• On February 15, 2013, a 20-meter meteor exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia, smashing windows and causing over 1,000 injuries. But it didn’t impact the Earth. If it had, it would have been devastating to the entire planet.
• Russian UFO enthusiasts have closely studied video at different angles of the meteor’s decent and explosion in the atmosphere, and they are certain that another smaller “UFO” type object streaked in from above the planet colliding with the meteor and causing it to explode before impacting the Earth.
• In 1908, a similar incident took place when a small asteroid exploded over Siberia’s Tunguska region, devastating 800 miles of woodland. The Russians believe an outside object crashed into that meteor as well, saving the world. Metallic fragments not native to this planet were recovered from the Tunguska site, indicating that the object that hit the meteor was destroyed. “If not for the intervention of the UFO in the Tunguska event, the Earth could have been plunged into a second stone age.”


The 20 metre meteor exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia, in 2013, which smashed windows and caused injuries to more than 1,000 people in the area.

Experts had not anticipated the incident, leading to fears Earth could be surprised by a more devastating asteroid strike in the future.

But, conspiracy theorists are now claiming a more intelligent species than humankind had predicted the event, and duly intercepted it to save Russia.

UFO believers studied videos of the incident and state there is an object which can be seen crashing into the rock from outer space.

Alexander Komanev, coordinator for the Russian UFO community in Yekaterinburg, said: “At first, we also believed the Chelyabinsk meteorite was just an ordinary meteorite, a cosmic body.”

However, on closer inspection, Mr Komanev says “you can see how an object catches the meteorite”, adding a much smaller object “flies into it – and the meteorite explodes and falls”.

He adds: “Such a number of videos, made from different angles, leads us to believe that something has blown up the meteorite.”

In 1908, a similar incident took place when a small asteroid exploded over Siberia’s Tunguska which ruined woodlands across 800 miles.

Russian conspiracy theorists also believe aliens saved the world in that event too.

A team of scientists has released a paper in the March edition of the Journal of Cosmology supporting claims from an earlier study, that a meteorite that crashed in Sri Lanka in December 2012 contained extraterrestrial fossils. The initial paper, “Fossil Diatoms in a New Carbonaceous Meteorite,” was published in January 2013 and subjected to criticism that the diatom fossils (a form of algae) found in the meteor had been contaminated by earth water and the fossils were terrestrial in origin. The new study authored by a team of scientists from Cardiff University, University of Buckingham, and University of California San Diego, found that the rock was definitely a meteorite and that the meteor had not been contaminated, and the fossils in it were ancient. The new scientific study gives strong support to Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe’s theory of Panspermia, that ancient microbial life has spread throughout the galaxy by comets.

The new scientific study, “The Polonnaruwa Meteorite: Oxygen Isotope, Crystalline And Biological Composition,” appeared in the March 5 edition of the Journal of Cosmology. It was first reported on March 11 by Sebastian Anthony, in ExtremeTech, who claimed that the new study “is the strongest evidence yet of cometary panspermia.”

The March 5 study directly addressed the main criticism leveled against the January paper that the meteor rock samples were contaminated by Earth water, and that the Diatom fossils were of terrestrial origin. Professor Patrick Kociolek from the University of Colorado wrote a response to Phil Plait from Bad Astronomy that:

… the diversity present in the images represent a wide range of evolutionary history, such that the “source” of the diatoms from outer space, must have gone through the same evolutionary events as here on earth. There are no extinct taxa found, only ones we would find living today…for me it is a clear case of contamination with freshwater.

Plait and other critics used Kociolek’s claim that the meteor sample was contaminated by freshwater. Using a sophisticated testing process, the new study, however, conclusively dismissed the contamination thesis:

The presence of a number of carbonaceous biological structures exhibiting severe nitrogen depletion is highly indicative of ancient fossilised biological remains. Some of these were deeply integrated in the surrounding mineral matrix suggesting they could not have been recent terrestrial contaminants.

The March 5 study also addressed criticism that the Sri Lanka rock samples were not meteorites; it concluded:

We conclude that the oxygen isotope data show P1 59/001-03 and P/159001-04 are unequivocally meteorites, almost certainly fragments originating from the fireball-causing bolide. The most likely origin of this low density meteorite with delicate structures, some highly carbonaceous, is a comet.

This March 5 scientific study helps confirm Wickramasinghe’s theory of Panspermia which the authors themselves point out: “The presence of fossilized biological structures provides compelling evidence in support of the theory of cometary panspermia first proposed over thirty years ago.” The new study is sure to raise more scrutiny of the Sri Lankan meteor sample and the idea that life is quite common throughout the universe, and can be spread by comets.

