NASA Project M

video


Could the U.S. put the first robot on the moon?

That is the goal of a small team of NASA scientists at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. As the world gears up for the launch of the Space Shuttle Discovery tomorrow with a humanoid robot ("robonaut") on board, another group of NASA scientists has proposed sending the same type of robot alone to the moon, in just 1,000 days. They call the idea Project M (M being the Roman numeral for 1,000).
As demonstrated in the concept video below, the robonot would travel to the moon on a small lander fueled by liquid methane and liquid oxygen, a cheap and lightweight fuel source. After landing, it could walk on the surface, perform some basic maintenance and construction duties, and test out student experiments.
Project M appears to have sprung out of some frustration over a lack of funding and bureacracy related to space research. Last fall, the Obama administration stopped funding the Houston center's ambitious Constellation project which would send more astronauts to the moon by 2020.
"We were frustrated. We saw what we had built and accomplished in the Engineering Directorate at JSC and knew we could do better. The talent was there; we just needed to unleash it," wrote project manager Matt Ondler on the Project M homepage.
The 1,000 day deadline is somewhat arbitrary, but as Ondler explained, the purpose is to complete the project before too many presidential administrations go by, thereby increasing the chance of its irrelevance.
The New York Times reports that Project M would cost no more than $450 million, a fraction of the $150 billion requested to send human astronauts to the moon.
A NASA spokeswoman said Project M was "just one of many ideas" floating around the center and has not been given authority to proceed, nor is there any active fundraising for the idea.

What is a Robonaut?


A Robonaut is a dexterous humanoid robot built and designed at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Our challenge is to build machines that can help humans work and explore in space. Working side by side with humans, or going where the risks are too great for people, Robonauts will expand our ability for construction and discovery. Central to that effort is a capability we call dexterous manipulation, embodied by an ability to use one's hand to do work, and our challenge has been to build machines with dexterity that exceeds that of a suited astronaut.
There are currently four Robonauts, with others currently in development. This allows us to study various types of mobility, control methods, and task applications. The value of a humanoid over other 


designs is the ability to use the same workspace and tools - not only does this improve efficiency in the types of tools, but also removes the need for specialized robotic connectors. Robonauts are essential to NASA's future as we go beyond low earth orbit and continue to explore the vast wonder that is space.
Robonaut 2 or R2, launched to the International Space Station on space shuttle Discovery as part of the STS-133 mission, it is the first dexterous humanoid robot in space, and the first US-built robot at the space station. But that was just one small step for a robot and one giant leap for robot-kind.
Initially R2 will be deployed on a fixed pedestal inside the ISS. Next steps include a leg for climbing through the corridors of the Space Station, upgrades for R2 to go outside into the vacuum of space, and then future lower bodies like legs and wheels to propel the R2 across Lunar and Martian terrain. A four wheeled rover called Centaur 2 is being evaluated at the 2010 Desert Field Test in Arizona as an example of these future lower bodies for R2.

In the current iteration of Robonaut, Robonaut 2 or R2, NASA and General Motors are working together with assistance from Oceaneering Space Systems engineers to accelerate development of the next generation of robots and related technologies for use in 

R2 20 pound weight, Robonaut 
the automotive and aerospace industries. Robonaut 2 (R2) is a state of the art highly dexterous anthropomorphic robot. Like its predecessor Robonaut 1 (R1), R2 is capable of handling a wide range of EVA tools and interfaces, but R2 is a significant advancement over its predecessor. R2 is capable of speeds more than four times faster than R1, is more compact, is more dexterous, and includes a deeper and wider range of sensing. Advanced technology spans the entire R2 system and includes: optimized overlapping dual arm dexterous workspace, series elastic joint technology, extended finger and thumb travel, miniaturized 6-axis load cells, redundant force sensing, ultra-high speed joint controllers, extreme neck travel, and high resolution camera and IR systems. The dexterity of R2 allows it to use the same tools that astronauts currently use and removes the need for specialized tools just for robots.
One advantage of a humanoid design is that Robonaut can take over simple, repetitive, or especially dangerous tasks on places such as the International Space Station. Because R2 is approaching human dexterity, tasks such as changing out an air filter can be performed without modifications to the existing design.
Another way this might be beneficial is during a robotic precursor mission. R2 would bring one set of tools for the precursor mission, such as setup and geologic investigation. Not only does this improve efficiency in the types of tools, but also removes the need for specialized robotic connectors. Future missions could then supply a new set of tools and use the existing tools already on location

