    The World’s First Functional Laser Weapon is Ready to Protect You

     
    IN BRIEF
    The United States Navy has announced that the LaWS laser defense system is up and running. The weapon is designed to take out drones and ships and has future potential in missile defense.

    The U.S. Navy has announced that the world’s first functional laser weapon is ready for action. The weapon, known as the Laser Weapons System (LaWS), can be found mounted on the USS Ponce, which is currently deployed in the Persian Gulf.

    The weapon was designed to strategically take out flying unmanned vessels. It also has the ability to surgically destroy engines of manned watercraft without endangering the lives of any onboard personnel. The Geneva Convention restricts the use of laser weapons against humans, but the high precision of the laser could allow it to target a ship’s engine without the use of missiles. “That type of precision weapon work is something that you don’t really get with conventional weapons because there tends to be more collateral damage,” Inez Kelly, a U.S. Naval Forces Central Command science adviser, told CNN.

    This technology could be the beginning of replacing missiles for the purpose of destroying enemy targets. On top of sparing lives, the cost comparison of a single shot from LaWS and a missile is astounding: while missiles can cost up to millions of dollars, a single LaWS “round” only costs about one dollar.

    The weapon is currently only approved for drones and water vessels, but the Navy is also testing other applications — under the cover of classified status, of course.

    Solar Warden: The Secret Space Program Built with Alien Technology

    Solar Warden: The Secret Space Program Built with Alien Technology 2

    “We now have the technology to take ET home.” –Ben Rich, CEO of Lockheed Skunk Works, 1993

    The story behind this quote is an interesting one. At a lecture held in 1993 at the UCLA Alumni center, Ben Rich, the former CEO of Lockheed Martin Skunk Works held a speech about the advancements in space engineering during the previous 40 years.

    He concluded with the quote about taking ET home while the final image in his slide presentation showed a “black disk zipping out into outer space.”

    Over the years, the Skunk Works division of Lockheed has designed and built a number of high-tech aircraft such as the U-2, the SR-71 Blackbird, the F-22 Raptor and the F-117 Nighthawk.

    Taking this into account, some have drawn the conclusion that Rich alluded to advanced technology being secretly developed and it might be responsible for some of the flying disks we see today.

    Seems too far-fetched? We’re on the same page but wait, it gets better.

    In 2001, British systems administrator Gary McKinnon hacked his way into 97 U.S. military and NASA computers. He intended to find top-secret files regarding free energy but stumbled upon something bigger.

    McKinnon claimed to have uncovered a spreadsheet containing names and information about “non-terrestrial officers” and transfers between fleets.

    He cross referenced these names with a database of all U.S. Navy and military personnel but was unable to find any of the officers. McKinnon therefore concluded they were not of this world and labeled them as “Space Marines”.

    In an interview with the BBC, he said he had been motivated by The Disclosure Project because:

    They are some very credible, relied-upon people, all saying yes, there is UFO technology, there’s anti-gravity, there’s free energy, and it’s extraterrestrial in origin and they’ve captured spacecraft and reverse engineered them.”

    McKinnon was discovered just as he was examining the image of a UFO stored in a NASA computer in Johnson Space Center’s Building 8. Caught in 2002, he was facing up to 70 years in prison and several million dollars in fines.

    However, the U.K. never extradited him to the U.S. and McKinnon managed to avoid prison. Some say that he was able to do so because he had amassed sensitive information that he used as leverage.

    He maintains his claim that extraterrestrial spacecraft have been captured and reverse-engineered and now the alien technology is being used by entities in our own figurative backyard.

    Program Solar Warden

    This brings us to Solar Warden. According to conspiracy theorists, Solar Warden is an ultra-secret project that maintains a fleet (or several fleets) of spaceships that are operating within our solar system. Some say they’re defending us against alien threats. Others say they’re involved in the covert colonization of space.

    solar_warden_secret_space_program_moon-bases-compressor

    Such a fleet would require technology way ahead of what we’ve currently got. In order to send manned missions into the far reaches of our solar system we’d need exotic materials and propulsion systems. But there are some who claim we already do.

    I suspect that in the last 60 years or so, that there has been some back-engineering and the creation of this type of equipment, that is not nearly as sophisticated yet as what the apparent visitors have.

    – Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the sixth astronaut to walk on the Moon

    Even so, who would have the coin required to fund such a venture?

    The United States’ black budget for 2014 amounted to some $52.6 billion and they plan on spending around $58.7 B this year. But even this astronomical sum isn’t enough to fund or maintain a secret space fleet. And that’s when conspiracy voices start mentioning the deep black budgets.

    As it turns out, there might be UFOs that were built on Earth, based on technology that originated elsewhere in the universe, and we might actually have a secret space fleet [capable of interplanetary travel].

    Awesome GTA 5 Mod Takes Players To Space To Battle Aliens

    Check out Grand Theft Space.

    There's been no shortage of crazy and incredible mods made for Grand Theft Auto V, but most of them stay within the bounds of San Andreas. At this point, though--years after the game's original release--a group of modders apparently decided that the city was feeling a little stale and wanted to expand. And so they created a mod that takes GTA V to the final frontier.

    Grand Theft Space, as it's called, is an ambitious mod that aims to let you explore space and battle with aliens. It's still in development, but the trailer that the team released gives a glimpse of a mod that's already awesome. Check it out below.

    You can see from the video that you'll be able to blast off into space in a shuttle, explore the solar system, careen around the moon in a buggy, and meet new NPCs. You can see a list of features that the mod team is working on here.

    "The earth has been alone in this galaxy since the very moment it was formed, but far far away in another galaxy, there was intelligent life peering at the people of earth for a millennium," modder Sollaholla wrote. "This life was not the friendly life we would like to believe. The NASA research team have found remnants of alien spaceship parts scattered around the state of San Andreas. We never thought that these intelligent life-forms would ever reach our planet; but they're coming and they're not on our side. It's your mission to take out these alien scum before they reach earth."

    There's no set official release date for the mod yet; the modders say that it'll launch "when we think it's ready," Sollaholla said.

    In other GTA V news, publisher Take Two has made controversial decisions regarding multiplayer mods, choosing to shut down the popular Open IV modding tool. Developer Rockstar intervened on its behalf, successfully allowing development on the tool to continue as long as it focuses on single-player mods. In addition, the game continues to sell extremely well even four years after release. In addition, it recently received a content update from developer Rockstar, which you can read about here.

    Grand Theft Pluto? GTA 5 space mod brings interstellar travel to Rockstar's classic

    Rockstar's open-world opus goes into orbit.

    Oliver CraggBy 

    Grand Theft Auto 5 space mod
    Space, the final felonious frontier.Rockstar Games

    Grand Theft Auto 5's huge open-world is about to get even bigger with a new mod that hopes to take the series into space.

    While mysterious rumblings of alien invasions and UFOs are nothing new to Rockstar's opus, actually heading into space for yourself has always been one giant leap away for players. This could be all about to change thanks to modder "sollaholla" and the work-in-progress "Grand Theft Space" mod.

    Officially announced around six months ago, the mod has gained attention thanks to a spectacular teaser trailer (embedded below) which shows players blasting off into space in a rocket, fighting against aliens with laser weapons on the surface of a planet, and even approaching a swirling wormhole which bears a striking resemblance to scenes from 2015 sci-fi epic, Interstellar.

    "The earth has been alone in this galaxy since the very moment it was formed, but far far away in another galaxy, there was intelligent life peering at the people of earth for a millennium," reads a synopsis for the mod.

    "This life was not the friendly life we would like to believe. The NASA research team have found remnants of alien spaceship parts scattered around the state of San Andreas. We never thought that these intelligent life-forms would ever reach our planet; but they're coming and they're not on our side. It's your mission to take out these alien scum before they reach earth."

    The modder, who previously co-created a popular mod bringing web-slinging superhero Spider-Man into GTA 5, has promised that, once released, Grand Theft Space will include four missions filled with planet exploration and combat, as well as the ability to explore planets outside of our solar system.

    Writing during the announcement of the project, sollaholla said "I've heard little rumblings in the past of people wanting to make space mods. I've seen map-editor satellites, and space ship looking vehicles, the whole 9 yards. But nobody seems to have ever made it so you can actually go in space,"

    "So I said, "Screw it, I'm gonna make a space mod.""

    No release date has been set for the user-made cosmic expansion, but you can follow its progress here.

    Big Comets That Can Hit Earth More Numerous Than NASA Thought

    When it comes to comets making direct hits on our home planet, no news is good news. Today isn’t one of those days. A new NASA study of the Oort cloud where most of our solar system’s comets are born found that these frozen space rocks are much bigger than expected and up to seven times more likely to hit Earth than previously thought. Is it time to tell Elon Musk to hurry up with that Mars ship?

    The study, published in the current edition of The Astronomical Journal, used NEOWISE (Near-Earth Orbit) data from the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer mission to track so-called ‘long-period comets’ which have orbits or 200 years or longer. That’s just the minimum cut-off – some of these comets can take thousands of years to complete one orbit around the Sun. The comets with shorter orbits (decades rather than centuries) are generally ‘Jupiter family’ objects that are heavily influenced by the largest planet (that we know of) in the solar system.

    If they don’t fly by for hundreds of years, why should we — with so many more immediate problems — care?

    The number of comets speaks to the amount of material left over from the solar system’s formation. We now know that there are more relatively large chunks of ancient material coming from the Oort Cloud than we thought.”

    University of Maryland astronomy professor and project leader James Bauer warns that the data shows there are seven times more long-period comets measuring at least 1 kilometer across than NASA once thought. It gets worse. Not only are there more of them, they’re bigger than the Jupiter family comets because they spend more time staying solid in frigid space than melting away near the Sun.

    Astronomer and team member Amy Mainzer delivers more bad news.

    Comets travel much faster than asteroids, and some of them are very big. Studies like this will help us define what kind of hazard long-period comets may pose.

    Well, at least there’s a group of astronomers watching these long-period comets who will be able to give us some advance warning to start kissing up to Elon Musk for a seat on his Martian bus, right?

    Wrong. On July 23rd, 2017, the ATLAS-MLO telescope in Hawaii detected that asteroid 2017 OO1 was on a collision course with Earth. In this case, “was” means the telescope picked up the asteroid three days AFTER it had already made its close pass of 76,448 miles away – just a third of the distance to the moon.

    What was that Amy Mainzer said again?

    “Comets travel much faster than asteroids, and some of them are very big.”

    Hello, Elon?

    Mysterie rond mummies van Nazca kan geschiedenis veranderen. Worden er geheime experimenten gedaan?

    Mysterie rond mummies van Nazca kan geschiedenis veranderen. Worden er geheime experimenten gedaan?

    Het mysterie rond de ‘gemummificeerde aliens van Nazca’ kan de wereld veranderen, zo heeft een onderzoeker geclaimd.

    Onlangs publiceerde de website Gaia.com een aantal video’s over vreemde mummies die in Nazca in Peru waren gevonden.

    De Mexicaanse onderzoeksjournalist Jaime Maussan sprak in één van die video’s van een ‘wereldveranderende gebeurtenis’.

    Drie vingers

    Het verhaal begint in 2015, toen een lichaam met een smal hoofd en een hand met daaraan drie vingers werd gevonden.

    Dat jaar werden in de Nazca-woestijn een aantal ondergrondse tunnels en ruimtes ontdekt, waarin twee sarcofagen stonden met daarin verschillende gemummificeerde lichamen.

    Volgens sommige berichten is de ontdekking gedaan door wandelaars of grafrovers. Paul Ronceros kreeg de resten naar eigen zeggen in juli 2016 in handen.

    Soortgelijke ontdekking

    In januari dat jaar zouden medewerkers van het Instituto Inkari in de stad Cuzco een soortgelijke ontdekking hebben gedaan in Peru.

    Ook zij vonden een hand met drie vingers en een schedel terwijl ze grotten en tunnels verkenden in Cuzco.

    De Franse onderzoeker en verkenner Thierry Jamin van het Instituto Inkari deelde zijn bevindingen op 27 november 2016 op zijn Facebookpagina.

    Zes botten

    Enkele dagen daarvoor had Brian Foerster van Hidden Inca Tours een video over de vondst op YouTube geplaatst, waarin hij zegt dat hij van plan is de resten te onderzoeken.

    Hij zei dat ‘experts’ na een aantal tests hadden geconcludeerd dat elke vinger zes botten bevat, meldde de Britse Daily Mail destijds.

    In 2016 was Foerster opnieuw in het nieuws toen hij in een kantoorruimte in Mexico naar eigen zeggen op de resten van een vreemd gevleugeld wezen was gestuit.

    Experimenten

    “Ik ben opgeleid tot bioloog en kan me haast niet voorstellen dat dit nep is,” zei Foerster volgens de Daily Express.

    Maussan reageerde: “Het is een hybride. Dat is erg belangrijk omdat ik denk dat er geheime experimenten worden gedaan. We kunnen dat fysieke lichaam analyseren en bewijzen dat er een intelligentie achter deze experimenten zit.”

    Gaia.com liet weten binnenkort meer video’s over de vreemde mummies te publiceren.

    Russia “UFO’s are real and we know how to Summon them!”

    Russia “UFO’s are real and we know how to Summon them!” 1

    Russians have claimed that they can predict when UFOs will appear and that they can even willingly summon them. They claim that UFO activity is increased when large scale weapons testing is taking place and have been measuring UFO activity by doing so.

     

    Accrding to Vasily Yeremenko, a Major General of FIB in reserve, academician of the Academy of Security, Defense and Law Enforcement:

    We can say that we learned to summon UFOs in Vladimirovka. To do this, we dramatically increased the number of military flights and movement of the equipment. If the intensity on our side increased, UFOs appeared with the probability of 100 percent.

    The Russians have come to three main conclusions:

    • Modern science is not yet able to identify such phenomena.
    • The UFOs could be US or Japan surveillance drones.
    • The UFOs could be extraterrestrial activity.
    Russia “UFO’s are real and we know how to Summon them!”

    According to Svobodnaya Pressa, a news website, the Russian Navy have now declassified records of encounters with unidentified objects that technologically surpass anything ever built by humanity.

    A special Navy group headed by Deputy Navy Commander Admiral Nikolay Smirnov collected information on reports of unidentified objects, delivered by submarines and military ships.

    According to Vladimir Azhazha, a UFO researcher and former Navy officer:

    “Fifty percent of UFO encounters are connected with oceans. Fifteen more – with lakes. So UFOs tend to stick to the water.”

    According to one report, a nuclear submarine on a combat mission detected six unknown objects pursuing them. After failing to lose the objects, the captain ordered the submarine to surface – the objects followed, departed from the water and flew away at high speed.

    In 1982 a group of military divers training at Baikal saw a group of humanoid beings dressed in silvery suits. Despite the divers trying to catch them, three of them died whilst the other four were injured.

    According to Captain 1st rank Igor Barklayof Navy Intelligence:

    “Ocean UFO’s often show up wherever our or NATO’s fleets concentrate. Near Bahamas, Bermudas, Puerto Rico. They are most often seen in the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean, in the southern part of the Bermuda Triangle, and also in the Caribbean Sea.”

    Mysterious Blue Pools Dot the Surface of Mars

    Mysterious Blue Pools Dot the Surface of Mars 1

    If the organizers of Mars One – the project to establish a permanent human settlement on Mars – needs something to help bring up their recruitment numbers, this could be it. New photos from the Red Planet show that the Martian surface is dotted with mysterious blue pools and lagoons. If they’re filled with water or some other non-lethal but refreshing liquid, Mars could be the perfect place for extra-terrestrial swimmers, sunbathers and backyard party lovers.

    The images were taken in November 2014 by the Mars Express’s High Resolution Stereo Camera and show the Arabia Terra region which is covered with craters of varying sizes, shapes and depths. A number of the craters show what appear to be blue pools that are in sharp contrast to the reddish surface around them. Is this the evidence we’ve been looking for of water on the surface of Mars?

    one-pool-570x321-compressor
    Another view of a mysterious blue pool on Mars

    The official word from the European Space Agency (ESA) is that the pools are the result of an “optical illusion” caused by a combination of Martian winds, erosion, dark volcanic sediments, image processing and probably a few more things. Here’s the explanation from ESA:

    Is this a hint of blue liquid water? No, it is an optical illusion caused by the image processing. The blue-hued patches lying within the ragged craters are actually dark sediments that have built up over time. Again, this is due to the winds, which carry dark, volcanic, basalt-rich deposits across the planet.

    While it’s true that Martian winds can reach 60 mph (100 km/h), hard enough to blow piles of dirt up against the walls of craters, why haven’t we seen these pools before in previous images? And why are they blue and not just a darkish shade of volcanic ash?

    Is the ESA telling the truth about these mysterious blue pools? Or did these photos slip out before they could be removed or photoshopped by space scientists who don’t want us to know about these resorts on Mars? Is Mars One already telling Californians they can escape the drought on Earth by moving to the Red Planet?

    Optical illusion? Martian backyard pools? Secret water reservoirs? Mars One recruiting ploy? Something else?

    Another Interesting Leak: A Second NASA Scientist Tells Us That ‘Somebody Else’ Is On The Moon

    There are still many obstacles in the way of full transparency, one of which is the use of ‘national security’ to keep information classified and hidden from public viewing. This has become more evident with the revelations of WikiLeaks and Edward Snowden, but the problem goes deeper still. Did you know that the U.S government classifies roughly five hundred million pages of documents every single year? This is a completely separate topic in itself and if you’re interested in learning more about this, you can check out our article about the ‘Black Budget.’

    NASA Scientists & What They Say About The Moon

    Multiple NASA personnel have made some pretty shocking claims about the Moon. George Leonard, a NASA scientist and photo analyst who obtained various official NASA photographs of the Moon, many of which he published in his book titled Somebody Else Is On The Moon, is just one of these personnel.

    Although the photos are small in size and their resolution is not up to today’s standards, they   show details of original prints which were huge. While Leonard published the identifying code numbers of the photos in his works to back up their source, we still can’t say for sure that they were real, and their poor resolution only makes matters worse. Far more compelling than these photos are his statements about what was found on the Moon, along with his verified NASA credentials. Leonard was not the only one with a credible background trying to tell the world the truth regarding the Moon and the photos that were taken from the Apollo missions.

    Ladies and gentlemen, my government, NASA, which many of us in the United States say stands for Never A Straight Answer, proceeded to erase 40 rolls of film of the Apollo Program — the flight to the Moon, the flight around the Moon, the landings on the Moon, the walking guys here and there. They erased, for Christ’s sake, 40 rolls of film of those events. Now we’re talking about several thousand individual frames that were taken that the so-called authorities determined that you did not have a right to see. Oh, they were ‘disruptive,’ ‘socially unacceptable,’ ‘politically unacceptable.’ I’ve become furious. I’m a retired Command Sergeant Major. I was never famous for having a lot of patience.” (source)

    The quote above is from Bob Dean, who was speaking at a conference in Europe. Bob is a retired US Army Command Sargent Major, and he also served at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) of NATO as an intelligence analyst.

    When it comes to the UFO phenomenon, we now have public disclosure of thousands of documents along with hundreds of credible witness testimonies.

    It’s also important to note here that the Russian government recently called for an international investigation into the U.S. moon landings regarding the disappearance of film footage from the original moon landing in 1969. They are also referring to the (approximately) 400 kilograms of lunar rock that was obtained during multiple missions between 1969 and 1972. (source)

    Leonard argued that NASA knew about extraterrestrial activity on the Moon and attempted to hide that information. He’s not the only one to make such an assertion.

    Read the books, read the lore, start to understand what has really been going on, because there is no doubt that we are being visited. . . . The universe that we live in is much more wondrous, exciting, complex and far reaching than we were ever able to know up to this point in time. . . . [Mankind has long wondered if we’re] alone in the universe. [But] only in our period do we really have evidence. No, we’re not alone.”  

     Dr. Edgar Mitchell, ScD., NASA astronaut (6th man to walk on the moon)

    Here is a clip of NASA astronaut Dr. Brian O’Leary saying the same thing.

    Leonard is not the only NASA scientist to say some strange things about the Moon. Recently, a plasma scientist by the name of Dr. John Brandenburg said the same thing. He was the Deputy Manager of the Clementine Mission to the Moon, which was part of a joint space project between the Ballistic Missile Defence Organization (BMDO) and NASA. The mission discovered water at the Moon’s poles in 1994. (Source: page 16 of 18)(source)(source)

    According to Brandenburg in an interview from this documentary:

    It was (the Clementine Mission) a photo reconnaissance mission basically to check out if someone was building bases on the moon that we didn’t know about. Were they expanding them?

    He then went on to state that:

    Of all the pictures I’ve seen from the moon that show possible structures, the most impressive is a picture of a miles wide recto-linear structure. This looked unmistakably artificial, and it shouldn’t be there. As somebody in the space defence community, I look on any such structure on the moon with great concern because it isn’t ours, there’s no way we could have built such a thing. It means someone else is up there. 

    If you were to tell the average person that you think another civilization, advanced enough to have mastered space travel, had been to the Moon before we got there and is possibly still going there, you would, without a doubt, receive some very peculiar looks in return. On the other hand, if that other person were to decide to hear you out, you would probably get their attention pretty quickly. For some, this type of information can be overwhelming, even terrifying, and that’s okay. Many people are not ready to open their minds up to these possibilities, but the truth of the matter is, it’s something we are going to have to confront eventually. We are clearly heading towards the inevitable reality of extraterrestrial contact — that is, if we smarten up and start taking care of our planet to the best of our ability. Perhaps we can make it long enough to realize this future, or maybe it’s coming sooner than we think.

    That being said, there is a good deal of evidence to suggest that extraterrestrial contact is already happening.

    A study of the brains of more than 200 deceased football players — including 111 who played in the National Football League (NFL) — reveals that nearly 90 percent of the players had a brain disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

    In the study, published today (July 25) in the journal JAMA, researchers found evidence of CTE in 177 out of 202 brains, or 87 percent of the individuals. Among the brains of NFL players, 110 out of 111, or 99 percent, had CTE. (The other men who had donated their brains for the study played football either semiprofessionally, or in college or high school.) [Read more about CTE.]

    The mystery of tiny teardrop-shaped glass confections that can survive a hammer blow, yet shatter to smithereens with the slightest touch to the stem, has finally been solved.

    Over the centuries, scientists puzzled over the riddle of Prince Rupert's drops. In 1994, Chandrasekar and a colleague used a high-speed camera to capture 1 million frames per second of the drops as they shattered. The footage revealed that tiny cracks that form in the tail rapidly spread into the head. [Read more about the solved mystery.]

    The notorious "Sourtoe Cocktail" — a shot of alcohol containing a dehydrated human toe — is a bizarre tradition at the Downtown Hotel's Sourdough Saloon, in Dawson City, Yukon Territory. The cocktail craze kicked off in 1973, after riverboat Capt. Dick Stevenson found a preserved toe in an abandoned Yukon cabin; the toe was thought to belong to a 1920s-era bootlegger named Louie Linken, the Sourtoe Cocktail Club website says.

    To date, 71,468 people have downed the drink and tasted the toe, toe captain Terry Lee recently told NPR. [Read more about the drink.]

    A group of scientists in Oregon has successfully modified the genes of embryos using CRISPR, a cut-and-paste gene-editing tool.

    In general, editing the germ line — meaning sperm, eggs or embryos — has been controversial, because it means permanently changing the DNA that is passed on from one generation to the next. Some scientists have called for a ban on germ-line editing, saying the approach is incredibly risky and ethically dubious. [Read more about the procedure.]

    The people of modern-day Lebanon can trace their genetic ancestry back to the Canaanites, new research finds.

    Haber, Tyler-Smith and their colleagues extracted ancient DNA from the bones of five Canaanites who died in the ancient city of Sidon (an area now in Lebanon). The skeletons dated from between 3,750 and 3,650 years ago. The researchers then compared the genetic sequences of these ancient Canaanites with those of 99 modern Lebanese people, as well as with ancient DNA sequences of more than 300 other people from an ancient DNA database.

    Sperm counts among men in Western countries have dropped considerably in the last several decades, according to a new study.

    The researchers said that they cannot determine from their data what might have caused the decline, but it could be related to environmental or lifestyle factors. The findings are concerning, not only because men's sperm counts are linked with their chances of conceiving a child, but also because poor sperm counts have been linked with a number of other poor health outcomes, including an increased risk of early death.

    For some skywatchers, the upcoming total solar eclipse on Aug. 21 is more than just a chance to catch a rare sight of the phenomenon in the United States. It's also an opportunity to duplicate one of the most famous experiments of the 20th century, which astrophysicist Arthur Eddington performed in an attempt to prove that light could be bent by gravity, a central tenet of Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity.

    But later analyses of Eddington's data seemed to suggest that the astrophysicist's confirmation might not have been the slam dunk he thought it was. Bruns said the debate over Eddington's data is why he wants to do the experiment again. [Read more about testing Einstein's theory.]

