Russian Scientist Says Faking a Moon Landing is Harder Than Doing One
Russian Scientist Says Faking a Moon Landing is Harder Than Doing One
It’s the 100th anniversary of the birth of the Soviet Union’s most famous (and most hated by its leaders ) novelist — Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn – who brought the word “gulag” into the vocabulary of the Western world. A century later, a certain Russian space scientist may be glad those forced labor camps no longer exist (or do they?) after going against the leader of Russia’s space program and saying that not only does he believe that the U.S. landed humans on the moon, faking such a landing would be harder than actually accomplishing it. Hear that,lunar-landing-denier Steph Curry?
“Falsifying moon soil is impossible. The Americans brought back to Earth about 300 kilos of it, most of it basalt.”
“The question of whether the Americans landed on the moon in 1961-1972 is not controversial. However, there are still speculations on this topic in the world and mainly come from people who have nothing to do with space. You will not hear from any astronaut that the Americans have not landed on the moon.”
The “astronauts” Kostitsyn is referring to are Russian cosmonauts who know that the U.S. lunar space program was and still is far ahead of theirs. However, as a scientist, he looks for proof in the lunar rocks themselves, which he and other Russians were allowed to examine. He points out that although basalt came into existence on both the Earth and the moon at the same time, there are no old samples on Earth because of weathering. On the other hand, the samples from the moon are over 4 billion years old, far older than any rocks on Earth. In addition, they show a different form of weathering due to solar wind, which does not affect Earth rocks.
Then he goes after Dmitry Rogozin and Steph Curry.
“The Americans were very worried whether the USSR was going to arrange a trick on the moon – after all, at the same time as their mission, the USSR launched its probes on the moon. Of course, we did not have the task to harm them, it was – to get ahead. Staging the landing of American astronauts on the moon would be more difficult and more expensive than its actual implementation. Including because then this deception would have to be kept secret, which is not possible. NASA could classify its materials, but many independent firms participated in the implementation of Apollo.”
Even in the Soviet Union, with the threat of gulags and worse, it would be impossible to have so many different and independent parties keep such a massive hoax a secret for 50 years. Kostitsyn also points out that, while the U.S. seems to be focused on Mars, Russia is talking about establishing a base on the moon – a project that will require a better understanding of how much water is actually there and available.
“To build a base on the moon, you first need to establish life there and solve the problem of protecting people from space radiation. To do this, from the lunar substance to build shelters, and inside them to maintain the atmosphere. It is difficult to carry oxygen from Earth, therefore the water on the Moon is of primary interest – we need to understand how much water is there, how much water is available and how to get oxygen out of it.”
Oxygen and protection from radiation – two challenges Kostitsyn thinks are beyond the ability of Roscosmos and its goal of establishing a base in the 2030s.
“I think that humankind will not be able to fully live on the Moon soon. In the next decade, most likely, missions to the Moon will be resumed – both Russia, the USA and China have plans to launch orbiters there for the time being. Plans for the creation of manned moon descent modules remain at the level of theory.”
It’s discussions like this that remind us we need to listen more to scientists and less to NBA stars.
DeepMind is on the forefront of artificial intelligence (A.I.). The computer system it developed, known as AlphaZero, amazed (and terrified) the world in 2017 when it was able to defeat human chess masters at their own game, despite only learning it four hours previous to the matches. That machine has been tested numerous times by even more chess grandmasters, and now people are seeing it do something not yet seen within machines – it is improvising.
Not only was AlphaZero a master at chess, it has also taught itself games such as shogi, commonly called Japanese chess, and Go. In each attempt, AlphaZero was able to beat the previous world champions of the games, who were all human. On DeepMind’s website, developers say they are “thrilled” to see the program developing improvisation and intuition skills, which are not previously known to be in machines.
In a paper published in Science Magazine, it is stated the machine’s ability to master the complicated game of Go and defeat the world champion showed it had use of “deep convolutional neural networks” because it developed a massive knowledge of the game simply by playing it repeatedly to the point the writers of the paper said it has “superhuman performance” in the game.
Computers have been beating humans at chess since 1997, but the addition of shogi, which is far more complicated than chess, and Go, which relies on practice and intuition, shows AlphaZero is able to not only defeat humans at their own games, but ultimately learn how to do it in better and more efficient ways.
When pitted against another chess computer, Stockfish, AlphaZero won 155 of 1,000 matches, with six losses and the rest being draws. Unlike most chess-playing A.I.’s, however, AlphaZero does not prefer to save its pieces, instead opting to sacrifice them for the greater good.
This ability comes from what developers describe as a “neural network with millions of different tunable parameters, each learning its own rules of what is good in chess.” With all of these variables, the machine, much like a human, can look at a situation and know what the best thing to do is.
AlphaZero began with a blank slate mind, developing strategies and tactics based only on the basic rules of the games it plays. It developed its human-like ability to play games based on its experiences.
While many prominent thinkers such as Elon Musk have warned against A.I., citing the possibility such mechanical minds could ultimately lead to human extinction, DeepMind researchers believe studying the way this machine learns how to play games can lead to real issues, such as why proteins become misfolded in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. That protein folding conundrum is ultimately the goal of A.I.’s such as AlphaZero built by DeepMind.

Did Supernovae Kill Off Megalodon and Other Large Ocean Animals at Dawn of Pleistocene?
Did Supernovae Kill Off Megalodon and Other Large Ocean Animals at Dawn of Pleistocene?
About 2.6 million years ago, an oddly bright light arrived in the prehistoric sky and lingered there for weeks or months. It was a supernova some 150 light years away from Earth. Within a few hundred years, long after the strange light in the sky had dwindled, a tsunami of cosmic energy from that same shattering star explosion could have reached our planet and pummeled the atmosphere, touching off climate change and triggering mass extinctions of large ocean animals, including a shark species that was the size of a school bus.
“I’ve been doing research like this for about 15 years, and always in the past it’s been based on what we know generally about the universe — that these supernovae should have affected Earth at some time or another,” said lead author Adrian Melott, professor emeritus of physics & astronomy at the University of Kansas. “This time, it’s different. We have evidence of nearby events at a specific time. We know about how far away they were, so we can actually compute how that would have affected the Earth and compare it to what we know about what happened at that time — it’s much more specific.”
Muons showering Earth may have spelled curtains for Megalodon, a school-bus-sized shark, 2.6 million years ago.

“As far back as the mid-1990s, people said, ‘Hey, look for iron-60. It’s a telltale because there’s no other way for it to get to Earth but from a supernova.’ Because iron-60 is radioactive, if it was formed with the Earth it would be long gone by now. So, it had to have been rained down on us. There’s some debate about whether there was only one supernova really nearby or a whole chain of them. I kind of favor a combo of the two — a big chain with one that was unusually powerful and close. If you look at iron-60 residue, there’s a huge spike 2.6 million years ago, but there’s excess scattered clear back 10 million years.”
Melott’s co-authors were Franciole Marinho of Universidade Federal de São Carlos in Brazil and Laura Paulucci of Universidade Federal do ABC, also in Brazil.
According to the team, other evidence for a series of supernovae is found in the very architecture of the local universe.
“We have the Local Bubble in the interstellar medium,” Melott said. “We’re right on its edge. It’s a giant region about 300 light years long. It’s basically very hot, very low-density gas — nearly all the gas clouds have been swept out of it. The best way to manufacture a bubble like that is a whole bunch of supernovae blows it bigger and bigger, and that seems to fit well with idea of a chain. When we do calculations, they’re based on the idea that one supernova that goes off, and its energy sweeps by Earth, and it’s over. But with the Local Bubble, the cosmic rays kind of bounce off the sides, and the cosmic-ray bath would last 10,000 to 100,000 years. This way, you could imagine a whole series of these things feeding more and more cosmic rays into the Local Bubble and giving us cosmic rays for millions of years.”
Whether or not there was one supernova or a series of them, the supernova energy that spread layers of iron-60 all over the world also caused penetrating particles called muons to shower Earth, causing cancers and mutations — especially to larger animals.
“The best description of a muon would be a very heavy electron — but a muon is a couple hundred times more massive than an electron,” Melott said. “They’re very penetrating. Even normally, there are lots of them passing through us. Nearly all of them pass through harmlessly, yet about one-fifth of our radiation dose comes by muons. But when this wave of cosmic rays hits, multiply those muons by a few hundred. Only a small faction of them will interact in any way, but when the number is so large and their energy so high, you get increased mutations and cancer — these would be the main biological effects. We estimated the cancer rate would go up about 50 percent for something the size of a human — and the bigger you are, the worse it is. For an elephant or a whale, the radiation dose goes way up.”

A supernova 2.6 million years ago may be related to a marine megafaunal extinction at the Pliocene-Pleistocene boundary where 36 percent of the genera were estimated to become extinct. The extinction was concentrated in coastal waters, where larger organisms would catch a greater radiation dose from the muons.
According to the authors of the new paper, damage from muons would extend down hundreds of yards into ocean waters, becoming less severe at greater depths: “High energy muons can reach deeper in the oceans being the more relevant agent of biological damage as depth increases,” they write.
Indeed, a famously large and fierce marine animal inhabiting shallower waters may have been doomed by the supernova radiation.“One of the extinctions that happened 2.6 million years ago was Megalodon,” Melott said. “Imagine the Great White Shark in ‘Jaws,’ which was enormous — and that’s Megalodon, but it was about the size of a school bus. They just disappeared about that time. So, we can speculate it might have something to do with the muons. Basically, the bigger the creature is the bigger the increase in radiation would have been.”
The KU researcher said the evidence of a supernova, or series of them, is “another puzzle piece” to clarify the possible reasons for the Pliocene-Pleistocene boundary extinction.
“There really hasn’t been any good explanation for the marine megafaunal extinction,” Melott said. “This could be one. It’s this paradigm change — we know something happened and when it happened, so for the first time we can really dig in and look for things in a definite way. We now can get really definite about what the effects of radiation would be in a way that wasn’t possible before.”

RH Negative: Aliens Genetically Created Us: Overwhelming Evidence (Video)
RH Negative: Aliens Genetically Created Us: Overwhelming Evidence (Video)
If you want to rouse passionate opinions – just discuss the origin of the human race. Fervent believers argue the literal, biblical perspective… that we were created in an instant by a Creator … while scientists claim we are the result of pure evolution – and there are many theories inside that. As it turns out, more and more evidence is showing the likelihood that both theories actually hold some truth, …that the human race is, by all means, an evolving species, but also, that there are a multitude of reasons to believe that a more intelligent life form played a role in developing our DNA.
