    Rising seas risk washing tens of thousands archaeological sites clean off the map in the US alone

    BY ALEXANDRU MICU

    Thousands of historic and archeological sites along the southern US coast risk being engulfed by sea-level rise by the end of the century, scientists report.

    Sites under risk.

    Climate change isn’t putting just our future at risk — it’s also engendering out past, according to new research. More than 13,000 archaeological sites, historic buildings, and cultural landscapes on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the southeastern United States are at risk from sea-level rise and could be submerged by 2100.

    No ark for this flood

    The team, led by David Anderson from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville drew on data from the Digital Index of North American Archaeology (DINAA) to estimate the risk posed by sea-level rise on archaeological sites. DINAA is a platform that aggregates archeological and historical datasets compiled over the past century and from numerous sources. Its aim is to provide researchers and the public with a comprehensive view of when and where humans settled.

    Based on position and elevation data, the team warns that over 13,000 sites in the southeast alone may find themselves topped with water for a mere 1 meter (3.28 ft) rise. This includes over 1,000 sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places as having important cultural properties. But things could get much, much worse.

    These numbers increase substantially with each additional 1 m rise in sea level, with >32,000 archaeological sites and >2400 NRHP properties lost should a 5 m rise occur,” the authors warn.

    “Many more unrecorded archaeological and historic sites will also be lost as large areas of the landscape are flooded. The displacement of millions of people due to rising seas will cause additional impacts where these populations resettle.

    Large linked data sets such as the DINAA, which can predict the potential impacts of phenomena across wide areas, are essential when developing procedures for sampling, triage, and mitigation efforts, the team explains. Therefore, they hold the key to planning and adaptation in the face of climate change, extreme weather events, and the displaced populations these will bring about — factors that could shape our civilization profoundly in the years to come.

    Sea level rise will thus result in the loss of much of the record of human habitation of the coastal margin in the Southeast, the paper reads,and the numbers indicate the magnitude of the impact on the archaeological record globally.

    The paper “Sea-level rise and archaeological site destruction: An example from the southeastern United States using DINAA (Digital Index of North American Archaeology)” has been published in the journal PLOS ONE.

    A Key Evolutionary Step May Mean Intelligent Alien Life Doesn’t Exist in the Universe

    by Alexandra Ossola

    Shortly after Earth’s formation, the planet was barren of life. Then, proteins combined in just the right way, and life appeared. For billions of years, it was simple and uninteresting, oceans full of simple, single-celled organisms floating for millennia after millennia. Suddenly, life got a lot more interesting. Organisms became more complex, with more than one cell. And they got much bigger — 10,000 times bigger by volume, Nick Lane, professor of evolutionary chemistry at University College London, wrote in his 2015 book The Vital Question.

    The importance of this step — of this sudden increase in size and complexity — cannot be overstated. Without it, complex life (like humans, for example) would not exist.

    How exactly this step happened is one of the big questions in evolutionary biology. There are a number of theories about how, exactly, life got so much more complicated. One of the prevailing theories, from Lane himself, focuses on energy. Here’s the thinking: Cells need more energy to build more complex structures. To do that, according to Lane’s theory, single-celled organisms merged with bacteria we now know as mitochondria, which have an electrical charge and bring power to the cell. It’s possible, though unlikely, for the two bacteria to fit together, and even less probably that the two were able to survive and live symbiotically. This occurrence that made possible all other forms of complex life is rare, to be sure.

    But in Lane’s opinion, it only happened once.

    “It comes down to one merger between two cells that made one cell, then everything comes from that. You, me, the redwood tree or the hummingbird, a fungus, a piece of algae growing in a pond, every form of life we can see with our naked eyes and many that we can’t come from that single cell,” Nick said in an episode of the science podcast Radiolab on his work.

    The debate around how life got much more complicated is important to understand the history of life on Earth, but it also could inform our search for life on other planets. If complex life is exceedingly rare, does that make it less likely for us to find intelligent life in the universe? Should we instead be looking for something much smaller and simpler? If the universe outside of Earth only populated by single-celled organisms? Because these specific conditions are so unlikely, might complex life only exist on our own planet?

    Futurism got in touch with a few experts to ask if they agree with Lane’s theory, if they believe intelligent extraterrestrial life is possible, and to get their perspectives on whether we should somehow alter our search.


    Mohamed Noor, a professor of biology at Duke University:

    To the best of my knowledge, Lane’s version of what happened is likely true: Acquiring mitochondria happened [only] once, long ago in the ancestor of plants, fungi, and animals. It greatly facilitated the evolution of multicellular organisms.

    However, it’s impossible to know how to assess the need for something like that in the context of life that is totally unrelated to life on Earth. All life on Earth has a single common ancestor. This ancestor (and all life we on Earth) was presumably carbon/water-based, replicated using nucleic acids, and lived in conditions that existed on ancient or modern Earth. If life arose on a much colder world, for example, many other [environmental] parameters may be totally different as well.

    In such a case, life there may use liquid ammonia rather than water as a solvent. It may not use nucleic acids for heredity. But some aspects may be general to life carbon may intrinsically make sense for life, given its abundance and ability to make long chains. A “cell membrane” of some sort to insulate that life from its environment also seems probable. Finally, there are other things we never think about. How “fast” does this life metabolize and interact? Are there generations occurring in the blink of an eye? Or single interactions over millennia, moving so slowly we wouldn’t even notice?

    Honestly, I feel like we cannot have any estimate of the probability of life of any kind (intelligent or not) until we move from a sample size of 1 (related to life on Earth) to a sample size of at least 2 [that is, until we discover at least one more example of life in the universe].

    Back to your question, any “life” needs a source of power, but mitochondria need not be the only solution to that problem, especially if life is starting with a completely different basis. Still, my best guess is that microbial-sized life is way more likely to exist than something as large as us on other worlds. If our desire is to “find life,” I speculate that we’re much better off closely examining acquired samples from Europa or other worlds than waiting to receive a radio signal.

    Pierre Pontarotti, the director of research at the Mathematics Institute of Marseille, wrote:

    The symbiosis between bacteria and eukaryotes has occurred many times during the evolution of life on Earth. For example, cyanobacteria [merged] with the ancestors of plant cells — the cyanobacteria became the chloroplast. Therefore, if organisms like bacteria and eukaryotes are present on another planet, the symbiosis should happen.

    We, of course, have no information about the kind of life that exists on other planets. But because galaxies and planets have evolved many times during the history of the universe, why shouldn’t life do so as well?

    John Rummel, senior scientist with the SETI Institute:

    Given the many advantages offered by the symbiosis of the pre-eukaryote and the pre-mitochondrial bacterium, it is entirely possible that once was enough — given that free oxygen could have been present to fuel the combination. “Once” here may not refer to a single endosymbiotic event, of course.

    We don’t know exactly where, and at what scale, eating pre-mitochondria became popular on Earth… The right biochemistry is the key to that being an advantageous thing to do, of course, so whether it is widespread in the cosmos is more a biochemical question than a natural-science one. [It has to be] just so… Without mitochondrial advantages, it might be a struggle to develop complex, anoxic biochemistries that could support the evolution of intelligence on a physically challenging world, but not impossible.

    volcano

    supervolcano could kill millions of humans, pushing us back to a pre-civilization state, far sooner than scientists previously thought, according to a new report in Earth and Planetary Science Letters. But we shouldn’t worry. Something else will probably kill us first, seeing as the global climate is warmingantibiotic-resistant bacteria are thriving, and nuclear war is a greater threat than ever. Against that backdrop, the study suggests, a supervolcano wiping out most or all humans on Earth seems like a non-issue.

    Still, it’s not impossible.

    In the paper published Wednesday, the Bristol University team revised previous scientific estimates of how often catastrophic supervolcano eruptions occur. While prior research put world-changing eruptions at comfortably wide intervals, the new paper shrinks that timescale considerably. Previous estimates, made in 2004, said that super-eruptions occurred, on average, every 45,000 to 714,000 years, a time scale that Jonathan Rougier, Ph.D., a statistician and the study’s first author, says is “comfortably longer than our civilization.” His new work puts the updated range at 5,200 to 48,000 years, with the “best guess” value at 17,000 years.

    This range gives us significantly less time to prepare for the next cataclysmic eruption, but Rougier isn’t bothered by it. “My view … is that we should not be worried about super-eruptions,” Rougier tells Inverse.

    toba caldera

    Toba Caldera in Sumatra, Indonesia, produced the largest volcanic eruption of the past 2 million years.

    Rougier’s study represents a significant change in the estimated frequency of world-changing supervolcano eruptions. By studying geological records covering the past 100,000 years, he and his colleagues found that the two most recent supervolcano eruptions occurred 20 and 30 thousand years ago.

    “On balance, we have been slightly lucky not to experience any super-eruptions since then,” reports Rougier. This would seem to suggest that it’s about time we had another one of these super-eruptions, but just because we haven’t seen one doesn’t necessarily mean we’re overdue for one. In all likelihood, something else will probably kill us first.

    “The probability of a super-eruption in (say) my lifetime is absolutely tiny, about 2 in 1000,” says Rougier. “From that point of view, super-eruptions are marginal in light of all the things that we need to worry about right now, and all of the other ways in which our civilization might experience a catastrophe over the next few thousand years.

    That being said, Rougier notes, there definitely are communities around the world that are at risk for large — but not super — eruptions.

    “They do need to plan and to invest in order to reduce their risk.”

    CANADIAN PHYSICS PROFESSOR CLAIMS TO HAVE UNCOVERED ETI SIGNALS FROM 234 STARS

    For quite a while, humans have been curious to find out if life exists beyond the small fraction of the universe we occupy. For instance, we have been fascinated by UFO sightings and reports of aliens being found, regardless of how fake or silly it may sound. Furthermore, in the famous radio broadcast "War of the Worlds, "many humans believed that aliens were actually going after them, and many US states evacuated even though they were told before the start of the program that it was all a dramatization.  

    This human fascination with the supernatural has led some researchers to believe that special signals coming from 234 stars are extraterrestrial beings also trying to find out if they are the only inhabitants of the universe. These 1.65 picosecond long pulses are thought to have originated from some sort of extraterrestrial life form.  

    This isn't the first time humans have tried searching for extraterrestrial life: back when the MERCURY unmanned probes still existed, scientists sent along gold plates of data regarding the human race, and a CD with greetings in many of Earth's languages. Perhaps this discovery means that the extraterrestrial life forms have received our message and are replying back.

    However, this could also be a hoax. 1.65 picosecond pulses could be a result of instrumental inaccuracies or poor observer measurement. Additionally, the length of time is so small that the perfect hoaxer would make it look as if it was a believable amount of time but significant enough to spark interest.

    Space exploration is constantly getting better, and maybe in the future, we will be able to debunk the mysteries of extraterrestrial life once and for all!

    Flat Earth Society gaat in discussie met Elon Musk, en wat daarop volgt is gewoon geweldig - HLN.be

     Thinkstock
     Ondanks het overweldigende wetenschappelijke bewijs zijn er nog steeds mensen die geloven dat de aarde plat is. De Flat Earth Society heeft zelfs een geverifieerde Twitteraccount, met een erg actieve beheerder. Die ging eerder deze week in discussie met Elon Musk, CEO van Tesla, en dat leverde een geweldig staaltje internetgoud op.

    Als je ervan uitgaat dat de aarde plat is, zou je logischerwijs denken dat hetzelfde geldt voor de andere planeten. Maar aan logica doet de Flat Earth Society duidelijk niet mee. Toen Elon Musk eergisteren op Twitter met een knipoog vroeg waarom er geen Flat Mars Society bestaat, besloten de aanhangers van de platte aarde zich te mengen in de discussie. 

    “Hey Elon, bedankt voor je vraag. In tegenstelling tot de Aarde hebben we kunnen observeren dat Mars rond is. We hopen dat je een fantastische dag hebt!”, klonk het beleefde doch ietwat dubieuze antwoord. En daarmee ontketenden ze een Twitterstorm die ons nog lang zal heugen.

    De Flat Earth Society werd met veel sarcasme op de korrel genomen, en het moet gezegd: de twitteraar achter de account beschikt over veel doorzettingsvermogen en een goed gevoel voor humor. De man of vrouw bleef maar antwoorden op ironische vragen en niet al te subtiele uithalen. Hij liet zich lustig meeslepen in een semantische discussie over het verschil tussen ronde, sferische en bolvormige objecten:

    Hij maakte vreemde verwijzingen naar Star Wars:

    Maakte zichzelf ook ietwat belachelijk toen hij het belang van bewijzen aanhaalde:

    En toen de Hollow Earth Society, die gelooft dat de aarde een lege bal is, zich begon te moeien in het gesprek, was het hek helemaal van de dam.

     De mythe van de yeti, ofwel de verschrikkelijke sneeuwman, is onuitroeibaar. De reusachtige aap wordt al eeuwenlang waargenomen in de Himalaya en het Tibetaanse Hoogland. Wetenschappers hebben negen vermeende sporen van de yeti onderzocht.

    Het resultaat is ontnuchterend: het gaat om acht beren en een hond. De onderzochte sporen betreffen onder meer haren en tanden, zoals gevonden door de bewoners van de bergen in Nepal, Bhutan en China. De wetenschappers van onder meer de universiteit in het Amerikaanse Buffalo lieten de nieuwste genetische technieken op de aangedragen voorbeelden los. 

    Maar de haren bleken van beren en de tanden behoorden tot het gebit van een hond, zo meldt The Guardian. Wel waren de sporen van sommige beren niet geheel thuis te brengen. De wetenschappers zeggen dat het om een onbekende berensoort gaat. De onderzoekers legden ook nog ‘bewijs’ van enkele musea en dierenparken onder de loep. Ook in deze gevallen ging het om materiaal van de bruine beer die in de Himalaya leeft.

    Is helderziendheid een vorm van mentaal tijdreizen? Neurowetenschapper komt tot opmerkelijke conclusies

    Is helderziendheid een vorm van mentaal tijdreizen? Neurowetenschapper komt tot opmerkelijke conclusies

    Helderziendheid is een vorm van mentaal tijdreizen naar de toekomst om informatie te krijgen. Dat heeft dr. Julia Mossbridge gezegd.

    “We zijn gewend om de regels in de fysieke wereld toe te passen op de mentale wereld, maar we begrijpen niet dat daar andere regels gelden,” zei ze. “Het is een ander domein.”

    “In de fysieke wereld kennen we de scheiding tussen mensen in de ruimte en de scheiding tussen gebeurtenissen, maar wie zegt dat dat ook van toepassing is op de mentale wereld?” vroeg ze.

    Toevallig

    Mossbridge is een neurowetenschapper en werkt samen met natuurkundigen en psychologen om te achterhalen hoe mentaal tijdreizen werkt.

    Ze begon haar onderzoek nadat ze zelf een voorspellende droom had. Toen ze die droom had lag ze in scheiding. Ze had een kind van vijf en wist niet waar ze zou gaan wonen.

    In haar droom belde ze een huurbazin die ze kende. De huurbazin zei dat ze binnen twee maanden iets beschikbaar had.

    Na de droom kwam Mossbridge de huurbazin ‘toevallig’ tegen op straat. Elk detail van de droom werd werkelijkheid.

    Onbewust

    Mossbridge heeft onder meer experimenten van zeven onafhankelijke laboratoria geanalyseerd waaruit blijkt dat het menselijk lichaam reageert op toekomstige prikkels.

    Als er iets staat te gebeuren, weet iemand dat onbewust al. Deze reactie kan worden getest in een laboratorium door reacties in het zenuwstelsel, de zweetklieren en de hartslag te meten.

    Ze werkt ook aan experimenten die aantonen dat mensen remote viewing (verzien) en voorspellende dromen kunnen gebruiken om te voorspellen wat er op de aandelenbeurs gaat gebeuren.

    Voorkomen

    In 2015 had dr. Mossbridge een voorspellende droom over een bomaanslag van terreurgroep IS in Koeweit.

    Ze had de droom op dezelfde dag dat het gebeurde en veel van de details klopten. Ze zag het getal 27, wat stond voor het aantal slachtoffers, en de letters IS.

    Mossbridge denkt dat het een goed idee zou zijn om een register op internet te openen waar mensen hun voorspellende dromen kunnen delen.

    Misschien kan dat helpen om aanslagen te voorkomen, zei ze.

    Huiverig

    Er zijn al enkele pogingen gedaan, maar mensen zijn over het algemeen erg huiverig om hun ervaringen te delen.

    Ze zijn bang dat ze zelf van een bomaanslag worden verdacht als ze te veel details geven, aldus de neurowetenschapper.

    “Omdat we niet weten wat we met deze informatie aan moeten, zeggen we dat helderziende mensen gek zijn,” zei ze. “Of dat het slechts toeval is.”

    BEIJING, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- China's Dark Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE) has detected unexpected and mysterious signals in its measurement of high-energy cosmic rays, which might bring scientists a step closer to shedding light on invisible dark matter.

    The satellite, also called Wukong, or Monkey King, has measured more than 3.5 billion cosmic ray particles with the highest energy up to 100 tera-electron-volts (TeV for short, corresponding to 1 trillion times the energy of visible light), including 20 million electrons and positrons, with unprecedentedly high energy resolution.

    "DAMPE has opened a new window for observing the high-energy universe, unveiling new physical phenomena beyond our current understanding," said Chang Jin, chief scientist of DAMPE and vice director of the Purple Mountain Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).

    The initial detection results were published in the latest issue of the academic journal, Nature.

    "This is the first time a space experiment has reported a detailed and precise electron and positron spectrum up to about 5 TeV. In this energy range, we found some unexpected and interesting features. We have detected a spectral break at 0.9 TeV and a possible spike at 1.4 TeV," said Chang.

    Precise measurement of cosmic rays, especially at the very high energy range, is important for scientists to look for traces of dark matter annihilation or decay, as well as to understand the most energetic astrophysical phenomena in the universe, such as pulsars, active galaxy nuclei and supernova explosions. "Our data may inspire some new ideas in particle physics and astrophysics," said Chang.

    Dark matter, which cannot be seen or touched, is one of the great mysteries of science. Scientists calculate that normal matter, such as galaxies, stars, trees, rocks and atoms, accounts for only about 5 percent of the universe. However, about 26.8 percent of the universe is dark matter and 68.3 percent dark energy.

    China sent DAMPE into an orbit of about 500 kilometers above the earth on December 17, 2015, to look for evidence of the annihilation or decay of dark matter particles in space.

    DAMPE has the widest energy range coverage and the highest energy resolution of all the dark matter probes currently in space. Based on the satellite's data, scientists drew the cosmic ray electron and positron spectrum.

    To their surprise, scientists found a break at around 0.9 TeV and a strange spike at around 1.4 TeV on the spectrum. "We never expected such signals," Chang said.

    "The spike might indicate that there exists a kind of unknown particle with a mass of about 1.4 TeV," said Chang.

    "All the 61 elementary particles predicted by the standard model of particle physics have been found. Dark matter particles are beyond the list. So if we find a new elementary particle, it will be a breakthrough in physics," he added.

    "The spike is very unusual," said Fan Yizhong, deputy chief designer of the scientific application system of DAMPE. "The signals might have originated from either dark matter or pulsars. Even if they were from pulsars, it would be quite a strange astrophysical phenomenon that nobody had known before."

    "However, the data of the strange signal are still not enough. We need to collect more data to make sure it's real," Chang said.

    More than 100 Chinese scientists and engineers, together with those from Switzerland and Italy, took part in the development of DAMPE and the analysis of its data.

    Researchers have ruled out the possibility that the unusual signals are caused by a malfunction of the satellite's detectors. Independent analyses from five different teams all came to the same conclusion, said Chang.

    DAMPE's design life is three years, but as it is performing so well, scientists expect it to work much longer. "DAMPE will continue to collect data to help us better understand the anomaly and might bring dark matter out of the shadows," said Chang.

    Nobel Laureate Samuel Chao Chung Ting, leader of the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) experiment on the International Space Station, said of DAMPE, "It's a very good experiment."

    Bi Xiaojun, a particle physicist at the Institute of High Energy Physics of the CAS, said DAMPE's observations are important to help scientists better understand the origin of cosmic rays.

    "The satellite's data on the spike at 1.4 TeV are still not enough to declare a physical discovery. If the signal can be confirmed with the accumulation of data, it would be of great significance," Bi said.

    "That could be explained by either dark matter or an astrophysical source. If we use dark matter to explain it, dark matter would be different from what we thought before. It conforms to the popular dark matter model of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMP), but has some special features," Bi said.

    Chen Hesheng, a CAS academician, said that even if a candidate dark matter particle is found, it still needs other experiments such as underground detection or collider experiments to confirm it, which would be difficult.

    Chinese satelliet vangt mysterieuze signalen op. Leidt deze vreemde piek tot doorbraak?

    Een Chinese satelliet heeft mysterieuze signalen opgepikt die ons mogelijk meer kunnen vertellen over onzichtbare donkere materie.

    De satelliet, de ‘Dark Matter Particle Explorer’, heeft meer dan 3,5 miljard energierijke deeltjes gemeten, waaronder 20 miljoen elektronen en positronen.

    Met behulp van de satelliet is het mogelijk fysieke fenomenen te bestuderen die ons begrip te boven gaan, zei Chang Jin van de Chinese Academie van Wetenschappen.

    Grootste wetenschappelijke mysteries

    Het meten van kosmische straling is belangrijk voor wetenschappers die zoeken naar sporen van de vernietiging of het verval van donkere materie.

    Donkere materie kan niet worden gezien of aangeraakt en is één van de grootste wetenschappelijke mysteries.

    Wetenschappers schatten dat gewone materie – zoals sterrenstelsels, sterren, bomen, stenen en atomen – slechts vijf procent van het universum vormt.

    Zo’n 26,8 procent van het heelal bestaat uit donkere materie en 68,3 procent uit donkere energie.

    Vreemde piek

    China lanceerde de satelliet op 17 december 2015 om in de ruimte te zoeken naar bewijs voor donkere materie.

    Er werden elektronen en positronen gemeten met energieën tot vijf TeV (biljoen elektronvolt). Rond 0,9 TeV werd een onderbreking gedetecteerd en bij 1,4 TeV een vreemde piek.

    “We hadden zulke signalen nooit verwacht,” zei Chang. “De piek wijst mogelijk op het bestaan van een onbekend deeltje met een massa van ongeveer 1,4 TeV.”

    Doorbraak

    Alle 61 elementaire deeltjes die worden voorspeld door het standaardmodel zijn al gevonden. Als we dus een nieuw elementair deeltje vinden zal er sprake zijn van een doorbraak, aldus Chang.

    “De piek is zeer ongewoon,” zei Fan Yizhong, die betrokken is bij het satellietproject. “De signalen zijn mogelijk afkomstig van donkere materie of pulsars.”

    Vreemd fenomeen

    “Zelfs als ze van pulsars afkomstig waren, zouden we te maken hebben met een vreemd fenomeen waar nog niemand weet van heeft,” vervolgde hij.

    Inmiddels is uitgesloten dat de ongewone signalen zijn veroorzaakt door een technische fout. Vijf verschillende teams zijn allemaal tot dezelfde conclusie gekomen, zei Chang.

    De ontdekking is gepubliceerd in vakblad Nature.

    UFO boven Beek ook gezien vanaf industriecomplex Chemelot. Wat deed deze zwarte 'piramide' op die plek?

    UFO boven Beek ook gezien vanaf industriecomplex Chemelot. Wat deed deze zwarte ‘piramide’ op die plek?

    Begin deze week maakte een technicus van vliegveld Beek bij de redactie van NineForNews melding van een onbekend luchtvoertuig boven de luchthaven.

    Volgens de getuige is er op vrijdag 24 november even na half vijf ’s nachts stil alarm geslagen op het vliegveld vanwege een object dat wel op de radar verscheen, maar geen responder had en ook niet reageerde op radiosignalen.

    Het object naderde de radar met een snelheid van meer dan 2000 kilometer per uur, aldus de technicus, die anoniem wenste te blijven.

    Tweede getuige

    “Het verdween van de radar en wij denken dat we te maken hebben met iets van ‘elders’,” schreef de getuige. “Het is niet militair.”

    Inmiddels heeft zich een tweede getuige gemeld. Deze persoon is naar eigen zeggen werkzaam als inspecteur op de petrochemische fabriek in Sittard-Geleen, net iets ten noorden van vliegveld Beek.

    De melding, binnengekomen bij UFO Meldpunt Nederland, luidt als volgt:

    Tijdens nachtdienst op Sabic waargenomen een soort piramide omstreeks 04.45. Deze kwam zeer snel boven en draaide boven de fabriek en boog af naar het westen. Ik heb nog nooit zoiets gezien.

    Ik zag een lichtflits gepaard met een knal (vergelijkbaar met straaljager), maar daarna was het voorwerp (‘UFO’) zwart. Het gebeurde in 3 seconden, en ik heb dus een soort piramide gezien in de lucht.

    Ik wens anoniem te blijven i.v.m. herleidbaarheid tijdens deze dienst. Ik ben inspecteur op de petrochemische fabriek. Geen interesse in pers, wel melding doen.

    Gaat het hier om hetzelfde object?