Mission to the International Space Station


R2 ISS Mission Patch, Robonaut Patch


On February 24th 2011, NASA launched the first human-like robot to space to become a permanent resident of the International Space Station. Robonaut 2, or R2, was developed jointly by NASA and General Motors under a cooperative agreement to develop a robotic assistant that can work alongside humans, whether they are astronauts in space or workers at GM manufacturing plants on Earth.
 The 300-pound R2 consists of a head and a torso with two arms and two hands. R2 will launch on space shuttle Discovery as part of the STS-133 mission planned for February 24th. Once aboard the station, engineers will monitor how the robot operates in weightlessness. Throughout its first decade in orbit, the space station has served as a test bed for human and robotic teamwork for construction, maintenance and science.

R2 will be confined to operations in the station's Destiny laboratory. However, future enhancements and modifications may allow it to move more freely around the station's interior or outside the complex.

"This project exemplifies the promise that a future generation of robots can have both in space and on Earth, not as replacements for humans but as companions that can carry out key supporting roles," said John Olson, director of NASA's Exploration Systems Integration Office at NASA Headquarters in Washington. "The combined potential of humans and robots is a perfect example of the sum equaling more than the parts. It will allow us to go farther and achieve more than we can probably even imagine today."

The dexterous robot not only looks like a human but also is designed to work like one. With human-like hands and arms, R2 is able to use the same tools station crew members use. In the future, the greatest benefits of humanoid robots in space may be as assistants or stand-in for astronauts during spacewalks or for tasks too difficult or dangerous for humans. For now, R2 is still a prototype and does not have adequate protection needed to exist outside the space station in the extreme temperatures of space.

Testing the robot inside the station will provide an important intermediate environment. R2 will be tested in microgravity and subjected to the station's radiation and electromagnetic interference environments. The interior operations will provide performance data about how a robot may work side-by-side with astronauts. As development activities progress on the ground, station crews may be provided hardware and software to update R2 to enable it to do new tasks.

R2 is undergoing extensive testing in preparation for its flight. Vibration, vacuum and radiation testing along with other procedures being conducted on R2 also benefit the team at GM. The automaker plans to use technologies from R2 in future advanced vehicle safety systems and manufacturing plant applications.

"The extreme levels of testing R2 has undergone as it prepares to venture to the International Space Station are on par with the validation our vehicles and components go through on the path to production," said Alan Taub, vice president of GM's global research and development. "The work done by GM and NASA engineers also will help us validate manufacturing technologies that will improve the health and safety of our GM team members at our manufacturing plants throughout the world. Partnerships between organizations such as GM and NASA help ensure space exploration, road travel and manufacturing can become even safer in the future."

The Ossama Hoax, Bin Laden is dead a long time ago !



In recent days we have been confronted with the news of the death of Osama Bin Laden, of course the media did an authentic feast media and in the end got me a huge impression that the story once again was very poorly told, since the 1st photo widespread the supposed corpse of Bin Laden, from the supposed confirmation by DNA only tells us that this alleged DNA was of somebody's family, to the supposed body lying on the high seas ... All this bodes very badly, it's very convenient or doubtful. In search of truth have decided to publish an article. When searching the Internet I found an article that is very similar to what we think about it with some minor details with which we disagree but overall it was exactly what we read on the Site Alles Schall und Rauch, so I decided to publish the article

And so goes humanity ...

