As my regular readers will know (all 6 of them), I have a dark penchant for the world of the unknown, but as a semi-scientist I always try to put my rampant eager beaver of a mind to bed early when it starts getting rattled by alien talk.There may well be life out there somewhere, we don’t know, has any of this life ever come to earth? Maybe a fungus or microbial organism attached to a rock? Maybe, that could have happened. Has a sentient alien being ever bothered to darken our shores across millenia of open space? That’s much, much, much less likely. Has a grey looking humanoid ever cut the gonads out of a cow, sucked up a fat red neck from the deep south and inserted bits and bobs up his passages, then deposited him back in his bed before his morning burger? Now that really is unlikely.
I found this video, originally posted in September 2012 that purports to being some sort of UFO portal or something over the HAARP scientific facility in the Arctic. My gut reaction is that it’s either a cool cloud formation that’s been doctored in Photoshop, or it’s a normal cloud formation that’s been doctored in Photoshop. See what you think. I reckon you might agree. It looks awesome though.
The High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program or HAARP for short is getting quite a bit of heat in regards to UFO shizzle at the moment. So what’s HAARP? Well, it’s a project set up to study the ionosphere for communication purposes, both military and civilian i.e. improving or destroying communication depending on who’s using it.
So, what’s the ionosphere? It’s the bit of atmosphere that goes from 80-180km above our dirty little planet. Because there’s not much gas that high up, and hence very little pressure, some electrons are free to roam before they find other ions, this means plasma can sometimes be found, which sounds cool, whatever it does. Some of the experiments will use an Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI) which operates at high frequency levels to excite the ionosphere and basically see what happens. Ruffles in the ionosphere disrupt communications with satellites so info on how to avoid/create it could be handy dandy.
It’s this IRI, specifically, that worries the conspiracy nuts. They say they are boiling the upper atmosphere, they say that “HAARP is the test run for a super-powerful radiowave-beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything — living and dead.” They blame it for natural disasters and all sorts, including “floods, droughts, hurricanes,thunderstorms, earthquakes in Pakistan, Haiti and the Philippines, major power outages, the downing of TWA Flight 800, Gulf War syndrome, and chronic fatigue syndrome.” Seems a bit far fetched to me. But, it’s a shame, conspiracy nuts have ruined it for themselves. They wine and wail about all sorts of jazz, one day they’ll actually get it right and we’ll poo-poo them out of hand. The boy who cried wolf and all that. Anyway, here’s a video of a still photo being ‘manipulated’. Looks cool, but nowhere near as cool as the research they are doing and planning.
Yeah, so pretty rubbish, right? Here’s a video with some more deets/ scaremongering if you can hack it?:
