In 2002, Discovery Channel commissioned 5 aeronautics and astronautics students from MIT to create crop circles of their own. Discovery's production team consulted with crop circle researcher Nancy Talbott, who provided them with three attributes which she believed set "real" crop circles apart from known man-made circles such as those created by Doug and Dave. These criteria were:
1. Elongated apical plant stem nodes.
2. Expulsion cavities in the plant stems.
3. The presence of 10-50 micrometer diameter magnetized iron spheres in the soils, distributed linearly.
Talbott also expressed concerns that the iron particles were not distributed laterally. Furthermore, she felt that the team's use of night vision .sets and other technologically advanced items ( Microwave emitters and the "Flammschmeisser" to spray iron particles through a heated ring), would be out of reach for the average hoaxer.
For many years, flying over the traditional English places that have crop circles inside (Wiltshire, Hampshire, Sussex etc…) we have been aware that sometimes, where last year a crop existed, after one year, after a new crop has grown, we have been able to catch sight, from above, of "signs" that mark off those plant areas that had been impressed into the soil forming the patterned outline.

Has there been any type of radiation found in the soil of the parts that have been cut out or tromped down?
The magnetized iron spheres are a definite mystery. Since it is stated that they are not able to be produced naturally or artificially, what else could create this other than ET's?