A dead man is continually kept "alive" for there to be a scapegoat, justifying the endless "War on Terror."
Osama bin Laden died on December 16, 2001 in Afghanistan, probably of kidney and liver problems that haunted him for years. He had hepatitis C and had to be frequently hospitalized to undergo a hemodialysis.


last fotos of Ossama Bin Laden

His last picture, taken December 6, 2001, shows a very old man with a serious illness. According to experts of the CIA, bin Laden needed at the time of dialysis every three days and they said: "Of course it is very difficult when one must flee from one place to another and yet, as it would be possible for an operation in transportable equipment by their hideouts in the mountains? ". For comparison, a photo of the day, when he was still healthy.





There are many proofs and indications pointing to the fact that Bin Laden is dead long ago. Following the report about his funeral, published on December 26, 2001 in an Egyptian newspaper.


Here's the translation:
"Al-WAFS, Wednesday, December 26, 2001, Vol 15 No. 4633, news about the death of bin Laden and burial for 10 days. Islamabad-Pakistan. A top official of the Afghan Taleban movement announced yesterday the death of Osama bin Laden, the leader of the Al-Qaeda. He said, bin Laden suffered serious complications in the lungs and died peacefully of natural causes. The official, who demanded anonymity, told the newspaper 'The Observer' of Pakistan, who himself was present at the funeral and he had looked at his face before burial in Tora Bora 10 days ago. He said 30 of his fellow Al Qaeda were at the funeral, as well as members of his family and some friends of the Taliban. At the closing ceremony for the final resting place was a volley of shots. The official also said it would be difficult to find the exact location of the grave, because according to the Wahhabi tradition no mark indicates the location. He stressed it was unlikely that the U.S. military one day find a single clue to bin Laden.


Article about Ossama´s dead

Bin Laden was very ill and needed constant treatment and hemodialysis, this is shown in several articles on various stays in hospital during his last year of life. For example, July 4, 2001, bin Laden was treated in U.S. hospital emergency measures to Dubai and with an apparatus for hemodialysis (Guardian). During this treatment he received at the hospital to visit the local chief of the CIA and they chatted amiably. After all, Bin Laden was a CIA agent in the war against the Soviets in Afghanistan and operated under the codename "Tim Osman".


Just one day before the September 11, 2001, bin Laden went to the military hospital in Rawalpindi Pakistan, to undergo dialysis. Pakistani troops escort Bin Laden and replaced the staff of the clinic by people you trust (CBS). Is not it interesting that just on major terrorist attack against America, bin Laden was in the custody of the Pakistani military and just the week before and a week later, the head of the Pakistani secret service ISI General Mahmood Ahmed, was in Washington and spoke at the Pentagon with the National Security Council, then with the CIA director Tenet, the White House with people and with Marc Grossman, Deputy Secretary of State for Political Affairs (Karachi news).
This means that all parties knew where bin Laden was, and if the Americans really were of the view that bin Laden was the perpetrator of the attacks, then he would be handed over without a fight and they could have him arrested immediately in a hospital bed . But nothing like that happened. They let him return to Afghanistan after their treatment, where they then died several weeks later.
This behavior proves to any reasonable person that Bin Laden has nothing to do with September 11 and still prove that they created the world's media a scapegoat as the organizer of the attacks and super-terrorist. All this is a gigantic lie.
The September 17, 2001, the TV station Al Jazeera published a report of bin Laden, where he said he had nothing to do with September 11: "The U.S. government blames me continuously for each of the attacks. I would like to reassure the world, I did not plan these attacks, which seem to have been planned by others for personal reasons. I live in the Islamic Emirate Afghanistan and follow the rules of their rulers. The current rulers do not allow me to perform this operation. " (CNN)


Another proof that bin Laden has nothing to do with 9 / 11, is the news that Bin Laden chartered a plane, which took him out of the country all members of his family gathered around the states, just days after the attacks New York, September 19, 2001. Although there was now a complete ban on air traffic in the U.S., this flight was expressly authorized by the White House. No family member of bin Laden and other Saudi citizens were questioned or checked before takeoff.
The U.S. government says that 17 of the 19 terrorists from Saudi Arabia and just as citizens of this country wanted to leave the U.S. and still belonged to the Bin Laden family, they had written permission from Bush to go with this plane. (PDO)