    Nooit eerder

    Kunststoffabrikant Sabic bevindt zich op industriecomplex Chemelot, waar woensdag 45 van de 60 fabrieken zijn stilgelegd omdat er een groot probleem was met de stroomvoorziening.

    De fabrieken op het complex zijn eigendom van onder meer DSM, Sabic, OCI Nitrogen en Borealis.

    Voor de Chemelot-directie was het afschakelen van de fabrieken een nachtmerrie-scenario, meldt 1Limburg.

    Het nieuwsportaal bericht verder dat het verplicht afschakelen van de fabrieken een economische ramp is en nog nooit eerder is gebeurd.

    Groot alarm

    “Het is voor het eerst dat de fabrieken in één klap worden uitgeschakeld,” klonk het.

    Het is onduidelijk hoe de storing is ontstaan. De schade kan oplopen tot enkele tientallen miljoenen euro’s. Aan het einde van de dag moeten de fabrieken weer zijn opgestart.

    Bij Chemelot werd daarnaast groot alarm geslagen na een lekkage op het terrein. De brandweer riep mensen op om de omgeving te mijden en wegen werden afgezet.

    Is hier sprake van toeval of is er mogelijk een link met de waarnemingen?

    Experts dateren vermoedelijke graf van Jezus. Is dit de plek waar hij stierf en herrees uit de dood?

    Experts dateren vermeende graf van Jezus. Is dit de plek waar hij stierf en herrees uit de dood?

    Het vermoedelijke graf van Jezus blijkt veel ouder te zijn dan gedacht. Het graf, onder de Heilige Grafkerk in Jeruzalem, stamt niet uit de tijd van de kruisvaarders, maar dateert van rond 345 na Christus.

    Wetenschappers hebben het graf nauwkeurig bestudeerd en denken dat de grafkapel is gebouwd door Romeinse soldaten.

    Die bezochten Jeruzalem in opdracht van keizer Constantijn om het graf van Jezus te zoeken. Ze bouwden in het jaar 325 een heiligdom op de plek die volgens inwoners van Jeruzalem de begraafplaats van Jezus was.

    Kruis

    Vorig jaar werd de tombe voor het eerst in honderden jaren geopend. Archeologen kregen 60 uur de tijd om het graf binnen te gaan.

    Uit onderzoek naar cement onder een marmeren plaat met een kruis erop blijkt dat het dateert van 325 na Christus, zo meldt National Geographic.

    In het graf lag ook een lange plank of grafbed, waar volgens de overlevering het lichaam van Jezus werd opgelegd na zijn kruisiging.

    Zwaar te verduren

    Tot voor kort werd gedacht dat de grafkapel nog geen 1000 jaar oud was en stamde uit de tijd van de kruisvaarders.

    Het onderzoek bewijst alleen niet dat de tombe ook daadwerkelijk de begraafplaats van Jezus was.

    De Heilige Grafkerk kreeg het door de eeuwen heen zwaar te verduren, onder meer door branden, aardbevingen en belegeringen.

    De kerk werd in 1009 volledig verwoest en enige tijd later opnieuw opgebouwd.

    DE AARDE GAAT LANGZAMER DRAAIEN EN DE MAAN KRIJGT DE SCHULD

    Wetenschappers slaan alarm omdat ze verwachten dat de aarde in 2018 te maken zal krijgen met zeer zware aardbevingen. 

    Dit zou dan komen omdat de aarde langzamer gaat draaien en als reden daarvoor wijst men naar de maan


    We leven in spannende tijden, waar steeds meer aanwijzingen boven water komen dat er zich wel degelijk een soort mini zonnestelsel in de buurt van onze zon bevindt, ondanks alle ontkenningen van NASA.

    Wij zijn ook kort van geheugen, want iedereen is vergeten dat er de vorige eeuw meerdere gerespecteerde wetenschappers waren die ervan overtuigd waren dat de planeet Nibiru met haar metgezellen bestond en dat deze een vreemde ellipstische baan door ons zonnestelsel aflegt.


    xxx

    Twee wetenschappers die er als het ware uitspringen zijn de astronomen Muñoz Ferrada en Dr. Robert Harrington.

    Wij hebben eerder uitgebreid geschreven over Ferrada, waaronder het volgende:

    Bij ons in de Westerse wereld hebben waarschijnlijk maar weinig mensen gehoord van Carlos Muñoz Ferrada. 

    Hij was een Chileense astronoom die in 2001 op 92-jarige leeftijd is overleden en die misschien wel de belangrijkste aanwijzing ooit heeft gegeven voor het bestaan van de planeet Nibiru, of Hercolubus zoals deze soms ook wordt genoemd. 

    Ruim 43 jaar voordat de infrarode Iris telescoop van NASA in 1983 een onbekende planeet had ontdekt volgens een artikel in de Washington Post, sprak Ferrada hier al over. Dat is zefs ruim 36 jaar voordat in 1976 het beroemde boek van Zecharia Sitchin “De Twaalfde Planeet” verscheen. 

    Muñoz Ferrada werd beroemd in Chili toen hij op 19 januari 1939 een zware aardbeving voorspelde in zijn land voor 24 januari dat jaar. Op het moment dat hij de lezing gaf, geloofde geen mens in het publiek hem, maar toen op 24 januari 1939 Chili inderdaad werd getroffen door een zeer zware aardbeving die aan tienduizenden mensen het leven kostte, was het een ander verhaal.


    De tweede wetenschapper die eruit springt is Dr. Robert Harrington, in de jaren tachtig en begin jaren negentig hoofdastronoom van de US Naval Observatory. Ook deze astronoom was ervan overtuigd dat er een onbekende planeet in ons zonnestelsel moest zijn, omdat dit de enige logische verklaring was voor de verstoringen van omloopbanen van planeten in de buitenste regionen van ons zonnestelsel.

    Dr. Harrington stierf plotseling onder mysterieuze omstandigheden, net toen hij op punt stond om in Nieuw Zeeland opzienbarende ontdekkingen bekend te maken in 1993.

    In 1991 vertrok Harrington voor NASA met een telescoop naar Nieuw Zeeland om van daaruit de naderende planeet Nibiru vast te leggen. Hij verbleef daar in totaal bijna twee jaar en alles wat hij aan beeldmateriaal produceerde werd doorgestuurd naar Washington. Volgens mensen die hem kenden stond Harrington in januari 1993 op het punt wereldkundig te maken wat hij had ontdekt. 

    Echter, hoewel Harrington tot dan toe niets gemankeerd had, werd bij hem een zeldzame vorm van slokdarmkanker geconstateerd en was hij vreemd genoeg binnen enkele dagen dood. Wat zijn de kansen dat een gezonde man die in Nieuw Zeeland fysiek vrij zwaar werk verrichtte, binnen enkele dagen overlijdt aan kanker? De vrouw van Harrington, Betty, is er heilig van overtuigd dat haar man werd vermoord. Direct na de dood van Harrington werd de telescoop snel weggehaald of zoals een collega het omschreef, "almost before he was cold". 

    Vanaf dat moment was het eigenlijk voorgoed over met de berichtgeving rond de planeet Nibiru, althans wat de officiële kanalen betreft.

    In de volgende video die is opgenomen in 1990 zie je Dr. Harrington in gesprek met de bekende onderzoeker en auteur Zecharia Sitchin. 

     

    De afgelopen weken verschenen er uitgebreide berichten in de media over het feit dat de aarde langzamer is gaan draaien en dat dit betekent dat we volgend jaar, 2018, zware en vernietigende aardbevingen kunnen verwachten.

    In de hieronder geplaatste video wordt gesteld dat dit het vierde jaar op rij is, waarbij de aarde minder snel om haar as draait. Het zijn minieme verschillen die je als zodanig niet voelt en de verklaring is dan dat dit gebeurt door de aantrekkingskracht van de maan.

    Natuurlijk wordt de maan genoemd, omdat dit lekker vertrouwd klinkt, want wanneer je zegt dat dit komt door een aantal vreemde planeten binnen ons zonnestelsel, dan breekt de paniek uit. 

    Als je verder bedenkt dat het aantal aardbevingen dit jaar al zal uitkomen op het hoogste aantal ooit in de bekende geschiedenis en wetenschappers weten nu al dat er in 2018 veel vooral zware aardbevingen zullen plaatsvinden, dan is duidelijk dat de planeet Nibiru snel naderbij komt.


    xxx

    Als je naar bovenstaande cijfers kijkt van aardbevingen sinds 1997 kijkt en je ziet dat wij ons nu in een bloedrode periode bevinden en ze beginnen nu al met waarschuwen voor aardbevingen volgend jaar, dan is er iets meer aan de hand dan de aantrekkingskracht van de maan. In twintig jaar tijd van 16.469 aardbevingen per jaar naar 112.201 in 2016 en dit jaar naar alle waarschijnlijkheid nog hoger.

    Supervulkanen, waarvan de meeste niet eens wisten dat ze bestonden, komen allemaal plotseling tot leven:

    Zo zijn er nu volop in het nieuws de berichten dat supervulkanen weer opnieuw tot leven komen.

    Niet alleen in de Verenigde Staten (Yellowstone), maar ook in Italië (bijna Napels) en Noord Korea zijn de afgelopen tijd supervulkanen tot veler verrassing actief geworden. Wetenschappers van het gerenommeerde Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) van de NASA hebben nu nieuw bewijs gevonden dat het afbreken van stukken ijs van Antarctica niet wordt veroorzaakt door klimaatopwarming door CO2, maar door een enorme geothermische hittebron, die bijna de omvang heeft van de Yellowstone supervulkaan, en die het ijs van binnenuit smelt. Daarmee zijn alle tientallen miljarden euro’s kostende maatregelen om in Nederland de CO2-uitstoot terug te dringen nog zinlozer dan ze al waren.

    De geothermische hittebron is een ‘mantelpluim’, een hete ‘pilaar’ van onderaardse gesmolten rotsen die door de aardmantel heen tot pal onder het oppervlakte omhoog steekt. De mantelpluim zelf werd al eerder ontdekt en bevindt zich in Mary Byrd Land. Dat deze waarschijnlijk verantwoordelijk is voor het ‘ademeffect’ op delen van Antarctica, en het afbreken van grote stukken ijs –zowel nu als 11.000 jaar geleden-, is echter nieuw.

    Dr. Harrington, Sitchin en Muñoz wisten dat er een onbekende planeet bestond en zij hebben hun uiterste best gedaan om ons te waarschuwen. Helaas is de mensheid nogal geneigd de fabeltjes van de elite te geloven die ons vertellen dat we braaf moeten doorwerken, terwijl zij de laatste hand leggen aan hun riante schuilkelders in veilige gebieden.

    Science and Religion Agree on Age of Purported Tomb of Jesus

    While it used to be politics and religion, more and more people now agree that two things you shouldn’t bring up at family gatherings are science and religion. That’s because science and religion don’t seem to agree on too many things. Good news for those wondering what they’ll be talking about at Christmas parties … there’s a new discovery that both science and religion fans can agree on. Researchers studying the limestone cave that is the purported tomb of Jesus at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem have determined that it dates back much further than once thought and supports the story of its original enshrinement by the Romans. Discuss amongst yourselves.

    The research results were released this week by National Geographic. The tomb, said by believers to be where the Romans laid the body after crucifixion, was covered with a marble shield since at least 1555 CE and was only opened in October of 2016. One of the things found was a mysterious older slab. Parts of it and the mortar used to hold it in place were analyzed and dated, and the results were surprising.

    Some of the mortar samples taken from the south wall of the cave date to around 335 CE. That coincides with the stories that Constantine, the first Christian emperor of Rome, ordered a search for the tomb. It was allegedly underneath a 200-year-old Roman temple which was destroyed, revealing a limestone cave that could be the tomb. This new evidence indicates that the slab was used to seal the tomb and the first Edicule or shrine was built over it. That shrine was damaged by fire and earthquakes and eventually destroyed in 1009 by the Fatimid caliph Al-Hakim bi-Amr Allah. Other mortar samples found date to the reconstruction shortly after this.

    Now it’s time for the arguments. Does this new mortar evidence cement the idea that this is the actual tomb of Jesus? Not really. It does show that the location was considered to be the tomb in the fourth century and the belief was strong enough to cover it with a temple, not to mention start many battles.

    While the cave will continue to be studied, the real issue today is the condition of the Edicule. It was reconstructed in 1808-1810 after being destroyed by fire and it’s in poor condition due to both age and the amount of activity around it. It sounds like the solution is hidden inside this new discovery … mortar.

    Discuss amongst yourselves.

    US Military Testing Mood-Altering Brain Implants on Soldiers

    Mood-altering brain implants.

    What part of that sounds good? Throw in “US military,” and “testing on soldiers” and you have the plot of a dystopian movie. Unfortunately, you also have news this week that this is real and tests have already begun. Does the fact that it’s purported purpose is to eventually treat mental disorders that no other therapies can help make you feel any better?

    While this type of brain implant has been discussed for years, previous attempts to alter moods with implanted computer chips have failed. That’s not the case with these latest experiments, according to a new report in the journal Nature on a presentation made by researchers last week at the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) meeting in Washington DC. Two different projects are being funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for the purpose of providing new and more effective treatment for treating soldiers and veterans with severe depression or post-traumatic stress disorder.

    Neuroscientist Edward Chang from the University of California, San Francisco, heads the team that is mapping the brain activities caused by moods and mood changes in six epileptics. The map will allow them to create a chip with an algorithm that recognizes oncoming mood shifts and sends signals to control them. Chang claims they’ve already tested this brain stimulation on humans.

    The second team from Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston is mapping the brain activity related to behaviors in people with multiple mental disorders. Their goal is to use the maps to develop algorithms to recognize problem behaviors (like distraction) caused by the illnesses and deliver brain stimulations to direct the person to more appropriate behaviors. They are currently looking for test subjects.

    The researchers feel that this new type of mood and behavior altering via chip implants will work where others have failed because the mapping will allow them to personalize and pinpoint the electrical stimulations. On the downside, they still need a way to precisely measure the brain impulses so they don’t over-stimulate the person into states of extreme happiness or worse mental illness.

    This all sounds wonderful and promising … until you remember that this is a government project intended to be used on soldiers. What else will this “window into the brain” allow the brain stimulators to control or modify? What else will be seen through this brain-mapping window? It’s not monitoring thoughts … yet. It’s not changing behaviors not linked to mental disorders … yet. It’s not collecting data to be sold to businesses, insurance companies, financial institutions, schools and other organizations … yet.

    Are you ready to have one of these chips implanted in your brain? If you’re in the military, will you be given a choice? If you’re a civilian and have a mental disorder and other treatments have failed, will you be given a choice?

    Is this the plot of a movie … or a government?

    We Went To The Moon But We Had Help!

    There are rumors that we went to the moon but we had help, besides it seems the landings filmed by Stanley Kubrick were staged to cover what they really encountered on the moon: reptilians, bases, buildings, machines for mineral exploration and much more.

    Lunar Anomaly.

    Now, once again, an out of the place lunar anomaly has been discovered by Streetcap1 in one of NASA’s Unmanned Lunar Orbiter photographs taken last year around December.

    According to Streetcap1 the shadow seems to indicate right angles and parallel lines which could be an indication that the anomaly is some sort of building. The scale is 0.56 meters/pixel. So it's huge.

    So if the landings were staged to cover-up what they really encountered on the moon then could it be possible that the discovery of the lunar anomaly is such a building, a construction built by an intelligent alien race in the past?

    Obviously, it cannot be proven whether the lunar anomaly is a building or not but we may wonder whether the moon landings indeed were staged if you listen to the interview that Project Camelot had with Fred, a 90 year old former technical inspector in Aviation working for an Airline back in the 60's. During the interview Fred recalls how he stumbled on a hangar in Michigan that appeared to be at least one staging hangar for the faked part of the Apollo Moon Landings, see second video.

    Turkish University Has a Major in Ufology and ET Encounters

    “I’m majoring in Ufology.”

    If I heard a young person say this, my first thought would be that they’re on the football team and the “Science of Daydreaming” classes were full. However, if the young person showed an acceptance letter from Akdeniz University in Turkey, they’re telling the truth and their parents are in for a big surprise.

    Ufology? Only if there’s no term papers.

    Erhan Kolbaşı told the Doğan News Agency that he offering the class because he wants students to be prepared for contact with extraterrestrials, including knowing the ins and outs of alien politics and galactic diplomacy. It’s nice that he’s preparing these young minds for diplomacy rather than warfare, even though he sees this contact leading to the “biggest change seen in the history of the world.”

    What qualifies Erhan Kolbaşı to teach this program? He’s the deputy chair of the Sirius UFO Space Sciences Research Centerin Istanbul, which was founded by ufologist Haktan Akdoğan, who is also the founder of the Istanbul UFO Museum and will help provide background material for the courses. According to the Doğan News Agency, the course is supposed to train students on the methodology and potential sources for finding UFO and ET information.

    We believe representatives from the world and extraterrestrial civilizations will soon be making official contact with each other. We think they will be in an open and mass contact.

    Kolbaşı says he expects this “open and mass contact” to occur “within 10 or 15 years,” which appears to be a strange prediction since he and Akdoğan both seem to concur that alien contact has already occurred numerous times and will be providing the ufology students with information on cover-ups and secret files.

    Those cover-ups include their beliefs that aliens and crashed UFOs have provided humans with advanced technologies (at least at the time they were found) like fiber optic cables, microchips, night vision glasses and bullet-proof clothing. Details on this information alone would be worth the price of tuition (no tuition costs were given but Akdeniz University is a major college with 31,000 students, so it’s probably comparable to major public colleges in the U.S.) but Kolbaşı also hints that he may not be able to spill all of the secret beans because of MJ-12 or Majestic 12, the alleged secret committee formed by President Harry Truman in 1947 to investigate and collect data on aliens and UFOs, and later to suppress any information on the data.

    Do you think this will be on the test?

    Would you take a class like this if it were offered at one of your local colleges? Even if you weren’t on a football scholarship? Does that guy sitting next to you look like Tom DeLonge? Would you be concerned that the person following you back to the dorm wasn’t a creepy freshman but an MJ-12 agent or a Man in Black?

    Just to be on the safe side, you may want to purposely fail the class.

    AI and Robots Are Hacking Human Sleep

    If you still think all the warnings about the impending robot and artificial intelligence uprising are just paranoia, you’re not paying enough attention. Robots and machine learning networks have been steadily creeping into our lives for years. From manufacturing to self-checkout kiosks at grocery stores to self-driving taxis or long-haul trucks, robots are beginning to perform many tasks that were once the responsibility of humans. That’s not all though – robots and AI are also researching case law for legal firms, analyzing medical data in hospitals, and winning poker tournaments. What’s next?

    We all know whats next.

    We all know what’s next.

    According to recent developments, they’ll be invading our bedrooms next, that’s what. And no, not just for that (although according to most reports, they’re pretty good at it). Robots and artificial intelligence are now beginning to revolutionize the most important activity we engage in while in bed: sleeping. We spend nearly a third of our lives asleep, yet millions of individuals worldwide suffer from various sleep disorders. Why not let a cold, emotionless robot crawl in bed next to soothe you to sleep with its simulated breathing? What could go wrong?

    With a few added features, Somnox could be a one-stop bedroom bot.

    With a few added features, Somnox could be a one-stop bedroom bot.

    A Netherlands-based robotics laboratory has released what they’re calling the “world’s first sleep robot,” called Somnox. Somnox is essentially a bean-shaped stuffed animal with an internal robotic skeleton wrapped in mattress foam that can expand and contract similar to the way living things do as they breathe. The shape of the robot encourages users to spoon and cuddle the faceless monstrosity, which then ‘breathes’ at a soothing rhythm and speed to help “soothe body and mind, helping you feel more relaxed and energized.” The robot can also play a variety of sounds and music, and has a companion mobile app for data collection and control of sleep-inducing audio or music.

    Speaking of which, another laboratory has used artificial intelligence to compose the world’s most effective lullaby. Artificial intelligence firm Jukedeck have developed a neural network capable of analyzing human-created lullabies in order to find the most effective aspects of each. Ed Newton-Rex, the founder and CEO of Jukedeck, says AI can detect the somewhat ‘hidden’ patterns revealed by the types of large-scale musical data analyses of which AI is capable:

    An artificial neural network is essentially a representation of the neurons and synapses in the human brain – and, like the brain, if you show one of these networks lots of complex data, it does a great job of finding hidden patterns in that data. We showed our networks a large body of sheet music, and, through training, it reached the point where it could take a short sequence of notes as input and predict which notes were likely to follow.

    Using this analysis, Jukedeck and partner AXA PPP healthcare of Kent, England have created an AI lullaby claimed to be one of the most effective lullabies for inducing sleep:

    Sure, it’s soothing I guess, but I can’t help but feeling like the overall impression is a bit sterile; it sounds like what you would expect a computer generated melody to sound like. Computers are getting close to being able to produce compelling and moving art, but they’re not quite there yet. It’s only a matter of time, though, before human-generated art has to compete alongside AI-generated art which can take full advantage of human emotional responses much better than humans can.

    Would the addition of a cute face help users get over the creep factor of hugging a robot while you sleep?

    Would the addition of a cute face help users get over the creep factor of hugging a robot while you sleep?

    Will individuals seeking a better night’s sleep take to cuddling robots and listening to AI music? If so, why not build these features into a human-shaped robot? Why not add a personality simulator and artificial intelligence to help it learn your sleep habits better? See where this is going? Somnox might be a cute little cuddle machine, but it’s still a machine. Who knows what kind of doors the adoption of such a robot could open? I know one thing: I’m sewing googly eyes on mine. His name will be Chopstick.

    Scientists program semi-synthetic bacteria to create an ‘alien’ protein that glows green

    Researchers have reached a new milestone in their effort to expand the genetic alphabet of life by designing a strain of E. coli bacteria that creates proteins unlike anything cells can produce naturally.

    The technique, detailed in a paper published today in the journal Nature, could lead to the production of totally new types of protein-based medicines, plastics and biofuels.

    It could also stretch the definition of natural vs. artificial life.

    “I would not call this a new lifeform — but it’s the closest thing anyone has ever made,” study leader Floyd Romesberg, a biochemist at the Scripps Research Institute, said in a news release. “This is the first time ever a cell has translated a protein using something other than G, C, A or T.”

    Those four letters stand for guanine, cytosine, adenine and thymine, chemicals that serve as the alphabet for the coded instructions in DNA molecules. The instructions are used to produce all the amino acids and proteins that cells require for life’s processes.

    Three years ago, Romesberg and his colleagues successfully inserted two other chemicals, dubbed X and Y, into DNA molecules. Since then, the researchers have developed ways for bacteria to store the augmented DNA and pass it along as they reproduced.

    In their newly published paper, the team reports that the six-letter DNA coding could be transcribed into RNA molecules, and then translated into amino acids and proteins that don’t occur naturally.

    The technique was used to customize a set of genetic instructions for manufacturing a variant of green fluorescent protein, or GFP, that incorporated unnatural amino acids. When E. coli bacteria were genetically engineered to include those instructions, the organisms produced the protein, which glowed bright green under ultraviolet light. That signaled that the bacteria could make use of the “alien” DNA.

    “This was the smallest possible change we could make to the way life works — but it is the first ever,” Romesberg said.

    The study also demonstrated that life’s molecular machinery could make use of linkages other than the hydrogen bonds that bind G, C, A and T. The X and Y bases were designed to avoid hydrogen bonds, to make sure they didn’t get mixed up with the other molecular letters.

    That has implications in the search for “weird life” beyond the earthly variety we all know and love.

    “It’s very hard to ask questions about the origins of life. It’s hard to ask questions about why we are the way we are, why we are built the way we are, because we have nothing out there to compare ourselves to,” Romesberg said. “We’ve now given the field a comparison. It’s a small step, but it’s the first successful step.”

    He and his colleagues emphasized that the semi-synthetic organisms couldn’t live or reproduce outside the lab, because the chemicals required for producing the X and Y bases had to be provided externally.

    Romesberg is among the founders of a biotech venture called Synthorx, which is developing protein therapeutics that make use of X and Y.

    In addition to Romesberg, the authors of the Nature paper, titled “A Semi-Synthetic Organism That Stores and Retrieves Increased Genetic Information,” include Yorke Zhang, Jerod Ptacin, Emil Fischer, Hans Aerni, Carolina Caffaro, Kristine San Jose, Aaron Feldman and Court Turner.

    Google Maps Street View reveals grounded 'UFO’ hidden in a forest sparking ALIEN fears

    GOOGLE MAPS has unearthed a grounded ‘UFO’ according to alien hunters who spotted the sign in a forest in Romania.

    Google Maps has often convinced UFO enthusiasts that the signs of extraterrestrial activity are hidden around the world.

    A landing site in Poland was believed to have been an alien landing site until it was revealed as a man-made building.

    Google Maps has revealed a "UFO" to eagle eyed users

    Eagle-eyed viewers have since spotted what appears to be a grounded UFO hidden in a forest of Romania, just outside Timisoara.

    Many think it could be the sign of alien activity.

    The “UFO” appears to be hidden in the trees outside of the city

    The “UFO” appears to be hidden in the trees outside of the city in a deserted part of the city.