As we unravel more mysteries from our past, more and more physicists, historians, geneticists, and anthropologists are pushing the boundaries of accepted theories by mentioning the “A” word – yes – the dreaded “alien” – and the overwhelming evidence that something played a role in our evolution. So if you’re among those people still laughing off this possibility – because you’ve never seen one – we’d like to bring you up to speed with some of the remarkable discoveries being discussed in the scientific community, ones that prove our genetic makeup has to be more than just a random hand of cards.
In this video, I will show you how NASA is able to cover up life on Mars and make it all look like natural landscape, by adding the fake yellowish color tint and fake sand.
When they add this effect, it makes everything blend in as part of the environment, so that nothing out of the ordinary stands out.
To me it seems like there is a massive amount of live beings gathered around close to where the Rover is, looking at this image closely, what i’m seeing is beings of various sizes and maybe some kind of alien plant life?

Throughout 2017 and 2018 a series of mysterious animal attacks have left many rural Indian shepherds and farmers rattled. Whole flocks of sheep have been left eviscerated with onlytheir livers missingor their blood seeminglysucked right outof their woolly little bodies. Things then took a turn for the worse and the weird earlier this year when the culprit – whatever it is – was reported toattack a dozen villagersin eastern India in their sleep.
Some of the creature’s unfortunate victims.
The attacks continued late into 2018 with the vicious slaughterof over 40 ducks in late November. Despite the frequency of the attacks and the fact that over 150 animals were slaughtered, the identity of the creature behind the killings remained unknown. In response to these unexplained livestock mutilations, the State Government of Manipur launched an investigation earlier this year, calling in scientists from the Wildlife Institute of India were to install remote cameras and gather evidence in an attempt to identify whatever may be behind these recent attacks. According to local news reports, those scientists have finally identified what was behind the killings: dogs. Wait, dogs? Plain old dogs ate the livers of whole flocks of sheep and drained the blood from pigs?
“I need the iron for my anemia.”
Manipur Forest and Environment Minister Thounaojam Shyamkumar told reporters this week that the “Wildlife Institute of India (WII), who have been conducting the probe on the string of attacks on livestock have collected enough evidence to conclude that the attacks were carried out by stray dogs. We will take all possible measures to control this menace. These dogs prowling in the streets and villages could turn to man if they get infected with rabies.”
Scientists concluded that “poor and unhygienic husbandry practice and open garbage” contributed to the dogs’ attacks. While I don’t doubt that packs of feral dogs pose problems in rural places where livestock are commonplace, I’m dubious of any explanations presented without evidence. Where are the photographs of these dogs? Casts of their footprints? Not even a single liver-filled scat sample?
Dog works in mysterious ways.
While I’m sure this explanation is sure to calm the nerves of some of the shepherds affected by the string of attacks, it seems too tidy. Until I see a sad, mangy mutt caked in blood and sheep liver in a wire crate at a press conference, I’m still going with an Indian cousin of the chupacabra.
Black Triangle moving at low altitude in Cape May, New Jersey
Black Triangle moving at low altitude in Cape May, New Jersey
This sighting is from August 2016 but submitted to Mufon on December 5, 2018. The footage is interesting because it clearly shows a TR-3B moving at low altitude over Cape May, New Jersey.
The witness said: My adult daughter was jogging on the beach and noticed some weird things going on with regard to that storm, and phoned me. my wife and i stepped out on the balcony of our vacation rental unit and checked out the night sky and caught on my cell phone video camera something that appeared to be 3 lights in a triangular formation, with a single flying light not far behind it
I found some interesting structures in this Mars surface photo. Most of the big structures were deliberately blurred out, however there were still a few that were clearly visible. These structures are not new, but very old...ancient ruins. The photo is a planned route of the Mars Curiosity rover and the route takes it through two areas that are littered with structures. Its no wonder why NASA says the rover has not responded to NASA signals or has problems...its because the rover is on a black opps mission to explore some of these ancient ruins and get some photos of the tech and ruins...close ups that the public will never see, until today.
For the first time in history, scientists have detected the first interstellar object ever observed.
In October 2017, an elongated interstellar object named "Oumuamua" — the first to enter the solar system — was detected by a survey telescope in Hawaii.A new study published this week in the Astronomical Journal, coauthored by scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, uncovered new information that suggested there was a limit to how big Oumuamua actually is, and gave astronomers a better indication of its size.
Scientists have been looking for signs of extraterrestrial life for decades. So does the appearance of Oumuamua mean the elusive "E.T" has finally been detected? Perhaps: Experts say it is exceedingly unlikely, but the possibility can't be ruled out just yet.
"I personally think the odds are much better that is something natural, but I don't want to dismiss the possibility that it could be from an alien civilization. But we have to have an open mind," Michael Wall, a writer at Space.com and a biologist, told CNBC recently.
Scientists believe Oumuamua is shaped like a cigar, approximately 400 feet long and 40 feet wide. However, they are only able to guess based on its changing brightness as it spins.
