Nucleare? No, grazie! - Manga denuncia effetti di incidente nucleare a Fukushima

manga 

Un manga fa discutere, in Giappone. Si chiama Oishinbo e, questi disegni, popolarissimi, denunciano gli effetti dell’incidente nucleare che ha coinvolto, nel 2011, la regione giapponese di Fukushima.
La rivista Big Comic Spirits qualche giorno fa ha pubblicato l’ultimo episodio di questo manga che, per tre episodi, si svolge proprio a Fukushima, dove lo sceneggiatore, Tetsu Kariya, fa dire ai suoi personaggi delle cose che riaprono una polemica già scatenata dallo stesso disegno a fine aprile.
Il fumetto, infatti accusa “la ditta Tepco e il governo di trattare la situazione in modo irresponsabile” affermando che è necessario aiutare le persone a lasciare questa provincia diventata inabitabile inseguito all’incidente nucleare della centrale Fukushima Daiichi che si è svolto nel marzo del 2011.
Nei precedenti episodi uno dei personaggi disegnato da Akira Hanasaki spiega che molte persone di Fukushima perdono sangue dal naso in modo inspiegabile. Questa semplice frase ha creato delle reazioni a catena alle quali si è aggiunta anche quella del Primo ministro Shinzo Abe. “E’ importante che il paese contrasti in ogni modo queste affermazioni senza alcun fondamento. Non è stato confermato alcun caso di collegamento diretto tra la salute di chiunque e le sostanze radioattive”.
Immaginavo che evocando questi sanguinamenti dal naso avrei attivato delle proteste, ma non pesavo che avrebbe provocato una reazione simile” scrive sul suo blog Tetsu Kariya. “Non capisco perché quando si scrive la verità così com’è si viene criticati” afferma Kariya che sostiene che alla base delle sue parole ci sono due anni di studi.
Per cercare di placare le polemiche la casa editrice del fumetto Shogakukan nell’ultimo numero, ha concesso dieci pagine di risposta a medici e scienziati, alle autorità locali implicate (Kawauchi, Osaka, Futaba) e ai giornalisti.

NATO: LE BOMBE NUCLEARI DI WASHINGTON IN EUROPA


- di Gianni Lannes -

Solo i piccoli segreti vanno protetti: per quelli grandi sarà sempre sufficiente l’incredulità della gente.

 
La rivelazione di segreti bellici del patto atlantico nel 1978 è costata la condanna a morte di Aldo Moro, stabilita a Washington. Oggi nonostante la guerra fredda sia ufficialmente terminata nel 1989 con la caduta del muro di Berlino, l’alleanza atlantica di criminali in divisa e doppiopetto ha allargato le sue mire terroristiche, avvalendosi anche di scientisti italidioti, assoldati nei retrobottega dell’impero a stelle e strisce.
Così mentre mandano in onda la farsa elettorale dell’Europa, con un parlamento di facciata, ossia privo di qualsiasi potere decisionale e non rappresentativo dei popoli, Obama si appresta a scatenare una guerra nucleare, usando il vecchio continente, dove hanno nascosto un arsenale proibito dal Trattato di non proliferazione nucleare, firmato anche dall’Italia nel 1968 e ratificato dal parlamento tricolore nel 1975.
I governi italiani dal 1956 a tutt’oggi, hanno sempre negato al presenza sul suolo nazionale di armamenti atomici, eppure una miriade di documenti ufficiali USA, nonché la constatazione diretta in alcune basi statunitensi del belpaese, dimostrano il pericolo e l’illegalità sancita dai vertici del nostro Stato, privo di sovranità. Usano da sempre la nostra terra per fare la guerra.
 
 
E pochi sanno che quando sarà scatenato il conflitto nucleare, proprio l’Italia è il primo obiettivo di distruzione, a parte gli incidenti già verificatisi e gli inquinamenti correnti. E’ ora di chiedere il conto e di cacciarli tutti via, a partire dai servi nostrani che banchettano nei palazzi statali.
A un giornalista si chiede di raccontare i fatti, di spiegarli con riscontri documentati, soprattutto di controllare il potere, ogni potere. Occorre cercare la verità, quella scomoda, quella che urtica, quella che obbliga al realismo, non all’intrattenimento.
 
Un’inchiesta giornalistica è la paziente fatica di portare alla luce i fatti, di mostrarli nello loro forza e nello durezza. Il buon giornalismo sa che i fatti non sono mai al sicuro nelle mani del potere e se ne fa custode nell’interesse dell’opinione pubblica.
Possiamo fare qualcosa? Ho il dovere di sperarlo e di essere contagioso. Anche a questo serve la cultura: a rinvigorire l’umanità nei momenti critici, perché la conoscenza ci rende esseri liberi.

NASA: veicoli spaziali commerciali made-in-America


La NASA sta progettando di costruire una serie di veicoli spaziali commerciali, diretti verso la Stazione Spaziale Internazionale (ISS) nel 2017. Saranno prodotti da aziende private

di Francesco Ballerin





La NASA sta progettando di costruire una serie di veicoli spaziali commerciali diretti verso la Stazione Spaziale Internazionale (ISS) per il prossimo futuro, nel 2017. Attualmente sono in atto le certificazioni che consentirebbero all’ente di produrre e posizionare sulla pedana di lancio dei mezzi di trasporto sicuri, affidabili e convenienti. Se, come previsto, il progetto riscuoterà successo, potrebbe diventare una delle missioni spaziali principali della NASA che, dopo la fine del progetto sugli Space Shuttle, è adesso costretta ad affidarsi ai moduli Sojuz del programma spaziale dell’unione sovietica.

Phil McAlister, direttore della sezione commerciale della NASA, dice “Stiamo facendo grandi passi verso il ritorno della capacità da parte degli Stati Uniti di avviare missioni spaziali” e conclude anche “Questa certificazione è importante per garantire che i nostri membri dell’equipaggio vengano trasportati in modo affidabile verso la stazione spaziale, dove stanno conducendo diverse operazioni di ricerca essenziali per far progredire l’esplorazione umana oltre il sistema solare”.