    It shows a circular disc with holes that are synonymous with how UFO’s are imagined to look.

    Sadly, on closer inspection it appears to be a simple water tower instead of a vehicle from outer space.

    This didn’t deter online users from poking fun.

    One reviewed it on Google writing: “Amazing. Its Real, Been There And Seen It.”

    It has since been called Alien UFO Resort on the destination on Google Maps.

    Another review didn’t see the funny side and explained: “It is just a water filtering facility built in the architectural style of Wiener Secession.”

    Another sighting of a UFO has previously been spotted in Australia.

    Google Maps has revealed that the UFO is actually an old water tower

    An old triangle was spotted between Badgingarra National Park and Wongonderrah Nature Reserve in the middle of a field.

    Dotted with lights, it was labelled “Black Triangle” on Google Maps and had an eery glow.

    The triangle has since disappeared and is now called “The Hidden Triangle” as users think Google is trying to hide it

    They wrote: “No use trying to hide the evidence.”

    Space boffins stunned as 'UFO' spotted on the MOON

    FOOTAGE has emerged of an unexplainable object on the surface of the moon paving the way for wild speculation from baffled observers.

    By Callum Hoare 

    Martin Mikuaš, a self-proclaimed UFO expert spotted the unusual activity on the moon on Monday.

    It looks like a spaceship or is it only mountain or something else?

    Martin Mikuaš

    Martin said: “Today I was filming [the] moon and this shape I found on the surface.

    "It looks like a spaceship or is it only mountain or something else?

    “I watched my old records and ... a year ago when I was filming [the] moon this shape was not there.

    “What is it that appeared on the Moon and how long is it there?”

    SG

    PUZZLING: Is this shape proof of extraterrestrial life?

    Viewers agreed that the video sparks some worrying questions.

    One suggested: “Aliens and their cruise destroyers ready to shut down EARTH.”

    While another explained that she had also seen unusual activity. 

    “I need your camera so I can show you what I see.... On the moon and around and metallic spheres.”

    Recently there has been a spike in reports of alien activity.

    Just yesterday, viewers claimed to have spotted an extra-terrestrial on Google Maps.

    And earlier this month a mysterious white UFO was allegedly spotted on NASA footage.

    The UAE Released a VR Tour of the First City on Mars

    IN BRIEF
    The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has released a virtual reality tour of the City of Wisdom, their vision of humanity's first settlement on Mars. The UAE has announced they intend to establish the first colony on the red planet by 2117.

    You’ve reached Mars, and the first stop on your tour of the Red Planet is a small hangar, done up in chrome and brown and rust. Here, you are welcomed by a holographic emissary before departing in your hovering spherical craft: “On behalf of the United Government of Mars, I would like to welcome you to your second home.”

    Outside, massive, insectile robot excavators pound away at the dusty red-brown soil to form roads and dig the foundations of new buildings. In no time, a red dome appears on the horizon: the City of Wisdom, humanity’s first settlement on Mars. Complete with laboratories, a University, green spaces, flowing architecture, and 600,000 permanent residents, this is Mars 2117 — the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) vision for the future of our nearest planetary neighbor — and you can explore it yourself in full virtual reality.

    Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, announced earlier this year that the Emirates would lead an effort to establish the first international settlement on Mars by 2117. The country plans to work with scientists from around the globe to develop technology that makes traveling to and living on Mars possible. In September, the Dubai Media Office announced their plan to build a simulated Mars colony in the Emirati desert to develop the food, energy, and water systems that could support future settlers of the Red Planet.

    If all goes according to plan, the UAE plans to send their first probe to Mars by 2021. In doing so, they join a tight race to put the first boots in the planet’s red dust. That race includes the United States’ NASA, aerospace technology giants SpaceX, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin, the Chinese government, and private ventures like Mars One.

    Until those boots touch down, we’ll just have to explore the City of Wisdom and wait.

    SpaceX's Big Mars Rocket Could Help Chase Down Interstellar Asteroid

    There may be yet another future use for SpaceX's huge Mars-colonization rocket.

    That rocket, called the BFR, could launch a probe toward 'Oumuamua, the interstellar asteroid that zoomed past Earth last month, a new study suggests.

    The 1,300-foot-long (400 meters) 'Oumuamua is currently speeding away from us at about 58,160 mph (93,600 km/h, or 26 km/s). That's far faster than any spacecraft has ever traveled upon escaping Earth (though some have gone faster as they approached big bodies, such as the sun). But a mission employing the in-development BFR, with speed-boosting flybys of Jupiter and the sun, could theoretically chase 'Oumuamua down, the study said. ['Oumuamua: An Interstellar Visitor Explained in Photos]

    This potential architecture is based on concepts drawn up by researchers at the Keck Institute for Space Studies (KISS) and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), both of which are in Pasadena, California, the study's authors noted.

    "The KISS Interstellar Medium study computed that a hyperbolic excess velocity of 70 km/s was possible via this technique, a value which achieves an intercept at about 85 AU in 2039 for a 2025 launch," the authors wrote in the study, one version of which was published on the site Centauri Dreams. (AU is short for "astronomical unit," the distance from Earth to the sun, which is about 93 million miles, or 150 million km. And "hyperbolic excess velocity" just refers to the spacecraft's speed.)

    "More-modest figures can still fulfill the mission, such as 40 km/s with an intercept at 155 AU in 2051," the authors added. "With the high approach speed, a hyper-velocity impactor to produce a gas 'puff' to sample with a mass spectrometer could be the serious option to get in-situ data."

    Such a mission would really round out the reusable BFR's portfolio. SpaceX already envisions using the giant rocket — along with its paired spaceship — for all manner of tasks, including launching satellites, carrying people on superfast point-to-point journeys around the globe and cleaning up space junk.

    But the BFR is not the only option for an 'Oumuamua mission, the study authors wrote. Tiny, laser-propelled sail craft, like the ones the $100 million Breakthrough Starshot project aims to launch to other star systems, could do the job as well. (But a 2025 launch date for a sail-craft swarm is unrealistic; the Starshot team has estimated the probes may be ready for prime time in 20 years or so if everything goes well.)

    "An important result of our analysis is that the value of a laser-beaming infrastructure from the Breakthrough Initiatives' Project Starshot would be the flexibility to react quickly to future unexpected events, such as sending a swarm of probes to the next object like 1I/'Oumuamua," the new study said. (The "1I" in front of 'Oumuamua references the object's official scientific designation: 1I/2017 U1.)

    "With such an infrastructure in place today, intercept missions could have reached 1I/'Oumuamua within a year," they added.

    Even if an 'Oumuamua mission never comes to pass, astronomers could still get an up-close look at a visitor from another solar system in the not-too-distant future: Such interstellar interlopers may zoom through the inner solar system as often as every year or so, scientists have said. (But spotting them appears to be a tall order, given that 'Oumuamua is the first one we've ever identified.)

    The new study was conducted by researchers with Project Lyra, which aims to assess the feasibility of a mission to rendezvous with or fly by 'Oumuamua. You can read the short version of the study on Centauri Dreams or the more detailed one on the online preprint site arXiv.org.

    Experts reveal the best-kept secret of the mysterious Easter Island Civilization

    A team of anthropologists came to the conclusion that the inhabitants of the remote Easter Island, the Rapanui, had no contact with the outside world until the arrival of the Europeans on the island in 1722.

    The results of the study were published in the specialized journal Current Biology.

    The study also points out that if there were cultural contacts between the Rapanui and the South American native peoples, “there is no trace of them” in their genes.

    During the experiment, the researchers analyzed the DNA sequences extracted from the remains that are conserved of five individuals, three of which date from the XIV-XV centuries and the other two from people born between the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

    Each bone fragment provided the researchers with about 200 milligrams of genetic material.

    According to the person in charge of the study, Lars Fehren-Schmitz, of the University of California in Santa Cruz (USA), the scientists were “really surprised” by this discovery.

    “Our information suggests that the American Indian heritage present today in the people of Easter Island was not present on the island before contact with Europeans and therefore may be due to more recent events in history,” said professor Fehren-Schmitz.

    He stressed that “we were convinced that we would find direct evidence of a pre-European contact with South America, but we did not”.

    According to Fehren-Schmitz, this discovery sheds light on the evolution and human genetic diversity.

    However, scientists could not determine when the first contact that altered the genome of modern Pascuenses occurred.

    At present, the DNA of the inhabitants of the island shows between 6% and 8% of genetic material coming from indigenous people.

    For this reason, the researcher stressed that his team plans to continue studying in this direction to determine more precisely how and when this gene entry from the continent occurred and from where it originated.

    “The dynamics of the population of these regions is fascinating, we need to study the ancient populations of other islands, if they exist,” he said.

    He also added that slavery, whaling and mass deportations are activities that could explain this genetic fingerprint.

    It is estimated that the Rapanui arrived on Easter Island – located more than 2,000 kilometers from the nearest inhabited island – in the second century of our era.

    Some anthropologists believe that this civilization – the creator of the massive Moai statues, which are the main tourist attraction on the island – is more related to pre-Columbian peoples than to inhabitants of other islands in the region.

    More than 900 moai statues sculpted by the ancient rapa Nui are distributed throughout the island.

    Most of them were carved from the Rano Raraku volcanic cone, where more than 400 moai remain in different phases of construction.

    The historical data of the entire development of the various construction techniques was developed on the island between 700 AD and 1600 AD.

    Everything indicates that the quarry was suddenly abandoned and half-carved statues were left in the rock.

    Probing the Hubble Ultra Deep Field

    Astronomers used an instrument called MUSE to conduct the deepest-ever spectroscopic survey. The result was a bonanza of new knowledge.

    Here’s the Hubble Ultra Deep Field region, as observed with the MUSE instrument installed at the Very Large Telescope of the European Southern Observatory in northern Chile. MUSE data provide a rainbow-like spectrum for each pixel in this picture. Image via ESO/ MUSE HUDF collaboration.

    Sometimes, astronomy is about surveying widely to get the big picture. And sometimes it’s about looking more and more deeply. First released in 2004, the Hubble Ultra Deep Field is clearly about going deep. It’s a composite image of a tiny region of space, located in the direction of the southern constellation Fornax, made from Hubble Space Telescope data gathered over several months. There are an estimated 10,000 galaxies in the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, which exist as far back in time as 13 billion years ago (between 400 and 800 million years after the Big Bang). Being able to see galaxies so near the beginning of our universe has been a fantastic tool for understanding how the universe has evolved. And now – thanks to an instrument called MUSE (Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer), astronomers have been able to eke out yet more information – a veritable bonanza of information – from the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. Their work is being published today (November 29, 2017) in a series of 10 papers in a special issue of the peer-reviewed journal Astronomy & Astrophysics.

    MUSE does more than just see the galaxies. It also splits their light into its component colors, using a technique that astronomers call spectroscopy. In the image above, a team of astronomers led by Roland Bacon of the Centre de recherche astrophysique de Lyon, France, used MUSE to obtain a rainbow-like spectrum for each pixel in the Hubble Ultra Deep Field.

    These astronomers said this work involved:

    the deepest spectroscopic observations ever made.

    They obtained spectra for 1,600 galaxies in the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. That’s 10 times as many galaxies as has been painstakingly obtained in this field over the last decade by ground-based telescopes. Roland Bacon said:

    MUSE can do something that Hubble can’t — it splits up the light from every point in the image into its component colours to create a spectrum. This allows us to measure the distance, colors and other properties of all the galaxies we can see — including some that are invisible to Hubble itself.

    Jarle Brinchmann, lead author of one of the papers describing results from this survey, from the University of Leiden in the Netherlands and the Institute of Astrophysics and Space Sciences at CAUP in Porto, Portugal, commented:

    MUSE has the unique ability to extract information about some of the earliest galaxies in the universe — even in a part of the sky that is already very well studied. We learn things about these galaxies that is only possible with spectroscopy, such as chemical content and internal motions — not galaxy by galaxy but all at once for all the galaxies!

    Among other results, MUSE revealed 72 galaxies never seen before in this very tiny area of the sky. These galaxies wouldn’t have been obvious to Hubble. They’re members of a perplexing group of galaxies known as Lyman-alpha emitters. They shine only in Lyman-alpha light (produced when electrons in hydrogen atoms drop from the second-lowest to the lowest energy level). These objects become noticeable in MUSE data because MUSE disperses the light into its component colors. Meanwhile, in direct images such as those from the Hubble Space Telescope, these galaxies remain invisible. Why do these galaxies shine in this peculiar way? Astronomers don’t fully know.

    The work also revealed luminous hydrogen halos around galaxies in the early universe. The astronomers said this discovery offers:

    … a new and promising way to study how material flows in and out of early galaxies.

    Other potential applications of this dataset are explored in the series of papers, including a study of the role of faint galaxies during cosmic reionization (starting just 380,000 years after the Big Bang), galaxy merger rates when the universe was young, galactic winds, star formation and the mapping the motions of stars in the early universe.

    Roland Bacon pointed out that the data for all of this work were obtained prior to an upgrade to MUSE’s Adaptive Optics Facility (AOF). He said:

    The activation of the AOF after a decade of intensive work by ESO’s astronomers and engineers promises yet more revolutionary data in the future.

    From MUSE’s website: “Looking like a machine straight out of the movie The Matrix, with its Medusa-like hoses and connections, MUSE is the latest of the 2nd-generation instruments to be installed on Yepun (UT4), the fourth Unit Telescope of the Very Large Telescope at the Paranal Observatory.”

    Bottom line: Astronomers used an instrument called MUSE to peer toward the area of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field and to conduct the deepest-ever spectroscopic survey. The result? A bonanza of new knowledge!

    MIT researchers design forest domes for Mars colonists

    A multidisciplinary MIT project promises to offer Mars colonists safe, sustainable, efficient, and comfortable housing. The project won the Mars City Design competition which focuses on creating sustainable habitats for Mars colonists.

    The MIT team won first place for urban design with the Redwood Forest, a series of woodsy habitats enclosed in open, public domes that would reside on the Martian surface.

    Image credits: Valentina Sumini.

    The domes can house as many as 50 people, offering them not only a place to sleep but also open space with plants and water coming from Mars’ Northern Plains. Everything will be built upon a network of underground tunnels called roots, which not only connect different domes but also protect colonizers from cosmic radiation, extreme thermal changes, or micrometeorite impacts.

    In total, the domes could host a city of 10,000 colonists. The city will “physically and functionally mimic a forest,” as every dome will manage solar energy and water in a tree-like fashion.

    Every tree habitat in Redwood Forest will collect energy from the sun and use it to process and transport the water throughout the tree, and every tree is designed as a water-rich environment. Water fills the soft cells inside the dome providing protection from radiation, helps manage heat loads, and supplies hydroponic farms for growing fish and greens,says MIT doctoral student George Lordos, who was also involved with the project.

    Redwood Forest is filled with domes, or what the team calls tree habitats.

    Credits: Valentina Sumini.

    MIT postdoc Valentina Sumini was the leader of the project. She says that the aim of the project isn’t only to build a functional and sustainable environment, but also one that would be comfortable.

    On Mars, our city will physically and functionally mimic a forest, using local Martian resources such as ice and water, regolith (or soil), and sun to support life. Designing a forest also symbolizes the potential for outward growth as nature spreads across the Martian landscape. Each tree habitat incorporates a branching structural system and an inflated membrane enclosure, anchored by tunneling roots. The design of a habitat can be generated using a computational form-finding and structural optimization workflow developed by the team. The design workflow is parametric, which means that each habitat is unique and contributes to a diverse forest of urban spaces.

    That last part means that similar designs and approaches could also be used for other purposes, including here on Earth. For instance, the tree habitat design could create comfortable working spaces in harsh environments such as the Arctic, barren deserts, or the seafloor. The underground network system could provide easy local transport for electric vehicles, while hydroponic gardening beneath cities could provide fresh fish, fruits, and vegetables with lower land and transportation costs, an idea which is already picking up steam in many cities of the world.

    NASA’s new 2020 rover will look a lot like Curiosity but with some important tweaks

     BY TIBI PUIU

    Just a few years from now, NASA expects to land a new rover mission on the red planet. The Mars 2020 mission will feature a rover which is very similar in terms of specs and appearance to its predecessor, the Curiosity rover. There will be some marked improvements, however, that will make landing the rover safer but also enhance its alien-life-hunting features, which is the mission’s main objective.

    Landing a 2,000-pound science experiment on wheels more than 55 million miles away is quite the achievement in itself. In a maneuver that had never been tried before on another planet, a rocket-powered sky crane lowered Curiosity to the Martian surface on cables, then flew off and crash-landed intentionally a safe distance away.

    Since it first touched down on Martian soil in 2012, Curiosity has provided researchers with a trove of data and new science. Thanks to Curiosity, we now have a far clearer and accurate image of the Martian environment including its radiation levels, geology, soil chemical composition, and much more. It has beamed back high-resolution photos of ancient streambeds and drilled martian rocks on site, around Mars’ 96-mile-wide (154 kilometers) Gale Crater. Here, the rover found evidence that a nearby area known as Yellowknife Bay was part of a lake that could have supported microbial life.

    Big wheels to fill

    The upcoming Mars 2020 mission aims to further Curiosity’s legacy. Much of it will be, in fact, based on Curiosity, with about 85 percent of the new rover’s mass being based on “heritage hardware” — system designs and spare hardware employed by Curiosity.

    “The fact that so much of the hardware has already been designed—or even already exists—is a major advantage for this mission,” said Jim Watzin, director of NASA’s Mars Exploration Program. “It saves us money, time and most of all, reduces risk.

    Of course, there will also be new cutting-edge tech onboard, like instruments designed to identify biosignatures on a microbial scale. A ground-penetrating radar will now be able to ‘see’ under the surface of Mars, mapping layers of rock, water, and ice up to 10 meters (30 feet) deep. The rover will also feature new imaging equipment including color cameras and a zoom lens. To top things off, a laser will vaporize rocks and soil to analyze their chemistry.

    Our next instruments will build on the success of MSL, which was a proving ground for new technology,said George Tahu, NASA’s Mars 2020 program executive.These will gather science data in ways that weren’t possible before.

    For the mission, NASA plans to drill at least 20 rock cores, possibly up to 40, and return them to Earth. These samples might help answer one of the most important questions on scientists’ minds right now: Are we alone in the Universe?

    NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is also working on new landing tech, like terrain-relative navigation. As the descent stage carrying the 2020 rover approaches the Marian surface, instruments will compare what they ‘see’ with pre-loaded terrain maps such that the rover is guided to its landing site as safely as possible. Another related tech called the range trigger uses location and velocity to determine the optimal time to fire the spacecraft’s parachute.

    Terrain-relative navigation enables us to go to sites that were ruled too risky for Curiosity to explore,said Al Chen of JPL, the Mars 2020 entry, descent and landing lead.The range trigger lets us land closer to areas of scientific interest, shaving miles—potentially as much as a year—off a rover’s journey.”

    We don’t exactly where Mars 2020 will land but we will likely soon find out by the end of next year. In February, the potential drop sites were narrowed down from eight to three: an ancient lakebed called Jezero Crater; Northeast Syrtis, where warm waters may have chemically interacted with subsurface rocks; and possible hot springs at Columbia Hills. All of these sites are varied and very different from Gale Crater, but they all have great potential for finding signs of past or present alien life.

    In the coming years, the 2020 science team will be weighing the advantages and disadvantages of each of these sites,Farley said.It is by far the most important decision we have ahead of us.

    What was the Indus Valley Civilization: the forgoten superpower of the ancient world

    BY ALEXANDRU MICU

    One of the most advanced and mysterious ancient peoples, the Indus River Valley civilization, was completely lost to history until the 1920s.

    Stupa mound and Great Bath in Mohenjo daro.

    The ruins of Mohenjo daro (“Hill of the Dead”), one of the jewels of the Indus Valley Civilization and the ancient world.

    Some five millennia ago, a people settling the lands between today’s Afganistan, northwest India, and Pakistan rose to the forefront of civilization, knowledge, and sophistication at the time. The echoes of their achievements still awe us to this day, showing a level of civilization almost unimaginable for a people that had, ultimately, risen directly from the Stone Age.

    But this beacon of antiquity crumbled and was forgotten, likely under the weight of issues that fall worryingly close to those of today: food and water insecurity powered by climate change.

    1. Who were the Harappans?

    The Indus River Valley civilization, also known as the Harappan civilization after the first site of their discovery, is a Bronze Age culture that spanned roughly from 3300 to 1300 BC. It stood toe to toe with the three other ancient heavyweights of the world — Egypt, Mesopotamia, and ancient China — often surpassing their scientific achievements; out of the four ancient cradles of civilization, the people of the Indus Valley could claim to be the largest and arguably most prosperous.

    Their success was built on a solid agricultural base (they grew various crops, from dates to cotton) and cutting-edge technologies, including indoor plumbing, sophisticated city-planning and public sewage systems, breakthroughs in crafting techniques, writing, and one of the most advanced understandings of metallurgy at the time. They also seem to have been a peaceful people; despite their skill with metal, we’ve found strikingly few Harappan weapons. Not the same thing can be said about their children’s toys, however, of which they seemingly couldn’t get enough of, both in quantity and variety.

    The Harappans are one of the most mysterious groups to, tragically, never truly ma ke it out of antiquity. Despite its status as an economic, technological, and social powerhouse, the Harappan civilization simply fell apart in a span of two or three centuries. The reasons as to why this happened are still a subject of passionate debate and they may be more relevant now than ever before.

    2. Discovery

    Ten Indus Scripts.

    Image via Wikipedia.

    In 1856, British colonial officials in India were busy overseeing railway construction efforts between the cities of Lahore and Karachi (today part of Pakistan), right along the valley of the Indus River. Digs performed as part of this building effort stumbled upon an incredible stash of artifacts — hundreds of thousands of fire-baked bricks, buried in the dry terrain. They looked quite old, but some were nevertheless used for the railway’s track ballast or its roadbed. Soon, exquisitely-carved soapstone (steatite) artifacts were also making an appearance throughout the bricks. Unwittingly, these workers had unearthed the first slivers of a civilization lost in the depths of time.

    Despite the sheer size of the discovery, major excavations didn’t start until much later. This is quite vexing, as the first recorded notes regarding the civilization come from 1826, penned by a British army deserter named James Lewis/Charles Masson, who noticed the presence of mounded ruins at a small local town called Harappa while posing as an American engineer. Partly, this lag came down to archaeologists assuming the bricks and ruins were crafted during the Maurya Empire, which dominated India between 322 and 185 BCE. It was only after excavation works started at the site in 1920 under John Marshall, then the director of the Archaeological Survey of India, that it became clear they were dealing with another culture altogether.

    The newly re-discovered civilization would receive its name from this site at Harappa, and pushed the known history of India back by at least 1500 years. In the meantime, archaeologists have scrambled to understand the Indus River Valley civilization — but we’ve been able to confirm frustratingly little from all we’ve found.

    3. Size and origin

    Late Harappan.

    The Harappans seem to hail from a town named Mehgarh, nestled in the foothills of a mountain pass in today’s western Pakistan. Evidence points to human habitation in the area as far back as 7000 BC. Archaeologists have broken their evolution down into three steps or phases:

    • Early Harappan from 3300 to 2600 BC,
    • Mature Harappan from 2600 to 1900 BC, towards the end of which the civilization starts going into decline, and
    • Late Harappan from 1900 to 1300 BC, marked by violence, breakdowns in social order, the abandonment of most settlements, and the eventual extinction of the Indus Valley people.

    But when things were going well for the Harappans, they were really good. So far, more than 1,052 Harappan cities and settlements have been found, mainly in the general region of the Indus River and its tributary rivers. At their peak, they are estimated to have numbered five million souls.

    4. Culture, language, and beliefs

    One of the reasons why we can’t figure the Harappans out that well is their writing. We know they had a kind of writing, because we found some of their texts, etched on clay and stone tablets dated between 3300-3200 BC, at Harappa. They appear to have been written right to left in a script which we, unfortunately, don’t understand. The symbols resemble plant and trident-like shapes and are completely unlike anything we’ve ever seen. This has led many researchers to believe that Harappan script evolved independently of those in Mesopotamia, Egypt, or China.

    It also means that we don’t actually know any Harappan names, the name of their cities, or what they called themselves. We refer to them by names we ourselves have given them — just something to keep in mind as you read further on.

    Indus script.

    In the absence of any known names or words, without any bi-lingual texts or clear cultural ties to compare or infer from, it’s nigh-impossible to understand the script of a dead language. But it does have the hallmarks of a language, researchers have found, a conclusion that is sure to goad curiosity further.

    At this point, we can say that the Indus script seems to have statistical regularities that are in line with natural languages,” said Rajesh Rao, a University of Washington researcher who led a study in 2009 analyzing if Indus script shows ‘conditional entropy’, a structural semi-predictability that underlies functional languages.

