Dropas Crash: 10,000 BC

Dropas Crash: 10,000 BC - Sino-Tibetan Border


High in the mountains of BayanKara-Ula, on the boarders of China and Tibet - a team of archeologists were conducting a very detailed routine survey of a series of interlinked caves.

Their interests had been excited by the discovery of lines of neatly arranged graves which contained the skeletons of what must have been a strange race of human beings; strange because they had unnaturally spindly bodies and large, over-developed heads. At first, it had been thought that the caves had been the home of a hitherto unkown species of ape. But as the leader of the team - the Chinese archeologist, Professor Chi Pu Tei - pointed out, "Who ever heard of apes burying each other?"

It was while studying the skeletons that one of the team stumbled on a large, round stone disk, half buried in the dust on the floor of the cave. The team gathered round the discovery, turning it this way and that. It looked, absurdly, like a kind of 'Stone Age Gramophone record'. There was a hole in the center and a fine, spiral groove radiated to the rim. Closer inspection, however, showed that the groove was, in fact, a continous spiralling line of closely written characters. The object was a 'record' ... in more ways then one. Only nobody at the time - the year was 1938 - possessed the key to its incredible message.

The disc was labeled and filed away among other finds in the area. Even those who knew of its existence knew nothing of its meaning. Many experts tried to translate the hieroglyphs in the 20 years the disc languished in Peking. They all failed. It was not until another professor -Dr. Tsum Um Nui - broke the code and started to decipher the 'speaking grooves' that the extraordinary implications of the disc were realized. Realized, that is, only by only a select few. The outside world remained in ignorance. For the professor's conclusions on the neaning of the disc were so shattering that they were offically suppressed. The Peking Academy of Pre-History forbade him to publish his findings.

Two years later, in 1965, the professor and four of his colleagues were finally given permission to reveal their theory. It appeared under the long-winded but intriguing title, "The Grooved Script concerning Space-ships which, as recorded on the Discs, landed on Earth 12,000 years ago".

The 'records' - 716 of the grooved discs were later uncovered in the same caves - told an astonishing story of a 'space probe' by the inhabitants of another planet which came to grief in the Bayan-Kara-Ula mountain range. The strange, spiral script told how the peaceful intentions of the 'aliens' had been misunderstood and how many of them were hunted down and killed by members of the Ham tribe, who lived in the neighboring caves.

According to Tsum Um Nui, one of the lines of the hieroglyphs read, "The Dropas came down from the clouds in their aircraft. Our men, women and children hid in the caves ten times before sunrise. When at last they understood the sign language of the Dropas, they realized that the newcomers had peaceful intentions... Another section expressed 'regret' by the Ham tribe that the aliens' spaceship had crash-landed in such a remote and inaccessible mountains and that there had been no way to building a new one to enable Dropas to return to their own planet.

In the years since the discovery of the first disc, archeologists and anthropologists had learned more about the isolated Bayan-Kara-Ula area. And much of the information seemed to corroborate the bizarre story recorded on the discs.

Legend still preserved in the area spoke of small, gaunt, yellow faced men who 'came from the clouds, long, long ago'. The men had huge, bulging heads and puny bodies and were so ugly and repellent that they were hounded down by local tribesmen on horseback. Strangely, the description of the 'invaders' tallied with the skeletons orginally discovered in the caves by Professor Chi Pu Tei. On the walls of the caves themselves archeologists had uncovered crude pictures of the rising Sun, the Moon, unidentifiable stars and the Earth... all joined together by lines of pea-sized dots. Along with the discs, the cave drawings had been dated around 12,000 years old.

The cave area was still inhabited by two semi-troglodyte tribes known as the Hams and the Dropas, themselves extremely odd in appearance. The frail and stunted tribesmen averaged only about five feet in height and were neither typically Chinese nor Tibetan. "Their racial ack-ground," said one expert, "is a mystery."But even with the publications of Professor Tsum Um Nui's amazing translation, the story of the 'space discs' was not over. Russian scientists asked to see the discs and several were sent to Moscow for examination. They were scraped free of rock particles which had stuck to them and then put through chemical analysis. To the suprise of the scientists, they we found to contain large amounts of cobalt and other metallic substances. That was not all. When placed on a special turntable - according to Dr. Vyatcheslav Saizev, who described the experiments in the Soviet magazine Sputnik - they vibrated or 'hummed' in an unusual rhythm as though an electic charge was passing through them. Or as one scientist suggested, "as if they formed some part of an electrical circuit." At some time, they had clearly been exposed to extraordinarily high votages.

Did the discs actually record an abortive space mission by alien astronauts 12,000 years ago? Nearly all the leading 'space speculators' - theorists like Erich von Daniken and Peter Kolosimo - believe so. For once one accepts the proposition that aliens may have already have visted earth, then it follows that some of their space-probes must have failed and the astronauts must have been destroyed.

How about pictures? Links? Any publishings? For the person who has never heard this story before, anything to suggest that it is anything more than just a story?

I only found information about this on UFO sites. I couldn't find any pictures or anything like that. I think a find like that would have been on the news within hours and it would be in our historybooks now. It seems to me to be nothing more than a nice story, until anyone comes with real proof or at least a scientific publication about the discs or the skeletons.

Agreed. No proof = no reason to believe

all it takes is a bit of research.

You can find info on the Dropa's here

How very 'human' of us. Will we ever learn? This was supposed to have happened 12000 years ago, yet I read recently about a gray being killed by a security guard for the same reasons. I don't know if any of the stories are true, but if so, the reactions of the humans involved were quite typical.

I would say, instead of it being "very human" of us, it is very natural of us.

Most other Mammals and other animals would do the same.

I think sometimes, even though we have been a very evil race at times, we shoudl be given a break.

i heard that this dropa stuff was just a big story?

It surely is an interesting story. I've never heard it before. I did a bit of a google search and found this.

My search didn't give me much at all except for mostly just some UFO related webpages. So that doesn't give this story much credit.

You know what? I can respect that, but as an ATS user I have to say I don't mind discussing these topics again from time to time from a different point of view.
There are only so many of these topics that can exist. There are only so many mysteries... but does that mean that we have to drag up the old threads everytime we want to discuss theories?

Definitely faked. For one thing, "Dr. Tsum Um Nui " is not a Chinese name nor is it Tibetan. "Chi Pu Tei " isn't, either.

(HUGE list of Chinese first names)

In these "startling discoveries" the quickest check for truth is to see if there's any record of the scientists mentioned. When they're non-Western scientists, the quickest check is to see if the family names and first names are Real Names in that culture.

Most of the hoaxers, when making this stuff up, know nothing about it. So if you see the famous Hawaiian scientist, Dr. Hapla Kopo Maumauar, a quick check on Hawaiian names will show that the referred "scientist" is someone that I just made up on the spot.

These yellow faced people made me remember a post i read a few minutes ago.
There is supposed to be war or something dealing with a secret society called the yellows, which are bases in east asia.

Maybe these yellow faced people are related in some way to the secret society, the yellows.

Maybe the story itself is a chopped up version of what really happened, and the names themselves represent the "real" people that were involoved.It is not hard to believe that a crash of e.t. craft is possible, if they are out there and they are flying then perhaps they can crash as well.The story itself reads like a fiction, but maybe there is more to the story that meets the eye.
