully received the bacterium’s digitized genomic file. Using a chemical cocktail comprised of the building blocks of DNA, it whirled into action, automatically reconstructing the alien organism’s genes letter-by-letter.

    Within a day, scientists had an exact replica of the Martian bacterium.

    To Craig Venter, the genetics maverick who created the first synthetic life form in 2016, beaming aliens back to recreate on Earth may sound like science fiction, but is “potentially real.”

    Recently, working with Daniel Gibson, vice president of DNA technology at Synthetic Genomics, Venter published a prototype DBC capable of downloading digitized DNA instructions and synthesizing biomolecules from scratch.

    Not only did the futuristic machine pump out functional bits of DNA, vaccines, and proteins, it also automatically synthesized viral particles from scratch.

    Teleporting alien life to Earth is just one role Venter envisions for the DBC. Working the other way, we may be able to send Earth’s extremophile bacteria to a printer on Mars. If genetically enhanced to pump out oxygen, the bacteria may slowly change the Martian landscape, making it more habitable to humans before we ever set foot on the Red Planet.

    More close to home, the DBC could allow instant, on-demand access to life-saving medicine or vaccines during an outbreak or finally enable access to personalized medicine.

    “We are excited by the commercial prospects of this revolutionary tool, as we believe the DBC represents a major leap forward in advancing new vaccines and biologics,” says Venter in a press release.

    All life is code

    At the basis of Venter’s foray into “biological teleportation” is the idea that all life forms—at least on Earth—are essentially DNA software systems. DNA directs and creates the more tangible biological “hardware” made of proteins, cells, and tissues.

    Because DNA contains all the necessary information to boot up a life form, by hacking its code and writing our own, we now have the power to create living organisms never before seen on Earth.

    Back in 2010, Venter inserted a bacterial genome completely synthesized from chemicals in the lab into a single-cell recipient. The synthetic genome booted up the living bacterium, allowing it to replicate into a large colony of artificial organisms. Six years later, his team ventured even further into the realm of science fiction, creating a new bacteria species with just 437 genes—the absolute known minimum amount of genetic code needed to support life.

    These studies and others clearly show we now have a new set of tools that allow scientists to manufacture new living species to join “our planet’s inventory of life.” But why stop there? If life is nothing but code that can be packaged, emailed, downloaded, and copied, why not use the same technology to transmit life?

    Digital-to-Biological Converter

    The DBC is Venter’s attempt to transfer and manufacture life.

    Standing at eight feet long and six feet tall, the machine is a Frankenstein beast of mechanical blocks and wires splayed out across a double-deck table. “We’re working on the portability of the machine using new technologies such as microfluidic chips and microarrays,” explained the authors.

    Equipped with an ethernet hub, the DBC downloads DNA files from the internet and prints the code using the four chemical bases of DNA—adenosine, guanine, thymine, and cytosine (A, G, T, C).

    “It’s packaging complex biology that each of our tiny cells do remarkably well at a much, much smaller scale,” explains Venter.

    While automated DNA printers have already hit the market, the DBC takes it one step further. The machine is capable of building proteins from the genetic code (printing biological hardware, so to speak), bringing it one step closer to building living cells from scratch.

    At the heart of the system is Archetype, proprietary software that optimally breaks down the input DNA sequence into more manageable short sequences to synthesize in parallel. This massively increases efficiency and reduces sequencing errors that increase with longer DNA strands.

    Once assembled, the machine scans the strands for any errors before “pasting” the bits back into complete DNA assembles. From there, a series of robotic arms transfer the DNA from module to module, automatically adding reagents that turn the synthetic genes into functional proteins.

    Synthetic Medicine

    In one proof-of-concept study, the machine pumped out green fluorescent protein, an algae protein that often serves as an experimental canary in the lab. Following the DBC run, the resulting product glowed bright green as expected, and subsequent analysis found that over 70 percent of all synthesized molecules were error-free.

    While impressive, the team acknowledges that future models need to do better.

    “All it takes is one DNA base to be incorrect for a protein not to work, or a therapeutic to not do what it’s supposed to, or for a cell to not be functional,” warns Gibson.

    In another experiment, the DBC successfully produced functional flu viral particles, RNA vaccines, and bacteriophages—viruses that infect bacteria that can be used to combat infections or even cancer.

    That’s huge. “If there is a pandemic, everyone around you is dying and you cannot go outdoors, you can download the vaccine in a couple of seconds from the internet,” says Venter. A machine like this in hospitals, homes, and remote areas could revolutionize medicine.

    Venter also has his eye on personalized medicine. In the future, if you have an infection you get its genome sequenced in minutes, he says. The doctor could then cross-reference your bug with an online database, download and print the available phage treatments in office and send you on your way.

    Space Travel

    Venter’s ambition doesn’t stop there. He imagines combining the DBC with technologies from his synthetic organisms to construct a “blank slate” recipient cell capable of producing food, oxygen, and fuel—the perfect workhorse to send around the world or into space.

    In theory, the cell would be capable of receiving any synthetic genome designed to produce life-supporting molecules. These cells have to be engineered, says Venter, but stresses that it can be done.

    Having a DBC on board means a crew hurtling through space would no longer rely on supply ship rendezvous—and we’ll never have a real life Mark Watney starved and stranded on Mars.

    But that’s looking way far ahead.

    According to Gibson, before we get too distracted with fanciful thoughts of space, a lot more work still has to be done. For one, the DBC needs to shrink down to a more manageable size. For another, current DNA synthesis technologies are incredibly inefficient and wasteful—“about 99.999 percent of the raw materials go to waste,” he says—a problem further magnified as the team moves on to larger DNA constructs.

    These aren’t small challenges, but the DBC shows that biological teleportation for biological materials is feasible. So why not aim high?

