In a measurement taken on Wednesday, NASA’s Curiosity rover discovered startlingly high amounts of methane in the Martian air, a gas that on Earth is usually produced by living things. The data arrived back on Earth on Thursday, and by Friday, scientists working on the mission were excitedly discussing the news, which has not yet been announced by NASA.

NASA Rover on Mars Detects Puff of Gas That Hints at Possibility of Life

Methane has been detected by multiple craft on or at Mars multiple times. The speculation is it could be coming from life under the Martian soil, volcanoes or the rover itself. Methane does not last long in the atmosphere, so any that is detected has been released into the atmosphere relatively recently.

Flatulence!

It’s flatulence!

This is pretty old now, June 22, eh, but it was apparently a big one and noteworthily so.

All I know is that I am really digging the phrase, “startlingly high amounts.” Startling! Yes, sirree, I like that a lot.

 

 

Whoa!

Solar system wonderment…!

Some sort of a heat wave warms the rings of Uranus, even though the planet orbits far away from the sun.

New heat images of the planet, obtained by two telescopes in Chile, reveal the temperature of the rings for the first time: minus 320 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 195 degrees Celsius), or the boiling temperature of liquid nitrogen.

While that sounds cold by Earthly standards, consider that most of space is much colder, approaching a temperature at which atoms stop moving. This point is called absolute zero, which is roughly minus 460 F (minus 273 C).

Mysterious Glow Warms Rings of Uranus

A composite image of the atmosphere and rings of Uranus seen in thermal emission.

The scientists who captured the new images said they aren’t sure what’s causing the relative warmth. But the weird temperature proves that the brightest and densest ring at Uranus (also known as the epsilon ring) is very different from other ring systems in our solar system.

This is way cool and rather shocking. At least to me. I would think the rings would be colder, but, like humanity, what do I know? Ha! Napundivricuala, that’s what!

China’s Chang’e-4 lunar rover is currently exploring the Far Side of the Moon , all was going as expected until on July 28th when preparing to power the rover down one of the Chang’e-4 team noticed something peculiar , a different coloured area in a crater.

The team decided to change their plan and drive over to the area to investigate , they discovered an unusually coloured “substance” in the crater.

The drive team, excited by the discovery, called in their lunar scientists. Together, the teams decided to postpone Yutu-2’s plans to continue west and instead ordered the rover to check out the strange material

With the help of obstacle-avoidance cameras, Yutu-2 carefully approached the crater and then targeted the unusually colored material and its surroundings. The rover examined both areas with its Visible and Near-Infrared Spectrometer (VNIS), which detects light that is scattered or reflected off materials to reveal their makeup.

So far, mission scientists haven’t offered any indication as to the nature of the colored substance and have said only that it is “gel-like” and has an ­“unusual color.” One possible explanation, outside researchers suggested, is that the substance is melt glass created from meteorites striking the surface of the moon.

Even though I can’t really see what they’re talking about in this particular photo.

Gel-like?! Really?!

Does “gel-like” mean something got lost in translation, or, does it mean just what it says?

And if it does mean gel-like… then, whoa!

Fascinating stuff.

 

 

dragonflyI can’t wait to see the results of this mission on my screen! It’s gonna be good! Long time to wait, though, eh.

NASA Will Fly Quadcopter On Saturn’s Largest Moon Looking For Signs Of Life

The quadcopter will be looking for prebiotic chemical processes common on both Titan and Earth. Dragonfly will be the first time NASA operates a multi-rotor vehicle for space exploration on another planet; it is classified as rotorcraft, has eight rotors and flies like a drone. Flying will be difficult and will use a lot of energy. This is because of Titan’s atmosphere is four times thicker than Earth’s.

Sometime in 2034, Dragonfly will land at the equatorial “Shangri-La” dune fields, which are similar to dunes in Namibia in southern Africa. For the next three years, Dragonfly will leapfrog around the moon, 5 miles at a time. At the end of its mission, it will reach the Selk impact crater, where there could be evidence of water and possible life.

I expect they want a safe landing spot thus what they are calling a desert is their first drop off point?
www.zerohedge.com…

www.nasa.gov…

NASA has announced that our next destination in the solar system is the unique, richly organic world Titan. Advancing our search for the building blocks of life, the Dragonfly mission will fly multiple sorties to sample and examine sites around Saturn’s icy moon.

