Giant Circular Object Moving On The Ocean Floor Detected By Satellite

Google Maps has done it again! This time satellite imagery shows a massive circular object moving on the Pacific floor.


First of all, here’s the link to Google Maps so you can see the thing for yourself.

The deep, dark ocean is full of many mysteries and a lot of processes could be responsible for creating this round shape and the wide trench it left behind. Could this be a massive UFO that is on the move? If so, it brings up the question of alien motherships and their ability to act as temporary bases.

After all, the best place for an extraterrestrial to set up camp would be far from prying human eyes and the seabed makes an ideal location.

UFO researchers have calculated the size of the circular object to be approximately 2.8 miles in diameter. The curving trail it left behind measures some 46 miles in length.

ufo on ocean floorNow we all know deep ocean currents can be very strong but are they strong enough to move a mountain-sized object across that distance? I doubt it and I suspect the movement was orchestrated by some kind of intelligence.

It’s a well-known fact that UFOs – interstellar mother ships in particular – have the ability to camouflage themselves, so this one could have assumed the shape of an unassuming rock. And since the camo tech goes wherever the UFO goes, its occupants would have been unable to mask the trail carved into the sediment.

So if we’re willing to accept the possibility that this round object is indeed a UFO, the next logical question would be Is it still functional? By the looks of it, it doesn’t seem like it crashed to the bottom of the ocean. If that were the case, we would have seen a straight or slightly curved trail behind it. Since it appears the object made several left-right maneuvers before reaching its current position, we can infer that it’s still up and running. Technically down and running.

In any case, this is all just speculation. Until one of us inherits a submarine and goes one mile under the surface to check it out, this mysterious object can be anything. A rock. A UFO. Amy Schumer’s sense of humor.

Hawking Warns: Without A World Government, Technology Will Kill Us Like Ants

The globally-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has issued another warning: without global unity, technology will eventually overcome mankind. Is he right about this one?


Two of his previous notices included a stern warning that artificial intelligence is a sword with multiple edges and that as a species, we only have about 1,000 years to colonize another planet before we start withering off.

One of the brightest minds alive, Hawking admits he is seen as an alarmist. But that’s just the thing with early adopters, they are always perceived as standing on the high-end of the spectrum. AI has the capacity to overthrow our dominance simply because it can evolve to become much more intelligent than we are, both as individuals and as a species.

“Since civilization began, aggression has been useful since it has definite survival advantages,” Prof. Hawking told the NY Times. “It is hard-wired into our genes by Darwinian evolution. Now, however, technology has advanced at such a pace that this aggression may destroy us all by nuclear or biological war. We need to control this inherited instinct by our logic and reason.”

As for the fact that we’re rapidly exhausting the available resources on our planet, that isn’t news. The Earth itself could say that we’re not very good tenants and there wouldn’t be any argument against it.

Humanity is facing a lot of problems right now and it’s easy to see how our hopes could turn to artificial intelligence. It could offer solutions to many of our dilemmas but the alarming rate of its evolution could also spell doom.

And that wouldn’t be because a super-intelligent AI would be malicious by nature, but because there’s a great chance it could evolve to not give a rat’s ass about humans and their misery. If it goals differed from ours, we’d just be in its way. And what do we do with obstacles? We remove them. Simple as that, and well-evidenced in Hawking’s anthill analogy:

You’re probably not an evil ant-hater who steps on ants out of malice, but if you’re in charge of a hydroelectric green energy project, and there’s an anthill in the region to be flooded, too bad for the ants. Let’s not place humanity in the position of those ants.”

technology kill

The solution Hawking proposes could fix this one problem but it brings up an even scarier alternative. A unified global government. Now where have we heard that before? Ah right, the New World Order. Good times, good times.

The problems posed by unchecked AI progress could in theory be solved by the emergence of a centralized, worldwide organization whose purposes would include keeping a close eye on the evolution of said artificial intelligence. That way, it would identify and solve any potential problem even before it became problematic. Hawking believes that a prerequisite of such an organization would be a global government. But this could pose an even bigger complication to our already difficult lives.

We know how human beings are. Give a man even a whiff of power and he’ll start abusing it in no time at all. In the event of a global government taking control, tyranny would be installed the following day. Do you have any doubts about this? Look at the world leaders of today. Are empathy and benevolence present among their traits? Because to me, it seems these words aren’t even in their vocabulary.

And today, with the world being divided among different governments, each and every one of them is busy undermining and fighting each other. In a global government, these petty squabbles wouldn’t take up their time and energy; these would be mainly directed to controlling the population. We’re not people to them, we’re resources.

Hawking wanted to end his warning on a sweet note:

All this may sound a bit doom-laden, but I am an optimist. I think the human race will rise to meet these challenges.”

Hope you’re right, Professor, hope you’re right.

Footprint Discovered On Mars Proves The Planet Is NOT Lifeless

Or at least it proves astronauts have already visited the planet!


A footprint discovered on Mars is incredible news and I can’t believe the controversial image is hosted on an official NASA server for everyone to see. (Image HERE)

What makes this image special is the fact that the print bears an uncanny resemblance to the footprints left behind by the astronauts on the Moon. One cannot simply ignore the similarity between the images.

The official explanation is given in a NASA caption stating that “soil disturbed by the left front wheel of the Spirit rover evokes impressions of the first footprint on Mars.”

The first footprint on Mars. They said it themselves.

You might known the Spirit rover and its tracks from an image that you love sharing in the comment section whenever someone mentions Mars. This one:

You think this was accidental?

 

As you can see from the image, the tracks left behind by the Spirit rover look nothing like the footprint we’re talking about. Unlike the markings left behind by a grooved wheel, this footprint is irregular in terms of where pressure was applied: the tip and the heel. The same can be said about the moon footprint, which leads us to believe both were the result of a human wearing space boots.

footprint discovered on mars
Has reason been given the boot or does this look like anything else?

 

The crazy image has already caused the jaws of a lot of people to drop and you can’t blame them because it’s hard to dismiss the fact that they really do look like the imprint an astronaut’s boot would leave in the fine dust covering the surface of the so-called red planet. Because, you know, this is what Mars really looks like:

mars true color

Mars has been historically known as the red planet because of its association with war—and by extension, blood. One of the earliest recorded names given to Mars was Har decher, meaning “Red One” in Egyptian. To the naked eye, Mars appears red but the truth is NASA has been altering the color of images sent back by its rovers to hide the fact that Mars has a blue sky, not the hazy grey you’ve been seeing.

If they’re tampering with such important details, one naturally has to wonder about what other aspects have been doctored.

In this context, and considering the much-speculated NASA secret programs, this image could become palpable proof that humans have already been to Mars. This hypothesis is corroborated by the admissions of more than a few whistleblowers, some of whom even claimed to have participated in the top-secret missions to our planetary neighbor.

So is it unreasonable of us when we ask What the Hell is going on on Mars?

