As you might have seen in the news recently, we’ve finally made one of the major breakthroughs that scientific minds and the like have been waiting for; we’ve discovered gravitational waves.
Gravitational waves are one of the most interesting theories in science and have been for some time, creating what many people thought of as the ‘next level’ for scientific discovery and improvement.
However, the discovery of gravitational waves is sending shockwaves through the scientific community as we’ve finally cracked the code! It’s now official – we live in a Universe which is loaded with gravitational waves. The announcement, made at the National Science Foundation [...]
Recently, we wrote an article about the fabled Dark Side of the Moon, what it means, and why China are looking to become the first country on the planet to get to this side of the moon and see it in the flesh.
However, another major factor that has been in the news for some time has been the discovery of “music” coming from the Dark Side of the Moon. Does this mean that when the Chinese arrive, they are likely to come into contact with an alien rock band?
Obviously not – however, the actual ramifications for hearing sound from one side of the moon has been massive from a scientific point of view. The reasons why and the excuses from those who want to disprove [...]
For years, the myth of the Dark Side of the Moon has been building. As one of the most interesting parts of many discussions to do with encountering other species and exploring space, the Dark side of the Moon is a topic of much consideration and discussion – and for good reason.
From being the home of an alien species to the “discovery” of massive items and buildings on the far side of the moon, more than set of theories exists about why it’s such a fabled piece of space history.
In recent times, though, its’ been the subject of far more discussion due to something a bit less outlandish. This is because China announced in early January that they would be showcasing a [...]
Look around long enough, and you can find that plenty of details exist about supposed intervention from other species, species far more advanced than our own. In an uncertain world where we seem to want to appoint ever-increasing lunatics and put them in charge of terrifying weapons of mass destruction, is there more to the idea of alien intervention other than to help people stay a bit more comfortable in their own minds?
Is it nothing more than a mechanism used to help try and avoid the negativity and the fear of potential long-term damage to the planet by ourselves?
Really, it’s hard to tell. From our piece on alien intervention during the Cold War to the [...]
Whilst to many people the term ‘Chupacabra’ might not mean anything, for many parts of the world it sparks the image of one of the most deadly creatures ever thought up. A creature of immense legend, the story of what constitutes a Chupacabra – or indeed if there is any truth to their potential existence – has changed many times over the course of history. In this simple guide, we’ll take a look at what makes the story so believable and why so many people have spent all these years discussing the unique legend of this creature.
In this article, we’ll be trying to open the discussion on UFO Insight about the history of the creature and whether there might actually be [...]
For many people, the idea of the Easter Island statues – otherwise known as Moai – is something akin to a manmade phenomenon. Like many other items that we find scattered across the Earth, the origins and the format of these amazing monolithic figurines is something of great debate. Whilst they were carved and created by the Rapa Nui people between 1250-1500 CE, many other elements of their history are certainly not definitive. Almost every Moai out there comes with the massive heads, and most of the time they are about as large as the body of the statue itself – the stones were not only left on the island, but were transported to outer parts of the island and left with large stone [...]
For years, the term cancer has been one that causes immense struggle and fear within the minds of people. Seen by many as the “plague of our era” the problem with cancer is that most of the forms of it we know of are incurable at present. At best, we can fight against it using the old fighting fire with fire adage (otherwise known as radiotherapy) but a lot of forms of cancer are, at present, unbeatable.
This has led to many people to wonder how, with billions of investment into cancer research, a solution cannot be found. We’re told that the cancer itself is just so complex and so unique that it simply cannot be fought back against properly. However, now links exist [...]
Over the years, stories about how we’ve engaged with other species have been common. From the Annunaki to various stories about Nordics from space that people speak to on a regular basis, we’ve heard just about every kind of alien story possible. Others even have us being run by lizard people!
However, one story that has been spoken about at length was the supposed stopping of a nuclear missile launch during the Cold War era. As the Soviet and US relations reached an all-time low, it looked like the world could be heading for the kind of war that it could never come back from.
However, according to various videos, sources and speculation over the years this was [...]
Seen by many as a source of incredible power and also a testament to the former power of humankind – or something else – the Great Pyramid of Giza is known around the world. Even today, with all of our technology and our expertise, it’s impossible to build something of that scale with such incredible accuracy.
History tells us that the pyramids was created over a period of two decades in the honour of the Pharaoh, Khufu. Estimated to be 5.9 million tonnes, the sheer weight of the pyramid itself leads sceptics to believe that one of the Seven Wonders of the World was not built by mere men.
Given that we cannot even replicate the feature today when using [...]
Over the years, the horrible events of Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, has been relayed time and time again. However, one thing which always seems to change is how these attacks actually started in the first place. From a surprise assault to conspiracies about pre-emptive knowledge of the attacks, Pearl Harbor is something which has seen more changes to its history than arguably anything else to do with the Second World War.
The reports of pre-emptive knowledge, though, are fairly damning. Was there really knowledge that this attack was to occur? And more importantly, did they really do nothing to move their own troops out of the way?
Today, we’ll take a [...]
For many years, the mystery of the Lockerbie Bombing – one of the most dramatic events to take place in the last thirty years – has been one in which the public have demanded answers. Many of the theories around what took place that day, though, tend to be significantly different from the theories that were officially provided at the time.
Much like many other parts of modern history, the Lockerbie bombing is something which takes a great deal of precedence within discussions about government cover-ups and various other conspiracy theories.
The problem is that without any real evidence to go on, many conspiracy theories die off or become the story of one or two [...]
Over the years, the idea of narcolepsy has become more serious. It’s been an illness that at one stage was deemed to be quite funny by the masses; people falling asleep every time they got sexually aroused, or every time they ate too much sugar, became a common thing to hear.
Although once seen as an extremely rare condition, narcolepsy has become more common as time has gone on and this makes it harder than ever for someone to get the help that they need in becoming more comfortable with themselves.
The stigma of the illness makes that hard to do – especially when it happens in public. Thankfully, a public consensus has changed narcolepsy from being a source of fun to [...]
The world of space age technology and development is something that fascinates even the most realistic of minds; that extra touch of fantasy – being able to see what else waits us outside – is one of the most enjoyable parts of the modern world. However, one of the key problems that most of us tend to find when looking into space exploration and tech is understanding what makes it such a fun thing to be involved with in the first place – it’s the potential, rather than what they find.
When we hear of certain events occurring, the potential for something life-changing to occur is possible. From finding aliens to a whole new planet that could be colonized, the discoveries of [...]
For many years, conspiracies about what the government have done and what they have carried out have grown arms and legs. What starts out as a disgruntled comment in the pub from one person soon turns into a blog post claiming ‘sources’ and using haggard footage and extremely specific circumstances to try and sell the idea of a conspiracy.
Sometimes, though, the “tin foil hat brigade” have a point. One incident where they may have had a point comes from the Lynmouth Flood Conspiracy Theory. This is a theory that there was potential military experimentatioroyaln and involvement – never admitted to, of course – on 15th-16th August 1952 in which a ridiculous storm created [...]
For most of us, the world of the occult and the “strange” is something that we simply avoid. Lots of humanity tend to stick to the idea that things outside of the ordinary are best saved for movies and for scaring children at Halloween. Unfortunately, not everything that we hear or read about that seems a bit out there is out there – sometimes, it’s more authentic than you could ever have feared.
One such story that seems to have grown an incredible amount of legs in the last few years is that of the Slender Man. Whilst the mythology of Slendermen has been around for many years and is built into just about every generation as a scare story, the actual development of what the [...]
