New version of the “Titanic” sinking: the ship was destroyed by a solar storm

New version of the "Titanic" sinking: the ship was destroyed by a solar storm 86

The flare on the Sun caused a geomagnetic disturbance that could affect the operation of navigation instruments and led to a fatal change in the course of the liner.

For more than 100 years of studying the most famous maritime disaster in the history of mankind, researchers have come to the conclusion that the sinking of the Titanic is the so-called “perfect shipwreck”. That is, an event that happened as a result of the confluence of as many fatal circumstances that you can think of. Here are just a few of them:

– In January 1912, the Earth and the Moon approached at a record close distance (such an arrangement of celestial bodies has not been observed for the last 1400 years), maximizing the tidal forces of the ocean. As a result, icebergs that broke away from Greenland, which usually ran aground near the island of Newfoundland, were raised by abnormally high tides and anticyclones drove them south to the areas of the transatlantic shipping route. On April 14, one of them was on the way of the Titanic.

“The fateful night was moonless, which drastically reduced visibility. And, most importantly, the lookout did not have binoculars: the key to the safe with binoculars remained with David Blair, the second mate. A few days before going to sea, Blair’s services were refused (they took a more experienced officer) and the sailor, in the confusion, forgot to give the key to the safe to his replacement. As a result, a block of ice was noticed when it was 670 meters away. It is said that shortly before the collision, the iceberg turned over and a dark underwater part protruded above the water, which could not be seen from afar at night.

– The designers claimed: the ship will remain afloat even if 4 bow or stern compartments are flooded (the liner was divided into 16 watertight compartments). Therefore, in the event of a head-on collision with an iceberg, the Titanic would not have died. However, trying to evade, the first mate William Murdoch made an unsuccessful maneuver – the liner got used to the ice block tangentially and the seams between the steel sheets parted for 90 meters. Water poured into the five bow compartments. The designers of the “unsinkable” ship could not have foreseen such a scenario.

“Four hours before the meeting with the iceberg, Titanic radio operator Jack Phillips received a warning about difficult ice conditions from his colleague on the steamer“ Californian ”Cyril Evans. “Californian” was going 50 kilometers ahead of “Titanic” came across a powerful ice field. Cyril Evans transmitted a radiogram on board the Titanic “Ice between 42 ° and 41 ° 25’N and 49 ° 30’W. We saw a large accumulation of broken ice and many large icebergs. There are ice fields too. The weather is good and clear. ” But the radio operators did not give this radio message to the captain. They were busy transmitting private radio messages from passengers.

“10 minutes before the crash, Cyril Evans began transmitting to Jack Phillips a new radiogram. He wanted to report that the Californian was stopped by ice and drifted to avoid a collision. But he began the message with an informal greeting “Hello, old man! …”. Phillips, who thought Evans wanted to chat out of boredom, interrupted him with the words: “Shut up, I’m working!” The Titanic continued to rush forward at a top speed of over 40 kilometers per hour. At 11:30 pm Evans turned off the radio and went to bed. At 23.40, the Titanic hit an icy rock. After another 25 minutes, Phillips sent a distress call. The Californian was the closest ship to the Titanic, it was 32 kilometers away and could come to the rescue within an hour while the liner was still afloat. But Evans was the only person aboard the Californian who knew Morse code. The captain woke him up only at 4.30, when he was once again reported that some ship had been giving incomprehensible signals with light flares all night. Evans went on the air and learned that while he was sleeping, the Titanic sank (it happened at 2.20 am).

But it turns out that the chain of fatal accidents does not end there. Mila Zinkova, an independent weather researcher and programmer, has published an article “The Possible Role of Space Weather in the Titanic Disaster” in the Royal Meteorological Society’s Weather magazine.

“Everyone who studies the circumstances of the sinking of the Titanic is faced with several inexplicable riddles,” Mila Zinkova writes. “In particular, the Titanic radio operators, along with the distress signals, transmitted their coordinates, which indicated a point that was 11 kilometers from the actual crash site of the liner. However, for some reason, not all ships located nearby received this radiogram. The steamer “Karpatia”, which eventually saved the survivors, followed to a false point, but came across the boats with the passengers of the “Titanic”. I think I know how to explain it. The fact is that three passengers of the Titanic and the second mate of the Karpatia, James Bisset, mention in their memoirs that they observed the northern lights that night. This indicates that a solar flare caused a powerful geomagnetic storm,

The aurora comes from the intense bombardment of the upper atmosphere by charged particles from the solar wind. In 1912, this was not given much importance. But today scientists know that powerful electromagnetic disturbances often cause more than just compasses and radio equipment malfunctioning. There are cases when a solar storm turned off military radars, and in 1972 dozens of cases of the explosion of sea magnetic mines were recorded off the coast of Vietnam.

According to Mila Zinkova, solar activity affected the operation of the Titanic’s compass, and the crew had to correct the course, deviating north from the original route. Even if the compass needle moved one degree, it made a huge difference and ultimately led to the meeting of the ship and the iceberg, the author of the study believes. But the same mistake helped “Carpathia” to save the shipwrecked. Having received false coordinates, they came to the right point, because their navigation equipment was exposed to the same effect of charged particles of the solar wind.

Of course, the solar storm is not the main cause of the Titanic crash. However, this hypothesis complements the dramatic picture of what happened and demonstrates what the most unexpected forces and phenomena can provoke an “ideal catastrophe”. For a planet that is today crammed with “securely controlled” nuclear weapons (and other weapons of mass destruction), this is a useful warning.