Russia Is Now Recruiting Cosmonauts For A Secret Moon Mission

What are they hoping to find up there?


The space race is on again, but this time, the stakes could be much higher. In a previous article I told you about Roscosmos (Russia’s government-run space agency) and the ESA (European Space Agency) having set up a plan to build a permanent base on the dark side of the Moon. Now the Russians are looking to set up a team of cosmonauts for a future lunar mission.

Over the following four months, a rigorous selection process will take place and Russian citizens who meet the demands will get to set foot on Earth’s natural satellite. This will mark the first (official) time the people of the former USSR will land a manned vehicle on the lunar surface.

Naturally, the requirements for acceptance will be harsh; superior education and a top physical and psychological shape are a must. The cosmonauts will have to be fit, under the age of 35, between 4’9 and 6’3 tall and their weight must be in between 110 and 200 pounds. Another prerequisite is that they be proficient in email, social media and anti-virus protection. Huh, I guess the world’s best hackers need to protect themselves.

The Russian space agency estimates the landing will take place sometime around the year 2030 so the race is on and will be tight.

secret moon mission

Another player that set its eyes on the old moon is China. The world’s second largest economy is already working on a spacecraft that will be able to plant six astronauts on the dusty lunar expanse.

It seems worldwide interest in reaching the nearest celestial bodies is at an all-time high. We haven’t seen such competition since the 1960s and this is a good thing in itself but it also raises some legitimate questions, especially when considering the current state of things related to UFO and alien contact research.

Have these space agencies finally decided to send astronauts to explore explore the multitude of structures gathering dust on the Moon? It is strange that they chose to do it in a visible, public way. Some say that this is evidence we are being prepared for a monumental disclosure the likes we’ve never heard before.

Will the revolution be televised?

Glimpse Of Black Knight Satellite Watching Us

The Space Station responsible for a lot of orbital UFO sightings has done it again! This time we have a sneak peek of the infamous BNS.


The Black Knight Satellite is one of the strangest, most mysterious alien objects to have graced Earth with its presence. And, as a lot of UFO researchers will tell you, it’s been keeping an eye on humanity for over 13,000 years, constantly checking our progress and reporting to its far away masters.

In a recent video uploaded to YouTube by Streetcap1, the enigmatic alien satellite shows its irregular shape once again and let me tell you, it doesn’t look like a thermal blanket.

The object does not resemble any known satellite that we’ve put into orbit and its architecture is definitely alien-looking. There are no solar panels attached to its frame, which leads us into believing the alien object must employ some other type of propulsion and energy systems.

The Black Knight Satellite rapidly gained worldwide notoriety following NASA’s STS-88 mission, the first space shuttle mission to the International Space Station. A number of photos taken during the mission show a strange object floating above Earth. Many came to believe the photos were proof of the existence of the alien satellite, but NASA shot down these allegations by claiming the photos showed nothing more than a thermal blanked, a piece of insulation that had drifted away from the ISS.

In modern times, the story of the Black Knight Satellite can be traced back to 1954, three years before the world’s first artificial satellite was launched. A group of scientists at the White Sands government facility in New Mexico had picked up strange, periodic signals that were being emitted by an unknown source orbiting Earth. By 1960, even the United States’ Department of Defense had acknowledged this alien presence.

If we dig deeper, we’ll discover the same radio source had been identified by a team of Norwegian researchers in 1928 and prior to them, even world famous inventor Nikola Tesla.

In 1899, while experimenting with high-voltage radio transmission equipment, Tesla picked up what he believed were alien signals coming from a source very close to Earth.

“I felt as though I were present at the birth of a new knowledge or the revelation of a great truth,” Tesla wrote. “My first observations positively terrified me as there was present in them something mysterious, not to say supernatural.”

Thermal blanket, shmermal blanket.

 

Going back further in time, we can find mentions in religious texts of a Dark Watcher looming above the firmament. The texts never mention its origin or nature but some proponents of alternative history have taken to calling it the Dark Ark. They suspect the satellite is actually a genetic repository of sorts, and that it contains DNA samples from the advanced cultures that existed on Earth in ancient times.

Evidence in support of either theory is hard to come by, because, come on, do you have the technology to go into low Earth orbit and start looking for an object that shouldn’t be there?

And those who do have no interest in sharing their findings with the rest of the world, so our best shot in uncovering the truth about the Black Knight Satellite would be to sort through existing literature and cross-reference it with ancient texts and mythological accounts.

If we find nothing, then it’s settled and we can go on with our lives. But how comfortable would you sleep knowing that the unblinking, ever-watchful eye of an alien satellite is always up there? It’s enough that we have our governments spying on our every action.

is This Video Of Metallic UFOs Over Giza Pyramids CGI?

A video showing three metallic UFOs over the Pyramids at Giza has become an internet sensation. The UFOs themselves look like inverted pyramids.


The quality of this video is the first thing worth mentioning and to be completely honest, it is a far cry from the blurry, shaky footage that we’re used to seeing. (Strike 1)

The footage was uploaded to YouTube by Section 51 2.0, a channel whose description reads “these videos are for entertainment purposes only.” (Strike 2)

In the video, a crowd of tourists are admiring the Pyramids of Giza while three bizarre UFOs are seen hovering above the ancient monuments. The objects themselves appear to be made from a metallic material with reflective properties. Apart from that, the UFOs themselves appear to be upside-down replicas of the pyramids that hover while slowly rotating.

The video component is accompanied by ominous sky-trumpet sounds that would have you believe the UFOs are performing some kind of scan of the pyramids.

The video description gives no details about the sighting other than the fact that the footage was taken in April 2016 and the sighting lasted for four hours. Four hours of extraterrestrial presence and all we have is 2 and a half minutes of video? (Strike 3)

If what the video uploaders say is true, the Giza plateau would have been swarming with reporters and we would have had ample footage from thousands of sources and angles. The event would have become a worldwide sensation and would have probably become the best UFO evidence ever.

Even if we’re to ignore all the points above, there is an aspect that certifies this video is fake: the people’s reaction, or better yet, their lack of reaction. Tourists and locals are seen going about their business as if the crystal-clear UFOs weren’t there. In the case of a genuine sighting, all the eyes would have been glued to the objects and everything else would go unnoticed.

ufos over giza pyramids
“What UFOs?”

 

Having examined thousands of UFO videos I can attest to most of them being CGI – some clever and some obvious fakes. Others are simply natural phenomena that have been misinterpreted or feature conventional aircraft that only look like UFOs in the right light.

With the world’s increased interest in aliens and UFOs it’s easy to see how some want to capitalize on humanity’s interests and fears and that is why people keep making fake videos. But despite all the lies and deception, there still remains a large number of genuine videos showing unexplained events that feature otherworldly presences. These should be the focus of honest research because the question of aliens on Earth should interest us all.