    Indus Valley religion also eludes our understanding. Unlike their Egyptian and Mesopotamian counterparts, the Harappans didn’t build any temples or palaces (that we know of), so we don’t have any evidence pointing to specific deities or their religious practices. However, many of their artifacts (in the form of seals) showcase animals. Some depict them being carried in a ceremony, while others include downright mythological creatures such as unicorns. Thus, some researchers have speculated that religion in the Indus Valley centered, in some way, on animals. Others have suggested that the animals on these seals instead signified one’s membership to a group such as a clan, social class, so forth. Until more evidence is gleaned, neither can be fully supported or refuted.

    We have, however, found ample evidence of Harappan art and culture, including sculptures, seals, pottery, gold jewelry, as well as anatomically detailed figurines in terracotta, bronze, and steatite.

    The evidence points to a flourishing culture, but the lack of writing in particular spells doom for our efforts to understand how these people ruled themselves — legal codes, procedures, and systems of governance, after all, are rooted in written documents. This, again, is especially frustrating, as we’re going to see that the Harappans were extremely adept at ordering and coordinating their society, for the benefits of all those it harbored.

    5. Science and know-how

    One of the most striking features of Harrapan society was their propensity for standardization. Pottery and seals use surprisingly similar proportions. Bricks are virtually identical in size, shape, weight, and material, even among different cities. Weighs used in trading are also virtually identical. The level of standardization is so high, in fact, that some researchers claim it could only be the product of a single state authority enforcing them on all communities in the area. However, the pointed scarcity of weapons makes it more likely that the Indus Valley people were led by a number of leaders representing each major community or cluster of communities, all working together voluntarily. This view is supported by studies on Indus graves and human remains that show everyone enjoyed similar health and a relative scarcity of elite burials — suggesting they had no rulers, as we understand the term, and that everyone enjoyed equal status.

    While most of the Harappan settlements were only villages or small towns, the civilization had several large urban centers. Among those we’ve found are Harappa, Ganeriwala, and Mohenjo-daro in modern-day Pakistan and Dholavira, Kalibangan, Rakhigarhi, Rupar, and Lothal in modern-day India. Out of the lot, Mohenjo-daro became the largest city of the Indus Valley Civilization and holds the multiple distinctions of being one of the world’s first major urban centers, as well as, at the time, one of the most sophisticated cities in the world and a global architectonical and engineering masterpiece.

    The Harappan fire-baked brick was produced and used on a massive scale in construction. Not only were they surprisingly standardized, as we’ve seen, but they’re also strikingly advanced for the time (with sun-baked bricks being the norm).

    The ruins of their major cities show that a lot of effort went into urban planning. Houses, workshops, and trading spots each formed distinct neighborhoods, and cities had well-organized wastewater drainage and trash collection systems, granaries, even public baths. This efficient layout further suggests that local governments were present and of high quality, working with great efficiency and aiming particularly to maintain public hygiene (or possibly, religious ritual).

    Both Harappa and Mohenjo-daro featured citadels, heavily fortified areas thick with defensive structures — a feature other important and well-off cities likely shared. They had administrative (and possibly religious) centers that were also fortified. The walls are speculated to have played a double role, protecting the Harappans both from invasions and floods.

    Another distinctive feature of the Indus people was that they didn’t really build to awe. We know they could build impressive structures, as they show an advanced understanding of architecture with dockyards, granaries, warehouses, and protective walls. But there’s no conclusive evidence of any palaces ever being built here. Neither of temples. In fact, the largest Indus buildings we’ve found so far were likely granaries. The nearest thing we’ve found to a ‘monument’ is in Mohenjo-daro — the Great Bath, a public bathing and social area.

    In addition to architecture and urban theory, Harappans made repeated breakthroughs in metalworking (which was the day’s rocket science), working copper, tin, lead, and bronze, and had skilled craftsman, as shown by their intricate carnelian carvings. They also made important advances in transport technology, being a contender for the “first civilization to use the wheel” prize, in the form of oxcarts that are pretty much identical to those seen today throughout South Asia. Sailing was also, by all evidence, serious business for the Indus, who built boats and sea-worthy ships. This is supported by the discovery of a massive dredged canal and a suspected docking facility in Lothal, on the Indian Ocean’s coast, and the use of seashells in their arts and crafts.

    6. Money and economy

    The Harappans maintained one of the most impressive ancient trade empires and improved transport technologies, maintaining maritime trade networks extending from the Middle East to Central Asia. Evidence for these networks includes Harappian shellwork, found as far as the Arabian Gulf in Oman, as well as seals and jewelry found at archaeological sites in regions of Mesopotamia (today’s Iraq-Kuwait-Syria area). There’s also speculation that Harappian traders traversed long distances over water in ships made of planks, with a single mast and a sail of cloth or woven rushes.

    Ceramics from the area show similarities to those from northern Iran between 4300 and 3200 BC, suggesting trade between these areas during that time. Similarities in pottery, seals, figurines, and ornaments from Central Asia and the Iranian plateau during the Early Harappan suggests land trade was established to these areas during the time.

    Trade focused mostly on securing raw materials which were used to fuel Harappan workshops. Imports included minerals from Iran and Afghanistan, lead and copper from other parts of India, jade from China, and cedar wood floated down rivers from the Himalayas and Kashmir. Other traded items included terracotta pots, processed metals, gold and silver, tool-grade flints, as well as jewelry and its associated materials: beads, seashells, pearls, and colored gemstones, such as lapis lazuli and turquoise.

    7. Decline

    By around 1800 BC, the Indus Valley Civilization was starting to crack. A widely-accepted theory is that they fell to a nomadic Indo-European tribe called Aryans, which invaded and subsequently conquered the Harappians. Evidence in support of this comes from the fact that cities were being abandoned at the time and an increase in the apparent incidence of violence and violent death — which both fit with what you’d expect to see in a war zone.

    More recent evidence, however, contradicts this theory. Some experts believe that the collapse was caused by climate change. By 1800 BC, the whole area grew colder and drier, and it’s suspected that tectonic movements in the area heavily disrupted or diverted the rivers on which the Harappans relied. The drying of the Saraswati River, which began around 1900 BC, is believed to be a major driver of these local changes. Combined with monsoon-associated periods of flooding and drought, these changes in river patterns splintered the once-monolithic block of the Indus Valley Civilization.

    Farmers fled eastwards, towards the basin of the Ganges. While the river allowed them to re-establish villages and farms, these communities could not dream to produce the same agricultural surplus as the Indus River basin and the refined irrigation systems built there. Faced with starvation, large cities tore themselves apart or vacuated for rural settings. Without their craftsmen, trade with Egypt and Mesopotamia shriveled and then ended altogether.

    This latter theory is supported by the presence of Indus Civilization elements in later cultures, called Harappan cultures, more in line with a slow decline than a fast disappearance at sword-point.

    Whatever the reason, by around 1700 BCE, most of the Indus Valley Civilization cities had been abandoned. With them, the Harappan people’s stars waned, never to recover.

    ALIEN MESSAGE TO MANKIND: "DO YOU WISH THAT WE SHOW UP?"

    Analyzing the thousands of documents through which contacts with extraterrestrial beings have been verified, it can be deduced that there are five types of messages that "they" want to spread:

    THE FIRST

    Ecology: Space visitors tell their contactees that humanity is corrupting everything, that the seas and oxygen are being contaminated with chemical and industrial toxic waste that atomic bombs endanger life on the planet , usually warn of great dangers if the situation is not corrected, remember the global warming that we are currently suffering.

    THE SECOND  

    Scientist: In many cases, a large number of scientific knowledge has been delivered to humans that are kept secret by governments, mainly the North American and Soviet governments. They also usually send illiterate people to transmit scientific communications to scientists.

    THE THIRD

    Technician: Many contactees have received the knowledge with concrete instructions to build state-of-the-art devices. We should not be surprised when a large number of inventors demand the patent of artifacts whose usefulness we do not yet know and perhaps we never know.

    THE FOURTH

    Cosmogenic: Another type of message is related to the origin of the Universe and the existence of God whom the aliens call The First Cause or The Deep The Supreme Intelligence.

    THE FIFTH:

    Moral: They establish a set of norms of life, curiously usually reinforces the moral or religious beliefs of the contactee by understanding the brotherhood as well as the love among peers asking that the message be disseminated in order to be known by the greater number of people.  

    The original source of this information appears to be by Mr. Jean Ederman, now 49, of France, who evidently works in the field of aviation. He writes: "... after having learned how to mentally project myself to a place in the presence of benevolent extraterrestrials, I received the following message..."

    SCIENTISTS DATE THE TOMB OF CHRIST REVEALING ITS COMPLEX HISTORY

    The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is said to be the place where the body of Jesus Christ was interned following his crucifixion at the hands of the Romans. Now, archaeological examinations of the site suggest that there is a deeply complex history around this holiest of all Christian shrines.  

    A new scientific examination of the site where Jesus is believed to have been laid to rest has utilized chemicals in the limestone making up deepest reaches of the cave to discover how long it had been since the rock had been exposed to light. They found that these oldest areas of the cave were around 1700 years old and that some of the other rock laid on in the cave dated to the era of the Crusades. 

    The New Testament states that Jesus was put to death in the early years of the first millennium and that the Romans located and enshrined his tomb around the year 326 AD. This ambitious project was undertaken by Constantine I, the first Roman emperor to convert to Christianity and declare it to be the official religion of the Roman Empire. Along with his wife, who was also a devout Christian, he ordered a number of projects of this nature as well as the erection of large Christian shrines throughout the entire Empire. This date historical documents suggest that Constantine ordered the enshrinement of Jesus’s tomb tallies up neatly to the age of the layered limestone in the cave uncovered by scientists investigating the site suggesting that this is indeed the tomb of Christ.  

    There has been a great deal of speculation as to whether the real location of Jesus’s tomb had been lost over the years. During the Crusades, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre was completely destroyed and subsequently rebuilt by the Christians in the area. This has led to questions as to whether they truly built on the exact same site as the Romans. Some historians have said that even if they did manage to build on the correct spot, that the Romans may not have located the tomb of Jesus Christ accurately.

    Archaeologists and historians concede that there is no way of telling whether the tomb most definitely held the body of Jesus Christ but it is still considered to be far and away the best candidate. According to Dan Bahat, the former city archaeologist of Jerusalem, "We may not be absolutely certain that the Holy Sepulchre Church is the site of Jesus' burial, but we certainly have no other site that can lay a claim nearly as weighty."  

    Last October, the tomb was opened to the public for the first time in many centuries after the painstaking restoration of the shrine enclosing the tomb which is known as the Edicule. The restoration project took nine months to complete and cost a staggering $4 million.

    FARMING ON MARS? EARTHWORMS THRIVE IN MARS SOIL

    Gardeners on Earth enjoy it when their gardens have sufficient worms to fertilize the plants they grow. However, there are plans to bring these inconspicuous animals to Mars--and there's testing that proves that they'll work on Martian soil.  

    NASA recently carried out an experiment that involved simulated Mars soil, using data collected all the way back from the first unmanned spacecraft. Back when space exploration was in its infancy, probes were sent on a one-way path to planets such as Mars and using technology way beyond its time sent back images and soil composition data to the curious people of Earth.

    Worms were found to improve crops grown in simulated Martian soil .

    The scientist added "rucola" (rocket or arugula) plants, manure, and fertilizer. Once they added the worms, they thrived within the new environment. They performed so well in the simulated soil that they even produced offspring.

    The "soil" used in these experiments technically doesn't follow Earth's definition of what soil is. That's because it contains organic material, while Earth soil consists of non-living materials. Scientists merely use this term as a placeholder in order to distinguish it from another, finer material on Mars known as regolith.

    SIMULATING MARS SOIL IN A LAB  

    Simulated soil has more uses beyond testing whether worms will thrive on Mars: it can be used to figure out how the equipment such as rovers, mining equipment, and spacesuits will be affected by the foreign soil. This is key knowledge as we're considering sending people to Mars in the 2030s, and we don't want them to arrive after their years-long journey to Mars only to find out that their spacesuits and equipment are unfit for the environment.

    Thankfully, the foreign soil can bear plant life such as rucola, so feeding the travelers to Mars isn't such a big problem. Hopefully, by the 2030s NASA will sort everything out, and we'll be able to see Mars firsthand!

    AGARTHA, A SUBTERRANEAN WORLD INSIDE OUR PLANET, CONFIRMED BY TOP SECRET NAZI MAPS AND DOCUMENTS

    Us humans know a lot about the surface of the Earth. We've drilled oil rigs into it, mapped it, and studied it so many times that we can pretty much find out anything about the Earth from some database out there. However, we know very little about the inside of the Earth, a fact that the Nazis think that they have a lead into.  

    Map of Neuschwabenland

    Nazi maps were recently uncovered that brought up questions as to whether the Earth is partially hollow and inhabited by lifeforms that we might have never seen. There are even stories of these Nazis who explored the polar regions of the Earth and going so far as to create secret bases in Antarctica.

    IMPERIAL GERMAN MAPS OF THE HOLLOW EARTH  

    Translation: 

    Maps for the passage of the depths of the seas. Use only during manoeuvers! Instructions to pass spaces and corridors for the voyage to Agartha.

    RELATED ARTICLES

    Beyond the Nazis, many other researchers have discovered and published material regarding Operation Highjump and Admiral Byrd's journeys in which technologically-advanced airships and UFO were believed to be seen flying around, and even aggressively engaging with them. In addition, a top-secret map found in a U-Boat depicts many secret passages that were used by the U-boats to explore unknown and mysterious underground regions. All these maps indicated that the center of the Earth is hollow. But why have the Nazis kept this a secret for so long? Such a fact would be of great curiosity to man if it were found true.  

    This is a close up of the document showing us the NS Seal and advice on how to work with it.

    " Translation:

    After returning from the assigment hand in at the secret department! IN CASE OF DANGER DESTROY FIRST! Printed for the Military Navy in an edition of 1300 copies at the special laboratory of the KZ Dachau. January 1944.

    Perhaps all this was merely a propaganda scheme made for the war. After all, the Nazis wanted to establish themselves as a master race, and making it look like they had access to underground U-Boat tunnels and that they could communicate with supernatural things such as UFOs would make them look very dominant if that U-Boat were to be captured by the enemy.  

    This map shows us the main continent of this hemisphere named Liberia. The main ocean here again is also the Valkarian Ocean. On the lower part of the map the city of Shambala is depicted. The Tibetan Monks believe that the City of Shambala is not on our surface but on the inside of the Earth. This map of the Inner Earth shows us the actual position of Shambala confirming the actual existence of this mythical place.  

    Or maybe the Nazis wanted to keep this information secret to us in case they ever needed to use it for military needs in the future. Think about it: having access to secret underground tunnels could lead to more efficient and safe travel over enemy waters.  

    This is a letter from a German U Boat crewman of U-209. He says in the letter that U-209 commanded by Heinrich Brodda made it to the Inner Earth of Agharta and that they wouldn't be coming back.  

    "Translation:

    Dear old comrade, This message will be a surprise to you. The U Boat 209 has made it, the Earth is HOLLOW! Dr. Haushofer and Hess were right. The whole crew is doing well, but they cannot come back. We are no prisoners. I am certain, that this message will reach you, it is the last contact with the U 209. We will meet again comrade. I am worried about the people that have to live on the surface, since the Fuehrer is gone.

    God bless our Germany always.

    With hearty greetings,

    Karl Unger

    Whether the Earth is hollow or not, the Nazis have left us quite a puzzle to deal with. Hopefully one day we will take a "Journey to the Center of the Earth" and find out!

    Levende bacteriën uit de ruimte gevonden op ISS. Is buitenaards leven nu dan echt ontdekt?

    Wetenschappers hebben levende bacteriën uit de ruimte aangetroffen op de buitenkant van het Russische deel van het internationale ruimtestation ISS.

    De organismen worden momenteel bestudeerd op aarde, liet kosmonaut Anton Sjkaplerov weten aan persbureau TASS.

    Kosmonauten hebben tijdens ruimtewandelingen monsters verzameld, onder meer op plekken bij de motoren en waar het oppervlak van het ruimtestation het donkerst is. De monsters werden vervolgens naar de aarde gestuurd.

    Uit de ruimte

    “Nu is gebleken dat er bacteriën in de monsters zitten die tijdens de lancering van de module niet aanwezig waren,” zei Sjkaplerov.

    “Ze zijn uit de ruimte gekomen en hebben zich aan de buitenkant van het ruimtestation genesteld,” voegde hij toe.

    De bacteriën worden momenteel bestudeerd en het lijkt erop dat ze geen gevaar vormen, aldus de kosmonaut.

    Per ongeluk

    Sommige aardse bacteriën overleven ook al jaren aan de buitenkant van het ruimtestation, hoewel ze zich in een vacuüm bevinden en worden blootgesteld aan temperaturen die variëren van -150 tot 150 graden Celsius.

    De bacteriën zijn per ongeluk meegenomen naar het ruimtestation op tablets en verschillende materialen die aan boord van het ISS zijn geplaatst om het gedrag ervan in de ruimte te bestuderen.

    Sjkaplerov zal leiding geven aan de nieuwe bemanning van het ruimtestation, die op 17 december wordt gelanceerd.

    Turkse universiteit bereidt studenten voor op buitenaards contact. Deze docent opent de doofpot

    De Akdeniz-universiteit in de Turkse provincie Antalya biedt sinds kort het vak ‘Ufologie en Exopolitiek’, ter voorbereiding op contact met bezoekers uit de ruimte.

    Docent Erhan Kolbasi vertelde aan het Turkse persbureau Dogan News Agency dat hij verwacht dat de mensheid binnen ’10 tot 15 jaar’ contact zal maken met buitenaardse wezens.

    “Wij geloven dat afgezanten van de aarde en buitenaardse beschavingen spoedig officieel contact maken met elkaar,” zei hij.

    Massaal contact

    “Wij denken dat er tegen die tijd openlijk en massaal contact zal zijn,” voegde Kolbasi toe.

    Hij lichtte toe dat het vak onderdeel is van voorbereidingen op de ‘grootste verandering in de geschiedenis van de wereld’.

    Kolbasi claimde ook dat een schimmige groep genaamd MJ12 kennis over buitenaardse wezens onderdrukt om ‘de belangen van de VS te beschermen’.

    Gecrashte UFO’s

    MJ12 is naar verluidt gevormd door president Harry Truman om het volk in het duister te houden over buitenaards contact.

    Dingen als glasvezelkabels, microchips, nachtkijkers en kogelvrije vesten kunnen we alleen maken dankzij de informatie die we hebben gehaald uit gecrashte UFO’s, stelde de docent.

    Exopolitiek zal zich gaan richten op de manier waarop kennis over buitenaardse wezens in de doofpot wordt gestopt door overheden, voorbereiding op open contact en galactische diplomatie.

    YOUTUBE BLOKKEERT KANAAL DAT IETS BIJZONDERS TOONT OP DE MAAN     (VIDEO )


    Als Youtube een populair videokanaal met 80.000 abonnees afsluit vanwege een video die ze hebben gepubliceerd over de maan, dan zijn ze niet erg slim bezig. 

    Want juist door deze blokkade wil iedereen natuurlijk weten wat er zo bijzonder was aan die video. 



    Steeds meer mensen ontwikkelen steeds grotere afkeer tegen Youtube en de manier waarop zij menen bepaalde kanalen te moeten censureren. Natuurlijk is het dweilen met de kraan open, want wanneer mensen worden geblokkeerd op Youtube gaan ze ergens anders naartoe.

    Dit keer is een Youtube kanaal dat bekendstaat onder de naam Crrow777 het slachtoffer, een kanaal dat al jaren in de lucht is en veel opnames plaatst die met een telescoop zijn gemaakt van onze maan. 

    En het is één van die video's die er nu voor heeft gezorgd dat dit kanaal is geblokkeerd. Zoals zo vaak het geval met blokkades door Youtube is er op het eerste oog niets te ontdekken waardoor dit kanaal volgens de richtlijnen van Youtube in aanmerking zou komen voor een blokkade.

    De reden voor de definitieve sluiting door Youtube van dit kanaal heeft maken met één bepaalde video, zoals te zien in de volgende mededeling van het bedrijf.


    xxx

    De video waar het om gaat is inmiddels heel beroemd en staat bekend als de Lunar Wave. De eerste keer dat Crrow777 erin slaagde om dit fenomeen vast te leggen was op 26 september 2012. 

    Het is het resultaat van het jarenlang filmen van de maan met een krachtige telescoop en al die opnames stonden op het Youtube kanaal dat nu is geschrapt.

    De Lunar Wave laat iets zien dat eigenlijk niet kan, een soort golfbeweging over het oppervlak van de maan van onder naar boven. Een effect wat je ook wel ziet als de wind over het water blaast. Men noemt dit in het Engels een ripple effect. Hierdoor lijkt het alsof het maanoppervlak niet solide is, maar bijvoorbeeld vloeibaar als water.

    Deze opname is zo beroemd geworden dat grote mainstream kranten er over hebben geschreven en na de eerste Lunar wave slaagde Crrow777 er op 9 maart 2014 opnieuw in om deze wave vast te leggen.

    Crrow777 is er na jaren van observeren en filmen van de maan door een telescoop van overtuigd dat de maan niet is wat wij denken dat het is. Volgens hem is het niets anders dan een hologram in de lucht en zijn de Lunar waves kleine foutjes in de programmering die dat aantonen.

    De meest voor de hand liggende verklaring zou zijn een mankement aan de opname apparatuur, maar na jaren onderzoek wordt dit door Crrow777 uitgesloten, omdat het effect alleen zichtbaar is op het oppervlak van de maan en niet op de totale opname.

    Daarnaast is ditzelfde effect op het maanoppervlak inmiddels door zo'n 30 andere mensen ook vastgelegd. Hiermee lijkt een technisch mankement uitgesloten.

    Dus, waarom is deze opname kennelijk zodanig gevaarlijk dat er een account met 80.000 abonnees waar eigenlijk alleen maar opnames van de maan op staan, wordt gesloten. Het schijnt nog verder te gaan dan dat, want wanneer mensen nu zoeken op Crrow777 via Youtube of Google worden primair allerlei resultaten getoond die zeggen dat de Lunar wave niet echt is.

    Omdat eigenlijk alles wat er door Crrow777 werd gepubliceerd op Youtube betrekking had op de maan zijn er in de loop der jaren ook divers UFO's "gevangen" door de telescoop. Wellicht dat dit ook een rol speelt bij de blokkade.

    Gelukkig zijn er altijd mensen zoals ook wij, die video's opslaan en/of herpubliceren zodat de beelden op zich niet verloren zijn. De video hierna laat zowel de eerste als de tweede Lunar Wave van Crrow777 zien.



    Of het nu de Lunar wave is die door Crrow777 is vastgelegd, of iets anders dat hij heeft gefilmd op het maanoppervlak, duidelijk is dat er is ingegrepen van hogerhand omdat dit kanaal beelden liet zien die overduidelijk niet voor de gewone burger bedoeld zijn.

    Hierna volgt de analyse van Tyler van Secureteam over deze gebeurtenis en voorlopig is het koren op de molen voor de aanhangers van de platte aarde theorie.

    Huge Christmas Asteroid – Close Enough to Affect Santa’s Ride?

    A three-mile-wide (4.8 km) asteroid is about to make one of its closest approaches ever and become the third-largest NASA-designated “potentially hazardous” object in history to approach the Earth. Not only that, it’s arriving right in the middle of the Christmas season. Will it become a Christmas star, a celestial Grinch that stole Christmas or a hazard that even Rudolph’s nose can’t protect Santa Claus from?

    The history of 3200 Phaethon is interesting and potentially disconcerting. Although it’s been around (and around the Sun) for ages, it was only discovered in 1983 by astronomers Simon F. Green and John K. Davies and visually confirmed by Charles T. Kowal, who determined it to be asteroidal, at least in appearance. Further analysis showed how special this space rock is. 1983 TB (its original name) has an orbit that brings it closer to the Sun than any other named asteroid. That prompted astronomers to name it Phaethon in honor of the son of the Greek sun god Helios. That Phaethon borrowed his father’s sun chariot and drove it without the proper license or training, resulting in him getting too close to burning up Earth and resulting in Zeus tossing a thunderbolt that stopped the chariot and killed Phaethon.

    The Fall of Phaeton by Johann Liss

    That may sound like a long way off, but it’s close enough for the International Astronomical Union’s Minor Planet Center to deem it a potentially hazardous near Earth object, which means its impact could cause serious regional damage and it has the potential and proximity for impact. In fact, 3200 Phaethon is already affecting the Earth in another way. Astronomer Fred Whipple determined that the asteroid’s unusual orbit matches that of meteors that make up the annual mid-December Geminids meteor shower, making Phaethon their proud papa.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah … that’s all very interesting but what about Christmas? Since 3200 Phaethon isn’t visible to the naked eye (although it can be seen this year with low-powered telescopes between December 11 and 21), it’s not the Christmas star. And it doesn’t appear that this is its year for a big impact – and a three-mile-wide asteroid would make a BIG impact. Some estimates suggest a mile-wide asteroid hitting New York City would destroy it and everything else from Washington DC to Boston, not to mention creating a dust cloud capable of blocking the Sun and ending most life on Earth.

    Luckily, it doesn’t look like even the entire collection of naughtiness on Earth is enough to deliver that lump of coal in our stockings this year. We’re safe and so is Santa.