But scientists' biggest unanswered question is the object's thickness. As far as the scientific community is aware, there is no naturally occurring object that is as big as Oumuamua that appears so thin at the same time, increasing the likelihood that it was created by another life form.
Given the speed the object is moving, experts believe that it may be a light sail — an object that is thin enough to be pushed by the sun or another star, almost like a plastic bag in the wind, according to Matija Cuk, a research scientist at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute.
Seth Shostak, a SETI research fellow, told CNBC that for that to be true, Oumuamua would have to be about a millimeter thick—about as thick as 5-10 sheets of paper stacked together.
According to Wall, scientists originally hypothesized that Oumuamua was a comet or an asteroid. However, both theories were ruled out: Unlike comets studied here on earth, this object does not have a tail, nor jets of gas that a comet would normally emit.
If Oumuamua is not a comet or an asteroid, chances of it being a light sail increase. According to SETI's Cuk, it is possible that outside our solar system, composition of space objects are different.
"Maybe in other solar systems comets could be made differently," Cuk said. That suggests the object could be naturally occurring, despite the fact that nothing like it has ever been seen anywhere near earth before.
Shostak said there are likely many objects similar to Oumuamua in the depths of space. This time, the object "hit the bullseye" by reaching the earth's solar system.
"This implies a number of these things are drifting through the cosmos, as ubiquitous as fire hydrants," Shostak said.
These objects have also likely reached our solar system in the past and gone unnoticed. Scientists are building another telescope similar to the one in Hawaii that detected Oumuamua. Once it is completed in Chile, it will be used to search for similar objects.
"Unless a miracle has occurred, these are entering our solar system all the time. This is just the first one we've found," Shostak said. He acknowledged the alien hypothesis was plausible, adding that Oumuamua acted more like a rock than a spaceship.
"If they really wanted to target our solar system, they'd hang around longer and probably come closer to the earth," he said.
Scientists also would have been able to detect any sort of signal the object had if it were as advanced as a cell phone, Shostak said. That does not prove anything, but decreases the likelihood that it was deliberately sent.
Oumuamua is now drifting further away from our solar system. The longer the distance, the harder it will be for earthlings to study it. Yet as technology increases, scientists may discover more objects similar to Oumuamua, perhaps in the next three to ten years.
"If we don't keep finding them, this will be increasingly peculiar," Shostak said.
Correction: Oumuamua was first discovered in October 2017.
It was just a few months after NASA's Opportunity rover touched down on Mars in 2004 that it spotted a geological curiosity: tiny, iron-rich spheres scattered across the rock surface near the robot's landing site. Snack-loving scientists working with the mission dubbed these objects "blueberries," but the features were easier to name than to understand. Their recipe remains something of a puzzle.
Trying to sort out the origins of these blueberries has always involved studying similar-looking spherical formations here on Earth. New research takes its inspiration from these terrestrial analogs to offer a new idea of the chemistry that may have gone into whipping up these Martian blueberries. In turn, this research helps reveal what ancient Mars may have looked like.
The blueberries are tantalizing for more than just their whimsical name; they also constituted some of the earliest evidence we had that Mars was once incredibly wet. "No matter what the exact chemistry of these spherules was to start, the fact that they're there tells us [that] a lot of liquid water moved through these rocks over time," Briony Horgan, a planetary scientist at Purdue University in Indiana, told Space.com. [10 Amazing Mars Discoveries by Rovers Spirit & Opportunity]
And if scientists can parse out precisely how the blueberries formed, that may help us understand what Mars was like back when the features formed — and what sort of life could have theoretically thrived in those circumstances, Horgan said.
So, the team behind the new research traveled to two different terrestrial destinations in search of rock formations that resemble Martian blueberries: Utah and Mongolia. These formations aren't identical to those on Mars, which are about a tenth the size of the Earthly equivalents. Our planet's formations are also less orderly than the Martian versions. "They're all blobbed together. They're different sizes," Horgan said of the terrestrial features.
But it's much easier to get to Utah and Mongolia than to Mars, so scientists use these features despite the imperfect comparison. The researchers found that the formations seemed to have been built around cores of a mineral called calcite, with iron-rich material in only the outer shell. "That moment [of discovery], it was very exciting," geochemist co-authors Hidekazu Yoshida of Nagoya University and Hitoshi Hasegawa of Kochi University in Japan, wrote in an email to Space.com.
Based on those observations in the field and chemical modeling, the scientists suggested that floods of iron-rich, gently acidic water washed over the original calcite structures. Unlike the terrestrial versions, Martian blueberries seem to be made of hematite all the way through, no longer sporting any calcite heart. But that could point to a long period of overwash that ate through all the calcite, the researchers said.
The nagging details of chemical reactions that may or may not have taken place on early Mars have larger implications. First, these details are relevant to scientists' natural interest in all that water that flowed through rocks to form the blueberries. "The chemistry of water tells us about the habitability of the environment," Horgan said.
The second potential implication would relate to another long-standing debate about Mars — what happened to its once-thick atmosphere. The authors in the new study argued that this atmosphere could have gone into the carbonate ions locked in calcite precursors to the blueberries.