    “Mine is not a fantasy look at the future,” says Venter. “The goal isn’t to imagine this stuff. We are the scientists actually doing this.”

    IT'S COMING: Shock claim that we are on the brink of being told aliens have visited Earth

    THE US Government could soon crack and admit it has secretly been hiding evidence of alien visitations of Earth for the last 70 years, it has astonishingly been claimed.

    Steve-Bassett

    GETTY*EXPRESS

    Steve Bassett is fundraising to try to force the US Government to come clean about aliens.

    The Paradigm Research Group (PRG), which campaigns to bring an end to an alleged "truth embargo" to keep the truth from the globe, believes there will soon be no going back for government insiders.

    Steve Bassett, executive director of the group is the only registered lobbyist in the US on the issue of alien disclosure.

    He is convinced that the shocking secret has been withheld amid fears of the impact it would have on religion and the rule of law since a flying saucer allegedly crashed in the New Mexico desert outside Roswell in 1947.

    Mr Bassett is now seeking $50,000 to help fund the campaign to pressurise the White House to roll over and say "yes, we've deceived you for the last 70 years."

    He has launched an End The Truth Embargo fundraising page on gofundme.com.

    Mr Bassett says on the page: "This funding effort is in service to every citizen of every nation now convinced the world should not wait one more day for confirmation we are not alone is this universe. 

    "For 70 years this truth has been embargoed by your government. 

    "After 20 years of engagement of the issue, I know this embargo can end soon with your help." 

    He says the money will be used to set up a permanent office in Washington DC for PRG to "keep the pressure on the media to engage the politics of disclosure throughout 2017."

    Mr Bassett said the cash would also all PRG to: "Seek professional speaker representation, make contact with officials in European countries, develop video media for use in the disclosure advocacy movement, built up the Exopolitics World Network and United States Network, and consolidate, redesign and update PRG's many websites and Facebook pages."

    PRG was bouyed on May 28 when during an interview on CBS 60 Minutes billionaire space engineer, Robert Bigelow, remarkably revealed he believed there is an "extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race." 

    Mr Bassett said: "He spoke truth to power. He stated unequivocally there is an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. When asked if he was concerned what people might think of that statement, he replied, 'I don't give a damn.' 

    This funding campaign will ensure PRG can adjust to new strategies to ultimately bring the White House and the Pentagon to the table to work out the necessary understanding allowing disclosure.

    Steve Bassett

    "PRG salutes Mr Bigelow and asks, 'Who will join him?'

    "This funding campaign will ensure PRG can adjust to new strategies to ultimately bring the White House and the Pentagon to the table to work out the necessary understanding allowing disclosure."

    The funding campaign is being conducted in conjunction with Coast to Coast AM with George Noory - described as "the most listened to late night talk program in America." Coast to Coast AM has for the past 25 years provided a platform for researchers, activists, "alien contactees", and other UFO witnesses.

    So far Mr Bassett has been pledged $6,123 of his target.

    It comes after fellow disclosure activist Dr Steven Greer claimed US intelligence moles were trying to break open the truth but were concerned about what will happen to them.

    However, sceptics argue that Mr Bassett and Dr Greer are simply conspiracy theorists, who have got it wrong, and no aliens have ever visited Earth.

    Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse-Tyson has dismissed the whole UFO/alien truth seeker community as having no credible evidence.

    People like Mr DeGrasse-Tyson believe anyone who donated to the fund would be wasting their cash, as there is simply nothing to disclose as no aliens have ever been here.

    NASA announcement after ‘Anonymous’ claims space agency is about to CONFIRM aliens exist

    NASA has released a statement after a video reportedly produced by hactivist group Anonymous said the US space agency was about to reveal that intelligent aliens exist.

    Alien-NASA

    GETTY

    The Anonymous video about NASA was a hoax.

    The official comments, however, will upset alien chasers who had hoped there had been a real disclosure made by the hactivists.

    Laurie Cantillo, NASA Lead Communications Specialist, said in a statement to Fox News: "While we’re excited about the latest findings from NASA’s Kepler space observatory, there’s no pending announcement regarding extraterrestrial life. 

    "For years NASA has expressed interest in searching for signs of life beyond Earth. 

    "We have a number of science missions that are moving forward with the goal of seeking signs of past and present life on Mars and ocean worlds in the outer solar system. 

    "While we do not yet have answers, we will continue to work to address the fundamental question, ‘are we alone?’”

    It was reported yesterday that Anonymous had announced: "NASA says aliens are coming!"

    The emergence of the video made headlines across the globe yesterday.

    However, worse still, the video was a hoax, and not even a genuine Anonymous video.

    The video was made by YouTube channel Anonymous Global, which has made itself look like the YouTube account of the genuine hactivist group, famed for its hacks on official authorities, and its Million Mask Marches across the globe.

    Anonymous has previously said there are many other people claiming to be part of the group who are not.

    The video based its assertion on a recent meeting of the US Science Space and Technology Committee.

    It was there that Professor Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate, said the world was "on the verge of making one of the most profound, unprecedented, discoveries in history".

    But Mr Zurbuchen's genuine remarks had been publicly made and previously reported.

    He was referring to the space agency's expectations of finding simple microorganisms of alien life somewhere in the solar system over the next few decades.

    He is now seeking $50,000 (£38,000) to help fund the campaign to put pressure on the White House with an “End The Truth Embargo” gofundme page.

    "This funding effort is in service to every citizen of every nation now convinced the world should not wait one more day for confirmation we are not alone is this universe,” he writes.

    “For 70 years this truth has been embargoed by your government.

    "After 20 years of engagement of the issue, I know this embargo can end soon with your help."