Dragonfly will launch in 2026 and arrive in 2034. The rotorcraft will fly to dozens of promising locations on Titan looking for prebiotic chemical processes common on both Titan and Earth. Dragonfly marks the first time NASA will fly a multi-rotor vehicle for science on another planet; it has eight rotors and flies like a large drone. It will take advantage of Titan’s dense atmosphere – four times denser than Earth’s – to become the first vehicle ever to fly its entire science payload to new places for repeatable and targeted access to surface materials.

Titan is an analog to the very early Earth, and can provide clues to how life may have arisen on our planet. During its 2.7-year baseline mission, Dragonfly will explore diverse environments from organic dunes to the floor of an impact crater where liquid water and complex organic materials key to life once existed together for possibly tens of thousands of years. Its instruments will study how far prebiotic chemistry may have progressed. They also will investigate the moon’s atmospheric and surface properties and its subsurface ocean and liquid reservoirs. Additionally, instruments will search for chemical evidence of past or extant life.

“With the Dragonfly mission, NASA will once again do what no one else can do,” said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine.

America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilisation, by Graham Hancock

GrahamHancockDotCom
Published on Aug 9, 2019

Graham Hancock’s new book, published 2019, is the New York Times top 10 nonfiction bestseller “America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilization”. From March through June 2019, Graham toured widely in the UK, the US and Canada, speaking about the book. The talk, offered free-to-view here, is the only version that will be available online and was given in Graham’s hometown, Bath, on Saturday April 6th 2019. The event organiser was Toppings Books and the venue was Christ Church, Julian Road, Bath. Graham’s daughter, Shanti Faiia, formerly a lawyer, now a healer and yoga teacher, sings the song “Waiting on an Angel” in the opening 5 minutes before the talk begins. More on Shanti’s work here: www.shantifaiia.com/. More on “America Before” here: . Graham’s website here: grahamhancock.com/. facebook Twitter

Videography and video editing by Luke Hancock

Was an advanced civilization lost to history in the global cataclysm that ended the last Ice Age? Graham Hancock, the internationally bestselling author, has made it his life’s work to find out — and in America Before he draws on the latest archaeological and DNA evidence to bring his quest to a stunning conclusion.

Hancock’s research takes us on a series of journeys and encounters with the scientific rebels responsible for the recent extraordinary breakthroughs. In the process, from the Mississippi Valley to the Amazon rainforest, he reveals that ancient ‘New World’ cultures share a legacy of advanced scientific knowledge and sophisticated spiritual beliefs with supposedly unconnected ‘Old World’ cultures.

Have archaeologists focussed for too long only on the ‘Old World’ in their search for the origins of civilization while failing to consider the revolutionary possibility that those origins might in fact be found in the ‘New World’? ‘America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilisation’ is the culmination of everything that millions of readers have loved in Hancock’s body of work over the past decades, namely a mind-dilating exploration of the mysteries of the past, amazing archaeological discoveries and profound implications for how we lead our lives today.

I was fortunate enough to catch Graham giving this lecture at a lovely church in the east SoHo. It was wonderful and revealed much more new info than I ever expected.

It all started here!

That is HUGE.

 

 

NASA’s Alien Anomalies caught on film – A compilation of stunning UFO footage from NASA’s archives

LunaCognita
Published on Mar 24, 2009

This compilation includes many of my favorite NASA UFO encounters/sightings that I have archived over the years. All of these examples (with the exception of the second-to-last one) were captured on film by NASA astronauts or Russian Cosmonauts over the past half-century – showing many amazing examples from different eras – Gemini, Apollo, Apollo/Soyuz Test Project, Skylab, STS, the ISS, plus a couple Russian-source additions from their unmanned Zond and Mir Space Station programs as well thrown in to round things out.

The second last example is the only one in the compilation that features footage that was not taken in space and is not official-source (NASA or Soviet/Russian Space Agency). That clip shows an LTP (Lunar Transient Phenomenon) event captured through a camera connected to the eyepiece of a terrestrial-based telescope that luckily was being focused on the Moon at the time. In this case, the LTP manifests as an object transiting across the face of the lunar disc. Many thanks to amateur astronomer Alberto Mayer of Italy for doing a wonderful job of filming this stunning event (and for stacking the footage for us all to see).

