Airplane wheel and wheel well

It’s a rare event and even rarer if the person attempting it survives. The FAA says that since 1947, there have been around 100 people known to have stowed away in wheel wells of an airplane. Most of them died. But this week a 16-year-old boy survived a five-hour flight from California to Hawaii hidden in a wheel well of a commercial Boeing 767 airplane. Aviation experts are calling it a “miracle”.

Unexplained – Cherry tree seeds sent to space station grow into mutant plants on earth

// April 13th, 2014 // No Comments » // News

Freak space cherry tree in Japan blossomed years earlier with odd five-petal flowers

As part of an educational program for Japanese children, several cherry tree stones (the hard inner layer that contains the seed) were carried to the International Space Station by Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata in November 2008. Once returned to earth, the seeds were planted in various locations throughout Japan with expectations that the cherry trees would mature and blossom several years later. Surprisingly, and with no scientific explanation, the plants somehow blossomed years earlier than expected – and with a bizarre mutant flower formation that nobody has seen before.

NASA’s Curiosity rover captures odd shard of light bursting from surface of Mars

We’re not going to file this one under paranormal events just yet but still, it’s an interesting development. Eagle eyes have spotted an odd shard of light that seems to be erupting from the surface of Mars. Altered Dimensions verified that the photo is available on NASA’s website and has not been altered in any way. Two explanations thus far include missing photo image data (not likely since the light shows a distinct rounded-bottom and seems to overlay the terrain above and behind it) or possibly a reflection off of, well, we’re not sure what it would be reflecting off of and hence, the mystery.

Rainer and Edit Shattles of Jackson County, Mississippi were quite perplexed after reviewing video from their “deer cam” that had been set up in an open field on their 150 acres of land in rural Mississippi. The deer cam, which is triggered by an infrared sensor, snaps images of wildlife animals as they approach the deer feeder. To their surprise, on February 16, 2014, it revealed a set of odd hovering lights descending from the night sky. The Shattles are baffled, never imagining they would be caught up in a world-wide UFO mystery that has become known around the Internet as, the Deer UFO Photos.

Insane video shows hurtling meteorite passing mere feet from falling skydiver

Meteorite passes dangerously close to falling skydiver

Researchers are still studying the video but thus far, the only explanation they can find is that the huge tumbling object that zooms mere feet by the falling skydiver is – a meteorite! If this turns out to the be real identity of the mysterious object, as thus far all evidence suggests it really is what it appears to be, this will be the first time a meteor in “dark flight”, the portion of its fall to Earth when it does not emit fiery light, has been captured in photography

Did this Texas family just capture a live Chupacabra?

Jackie Stock’s husband, Bubba, was stunned on Sunday when he discovered a large, dark, hairless, growling creature eating corn outside their Ratcliffe, Texas home. He called to his wife to come take a look to which she replied, “Bubba, that looks like a baby chupacabra!” The couple managed to capture the mysterious beast in a small cage.

The mythical creature has never been proven to exist, but many people have often claimed to have seen animal of which there are many different descriptions.

Homepage of largest Yakuza gang, Yamaguchi-gumi

Japan’s biggest organized crime syndicate, the Yakuza, has launched its own website, the content of which, is not what you would expect. Spurred by a poor public image, membership in the Yakuza fell to an all-time low in 2013, slipping below 60,000 members for the first time. The Yakuza’s new website is an attempt to counter their image as “antisocial forces” and instead, show it as a friendly, neighborhood organization bent on improving the quality of life for Japan’s citizens.

Hexagon-shaped UFO flying above military base in Nevada

With the deluge of sketchy quadcopter and LED-light UFO videos that began suturing the Internet last year, I’ve been quite hesitant to post news of these events (which I consider to be “nonevents”) unless there is sufficient evidence to suggest they are authentic. Fact is, hoaxes are much more difficult to spot today. But the video below is intriguing. Admittedly, the authenticity cannot be verified yet but I thought I’d go ahead and pass it along and invite reader comments. But first, a bit of information about the video’s author and the video itself, which depicts a high-resolution shot of a strange hexagonal-like glowing object flying above a military base in Nevada.

NASA funded research project predicts collapse of our civilization within the next few decades

Collapsing building from ancient Roman civilization

According to a surprising new study funded by NASA, civilizations on Earth are set to collapse – within only a few decades. Researchers used advanced mathematical models seeded with compelling historical data related to previous civilizational collapses (e.g. Roman Empire, Gupta Empires) to reach their conclusion and found that even with conservative estimations, civilization as we know it is tittering on the brink of collapse. According to researchers, the impending collapse is due to several factors including a world bent on exploiting natural resources and increasingly unequal wealth distribution between the rich and poor.