    The funding campaign is being conducted in conjunction with Coast to Coast AM with George Noory – described as "the most listened to late night talk program in America."

    Coast to Coast AM has for the past 25 years provided a platform for researchers, activists, "alien contactees" and other UFO witnesses.

    So far, Mr Bassett has raised $6,123 (£4,600).

    AI to Ensure Fewer UFOs

    To respond to a plague of drones, airports and other venues deploy AI systems to track and identify intruders

    By JEREMY HSU

    Is it a bird? A plane? Or is it a remotely operated quadrotor conducting surveillance or preparing to drop a deadly payload? Human observers won’t have to guess—or keep their eyes glued to computer monitors—now that there’s superhuman artificial intelligence capable of distinguishing drones from those other flying objects. Automated watchfulness, thanks to machine learning, has given police and other agencies tasked with maintaining security an important countermeasure to help them keep pace with swarms of new drones taking to the skies.

    The security challenge has only grown over the past few years: Millions of people have bought consumer drones and sometimes flown them into off­limits areas where they pose a hazard to crowds on the ground or larger aircraft in the sky. Off-the-shelf drones have also become affordable and dangerous weapons for the Islamic State and other militant groups in war-torn regions such as Iraq and Syria.

    The need to track and possibly take down these flying intruders has spawned an antidrone market projected to be worth close to US $2 billion by the mid-2020s. The lion’s share of that haul will likely go to companies that can best leverage the power of machine-learning AI based on neural networks.

    But much of the antidrone industry still lags behind the rest of the tech sector in making effective use of machine learning AI, says David Romero, founder and managing partner of Black Sage Technologies, based in Boise, Idaho. “With machine learning, 90 percent of the work is figuring out how to make it so simple so that the customer doesn’t have to know how machine learning works,” says Romero. “Many companies do that well, but not in the defense community.”

    He and Ross Lam, his Black Sage cofounder, are poised to take advantage of this opening for the upstarts looking to take on the defense industry’s giants. They initially collaborated on a project that trained ­machine-learning algorithms to automatically detect deer on highways based on radar and infrared camera data. Eventually, they realized that the same approach could help spot drones and other unidentified flying objects.

    Since the self-funded startup’s launch in 2015, it has won multiple contracts from the United States government—including for U.S. military forces deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan—and from U.S. allies.

    Romero says it’s fairly straightforward to apply machine learning to the task of automatically detecting and classifying flying objects. But because the stakes are high—mistakenly shooting down a small passenger plane or failing to take out an explosives-laden drone intruder could be equally disastrous—Black Sage puts its system through a rigorous training phase when it’s installed at a new site. The system’s radar and infrared cameras capture information about each unidentified flying object’s velocity, size, altitude, and so forth. Then a human operator helps train the machine-learning­ algorithms by positively identifying certain classes of drones (rotor or fixed-wing) as well as other objects such as birds or manned aircraft. For proof that it has learned its lessons well, the AI is tested against 20 percent of the positively identified data set—the part reserved specifically for cross validation.

    Another company called Dedrone—originally based in Kassel, Germany, but currently headquartered in San Francisco­—is taking a similar approach. When a Dedrone system is being installed at a new site, humans label unfamiliar objects as part of the training process, which also updates the company’s proprietary DroneDNA library. Since its launch in 2014, Dedrone’s machine-learning software has helped safeguard events and locations such as a Clinton-Trump presidential debate, the World Economic Forum, and CitiField, home of the New York Mets baseball team.

    “Each time we update DroneDNA, we process over 250 million different images of drones, aircraft, birds, and other objects,” says Michael Dyballa, Dedrone’s director of engineering. “In the past eight months, we’ve annotated 3 million drone images.”

    Though Black Sage’s and Dedrone’s automated detection systems are said to be capable of running without human assistance after their respective training phases, the companies’ clients may choose to put humans in the loop for engaging active defenses, such as jammers or lasers, to take down flying intruders. Such caution is critical at sites like airports, where drone detection accuracy greater than 90 percent still means the occasional false alarm or case of mistaken identity. Even so, a human’s interpretive ability can only supplement the ceaseless vigilance that AI systems will need to provide as the number of drones continues to rise.

    US intelligence moles 'trying to leak alien truth that will be bigger than Watergate'

    US SECRET service agents, who allegedly know about an alien cover up, are trying to expose the truth it has shockingly been claimed.

    Former medic Dr Steven Greer, a leading figure in the alien disclosure movement, claims to have contacts on the inside who are trying to work out how to leak the truth without putting themselves in danger.

    Alien conspiracy theorists claim that a so-called "truth embargo" has been in place since the 1940s after aliens crash landed on Earth and the evidence was squirrelled away by the US Government amid fears the impact of knowing "we are not alone" would have on religion and the rule of law.

    Dr Greer claims the truth is so top-secret that sub groups within government would not even confirm it to the president. 

    He goes one step further and alleges it is a military-industrialist cabal of semi-public/semi-private interests and has access to technology reverse-engineered from alleged crashed UFOs.

    Alien-Truth

    YouTube*GETTY

    Dr Steven Greer makes an outlandish claim in his documentary unacknowledged

    He told the Toronto Star: "One of the reasons I’m doing what I’m doing is that there are people within the intelligence community who don’t know how to get themselves out of that hole and yet they’re very supportive of disclosure, and they’ve told me this.

    “If you read between the lines of what I just said, what I’m saying to you — and you’re welcome to print this — is that there are some very powerful interests who realise that they are stuck in this black hole and they don’t know how to get out of it because it would create a scandal thousands of times worse than Watergate or Russia-gate or whatever the latest scandal is that the Washington Post and the New York Times and perhaps your paper are obsessing on.”

    So how does Dr Greer justify such outlandish claims?