While the examples you will see here captured on film can all be “officially” classified as “unidentified” objects, that absolutely does NOT mean that NASA, the DoD, and certain elements within the scientific community worldwide are completely in the dark as to what these things you are seeing are. Make no mistake: The Powers That Be are indeed aware of far more about our mysterious Universe than they are ever willing to admit to us. We, the plebeian masses of this planet, are being held in a state of enforced ignorance, deemed not worthy of knowing the full truth by those who are REALLY “running the show” down here on Earth. As this video shows over and over again however, there are indeed snippets of that amazing truth that have been left scattered about the official government archives over the decades, there for us to find so we may begin to educate ourselves about what is the most monumental coverup in human history – where the only thing more incredible than the lies is the truth!

Also, be sure to check out Jose Escamilla’s new motion picture documentary “MOON RISING,” where we go into much further depth about what is, without exaggeration, the most monumental coverup in human history. You have NO idea what you have been missing!

Luna! Great guy! We were buds years back, but I said stuff abot José, so, it faded out. I’ve put his Alien in quotes, because, well, that’s a jump, but, still, some of them certainly do make one wonder.

Bigfoot screams Sierra Nevada, July 1, 2019

Paranormal Central
Published on Jul 12, 2019

My family and I returned to a spot where we went camping last year. No reason on the spot, The wife just found this location on maps. Last year, as we slept, my 12 year old son woke up to something slapping our trailer. As he was looking up at the window thru the blinds, he saw something very big walk by the window covering the whole window.. from the ground to the top of the window is 7 feet.. it scared him so bad he jumped in bed with us crying hysterically. So we decided to go back, but this time with my sound equipment.. All we were hoping was to get some wood knocks. Well, we got more than that… it went on for a little more than 9 minutes. Needless to say, we will never forget that night…

I am going to need to listen to this a few more times. Yes.

These screams, after just this first listen, are some of the strangest sounds I’ve clapped ears on. Quite a lot of them don’t sound much like screams to my mind. As of now. I am at a loss for words to describe them, even. Tomorrow, when I’m less pooped.

Is it … singing? Is it a concert? Of sorts?

That would be strange.

Interesting discussion going on here.

 

 

These are among my favorite photographs of all time. I loved them years ago and they still command my awe and wonder.

Here they are now, from the archives of the wonderful Soviet Moon Images website, still up after all these years:

Luna-13
On December 24, 1966, Luna-13 made the second Soviet landing on the Moon. It transmitted 5 cycloramas over a period of several days (note shadows becoming less elongated).

These are huge so click em to see them full size. In the past, due to my senior moments I have referred to these images as being from the Lunakhod mission(s), but they are not, they are from Luna, which took place well before Lunakhod. So embarrassing.

Once we finally get up there again, I would urge those lucky enough to be there to inspect this site. It will be profound … of this I am certain and I just feel it in my bones.

My question remains the same, however. What are these things. I have, in the past, spent many hours repeatedly looking over the exploded drawings of and the engineering plans for this craft. The result of all that looking was and remains that the objects of interest that appear in these images are simply not parts of the Luna-13 spacecraft. Seriously. They are not.

Let this sink in.

Somewhere amongst the rubble is a CD by these guys that I got at an INFO conference many, many moons ago.

Here is the basic story of the recordings:

The Bigfoot Recordings – A True High Sierra Wilderness Story

Challenged by skeptics, but time-tested by scientific analysis, these accounts bring to the reader an exciting report of unsurpassed vocal interaction between humans and Bigfoot. Recorded on reel-to-reel tape in 1972-74 at the famous Sierra Camp in California. Take the journey into this unsurpassed phenomenon and decide for yourself; is Bigfoot real, or just the product of a colorful imagination.

Volume 1 CD is 40 minutes. Produced in 1996 by Ron Morehead, it features very clear vocalizations captured in 1972 by Alan Berry, the investigative reporter brought into camp. Narrated by Jonathan Frakes (Commander William T. Riker) of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” fame.

Volume 2 CD is 40 minutes. Produced in 2003. Written, produced and narrated by Ron Morehead. It features rhythmic rapping-pounding sounds, and almost understandable phrases emanating from these creatures. The very same sounds that have been thoroughly analyzed by a former military cryptologic linguist as having a discernible language!

Send Me An Angel: Bizarre Atmospheric Phenomenon Caught on Camera in Brazil

© Photo: YouTube / Disclose Screen ‘The Grimreefar’    VIRAL 23:13 13.08.2019

The massive shining figure was recorded soaring in a cloudy sky, changing direction but retaining its bizarre shape. It is unclear whether the filmed object is an energy source or a remarkable light refraction.

