That's No Moon
Many Uncrazy Clevelanders Have
Seen Strange Lights In The Sky. Who - Or What - Is Buzzing Northeast
To suggest that Northeast Ohio could be witness to the next mass UFO
sighting does not officially make you a member of the tin-foil hat
crowd. If you believe even just a few of the witnesses, Cleveland and
its surrounding communities might already be a hotspot.
During the previous two years, the Cleveland UFOlogy Project,
considered the oldest of its kind on this side of the globe, has
documented 20 credible sightings. The 2005 documentary Dan Akroyd:
Unplugged on UFOs highlighted the peculiar lights over Lake Erie near
Eastlake, where witnesses reported their latest sighting just this past
June. Earlier this year, an "orb" was videotaped over the Key Bank
Tower during a peace rally, and the incident made it on the CBS nightly
The hype continues: Literally hundreds of thousands have downloaded
Internet videos of Northeast Ohio UFOs. The Cleveland Office of
Homeland Security has investigated. And one of the Eastlake UFO
witnesses says he's signed a contract with a History Channel for a
"If you take all of the people in Ohio who are interested in this
subject, I bet half of them are from that part of the state," says
Central Ohio-based William E. Jones, state director for Ohio MUFON, or
Mutual UFO Network. "A lot of folks up there have seen things over the
years. More people are interested up there. I don't know why."
Sam Phillips has long been a fixture of Cleveland's music scene. He's
an accomplished drummer and "hand snapper," and appeared on The Arsenio
Hall Show. When interviewed for this story, however, he was homeless
and sleeping at the homes of friends and family. Phillips taped a
strange light spinning and hovering over the Key Bank Tower on March
10, during a peace rally.
"This is not about me," says Phillips, who admits he has become
obsessed with what he saw that night. "There's a pattern here. There's
a riddle here. And I want answers. I want an explanation."
He believes it wasn't coincidence the sighting took place over a peace
rally. During the sighting, he recalls saying that our "brothers and
sisters are going to come down from the universe and humble our ass."
Phillips' story, however, is but a sidebar in the current wave of
Northeast Ohio UFO mania. Taking center stage is Lake Erie, and Michael
Lee Hill of Eastlake.
Hill, like Phillips, is a musician. In 2001, Grammy-award winner and
guitar legend Steve Vai picked Hill as the winner of a national guitar
contest. Hill is gregarious, upbeat and likeable. He's unconventional
and complex. He's certain that the UFOs he has seen are targeting him.
"I've had contact my whole life," he says. "I remember asking my
mother, "Why do Santa's elves keep visiting me?'"
The recent visitations started in earnest five years ago, not far from
the coal-burning power plant, he says. While walking on the beach, not
far from his home, Hill said he witnessed a top hat-shaped craft
hovering and pulsating over the shoreline. This same area is also
famous in UFO lore for a 1988 encounter documented by the Coast Guard.
Hill started taking a video camera to the lakefront. Since then he's
captured scores of bright lights that appear to hover over Lake Erie.
He's uploaded many of his videos to YouTube, and those caught the
attention of David Sereda, who directed the Akroyd documentary. Hill
created the music for Sereda's latest project, From Here To Andromeda.
Hill also says he recently signed a contract for a History Channel
project, but the channel did not return Free Times' calls.
"I really do consider myself a spiritual messenger; I know it sounds
freaky," says Hill, adding that the UFO filmed over the Key Bank Tower
is one of the same orbs he captured over Lake Erie. "There's a huge
story unfolding here. I think they're absolutely sending us a message.
I believe they are here to help us become a galactic society."
At the other end of the spectrum is Eastlake resident Gary Strauss, who
says adamantly, "I'm not one of those UFO people." He's a chemist and a
supervisor at a local laboratory. He's lived in his home on the lake
since 1984, in the same neighborhood as Hill, though they've never met.
Early on the morning of June 21, Strauss and his son saw four bright
lights, shaped like the tip of a Sharpie marker, high above the water.
The lights were in a line parallel with the shoreline, positioned at 11
o'clock and 30 degrees above the horizon.