The September 12, 2001, the ambassador of the Taliban in Afghanistan said about Bin Laden: "If the evidence is presented, then we will clears them. Then we will discuss an extradition. " (The Hindu) A few days later, the ambassador said: "Our position is this, if America has proof, we are ready to bring bin Laden to the courts under these tests." (CBS) These tests were never made available by the U.S. government.
The September 23, 2001, the then foreign minister, U.S., Colin Powell contradicted himself in tone and striking, the government would soon publish the documents of the security forces that would prove the guilt of Bin Laden. (Seattle) The evidence was never presented, six years after the attacks, and the world still waits for them.
The last issue to his lieutenants in Afghanistan was announced by the U.S. Secret Service to December 15, 2001. Since then no one heard his voice on a radio or telephone communication while the whole world is monitored by the NSA. If he still lived, so he had to communicate by some means and then would have been detected (Telegraph).
This is also the reason why the FBI did not put him on their wanted list. Asked why he is not wanted by the FBI because of 9 / 11, came the reply: "We have no evidence that bin Laden had anything to do with September 11." Here's my article about it.
But they not only have no proof of his own, as they also know that he died, then why should they seek it. Moreover, it is possible that the largest secret service in the world, the CIA, NSA, etc., with their unlimited resources and a budget of over 50 billion dollars annually, and above all the other allied intelligence services around the globe, as well as the entire apparatus of U.S. military with hundreds of thousands of soldiers searched every square mile of Afghanistan, and all of which is promised a reward of 25 million dollars, not in condition to find bin Laden in these legendary six years. This is not a total failure, otherwise the chairman would have to dismiss all the secret service and military command for incompetence, and not because Bin Laden is as smart and hides well, but they never find it, because Bin Laden is already dead for a long time - and they know it.



A little joke en passant, 25 million seems a lot to Bin Laden, but the transfer Baseball Player Alex Rodriguez has cost about 252 million in 2001.
All this is a great theater and a show to keep the public in the orbit of artificial evil. If it is declared officially dead, then collapses the whole house of cards and why the "War on Terror." They would no longer have an enemy against which to fight, making it possible to make war, to suppress the freedom of citizens, strengthening the state police, to ensure their huge budgets and provide a huge profit conglomerates arms. The war measures and security are major businesses that exist, ie, the "Terror" can never stop, never can be peace, should be maintained the belief in ghost as much as possible.
Nor is noteworthy that President Bush has said about bin Laden in an interview to the press, March 13, 2001, asked by reporters: "I do not know where he is. And to be honest, I have no interest in it ", ie the demand for it is irrelevant. (WH) is also clear who would be interested in someone who has died and the real objective was not preparing the invasion of Iraq, this criminal war of aggression with invented motives (SPIN) to the American people, although he admitted that neither Saddam Hussein has something with the Sept. 11, nor there is any connection of Saddam with bin Laden. (BBC)
Bin Laden and his alleged terror network al-Qaeda are always remembered in time of need by Bush, Blair and all European politicians, when they want to put people in a state of fear and panic, in again when they want to restrict freedom.


BBC: Osama Bin Laden; Dead or Alive



Here are a few phrases of people who confirmed the death of bin Laden:

Pakistani President Musharraf: "I ​​believe that Bin Laden is probably dead, because he could not be continually treated her renal failure. " (CNN)

Afghan President Karzai: "Osama Bin Laden is probably dead, but former Taliban chief Mullah Omar are still alive. " (CNN)

The director of the anti-terror department of the FBI, Dale Watson: "I ​​believe that bin Laden is dead. " (BBC)

The chief editor of London-based Arab News Magazine: "We published the last wish of bin Laden that was written in late 2001 and show him as he lay dying or already dead. " (CNN)

The Israeli secret service: "We do not see Bin Laden as a danger and he is not on our list" (Janes) and also "Bin Laden probably died during the attacks on the Americans in December 2001. The emergence of new stories and pictures are probably a fabrication. "

The CIA announced July 3, 2006, The New York Times, she dismissed the department which dealt with bin Laden. The mission of the unit called "Alec Station" was closed last year and the agents tasked with new missions in the fight against terror.

