Russia: Vast diamond field containing ‘trillions of carats’ discovered

September 18, 2012 – Russia has just declassified news that will shake world gem markets to their core: the ,” enoudiscovery of a vast new diamond field containing “trillions of carats” enough to supply global markets for another 3,000 years. The Soviets discovered the bonanza back in the 1970s beneath a 35-million-year-old, 62-mile diameter asteroid crater in eastern Siberia known as Popigai Astroblem.
They decided to keep it secret, and not to exploit it, apparently because the USSR’s huge diamond operations at Mirny, in Yakutia, were already producing immense profits in what was then a tightly controlled world market.

The Soviets were also producing a range of artificial diamonds for industry, into which they had invested heavily.
The veil of secrecy was finally lifted over the weekend, and Moscow permitted scientists from the nearby Novosibirsk Institute of Geology and Mineralogy to talk about it with Russian journalists.
According to the official news agency, ITAR-Tass, the diamonds at Popigai are “twice as hard” as the usual gemstones, making them ideal for industrial and scientific uses.
The institute’s director, Nikolai Pokhilenko, told the agency that news of what’s in the new field could be enough to “overturn” global diamond markets.
“The resources of super-hard diamonds contained in rocks of the Popigai crypto-explosion structure, are by a factor of ten bigger than the world’s all known reserves,” Mr. Pokhilenko said. “We are speaking about trillions of carats. By comparison, present-day known reserves in Yakutia are estimated at one billion carats.”
The type of stones at Popigai are known as “impact diamonds,” which theoretically result when something like a meteor plows into a graphite deposit at high velocity. The Russians say most such diamonds found in the past have  been “space diamonds” of extraterrestrial origin found in meteor craters.

Photos show evidence of life on Mars, entomologist says …

Ohio University Emeritus Professor William Romoser analyzed a number of photos from various Mars rovers and found insect-like and reptile-like forms in the images, appearing to verify that life exists on Mars.

As scientists scramble to determine whether there is life on Mars, Ohio University Professor Emeritus William Romoser’s research shows that we already have the evidence, courtesy of photographs from various Mars rovers.

Dr. Romoser, who specializes in arbovirology and general/medical entomology, has spent several years studying photographs from the red planet that are available on the Internet. He found numerous examples of insect-like forms, structured similarly to bees, as well as reptile-like forms, both as fossils and living creatures. He presented his findings Tuesday, Nov. 19, at the national meeting of the Entomological Society of America in St. Louis, Missouri.

Romoser said, noting that the images appear to show both fossilized and living creatures:

There has been and still is life on Mars. There is apparent diversity among the Martian insect-like fauna which display many features similar to Terran insects that are interpreted as advanced groups – for example, the presence of wings, wing flexion, agile gliding/flight, and variously structured leg elements.

Romoser said that while the Martian rovers, particularly the Curiosity Rover, have been looking for indicators of organic activity, there are a number of photos which clearly depict the insect- and reptile-like forms. Numerous photos show images where arthropod body segments, along with legs, antennae and wings, can be picked out from the surrounding area, and one even appears to show one of the insects in a steep dive before pulling up just before hitting the ground.

Individual images were carefully studied while varying photographic parameters such as brightness, contrast, saturation, inversion, and so on. No content was added, or removed. Criteria used in Romoser’s research included: Dramatic departure from the surroundings, clarity of form, body symmetry, segmentation of body parts, repeating form, skeletal remains, and observation of forms in close proximity to one another. Particular postures, evidence of motion, flight, apparent interaction as suggested by relative positions, and shiny eyes were taken to be consistent with the presence of living forms.

Distinct flight behavior was evident in many images, Romoser said. These creatures loosely resemble bumble bees or carpenter bees on Earth. Other images show these “bees” appearing to shelter or nest in caves. And others show a fossilized creature that resembles a snake.

