Top 10 Mysteries of Outer Space

Since the beginning of life, man has looked to the stars with a sense of wonder. Between then and now, many advances have been made in the fields of astronomy, mathematics, and physics in an attempt to explain the things we see above, yet the more we believe we understand, the less we really seem to know. In something as big as the universe, there are bound to be unexplainable phenomena, and things we truly can’t grasp. The universe shows us how small we really are, and in a place so big, is it really plausible to believe that we are alone? And is there any reason someone might not want us to know? This is a list of what I believe to be some of the best mysteries and conspiracy theories of outer space.

Simulacrum in Eagle Nebula

Hubble J

One of the strangest photos that has ever been taken of space is that of the Eagle Nebula. The photo itself is supposed to show the birth of a star from the gaseous clouds. However, when the photo was shown on CNN, hundreds of calls came in from people reporting they could see a face in the cloud. When the color of the photo was adjusted, a large human form seemed to appear within the cloud. Scientist have not been able to explain this phenomena (though listverse very possible has on this list – see item 1). You can read more about it here.

Where did galaxies come from?

Galaxy-1

Science has only recently been able to explain where the stars and planets came from. Now, scientists have turned their attention to a much bigger mystery, where did galaxies come from? What is known is that galaxies are not scattered randomly throughout space, rather they are found in clusters, known as “super clusters”. Scientists have two main theories to attempt to explain galaxy formation. First, the gas left over from the big bang clustered together to form galaxies, in which stars and planets were born. Second is that gas from the big bang created stars and planets all over the universe, and they migrated through gravity into galaxies. Neither theory has been universally accepted yet.

090421-Most-Earthlike-Planet Big

Our star, the sun, is just one of trillions in the universe. When you look at the fact that our star has eight planets, and do the math, it tells you that it is possible for there to be eight times as many planets in the universe than stars; an astounding figure. Is it not possible that just one of those planets might have life on it? It is a fact that, since the year 2000, hundreds of extra solar planets have been discovered orbiting distant stars. Some of these have found to be earth- like, such as the planet Gliese 581d, a planet believed to have liquid water on its surface. Could it possibly contain life? Hopefully with advances in technology in the next decade, we will soon know the answer. Till then, it remains one of space’s greatest mysteries.

Are there Other Universes?

Space Fiction Close Comet 1 - 1024X768

This is one of the more controversial arguments out there. The theory is that there are an infinite number of universes, each which is governed by its own set of laws and physics. Many scientists dismiss this argument as nothing more than speculation, as there is no evidence or mathematical law that allows for the existence of other universes. However, believers in this theory have argued that there are none that disprove it either. This is one mystery which can only be solved if we were able to travel there, however, with the expansion of the universe, it is unlikely humanity will ever find the answer.

Darkmattermap

Albert Einstein’s equation E = MC^2 is perhaps the best known equation of the century. However when applied to space, an anomaly occurs. When we use it to determine how much matter the universe should have, we realize that we have only found four percent of the matter in the universe! Where is the rest of it? Many believe it is in the form of dark matter. Where is this dark matter? It’s everywhere,  wherever there is no visible matter. Scientists have yet to show any conclusive proof that dark matter does in fact exist. The fact that you can’t see it, touch it, and light and radio waves pass right through it undeterred makes it extremely hard to detect.

Mars/Earth Connection

Face-On-Mars-1976

When talking about life on other planets, some say we need go no further than our own solar system. Mars has always been thought to harbor life by many conspiracy theorists, saying that NASA is covering it up. Many photos have also called into question civilization on Mars, such as the face on Mars, Pyramids on Mars, and photo of what appears to be an ape like figure sitting on a rock on Mars. While scientists have come out to debunk these photos, they have also admitted that they believe liquid oceans once covered the surface of Mars before its magnetic field disappeared. Is it possible that life did indeed once exist? The current missions to Mars hopes to answer this question.

UFO sightings by NASA Astronauts

Ufo

NASA Astronauts are some of the most highly trained and specialized people in the world. Often they are expert scientists that can explain almost anything. So when they see something they can’t explain, you can bet it is going to raise eyebrows. One of the most famous incidents occurred on a live broadcast on NBC in 1963. Major Gordon Cooper was at the end of his 22 orbit solo journey around the earth when he said that out of one of his windows he could see a glowing green object fast approaching. The object then made a sharp turn and shot away. He was sure he was not seeing things, as the radar in his spacecraft picked up the object as well. Upon his return to earth interviewers wanted to ask him about the object, however NASA officials would not allow it. You can read about this and other Astronaut sightings at this web site.

“White” Holes

251

One of Albert Einstein’s greatest accomplishments was the proving, though mathematics, the existence of black holes. From the advances in technology, we now have been able to find several black holes, and believe one to be at the center of our very own Milky Way galaxy. What is astonishing, however, is what Einstein also proved through his equations;  white holes also exist. The exact opposite of black holes, white holes are believed to “spit out” an incredible amount of matter from seemingly nothing. Such an object should  be easy to find, yet none have been. If one was found, it may help us explain other unknown mysteries, such as where the material that made the galaxies came from.

2

Ruins on Moon

Moon-Ruins1

In this list we have discussed the possibility of life on distant planets, and in near planets. But could it possibly at one time have been as close as the moon? This conspiracy theory states that there are indeed ancient ruins and buildings on the moon, but the government has been censoring them from the public. This theory had no backing until two recent breakthroughs. A man who claims to have worked for the government censoring moon photos came forward with several, explaining how the censorship was done and that indeed there were structures on the moon. More recently, scientist announced they believe they have discovered water, possibly in ice or liquid form, under the surface of the moon. For conspiracy theorists, this was all the proof they needed, while critics dismiss it as “ridiculous speculation”. You can read more about this, and watch a fascinating video, here.

Dark Energy

Darkmatterpie

Dark energy is the greatest mystery in the universe today, because of the fact that it is believed to be all around us, and it explains why there seems to be anomalies within the law of gravity. By the law of gravity, large objects, like galaxy clusters, should attract each other, and their gravitational pull should pull in other objects. This however, is not the case, and the fact is most galaxy clusters are moving farther apart. This is due to the fact that the universe is expanding at an incredible rate. To answer the question of why this is, scientists developed the theory of Dark Energy, which has the opposite effect as gravity, pushing things apart. Mathematical calculations have shown that if it exists, it makes up 74% of our universe, outweighing gravity, and this is why the universe is stretching out. However we still have no conclusive proof, so it remains a mystery to us.

Brazilian president visits mudslide areas as death toll continues to rise

Posted by Admin on January 17, 2011

Rescuers have yet to reach some of the worst-hit areas • Rousseff says illegal occupation of steep hillsides cost lives

More than 500 people are known to have died in Brazil after torrential rains sent avalanches of mud and debris smashing on to towns in a mountainous area outside Rio de Janeiro.

The official death toll has reached 527 in what is being described as one of the country’s worst natural disasters, and rescuers have yet to reach some of the worst-hit areas – including one neighbourhood where 150 houses were reportedly swept away. The toll seems certain to rise considerably.

Nearly all of those killed were buried alive when avalanches of mud and debris fell on to their homes in the Serrana region in the early hours of Wednesday. At least 13,000 people have been left homeless.

It is an immediate crisis for Brazil’s president, Dilma Rousseff, who took over from Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva a fortnight ago. After a brief visit to the affected region yesterday, Rousseff called the disaster an act of God, but said the tragedy could not be blamed on nature alone.

“We saw areas in which mountains untouched by men dissolved. But we also saw areas in which illegal occupation caused damage to the health and lives of people,” she said.

Many of the destroyed homes had been built precariously on steep hillsides, and Rousseff said housing in areas of risk was the rule rather than the exception in Brazil. “When there aren’t housing policies, where are people who earn no more than twice the minimum wage going to live?” she said.

Teresópolis, a bucolic tourist town 60 miles north of Rio, was one of the hardest-hit areas: by last night at least 200 deaths had been confirmed. Local authorities were preparing to erect floodlights in the cemetery in order to hold round-the-clock burials. The town’s streets filled with pick-up trucks packed with fleeing residents, carrying mattresses and pets.

In Campo Grande, a shanty town on the outskirts of Teresópolis that was almost completely enveloped by falling rubble and mud, residents said as many as 300 bodies had been buried after a dam burst, triggering a landslide that consumed nearly everything in its path, tossing pick-up trucks into sitting rooms and a delivery truck into a tree.

“It’s ugly, really ugly,” said Vicente Luiz Florente, a 50-year-old builder who had travelled to the area in search of his brother. “This was a community – now all you can see is rocks.”

Further up the road, rescue workers unearthed another five bodies, including a young child whose limp corpse was wrapped in a black bin liner and dispatched to the local morgue in a mud-covered ambulance.

“We can’t be certain about reducing the impact of the rains, but we cannot allow people to die – this is our mission,” Rousseff said.

In Nova Friburgo, a neighbouring town of Teresópolis, at least 214 bodies have been recovered.

“This family no longer exists,” read the headline of a Rio tabloid, alongside the photo of a prominent fashion designer and former Newsweek employee who was buried alongside eight relatives.

“It’s a terrible scene,” said a local judge, Jos� Ricardo Ferreira de Aguiar, as he pulled back a black tarpaulin and stepped into Teresópolis’s improvised mortuary – the garage of the town’s police station.

On the concrete floor before him lay 100 bodies, among them new-born babies, toddlers, elderly women and teenagers. Caked in brown mud and draped with pieces of soggy cardboard, the bodies were piled in a confusion of arms and legs.

Relatives were led into the morgue in groups of four to identify bodies splayed out under pieces of cardboard, sheets and muddy duvets. Those that had already been identified had tatty paper ID tags tied on to their toes.

“There’s no chance of even making this human,” Aguiar said. “We’ve just never seen anything like it here.”

Mario Sergio Macario, 22, a student who has been given the job of guarding the morgue’s entrance, said several colleagues from his tourism course were missing. “The station is chaos. It’s a public calamity. I’ve never seen anything like it,” he said.