Then one vanished. Then another. Soon all four were gone. Suddenly,
they reappeared in the shape of a diamond. Then they went flat again.
This went on for more than an hour.
He called the Eastlake police and they dispatched an officer. Strauss
remembers the officer saying, "What is that?"
The following day, his son checked the Internet for lights over Lake
Erie and found one of Hill's videos. He recalls his son shouting,
"That's it! That's what we saw!"
But unlike other Lake Erie witnesses, Strauss doesn't believe the
lights are extraterrestrial. He guesses they're the result of
government or aerospace industry experiments with new technology.
"They're bouncing radar off some type of object," he speculates. "Some
form of radar reflection technology. I'm just making an educated guess."
Nevertheless, he's intrigued.
"I look outside a lot more. I want to see it again," says Strauss.
"This time, I'm going to have my camera." But he rejects the suggestion
that it's anything more than curiosity: "No. I'm not obsessive.
The Eastlake police actually had two witnesses that night. A detective,
who asked not to be named, told the Free Times that he too saw the
lights, but from a different vantage point.
The Eastlake police asked the Cleveland office of Homeland Security to
look into the sighting, and the detective says he was told later that
on the night of the sighting, the Canadian Coast Guard was near the
opposite side of the lake searching for a man who had been reported
missing. A Canadian Coast Guard helicopter dropped flares, connected to
miniature parachutes, over the water. Later it was discovered the man
Strauss finds this implausible, believes the lights appeared in a
straight line, then vanished, then reappeared in a diamond formation.
The Bush administration reportedly has funneled billions to the
aerospace industry to develop space-based weapons under the guise of
missile defense. Secret military space-plane programs are believed to
have been revived as well.
Another possibility are LAGEOS, or Laser Geodynamics Satellites.
Publicly, the government says two are in orbit, and both are roughly
the size of a basketball. They are made of brass and partially covered
with a retro-reflection material that returns light in the direction it
comes from, similar to a road sign.
There's also NASA's Glenn Research Center at the Plum Brook site in
Sandusky. The site is home to the world's largest space environment
simulation chamber. That chamber will test NASA's new spacecraft,
Orion, which will take the US back to the moon. Recent upgrades to the
Plum Brook site will also allow it to test "next- generation lunar
landers, robotic systems, and military and commercial aircraft,"
according to NASA's Web site.
"So here I come walking out of the TV station one night in November
maybe a decade ago after our early evening newscast," says Ted Henry of
New Channel 5. "In perfect formation there were five large objects
flying smoothly in my direction. It was stunning.
"What I saw was the undersides of five flat objects flying in exact
formation. The front two were enormous, maybe the size of several
football fields, and the three trailing were smaller, flying in a
slightly irregular pattern."
"What do I think they were? All I can really tell you is what I saw."
Henry has talked about his sighting many times on the air. He puts the
experience this way: "One thing is certain, for people who see
something in the sky, as I did over Cleveland years ago, it can be a
life changing experience."

Reich, Little Rock and UFOs
by Kenn Thomas - steamshovelpress.com
The Little Rock Nine, a group
that integrated Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas in
September 1957, observed its anniversary Tuesday even as the protests
in Jena, Louisiana underscored continued racial strife in the US . But
the plight of the Nine was not the only social oppression that America
suffered in 1957--the UFO cover up was in full flower and UFO believers
were handily marginalized and even prosecuted. The scientist Wilhelm
Reich was thrown in jail in part for exploring human energy potential
and therapeutic techniques not approved by the Food and Drug
Administration, but also in part because he was using the consequent
cloudbuster technology to battle UFOs in the Tucson desert.
Reich had been condemned as a medical quack, his books had been burned
and his "life energy" boxes, precursors to a type cannon called a
cloudbuster that harnessed atmospheric energy, were destroyed. Reich
had harmed no one and, indeed, had helped many with his understanding
and manipulation of what he called the orgone. He witnessed several
UFOs on his estate in Maine and used the orgone cloudbuster guns to
cause them to go away. He did the same on a famous trip to the desert
southwest that he documented in his last book, Contact With Space. By
his own estimation, he fought the first battle against space intruders,
and won. The FDA, of course, never truly followed Reich's scientific
protocols on either orgone boxes or cloudbuster guns, and convicted
Reich only on technical violation of its injunction to stop
distributing orgone boxes.