A ten thousand ton meteorite blew up yesterday over the Russian Urals with the force of an atomic bomb of 500 kilotons (30 Hiroshoma bombs) causing over 1200 injuries and damaging 3000 buildings in the city of Chelyabinks according to NASA and the Russian Interior Ministry. The meteorite explosion preceded by a few hours the near miss of the much larger Asteroid 2012 DA14 whose impact would have been far more catastrophic. The close timing between the two events led to some scientists claiming that they were related. Not so according to NASA which released a statement saying that the meteorite and Asteroid 2012 DA14 were entirely unconnected. More controversial are claims by Russian MP, Vladimir Zhirinovsky who told the Russian media that the meteorite was in fact a U.S. weapons test. While widely regarded as an extreme rightwing Russian nationalist given to making provocative claims by the Western media, Zhirinovsky does raise some important questions. Do elements of the U.S. military possess weapons that could simulate a meteorite falling over major cities? If so, then such weapons could indeed be used to intimidate nations into following policies against their national interests as Zhirinovsky was suggesting.

First, let’s begin with Zhirinovsky’s comments. He told Russia’s state controlled RIA news: “Those aren’t meteors falling, it’s the Americans testing new weapons” Zhirinovsky also claimed: “US Secretary of State John Kerry had wanted to warn Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov about the “provocation” on Monday, but couldn’t reach him.” Most controversially he went on to say: “Outer space has its own laws… Nothing will ever fall out there… If [something] falls, it’s people doing that. People are the instigators of wars, the provocateurs.”

Zhirinovsky’s claims might be easily dismissed as the scientifically illiterate comments of an extreme Russian nationalist. Yet, he does have a point that wars are often instigated by shadowy groups using false flag events to intimidate nations and provoke wars. Also, it has been calculated that the chances of asteroid near miss and meteor impact happening at nearly same time (only 15 hours apart) were calculated to be 1 in 100 million. That indicates a high likelihood that the events were more than coincidental which supports Zhirinovsky’s claim. So we now get to the core of Zhirinovsky’s claims. Does the U.S. military have the technology to simulate a meteorite impact or direct an actual meteor from its space trajectory over specific regions or cities over Earth?

According to what is publicly known about U.S. military capabilities no such technology exists. There are however classified military technologies secretly deployed in space that could redirect or imitate a meteor detonating over specific regions of the planet. Contrary to general public knowledge, there is strong evidence of a secret space fleet, controlled in part by elements of the U.S. military that is capable of interplanetary flight using sophisticated antigravity technologies. In his memoirs, Former President Ronald Reagan in fact referred to a secret space shuttle program that could fly 300 people:

Lunch with 5 top space scientist. It was fascinating. Space truly is the last frontier and some of the developments there in astronomy etc. are like science fiction, except they are real. I learned that our shuttle capacity is such that we could orbit 300 people.

In regard to antigravity technologies, these have been clearly demonstrated to both exist, and to have been developed in classified military programs.

Using antigravity technologies, one of the vehicles belonging to this secret space fleet could approach and change the inertia (something regarded as impossible by the currently known laws of science) of a meteor, asteroid or comet in order to move it out of its normal space trajectory. Antigravity technology could therefore be used to direct meteors, or simulate a meteorite impact using other space objects, over nations for political purposes. Indeed, redirecting a meteor or asteroid in this way to cause regional destruction on Earth, could be used as a false flag event to warn nations against pursuing certain policies. Such an event would generate a new set of global threats that absorb public attention and future government funding, as occurred with the September 11, 2001 attack which has been claimed to have involved classified space weapons.

Finally, what of the timing of the meteorite impact and today’s asteroid pass? Is there a connection? In this regard, NASA says:

According to NASA scientists, the trajectory of the Russian meteorite was significantly different than the trajectory of the asteroid 2012 DA14, making it a completely unrelated object. Information is still being collected about the Russian meteorite and analysis is preliminary at this point. In videos of the meteor, it is seen to pass from left to right in front of the rising sun, which means it was traveling from north to south. Asteroid DA14’s trajectory is in the opposite direction, from south to north.”

While there may be no direct physical connection, the timing of the two events does create a clear psychological association, and suggests a possible political connection.

Psychologically, the two events have been associated by their close timing, only a few hours apart. The attention of the world public and media has been directed to a destructive meteorite impact at virtually the same time of a near miss by an asteroid, something that would have been far more destructive if it impacted. The world public and leaderships will predictably give more serious attention to the threat posed by asteroids and other Near Earth Objects.

Politically, if the meteorite impact was created by elements of the U.S. military, then the timing of the meteor impact and asteroid flyby was meant to send a clear political message to Russian leaders. The Chelyabinsk region is only 900 miles from Moscow and has long been a hub for the Russian military and defense industries. Zhirinovsky could be correct. The meteor may have been a warning to the Russian Federation to change policies that are inconsistent with U.S. policy, or else in future something from space might impact with far more catastrophic consequences.
