Europe saved by aliens

Half of Europe would no longer exist if UFOs hadn't stopped an even worse disaster at Chernobyl, according to Pravda.

When troublesome events started to occur, some people saw a spaceship hovering above the fourth generating unit of the Chernobyl plant. Eyewitnesses say that an UFO was there for six hours and that hundreds of people saw it. People started writing about it only two years after the catastrophe. Of course, such information appeared in magazines on ufology. As it is generally believed, serious people don't read such magazines and journals.
Here is what Mikhail Varitsky had to say: I and other people from my team went to the site of the blast at night. We saw a ball of fire, and it was slowly flying in the sky. I think the ball was six or eight meters in diameter. Then, we saw two rays of crimson light stretching towards the fourth unit. The object was some 300 meters from the reactor. The event lasted for about three minutes. The lights of the object went out and it flew away in the northwestern direction.
The UFO brought the radiation level down. The level was decreased almost four times. This probably prevented a nuclear blast.

They apparently came back three years later to check the environmental damage. UFO prevents blast at Chernobyl nuclear plant - Pravda, September 16th 2002 (thanks, Charlie).

Holy leaky roof

Hundreds of devotees have flocked to the Rajinder Surji Mandir - a Hindu temple - in Chickpet to have a look at a fluid seeping out of the roof in tiny droplets.

The devotees who virtually blocked the narrow lanes insisted that it was nothing short of divine providence that had sent the kesri fluid.

A similar brownish liquid appeared at the same temple two years ago. `Kesri fluid miracle' at Chickpet temple - The Times of India, September 15th 2002.

Aliens invade Israel

It's bad enough when your neighbours want to drive you into the sea, but people in certain parts of Israel have to deal with aggressive aliens as well.

Residents of the towns of Kadima and Rishon Letzion have reported numerous sightings of UFOs in the spring of 1993. Some people have even claimed that UFOs have landed on their lawns. Circles were found on the landing sites, and ufologists discovered silver-colored metal pieces or an oil-like red in the circles.

Some witnesses report seeing the craft's tall, bald-headed occupants, and they haven't come in peace!

Hanna Sameh from the settlement of Burgatu (two miles from Kadima) was doing some housework in the kitchen. All of a sudden, she heard her dog barking very loudly. The woman could see the dog in the window, and she did not believe her eyes. The dog was raised in the air; then it flew by the window and slammed into a wall. Hanna opened the door in order to see what was happening outside. When she stepped out of her house, she could not take another step further. She saw a tall, bald man. The man was gazing at her pickup truck. What have you done to my dog? asked the woman. It was bothering me, as you are now. I can do the same to you; get out of here answered the weird stranger.

Other incidents include the deaths of all the domestic animals in Moshe Poret, including a flock of sheep whose corpse did not decay for four months, and the mysterious illness of a witness in a small village near Rishon Letzion. The aliens have also been hyponotising drivers and reading their minds. Dozens of such incidents have been reported in Israel since 1993. There is the impression that aliens have a plan for Israel. However, no one knows the purpose of their activity. Israel occupied by aliens - Pravda, September 13th 2002.

Russian invents flying saucer

A Russian inventor is looking for $15 million in venture capital to develop a five seater Diskolyot, or flying saucer. The means of generating lift is unconventional and covered by a Russian patent, but Yuri Bezrukov is keeping the details secret as he can't afford an international patent.

Bezrukov hasn't tested a life-size model because of finances, but a smaller electric-powered model he made in 1999 did lift 20 centimeters (8 inches) into the air, he says.
There is a principle of likeness in science, Bezrukov says. If a small one took off, then a larger one will, too.
The flying saucer is designed to be six meters long and fly at a speed of 700 kilometers per hour (437 mph) using two 250-horsepower engines. The price tag for each saucer would be $120,000.

He plans to produce 786 flying saucers per year at the Progress military aviation plant in Arseniev. Russian inventor peddles "flying saucer" at APEC mart - Vladivostok News, September 12th 2002.