Authorities threw Reich in a prison cell in Lewisberg , PA from which
he did not emerge alive. In memos to the prison chaplain before his
death, however, Reich continued to write passionately about the social
situation in the US . His note from September 1957 even includes
reference to the disturbance at Little Rock Central High School . He
emphasized the very psychological and emotional undercurrents he felt
were being ignored in the broader social arena of conspiratorial 1950s
America , what prevented many from seeing the space ships he saw in
"I am merely fulfilling my public duties as a U. S. citizen and worker
in planetary affairs if I continue to point out where the true danger
to our social and personal existence is placed: its is Emotional
Poisoning: disruption through sowing distrust throughout our society,
doping and drugging of our population, especially our YOUTH; draining
financially through areas [...]race, a camouflage of the true menace,
the Emotional Poisoning a la Little Rock racial upheavals; keeping our
high placed officials at bay through fear of sexual scandals
[Clinton!--kt], railroading efficient men and women into prisons or
lunatic asylums through [?] up there environments; subverting justice
by whispered little lies & frightening or using judges. Doing all
this destruction unnoticed as it were by all those responsible. It was
clear from the very beginning that [?] and now lyrics were subverted by
such use of stupidities & evasions on our part [rock'n'roll!--kt],
especially by the staid reluctance to talk bluntly and take the bull by
the horns. The bull is really no more tan a few slimy tape worms eating
away at our emotional guts. It is high time to start giving social
power to the established functions of Love, Work & Learning as
bastions against the tapeworms."
The prison memo form includes this banal and perhaps prescient
statement: "Your failure to specifically state your problem may result
in no action being taken." Reich's imprisonment was in part the end
result of mis-reporting on him that appeared in the New Republic under
the editorial leadership of a now-confessed communist spy named Michael
Straight in a book entitled, After Long Silence. New Republic made its
own pronouncement about Little Rock in its July 7, 1958 edition,
complaining about the Supreme Court's failure to stop legal challenges
that were slowing down the integration process. The Supreme Court,
opined New Republic, "must stand the ground they themselves have
assumed, or the grand experiment they inaugurated will end in bitter
farce, with consequences for the state of the union that stagger the
Clearly the magazine had a better view of the possible consequences of
Supreme Court actions than it did on its own. The consequences of
Reich's work with UFOs and otherwise, on the other hand, and the
implications of the study of character structure on the understanding
of race issues has continued over the years. Writing in a chapter
called "Racism and Slavery" in The American Slave: A Composite
Autobiography (Westport, Connecticut: Greenwood Publishing Company,
1972), my old friend historian George Rawick notes the impact of "that
great underground classic of modern thought, Wilhelm Reich, Character
Analysis, 3d ed. rev., first published in German in 1933, and its less
well-known but significant companion, The Mass Psychology of Fascism,
first published in German in 1933. While I cannot subscribe to all of
Reich's system, this chapter could not have been written without his
monumental attempt to relate Marx and Freud which loosened the
ideological armoring of Western rationalism for me and many others."
Although Reich never stated it explicitly, clearly he saw that same
armoring as the block that keeps so many from accepting the realities
of the UFO issue.

Guardian of the Loch
Adrian Shine came to Loch Ness
in 1973 to find the monster. Today he protects the highland glen,
unravels its natural mysteries and exposes the hoaxes.
The world's foremost expert on the Loch Ness Monster is sitting in a
lodge overlooking the fabled highland lake, discussing plans to seek UN
World Heritage Site status to protect the area.
Suddenly his eyes flash to the window and a pointing finger shoots out
like the hand of God.
"Look -- look out on the loch! That's amazing!" A visiting Canadian
journalist jumps to the window, wildly hopeful -- despite himself --
that he will see Nessie cutting through the cold, dark water below.