But that wouldn't solve the atmospheric mystery, Steve Ruff, a planetary geologist at Arizona State University who works on the Opportunity mission, told Space.com. "My sense of what we know about the area of the hematite that we can map from orbit is it's not a huge area," covering less than 1 percent of Mars' surface, he said. There just aren't enough blueberries to pack away very much atmosphere. [Latest Mars Rover Photos from Opportunity & Spirit]
He said he also worries that Earth's formations aren't similar enough to those on Mars for scientists to learn about the blueberries. But Ruff didn't dismiss the new paper. "I'm intrigued by this idea," he said. "The formation of these little concretions on Earth and certainly on Mars has always been a bit of a mystery, and there's multiple ideas about how you form these things."
The Martian blueberries are small enough that in order to truly solve their mystery, scientists will need more-sophisticated tools than are currently on the Red Planet. NASA's next rover, the Mars 2020 rover, will carry instruments with high enough resolution that they could tackle these questions. But that rover is slated to visit a place called Jezero Crater, far away from the plain where Opportunity spotted the blueberries.
"Going back to places on Mars with NASA is not something people want to do. They want to go to new places," Ruff said. Nevertheless, he said he isn't giving up hope that the new rover could solve the blueberry mystery. "Maybe we'll get lucky and see something like this with the 2020 rover."
Whatever the nuances of blueberry chemistry turn out to be, the new paper is a reminder of the vast time scales — and the potential complexity such time scales entail — involved in Martian geology, Horgan said. "Time can play a really important role in the minerals that we see," Horgan said. "We should be careful. There could have been multiple things that happened to these rocks."
The research is described in a paper published today (Dec. 5) in the journal Science Advances.
Alien contacts: will it be an invasion or just a courtesy visit?
Alien contacts: will it be an invasion or just a courtesy visit?
Written by Gianni Rizzo
So far, science has ignored any hypothesis of contact with alien civilizations, but the number of those who claim to have seen a UFO or of being in direct contact with extraterrestrials shows no decline.
This despite being long past the clamor of the nineties when the world was in the grip of an “x-file mania” which may have induced suggestive phenomena capable of distorting statistics.
ALIEN CONTACTS, TWO OPPOSITE HYPOTHESES
That said, any large-scale contact with alien beings continues to be imagined as two diametrically opposite situations: a courtesy visit or a real invasion.
On the one hand it has been repeatedly noted that UFOs appear more often in some critical moments or natural disasters, such as volcanic eruptions or earthquakes. So some researchers believe that the aliens have helped us fight the whims of nature and overcome the most difficult moments throughout our history.
ALIENS WOULD TRY TO IMPROVE HUMANITY
Some historians, fascinated by the UFO theme, have suggested that the ultimate goal of aliens is to bring goodness, harmony and peace to planet Earth as human nature is imperfect. We lie to one another, we kill, we pollute the environment, we break down the forests, we run out of natural resources, while the aliens, as representatives of a much more developed race, would like to help us, as if we were their younger brothers. They would induce us, kindly, to improve, to love each other more.
A large-scale alien contact in such a scenario would not be an invasion, but simply a visit by friends we do not know, but who know us very well. The opinion is shared by those ufologists who believe that the aliens, no matter if Nordic aliens, Grey aliens or Reptilian aliens, have been visiting the planet Earth for some time having been observed by the ancient Maya as well as by ancient Egyptians.
NOT EVERYONE AGREES WITH A BENEVOLENT HYPOTHESIS
If they wanted to, it's logical deduction, the aliens could have conquered the Earth a long time ago. However, not all scientists share this rosy point of view and some like Stephen Hawking suggested to be cautious.
After all, every year thousands of people seem to disappear without leaving a trace all over the world and the few who return speak of barbarous experiments to which victims of alien abductions would have been subjected. Abductions whose numbers would be growing, exceeding those that have occurred in the last 20 years before or even before.
THE NUMBER OF ALIEN ABDUCTIONS IS GROWING
All this would happen secretly, so most of humanity knows nothing about such abductions or does not believe that they really happened. Meanwhile, the aliens, given their level of technology and the apparent ability to exercise mental control over people, could easily manage the whole thing openly, without paying attention to what's happening.
The spread of panic among the terrestrials would depend only on them, but in the end the aliens would rather act in secret, hiding among us. Why? Perhaps because in the universe there are forces, extraterrestrial civilizations, that oppose this way of proceeding and have not yet lost the hope of putting the terrestrials on the right path.
However, if it is true that the number of abductions is growing more and more, ours “supporters” would be getting tired, or maybe they would lose their confidence in our desire to improve. Also for this reason the last alien contacts would have had as their aim more and more unscrupulous experiments, perhaps even genetic ones.
THE ROBERT DEAN REVELATIONS
According to some stories of these years, human women would be fertilized on board UFO and then give birth to children who would soon be kidnapped by the aliens, Nordic, Gray or Reptilian who are. These children could play a special role during a possible future alien invasion.
They seem only speculations, yet according to the former US Army officer Robert Orel Dean (dead October 11, 2018), there would exist a top secret document to which Dean had access and with which almost all the leaders of the world powers are familiar, which would demonstrate the veracity of these “hypotheses”.
EARTH LEADERS HAVE KNOWN THE TRUTH SINCE THE 1960S
According to this document, planet Earth has long been the object of intense and massive observation by various alien civilizations, equipped with technologies more advanced than our thousands of years. The sequence of observations and the fact that they are conducted for many centuries would demonstrate the existence of a specific plan or program.
