Scientists say the "sickness" that struck locals after a meteorite crash is mass hysteria. »
yahoo article.


who knows what it really is wether just an asteroid, satellite or ufo. or whatever it was. with a response like MASS HYSTERIA there is without a doubt some kind of coverup. there is no such thing as mass hysteria. unless all the people were on some kinda drug at the same time. here is an article linked to that bogus mass hysteria ploy that provides a logical explaination.

education.yahoo.com...

particles of mars hit the earth all the time and with the recent finding of bacteria from mars this is an acceptable explaination or if they just said it was the release of heated Arsenic from the ground (stated in the article) also would have been acceptable.

I am not saying I believe everthing that scientist say, but I will believe them before I believe something said or done in the name of god. Atleast scientist use tangible facts not just faith based beliefs. Government scientist are full of crap but not all scientist work for the government. Sometimes your gut feeling is right and my gut feeling was that the end of the world or even a good cover up wasnt going to start in Peru.

If you mean that the meteorite was that capsule, then I think it is not.

First, this happened on the 26th, the meteorite fell on the 15th, if I am not mistaken.

Second, the capsule that was expected to fall to Earth was only a 40cm, 5.5Kg and would fall with a parachute on Kazakhstan.


Edit: it did fell on Kazakhstan.

Foton-M3 experiments return to Earth

The Reconnaissance/Spy Satellite known as the KH-13 is part of the X8 program. The KH-13 weighs slightly over 20 tons and is roughly the shape of a bus. It has a matte grayish black finish and contains the latest optical & radar stealth technologies. There are no solar panels. Power is supplied by a thermal nuclear fission reactor (Project Invictus). Reactor output is in the range of 3MW (thermal) with a thermoelectric system (manufactured by the Astro-Space Division of the General Electric Co.) delivering up to 150 kW (electrical). The reactor also provides propulsion. Nuclear fission heats a hydrogen propellant which is stored as a liquid. The hot gas (about 2500°C) is expelled through nozzles to give thrust. This is more efficient than chemical reactions.


If the satellite were destroyed in space,and the power source (radioactive isotope Pu-238 surviving re-entry and crashing in a remote region of the South American Nation of Peru)...it could look like a meteorite..just a mass of hot melted "rock"...and would also cause

"More than 150 people have shown up with dermal injuries, which include heat burns. Most of the other casualties have reported feeling nauseous, suffering from respiratory problems, dizziness and had been vomiting :

According to Peru's La Republica newspaper, due to the high number of illnesses, district authorities are considering placing the town of Carancas, Puno, Peru in a state of emergency."

Read that link guys if you missed it



First results of meteorite samples analyzed.

HOW MUCH METEORITE DID YOU RECOVER?

Just some small pieces of 5 centimeters (2 inches). The fragments were collected first by the local police (from residents who gathered them) and the police gave us some pieces. [ See preliminary report below.]


Sampling by the INGEMMET scientist has been only partial. When she arrived, 36 hours later than the impact occurred, most major fragments had been taken by villagers.

Naked-eye observations show fine grained, light grey, fragile rocky material with disseminated iron of 1mm diameter (figures 4, 5, and 6).
MORE IMAGES TO BE ADDED.

Thin and polished sections were prepared for petro-mineralogic determinations under optical microscope. They revealed chondritic texture, and a mineral composition including pyroxene, olivine, iron, troilite, and alkali (?) feldspar.

Scientist Confirms Meteorite in Puno, Peru is a Chondrite

Peru's official government news agency reported this afternoon that scientists which went to the town of Carancas in the Region of Puno, Peru, have confirmed that the glowing object which fell from the sky on Saturday afternoon was indeed a meteorite.

According to Peru's La Republica newspaper, due to the high number of illnesses, district authorities are considering placing the town of Carancas, Puno, Peru in a state of emergency. It has been reported that at least 600 people have been affected by the meteorite.

Email back from Mike at meteoritehunter@comcast.net.


It is a common but very large meteorite, nothing else. They are preparing to excavate the meteorite now. mike


I had emailed and asked him when they are going to drain the hole and that theres speculation it may have been a satelite and all that... so that was his reply.

Emailed him again asking if 600 people realy got ill, his reply..


It is all hype, I am fluent in Spanish, lived in Panama and Colombia for years. About 30 people were sickened, mostly from hysteria. There was strong sulfur smell, not odd for a meteorite this large. mike


What can you say.

Funny, in the beginning pages of this thread people were thinking the world was going to end, lol.

It's called "deny ignorance" people.

No, it's called over-exaggeration. People want things to be mystical, as that would validate any religious beliefs that they have. For example, some Christians might have thought this could have been a sign from God that we're being evil. That's a weak example, I know, but it's merely designed to illustrate the proper perspective when it comes to things of this nature.

To me though, it's just another meteorite that fell from the sky, and is being taken by some very smart, and now rich person for study. Too bad that I didn't get there first.
