10 Biggest Space Conspiracies Of All Time

Space is a vacuum full of mysteries Despite mankind’s remarkable achievements in space exploration, we have barely glimpsed what lies in deep space

There is so much we don’t know, and so many secrets still to uncover Here are the 10 Biggest Space Conspiracies 10 The Eye of Saturn Saturn’s entire north pole is covered by something science has never seen before A gigantic geometric storm, with six precise sides containing several layers of winds whipping around like a racetrack: a red hexagon of turbulent gas and electricity

It’s 100 kilometres deep and 25,000 kilometres wide – big enough for four Earths to fit inside Photographs from the Voyager and Cassini probes prove it has existed for at least 37 years The storm’s unnatural shape isn’t its only striking feature Mike Adams (Consumer Health Advocate) claims you can see a pyramid at the centre of the storm in some photos If there is a pyramid, it might be an alien structure, and the Eye of Saturn could be a product of mysterious alien technology

Conspiracy theorists believe it may be a portal for interplanetary travel But it could be something even worse Other theorists say it is the gateway to Hell – and it’s only a matter of time before we explore too far into it, or something comes out 9 The Iapetus Death Star In 2004, the Cassini spacecraft took a photograph of Saturn’s ice moon Iapetus The photo revealed a strange and unexpected line along its equator This ridge is unique, 20 kilometres wide, 20 kilometres high and stretching for 16,000 kilometres The moon is not spherical – it is more like a walnut

To conspiracy theorists, this squashed shape and the bulging ridge look more like an artificial join, like welded metal They argue it was manufactured by aliens They claim Iapetus is really an alien weapon Specifically, they say it bears more than a passing resemblance to the Death Star from Star Wars Although you might think the Death Star is purely fictional, theorists believe it was inspired by the truth

This theory does depend on how much you believe Hollywood leaks secrets through fiction According to NASA, Iapetus is merely a small moon made mostly of ice with some rocks They say photos prove the equatorial ridge is merely mountains, and what looks like a superlaser dish is an enormous impact crater If the theory is true, then our extraterrestrial enemies may already have the ultimate weapon positioned on our doorstep… 8 Nibiru According to David Meade, there is another planet in our solar system

It is called Nibiru, and it is on a collision course with Earth Nibiru is travelling at such an unusual trajectory that it cannot be seen from Earth, except from high altitude in South America or the South Pole This is because it is actually one of seven other planets orbiting a second sun Skeptics and scientists say this second star and its planets do not exist Yet David Meade says Nibiru’s gravitational field is already having bizarre effects on our planet

Earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes – all the bigger and more frequent natural disasters occurring around us are a result of Nibiru approaching Meade has calculated the date it will hit us – 23rd September 2017 But Meade isn’t the only one who knows Nibiru is coming He claims the global elite have prepared for the inevitable collision They’ve built bunkers deep underground to protect themselves from the impact and the subsequent scorching of the Earth

If Meade is right, the rest of us will have to suffer 7 The Philae Lander In November 2014, the European Space Agency made history when it landed the Philae probe on a comet moving through space, designated 67P The journey took 12 years and billions of dollars to complete The probe picked up a strange noise from the comet, a mystery song

Unfortunately, the probe crash-landed unsuccessfully, and its mission was cut short Yet shortly after Philae landed, someone claiming to be a whistleblower from the ESA said that Comet 67P was not really a comet They claimed it was actually the source of alien radio signals picked up by NASA In other words, 67P was an alien spacecraft The Philae probe was really sent there to make first contact; the story of it being a comet was all part of a cover up

Theorists say the story of a crash-landing may have been planned all along UFOlogist Scott Waring says the alien signal must have been a greeting, not a threat, otherwise the probe would never have been sent If so, then NASA and the ESA could be covering up an even bigger secret 6 Solar Warden In 2001, Scotsman Gary McKinnon hacked 97 US military and NASA computers He was so successful that he even left a note on the military’s website saying, “Your security is crap” The George W Bush administration wanted to send him to prison for 70 years

McKinnon said he was looking for evidence that the government had covered up UFOs UFOlogist Darren Perks claims McKinnon found something else: a top secret program called Solar Warden Funded by a black budget, Solar Warden is a space fleet controlled by the US Naval Network and Space Operations Command According to Darren Parks, it consists of forty-three scout ships and eight motherships, each one longer than two football fields It has at least 300 personnel, and some of them are “non-terrestrial officers”