La NASA fino ad ora ha speso un totale di 30 milioni di dollari in contratti, allo scopo di garantire il successo dell’operazione. Tra i candidati troviamo aziende come la Boeing, con il suo CST-100, la Sierra Nevada Corporation, con il veicolo Dream Chaser e la SpaceX, con il modulo Dragon rinominato il “taxi spaziale”. Il candidato che per il momento ha riscosso il maggior numero di consensi è stato proprio il modulo Dragon, per via delle caratteristiche strutturali tra cui la possibilità di atterrare in modo particolarmente morbido praticamente ovunque sulla terra, senza la necessità delle cadute in mare e con la conseguenza di un recupero molto costoso.


Nei prossimi anni, l’importanza di un progetto spaziale americano, autonomo sotto diversi punti di vista, potrebbe diventare strategica per l’accesso allo spazio da parte degli Stati Uniti. Inizialmente il progetto era previsto per il vicino 2015, ma la continua riduzione di budget ha portato inevitabilmente ad uno slittamento generale sulla tabella di marcia.

La notizia non è per gli appassionati del settore una sorpresa inaspettata, dato che l’ultimo viaggio organizzato quest’ultima settimana è costato, in termine di cifre, circa 70 milioni di dollari. La produzione di un sistema più economico per il trasporto spaziale potrebbe avviare negli anni futuri un business turistico basato sullo spazio, in cui i partecipanti non saranno più astronauti addestrati per anni allo scopo di compiere ricerche a gravità zero, ma multimilionari, con il desiderio di spendere qualche soldo in più per farsi un “vacanza particolare”.

Usa. Scoperta su Marte più recente oasi di vita risalente a 200 mln di anni fa


http://virtualblognews.altervista.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Il-fiore-su-Marte.jpg

USA, PROVIDENCE -Le pendici di un gigantesco vulcano alto il doppio dell’Everest potrebbero essere state, circa 200 milioni di anni fa, una delle più recenti ‘oasi’ della vita su Marte. Si trattava di grandi laghi creati dallo scontro tra la lava eruttata dal monte Arsia e il grande ghiacciaio che lo ricopriva. A scoprirlo è stato un gruppo di ricerca dell’università americana Brown a Providence, Rhode Island, grazie ai dati attenuti dal satellite della Nasa Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, il cui lavoro è stato pubblicato sulla rivista Icarus.
Alto circa 16 mila metri, il Monte Arsia è il terzo vulcano più alto del pianeta rosso e, secondo le nuove osservazioni, la sua attività eruttiva potrebbe aver creato le condizioni adatte alla vita 210 milioni di anni fa. All’epoca, infatti, la regione era coperta da ghiacciai e lo ‘scontro’ tra lava e ghiaccio potrebbe aver portato alla creazione di almeno due grandi laghi di acqua liquida, grandi quanto come il lago di Garda. E’ la più recente regione abitabile scoperta su Marte, il sito dove è stato inviato il rover Curiosity, che avrebbe avuto condizioni favorevoli alla vita 2,5 miliardi di anni fa. Le pendici del Monte Arsia, se realmente avessero mai ospitato forme di vita, conserverebbero testimonianze fossili molto più recenti e più facili da identificare.
Facendo un parallelo con quanto avvenuto sul nostro pianeta, mentre 2,5 miliardi di anni fa erano presenti solo semplicissime forme di vita unicellulari, all’epoca del monte Arsia il nostro pianeta era popolato da praticamente tutti i tipi di organismi che esistono ancora oggi, dalle piante fino ai primi mammiferi. Le condizioni di Marte all’epoca erano però molto diverse da quelle della Terra e secondo i ricercatori l’acqua dei due laghi sarebbe scomparsa nel giro di qualche centinaio di anni.

Per la Nestlè gli esseri umani non hanno diritto all'acqua



In un'intervista del 2005 apparsa sul documentario " We Feed the World ", affermò praticamente che quello all'acqua non si poteva considerare un diritto per gli esseri umani, dichiarando che l'acqua non è altro che un prodotto commerciale, e per questo è lecito che venga privatizzata e quindi detenuta in poche mani .

Le sue testuali parole sono : 

" La questione su cui riflettere è bisogna o no privatizzare l'acqua ? Si scontrano due punti di vista, su ciò, il primo che definirei estremo è rappresentato dalle ONG per le quali l'accesso all'acqua dovrebbe essere nazionalizzato, in altre parole tutti gli esseri umani devono avere accesso all'acqua.
Questa è una soluzione estrema, e l'altro che dice che l'acqua è un prodotto alimentare e come tutti i prodotti alimentari ha un valore di mercato " .


Continua Letmathe : " è preferibile, secondo me dare sempre un valore a un prodotto cosicchè tutti noi siamo coscienti che tale prodotto ha un valore e che si possano attuare delle misure adeguate " .

We Feed the World Cover.jpg

Come riporta la sua pagina di Wikipedia, Letmathe è anche membro del consiglio di amministrazione della compagnia petrolifera ExxonMobil, di proprietà dei Rockefeller,  una delle più potenti famiglie di banchieri e industriali internazionali .
Interessante è sentire il famoso discorso all'ONU di David Rockefeller, in cui il famigerato banchiere e petroliere afferma che essendoci sempre meno risorse da sfruttare, praticamente bisogna dimezzare la popolazione .
Letmathe è anche membro del consiglio di amministrazione di Credit Suisse e dell' Oreal, una delle più grandi multinazionali specializzate in cosmetici e altri prodotti di bellezza .
L'industriale è anche membro del consiglio di fondazione del " World Economic Forum " e membro della European Round Table of Industrialists, una lobby fondata nel 1983 che riunisce i più grandi manager delle multinazionali con sede in Europa e che ha una forte influenza sulle decisioni economiche prese dall'UE .
Ha anche partecipato alle riunioni del Bilderberg, il meeting che riunisce le più potenti personalità dell'alta finanza,della grande industria e della politica, e il cui obiettivo è la costruzione di un'unico governo mondiale guidato dai potentati finanziari e industriali .
Inoltre,come rivelato dall'agenzia di news " Bloomberg ", ultimamente la Nestlè ha anche lavorato con i Rothschild per studiare la vendita di asset in Sud America .