Triangles of Death beyond Bermuda Part 2



Hazardous areas: Australia and New Zealand
The distance from the coast of Australia sudocidental in full Indian Ocean, is found a new zone "dangerous".
And almost over New Zealand, 62 ° to the east of the former, there is another. Since about a century ago have been collected testimonies of mysterious sights in the area.
The indefatigable Charles Fort, which is essential in their work on these issues, informs us of the older cases. All these cases relate to alleged "landing" in seas, rivers, lakes, etc ...



In his work know the testimonies offered by the crew of the brigantine "Ímnerwich" when traveling between Yokohama and Victoria (Australia), February 24, 1885. Previously, in 1881, two witnesses of privilege because they were the sons of Prince of Wales, found aboard the ship "La Bacchae" when sailing between Melbourne and Sydney, "a shining object completely."
The geography of New Zealand is very peculiar, consisting of two main islands and numerous small islands, some of them quite afar.
The South Island is the largest land mass and is divided along its length by the Southern Alps, whose highest peak is Mount Cook to 3754 m. In the South Island for eighteen peaks over three thousand meters of altitude.
The North Island is less mountainous than the South, but is marked by volcanism.
In the North Island's highest mountain, Mount Ruapehu (2797m) is an active cone volcano. The total area of ​​New Zealand, 270 500 km ² is slightly smaller than Japan or the British Isles, and slightly larger than Colorado in the U.S.. The country stretches over 1600 km along its main axis north-northeast.
The climate is mild with temperatures rarely below 0 ° C or above 30 º C. The average daily temperature in Wellington, the capital, located in central Iran, is 5.9 º C in winter and 20.3 º C in summer
Far from the nearest land, New Zealand is among the land masses of considerable size on the planet that you're more isolated. Its closest neighbors are Australia, northwest, and New Caledonia, Fiji and Tonga to the north.


Cases reported by Guieu
As to the most modern is the French researcher who Jimmy Guieu offers us abundant material.
For example, on July 14, 1959, according to testimony from some hunters on the island of Prince of Wales has produced the landing of a strange red object.
At the same time another group of witnesses reported seeing a similar object called Refuge in Karumba. Again on June 16, 1962 was again observed a new landing of another mysterious machine in silver, on the same island, on the side of a hill.
Also in the area of ​​New Zealand could be found cases of UFOs. On November 27, 1952 was seen by a pilot, about the area of ​​Nedim in the neighborhood of Auckland, a large object which emitted a bluish glow gray and flying at a speed estimated at 450 km / h.



UFO or USO´s?

But the most surprising incident that was produced in the region of Australia was the mysterious explosion registered on February 6, 1955 in Greymouth, while being observed in the sky a strange "bright spot".
The blast was so powerful it was heard throughout the south of the country.
To conclude this chapter we have to mention the cases of unidentified objects underwater. "
Although less numerous than the UFO cases, their presence in waters from these two areas has often been noted. The governments of these countries, as usually done, are trying to explain these observations as that of conventional devices. However, the naval and air authorities study and consider "seriously" the witness recalled.



USO´s abundant in 1965
The year 1965 was particurlamente "rich" in this type of incident. It was Mr. Henk Hinfelsar, founding member of New Zeeland Flying Saucer Research Society, to study these phenomena, who collected the largest number of cases and data, publishing them in February next year.
On January 12, 1965, a captain belonging to an airline that was flying in a DC-3, found in an estuary of the Kaipara Harbour (north of Helensville), at a height of 500 feet, a metal structure, that the principle was taken by a whale.
Looking more closely could set this object with the following characteristics: It was an object perfectly hydrodynamic and perfectly symmetrical. Did not have any protruding parts or superstructures.
And I seemed to distinguish a metal hatch on top, situated on the middle body of the object about. This rested on the bottom of the estuary, pointing south. His form was not that of a normal submarine. The captain estimated its length at about 30 meters with a diameter of 4.50 meters at its widest part.
The object, which could be seen very clearly, rested in a place where there was more than 10 meters deep.
Underwater investigations do not always give the positive result in the case of Bimini, in order to find under the waters of alleged construction debris.
In many cases, the seabed holds the deadly waters is no different in any other.