A strange and unique atmospheric phenomenon was caught on camera in Brazil. A video uploaded by a UFO hunter who goes under the name of Disclose Screen “the Greemreefar” shows a T-shaped shining object in the cloudy sky, which roughly resembles an angel in a long robe.

“It looks like light refraction but then again it looks like some type of energy source,” the cameraman says on the video. “It’s even got the harmonious appearance of an angel.”

The T-shaped object remains in motion for a period of time, moving from one cloud to another, changing angle and direction.

People commenting on the video which was posted Monday found the figure to also resemble a dragon.

The nature of the phenomenon remains unclear. Several conjoined ball lightning spheres, however unlikely, could be one possible explanation.

Fascinating! Much more so than the “B.V. Mary” sighting a little while ago. Because it hangs out and moves on the clouds.

Could this be a plasma lifeform in a rare visible state? It needs to be considered. Research has shown that plasma will act in ways that are indicative of life as we know it. That was at a time around Einstein’s early days. I have long been a proponent of plasma life. It just seems so logical. And there is such good evidence pointing in that direction.

A peculiar phenomenon was recently observed in the skies above Amsterdam just as a tornado swept across the city centre last week.

A video uploaded on YouTube channel Mavi777, depicts what appears to be a strange glowing object soaring in the sky near the top of the swirling column, with a caption claiming that the footage was recorded on 10 August. The veracity of the video could not be immediately confirmed.

I’ve always liked these storm chaser FOs. They’ve been recorded so many times now.

These objects could well be living plasmoids, too, perhaps feeding off the crumbs of the storm’s energies.

Ah, who knows, eh!

They’re nice to look at, these things, nice to wonder about.

Goliath’s True Hometown Found? Lost 3,000-year-old Philistine City Emerges Beneath Gath

Massive fortifications hidden beneath previously excavated settlement in southern Israel may have inspired biblical traditions about Goliath and other hulks

Archaeologists excavating the ancient Philistine city of Gath have uncovered massive 3,000-year-old fortifications of a size unprecedented for their time and place. The discovery could help explain why the Bible names this town as a home to giants, the researchers say.

The monumental ruins emerged in recent months beneath the remains of a later and already well-explored layer of the Philistine settlement, indicating that researchers have stumbled upon an older city that was partially or completely built over by subsequent generations.

If Goliath did once exist, his hometown would apparently have been this earlier city, not the one under archaeological investigation for decades.

The discovery suggests that Gath was at the peak of its power much earlier than previously thought, putting its heyday around the time when the city features heavily in the biblical narrative as a fierce rival of the early Israelites as well as the hometown of Goliath and other outsized biblical warriors.

“I’ve been digging here for 23 years, and this place still manages to surprise me,” says Aren Maeir, a professor of archaeology at Bar-Ilan University who leads the expedition in Gath. “All along we had this older, giant city that was hiding just a meter under the city we were digging.”

Located in southern Israel, the site is known today as Tell es-Safi. As the name suggests, it is a tell – a mound largely made up of the stratified ruins of multiple settlements left over by millennia of human habitation.

Finds at Tell es-Safi range from remains dated to the 5th millennium B.C.E. to a medieval Crusader castle and a modern Arab village destroyed in Israel’s 1948 War of Independence. Most scholars accept the identification of this site as the biblical Gath, in large part because of its location and the major Philistine-era remains found there.

Gath is mentioned in the Bible more times than any of the five major Philistine cities (the other four being Ekron, Ashdod, Ashkelon and Gaza). Gath is said to have hosted the Ark of the Covenant for a brief time after the Philistines captured it from the Israelites (1 Samuel 5:8) and it is where David sought refuge twice from king Saul, eventually becoming a mercenary for the city’s ruler, Achish (1 Samuel 21 and 1 Samuel 27).

A hidden city emerges

Archaeologists have been digging Philistine Gath for decades, uncovering temples, mud brick houses and massive oil presses that paint the picture of a bustling city sprawling over 500 dunams (50 hectares) with a population of around 5,000-10,000.

“This was the largest Philistine city and probably one of the largest in the Iron Age Levant,” Maeir says. “Larger cities were only found outside the Levant, such as in Egypt and Mesopotamia.”

Those Philistine remains were dated to a period called the Iron Age IIA, roughly from the end of the 10th century B.C.E. to the late ninth century B.C.E., when the city was destroyed in a conflagration, probably in the conquest of the area by the Aramean king Hazael around 830 B.C.E. – an event recorded in the Bible (2 Kings 12:17). Gath never recovered from that blow: it was later rebuilt as a small Judahite settlement but was destroyed again by the Assyrians at the end of the eighth century B.C.E.

Until now, researchers thought that Philistine Gath flourished mainly during that fairly brief window between the late 10th century B.C.E. and Hazael’s arrival, even though that period is a bit later than most of the biblical stories in which the city features. (If we trust the biblical chronology, Saul and David, who so frequently had dealings with the Gittites, would have lived in the late 11th-early 10th centuries B.C.E.)

Giants. Love giants. We’ve had tons of magically disappearing giant skeletons and their their giant accessories … and now, thank God, we get giant buildings! Yay. Not so easily disappeared, eh.

How sweet it is.

I still have no clue as to why the species of giant human that seemed to reside world-wide remains secreted away and not talked of except those rare truth seekers who are marginalized.

It’s just wrong and may this discovery open the floodgates!

 

 

oily critter

I stumbled across this the other day and it made me smile. Because I remember. This is a tiny crop from a picture the had this person and a co-worker posing at the side of a dark vat at a facility (something to do with water, I think?), which had gone all wonky.

This lovely creature was found swimming all alone in that vat of God-knows-what oily, nasty concoction and was reportedly unidentified.

Right up my alley! This was somewhere in the United States, I’d say 70s or 80s. Wish I still had my photographic memory. Sigh.

Naturally there was never a follow up to the story.

I hate when that happens.

 

 

This makes my heart sing!

What a beautiful thing this is to see and hear.

 

 

I find this case to be absolutely fascinating and just had to share it with thee and thine and with thy mind. Yup, it’s neat.

I just saw an interesting YouTube video clip on reddit and decided to check out the original source.

The edited clip, posted on reddit here, was credited to UFOvni2012, a YouTube channel that posts videos on astronomy and astrophotography. This person also posts a lot of photos and video clips of anomalies on the Moon’s surface, that he claims are either “alien structures,” or “alien craft.” I checked out a few of those videos and I think he overreaches on his conclusions concerning these anomalies…probably for views. However, he does have some interesting clips of orbs/UAPs that appear on the Moon’s surface.

This particular object, suddenly appears over the Moon’s surface. At first, I thought that it was just some sort of luminous gas exhaust from an underground vent, but then, the UAP does appear to move. If this object was just a capture of a satellite in Earth’s orbit, or of a bird in flight at night, it wouldn’t appear to be stationary. Instead, it would be seen as a small, dark object that’s moving in front of the Moon’s field of view, like what’s shown in the following clips:

However, this object is luminous and at first remains static, before it starts to move. Here’s a screen shot of the object from the original video clip. In the upper right is a superimposed close up.

This has really put a tight grip on my grey matter.

Having said that, I am referring to the object featured out in the second video and referenced with timestamps in the first. I am not supporting the so-called “alien structures” in any way, shape or form. Silliness, to the max. There is no resolution available yo support those claims and there are, of course, hi-res photos of the area available from NASA from various missions and craft. And no one has said a word.

Anyway…

It just appears, as if by wizardry. Or, rather, it’s luminosity just appears, as if, to get all anthropomorphic, it just got “turned on.” And then… it just sits there. For a good, long while. This is not the behavior of the latest hoax project of some basement dwelling kid. The flickering it displays is a bit odd to my neurons, but not awfully so. Can’t think of a good cause for it except sputtering exhaust. There are, actually, comments that it might be gas escaping and somehow being excited into luminosity, which is quite plausible.

But, it stays coherent and…

… it starts to move!

In a way that gas venting from the surface is not going to be able to do, in reference to the subsequent path that’s taken by the light.

Still flickering, it travels at a moderate pace in a reasonably straight line at what appears to be level flight, in front of the little crater it first appeared next to, following along what looks like a ridge line. It then stops and seems to “shut off.”

But…

Regarding the shutting down of the flickering light, note that in the big inset in the top video, which is (said to be the original), I note what seems to be non-luminous “roiling,” of the surface, or the object, between 4:38 and 4:59.