    NASA SHUT DOWN THEIR LIVE STREAM AS STRANGE UFO ENTERS EARTH’S ATMOSPHERE

    UFO hunters have raised the alarm about an alleged intrusion of Earth’s atmosphere by a massive UFO. The mysterious space object, according to UFO chasers, was spotted on the live ISS stream entering the Earth’s atmosphere on July 9, 2016.

    The alleged intrusion was first reported by prolific UFO hunter Streetcap1 in a video uploaded online on July 9, 2016, the same day he spotted the mysterious object entering the Earth’s atmosphere.

    According to Streetcap1 in the description of his video titled “UFO Enters Earth’s Atmosphere, July 9, 2016,” while it was possible that the object was a meteor, we may suspect it was an alien craft because NASA cut live transmission as it entered Earth’s atmosphere.

    The UFO hunter wrote that the object may have been a meteor, but the suggestion appeared to be contradicted by his observation that it paused during entry into Earth’s atmosphere.

    “Remember a UFO is an unidentified flying object,” Streetcap1 wrote. “This could well be a meteor or the like. What made it interesting was that the camera cut off when the UFO seemed to stop.”

    Streetcap1’s observations sparked a debate among enthusiasts.

    UFO Sightings Hotspot argued that although the object appears, at first glance, to be a natural space object, such as a meteor, a closer look could lead the observer to conclude it was an artificial space object, such as space junk or debris, making re-entry into the atmosphere from orbit.

    NASA seems to have a nasty habit of cutting off their live camera feeds every time a UFO enters the frame.”

    But according to the blogger, the fact that NASA cut the live video raises suspicion.

    “At first glance it could be a natural object like a meteor or an artificial object like space junk or a satellite but what made it interesting was that NASA cut the live camera feed just at the moment the UFO seemed to stop just above earth’s atmosphere,” the blogger wrote.

    “If it [was a] recognizable and identified object then there is no reason to shut down the live streaming,” the UFO blogger continued, “but NASA seems to have a nasty habit of cutting off their live camera feeds every time a UFO enters the frame.”

    UFO blogger Scott C. Waring also joined the debate. In a post to this UFO Sightings Daily blog, he ruled out the suggestion that the mysterious object was the Moon or a meteor.

    Although he admitted the object could be a giant UFO, he argued, rather uncharacteristically, that it was more likely the Chinese space station Tiangong-1.

    “I have watched the International Space Station a lot over the last 6 years and I can tell you that this is not the moon, nor a meteor,” he wrote. “It may be the Chinese space station cargo ship, called Tiangong-1, or the other one Tangong-2.”

    Tiangong-1 is China’s first space station launched unmanned into orbit in September 2011. It serves primarily as an experimental module for testing and demonstrating space maneuvers and operations, such as docking.

    The Chinese plan to replace it with Tiangong-2 in September 2016, according toSpaceflights News.

    Tiangong-2 will allow China to place two astronauts in orbit for up to 30 days,Shanghai Daily reports.

    This is not the first time that UFO hunters have accused NASA of cutting transmission after a mysterious UFO appeared on the live ISS stream.

    A NASA spokesperson made a statement earlier in April denying allegations that NASA technicians deliberately shut down transmission when UFOs appear on the live video. According to the spokesperson, NASA never intentionally shuts down live transmission to hide UFOs. Loss of video is usually due to loss of signals from the ISS.

    “The station [ISS] regularly passes out of range of the Tracking and Relay Data Satellites used to send and receive video, voice and telemetry from the station,” NASA spokesperson Tabatha Thompson said. “For video, whenever we lose signal video comes down on our higher bandwidth, called KU. The cameras will show a blue screen indicating no signal or a preset video slate, depending on where you are watching the feed.”

    The statement was issued in response to media questions after Waring claimed in a blog post (see video above) that the agency cut live transmission following the appearance of a “diamond” or “horseshoe-shaped” UFO on the live feed.

    Jupiter is so big it does not actually orbit the sun

    One of my daughter’s favorite books is “Space Walk” by Salina Yoon. Each page shows a planet accompanied by a rhyming factoid about it.

    But each time I read it to her — sometimes three or more times a day — I furrow my nerdy brow at this line: “Of all the planets that circle the sun, giant Jupiter is the biggest one.”

    The gas giant is indeed the largest planet in the solar system, weighing more than twice the mass of all the other planets,moons, asteroids, comets, and more combined.

    However, Jupiter does not technically orbit the sun — because it’s so dauntingly massive.

    When a small object orbits a big object in space, the less massive one doesn’t travel in a perfect circle around the larger one. Rather, both objects orbit a combined center of gravity.

    For a puny, fragile planet like Earth, which is 0.000003 the mass of the sun, the center of gravity resides so close to the center of the sun that we don’t even notice the slightly off-kilter orbit. It seems as though we circle the star.

    The same is true of most other objects in the solar system — except Jupiter.

    The gas giant is so big that it pulls the center of mass between it and the sun, also known as the barycenter, some 1.07 solar radii from the star’s center — which is about 30,000 miles above the sun’s surface.

    jupiter sun barycenter center of mass distance nasa business insider labeled

    A to-scale illustration of where the sun-Jupiter barycenter is. NASA/SDO; Business Insider

    Jupiter is about 0.001 as massive than the sun, but it’s sizeable enough that both the sun and Jupiter orbit that point in space.

    This not-to-scale GIF from NASA illustrates the effect:

    Essentially, that’s how Jupiter and the sun move through space together — though the distances and sizes are far different.

    So the next time you read a kid’s book that says that Jupiter circles the sun, you’d be forgiven for trying to rip out that page. Just like my daughter enjoys doing.

    ‘Star Trek ship’ spotted in the sky by UFO sceptic – who admits he’s baffled by the sighting

    A ‘Star Trek’ style spaceship has allegedly been spotted hovering in the sky in Canada.

    Images of the strange object were captured by a self-proclaimed UFO sceptic who admitted he was the ‘last person’ to believe in aliens or extraterrestrials.

    The video has been uploaded to YouTube by Tyler Glockner, UFO hunter and founder of Secureteam10.

    In the clip, Tyler says: “Something [has been] caught flying in the skies over Canada.

    “It looks like a saucer, it kind of looks like the Star Trek ship from the TV series.”

    The bizarre UFO looks like a ‘Star Trek ship’

    The strange object was spotted over Random Island in Canada, by a man named Chad Haines.

    After handing in the footage to a Canadian news site, Mr Haines admitted to reporters that he was the last person to believe in aliens , extraterrestrials or UFOs.

    But after witnessing the unidentified craft hovering in the sky near his house, he says he now can’t explain what else it could have been.

    Even a UFO sceptic can’t come up with a rational explanation

    Haines was deleting images off his camera in preparation when he stumbled upon photographs he’d taken earlier in the year.

    He said the object was hovering over water ‘near to the moon’ and was visible for two to three hours.

    After remaining still for most of that time, the object then moved up and down before rapidly shooting off out of sight.

    Haines says the object definitely wasn’t a plane, and said the UFO was far too large to be a drone.According to Tyler, a sighting in the same place was spotted more than 37 years ago in 1978.This time, it was a strange cigar-shaped craft hovering over Random Island. The police officer who spotted the object was subjected to so much ridicule that he barely mentioned the sighting ever again.

    Alien breakthrough as NASA discovers molecules on moon PERFECT for life

    ALIEN life in our solar system is one step closer to being discovered as NASA scientists found molecules that could build life.

    ALIENS: Life could exist on Saturn's moon of Titan believes NASA

    The space agency is probing the moon of Titan orbiting Saturn in its hunt for life in our solar system.

    Researchers have now made stunning new revelations about the frozen world, which is 50% larger than our moon.

    Dubbed Earth’s “toxic twin”, scientists said they have found the chemical acrylonitrile – used to manufacture plastics on Earth.

    They believe under the harsh conditions of Saturn’s largest moon, the chemical could form stable, flexible structures similar to cell membranes.

    “We found convincing evidence that acrylonitrile is present in Titan’s atmosphere, and we think a significant supply of this raw material reaches the surface,” said

    Maureen Palmer, a researcher with the Goddard Center for Astrobiology at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, and lead author of a paper in Science Advances.

    TITAN: Saturn's moons surface is covered in chemical lakes

    “We have made the first unambiguous identification of carbon chain anions in a planet-like atmosphere

    Ravi Desai

    The detections were made using Cassini’s plasma spectrometer as it flew through Titan’s upper atmosphere, 950–1300 km above the surface.

    “We have made the first unambiguous identification of carbon chain anions in a planet-like atmosphere, which we believe are a vital stepping-stone in the production line of growing bigger, and more complex organic molecules, such as the moon’s large haze particles,” said Ravi Desai of University College London and lead author of the study.

    “This is a known process in the interstellar medium, but now we’ve seen it in a completely different environment, meaning it could represent a universal process for producing complex organic molecules.

    “The question is, could it also be happening within other nitrogen-methane atmospheres like at Pluto or Triton, or at exoplanets with similar properties?”

    Space experts have long believed Titan is a prime candidate for life and has an atmosphere “consistent” with one supported by methane breathing aliens.

    So far, Titan is one of the only objects in space other than Earth to have evidence of surface liquid, which is thought to be vital for sustaining alien life.

    The cells of Earth’s plants and animals would not hold up well on Titan, where surface temperatures average minus 290 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 179 degrees Celsius), and lakes brim with liquid methane.

    The discovery comes as NASA offered an up-close look at the Trappist-1 exoplanets – believed to be key in the hunt for life.

    They are also considering launching the Titan Mare Explorer, which would probe the world in a bid to find aliens.

    It would take seven years to reach the moon of Saturn and spend six months on the surface looking for proof of life.

    Mysterious Vanishings and Strange Deaths at Death Valley

    Sprawled out over a large swath of Eastern California, in the United States is a vast expanse of arid desert wasteland covering around 3,000 sq mi (7,800 km2), known rather fittingly as Death Valley, located mostly within Inyo County, California. This is an unforgiving, desolate land, which is a stranger to rain and known as one of the hottest places in the world, with some the highest temperature ever recorded in the world, at 134 °F (56.7 °C), recorded on July 10, 1913. It is as deadly, inhospitable a place as you are likely to find, that may as well be the surface of some scorching, barren alien planet, yet it has drawn more than its fair share of visitors who flock here to see the bleak, sun blazed vistas or merely out of pure curiosity. Yet for as many people that come here to visit, there are also those who never return, and this is a deadly, ominous place that has earned a rather sinister reputation for mysterious vanishings and deaths.

    One of the earlier unexplained disappearances of Death Valley happened in 1958, when 26-year-old Army pilot First Lieut. Paul Byron Whipkey vanished under strange circumstances from Fort Ord, California. On July 10, 1958, Lieutenant Whipkey casually told his fellow officers that he was heading out to get a quick drink in the nearby town, and he would bizarrely be next seen a few hours later and hundreds of miles away in Mojave, California, where he allegedly checked into a motel for no known reason. The next day, he purportedly bought 14 gallons of gasoline and then proceeded to vanish off the face of the earth. The only clue would come 5 weeks later, when Whipkey’s abandoned vehicle was found by California fish and game officers in a remote, forbidding region of Death Valley, 15 miles away from the main road and 400 miles from where he had begun his odd journey in Fort Ord. Whipkey’s dog tags, suitcase, and other personal belongings were found within, but there was no sign of where he had gone.

    Death Valley

    The Army was quick to dismiss this all as a case of simple desertion, and would later claim that he had died after wandering away into the desert from his car, but there is no evidence at all of what really happened, and Whipkey’s brother, Carl Whipkey, would be deeply skeptical of this assertion, saying that right off the bat the government was being suspicious about it all. He would claim that from the day after his brother’s disappearance the Army had said they were packing up his belongings, of which Carl would say, “Superhyper Superquick. When you catch them packing up your brother’s clothes one day after he disappeared, you get super-hyper superquick.” Whipkey’s family has never accepted the Army’s official explanation, and feel that there is something more going on here, perhaps even a cover-up, which is especially believable considering that when Carl Whipkey requested information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation under the Freedom of Information Act, he was told that all of the files had been destroyed in 1977 for reasons unknown. Carl has said of the strange case:

    The Government knows what happened to my brother. There are so many questions still unanswered. I would be satisfied even if the Army would say they can’t tell us for security reasons. But until then, we can’t rule anything out.

    In the meantime all sorts of theories have popped up, with ideas such as that he was really a secret agent who saw something he was not supposed to or was silenced, that he was a test subject for some military experiment, a victim of nerve gas or atomic tests who was covertly swept under the carpet, or even abducted by aliens. Interestingly, it has been found that shortly before his strange disappearance, Whipkey had developed had developed inexplicable black moles and warts all over his body and had frequently complained of not feeling well, as well as displaying personality changes, appearing “nervous and uptight.” He also apparently had had many of his teeth pulled out and replaced with dentures. What does any of this mean, if anything? What happened to Paul Byron Whipkey? Whatever the answer to that may be is lost to us, as no sign of him has ever been found and all records on the case seemingly lost.

    Probably the most well-publicized vanishings connected to Death Valley occurred in July of 1996, when four tourists from Dresden, Germany journeyed here to take in the sights. Cornelia Meyer, 27, her 4-year-old son Max, boyfriend Egbert Rimkus, 34, and his 10-year-old son, Georg Weber, were touring Las Vegas and the surrounding region in a rented Plymouth van. It was probably not the best time to be visiting, as at the time Death Valley was in the midst of a scorching, record-breaking heat wave which saw the already relentlessly, oppressively hot temperatures here soar up to 120 degrees and up. Regardless, they set out from their hotel in Las Vegas on July 22, and headed to Death Valley, where they stopped at a visitor’s center to purchase a book on the valley and a map before heading out to explore the heat blasted landscape. This would be the last time anyone would ever see them again.

    Death Valley

    On July 29, the family failed to board their scheduled flight home, and when a preliminary investigation was launched there was found to be an odd entry written in a guestbook perched on a metal pole at an abandoned mining ghost town in Warm Springs Canyon, which held the cryptic words “We are going through the pass,” written in German and signed “Conny Egbert Georg Max.” Although it was unclear just what they meant by “the pass,” authorities surmised that they must have meant Mengel Pass, a rather rugged and remote, poorly maintained dirt road that passed through a lifeless barren moonscape on the park’s southwestern border.

    No other sign of the missing group of tourists was turned up until months later, when on October 23, the abandoned mini-van was discovered by a drug surveillance plane, in an isolated sandy ravine far from any road and well off the beaten path for tourists. The doors of the dust encrusted vehicle were found to be locked, and inside were found to be photo film, empty water bottles, sleeping bags, an information booklet, and a carefully folded American flag most likely bought as a souvenir, as well as a single child’s shoe. Other personal belongings such as wallets, passports, keys, or purses were not found, and oddly no tracks were found around the van either. It was as if they had just vanished into thin air. A beer bottle was found lying on the ground not far away, but it was unclear if this had belonged to the missing group or not.

    In the wake of this baffling discovery, over 200 law enforcement officers from both Nevada and California methodically scoured the area on foot, horseback, and from the air, but no further clues were found. For decades the fate of these tourists remained a complete mystery, and theories swirled as to what had happened to them, such as that they had run across nefarious drug dealers and been killed or kidnapped, as well as the ideas that they had staged their own vanishing or that they had simply wandered off into the wilderness and fallen victim to the scathing, inhospitable conditions, but no one knew for sure and there was not a single trace of them or clue to their fate.

    The German tourists’ car

    In 2009, two hikers were traversing the perilous, bleak terrain of a remote area of Mojave Desert park when they came across the gruesome discovery of human bones mired in the sand and brush. The remains, which turned out to be of an adult male and female, were speculated to likely be those of the missing tourists, especially since Cornelia Meyer’s identification was reportedly found lying nearby, but this is not known for sure and the bones were too damaged by the sun for a successful DNA analysis. Despite this gruesome discovery, the remains have not been positively identified, it still remains a mystery as to what happened to them, and the remains of the two children have never been found.

    The case has remained perplexing and widely discussed to this day. What happened to these people? Did they meet with foul play? Were they killed or kidnapped, and if so by who and for what reason? Or did they just succumb to the elements in their foolhardy adventure? Why did they drive their vehicle off road out in the middle of nowhere in the middle of a merciless heat wave, with no provisions and a woefully inadequate water supply? Were they just very adventurous, foolish, or is there some other inscrutable reason? Were those remains of the missing adults, and even if they are what happened to the kids? These are questions for which it seems the answers have remained evasive.

    While the case of the missing Germans is by far the most widely circulated and oft-debated disappearance to have occurred in Death Valley, it is certainly not the only one and is not even the weirdest. Just 2 years later, in the Spring of 1998, five women vanished without a trace in the Los Angeles area, laid against a backdrop of assorted other bizarreness. The women were most notable for being part of a sort of New Age cult headed by the enigmatic Peruvian born New Age writer and philosopher Carlos Castaneda, a graduate student in anthropology at UCLA who had gathered quite a reputation for his outlandish esoteric theories and eccentric lifestyle. He was an extremely successful non-fiction writer of New Age books on supposed ancient, mystical knowledge of Native Americans in the 1970s and early 80s, selling millions of copies of his books with titles like The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of KnowledgeA Separate RealityJourney to Ixtlan, and Tales of Power, which continue to sell well even now despite having received a good amount of scathing skepticism and criticism over the years.

    Carlos Castaneda

    Almost as well known as his books was his reclusive ways and the cult-like movement he formed in 1973, which was based on supposed shamanic secrets he called Tensegrity, which actually proved to be quite popular, spawning countless workshops, seminars, and instructional videos. One of the strangest aspects of the movement was an extremely secretive group of women Castaneda kept close by, a harem of sorts, which were referred to as “the witches.” Very little was known about the witches, what exactly their purpose was, or even how many of them there were, and they typically used aliases and absolutely refused to be photographed, all of which just added to Castaneda’s mystique. It is known that they were frequent users of peyote and engaged in all manner of shamanic mysticism and metaphysics, such as vision quests, speaking with animals, and various rituals.

    Shortly after Castaneda wasted away and died of liver cancer in 1998, five of these witches, Florinda Donner-Grau, Taisha Abelar, Amalia Marquez, Kylie Lundahl, and Patricia Lee Partin, all completely vanished in quick succession. The only clue found at the time was Partin’s vehicle, which had been abandoned at Death Valley’s Panamint Dunes. In 2003, some hikers would find a desiccated corpse half-buried in sand out in the desert wearing shredded clothes. When the remains were finally properly analyzed they were found to be those of Patricia Lee Partin, although the cause of death nor why she had been out in such a remote area of Death Valley could not be determined. One former follower of Castaneda has come forward with his own theory on the matter, saying:

    Castaneda once told her (Partin), if you ever need to rise to infinity, take your little red car and drive it as fast as you can into the desert and you will ascend. And that’s exactly what she did: She took her little red car, drove it into the desert, didn’t ascend, got out, wandered around and fainted from dehydration.

    Patricia Lee Partin

    None of the remains of the other women, nor any trace of them at all, have ever been found. It is widely thought that they likely committed suicide, which is a theory bolstered by Castaneda’s alleged frequent extolling of the virtues of suicide, which he deemed to be a noble way of gaining transcendence. Some of the witches had even been allegedly tasked with scouting locations in Death Valley such as caves and abandoned mines, one of which was spookily located not far from where Partin was found, that could be used as suitable suicide sites. One former follower has said of this:

    He used to talk about suicide all the time, even for minor things. He regularly told us he was our only hope. We were all supposed to go together, ‘make the leap,’ whatever that meant. I didn’t know fully. He’d describe it in different ways. So would the witches. It seemed to be what they were living for, something we were being promised.

    Did all of these women commit suicide out in the wastelands of Death Valley, or are the others still alive out there, as some have suggested? No one knows, and it remains an intriguing mystery. A quite macabre and recent disappearance and death in Death Valley happened in July of 2103, when Ryan Singleton, a 24-year-old former model and aspiring actor from Atlanta, Georgia, went out for a short vacation to Los Angeles. While he was there, he decided to rent a car and drive out to Las Vegas. On July 9, Singleton left Las Vegas to return back to Los Angeles, taking a route that passed right through the unforgiving Mojave Desert. At some point, his car broke down near the small town of Baker, after which he got out and began trudging towards the town along the dusty highway. A highway patrolman supposedly picked him up and offered to give him a ride into town, after which Singleton made a call to his friend from a gas station. He then sat down in the heavy heat to wait for his friend to come pick him up, and at some point disappeared off the face of the earth, being nowhere to be seen when the friend finally arrived.

    Ryan Singleton

    Searches for the missing man turned up not a single shred of evidence as to what had become of him, and it would not be until 74 days later that his body would be found sprawled out in the desert just 2 miles from the gas station, in an area that had already been extensively searched. Spookily, the body was found to be missing nearly all of its internal organs, a very strange detail that authorities would be quick to dismiss as the work of scavengers, even though the rest of the body, including common targets of scavengers such as the eyes, tongue, and other soft tissue, had been relatively intact. The cause of death itself could not be determined and was listed as unknown. Making things even more mysterious is the fact that authorities have been very slow and unable or unwilling to provide further details or information, even to Singleton’s family, with his mother, Iris Flowers, saying:

    I’m waiting for answers. I’m in a holding pattern right now. I don’t know anything other than that my son was found with no organs in his body.

    There has been much speculation that Singleton met up with foul play of some sort, especially since he was not only African American, but also openly gay, but why would they kill him and take his organs? Indeed, there has been much attention placed on the state of the body, with its missing organs, and suspicion over the official statement that it was scavengers as well. The missing organs have rather been blamed on perhaps illegal organ thieves, or that it was the MO of some sadistic serial killer, but the real reason remains murky. It remains a rather bizarre detail that hasn’t been satisfactorily explained.

    In fact, nothing about the case has really been explained to any meaningful degree, and it is shrouded in secrecy and unanswered questions. Chief among these is why would he wander away from the safety of the gas station when he knew his friend was on his way to pick him up, and even then how could he have gotten so totally lost and died just 2 miles away? If he was targeted by nefarious individuals then what was their motive and why would they drag him 2 miles out into the desert instead of just killing him right there at the gas station? And what about those missing organs? Was that done intentionally for some reason or was it the work of scavengers, as authorities seem to think or at least want us to think? What in the world happened to Ryan Singleton? It will likely continue to be another enigma of Death Valley.

    These cases have proven hard to come to a conclusion on. After all, this is one of the most formidable, ruthless places on the planet, with a deadly, scorched landscape that makes it one of the most extreme places on the planet. It seems only natural that it should live up to its title of Death Valley. Yet these cases hold so many elements of the weird and strange details that they seem to go beyond merely people being overcome by an aggressive environment that shuns humans, and indeed life in general. Here we have curious clues, baffling evidence, and questions hopelessly without answers. Death Valley is a seemingly forsaken place that not only lives up to its namesake, but manages to hold about itself mysteries which we may never penetrate.

    Mysterious Metatron’s Cube Crop Circle Found

    I know what you’re thinking … crop circle? Really? I tend to avoid them unless there’s something interesting about it and this one caught my eye because it resembles a Metatron’s Cube, one of those sacred geometry figures that give a crop circle a greater air of mystery as well as a high challenge for perfect completion. Throw in the fact that Metatron is a name that appears often in literature and on television and that the location of the crop circle has an old legend involving the Devil and you’ve got the makings of an interesting tale.

    The 400-feet-wide (120 meters) crop circle was reportedly found on July 18, 2017, in a wheat field near Cley Hill, Warminster, U. K., and photographed by the folks at Cropcircleconnector.com. It’s described as a variation of Metatron’s Cube, so let’s see how close it is.

    Aerial image of the Cley Hill crop circle

    (Cropcircleconnector.com)

    A Metatron’s Cube is a set of 6 circles placed in a hexagon around a central seventh circle, with six more circles extending from the radii of the inner six, for a total of 13. It also has the five Platonic solids or polygons that can be built within a sphere – Tetrahedron (triangular pyramid), Hexahedron (cube), Octahedron (8-sides), Icosahedron (12-sided) and Dodecahedron (20-sided). The 3D Dimension website shows the correct design of Megatron’s Cube and shows the solids, while Linda Moulton Howe at earthfiles.com points out that the Megatron variation crop circle at Cley Hill actually has 18 triangles inside 18 circles that border the triangles.

    Cley Hill saw another crop circle last year – a less-intricate formation said to resemble the calendar wheel of the Mayan Long-Count calendar. But the real mystery of Cley Hill is its association with the devil. According to local legend, the 66-acre mound west of Warminster in Wiltshire was formed by the devil when he was tricked by an old man who recognized him and dropped his sack of dirt that he planned to use to bury the nearby town of Devizes for converting to Christianity.

    Cley Hill

    As fitting of its association with the sacred geometrical shape, the word Metatron has a mathematical origin, coming from the Latin mētātor which means “one who metes out or marks off a place, a divider and fixer of boundaries.” Its most well-known ancient use is in the Judaic Book of Enoch in the form Mattatron, the Recording Angel or the Chancellor of Heaven. Most people today are probably more familiar with Metatron, the Voice of God in Kevin Smith’s movie Dogma, played by the wonderful real voice of the late great Alan Rickman. Metatron also shows up as an angel character played by Curtis Armstrong in the TV series Supernatural, an angel in the manga series O-Parts Hunter and and angel in the science-fiction/fantasy trilogy His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman.

    Aerial image of the Cley Hill crop circle

    (Cropcircleconnector.com)

    With that kind of history both past and present, it’s fitting that the name Metatron is associated with a sacred geometric figure and ended up near a hill with a devilish origin.

    Who made the crop circle on Cley Hill? Who knows? Is its link to Metatron’s Cube an interesting connection and a tale worth telling? Hell yes!

    In Cley Hill in het Engelse Wiltshire is afgelopen week een indrukwekkende graancirkel verschenen.

    De formatie heeft een doorsnee van bijna 100 meter en bevindt zich op een graanakker.

    Zeer indrukwekkende graancirkel verschenen in Cley Hill.

    Graancirkel in Cley Hill (Lucy Pringle)

    In het midden van de graancirkel zijn een aantal driehoeken te zien, die worden omgeven door halve cirkels. Daar vraag is nu hoe de formatie is ontstaan.

    Verstand te boven

    Ieder jaar verschijnen er weer nieuwe formaties, de ene nog mysterieuzer dan de andere. Zelfs wetenschappers verbazen zich erover.

    “Sommige van deze formaties zijn zo immens en complex dat ze het verstand te boven gaan,” zei historicus Richard Dolan.

    Nog nooit

    “Na al die jaren zijn de daders nog nooit op heterdaad betrapt tijdens het maken van deze buitengewone formaties,” voegde hij toe.

    NASA SCIENTISTS FOUND 'GOD' 17,000 LIGHT YEARS AWAY

    Has GOD finally been discovered? Supposedly NASA Scientists believe GOD is 17,000 Light Years Away but is this all true? NASA Scientists were faced with a terrifying image that aimed at a galaxy that was 17,000 light years away. This started the speculation that the supposed Creator of Universe was finally caught on film.  

    The Space Agency's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array or The NuSTAR was directed towards a pulsar called PSR B1509-58, and it's at an extremely staggering distance from earth. What was sent back was a masquerade of an outstretched hand which has become known as the iconic

    Hand of God. 

    -

    Scientists believe the hand to be the remnants of a star which went supernova and ejected an enormous cloud of material which left pulsar PSR B1509-58 in its wake. When the remnant cloud was viewed via high energy X-rays, it showed up as a green, red and blue hand, which is about 175 light years across.

    NuSTAR telescope principal investigator Fiona Harrison said, "NuSTAR's unique viewpoint, in seeing the highest energy X-rays, is showing us well-studied objects and regions in a whole new light'. Fiona added that "The new image depicts a pulsar wind nebula, produced by the dense remnant of a star that exploded in a supernova." What was left behind from all this was a pulsar by the name of PSR B1509-58 which can spin around seven times per second and blow a wind of particles into material that was ejected during the star's death throes.

    When these particles interact with nearby magnetic fields, they produce an X-ray glow in the shape of a hand. Scientists currently are not sure whether the ejected material assumes the shape of a hand, or whether its interaction with the pulsar's particles was just making it appear that way.

    Scientists have gathered a few things from all this being that the NuSTAR hand looks more like a fist which has given them some clues and the red cloud that appeared at the fingertips is its structure called RCW 89. However, some believers that reside on religious websites are not interested in their views.

    THIS 'FLYING SAUCER' WAS SPOTTED ON GOOGLE EARTH OVER ANTARCTICA

    What's going on the icy layer of our Earth called Antarctica? That's a question most conspiracy theorists and UFO Hunters ask as it's a location surrounded by strange phenomena mostly regarded as extraterrestrial activity.

    Many believe it to be hidding a massive ancient city that has been lost for thousands of years if not more, or perhaps an entrance to the 'Inner Earth' where a powerful and advanced civilization reside.  

    But the most popular idea is that of Alien beings having a hidden base extremely inaccessible to humans where the only way to enter is by flying ship through cave holes found on top of the frozen mountains.

    There have been many fantastic claims made by UFO hunters of visible UFOs or alien bases in different regions of Antarctica while they were scouting in Google Earth.

    Most recently, experts believe a flying saucer was spotted hovering in Antarctica!

    STUNNINGLY COMPLEX NEW CROP CIRCLE IN ENGLAND. THIS IS A VIDEO OF FLYING OVER IT!

    A new crop circle appeared overnight a week ago in a field of barley in Cley Hill in Warminster.

    The crop circle is more than 300 feet in diameter and it is one of the most complex and stunning of crop circles to have ever been seen.  

    SEMI-CIRCLES WITH SCALLOPS AT APEX AND TRIANGLES MAKE A STUNNING SIGHT

    The crop circle has edges that are scalloped and two arcs that have semi-circles at both of the sides of each of the apex, which is scalloped, making it a stunning sight. The formation of the crop circle is that of a cube in the center with 12 triangles radiating out from it. But the big question is how did such a stunning and complex design just appear?

    RELATED ARTICLES

    Crop circles are not something that is new, and they are a phenomenon that people just cannot ignore. Different formations of crop circles show up every year and are reported, and many of them have mystified the scientific realm. Some people have said that there is nothing mysterious about crop circles as they have been made using a board and rope and a lot of time and effort. However, there are some amazing things that happen inside the circle, which seem to blow that theory away.

    LEADING RESEARCHER SAYS FORMATIONS ARE SO COMPLEX THEY DEFY REASON

    One of the leading researchers of UFOs in the world, Richard Dolan, also a historian, author and academic, said that some of the formations in some of the crop circles are so complex, along with being immense, that they defy reason. He went on to say that after many decades, no one has been caught in the act of making one of the formations.

    So even scientific minds cannot seem to work out just how and why the crop circles are made, despite the fact that many think they are the work of human beings. Crop circles have been called one of the most science oriented art movements ever. A physicist from the University of Oregon, Richard Taylor, published a paper on crop circles in 2011. He said that crop circle art would not be giving up their secrets so easily. He went on to say that unknown artist would be going out into the countryside to carry out craft, knowing that they are continuing a legacy of one of an art movement that is the most science oriented in history.

    So it does look as though the scientific community is taking crop circles very seriously but why would a physicist come to the conclusion that the circles are man-made and they are not made by extra-terrestrials?

    MAN-MADE OR EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL?

    When really taking the time to look into crop circles, more so with some of the more complex designs, it is hard to believe that the making of them can be attributed to humans, walking around using boards and ropes to make them.

    A crop circle of some 800 feet in diameter was found in England in 2011 and this was a design that was very complex along with being beautiful. This was a design made up of 409 circles forming a triskelion, which is a symbol that has dated back many thousands of years.

    A documentary was made by William Gazecki, with the title of Crop Circles: Quest for Truth and he said that the circle was so big that it had taken them half an hour just to be able to reach the center.

    INTRICACY OF CROP CIRCLES BAFFLE SCIENTISTS

    The intricacy of the crop circle has continued to baffle researchers and scientists, and it was studied by Richard Taylor who said that once again it was among the greatest art revolutions in history. He had studied the grass in the crop circle and came to the conclusion that those who had made it and created the design must have used lasers, GPS devices, and microwaves, because the nodes of some stalks had been blasted on one side. He went on to say that the same effect was copied by localized microwave heating and that this had caused the stocks to flop to one side. With this in mind, he came up with an explanation that was scientifically feasible for the crop circle phenomenon. However, he was not able to say just how the hoaxers would have come by technology that was so advanced.

    IF MAN-MADE SOPHISTICATED TECHNOLOGY WOULD BE USED

    Richard Dolan said that if it was something such as this that was being used to make the crop circles, then there had to be an agency that was highly sophisticated behind the circles. He went on to say that over the region where a crop circle appears, there is usually an electromagnetic field or electromagnetic energy that is rare, known by the name of ionized plasma vortex, which has been called ball lightning.

    The facts were verified, and studies that have been published in the scientific journals continue to come up with explanations that are not extra-terrestrial. Dr, Terence Meadon, a meteorologist, physicist and archaeologist at the University of Oxford said that the balls of light are due to ionized plasmas and wind currents. However, no one knows whether the crop circles are a man-made phenomenon or extra-terrestrial, but one thing that we do know is that they grab the attention of everyone and it is a phenomenon that is worthy of attention.

    Retired USAF Employee spots UFO over Boysen Reservoir outside Shoshone Wyoming

    A strange craft has been accidentally photographed just at the moment the unknown craft flew over a lake outside Shoshone Wyoming.


    The photographer, a retired USAF employee said: On July 1, 2017 I was on my way home from Las Vegas when I had to use the restroom at Boysen Reservoir outside Shoshone Wyoming.

    After returning to my vehicle I realized that I had locked my keys in the truck. I called my wife to bring me the extra set of keys. I was less than 90 miles from my house. It would take her around 90 minutes to get to me.

    I snapped a couple of photos of the lake and sent them to my son. It was around 3pm. My wife arrived and was home around 7pm. I downloaded the pictures from my phone into the computer about 15 days later.

    When I looked at them on the screen something caught my attention on the right side of the picture a little over halfway up.

    I enlarged it and was not sure what I was looking at. I asked my wife to come look at it at normal size. She said "I see a lake and a UFO".


    We both studied it and cannot explain what we were looking at. I am retired USAF and after 20 years of service I can't remember seeing anything that looked like it.

    At the time I took the picture I did not see or hear anything. I would greatly appreciate any information that you could give regarding what this is. Mufon case 85445.

    Edgar Cayce’s Unique Vision of the Antarctica Atlantis Connection Revealed

    Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt and Dr. Joseph Farrell analyzing the strange history and the recent peculiar happenings around the mysterious icy continent of Antarctica.


    The possibility that Antarctica once formed a part of Atlantis in ancient times is explored, along with the idea that a pole shift took place 12,000 years ago and may be responsible for its current position on the globe.

    Edgar Cayce’s unique vision of the enigmatic Atlantean ‘Mighty, Terrible Fire Crystal’ or 'Tuaoi Stone’ which powered the lost civilization is theorized as being the cause for the destruction and inundation of Atlantis.

    Cayce’s High Technology Version of Atlantis.

    While many esoteric traditions embrace the concept of a root culture that rose to great heights and destroyed itself, Cayce’s unique version of Atlantis had them located on the heart of the Atlantic Ocean and fully equipped with Advanced Technology, Flying Ships, Solar Power Stations, Laser Weapons, and Age Rejuvenation Centers.

    He saw two major groups vying for power: the Sons of the Law of One, a spiritually advanced race of psychic avatars, and the Sons of Belial, a powerful group of black magic sorcerers and shadowy engineers.

    The war between these two groups actually set off volcano activity due to misuse of the Fire Crystals and was responsible for splitting the continent into three islands between Florida on one side and Spain on the other.

    Eventually the advanced members of the Law of One group survived founded the Ancient Egyptian and Mayan civilizations and were responsible for the cultural pyramid building as a way to preserve their ancestral memory.

    With the latest happenings and developments that Dr. Farrell has been tracking since last year, is it possible a small part of this Atlantean group also went to Antarctica?

    Roswell UFO Crash Witness Interview: Secrets Yet To Be Revealed

    Sheriff Charles H Fogus

    Despite the ever-changing, self-serving statements brought directly or indirectly by the U.S. Government or authorities, no one ever knew what crashed near the Roswell in July of 1947. Thanks to the courage and determined individuals that have the nerve to speak about what they saw or the role they played in an unexplained event, we can be almost sure of one thing. In July 1947, Deputy Sheriff Charles Fogus and Sheriff Jess Slaughter were walking together to pick up a certain prisoner. Luckily, they heard on their police radio reports of a crashed spacecraft. They then decided to witness the scene. The US military has claimed that the crashed object has been just a weather balloon, but the conspiracy theorists firmly believe the incident was the occurrence of a crash and the recovery of extraterrestrials. 70 Years of Lies, Misinformation, and Government Cover-ups, it is nice to know that law enforcement officers reveal they saw a downed flying saucer and military personnel removing some alien bodies from the scene.

    It is important to keep in mind that these are just two of the many people that had first or second-hand knowledge about the infamous alien crash. Even a quick examination of the collective evidence would indicate this event involved something more than weather, radar balloon or high altitude with a bunch of crash test cadavers or dummies aboard. It was more than a crazy test vehicle that of super-intelligent midgets or children were piloting the New Mexico desert throughout a violent thunderstorm. These facts make the Roswell Incident an essential event that has become an annual reminder of a great mystery that remains unsolved. Up to this day, Roswell is a treasure path of undiscovered secrets. Proof of that comes from the people that still come forward with information about the things that happened in the town. This makes the Roswell incident alive.

    Verified Genuine Video Shows A Real Flying Saucer Taking Off

    real-flying-saucer

    A video showing a flying saucer taking off from the ground is said to be a verified genuine one. It was reportedly a former top-secret US military video recorded during the Cold War. The design of the craft is undoubtedly similar to the famous saucer-shaped UFOs reported all over the world.

    The video shows the UFO-style craft hovering above the ground. The aircraft was allegedly built during a top-secret US military project known the Avrocar.

    The scientists who were responsible for making the UFO a reality believed it would be the next great military flying machine at that time.

    A large central fan powered the flying disc, which believed to be a great alternative to a helicopter.

    The newly released video shows what appear to be test flights of the secret craft at an unnamed base. The makers of the aircraft had hoped it would reach speeds of around 300 mph at a maximum altitude of 10,000 feet and a range of 995 miles.

    In the 1940s and 1950s, a lot of people reported seeing flying saucers across the US, and many have believed that the testing of such experimental aircraft was the reason.

    The US allocated millions of dollar for the Avrocar project, but the finances for the flying saucer eventually diminished in June 1961, and the doomed project was eventually ditched.

    Makers of the Avrocar found that it could only hover around a foot off the ground, highly volatile when travelling at high speeds and too loud to be a combat vehicle, the reasons the doomed project was ditched.

    Why Looking for Aliens Is Good for Society (Even If There Aren't Any)

    The search for life elsewhere in the universe is one of the most compelling aspects of modern science. Given its scientific importance, significant resources are devoted to this young science of astrobiology, ranging from rovers on Mars to telescopic observations of planets orbiting other stars.

    The holy grail of all this activity would be the actual discovery of alien life, and such a discovery would likely have profound scientific and philosophical implications. But extraterrestrial life has not yet been discovered, and for all we know may not even exist. Fortunately, even if alien life is never discovered, all is not lost: simply searching for it will yield valuable benefits for society.

    Why is this the case?

    First, astrobiology is inherently multidisciplinary. To search for aliens requires a grasp of, at least, astronomy, biology, geology, and planetary science. Undergraduate courses in astrobiology need to cover elements of all these different disciplines, and postgraduate and postdoctoral astrobiology researchers likewise need to be familiar with most or all of them.

    By forcing multiple scientific disciplines to interact, astrobiology is stimulating a partial reunification of the sciences. It is helping to move 21st-century science away from the extreme specialisation of today and back towards the more interdisciplinary outlook that prevailed in earlier times.

    By producing broadminded scientists, familiar with multiple aspects of the natural world, the study of astrobiology therefore enriches the whole scientific enterprise. It is from this cross-fertilization of ideas that future discoveries may be expected, and such discoveries will comprise a permanent legacy of astrobiology, even if they do not include the discovery of alien life.

    It is also important to recognise that astrobiology is an incredibly open-ended endeavour. Searching for life in the universe takes us from extreme environments on Earth, to the plains and sub-surface of Mars, the icy satellites of the giant planets, and on to the all-but-infinite variety of planets orbiting other stars. And this search will continue regardless of whether life is actually discovered in any of these environments or not. The range of entirely novel environments opened to investigation will be essentially limitless, and so has the potential to be a never-ending source of scientific and intellectual stimulation.

    Beyond the more narrowly intellectual benefits of astrobiology are a range of wider societal benefits. These arise from the kinds of perspectives – cosmic in scale – that the study of astrobiology naturally promotes.

    It is simply not possible to consider searching for life on Mars, or on a planet orbiting a distant star, without moving away from the narrow Earth-centric perspectives that dominate the social and political lives of most people most of the time. Today, the Earth is faced with global challenges that can only be met by increased international cooperation. Yet around the world, nationalistic and religious ideologies are acting to fragment humanity. At such a time, the growth of a unifying cosmic perspective is potentially of enormous importance.

    In the early years of the space age, the then US ambassador to the United Nations, Adlai Stevenson, said of the world: "We can never again be a squabbling band of nations before the awful majesty of outer space." Unfortunately, this perspective is yet to sink deeply into the popular consciousness. On the other hand, the wide public interest in the search for life elsewhere means that astrobiology can act as a powerful educational vehicle for the popularisation of this perspective.

    Indeed, it is only by sending spacecraft out to explore the solar system, in large part for astrobiological purposes, that we can obtain images of our own planet that show it in its true cosmic setting.

    In addition, astrobiology provides an important evolutionary perspective on human affairs. It demands a sense of deep, or big, history. Because of this, many undergraduate astrobiology courses begin with an overview of the history of the universe. This begins with the Big Bang and moves successively through the origin of the chemical elements, the evolution of stars, galaxies, and planetary systems, the origin of life, and evolutionary history from the first cells to complex animals such as ourselves. Deep history like this helps us locate human affairs in the vastness of time, and therefore complements the cosmic perspective provided by space exploration.

    There is a well-known aphorism, widely attributed to the Prussian naturalist Alexander von Humboldt, to the effect that "the most dangerous worldview is the worldview of those who have not viewed the world". Humboldt was presumably thinking about the mind-broadening potential of international travel. But familiarity with the cosmic and evolutionary perspectives provided by astrobiology, powerfully reinforced by actual views of the Earth from space, can surely also act to broaden minds in such a way as to make the world less fragmented and dangerous.

    I think there is an important political implication inherent in this perspective: as an intelligent technological species, that now dominates the only known inhabited planet in the universe, humanity has a responsibility to develop international social and political institutions appropriate to managing the situation in which we find ourselves.

    In concluding his monumental Outline of History in 1925, HG Wells famously observed: "Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe." Such an observation appears especially germane to the geopolitical situation today, where apparently irrational decisions, often made by governments (and indeed by entire populations) seemingly ignorant of broader perspectives, may indeed lead our planet to catastrophe.

    Researchers Just Launched a Prototype of Humanity's First 'Interstellar Spacecraft'

    By Rae Paoletta 

    Last year, extraterrestrial exploration venture Breakthrough Initiatives announced an ambitious plan to send tonnes of tiny spacecraft to our nearest neighbouring star system, Alpha Centauri. The project, called Breakthrough Starshot, is focused on launching lightweight ‘nanocraft’ to the stars at rip-roaring speeds. Recently, the project took a big leap toward achieving its ultimate goal by successfully sending six test craft into Low Earth Orbit.

    The tiny spacecraft, called “Sprites,” are just 3.5 centimetres on each side and weigh about four grams. Aerospace engineer Zac Manchester, who is leading the design on the Sprites, has been working on them for the last 10 years.

    “What we’ve set out to do from the beginning is push the size limits of spacecraft,” Manchester told Gizmodo. “The question was how small can we make a satellite and still make it do something useful. One of the challenges is how can you get enough power, and given the tiny power you can harvest, how do you communicate back to Earth?”

    Manchester and his fellow researchers hope that eventually, mini spacecraft similar to the Sprites—called StarChips—will be able to travel at 20% the speed of light, which translates to about 37,000 miles per second. It would take a spacecraft travelling at this speed less than seven seconds to reach the Moon from Earth, according to Sky and Telescope.

    Those are speeds and distances no spacecraft of any size has gone before. Currently, the farthest spacecraft ever built is NASA’s Voyager 1, which launched in 1977, and only just reached Interstellar space a few years back.

    For now, the Sprites are chillin’ in Low Earth Orbit. They launched on June 23rd on an Indian rocket called the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). Breakthrough Starshot anticipates that a second satellite will release more soon.

    Obviously, much more work needs to be done before we get our hopes up about an interstellar voyage. But for astrobiology nerds and tinfoil hat believers alike, the Sprites’ successful launch could be an important step toward finding life beyond Earth.

    “The distances are immense and it’s a big challenge,” Manchester added. “We’re a long way out to the eventual goals [of Breakthrough Starshot], but we’re setting the early precedent here.”

    Monster telescope leads search for extraterrestrial life

    A telescope that may be humanity’s best hope of finding extraterrestrial life was switched on yesterday by John Halligan, a government minister who has said he believes aliens exist.

    The International Low-Frequency Array (I-Lofar) telescope is a €150 million network of antennas across Europe that hopes to pick up signals from outer space, detect new planets, uncover the mysteries of black holes and the origins of galaxies.

    Mr Halligan, the minister for training and skills, switched on the Irish Lofar telescope, which is the size of a football pitch, at Birr Castle, Co Offaly. yesterday. “Our galaxy is 100,000 light years across with a billion suns and two billion planets. It would be extraordinary if there was not some form of life,” he said. “I think it’s inevitable that it is out there and today’s launch will certainly help.”

    Mr Halligan, who describes himself as a humanist, has sent out alien-themed Christmas cards in the past and has a longstanding belief in extraterrestrial life. He said described the project as fascinating and said it could lead to many practical uses on earth.

    “Everything from improved planes to satellite mapping of global warming have come from our exploration of space, and this holds many new possibilities,” he said.

    “The search for extraterrestrial intelligence has generally looked for targeted signals sent deliberately our way but scientists are also considering the possibility of accidental receptions, the markers of an industrial society at work,” Mr Gilster said.

    “Lofar opens up a new frequency domain for the search for life. With its omnidirectional antennas and computing resources, it may help us pin down the sources of transient radio signals that could be faint signals from cultures around distant stars.”

    The telescope will also study radio signals from hydrogen that may uncover the mysteries of how the universe moved from its “dark ages” after the big bang to the creation of galaxies.

    Researchers also hope its ultra-sensitive radio detection will tell us more about black holes and uncover planets in the Milky Way and in other galaxies. The chain of 12 telescopes is shared between countries including the Netherlands, the UK, Poland and Germany.

    Ireland will pay €420,000 up front and €90,000 a year to be part of the project. The money will be paid first to Trinity College, and then to Lofar co-ordinators in the Netherlands. University College Dublin, Dublin City University, the Armagh Observatory and the NUI Galway are all involved in the project.

    The facility at Birr Castle has been built next to the historic Leviathan telescope, which was built by the third Earl of Rosse in 1845 and was the largest optical telescope in the world until 1917.

    Is this a UFO spotted over Shrewsbury?

    By Jordan Reynolds | Shrewsbury | News 

    Is it a bird, is it a plane, or is it an unidentified flying object?

    The flying object spotted in Shrewsbury

    Richard and Margaret Pugh were leaving their house in Bicton Heath, Shrewsbury, to get a taxi to the airport when they heard a “low frequency buzzing noise”.

    Mr Pugh said it was a “strange shaped aircraft in the sky about 500ft up”.

    It may look a frisbee flung in the air, but the couple insist they do not know what the object, seen early Wednesday morning, is or here it came from. The 61-year-old added: “Whilst on the way to the airport at about 6:45am, my family and I spotted this strange circle shaped aircraft in the sky just west of Shrewsbury, near Bicton Heath.

    “We were just getting in the taxi to get to the airport on our way to Spain, and we heard a buzzing noise that was a really low frequency and saw this whiz by us. It was only about 500ft up in the sky and was bigger than an RAF Typhoon fighter jet.

    “My wife got her phone out and started frantically pressing the camera snap button to get this image.

    “Our taxi driver said he couldn’t believe his eyes and it was a UFO.”

    “I’ve never seen anything like this and yes it could of been a military drone type aircraft, but having looked on the web we can’t find anything remotely similar.

    “The wife thinks it is aliens and I’m not sure – but not ruling it out.”

    IN BRIEF
    Astronomers are putting forward a theory that could explain the mysterious presence of antimatter in the middle of the Milky Way. Their study suggests that a specific type of supernova is generating all of the previously unexplained particles.

    “SHERLOCKING” OUR GALAXY

    While scientists have already uncovered answers to some of the universe’s greatest mysteries, there’s still a great deal we don’t understand — the “alien megastructure” star, fast radio bursts (FRBs), and the (non-)existence of dark matter are just a few examples. Thanks to new research by a team of astronomers, we may now be able to exclude from this list the previously unexplained mystery of antimatter in the Milky Way.

    Essentially, antimatter is matter with its electrical charge reversed. For example, an electron’s antiparticle is a positron, while a proton’s antiparticle is an antiproton. When a particle of matter meets its antimatter cohort, they release a burst of energy and annihilate each other.

    Some 40 years ago, scientists detected gamma rays that suggested that around 1043positrons were being annihilated in the Milky Way every second. They believe most were concentrated in the central bulge of the galaxy, which didn’t make sense as that area hosts less than half of the galaxy’s total mass. As Roland Crocker, particle astrophysicist at the Australian National Universitytold Space.com“The origin of these positrons is a 40-year-old mystery in astrophysics.”

    That mystery may finally have a resolution, and it’s a relatively simple one. “You don’t need anything exotic like dark matter to explain the positrons,” claims Crocker. Instead, he and his research team suggest that the positrons may have come from just one kind of supernova. Their study has been published in Nature Astronomy.

    DEAD STARS, LOST STARS

    Crocker’s team thinks that dim supernovas known as SN 1991bg-like could create all of those unexplained positrons. These supernovas result from the merging of two superdense white dwarf stars, and they generate a huge number of radioactive isotopes known as titanium-44, which is capable of releasing the positrons being annihilated.

    But why were these positrons concentrated at the interior of the Milky Way? The researchers explained that SN 1991bg-like supernovas — unlike those resulting from the death of young, massive stars — likely occur in galactic neighborhoods with stars roughly 3 billion to 6 billion years old. Our galaxy’s central bulge happens to have a population of stars older than those in its outer disk.

    Of course, while the simplest explanation does often prove to be the right one, Crocker isn’t ruling out a more exciting solution to this decades-old mystery. “The most recent data show that there’s a positron source connected to the very center of the galaxy,” he said. “In our model, this is explained as due to the old stars distributed on roughly 200-parsec [650 light years] scales around the galaxy’s supermassive black hole, but the black hole itself is an interesting alternative source.”

    A Powerful Energy Beam in Space Seems to Exceed the Speed of Light

     Newborn Star, Jets, Light, Space, Cosmos, Galaxy
    IN BRIEF
    Strange beams of plasma that have been observed that seem to defy the laws of physics by moving faster than the speed of light.

    A FASCINATING COSMIC Q-TIP

    In the Galaxy M87 (which was created when two other galaxies merged), a jet of hot plasma — caused by gas being sucked into a central black hole, being heated, and then shot out by magnetic fields — has been helping us gain insight into the weird origins of our galaxy. It is shaped like a thin beam and is emitted from the center of a black hole.

    Heber Curtis, an astronomer, first saw a ray of light connected to the galaxy in 1918. In order to see it with his instruments at the time, it had to be huge. And it turns out, it was; measuring at almost 6000 light years long.

    The Hubble Space Telescope monitored its development between 1995 and 1999 and, after four years of photos, they saw the plasma ripple outwards faster than what was being emitted from the black hole, meaning it must be moving faster than the speed of light. In 2013, after 13 years of images, it appeared to move in corkscrew-like spirals, making this strange occurrence even more mystifying.

    UNDERSTANDING OUR UNIVERSE

    M87 is, however, not unique in this way. Since the first observation, researchers have discovered similar phenomena in other galaxies. Although the causes behind it are still enigmatic, these observations could aid us in our search in understanding how black holes function in the creation or destruction of galaxies. Similarly, an enormous magnetic bridge spanning multiple galaxies has been recently discovered.

    Eileen Meyer, Assistant Professor of Physics at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, said about the plasma,“We can see, over a human lifetime, things moving […] Which is crazy.” The speed of this process is particularly remarkable because of how powerful it is.

    Scientists Have Discovered That There is Water Under the Moon’s Surface

    IN BRIEF
    New research from Brown University suggests that huge amounts of water may be found under the surface of the Moon. The presence of water in the Moon's mantle could provide insight to how water got to Earth and help sustain future deep space missions.

    A “WET” MANTLE

    Scientists have long speculated about the presence of water on the Moon. Previous studies found traces of water in the icy shadowed regions of the Moon’s poles, but a recent study from Brown University suggests that there may be substantial amounts of water hiding inside the lunar rock.

    Unlike the water in the lunar poles, which could have been caused by hydrogen coming from solar winds, the water in the mantle came very early in the Moon’s formation, Brown University geologist Ralph Milliken said in an interview with Space.com. In their study published in the journal Nature Geoscience, Milliken and his team examined pyroclastic deposits — rock layers which were probably formed from large volcanic eruptions — using satellite data from the Moon Mineralogy Mapper instrument on the Indian Chandrayaan-1 probe.

    “Our work shows that nearly all of the large pyroclastic deposits also contain water, so this seems to be a common characteristic of magmas that come from the deep lunar interior,” Milliken said in the interview. “That is, most of the mantle of the moon may be ‘wet.'”

    FUELING FUTURE EXPLORATIONS

    How large amounts of water ended up under the Moon’s surface remains unclear. Understanding it the water got there, possibly “delivered after the giant impact event,” as Milliken’s team thinks, could help explain how water came to be on Earth.

    Even more interesting is the potential help lunar water could give to future exploration on the Moon and beyond. “These deposits may be much easier to access than potential water ice in shadowed regions at the lunar poles,” Milliken added in the interview. “Water is heavy and expensive to take from Earth to space, so any bit of water that you can get on the moon instead of bringing with you from Earth is a big deal and opens up possibilities for sustained human presence on the moon.”

    This would be especially useful since some Mars missions in the works right now — notably NASA’s — involve using the Moon as a jump off point. A potential lunar base would be easier to maintain given the presence of water on Earth’s satellite.

    “The better we understand how much water is there, then the better we can estimate the processes responsible and the usefulness of the deposits for future human exploration,” Milliken said to Space.com.

    NASA Developed an X-Plane that Can Go Supersonic Without a Boom

    IN BRIEF
    NASA has bought supersonic aircrafts a step further by completing the preliminary design review for a Quiet Supersonic Transport. It is one of many projects that could herald a second golden age of flight.

    A THUMP IN THE FLIGHT

    NASA’s Quiet Supersonic Transport (QueSST) — an experimental X-plane the organization has been developing with Lockheed Martin to decrease the strength of sonic booms — has passed an initial design review. It flew successfully in an 2.5-meter by 2-meter (eight-foot by six-foot) supersonic wind tunnel at NASA’s Glenn Research Center.

    The plane is the first stage in NASA’s wider plan to make the Low Boom Flight Demonstration (LBFD) airplane, and it completed its objective comfortably. A NASA statement said “the QueSST design is capable of fulfilling the LBFD aircraft’s mission objectives, which are to fly at supersonic speeds — 1.4 times the speed of sound — but create a soft ‘thump’ instead of the disruptive sonic boom associated with supersonic flight today.”

    The next stages in the plan are to hire a contractor to build the piloted, single-engine plane, with initial flight testing ideally occurring in 2021. The next test will focus on ascertaining the consequences the atmosphere has on supersonic speed and quantifying the effect the plane will have on people on the ground through a combination of measurement and survey findings.

    YEAR OF THE PLANE?

    NASA’s experimental plane is one of many test aircraft that are looking to push the boundaries of aviation in different directions.

    In terms of pure speed, Lockhead Martin has confirmed that the SR-72 — reportedly capable of mach 6 speeds — will be made for surveillance purposes, while British-based Skylon is planning to use a 5.4 mach plane to deliver payloads into space.

    Microsoft Co-Founder Paul Allen is also looking to apply planes to cosmic ends, but has developed the biggest plane ever rather than one of the fastest. After testing is complete, the Stratolaunch will be used to ferry spacecraft into orbit where they will require less energy to reach space when compared to a ground take off.

    Eviation Aircraft will target the green aviation industry by producing an all-electric prototype which could be the first stage in decreasing the carbon footprint of the aircraft industry. The plane is produces zero-emissions and is capable of flying 965 km/h (600 mph).

    BETZ MYSTERY SPHERE – AN ALIEN ARTIFACT FOUND BY A FAMILY?

    THIS IS A STRANGE AND UNUSUAL STORY OF THE BETZ MYSTERY SPHERE THAT COULD DEFY THE LAWS OF GRAVITY…BUT NO ONE KNEW WHAT IT WAS OR WHERE IT HAD CAME FROM.

    In 1974, the Betz family made as startling discovery that took the world media by storm. But no one knew what this mysterious metal ball was, which has become known as The Betz Mystery Sphere.

    FINDING THE MYSTERY SPHERE

    Fire ravaged 880 acres of a woodland property on Fort George Island, Florida that had a history going back to the 16th century, where a Spanish mission had once been located.

    download (2) Antone and Gerri with the Betz Mystery Sphere

    While Antoine Betz a Marine Engineer and his wife Gerri were examining the fire damage to their property, they came across a strange sphere on the ground.

    At first they thought it may have been cannonball given the areas history – but they soon realized by the highly polished metal surface of the seamless orb…this was something different.

    They then thought maybe the space aged looking object could have fallen from a NASA or Soviet satellite, flying above and somehow landed on their property.

    Thy mysterious orb was about the size of a bowling ball and weight 22 lbs; but the unusual thing was that it had a strange elongated triangle, that was etched on the surface.

    Seeing it as only a strange curiosity, the family decided to take it home with them and their son Terry, wanted to keep it in his room – but that did not last for too long.

    UNUSUAL THINGS BEGAN TO HAPPEN WITH THE BETZ MYSTERY SPHERE

    A couple weeks after the unusual find, Terry was playing his guitar and to his shock, the metallic orb started to react to the sound of the strumming. According to his testimony, the sphere resonated out a deep throbbing noise that seemed to greatly upset the family dog. Then it began to move to certain chords being played.

    download (3) Terry Betz and The Betz Sphere

    It didn’t take long before the Betz family discovered that the strange object had other strange characteristics.

    When they pushed it across the floor, it would stop, vibrate then suddenly change direction and return back to the person who had pushed it.

    They also saw it roll around the edge of the table finely balanced but it did not fall off onto the floor. On one occasion, they tilted the table at an angle, then saw that the sphere defy gravity and travel back up the leg of the table.

    The family also claimed that it rolled for approximately 12 minutes continuously, while changing direction by itself but never once stopping. They considered all options and decided that it may have been fitted with a very sophisticated guidance system that allowed it to do this.

    From what they had observed, the strange orb seemed to be powered by solar energy (even though solar energy was first discovered by Alexandre Edmond Becquerel in 1839, it was not in commonly used in 1974). They noticed that when the sun was shining brightly –  the orb was more active.

    download (1) Antoine Betz showing The Betz Mystery Sphere

    Terry who had a curious nature, decided that he would do some tests of his own to try and work out what this strange object was.

    First he gently hit the sphere with a hammer, which resulted in it ringing like a bell. Then he shook it vigorously and the orb suddenly rolled around the room as if trying to escape from him.

    It is rumored that at night the Betz family would keep it in a sealed box – so that it would not escape.

    Occasionally the orb would emit a rattling or low frequency vibration, as if there was some sort of mechanism running inside.

    The Betz family were stunned at the sphere’s capabilities and started showing it to family and friends – they were equally shocked and it rapidly became an object of fascination.

    SCIENTIFIC STUDY INTO THE BETZ MYSTERY SPHERE

    download (6) Military men discussing something

    Word soon got around about the Betz Mystery Sphere and quickly it started a media frenzy – everyone wanted to know about this strange ball.

    Both officials from NASA, The Military Corp and Arial Phenomena Research Organization (APRO) were sent out to see the sphere. They examined the steel object and could determine that there was no indication that it was manufactured or tampered with.

    The military personnel would arrive skeptical onlookers, but by the time they left, were full of questions.

    Despite requests from officials to take the ball to a lab for testing, the Betz family refused…but soon they had no choice.

    THE BETZ MYSTERY SPHERE IS STUDIED

    Soon the sphere started to exhibit strange and almost poltergeist behavior.

    images (22) A stainless steel ball

    Doors would suddenly slam shut of their own accord and at night the house would fill with loud organ music – despite the fact that the Betz family did not own an organ.

    This quickly became too much for the Betz family, so they agreed to allow the orb to be tested under scientific conditions – they wanted to know what this was?

    The orb was taken to Jacksonville Naval Air Station in Florida, where the sphere was given to both scientists and metallurgists to examine.

    They tried to x-ray the sphere to see what was inside, however x-ray machine was not strong enough to penetrate the metal, which they found baffling.

    They determined that sphere was 7.96 inches wide (20 cm) and 21.43 pounds (9.67 kilograms), which could withstand 120,000 of pressure per square inch. It was made of magnetic stainless steel of the excellent quality, designed to withstand the highest heat temperatures and was corrosive resistant.

    FURTHER STUDIES INTO THE BETZ MYSTERY SPHERE

    The navy eventually used a 300 KV x-ray and discovered 2 objects inside the sphere – surrounded by a halo of material with unusual density. They also discovered that the spheres displayed 4 magnetic poles, 2 positive and 2 negative which did not have the same center.

    It also showed signs of being radioactive but it was not explosive and one scientist (Dr Carl Wilson) was noted as saying that it“defies the law know to physics”. Another scientist (Dr J A Harder) is reported to have said that the elements inside were heavier than anything known to science.

    THE MYSTERY CONTINUES

    There have been people who have tried to debunk the Betz Mystery Sphere with many explanations ranging from: it was a lost steel ball that was meant to be used for an art project – to a sea bottom marker that somehow got into their burnt out field.

    Since that time, other orbs have been found on earth  since 1974 that include from Australia, Russia, Iraq and America …but no one knows what they are or where they come from.

    Now over time no one talks anymore about The Betz Mystery Sphere – but where is it now? No one seems to know….and it has somehow disappeared from many people’s mind.

    Six Of The Most Widely-Believed Alien Conspiracy Theories

    Disappointed by Skyline? Tantalized by Castle’s X-Files-y episode this week? Want an alien conspiracy with some meat on its bones (or exoskeleton, as the case may be)? Here are six of the greatest real-life alien conspiracy theories.

    Actually, “real-life” is kind of a dubious term when talking about this kind of thing. The world of alien conspiracies is an improbably complex and interwoven one. It’s filled with weird personalities, unexplainable events, half-remembered government secrets, and countless races of alien visitors, all with their own agendas.

    1. Roswell

    So let’s start with arguably the grand-daddy of UFO conspiracy events: the supposed Roswell UFO incident. In 1947, the Roswell Air Force Base issued a press release saying that they’d found a mysterious metallic disc on a nearby ranch. The press was, of course, intrigued, but the base quickly changed their wording slightly: they’d found what appeared to be the remnants of a weather balloon.

    The change was not quick enough, of course: the local papers ran giant headlines saying that the air force had recovered a crashed alien spaceship. And in the years since, that story has stuck, as accounts surfaced from employees at the base that include multiple crash sites, massive cover-ups, and even a reported alien autopsy (a film released in 1995 purported to depict the actual autopsy, but it its creator admitted that “most” of the footage was fake, thereby sort of discrediting all of the footage).

    Die-hards still stand by these scant accounts of fishy dealings at Roswell. The supposed cover-up has permeated public perception of the base, leading to a Star Trek plot, a Futurama episode, and even an entire TV series, among many others. It also launched a veritable squadron of alien conspiracies. Some still believe that the spaceship remnants and alien bodies have been squirreled away in some sort of secret military enclave.

    2. Area 51

    And Area 51 might just be that military enclave. The actual base has long been a very closely-guarded secret, including wide “trespassers will be shot” stretches around the base itself and a large no-fly zone surrounding it.

    According to conspiracy theorists, what we can see of Area 51 is just the tip of the paranoid iceberg. The base allegedly features elaborate underground labs, hidden tunnels, a dedicated extra-terrestrial runway that can disappear and reappear, and research programs dedicated to reverse-engineering alien technology.

    In one particularly colorful and alluring detail, two different alleged former Area 51 employees reported working side-by-side with an alien being named “J-Rod” on cloning alien viruses and on a telepathic translator device (it’s funnier if you imagine J-Rod as Jar-Jar; I’d watch that movie).

    And the mystery of Area 51 is still only one example of the vast network of supposed government cover-up of alien contact.

    3. Project Blue Book and the Majestic 12

    The government has been relatively transparent with Project Blue Book. It was an endeavor for the US government to catalog and examine every instance of supposed alien contact, visitation, and spacecraft reported to them. The project spanned years (and many incarnations), and its official result was that there existed no substantial evidence that these incidents were the result of alien visitation.

    But that didn’t stop conspiracy theorists. In addition to challenging the rigor of the study, some “experts” on the subject stand by the claim that Blue Book became a distraction and cover-up from the reality of alien visitation, which included a top secret international squad called Majestic 12 to perpetrate the elaborate smoke-screen. Among the alleged weaponry of this massive cover-up are disinformation campaigns, character assassination, and elaborate webs of government lies.

    Another weapon in the cover-up arsenal is the network of supposed Men in Black responsible for doing the actual dirty work. You’ve seen them in Will Smith movies and on the X-Files, but die-hard alien conspiracy theorists claim they’re everywhere, as CIA agents, or as shape-shifting aliens, or even inter-dimensional beings. Some even report encounters with these men in black (like the account in the video above), and some say they have the smashed cameras and bruises to prove it.

    But WHY would the government try to cover up alien invasions? Just what are they hiding?

    4. The Reptilians

    The cover-up might just be so that world leaders can hide their true reptilian nature. Conspiracy theorist (and very creative thinker) David Icke is the man primarily responsible for the paranoia about secret shape-shifting reptile-like aliens invading Slitheen-style and replacing high-ranking political leaders. There are countless videos and images all over the internet purporting to depict these reptilians slipping and revealing their true selves.

    One of my favorite details about Icke’s worldview is that of the Red Dresses. These are personality-less software constructs of the reptilian invaders installed at high rank to facilitate the aliens’ plans. This particular theory is what leads to stunning images like the one above, which reveals a few of the “red dresses” in their true form.

    Another proponent of this reptilian-invasion worldview recently gained a bit of notoriety when discussing her own version of the conspiracy. Her name is Colleen Thomas, and she wants to warn us all of the impending shadow-government dirty bombing and a Draconian-Reptilian invasion.

    These reptilian usurpers and shape-shifters are supposed to have been around for millennia, manipulating all of human history for their own gain. But Icke and his reptilian cronies aren’t the first to propose alien invasions in ancient history.

    5. Ancient Astronauts

    As long as we’re talking about extraterrestrials secretly influencing human history, we have to talk about the “ancient astronauts.” Erich von Däniken, in his landmark (in certain circles) book, Chariots of the Gods?, posits that Earth has been the frequent recipient of alien visitors. These visitors have brought with them advanced technologies, some of which helped build the pyramids, the Moai statues on Easter Island, Stonehenge, and more.

    Many religions have developed as a response to this particular conspiracy, and we’ve covered some of the most absurd ones before. Hidden histories like this tend to have religious implications. But, as the next item demonstrates, they sometimes have unexpected political implications.

    6. Esoteric Hitlerism

    As with any internet discussion, it all eventually turns to a discussion of Nazism. And alien conspiracy theories are no exception, with my favorite of the weird extraterrestrial conspiracies, Esoteric Hitlerism.

    Spearheaded by Miguel Serrano, Esoteric Hitlerists believe that the Aryan race is descended from an alien species of the highest order. Finding evidence in the story of the Nephilim in the bible, Serrano believes that an ancient alien civilization came to Earth to enlighten man. They bred with ancient earthlings, and the Aryan race are the only race alive that maintains any of the purity in their blood of these lofty ancestors. Serrano taught that the alien gods were hiding, with Adolf Hitler, in an icy underground fortress, from which they will one day emerge with fleets of spacecraft to usher in the Fourth Reich.

    Yikes.

    So if you are disappointed by a fictional portrayal of the secret alien interactions with humanity, you can always fall back on the real things that people believe. Sometimes, especially in the case of Esoteric Hitlerism, not only is the truth stranger than fiction – some people’s version of the truth is just too strange for fiction.

    5 Mysterious Ancient Underground Worlds

    Expeditions exploring deep, mysterious tunnels and caves in various parts of the world return with strange tales of subterranean civilizations, cities and advanced yet ancient technology.
    Many of these remarkable underground worlds remain shrouded in mystery because we have not been able to locate them yet. There are also fascinating very old underground tunnels, caves and cities that have been discovered, but the history behind them remains unsolved because we have no idea who built them and for what purposes.

    1. UNDERGROUND TUNNEL SYSTEM BENEATH THE PYRAMIDS OF GIZA

    There is a lost history completely ignored by mainstream scholars when it comes to the Ancient Egyptian Civilization and the enigmatic Pyramids which according to many predates the Egyptian Civilization itself.

    West of the middle pyramid on the Giza Plateau, the ground rises to its highest point where there are some of the surviving buildings of The Harvard camp, established by George Reisner in 1902 to pursue the aims of the Hearst Expedition of the University of California. The high ground suddenly drops away beyond the buildings leaving eroded cliffs facing north which have many tomb entrances dotted along its length.

    The Labyrinth of Egypt has been described by a number of ancient writers such as Herodotus, Strabo, Diodorus, and Pliny. The labyrinth’s age and ancient origins are unclear, but at the time of Herodotus’ visit it was more than 1,300 years old.

    2. Tunnels in Bucegi Mountains

    In the summer of 2003, in an unexplored area of the Bucegi mountains, an epochal discovery was found that would completely change the destiny of mankind.

    There are 4 primary tunnels and further sub-tunnels that lead to deep underground places which you would have heard of.

    In these tunnels you will find rooms, huge rooms, with huge tables and stone chairs for people much, much taller than us.

    The projection room contains all our history and can be replayed visually.

    A table where you can perform holographic experiments with DNA, mix and match anything you wish and see what the results would be.

    These rooms were created at least 50,000 years ago and each is connected to each other, protected by an energy source which actives all as one is activated.

    3. Underground City Beneath Death Valley

    The very thought that there could be a secret city lying beneath California’s Death Valley that is more than 5,000 years old is astonishing and difficult for many people to believe. But for those who have entered the subterranean tunnels underneath the ground and visited this amazing location, it is all very real. There are many who believe that the underground city was once inhabited by an unknown race, now thousands of years later, the area is abandoned, however, visitors say that they have witnessed some strange artifacts while exploring inside.

    The ancient city known as Shin-Au-Av could have been home to many different races, but it is important to look at the legends of the Paiute Indians before you start to imagine various creatures of the unknown lurking underground.

    4. Lost Cave City in the Grand Canyon?

    Did an ancient civilization live in caves below the Grand Canyon? This is as vague a statement as wondering why some of the ancient Mesoamerican people depicted their gods as white men or the Olmec gods looked African. Stretching the imagination … perhaps whatever was found in the Grand Canyon caves discussed below, is linked to Ancient Alien Theory. It is interesting to speculate on ancient Egyptians or Tibetans flying to the Grand Canyon in Vimanas, but, to date, there is no tangible proof to support these claims.

    5. Highly Sophisticated Underground City Of Derinkuyu

    The underground city of Derinkuyu is an ancient city located beneath the surface of the Derinkuyu district in the Nevşehir Province, Turkey. It is one of the most amazing underground cities to have been discovered, and no one knows its exact age, making this already awesome underground city even cooler.

    In 1963, approximately 50 miles (30 km) south of Nevsehir, Cappadocia, Turkey, Omer Demir stumbled across a deep hole (in Turkish: derinkuyu) that led to a steep path leading deeper down to passages, niches and shafts dug into the bedrock.

    After intensive excavation, it became clear that Derinkuyu was an entire city complex built in that hole beneath the surface.

    Paul Seaburn

    If your doctors can’t figure out what’s wrong with you, don’t blame them … blame the universe. A new study found that half of your body, not to mention half of everything around you, comes from a galaxy other than the Milky Way. No wonder we have so many half-assed half-wits pushing half-baked theories full of half-truths and half-cocked schemes. Blame it on the halves from Andromeda.

    Actually, the theory is not as half-baked as it sounds. Daniel Anglés-Alcázar, the leader of the study published this week in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, points to galactic winds as the culprit.

    It is likely that much of the Milky Way’s matter was in other galaxies before it was kicked out by a powerful wind, traveled across intergalactic space and eventually found its new home in the Milky Way.

    A long time ago from a galaxy far, far away …

    His team at the Northwestern University astrophysics center, CIERA (Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics), developed a supercomputer model to simulate various scenarios of how galaxies were formed in order to study wind recycling. Let your imagination run wild on that phrase for a minute. Finished? Wind recycling occurs when galactic winds are formed by supernovae and push gas particles around at high speeds. Some of this wind leaves the supernova’s galaxy, but a small amount gets sucked back in and used again – wind recycling. Did your imaginary picture of it involve deep breathing and a crowded galactic elevator?

    As is the case in so many simulations, what the scientists found had nothing to do with what they were looking for. The models showed that the wind frequently escapes from its own galaxy and travls billions of light years across space to be absorbed in other galaxies and form new stars. . For some reason, this flow occurs most often from small galaxies to larger ones. Anglés-Alcázar got to name this phenomenon “intergalactic transfer.”

    It was actually surprising for us to find out that there is that much exchange of mass between galaxies.”

    Which one are you from?

    How much is ‘that much’? The simulations showed that a galaxy like the Milky Way (do we really care that much about the other ones?) got half of its matter from other galaxies. The disbelieving researchers checked their figures by converting the simulations to 3-D and the intergalactic transfer produced the same results … in 3-D.

    For those who want to be space travelers but don’t think it will happen in their lifetime, Anglés-Alcázar has good news for you.

    Given how much of the matter out of which we formed may have come from other galaxies, we could consider ourselves space travelers or extragalactic immigrants.

    If we’re all extragalactic immigrants on this planet, isn’t it time we stopped pointing fingers and started getting along?

    Deformed 'alien' skull found in Crimea belonged to a toddler who had his head bound in a Sarmatian tradition to create child warriors almost 2,000 years ago

    • Archaeologists made the startling find at a burial site in Kyz-Aul, close to Kerch
    • The artificially lengthened heads were a feature of the Sarmatian culture
    • They were thought to alter the character and make warriors more aggressive
    • The boy is believed to have been aged between 18 months and two years old

    An 'alien boy' with a weirdly elongated skull found in a tomb in Crimea was in fact a a boy marked out to be an ancient warrior, say Russian archaeologists.

    The artificially lengthened head was a feature of children being groomed as Sarmatian fighters almost 2,000 years ago, they say.

    Archaeologists made the startling find at a burial site close to a giant £2.9billion ($3.8billion) bridge currently under construction.

    It was immediately called an 'alien's grave', said the scientists.

    ELONGATED SKULL 

    One of the most characteristic traits of the Late Sarmatian culture was the artificial deformation of skulls.

    This was probably accomplished by tying a soft cloth around the infant's head, forcing an elongation of the cranium. 

    Special wooden planks were bound to the skull, pressing the bones and gradually altering the shape.

    Such deformations were seen as altering the character, and making the warriors 'more aggressive'. 

    This cultural trait was specific to the populations living east of the Don River, according to the Silk Road foundation.

    The high amount of offensive weapons found in Sarmatian graves indicates they lived a military-oriented nomadic life. 

    The find was made at Kyz-Aul, close to Kerch, where Vladimir Putin has commissioned construction of the bridge.

    It will connect the peninsula, annexed from Ukraine in a 2014 military operation, to mainland Russia.

    One Russian state media outlet reported that 'some adherents of "ancient astronauts" theories claim that the owners of such lengthened skulls may be human-extraterrestrial hybrids'.

    The boy warrior from the second century AD is believed to have been aged between 18 months and two years old when he died.

    Nikolay Sudarev, a scientist from the Archaeology Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences, denied the grave was linked to alien civilisations.

    'Elongated skulls were traditional for the Sarmatian culture,' he said, according to Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper.

    'They thought this was more beautiful.'

    The artificially elongated skull was a sign of a 'true warrior' and the deformation process was practiced by a number of ancient cultures.

    It began early in childhood when the bones were still soft, and no surgery was needed.

    Near the skeleton was found a vessel made of clay, along with tiny beads.

    On the boy's arm there was a copper bracelet.

    While this infant was identified as male the Sarmatians were also famed for their female warriors who helped to conquer Crimea in ancient times.

    The prominent role of the group's women in warfare was seen as an inspiration to the Amazons.

    Langwerpige schedel gevonden in ‘graf van alien’. Deze archeologen onthullen verrassende vondst

    Op de Krim is in een graftombe het skelet gevonden van een jongen met een vreemd gevormde schedel. Volgens Russische archeologen was de jongen een Sarmatiaanse strijder.

    De archeologen deden de verrassende vondst in de buurt van een enorme brug die in aanbouw is. Meteen werd gesproken van ‘het graf van een alien’, aldus de wetenschappers.

    De resten zijn gevonden in Kyz-Aul, in de buurt van de stad Kertsj. De brug zal het schiereiland verbinden met het vasteland van Rusland.

    Mens-alien-hybrides

    Russische staatsmedia meldden dat dergelijke schedels volgens complottheoretici toebehoorden aan mens-alien-hybrides.

    Nikolaj Soedarev van de Russische Academie van Wetenschappen zei dat het graf niet kon worden gelinkt aan buitenaardse beschavingen.

    Hij zei tegenover de krant Moskovskij Komsomolets dat langwerpige schedels binnen de Sarmatiaanse cultuur normaal waren.

    Echte strijder

    Ze vonden dit er mooier uitzien. Een langwerpige schedel maakte iemand een ‘echte strijder’. Ook andere culturen deden aan schedelvervorming.

    Bij kinderen werden houten planken om de schedel gebonden, die druk uitoefenden op de botten en langzaam maar zeker de vorm van de schedel veranderden.

    Dergelijke vervormingen maakten de strijders ‘agressiever’. De Sarmaten stonden ook bekend om hun vrouwelijke strijders, die in de oudheid hielpen om de Krim te veroveren.

    Piramide

    Bij het skelet werden verder kralen en aardewerk gevonden. Om zijn arm droeg de jongen een koperen armband.

    De Sarmaten dreven op de Krim handel met de Grieken en Romeinen. Rond 300 voor Christus beheerste het volk de steppen ten noorden van de Zwarte Zee.

    Enige tijd terug werd volgens het Crimean News Agency ook al een piramide ontdekt op de Krim.

    Retired USAF Employee spots UFO over Boysen Reservoir outside Shoshone Wyoming

    A strange craft has been accidentally photographed just at the moment the unknown craft flew over a lake outside Shoshone Wyoming.


    The photographer, a retired USAF employee said: On July 1, 2017 I was on my way home from Las Vegas when I had to use the restroom at Boysen Reservoir outside Shoshone Wyoming.

    After returning to my vehicle I realized that I had locked my keys in the truck. I called my wife to bring me the extra set of keys. I was less than 90 miles from my house. It would take her around 90 minutes to get to me.

    I snapped a couple of photos of the lake and sent them to my son. It was around 3pm. My wife arrived and was home around 7pm. I downloaded the pictures from my phone into the computer about 15 days later.

    When I looked at them on the screen something caught my attention on the right side of the picture a little over halfway up.

    I enlarged it and was not sure what I was looking at. I asked my wife to come look at it at normal size. She said "I see a lake and a UFO".


    We both studied it and cannot explain what we were looking at. I am retired USAF and after 20 years of service I can't remember seeing anything that looked like it.

    At the time I took the picture I did not see or hear anything. I would greatly appreciate any information that you could give regarding what this is. Mufon case 85445.

    Explain This! Flying "Reptile" Head caught on camera over the River Tay, Scotland?

    While visiting the river Tay in Scotland a family photographed a strange object in the sky described as a strange huge brown egg shaped object, but to me it looks like the head of a reptile or fish.


    Now it is known that sometimes, fish falling from the sky once they get up into the weather system caused by severe weather conditions. It is common for example for tornados to suck up water and fish from rivers and drop them hundreds of miles away.

    If such an event happens than mostly hundreds of fish falling from the sky at once, but in this case we only see a head which doesn't seem to fall out from the sky.

    The photographer states: On July 28, 2017 I was at the beach with family and we saw dolphins in the river Tay. My girlfriend from Bulgaria doesn't believe that we have dolphins in the river in Scotland so I tried to snap some shots of them with my Sony Xperia x 23mp camera.

    I took several pictures while focusing on the water and when I looked back to see if I had caught any dolphins emerging, one of the photos in the middle of the set taken had a strange brown egg shaped object in the sky.


    Clearly the object is in the distance and is not dirt on or in my lens as my device is waterproof therefore airtight and nothing shows in the pictures before or after. I just can't explain it.

    Can you explain it?

    Tides on exoplanets could drive alien biological clocks

    Time and tide help to get life going

    Worlds with a permanent day and night side aren’t obvious places to look in the search for extraterrestrial life. Apart from having extremes of temperature, such planets would make it hard for a biological clock to get going.

    But now it seems that if these worlds also have oceans, then tides could drive a biological clock just like a rising and setting sun would, according to a simulation by Avi Loeb and Manasvi Lingam at Harvard University.

    We used to think that not having a day-night cycle would make it harder for life to emerge, because of the lack of a circadian clock. On Earth, these built-in timekeepers play an important role in several biological contexts, including reproduction.

    Learn more about the hunt for alien life: At New Scientist Live in London

    Of course, it’s possible to imagine aliens without biological clocks, but how life could evolve without one is difficult to imagine.

    “There is abundant evidence that biological clocks are essential to modern life on Earth, and that biological clocks may have evolved very early in the history of life on Earth, either in cyanobacteria or in other single-celled organisms,” says Jennifer Macalady at Pennsylvania State University.

    Tides make life tick

    Loeb and Lingam’s study shows tides could play the role of timekeeper. If a planet with one side always facing its star has an elliptical orbit, the change in distance as it circles the star would create the back and forth pull needed for tides.

    “Because of the small size of the habitable zone around stars like TRAPPIST-1, the tides are orders of magnitude larger than on Earth,” Loeb says.

    Tides would form ponds as they go out, and can also help dissipate heat caused by volcanic activity or proximity to the planet’s star, mimicking periodic evaporation caused by a rising and setting sun. Each cycle would concentrate chemicals essential for the emergence of life. Eventually, life could evolve with its days and nights governed by the flow of the ocean.

    This might sound alien, but even on Earth some animals’ biological clocks are set by the tides rather than the sun. So-called circatidal rhythms govern the lives of certain fish and crabs.

    What kinds of worlds are likely to have a permanent day and night side? Some planets orbiting dwarf stars, like the nearby Proxima Centauri or TRAPPIST-1, are much closer to their host stars than we are to our sun. Because of this proximity, gravity from the star tugs much more at one side of a planet than the other, causing it to show the same face to its star throughout an orbit.

    On such a “tidally locked” planet, the side facing away from the star would never receive light and could be too cold for life, while the side facing it could be too hot. The areas where life might develop would be on the border – the zone experiencing a constant “sunrise” or “sunset”.

    “Work like this is important to inform our understanding of how life might evolve on the planets around other stars,” says Matt Burleigh at the University of Leicester, UK. “Oceanic tides may well be another factor that needs to be taken into account when speculating on life on planets around red dwarf stars like Proxima Centauri.”

    Algal signals

    Loeb and Lingam say these planets might be revealed to us through algal blooms that would change how the planet reflects its star’s light, in sync with the tides. But even if there is a signature there, seeing it might be tricky, says Jaymie Matthews at the University of British Columbia in Canada.

    “Even if tidal blooms in an alien ocean are more extensive than in Earth’s, they are unlikely to be global,” he says.

    “And they are not long-lasting, so the signature in the spectrum of exoplanet light will be diluted and intermittent.”

    Mass UFO sighting reported in Serbia. Video. 60924.jpeg

    In Serbia, a local resident made a video of unidentified flying objects in the sky over the city of Doni Milanovac.

    The video shows five bright UFOs lining up in triangles, changing the configuration and then disappearing. None of the objects looked like a star, and it is hard to ascribe the sighting to a natural phenomenon.

    Earlier, another UFO sighting was reported in the sky over Chile. A V-shaped unidentified flying object was hovering in the night sky. The strange phenomenon was noticed by Roberto Antezana.

    He is not the first to witness unusual manifestations from outer space. At first, the scientist decided that this was a Japanese satellite. However, the UFO was hovering in the sky for 35 minutes, which made the astrophysicist doubt its earthly origin. Inside the V-shaped nebula, there were other objects of unknown origin.

    Do you believe in little grey men?

    Blackpool is now a growing hub for those who want to believe, as a network for reported UFO sightings opens in the resort.

    Tim Bartrop, 52, founded the Lancashire UFO Sightings Network in his youth, and now hopes to revive the club to provide the people of Blackpool with a viable alternative to the Ministry Of Defence’s UFO desk, which closed down in 2009.

    He said: “The Ministry of Defence closed down its UFO service in 2009 and since then nobody has had anything to report UFO sightings to.

    “That’s why I have opened this up in Blackpool.”

    Tim, who lives off Central Drive, was inspired to form a group for believers to report their findings after his first and only encounter with the unexplained while growing up in Darnall, Sheffield.

    He said: “I decided to call for my best friend at the time , who lived three doors up from me.

    “As we were both star gazers we decided to go to the bottom of the street where the park is to get a better view of the sky above Darnall.

    Why looking for aliens is good for society (even if there aren't any)

    by Ian Crawford, The Conversation

    The search for life elsewhere in the universe is one of the most compelling aspects of modern science. Given its scientific importance, significant resources are devoted to this young science of astrobiology, ranging from rovers on Mars to telescopic observations of planets orbiting other stars.


    The holy grail of all this activity would be the actual discovery of , and such a discovery would likely have profound scientific and philosophical implications. But extraterrestrial life has not yet been discovered, and for all we know may not even exist. Fortunately, even if alien life is never discovered, all is not lost: simply searching for it will yield valuable benefits for society.

    Why is this the case?

    First, astrobiology is inherently multidisciplinary. To search for aliens requires a grasp of, at least, astronomy, biology, geology, and planetary science. Undergraduate courses in astrobiology need to cover elements of all these different disciplines, and postgraduate and postdoctoral astrobiology researchers likewise need to be familiar with most or all of them.

    By forcing multiple scientific disciplines to interact, astrobiology is stimulating a partial reunification of the sciences. It is helping to move 21st-century science away from the extreme specialisation of today and back towards the more interdisciplinary outlook that prevailed in earlier times.

    By producing broadminded scientists, familiar with multiple aspects of the natural world, the study of astrobiology therefore enriches the whole scientific enterprise. It is from this cross-fertilization of ideas that future discoveries may be expected, and such discoveries will comprise a permanent legacy of astrobiology, even if they do not include the discovery of alien life.

    It is also important to recognise that astrobiology is an incredibly open-ended endeavour. Searching for life in the universe takes us from extreme environments on Earth, to the plains and sub-surface of Mars, the icy satellites of the giant planets, and on to the all-but-infinite variety of planets orbiting other stars. And this search will continue regardless of whether life is actually discovered in any of these environments or not. The range of entirely novel environments opened to investigation will be essentially limitless, and so has the potential to be a never-ending source of scientific and intellectual stimulation.

    Beyond the more narrowly intellectual benefits of astrobiology are a range of wider societal benefits. These arise from the kinds of perspectives – cosmic in scale – that the study of astrobiology naturally promotes.

    It is simply not possible to consider searching for life on Mars, or on a planet orbiting a distant star, without moving away from the narrow Earth-centric perspectives that dominate the social and political lives of most people most of the time. Today, the Earth is faced with global challenges that can only be met by increased international cooperation. Yet around the world, nationalistic and religious ideologies are acting to fragment humanity. At such a time, the growth of a unifying cosmic perspective is potentially of enormous importance.

    In the early years of the space age, the then US ambassador to the United Nations, Adlai Stevenson, said of the world: "We can never again be a squabbling band of nations before the awful majesty of outer space." Unfortunately, this perspective is yet to sink deeply into the popular consciousness. On the other hand, the wide public interest in the search for life elsewhere means that astrobiology can act as a powerful educational vehicle for the popularisation of this perspective.

    Indeed, it is only by sending spacecraft out to explore the solar system, in large part for astrobiological purposes, that we can obtain images of our own planet that show it in its true cosmic setting.

    In addition, astrobiology provides an important evolutionary perspective on human affairs. It demands a sense of deep, or big, history. Because of this, many undergraduate astrobiology courses begin with an overview of the history of the universe. This begins with the Big Bang and moves successively through the origin of the chemical elements, the evolution of stars, galaxies, and planetary systems, the origin of , and evolutionary history from the first cells to complex animals such as ourselves. Deep history like this helps us locate human affairs in the vastness of time, and therefore complements the cosmic perspective provided by space exploration.

    Political implications

    There is a well-known aphorism, widely attributed to the Prussian naturalist Alexander von Humboldt, to the effect that "the most dangerous worldview is the worldview of those who have not viewed the world". Humboldt was presumably thinking about the mind-broadening potential of international travel. But familiarity with the cosmic and evolutionary perspectives provided by , powerfully reinforced by actual views of the Earth from space, can surely also act to broaden minds in such a way as to make the world less fragmented and dangerous.

    I think there is an important political implication inherent in this perspective: as an intelligent technological species, that now dominates the only known inhabited planet in the universe, humanity has a responsibility to develop international social and political institutions appropriate to managing the situation in which we find ourselves.

    In concluding his monumental Outline of History in 1925, HG Wells famously observed: "Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe." Such an observation appears especially germane to the geopolitical situation today, where apparently irrational decisions, often made by governments (and indeed by entire populations) seemingly ignorant of broader perspectives, may indeed lead our planet to catastrophe.

    The Search for Extraterrestrial Life

    Is there anybody out there? Is there life on other planets? If the answer is yes, and we can prove it, the physicist Jim Al-Khalili says that would be a revolutionary moment in science, up there with Copernicus proving that Earth is not the center of the universe. Considering the vastness of space, scientists mostly agree that somebody or something else is out there. Al-Khalili joins us Wednesday to explore where that life might be, what it might be like, and what would happen if we found it—or it found us.

    Jim Al-Khalili is a quantum physicist, author, and a TV and radio presenter based at the University of Surrey in England. In 2016, he received the inaugural Stephen Hawking Medal for Science Communication. He’s the author of several books, including Paradox: The Nine Greatest Enigmas in Physics an Life on the Edge: The Coming of Age of Quantum Biology.

    The case for UFOs in North Yorkshire

    When I first decided to take an active role in UFO research and investigation I consider myself very fortunate to join the Yorkshire UFO Society (YUFOS) which was formed in the early 1980’s by brothers Graham and Mark Birdsall. Many of you may well know that Graham went on to publish and edit the hugely successful newsstand publication UFO MAGAZINE.

    Graham and Mark were extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic and I leaned a lot from the both of them. I also consider it very fortunate that at the same time as joining YUFOS that we were literally swamped with UFO reports. In the early 1980’s we had more reports than we knew what to do with. A lot of these sightings came from areas in North Yorkshire and especially around the moors above the village of Carleton near Skipton.

    Much of our work and UFO case files from that era have been lost along the way but some information does still exist. In the early days of YUFOS we printed the small publication the YUFOS JOURNAL.  What I would like to do is to re-publish an article written by mark Birdsall which featured in the May 1983 YUFOS JOURNAL – VOLUME 2 Number 2.

    YUFOS Volume 1

    YUFOS Volume 1

    The Following article by Mark Birdsall shows exactly what I have been talking about and will hopefully give you some idea of what we were dealing with at the time.

    The Case For North Yorkshire:

    During the last 24 months we have received no fewer than 30 reports of unusual objects observed in North Yorkshire. We have on record, reports of objects coming within 50ft of experienced police officers. In fact we have been able to collect a number-of UFO reports, and build a careful picture of what is really happening in North Yorkshire. But first let us look at the information these cases contain. It is only fair to point out that a very large percentage .of sightings are made from experienced police officers. We have signed statements from many o£ the officers and all lead us to believe, that without a shadow of doubt, something unusual is taking place in and around the moors of North Yorkshire. However, through careful” research there are as many as 90% of the cases we cannot explain. We could state that it might have been a helicopter, or an aircraft. We cannot overlook who are making the observations.

    Every possible cause for the sighting of an UFO has to be examined. The area, the description, weather conditions etc.  But after researching all of these possibilities we cannot give a viable explanation. Many people then came forward to offer a possible answer. We again examined these, but even as objective researchers we must rule out these. For the reports we have, “contain diagrams and information, which if authentic (and we have no doubts that they are) leads .us to believe that, there is something highly unusual being observed in North Yorkshire. In fact there have been times when we have not been able to grasp the enormity of the situation we have found ourselves in. Is it coincidence that our only photographic evidence came from North Yorkshire, and as yet, has eluded all possible attempts by experts to conclude the photograph explainable hoax etc? Can we reach the position when we can confidently state, that all the information, statements, and photographic evidence is explainable; the answer must be NO.

    If we now turn to the collection of reports we have assembled for this publication. On the map, vie have eight positions o It would be impossible to print all our ·cases, so we have selected these complete with diagrams and drawings. The area is proximately 3 miles by 2. The prominent lines across the map are other sightings, relating to the direction in which these objects were seen.

    Sighting 1:

    The information behind this sighting has yet to be released, however. This particular object was observed by a policeman and a member of the public. At approximately 12.30am both people noticed a large ball of light moving very slowly in their direction. The object was slightly yellowish in colour and was approximately 500ft above the ground. At this moment both persons noticed an aircraft possibly 20,000ft heading in, and over the UFO. At this precise moment the object moved off its original course and after seemingly heading towards the witnesses, altered its course. The object was now parallel to the observers, and it was at this moment one of the witnesses trained his binoculars on the yellow mass. He could clearly see that the yellow ‘oval was in fact the front of a large cigar shape. A red light which had been hidden by the yellow glow was now defined through, use of the binoculars. It was on the side of the object, yet the witness mentioned the red light slowly moved closer to the main yellow light. One can note the comparison in size to the yellow light. Also note the dark area on the underside of the main body of the object. As the object moved slowly away from the witnesses, a ‘small band of yellow lights’ flashed across the centre of the object, giving the impression that the UFO was revolving.  The sighting lasted approximately 2 minutes.

    Sighting 2:

    This very detailed description was given, again by police officers from North Yorkshire. At approximately 5.20 am on Oct 24th, 1982, three police officers who had just 5 minutes earlier observed at close range an array of circular lights noticed a bright strip of light moving very close to the policemen’s original position. (The officers had tried to follow the circular of lights and had driven down the hill a few hundred yards). The object was crescent shaped, and although very bright it did not give off a beam. The UFO moved directly over the officers and one officer commented “it was so low you could have thrown a rock at it”.  The object was in fact, just 75-100ft above their heads. At this point the full, length of light intensified, but again did not give off a beam. There are two points to make note of at no time during the sighting was any sound a heard, and notably, an array of red and white lights was clearly around the perimeter (underside) of the object.

    Sighting 3:

    As mentioned in the last report (sighting 2), this particular sighting was made 5 minutes earlier than the object witnessed is sighting 2. However the officers did not see the UFO approach, nor did they hear any sound. One policeman just looked up into the dark sky and observed the lights slowly moving over their patrol car. The officers state the object was very low. Is it conceivable that the officers had made an error in their observation? Three men, so close to an object they could clearly define, the answer must again be no, even to more objective or sceptical researchers. We now turn our attention to a member of the public, who along with his family experienced a terrifying encounter.

    Sighting 4:

    Illustration of sighting by MODO.

    Illustration of sighting by MODO.

    Mr. X and his family were traveling along the road that leaves the village of Carlton near Skipton. The road rises up and over the moors near Elslack. The family were heading for the supermarket in Colne, a journey they made once a week. They had reached an are known as Standrise Plantation, Mr X then looked through his mirror and noticed 2 coloured balls of light (red & green) moving closer to the car. The balls then buzzed’ the family before moving level with the car. The balls then started to pace the car. The objects themselves were no larger than footballs and both were situated on either side of the car. They continued to fly alongside the car at window height. The occupants in the car became extremely frightened; Mr X was now finding it very hard to keep the car under control. Mrs X was shouting at her husband to turn the car round and return home. The two children were now screaming with fright, and their pet dog was cowering in the back seat. The dog then tried to get beneath the footwell in the car. Mr X had, had enough, he turned the car around and headed back home, the balls of light, also decided to turn around and follow the car. The lights again tracked the family for a short while, before disappearing. Mr X and his family returned home in a very poor state, and since the incident took place, they have not travelled along the moors again.

    They use a road which takes them around the area. This particular incident took place in March 1980, and again we cannot find a plausible explanation. The investigator of this case was Alwyn Rogers and he made an interesting comment when typing the report up. He pointed out that Mr X was finding it difficult to control his car was the caused by fright or outside interference? Most members will remember the encounter involving Mrs X, at Coniston Cutting, although the case has almost ended due to circumstances which we are not in the position to control. It is hoped that one day we will be able to start the case moving again. Due to the fact that every member has detailed knowledge of this case, I will just present the outlying factors. Mrs X was followed by a small cluster of lights, shortly after she had left her mothers home. Although she could not define the object which was following her, she was adamant it was not a vehicle. Although at first she mentioned in the report, ‘that she felt· the lorry was taking a long time to overtake her.’ The lights were pacing the car and then she noticed a beam of light strike the side of the car from above her. The incident occurred in March 1982, and as most members are aware our investigation led us to use hypnotic regression for the first ·time. Mrs X had lost approximately 40 minutes on her journey home from her mother’s house in Morecambe. During the investigation, many efforts were made to explain the missing minutes; as yet the loss of such a large amount of time remains a mystery, not only to us, but also to the witness.

    We are totally convinced that the initial report and information received is true, however we cannot possibly state that the information which we received .through the regression is fact. Again we have a case which involves a high degree of strangeness, and again in North Yorkshire.

    Sightings 5 & 6:

    Moving to sightings which most researchers would class as nocturnal lights. We have had no fewer than 60 reports of these objects. And I stress the word object. For I myself have observed them on no fewer than three occasions. These objects are quite clearly oval and circular depending on the angle they are viewed at. A number of investigators have seen these particular objects at close range. Sceptics pour .scorn on these sightings and declare them nothing more than· helicopters or aircraft. I agree that probably a number of sightings are explainable. But through careful research we find that on no occasion has any sound ever been heard, and also the majority of these objects are traveling just 400 feet above the ground. Many of the witnesses state that the object seemed to be following the contours of the moors.

    Carleton moors.

    Carleton moors.

    Would it be conceivable to find aircraft flying at such a dangerous height? One must also note the speed of these objects, most observers’ state that they were traveling at speeds of no more than 40 – 50 mph. One interesting case involving one of these objects occurred in November last year. Two witnesses were on moors near Carlton, when they noticed a bright yellow light moving slowly over the hills. The approximate height of the object was 400ft. Both witnesses then observed an aeroplane heading towards the object (20,000ft). The object then changed course and moved behind a nearby hill. The witnesses watched the aeroplane move quickly out of sight. They were then amazed to see the yellow ball of light move from behind the hillside and continue its silent journey across the moors. These particular sightings are difficult to assess, and the in formation which they contain is limited. A comment by the witnesses who see these objects repeats it’ self throughout the statements made by the witnesses, this is, that on· no occasion did the observer see any other lights. Or in fact a solid body beneath the· glow however if we return to object one on the diagrams, the witnesses state that until they observed the object with binoculars they could see only the brilliant yellow glow. It would seem that the intense light .of the object distorted the actual shape; however this all remains conjecture at the moment.

    Sighting 7:

    Illustration of sighting by MODO.

    Illustration of sighting by MODO.

    One of the most spectacular sightings we have on record is this observation made by two North Yorkshire police officers. This sighting occurred on the moors just East of Cononley. The time was 3.20 am when both officers noticed an extremely bright light moving directly towards their position. No definition could be seen and the UFO moved directly over their position. The height of the object was approximately 200ft it was then that the object turned slightly to one side· (tilted). The officers were startled with regard to the actual shape and size of the object. Both· men estimated the length of the object to be approximately 100ft. The entire object was glowing and the lower ‘skirt’ was revolving. Three large balls on the underside could clearly be seen. ‘Portholes’ which were darker than the rest of the object were also seen. From an objective point of view, this case is almost too good to believe. But we have no doubts whatsoever regarding the information in this report, that the officers did in fact observe an unusual craft. It would be difficult not to relate such a ·detailed account if the object passed over your head at just 200feet. Many similarities have been made with the ‘Adamski’ photographs; however the witnesses state the object they observed appeared more streamlined than the alleged photographs taken by George Adamski. In any event, serious investigators do· not lay much foundation with regard to Adamski ‘s claims. However; critics would find it very difficult to try and explain to the officers involved with this sighting, that what they had observed was an IFO.

    Sighting 8:

    Illustration of sighting by MODO.

    Illustration of sighting by MODO.

    One of the most famous UFO cases in Britain was the Livingston close encounter, in Scotland. The witness (Robert Taylor) was apparently ‘attacked’ by two circular spiked objects. These small objects have led researchers to drawn up similarities with this sighting and the Livingstone incident. Three witnesses observed a small object zig – zagging across Elslack Moor. A series of rods and white lights could. Be seen revolving around the small body of the 0bject. It was approximately 4ft above the ground. They then noticed a beam of light being emitted from the underside directly onto the ground. At one point the object came within 50ft of the witnesses. Due to the circumstances which were about to follow we feel this object was in some way connected to the objects which were observed a few minutes later. We did send a ground team to the area, and one or two marks were noticed, but it would be difficult to relate them to this sighting. All we can say is that they were quite similar to marks found in the ground with regard to the Livingston case.

    Illustration of sighting by MODO.

    In this study we have just scraped the surface on the information which our case files contain. But our attention has been drawn to the area, not just because of the amount of sightings, but also the high strangeness of the cases.

    END

    I have to say that I personally remember many of these sightings being reported to us at YUFOS and I also participated in the research and investigation of some of them. There is no doubt in my mind that many of them still remain unexplained. Carlton moor and surrounding areas near Skipton in North Yorkshire was a hot bed for UFO sightings. In those days it was termed a ‘window area’ while today you might call it a ‘portal’. I prefer window area personally. Our research also uncovered UFO sighting in the area going back decades so one this was for sure and that was that the wave of sightings in the area in the 1980’s was nothing new.

    wb BATLEY NEWS with Phil April 4 1985

    To be actively involved in UFO investigations during this time period was the ideal apprenticeship for any would-b UFO enthusiast and I consider myself to be very fortunate to have been there at the time. There was a period that we had more sightings reported that we could handle.

    Of course all things must come to an end and YUFOS did but Graham went on with his brother Mark to publish UFO MAGAZINE and stage many highly successful UFO conference the like of which have not been seen again since Graham’s untimely death. I just hope I’m still around when the next ‘flap’ occurs around the moors above Skipton as I am in no doubt it will happen one day.

    Witness says cloaking ‘UFO’ had USAF insignia

    A California witness at Moorpark reported watching an odd object with cloaking abilities with the words “USAF 003” on its tail stabilizer, according to testimony in Case 84601 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

    The witness was sitting in a restaurant drive-thru lane at 11:24 a.m. on June 25, 2017, when the incident occurred.

    “Looking right at it, my eyes hurt to look at it,” the witness stated. “It is using some kind of neural confusion. It was like trying to look at a needle coming at your eye. It gave off some type of electrical interference, and seemed to rotate radially even though it was stationary. It looked big enough to hold one or two people.”

    But the witness stated that there were letters and numbers on the object that were readable.

    “I could see very clearly on the tail stabilizer, USAF 003, in white paint. There were bright, silver fixtures and they had solid beacon lights that were white. The tail moved independent of the fuselage. There was a cockpit windscreen/canopy. It was non-reflective, silver material, that had a very odd indentation. It looked like a cookie sheet with a larger section around it to extend it, like a top hat.”

    The witness seemed to think that the object was cloaking itself.

    “The electrical interference seemed to pick up. It disturbed another one just like it in formation next to it and I could see an illusion effect and then nothing as the cloak reengaged and they were gone. There was an inaudible, pulse-like concussion as well. I said, ‘holy (blank)’ and it went over the microphone to the drive-thru guy, and he said, ‘hold on.’ And it definitely changed the electromagnetism around us. Something felt off. The air was empty. It felt like a rug had been pulled out from underneath the air. It’s hard to explain. They were about 400 feet above the 118 overpass in Moorpark, California. I swear by this statement and its truth. The metal looked old, and was matte-like. It did not pick up light like high gloss paint. I’ve been going through books since I came home. It’s good to know it’s us that has this stuff.”

    Cracking The Mystery Of The ‘Worldwide Hum’

    THE AUTHOR BEGAN HEARING THE SOUND AT NIGHT, BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 10 AND 11 P.M. 'STREET' VIA WWW.SHUTTERSTOCK.COM
    In the spring of 2012, en I was living near the coastal village of Sechelt, on British Columbia’s picturesque Sunshine Coast, I began hearing a humming sound, which I thought were float planes.

    The noise usually started later at night, between 10 and 11 p.m. My first clue that something unusual was happening came with the realization that the sound didn’t fade away, like plane noises typically do. And the slightest ambient noise – exhaling audibly, even turning my head quickly – caused it to momentarily stop. One night after the sound started I stepped outside the house. Nothing.

    I was the only person in the house who could hear it; my family said they didn’t know what I was talking about.

    Naturally, I assumed something in the house was the culprit, and I searched for the source in vain. I even ended up cutting the power to the entire house. The sound got louder.

    While I couldn’t hear the sound outdoors, I could still hear it in my car at night with the windows closed and the ignition off. I drove for miles in every direction, and it was still there in the background when I stopped the car. I was able to rule out obvious sources: industrial activity, marine traffic, electric substations and highway noise.

    When I searched on the internet for “unusual low-frequency humming noise,” I soon realized that others had conducted the same search. I was part of the small fraction of people who can hear what is called the “Worldwide Hum” or, simply, the “Hum.”

    A really, really, big hummingbird? 

    Keneva Photography/Shutterstock

    The questions motivating me and thousands of others were the same: “What’s causing this? Can it be stopped?”

    One Geoscientist’s Theory

    The classic description of the Hum is that it sounds like a truck engine idling. For some, it’s a distant rumbling or droning noise. It can start and stop suddenly or wax and wane over time. For others, the Hum is loud, relentless and life-altering.

    I eventually came across one of the few serious papers on the topic. It was written in 2004 by geoscientist David Deming (who’s also a Hum hearer).

    Deming began by describing the standard history: The Hum was first documented in the late 1960s, around Bristol, England. It first appeared in the United States in the late 1980s, in Taos, New Mexico.

    He then examined the competing hypotheses for the source of the Hum. Many have pointed to the electric grid or cellphone towers. But this theory is dismissed on two grounds: cellphones didn’t exist in the 1960s, and the frequency emitted by both cell towers and the electric grid can be easily blocked by metal enclosures.

    He wondered whether mass hysteria was to blame, a psychological phenomenon in which rumor and “collective delusions” lead to the appearance of physical ailments for which there’s no medical explanation. The fact that so many people have researched the Hum on their own, using a search engine – rather than hearing about it from some other person – moves the conversation away from delusion and hysteria spread by word of mouth.

    Some have dismissed cellphone towers as a potential source. 

    'Cell Towers' via www.shutterstock.com

    Deming looked at the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), an isolated military compound in Alaska that uses radio waves to study outer space and for testing advanced communication techniques – and a favorite focus of conspiracy theorists, who have accused the facility of acts ranging from mind control to weather control. He studied the possibility of otoacoustic emissions, which are naturally occurring sounds caused by the vibration of hair cells in the ear.

    Deming eventually fingered Very Low Frequency (VLF) radio waves (between 3 kHz and 30 kHz) as the most likely culprit. The world’s military powers use massive land-based and airborne transmitters on these frequencies in order to communicate with submerged submarines. Radio waves at these frequencies can penetrate up to a solid inch of aluminum.

    In the paper, Deming proposes a simple and elegant experiment for testing this hypothesis. Hum hearers randomly enter three identical-looking boxes. The first box blocks VLF radio signals, the second box is an anechoic (soundproof) chamber and the third box is the control.

    He left the experiment for others to pursue, and while there are some practical difficulties with the design, Deming’s overall concept has motivated the experiments I am currently conducting.

    A Disciplined Inquiry Begins

    A plethora of pseudoscience and wild conspiracy theories has the potential to drown out the serious work in this area. I’ve encountered seemingly serious people who have argued that the Hum is caused by tunneling under the earth, the electronic targeting of specific individuals, aliens and mating fish.

    Aliens, obviously. 

    Esteban De Armas/Shutterstock

    Given the need for disciplined inquiry into the phenomenon, in late 2012 I started The World Hum Map and Database Project. The database gathers, documents and maps detailed and anonymous information from people who can hear the Hum. It provides raw data for research in a strictly moderated and serious forum for research and commentary, while providing a sense of community for people whose lives have been negatively affected by the Hum.

    Most people have some experience with how disruptive some types of noises can be, which is why there are often noise ordinances in many cities and towns, especially at night. There are many sufferers who dread the nighttime because of how loud and relentless the Hum can be. The Hum database is replete with descriptions of desperate people who have been tormented by the noise for years. The phrase “driving me crazy” is all too common. (I feel fortunate that, in my case, the Hum is more of a curiosity than it is an irritant.)

    The project also aims to validate and normalize the phenomenon by discussing it alongside other widely reported auditory phenomena, such as tinnitus, a relatively common medical condition that causes people to hear high-pitched squealing tones. Those who experience tinnitus and also the Hum report the two as being completely different in character.

    The latest update of the Hum Map, from June 6, presents roughly 10,000 map and data points, and we’ve already made some notable findings.

    For example, we’ve found that the mean and median age of Hum hearers is 40.5 years, and 55 percent of hearers are men. This goes against the widely repeated theory that the Hum mainly affects middle-aged and older women.

    Interestingly, there are eight times as many ambidextrous people among hearers as there are in the general population. As more data are collected from Hum hearers, I hope that specialists in demographics and inferential statistics will be able to generate more detailed results.

    The Goals Of The Research

    The historical record of the Hum is crucial, because if the current version as narrated by Deming is correct, many theories can immediately be ruled out. After all, cellphones and HAARP didn’t exist until decades after the Worldwide Hum was first documented in England in the late 1960s. I currently have a researcher digging into the Times of London digital archive to search for mentions of the Hum going back to the 18th and 19th centuries. If convincing examples are found, then the direction of my research will shift dramatically because all modern technologies could be ruled out.

    In my view, there are currently four hypotheses for the source of the world Hum that survive the most superficial scrutiny.

    The first hypothesis – argued by Deming and the one I’m currently pursuing – is that the Hum is rooted in Very Low Frequency (VLF) radio transmissions. It’s increasingly accepted now that the human body will sometimes experience electromagnetic (EM) energy and interpret it in a way that creates sounds. This was established for high-frequency EM energy by the American neuroscientist Alan Frey in his infamous “microwave hearing” experiments, which showed that certain radio frequencies can actually be heard as sounds.

    Today, there are biophysical models that predict and explain the impact VLF EM energy has on living tissue. I have designed and built a VLF radio blocking box that should be able to test whether VLF radio frequencies are a prerequisite for generating the Hum.

    The second hypothesis is that the Hum is the grand accumulation of low-frequency sound and human-generated infrasound (sounds with audio frequencies below roughly 20 Hz and which can be felt more than they can be heard). This includes everything from highway noise to all manner of industrial activity.

    The third is that the Hum is a terrestrial or geological phenomenon that generates low-frequency sounds or perceptions of those sounds. For example, there is a well-documented history of animals predicting earthquakes and taking action to save themselves. From an evolutionary perspective, there may be survival value in having members of a population highly sensitive to some types of vibrations. When it comes to the Hum, some humans may have a similar physiological mechanism in place.

    The fourth is that the Hum is an internally generated phenomenon, perhaps rooted in a particular anatomical variation, genetic predisposition or the result of toxicity and medication.

    The Hum is now the subject of serious media coverage and, increasingly, scientific scrutiny. The overall goal of my project and the people who contribute to it is to find the source of the Hum and, if possible, stop it.

    If the Hum is man-made, then my task is to raise public awareness and advocate turning away from the technologies that are causing it. If the source is exogenous and natural, there’s the possibility that there may be no escape from it, apart from masking it with background sounds.

    Of course there is the remote possibility that one of the more exotic explanations will prove to be correct. But, as in all science, it seems best to start with what we know and is plausible, as opposed to what we don’t know and is implausible.

    The Mystery of the Worldwide Hum

    Our world is a noisy place. Everywhere we go there is a veritable cacophony of noise pervading our surroundings, ranging from the sound of civilization, with its factories, construction, airplanes, and myriad vehicles with their roaring engines and speaking their language of honks and beeps, to the natural sounds of the wind, animals, and the earth’s various activities. Even in the realm of things we cannot physically hear there is noise, with the atmosphere saturated by all manner of low-frequency sounds both artificial and natural, as well as the countless waves and transmissions that give us our radio, TV shows, satellite information, and cell phone usage. Yet even beyond this there seems to be something more creeping about in the background, some ill-defined and persistent noise that only some can hear and which remains unexplained.

    What has come to be mostly referred to as simply “The Hum,” or sometimes “The Worldwide Hum,” is a blanket term for a series of mysterious, inexplicable auditory phenomena that has emerged all across the world, and which typically entails a low frequency, persistent bass droning or rumbling noise, heard both indoors and outdoors and with no readily identifiable source or origin. It has been described as sounding like different things by different people, but a common description is that it sounds rather like an idling truck or industrial fan, and can vary in intensity from a general low bass background grumble to an invasive, ear piercing symphony of noise, depending on the person and location. This hum is most typically reported from rural or sparsely populated areas, but not always, and it is usually most noticeable in the evening hours, although this also depends on the person hearing it.

    It is difficult to track down just when the phenomenon started, but it has apparently been around since at least the 1940s, when hundreds of people in the London and Southampton areas of Great Britain complained of a noticeable drone, and probably since much earlier. The 1950s and 1960s also saw the hum become widely publicized in the news and entering the public consciousness with various other reports from all over Great Britain, and in the 1970s there was a veritable media circus over the odd, persistent sound in Bristol, England, where complaints flooded in when many residents reported hearing it. The phenomenon would continue in Great Britain into the 1980s, where it was widely heard by residents in Largs, Scotland, a coastal town about 31 km west of Glasgow.

    The Hum made perhaps its most famous debut in North America in 1992, when people in and around the town of Taos, New Mexico, began to report the sound, which has since become known as the “Taos Hum” and is probably the most well-known location for the phenomenon. The Hum also appeared in the United States in Kokomo, Indiana, in 1999, where it seems to have had a particularly potent effect, allegedly causing various negative physical symptoms such as headaches, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, and joint pain, to the point that many who heard it purportedly moved away to escape it. An in-depth investigation into the source of the Kokomo Hum by the Board of Public Works and Safety could not determine exactly what caused it. In the years since, the Hum has gone on to be reported from numerous other locations from all over the world, in such far-flung places as Italy, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Mexico, among others, to the point where an attempt to chart the phenomena, called The World Hum Database and Mapping Project, was launched in 2012, containing a huge database of hum reports and locations all over the planet.

    The hum phenomenon cannot be heard by everyone, and it has been estimated through studies in the U.S. and Great Britain that only about 2 percent of the population are actually susceptible to it, both male and female and usually those of middle age or older. For those who do hear it, often referred to as “Hummers,” the description of the hum is often very similar, and it is claimed that earplugs do nothing to stop the relentless drone or reduce its volume in any way. Although the description of the sound itself is mostly consistent, the situations in which these people can hear the sound can vary, for instance with some hearing it more often indoors while others are more prone to picking it up outdoors, and some hearing it more at night while others are affected only during the day. The volume and intensity of the Hum can vary between individuals as well, with some only faintly picking it up as an annoying but harmless static of sorts, while for others it can be absolutely blaring and some even reporting feeling it vibrate through their bodies or homes.

    For the people who are very sensitive to the noise, it can supposedly be a deeply unsettling, life-altering experience; a nightmare in a sense. It can apparently cause a wealth of symptoms, ranging from ear pain, headaches, nosebleeds, and nausea, to more debilitating problems such as fainting or chronic pain in various parts of the body. It also allegedly alters emotional states, causes memory loss, impaired speech, and diminishes overall energy levels. The Hum has caused people to do drastic things, like sell their homes and move away, quit their jobs, spiral into depression, and in some extreme cases has even driven people to suicide. One sufferer named Hugh Witherington began to hear the Hum upon moving away from his home of London, England, to the quiet countryside of Hertfordshire, and has been continuously terrorized by it ever since, explaining it thus:

    It sounded like a lorry had stopped outside my window and left its engine idling. No amount of exposure ever gets me used to it. It stops me from thinking, even now. I cannot accept it.

    Another example of a sufferer whose life has been deeply affected by The Hum, 46-year-old Rosemarie Mann, of Romsey, England, claims that she is so plagued by the potent and nonstop noise that it has profoundly changed her life in the worst of ways. She says that it had dragged her down into depression, for which she now takes medication, diminished her will to live, and has strained her marriage. It is something she has to wrestle with every day, and she has said of the harrowing experience:

    I can only describe it as a kind of torture. For the first few years I lost sleep, couldn’t concentrate and was unable to do anything. I was constantly in tears, which put a great strain on my husband. It has changed me from an active, creative person to a stifled, angry pessimist. The Hum still has a terrible draining effect. It is the invasiveness and relentlessness of the noise and having no understanding or control of it which makes it so distressing.

    There have been numerous theories on what The Hum could be, ranging from the rational to the truly outlandish. One of the simplest explanations that has been offered is that these people are suffering from a fairly common condition called tinnitus, which is a perceived noise or ringing in the ears with no external cause and which can be caused by factors as varied as noise induced deafness, ear infections, head injuries, or mental conditions such as emotional stress or depression. The problem with this is that Hummers are adamant that the noise is produced externally, also saying that it is a much different sound than tinnitus, and furthermore the hum seems to be generally heard in clusters tied to certain locations.

    Similar to this theory is that The Hum could be the result of various internal physical or mental causes which are causing some sort of auditory hallucinations, or perhaps it is caused by medication or toxins. The hum has also been speculated to perhaps be the result of sudden noises generated by our own inner ears, called “spontaneous otoacoustic emissions.” It has also been suggested that the hum is merely all in these people’s heads and that it is a combination of over-imagining and mass hysteria or mass delusion fueled by the Internet. In this scenario, these people are just imagining it all, or are having their senses and perceptions colored by what they have read about the mysterious Worldwide Hum.

    There is also the widespread idea that The Hum is caused by some mechanical source, such as cooling towers, industrial plants, ventilator fans, generators, and so on. While this may be true in some cases, and has even been shown as such in some instances, in others The Hum has persisted even when such factors were eliminated, and additionally in many cases the sound has not been successfully tracked down to any particular mechanical source. Another manmade potential cause for The Hum put forward has been electrical grids or cell phone towers, but even if these are the origin in some more modern cases, cell towers were not around when the hum phenomenon started taking off. Also, even if the cause is somehow mechanical in nature it still does not explain why only a small percentage of human beings even seem to be affected by the hum, and to varying degrees.

    Very Low Frequency (VLF) radio transmissions (between 3 kHz and 30 kHz), could also be the answer to the phenomenon, especially as it has been surmised that the human body can sometimes register electromagnetic waves as actual sounds. It could also be the result of any number of low or ultra-low frequency sounds or infrasound, those just on the threshold of human hearing, either human generated or by natural phenomena such as earthquakes or other seismic activity, and volcanic or tectonic plate activity, as well as pressure waves reverberating across the seafloor. Another natural source that has been proposed is that the sound is caused by the mating calls of certain species of fish, but in most cases any significant drone caused by this requires a boat hull to amplify it, and it has been argued that these sounds on their own would be insufficient to be a convincing candidate. With any of these explanations, we are still faced with the apparent fact that only some people can hear it.

    If there is such a mundane cause for The Hum, then it seems fairly clear that whatever it is mostly likely stems from a combination of all of these, depending on the person, place, and the situation, with no one theory fitting every case. Of course with a phenomenon as mysterious and still largely unexplained as The Hum, there are certainly more far-out theories floating around as well. For some The Hum is indicative of a deep dark, government conspiracy complete with secret, shadowy experiments, mind-control devices, and cover-ups. Some have suggested that it is even a secret weapon utilizing focused ultra-low frequency waves and perched upon a satellite, which can beam down to target individuals or groups of people. For others it is the result of someone or something tunneling through the earth. There are also, of course, aliens. Why not? Still others claim that this is just something that originates in forces that currently lie outside of our understanding, but which we may someday fathom.

    One of the problems posing an obstacle to coming to any real answers with the Worldwide Hum is that there have only been a handful of people who have ever tried to seriously study it, and those who have claimed to have experienced it are still largely dismissed and thought to be just “hearing things,” even as the number of reports and complaints from such people has been steadily increasing in recent years. Those who have looked into the problem with open eyes have been unable to come to a clear conclusion that can totally explain the breadth of the phenomenon. They simply don’t know what causes it or why it happens. It seems to be for now a strange phenomenon that is doomed to be just an anomaly that we may never fully understand, and that those who hear it will most likely just have to deal with it, to live with the incessant drone echoing through their head, possibly without ever knowing just exactly what it is they are hearing.

    What is at the heart of the Worldwide Hum phenomena? Is this the result of artificial or natural frequencies or phenomena that some people are just more inclined to be sensitive to, or maybe some effect that we have yet to come to a clear understanding of? Is it some sort of radio waves or electromagnetic or sonic interference? Is it secret government experiments or weapons, aliens, or something more paranormal in nature? Perhaps at some point we will have more of an idea of what lies behind this strange background noise that seems to permeate some locations throughout the world and unravel its mysteries, but until then it will rumble on with its origin and purpose unknown.

    BOER UIT ARIZONA, USA, IN HEFTIGE STRIJD GEWIKKELD MET GRAY ALIENS ( VIDEO )

    Op een grote ranch in Arizona ziet men aliens liever gaan dan komen, want de ervaringen die men daar tot nu toe heeft met deze entiteiten zijn niet echt prettig. 

    Boer John Edmonds heeft genoeg van deze wezens die zijn dieren aanvallen en verwonden en gaat ze te lijf met een Samoerai zwaard. 



    Via een lezer (dank!) werden wij opmerkzaam gemaakt op een bijzonder verhaal. 

    Het begint bij een interview in 2015 van Project Camelot met een boer uit Arizona, John Edmonds. 

    In dat gesprek claimt John dat zijn ranch in Rainbow Valley waar hij met zijn vrouw woont, is geïnfiltreerd door Gray aliens. Deze vallen zijn dieren aan en richten nog meer ander kwaad ook aan. Edmonds zegt dat hij acht van die Grays heeft gedood door hen te doorboren met een Samoerai zwaard. Wanneer hij ze doorsteekt met dat zwaard, dan verdwijnen ze, dus wordt het een moeilijke zaak om te bewijzen dat hij deze Gray’s heeft gedood. Wel zegt hij te beschikken over hun lichaamsvloeistoffen en heeft deze laten onderzoeken. Daaruit blijkt ontegenzeggelijk dat ze “niet van deze wereld zijn” en niet menselijk. 

    In de volgende video de hoogtepunten uit dat eerste interview dat in totaal ongeveer twee en een half uur in beslag nam. 