Instead, the object of excitement is an antique coal-burning steamboat
billowing clouds of black smoke as it chugs southward down Loch Ness.
"That's a Clyde Puffer," says Adrian Shine, naturalist, scientist,
inventor, explorer, renaissance man and chief guardian of the Loch Ness
legacy. "Haven't seen one of those in years."
Shine's eyes sparkle with pleasure at the sight of the rare watercraft.
Or perhaps amusement at the naive expectancy and obvious disappointment
of the visitor.
Adrian Shine certainly wasn't expecting to see a long-necked water
beast cruising down his beloved loch.
Shine's Loch Ness Project group was instrumental in unmasking the most
famous image of Nessie -- the so-called "surgeon's photo" seen on the
next page -- as a fraud in 1994, 60 years after it seared the spectacle
of a prehistoric water monster into the public imagination.
He has been exploring the loch's immensely deep underwater world for
the past 34 years. In that time, the young zealot has become the
reasoned and skeptical elder statesman, debunker of hoaxes and false
hopes, and formulator of rational explanations for the hundreds of
eyewitness accounts of Nessie sightings.
But still, there is always the hope of a Nessie eureka.
As Shine says: "I do not believe in the Loch Ness Monster -- yet --
because there isn't enough evidence for it. But 1,000 people like you
and me do believe they've seen it."
Shine first came to Loch Ness in 1973, more than a decade after
organized, scientific investigation of the Nessie phenomenon had begun.
His early efforts were more brave than productive. The first summer, he
spent nights rowing around Loch Ness and an even deeper loch, Morar, as
he dragged bait and waited to photograph whatever emerged from the
black depths. Nothing did.
By the next summer, he was plunging into those murky depths in a
homemade submarine built of fibreglass and plate glass in his parents'
backyard over the winter. With the help of an amateur crew, Shine made
dozens of dives during 1974 and '75 in his one-man submersible. He came
close to dying on at least one occasion, but never found the object of
Today that submersible is on display at the Loch Ness Centre in
Drumnadrochit, where the efforts of Shine and others to uncover the
truth underlying the mysteries of the lochs are explained in a stunning
While other Loch Ness investigators fell away, Shine stuck to his quest
and slowly became the driving force and chief chronicler of Loch Ness
research projects. In the 1980s, that quest shifted from the search for
an actual creature to a comprehensive study of the loch environment in
which such a creature might exist.
In 1981, Shine and a volunteer crew began sonar exploration of Loch
Ness, cruising 24 hours a day in the patrol vessel John Murray as an
operator sat glued to the echo sounder.
That culminated in Operation Deepscan in 1987, a massive operation
involving dozens of sonar-equipped boats that provided the first
complete mapping of the 230-metre-deep loch. Sonar images of several
large, moving masses were captured but remain unexplained.
In the 1990s, Shine again engineered new equipment to take deep core
samples from the lake bottom, giving researchers a record of
sedimentary deposits from Ice Age clay through to nuclear pollution
from the Chernobyl disaster.
Today his focus is primarily on the search for historical artifacts on
the bottom. So far he and other searchers have found the remains of the
Crusader jet boat in which John Cobb died in 1952 while trying to set a
water speed record on Loch Ness, as well as a large fishing vessel that
sank in the 1920s and a Wellington bomber that ditched in the loch
after engine failure during World War II.
"There's all sorts of room out there for strange things," Shine says.
But at the end of the day, there is always Nessie.
"I could make a very good case (for the monster's existence) in court,"
Shine says. "Unshakable eyewitness testimony is very powerful."
Whether Shine believes or not, others certainly do.
"Absolutely there is a Nessie," local historian and story-teller Ray
Owens says. "I've lived here my entire life and never seen it, but I do
know two people -- including a police sergeant -- who have. I can't
Taxi driver Frank Davidson has lived in the area since 1964 and says he
has seen two "disturbances" on the loch that he attributes to Nessie.
Shine says most, if not all, of the Nessie sightings can be accounted
for by more mundane explanations.
"Conventional science can illuminate the mystery," he says. "For
example, there are strong underwater waves in the loch that can move
objects against the current."