Submarines could not be


video
 
The testimony of the captain came to the attention of Naval Intelligence of his parents, who reported that the observed object can not be a conventional submarine, because thanks to the configuration of the coast and harbor estuaries were totally inaccessible to any known craft.
On April 11, 1965, some men who inspected a sunken boat on the beach at Wonthaggi, the 132 km from Melbourne, saw two aircraft at a distance of half a mile from shore, they began to sail out to sea, disappearing from his view, until that only showed their "towers", which made them realize that there were two submarines.
"A preliminary investigation of the report suggested that in view of the place and the configuration of the coast, these objects could not be underwater."
In a period of very few days, on April 15, 1965, observed three times a strange "submarine" north of Brisbane, just off the coast of Mooloolaba to Coolum.
Why take place in the waters of these two "triangles" such strange comings and goings of ships underwater?



The deadly triangle of the Pacific and South Africa
Relationship may exist between the plans of the ships and the submarine airships?
That year 1965 was produced the biggest wave of visions, was precisely the "opposition" or minimum distance between Mars and Earth, which occurred on March 12.




The
"deadly" triangles in the Pacific and South Africa

 
The "danger zone" of the North Pacific is forming the apex of an imaginary triangle whose other vertices are the coasts of California, the East and the Aleutian Islands, the Northwest.
Very near the Aleutian Islands, which belong administratively to Alaska, there is a large pit of deep sea, and in addition this chain of small islands has many volcanoes, some of them yet in operation.
A fracture zone that is mostly volcanic activity and large marine pits, similar to the area of ​​Devil's Sea, Japan, then we know that.
A case of the mysterious waters of the Pacific in March 1945, 14 American sailors transport "Delarof," U.S. Navy out of the sea saw a dark colored ball that, after a stroll around the ship, if flying away.
As for the South Pacific area, to be away from regular shipping lanes, little is known about what is happening there.
Is there any relationship with Easter Island?
What is certain is that this zone to the north, 27 ° 30 'south latitude, is Easter Island.
It has been reported on Easter Island that are serious magnetic disturbances that produce anomalies in the electronics and boats that are highlighted in all the charts.




UFOs in South Africa
Transferring to other waters, South Africa, Republic of South Africa, has been produced numerous UFO observations and many instances of "landing".
Undoubtedly, one of the best known was the observation of two South African army officers. On May 23, 1952, military authorities have pointed out, for six consecutive times, a strange craft that had flown over the Cape Peninsula at a speed of 2,000 mph and an altitude that ranged between 1,500 and 4,000 feet. The object, which was detected by the officers already mentioned, the radar could not be seen in the sky.
According to an order founded in Pretoria, a spokesman for the South African National Defence Services stated:
"We have accurate descriptions of a phenomenon seen by experienced officers, trained to imagine teleguided devices moving at high speed."
With respect to cases of "landing" of spacecraft, the incident serves as an example produced on September 15, 1965, in the town of Silverton. Two police officers who patrolled the road between Pretoria to Bronkhorstspruit discovered a copper-colored disk, and approximately 10 meters in diameter, which was posed in the middle road.
A few seconds after the arrival of the police against the machine, it took off at high speed in the middle of large flares.
Similar cases are produced almost continuously in the 12 "Triangle of Death" that sustains the planet. Little is yet known of what is really happening in outer space, air and waterway, sea, of our planet.
However, each day are more numerous researchers and authors on the phenomenon, despite the official silence systematically practiced in almost all countries.