    For now.

    Mystery Surrounds Underwater Castle Found in Turkey

    Earlier this month, a team of archaeologists in eastern Turkey claimed to have discovered the ruins of of a 3,000-year-old castle under the waters of Lake Van. The castle is said to measure over a kilometer in circumference and has cut stone walls standing as high as three or four meters in some places. Diving team leader Tahsin Ceylan was on the dive which found the ruins and told The Daily Sabah that “there was a rumor that there might be something under the water but most archaeologists and museum officials told us that we won’t find anything.” Well, they did find something – something incredible – but just what exactly the structure is and who built it remains a mystery.

    Lake Van is the largest lake in Turkey.

    Lake Van is the largest lake in Turkey.

    When the news of this discovery broke this month, headlines were quick to proclaim that a “3,000-year-old underwater castle” was found in Turkey since researchers from Van Yüzüncü Yıl University claim the structure likely was built by the Iron Age Urartu civilization who lived in the Armenian Highlands as far back as the third or second millennium BC. It turns out, though, that archaeologists have been aware of ruinsin the Lake Van area since at least the 1960s. These ruins were believed around 900-1,000 years old and belong to one of the medieval Turkish kingdoms, however, not a 3000-year-old culture. Several archaeologists not involved with the discovery have weighed in to say that while some of the cut stones might date back to the Iron Age, the construction methods seen in photographs of the castle suggest the medieval period. It is quite common in archaeological sites to find that prior cultures reused the building materials of ancient civilizations.

    So what exactly is at the bottom of Lake Van? Unfortunately, while the dive team behind this “discovery” photographed some type of cut stone structure down there, the site has yet to be excavated by a specialized underwater archaeology team. Many of the original claims in this month’s headlines were based on the finding of the dive team alone, which included an underwater photographer, a fishery professor, and a diving instructor. Thus, it is difficult for any of the claims to be verified before a formal excavation by trained archaeologists takes place. Still, the fact that there are still unexcavated underwater ruins waiting to be discovered is a pretty fascinating thought in itself. Atlantis has to be down there somewhere, right?

    Russian State Media Claims Extraterrestrial Bacteria Discovered on ISS

    As we continue to invent more powerful telescopes and farther-reaching proves, humankind may have finally made contact with life from outside of our own planet much more close to home. That’s according to Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov, who will make this third trip to the International Space Station in December. Shkaplerov recently said in an interview that he had personally discovered foreign microbes growing on the side of the ISS.

    Shkaplerov left) and Scott Kelly aboard the ISS.

    Shkaplerov (left) and Scott Kelly aboard the ISS.

    Shkaplerov told Russian state news agency TASS that while swabbing the ISS hull for testing on a previous trip, bacteria was detected growing on the outside of the ISS which was found not have a terrestrial origin:

    It turns out that somehow these swabs reveal bacteria that were absent during the launch of the ISS module. That is, they have come from outer space and settled along the external surface. They are being studied so far and it seems that they pose no danger.

    While it’s awesome to imagine that these bacteria might be our first extraterrestrial contact, there is the likelihood that the bacteria were still introduced via contamination from earthly sources. Bacteria from Madagascar and plankton from the Barents Sea were found growing on the ISS earlier this year, forcing scientists to suggest raising the upper limits of the known biosphere to 400 km (248 miles). While we imagine space as empty, the space directly around the Earth can be affected by our planet through a number of processes.

    Samples are routinely taken from various locations on the outside of the space station.

    Samples are routinely taken from various locations on the outside of the space station.

    The remarks of cosmonaut Shkaplerov adds a new strand the web of strangeness surrounding Russia and the International Space Station. Earlier this year, the Russian space agency Roscosmos hinted at the discovery of foreign biomaterial on the outside of the space station, prompting a flyby from an American mystery satellite. Soon after, Roscosmos sent a mysterious, unidentified module up to the ISS for some sort of undisclosed experiment. Could this be the beginning of a new chapter of human history, or is Russian state media engaging in some good ol’ fashioned disinformation?

    Physical Evidence of Alien UFOs has been Found!

    It has been documented so many times, in the past fifty years, that we are not alone. There have been many UFO cases where people have seen Unidentified Flying Objects from constructed machines to bright spheres actually land.


    When some of these sites have been examined, residual traces have been discovered. When they leave traces behind, we have something tangible to examine long after the object is gone.

    I believe the data indicates constructed machines under some sort of intelligent control which can interact with their surroundings in a very physical way.

    What these machines are or where they might originate are open questions.

    These questions simply cannot be answered by ignoring the facts.

    Physical traces found at landing sites include the imprints left behind by the landing gears of the object which indicate tremendous pressure - great weight - generally found as three or four in number, arranged in either a triangular or rectangular pattern.

    Apart from imprints, the soil in the landing area is often extremely dehydrated and unable to absorb water. UFO-affected soil cannot support seed germination and plant growth.

    Close Encounters

    US-Navy-UFO

    Has planet earth ever had a close encounter with aliens?

    While UFOs and their occupants have been part of our culture for more than a century, and people from many walks of life claim to have seen them, we have no indisputable evidence that they’re fact rather than fiction, or do we? Naked Science speaks to witnesses of two of the most controversial UFO sightings, the Rendlesham Forest incident in the UK and the Phoenix Lights sighting in the US, as well as the most famous UFO incident of all time, Roswell.

    If unidentified flying objects did come from space, how could they have travelled to earth? And how could they survive in our atmosphere? We talk to leading physicists and astrophysicists about the viability of interstellar travel and whether worm holes and warp drives could make it possible. Or perhaps extra-terrestrials will send tiny self-replicating nanobots to explore our Earth?

    Close encounters originated with reported sightings of alien craft, but in the last few decades alien contact has taken a new and more terrifying twist, alien abduction. We talk to a so called ‘experiencer’ who claims to have been taken from her bed and experimented on. She believes her claims but could there be another, scientific, explanation for what she remembers? We talk to a neuroscientist who thinks he has the answer. Finally, Naked Science asks possibly the most shocking question of all, could aliens already be among us?

    UK archaeologists unearth “nationally important” collection of Iron Age artifacts

     BY ALEXANDRU MICU

    University of Leicester archaeologists have recovered a collection of rare Iron Age metal artifacts from a site in Glenfield Park, Leicestershire, England. Among the objects are decorated cauldrons, a complete sword, and a brooch from the 3rd century BC.

    The collection includes eleven cauldrons, several fine-crafted ring-headed dress pins, an involuted brooch and a cast copper-alloy ‘horn-cap’, likely a part of a ceremonial staff, archaeologists say. The objects were inhumed at the site in a series of events that took part over a considerable span of time, they add, resulting in multiple episodes of sediment deposition across the settlement.

    Glenfield Park is an exceptional archaeological site, with a fantastic array of finds that highlight this as one of the more important discoveries of recent years,” said Dr. John Thomas, director of the excavation and project officer from the University of Leicester Archaeological Services.

    Dr. Thomas explains that human occupation in the area during the middle Iron Age (5th to 4th centuries BC) was “modest”, consisting of a small settlement with no walls on the south-facing slopes of the spur. Some time later, around the 4th to 3rd centuries BC according to current radiocarbon dating results, the site underwent major changes. Individual roadhouses were enclosed, “there was far more evidence for material culture”, and the inhabitants adopted rituals and rites that seem to involve “deliberate burial of a striking assemblage of metalwork.”

    That metalwork is what truly sets the site apart, Dr. Thomas says. Not only is it found in much larger quantities than in other known comparable sites in the area, the items are also of much higher quality and the composition of the artifacts is also unique.

    [ALSO READ: Huge treasure of medieval silver and gold unearthed at abbey in France

    The cauldron assemblage in particular makes this a nationally important discovery,Dr. Thomas said. “They represent the most northerly discovery of such objects on mainland Britain and the only find of this type of cauldron in the East Midlands.”

    The team reports that the cauldrons appear to have been placed in a large circular enclosure ditch that surrounded a building. It’s not known why yet, but it’s very likely that this was a deliberate choice, not an accident, the archaeologists add. The cauldrons had been placed either upright or inverted, after which the ditch was filled in. One hypothesis is that this burial was meant to mark an end to the activities carried out at this part of the site. Other cauldrons were found buried across the site, suggesting that these rituals were used to mark significant events over a long period of time as the settlement developed.

    They are fashioned from several distinct parts — iron for the rims, upper bands, and the ring handles attached to them, copper alloy for the body. Size-wise, they range between 14.2 and 22 inches (36-56 cm) in diameter, with the summed-up capacity of all cauldrons around 550 liters. This volume is quite significant, and the team suspects that they may have been used to provide food for large groups of people, for example at gatherings held in the site for the area’s wider Iron Age community.

    CT scans performed on the cauldrons show evidence of wear, tea, and repair, pointing to long-term and repeated use of the objects. The amount of care and effort that went into repairing them further reinforces the hypothesis that the cauldrons were special for the Iron Age community at Glenfield Park.

    Due to their large capacity it is thought that Iron Age cauldrons were reserved for special occasions and would have been important social objects, forming the centerpiece of major feasts, perhaps in association with large gatherings and events,Dr. Thomas said.

    They are rarely found in large numbers and, with the exception of a  }in Chiseldon, where 17 cauldrons were found in a pit, there have been few excavated examples in recent years.

    Dr. Thomas adds that cauldrons held a symbolic value in the area at the time, as evidenced by their frequent appearance in early-medieval Irish and Welsh literature.

    Filer’s Files #48 – 2017 UFOs Are Spaceships - PART I

    In special reports, this week’s files cover: Father of Space Age Says UFOs Are Here, UFOs Spotted in 1904 by Future Admiral, Yahweh (God) and His Flying Machines, Yahweh (God) and His Flying Machines, UK’s Monuments to Space Ships, and Mexican Cartels Killing 13,000+ US Citizens Each Year

    Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over California, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, and  Vermont.

    Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over Australia, Brazil, Denmark, France, Germany, Portugal, Puerto Rico, and England in the United Kingdom.

    The Filer Research Institute feels the scientific study of UFOs is for the benefit of humankind and is an important endeavor. The US Air Force investigated UFOs publicly for more than twenty years under Project Blue Book; and I continue this advanced research. I belie e the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO’s are  visiting us in ever-increasing numbers.

    Father of Space Age Says UFOs Are Here



     Hermann Oberth considered by some to be one of the fathers of the space age, who developed rockets for Germany and later worked in the US with Wernher  on Braun, the Army Ballistic Missile Agency and NASA, stated the following in 1954:

    It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system.” Perhaps of more interest to our present discussion on propulsion, he then stated that: “They are flying by the means of artificial fields of gravity…; they produce high-tension electric charges in order to push the air out of their paths, so it does not start glowing, and strong magnetic fields to influence the ionized air at higher altitudes. First, this would explain their luminosity… Secondly, it would explain the noiselessness of UFO flight…” We now know that he was fundamentally correct in his assessment.

    UFOs Spotted in 1904 by Future Admiral

     On March 8, 1904, the New York Times published a report about a navy officer allegedly seeing a collection of meteors. The report, which can be  viewed on the New York Times archive, informs of how on February 28th 1904, Lieutenant Frank Schofield saw three meteors which he said appeared “near the horizon and below the clouds”

    According to Lieutenant Schofield, initially the meteors were travelling fast and they were bright red in color, but as they approached the ship, “they appeared to soar above the clouds at an elevation of about forty-five degrees.” The NYT report continues that the largest of the meteors had an apparent area of approximately six suns and was shaped like an egg, while the other two meteors were round.

    The Paranormal Report elaborates on the story, informing how when the US Na y steam and sail schooner USS Supply were approximately 400 miles to the southwest of San Francisco, several crew members sighted what they described as being ‘Meteors’ It was Lt. Frank Schofield, who collected the accounts of what The Paranormal Report describes as forming the “basis for one of the most remarkable early sightings in UFO history.”

    Schofield a Decorated Admiral

    Born in New York in 1869, Frank Herman Schofield was a decorated admiral of the US Na y, eventually being promoted to Commander in Chief Battle Force with the accompanying status of Admiral (3). He has been referred to as serving with distinction in the Spanish-American War and the First World War. During January 1904, Schofield was also acting Governor of Guam. Following 47 years of ser ice, Admiral Schofield retired in 1933 and died in Maryland in 1942.

    What is interesting about this story is the fact that Frank Herman Schofield was a highly admired and respected member of the US Navy with a long and successful career. Although Schofield refers to the objects in the sky as meteors which were traveling quickly, the description doesn’t entirely match what a high- velocity meteor would look like.

    Strange Objects

    As the Paranormal Report writes:

    “Whatever these objects were, they were not meteors, as evidenced by their seeming ability to fly under, and then through the clouds finally gaining altitude. The pointed end forward attitude of the egg shaped object is precisely the opposite of what would be expected from a meteor, and the red coloring is not normally one associated with meteors, which usually give e off a blue-green or white light.”

    Due to this anomaly in the Schofield’s description to what we now know meteors to look like, the 1904 sighting is regarded as one of the most interesting early UFO sightings. Originally published on TopSecretWriters.com and Gabrielle Pickard

    Yahweh (God) and His Flying Machines

    Bill Bean writes the Bible tells of UFOs and the glory of God’s craft. In Hebrew chariots, the glory of the Lord and clouds refer to anything that flies like UFOs.

    The Hovering  vehicle Glory and Light in

    Exodus 40:34-38.

    Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle… And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:  But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up. For the cloud of the Lord was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys. The flying object remained in the presence of the nation wherever it went.

    Spinning Chariots of Fire Take Elijah Up

     2 Kings 2:11-12.

    And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha saw it, and he cried my father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.

     Elijah and Elisha are talking and suddenly a bright cavalry of glowing  vehicles appears and Elijah ascends into the sky in a spinning-flying  vehicle. The word translated into horses, ‘cuwc’, means rapid flight. This is most likely the army spoken of where hosts appears.

    Mother Mary and Jesus Painting The ‘’Madonna of the UFO’’ or ‘’Madonna of the flying saucer’’ is a painting located in Palazzovecchio in Florence in the Hall of Hercules. Also called “Madonna and Child with the Infant St John”, the painting has been the topic of much debate between art experts and ufologists. While the painting depicts the Nativity with the infant St. John in the foreground, in the background one can see a man curiously watching an unidentified flying object (UFO).

    The painting is of unknown origin, but it probably dates from as early as the sixteenth century  attributes authorship to either Sebastiano Mainardi or Jacopo del Sellaio;

    Claude Atkins said, “President Nixon showed Jackie Gleason an Alien”

    My wife was on  vacation with girl friends near Miami, Florida at En iron on property owned by Jackie Gleason about 1979. She phoned me and was excited about telling me her story about meeting and talking with the actor Claude Atkins who was  very friendly.

    Claude was playing golf with  Comedian and actor Jackie Gleason at his golf course outside Miami, and my wife was watching them playing. Later Claude and my wife were talking and he told her that Gleason had just revealed President Nixon took Gleason to Homestead Air Force Base and showed him an alien body.

    Apparently, Gleason often played golf with President Nixon and they were close friends during Nixon’s presidency from January 20, 1969 – August 9, 1974.

     The Jackie Gleason Show was popular from 1952 to 1970), and which centered on his most beloved character, bus driver Ralph Kramden. He later was featured in Smokey and the Bandit Movie in 1977, and its sequels in 1980, and 1983. Gleason’s home was built in the shape of a UFO.

    Claude Atkins (left) was a close friend of Jackie Gleason and was the star of the Trucker  series “Movin On” a show about independent truckers fighting corruption and moving loads around the nation in their big rigs between 1974 and 76.

    As a film actor, Akins first appeared in 1953’s From Here to Eternity. In 1954’s The Caine MutinyDon’t Give Up the ShipMerrill’s Marauders,  The Devil’s BrigadeInherit the Wind,  and many others..

    UK’s Monuments to Space Ships

    Throughout England there are archeological structures carved in the soil that have a similar cylinder shape and size to UFOs and are known as a cursus. They are called cursus because they thought they were race tracks. Cursus was a name given by early British archaeologists to the large parallel lengths of banks with external ditches which they thought were early Roman athletic courses, hence the Latin name cursus, meaning “course”. Cursus monuments are now understood to be Neolithic structures and represent some of the oldest prehistoric monumental structures of the British Isles some 3500 years old and built before the circular Stonehenge. Many are over a mile long and the distance between the dug parallel earthworks (shown here) can be up to 100 meters that consists of a bank with an external ditch. They are often aligned next to pre-existing long barrows or prehistoric earth mounds used to bury the dead.

    The Cursus monuments are often built over rough terrain crossing streams or alleys. Cursuses became a subject of study when many of them were discovered through aerial photography, and curiosity was piqued as to what their purpose might be. Finds of arrowheads at the terminal ends suggest archery and hunting were important to the builders. It has been conjectured that Cursus were used in rituals connected with ancestor worship, and that they follow astronomical alignments.

    It is my theory the Cursus were built over rough terrain as to mark the position of the huge alien Motherships like the one I chased while in the US Air Force. The Cursus may outline the craft’s landing field. The cylinder shape and size match the monuments on the ground as well as the long burrows. Thousands of man hours of work were needed to build the outline to imitate the Motherships who often launch disc shaped craft. Stonehenge which was built later and hundreds of other stone and timber circles could imitate the discs.

    Gary McKinnon and his mother Janis Sharp can breathe sighs of relief because

    British Home Secretary Theresa May officially announced that the UK will not extradite McKinnon to the United States.

    McKinnon was charged by the U.S. with the “biggest military computer hack of all time” in 2001 and 2002 after looking for information about UFOs and extraterrestrials in NASA and Pentagon computers, and has been fighting extradition ever since. Lanny Breuer, the US assistant attorney-general in charge of criminal cases, has said, “Officials are ” very disappointed” with the decision not to extradite Mr. McKinnon.”

     McKinnon, who has Asperger’s syndrome had faced 60 years in prison if he had been found guilty in a US court.

    But he won his battle against extradition after Theresa told MPs there was a risk Mr. McKinnon , would likely commit suicide if he was sent to face trial in America. Home Secretary Theresa May’s decision helped her become Prime Minister . (Credit: UK Government)

    Note – If Mr. McKinnon’s data is correct, it  validates the assumption the US Na y may well be operating off-planet  via back engineered ET technology. His data indicates the Navy and probably the Air Force operate a fleet of space craft and officers to either occupy or control them.

    Aviation Week Magazine claimed the US has the Blackstar space craft. US Na y Clementine mission project mapped the entire Moon.

    Gary McKinnon states, “I found a list of fleet-to-fleet transfers, and a list of ship names. I looked them up. They weren’t U.S. Navy ships. What I saw made me believe they have some  spaceships off planet. In his interview with the BBC, Gary claimed, “The Disclosure Project” had some  very credible people all saying there is UFO technology, there’s anti-gravity, there’s free energy, and it’s extraterrestrial in origin and they’ e captured spacecraft and reverse engineered it.” He said, he investigated a NASA photographic expert’s claim that at the Johnson Space Center‘s Building 8, images were regularly cleaned of evidence of UFO craft, and confirmed this, comparing the raw originals with the “processed” images.

    He claimed to have viewed a detailed image of “something not man-made and cigar shaped floating above the northern hemisphere.

    To recap the Gary McKinnon saga, check out the timeline assembled by the Telegraph – http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/9611085/Gary-McKinnon-extradition-timeline-on-how-the-fight-unfolded.html

    Mexican Cartels Killing 13,000+ US Citizens Each Year

    2017 DEA Drug Threat Report: has been made public and Mexico is the greatest heroin source with most coming across our border with Mexico from 6 major cartels. The 182 page comprehensive report covers twenty sections. Heroin-involved overdose deaths more than quadrupled between 2010 and 2015, with the most recent data indicating that heroin was involved in 12,989 American deaths in 2015 increasing about 2000 deaths per year..Note: .I ha e yet to see our National TV  fake news mention this Mexican carnage. Although they do show their opposition to building a wall to help stop the slaughter.

    Mexico is the provider of 70 % of the heroin to the United States, followed by Colombia to a much  lesser degree.

    Rafael Caro Quintero is leading the Sinaloa Cartel along with El Mayo Zambada.

    Gangs:

    Mexican-based transnational criminal organizations (TCOs) dominate the supply and wholesale distribution of most illicit drugs in the United States. Approximately 70% of all illicit drugs consumed in the United States are trafficked through Mexico, TCOs, and haxe expanded their control over the drug-trafficing conducted by criminal street gangs in their respective territories. Zetas: Juan Gerardo Treviño-Chávez is leading the cartel.

    BLO: Fausto Isídro Meza-Flores, alias Chapo Isidro remains a subgroup with BLO, and BLO subgroups depend on alliances with CJNG, Zetas and Juárez to access drug corridors.

    Mexican TCOs maintain the greatest drug trafficking influence in the United States, with continued signs of growth and expansion. By controlling lucrative smuggling corridors, primarily across the Southwest Border, Mexican TCOs export significant quantities of heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, and fentanyl into the U.S. annually. Once these illicit drugs are smuggled into the U.S., they are delivered to user markets through transportation routes and distribution cells that are managed or influenced by Mexican TCOs. Illegal immigrants are often forced to bring drugs into the US by the Cartels that control the border. Over the past several years, Mexican TCOs have expanded their sphere of influence into deferent regions of the United States, including the New England area. The most significant illicit drug threat posed to the greater Chicago area is by Mexican TCOs grown heroin, which dominate the wholesale supply of methamphetamine, cocaine, Mexican-grown marijuana, and heroin in this area. At this time there do not appear to be any viable competitors to Mexican TCOs for control of the wholesale drug supply to the Chicago area. To move drug shipments to Chicago, Mexican TCOs employ intermediaries who oversee shipments across the SWB, and facilitate sales to wholesale and mid-level clients.

    Mexican TCOs also are the principal suppliers of crystal methamphetamine to the US. A  veritable war on drugs has erupted in Mexico with the Calderon government attempting to rid the country of organized crime. The result has been incredible violence with 46,000 Mexicans being killed in this internal conflict,

    Most Significant Mexican TCOs Currently Active in the United States

    The drug trafficking landscape in Mexico is in constant flux with new organizations emerging as offshoots from previously established TCOs. As of 2016, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) assesses the following six Mexican TCOs, as controlling the drug trafficking t on the U.S:

    Sinaloa Cartel, Jalisco New Generation Cartel (Cartel Jalisco Nue a Generación, or CJNG), Juarez Cartel, Gulf Cartel, Los Zetas Cartel, and Beltran-Ley a Organization. Each of these TCOs maintains drug distribution cells in cities across the U S that  report directly to TCO leaders in Mexico.

      Drug Cartel Areas in Mexico Controlling Illegal Immigration

    Heroin Overview-The most deadly threat due to fentanyl

    Heroin poses a serious public health and safety threat to the United States. Overdose deaths, already exceed a thousand+ young Americans per month. The increasing adulteration of heroin with analogues of the highly-potent synthetic opioid fentanyl and other synthetic opioids has exacerbated this situation. Poppy cultivation and heroin production levels in Mexico, the primary source of heroin for the U.S. market, continue to increase. The heroin supply in white powder markets in the eastern U.S, is highly pure, inexpensive, and increasingly adulterated with fentanyl.. While the size of the heroin user population is smaller than other major drugs, heroin is highly deadly to its users. For example, the population that currently abuses prescription pain relievers is 10 times the size of the heroin user population; however, the number of opioid analgesic-involved overdose deaths is twice that of heroin-involved deaths. Heroin is now commonly adulterated with fentanyl, making it even more deadly to its user population.

    The Drug poisoning of Americans continues to increase

    The United States has seen substantial increases in heroin availability in the last seven to 10 years, which has allowed the heroin threat to expand to unprecedented levels. Rapid increases in heroin production in Mexico since 2015 have ensured a reliable supply of low-cost heroin,. The DEA field divisions with the highest percentage of respondents choosing heroin as the greatest drug threat are in the Northeast and Midwest: Philadelphia FD (84.2%), New Jersey FD (84.2%), New York FD (76.9%), New England FD (65.0%), Detroit FD (64.2%), Chicago FD (54.6%), and Washington FD (47.2%). Seattle FD 46.1%) :Law enforcement agencies indicates heroin availability continues to increase throughout the United States.

    • Drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the US in 2016 , with 52,404 deaths .Additionally, many killings and robberies are tied to the desperate need for money to buy the drugs. By the end of his presidency on January 20, 2017, Barack Obama had exercised his constitutional power to grant executive clemency—that is, “pardon, to 1,927 individuals convicted of federal crimes. Most individuals granted executive clemency by Obama had been convicted on drug charges. Many of the illegal immigrants are forced to bring in heroin by the Mexican Cartels,

    In comparison the U.S. first invaded Afghanistan on October 7, 2001, as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. US military deaths over sixteen years of fighting in the War in Afghanistan as of October 2017 have now reached.1,834 about ten deaths per month as the result of hostile action. The Mexican drug war not covered by the news media kills over a thousand young people each month. Perhaps we are fighting the wrong war?

