If mankind does not carry out experiments , then , probably , it would never have got out of the Stone Age. But where there is a distinction between the need to obtain new data, and morality , which is necessary for this data to sacrifice? 

For some researchers, such a face did not exist at all – and their experiments are still considered one of the most terrifying in the history of the world. Others risked only their own lives or boldly stormed the limits of our civilization’s capabilities.

9 most terrifying and daring experiments in history

The Stormfury project  is an extremely unsuccessful attempt to control the weather in the mid-20th century. The prominent chemist Irving Langmuir came to the conclusion that if you shower storm clouds with silver iodide, they will rain in the right place, and not over the crowded cities. In the same way it was supposed to weaken hurricanes. But instead of fading away, the chosen hurricane headed toward the coastal city of Savannah, bringing death and destruction.

Elephant under LSD

Elephant under LSD . In 1962, researchers from Oklahoma City decided to find out how the Tusco elephant living in the zoo would behave if he was injected with a dose of LSD. The elephant received an injection of 297 mg of the drug – 3 thousand times higher than the normal human … and died in less than an hour. After 20 years, the experiment was repeated, giving LSD to two elephants in the water, and they almost did not notice anything. Perhaps Tusco had an excessive sensitivity to the drug, which the experimenters did not deign to find out.

GT cardiac catheterization

Self-catheterization of the heart GT was first performed in 1928 by the German surgeon Werner Forsmann, and on himself. Using local anesthesia, Forsman conducted a probe through the elbow vein to the right atrium, at 65 centimeters. Fortunately, everything went well, and in 1956, Forsman received the Nobel Prize.

Kola superdeep well

The Kola superdeep well , 12,262 meters deep is officially the deepest well in the world, which was drilled from 1970 to 1990 in the Murmansk region. In the course of the experiment, invaluable information was obtained about the deep structure of the planet, the composition of the rocks and the geothermal regime of the ancient earth’s crust. Unfortunately, at the moment the project is abandoned and the objects on it are gradually being destroyed.

The Large Hadron Collider

The LHC, i.e., the Large Hadron Collider, is the world’s largest charged particle accelerator located in an underground complex on the border of Switzerland and France. The length of the ring is about 27 km, the project is served by more than 10 thousand scientists. During its construction and before launch, evil tongues prophesied the end of the world to the planet, because the collider supposedly could generate “miniature black holes”. Of course, the rumors did not materialize.

Starfish Prime

“Starfish Prime”, one of the US projects for the study of nuclear explosions in outer space . On July 9, 1962, at an altitude of 400 km, a nuclear warhead with a capacity of 1.45 megatons was detonated. Under the influence of an electromagnetic pulse in Hawaii, at a distance of 1,500 km from the epicenter, hundreds of electronic units failed, and three satellites collapsed from orbit.

Resurrection of the dead . American scientist Robert Cornish from 1932 to 1948 conducted experiments on the resuscitation of dead creatures. He set his experiments on dogs, previously killing them with an overdose of ether, and successfully brought them back to life by rocking the body on a movable table with a parallel injection of adrenaline and anticoagulants. He also wanted to test his practice in public (exclusively volunteers), but failed.

Mind control . The Spanish professor Jose Delgado in 1963 discovered that if a small device is implanted in the animal’s brain, then it can be used to completely control his movements and even emotions. 

Fortunately, the matter did not reach the people, but the experiments were already rather creepy.

“Trinity”  – that was the name of the world’s first nuclear weapon test , held July 16, 1945 in the state of New Mexico at the Alamogordo training ground. In less than a month, the exact same plutonium bomb will be dropped on Nagasaki, following the uranium bomb for Hiroshima. Nuclear weapons may have prevented World War III, but in and of themselves they brought an enormous number of victims.

Did Angels visit a farm in Slovenia after Jerusalem?

A few days ago, a UFO hovered over the city of Podkoren in Slovenia, the appearance of which was recorded on Google Earth maps. The famous Taiwanese ufologist Scott Waring suggested that it could be an angel, given its bright glow and peculiar shape.