Letmathe ha fatto capire a che cosa sta lavorando l'elitè mondiale : un mondo basato sulla mercificazione totale dell'essere umano e di ciò che lo circonda, schiavo della dittatura del denaro e del potere di pochi oligarchi che per mezzo di esso esercitano il loro immenso potere sul resto dell'umanità .

Tassili n’Ajjer: 15 mila opere d’arte rupestre raccontano di un paleocontatto nel passato remoto del Sahara?

Tassili n'Ajjer

Tassili n’Ajjer è un vasto altopiano situato nel deserto del Sahara, a sudest dell’Algeria, che copre una superficie di 72 mila km².
Situato in uno strano paesaggio lunare di grande interesse geologico, questo sito contiene la più grande e importante collezione di arte rupestre preistorica del mondo.
Fino ad oggi, sono state identifica 15 mila incisioni e disegni, nei quali sono registrati cambiamenti climatici, migrazioni animali e l’evoluzione della vita umana in un arco di tempo compreso tra i 12 mila e i 6 mila anni fa.
La densità eccezionale di dipinti e incisioni, e la presenza di numerose vestigia preistoriche, hanno guadagnato al sito di Tassili n’Ajjer la fama di “miglior museo a cielo aperto della preistoria del mondo”, tanto da essere stato inserito nell’elenco dei Patrimoni dell’umanità dell’UNESCO.
Scoperta nel 1933, la collezione artistica riguarda una serie di opere rupestre realizzate su pareti rocciose a vista e comprende immagini di animali selvaggi e domestici, esseri umani e disegni geometrici.
A fare scalpore è stata anche l’individuazione di misteriosi esseri mitici, come uomini con teste di animali, divinità o esseri spirituali. All’occhio dei visitatori moderni, molte figure sembrano avere una verta somiglianza con dispositivi quali caschi, antenne o armi tecnologiche, tanto che i sostenitori della Teoria degli Antichi Astronauti ritiene quello di Tassili n’Ajjer uno dei siti più importanti dove trovare tracce sicure del paleocontatto extraterrestre.
Chiaramente, ogni teoria in proposito entra nell’alveo delle speculazioni, dato che non esistono documenti scritti che possano chiarire la natura, l’identità e il significato degli esseri raffigurati nella roccia. Si tratta di informazioni perdute per sempre.
Quello che è certo è che l’arte di Tassili n’Ajjer copre cinque periodi distinti, ciascuno dei quali corrisponde ad una particolare fauna e può essere individuato grazie alle differenze stilistiche. Tuttavia, anche la precisa datazione sui vari periodi è argomento di dibattito tra gli studiosi, dato che a volte gli stili sembrano sovrapporsi. La cronologia proposta da Ancient Origins, come ammesso dai curatori del sito, non è detto che possa cambiare negli anni a venire.
Primo periodo: l’arte più antica appartiene a quello che è stato definito “periodo naturalista”, e si stima sia stata realizzata tra il 12000 e il 6000 a.C. Si caratterizza per la raffigurazione della fauna della savana, caratterizzata da una condizione ambientale più umida rispetto ad oggi. Si riconoscono elefanti, giraffe, ippopotami, rinoceronti e altri animali.
Secondo periodo: detto della “testa tonda” o “periodo arcaico”, compreso tra il 9500 e il 6000 a.C. Tale periodo è associato alla raffigurazione di enigmatiche figure, i Testa Tonda, che evocano probabili pratiche magico-religiose. In generale, i Testa Tonda sono raffigurati di profili e apparentemente fluttuanti nell’aria.
In una scena, le donne sono raffigurate con le mani alzate, come se cercassero la benedizione da una struttura enorme che torreggia sopra di loro. Fabrizio Mori, paleontolgo italiano, descriveva così la scena: “Si avverte in essi un senso di affettuosa sudditanza, senza paura del divino, di pura adorazione”. A questo periodo, i teorici degli Antichi Astronauti fanno coincidere l’ipotesi del paleocontatto.

Terzo periodo: classificato come “periodo pastorale” o “Bovidiano”, compreso tra il 7200 e il 3000 a.C. Si tratta del periodo più prolifico in termini di numero di dipinti, nei quali sono raffigurate scene di allevamenti bovini e di vita quotidiana. Il realismo estetico ne fanno tra gli esempi più noti di arte preistorica.
Quarto periodo: detto “del cavallo”; si fa risalire ad un’epoca compresa tra il 3200 e il 1000 a.C., comprendo la fine del Neolitico e corrispondente alla scomparsa di numerose specie animali, a seguito del progressivo inaridimento del clima al mutamento del cavallo.
In alcune scene sono rappresentanti cavalli che traiano carri guidati da aurighi disarmati, il che suggerisce che i carri non venissero utilizzati per combattere, ma forse per la caccia. Tuttavia, carri con ruote di legno non avrebbero potuto essere condotti agevolmente attraverso il territorio roccioso del Sahara. Anche in questo caso, ci troviamo davanti ad un enigma.
Quinto periodo: l’ultima parte dei dipinti corrisponde al “Periodo del Cammello”, collocato tra il 2000 e il 1000 a.C. Questo periodo coincide con la comparsa del deserto iper-arido e con la comparsa del dromedario.
Nonostante il grande numero di opere trovate dai ricercatori, sebbene rappresentino uno squarcio sulla vita degli antichi popoli del Sahara, molte domande rimangono ancora aperte su chi abbia realizzato le incisioni e i dipinti di Tassili n’Ajjer e cosa rappresentino.

Language barrier? Free NASA guide delves into talk with aliens

Astronomers have long searched for life on other planets. But what happens when we find it? This e-book lays the groundwork

 
Though E.T. spoke in kind of a toddler-meets-Tarzan language, chances are good that when we make contact with alien life -- and you know that we will -- communications are going to be a little more complex.
Fortunately, a new free e-book released by NASA examines "some of the enormous challenges that will face humanity if an information-rich signal emanating from another world is detected," according to the project's website.
We tend to think of encountering alien life as the stuff of sci-fi and therefore the stuff of myth, legend, and big box office takes, but this book takes a serious look at the complexities involved when two different cultures -- let alone species -- try to communicate with one another.
The truly comprehensive guide, titled "Archaeology, Anthropology and Interstellar Communication," features chapters written by a wide range of authors including experts in linguistics, history, anthropology, psychology, literature, religion, and life sciences. It's not a quick read, but being that scientists from the Search for Extraterrestrial Life Institute (SETI) recently testified before Congress that they think extraterrestrial life could be found in about 20 years, you still have a little time to get through all 300-plus pages.