Some recorded sightings have turned out to be birds, boats, swimming
deer, the wake of passing vessels, even sunken logs popping to the
surface. And always there is the possibility of giant fish or eels,
although Loch Ness probably does not have a sufficient food supply of
smaller fish to support a large creature.
Shine's favourite hypothesis for the "strange fish" sightings of the
19th century is that a giant Atlantic sturgeon made it into Loch Ness
through the Caledonian Canal. The sturgeon, which can grow to more than
three metres long, has a reptilian head that has been described as
looking like everything from a crocodile to a horse.
The most recent significant sighting came last May. Gordon Holmes, a
lab technician from the University of Bradford near Leeds, videotaped a
strong disturbance in the loch, which he believed to be caused by a
moving creature. He took the video to the Loch Ness Centre for Shine's
"I looked through the viewfinder and said it looked like the wake of a
large fish," Shine said.
Shine's initial observation helped propel Holmes' footage onto the BBC
evening news and the front pages of British newspapers. But further
review of the video in better conditions has led Shine to change his
opinion: "It showed more like a vertical downdraft (of wind) called a
Shine's Loch Ness quest will always be tied to Nessie.
"We're trying to use the monster story to open up an appreciation of
lakes in general and Loch Ness in particular," he says. "It's showing
how dynamic a lake is and opening up what you can't see just by looking
at the surface."
And maybe one day ...
"There's a big difference between being cynical and skeptical," Shine
says. "A cynic can make his living off the monster without ever
believing in it. A skeptic will say there isn't enough evidence to
prove there's a Loch Ness Monster but there is also no irrefutable
proof there couldn't be one."

A CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE DEPARTMENT -
Top Five Reasons for Governments
to Keep UFOs Secret
Stanton Friedman, a physicist who once worked for such giants as
Westinghouse and General Electric, has devoted much of his adult life
to ferreting out clues in the UFO controversy.
Pitching his case before more than 600 campus audiences, Friedman
concludes that alien aircraft have been around for decades and that
governments have tried to keep an airtight lid on them.
He has five reasons for a massive and sustained cover-up that he labels
“the cosmic Watergate.”
1. Government agents want to figure out how crashed aircraft work.
2. No one wants any enemy governments to know what has been discovered.
3. If some trusted public figures, say the queen of England and the
pope, disclosed UFOs, society would be shaken up, and earthlings would
begin thinking of themselves as such, rather than as citizens of
4. The fourth problem is the fundamentalist Christian perspective that
aliens are “the work of the Devil,” quoting 700 Club founder Pat
Robertson and the late Rev. Jerry Falwell. The two said earth contains
the only intelligence life in the universe, he said.
5. A public confirmation would lead to economic chaos, and lastly,
secrecy is a way of life in government.
“Is there really intelligent life on earth?” Friedman asked. “Look at
how we act. Isn’t that kind of an insult to the notion of an Almighty
God that this is the best You can do?
“Look around the planet. The U.S. will spend half a trillion dollars on
the military this year. Yet, 30,000 children will die needlessly this
day, ever single day, of preventable disease or starvation.”
Friedman pointed to 300,000 pages of still-classified materials in the
Eisenhower Library, unrelated to UFOs, and accounts of the government
lying to families of downed military pilots, decades after they finally
acknowledged their deaths but distorted the truth behind each one.
Without question, he said, thousands and thousands of sighting have
been confirmed and kept secret by the government.
Friedman can only surmise why aliens are checking out the planet, but
said there are “a zillion reasons,” including mere scientific research
or perhaps mining for precious metals since Earth is the densest planet
“Perhaps they’re trying to evaluate behavior,” he said.
More likely, with the rapid technological advances within the past 100
years and the arming by nations of nuclear firepower, Friedman
suggested, aliens could be jittery about what’s going on in the galaxy,
since they obviously have reached a superior level if they can reach us
and we can’t travel to their turf.