On his YouTube channel, Waring posted a photo of an unidentified object that glowed very brightly. The ufologist examined a number of photographs in the same area at different times and made sure that there was nothing reflecting there, which means that it is quite possible that these were events of biblical significance.

The researcher stressed that the trees are not lit. Consequently, the object is well above them. Given the brightness of the glow, it is likely that we are talking not only about UFOs, but also about angels that can visit people living in this area.

He recalled that similar objects were recorded in Jerusalem above a stone dome. The Bible tells a similar story. The author emphasized that he is not a religious person, and the conducted research only confirms his theory.

Halloween 2020 is expected to have a full moon that hasn’t been seen since World War II

Astronomers claim that the full moon on October 31 will be visible throughout the world with the exception of parts of Australia.

In 2020, the world’s population is waiting for a very unusual phenomenon that will be seen in almost all corners of the planet as reported by Cnet.

According to experts, this year on Halloween (October 31), the full moon will rise and will be visible to the whole world. Such an event will happen for the first time since the Second World War.

Astronomy expert Geoffrey Hunt says the last full moon seen on the entire planet occurred in 1944. He notes that there was also a full moon on Halloween in 1955, but was not visible to residents of western North America and the western Pacific.

In the same year, residents of North and South America, India, all of Europe and most of Asia will see the full moon for the holiday. Also, the full moon will be visible in Western Australia, but not in the central and eastern parts of the country.

Scientists remind that in its full phase the moon will be visible to the naked eye, but for high-quality images, you still have to use additional equipment.

“Photos of the moon with a smartphone are likely to be substandard. A telephoto lens will help you capture the moon in all its glory. Adjust the camera brightness so details are visible and not drowned out by the brightness of the moon,” Hunt says.

He also emphasizes that the next full moon, which will be visible from all corners of the planet, will not happen soon – in 2039.

“Of course, in the coming years, the full moon will be in October, but not on Halloween,” the expert notes.

A full moon on Halloween is a rare coincidence. We will be able to enjoy it very soon.

A tourist found a thousand-legged creepy beast washed up on the coast of Wales

A traveler walked along the coast of the Irish Sea in Wales and found a creature similar to the mythical Cthulhu – with a thousand tentacles and a keen interest in people.

The man was preparing to call the ufologists, but the Internet suggested: you need not be afraid, but rejoice, because the monster costs a fortune. The sea world still remains largely unknown for the inhabitants of the land, and in fact there is a lot of interesting things in it: from an iguana that looks like a real Godzilla to real mutants. True, according to The Sun, the underwater kingdom still has something to surprise people with.

A tourist named Martin Green was vacationing with his family in North Wales on the coast of the Irish Sea and one evening decided to walk with his son along the water. The man was walking slowly along the shore when he saw an unusual creature on the sand. At first, Green decided that he saw a large snag from a fallen tree, then, approaching it, he thought that it was a piece of a large fin that washed ashore, but here Martin was not right. When the travelers approached the find, they felt uneasy – a large and living creature with thousands of tentacles looked at them.

Looking closely, the man saw that the find consists of many white many-legged shells. Perhaps at first Martin was ready to call Scully and Mulder, but the internet helped him figure out what was going on. Green’s son uploaded a photo of the unknown creature to Google and realized that he and his father were very lucky. It turned out that the creepy sea creatures are the so-called Gooseneck Barnacles, crustaceans. They live by attaching themselves to hard surfaces, usually rocks.

Martin and his son were lucky not only because they personally saw unusual creatures, but also because the find could enrich a family. In Portugal and Spain, shells are considered a delicacy and are sold for £ 25 apiece. Considering that, according to the family’s estimates, there were about two thousand shells on the snag found on the snag, the potential cost of the find is about 50 thousand pounds. Green did not elaborate on how he was going to deal with the shells – send them back to the ocean or sell them to Spain.