The military intelligence services would have signaled the absence of an immediate threat from alien civilizations. However, some facts indicate a potential for intervention in the affairs of the main world governments.
Copies of the document, Dean said, were sent to all the heads of NATO member states in the mid-1960s and since then the secret would be kept waiting to see if one day the aliens were to visit us in droves, amicably or not.
A well-known Russian expert, Ernst Rifgatovich Muldashev, ophthalmic surgeon by profession and researcher by passion, has long been looking for traces of ancient civilizations disappeared before the rise of mankind on Earth.
Muldshev, who in 2002 published three volumes of “In Search of Cities of the Gods”, followed by numerous other volumes (among which “Where do we come from” e “Between the arms of Dracula”), believes that the existence of more ancient civilizations of man is confirmed by archaeological finds, rock carvings, references to airplanes and Ufos in stories and legends. According to the expert, the civilizations that inhabited the planet would have been four.
1.ASURAS, THE NATIVES
The Asuras, or the natives, according to Muldashev were the first race appeared on Earth 10 million years ago. They were incredibly tall beings, up to 50 meters, they had an etheric body, they lived for up to ten thousand years and used telepathy to communicate with each other. In reality they were not natives of the Earth: they moved there after the death of the Phaethon planet.
2. ATLANTEANS, THOSE BORN AFTER
As the millennia passed, the Asuras changed, their bodies became denser. Thus a new race would develop, the Atlanteans, i.e. “those born after”. They were slightly smaller than the Asuras, they still did not have bones, but they had a third eye, located between the eyebrows.
3.LEMURIANS, THE BUILDERS OF THE SPHINX
After the Atlanteans, appeared on Earth the Lemurians. Much more similar to modern humans, they possessed a bone skeleton and were differentiated according to sex. The third eye was still present, but not as well developed as the Atlanteans.
Lemurians were about 7-8 meters tall and lived about a thousand years. According to Muldashev, they were the ones who built the Sphinx, Stonehenge and many other wonderful monuments of antiquity.
4. BOREI, THE MOST SIMILAR TO MAN
Lastly the Borei would have appeared: this race was formed long after the other, its members were much lower, did not exceed 3-4 meters in height, their third eye was more hidden while the other organs were very similar to those of man. What happened to all these beings?
According to Muldashev, about 25-30 thousand years ago on our planet occurred a nuclear catastrophe following a conflict between Lemurians and Borei. Some of the Lemurians took refuge in the caves, where they fell into a hibernating state, the other side flew away on space ships.
5. ARYANS, AFTER THE FALL OF ATLANTIS
After the Lemurians left the scene, the Boers and the Atlanteans reached unprecedented development peaks, but they could not avoid the disappearance of their civilizations that would have happened about 12 thousand years ago.
According to Muldashev a fifth race would have developed just before the disappearance of Atlantis, whose myth survived so far: the "aryan" race. The ancestors of modern man did not have a third eye and that's why our society would be developing more slowly.
Will it be true, or as official science says it's just about fantastic theories without any concrete proof? The experts have spoken, but this does not interest the readers of Muldashev.
The boulder-strewn asteroid Bennu, shown here in a mosaic of images taken by the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft on December 2, is full of water-rich minerals.
As the asteroid Bennucomes into sharper focus, planetary scientists are seeing signs of water locked up in the asteroid’s rocks, NASA team members announced December 10.
“It’s one of the things we were hoping to find,” team member Amy Simon of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., said in a news conference at the American Geophysical Union meeting in Washington, D.C. “This is evidence of liquid water in Bennu’s past. This is really big news.”
NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft just arrived at Bennu on December 3 (SN Online: 12/3/18). Over the next year, the team will search for the perfect spot on the asteroid to grab a handful of dust and return it to Earth. “Very early in the mission, we’ve found out Bennu is going to provide the type of material we want to return,” said principal investigator Dante Lauretta of the University of Arizona in Tucson. “It definitely looks like we’ve gone to the right place.”
OSIRIS-REx’s onboard spectrometers measure the chemical signatures of various minerals based on the wavelengths of light they emit and absorb. The instruments were able to see signs of hydrated mineralson Bennu’s surface about a month before the spacecraft arrived at the asteroid, and the signal has remained strong all over the asteroid’s surface as the spacecraft approached, Simon said. Those minerals can form only in the presence of liquid water, and suggest that Bennu had a hydrothermal system in its past.
Bennu’s surface is also covered in more boulders and craters than the team had expected based on observations of the asteroid taken from Earth. Remote observations led the team to expect a few large boulders, about 10 meters wide. Instead they see hundreds, some of them up to 50 meters wide.
“It’s a little more rugged of an environment,” Lauretta said. But that rough surface can reveal details of Bennu’s internal structure and history.
If Bennu were one solid mass, for instance, a major impact could crack or shatter its entire surface. The fact that it has large craters means it has survived impacts intact. It may be more of a rubble pile loosely held together by its own gravity.
Crater pockmarks on Bennu, like this 20-meter-wide depression photographed on December 2, may turn out to be the safest places for the spacecraft to pick up a sample of the asteroid. Craters also tell scientists that the asteroid is not one solid mass but instead different materials clumped together. If Bennu had been a solid rock, large impacts could crack or shatter its surface.

