South Africa recommended for extraterrestrial research

IT News Africa – IT news, Telecom news and Mobile news from an African perspective
The rivalry between South Africa and Australia is reaching beyond the sportsfield into the extraterrestial these days. A scientific panel selected South Africa over Australia as the best site for the proposed Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project, The Sydney Morning Herald reported on Saturday.

The SKA’s Site Advisory Committee will oversee the enormous radio telescope, but it remains unclear where the radio telescope will go. The SKA radio telescopes costs around $2.1-billion, consisting of 3000 dishes.
The telescope will help scientists address questions surrounding the early universe. The telescope is reportedly so sensitive that it might pick up television signals from distant planets, which could uncover extraterrestrial intelligence.
The bidding war started in 2006, but since construction costs are lower and South Africa is at a higher altitude they came out top.
SKA board members are set to meet next Monday in Manchester, United Kingdom. The meeting will take the aforementioned scientific panel’s thumbs up to South Africa into account. However, both sides will have the chance to present any contestations. These will be added to the panel’s recommendation, before the final announcement is made.

A new video reveals details of the extraordinary circular UFO–unidentified flying object–or strange phenomena that occurred over the skies of the Chelyabinsk, Russia, on December 23, 2011. The Chelyabinsk region, the January 23, 2012, sighting of a mysterious white donut-shaped object by residents of the South Ural village of Ashirov. The sighting investigated by a Russian news agency.

The new video, a report from Mexico’s noted Ufologist Jaime Maussan on the white sphere or circular shaped UFO–an object that looked as if it was surrounded by a cloud–with a noticeable whitish object in the middle, a UFO in the skies above the Chelyabinsk region for ‘more than four hours”. The unidentified flying object/strange phenomena captured in 20 videos.
Maussan: “They just released the 20th video from Cheliabinsk, one of the amazing sightings ever, that happened on December 23 in that Russian city. It’s on the center of Russia. It’s a clear demonstration of this presence and they are openly manifesting. Twenty videos, the object flew for more that four hours. Amazing. Cheliabinsk, a city that suffered three nuclear catastrophes that were ignored by the West in the times of the USSR.”

Maussan’s right, there were three unreported nuclear catastrophes in the Cheliabinsk region during the Communist Russia regime that were ignored by the West.
Info from the fascinating, well-worth-your-time to read article Chelyabinsk, Russia, the Most Contaminated Spot on the Planet:
In the late 1940?s, about 80 kilometers north of the city of Chelyabinsk, an atomic weapons complex called “Mayak” was built. Its existence has only recently been acknowledged by Russian officials, though, in fact, the complex, bordered to the west by the Ural Mountains, and to the north by Siberia, was the goal of Gary Powers’s surveillance flight in May of 1960.
The people of the area have suffered no less than three nuclear disasters: For over six years, the Mayak complex systematically dumped radioactive waste into the Techa River, the only source of water for the 24 villages which lined its banks.The four largest of those villages were never evacuated, and only recently have the authorities revealed to the population why they strung barbed wire along the banks of the river some 35 years ago.Russian doctors who study radiation sickness in the area estimate that those living along the Techa River received an average of four times more radiation than the Chernobyl victims.
In 1957, the area suffered its next calamity when the cooling system of a radioactive waste containment unit malfunctioned and exploded.The explosion spewed some 20 million curies of radioactivity into the atmosphere. About two million curies spread throughout the region, exposing 270,000 people to as much radiation as the Chernobyl victims.Less than half of one percent of these people were evacuated, and some of those only after years had passed.
The third disaster came ten years later.The Mayak complex had been using Lake Karachay as a dumping basin for its radioactive waste since 1951.In 1967, a drought reduced the water level of the lake, and gale-force winds spread the radioactive dust throughout twenty-five thousand square kilometers, further irradiating 436,000 people with five million curies, approximately the same as at Hiroshima.

