Missing Passenger Jet Conspiracy...

You think he has something here? I myself prefer the alien abduction theory. But that's how i roll. Lol

Mathematician May Have Just Solved The Mystery Of Missing Flight MH370

A mathematics professor may have solved the mystery of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which disappeared without trace last year with 239 people on board. 
Conspiracy theorists have suggested various outlandish theories including the idea that the flight was abducted by aliens. 

But the reality may be a little more prosaic, according to applied mathematician Dr. Goong Chen of Texas A&M University.

His computer models suggest that the flight entered a vertical dive over the Indian Ocean, entering the water cleanly and without breaking up.

The simulated crash solves some of the mysteries surrounding MH370 — such as the lack of debris and spilled oil on the surface.

Dr. Chen suggests that the plane’s body and wings sank rapidly — explaining the lack of an oil slick on the surface.

Dr. Chen says, “The true final moments of MH370 are likely to remain a mystery until someday when its black box is finally recovered and decoded.

“But forensics strongly supports that MH370 plunged into the ocean in a nosedive.”

Asteroid Armegeddon?...

My sister likes to refer to me as "The Master Blaster of Disaster." Perhaps she's right. Anyway, I thought I'd share this one with you.

Conspiracy theorists are convinced that a giant asteroid will hit Earth in September

Ah, conspiracy theorists. You've gotta love them.

As part of a training exercise for the US military, areas in the states of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado are being used to simulate different types of terrain for soldiers to participate in. Although the plans haven't been made available to the public, the increase in military activity in the region has sent bloggers, theorists and whack-jobs spiralling off into all sorts of outlandish theories about what's happening.

The prevailing theory is that the training exercise - known as Jade Helm - is actually a front for the US military's plan to invade Texas. In fact, that theory has become so widespread that the governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, issued a statement warning Texans to "know their safety, constitutional rights, private property right and civil liberties will not be infringed."

However, there are also a good number of theories suggest that a massive asteroid is due to hit the Earth between September 22nd and September 28th, resulting in a post-apocalyptic scenario in that region - hence why all the army people are there, getting ready for the end of the world

Those same theorists believe that the asteroid was brought forth thanks to the Large Hadron Collider, which (in their words) meddled with the cosmic forces and dragged the asteroid out of its path. While some scientists have admitted that the LHC could cause a black hole to form, they have stated that there is no evidence that it can have an effect on the path that asteroids travel but hey, why should facts get in the way of a good conspiracy theory? Plenty of vloggers and bloggers have taken to the internet to give us the official, 100% true version of what's definitely happening. 

The growing concerns online has lead NASA to release a statement where they have had to tell people when the next asteroid is due to be anywhere near Earth, and it turns out we're safe for a few hundred years yet. 

That hasn't stopped people coming up with plenty of theories about what's going on, with one blogger saying that the end of the world is nigh because "the CERN logo is 666 - the sign of the beast - in a circle. The CERN collider looks like the all-seeing eye or stargaze we see so much of", and another on the site Whistleblower 800 has said that they've figured out exactly what's going on with the training exercise: "This (asteroid) is why the military is deploying Jade Helm this summer, because it may no longer be possible to cover it all up. Jade Helm is an insurance policy. If we make it to fall, JH will just be a training exercise". Of course, the military would never admit that, because it would cause complete anarchy, so that's why no one is talking about it of course.
Our theory? We thinks this is all just a promotional exercise for The X-Files.

The Mysteries of Space...

Ah! The mysteries of outer space. What could it be? (i didn't say it was a UFO yet!) So don't be so hasty. Lol.

NASA Gets Best View Yet of Mysterious Bright Spots on Ceres

NASA's Dawn spacecraft obtained this image of the brightest spots on dwarf planet Ceres on June 6, …

NASA's Dawn spacecraft has snapped the best-ever images of the dwarf planet Ceres' bright spots, but the strange features still have researchers scratching their heads.

The new photos resolve the' bright spots on Ceres into numerous points of varying sizes. The brightest ones lie within a crater about 55 miles (90 kilometers) wide, researchers said. You can see a video tour of Ceres' strange white spots on that shows how the odd features have come into focus for Dawn over the last two months.

"The bright spots in this configuration make Ceres unique from anything we've seen before in the solar system. The science team is working to understand their source," Dawn principal investigator Chris Russell of UCLA said in a statement. "Reflection from ice is the leading candidate in my mind, but the team continues to consider alternate possibilities, such as salt." [More Photos of the Dwarf Planet Ceres]

Dawn captured the images this month from its second mapping orbit of Ceres, an orbit that lies about 2,700 miles (4,400 km) above the surface of the heavily cratered world. But the probe will soon get even closer to the dwarf planet — close enough, perhaps, to take the bright spots' measure at last.
On June 28, Dawn will begin spiraling down to an orbit with an altitude of 900 miles (1,450 km), finally getting there in early August. (It takes Dawn a while to get around because the probe is powered by superefficient but low-thrust ion engines.)

"With closer views from the new orbit and multiple view angles, we soon will be better able to determine the nature of this enigmatic phenomenon," Russell said in the same statement.

NASA's Dawn spacecraft obtained this image of craters in the northern hemisphere of dwarf planet …

The $473 million Dawn mission launched in September 2007 to study Ceres and Vesta, the two largest objects in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Ceres is about 590 miles (950 km) wide, while Vesta's diameter is 330 miles (530 km).

Dawn orbited Vesta from July 2011 through September 2012, when it departed for Ceres. The spacecraft arrived at Ceres this past March, in the process becoming the first probe ever to circle two objects beyond the Earth-moon system, as well as the first to orbit a dwarf planet.

The new images from Dawn's second mapping orbit have helped highlight some of the differences between Ceres and Vesta. For example, while both objects have been heavily pockmarked by craters, Ceres bears more evidence of geological activity on its surface, such as flows and landslides, NASA officials said.

Dawn is scheduled to continue studying Ceres through June 2016. The probe will make its final observations of the dwarf planet from an extremely close-in orbit, eyeing Ceres from just 230 miles (375 km) away.