“When you break it down, I make one assumption about every advanced
civilization — namely, that it’s concerned about its own survival and
security. You have to keep tabs on the primitives in the neighborhood
but only close tabs on those primitives who show signs of being able to
When World War II ended, aliens knew earthlings had achieved three
basic steps that suggested they were ready for space travel — nuclear
weapons, V2 rockets and powerful radar. Interestingly enough, all three
were centered at Roswell, N.M., and in 1952, shortly after the
legendary Flatwoods Monster in Braxton County, this country tested its
first H-Bomb in the Pacific, a 10-megaton blast that produced a
fireball three miles in diameter.
Friedman isn’t sure if the aliens are to be feared. Possibly, he
suggested in jest, Earth is the ideal honeymoon capital for newlyweds
in the galaxy. For more than six decades of known observance, they have
yet to do anything harmful.
Yet, on the other hand, there is the analogy of the domestic turkey.
“Turkeys in mid-November probably say, ‘Look how lucky we are. We have
these masters who give us all the food we can eat, more than we can
eat, water to drink, and keep us warm when it’s cold inside. They’re
nice guys.’ Then Thanksgiving comes along ...”
As Pravda.Ru previously reported KGB agents were making records of UFO
observations in special Blue Folder Files comprising the famous Blue
Folder have been declassified a while
ago. The prominent Soviet cosmonaut Pavel Popovich got the folder from
the KGB in 1991. These days Mr. Popovich holds the position of honorary
president of the Academy of Informational and Applied Ufology. The
folder contains numerous descriptions of UFO flights and reports on
some (mostly failed) attempts taken by the military in order to catch
Aliens acknowledged back in 1968
In 1968, 13 leading aircraft designers and engineers of a brand-new
aircraft section of the Soviet Committee on Space Technology and
Exploration forwarded a letter to the Soviet Prime Minister Alexei
Kosygin. Actually, it was a request to set up a special organization
for the study of UFOs. A reply to the letter was signed by Academician
Shchukin. It is an amazing document per se:
“A number of competent organizations of the Presidium of the USSR
Academy of Sciences in cooperation with the Chief Directorate of
Meteorological Service, Defense Ministry and a few other agencies
considered the issue of nature of the so-called flying objects. The
organizations involved in the study of the atmosphere and space have
been instructed to register and do research on any cases of UFOs for
identification purposes. The USSR Academy of Sciences is charged with
general monitoring of the phenomena, and therefore a special
organization for the study of UFOs is not required.”

Scientists Say Object From Space Caused Ice Age Extinctions
What caused the extinction of
mammoths and the decline of Stone Age people about 13,000 years ago
remains hotly debated. Overhunting by Paleoindians, climate change and
disease lead the list of probable causes. But an idea once considered a
little out there is now hitting closer to home.
A team of international researchers, including two Northern Arizona
University geologists, reports evidence that a comet or low-density
object barreling toward Earth exploded in the upper atmosphere and
triggered a devastating swath of destruction that wiped out most of the
large animals, their habitat and humans of that period.
“The detonation either fried them or compressed them because of the
shock wave,” said Ted Bunch, NAU adjunct professor of geology and
former NASA researcher who specializes in impact craters. “It was a
mini nuclear winter.”
Bunch and Jim Wittke, a geologic materials analyst at NAU, are
co-authors of the paper, which fingers an extraterrestrial impact
12,900 years ago for the mass extinctions at the end of the Ice Age.
The paper was just released online in the Proceedings of the National
Academy of Sciences. The research team includes several members of the
U.S. National Academy of Sciences and researchers from Hungary and the
No one has found a giant crater in the Earth that could attest to such
a cataclysmic impact 13,000 years ago, but the research team offers
evidence of a comet, two and a half to three miles in diameter, that
detonated 30 to 60 miles above the earth, triggering a massive
shockwave, firestorms and a subsequent drastic cooling effect across
most of North America and northern Europe.
“The comet may have broken up into smaller pieces as it neared the
Earth and then these pieces detonated in various places above two
continents,” Bunch said.
The evidence for multiple detonations comes from a four-inch-thick
“black mat” of carbon-rich material that appears as far north as
Canada, Greenland and Europe to as far south as the Channel Islands off
the coast of California and eastward to the Carolinas. Two sites exist
in Arizona at Murray Springs and Lehner Ranch, both near Sierra Vista.