The asteroid’s density supports the rubble pile idea. OSIRIS-REx’s first estimate of Bennu’s density shows it is about 1,200 kilograms per cubic meter, Lauretta said. The average rock is about 3,000 kilograms per cubic meter. The hydrated minerals go some way towards lowering the asteroid’s density, since water is less dense than rock. But up to 40 percent of the asteroid may be full of caves and voids as well, Lauretta said.
Some of the rocks on the surface appear to be fractured in a spindly pattern. “If you drop a dinner plate on the ground, you get a spider web of fractures,” says team member Kevin Walsh of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colo. “We’re seeing this in some boulders.”
The boulders may have cracked in response to the drastic change in temperatures they experience as the asteroid spins. Studying those fracture patterns in more detail will reveal the properties of the rocks.
The OSIRIS-REx team also needs to know how many boulders of various sizes are strewn across the asteroid’s surface. Any rock larger than about 20 centimeters across would pose a hazard to the spacecraft’s sampling arm, says Keara Burke of the University of Arizona. Burke, an undergraduate engineering student, is heading up a boulder mapping project.
Some of the rocks strewn across Bennu, like this 35-meter-wide boulder photographed on December 2, are fractured in a spindly pattern. The fractures may be the result of sudden, drastic temperature change. Studying the fracture patterns could help scientists learn more about the properties of the rocks.

“My primary goal is safety,” she says. “If it looks like a boulder to me, within reasonable guidelines, then I mark it as a boulder. We can’t sample anything if we’re going to crash.”
The team also needs to know where the smallest grains of rock and dust are, as OSIRIS-REx’s sampling arm can pick up grains only about 2 centimeters across. One way to find the small rocks is to measure how well the asteroid’s surface retains heat. Bigger rocks are slower to heat up and slower to cool down, so they’ll radiate heat out into space even on the asteroid’s night side. Smaller grains of dust heat up and cool down much more quickly.
“It’s exactly like a beach,” Walsh says. “During the day it’s scalding hot, but then it’s instantly cold when the sun sets.”
Measurements of the asteroid’s heat storage so far suggest that there are regions with grains as small as 1 or 2 centimeters across, Lauretta said, though it is still too early to be certain.
“I am confident that we’ll find some fine-grained regions,” Lauretta said. Some may be located inside craters. The challenge will be finding an area wide enough that the spacecraft’s navigation system can steer to it accurately.
Editor's note: This story was updated December 11, 2018, to correct the description of Bennu's density. It's measured in cubic meters, not cubic centimeters.
This may be an anti climax to the title to some, but it’s ufo none the less. To save you time, it’s in the last 40 seconds of the video
for a moment I thought it may be a snow covered mountain top but the white is crossing the sea. So the object is floating or flying above the clouds doesnt look like a plane to me? So must be a alien space ship
Scientist Finds 'Evidence' of Another Universe Before This One
Scientist Finds 'Evidence' of Another Universe Before This One
in a study published back in august .......a team of theoretical physicists claimed to have discovered the remnants of previous universes hidden within the leftover radiation from the big bang.........
Before our universe, Another Universe existed, and another one will emerge after this universe ends
“The next universe will be just like ours — but only in overall appearance, not in detail, of course…” A researcher may just have discovered conclusive evidence that another universe existed before this one. Not only that, he claims that our universe is just the latest in an infinite series of universes. Professor Sir Roger Penrose argues that …
For the second time ever, a man-made object has reached interstellar space. The "Voyager 2" probe is now about 18 billion kilometers away from Earth.
In 1977 the probe "Voyager 2" left Earth and now - 41 years later - also the direct influence of our Sun. Nasa has just reported this. It was said to be the second man-made object that had ever ventured into this area.
The first was the Voyager 1 probe. It was the first man-made object to reach this region in 2012.
NASA is still able to communicate with the probe. However, it takes more than 16 hours at the speed of light for the messages to arrive on Earth. For comparison: The distance from the sun to the earth can be covered in about eight minutes at the speed of light.
Congratulations NASA. I hope countries spend less on military and more on space missions.
"Planet X": Astronomers are about to locate the mysterious celestial body
"Planet X": Astronomers are about to locate the mysterious celestial body
Planetologists have obtained detailed photos of the areas in space in which, from a hypothetical point of view, the mysterious ninth rogue planet of the solar system is located.
According to US astronomer Michael Brown, the photographs will help to discover the giant planet.
"We were able to spend seven full observation days. If there is 'planet X' out there, it will in the data collected. It covers 85 percent of the area in space where the planet is supposed to be," the researcher said.
At the beginning of January 2016, Michael Brown and his colleague Konstantin Batygin announced that they had calculated the state of a mysterious 'planet X' - the ninth planet of the solar system.
This planet is said to be 41 billion kilometers away from the Sun and has a mass about ten times greater than that of the Earth.
Scientists estimate that Planet X orbits the Sun within 15000 years
The exact location of the planet has not yet been determined, but it is known that the orbit of the celestial body is inclined by 30 degrees to the plane of rotation of the other planets.
Brown and Batygin have not yet achieved any significant success in their search for "Planet X" and have only been able to pinpoint the search area. As Brown claims, however, he is 80 percent sure that the planet can be found soon.