I have to admit that in my quest to show aliens are real I too have fallen into many traps and—willingly or not—shared them with the readers of UFOholic. For that I apologize and urge you to keep your eyes peeled and not let yourselves be fooled. Be safe and vigilant!

Photos Reveal The Entrance To The Secret Chambers Below The Sphinx

These rare photos reveal what the present is hiding from us: mysterious entrances into the world’s largest and oldest statue, the Great Sphinx of Giza.


Probably the most famous monolithic monument on this planet, the Great Sphinx of Giza has been a constant source of fascination for those interested in our world’s past. It triggers the imagination and for that alone, the legacy of its mysterious builders is carried on.

Mainstream archaeology claims the Sphinx was built in the 26th century B.C. during the reign of Pharaoh Khafre but many authors disagree with this theory. They are convinced the Sphinx is far older than the ancient Egyptians and as a result, the aura of mystery around the monument grows larger.

If that is the case, who built it and for what purpose? Can we find evidence in support of these affirmations? Would it allow us to learn more about the ancient builders of the Great Sphinx?

The Riddle of the Sphinx has been puzzling Egyptologists and amateurs alike ever since Europeans (re)discovered the Sphinx buried in sand. But it might surprise you to learn that even while covered up to its chest, the ancient statue was much more inclined to give up its secrets than it is today.

sphinx secret chambers

The photo above was taken from a hot air balloon sometime in the 18th century. Notice the opening at the top of its head? That opening is no longer visible today, so this is an instance when the cover-up is both literal and figurative.

Early photos also show a large fissure accompanying an entrance located at the top of the Sphinx’s hips and many have surmised that opening led to a secret burial chamber. What you may or may not know is that the burial chamber was added to the Sphinx much later and might have no real value in the effort to find out the monument’s real story.

Skeptics might say that the secret chambers of the Sphinx are actually an open secret and they are partially right.

In the early 1800s, English Egyptologist Henry Salt reportedly entered the cavity beneath the altar of the Sphinx. What he found there remains a mystery but what we do know is that he hastily sealed off the tunnel after a heated argument with his fellow explorer, the French antiquary LNP Auguste de Forbin.

sphinx hidden chamber entrance

Another “restoration” that took place in 1926 involved several other secret entrances. The decision of French Egyptologist Émile Baraize to fill those entrances and the connected tunnels with cement has robbed future explorers of the chance to take a peek into this enigmatic masterpiece.

And why should that matter? Because it might have something to do with humanity as a whole and if we’re to believe mystics and psychics, the Giza plateau could be home to the fabled Hall of Records.

The mystery of this knowledge-containing chamber dates back to Pliny the Elder but according to some authors, it could be much, much older.

great sphinx hidden chambers

It’s been claimed that the original builders of the Sphinx belonged to a superior race of highly-intelligent beings and that the secret chamber contains their accumulated knowledge circa 10.500 B.C. It is unclear whether this race could be linked to the survivors of the Atlantis cataclysm or was extraterrestrial altogether.

Others propose that we will never find the Hall of Records, simply because this is not a physical place but rather a collection of thoughts and events encoded in the non-physical realm

Whatever the case may be, the mystery of the secret chambers beneath the Sphinx will maintain its allure over the human intellect. This is because our quest for knowledge about our origins, our creators is hardcoded into humanity’s collective journey.

Enigmatic, unexplainable objects like the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant, Atlantis, Shambhala and the Akashic records are checkpoints in our search for sacred knowledge and at the same time, keys that could unlock the truth about reality.

Bizarre Case of Grey Alien Shot And Killed At Base

Witnesses in a strange and unexplained UFO case claim an alien was shot dead at an U.S. Air Force Base in New Jersey.


Ever since this case was presented to the public, numerous UFO researchers have tried getting to the bottom of it with little to no success.

As the story goes, in the early hours of January 18, 1978, after a night of heavy UFO activity over the McGuire Air Force Base near Trenton, NJ, an extraterrestrial being ended up losing its life on the tarmac.

Details of the case have been submitted by one Major George A. Filer III, who was an Air Force Intelligence Officer at that time. According to his testimony, a small, grey alien had been shot by a military policeman after the being had left the safety of its spacecraft.

While he was driving near the base, the policeman noticed the UFO activity was on the high-end of the spectrum and was already in a state of high alert when he came upon a “small being with a large head, black eyes and a very slender body.” Believing they were being invaded, he panicked, got out of his car, pulled out his .45 caliber handgun and demanded that the being lay down on the ground.

Naturally, the grey alien did not comply so the policeman fired several shots. Wounded, the being climbed the fence into McGuire AFB, took a few more steps and then collapsed on the runway.

grey alien shot at mcguire afb

Filer did not witness the event firsthand, but was briefed by the head of the command post over at McGuire AFB.

“He was very specific about the fact that an alien from outer space had been shot at Fort Dix, and that he had run away after being wounded, and headed for McGuire,” Filer told UFO investigator Dr. Steven Greer. “Now McGuire and Fort Dix just have a fence between them, and this alien apparently climbed the fence or went under it, and got to McGuire and died out on the end of the runway.”

Filer got there just in time to see the aftermath of an alien being shot to death.

The security police were already there, guarding the body of an alien “crouched in a fetal position, not breathing.”

Another witness to this scene was Sgt. Jeff Morse, one of the officers who roped off the body to keep anyone from tampering with it before the specialists arrived. It is very likely that ‘Morse’ is a pseudonym intended to keep the witness’ identity secret.

Morse told UFO investigators that the “specialists” consisted of a team of military officers wearing blue berets and that their first order of business was to order everybody to take a few steps back, enough that they wouldn’t be able to see the details.

But he managed to see enough to confirm Filer’s description of the otherworldly being. He vividly remembers “the skin of the unclad, hairless body was wet, shiny and snake-like.”

The entity was about four feet in height with a large head, slender torso, thin arms and legs, and overall, of grayish-brown coloration.”

grey alien shot mugshot

The Blue Berets kept spraying the body with liquid from a portable tank, probably in an effort to preserve it. It was then placed onto a wooden platform and a wooden frame was quickly built around it. The entire assembly then went into a large metal container which was then loaded onto a C-141 cargo airplane that landed on site.

Nobody who’s willing to talk knows where the dead grey alien was taken but some researchers suspect it was brought to the Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio, the same place that housed the alien bodies recovered from the 1947 crashes in Roswell, NM.

By their own admissions, Morse and Flier were later flown to Wright-Patterson and subjected to strict interrogations. Although they were interrogated on separate occasions, they were basically given the same warning: “keep quiet or you’re done!”

They told me about my duty to keep my mouth shut… I signed a form and it is supposed to bind me for life” – Sgt. Morse

One would be entitled to ask: what had triggered the intense UFO activity over McGuire AFB and what was the alien doing out of its craft and on the side of the road? Filer’s testimony answers the first question:

It was a very serious operation. There are nuclear assets on the base — they used to carry nuclear weapons back and forth to Europe.”