NASA
The book begins with a look at the SETI program, then moves into a section called "Archaeological Analogues," in which information we've derived from studying cultures like the ancient Greeks and Mayans can be applied to those we may encounter in the future.
The next section continues in a similar context-creating vein and is entitled "Anthropology, Culture and Communication." Then we get to the fun stuff -- a section called "The Evolution and Embodiment of Extraterrestrials."
Here we get chapters like "The Evolution of Extraterrestrials," which looks at how our ideas about alien life have changed throughout time; "Biocultural Prerequisites for the Development of Interstellar Communication," which examines the Drake Equation for determining the number of extraterrestrial civilizations in our galaxy; and "Ethology, Ethnology and Communication with Extraterrestrial Intelligence," about, well, that name kind of says it all.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson 053014 [MSNBC]

Astrophysicist and Cosmos host Neil DeGrasse Tyson told MSNBC host Chris Hayes that while it’s audacious enough for human beings to say they’re capable of defining intelligence, he would still like to know if there’s other intelligent beings in the universe

“My great fear is that we’ve in fact been visited by intelligent aliens,” DeGrasse Tyson said to Hayes. “But they chose not to make contact, on the conclusion that there’s no sign of intelligent life on Earth. How’s that for measures of intelligence?”
One reason it’s presumptuous for humans to act like they’re the arbiters of intelligence, DeGrasse Tyson said, is the possibility that planets much older than ours are already sending us messages in a format that, while basic to them, is incomprehensible by our current standards.
For example, he explained, while radio waves are seen as commonplace in present-day Earth, no one could have understood them 200 years ago.
“We were sending signals out before we were doing it on purpose,” DeGrasse Tyson said. “Our early TV shows, like I Love Lucy and The Honeymooners and that sort of thing, Howdy-Doody. These are our cultural emissaries.”
As Hayes busted up laughing, DeGrasse Tyson continued.
“These are the things aliens will decode about our civilization, because in the radio bubble that is the volume around our solar system that contains our radio chatter — be it accidental or on purpose –”
“That’s the first stuff we emitted,” Hayes said, completing the thought.
“They will learn how men and women treat each other by watching The Honeymooners,” DeGrasse Tyson said. “‘To the moon, Alice!’ And people used to laugh at that.”

A New Hampshire witness at Pittsfield reported watching an eastbound, sphere-shaped UFO move inside a hovering UFO about 9:15 p.m. on May 29, 2014, according to testimony in Case 56703 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was outside on a clear night when she first observed the hovering object and attempted to take a video when the second object was seen.
“I noticed another UFO flying from the west to east towards the hovering UFO,” the witness stated. “I continued to watch and try to video.”
The witness then saw the hovering object turning on as the second object approached.
“The hovering UFO opened like these three beams of light. Two of the beams faced up – one to the northeast and the other to the northwest. The third beam was shinning down below the UFO.”
The witness said the moving object then seemed to “go inside” the hovering object.
“As soon as the UFO that was flying eastward went inside the hovering UFO, the lights seemed to fold up like petals on a flower.”

The witness went inside while the object was still hovering and did not see it move away. (Credit: Wikimedia Commons)

Football field sized UFO stops Alabama I-20 traffic

An Alabama witness eastbound along I-20 nearing the 205 exit reported stopping her vehicle to watch a silent, triangle-shaped UFO “as large as a football field” moving slowly at the tree top level that terrified her and appeared to cause missing time, according to May 29, 2014, testimony in Case 56669 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database

The incident began sometime between 2 and 3 a.m. on January 20, 2014, as the witness was on I-20 heading toward Georgia with an 18-wheeler about a mile or two behind her.

“About a mile to a mile and-a-half before I reached the 205 exit between Heflin and Ranburne, Alabama, I topped the hill and far in the distance on my right side I saw the most extreme, bright, white lights lighting up the entire side of the road and pasture,” the witness stated. “I was very confused as to what I was looking at.”
The witness first thought she was looking at a police search team possibly responding to a traffic accident.
“But then I realized that I didn’t see any emergency police or fire department colored lights and it was extremely quiet. I began to slow my speed as I approached closer and then I noticed the lights that were shinning straight through the tree line onto the interstate had not only risen to above the tree line, but had also turned from pointing toward the road to pointing toward the ground.”
The witness then completely stopped her vehicle along the interstate, but checked out the roadway for her safety.
“I looked in the rear-view mirror to see where the 18-wheeler truck was in relationship to my car because I wanted to make sure that I was wasn’t going to get hit and also I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t the only person who was seeing this. The 18-wheeler had also come to a stop about one mile behind me and had his cab door open and he also had not pulled off the interstate.”
The witness then turned her attention back to the lights and noticed that they were at the tree top level and the lights were pointing toward the ground.
“The next thing I knew it was completely dark. I then was very confused and began looking about the sky for anything that could have done this.”
The witness then realized that the lights were attached to a very large, triangle-shaped object.
“Still very confused and extremely scarred, I noticed a huge, huge, triangular-shaped object that had rounded edges where the point of a triangle would be. There was no sound at all and no lights on this object were seen now. This object remained about tree top tall as it passed over my car heading northwest.”
The silent object was very large.
“This object was as large as a football field if not larger. And was about 50 to 60 feet thick. I could clearly see the pattern on the bottom and the sides of this object.”