     

    Vrij snel na dit interview kwam er een update op de site van Project Camelot met enkele foto’s die zouden zijn genomen op de ranch van Edmonds. 

    Deze zegt dat degene die de foto’s heeft genomen honderd procent betrouwbaar is en dat de beelden echt zijn. Hij zegt verder niet te weten of deze Gray’s daar echt rondliepen op dat moment of dat het een soort hologrammen waren omdat hij daar op de ranch acht van hen heeft gedood. 

    Hoe dan ook, de foto’s zijn echt.

    Tijdens een ander interview enige tijd later gebeurde er ook iets bijzonders zoals te zien in de volgende korte clip. 

    John Edmonds zit voor de camera te praten via Skype, terwijl er een Gray om de hoek komt kijken. 

     

    Kerry Cassidy van Project Camelot vond het verhaal dermate interessant dat ze besloot om zelf een bezoek te brengen aan de ranch. 

    Tijdens dat bezoek filmde de crew de volgende UFO boven de ranch.

    Two Large UFOs Spotted In The Sky Over Chelmsford

    Chelmsford-UFO

    A man claimed to have spotted two large UFOs in the sky above Chelmsford. The unnamed resident allegedly saw the objects over Manor Road where he resides on Monday afternoon, July 17.

    According to the witness, the two UFOs were in different shapes, which were first spotted by a group of people outside the city centre. The reporting witness said he saw a small group of passersby looking up in the sky from his garden. He also looked up and saw two large objects in the air.

    The UFOs were reportedly black underneath and quite big and high up. They were allegedly kind of rolling over and over in the air.

    The reporting witness first thought they were giant balloons, but later realised that they should not move like the UFOs. His second thought was bits of plastic, but the UFOs were moving faster than the wind. He stated that one of the strange objects was a cylinder shape and the other one was longer. He also did not think that they were aeroplanes.

    The witness rushed inside to get his camera, but when he came back outside, the UFOs had moved further away, but he still managed to get a few snaps.

    The witness added that the two mysterious aerial objects appeared to be nearly linked together as they kept at around the same distance apart the entire time.

    The witness watched them moved into the distance towards the cricket ground and lost sight of them.

    The Government Cover Up Case: UFO Disabled 10 US Nukes in Silos

    Fifty years of fabricated alien sightings faked cover-ups, and false alien abductions have discredited the aliens in the individuals’ mind, to the extent that when the real ones appear, may be neglected. In fact, the brainwashing activity of the masses was so successful that if an actual alien spacecraft were to come forward, and then hover directly on top of the skies, they would succeed in explaining it as a secret experiment or any other usual objects.

    In past times, people were burned at stake for merely believing in the existence of extraterrestrial life. Today, there seems to be less burning at stake, but other than that, nothing has significantly changed. Then, as now, extraterrestrial intelligence remains an obstacle for war-minded humans. It is normal for the US government to take measures in protecting its military activities from all harm.

    David D Schindele

    A former US Air Force captain revealed an extraordinary alien incident allegedly involving the destruction of the nuclear weapons. Captain David D Schindele used to be a Minuteman I intercontinental ballistic missile launch crew commander working in the Minot Air Force Base missile field situated in North Dakota. The incident took place in December 1996 when he was at the launch control facility. He claims that extraterrestrials destroyed ten nuclear missiles, making them useless in the facility. He was in charge of the nuclear weapons. Days after the incident, it was reported that UFOs are seen in the area. Unfortunately, air force officials ordered him to mum about the incident, and beg to erase the incident from his memory.

    He admitted that many of his colleagues experienced unearthly incidents at the Minuteman facilities, but they were all instructed to keep silent. He then decided to write a book after hearing similar incident encountered by another missileer. The rationale behind his exposure is the idea that there can be no moral, ethical, or crucial reason to keep the happening a secret from humankind.

    His book is available at Amazon.com, and the proceeds will go to the Seattle Chapter of the Air Force Association.

    Alaska UFO Encounter

     Veteran Japan Airlines 747 Capt. Kenju Terauchi reported a spectacular prolonged encounter over Alaska in 1986. “Most unexpectedly, two space ships stopped in front of our face, shooting off lights,” he said. “The inside cockpit shined brightly and I felt warm in the face.” Despite the Federal Aviation Administration’s determination, that he and his crew were stable, competent and professional, he was grounded for speaking out. Several radar stations in Alaska confirmed the sighting. Captain Terauchi the pilot of the JAL 747 was featured on numerous radio and TV programs and in People Magazine. Within a few months of these events, he was grounded although retained by the airline, apparently for his indiscretion of reporting a UFO, even though he was a senior captain with an excellent flying record.

     John Callahan, former division chief of the Accidents and Investigations Branch of the FAA, reported on FAA documentation and subsequent CIA suppression of the Terauchi encounter over Alaska. I and 20 other government and military witnesses at a National Press Club briefing to challenge official secrecy about this subject joined Callahan.

    John Callahan states, “I was the Division Chief of the Accidents and Investigations Branch of the FAA in Washington DC for six years. This particular incident started with a phone call from the people in Alaska who said, “Well, it’s that UFO. That was bouncing around the 747 here”…FAA Administrator, Admiral Engen, told me to attend a briefing the next day where the FBI, CIA, President Reagan’s Scientific Study Team, as well as others attended. When we gave the presentation to the Reagan staff, they had all those people swear that this never happened. I have been involved in many cover-ups with the FAA, but they never had me swear it never happened….

     For those people who say that if these UFOs existed, they would someday be on radar and that there’d be professionals who would see it, and then I can tell them that back in 1986, there were enough professional people that saw it. I’ve got a videotape. I have the voice tape. And, I have the reports that were filed that will confirm what I’ve been telling you. In 1986, a huge UFO followed Japanese Airlines 747 flight for 31 minutes over the Alaskan skies. The UFO also trailed a United Airlines flight until the flight landed. There was visual confirmation as well as airborne and ground-based radar confirmation.” Thanks to the Disclosure Project

    UFO the Greatest Story Ever Denied with Study of Alternative Realities (SOAR)

    This stunning film documentary is 1 3/4 hours. The official denial and the ridicule began in 1942 with the Battle of Los Angeles, where a UFO was fired upon by our military that could not bring it down. This excellent Jose Escamilla film brings an end to over sixty years of official denial.

    Somewhere in the back of your mind, you’ve always known it was true. Special Features: Trevor James Constable – Critter footage that has never been released for over fifty years that reveals entities that exist in the invisible Ultra-Violet spectrum. UFOs are not at all extraterrestrial spacecraft but animals comparable to giant amoeba or “critters” that “are built of matter of the etheric plane” or “plasmatic” and live in the skies of our planets. This was first proposed as a mere possibility by Charles Fort, but Constable went further by claiming that he had photographed these “sky animals” – flying among the “usual” flying saucers – using infrared film, exposed between dawn and sunrise in high, in “dry locales” that “will frequently objectify invisible objects of various kinds living in and passing through the atmosphere.”

    Image Tampering – Learn what to look for and where to find structures on the Moon and Mars that have been hidden from you through deliberate tampering by NASA.

    Joe Foster writes, I can tell you a little something about this Disney movie from a personal perspective. I worked for a defense contractor that had one of the astronauts from STS-48 as its President and COO. This company was Air Force centric and was headquarted in Dayton, Ohio.

    At minute 21 of the video, there are two short clips showing crew members getting ready to video “objects” viewed from shuttle windows in this now famous STS-48 mission (UFO video). The interesting thing about this particular video is that it corroborates something that was told to me by one of the astronauts in those clips (Col Mark Brown (USAF Ret).



    He said, “There were “objects” (multiple) and the sighting(s) took place over a 20minute period”. The astronaut who mentioned this to me was the one with the large camera on his shoulder. He also mentioned that what was shown in the original video was not “frozen condensate droplets caught in the wash of one of the shuttle’s thrusters” (story NASA still clings to ). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Go9J3NbB6z8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUiA2k54_NY

    Manta Ray Sounds

    Dr. Bruce Cornet has just published another 22 minute video, this time on the various sounds the Manta Ray mystery craft produced during my 11 years of UFO investigation in the Wallkill River Valley between 1992 and 2003.  During this field work I recorded on time exposure, video, and audio, with magnetometer readings, 23 sightings, giving me a range of flight patterns and performance capability.  One thing is very clear: This craft is a flying projection platform that can produce various types of sounds, change sounds in passing, and travel silently. It can hover and defy gravity.  It can project different types of images to different people on the ground, even people standing only three feet apart. That discovery was made during The Experiment, a website describing where the Manta Ray cooperated with John and me to answer my question of why Dr. Ellen Crystall and I were getting time exposures with slight but significant differences in light traces.  Our photographs should have been identical.

    During that period I was also given three holographic projections coming from a ship in the immediate area: A golden pyramid with a splay of light coming up through it (pyramid means light in middle); a holographic display or a vortex or solar system with binary suns (subject of a History Channel documentary in March 2008); and a green round temple positioned over a corn field with a golden light of another UFO above it (CORN ET). These projections are further proof of the purpose for and design of this craft as a magical flying projection machine, consistent with the investigations and findings of others such as Dr. Jacques Vallee in Messengers of Deception.

    Dr. Bruce Cornet has sent some interesting sounds of craft he recorded over New York and New Jersey.

    White Eagle  writes

    Regarding your audio recordings, C-5 and /or other heavy lifter turbine whine sound harmonics on most there. No fighter jet or afterburner running sounds. Sound of commercial type for last ‘Manta’. Is Interesting, especially the spotter type light rigging. Do any of the nearby bases or airports have a CIA or other experimental/intelligence gathering type unit based at them?   And I would get ‘de-tagged’ if I were you. Thanks to White Eagle

    From a New Paltz, NY, resident: Then you must be familiar with the underground hangers as well. My uncle
    worked at Stewart Air Force base from the early 60’s until the early ’80’s. He told me that it was to support Air Force aircraft. I never really knew of too many other people who really knew about this base. I know that as late as the early ’90’s it was a training ground for West Point and I believe the FBI trained there as well, but I
    always had my suspicions of what they were really doing out there and if those hangers were still in use. I have not spoken with my uncle in years about this place and have not en really thought about it until I saw your
    web site. Regards, Eagle

    You can mention the now defunct Special Operations airbase west of Stewart AFB, and give two links to a web

    Thanks Bruce

    Mars Dome

    An anomaly hunter studying NASA satellite images of Mars believes he may have found a pair of ancient structures on the Red Planet.

    In a posting on YouTube which showcases the possible find, UK researcher Joe White highlights an intriguing crater that seems to sport some kind of circular dome-like oddity at its center as well as what appears to be a pyramid just a few hundred feet away.

    The oddities were spotted via the Google Mars program which allows users to explore the Red Planet in a manner similar to their popular service that lets users look at areas all over Earth. White notes that the area where the potential structures were found is also a location that may be visited in the future by a Mars rover being sent to the planet as part of a joint mission by ESA and the Russian space agency.

    To his credit, while the anomaly hunter argues that the ‘structures’ look artificial, White concedes that similar pronouncements have been proven wrong in the past when higher resolution images revealed that suspicious ‘domes’ inside craters were revealed to be sand dunes.

    On that note, skeptics say that the newfound dome and pyramid are simply another case of pareidolia playing tricks on wishful anomaly hunters, albeit this particular case in unique in that White managed to find two ‘structures’ seemingly right next to each other. Source: Daily Mail

    Battlebury Hill Crop Circle

    This crop glyph at Battlebury Hill is spectacular.  Steven Clementson in the U.K. made me aware of this recent development on 5 July.  He included an image (attached) showing how this glyph matches the Celtic “shield knot” and the sacred Cosmati Pavements. I would like to add that the loops are like what the craft produced with their lights in 1992-1994.  See attached UFO loops, discussed on my Transformation 1992 YouTube video.

    Angel and Alien Healings

    There is abundant mention of angels in the Bible, the nature of this revelation is without the same kind of explicit description we often find with other subjects developed in Scripture: Every reference to angels is incidental to some other topic. They are not treated in themselves. God’s revelation never aims at informing us regarding the exact nature of angels. When they are mentioned, it is always in order to inform us further about God, what he does, and how he does it. Though theologians have been cautious in their study of angels we have been bombarded in recent   years by what could easily be called Angelmania.

    In Newsweek’s  article titled “In Search of the Sacred” observed that “20% of Americans have had a revelation from God in the last year, and 13% have seen or sensed the presence of an angel” The bookstores abound with books on angels that claim encounters with angels, but also instruct people on how to contact them. Angels are servants of God and described by the author of Hebrews as, “ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?” Psalm 91:11 states: For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. . So certainly, for those who believe the record of Scripture, we can trust in the Bible’s teaching on angels and the personal accounts of reputable people.”

    A good illustration of the latter can be found in an article by Sue Bohlin entitled, “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.” She writes: I was about thirteen years old when I had my first encounter with an angel. I was going upstairs to my room, pulling my entire weight on the handrail, when it suddenly came off in my hand. I fell backwards, head first. Halfway into a terrible fall, I felt a strong hand on my back push me upright. There was nobody there—well, nobody visible!

    A friend of mine became a pastor that surprised me based on his previous life. I asked why? He stated, I was swimming and lost my strength and began to drown and slowly sank to the bottom of the lake. As I floated down I saw a great light and strong hands pushed me to the surface much closer to the shore and I was able to live. I’m convinced I drowned, but was chosen to live for a great purpose in my life.

    There are sometimes similarities to stories from abductees who report losing consciousness as they enter the craft, but awake in a round white room lying naked on an operating table. Aliens with large black eyes often help the abductees undress.  The aliens usually do not speak, but communicate telepathically. They tell the abductee again they will not be hurt and to relax.  The aliens flex and touch various parts of the body using small hand held instruments.  Next, larger and more sophisticated instruments and machines and scan and probe the body. I know several witnesses who believe that the aliens healed their disease or tumors. Many of the abductees report healing of disease and parts of their body.

    The examinations are often painful, traumatic, and embarrassing.  The experience is similar to an operation in an American hospital but with greater pain.  A comparatively tall alien leader often described as the doctor will touch the head of the abductee and relieve the pain. This may be a method of controlling the abductee.

    Preston Dennett reports diphtheria, tuberculosis, polio, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy are just a few of the many diseases cured by both angels and aliens. Nearly every organ and organ system has been cured at one time or another. There are several cases on record in which ETs have cured people of heart problems

    As a young girl Alice was very sick and the Doctor told her parents she would be dead by morning. That night, Alice was transported inside a UFO where she saw angels or aliens whom she describes as “angels in white robes with silver belts.” Alice now realizes that her experience matches the typical onboard UFO experience. The next morning her parents came to see her, and she asked for breakfast and was healed. As a child Alice felt she was healed by angels. Inside the UFO, the aliens waved a small “rod-like device” around her body and then made her stand inside a “large blue cylinder.” A blue light was turned on, and then Alice exited the cylinder she was informed she was now cured and ‘cleansed.’” Many people who have been healed also are given the ability to heal others. Alice Haggerty believes she was cured of diphtheria. Thanks to Preston Dennett

    To Heal a Friend or Relative

    Think, o God, of our friend who is ill, whom we now commend to Your compassionate regard. Comfort him upon his sickbed, and ease his suffering. We beg for deliverance, and submit that no healing is too hard for the Lord, if it be His will. We therefore pray that You bless our friend with Your loving care, renew his strength, and heal what ails him in Your loving name. Thank You, Lord.

    2017: The Most Dangerous Year to Poke the Russian Bear

    Stephen Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian studies at Princeton and New York Universities, is the go-to American expert on US-Russia relations.

    In April, he said we are in “the most dangerous moment in American-Russian relations, at least since the Cuban missile crisis.” In some ways, he went on, it’s worse. Not only is it more complex, but Kennedy wasn’t simultaneously accused of being a Soviet spy.

    Cohen writes:

    “Imagine, for example, John Kennedy during the Cuban missile crisis. And for the viewers who are not of a certain age, the Kennedy administration was presented—and the evidence, by the way, was presented to us; they showed us the surveillance photos of Soviet missiles in Cuba. There was no doubt what the Soviets had done, putting nuclear missile silos in Cuba. No evidence has been presented today of anything. Imagine if Kennedy had been accused of being a secret Soviet Kremlin agent. He would have been crippled. And the only way he could have proved he wasn’t was to have launched a war against the Soviet Union. And at that time, the option was nuclear war.”

    The media circus would be hilarious if it didn’t mean all life on the planet wasn’t at risk of being irrevocably irradiated out of existence.

    “You know it’s easy to joke about this, except that we’re at maybe the most dangerous moment in US-Russian relations in my lifetime, and maybe ever. And the reason is that we’re in a new cold war, by whatever name. We have three cold war fronts that are fraught with the possibility of hot war, in the Baltic region where NATO is carrying out an unprecedented military buildup on Russia’s border, in Ukraine where there is a civil and proxy war between Russia and the west, and of course in Syria, where Russian aircraft and American warplanes are flying in the same territory. Anything could happen.” The Russophobes have dug themselves so deep they can’t turn back now. Through egg-colored goggles, everything is proof the Kremlin is holding Uncle Sammy hostage.

    Note: I have intimate knowledge of the Cuban crisis and flew fifty miles from Cuba refueling RF 101 reconnaissance aircraft flying at low level over Cuba. Because I had a Top Secret Clearance I was recalled to General Sweeney’s Tactical Air Command Commander’s office to carry the nuclear missile photographs to General LeMay’s office who was the Commander of the entire Air Force. We were closer to World War III than people know. In nuclear war, all men and women are cremated equally.”

    Now the future of the world and your life is in the hands of two men, Putin and Trump. What is the point of the news media forcing them into a possible nuclear confrontation?

    Filer’s Files #30 – 2017 UFO the Greatest Story Ever -  PART II

    UFO Sightings in the United States

    Arizona Light

    Peoria — When I went outside it was at night getting a smoke I saw 4 to 5 yellow orbs on July 20, 2017. I thought it was the moon, but it wasn’t shaped like the moon due to cloud cover like a crescent moon the ufo broke up into four or five orbs. Then it was absorbing the orbs and took off. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    California Object

    Moorpark – I was in the backyard assembling a BBQ grill and stood up to straightened back and noticed a whitish cylinder shaped object traveling above on June 19, 2017. I grabbed my phone to take pictures; and was able to take a couple pictures straight up as it flew off silently. The object was moving pretty fast for its size on a pretty clear afternoon around 3:30 pm on June 18, 2017.

    Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Colorado Disc

    Loveland — We were hiking up at the Devil’s Backbone on July 12, 2017. We were looking for any sort of animals and taking pictures of the scenery in the surrounding area. I did not see or hear the ufo and didn’t realize I had caught it on camera until later. It took only one photo to catch it. The other photos I added to this submission are my attempts to zoom in.

    It was a camera phone so the pictures are not the best. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Florida Abduction

    Deltona — I have experienced things before, and so have a few of my family members. I am not sure why they come or when they will, but they do. It was a normal night unlike any other on July 5, 2017. I went to bed and awoke to brightness in my room. I grabbed my phone and saw that it was only 4:26 AM. and I wondered why it was so bright in my room since it was only 4:30 AM in the morning but was suddenly so sleepy that all I did was lay back down in bed as if nothing happened and went back to sleep. At least that is what I can remember as if there is something blocking my memory. In the morning I found it strange that I remembered waking up to a bright light, but had done nothing to investigate it. When I showered I noticed three spots in a triangular shape on my upper leg shown. But as usual cannot remember what happened and accept it. All I remember is the powerful light. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Tampa — We were at a friend’s balcony in the afternoon when we saw the UFO on August 11 2014. At first I thought it was something in my eye, but it moved in all directions until I said out loud, what is that?
    It was dark metallic black cigar in the sky and moved in all directions. It suddenly changed color onto a bright silver color. Maybe it was when the sun was hitting the UFO. It hovered on top of the city for 30 minutes and flew about two miles away/and it started hovering in the other direction. We realized that it was nothing we had ever seen before as fear invaded my body. Then we lost sight of it. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Missouri Orb

    I was sitting in my office on June 16, 2017, when one of my employees who was currently on a smoke break told me to come outside. He told me to look up and straight ahead in which I saw one glowing object. He told me there were three but one had disappeared. As soon as he told me that the second object turned its lights back on a started to slowly fly away… as soon as it got above us it disappeared but I continued to snap pictures and got the outline of the object. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    New Jersey Objects and Metallic Sphere

    My brother and I were outside, when we noticed what we thought to be a star in the sky on July 16, 2017. It was a shiny speck. We both ran inside and grabbed my camera, which had a 250x zoom lens with 18 megapixels. We took 4 photos. We went back inside to look at the pictures, and in awe we realized they were shaped oddly and had pipes. It wasn’t a star at all. Thinking it was a UFO, we went back outside to take more pictures and it was already gone.

    Salem — I was driving along and witnessed a metallic sphere move through the clouds on July 6,2017and then hover.

    I lost sight of the object around the next bend.

    Thanks to MUFON CMS

    New Mexico Lights

    Las Cruces — The event was on July 5, 2017, and this happened to a good friend of mine and his wife. My friend had fallen asleep on his recliner in the living room. His wife was in their bedroom watching TV and they have a large window behind the head board of their bed. She states she “heard voices” coming from the left side of their house. She ran into the living room, woke up my friend and he went outside to investigate with their basset hound who, started barking like crazy, The dog was running back and forth and kept looking up at the sky. My friend never saw anything and the next day he checked his video, the circular light at the 3 o’clock position is a known street light. The light we want you to investigate is the light at the 9 o’clock position. 25 miles away that is facing towards White Sands Missile Range. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    New York Cylinder

    Amsterdam – I was riding in a vehicle coming home from a restaurant on July 16, 2017, looking at the sky through the sun roof. We were just leaving the city of Amsterdam. We were driving on Route 5 heading east towards Schenectady. I noticed this black object flying in the sky. It didn’t look like an airplane because it didn’t have wings and it was black. The object was just below the clouds but visible so that meant it had to be huge. The object appeared to be kind of rectangular in shape flying west very slowly. It was going a lot slower than an airplane. I felt excited because I am very interested in space and recorded the object. I took my eyes off it and looked at my Phone and looked back up it had disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Oregon Light

    Diamond Lake Lodge — The object was here on July 19, 201, and was silver with shadow from the sun light, and at times emitted a glow. It has been seen with a black or dark craft hovering close by. Then the dark craft darts away after 4 minutes. It appears as a triangle of lights and as a singular orb of light. I have pictures emerging from Crater Lake as well. I’ve been posting daily for over a week Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Tennessee Boomerang

    Memphis – I was in the Main Historic District, at 12:15PM, taking out the trash on July 16, 2017, I took note of the mostly sunny sky. At first, I thought one of the birds had gone crazy doing aerial acrobats in a relatively small piece of the sky, then realized it was within too small a window of the sky even for a bird to behave this way. Then I realized it wasn’t flapping its wings and realized it was actually much farther away just above the cloud-bases. It was half an inch in size at arm’s length at about 5000-6000 feet altitude. It must’ve been quite large. I saw the first flare of brilliant turquoise-white light, bright even in broad daylight. It repeated within a few seconds.

    I retrieved my 12X binoculars and the pitch black silky smooth object rose a 1000 feet. The shape was a rigid flattened V with the wings ending in a blunt 90 degree angles. The light flared again from the nose of the object. There were no notable windows, cockpit, or light source. Note: The turquoise-white light was “flaring” sporadically, every 5 to 20 seconds, so bright that it obscured the view of the craft. The exterior was featureless with no discernible engine, exhaust, seams or wheel wells just a flat V.
    The object’s cart wheeled and somersaulted all over the place mostly rising, sometimes falling. I observed these continued maneuvers through the binoculars for six minutes. I couldn’t imagine a plane that large doing that without coming to pieces or any person enduring the ride. It was constantly tumbling and estimate its width was 130 feet (+/- 20 feet), with a length of 70% of the width. I ran inside to grab a camera but when I returned, the object was gone. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Virginia Light

    National Airport — My 10 year old daughter flying home from her summer vacation with her godmother on July 8, 2017, took pictures of the plane taking off. She was excited to show me the wings of the plane and the pretty clouds she took with her cell phone during her first flight. She didn’t even notice these bizarre lights, but of course, I did. These lights are very weird and there is no logical explanation. Because I was not with her, I cannot answer most of the questions you asked. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    West Virginia Lights

    Smoot – On July 18, 2017, we were driving on I-64 around 2:15 AM, when we noticed the half crescent moon beginning to turn a bright red-orange color. We were the only cars on the road and the clear night felt eerily silent. Then, a large smokey fog came out from the trees and onto the road. We then began to see eight deer standing alongside the road.