The Mediterranean and the Canary Islands
Perhaps of all triangles that we learn the most interesting is, without doubt, the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands, the effects of the disappearances of ships and crews that have been produced to date.
The Mediterranean Sea is a sea of ​​the eastern Atlantic, between southern Europe, western Asia and northern Africa, with approximately 2.5 million square kilometers, is the largest inland sea waters of the Mediterranean Sea mundo.As bathe the three peninsulas Southern Europe (Iberian, Italic and Balkan) and an Asia that link with the Atlantic through the Strait of Gibraltar to the Black Sea (the straits of Bosporus and the Dardanelles), and the Red Sea (in Suez Canal)
This "deadly triangle" is comparable in all the large Bermuda Triangle.
Since the air patrols missing boats lost and abandoned were later located outside of your route marked.
Produced by the incidents and disappearances can be assumed that this zone exists several "black holes" in a section of the western Mediterranean, in the sky over Cordoba and Seville and near the Canary ..., beyond the massive Canigó zone and Roses -Gerona.


The sinking of the lobster "Maena"
The boating accident that raised most interest was the shipwreck in July 1964 in the waters of the Canaries, the lobster "Maena. This accident, with no logical explanation, claimed the lives of 16 fishermen islanders, which deeply touched the community and the local authorities. So reflected the local press, which published the news on August 8.
The history of this mystery, whose full investigation may never be known, began on July 27, 1964, when the station received an urgent message Arrecife of fishing "Saint Genevieve", stating that the water in the cab, a few miles Northern Cape Bojador had collected seven bodies, which were identified as crew of "Marna".
No rest more can be found in those waters. From that moment on, the stations broadcast messages from the archipelago to rescue can find some remains. The "Anifal" and other ships managed to find some more human remains, even on the African coast.


No possible explanation
Many versions tried to explain what happened. It is inadmissible to explain the cause of death by starvation of the sailors, without the addition can be explained the total disappearance of the boat. 'It is also disposable version of a possible explosion on board, because there are no signs of wounds or sores on their bodies found and the possible grounding of the boat, because the area was well known by sailors "Maena" which, as already stated, were fishermen and local experts. In the year 1972, the waters around the Canary Islands to be a new accident scenario.
The May 13 of that year met the press the news of the find, about a mile from Cape Bojador of a derelict.
The boat lost and abandoned were registered in France and was called "Progress". The authorities in charge of the Navy gave clear up the mystery insoluble by the investigation.


Submarines and aircraft missing

 
Very shortly after this incident in Canarian waters were produced similar ones in the Mediterranean area.
Thus, in 1975 was published the news of the disappearance of a boat, "Maribel Rivas," and its nine crew members.
The cargo ship sailed from the port of Castellon de la Plana on August 22, 1974, bound for the Libyan port of Benghazi, with a cargo of building materials. The crossing from Castellon to Libya used to be covered in nine or ten days.
No message was not received aid from the crew and all efforts made by the company that owns the vessel and the authorities resulted useless. Also been observed, "dangerousness" of another fateful route, which is linking the island of Mallorca and Menorca with Algeria, both by sea and by air.
Are already known cases of unexplained sinkings of ships that made this route and disappearances of airplanes.


one  of the lost subs 1n 1952 the "Sybil"


Many submarines lost ...
Loss of submarines, the western Mediterranean takes place in the first recorded cases, and the French waters the most "dangerous." And this tragic event has to be emphasized if we take into account the relatively small size of its sea and weather conditions more benign than those that prevail in the Atlantic and other major oceans.
Within the French waters, the area is where most of Tolón mysterious disappearances were produced. Forward to this zone extends at right angles to it, a series of canyons that reach more than 2,000 feet deep close to the coast.
In a period of twenty years have lost four French submarines in waters near the Gulf of Tolón: The "2326", disappeared in 1946: the "Sybil" in 1952, the "Minerve", on January 20, 1968, the while the Israeli submarine "Dakar", in the vicinity of Cyprus, and "Euridyce" on March 4, 1970.





And airplanes ...
The Triangle also in the Mediterranean has to do with his strange disappearances of aircraft. The first known case was produced in 1944, on July 31, when the eminent French writer Saint Exupéry took off his plane, a "Lightning", from Bastia in Corsica, to make a flight over the Mediterranean. Since that day may never know is nothing lucky about what happened to so famous pilot.
On September 5, 1948, Lancaster was lost a plane, with seven men who had taken off from Malta to perform some maneuvers in the Mediterranean.
Although accidents and disappearances of military and commercial aircraft in the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands seem to be produced by "gaps" would be endless in this space to list all registered cases. For that reason they, jumping in time, we recorded the most recent cases.
On September 18, 1974 has disappeared again, a military aircraft that had taken off from Jerez de la Frontera. Its eight crew members disappeared and was never able to locate the remains of the device.
A month later, in the zone of the Canary Islands, two planes disappeared Saeta C-10. Both planes pasted from Seville to go to the island of Lanzarote.