As for the presence of the lone ET, Filer suspects that one of the UFOs crash landed or was shot down and in an attempt to gain sanctuary, the alien was heading for the Air Force Base.

Recently, the case has made a comeback but despite the fresh interest, it is unlikely that more details will surface. This incident, like so many before it, raises a legitimate concern. As omni.media reports, “we have an alien race expecting one of their own to eventually come home. They just probably weren’t expecting it to be in a body bag.”

Still, if retaliation hasn’t come in the nearly 40 years since the incident took place, we could consider ourselves safe. Or should we?

Penis-Shaped UFO Photographed Over Johnstown, Ontario (Not Kidding)

Is this a sign that they’re screwing with us?


UFOs come in all shapes and sizes but the lights on this one would have you think it was  shaped like a dong.

A few days ago, readers of a popular UFO subreddit were the first to see this intriguing image of an unidentified flying object. The sighting caused a lot of reactions and a basketload of male sex organ jokes. No one expected otherwise, this is the internet after all.

The uploader of the image, user georgeiscurios said he saw the object as it was crossing the St. Lawrence river at approximately 10:30 P.M. It was its unusual shape that caught his attention and his only regret was that his iPhone 5 wasn’t able to take a photo with better resolution.

When I pulled over to take the pic, I thought to myself “that is an enormous Johnson.”

penis shaped ufo
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

 

The object, which appears huge considering the apparent distance that separated it from georgeiscurious, slowly moved in a straight line from south to north.

It made no sudden changes in direction or outlandish maneuvers. Standard aircraft are required to have blinking lights, but the ones on this object were solid.

Another thing that looked solid was the object itself, and the witness claimed “there seemed to be a shape, as these lights all moved in unison and were perfectly parallel to eachother.”

The object was completely silent as it flew above the witness and once it crossed the river, the lights shut down and it seemed to have vanished.

There are no military bases in the area.

Some were quick to point out the UFO could have been a blimp but this theory can be easily shut down with one simple argument: the weather wouldn’t permit their safe flight. This time of the year, Canada sees cold temperatures and windy weather and that would pose a serious hazard to a blimp and its pilots.

If you check the Goodyear blimp’s schedule, you’ll see they are only flying in states with clear, warm weather.

Also, blimps and all other aircraft are required to have FAA-mandated lighting. This object has no blinking lights. And the shape we’re seeing in the photo doesn’t match with a blimp, it looks more like a zeppelin. But those haven’t been used in 80 years so what gives?

Just like a reptilian’s momma, a blimp is fatter than a zeppelin.

 

Furthermore, blimp engines are noisy and out there where it was quiet, the witness should have been able to hear them. Instead, all he heard was dead silence and probably the sound of his own heartbeat.

A blimp’s purpose is advertising. Therefore, it is equipped with lights that make its body visible to the people below. The message needs to be seen in order for the blimp to justify its presence.

Evidence seems to suggest this was not a blimp but something entirely different. If it was man-made, then ha-ha, nice prank!

If it wasn’t man-made and the work of extraterrestrials, one can only wonder what their intentions were.

Among members of the modern human race, the symbolism of the penis shape is well-known. Most of the times, it does not have a positive connotation attached to it. Have the aliens understood the intricacies of sarcastic imagery? Are they calling us dicks? Are they saying we’re not so different after all? Was the UFO piloted by teen aliens?

Is this the literal definition of space junk? I’ll see myself out.

The US Government Orders NASA: “Get Humans To Mars By 2033!”

The Congress Just Passed the NASA Authorization Act of 2017. Their new mission? Get mankind to Mars ASAP!


Along with the act, the chambers of Congress established NASA’s budget for 2017 at 19.5 billion dollars. Is that enough to get things going?

Now I now there are hundreds of conspiracy theories about NASA and their hidden projects. A lot of whistleblowers claim the space agency has had a presence on the red planet for a while now, and they already established manned colonies out there. Let’s set aside these theories for a while and focus on the official information that is available.

Like all of us, NASA set its eyes on Mars a long time ago. But the Authorization Act of 2017 underlines the importance of getting there. In the 1960s, the goal of the space race was to get to the Moon. Now it’s Mars’ turn. This has become NASA’s main quest.

“Mars is the appropriate long-term goal for the human space flight program.” – Authorization Act of 2017

The document states that NASA needs to “get humans near or on the surface of Mars in the 2030s” and since nobody in their right mind would oppose this venture, the bill is expected to become law.

In order to get humans to Mars, NASA has to establish an “initial human exploration roadmap” by December 1, 2017. The Congress believe that in order to attempt the colonization of or next door neighbor we must first come up with “strategic planning and timely decisions.”

A human exploration roadmap should begin with low-Earth orbit, then address in greater detail progress beyond low-Earth orbit to cis-lunar space, and then address future missions aimed at human arrival and activities near and then on the surface of Mars.”

Lately, we’ve been hearing a lot about humanity’s plan to get to Mars, but the news came from private companies (SpaceX) and foreign space agencies (China and the United Arab Emirates). So it makes sense that the world’s most famous player stepped in.

With the way things are looking, stakes are higher than ever. Many feel like mankind’s only longterm shot at survival involves expanding our presence into the universe. We’re screwing our planet like never before so the need for an “Option B” is dire.

Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX aims to create a permanent settlement on Mars. An optimist to his core, Musk plans to land a human crew by 2025 but there are still a lot of details that his company needs to iron out before that happens. He is convinced the future of the human race lies outside of our own planet and this new act shows that the U.S. Government shares his sentiment.

There is a strong humanitarian argument for making life multiplanetary in order to safeguard the existence of humanity. – Elon Musk

In the meantime, NASA scientists haven’t been sitting around, idly twiddling their thumbs. They have several rovers on the surface of the dusty planet and they plan on sending another one in 2020.

The road needs to be well paved, otherwise they’d be sending a crew to their untimely death. The Martian might have outlined survival scenarios on Mars but Science Fiction has a fiction attribute that doesn’t guarantee success in real life.

Now let the conspiracy theories flow.

Advanced UFOs Might Be Fueled By Cosmic Light Flashes, Study Claims

A new study claims that bizarre light flashes could be used by advanced aliens to accelerate their interstellar UFOs to blinding speeds.


In 2007, astronomers detected an extremely bright flash of light in a galaxy billions of light years away from us. Up until now, nobody has been able to explain that highly-energetic flash, and in the meantime, 20 more have been detected. They are called fast radio bursts (FRBs) and a team of Harvard-Smithsonian scientists believe aliens might be responsible for their creation.

“Fast radio bursts are exceedingly bright given their short duration and origin at great distances, and we haven’t identified a possible natural source with any confidence,” said study author Avi Loeb. An artificial origin is worth contemplating and checking,” he concluded.

The idea behind this assumption is not so alien after all. In case you missed it, Stephen Hawking announced his collaboration with NASA in their effort to send a probe to Earth 2.0, an exoplanet located in the Alpha Centauri star system.

