New Discovery: Earth Has 3rd Radiation Belt

A ring of radiation previously unknown to science fleetingly surrounded Earth last year before being virtually annihilated by a powerful interplanetary shock wave, scientists say.

 NASA's twin Van Allen space probes, which are studying the Earth's radiation belts, made the cosmic find. The surprising discovery — a new, albeit temporary, radiation belt around Earth — reveals how much remains unknown about outer space, even those regions closest to the planet, researchers added.

 After humanity began exploring space, the first major find made there were the Van Allen radiation belts, zones of magnetically trapped, highly energetic charged particles first discovered in 1958.

 The giant amounts of radiation the Van Allen belts generate can pose serious risks for satellites.

Unexpectedly, the probes revealed a new radiation belt surrounding Earth, a third one made of super-high-energy electrons embedded in the outer Van Allen belt about 11,900 to 13,900 miles (19,100 to 22,300 kilometers) above the planet's surface. This stable ring of space radiation apparently formed on Sept. 2 and lasted for more than four weeks. Read more

  1. Interesting, but is it all to be believed.
    Ive heard stories of just how much radiation there is in said belts, and what would be needed to shield from it even for a few minutes.
    From what I understand not a single Apollo mission had appropriate shielding. Only the shuttles had, and they didn't tend to go That far out to the radiation.

    Things that make you go Hmmmmm...

Grant Cameron Discovers Secret Leaked Document on Live Alien in Mexico

The leak of a 15-page note by Dr. Eric Davis of his 2002 meeting with Vice Admiral Thomas Wilson represents the most significant UFO leak of the 21st Century.


The document, a transcript of a conversation between Astrophysicist Eric Davis and Admiral Thomas Wilson , states explicitly that Admiral Wilson was told that a Special Access Program has in their possession an alien vehicle not made of this Earth.

Besides Grant Cameron discovered that there is another secret document that claims a living Alien was captured in Mexico!

Below the video in which Grant Cameron talks about the living alien that was captured in Mexico, while Richard Dolan informs us about the latest development in the so-called 'Wilson Leak'.

Hiker films a strange object near Area 51

An unidentified flying object has been filmed from a mountain overlooking top secret US air base Area 51 by a hiker while hiking just miles away Area 51.


The hiker states: "Area 51 from Tikaboo Peak the base is very active. A great look into Area 51 just as the snow stopped."

"To get the best video, and pictures of Area 51 out there, I do feel the weather had a lot to do with the great shots I was able to get. Between the snowstorms, and clouds the base would just illuminate long enough for me to film, and take pictures."

 RT America’s Natasha Sweatte reports on this sighting.

Senators are now jumping on the UFO Disclosure wagon!

Three U.S. senators received a classified Pentagon briefing on Wednesday about UFOs and a series of reported encounters by the Navy with unidentified aircraft, according to congressional and government officials — part of a growing number of requests from members of key oversight committees writes New York Times and Politico.


“If naval pilots are running into unexplained interference in the air, that’s a safety concern Senator Warner believes we need to get to the bottom of,” his spokesperson, Rachel Cohen, said in a statement.

The interest in “unidentified aerial phenomenon” has grown since revelations in late 2017 that the Pentagon had set up a program to study the UFO phenomenon.

The Navy has played a prominent role in light of the testimony of F/A-18 pilots and other personnel operating with the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier battle group off California in 2004 - 'the now famous Nimitz incident with the so-called 'Tic Tac' and the USS Theodore Roosevelt in the Atlantic i…