The witness was near this location traveling eastbound along Alabama’s I-20 nearing the 205 exit when she first saw the triangle-shaped object hovering at the tree top level on January 20, 2014. (Credit: Google Maps)

The witness became terrified of her position at this point and looked again for the 18-wheeler.
“I sat at a full stop in the middle of the interstate feeling completely terrified and violated and again looked behind me to check and see if there was any other traffic that the was going to hit me. The truck was nowhere to be seen and he was only about one mile behind me and was stopped with his door open only moments before. He couldn’t have made an exit off the interstate because the 205 exit in front of me was the only exit off the interstate for a few miles. This left me dazed and confused.”
The witness then realized she had experienced missing time.
“I realized that I had time missing from when I saw the object in the field about tree top tall with its lights on and when it was coming over my car without any lights on. When I finally pulled myself back together and began to drive slowly home I realized that the time was now 4:12 a.m.”
The witness described herself as a professional with no problems that would account for the incident.
“I am 47 years old and I am an RN with almost 30 years experience working as a nurse in the ER, ICU, and Dialysis.”
Alabama MUFON is investigating. Alabama has a current UFO Alert Rating of 5 with a low number of recent reports nationally. Alabama had 10 UFO reports in April 2014 – the 20th highest reporting state – while California had 80 reports – the highest reporting state in the nation. The above quotes were edited for clarity.

NASA Reports on Credible UFO Sightings in Ancient Times

Ancient Aliens

The universe is full of mysteries that challenge our current knowledge. In "Beyond Science" Epoch Times collects stories about these strange phenomena to stimulate the imagination and open up previously undreamed of possibilities. Are they true? You decide.

The description of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) has remained fairly consistent throughout history, stretching back into antiquity. While many could be attributed to natural phenomena, an in-depth study by NASA’s Richard Stothers found “There nonetheless remains a small residue of puzzling accounts, and regardless of what interpretation one places on them, these constitute a phenomenon that spans centuries of time and widely different cultures.”
Stothers (1939–2009) received a degree in mathematics at Princeton University, earned his Ph.D. at Harvard, and was a permanent member of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
Here’s a look at 5 UFO sightings Stothers deemed puzzling in a 2007 report.

1. Chariots in the Sky Witnessed by Many

Historian Josephus wrote around 65 A.D. about a fantastical sighting over Judea: “On the 21st of the month Artemisium, there appeared a miraculous phenomenon, passing belief. Indeed, what I am about to relate would, I imagine, have been deemed a fable, were it not for the narratives of eyewitnesses and the subsequent calamities which deserved to be so signalized. For, before sunset throughout all parts of the country, chariots were seen in the air and armed battalions hurtling through the clouds and encompassing the cities.”
Josephus likely witnessed this event himself, said Stothers, though he bolstered his credibility by appealing to eyewitness accounts. The description does not seem to correspond to any natural phenomena, Strothers wrote.

2. Thousands of Roman Soldiers Witness UFO?

Plutarch wrote of a sighting witnessed by thousands. In 74 B.C., the Roman army was moving to engage the forces of King Mithridates VI in the area of modern-day Turkey.
“With no apparent change of weather, but all on a sudden, the sky burst asunder, and a huge, flame-like body was seen to fall between the two armies,” he wrote. “In shape, it was most like a wine-jar (pithoi), and in color, like molten silver. Both sides were astonished at the sight, and separated. This marvel, as they say, occurred in Phrygia, at a place called Otryae.”
Stothers pointed out that freshly fallen meteorites are black, not “molten silver” color, which suggests it was not a meteorite. Plutarch also made no mention of the impact.
Stothers wrote: “The object must have measured much more than a meter across, since it was easily resolved at a distance greater than half the range of a bowshot. If it had remained on the ground, a meteorite of such size would doubtless have become a cult object in Phrygia, with its long tradition of meteorite worship, yet later historical records referring to Phrygian meteorites are silent about it.”
Nonetheless, there is a chance the UFO was a bolide, a bright meteor that often explodes.

3. Sightings During the Second Punic War in Rome

Many sightings were recorded during and following the Second Punic War (218–201 B.C.) in Livy’s prodigy lists. The lists were derived from the Annales Maximi, published by the Pontifex Maximus of Rome. This source is considered trustworthy and accurate, explained Stothers, because of the time-consuming and thorough procedure required by Roman authorities to investigate claims before they would be recorded.
In Rome, in the winter of 218 B.C., “A spectacle of ships (navium) gleamed in the sky.”
In 217 B.C., “at Arpi, round shields (parmas) were seen in the sky.”

In 173 B.C., “at Lanuvium a spectacle of a great fleet was said to have been seen in the sky.”
It is not likely that suggestive cloud formations would have been mistaken for UFOs, Strother said, since these formations had long been understood and were familiar features. These sightings are also not likely a mock sun, because mock suns are routinely described as “double suns” or “triple suns.”

4. ‘Angel Hair’ Glassy Fibers

In modern UFO reports, it is common to hear about either glassy fibers or a chalky substance left behind by the UFO, known as angel hair. Ancient reports also include angel hair.
In 196 A.D., the historian Cassius Dio wrote: “A fine rain resembling silver descended froma clear sky upon the Forum of Augustus. I did not, it is true, see it as it was falling, but noticed it after it had fallen, and by means of it I plated some bronze coins with silver; they retained the same appearance for three days, but by the fourth day all the substance rubbed on them had disappeared.”
Two other “rains of chalk” were reported in Cales 214 B.C. and in Rome 98 B.C.

5. UFO Inhabited

Pope Pius I’s brother was probably the only witness of this UFO sighting near Via Campana, Italy, around 150 A.D.: “On a sunny day, a ‘beast’ like a piece of pottery (ceramos) about 100 feet in size, multicolored on top and shooting out fiery rays, landed in a dust cloud accompanied by a ‘maiden’ clad in white.”
Stothers concluded “This collection of what might be termed ancient UFO reports has been culled from a much larger number of reports of aerial objects, most of whose identifications with known phenomena are either certain or at least probable. Embedded in the mass of relatively explicable ancient reports, however, is a small set of unexplained (or at least not wholly explained) reports from presumably credible witnesses.”
“Any viable theory must reckon with the extraordinary persistence and consistency of the phenomena discussed here over many centuries.”

UFO sighting as red light is spotted pulsating in sky

"I watched the object moving very slowly through the sky for about five minutes until it finally disappeared behind St Mary’s Church."