    He added: “Look, we stampeded into Iraq after 9/11 without there being a scintilla of evidence that Iraq had anything to do with 9/11 and we know now that that was completely a hoax.

    One of the reasons I’m doing what I’m doing is that there are people within the intelligence community who don’t know how to get themselves out of that hole and yet they’re very supportive of disclosure, and they’ve told me this.

    Dr Steven Greer

    “So the question becomes how easy is it for the intelligence community using their mouthpieces in the media to put out a scenario that would scare the hell out of people so that people would give up their liberties and their finances and what have you — their blood and treasure — to stampede into the next big thing, which has been planned for 60 years and that is a conflict between humans and other planetary societies.

    “Now, it’s completely nonsensical. It’s as nonsensical as going into Iraq was, but we did go into Iraq and there are hundreds of thousands of people dead as a result and now Syria has blown apart. So there are consequences to this.

    “The majority of people already believe there is intelligent life out there and the last poll I saw said that 43 percent of Americans think we’re currently being visited. 

    "More than half the public all over the world believes that UFOs are real and that governments are hiding something. So that battle has been won, but the larger argument has to still be engaged."

    Dr Greer spoke to the paper about his new film Unacknowledged: An Exposé of the Greatest Secret in Human History, ahead of its Toronto premier. 

    Looking at the alleged cover up over the years, it is directed by Michael Mazzola and narrated by Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito.

    Dr Greer got $700,000 (£543,000) through crowd funding to make it happen, and it looks at his work with The Disclosure Project, set up to try to lift an alleged "truth embargo" on the existence of aliens.

    He said: "And that’s why we made this film, in part, to expose what the secret agenda has been and the disinformation campaigns.”

    Why were the RAF ordered to ignore mysterious lights seen floating over Skegness for SEVEN hours?

    BY 

    File photo. A UFO was spotted over Skegness in 1996 and the RAF were told to ignore it

    File photo. A UFO was spotted over Skegness in 1996 and the RAF were 'told to ignore it'

    Mysterious lights were seen in the sky over Skegness for seven hours - but the RAF were ordered to ignore it, files have revealed.

    The incident happened over the Skegness coast on October 5, 1996, and lights were reported in the sky for a period of seven hours - both by police and the public.

    Now "Britain's X Files" show the object was spotted on a military radar but the RAF were told to ignore it after it was “overruled at the highest level”.

    A report by the Sun claimed an unnamed government official criticised the former Defence Secretary Michael Portillo for the military's "absolute shambles" of a reaction.

    The letter, which is typed on House of Commons headed paper, said: "I am very concerned about an incident that occurred off the Anglian Coast recently, involving a visual unidentified flying craft sighting which was correlated by various different military radar systems.”

    It added that it was "incredible" that "no aircraft were scrambled when an uncorrelated target was picked up so close to the coast” and that “this raises serious issues about the way in which we police the UK’s Air Defence Region”.

    The letter also questions why RAF Coningsby was over-ruled when it wanted to scramble aircraft to the scene.

    It added: "The RAF is supposed, or so I believed, to be keeping a watchful eye on activity in the UK, but seem to have no idea what is going on.

    “Do they have standard procedure for these incidents? They had enough time to think about it, because the object was on our radar for upwards of seven hours!

    “While I am interested in finding out what was seen, my primary concern stems from the absolute shambles that such events seem to cause.”

    Documents outlining the investigation into the incident concluded that several phenomena were to blame for the red, white and blue flashing lights that were seen above the horizon.

    They are also named in the documents as a "celestial source".

    The official file on the incident said: "The prolonged sighting of stationary coloured flashing lights reported by the Skegness Police on 5 October 1996 had no significance for the integrity of UK airspace and no associated air vehicle was detected by civil or military radars.”

    The documents are part of 15 files that have been published by the National Archives. Three are still yet to be published.

    The documents have not been digitised and can only be viewed at the National Archives in Kew, West London.

    Project Blue Book Origins — Part 1 of 3

    Columnist Cheryl Costa begins a three-part series of articles on Project Blue Book.

    Back on May 25 of this year, a news item in Variety magazine announced that famed director Robert Zemeckis had teamed up with A&E to produce a 10-episode drama series about Project Blue Book for the History Channel. For those unfamiliar with Blue Book, it was an Air Force’s effort from 1952 to 1969, charged with the responsibility to investigate reports of Unidentified Flying Objects. Let’s take brief a look at the convoluted origins of Project Blue Book.

    PROJECT SIGN

    During World War II numerous bomber crews reported seeing luminous balls and discs in their air space while flying missions. These unknown high performance flying objects became known as “foo fighters.” The Army Air Force’s investigative effort into foo fighters was very first by intelligence officers into the mysterious topic of UFOs.

    In 1947, the Air Force separated from the Army and became a branch onto itself. That same year, Air Materiel Command at Wright-Patterson Air Field received orders to direct the Technical Intelligence Division to conduct a classified inquiry into UFOs. The principle reason was that the Air Force had taken a keen interest in UFOs because they had been frequently observed near various sensitive military facilities in the Southwest. In addition, during June and July of that year, UFO reports came in from over 38 states and were widely reported in the press.

    Under pressure to come up with answers, Major General L. C. Craigie, director of Research and Development for the Air Force, directed the establishment of a research group code named Project Sign.

    After eight months of interviewing highly credible witnesses, conducting investigations and analyzing the data, it was time to report some findings. The Technical Intelligence Division at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, in concert with personnel from Project Sign, decided to author the Estimate of the Situation document.

    By all accounts the top secret document allegedly concluded that some of the UFOs were of extraterrestrial origin. These conclusions did not sit well with Air Force Chief of Staff General Hoyt S. Vandenberg, who was reported to have rejected the Estimate of the Situation findings. It is alleged that all copies of the report were subsequently destroyed.

