One of the most exciting mysteries of ancient Egypt — vast fields of glass, which were discovered in 1932, in December of that year employee of "the Egyptian Geological Bulletin" Patrick Clayton was driving among the desert dunes of the Great Sand Sea near the Saad Plateau Suddenly he heard a strange car wheels crunch. Coming out of the car, the traveler found scattered in the way of large pieces of transparent yellow-green glass …
Glass has an exceptionally clean almost devoid of impurities, it is 98 per cent consisted of a silicone Clayton was not the first to become famous deposits of Libyan desert glass More prehistoric hunters and nomads used it for the manufacture of knives and other items has been reported that in the tomb of Tutankhamun was discovered scarab carved Glass
The deposits of glass stretched for hundreds of kilometers Some pieces weigh up to 26 pounds, but most is smaller and its shape resembles a giant green bottle fragments
According to conventional theory, the transformation of sand in the glass was the result of falling space body, provoking a strong thermal emission, however, this theory has a number of flaws on the surface of the Great Sand Sea there is no trace of the crater, it could not be detected even in the microwave sensing the deep layers produced by satellite Radar
Some believe that the spaceship (or meteorite) falls to the ground and exploded a few kilometers above the surface, which explains the absence of a crater, however, this hypothesis does not explain another strange thing is that the clusters of glass fixed in not one, but two areas of the desert turns out, there were two space gostya7
After the explosion of the atomic bomb during tests in the U.S. state of New Mexico desert sands turned into a molten green glass Maybe glassy sand in ancient Egypt was a legacy of the bygone nuclear war — a war that has been able to transform North Africa and Arabia pustynyu7
Every now and then in different parts of the Earth are areas of soil, dotted with fragments of very ancient glass Does this mean that thousands of years ago, Earth witnessed the nuclear wars, or at least that someone is regularly conducted nuclear tests
Another puzzle that can be put on a par with the mystery of Libyan desert glass — glassy forts of Scotland One of the most striking examples is the fortress Tap O'Not This massive building, located on the crest of a hill at an altitude of 560 meters at first glance it seems as if the walls of the fort consist of a pile of stones, but on closer inspection you notice with surprise that they are not knocked out of solid boulders and rocks from molten rock Where once there were isolated stones, now blackened frozen homogeneous mass
None of the existing explanations of the phenomenon of glassy forts is not certain According to one version, the builders of specially set fire to the fortress in order to turn the stone into the glass, wanting to give the design strength of this version is interesting, however, is doubtful First, the fire appears to have not only reinforced walls, but in some places destroyed their Secondly, in the laboratory, it was estimated that the process of glazing stones that make up the forts, begins at 1100 ° C 'such temperatures not be practicable to set up, burning logs and fallen trees Another assumption says that the builders did not set fire to the castle, and the conquerors But why did the invaders to make Herculean efforts to not just burn or destroy the castle and turn it into a glass explanation of one unknown to us, they have the kind of weapon that can melt stone
Written traditions brought to us the information about the substance called "Greek fire" that existed in ancient times, this substance is a kind of ancient napalm bomb is discharged by means of a catapult, she had such a strong flammability, that it was impossible to put out some kind of "Greek fire" could burn even under water, so they were used in naval battles secret to making "Greek fire" and did not manage to solve There is a perception that it is "inherited" aliens
Proponents of the theory of ancient astronauts intervention in the history of mankind believe that the walls of the Scottish forts turned into aliens and glass is the preferred version Otherwise, glassy forts suggest that in Scotland, England and Wales in prehistoric times, around 1000 BC, lived advanced civilization, which erected huge buildings and fought with another powerful nation with nuclear or other weapons of enormous destructive mysterious relics Such a civilization on Earth, most likely, would have left a much more tangible evidence of its existence
In 1922, the Indian archaeologist R Banardzhi found on an island in the River Indus ancient ruins They were called Mo-henge-Daro, which means "Hill of the Dead" Even then, there is a question as it was destroyed by the big city, where were its inhabitants are scattered among the ruins Alloys of pieces of clay and other minerals, which at one time quickly hardened and turned into glass sample analysis conducted by the University of Rome and in the laboratories of the National Research Council of Italy, showed melting occurred at 1400-1500 degrees This temperature at the time could be obtained in forge metal workshop, but not in the vast open area in Mohenjo-Daro, in addition, there are traces of a special kind If you carefully inspect the destroyed buildings, it seems clear that the outlined area — the epicenter, where all the buildings swept away from the center of a storm of some to the periphery of the destruction of gradually decreasing marginal best preserved structure of words, the picture is reminiscent of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki conceivable to assume that the earth conquering the Indus Valley owned nuclear energy This assumption seems incredible and flatly contradicts the notion of the modern historical science
However, in the Indian epic "Mahabharata" refers to certain "explosion" that caused the "blinding light a fire without smoke", while "the water began to boil, and the fish were charred," If you believe the "Mahabharata," in the past on earth rattled fantastic battles that used aircraft, chemical and presumably atomic weapons is quite possible in this way, long before Christ, aliens from the stars tamed and punish recalcitrant cities and even nations And the ancient glass-formation, scattered around the planet, are silent witnesses of long otgremevshih battles.
