Are we really alone in the universe? So far, we still do not have a solid answer to this question. Sure, sci-fi movies tell us otherwise but aside from alleged UFO and alien sightings, we still do not have any concrete evidence of extraterrestrial life out there.
Every once in a while though, we get accounts that totally spook us and hint at the possibilities – such as this one.
Yang Liwei, China’s first astronaut, claims that he heard some mysterious knocks while he was out there in space.
This happened during his first flight in 2003 when he was sent to space by the Chinese space program to orbit earth multiple times.
No one has been able to explain the weird knocking incident since.
According to him, he felt very nervous after hearing the strange noises, especially after realizing that nothing was out of the ordinary when he looked into the vast emptiness. He said it sounded as if someone was knocking on the body of his spaceship and that the noise was similar to a hammer hitting an iron bucket.
People have come up with different theories about the mysterious noise (including aliens, of course) but according to Yang, he has never heard the noise again after his space mission.
Now a Major General in the Chinese Air Force, 51-year-old Yang recently shared memories about the experience in an interview with the media.
“A non-causal situation I have met in space is a knock that appeared from time to time.
“It neither came from outside nor inside the spaceship, but sounded like someone is knocking the body of the spaceship just as knocking an iron bucket with a wooden hammer.”
Other Chinese astronauts who also explored space said they’ve also heard the noise. To this, Yang said:
“Before entering space I have told them that the sound is a normal phenomenon, so there is no need to worry.”
There’s a Company That Turns People Into Diamonds When They Die!
A Swiss company called Algordanza has the technology to convert human remains into gem-quality memorial synthetic diamonds.
A Swiss company called Algordanza boasts of a truly memorable service. They have the technology that enables the transformation of human remains into diamonds.
The idea came to Algordanza founder Rinaldo Willy when he took note of how diamonds are created in nature.
Indeed, diamonds are formed when carbon is subjected to intense temperature (about 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit) and high pressure (725,000 pounds per square inch) and then rushed towards the Earth's surface to cool....
What Happens When You Dunk an iPhone 7 in the World’s Strongest Acid?
Those who love Apple products and hate to see them get destroyed, look away now!
YouTube user TechRax, known for experimenting and testing the durability limits of tech gadgets, has once again come up with a new test seeing which will last - the world's strongest acid or the latest iPhone 7?
The video starts off with TechRax showing us his fully functional matte black iPhone 7 and a bag of what looks like wood chips. In fact, it holds a 100g vial of the world's strongest acid: fluroantimonic acid.
Fluroantimonic acid has a pH level of -31, and as you know, the lower the pH level, the stronger the acidity. And if you're familiar with the deadly sulfuric acid, fluroantimonic acid is more than a million times stronger than sulfuric acid!...
Massive Cracks In West Antarctic Ice Sheet Warn Us Of ‘Unstoppable’ Collapse
“It’s no longer a question of whether the West Antarctic Ice Sheet will melt, it’s a question of when,” one expert said.
Most of us have probably heard about that news from last year when a 225 square-mile chunk of the Pine Island Glacier in West Antractica collapsed into the sea. This year, earth scientists from the Ohio State University are telling us that they’ve discovered why – it’s all because of a huge crack that started below, 20 miles inland.
While it is natural for Pine Island icebergs to break off (since it happens every 5 to 6 years) this particular case is like nothing we have seen in the area and is therefore truly alarming.
In an interview with Gizmodo, Ian Howat, lead study author and associate earth science professor of Ohio State University, commented, “The calving event itself wasn’t a big deal. What made this one different is how it got started.”...