The tiny probe would consist of a microchip equipped with micro-sensors and a one-meter light sail. The light sail catches light emitted by Earth-based lasers and uses the energy to slowly accelerate the probe through the emptiness of space.

breakthrough starshot
Just like a ship’s sail catches wind, a solar sail catches photons. It’s a proven design.

 

It would require powerful and precise lasers and the physicist is hoping it could reach α-Centauri in as little as 20 years. In order to complete the 25 trillion mile trip (4.37 light-years), the probe would have to reach a speed of 134 million miles per hour, which is only a fifth of the speed of light.

Now, considering the immensity of the universe and the wildly varying levels of technology that different alien civilizations could have, it stands to reason that some of them fit in the space between our own technological level and that of ultra-advanced ETs that master faster than light travel. We know (or at least suspect) that some of the alien species that visited Earth can create and travel through wormholes or are able to bend the rules of space and time in such ways they wouldn’t need massive flashes of light. This study probably isn’t focused on finding those aliens.

Instead, the fast radio bursts detected by astronomers could be the signature of extraterrestrials that are much more advanced than we are, but have yet to discover a more efficient way to crisscross the universe.

So how would these aliens’ spaceships work?

The scientists calculated, then calculated some more and gave us an answer: they would have to build a huge radio transmitter. It would need an enormous amount of power to function so, assuming that the aliens who built it outgrew their fossil fuel dependency, it would have to be solar-powered. Smart aliens know that their star’s power output is virtually limitless and harnessing it would pose no risk to their survival.

But they’d need to go really big; in order for their transmitter to work the sunlight-collecting area would have to be twice the size of the Earth. For a civilization 5,000 years ahead of us, that wouldn’t be impossible, only hard. But, as the old Roman saying goes, Per aspera ad astra – “through hardship to the stars.”

With that oversized solar panel in place, the scientists calculated that the extraterrestrials could efficiently move a spacecraft weighing 1 million tons. Even more exciting is the fact that during a human lifetime, that craft could easily travel between stars and even out of their home galaxy.

That’s big enough to carry living passengers across interstellar or even intergalactic distances” – study coauthor Manasvi Lingam, Harvard University.

As is almost always the case with the study of alien life, we have no proof that the FRBs detected by astronomers are the work of aliens. For all we know, they could be some type of neutrino star explosion we have yet to discover. But then again, look around you. Notice the diversity?

And that’s what we can see on our relatively small world, confined to a corner of a run-of-the-mill spiral galaxy. But there are one or two hundred billion more. In the observable universe. The cosmos could stretch on and on to infinity and we wouldn’t even know it, so our numbers could be way off.

Even if most intelligent species have the same self-destructing tendencies as we do, there would still be countless others who succeeded in finding the balance and the will to succeed. They are out there. They must be out there. So we’re allowed to dream.

Scientists Have Just Learned Saturn’s Moon Pan Looks Like A UFO!

A couple of days ago, images sent back by the Cassini spacecraft revealed a very odd fact: Saturn’s tiny moon Pan is shaped like a UFO!


Scientists say this peculiar shape is the result of a natural process, but we could also interpret it as a sign of the aliens’ passage and a result of spacescaping. Just for fun.

On March 7, Cassini flew by Pan at a distance of around 15,000 miles and the images it snapped show the beauty and mystery of one of the smaller satellites in the solar system. Before these images were received, astronomers believed Pan was walnut-shaped.

But this is no walnut, it’s a hat tip to the classic flying saucer shape!

The 22 mile-wide satellite was discovered in 1990 by analyzing images taken by the Voyager 2 probe and is named after Pan, the Greek god of shepherds, among other things.

Alongside 61 other satellites, Pan orbits Saturn in what is known as the Encke Gap, a 200 mile-wide rift in the planet’s outermost ring. Astronomers say Pan is responsible for creating the gap and they’re even calling it a ring shepherd because its gravity keeps the gap free of ring particles.

The official theory about Pan’s peculiar shape is that it collected ring particles as it orbited and deposited them along its equator. After billions of orbits (Pan completes an orbit around Saturn in less than 14 hours), the dust and ice in the rings of Saturn became Pan’s weird rim. As one redditor brilliantly put it, “it’s a mini Saturn forming a mini ring, using parts from big Saturn’s big ring.”

If you thought Pan was all alone in its weirdness, you were wrong.

This is Atlas. It orbits near the outer edge of Saturn’s A Ring and it’s not much bigger than Pan. Just like Pan, it exhibits a prominent equatorial ridge.

So it may not be aliens who are responsible for the UFO shape that Saturnian satellites sometimes take but that doesn’t make them any less weirder.

Enormous Tower On Ceres Spotted In Official NASA Images

In a newly-released set of NASA images, a 2-mile high structure is seen standing tall on the dwarf planet Ceres. They must have overlooked it.


The strange tower on Ceres was not able to escape the keen eye of prolific alien hunter Scott Waring, though.

An intriguing structure that seems artificial in nature, the tower can be found a short distance away from the infamous crater which is said to house even more alien buildings.

In another nearby crater, a strange hexagonal structure can be seen and not far away lies yet another tower. Not as tall as the other one, this secondary tower is an intriguing find nonetheless.

Although small and lacking an atmosphere, Ceres makes for one captivating celestial body. Only recently, astronomers announced the discovery of organic molecules on the surface of the dwarf planet. Furthermore, its position (smack in the middle of the asteroid belt) would make it an ideal place for aliens to build an outpost or mining facility.

Is this another tower on Ceres or are we being deceived by our own brains?

The organic compounds on Ceres could be used to produce fuel and probably sustenance while the proximity of asteroids would guarantee the acquisition of metals and minerals is an easy job.

In 2015, shortly after the Dawn spacecraft executed its first flyby of the tiny planetoid, the internet was inundated with theories about what really went on/still goes on Ceres.

Official NASA images provided many points on which conspiracy theories were hinged. Of particular interest were the highly-reflective structures nestled inside Ceres’ most prominent crater, Ernutet. Another theory maintained that an entrance to inner Ceres was visible near its south pole.

Whatever the truth might be, one thing is certain: people are fascinated with this tiny rocky body and the possibility that it once housed alien life forms. And who knows, maybe they’re still there but we just can’t see them.

Do These Jumbo Footprints Prove Giants Stepped On Ancient China?

Last year, a team of photographers discovered a set of fossilized giant footprints in a village in SW China. They still defy all explanations.


The strange discovery was made on August 24, 2016 in Pingyan, a small village in southwest China. The mysterious giant footprints show signs that they are the real deal and not some artistic carving.

The erosion of the rock in which the footprints are embedded suggests an age of several thousand years, possibly more.

Many people are convinced that in ancient times, a race of giant humans roamed the land and this belief is supported by multiple archaeological finds, several fossilized remains such as giant femur bones and skulls and enormous weapons that couldn’t possibly have belonged to regular-sized humans.