Evidence of mammoths and other megafauna and early human hunters, known
as the Clovis culture, are found beneath the black mat but are missing
entirely within or above it. This led the research team to conclude an
extraterrestrial impact wiped out many of the inhabitants of the Late
Pleistocene. Bunch notes that some animals may have survived in
The black mat was formed by ponding of water and algal blooms and
contains carbon, soot and glassy carbon—remnants of burned materials.
Some of these remnants are extraterrestrial in nature. For example, the
research team has identified fullerenes, spherical carbon cages
resembling a soccer ball, which are formed in shock events outside the
Earth’s atmosphere. Trapped inside the fullerenes is a concentration of
helium 3 that is many times greater than what is found in the Earth’s
The black mat also has turned up nanodiamonds, which are formed in the
interstellar medium outside the solar system, by or by a high-explosive
“Either these things came in with the impactor or they were made during
impact detonation. We have no other explanation for their presence,”
The magnitude of the detonations would have been huge.
“A hydrogen bomb is the equivalent of about 100 to 1,000 megatons,”
Bunch said. “The detonations we’re talking about would be about 10
million megatons. That’s larger than the simultaneous detonation of all
the world’s nuclear bombs past and present.”
The research team believes the detonations destabilized a vast ice
sheet, known as the Laurentide Ice Sheet, that covered most of what was
then Canada and the northern United States. Heat from the detonation
and firestorms would have melted much of the ice sheet, releasing water
vapor into the atmosphere.
“The result was rapid cooling of about eight degrees over the next 100
years,” Bunch said. The melting of the ice sheet and subsequent climate
change would explain the water-based nature of the black mat.
Catastrophic extraterrestrial impacts are not new. Scientists theorize
a much larger asteroid impact annihilated the dinosaurs and about 85
percent of the Earth’s biomass about 65 million years ago. The most
recent incident, known as the Tunguska event, occurred in 1908 in
Russia. The Tunguska explosion was an airburst of a comet or meteorite
estimated at 10-15-megatons that destroyed tens of millions of trees
across more than 800 square miles.
Bunch says impact airbursts may be more common than previously thought
with possibly two or three such events having occurred over the last
100,000 years. And more are sure to follow.

Study Reveals The Truth
About Parallel Universes
Parallel universes really do exist, according to a mathematical
discovery by Oxford scientists described by one expert as "one of the
most important developments in the history of science".
The parallel universe theory, first proposed in 1950 by the US
physicist Hugh Everett, helps explain mysteries of quantum mechanics
that have baffled scientists for decades, it is claimed.
In Everett's "many worlds" universe, every time a new physical
possibility is explored, the universe splits. Given a number of
possible alternative outcomes, each one is played out - in its own
A motorist who has a near miss, for instance, might feel relieved at
his lucky escape. But in a parallel universe, another version of the
same driver will have been killed. Yet another universe will see the
motorist recover after treatment in hospital. The number of alternative
scenarios is endless.
It is a bizarre idea which has been dismissed as fanciful by many
experts. But the new research from Oxford shows that it offers a
mathematical answer to quantum conundrums that cannot be dismissed
lightly - and suggests that Dr Everett, who was a Phd student at
Princeton University when he came up with the theory, was on the right
Commenting in New Scientist magazine, Dr Andy Albrecht, a physicist at
the University of California at Davis, said: "This work will go down as
one of the most important developments in the history of science."
According to quantum mechanics, nothing at the subatomic scale can
really be said to exist until it is observed. Until then, particles
occupy nebulous "superposition" states, in which they can have
simultaneous "up" and "down" spins, or appear to be in different places
at the same time.
Observation appears to "nail down" a particular state of reality, in
the same way as a spinning coin can only be said to be in a "heads" or
"tails" state once it is caught.
According to quantum mechanics, unobserved particles are described by
"wave functions" representing a set of multiple "probable" states. When
an observer makes a measurement, the particle then settles down into
one of these multiple options.