Speaking after a helicopter flight over Teresópolis, Rio’s environment secretary, Carlos Minc, described the mudslides as the worst catastrophe in the region’s history.

“I believe the death toll is much higher than has been so far announced,” he said. “Many people died in their sleep. The mountainsides are coming down. The areas are very unstable.”

Angela Marina de Carvalho Silva, who believes she may have lost 15 relatives to the flood, including five nieces and nephews, said: “There are so many disappeared and so many that will probably never be found. There was nothing we could do. It was hell.”

Carvalho Silva took refuge in a neighbour’s house on high ground with her husband and daughter, and watched the torrential rain carry away cars, tree branches and animals and tear apart the homes of friends and family.

“It’s over. There’s nothing. The water came down and swept everything away,” said her husband, Sidney Silva.

UFO/ET Activism Now!

Is UFO/ET Activism Again On The Rise?

In the early 1990’s Operation Right To Know (ORTK)http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2008/03/ortk-ufo-demonstration.htmlbegan a series of UFO/ET demonstrations and other forms of activism. We started with a demonstration in front of the White House in Washington DC that stimulated demonstrations and other forms of activism across America, even to Argentina and the UK. The idea was to try to kick start a global UFO/ET activist movement that would stimulate mainstream media to take the subject seriously and not only report on UFOs, but to seriously investigate the issue. Even though we are in the mist of UFO/ET disclosure as Richard Hoagland aptly points out, most informed people realize that mainstream press attention is still key to the final unraveling of the 60 year old cover-up.

Unfortunately in the absence of vigorous citizen activism on a variety of issues including UFOs the mainstream press becomes the lapdog of government and special interests, rather than a watchdog for the citizenry. In the 1990’s the overall conditions for a sustained vigorous UFO/ET activism movement to end UFO secrecy was not favorable and our effort failed in its main goal to end the UFO/ET cover-up once and for all.

Some secondary goals succeeded like the focusing of major press attention onto the subject. I believe this succeeded in sparked many mainstream UFO shows. We also made inroads in stimulating an awareness in the UFO community that good science can’t succeed if it being suppressed, and its data being manipulated for political reasons. A political problem deserves political solutions, something some very savvy propagandists and intelligence people in the UFO community realize very well!

Now almost 20 years later the times are changing and we are the mist of accelerating disclosure where the conditions are becoming more favorable for UFO activism. These conditions include with the rise of the Internet, Internet social networking sites like Facebook, Exopolitics, a growing number of informed individuals in the UFO community, a band beginning to sing UFO protest songs, and a increase of media savvy UFO experts talking to the mainstream press. (Stanton Friedman can’t stand up to the media savvy propagandists and debunkers on his own!)

As Richard Hoagland in a recent interview with George Nooryhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sfjEkYX5Ek pointed out, government’s create boundaries that the mainstream press will not cross and it’s not real unless its on CNN. It is now my contention that a ground swell of sustained citizen activism is growing to a point that will allow the press to push the boundaries of serious reporting and investigation to eventually bust up the UFO/ET cover-up. We can’t hold the mainstream press entirely responsible for abdicating it’s watchdog status beginning in the 1950’s in the face of a government propaganda blitz of denial and ridicule and public apathy.

In 1993 in the second UFO demonstration in front of the White House ORTK got massive media attention that spread across the country and the globe. While the Washington AP, a critical bottleneck of press information, tried to subvert our action through disinformation and ridicule, CNN to its credit was there honestly covering our event with it’s top reporter a good friend of a friend of mine.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MI6BSLUV9UU Later Larry King from CNN covered our Pentagon demonstration. CNN has once again pressed the boundaries with its excellent coverage of the Salas-Hastings press conference in Washington. http://pnahay.home.sprynet.com/ufo/

Today Jeff Peckman supported by Larry Bryant one of the original members of ORTK have resurrected UFO activism with the Denver Initiative. Now that I am on Facebook and can see the possibilities, I have begun to help out to build up Internet buzz in preparation for mainstream press attention before, during and after this event. Since several days ago when I first began to push the petition http://www.petitiononline.com/drive on Facebook there has been a sharp spike of petition signatures to over 1000.

Anybody can sign this petition even overseas and I ask folks to please do so. Your signature matters and sends a signal in support of Jeff Peckman and the power of social networking in general. With more social networking on Facebook by new UFO/ET activist leaders, we should be able to double and even tripe the number of signatures in a sport period of time.

Now a band is going to hold a upcoming concert at the same time as the Initiative in Denverhttp://news.exopoliticsinstitute.org/index.php/archives/487 and is singing about a UFO Uprising, all the factors for a activist movement seem to be falling into place, and this time I hope it will blow the UFO/ET cover-up sky high. I think all we really need is for more leaders to arise who can use the social networks well. This to organize and follow through on ORTK original actions to end the sixty year old cover-up that is not only destroying the environment by suppressing new cheap exotic energy technologies, but is suppressing human evolution on earth! If you believe in UFO activism please friend me on Facebook and lets get moving!!!!!!