It has patrolled our solar system since 1980, either to defend us from alien threats, or to colonise space for the global elite 5 The Throne of God Though it’s 1,500 light years away, the Belt of Orion is the most recognisable constellation in the night sky Also known as the Three Kings or the Three Marys, they have long fascinated humanity and been a significant part of our folklore and belief systems [CROSSFADE PYRAMIDS WITH ORION’S BELT] Theorist Danny Wilten believes it is much, much more

He has identified patterns everywhere in Christian Renaissance art by masters like Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci and Gian Lorenzo Bernini Those patterns match aspects of the Orion nebula, as viewed through superpowerful telescopes like Hubble But in the Renaissance period, there was no way they could see such details in the Belt of Orion Wilten believes they knew about it through divine inspiration – because the Belt of Orion is home to the Throne of God On the other hand, some people believe Orion’s Belt carries the Throne of Satan

They say the King James Bible’s story of Lucifer falling from the heavens is referring to Orion’s Belt, which is also named in the Old Testament Maybe one day mankind will journey to the Three Stars and find out the truth 4

The Eridanus Supervoid The cosmic microwave background, or CMB, is electromagnetic radiation remaining from the beginning of the universe It is the oldest light in the universe, and one of the major proofs for the Big Bang Theory With the right telescope, we can observe the CMB and its temperature fluctuations There are cold spots dotted around space – voids in our universe where CMB loses heat as it passes through However, there is a region of space in the constellation Eridanus that is far colder than science can explain

The Eridanus cold spot is up to a billion light-years across It is a supervoid, unprecedentedly huge, but scientists are more puzzled by the fact it is seven times colder than it should be Theoretical physicist Laura Mersini-Houghton believes it is not just a supervoid, but the imprint of a parallel universe meeting ours If she’s right, it is the first empirical evidence for a parallel universe, and proof that string theory is correct We might even be able to use to travel beyond our own universe

But for now, scientists are divided over what the Eridanus Supervoid really is 3 Fast Radio Bursts Fast Radio Bursts, or FRBs, are extraordinarily powerful pulses of radio waves They last just a few milliseconds but give off more energy than our sun provides in 300,000 years They are one of the most mysterious signals from outer space – not least because they are coming from outside the Milky Way

Only seventeen unique FRBs have been detected so far At least one of them is a repeating signal The furthest ones come from 10 billion light years away; the universe itself is 138 billion years old Dan Thornton from the University of Manchester believes FRBs are naturally occurring – but no scientist has been able to explain what makes them

Instead, Harvard University’s Manasvi Lingam and Avi Loeb suggest FRBs could be alien radio beams To create such a powerful signal, they’d need radio transmitters twice the size of the Earth So they could be using FRBs, not to communicate, but to push spacecraft with giant light sails FRBs could power light sails big enough to carry a million tonnes – to put that into perspective, the International Space Station weighs only 420 tonnes 2

The WOW! Signal In 1977, astronomer Jerry Ehman was monitoring deep space for any sign of intelligent life To his amazement, he picked up a brief signal that had never been observed before: the Wow Signal The signal was detected on only one of the 50 channels scanned by the Big Ear radio telescope What’s more, it was at a frequency scientists expect aliens might use to communicate across the galaxy; so much so, that humans are forbidden from using it just in case they interfere with the search for extraterrestrial life Puzzlingly, it came from an area in the constellation Sagittarius, where there are no known stars or planetary systems

Sadly, despite over 100 searches in that same area, the Wow Signal has never been detected again No-one knows what caused it, or whether or not it is proof of alien life out there Jerry Ehman himself is hesitant to interpret too much in the short sequence of numbers and letters he found that day, forty years ago The search for intelligent life continues 1

Alien Megastructure NASA has studied the star called KIC 8462852 for years It is in the constellation Cygnus, around 1400 light-years from Earth Using the Kepler telescope, citizen scientists observed that light from KIC 8462852 fluctuates in strange ways – at some points, 22% of the star’s light is obscured Pennsylvania State astronomer Jason Wright says something is deliberately blocking light from the star – an “alien mega-structure” This megastructure may be harvesting the star’s energy, and could be the best proof of alien life ever found

Doctor Seth Shostak from the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence says they are investigating KIC 8462852 for alien signals However, it is hard to draw conclusions Based on the star’s infra-red light, Dr Massimo Marengo from Iowa State University argues the unusual light patterns are due to a swarm of comets circling the star – nothing artificial at all On the other hand, the swarm of comets could be something else: a Dyson Sphere

This concept was proposed in 1960 by Freeman Dyson, and would be a swarm of loosely connected machines designed to harvest solar energy Only a civilization several times more advanced than us could build it Hopefully, the search will continue until we know for sure