The massive Canigó, another tragic area
We mentioned earlier that another of the hot spots was the massive Canigó. Canigó Hill has 2785 meters and belongs to the Pyrenees mountain range, situated in the eastern part and in France.
It may be considered this area as the largest cemetery of airplanes in Europe. In the period of 1945-1967 were produced 11 air disasters.
In March 1945, a plane English, Liberator, in December 1950, a DC-3 Air Maroc, in February 1953, a French Nord-Atlas, in March 1955, a C-47 U.S., in July 1957, a French Nord-2051: In 1958, a French Broussard; in 1961, a DC-3 English, in 1963, a French military Constellation and a Viking Air N English, and in 1967, a DC-4 English. The total estimated victims in these accidents was 250 people.


Fairy Tales and the Devil's Sea

 
This zone extends between the Japanese islands and the Mariana Islands. And a region of large sea trenches and volcanic activity, as it is in the "Pacific ring of fire".
Since ancient times, this area is characterized by mystery, as a result of frequent volcanic eruptions that triggered often distressing tsunamis in the Japanese archipelago.
When submerged volcanic craters erupt, the sea rises and is caused tsunami, a tidal wave that sometimes reaches 30 meters in height.
The greatest tragedy that knows these waters was the total disappearance of the oceanographic ship "Kaiyō Maru" on September 24, 1952.
Perished in the accident 31 people, including renowned Japanese scientists who did precisely a study tour of the area.
Neither the remains of the freighter "Valiente"
Some years later, on March 7, 1966, the freighter disappeared "Valiente," which had sailed from Singapore en route to Danang, South Vietnam, carrying material for aviation in the United States, which controlled the area.
On March 14 last received a communication with the boat. The situation was normal, but suddenly disappeared. Neither the U.S. Seventh Fleet, which patrols or other left in its wake to find any kind of rest. But not only disappeared boats, were also produced as UFO sightings and the famous "phosphorescent wheels" of which we talked about when referring to the Triangle in the Persian Gulf.
An ancient Japanese legend
To finish with the "unique history" of the Devil's Sea we will refer to an ancient legend that circulates among the Japanese fishermen for centuries, but whose subject is not exclusively Japanese, as it is repeated in varied collection of tales world: is the theme Travel to a world where "time seems stopped." Tell the Japanese that a young fisherman named Urachima married the daughter of the Sea God, who was disenchanted. In reward for good deed of returning an old turtle to the sea and thus freeing the princess fell to the seabed to live in a palace.
But one day Urachima, despite being surrounded by the most fabulous treasures, felt desire to return to his home to visit his family. The princess, who has not been seen too complacent with the idea, gave her husband a box with the request that do not open ever again if he wanted to return to his palace.
When Urachima rose to the surface and addressed his people, may find that everything had changed in that he had only been for three years.
Can not find your house or your family.
Then he thought underwater palace where he had lived with the daughter of the Sea God should be in fairyland, where perhaps one day could be as long as one year from the outside world.
Magonia or Fairyland
He decided to return with his wife but did not know which way to go and opened the box to see was the answer. When the unfortunate opened the box, forgetting that the board had given him, began to transform itself into a very old who fell on the beach dying.
Magonia or fairyland, which is presented here in a world as coexistent parallel to ours.
Triangles can be death, as regularly distributed across the planet, tangential points or "gateways" to access other parallel worlds?
The data and evidence of all the mysterious cases that we mentioned are accumulated on the desks of researchers. Scientists deal more officers to ignore the issue or mute the little they know. While others say that "something" or "someone" could hide in the deep sea, precisely in these
"dangerous" areas, that we know.