Fox News published astartling articleMonday (Dec. 3) with the headline "NASA scientist says Earth may have been visited by aliens." Unsurprisingly, that news rocketed around the web, with similar articles soon turning up in the New York Post, Russia Today and The Daily Wire. (Fox appears to have been the first major U.S. news source to run with the story.)
These articles are based on a document on NASA's website by Silvano Colombano, a researcher at NASA's Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. It really does argue that scientists should at least take seriously the notion that aliens may have visited planet Earth. But Colombano told Live Science that the coverage on Fox News and elsewhere misrepresented what he was trying to say when he wrote it.
"It is not accurately represented," he said. "My perspective was simply that reports of unidentified aerial phenomena should be the object of serious study, even if the chance of identification of some alien technology is very small." [13 Ways to Hunt Intelligent Aliens]
There's some nuance here. Colombano really does believe, as Fox News wrote, that aliens "may" have visited planet Earth. As in, it's theoretically possible that this has happened, not entirely impossible, and worth looking for evidence that it has. But that's not the same as expecting to actually find any such evidence, or believing that there's a good chance aliens are scuttling around under our noses — an impression you might get if you read Fox News's article.
Though Colombano's name and email address appear right on top of the document, he said Fox News did not contact him before publishing their story. (Live Science has reached out to Fox News to confirm this, but has not yet heard back.) Fox described the document as a "new research paper" — a term usually used to describe formal articles intended for publication in research journals and making conclusions based on evidence and the scientific method.
But that's not what this document is.
"The context was a presentation delivered last spring at a meeting of the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute," he said.
"The meeting was to get feedback from scientists as to future directions for the Institute's research program," Colombano said.
The document accompanied a talk he gave in which he suggested that perhaps the notion of aliens visiting Earth isn't quite as ridiculous as most scientists believe, and that SETI might devote some resources to systematically hunting through UFO reports and other data for evidence that this has happened — to hunt for a faint, unlikely signal in a lot of messy noise.
In other words, it was a speculative piece of writing intended to persuade other scientists to spend their resources on a long-shot project — not an argument about whether or not aliens have actually visited Earth. Colombano's position is that it's possible, but not necessarily likely.
The event brought together bioprinting experts to discuss the possibility of using 3D bioprinting and regenerative medicine for medical treatment of astronauts on extraterrestrial missions.
Tommaso Ghidini, ESA’s Head of the Structures, Mechanisms and Materials Division, said, “For the first time in Europe, all the relevant experts have come together to discuss applying 3D bioprinting and regenerative medicine for space.”
ESA’s latest project 3D Printing of Living Tissue for Space Exploration will be conducted under OHB System, a German space and industrial technology company, who has worked with ESA before. Dresden University of Technology will also collaborate on the project. The project will be funded under ESA basic activities, which includes technological research and studies on future projects.
HUMEX study focuses on the health-related issues including survivability and adaptation of astronauts undertaking long-duration mission beyond the Low Earth Orbit (LEO). The LEO is defined as an Earth-center orbit with altitudes between 160 to 2,000 km. Most of the man-made objects such as satellites are in the LEO.
The study reports the effects of cosmic radiation, reduced gravity on Mars and Moon, gravity changes during launch, and related psychological health issues. The findings of HUMEX are a guide for ESA researchers taking part in future projects related to interplanetary travel and habitat.
The latest ESA project intends to advance 3D bioprinting to the level where it becomes possible to 3D print skin, bones and organs.
However, the issues highlighted in HUMEX are complicated, and space beyond Earth is alien and hostile and presents different challenges. As Sandra Podhajsky, a researcher from OHB System’s Life Sciences explained, “Compared to today’s low-Earth-orbiting crews, long distance missions to far away destinations will face very different challenges.”
For example, some of the space mission scenarios sketched in the HUMEX study include, one hundred and eighty days stay on the Moon with a crew size of four. A thousand-day long mission to Mars, of which four hundred days will be spent on the red planet. And a five hundred day trip to Mars of which thirty days will be spent on the planet.
Tackling problems of beyond-Earth 3D bioprinting
In view of the scenarios mentioned in the HUMEX study, getting medical attention to the traveling crew is nearly impossible. As Podhajsky explained, “In the event of a medical emergency a rapid return home will not be feasible. Instead, patients will have to be treated on the spot. Thus we are evaluating the feasibility and added value of implementing different 3D printing technologies and bioprinted tissues into future exploration missions.”
Another problem is performing medical surgery, as access to equipment and personnel will not be handy in space. Telemedicine, i.e. communication of medical instructions via IT and telecommunications technology, will not be possible due to the communication delay on deep space mssions.
To overcome this difficulty, a possible solution which employs robotic surgeons equipped with Artificial Intelligence was discussed, at the two-day workshop.
Furthermore, beyond the scientific and technological aspect, legal and regulatory issues were also explored. Bioprinting products will need to be controlled by regulatory bodies, like the American FDA, as well as space regulation bodies.
Tommaso Ghidini explained, “We’re asking what astronauts would need in the short, medium and long term, and what steps are needed to mature 3D bioprinting to a level where it can be useful in space. We’re defining a development roadmap and timeline, with the aim that this group becomes a scientific working group in future, pushing progress on.”