I dearly wish that the resolution was much higher. Even with a 4K sensor, there just aren’t enough pixels on duty in this tiny section of the frame. Everything is just a blur. Ha! Like the old days! But these shots wouldn’t have been possible not that long ago. Perhaps a more powerful eyepiece for his video camera to peer through. Then again, big scopes are big money. Hey, 8K will be the norm soon.

Exceptionally intriguing.

Tell me, what do you think of this? Please leave a comment, as I would love to know your thoughts on this.

It does look a bit hoaxy. For all the reasons discussed in the video. But who knows. At the same time it looks like it just might be real. But I am leaning the other way. Hopefully some good photos will turn up.

The only real dogman photo that I know of is the Beast of Seven Chutes image. There was no thought of any creature in the taking of it, just awe at the natural landscape.

Just thought I’d throw this in here, rather than my “interesting rocks” thread, since it doesn’t really have to do with rocks. Anyway, here’s a .gif made with some Curiosity Right Navcam images taken 13 seconds apart. Unfortunately, it appears that the Left Navcam apparently wasn’t taking pictures at the time. I guess they don’t do that all the time anymore. Anyway, it’s like that bright spot that showed up on one of the images a few weeks back, except that it’s black and kind of looks like one of those “tic-tac” deals that are so popular these days.

Aerial anomalies on Mars are a treat for me.

This one, of course, since it’s only on one frame from one camera, could be the old cosmic ray strike and that’s been trotted out for it. Of course.

But, then again, it doesn’t really look like a cosmic ray strike, so… who knows what it is?

Naturally, my preference is a device of some sort. Or, even better, a critter! Now, that’s unlikely!

Which leads all the way back to my yoot, when a glowing orange aerial anomaly first triggered my deep interest in all things Forteana.

I love this stuff…

And, again, as noted, it really doesn’t look like a cosmic ray strike. Just look at that shape. Ya dig? Seriously, now.

Dig it.

Bird three times larger than ostrich discovered in Crimean cave

First evidence that giant ostrich-like birds once roamed Europe

Date: June 26, 2019
Source: Taylor & Francis Group
Summary: A surprise discovery in a Crimean cave suggests that early Europeans lived alongside some of the largest ever known birds, according to new research published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.

FULL STORY

A surprise discovery in a Crimean cave suggests that early Europeans lived alongside some of the largest ever known birds, according to new research published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.

It was previously thought that such gigantism in birds only ever existed on the islands of Madagascar and New Zealand as well as Australia. The newly-discovered specimen, discovered in the Taurida Cave on the northern coast of the Black Sea, suggests a bird as giant as the Madagascan elephant bird or New Zealand moa. It may have been a source of meat, bones, feathers and eggshell for early humans.

“When I first felt the weight of the bird whose thigh bone I was holding in my hand, I thought it must be a Malagasy elephant bird fossil because no birds of this size have ever been reported from Europe. However, the structure of the bone unexpectedly told a different story,” says lead author Dr Nikita Zelenkov from the Russian Academy of Sciences.

“We don’t have enough data yet to say whether it was most closely related to ostriches or to other birds, but we estimate it weighed about 450kg. This formidable weight is nearly double the largest moa, three times the largest living bird, the common ostrich, and nearly as much as an adult polar bear.”

It is the first time a bird of such size has been reported from anywhere in the northern hemisphere. Although the species was previously known, no one ever tried to calculate the size of this animal. The flightless bird, attributed to the species Pachystruthio dmanisensis, was probably at least 3.5 metres tall and would have towered above early humans. It may have been flightless but it was also fast.

While elephant birds were hampered by their great size when it came to speed, the femur of the current bird was relatively long and slim, suggesting it was a better runner. The femur is comparable to modern ostriches as well as smaller species of moa and terror birds. Speed may have been essential to the bird’s survival. Alongside its bones, palaeontologists found fossils of highly-specialised, massive carnivores from the Ice Age. They included giant cheetah, giant hyenas and sabre-toothed cats, which were able to prey on mammoths.

Other fossils discovered alongside the specimen, such as bison, help date it to 1.5 to 2 million years ago. A similar range of fossils was discovered at an archaeological site in the town of Dmanisi in Georgia, the oldest hominin site outside Africa. Although previously neglected by science, this suggests the giant bird may have been typical of the animals found at the time when the first hominins arrived in Europe. The authors suggest it reached the Black Sea region via the Southern Caucasus and Turkey.