    PROJECT GRUDGE

    It’s been my observation that military generals who aren’t happy about the performance of a unit or perhaps the results of a project frequently clean house of at least key command personnel, and sometimes there’s a clean sweep within the ranks.

    General Vandenberg, being less than happy or confident with the results of Project Sign, ordered a massive change in personnel. The replacement staff had a new set of operating principles; simply that all these UFO reports could be explained in realistic and conventional terms. The new unit was renamed in February of 1949 with a new code name: Project Grudge.

    It was the Project Grudge team that established the cultural perspective that UFOs were:

    1. Misinterpretations of various conventional objects.
    2. A mild form of mass-hysteria and war nerves.
    3. Individuals who fabricate such reports to perpetuate a hoax or to seek publicity.
    4. Psychopathological persons.

    The Project Grudge team also put forth the concern that an enemy could release strange aerial objects, augmented with psychological propaganda. The effect of an enemy action like this, they proposed, could be used to generate mass hysteria. The Pentagon’s Office of Psychological Warfare confirmed this notion of psychological warfare to induce war nerves and mass fear among the civilian population.

    As a secret UFO investigation military entity, Project Grudge didn’t do much better than Project Sign in getting to the bottom of the UFO phenomena. The unit only lasted about eight months. In the final report of their UFO investigations, it listed UFO sighting reports totaling 273. Despite Project Grudge’s policy that UFOs are just misidentified conventional objects, hysteria, war nerves, hoaxes and deranged persons, their final report listed 23 percent, or 63 cases, as “unidentified.”

    If you are interested in joining a monthly UFO discussion group in the Onondaga County area, drop Cheryl an email at Blogger@CherylCosta.com. If you have a UFO sighting to report, you can use either one of the two national database services: nuforc.org or mufon.com. Both services respect confidentiality. Follow me on Twitter @American_Skies.

    Orlando witness reports object hovering over building

    A Florida witness at Orlando reported watching a cylinder-shaped object silently hovering over a nearby building, according to testimony in Case 84126 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

    The witness was driving along Conway Road near the Judge Road intersection when the object was observed hovering over a nearby building. (Credit: Google)

    The witness was driving along Conway Road near the Judge Road intersection when the object was observed hovering over a nearby building.

    The witness was driving along Conway Road in Orlando, heading north from Tradeport Avenue at 9:12 p.m. on June 1, 2017, when the incident began.

    “This is a common area that planes are landing in, so seeing lights in the sky approaching us was very normal to see,” the witness stated.“I drive down this street almost daily around the same time, so am used to seeing certain sights along the way.”

    While approaching a red light at Judge Road, the witness and a sister noticed planes approaching them when one looked out of place.

    “I joked about how it could be a UFO because of how odd the flight pattern and lights were. We both kept steady on it; I watching while trying to pay attention to the cars in front of me. It approached us closer and closer and we both got nervous because it was the size of a plane hovering over the building off to the right side of us, maybe 50feet or less away from where we were.”

    The two watched as the object hovered over a building, with lights flashing, with no sound.

    “We waited to see if we were seeing things, if it was actually moving and maybe we didn’t see the movement for whatever reason. No movement, still hovering over the building and flashing lights. About 10-15 seconds after we realized it was not a plane and that we were in fact seeing a giant object hovering over a building next to us, it disappeared.”

    The witness could hear so sound coming from the object. Pictured: Conway Road near the Judge Road intersection. (Credit: Google)

    The witness pulled off to the side of the road to see if the lights appeared anywhere.

    “Nothing. The area was clear, its path had no obstructions, yet it was nowhere to be seen. So where could it have possibly gone? The rest of the way home, 15 minutes total, we talked about what to do next. Tell someone? File a report? Keep it to ourselves? We are definitely sure of what we saw. This was not normal and definitely not a plane.”

    Florida MUFON Field Investigator Robert Andrews investigated this case and closed it as an Unknown UAV.

    “In speaking with the witness,” Andrews stated in his report,“she said the sky was clear (no low hanging clouds) and she did not observe any smoke or other anomalies in the area. She remains quite certain that she saw ‘something’ that seemed to be hovering over the buildings with white and blue lights, but has no idea of what it may have been.

    “I also considered that maybe there were low clouds and the light reflecting from the ground or overhead aircraft caused an optical illusion for the witness. However, I did not find any evidence to support that theory.

    “The location of these building in relation to the airport flight path and the very low altitude of planes normal landing approach would seem to rule out the likelihood of any commercial or private aircraft flying through this area except as in a landing approach.

    “The only other plausible scenario is that the witness viewed reflections from street lights, landing aircraft and interior lights of her vehicle reflecting unusual images on the windows of her car. I could not duplicate this occurrence, but I believe other MUFON cases contain many instances of this occurring.

    The object seemed to disappear and the witness was unable to find it again. Pictured: Conway Road near the Judge Road intersection. (Credit: Google)

    “According to FlightRadar24.com, there were five planes flying over these buildings for landing at 9:04, 9:07, 9:08, 9:09 and 9:21 p.m. This is consistent with the witness estimate of 9:12 p.m. for her sighting.

    “Witness said she was fairly certain of the time – plus or minus a few minutes.While I was there, I observed the same landing pattern – planes one to two minutes apart.

    “If there had been an aerial obstruction – these planes would have been directed to 17R, which is parallel and about two miles east of runway 18L. While there, I observed planes landing on both runways. Planes landing on the other runway cannot be seen except farther out on their approach because of terrain and distance.”

    Please remember that most UFO sightings can be explained as something natural or man-made. The above quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.