On top of those, the prevalence of legends describing the ancient giants and their impossible feats in the mythology of so many cultures offer further backing to the hypothesis that giants once roamed the land.

The giant footprints discovered in China measure a staggering 22.5 inches (57 centimeters) in length and are 8 inches (20 centimeters) wide. Each of the footprints is embedded at a depth of 1.2 inches (3 centimeters) which suggests that the humanoid who left them must have been an impressive specimen. Estimates place his height at approximately 16.5 feet, or around 5 meters.

Can you imagine how that giant must have towered above the typical humans it shared its environment with? Would anyone have dared to oppose him?

ancient giant footprint china

Unfortunately, not a lot of details regarding this particular find exist, save for several photos that boggle the mind.

Similar findings have been made on almost all corners of the globe and while some have been discredited as fakes, a large number remains and their implications continue to baffle the scientific world.

Last month, the internet went wild with speculation about the existence of ancient giants when a set of equally-humongous footprints were photographed at the ruins of the Ain Dara temple in Syria. The photographs once again brought into discussion the idea that long ago, beings known as the Nephilim roamed the land.

When it comes to ancient giants, the scientific world is in denial. Afraid of being ridiculed, anthropologists and archaeologists refuse to acknowledge the evidence, even when it’s right under their noses. When such discoveries are made, those with hidden agendas quickly swoop in, collect the relics and proceed to suppress the information. With the media in their pockets and the authorities on their payroll, you can be sure that less than 1% of the truly valuable findings ever make it to the public scene.

Because of this, people with a natural curiosity, a penchant for the unexplained and a tendency to believe the Earth’s history is different from what we learned in school are met with scorn and sarcasm. The sheeple prevail because they are many and have been spoon-fed a cold broth made of lies and trickery. Believe me, I speak from experience.

Take a look at the video below. You won’t understand a thing because it’s in Romanian but allow me to break it down. This old farmer talks about excavations that took place in the 1950s in the village of Mihailesti in Romania. As a young man, he needed money so he joined the workforce at an archaeological site in his village.

Archaeologists were looking for artifacts from a previously unknown ancient culture and while they were at it, the diggers accidentally stumbled upon the final resting place of a number of giant humanoids. The digging was immediately halted and authorities from Bucharest, the capital of Romania were quickly called in. By the end of the week and with the utmost secrecy, the fossilized remains of ancient giants, multiple skulls included were taken away in covered flatbed trucks.

Those who participated were warned against disclosing what they witnessed, the penalty for spilling the beans being imprisonment. Prisons in communist Romania were notoriously inhumane so you can be sure the diggers kept quiet. After the communist regime fell in 1989, those who were still alive finally mustered the courage to speak up.

When I first saw this interview, I felt that I needed to speak with this old man so I drove to Mihailesti in search of him and his stories of ancient giants. When I got there, locals directed me to an old, modest house where they told me old man Vasile still lived.

In good cheer, Vasile invited me in and over a cup of plum brandy, we exchanged stories. He told me that he never wanted any publicity and that became apparent from his general demeanor. He was a simple man in his 80s, living alone in what was basically a brick hut with no running water or central heating. A farmer for most of his life, he had no desire to spread lies. He swore on everything he kept dearly that the skulls they unearthed 6 decades ago were at least twice the size of regular ones.

He also told me that one day, shortly after the video below made it to the evening news, two men in black suits parked their nondescript car in front of his humble abode and started asking questions. They presented no ID. They simply told him they worked for the government. After the formal interview ended, they told Vasile he talked too much and that being a blabbermouth would get him in trouble.

Vasile told me he couldn’t care less. He was an old man, he felt that he had lived long enough. He had no children and his wife had died in 1999. “Let them come for me, I’ll welcome them like I did with you,” he told me laughing. “I’ve had my full of The Man and his plans.”

I left late that night with an unshakeable feeling that I really knew nothing about our world’s past.

This happened some years before I started writing about aliens, UFOs and forbidden history but it was one of the experiences that set me on this path.

Last year, after I started UFOholic, I went back to Mihailesti in search of Vasile and the chance to get an exclusive interview. His brick home was empty and overrun with vegetation. The neighbors told me he had passed away that spring at the ripe old age of 85. I never found out whether it was natural or the work of the men in black.

ancient-giants-jidovi
Vasile’s old house in 2016

 

On the way back, I wondered what else he might have known and how much he actually chose to keep to himself. I was sure the man had seen and touched actual giant remains. Jidovi, the villagers called them and local folklore is rife with stories of their feats of strength.

As I’m writing this, I am curious about what the Jidovi would think of my efforts to uncover their true identity. Would they be pleased or would my head fall to where my feet currently are?

 

RIP Vasile

Want To Crowdfund The World’s First Satellite For UFO Research?

Well, too bad, you can’t. It’s already been funded! Just joking, they still need your money.


There are a lot of aspects of our society where power needs to be given to the people. As a group with the same interests, we should be given the chance to acquire our own information when the powers that be fail to do so. The study of aliens and UFOs is one of the best examples of information being withheld from those who would benefit most.

Since the world governments aren’t too keen on sharing the technology they reverse-engineered from captured UFOs, we stand to win a lot by taking matters into our own hands. This is the exact principle behind the creation of the CubeSat for Disclosure, the world’s first satellite for UFO research. *Ahem* that we know of.

I don’t know how this project managed to slip under our radars but what’s done is done.

At the beginning of 2016, a team of engineers and UFO researchers launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund the creation and launch of a small satellite into low Earth orbit. The Kickstarter reached its goal of raising $10,000 but since the projected cost would be nearly $50,000, the team also started an IndieGoGo campaign which brought them an additional $16,000.

cubesat for disclosure
Will this tiny gizmo show us what NASA won’t?

The CubeSat for Disclosure only has one mission but it is of critical importance to all of us: to look for signs of the presence of UFOs. So what determined the team to come up with this idea?

The fact that we’ve been lied to and shamelessly deceived for the past 7 decades:

For the past 70 years, the topic of extraterrestrial intelligent beings and UFO’s has been controversial, if not ridiculed,” the project description reads. “Despite many sightings and events, government, military and media have made a strong attempt to discredit the idea of extraterrestrial “aliens”.

And in the face of their apparent “disbelief” of the topic, the same military and governments have spent huge amounts of money secretly studying these “ridiculous” UFO’s and aliens.”

Ain’t that the truth… So how exactly will this CubeSat support our effort to uncover the truth?

First of all, it will be equipped to detect ionizing radiation. It is a well-known fact that most UFOs create strong electromagnetic fields so whenever one is around compasses and watches stop working, car engines malfunction and most electronic devices become bricks. Have you ever tried filming a UFO from up close? Yeah, that won’t work.

The UFO-hunting satellite will also carry two cameras with parabolic lenses, enabling it to scope its surroundings in 360º view. The cameras will also be using infrared sensors so they can detect changes in temperature, another trademark of UFO presence. If an object suddenly started emitting unusual amounts of radiation, the CubeSat will pick it up.