A UFO has been spotted flying around the Hinckley area

The incident was reported to the Leicestershire UFO Investigation Network who said on their Facebook page that a male witness spotted a “large pulsating bright red light in the sky” about the Jelson Estate on May 1.
The male reported seeing the possible alien spacecraft around the Hollycroft area at 9.55pm.
The witness stated: “I was just drawing my bedroom curtains when my eyes were drawn to an extremely vivid red light that was flying towards the east, very low in the sky - just above the rooftops. I opened the window to listen for sound, but there was nothing - just silence.
“I watched the object moving very slowly through the sky for about five minutes until it finally disappeared behind St Mary’s Church.
“I used my binoculars at one point, but the strange thing was that I couldn’t get them to focus on the object - even though I keep them ready for normal use and never have any trouble.”
Graham Hall, volunteer at LUFOIN, said: “The witness is a regular astronomer who is aware of what is in the sky so we are taking notice of what he is saying.
“One thing that is unusual is that he couldn’t get his binoculars to focus but of course he could have just knocked them in the excitement.
“It could have been an aircraft but it is unusual not to hear any sound. Red lights are often reported and they are common in the sky because they are on planes but it’s strange for it to be all red - usually there’s a green or white light on aircrafts too.
“We have investigated and we think it was about 500ft in the air - just above the rooftops.
“We want people to come forward if they have seen this aircraft or anything else unusual so we can investigate further.
“This way we can gather evidence and do some triangulation.”

UFO Book Review: Extraterrestrials and the American Zeitgeist

ET-Zeitgeist-cover

As author Ken Hollings has recently shown in his book Welcome to Mars (2014), the US in the 1950s, as opposed to our present day view of a decade defined by Eisenhower, the Cold War and Leave It to Beaver, was one of rampant experimentation: politically (the broadening of the Truman Doctrine and the nuclear arms race), sociologically (the development of the suburbs, automobile culture, and rampant consumerism) and culturally (Lenny Bruce, the Beats, free jazz, existential philosophy, the folk revival and French New Wave film, among others). These seeds would later ferment into the Cultural Revolution and Civil Rights eras of the 1960s.
By far one of the most fascinating and – according to author Aaron John Gulyas, a history professor at Flint, Michigan – subversive critiques of the schizoid nature of postwar America – one where technology alternately promises a utopian future or destroys everything – was that of the alien contactee movement, which aside from a few odd cases of physical, psychic or telepathic encounters (helpfully recounted here), began in 1952 with George Adamski’s first contact with Orthon, a benevolent “space brother” from the planet Venus.
Though Gulyas remains undecided concerning the authenticity of Adamski’s claims, it seems fairly obvious, at least since Jim Moseley’s debunking efforts of nearly 50 years ago, that Adamski, with his science fiction (his novel Pioneers of Space,from which much of his later contactee claims were derived, was published in 1949) and Theosophically-influenced occult roots (he started a movement in the 1930s named “The Royal Brotherhood of Tibet” and, as with the Theosophists’ otherworldly “masters” that have throughout history made contact with and guided humanity, Adamski’s aliens originate from planets within our solar system) seemed primed to utilize the newly-minted – and then wildly popular – flying saucer mythology as a means of disseminating his decades-old message of peace, love and interstellar brotherhood.

Adamski's first book regarding his alien encounters.
Adamski’s first book regarding his alien encounters.

Gulyas also discusses the religious aspects of the contactees, in particular George Van Tassel’s contact with Ashtar, George King’s Aetherius Society, Truman Betherum’s anti-establishment Aura Rhanes, George Hunt Williamson’s proto-von Däniken claims of alien influence on ancient civilizations (which, apart from the disclosure movement is currently perhaps the most culturally significant UFO subject; witness the success of the History Channel’s recent Ancient Aliens television series [2010-present]), and George Adamski visitation by the menacing, ghostly Men in Black, an encounter that occurred roughly contemporaneously with Adamski’s meeting with Orthon.
Contrasting Adamski’s benevolent, blonde-haired Orthon with Bender’s sinister Men in Black, Gulyas makes a compelling case for how contactee literature roughly approximates the dichotomous nature of that highly anomalous decade of the 1950s: an era of either utopian promise – including meetings with our advanced space brothers who will lead us into a new golden age – or dystopian nightmare. In the case of the latter, Cold War era concerns of Communist infiltration and subversiveness led to FBI investigations of US citizens, and flying saucer groups in particular. It has been speculated that the Men in Black may have been nothing more than government agents; Bender, perhaps fantasy prone or suffering from some form of paranoid delusion, imagined a routine governmental investigation into his group, the International Flying Saucer Bureau, to be a visitation from demonic, otherworldly beings.
Gulyas writes that “while the contactee phenomenon persisted through the 1970s and 1980s, the major shift in thinking was that theories of extraterrestrial visitation shifted to a much darker vision,” a vision Bender’s visitors in some ways anticipated. This vision, explains Gulyas, manifested through two main ideas: the alien abduction narrative – via the contact claims of Elizabeth Klarer (1954-1963), the abductions of Antonio Villas Boas (1957) and Betty and Barney Hill (1961), the Paul Bennewitz affair (1979-1988), Whitley Streiber’s Communion (1987), and the modern day abduction/hybrid alien claim, with its (often disturbing) sexual overtones – and the political conspiracy theory concerning governmental knowledge of crashed flying saucers and subsequent alien colonization of Earth; this was, after all, post-Kennedy assassination, post-Watergate America and governmental conspiracies became increasingly voguish. These cover-up theories, kept alive by the subsequent disclosure movement, have their roots in Frank Scully’s investigation of the crashed saucer at Aztec, New Mexico (now a largely debunked hoax) (1950), Donald Keyhoe’s speculations (1950, 1953) that the US government is engaged in a vast cover-up of alien visitation spurred by the use of nuclear warheads (in much the same way that nuclear blasts brought Earth to the attention of various Venusian and Martian beings who made contact with the likes of Adamski), Bender’s Men in Black, Adamski’s “Silence Group” (first mentioned in 1957), Frank Edwards’ best-selling books  (1966, 1967), the 1947 Roswell, New Mexico flying saucer crash as initially recounted by Charles Berlitz and William Moore (1980) and the surrounding Wright Patterson, Hangar 18 and Area 51 memes.