Was an Angel filmed over a house extinguished by firefighters?

Was an Angel filmed over a house extinguished by firefighters? 95

Having appeared on the network, this photo caused a lot of comments – from the fact that it really was a Guardian Angel who guarded the firefighters during work, to those who assured that all this was just an illusion, no more complicated than a cloud in the shape of a lamb.

At the end of December 2020, while extinguishing a fire in the Polish village of Maldyty, an Angel hovered over the firemen, or at least something like an Angel. This photo appeared on the Facebook page of the Maldyta fire station and generated many comments.

“This is something that was formed during the last extinguishing of the fire from the ignition of soot in the chimney in Maldyty. Write in the comments your thoughts about it,” was written under the picture on their FB page.

Poles are known to be very religious and there are plenty of people willing to comment on the picture.

Many indeed believed that the Angel oversaw the work of the firemen and, perhaps, even helped them to extinguish the fire. But there were also enough of those who believed that it was all just a random silhouette between clouds in the sky and pareidolia (illusion). The photo was taken by an unspecified person sitting in the cab of a car parked next to the burning house.

“Christians have always believed in the existence of guardian spirits. Some call them Guardian Angels. The Bible confirms their existence,” Pastor Leszek Kozheniecki told reporters, commenting on this photo.

By the way, Kozhenetskiy is a well-known Polish pastor who believes in the existence of supernatural beings.

Three years ago, he told the press that he had driven out the evil spirit that settled in his house in Turza Wielka. One of the firefighters who worked on the extinguishing of the house that night said:

“If we have this kind of protection watching over us, I am pretty calm about safety during work.”

Blogger MrMBB333 shared an image of a “mysterious creature.” It was discovered 80 kilometers off the coast of Antarctica in a remote region of Antarctica, according to the Sun.

According to the blogger, the pictures are screenshots from the Google Earth service, which were sent to him by his subscriber and conspiracy theorist under the nickname BONKERS.

They estimate the length of the remains at 3.6-6 meters.I don’t know if it was frozen for thousands of years or appeared recently,- the blogger said.

MrMBB333 believes the skeleton belonged to a dinosaur. He came to this conclusion by examining the front and hind limbs of the creature. His subscribers are sure that these are the remains of a seal.

A google search for seal skeleton images shows a pretty good match,- one of them wrote.

Other subscribers call the skeleton “suspicious”. They explain that “seals have no hind legs.” Another wrote that the remains belonged to an alligator or some other reptile.

In the comments, conspiracy theorists also expressed their opinion that “Antarctica is full of unexplained phenomena that may be related to ancient aliens.”

It is also believed that most of the “discoveries” made by users of Google Earth can be explained by the unusual shape of ice or other natural phenomena.

MrMBB333 uploaded his investigation video to YouTube on January 5. Since then, the video has been watched more than 200,000 times.

150 thousand years old Metal pipes in Tibet, contradict the official history

150 thousand years old Metal pipes in Tibet, contradict the official history 98

It is said that there is a mountain in Tibet that contains a network of special formations that extend to the nearest lake. Many researchers believe that this is an artificial pipeline system. But, strangely enough, its origin dates back to the era of the Neanderthals.

This mountain rises about 40 km from the city of Dalingha in the Tibetan Autonomous Region. It is called Baigongshan (White Mountain). In the world, it is better known for the wonderful formations that are in its heart and wide surroundings – they are called the Baigong pipes.

This miracle has been the subject of controversial discussions for many years. Some believe they are a natural formation, but there are many who are sure that someone built them in the distant past to drain the lake. They base their arguments on research results, but there is a catch; the mysterious aqueduct should have appeared 150 thousand years ago. Traces of settlements around the mountain are not even older than 30 thousand years. So who could build metal pipes inside an uninhabited mountain?

There are three caves at the foot of Mount Baigongshan, two of them have already collapsed and are inaccessible, but the largest of them has since been the target of many tourists who come to the area.

The cave looks like it was artificially created by someone. Visibility is enhanced by a massive pipe about forty centimeters in diameter that sticks out of the stone.

Another apparently hollow pipe of the same diameter ran into the cave from the top of the mountain. Another one came from the bottom of the cave somewhere below.

At the entrance to the cave, you can see several other pipes with a diameter of 10 to 40 cm. All this gives the impression of the remains of some ancient system or mechanism. About 80 meters from the cave, Lake Toson sparkles with a large number of scattered pipes on the beach.

They stretch from east to west and have a diameter of 2 to 4.5 cm, these archaeological finds are described by the Chinese scientist Liu-Shaolin:

The unmistakable rust color indicates that they are made of metal. And their craftsmanship showcases advanced attachment techniques. Who could have built such a complex pipe system? Only one who knew well what he was doing and why.

The version that such an engineering miracle was created by the Chinese disappears immediately. The inhabitants of the Middle Kingdom could not build something like that 150 thousand years ago. As the authors of many amazing inventions, bureaucracy became one of them. Therefore, it is simply impossible to imagine that such a large-scale and, without exaggeration, a great construction project was reflected in any ancient Chinese source. Any emperor, during whose reign this happened, would make sure that his great deed was not forgotten by descendants.

Baigong tubes are another unsolved mystery in human history. This find once again refutes the facts of the official history. Where is the true and where is the misconception? Maybe there will be people among the readers who will logically explain the origin of the ancient aqueduct.