The Oxford team, led by Dr David Deutsch, showed mathematically that
the bush-like branching structure created by the universe splitting
into parallel versions of itself can explain the probabilistic nature
of quantum outcomes.

STRANGE TIMES, STRANGE PLACES DEPARTMENT -
Disappearance Adds to Nevada's Mysteries
Alien towns. Lost 19th-century cannons. Lake monsters. Frozen bodies
swimming at the bottom of Lake Tahoe. Nevada is a vortex for the
And it appears at this writing that we have another whopper of a puzzle
to add to the list.
The case of missing aviator Steve Fossett who disappeared from the
Flying M Ranch near Yerington Sept. 3 has techno-sleuths, psychics and
concerned folks around the world focused on our region.
The attention is natural, and for the same reason we see grown men in
suits scribbling out sudoku puzzles in airports -- our race is obsessed
with solving problems.
We want to know what happened to this most incredible man who has
broken world records and triumphed over fear time and again only to be
taken down during a simple day trip.
Fossett's tale inflates exponentially as the weeks pass without any
signs of the famed pilot or his blue and white plane, building upon his
already legendary life.
"We like to think that anything is findable with enough resources. But
it could turn into another Amelia Earhart situation," Ric Gillespie
told the Associated Press this week.
Government aircraft have searched more than 20,000 square miles around
Northern Nevada, followed every lead by air and foot and have found
nothing. Family and friends of the famous adventurer have also used
state-of-the-art technology and aircraft to scour the land and have
come up empty-handed.
And for the first time, Internet users have joined the effort. Tips and
satellite coordinates have poured in from all corners of the globe by
well-intended people who want answers.
One reader sent me an unusual e-mail message this week. The reader's
psychic friend had a vision of Fossett landing in Walker Lake (her best
guess for the water she envisioned). The reader wrote: "She said his
plane had a cracked block and he was trying to get back to the ranch
when he crashed."
Like Earhart, Fossett has fans the world over. Many wonder how much the
search has cost our government agencies as the constant drone continued
overhead for two solid weeks until the Civil Air Patrol ceased air
operations on Monday.
Final numbers aren't in, but it surely pales in comparison to Earhart's
In 1937, when Earhart disappeared, the U.S. government spent $4 million
looking for her, making the search the most costly and intensive air
and sea operation of its kind in history.
Coincidently, Fossett's plane could have landed close to the area of
another mystery Nevadans have been trying to solve for more than a
century -- Union General John C. Fremont's lost cannon.
Snow was deep over the Carson Pass in January 1844 as Fremont's group,
which included Kit Carson, tried to cross. The 1835-model mountain
howitzer they carried proved too cumbersome and they left it behind
somewhere near the state line and Bridgeport, Calif.
"They were in the vicinity west of the Walker River," said Nevada state
archivist Guy Rocha. "They just walked away from it."
The group headed to California and never returned to find it. Along the
way, Fremont is believed to be the first white man to view Lake Tahoe.
Treasure hunters have looked for the prized cannon without success,
using Fremont's journals as a guide.
"Like buried treasure, people will look for that cannon 'til kingdom
come," Rocha said.
Other enigma that may never be solved includes Tahoe Tessie, the
lake-faring monster that believers say lurks in the icy waters of Lake
Tahoe (no matter how much science is thrown at them to disprove this
Another stumper is the business about frozen bodies at the bottom of
that same lake in the Sierra. Oceanographer Jacques Cousteau was
supposedly frightened right out of his wetsuit during a dive in a sub
in the mid-1970s. "The world isn't ready for what was down there," he
was quoted as saying.
Cousteau did not release photographs from the deep-water trip, adding
to the mystery. Many divers have since requested to duplicate the dive.
And, of course, the mother of all mysteries: Area 51. Scientist Bob
Lazar who first spilled the beans about working with alien spacecraft
at the site in 1989 is now living in New Mexico with his wife, Joy,
their dogs and a rescue horse, and reportedly no longer talks about the
little green fellows.
I hope by the time this is published, Fossett has been found and this
mystery can be put to rest. If not, Nevada will keep his memory alive
in its treasure trove of unsolved mysteries.
