Here is the UFO Headline News for the Weekend of Saturday June 17th/Sunday June 18th, 2017
Headline #1: The Guardians of the Pole
Synopsis: Kochab and Pherkad are part of the famous Little Dipper asterism in the constellation Ursa Minor the Lesser Bear. They mark the outer part of the cup of the Little Dipper, the part farthest from Polaris, the North Star. Kochab is designated Beta Ursa Minoris, and Pherkad is Gamma Ursa Minoris. Their proximity to the famous Polaris might cause you to overlook them, but Kochab and Pherkad have their own claims to fame.
Synopsis: In the history of Egyptology, so many ancient tombs have been located and identified that it was thought further finds would be rare. But a team of archaeologists just made a momentous discovery. On Thursday, Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities announced it just uncovered 10 previously hidden tombs. The tombs—which are located near the Aga Khan Mausoleum on the west bank of Aswan—are from what is called Egypt’s late period, meaning they are likely around 2,500 years old.
Synopsis: Last week, Egyptian archaeologists uncovered 10 ancient royal tombs and even some mummies. And now another discovery into ancient Egypt has been made. Mahmoud Afifi, head of the Ancient Egyptian Antiquities Sector at the Ministry of Antiquities, announced the finding of a Hellenistic tomb in the El Shatby area in Alexandria. What’s more, over 300 artifacts including pottery vessels, a terracotta statue and lamps made of clay were found inside.
Synopsis: If the road to hell is paved with good intentions, then the road to progress is paved with…the destruction of ancient civilizations? In May of 2013, archeologists in Belize were horrified to discover that a construction crew had gutted a major Maya archeological site in order to use the pyramid’s stone for roadwork. While authorities were aware that a small amount of looting had taken place, they did not realize the extent of the destruction until it was too late. The largest pyramid on the site of Nohmul (also known as Noh Mul), the most important Maya site in Belize, had been reduced to just a core of rubble.
Synopsis: The Space Kingdom of Asgardia has announced what may be a significant step towards becoming recognized as the first nation to orbit Earth. The founders of Asgardia, which is named after Norse mythology’s city in the skies, hope to create a peaceful, space-faring nation that mines asteroids and defends planet Earth from dangerous meteorites, space debris, and other threats. They announced the existence of Asgardia in October 2016, and subsequently garnered hundreds of thousands of citizenship applications. For now, Asgardia is a non-profit non-governmental organization based out of Vienna, Austria. The group aims to help its roughly 200,000 future citizens form a recognizable government, though many complex steps remain before Asgardia could ever become a real nation — if it ever does.