The body mass of the bird was reconstructed using calculations from several formulae, based on measurements from the femur bone. Applying these formulae, the body mass of the bird was estimated to be around 450kg. Such gigantism may have originally evolved in response to the environment, which was increasingly arid as the Pleistocene epoch approached. Animals with a larger body mass have lower metabolic demands and can therefore make use of less nutritious food growing in open steppes.

“The Taurida cave network was only discovered last summer when a new motorway was being built. Last year, mammoth remains were unearthed and there may be much more to that the site will teach us about Europe’s distant past,” says Zelenkov.

This is FABULOUS news! Huge birds are so awesome! And so dangerous!

Whee!

I got turned onto this by a post by Corinna somewhere at the Centre for Fortean Zoology, facebook, maybe, which I cannot find the link for. So Frustrating.

One of the first up-close anomalies ever received from Mars — and to this day one of the most intriguing. NASA says it’s nowt more than a bit if cloth from the landing balloons just passing through in the breeze. Yeah. Right.

I have always maintained that that attempt was just beyond ludicrous, a modern day ‘swamp gas’ salute. Only one of the appendages moves with said ’breeze.’ It simply doesn’t add up. Let’s just say that I would be even more surprised to learn that it was a piece of the airbag than if it was a living creature.

 

 

Monster Bird on the loose in Scotland leaving victims drenched in blood

Warning Graphic Images. A Russian man looking like a living corpse has been rescued from a bear den after he claims the animal broke his back and left him there for a month. The man, who identified himself only as Alexander, was discovered by hunting dogs in Russia’s remote Tuva region, close to the border with Mongolia, local media says. #BBR #BBRUK

I can only say wow. What a jaw-dropping story. Can you imagine? Waiting to be eaten!

 

 

ref750

Audio Research REF750
Monoblock Amplifier Pair

Retail Price: $55,000.00

The Reference 750 is prepared to deliver 750 watts of power into speaker loads of 4, 8 and 16 ohms. This is achieved by the use of a massive, custom-built power transformer delivering current from sixteen KT120 vacuum tubes. Thanks to extensive testing and strict selection of tubes, the amplifier requires little maintenance and obviates the need for costly and sonically deleterious automatic bias systems. Power supply regulation is also achieved by vacuum tube with a 6550WE and 6H30 driver. The bulk power supply energy storage has been increased to 1300 joules, a 30% increase over the preceding REF610T. Tube bias is controlled by two KT120 tubes, each driving a bank of eight tubes.

Power output 750 watts per channel continuous from 20Hz to 20kHz. 1kHz total harmonic distortion typically 0.5% at 750 watts, below .04% at 1 watt.
Approximate actual power available at “clipping” 850 watts (1kHz). (Note that actual power output is dependent upon both line voltage and “condition” i.e.: if power line has high distortion, maximum power will be affected adversely, although from a listening standpoint this is not very critical.)
Power bandwidth (-3dB points) 15Hz to 150kHz.
Frequency response (-3dB points at 1 watt) 1 Hz to 200 kHz.
Input sensitivity 4.6V RMS Balanced for rated output. (24 dB gain into 8 ohms.)
Input impedance 200K ohms Balanced.
Output taps 4, 8, 16 ohms.
Output regulation Approximately 0.5dB 16 ohm load to open circuit.
Overall negative feedback 13dB
Damping factor Approximately 17
Distortion
Slew rate 20 volts/microsecond
Rise time 1.5 microseconds
Hum & noise Less than 0.2mV RMS – 110dB below rated output (IHF-A weighted, input shorted, 16 ohm output).
Power supply energy storage Approximately 1300 joules.
Power requirements 105-130VAC 60Hz (260-750VAC 50Hz) 2100 watts at rated output, 2400 watts maximum, 800 watts at “idle”.
Tube complement (8) Matched pairs KT120 Power Output; (1) 6550WE Regulator; (1) 6H30 Regulator Amplifier; (1) matched pair KT120 Driver; (1) 6H30 follower.
Other
Dimensions 13.5″ (34.3 cm) W x 23″ (58.4 cm) H x 20.8″ (52.8 cm) D. Handles extend 1.5″ (3.8 cm) forward and rearward.
Weight 170 lbs. (77.2 kg) Net; 395 lbs. (180 kg) per pair shipped weight.

Well, gosh. Pretty dreamy. So far out of reach that its nearly incomprehensible. But there are a lot of rather rich folks out there and these will sell out!

Just… wow.