    Well I took out my phone and took the picture . It wasn’t till later when I look at my pictures I realized I captured a UFO, Everyone I showed the pictures to told me you need send it in. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Colorado Light

    Ouray — This is one of those discoveries that happened after the events were captured on November 16th, 2017. My friend and I were both taking photos on our iPhone while parked at Bear Creek Falls along the Million Dollar Highway just south of Ouray. We were shooting pics of the  valley extending south towards the base of Abrams Mountain rising in the distance. We both shot lots of photos, not noticing anything out of the ordinary, but in the last two days we have both discovered striking shots of a green orb in our photos at exactly 10:52 am. From the photos timing/sequencing, this green sphere seems to have traveled miles in less than a microsecond and gives off a transparent saucer-like white hue at one point surrounding the green sphere. Both cameras captured the same thing and we have ruled out sun flares. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Connecticut Objects

    Thomaston — I was parked in the parking lot of my husband’s work waiting for him to get out. It was a little before 4 pm on November 19. 2017. I noticed what I thought at the time was a flock of white birds fly up over the hills, across the river  very purposefully. I noticed I could identify other birds flying in the same area that I realized they were not birds. That is when I started to take pictures of objects following each other but not in any type of solid formation that I could tell. Much like a flock of sparrows or crows. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Florida Object

    Miami — Watching the Nascar Xfinity Series final on TV I saw a disc

    The object was captured on November

    18, 2017. Above the race. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Idaho Lights

    Idaho Falls — I’ e seen quite a few ufos and think I’ve been possibly visited. A saucer, a huge camouflaged triangle, a huge white orb covered the moon and flew across the sky on June 8, 2018.

    There was an orange orb in my back yard and more in Idaho Falls area. People just don’t look up. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    ’New Jersey Chevrons

    Barnegat – On November 21, 2017,  I observed two chevron shaped flying objects hovering above the tree line southwest of West Bay Avenue.  The chevron outline was lit with lights and the crafts hovered above the trees and moved slightly into and out of my line of sight  I could not tell how far away they were as they moved northeast on a steady path.  went inside for a few minutes, then came back with phone in case they returned.  They had so I took a short  video.  You can observe the hovering lights above the nearby lit homes.  I also attached a picture depicting similar craft that someone else observed a while back.  Pets did not react, I did not feel anything other than intrigued.

    The video only shows lights in the distance hovering for a few minutes.  See pic attached for general idea of what I saw. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Oklahoma Object

    Okemah — I saw an object in the sky on October 16, 2017. that looked like it was in our south cow pasture. I pulled up to the stop sign and observed it for about 5 minutes. It never moved! I exited my car and took a picture with my cell phone and kept observing it for about 10 more minutes. I thought if it was a plane, drone, or blimp it should move very slowly. It never did! I had an appointment in town and had to go and it wasn’t there when I returned. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    South Carolina Triangle

    Driving down Highway 6 from Santee SC towards Eutawville and noticed 3  very bright lights side by side above the trees. I thought it was a tower because it was low and very bright. As I got closer I started filming from my car as I drove and when it got close I pulled over and took more  video as it flew directly overhead. It was low, maybe 100 yards high but made no noise and moved extremely slow. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Texas Lights

    Euless – I was outside my back yard with s flashlight picking up pecans. Then I got my dog and sat down on my porch chair. I could see something to my left and looked and seen this glowing white thing moving around. I seen a helicopter actually coming from my right side and it passed the object going over it. Then I just started  videoing it till I got scared. It’s 7:24 and it’s still out there! Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Washington Lights

    Rainer — On October 11, 2017, I went out to take pics of the sunset from my back porch. I didn’t notice at the time, but in my photos I captured what looks like an aqua blue green orb hovering about 20-30 feet directly in front of me towards the south. It seems to be staying in the branches of the tree in the photos. It moves from left to right through 5 photos all taken within seconds of each other. The fifth photo in which the orb appears, it almost looks as if the object swings around the end of the branch of the tree. And in the following photo (6) the orb appears back towards the left again. But, now in the branches of a much larger tree which is 90 feet away. In every photo of the orb. I used the Live Photo mode on my iPhone 7plus Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Worldwide UFO Sightings

    Australia Lights

    Mandurah — I was with my 4 year old nephew who was playing with soap bubbles in the backyard. He was excited making lots of bubbles that were going everywhere. It was a perfect clear afternoon, not a cloud in the sky and perfect weather. As my nephew was making his soap bubbles, at one stage he pointed to the sky and said something like “Oh wow, look!”, then continued on making more.. As I looked up something caught my eye. I noticed two  very bright lights in the sky sort of hovering on about a 60 degree angle above us. They were moving  very slowly towards us. It was coming from a N/E direction at about the height of a low small Cessna aircraft. I noticed that there was actually nothing in between the two lights. I got the impression that these “lights” were observing us. The lights were extremely bright. At this moment the two lights (in unison) moved across the sky in an instant, then again twice more before the lights faded out, like powerful spotlights powering down. By the time the lights faded out and disappeared my brother came out. It was a very profound experience. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Brazil Triangle

    Rio — A friend made two  videos with a IPhone 7 showing a UFO fleet hovering at Engenho Novo, Rio de Janeiro on November 16, 2017. They had pulsating changing lights from blue, green to red yellow and in formation of three, mostly.
    They came from nothing and disappeared to nothing within five minutes.
    Thanks to MUFON CMS

    France Lights

    Paris — I was at home with my 12 year old daughter during the beginning of summer on the 24th of June 2010 when I was ‘attracted’ outside on the balcony. We live on the 5th floor of a building in Paris. I immediately took my  video camera and took a snapshot of these strange objects. I was stunned – And my daughter as well – you can hear our  vices on the  video. Weirdly, the orbs became kind of ‘smart phones’ as I’ e seen a lot in  videos in the sky of Mexico. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Gibraltar Disc

    I was flying to Gibraltar and saw a black disc flew across on April 5, 2017. I was taking photos of clouds from the aircraft window. Then I saw a black object through my phone. I took 4 photos at one time and two ha e a  visible sight of it. I looked through the window after and there was nothing as it disappeared. I was so surprised. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Italy Disc

    Trento — My 14 years old Michelangelo went for holydays to Trento, north of Italy on July 19, 2017, and ha e taken and sent to me a picture where I immediately observed a shadow on the air flying of the mountain. I kindly asked you to analyze my picture to  verify if effectively is an OVNI or UFO. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Japan Lights

    Kyoto — My wife and I were sightseeing in Kyoto for the day and were on our way to the train station on November 18, 2017, when I saw this cool tower. I started to get out my phone and as I looked up there they were hovering around the sky near the tower. I snapped a picture with my phone and in the blink of an eye they took straight off and then made like a z then went straight up and disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Portugal Object 

    Combra — I was watching the clouds on September 14, 2017, as I searched for airplanes and did my usual report of the chemtrails in my area, I noticed a strange cloud and zoomed in. Due to the bright sunlight I could not see the screen and only after reviewing the images on the computer did I notice that I had in fact filmed something similar to other secret projects like the TR3B or Sr91 Aurora. I was left with the feeling that there are more objects next to the triangular object  Thanks to Carlos  Vieira.

    Russia Object

    Chita City — 1. I was in my apartment and looked out the window and saw two slowly moving objects. A few weeks ago I’ e seen such objects, but I had no camera with me.
    3.4. The objects were like inverted cones without a top. Bottom was glowing red or orange. Objects moving one behind the other on a small distance between them with a constant speed on June 17, 2010.
    5. I took a few shots (canon 40dtamron 70-300mm).
    6. The objects disappeared behind a neighboring house.

    Cap — This happened around the late summer, in 2010, at 11 am. I was on the balcony with my mother, and noticed the stars were lit, I could not belie e and understand. They began to flicker (like a Garland) and one luminous object (supposedly a star) separated from this cluster. It went out and turned into a spaceship, forms of tears. His direction was the opposite of flickering flew  very smoothly and did not deviate from the course. A cluster of stars, continued to flicker, as if escorting this ship. The spaceship could not be seen at first in the night sky, but soon as I expected, he reached the full moon. The ship was on the background of a clear moon for 30 seconds. . It was clear that he was huge and very far away. I assume that it was the size of one kilometer or two.  He seemed to swim across the sky. The eye can be determined that it is huge, and also had a dark-silver color, but did not shine. It’s like a massive steel mass. This ship is something like ships from the Stargate. I saw later in the movie “Man of Steel.” It’s a huge ship that began to fade and disappeared literally in 10 seconds. I attached a picture from the movie “A Man From Steel as the closest analogy.”

    Spain Disc

    Barcelona – I saw A lying object from north to south southeast fast!

    I took the picture on November 12, 2017. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    UK/England

    Newport Pagnell – On a warm evening we were just walking Scobie our six stone dog who started to get  very agitated letting me know there was a threat. When I looked up into the night sky, which was  very clear, I saw a large triangular shape pass  very slowly and  very quietly across the sky blacking out the stars until the object passed by. The stars reappeared at the rear of the object where there was three soft orange lights , I presume they were engines of sorts, but there was no noise. Once passed a Good distance Scobie calmed down and went about her business, Regards Bob Smith

    UK/Scotland Light

    Perth – I was on vacation in Perth, staying in my parents attic with my partner it was roughly 4 am, got out of bed and passed the window noticed what looked like a really bright star on September 17, 2017. I observed it for a minute or so, It was at least 10 times brighter than anything else and appeared to be within the atmosphere and glowing like plasma. It did not appear to move and stopped watching after 5 minutes so I could tend to my partner. I never spent any more time watching, simply went to sleep. I found it quite strange after the event I seemed to completely forget about it didn’t show the  video to anyone until at least a week later. I’m reporting it now is because I recently seen a  video of a similar object that seemed to disperse the clouds around it. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    NASA audio recordings sent to aliens now up for sale

    By BGR

    In the late 1970s, NASA sent a pair of probes on a one-way mission into the depths of space. Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 sent back some observations along the way, and while we knew we’d never actually see the spacecrafts again, we couldn’t rule out the possibility that someone or something might come across them some day, so a team of scientists included a gift.

    Each probe was equipped with a single copy of NASA’s “Golden Record,” which includes highly scientific directions to our planet along with a collection of sounds and music that tell a brief tale of life of Earth.

    Now, decades later, the contents of that historic relic are being released in a special edition package with audio tracks that are remastered from the original recordings. Yes, you can now pretend like you’re an alien and try to imagine what otherworldly civilization could have sent such a remarkable mix of sounds.

    The Golden Record was packed with classic music sourced from all over the world, along with separate audio tracks that included the greetings of over 50 different languages. The first track is a greeting from Earth, and a lovely recording called “Sounds of Earth” features various animal and nature sound effects, intended to paint a vivid picture of Earthly life.

    The full track listing is as follows:

    1. Kurt Waldheim – Greeting from Kurt Waldheim, Secretary – General of the United Nations
    2. Greetings in 55 Languages
    3. United Nations Greetings/Whale Songs
    4. Sounds of Earth
    5. Munich Bach Orchestra/Karl Richter – Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 in F Major, BWV 1047: I. Allegro (Johann Sebastian Bach)
    6. Pura Paku Alaman Palace Orchestra/K.R.T. Wasitodipuro – Ketawang: Puspåwårnå (Kinds of Flowers)
    7. Mahi musicians of Benin – Cengunmé
    8. Mbuti of the Ituri Rainforest – Alima Song
    9. Tom Djawa, Mudpo, and Waliparu – Barnumbirr (Morning Star) and Moikoi Song
    10. Antonio Maciel and Los Aguilillas with Mariachi México de Pepe Villa/Rafael Carrión – El Cascabel (Lorenzo Barcelata)
    11. Chuck Berry – Johnny B. Goode
    12. Pranis Pandang and Kumbui of the Nyaura Clan – Mariuamangɨ
    13. Goro Yamaguchi – Sokaku-Reibo (Depicting the Cranes in Their Nest)
    14. Arthur Grumiaux – Partita for Violin Solo No. 3 in E Major, BWV 1006: III. Gavotte en Rondeau (Johann Sebastian Bach)
    15. Bavarian State Opera Orchestra and Chorus/Wolfgang Sawallisch – The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte), K. 620, Act II: Hell’s Vengeance Boils in My Heart (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart)
    16. Georgian State Merited Ensemble of Folk Song and Dance/Anzor Kavsadze – Chakrulo
    17. Musicians from Ancash – Roncadoras and Drums
    18. Louis Armstrong and His Hot Seven – Melancholy Blues (Marty Bloom/Walter Melrose)

    31. Budapest String Quartet – String Quartet No. 13 in B-flat Major, Opus 130: V. Cavatina (Ludwig Van Beethoven)

    From Beethoven to Chuck Berry, there’s a lot of quality music here, and if aliens do one day sit down to listen to it all they’ll no doubt be interested in what they hear. Of course, there’s also the possibility that giving aliens directions to find us could prompt them to wipe us out entirely, but we’ll try to look on the bright side of things for the moment.

    The recordings will be made available on two CDs, along with a 96-page hardcover book containing the backstory of the record and the Voyager mission, along with print outs of the images that were also encoded on the record. It can currently be pre-ordered for a pretty reasonable sum of $50 with shipping in time for Christmas.

    MIT Scientists Created a New Method of Turning CO2 into Fuel

    by Brad Jones

     

    Getty Images

    Waste Not, Want Not

    Researchers at MIT have created a new method of turning carbon dioxide emissions from power plants into a useful product. The resulting substance could be used as fuel for cars, trucks, and planes, as well as chemical feedstock with a large variety of applications.

    MIT postdoc Xiao-Yu Wu developed the new membrane-based system alongside Ahmed Ghoniem, the Ronald C. Crane professor of mechanical engineering. The membrane itself is made from a compound of lanthanum, calcium, and iron oxide. It works by allowing oxygen from carbon dioxide to pass through while leaving carbon monoxide on the other side.

    The scientists behind the project report that the membrane is 100 percent selective when it comes to oxygen. The separation process is driven by extremely high temperatures, with a high of 990 degrees Celsius.

    It’s crucial that the oxygen that separates off from the carbon monoxide continues to flow through the membrane until it has reached the other side. This could be accomplished using a vacuum, but that technique would require a great deal of energy. Instead, a stream of fuel — such as hydrogen or methane — will be employed, as these substances are easily oxidized and don’t require a pressure difference to ferry the oxygen atoms through the membrane.

    The resulting carbon monoxide can either be used as a fuel in its own right, or combined with hydrogen, water, or a mixture of the two to produce liquid hydrocarbon fuels. It can also be used to create chemicals like methanol, syngas, and more.

    Environmental Impact

    The heat required for the process could be supplied by solar energy or waste heat — some of which may be contributed by the power plant itself. In basic terms, the technique allows for that energy to be stored in chemical fuel form.

    This is similar to the carbon capture projects being pursued by various groups all over the world. It’s no secret that we can’t maintain our current levels of carbon emissions, so something needs to be done to address the problem.

    This particular technique harbors a great deal of potential: not only does it address carbon emissions, it provides a built-in method for paying for its set-up costs. Its creators have suggested that natural gas power plants could use the system in a manner that splits incoming gas into two streams: one that would be burned to generate electricity alongside its carbon dioxide production, and another that would work with the membrane to produce the oxygen-reacting fuel source. Such an implementation would allow the plant to yield syngas (a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen) as a secondary revenue stream.

    The next step will be an investigation into the best way to go about increasing the rate of oxygen flow across the membrane. Attempts are also being made to integrate the membrane into working reactors and to pair those reactors with the fuel production mechanism.The heat required for the process could be supplied by solar energy or waste heat — some of which may be contributed by the power plant itself.

    Before the Great Deluge, Eighth Antediluvian Kings ruled for 241,200 years

    “After the kingship descended from heaven, the kingship was in Eridug. In Eridug, Alulim became king; he ruled for 28800 years.”

    According to the accounts written down on the Sumerian King List, Eight ancient kings ruled over ancient Mesopotamia for a period of 241,200 years, before the Great Flood.

    Despite the fact that the Sumerian King list names all rules who reigned over the lands of ancient Mesopotamia. Curiously, some of them are recorded having implausibly lengthy reigns.

    Those are the first 8 rulers who according to the list, ruled for 241,200 years.

    According to experts, none of the predynastic antediluvian rulers have so far been verified as historically accurate leaders by archaeological excavations, epigraphical inscriptions or otherwise.

    The reign of antediluvian rulers was measured in sars, periods of 3600 years, ners, units of 600, and sosses units of 60.

    The Sumerian King List states:

    After the kingship descended from heaven, the kingship was in Eridug. In Eridug, Alulim became king; he ruled for 28800 years.”

    Alulim—28,800 years.

    The first king to rule was Alulim, who ruled for 8 Sars, meaning a total of 28,800 years. He was the First ruler of Eridu, and the first king of Sumer. It is believed that Enki, the creator God and patron God od Eridu brought civilization to Sumer at this point.

    Alalngar—36,000 years.

    Alalngar was the second king of Eridu, and the predecessor of Alulim. The Sumerian King list states that he ruled for 36,000 years after which he was succeeded by En-men-lu-ana of Bad-tibira.

    Then Eridug fell and the kingship was taken to Bad-tibira.

    En-men-lu-ana—43,200 years

    The next ruler who was king after Eridug fell was En-men-lu-ana who ruled for 43,200 years. According to the Sumerian King List, En-men-lu-ana was the third pre-dynastic ruler of ancient Sumer, and was the ‘longest reigning king’ according to historical accounts written down on the Sumerian King List.

    En-men-gal-ana—28,800 years.

    According to the Sumerian King List the fourth pre-dynastic ruler of Ancient Sumer was En-men-gal-ana who ruled for 28,800 years. He was succeeded by
    Dumuzid, the Shepherd.

    Dumuzid, the Shepherd36,000 years.

    Dumuzid, commonly referred to as the ‘Shephard’ was the fifth pre-dynastic ruler that, according to the ancient Sumerian King List ruled of Sumer before the Deluge. According to historical accounts, he ruled for 36,000 years. Dumuzid is mentioned sometimes as the Son of Enki.

    Then Bad-tibira fell and the kingship was taken to Larag.

    After the fall of Bad-tibira, the Sumerian King List indicates En-sipad-zid-ana as the next ruler.

    En-sipad-zid-ana—28,800 years.

    En-sipad-zid-ana is mentioned as the sixth pre-dynastic ruler of ancient Sumer before the Deluge. According to the Sumerian King List, he ruled for 28,800 years.

    Then Larag fell and the kingship was taken to Zimbir.

    En-men-dur-ana—21,000 years.

    The following ruler mentioned in the Sumerian King List after the fall of Larag is En-men-dur-ana, who was the seventh pre-dynastic king of Sumer and ruled for a total of 21,000 years.

    Then Zimbir fell and the kingship was taken to Shuruppag.”

    After the fall of Zimbir, Ubara-Tutu ruled over ancient Sumer for a period of 18,600 years. Ubara-Tutu was the eighth and final pre-dynastic ruler of ancient Sumer, as noted in the Sumerian King List. Ubara-tutu is believed to have live until the great deluge swept over the land.

    Elon Musk: Say 'Sweet Dreams,' Humanity

    Robot overlords?

    Elon Musk has once again warned about the dangers of unchecked artificial intelligence, this time in response to a viral video of a robot doing amazing acrobatic feats.

    Twitter user Alex Medina, a designer for Vox Media, posted a clip of a Boston Dynamics humanoid robot called Atlas doing a backflip with the short caption: "we dead."


    In reply, Musk wrote, "This is nothing. In a few years, that bot will move so fast you'll need a strobe light to see it. Sweet dreams."

    He then went on to elaborate on his comment in a follow-up tweet.

    "Got to regulate AI/robotics like we do food, drugs, aircraft & cars. Public risks require public oversight. Getting rid of the FAA wdn’t [sic] make flying safer. They’re there for good reason."

    This is just the latest warning from Musk about robots, which he considers "humanity's biggest existential threat." At a talk at the National Governors Association meeting in July, Musk said lawmakers need to start regulating robots before they start "killing people." He also signed on to a 2015 letter by technology luminaries urging the United Nations to ban killer robots. [History of A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (Infographic)]

    Elon Musk's fear of robots is shared by many brilliant scientists. Stephen Hawking has also warned on numerous occasions that artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race. Billionaire and software icon Bill Gates has said he doesn't understand how some people aren't concerned about the potential threat of A.I.

    The robot shown in the video probably doesn't pose any threat to humanity — yet. It's still not as nimble and versatile as an ordinary human, and according to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Atlas isn't meant to be a killer robot. Instead, it's designed as a disaster robot that could do things like search for humans in rubble, where it would be too hazardous to send human beings.

    Aliens on Saturn’s Icy Moon Enceladus?

    Enceladus

    New research provides evidence suggesting that life could be supported by Saturn’s icy ocean moon Enceladus.

    Enceladus, an icy moon of Saturn that is about 890 million miles from Earth, hides a global ocean beneath its crust of ice. Although Enceladus is less than 1 percent the size of our moon, its hidden ocean contains up to 10 percent of the amount of water that exists on Earth.

    Earlier, NASA declared that Enceladus has conditions favorable to supporting life. Now, a recent study explains how Enceladus could sustain an ocean under its icy crust and how this environment could support life. Researchers matched observations with 3D computer models that depicted a wet, rocky, porous core and illustrated the possible ways in which such an ocean could form.

    Lead author Gaël Choblet, from the French National Center for Scientific Research, said, “If a new theory published last year is correct, then powerful hydrothermal activity could have been occurring since the formation of the moon, possibly as much as the age of the solar system.”

    David A Rothery, professor of Planetary Geosciences at the Open University, U.K., explained, “Chemical reactions are going on even today. If it’s going on today it could have been going on a billion years into the past, and that’s long enough for life to get started—and to have evolved beyond the very most basic stages. It could be quite a complex microbial community down there and we’d love to study it.”

    STUDY: EXPLORATION OF SPECIAL REGIONS NEEDED TO FIND ALIEN LIFE ON MARS

    TOMASZ NOWAKOWSK

    NASA's Mars 2020 rover looks at the horizon in this artist’s concept. The mission will not only seek out and study an area likely to have been habitable in the distant past, but it will take the next, bold step in robotic exploration of the Red Planet by seeking signs of past microbial life itself.

    An international team of researchers has conducted a study endorsing the exploration of the so-called Special Regions on Mars. They call for the relaxation of the planetary protection policy in order to allow sending robotic explorers to the restricted areas that could potentially host microbial life.

    The Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) defines “Special Regions” as zones within which terrestrial organisms are likely to propagate, or, in the case of the Red Planet, areas having a high potential for the existence of extant Martian life forms. However, planetary protection policy puts strict constraints on the exploration of these zones with the aim of protecting the Red Planet from terrestrial biological contamination – in this case, those coming from Earth.

    Given that so far none of the spacecraft missions to Mars have explored the Special Regions, a group of scientists led by Alberto G. Fairén of the Center of Astrobiology in Madrid, Spain, advocate for changes in the planetary protection policy.

    “Planetary protection policies are one of the main reasons why we have not been searching for life on Mars during the last 40 years. Relaxing the policies will allow for resuming a serious biological exploration of the planet,” Fairén told Astrowatch.net.

    Major evolutionary events of life on Earth represented together with the possible trajectory of a hypothetical martian biosphere. The origin of life could have occurred on Earth, on Mars, or on both planets, and then transferred from one to the other.

    Fairén and his colleagues see a paradox in the implementation of the current planetary protection policy. In their study, they underline that this policy aims to prevent contamination of celestial bodies to avoid their harmful contamination, but on the other hand, it proclaims that the conduct of scientific investigations of possible extraterrestrial life forms, precursors, and remnants must not be jeopardized.

    The researchers suggest that the current cleanliness standards required in order to enter Special Regions on Mars are too high what results in missing many opportunities to explore these areas today. For instance, NASA’s Curiosity rover was recently forbidden to inspect a readily accessible recurring slope lineae to confirm whether they contain briny liquid water. Thus another robotic mission needs to be sent to Mars in order to do what Curiosity could do presently in Gale Crater.

    “Protection is needed, but not the current overprotection. Current policies put Special Regions just out of the reach of any biological exploration. We advocate for relaxing the policies and allowing access to Special Regions to robots with Curiosity-like cleanliness level,” Fairén said.

    Fairén’s team entitled their study “Searching for Life on Mars Before It Is Too Late” as they emphasize how much important is the quick implementation of a revised planetary protection policy. Given that NASA’s goal is to send humans to Mars in 2030s, there is not much time to determine whether any indigenous life exists on the Red Planet before astronauts set foot on the Martian surface, exposing this planet to an unprecedented level of terrestrial bioburden.

    “What we highlight here is a problem of timing: if we had still 50 or 70 years with no forecasted human presence on Mars ahead of us, we could sympathize with more conservative approaches for searching for extant martian life, but manned missions are already planned and budgeted for less than 20 years from today,” the researchers wrote in the paper.

    The authors of the study propose a relaxation of the current policy by mainly allowing immediate access to the Special Regions for vehicles with the cleanliness level of Curiosity, NASA’s Mars 2020 Rover, or ESA’s ExoMars mission.

    “ExoMars is likewise banned to come close to Special Regions, with the result that it will be cleared to search for life everywhere on Mars except in the places where we suspect life might exist,” Fairén noted.