    We looked up and saw an object covering the middle of the moon, but it then disappeared. Two minutes later, we saw bright red flashing lights in the sky around the moon for about 40 seconds. Then they flew away into the trees but continued to pop up and flash as I started recording with my phone. The lights went out and I tried to record again, but the camera was frozen and would not focus on anything. I still managed to keep recording as the lights flashed and the object flew around making a/buzzing. My mom and I began to feel scared, strange and confused. We had a feeling it was something extra-terrestrial. The sighting took place for around 20 minutes and followed us from Smoot to Caldwell. It disappeared after we got off the Caldwell exit. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Washington Object

    Mt. St. Helen’s — I thought that you might be interested in this photo. I took on July 16, 2017 around 11:45 AM. We were at view point turn off on the way up to the Mt. St. Helen’s observatory. I didn’t realize I captured it until I uploaded my photos to my computer. There weren’t any birds, helicopters or airplanes flying then so I am not sure what it is. It is not something on my lens since the pictures I took before and after don’t have the spot on it. This photo is completely unedited. I didn’t mess with the contrast or anything.

    Note: The object could be an insect, but this is speculation. Thanks to William Puckett, Director Http://www.UFOsnw.com

     

    Worldwide UFO Sightings

    Australia ‘Lights and Cylinder

    Harvey Bay – I went out to the Urangan Pier to take pictures of the water on February 10, 2017.

    The UFO appears in just one picture with various colored lights.

    Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Port Macquarie, N.S.W — .Object was first sighted with 90 MM telescope on July 9, 2017. At 2.06 PM to 2.39 PM, it was not visible to the naked eye. The object drifted west for 5 minutes and then east for 20 minutes until it was out of sight. I used a Canon 7D camera with a 1,800 MM lens raw format. The object was fading in and out of visibility and was turning slowly at times. It looked like a possible serpent, similar to Mexico sightings. Your guess on what this object was is as good as mine. It was an unknown object. Correction: This case is from William Puckett, Director Http://www.UFOsnw.com

    Canada Object

    Oshawa — I thought to share an interesting image taken on July 11, 2017, on a relative clear sky. I took some pictures and reviewed them later and found this strange white anomaly. Later that day after a family dinner outside, we were relaxing as a very low – slow Police helicopter flew around the house three times. It then flew directly over with its front light on and then was gone. Here is the original picture taken along with enhancements. Thanks to Paul Shishis

    France Lights

    Valensole — On July 7, 2017 at 10 pm Sébastien went into his garden and saw lights in the sky in a southerly direction. Three aligned spheres seemed to move into a cigar shape and rose vertically as if to observe the ground.
    Sébastien called his friend who saw the lights and went to warn his neighbors and took photos. These neighbors arrived around 10:20 PM and saw the lights reappearing coming from the western horizon. The spheres were independent small red and blue balls maneuvering around. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Germany Lights

    Frankfurt –The lights were coming from the left side of us on July 8, 2017. They were moving constantly forward and more up into the sky with blinking different colors. See video. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Greece Lights

    Athens — I captured this photo for a birthday party on the of our building’s roof with more than 50 people around me on June 21, 2017. I made several photos with my 85 mm 1, 2 Canon Lens and captured the Parthenon.

    I did not see the lights in the dark sky when I took the picture. I viewed the picture and saw the lights in the sky and changed my position to check the lights but they remained. I zoomed in on the picture and I realized the lights on top of Parthenon have shadow like a triangle aircraft. Why can’t we see anything with our eyes but the camera captures the lights? Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Peru Disc

    Cajamarca — I saw a circular transparent, object in the shape of a disk that emanated a great light that lasted three hours on June 18, 2017. I photographed and recorded it at night, and observed the luminous object at low altitude. It flew silently at great speed and was seen by several people on different days.
    The first appearance was at 5:40 PM, two days before, then on Father’s Day, a very shiny object was seen static near the sun.

    You must look carefully to spot it as it only appears white. With the increase of the camera: zoom, it was possible to see three green, red and yellow lights.

    It was not a comet, or a star, or a plane, or a helicopter, or a satellite, or a drone.
    Some friends and relatives also photographed the objects. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Turkey Lights

    Aydin — I’m sorry about my English if there is false grammar please try to understand me ok.
    The story started on April 3, 2017, at 6.38 am.

    I woke up to feed my cats who were making lots of noise but I still have no idea what it was. It was weird and unusual and I checked the time on my TV’s receiver as 6.38 am.
    I just wanted to give them a little bit of food because I felt tried and just wanted to continue to sleep. Suddenly I found myself looking out the window and saw something of a ball of plasma that moved fast and then moved like feather in the air. My phone was next to me so I took a video and photos at 6.56 am. My fiancé also saw it.
    I have got lots of video and photos. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    UK England Sphere

    Poole — While reviewing photographs I found an unexpected object in several photos taken over a short period time on 9th July 2017.

    I had no idea that I might find an object of UFO interest. I was photographing the sky at the coast trying to capture early evening sky color transitions.
    I found a brown egg shaped fuzzy object in a photo. At first I assumed it must be an out of focus cormorant or a bug on the lens. I checked the EXIF data and found it was taken at 1000th of a second. This would not have given me a blurred image of a bird. I also noted that the foreground and distance was in focus. I then checked the photos taken before and after and found two small objects and one much larger that all resembled the original object. They were all placed differently in the sky. This ruled out anything having stuck to the lens. This object does not resemble anything I have witnessed in relation to training exercises, helicopter activity, or troop transportation. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    A Team of Scientists Just Made Food From Electricity — and it Could be the Solution to World Hunger

    IN BRIEF
    A Finnish research team has taken a step towards the future of food by developing a method for producing food from electricity. If scaling it up proves to be successful, it could be a tool in the fight against world hunger and climate change.

    THE ELECTRIC BIOREACTOR FARM

    Finnish researchers have created a batch of single-cell protein that is nutritious enough to serve for dinner using a system powered by renewable energy. The entire process requires only electricity, water, carbon dioxide, and microbes. The synthetic food was created as part of the Food From Electricity project, which is a collaboration between Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.

    After exposing the raw materials to electrolysis in a bioreactor, the process forms a powder that consists of more than 50 percent protein and 25 percent carbohydrates — the texture can also be changed by altering the microbes used in the production.

    The next stage, according to Juha-Pekka Pitkänen, principal scientist at VTT, is to optimize the system because, currently, a bioreactor the size of a coffee cup takes around two weeks to produce one gram of the protein. Pitkänen said in a LUT press release, “We are currently focusing on developing the technology: reactor concepts, technology, improving efficiency, and controlling the process.”

    He predicted that it would take about a decade before a more efficient incarnation of the system would be widely available — “Maybe 10 years is a realistic timeframe for reaching commercial capacity, in terms of the necessary legislation and process technology.”

    A WORLD WITHOUT HUNGER

    The potential impact of food produced using electricity and other widely available raw materials is enormous. Currently, there are two main ways that it could be used.

    First, as a means of feeding starving people and providing a source of food in areas that are not suited to agricultural production. Pitkänen said that, in the future, “the technology can be transported to, for instance, deserts and other areas facing famine,” providing a source of cheap and nutritious food to those who need it most.

    The machine also works independently of environmental factors, meaning that it could feed people consistently — Jero Ahola, a Professor at LUT, said in the press release that it “does not require a location with the conditions for agriculture, such as the right temperature, humidity or a certain soil type.”

    Second, as a means of decreasing global emissions by reducing the demand for food livestock and the crops necessary to feed them. Currently, the meat industry accounts for between 14 and 18 percent of global emissions of greenhouse gases, as well as taking up swarths of land that could be applied for other ends.

    The food from electricity project could decrease the amount of unsustainable farming needed to fill our bellies as it provides us with a smaller, cheaper, and renewable method of getting our nutrients. Other solutions to this problem include lab-grown meat or turning to insect farming, which produces less waste and requires less energy.

    ‘THEIR SHIPS WERE FAR SUPERIOR TO OURS – BOY, WERE THEY BIG! – NEIL ARMSTRONG [VIDEO]

    Armstrong: I can’t go into details, except to say that their ships were far superior to ours both in size and technology – Boy, were they big! … And menacing … No, there is no question of a space station.

    Is there an occult reason why NASA hasn’t returned to the moon in decades? There are so many mysteries connected with the Apollo missions and the programs’ abrupt end. Many Ufologists have claimed throughout the years that the real reason why NASA decided to end the Apollo program are the numerous structures and alien objects the astronauts found while touching down on the lunar surface.

    According to reports, Armstrong stated in an interview with an unnamed professor at a symposium that the Astronauts presence on the moon during the Apollo missions was immediately noticed by advanced alien civilizations who addressed mankind’s visitation to the moon during the Apollo 11 mission upon touchdown. These alleged ‘beings’ immediately revealed themselves occupying lunar space making it very clear mankind was not welcome on the surface of the moon.

    Armstrong: It was incredible … of course, we had always known there was a possibility … the fact is, we were warned off. There was never any questions then of a space station or a moon city.

    Professor: How do you mean “warned off”?

    Armstrong: I can’t go into details, except to say that their ships were far superior to ours both in size and technology – Boy, were they big! … and menacing … No, there is no question of a space station.

    Armstrong: Naturally – NASA was committed at that time, and couldn’t risk a panic on earth…. But it really was a quick scoop and back again. (Above Top Secret, p. 186)

    Interestingly a video posted on YouTube allegedly recorded in 1969 by Neil Armstrong backs up the story about mankind and their ‘alien’ encounters on the surface of the moon. According to the video posted online, the alleged footage was filmed in 1969 by Neil Armstrong and shows ancient ‘alien’ structures on the surface of the moon. Many people around the globe argue that it isn’t a question anymore whether or not there are mysterious ‘Alien’ structures on the moon. This video, according to many is the ultimate proof.

    Armstrong wasn’t the only astronaut to come forward claiming mankind was ‘intercepted’ on the moon.

    Dr. Edgar Mitchell, ScD., former NASA astronaut and the 6th man to walk on the moon said: “Read the books, read the lore, start to understand what has really been going on, because there is no doubt that we are being visited. . . . The universe that we live in is much more wondrous, exciting, complex and far-reaching than we were ever able to know up to this point in time. . . . [Mankind has long wondered if we’re] alone in the universe. [But] only in our period do we really have evidence. No, we’re not alone.”

    Is there life on Titan? Cassini finds molecule 'instrumental' to life in the hazy atmosphere of Saturn’s moon

    • Cassini found molecules said to be 'vital stepping stone' to complex molecules
    • The researchers say these may be the building blocks for life-creating molecules
    • The discovery could help to explain the processes that led to life on Earth

    In the hazy atmosphere of Saturn’s moon Titan, scientists have discovered molecules thought to be the building-blocks of the complex organic compounds that make life possible.

    The surprise new find from the NASA/ESA Cassini mission means the massive moon is now a key target in the search for primitive alien lifeforms – and, it could help to explain the reactions that allowed first life to emerge on Earth.

    These molecules are thought to be a ‘vital stepping-stone’ on the way to more complex molecules, and scientists say their presence at Titan suggests the process previously only known to exist in the interstellar medium may actually be universal.

    WHAT CASSINI FOUND 

    Using the data collected as Cassini flew through the upper atmosphere, at about 950–1300 km (590-807 miles) above the surface, the researchers identified what are known as ‘carbon chain anions.’

    And, these are thought to be the building blocks of more complex molecules.

    The researchers say the data from Cassini’s plasma spectrometer (CAPS), suggest the carbon chains ‘seeded’ larger molecules at Titan, as they were found to dwindle closer to the moon, while precursors to larger aerosols underwent rapid growth.

    Not only does the discovery suggest Titan may contain molecules that drive prebiotic chemistry, but it could also help to explain how life sprung up on Earth, according to ESA.

    Titan’s atmosphere has a complex chemical makeup, and is thick with nitrogen and methane, ESA explains.

    In the upper atmosphere, these compounds are subjected to energy from sunlight and particles from Saturn’s magnetosphere, spurring chemical reactions between nitrogen, hydrogen, and carbon.

    While it’s thought that the large molecules eventually float down to the surface, how the simple molecules at higher altitudes become more complex lower down has largely remained a mystery.

    But, in a new study on data from Cassini’s plasma spectrometer (CAPS), scientists discovered a type of negatively charged molecule previously thought unable to exist in Titan’s atmosphere.

    These molecules, called anions, are highly reactive, and would quickly combine with the other materials in this environment.

    Using the data collected as Cassini flew through the upper atmosphere, at about 950–1300 km (590-807 miles) above the surface, the researchers identified what are known as ‘carbon chain anions.’

    And, these are thought to be the building blocks of more complex molecules.

    According to ESA, carbon chain anions may even have been key ingredients in the processes that led to the earliest life forms on Earth.

    ‘We have made the first unambiguous identification of carbon chain anions in a planet-like atmosphere, which we believe are a vital stepping-stone in the production line of growing bigger, and more complex organic molecules, such as the moon’s large haze particles,’ says Ravi Desai of University College and lead author of the study.

    TITAN: EARTH'S 'TOXIC TWIN'

    Aside from Earth, Titan is the only place in the solar system known to have rivers, rainfall and seas - and possibly even waterfalls.

    Of course, in the case of Titan these are liquid methane rather than water on Earth.

    Regular Earth-water, H2O, would be frozen solid on Titan where the surface temperature is -180°C (-292°F).

    Aside from Earth, Titan is the only place in the solar system known to have rivers, rainfall and seas - and possibly even waterfalls. These features are composed of liquid methane

    With its thick atmosphere and organic-rich chemistry, Titan resembles a frozen version of Earth several billion years ago, before life began pumping oxygen into our atmosphere.

    Because Titan is smaller than Earth, its gravity does not hold onto its gaseous envelope as tightly, so the atmosphere extends 370 miles (595km) into space.

    With Titan's low gravity and dense atmosphere, methane raindrops could grow twice as large as Earth's raindrops. 

    ‘This is a known process in the interstellar medium, but now we’ve seen it in a completely different environment, meaning it could represent a universal process for producing complex organic molecules.

    ‘The question is, could it also be happening within other nitrogen-methane atmospheres like at Pluto or Triton, or at exoplanets with similar properties.’

    The researchers say the data suggest the carbon chains ‘seeded’ larger molecules at Titan, as they were found to dwindle closer to the moon, while precursors to larger aerosols underwent rapid growth.

    Not only does the discovery suggest Titan may contain molecules that drive prebiotic chemistry, but it could also help to explain how life sprung up on Earth.

    Alien UFO sighting SOLVED: Mysterious lights seen from plane may have innocent explanation

    A UFO enthusiast thought he spotted three flying saucers from a plane window.

    By David Trayner 

    A mysterious video, clearly showing three lights apparently “floating” over the US, has baffled internet users after it was posted online.

    YouTube user Carmelo Valone filmed three bright lights from a plane window as he flew from Alquerque, New Mexico to Oakland, California.

    He suggested the glowing orbs could be an alien spacecraft – and asked the internet for explanations.

    MYSTERY: Three lights seen by a plane over California could be UFOs

    You can see the far right object discharging something very bright

    chillagalet98

    Some were impressed by the footage – claiming one of the “UFOs” discharged “something very bright, almost cloudish ball”.

    But users of web forum Reddit may have solved the mystery.

    Three lights spotted from a plane over California

    YOUTUBE

    BLOW OUT: The light on the right appears to emit a bright ball of light

    Viewers spotted the lights appeared to be stationary – or keeping pace with the plane so they didn’t move.

    Some suggested they could be lights in the plane cabin, reflected in the window.

    One said they might be irrigation sprinklers.

    But several others said the lights looked like bright light reflecting off the mirrors of a solar power plant.

    Reddit user IWILLCALLYOUOUT wrote: “They resemble solar mirror arrays.

    “They are extremely bright and have an other-worldly appearance when viewed from the air.”

    YouTube user Arman Peirce said: “I think I may know what that is.

    “About five miles south of the Nevada/California border on the west side of Interstate 15, there is a huge solar project.

    “It's one of those project where thousands of mirrors are all designed to focus on the top of a particular tower that is in the middle of all these mirrors.

    “I believe this type of solar project is the one where they have salt in the tower, and it heats to several hundred degrees celsius.

    “There are three towers in a row, each about half mile from each other.

    Each tower is 200 to 300 feet tall, starting with one that is about a quarter to a half mile from the interstate.

    “Each of the towers is super bright – they literally glow like a mini-sun during the day because of all the heat.

    “Those objects look stationary. [It doesn’t look] like they are following [the plane] but looks like they are on the ground.

    “It is probably this – although [I] could be wrong.”

    EXPLANATION? The Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, in California

    Arman Peirce appears to be referring to the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System – which does look like the video.

    Carmelo Valone guessed he was flying over northern Arizona when he spotted the “lights” – but the Ivanpah Solar plant is fairly near northern Arizona.

    The mystery appears to have been solved.

    But not everyone is convinced.

    Reddit user chillagalet98 said: “At 0.26 [in the video] you can see the far right object discharging something very bright – almost cloudish ball-like.

    “So I don't think these are solar mirrors.”

    Big, Dangerous Comets Are More Common Than Previously Thought

    There are a lot more big, potentially dangerous comets zooming through deep space than scientists had thought, a new study suggests.

    Astronomers have likely underestimated by a factor of seven the number of "long-period" comets — those that take at least 200 years to complete one lap around the sun — that are at least 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) wide, according to the study.

    "Comets travel much faster than asteroids, and some of them are very big," co-author Amy Mainzer, of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, said in a statement. "Studies like this will help us define what kind of hazard long-period comets may pose." [Best Close Encounters of the Comet Kind

    The study team, led by University of Maryland professor James Bauer, analyzed data gathered by NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) spacecraft.

    The data set includes observations of long-period comets and Jupiter-family comets. Long-period comets are thought to arise in the distant Oort Cloud, a spherical shell of icy bodies that begins perhaps 186 billion miles (300 billion km) from the sun, researchers said. The long-period comets that WISE spotted were likely booted inward, toward the sun, by gravitational interactions with other Oort Cloud denizens millions of years ago, the researchers added.

    Jupiter-family comets are quite different beasts. They lie relatively close to the sun, completing one lap around the star in less than 20 years. (They are so named because Jupiter's powerful gravity has shaped their orbits.)

    The WISE data revealed an unexpected abundance of long-period comets, the researchers said. For example, over an eight-month stretch, three to five times more of these objects zoomed by the sun than scientists had predicted.

    "The number of comets speaks to the amount of material left over from the solar system's formation," Bauer said in the same statement. "We now know that there are more relatively large chunks of ancient material coming from the Oort Cloud than we thought."

    The study team also determined that long-period comets are up to twice as large, on average, as Jupiter-family comets. The size discrepancy is likely a consequence of the Jupiter-family comets' more frequent trips past the sun, the researchers said: Every time these icy wanderers get close to Earth's star, the sun's intense heat drives off water and other volatile substances, which drag dust with them as they jet into space. 

    "Our results mean there's an evolutionary difference between Jupiter-family and long-period comets," Bauer said.

    The WISE spacecraft launched to Earth orbit in December 2009 and successfully carried out an all-sky survey in infrared light. NASA put WISE into hibernation in February 2011 but reactivated the spacecraft two years later to search for asteroids and other near-Earth objects. (Mainzer is the principal investigator for this new mission, which is called NEOWISE.)

    The new study, which was published earlier this month in The Astronomical Journal, looked at data the spacecraft gathered during its prime mission, in 2010.

    Shuttle-Era Cargo Module to Become Deep Space Habitat Prototype

    A cargo container that was built to fly on NASA's space shuttles is being repurposed as a prototype for a deep space habitat.

    Lockheed Martin announced it will refurbish the Donatello multi-purpose logistics module (MLPM), transforming from it from its original, unrealized role as a supply conveyor for the International Space Station to a test and training model of a living area for astronauts working beyond Earth orbit. The work is being done under a public-private partnership between the aerospace corporation and NASA. [Orion Explained: NASA's Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (Infographic)]

    "We are excited to work with NASA to repurpose a historic piece of flight hardware," said Bill Pratt, Lockheed Martin's program manager for the deep space habitat contract, in a statement.

    Donatello was one of three MPLMs that was designed to fly in the space shuttle payload bay to transfer cargo to the station. Built by the Italian Space Agency under a contract with NASA, two modules, Leonardo and Raffaello, flew on 12 shuttle missions between 2001 and 2011.

    In February 2011, Leonardo became a permanent storage module for the station, in part by using insulation that was stripped from the never-flown Donatello.

    Lockheed Martin will build its full-scale habitat prototype in the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, where the Donatello module has been located. The MPLM measures 21 feet long by 15 feet in diameter (6.4 by 4.6 meters).

    Over an 18-month period, Lockheed Martin will build upon its deep space habitat concept it developed during the first phase of NASA's Next Space Technologies for Exploration Partnerships, or NextSTEP, program by using virtual and augmented reality prototyping in an effort to reduce costs and schedule, as well as identify and address issues while early in the design process. The results, to be shared with the space agency, will help to further understanding of the systems, standards and interfaces needed to make living in deep space possible.

    "It is easy to take things for granted when you are living at home, but the recently selected astronauts will face unique challenges," stated Pratt, referring to NASA's 2017 class of astronauts, who may be assigned to deep space missions. "Something as simple as calling your family is completely different when you are outside of low Earth orbit."

    "While building this habitat," Pratt continued, "we have to operate in a different mindset that is more akin to long trips to Mars."

    The deep space habitat is intended to be part of the Deep Space Gateway, a planned crew-tended spaceport in lunar orbit under development by NASA. In addition to the living module, the gateway, as proposed, includes a power bus, docking capability, an airlock and a propulsion module.

    To be launched within he first few missions of the Space Launch System (SLS) heavy-lift rocket, the gateway could also eventually serve as a staging point for a transport for astronaut missions outward into the solar system, or as a staging ground for missions to the lunar surface.

    In addition to the deep space habitat prototype, Lockheed will also build a deep space avionics integration laboratory in Houston to demonstrate command and control between the Deep Space Gateway and the Orion spacecraft, also being developed by the company. According to Lockheed Martin, the lab will "help reduce risk associated with critical data interfaces" between gateway elements and "provide an environment for astronauts to train for various mission scenarios."

    "Because the Deep Space Gateway would be uninhabited for several months at a time, it has to be rugged, reliable and have the robotic capabilities to operate autonomously. Essentially it is a robotic spacecraft that is well-suited for humans when Orion is present," said Pratt.

    In addition to Lockheed Martin, NASA selected five other companies to develop ground prototypes and concepts for deep space habitats, including Boeing, Orbital ATK, Sierra Nevada Corporation, Bigelow Aerospace and NanoRacks.

    "We zijn allemaal immigranten": mens is samengesteld uit atomen van andere sterrenstelsels - HLN.be 

    Bron: The Independent, The Guardian

    Uit onderzoek blijkt dat tot de helft van de materie in onze Melkweg uit andere sterrenstelsels komt. Daarom stellen wetenschappers dat we onszelf moeten beschouwen als 'immigranten uit andere sterrenstelsels'.

     © rv.

    De mens is samengesteld uit atomen die afkomstig zijn van andere sterrenstelsels dan het onze. Net als zowat de helft van heel onze Melkweg overigens. "We zijn dus allemaal ruimtereizigers of immigranten uit een ander sterrenstelsel", stelt de wetenschapper achter de nieuwe studie.

    Die studie stelt dat de mens is samengesteld uit materie die vanuit andere sterrenstelsels miljarden kilometers aflegde. 

    Galactische winden
    Wetenschappers gebruikten computermodellen om uit te vissen hoe de materie die ons omringt in ons sterrenstelsel terechtkwam. Daaruit bleek dat supernova explosies (waarbij een ster op spectaculaire wijze explodeert) grote hoeveelheden materie verspreiden dankzij krachtige galactische winden. 

    Dat betekent dat dezelfde materie waaruit de mens is samengesteld wellicht heel lang geleden en ver van ons sterrenstelsel is ontstaan. 

    "Gezien de hoeveelheid materie waaruit we zijn samengesteld afkomstig is van andere sterrenstelsels, kunnen we onszelf beschouwen als ruimtereizigers of immigranten uit andere sterrenstelsels", stelt astrofysicus Daniel Anglés-Alcazar. 

    Intergalactische transfer
    "Het is heel waarschijnlijk dat heel wat van de materie uit de Melkweg afkomstig is uit andere sterrenstelsels, waar het door een krachtige wind werd weggeblazen en door de ruimte reisde om uiteindelijk een nieuwe thuis te vinden in de Melkweg".

    Deze intergalactische transfer, het verplaatsen van materie van het ene sterrenstelsel naar het andere, is een pas ontdekt fenomeen en kan ons begrip van hoe sterrenstelsels worden gevormd fundamenteel wijzigen.

    Miljoen lichtjaren

    "Dit impliceert dat tot de helft van de atomen die ons omringen, zowel die in het zonnestelsel, op aarde als in ons allemaal, niet van ons eigen sterrenstelsel komt maar van andere sterrenstelsels die tot een miljoen lichtjaren verwijderd liggen", stelt co-auteur van de studie Faucher-Giguère.

    Hoewel deze materie zich met honderden kilometers per seconde door het universum verspreidde, waren de afstanden zo groot dat het toch nog miljarden jaren duurde. 

    De simulaties toonden aan dat de materie zich van kleinere sterrenstelsels naar grotere verplaatste. Dat gas vormde vervolgens sterren en zorgde voor bijna de helft van de materie in sterrenstelsels zoals het onze.