    26 juin 2017 : conférence de Jacques Vallée, Paris, FRANCE

    Ce lundi 26 juin 2017, Jacques Vallée donnait une conférence à l’espace 104, rue de Vaugirard à l’invitation de l’Institut Métapsychique. Près de 200 personnes étaient présentes à cet événement très attendu.

    Après une brève présentation de l’invité par les organisateurs, celui-ci prend la parole et précise d’emblée le sujet de son intervention « What do we know about the material composition of UFO’s ? » ("Que savons-nous sur la composition matérielle des Ovnis ? »). 
    Résumé de cette soirée exceptionnelle, en espérant n'avoir pas dénaturé la pensée de Jacques Vallée.

    En préambule, si vous n'êtes pas familier avec la personne de Jacques Vallée, je vous invite à lire cet article de Thibaut Canuti : "Le Collège invisible et l'apport fondateur de Jacques Vallée" et bien entendu la fiche biographique de Jacques Vallée sur Wikipedia.

    4.jpg

    D'emblée, Jacques Vallée s’excuse que les slides de sa présentation soient en anglais, mais les non-anglophones n’ont pas eu de mal à suivre ses propos malgré tout.
    L’objet de la conférence est en fait une étude en cours sur la composition des ovnis et prolonge un article que Vallée avait publié il y a 19 ans sur ce thème lié à la physique des matériaux.

    Le conférencier commence par rappeler que dans le domaine de l’ufologie, il existe trois types de matériaux à étudier :

    les scories de métal en fusion éjectés par les ovnis qui sont comme des éjectas. Comme cela ressemble souvent à du mâchefer, les témoins n’y accordent pas d’importance et ne les ramassent hélas pas.
    Les implants : ce sont de petits objets à l’usage inconnu que des témoins disent retrouver dans des parties de leurs corps (sur ce sujet, Jacques Vallée qu’il s’y intéresse davantage qu’autrefois)
    des pièces structurelles récupérées sur les sites de crashes, voire des entités biologiques ! L’affaire de Roswell est le cas le plus archétypique de ce genre de récolte, même si les éléments de preuve manquent toujours et qu’un nuage de rumeurs et de faits non établis entoure le récit.

    Comme il s’agit de pouvoir ramener quelque chose de tangible en laboratoire, Jacques Vallée a préféré délaisser les histoires pour se tourner vers des objets concrets. Or, les seuls disponibles, ce sont ces « éjectas » récupérés ici et là lors d’observation d’ovnis. Vallée précise qu’on ne se trouve pas dans la culture du secret, au contraire, il veut médiatiser ses recherches.

    L'ufologue rappelle un point important : longtemps, on s’est limité aux analyses chimiques, désormais il faut se tourner vers l’étude des isotopes.
    Pour mémoire, un isotope est un atome qui possède le même nombre d’électrons et de protons (afin de rester neutre) mais un nombre différent de neutrons. Il mentionne l’exemple de l’hydrogène qui a trois isotopes : classique (pas de neutron), deutérium (1 neutron), tritium (2 neutrons). Un autre exemple bien connu : celui de l'uranium qui a 17 isotopes, tous radioactifs. Ils possèdent tous 92 protons mais ils ont entre 125 et 150 neutrons.
    Seulement trois sont présents naturellement sur Terre (uranium 234, 235 et 238) et surtout l’un d’eux, à plus de 99% : l’uranium 238.
    L’étude des isotopes sur des échantillons issus de projections d’ovnis pourrait donc permettre d'identifier des éléments qui ne sont pas terrestres.

    Jacques Vallée passe en revue rapidement 15 cas connus de rejets de matériaux, depuis Aurora au Texas en 1897 jusqu’à Newark en 1996, un seul cas français : Ratheau. 
    Et parmi ces affaires, seulement 4 donnent accès à des échantillons : Ubatuba (Brésil), Bogota (Colombie), Council Bluffs (USA) et « Sierra » (lieu secret, USA).

    Vallée souligne les difficultés à mener des études poussées sur les isotopes : l’équipement coûte cher et comme il est rare, il est peu disponible. Il faut donc faire prendre son mal en patience. 
    Le conférencier propose d’ailleurs de faire des échanges de bons procédés et de partager des échantillons avec les laboratoires français (Pierre et Marie Curie, Orsay, etc.) d’autant que certains laboratoires font déjà des tests d’isotopes sur des météorites. 
    Grâce à la spectrométrie de masse, il est possible de détecter les isotopes. Un faisceau d'électrons de haute énergie est utilisé pour ioniser les atomes et les molécules. Les ions ainsi formés sont ensuite soumis à l’action d’un champ magnétique qui permet de les dévier et de les séparer en fonction de leur rapport masse sur charge, et donc de déterminer les différents isotopes.

    3.jpg

    Vallée a fait analyser plusieurs échantillons, a priori rien de spécial. Sauf dans le cas d’Ubatuba (Brésil, 7 septembre 1957). Il a déniché deux nouveaux échantillons dans un musée d’ufologie à Victoria en Argentine. Vallée a eu accès à ces deux échantillons, l’un étant au Dr. Olavo Fontes, l’autre ayant été apporté par un marin argentin du nom d’Hercente et témoin de l’apparition de l’OVNI en 1957.

    Si le premier morceau présente des ratios isotopiques de magnésium normaux et terrestres, le second en revanche a des ratios très différents ! Non seulement ce ne sont pas des ratios que l’on observe sur Terre, mais pas non plus dans l’espace que l’on connaît. C’est comme si cet échantillon de magnésium avait été décomposé en isotopes puis « recombiné » en suite selon des proportions inédites, c’est totalement inexplicable en l’état actuel des connaissances. Qui était capable de le faire en 1957 ? D’autres analyses, plus poussées, seraient forcément nécessaires car il faut des analyses dans plusieurs laboratoires pour confirmer cette découverte mais cela nécessite des moyens et du temps.