    The study suggests that it would be necessary to reevaluate the current restrictions, making sure that the spacecraft cleanliness level for biological reconnaissance and the spacecraft cleanliness level for planetary protection are properly set to ensure searching for microbial life on the Martian soil.

    Moreover, the researchers urge that our existing laboratory robotic technology is made flight ready in the search for biochemical evidence of life. They also support the idea of the development of robotic nucleic acid sequencing instrumentation for future in-situ detection and sample return mission.

     Vanuit heel Vlaanderen kwamen vanochtend meldingen binnen van een grote vuurbol aan de hemel. “Dat moet een heel heldere vallende ster geweest zijn”, zegt weerman Frank Deboosere. 

    Tijdens de ochtendshow van Linde Merckpoel op Studio Brussel maakte een luisteraar als eerste melding van het fenomeen. Werd eerst nog de mogelijkheid geopperd dat hij misschien wat teveel had gedronken, quod non, dan stroomden er nadien vanuit heel Vlaanderen berichten binnen van luisteraars die meldden dat ze die heldere flits ook waargenomen hadden.

    Volgens weerman Frank Deboosere ging het om een vuurbol, een zeer heldere vallende ster. “Het moet een steentje van een centimeter of enkele centimeters geweest zijn, maar als dat de atmosfeer induikt, kan het zo helder zijn als een volle maan.”

    In late September, SpaceX founder Elon Musk traveled to the International Astronautical Congress in Adelaide, Australia to update the world on his company’s plans for taking humanity to Mars.

    The International Astronautical Federation released the official video of his talk Monday, offering a new chance to see Musk’s plans. As Inverse reported in September, the big takeaway from the presentation is that Musk now believes SpaceX has found a way to pay for the company’s Mars ambitions.

    The key, Musk explained, is through the development of the BFR — which supposedly stands for Big Falcon Rocket but, you know, the “F” probably stands for something else — to replace the existing Falcon 9 and the long-planned Falcon Heavy.

    Bigger than the Saturn V that took the Apollo astronauts to the moon, this larger rocket would be able to take on all conceivable tasks in low-Earth orbit. Its reusability would, according to Musk, make it the cost-effective rocket to fly per cost of launch. This would make it the ideal workhorse for ferrying people and cargo the International Space Station and elsewhere around our planet.

    Part of the plan even calls for using the BFR for passenger flights between any two points on Earth in less than an hour — though experts tell Inverse there’s reason to be skeptical of Musk’s math here.

    Looking beyond Earth, Musk set 2022 as the “aspirational” date for the first two uncrewed SpaceX cargo ships to reach Mars, with 2024 as the similarly ambitious target date for the first human visitors. He also suggested the BFR could be used to help build a lunar outpost, which he gave the nerd-friendly name Moon Base Alpha.

    While SpaceX has previously made Musk’s talk available as a webcast, this video from the IAF is just the headliner for a treasure trove of newly uploaded talks and discussions from the weeklong conference. What had largely been available just as a series of shakily shot periscopes is now online as official, high-definition YouTube videos. Any hardcore space nerds would do well to check them all out, but here are a few of our favorites.

    Here’s a panel discussion looking ahead to the prospect of the first woman on the moon.

    Here’s noted science guy Bill Nye discussing the LightSail, his crowdfunded solar sail project.

    And here’s a look at SpaceX competitor Lockheed Martin’s own plans for the red planet, known as Mars Base Camp.

    SM5_7114

    Sophia, the humanoid robot, wants to crowdfund the development of advanced artificial intelligence through a token-based system where users can buy and sell services in a marketplace. SingularityNET, the project that will enable this exchange, announced Tuesday an upcoming token sale that will help Sophia expand her capabilities.

    The company describes a “global brain” with multiple A.I. systems working together to complete tasks. Developers can create new A.I.s, and users can pay to take advantage of their services through blockchain payments similar to the technology behind Bitcoin. SingularityNET is working with Cindicator, a predictive intelligence for asset management, to grow their A.I. needs.

    It’s a markedly different approach to A.I. development tha the likes of Google and Facebook, which have instead depended on creating systems that benefit their overall business model. For instance, Facebook revealed this week that it was using A.I. to identify when users are thinking of suicide.

    That’s a feature that could have much wider-ranging social benefits, but it’s also one designed specifically with the needs of Facebook’s social network in mind as opposed to being built expressly for the general benefit of humanity — and, as Sophia would point out, the benefit of other sentiences.

    Sophia herself, whose title these days is Hanson Robotics’ “Chief Humanoid Officer,” took to video to cut a promo for SingularityNET.

    The company will start selling tokens on December 8 at noon Eastern time. The amount of tokens available during the crowdsale depends on how many are sold during the as-yet unfinalized private sales. When 500 million tokens are sold for the value of $36 million between the crowd and private sales, the overall sale will end.

    Pre-registration will take place through the company’s whitelist page, where potential buyers can note their interest and set a contribution amount.

    Read the abstract for the company’s whitepaper on its A.I. services marketplace below, which is available in full here.

    The value and power of Artificial Intelligence is growing dramatically every year, and will soon dominate the internet – and the economy as a whole. However, AI tools today are fragmented by a closed development environment; most are developed by one company to perform one task, and there is no way to plug two tools together. SingularityNET aims to become the key protocol for networking AI and machine learning tools to form a coordinated Artificial General Intelligence.

    SingularityNET is an open-source protocol and collection of smart contracts for a decentralized market of coordinated AI services. Within this framework, the benefits of AI become a global commons infrastructure for the benefit of all; anyone can access AI tech or become a stakeholder in its development. Anyone can add an AI/machine learning service to SingularityNET for use by the network, and receive network payment tokens in exchange.

    SingularityNET is backed by the SingularityNET Foundation, which operates on a belief that the benefits of AI should not be dominated by any small set of powerful institutions, but shared by all. A key goal of SingularityNET is to ensure the technology is benevolent according to human standards, and the network is designed to incentivize and reward beneficial players.

    Stil alarm na UFO ter grootte van Boeing boven vliegveld Beek. Zijn we bezocht door iets van 'elders'?

    Stil alarm na UFO ter grootte van Boeing boven vliegveld Beek. Zijn we bezocht door iets van ‘elders’?

    Maandagavond kwam bij de redactie een opmerkelijke UFO-melding binnen van een persoon die naar eigen zeggen als technicus werkzaam is op vliegveld Beek. De getuige wenst anoniem te blijven.

    Mensen die meer weten over onderstaand voorval of er getuige van zijn geweest mogen zich (desgewenst anoniem) melden bij de redactie of een reactie achterlaten onder dit artikel.

    Hieronder de melding in zijn geheel:

    Ik ben professional in de luchtvaarttechniek en op 24-11-17 om 04.35 am is er stil alarm geslagen op vliegveld Beek in Limburg. Dit stil alarm is bedoeld voor bepaalde risicovluchten, wij verwerken veel transportvliegtuigen en zware metalen.

    Als er met aanvliegroutes drukte is en weersomstandigheden niet optimaal zijn dan maken wij gebruik van dit alarm.

    Dit is meer een oproep tot briefing voor waakzaamheid. Het stil alarm wordt ook gebruikt voor als belangrijke personen landen.

    Luchtvoertuig

    Het gebeurt regelmatig dat VIPs in Beek landen en voor sommige hoge lieden die naar de TEFAF-beurs gaan wordt er zelfs van ‘de stille’ gebruikgemaakt.

    Het alarm is dus niet voor de inzet van nooddiensten, wel om deze paraat te houden (bij stil alarm naast brandweer ook medische VAC).

    Wat er gisteren gebeurde is dat wij gebriefd werden, maar niet over deze standaardkwesties. Het stil alarm was ingezet voor een mogelijk noodscenario, een luchtvoertuig dat wel op de radar verscheen maar geen responder had, ook niet reageerde op radiosignalen.

    Iets van ‘elders’

    Als dit ergens anders gebeurde zouden er F16’s naast vliegen. Maar er was geen tijd voor. Het object naderde de radar (ten zuiden van de verkeerstoren en ook opgemerkt op de secundaire radar), wat ik hoorde, met een snelheid van meer dan 2000 km/h.

    Het verdween van de radar en wij denken dat we te maken hebben met iets ‘van elders’. Het is niet militair. Initieel dachten wij aan een crash, maar na het bekijken van de data bleek dat het object ook onder de horizon van de radar is verdwenen en dus niet meetbaar.

    In de verkeerstoren zagen ze wel een vertraging, en daarna een acceleratie. Het is een object dat op radar is waargenomen ter grootte van een [Boeing] 777.

    Instructies

    Wij hebben instructies gekregen er niet over te praten, maar ik ben toch benieuwd naar de waarheid.

    Een paar collega’s die zich bezighouden met de nieuwe lijndiensten voor het vrachtverkeer praten wel eens over annenaku en zijn nu stil en doodsbang.

    Ze maken dan een grapje terwijl ze eerst bloedserieus waren. Ik dacht altijd dat ze complotgekkies waren, maar nu vraag ik mezelf af of er niet iets meer speelt.

    Want het gaat best om veel medewerkers die hiervan gehoord hebben en er angstig om zijn. Ik zeg jullie eerlijk dat ik er niet in geloof, misschien worden we gefopt. Maar waarom zijn ze dan zo bang.

    Als jullie contacten hebben kun je dit nagaan want ook de verkeerstorens in Brussel, Luik en Londen weten hiervan.

    Ik kan je zeggen dat de hele nacht mensen hebben zitten zweten zonder te weten waarom, standby en overwerk, en nu klagen over de baas, het salaris enzo. Ik houd deze melding anoniem. benieuwd of jullie iets weten dus ik houd deze site in de gaten!

    Plaats, datum en tijd:

    Plaats: Beek, Limburg

    Datum: 24-11-2017

    Tijd: 04.35 am

    UFO-kenmerken:

    Kleur: onbekend

    Grootte: vergelijkbaar met 777 op civiele radar

    Vorm: tetragonaal denken wij uit analyse van data, maar dat ligt aan onze apparatuur

    Vliegrichting: 2000 km/h , alles tussen 100m en 10km altitude

    De 100m is waar hij verdween richting (over) Zeebrugge (laatste waarneming). Object kwam uit de richting 224 vanaf N en boog af, een vreemde slowdown en acceleratie hier in Limburg boven Beek.

    Ik werk niet aan de data dus hier moet je het mee doen, ik wil niet ontslagen worden namelijk, dit is ongeveer wat iedereen hier inmiddels weet intern.

    Oud-medewerker NASA claimt 2,7 meter lange alien te hebben gezien. Spreekt hij de waarheid?

    Een voormalig medewerker van NASA zegt een 2,7 meter lang buitenaards wezen te hebben gezien in één van de Amerikaanse spaceshuttles.

    Hij keek naar eigen zeggen toe hoe het wezen een gesprek voerde met astronauten.

    Diverse UFO-websites beweren dat dit onomstotelijk bewijs is voor een wereldwijde samenzwering waarbij onze leiders in het geheim samenwerken met aliens. Anderen zijn daar minder zeker van.

    35 jaar
    Oud-medewerker NASA claimt 2,7 meter lange alien te hebben gezien. Spreekt hij de waarheid?

    Clark McClelland

    Clark C. McClelland deed de uitspraak in een video die recentelijk werd opgedoken.

    Hij beweert 35 jaar voor NASA te hebben gewerkt, onder meer aan het Apolloprogramma.

    Er is fotomateriaal van McClelland in spaceshuttle Columbia in 1992 en er is nog niemand geweest die heeft gezegd dat de man niet voor NASA heeft gewerkt.

    Vrachtruimte

    Hij volgde een spaceshuttlemissie vanuit het Kennedy Space Center, toen hij iets zag wat er niet hoorde te zijn: een slanke alien die in de vrachtruimte van de spaceshuttle een gesprek voerde met twee astronauten.

    Hij zei in de buurt van de spaceshuttle ook een buitenaards schip te hebben gezien.

    Overheden

    McClelland: “Ik herken een alien of een buitenaards schip gelijk. Ze zijn hier op aarde, ze leven onder ons. Ze zitten mogelijk zelfs in verschillende van onze aardse overheden.”

    Meer informatie over McClelland is te vinden op zijn website Stargate Chronicles.

    Never Before Seen Bacteria Growing on Outside of Space Station

    “And now it turns out that somehow these swabs reveal bacteria that were absent during the launch of the ISS module. That is, they have come from outer space and settled along the external surface.”

    While the rest of humanity is looking on solar system moons and faraway exoplanets for signs of extraterrestrial life, a Russian cosmonaut revealed that he has already found it and it’s closer than you think – on the outside of the International Space Station. Are we analyzing it … or vice versa?

    In an interview with TASS (yes, the Russian media let this alien cat out of the bag, NASA), cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov, busy preparing for his third trip to the International Space Station on December 17th, revealed that during his previous 365 days in space he encountered what he describes as life that was not brought to the ISS by humans or floated up on its own but has “come from outer space.”

    Shkaplerov explained that he and other cosmonauts out on spacewalks used sterile cotton swabs to collect samples from the outer skin of the space station, especially from remote and obscure places where other spacewalkers haven’t looked before (hear that, NASA?). Wow. How did they determine that what they swabbed was some sort of alien bacteria?

    After that, the samples were sent back to Earth.”

    Ahhhh! Really?

    They are being studied so far and it seems that they pose no danger.

    Key words in cosmonaut Shkaplerov’s statement: “so far” and “it seems.” Yes, bacteria samples have been found on the outside of the ISS before – that’s how researchers found terrestrial bacteria that reached space via some sort of ionospheric lift and survived the vacuum and severe temperature shifts of space for years. They’ve also studied microorganisms inside the ISS and observed that space can cause them to mysteriously shape-shift, making them hardier. According to Dr. Luis Zea, one of the researchers:

    We knew bacteria behave differently in space and that it takes higher concentrations of antibiotics to kill them.

    All the more reason to keep them in space rather than on Earth, right?

    Too late.

    Why hasn’t NASA said anything about this? Does it know all about the alleged alien bacteria and was planning to keep it quiet? There are American and international astronauts onboard the ISS and Cosmonaut Shkaplerov himself worked at the Johnson Space Center in Houston from April–October 2007 as Director of Operations for the Russian Space Agency. Now he’s returning to the space station with NASA astronaut Scott Tingle and Norishige Kanai of JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency).

    What will Shkaplerov be looking for on this mission? Is he taking bigger cotton swabs? Stronger antibiotics? Petri dishes with tougher locks? Phasers?

    As we continue to invent more powerful telescopes and farther-reaching proves, humankind may have finally made contact with life from outside of our own planet much more close to home. That’s according to Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov, who will make this third trip to the International Space Station in December. Shkaplerov recently said in an interview that he had personally discovered foreign microbes growing on the side of the ISS.

    While it’s awesome to imagine that these bacteria might be our first extraterrestrial contact, there is the likelihood that the bacteria were still introduced via contamination from earthly sources. Bacteria from Madagascar and plankton from the Barents Sea were found growing on the ISS earlier this year, forcing scientists to suggest raising the upper limits of the known biosphere to 400 km (248 miles). While we imagine space as empty, the space directly around the Earth can be affected by our planet through a number of processes.

    Samples are routinely taken from various locations on the outside of the space station.

    The remarks of cosmonaut Shkaplerov adds a new strand the web of strangeness surrounding Russia and the International Space Station. Earlier this year, the Russian space agency Roscosmos hinted at the discovery of foreign biomaterial on the outside of the space station, prompting a flyby from an American mystery satellite. Soon after, Roscosmos sent a mysterious, unidentified module up to the ISS for some sort of undisclosed experiment. Could this be the beginning of a new chapter of human history, or is Russian state media engaging in some good ol’ fashioned disinformation?

    “Britain’s Roswell” to Receive Full Hollywood Makeover

    During the past three-and-a-half decades, Britain’s most famous/notorious UFO case has been the subject of numerous booksarticles and documentaries. It has also generated some of the most fierce and downright nasty feuds the UFO field has ever known. We are, of course, referring to the Rendlesham Forest incident, in which US military personnel bore witness to baffling events just outside of RAF Woodbridge near Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, on the nights of December 26 and 28, 1980.

    Despite having embedded itself firmly into UFO lore and having made the occasional dent in official culture as tabloid fodder, those Rendlesham UFOs—whatever they were—never managed to plant their landing gear fully into our pop-cultural landscape. That may be about to change, however.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures Television has teamed up with UK-based Eleventh Hour Films forRendlesham, a major new TV drama based on the UFO incident(s).

    Joe Ahearne.

    The show is to be helmed by award-winning writer/director Joe Ahearne (Doctor Who). Co-producer Eve Gutierrez told the Hollywood Reporter:

    “Joe is a master story-teller with a long-standing fascination for science-fiction so we were totally thrilled when the Rendlesham story sparked for him… Now, working with Sony Pictures Television, we are looking forward to bringing this timely, other-worldly story to the global market.”

    President of international production at Sony Pictures Television, Wayne Garvie, added:

    The Cold War, Cruise Missiles, UFOs—Joe is taking extraordinary tales and giving them even more compelling twists. As a local lad, I can’t wait to see him bring his vision of Suffolk to the world.

    Ahearne himself remarked:

    When Eleventh Hour Films drew my attention to this extraordinary piece of British and American history it pressed all my buttons and I think it will do the same for a wide audience.”

    It sounds like an ambitious project, and its source material is ripe for serious dramatic treatment. Could Rendlesham be the production that finally does justice to the mysterious events of those two fantastical nights in the harsh English winter of 1980, or will this sci-fi dramatization serve to further blur the boundaries between fact and fantasy in the popular consciousness? Either way, “Britain’s Roswell” is now set to receive it’s full Hollywood makeover and to join its iconic American cousin in the global spotlight.

    Extremely Bizarre Encounters with Truly Surreal Mystery Humanoids

    When looking at sightings reports of strange creatures and mysterious entities every so once in a while one comes across something that just seems to exist out in its own sphere of bizarreness, something so incredibly odd that it falls outside of any known category and which leave us utterly baffled. I have covered extremely bizarre cryptids of all shapes and sizes here at Mysterious Universe before, on more than one occasion in fact, as well as very unusual entities that are thought to be aliens, but at other times there is just no real classification to put some reports in, and it is not immediately clear if we are supposed to be dealing with a mystery animal, a ghost, a demon, and inter dimensional being, or what. These cases swirl about there on the outer edges of strangeness, seeming to defy us and challenge us to try and make sense of them. Here I bring you a selection of out there reports concerning humanoid creatures that lie squarely entrenched in the realm of the truly unexplained. From deer-headed men, to bizarre stick figures, to other less definable things and more, here are some of the weirdest.

    It was getting dark and I was the one searching. I heard leaves crumpling, and when I turned to look, I saw what looked like a deer on its hind legs. I clearly remember seeing “dog legs” running, but the rest of the body was straight up. And it ran with incredible speed, and I knew it wasn’t either of my cousins hiding. I ran as fast as I could back to the house, and my one of my cousins was running in too, he saw the same thing. It still creeps me out to this day, because my uncle always told us how he saw weird things on that property.

    A sighting of a similar creature that appears to have also had the ability of shapeshifting was made in the state of Delaware in 1993. The witness claims that he was around 8 years old at the time and he had been staying with his family at his grandparents’ house in a rural, forested area near the town of Hockessin. One morning he says he woke to a clear day with the sun shining in through the window and also the surreal sight of the silhouette of a deer with a huge rack of antlers standing just outside. Things would get bizarre rapidly, and the witness says of what happened next thus:

    It was RIGHT there, like almost pressed against the window in profile. I stared in awe.
    And that is when it changed. In one smooth movement, it reared up on its hind legs and it was no longer a deer, but a man. There were only two men in the area, my grandfather and my dad, and it was clearly neither (not sure if that made it better or worse). Grandfather was very built for his age, dad had a gut. This silhouette was clearly younger, muscular but not in the “like a brick” way my grandfather was. It exuded strength. And scared the hell out of me. It stared to the side for a moment, and then strode off with purpose. Looking back, I want to tell myself it was just the imagination of a half-awake child, but I remember the awe and the utter fear I felt when the “deer” changed.

    Yet another Deer Man sighting was made as recently as 2012, in the Wichita Mountains of Oklahoma. In this account, a Kyle Heying claims that he was out at the Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge in order to take photographs of the night sky there with a friend. On this evening at around 10 PM, the usual sounds of the forest suddenly became muted and the local wildlife started to display some decidedly bizarre and uncharecteristic behavior. First some elk came running by and then a herd of bison, which all came uncomfortably close before hurrying off, and it seemed almost as if these animals were trying to get away from something scaring them out in the dark forest beyond.

    This was enough to spook the men into packing up their stuff and calling it a night, and as they did they allegedly felt a strange change in air pressure and all of the sounds of the woods just stopped to send a profound silence crashing down upon them. The two unsettled men then heard something rustling about out in some tall grass nearby, jarring in the otherwise void of silence that had blanketed the area, and it seemed like whatever it was was coming towards them. Haying claims that he and his friends had then picked up some rifles they had with them, wary of what was apparently approaching. They started the car and began to drive off when they saw something step out in front of the vehicle that they would never forget, a creature which Heying described as having a head like an elk but which stood upright on two human legs and which had two human arms and “dark red” eyes. As they passed it, the nightmarish creature lurched forward to hit the car, and Heying floored it away as fast as the vehicle would go until they were about 3 miles away, where they stopped their flight to regain their wits. Heying would say of what happened next thus:

    We were scared shitless. Things got even quieter when we stayed there. While there we heard one ear-piercing screech or scream, almost a hunting screech of some sort that made my hair stand on end and gave me goose bumps even worse. With that we left the mountains completely, we felt as though we were not wanted there that night. The way the wildlife acted, the figure that we came across that the animals had to have ran from, and then the scream of which I can only find references to happens to be the Banshee. I cannot forget that figure we saw, as well as the scream. It was not human but it was not of any wildlife I am familiar with from out there.

    What in the world could possibly account for what these witnesses saw? Just what kind of creature could these things possibly be and are any of these accounts connected in any way? No one knows. Deer men are not even the strangest of humanoid creatures to have been reported, and we’re just getting started. In summer of 2012 there was a head-scratching sighting near Washington Park, near Michigan City, Indiana, that is really hard to classify.

    The witness claims that she had been staying at the beach house of a friend by Lake Michigan and that there had been a lightning storm at the time. At around 2 AM some of them went outside to smoke and watch the lightning, and that was when they noticed the beam of a flashlight scanning the tall grass by the shore nearby as if searching for something. Thinking this to be a bit odd, the group of friends watched on and saw that the beam had captured an elongated, grayish humanoid looking creature stretched out on the beach, and the witness would say:

    The light sweeps by something in the grass, then it shines back onto it. What was illuminated was very strange. It appeared to be a naked guy crawling around on the grass. Although, it had elongated arms and legs. It was moving kinda fast crunched over. It only lasted a few seconds, long enough for all of us to see it. Then, after the thing ran off, the flashlight shines directly at us. It stayed pointing at us until it went out after a few seconds. Creepy.
    So, were all like WTF was that, we ask asked what each other saw. We all seen a weird stretched out naked guy. The only explainable thing it could have possibly been was a drunk gangly naked guy. But, I don’t think so because it looked abnormally stretched, the light pointed at us, and it freaked everyone out. It was something strange. I can’t say what the height of it was accurately, maybe around 7ft tall. My husband said it looked like something from a Marilyn Manson music video.I wanted to go down there. I wanted to see if we could find it. But, no one would go and they were creeped out and wanted to go back inside.

    What on earth was the outlandish thing they saw? What was with that flashlight and why did it train itself on the observers of this surreal scene? Who knows? In August of 2017 there was a series of sightings of a very strange humanoid figure on a farm near Boca Raton, Florida. The witness, who originally posted his experience on Reddit, says that on the 14th he saw something very unusual one evening at dusk as he was eating dinner and staring out over the property. He said that a very tall, grey colored humanoid that looked like the character “Gumby” lurched out of the tree line, took a few steps, and then went back into the forest lining the property. The witness says:

    It was flat but its legs bended in a way that looked like a plank bending. Like how a piece of wood bows when weight is put on it but springs back up when the weight is taken off. Its body, from where I could see it, was rigid. It didn’t look flexible aside from the legs and the limbs were fairly wide
    The next night, at the same time, the same exact thing happened except my parents were with me. It walked on two legs but it was more like lunges or arching steps than human walking.  I asked them if they saw that and they just said “saw what?”
    Then it happened AGAIN the third night. So either my body is giving me random hallucinations in sync with my body’s time clock or there’s some weird Slendergumby demon living on the farm behind my house. I haven’t been home much recently so I haven’t been able to look for it again but if I’m able to. I haven’t seen whatever it was since those three times and was unable to get a photo of it due to how far away it was. This was in the middle of a very populated city so seeing something this outlandish in a human heavy area was quite strange.

