One of the most exciting mysteries of Ancient Egypt — vast fields of glass, which were discovered in 1932. In December, an officer "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 crunching. Coming out of the car, the traveler found that the way of scattered large pieces of transparent yellow-green glass, glass has a very unusual clarity: almost devoid of impurities, it is 98 per cent consisted of silicone! Clayton was a pioneer who became famous deposits of Libyan desert glass. Another prehistoric hunters and nomads used to make glass knives and other items. There is evidence that in the tomb of Tutankhamun was discovered Scarab cut from glass.
Deposits glass stretched for hundreds of kilometers. Some pieces weigh up to 26 kilograms, but most smaller in size, its shape resembles a giant green bottle fragments.
According to conventional theory, the transformation of the sand in the glass was the result of the fall of the cosmic body, accompanied by powerful heat output. 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 deep layers produced by satellite radar.
Some believe that the spaceship (or meteorite) did not fall to the ground and exploded a few kilometers above the surface, which explains the absence of a crater. However, this assumption does not explain the other oddities. The fact that clusters of glass fixed in not one, but two areas of the desert. It turns out there were two guest space?
After the explosion of the atomic bomb during the tests in the U.S. state of New Mexico desert sands turned into a molten green glass. Maybe a 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 in the desert?
Every now and then in different parts of the world are areas of soil, covered with fragments of very ancient glass. Does this mean that thousands of years ago, the earth has seen nuclear war, or at least that someone regularly conducted nuclear tests?
Another puzzle that can be put on a par with the mystery of Libyan desert glass — glazed forts Scotland. One of the most striking examples is the fortress Tap O'Not. This massive structure located on the crest of the hill at an altitude of 560 meters. At first glance it seems as if the walls of the fort are made of piles of stones, but on closer inspection you notice with surprise that they are not knocked out of solid boulders, and the molten rock. Where there were once isolated stones, now blackened frozen smooth.
None of the existing explanations of the phenomenon of glassy forts is not certain. According to one theory, the builders specifically set fire fortress in order to make the stone into the glass, wishing to give rigidity to the structure. This version is interesting, however, is questionable. First, the fire seems to have not only strengthened the walls, but some of them destroyed. Second, in the laboratory, it was estimated that the process of glazing stones that make up the forts, starts at 1100'S! Such a temperature is almost impossible to create by burning logs and fallen trees.
Another assumption states that do not set fire to the castle builders and conquerors. But why did conquest telyam make Herculean efforts to not only burn or destroy the fort and turn it into a glass? One explanation: they have the type of weapon unknown to us, able to melt stone!
Written stories brought us information on a substance called "Greek fire" that existed in ancient times. This substance is a kind of ancient napalm bombs. Discharged with a catapult, she had such a strong flammability, that it was impossible to put out. Some types of "Greek fire" could burn even under water, so they were used in naval battles. The secret of "Greek fire" was not able to solve. It is believed that this is the "legacy" of newcomers.
Advocates of the ancient astronaut intervention in human history suggest that the walls of Scottish forts turned into glass aliens. This is the most appropriate version. In other words, glazed forts suggest that in Scotland, England and Wales in prehistoric times, around 1000 BC, there lived a highly developed civilization, which is building huge buildings and fought with another powerful nation with nuclear or other weapons of enormous destructive mysterious Power! Such a civilization on Earth probably would have left a lot more physical evidence of their existence,
In 1922, the Indian archaeologist R. Banardzhi found on an island in the River Indus an ancient ruin. They were called Mohenjo-Daro, which means "Hill of the Dead." Even then, questions arose: was destroyed this great city, where were its inhabitants? Among the ruins are scattered alloy pieces of clay and other minerals, which at one time quickly hardened and turned into glass. Analysis of the samples held in the University of Rome and in the laboratories of the National Research Council of Italy, showed that fusion occurred at 1400-1500 degrees!
This temperature at that time could be obtained in the furnace steel shop, but not in the vast open area. In Mohenjo-Daro, in addition, there are traces of a special kind, If you carefully examine the ruined building, it seems that a clear-cut area, the epicenter, where all the buildings swept away some squalls. From the center to the periphery of the fracture is gradually reduced. The best preserved outlying buildings. In short, the picture is reminiscent of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki! Is it conceivable to assume that the earth conquerors 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" talk about a "explosion" that caused the "blinding light a fire without smoke", with "the water began to boil, and the fish were charred." If you believe the "Mahabharata", in the past the earth rattled fantastic battles that used aircraft, chemical and presumably atomic weapons. It is quite possible in this way, long before Christ, aliens from the stars restrained and punished recalcitrant cities and even nations. The ancient glass-formation, spread across the planet, remain silent witnesses otgremevshih long battles.