    S’en suit une séance de questions/réponses avec le public durant laquelle plusieurs hypothèses sont évoquées sur la physique des matériaux, notamment des propriétés électromagnétiques. 
    Il est fait allusion au personnage de Spielberg joué par François Truffaut et inspiré de Jacques Vallée, mais aussi aux momies péruviennes de Thierry Jamin. Jacques Vallée ne se prononce pas mais rappelle l’affaire de l’humanoïde Ata (désert d’Atacama au Chili), une relique d’un soi-disant « alien » qui était en réalité le squelette d’un enfant de sept ans atteint, cas exceptionnel, de deux maladies génétiques rares. A l’époque, la revue Science y avait consacré un article.
    Parmi les autres sujets brièvement abordés, la théorie des univers gémellaires de Jean-Pierre Petit, le phénomène des vagues d’observation d’ovnis qui semble répondre à des règles cycliques, ainsi que la participation de Jacques Vallée aux travaux du SRI à Menlo Park en Californie, notamment sur Arpanet (le réseau ancêtre d’Internet) et sur la vision à distance (« remote viewing »)
    Jacques Vallée précise pour finir qu’on peut trouver des points communs entre le phénomène ovni et la parapsychologie, les témoins d’observations ayant souvent après coup des visions ou des facultés inhabituelles.

    Mon commentaire : 

    - une soirée passionnante, très stimulante pour l'esprit. L'analyse des matériaux retrouvés apparait beaucoup moins spectaculaire que toutes ces news sensationnalistes dont on nous abreuve sur Internet mais il se peut qu'au final, les véritables preuves proviennent de ces analyses fastidieuses et peu "glamour".

    Je me suis posé la question : si ces isotopes de magnésium d'Ubatuba ne sont pas terrestres, mais ne correspondent pas non plus à ce que l'on est en droit de s'attendre à trouver ailleurs dans le cosmos, d'où viennent-ils ?

    Et en repensant à l'intérêt de Jacques Vallée pour les univers à plusieurs dimensions, j'en suis venu à imaginer (hypothèse purement théorique, cela va de soi) que ces échantillons proviendraient peut-être... d'une autre dimension ? Une autre dimension dont l'existence resterait à prouver, bien entendu, mais dont les lois de la physique seraient peut-être différentes de celles de notre univers... ?

    Auquel cas ces échantillons d'apparence très ordinaire seraient porteurs d'une révélation incroyable : les ovnis existent et ils viennent non pas d'un espace lointain mais d'une autre dimension. Je le répète, c'est une hypothèse personnelle et très vraisemblablement le fruit de mon imagination d'auteur ;-)

    NASA fotografeert zeer vreemd object op Mars. Wie of wat heeft dit achtergelaten?

    Marsrover Curiosity van de NASA heeft een foto gemaakt van de rode planeet die een UFO lijkt te tonen. Dat schrijft de Britse Daily Star.

    Op de afbeelding is het rotsachtige landschap van Mars te zien. In het midden van de foto is een onbekend object te zien.

    Het lijkt een glad oppervlak en lichten te hebben. In ieder geval lijkt het niet op iets wat is gemaakt door de natuur.

    Niet gereageerd

    Volgens UFO-jagers is de foto bewijs voor intelligent buitenaards leven. De Amerikaanse ruimtevaartorganisatie NASA heeft nog niet gereageerd op de ontdekking.

    Het ruimteagentschap maakte in 2015 wel bekend dat er stromend water op Mars was gevonden en dat er mogelijk leven is.

    Hackerscollectief Anonymous claimde deze week dat de NASA op het punt staat bewijzen van buitenaards leven naar buiten te brengen.

    Verhullen

    Complottheoretici beschuldigen de NASA er vaak van het bestaan van aliens te verhullen. Zij plaatsen geregeld foto’s van de maan of Mars waarop volgens hen aliens zijn te zien.

    Meestal blijkt het te gaan om een vreemd gevormde rots, maar deze nieuwe afbeelding is niet zo gemakkelijk te verklaren, aldus de Daily Star.

    “Uh, NASA? UFO vastgelegd door de Marsrover? Is dit echt?” schreef Reddit-gebruiker Daxanater bij de foto.

    Photoshoppen

    Mikeymike 34 zei: “Dit is geweldig!” Crazylegs99 voegde toe: “Tijdens het photoshoppen zijn ze vergeten dit eruit te halen.”

    “Lijkt op glinsterend licht van een ruimteschip op een planeet in de ruimte,” schreef EdisonVonneZula.

    Landingsvaartuig

    Eén gebruiker suggereerde dat het mogelijk gaat om de resten van het landingsvaartuig van Curiosity.

    “De rover was op die datum kennelijk in de buurt van die resten en maakte er een foto van,” aldus OnceReturned.

    The hunt for EXTRA DIMENSIONS begins: ESA approves gravitational wave-chasing spacecraft for 2034 - and it could help us find parallel universes

    • Ripples in the fabric of space and time are called gravitational waves
    • ESA has approved a trio of gravitational wave hunting satellites for 2034
    • The satellites will orbit the sun in a triangular formation while firing lasers
    • Gravitational waves will make tiny changes to the distances between the lasers
    • An extra dimension would change the way gravitational waves stretch space 
    • If these changes can be detected, it could help discover an extra dimension

    The existence of parallel universes within an unseen dimension has long been one of the universe's biggest 'what ifs'.

    Now the European Space Agency (EA) has approved a mission that will hunt for gravitational waves - mysterious space-time disturbances that could finally prove the existence of extra dimensions.

    Physicists think that unknown dimensions could cause ripples through reality by modifying these gravitational waves.