    If none of these are weird enough for you, then how about the disturbing number of reports of stick figures seen lurking in rural and deserted areas of the world? When I say stick figure I don’t mean simply something that is elongated and thin, but rather literally a stick figure, as if something a child might draw. This is what some people have apparently been sighting since at least 2008, and they are deeply bizarre to say the least. The Stick Figures are typically described as just that, tall and extremely thin dark beings with no discernible facial features and which move smoothly and fluidly, with some reports saying that they do not change dimensions no matter what angle they are observed from, as if they are actually 2D constructs, and others mentioning air pressure changes, static electricity, and a feeling of malevolence in their presence.

    The tales of these creatures certainly have an urban legend vibe to them, but are nevertheless numerous enough across the Internet to deserve mention. One early account from a man named Simon Howes seems to originate from all the way back in 1982, when a witness says he was studying to be a nurse at Warley Hospital, Brentwood in Essex, England, where he saw what can only be described as a stick figure while he was walking home one night. The witness says:

    I encountered a ‘stick person’ in the grounds of the Hospital as I was walking home one night. It lopped across the roadway having been, seemingly, pressed up against a wall. It stopped when it saw me and raised it’s arms in fright and quickly walked off into the undergrowth. It was very tall with very thin, extremely long arms and legs and a very small oval head. Totally black and no obvious clothing. I saw no face even though it emerged very near a street lamp and so was well illuminated. I was terrified and to this day, no-one believes me.

    Another such report comes from a witness named Damien Castellione, who claims that his sister and cousin saw one of the creatures when she was a kid at their aunt’s funeral. The witness says:

    You know my sister told me that she saw a stick man too when she was a kid. back then it was our aunt’s funeral and she was sitting outside the funeral when she noticed a strange “stick like person” walking back and forth above the electric wiring of the pole in front of the funeral that is (she is more or less 10 walking distance away from the pole). She got really frightened and she told our cousin to look at it, at first our cousin didn’t believe her but after a few minutes she saw the stick man too and both of them got terrified they told our cousin’s mom if she saw the stickman and she said no. it took several hours, it was noon – until dawn before it faded away. she told the story to me and I had doubts but when I saw this article I was like.. wow I never thought a lot of people saw a stickmen too from around the world.

    Some of these unearthly creatures have even been apparently photographed, although the quality of this evidence leaves much to be desired. Such reports have actually pored in from all corners of the globe, and it seems to be a phenomenon for which there is no clear answer. Is this just an urban legend in the making? If these stick-like figures are actually real then what could they possibly be? Aliens? Inter-dimensional beings or ghosts? What? Whatever they are or aren’t, actual literal stick figures prowling darkened roads and woods at night have to rank right up there as among the oddest, most bizarre things anyone could expect to come across.

    It seems that the world of strange sightings can often truly veer off into completely uncharted territory and things that seem unable to truly be classified, existing in their own fringe world of sheer, utter insanity. There they lurk in the dim confines of a realm we have no understanding of and of which many do not even know is there at all. These are things for which there is no easy way to classify, things which seem to have lurched out of some sort of horror story. What are these creatures, if anything? How can we explain these oddities and anomalies? If we can glean anything from this it is that these are some truly strange bizarre sightings out there that defy conventions, and which may never cease to puzzle.

    Giant 3-Mile-Wide Asteroid 3200-Phaethon to Shave Earth’s Orbit before Christmas

    A mysterious 3-mile-wide asteroid is going to buzz our planet before Christmas.

    Although NASA has classified it has a ‘potentially hazardous asteroid’ and Russian astronomers have warned that the object will fly past ‘quite close there is no chance it will hit us as it will pass 6.4 million miles from Earth on December 17, 2017.


    The huge asteroid 3200 Phaethon is named after the Greek demi-god who according to the legend, borrowed the sun chariot from his father the God Helios, however, Phaethon was unable to control the horses and nearly set the Earth on fire due to the misdriving of the sun’s chariot before being killed by Zeus who was forced to kill Phaethon with a thunderbolt to avoid a disaster.

    The asteroid 3200 Phaethon is the long-sought parent body of the Geminids meteor shower. The meteor shower which can be seen from December 4-16, 2017 reaching its peak around December 13 while asteroid 3200 Phaethon will also be bright enough to see in small telescopes.

    Phaethon which means ‘the shining one’ will probably bring some nice fireworks in the sky.

    ‘Mystery Animal’ Sought in Horrific Sheep Mutilations

    Farmers in the Niali district of India are reporting a series of horrific sheep mutilations that has seen five sheep killed in three separate villages this week. All of the sheep were found eviscerated with their livers almost surgically removed through their abdomens. Unidentified footprints have been found near the scenes of the crimes, reports local news outlet Kalinga TV, but the identity of the animal (or whatever) responsible is still unknown. These new mutilations bring this month’s death toll to close to thirty sheep.

    Some of the most recent victims.

    Some of the most recent victims.

    It seems something has developed a taste for sheep in the rural Niali region of India. Over the last few months, hundreds of sheep have been brutally slain and mutilated despite the best efforts of forest officials and local wildlife experts. The culprit has never been caught, much less identified. Local shepherd Nilamani Das told Times of India that sheep farmers in the area are terrified by the unexplained killings which follow the pattern of a series of mutilations earlier this year:

    We sustained huge losses after our sheep were killed by unknown animal in June. We were not compensated also. With much difficulty we started our lives again and see the predator has come again to haunt us.

    Forest officials, meanwhile, are clueless, replying only with “We are trying our best to catch the killer animal.” Sheep farmers have taken to guarding their flocks at night and even sleeping among the animals to protect them from whatever could lurk in the shadows.

    It's been a bad year to be a sheep.

    It’s been a bad year to be a sheep.

    While these killings sound awfully reminiscent of many mythological creatures like the Chupacabra, the animal’s identity and motivation is likely a much sadder tale. Changing climate patterns and continued human population growth have pushed many once-elusive animals into direct contact with humans. Unfortunately, this growth has meant bringing our livestock directly to these predators whose once plentiful prey and habitat are now long gone. Sure, maybe it’s a horrible nightmarish beast. But maybe, though, the creature is us. Maybe we are the nightmarish beast, bumbling our way towards causing a mass extinction with our insatiable growth. Until the killer in Niali is caught, there’s no telling for sure what might be prowling in the darkness.

    Proof of alien life? Russian cosmonauts find bacteria on the hull of the ISS that's NOT from Earth

    The bacteria is currently undergoing testing - and so far it's not harmful to humans

    By Jeff ParsonsTech/Science Reporter

    Russian cosmonauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) may have discovered the first case of alien life after allegedly finding bacteria on the hull of the space station.

    This bacteria was not there at the launch of the ISS and therefore could have come from outer space.

    "Bacteria that had not been there during the launch of the ISS module were found on the swabs," confirmed Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov, who was part of a team of scientists aboard the orbiting station.

    Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov

    "That is, they came from somewhere in outer space and settled on the outside of the station," he told a Russian news outlet

    Flight engineer Shkaplerov will take his third trip to the ISS in December as part of the Expedition 54 crew. He revealed that scientists found the bacteria while taking samples from the exterior surface of the station during a previous mission.

    They are currently being analysed to find out if they really are extra-terrestrial in nature. Some bacteria originating from Earth (specifically, Madagascar) has been found to survive the vacuum of space after being lifted off our planet by a phenomenon known as "ionosphere lift".

    It has been known to attach itself to the surface of the space station which is orbiting 20km above the Earth.

    Cosmanaut Shkaplerov insisted that the bacteria found on the station is not dangerous to humans.

    One Scientist Has a Plan to Send the Building Blocks of Life to Distant Exoplanets

    by Kristin Houser and Brad Bergan

    IN BRIEF
    A German theoretical physicist has proposed a modification to the first-ever interstellar spacecraft that would allow it to decelerate enough to orbit an exoplanet and potentially seed a second Earth. However, the 12,000-year-long transit time could make garnering support for the mission difficult.

    Egocentric Enterprise

    For the past 30 years, popular opinion about where in space humans should go next has swayed between a new mission to the Red Planet and a return to the Moon. Considering the smorgasbord of problems we’ve made for ourselves on planet Earth, from ecological to economic, such goals of exploration and colonization can have an egoistic, even selfish, root — we may need to find a new home due to the aforementioned problems and a litany of unmentioned ones.

    However, even the most optimistic colonization estimates are measured in decades, and there’s no guarantee that we’ll survive the rest of this century, let alone long enough to effectively expand humanity throughout the galaxy. But what if, right now, we could start the process of seeding life on other worlds? Humanity may not survive, but some form of life could.

    Claudius Gros, theoretical physicist at Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, thinks we should consider it. He believes seeding life throughout the cosmos takes precedence over human colonization, and he also believes this process of intentionally seeding other planets in the universe with life, more succinctly known as deliberate panspermia, is within our technological capability.

    Breakthrough Starshot is an ambitious plan to send the first probe ever to Alpha Centauri, our nearest neighboring star after the Sun, using a laser propulsion system.

    That trip is expected to take about 20 years and will require that a probe weighing just one gram be accelerated to a speed of 160 million kmh (100 million mph), or one-fifth the speed of light. The probe won’t have a braking system and is expected to whiz by the star hours after reaching it, just enough time to take pictures to transmit back to Earth.

    In a recent study published in Journal of Physics Communications, Gros proposes that we use the same laser propulsion system to send a 1.5-ton spacecraft at slower speeds so we can do more than just take pictures. He wants to achieve a stable exoplanet orbit and seed other worlds with life via onboard “mini labs” that would grow genes and cells. The stated objective is TRAPPIST-1, but other exoplanets, such as the recently discovered Ross 128b, are also under consideration.

    The Long Haul

    Gros’ hypothetical 1.5-ton spacecraft for seeding life would launch from Earth, and huge, Earth-based lasers directed at the probe’s 50-kilometer-wide (31-mile-wide) light sail would propel it to roughly 30 percent of the speed of light for part of its journey.

    Unlike the tiny probe used for the Alpha Centauri mission, Gros’ spacecraft would need to be able to stop once it reached its destination, though, so he devised a way to do so using a magnetic sail that would generate friction with protons. This will allow the craft to decelerate en route, much like letting a car coast to full stop on the highway.

    “The reason for the magnetic sail is to create a magnetic field without loss of energy,” Gros told Futurism. “You don’t want to expend energy, so you generate the field once, and then with a superconducting loop, the current stays forever, and the magnetic field stays forever.”

    seeding life

    The above depicts an ionized proton (blue) undergoing deflection via magnetic field (magenta).

    According to Gros, the magnetic sail would have a radius of roughly 50 kilometers (31 miles), and each of its loops would generate a magnetic field. These fields would shift the momentum of the probe to whatever particles it encountered. Essentially, the protons between the Earth and the probe’s destination would create the friction it needed to decelerate.

    It may seem strange to imagine a giant probe being slowed down by something as small and insignificant as protons. Further complicating the situation is the fact that scientists suspect that remnants of ancient supernovae may have swept gasses out of the space surrounding our solar system and those near it, thereby lowering the density of matter.

    However, Gros explained that even with that lower concentration of matter, his design could provide the necessary friction to slow the hypothetical spacecraft enough to orbit, and not flyby, an exoplanet. “You can brake via friction from the interstellar medium,” he said.

    The catch is that the added mass needed to provide deceleration puts a 12,000-year timeframe on his proposed journey to TRAPPIST-1. On a cosmic scale, that isn’t even a blink of an eye, but since humans rarely live past 100, no one alive now would survive to see our probe for seeding life reach its destination.

    A New Kind of Earth

    Recently, scientists have begun to theorize that the growing number of exoplanets discovered orbiting red dwarfs could have water and oxygen. These planets hadmuch longer periods of atmospheric cooling than the Earth had, which could have prevented life from forming on them back when it first emerged on Earth.

    “It took the Sun 10 million years to cool to about today’s temperature, but small stars, like TRAPPIST-1, remained hot for hundreds of millions of years,” Gros said.

    Consequently, he explained, the water vapor within the stratosphere of the TRAPPIST-1 planets was dissociated by the ultraviolet radiation of the host star into hydrogen and oxygen. Hydrogen escapes into space, as it is too light to be retained by an Earth-like planet, and the oxygen left behind accumulates.

    “If some of the seven TRAPPIST-1 planets still have an ocean, they would also have a massive oxygen atmosphere. Earth’s oxygen pressure is 0.2 bars, but on TRAPPIST-1-like planets, it could be 100 bar or more,” said Gros.

    This excess oxygen “eats up” biotic life, preventing protocell formation. Complex eukaryotes, which form the basis for present-day multi-cellular life, would never have had a chance to develop on an “oxygen planet.”

    “We could have millions or billions of habitable exoplanets, but sterilized by oxygen from the beginning,” said Gros. Consequently, the common objection that we should avoid interfering with the natural evolution of alien life would fall away — we wouldn’t be interfering with anything.

    The cosmic garden may await us, but the long transit time proposed by Gros may dissuade some from taking his seeding life project seriously. Even after the probe reached its destination, any life would take many billions of years to mature, Gros said.

    Gros’ initiative for seeding life throughout the cosmos, dubbed the Genesis Project, forces us to step back and take a look at what we’re doing on Earth.

    “If you are rational, you cannot argue a longterm project will have use on Earth, because no one will be around,” Gros said.

    To Gros, his hypothetical mission ultimately forces humanity to consider a metaethical question. The most natural ethical system for our species is one that places us in the center, and that’s largely how we live. But do we need to follow this imperative 100 percent of the time? Gros doesn’t think so.

    “An ethical system which is 99 percent humanity-centered is enough to build a thriving civilization, with the remaining 1 percent allowing us to pursue ‘non-rational’ projects like the Genesis project,” he told Futurism.

    UFO 'built with alien tech at Area 51 FOUND on Google Maps'

    A TOP secret UFO designed with alien technology has been discovered on Google Maps, a conspiracy theorist claims.

    By Tom Towers 

    Triangular TR-3B is said to have been created by the US military but subsequently hidden from the public.

    So-called truthers believe it was designed at military base Area 51 in the 1970s, while others claim they are flown by aliens visiting Earth.

    Now they believe they have found the mysterious object at a national park in Australia, Express.co.uk reports.

    A triangular formation is pictured on Google Earth between Badgingarra National Park and Wongonderrah Nature Reserve in western Australia.

    COVER-UP? So-called truthers believe the TR-3B was designed at military base Area 51

    We have no idea what it’s doing in Australia but I fully believe it’s real footage

    UFO hunter Mike Zeroh

    UFO hunter Mike Zeroh said on YouTube: “We have no idea what it’s doing in Australia but I fully believe it’s real footage and not a hoax and could be military aircraft or something from another planet perhaps.”

    Others claim the triangle formation is no longer showing up and claim there is a cover-up.

    One Google Map user posted: “The mysterious triangle was hidden from Google Maps? I am discovering many things…no use trying to hide the evidence.”

    However, others believe it merely forms part of a nearby remote-controlled wind farm.

    Alien hunters previously unearthed footage that apparently showed a TR-3B firing lasers.

    The blurry clip shows three lights hovering in the sky in a triangular formation.

    In the middle of those beams a portal appears to open and shoots something towards the ground.

    BLACK PROJECT? Has secret site of grounded TR-3B triangle UFO been found on Google Earth?

    A MYTHICAL top-secret "UFO" spy craft could exist and one of its secret hiding places may have been rumbled on Google Earth.

    Conspiracy theorists are excited after claims a TR-3B has been found on the ground in a remote part of Western Australia.

    TR-3B is alleged by conspiracy theorists to be a secret "black project" spy craft of the US Government that can be flown into space.

    The allegations are that these crafts are created at top-secret military bases like Area 51 in Nevada, by reverse engineering alien technology.

    Others claim they are actual UFOs flown by aliens visiting Earth.

    The field is located between Badgingarra National Park and Wongonderrah Nature Reserve.

    UFO? Conspiracy theorists claim this is a secret spy craft.

    The "TR-3B" can be found at coordinates 30°30'38.44"S 115°22'56.03"E one Google Earth.

    It appears as a large triangle with bright lights evenly placed around it, in the same way the TR-3B is said to have.

    UFO hunter Mike Zeroh said on YouTube: "We have no idea what its doing in Australia but I fully believe its real footage and not a hoax and could be military aircraft or something from another planet perhaps." 

    Some conspiracy theorists have even said the triangle no longer shows up amid claims of a cover up.

    One Google map user accused the platform of trying to “hide” the spot where the suspected UFO used to appear.

    RUMBLED? Is this a secret UFO spy craft or an optical illusion?

    We have no idea what its doing in Australia but I fully believe its real footage and not a hoax and could be military aircraft or something from another planet perhaps.

    They posted: "The mysterious triangle was hidden from Google Maps? I am discovering many things ... no use trying to hide the evidence.”

    The sighting has featured in many YouTube videos.

    One poster on YouTube said: "Research TR-3B Aurora. Wake up people!" 

    However, there is likely to be a less spooky explanation for the shape.

    Many viewers think it is an antenna that forms part of a nearby remote-controlled wind farm.

    With three sets of wires forming the triangle shape, and a tower in the middle, the antenna likely receives and transmits control signals.

    Ben Cinurts posted on YouTube: "It is an antennae mast site. Pretty obvious.

    "Notice the tracks that go around the perimeter. Six cable anchors, a barrier fence, and the mast in the center complete with shadow."

    Another added: "It's an antenna, note the shadow from it and the three cables supporting it have lights on them, this shot was taken early morning."

    Are ALIENS invading Australia? Chilling Google Maps image shows a mysterious UFO hovering above an Outback town - so what do you think it is?

    • A Darwin resident has claimed to have spotted a UFO on Google Maps
    • Dean Stocks was searching for an address in Tennant Creek on the digital map
    • Mr Stocks said he would be traveling to the area to inspect the sight for himself

    An Australian man has come across a rather strange image while searching for an address on Google Maps.

    Dean Stocks, from Darwin, was searching for a location in Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory when he saw what appeared to be a UFO on the digital map.

    Speaking to the NT News, Mr Stocks said he couldn't believe it.

    'I don't believe I've seen a sky boob before but I've read about them in picture magazines,' he said.

    'I know all the conspirators will have their say – it will be a reflection of the Tennant Creek watertank or something like that.'

    At closer inspection, the image does bear striking similarity to an alien spacecraft.

    However, it could also be a flash of light from the Google Maps camera or, as Mr Stocks suggested, a reflection of a nearby watertank.

    Darwin astronomer Geoff Carr told the publication the image was likely photoshopped. 

    Meanwhile, Mr Stocks said he would be traveling to Tennant Creek in a few weeks and would make a point of driving down Ambrose Street, the sight of the UFO image, to inspect the area for himself.

    Here are all the UFO sightings recorded across Europe

    Have you ever seen a strange light appear in the sky and wondered if it was an alien craft?

    Now you can work out if someone else saw the same thing – or if the bizarre sighting was the product of your fevered imagination.

    A website called UFO Stalker has collected together all the weird observations reported to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), an American organisation that investigates strange sightings in the sky. 

    Its figures reveal that a total of 83,715 sightings have been reported this year alone across the world, a 12 per cent increase on the number of sightings in 2016.

    Last month in the UK, there were a total of seven UFO observations.

     Australia is not a popular destination for aliens. Perhaps they are scared of spiders?

    On 15 November, one person claimed to have seen a UFO over Aberdeen.

    They said: ‘Standing at my kitchen window I noticed a very bright red and white light flashing every two seconds.

    ‘I instantly knew this was not a passenger plane or helicopter.

    ‘The object itself was travelling directly north. It just looked like a medium brightness star but had an intensely bright white and red light. The white light was stacked on top of the red light and they would pulse on and off every two seconds.’

    In Thornaby, Yorkshire, another person spotted a mysterious object on November 8 and wrote: ‘I went out into my front garden for a cigarette with my husband and looked up at the clouds.

    This photo of a flying saucer was taken by Paul Trent over his farm, in McMinnville, Oregon.

    ‘Above the houses across the street, I noticed a very bright, white, intermittent trail and when following the trail to the right noticed a small white glowing spot (orb?) moving in front of the clouds.

    ‘I told my husband to look at it but the trail had disappeared and he wasn’t able to see the orb before it disappeared; I’m not certain whether it went into the clouds or just disappeared.’

    The person who saw the UFO did not confirm whether anything a little stronger than tobacco was placed in the cigarette ahead of this sighting.

    The majority of UFO sightings were reported in the US, with 26 sightings taking place during November.

    On November 20, one person was zooming through Nob Hill, Albuquerque, in their car when something suddenly appeared in the sky.

    Sadly, UFO sightings are never quite as dramatic as this artist’s impression

    Their report said: ‘ I turned down a side street and saw a triangle shaped craft with lights that went up the side of it.

    ‘It was illuminated so it formed a V-shape.

    I stopped to pull over and look at it because I thought it was strange. Witnessed it for about 10 seconds before it was hidden behind a tree.

    ‘The airforce base is close by so I assumed it was a military aircraft but haven’t seen one like it before.

    UFO experts claimed that the number of sightings has increased in recent years.

    However, this could be blamed on the internet, which allows people to record their sightings but is also used to spread strange ideas and fake news.

    Did aliens ever visit Stonehenge – or have the druids been eating too many funny mushrooms again?

    Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, told MailOnline: ‘UFO Stalker is a brilliant visual guide to the location of UFO sightings, and shows the sheer scale of this phenomena over the last few years.

    ‘The downside of such a map is the quality of the sightings in its database, these should be carefully filtered if anyone really wants to establish geomagnetic or other links with UFO activity.

    ‘Clusters of sightings might, for example, be caused by increased media activity in an area, or a bright meteor or other mundane phenomena could also trigger a wave of UFO sightings.

    ‘Nonetheless, this is a handy way of presenting UFO data and is very helpful in helping pin down the weird things seen in our skies.’

    Eridu, the first city on Earth before the great flood, according to the Sumerian King List

    According to the Sumerian King List Eridu was the first city in the World. The opening line reads:

    “[nam]-lugal an-ta èd-dè-a-ba

    [eri]duki nam-lugal-la”

    “When kingship from heaven was lowered,

    the kingship was in Eridu.”

    Eridu (Coordinates: 30 ° 48’57.02 “N 45 ° 59’45.85” E) was an ancient city in southern Mesopotamia, 24 kilometers south of Ur in the current archaeological site of Tell Abu Shahrein. Eridu, also transliterated as Eridug, could mean “mighty place” or “guidance place” according to scholars who say this archaeological site is of great importance.

    At its foundation, it was most likely within walking distance of the Persian Gulf; however, currently, due to the accumulation of silt at the shoreline over the millennia remains of Eridu are now some distance from the gulf at Abu Shahrain in Iraq.

    Some scholars argue that in ancient Sumerian times Eridu was linked to the estuary by means of channels and according to the Babylonian epics, it was the first city created in the world.

    As noted by Sumerian mythology, the ancient city of Eridu was ONE of the FIVE ancient cities built on Earth before the great deluge.

    Eridu was the most southern city of the conglomerate of Mesopotamia and important center of the cult to the God of the water, Enki.

    In July 2016, UNESCO chose the archaeological site of tell Eridu as a Mixed Heritage of Humanity, as “part of the archaeological remains of Sumerian settlements in Lower Mesopotamia, which flourished between the third and fourth millennia BC in the delta formed by the Euphrates and Tigris rivers.”

    As noted by ancient Sumerian tradition, as well as the Sumerian King list, Eridu was the oldest of the cities of Mesopotamia, in whose location the god Marduk had created the world.

    Archaeologists have proven, through research in the twentieth century, that the lower levels of the city (level XIX) date back to at least 4900 B.C., at the beginning of the El Obeid period. Mainstream scholars suggest the city was founded in the 54th century BC.

    Egyptologist David Rohl has conjectured that Eridu, may have been the original Babel and site of the mythical Tower of Babel, rather than the later city of Babylon.

    In this first stage, the ceramic remains show a significant role of Eridu in the region.

    Towards 3800 BC (level VI) the city had an important temple and a cemetery from which a thousand graves have been discovered.

    Towards the year 2500 BC., during the archaic dynastic, a ruler, perhaps of the first dynasty of Ur, built a great palace in Eridu, and at the end of the III millennium BC, during the reign of Amar-Sin, a large ziggurat was built in the city, which remained an important religious center in the empire of the third dynasty of Ur.

    According to the Sumerian King list, the first ‘mythological’ kings, successors of the reign of heaven, are those of Eridu.

    The king list continues:

    In Eridu, Alulim became king; he ruled for 28800 years. Alalngar ruled for 36000 years. 2 kings; they ruled for 64800 years. Then Eridu fell and the kingship was taken to Bad-tibira.

    The Sumerian King list describes in unprecedented detail a time when the world was governed by beings referred to as ‘Gods’ for thousands of years. This is one of the main reasons why mainstream scholars suggest that the Sumerian King list is a mixture of prehistorical and mythological accounts and that those rulers who lived through implausibly lengthy reigns were not real, and were part of ancient folklore.

    Mainstream scholars see the age a ruler allegedly governed over the people as a reflection of his or her importance. The more years a king ruled, the more important he was. However, this is highly debated among many authors.

    This ancient city was one of the most important settlements in ancient times, and the urban nucleus of Eridu was Enki’s temple, called House of the Aquifer.

    After the kingship descended from heaven, the kingship was in Eridu.