Best picture ever of UFO was taken over Perthshire.. but Government officials shredded it, claims expert

By The Daily Record

A FORMER Government UFO investigator has revealed how officials shredded the most compelling evidence for aliens that he has ever seen.
Nick Pope claimed a photograph of a metallic spacecraft in the sky over Calvine in Perthshire mysteriously disappeared after the Ministry of Defence got their hands on it.
He added: “This was easily the most compelling UFO photo I’ve ever seen in my life.
“It went to the technical specialists at the Defence Intelligence Staff and elsewhere. Their results of the analysis were that this was a real thing – it wasn’t a faked photo.”
Pope, who ran the Government’s UFO project from 1991 to 1994, said he had the image in his office but it was removed and later disappeared.
He said that when he challenged officials about the photo, they claimed there was no record of it.
Speaking about the spacecraft onBBC Radio Scotland’s Tales of the Unexplained, Pope added: “It was a diamond-shaped metallic craft about 25 metres in diameter and there seemed to be military jets in the background.
“It wasn’t clear whether they were escorting this thing or even maybe chasing it.
“I actually had a copy of this. It was one of the things blown up on my office wall when I was at the UFO project.
“One day, my head of division took it down and locked it in a drawer because he didn’t think we should be displaying something like that.
“When the Ministry of Defence declassified and released its UFO files, which is an ongoing process, those photos and the copies that had been on my wall had mysteriously disappeared.”
He added: “I suspect that certain people thought that this was some secret prototype aircraft, a next-generation stealth that maybe nobody should be seeing.
“And maybe somebody quietly put it through the shredder and thought they were doing us a favour.”
Tales of the Unexplained is on Radio Scotland on Thursday at 2pm.

Fourth Reich Rising: Iron Sky and the Nazi UFO Mythos

Many have speculated in the decades following the end of the Second World War that the Axis Powers–namely Nazi Germany–had been involved in the secret production of highly advanced technology and exotic aircraft. According to various sources of rumor and speculation, some of these advanced aircraft, variously believed to have been jet-propelled saucers and possibly even “alienesque” field propulsion discs, were given names such as the “Hannebu” and “Vril,” the latter of these drawing from the ancient traditions of esoterica that many among Hitler’s ranks drew heavily from, both in terms of inspiration, as well as mystical and technological knowledge.
The idea that the Nazis may have been utilizing advanced technologies toward the end of the war is an intriguing prospect indeed. After all, the Ally’s most advanced aircraft had still yet to employ the the use of swept-wing designs and other more efficient construction that the Nazis were indeed exploring already. However, those inclined toward paranoia might wonder if there were other things Hitler’s scientists and aeronautics engineers might have been developing… and perhaps even strangest of all, if there is any existing potential that any such craft or other technologies might have somehow continued on, carefully (and conveniently) behinds the scenes of mainstream science.

This idea, however strange it seems, has obviously remained popular enough, at least, to have garnered Hollywood’s attention; hence the upcoming release of the farcical new alternative history/Scifi yarn Iron Sky features the concept heavily, drawing from the idea of Nazis who had gone into hiding on the dark side of Earth’s moon, in order to regroup and institute an elaborate and several-decades-long plan for revenge against the Earth that scorned them during the 1940s.
This, of course, is wholly fictional; and yet, the notion that Nazi technology and advanced physics they may have been investigating toward the end of the war has nonetheless served well as an alternative, in the minds of some, with regard to the origins of UFO craft witnessed since the late 1940s. For many, this notion seems more plausible than the idea that exotic lifeforms might be the forces behind what may, in fact, only appear to be highly-exotic aircraft seen above Earth at various times. This is likely because the idea of alien visitors, while intriguing, remains an area that is largely unquantifiable in terms of there being any scientific proof to back such claims. On the other hand, while we may never know to what real extent Nazi scientists may have been involved in projects that dealt with such things as anti-gravity, field propulsion systems, and other highly advanced technology, there is little question as to whether they would have shown interest in such things. Again, the question regarding the entire Nazi UFO question is this: how plausible is it that technologies as advanced as what do seem to be described in modern UFO reports could not only have been developed here on Earth, but were already in existence by the end of the 1950s?

During a recent edition of The Gralien Report Podcast, I discussed the various curious potentials associated with the Nazi UFO mythos during an interview with author Joseph P. Farrell, who put things in no uncertain terms: while there is evidence that certain files and documents released over the years may have some relation to alleged “Nazi sciences” of yesteryear, there is very little evidence that anything akin to what we see in films like Iron Sky will have any direct relevance to the reality of the situation. In other words, to suppose that UFOs might emanate from decades-old Nazi science is probably even less likely than to suppose that there may be an extraterrestrial link to the UFO equation.
Of course, when we take into consideration all the potential ties to underground Antarctic bases, strange experiments taking place during the Third Reich, and high-strangeness claims that involve the ongoing and multi-faceted UFO mythos, there will always be proponents of there being some esoteric Nazi connection to the greater UFO mystery… however unlikely the evidence for this may be in reality.