By the team’s own admission, their intentions are pure.

“We are interested in the BIG questions. Simply put, we are individuals, not tied to any government or corporation, who would like to have the unfiltered truth of what happens; what is happening, in the new frontier of space.”

A lot of rip-offs were carried out through crowdfunding platforms. Scammers used people’s fears, needs and dreams to fulfill their own agendas and make off with suitcases full of money. The Laser Razor, the Zano baby drone and the CrystalWash 2.0 laundry ball are only a few of them. Perhaps the CubeSat for Disclosure will go down in history as another crowdfunding scam but should it succeed in delivering what it promises, the whole world stands to win.

Its triumph could pave the way for other, more complex projects with serious funding, helping us make it on our own in a time when the rulers made it their mission to stop us from doing so.

The launch is scheduled to take place this summer so if the team behind the first citizen funded UFO hunting satellite actually manages to pull it off, we’ll let you know.

Strange Lights Over Korea Are Causing A Big Scare – Should We Be Worried?

The appearance of strange lights on the Korean night sky has sparked fears of upcoming troubles. Are UFOs watching?


Over the past week or so, the peaceful night sky over the port city of Busan, South Korea  has seen some strange occurrences. Thousands of residents witnessed the exotic flashes of yellow columns of light and until now, a satisfying explanation has yet to surface.

The strange incidents have given rise to controversy, with some blaming UFOs for the unexplained illumination. Others believe the source of the lights is earthly, but not natural.

For three nights in a row, residents of the busy port of Busan have kept their eyes glued to the sky. Some admire the spectacle, while others recoil in fear at the prospect of witnessing some sort of prophetic apparitions.

Many have come to believe the weird lights are caused by UFOs and they believe the otherworldly visitors are expressing their interest in the escalating tensions between North and South Korea. There are UFO researchers who believe the increased alien presence is a clear indicator of things to come and their predictions sound anything but reassuring.

A different subset of UFO researchers suspect the strange lights are the aliens themselves, ethereal beings that have become so advanced they don’t even require transport ships to get here. Instead, the celestial and intangible nature of these beings made of energy allows them to travel between dimensions whenever they please.

Others suspect the origin of the light columns in the sky lies halfway around the world, buried deep under the Franco-Swiss border. We are talking about CERN, of course and their infamous Large Hadron Collider. The largest and most powerful machine of its kind, the LHC accelerates subatomic particles to nearly the speed of light before subjecting them to head-on collisions.

These highly-energetic experiments allow scientists to peak into the smallest, most profound aspects of particle physics but many fear they could also wreak havoc on our planet. Ever since researchers turned on the LHC there have been rumors about the accidental creation of a miniature black hole that could swallow our planet from the inside. Other conspiracy theorists have went as far as claiming such an accident could rip apart the very fabric of our universe, turning existence into non-existence.

strange lights korea

The same people are now saying the strange lights over Busan are a direct consequence of CERN scientists playing God.

A more ‘rational’ group have attempted to resolve this enigma by claiming the lights are the result of squid fishing boats. They say the boat lights are reflected by ice crystals in the sky but this theory quickly becomes invalid when you compare the lights below to the ones above.

While the boats all sway in different directions and so do the lights they are equipped with, the ones in the sky move in unison, as if they were coordinated by someone or something. The saying as above, so below has no application in this particular case.

Whatever the explanation for these strange lights might be, one thing is certain: the locals are anxious for an explanation and despite the increasing number of calls to local authorities, a satisfying answer has yet to arrive.

Giant Floating Alien Entity Takes The World By Surprise

An extremely unusual apparition has left Zambian people in a state of shock and disbelief.


The gigantic humanoid was spotted floating menacingly over a shopping mall in Kitwe, Zambia’s largest city. With a population of over half a million, you can be sure the strange alien being was witnessed by many pairs of eyes.

Panic immediately ensued, with hundreds of locals running away in fear. Others were more spiritually-inclined so they immediately started worshipping the alien entity as if it were an act of God.

floating alien entity

Estimates place the size of the apparition at around 330 feet (100 meters) in length and it remained visible for over half an hour. The black shape appears darker and denser than the surrounding clouds, which leads us to believe this was not a freaky but natural event.

We were shocked to see images that looked like a human in the clouds for close to 30 minutes,” one witness told local press. “Some started worshiping but others ran away. It was so strange.”

A simple analysis of the images reveals one thing: the similarity between the ethereal alien entity and humans or the humanoid form is uncanny, therefore not accidental. Whoever or whatever is responsible for the cloudy phantasm wanted to send a message. This theory is supported by the fact that the floating humanoid appeared to be looking down, meaning his attention was focused on the humans below.

alien entity

Some viewers were quick to point out the scary figure was eerily reminiscent of the Dementors from the Harry Potter universe but that’s just a connection made by cinephiles and not an actual explanation for the weird event. In reality, this ghostly figure could be the result of something much darker and with grave implications:

Project Blue Beam.

One of the most popular conspiracy theories out there states that the New World Order has been secretly developing holographic technology so advanced it could dupe the entire planet into believing world-changing events are happening. Drawing on the general populace’s greatest fears, Project Blue Beam would seek to disseminate concern, panic and eventually terror by projecting holograms into the sky.

An enormous space show taking place in all corners of the globe would create the illusion that the end times are near, making humanity vulnerable and susceptible to being conquered. As prophetic visions of the world’s religions fill the sky, mayhem would take over major cities. Attacks that are carefully simulated and orchestrated would elevate panic levels to unprecedented levels, paving the way for the so-called New Messiah.

At the cost of everyone’s freedom, this impostor would establish worldwide peace. But since everything would have been nothing but a simulation, said peace would be an empty prize for a fake contest.

Project Blue Beam makes for one heinous scenario and it’s no wonder people shudder at the mere thought of something like that happening. If these photos are proof the gears of Project Blue Beam are already in motion, well… that’s really bad news.

On the other hand, the photos could be fake or the result of some kind of publicity stunt, so don’t go running for the hills. Not yet.

These Ancient Lifeforms Trapped In A Crystal Cave Will Change The Definition of LIFE

Hidden in one of the strangest, most beautiful places on Earth lies an organism that will change our perception of living things.


The Cave of the Crystals in Naica, Mexico is a unique place and one of the most majestic cave systems in the world. It is home to some of the largest natural crystals ever found on Earth, arranged in a spectacular display that seems out of this world.

And a recent discovery shows that it is home to something even more sensational, an ancient organism that is found nowhere else. The strange life form has the potential to turn the scientific world on its head and completely rewrite the way we understand and classify living things.

Located at a depth of 980 feet below surface, the Giant Crystal cave was discovered in 2000 by miners excavating a tunnel under the Naica silver mines. They were stunned to discover giant selenite crystals, the largest of them measuring 39 feet in length and weighing 55 tons.