    Since gravity is likely to occupy all dimensions that exist, its waves are a promising way to detect unknown dimensions.

    The LISA mission (artist's impression), now scheduled for 2034, will be made up of three identical satellites separated by 2.5 million km (1.5 million miles) in a triangular formation. The craft will follow Earth in its orbit around the sun while firing lasers between one another

    GRAVITATIONAL WAVES 

    The universe is made up of a 'fabric of space-time'.

    This corresponds to Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, published in 1916.

    Objects in the universe bend this fabric, and more massive objects bend it more.

    Gravitational waves are considered ripples in this fabric.

    They can be produced, for instance, when black holes orbit each other or by the merging of galaxies.

    Gravitational waves are also thought to have been produced during the Big Bang.

    Physicists believe the waves can  offer insights into fundamental physics.

    For instance, they could shed light on the idea that, at one point, most or all of the forces of nature were combined into a single force. 

    In search of these waves, ESA has now given its Laser Interferometer Space Antenna mission (LISA) the green light for 2034 after decades of development and delays.

    'I think there's a mixture of super-excitement and "at last",' Professor Mark McCaughrean, ESA's senior adviser for science & exploration, told New Scientist.

    'We're finally over the starting line – it's great.'

    LISA will be made up of three identical satellites, separated by 2.5 million km (1.5 million miles) in a triangular formation, that will follow Earth in its orbit around the sun.

    The three craft will beam powerful lasers between one another as they search for ripples in space-time caused by gravitational waves.

    The LISA satellites will read how these waves warp space by detecting tiny changes in the distances the laser beams travel.

    Gravitational waves are often created by by celestial objects with very strong gravity, such as pairs of merging black holes.

    The primary targets for LISA's observations will be merging supermassive black holes, Professor McCaughrean said, in a bid to better understand the powerful celestial bodies.

    This is not the first time that scientists have delved into the origins of gravitational waves. 

    Earlier this year, researchers suggested that gravitational waves could also be evidence of an unseen, extra dimension.

    THE NEW SPACECRAFT

    ESA has now given its Laser Interferometer Space Antenna mission (LISA) the green light after decades of development and delays.

    LISA will be made up of three identical satellites orbiting the sun in a wide triangular formation.

    The satellites will beam lasers between one another.

    The presence of gravitational waves will cause tiny changes to the distances these lasers travel.

    An extra dimension would change the way gravitational waves stretch space.

    If these changes can be detected, it could help discover an extra dimension. 

    While scientists don't yet have the technology to prove this, by 2034 LISA could provide a route to testing ripples in space-time for evidence of parallel universes.

    Speaking to New Scientist last month, Gustavo Lucena Gomez, who is leading a study into extra dimensions at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics in Potsdam, Germany, said: 'If there are extra dimensions in the universe, then gravitational waves can walk along any dimension, even the extra dimensions.'

    Gravity is weaker than other fundamental forces, and experts have long wondered whether this is because some of it is escaping into an extra dimension.

    The German team set out to calculate how an extra dimension would affect gravitational waves, and found two strange effects – extra waves at high frequencies, and a change in how gravitational waves stretch space.

    As gravitational waves move through an extra dimension, the researchers found that they should generate a 'tower' of extra gravitational waves with higher frequencies.

    But observatories are currently unable to detect frequencies that high, and instead focus on lower frequency gravitational waves.

    Unknown dimensions could cause ripples through reality by modifying gravitational waves - changes in the space-time fabric. Since gravity is likely to occupy all dimensions that exist, its waves are a promising way to detect unknown dimensions (artist's impression)

    This could make spotting the gravitational wave towers a challenge.

    But detecting the change in how gravitational waves stretch space could be easier, according to the researchers.

    Dr Lucena Gomez said: 'If extra dimensions are in our universe, this would stretch or shrink space-time in a different way that standard gravitational waves would never do.'

    Gravitational waves stretch space as they ripple through the universe a bit like a rubber band – the ellipse gets longer in one direction and shorter in the other, before returning to its original shape.

    The targets for LISA's observations will be merging supermassive black holes in a bid to better understand the powerful celestial bodies (artist's impression) but it could eventually be used to test ripples in space time for signs of an extra dimension

    But an extra dimension could add another way for gravitational waves to stretch space, called a breathing mode.

    In the same way that lungs expand as you breathe, gravitational waves cause space to expand and contract, in addition to stretching.

    Dr Lucena Gomez said: 'With more detectors we will be able to see whether this breathing mode is happening.'

    Dr Emilian Dudas, from the Ecole Polytechnique in France told New Scientist: 'Extra dimensions have been discussed for a long time from different points of view.

    'Gravitational waves could be a new twist on looking for extra dimensions.'  

    HOW WOULD GRAVITATIONAL WAVES AFFECT AN EXTRA DIMENSION? 

    Last month, researchers at the Max Planck Institute set out to calculate how extra dimension would affect gravitational waves.

    They found two strange effects – extra waves at high frequencies, and a change in how gravitational waves stretch space.

    As gravitational waves move through an extra dimension, the researchers found that they should generate a 'tower' of extra gravitational waves with higher frequencies.

    But observatories are currently unable to detect frequencies that high, and instead focus on lower frequency gravitational waves.

    This could make spotting the gravitational wave towers a challenge.

    But detecting the change in how gravitiational waves stretch space could be easier, according to the researchers.

    But an extra dimension could add another way for gravitational waves to stretch space, called a breathing mode.

    In the same way that lungs expand as you breathe, gravitational waves cause space to expand and contract, in addition to stretching.

    The researchers hope that this breathing space could soon be detected.

    ESA's LISA satellite system, now scheduled for 2034, may offer a new way to make the necessary readings.