Romoser, who was an entomology professor at Ohio University for 45 years and co-founded its Tropical Disease Institute, also spent nearly 20 years as a visiting vector-borne disease researcher at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases. Between 1973 and 1998, Romoser authored and co-authored four editions of the widely-used textbook, “The Science of Entomology.”

Romoser noted that interpretations of insect- and reptile-like creatures he described may change in the future as knowledge of life on Mars evolves, but that the sheer volume of evidence is compelling.

He said:

The presence of higher metazoan organisms on Mars implies the presence of nutrient/energy sources and processes, food chains and webs, and water as elements functioning in a viable, if extreme, ecological setting sufficient to sustain life,” he said. “I have observed instances suggestive of standing water or small water courses with evident meander and with the expected blurring of small submerged rocks, larger emergent rocks at the atmosphere/water interface, a moist bank area, and a drier area beyond the moist area. Water on Mars has been reported a number of times, including surface water detected by instrumentation on Viking, Pathfinder, Phoenix, and Curiosity.

The evidence of life on Mars presented here provides a strong basis for many additional important biological as well as social and political questions,” he added. It also represents a solid justification for further study.

USB Stick of Quisto found with incredible images of Planets, Extraterrestrial Spaceships and Aliens

A German man named Quisto, who lives in a small village near Berlin, Germany, found a USB stick with a strange symbol engraved on it in a parking lot near the so-called “Steintor” shopping center. Later, the man opened the USB key in his laptop and to his surprise, he saw many old 20th century images of what appeared to be planets, space, extraterrestrial spaceships and even alien figures.

According to Quisto, who has no idea who the owner of the USB key was, he decided to share about 28 images, hoping that someone will have an answer to give for these mysterious and incredible images.

It seems that the incredible images are authentic, but obviously one must keep in mind that it could be a hoax, but according to a friend of Quisto, the stick contains old Voyager probe travel records and the files that are inside the stick, would be Tops Secret and that should not be in the public domain. The witness stated that he never saw anything like this.

NASA launched Voyager 1 on September 5, 1977 and Voyager 2 42 years ago, or August 20, 1977. The probes had to study the most distant planets in the solar system.

Since its launch, Voyager 2 has met several planets, including Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Some of these planets can also be seen on images, such as different types of UFOs, including the infamous Black Knight. There are also photographs of lunar bases and spaceships flying in space near the Moon and planets in the solar system. In some photographs, mysterious unidentified alien figures are visible. Whether true or false, the experts are analyzing all the photographs and for now they cannot see any case of CGI input.

Meteorological Radars record three “Huge Anomalies” in the Texas skies

The images we show you have appeared through the American media, where there was talk about an Alien Invasion. On November 2, 2019, three huge anomalies were recorded in several Texas cities. Ufologists said they were giant mother ship UFOs . The UFOs showed up on the meteorological radar recording mysterious concentric waves with a diameter of a few miles on Texas late at night around 9:45-10:30pm. The UFOs were so large that the radar bounced off on each of them … causing a series of rings around the UFO. Each UFO had six thick refracted rings around it, caused by the radar bouncing of of them. 

Social media, especially Twitter, was lit up by messages from people who tweeted @wfaweatehr that looked like an alien invasion. They were worried about the rings seen over the cities of Waco, Austin and more. Now the WFFA news is trying to convince people in the video that they have the answer to this phenomenon. According to weather experts, not knowing how to justify these anomalies, they said it was a super refraction. But people do not believe in this version, also because there have been hundreds of UFO reports that evening on Saturday 2 November, not surprisingly when these mysterious radar echoes were appearing.

Alien UFOs do sometimes get caught in weather radar maps. This is 100% proof that several huge UFOs were over Texas this week “They are large enough to cover an entire county. UFO motherships must have remained in place for up to 15 minutes … allowing them to be seen on the radar. I believe they came from the Gulf of Mexico from an alien submarine base. I also believe they were testing their cloaking devices against our human technology to see if they would be noticed … and yes, our technology is reaching them fast. Doppler radar makes larger ships visible. Where did they go then? Probably straight and out of our atmosphere” Said Scott Waring.