Much of this speculation concerning government cover-up can be traced to early saucerologist dissatisfaction with the Air Force’s explanations for the UFO phenomenon, most famously J. Allen Hynek’s “swamp gas,” and the belief that rapid advances in technology are the result of back-engineered alien machinery retrieved from various crashed saucer and/or secretive government contact made with space beings. The most sordid (and irresponsible) of theories – such as those propagated by William Cooper and John Lear in the 80s and 90s – combines government cover-up and abduction memes into one vast, overarching conspiracy theory involving aliens acting in collusion with the US government in an effort to abduct and experiment upon unsuspecting civilians, and of an ongoing interstellar warfare in which Earth has become a battlefield.
By far the most interesting – and revelatory – portions of Gulyas’ book are those chapters that trace the modern abduction and exopolitical themes of the UFO phenomenon to the contactees of the 1950s, in part because Gulyas is among the first historians to attempt to connect these contactees of the classic flying saucer era to our modern age, regarding them as similar identical cultural expressions. Previous studies, Gulyas argues, regard contactees as a product of Cold War hysteria or as new religious movements and have tended to ignore them as a useful means of examining subjects as diverse as “military policy, the changing organizational structure of the US government, popular culture [and] the use of media,” all of which are explored in Gulyas’ book. Indeed, Gulyas carefully traces the various sociocultural factors (such as Theosophy and science fiction, consumerism and Cold War politics) that contributed to the contactee phenomenon; certainly Richard Wise’s The Day the Earth Stood Still (1950) and Ray Palmer’s “Shaver Mystery” (1945-1949) inspired the contactees as much as any silvery objects in the sky.
Gulyas contends that the contactee movement, believed to have ended in the early 1960s around the same time that the Civil Rights and Vietnam era took hold of the public’s attention, has in fact continued to the present, though like any cultural phenomenon, its features have changed with the times. Observes Gulyas, these “storytellers exist on a parallel track to the Beats, the counterculture of the sixties, the New Age movement of the 1970s, and the ennui and paranoia of the 1980s and 1990s.” With this in mind, it seems appropriate that Bender’s sinister Men in Black, and not Adamski’s Orthon, seems to have captured the conspiratorially-minded imagination of the present, from Hollywood films (Men in Black [1997] and its two sequels) to television (The X-Files [1990-1998];the time travelers on Fringe [2008-2013] are basically a modified variation).

Refreshingly, Gulyas’ Extraterrestrials and the American Zeitgeist makes no claims to the truth of the contactee experience, yet instead offers a readable, jargon-free, well-researched and insightful analysis of the contactee’s cultural impact and continued relevance, charting its various manifestations intelligibly and authoritatively. It is a welcome addition to a handful of books offering a penetrative and balanced exploration of the psychological and sociological importance of the UFO phenomenon.

UFO A PALERMO. L'IMMAGINE DI UN AVVISTAMENTO!




E' stato definito un "oggetto non identificato" e la sua foto è stata condivisa su youreporter.it. Curioso fenomeno nel cielo di Palermo. Questa foto infatti è stata scattata al porto: "Tra la nave della Tirrenia e la grande nuvola illuminata dal sole al tramonto - si legge tra i commenti - s'intravede una macchia nera nel cielo. Cos'è?"
 
 

Sicilia, scatta una foto e scopre UFO: avvistato un disco volante a Castelbuono

















Una mattina come tante altre, uno scatto dal balcone e una strana macchia nera scoperta per caso nel cielo sopra casa. E’ quanto capitato a un residente di Castelbuono, paese in provincia di Palermo.
La foto è stata scattata alle 6,45 dello scorso sabato 24 maggio da un  lettore di BlogSicilia.it che, interessato dal problema delle scie chimiche (sulle quali è molto diffusa sul web la teoria su un possibile complotto legato all’irrorazione di sostanze sospette nell’aria) ha immortalato una porzione di cielo. Una volta scaricato sul computer il file, la scoperta: tra le nuvole era presente un oggetto di colore nero dalla forma simile a un disco volante.
Quella in questione è solo l’ultima segnalazione della presenza di possibili ufo (letteralmente, oggetti volanti non identificati) nei cieli siciliani.
La domanda è sempre la stessa: gli extraterrestri esistono o ci sono risposte più plausibili dietro ad ogni fantomatico avvistamento? L’analisi delle “prove”, il più delle volte, ha svelato spiegazioni differenti dalle ipotesi di incontri ravvicinati del terzo tipo. Testimonianze e scetticismo continuano a dividere.

UFO Following Two Jets Over China On Google Earth

 

Date of discovery: May 30, 201
Location of discovery: Xiang Dao, Zheng Yang Xian, Zhumadian, Henan, China
Coordinates: 32°24'14.46”N  114°32'57.39”E

  

Now Google has deleted every UFO I have ever reported on their map within 3-6 months of making the video. This will also disappear soon, so please confirm  in the video comments on Youtube that it is there, otherwise lots of people will just say its fake without even checking. 

  

This glowing orb is most likely a disk. The trail behind it is more of a mist than a contrail. The UFO causes a distortion of space around it and that is the trail we see it leaving. We can tell that the UFO is lower than the bigger jet and higher than the lowest jet. Because of that we have a size comparison that makes it a little bigger than a 747. SCW

We Are Not Alone - The Alien Implants





“Alien Implants” – Where did these things originated in? What is its purpose? And who are those responsible for placing these untraceable objects inside the human body?

alien implantsFor the past years many people have been asking scientist Steve Colbern for answers but his expertise as a material scientist never gave them a conclusive answer.

Steve Colbern works with Dr. Roger Leir and a team who is specialists in locating, extracting, and studying alien implants. As soon as these mysterious objects are taken from a patient’s body, they conduct a series of tests to identify its properties and through these tests they unravel some of the many secrets that are related to these alien objects.

One thing that is certain, whoever implanted these objects intelligently knows so much about the human body. These tiny objects are successfully placed and stayed inside human tissue without the host feeling some discomfort or pain and surprisingly these objects are not easily detected. Some implants remain hidden inside the body even decades long before getting discovered.

Most alien implants are metal and many of these objects are regarded as tracking devices. The implants have a specialized carbon nano-tubes network that is deemed to emit radio signals. These sophisticated devices could be allowing the entities to hear and see the way the host body is hearing and seeing said Dr. Leir.