As dazzled as they were by nature’s huge crystal shop, the miners could only stay down there for 10 minutes at a time. The air temperature never falls below 136 ºF (58º Celsius) while the humidity varies between 90 and 99 percent. Due to these harsh conditions, the cave has remained a tantalizing prospect for explorers, one that remains inaccessible without proper protection.

These extreme conditions are also what makes the cave system a place of great interest for scientists who study extremophiles, microscopic organisms that thrive in brutal conditions seen as unsuitable for life.

Recently, NASA scientists managed to single out a group of dormant extremophiles trapped inside the giant crystals. The scientists estimate the microbes could be anywhere between 10,000 and 50,000 years old, making them an ancient, once thriving colony.

Even though the microbes have been dormant for millennia, they are very much alive.

These organisms have been dormant but viable for geologically significant periods of time, and they can be released due to other geological processes.”

Despite the fact that no light has ever penetrated the depths of the crystal cave, the microbes seem to be doing just fine. They rely on a process called chemosynthesis to obtain their daily bread from what metals are present in the crystals.

naica crystal cave

Leading the team that made the discovery was the Director of NASA’s Astrobiology Institute in Moffett Field, CA, Dr. Penelope Boston. She revealed their findings at this year’s meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science:

“Other people have made longer-term claims for the antiquity of organisms that were still alive, but in this case these organisms are all very extraordinary – they are not very closely related to anything in the known genetic databases,” Dr. Boston said.

This discovery proves there is a much greater diversity for life than previously thought and it could cause scientists to rethink the way biology works. It could also extend the meaning of “alive” to other, previously sterile areas.

47 Bars From The Mystical Ore of Atlantis Uncovered

Dozens of ingots of orichalcum, the alloy that is said to have originated in Atlantis were recently recovered from an ancient shipwreck. Will they lead us anywhere?


2,600 years ago, a trading ship sank in the Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of Sicily. Among its cargo were several dozens of orichalcum alloy ingots, the fabled metal that was said to adorn the walls of Atlantis.

Although the legend of the lost continent of Atlantis is much older than the age of the ship, many feel there is a strong possibility that this discovery could shed some light on the age-old mystery.

In 2015, archaeologists diving off the coast of Sicily managed to recover 39 ingots of a strange alloy containing zinc, copper and charcoal and they believe the mysterious metal could be the mystical metal favored by the ancient Atlanteans.

The shipwreck was discovered approximately 1,000 feet off the coast of the Sicilian city of Gela, submerged in less than 10 feet of water. This has led archaeologists to believe it sank during a storm while blindly searching for the nearby port.

Recently, the researchers added another 47 orichalcum ingots to the collection and in all likelihood, there is more to come.

Before this discovery, researchers had little information about orichalcum as the alloy had never been found in substantial quantities. And to make the mystery even more complex, many historians fail to agree on what the legendary alloy really was.

British researcher Joseph Needham notes that in the ancient world, there were two types of orichalcum, one being the imitation of the other. He believes the recipe for Atlantis orichalcum had been lost through time and that the alloy known in Ancient Greece as orichalcum was an inferior replica.

In the dialogue Critias, the ancient Greek philosopher Plato describes orichalcum as a precious metal, second only to gold in terms of monetary value. It comes as a surprise when we learn that the stuff was excessively used in Atlantis. According to Plato, the Temple of Poseidon in Atlantis had interiors and floors made of the precious stuff and in its center stood a grand orichalcum pillar inscribed with the sea god’s laws.

Even more opulence was visible on the outside, as the entire outer wall that encompassed the citadel of Atlantis “flashed with the red light of orichalcum.”

The name orichalcum comes from the Greek oreikhalkos, meaning “mountain copper.” Plato maintained that the metals that went into the composition of this alloy were extensively found and mined on the lost continent of Atlantis.

Another historical mention of this enigmatic substance comes from Flavius Josephus’ Antiquities of the Jews, where he claimed the vessels in Solomon’s Temple were made from orichalcum or a bronze similar to gold.

The prospect of an archeological find leading us to a mythical sunken continent is tantalizing and that is why discoveries such as this one fan the flames of our imaginations. Perhaps we will never find the ruins of Atlantis and the fabled land is destined to remain forever lost.

But in the event that it is one day discovered, it will go a long way towards proving that our knowledge of Earth’s history is limited, distorted or severely lacking. After all, the ancient city of Troy was also considered a myth until excavations in the 19th century proved it was real.

This Man Spent $50,000 To Become A Genderless Alien

While we’re looking for extraterrestrials in outer space, a man from California is well on his way to becoming a genderless alien. Oh, the times we are living in!


22 year-old Vinny Ohh from Los Angeles, CA has had over 100 surgical procedures in his quest to become an alien with no sex organs. It all started with a lip filler when he was 17.

Since then, Vinny has had two rhinoplasties at age 19 and 21 to make his nose narrower and more alien-looking. Other procedures included cheek and brow bone implants, all done as an effort to distance himself from the human form.

“I want to be a sexless alien being,” Vinny Ohh told the world. “I want my outside to reflect how I feel on the inside. The overall image I want to do is an alien. I want to be a hybrid, not male or female.”

genderless alien 2

To complete the alien image, Vinny also wears dark contact lenses that completely cover his eyes. His unusual nails and wacky hairstyles also help.

Working as a part-time model, he became an LGBT+ activist and he says his mission is to help people break out of gender conformism and just be themselves, whatever self that might be.

“Over the years, I’ve realized I’m not gay, bi, trans or any of these things, I just want to be me. I do it to inspire the world in a certain way, I want people to stop labelling others or putting them in boxes.”

Despite undergoing over 110 surgical procedures, Vinny is still a long way from achieving his dream. At the moment, he still has male sex organs but that’s going to change soon. He plans on spending another $160,000 to get rid of his nipples, bellybutton and genitalia.

As you would expect, Vinny’s appearance and future plans have elicited strong reactions from the community. While some support him in his effort to become a genderless alien, others favor abusive language and insults and there were even attempts to physically harm him.

I don’t look real and people love it. Some people have said they want their kids to be like me and that I’m an inspiration for children who don’t feel like they belong.”

Naturally, the media wants to capitalize on Vinny’s weird life so he was invited to appear on The Plastics of Hollywood, a show that will bring together plastic surgery addicts in an attempt to… whatever, the show’s going to be crazy.

genderless alien 3

Look, I’m all for sexual or asexual expression but it feels like we’re going too far and giving this issue too much importance. In times like these, when the world seems to be on a tipping point and there are pressing issues that need to be dealt with, we get so easily distracted by trivial matters while ignoring problems that will undoubtedly change our lives for the worse.

The world economy is failing, AI will make the rich even richer and the poor even poorer, the illusion of a free world is slowly dissolving but, hey, everybody, look at me, I want to turn myself into a strawberry ice cream with both a penis and a vagina! 🙂