A recent patient of Colbern’s team is a 50 year old man. He said that he was abducted when he was only 10 in a camping, out in the forest. He remembers that the unknown beings inserted something in his left wrist. 40 years later he still has the alien implant until Dr. Leir and his team extracted it from him. The object was exceptionally unbreakable even diamond cutting tools could not break through.

alien implant
Presently Colbern is investigating on a dye found all over abductee’s body which remained in their skin for about a month. According to his observation, the dye is very difficult to wash off and it can only be seen through a special UV-ray lighting as it is invisible to the naked eye. Colbern suspected that the dye is some kind of marker to help aliens to monitor their human experiments.

There are more of these studies that Colbern and Dr. Leir is keeping for future research. They suggest that such cases must be taken seriously by people as it is a worldwide matter. Yes, we are alone in this world but alien objects that Colbern and Dr. Leir remove from multitude of patients are solid evidence, enough to tell that we are receiving visits from the unknown.

Has Alien Life Already Been Found? Five Scientist Who Think So

No one has convinced everyone in the scientific community that extraterrestrial life exists. But almost since space exploration began, research has emerged that seemed to show signs of life on meteorites or on Mars.

Several NASA astrobiologists and other researchers have said they found compelling evidence of alien life. Here’s a look at five studies.


1. Meteorite Fossils?



NASA astrobiologist Richard Hoover, who has said he's found what could be evidence of extraterrestrial life. (NASA)

NASA astrobiologist Richard Hoover has said he found fossil evidence of cyanobacteria on meteorites.

In a post on the NASA website in 2007, Hoover wrote: “It is concluded that the well-preserved, fossilized filaments and dense mats found in Orgueil [meteorite] represent the remains of a complex aquatic and benthic cyanobacterial mat community that grew on the parent body of the meteorite prior to entry into Earth’s atmosphere.”

Skeptics said Hoover’s study was questionable, because cyanobacteria live in water and require sunlight to grow—conditions unlikely on comets.

2. Controversial Meteorite Study Closer to Vindication




In 1996, chief astrobiologist for NASA David McKay, announced the discovery of microscopic life from Mars. Bill Clinton lauded the discovery and it received much publicity before being called into question. With new technology, however, NASA researchers found evidence in 2011 to further support McKay’s theory.


“We feel more confident than ever that Mars probably once was, and maybe still is, home to life,” McKay said at a 2011 NASA-sponsored conference on astrobiology, according to the Daily Galaxy.

In 1996, McKay had argued that methane and other materials found on the meteorite were likely produced by microorganisms. Others argued that the materials may have been produced by either heating or shock decomposition of inorganic matter.

The NASA team tested these hypotheses and concluded that the magnetites most likely could not have been produced in these ways. The theory that they were produced by living beings is still makes the strongest case.

McKay died in 2013 at the age of 77.

3. Decades Later, Gilbert Levin Maintains Viking Landers Found Life on Mars




In 1976, Viking Mars landers seemed to find living microorganisms in the planet’s soil. Gilbert Levin developed a “labeled-release” experiment for NASA. Here’s how it worked, as detailed by John Hopkins University magazine:

1. The landers scooped up Martian soil.
2. The soil was sealed in a box with a radiation detector to measure the base radiation.
3. Nutrients were injected into the soil in doses. The assumption was, if the soil contained microorganisms and those microorganisms were similar to Earth’s, they would take in the nutrients and respirate, which would be picked up by the radiation detector.
4. As a control, another soil sample was taken and heated to a level that would kill any microorganisms; the same process was applied to that sample.
5. Levin said the difference in radiation between the two samples would show whether there was life on Mars.
6. The test indeed showed emissions from the soil that suggested life, while the heated sample showed an absence of those emissions.

NASA conducted another experiment with a different method developed by MIT that didn’t show life in the soil. That test used a gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer (GC-MS), and failed to detect organic compounds, meaning the soil could not contain life as we understand it on Earth.

NASA said Levin’s experiment must have been inaccurate—that a chemical difference in the soil must have accounted for the results. Though Levin publicly stated that further research was needed and it may have been that the soil somehow mimicked biological respiration, he was privately convinced that only biology (and not chemistry) could account for the Viking lander test results.

In 2002, Levin told John Hopkins magazine that he remains convinced the experiment found life on Mars in 1976.

4. Alien Life Arrives on Comets?

 




A sampling device launched into the Earth’s stratosphere by U.K. researchers in July 2013 came back with
what they say is evidence of alien life transported on comets.

A report published in the Journal of Cosmology by the University of Sheffield researchers states the device brought back biological entities “too large to have been carried from Earth.”

“As a result, we conclude that the biological entities arrived from space, probably from comets.”

The device also brought back three biological entities unlike anything seen before. One is described as a “flat sculptured surface which appears like a cell.” Another is a “shield-like structure.” And another is “a long tube-like structure possessing a fibre-like interior.”

The Journal of Cosmology has been criticized by some skeptics. The journal describes itself as a peer-reviewed publication established with “an editorial policy unlike all other scientific journals, which was an openness to all scientific ideas even those which the editors disagreed with and those which challenged the cherished idols of the status quo.” Its editor-in-chief is Harvard-Smithsonian astrophysicist Dr. Rudolf Schild.

5. Red Rain






One of the elements found in the stratosphere as described above resembles a red rain cell, according to the University of Sheffield researchers’ report. Red rain cells have also been the subject of a controversial study claiming evidence of alien life.

Parts of Kerala State, India, experienced red-colored rain in 2001.

In 2001, it was attributed to “colored lichen-forming algal spores of local origin” by India’s Centre for Earth Science Studies.

In 2003, it was attributed by scientists at the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre to a colored dust cloud that had traveled to India from the Persian Gulf, according to a Times of India article from that time.

In 2006, Santhosh Kumar and Godfrey Louis, both physicists at the Mahatma Gandhi University in Kerala, suggested a link between the red-colored particles and a meteor airburst event.

They found biological cells in the rain; the cells, they said, strangely had no DNA. They argued for the possibility of extraterrestrial origin from cometary fragments.
