Scientists say that the mystery of the Patomsky crater is still unsolved, and not disclosed, perhaps because they do not dare to name what they found.
As the brilliant French thinker and philosopher of the 18th century Claude Helvetius noted: “Falsehoods are sometimes such that their further construction requires more consideration and intelligence than the discovery of Truth”.
The Patomsky crater is located in a hard-to-reach remote deserted place, on the Patomsky mid-mountain massif, approximately 600 kilometers northeast of Lake Baikal, in the forested hills of the Bodaibo district of the Irkutsk region.
For science, the crater was discovered by geologist Vladimir Kolpakov in 1949.
The crater is similar in shape to a truncated cone, its height is about 40 meters. It consists of a mound of crushed stones (limestone), mostly up to 1 meter in size, there are blocks of 5 m or more. The top of the truncated crater cone is 76 meters in diameter. Along the perimeter of the summit, the stones lie in places in two rows. Closer to the center is a circular moat with a diameter of about 34 meters. In the very center of the crater there is a round spherical hill, like a half of a ball, about 12-15 meters high.
Local Evenks and Yakuts have known about the existence of this crater for a long time. They called it "Fiery Eagle's Nest". The legend of the crater has been passed down from generation to generation and must not have been born out of nowhere. Perhaps their ancestors saw in that area a flying meteorite, a comet, or some kind of luminous object that "landed on a nest." Climbing the mountain, people saw a deepening, and in the center a hill similar to an egg. Tying everything together, they called it: “The nest of the fiery eagle”.
The first scientific expedition to the Patomsky crater was in 1963, then several more. No meteorite material was found on the crater. The researchers analyzed over 800 kilograms of soil in the vicinity of the crater and under a microscope found microscopic metal balls of magnetized iron ore in the samples. There are 101 balls in total, ranging in size from 0.5 to 120 microns. In the samples, there were also curved metal-colored microscopic plastics resembling steel shavings in appearance. Similar things were previously found all over the world: in Antarctica, Greenland, in sedimentary rocks taken at depth from the bottom of the ocean, on beaches, in ancient terrestrial deposits, on roofs of houses, in a word, everywhere. Science calls them cosmic dust (micrometeorites), which falls to the ground every day in tons. Scientists, based on the results of their research, firmly stated that the crater, by all indications, was not a meteorite impact, not an explosion of a space object, and not a volcano.
Then what is it?
The radioactive background in the vicinity of the crater is 11 μR/hour (in cities, on average 9-15 μR/hour), and on the crater itself, the radiation on the stone placer is 5 μR/hour. That is, there is nothing unusual in the radioactive background either.
According to the annual rings on the cuts of living and dry larch at the base of the embankment, scientists determined the approximate age of the formation of the crater from 280-500 years ago. The oldest larch on the slope of the crater scree began to grow from 1770.
Official science is lost in conjectures and at the same time does not dare to cross the forbidden line that they themselves have established. Some stubbornly believe that alien aliens can never arrive on Earth, since the nearest stars are very far away. If we can't, then they can't, they think.
Orthodox monks in the Middle Ages also did not believe that the Earth was round and revolved around the Sun, and freethinkers who disagreed with them happened to be sent to the stake. Later militant dogmatists did not believe that microbes existed on Earth. They did not believe until free minds invented the microscope. Numerous oral testimonies of people in different countries and at different times, photos and videos of UFOs are proof in itself.
As Galileo Galilei said: "Science begins only with the death of dogma".
We list below what researchers have discovered to date, talked about it in their articles, books, scientific reports and try to explain it.
One of the keys to unraveling the "Patom Crater" is its unusual shape. If you understand how it was created, then you can answer some of the "riddles".
Scientists said that at the top of the crater, a shaft of stones runs along the circumference, which in places consists of two parallel rows. Moreover, the outer row of the shaft is younger, and the inner row is older.
How can this be explained?
If you look very carefully at the picture (it is more noticeable in a close-up), then the embankment at the top of the crater has a more “fresh”, and lighter in color belt, on which there are no trees yet. The width of this young belt is approximately 20-30 meters. Its slope is several degrees steeper than the main slope. If we imagine that this belt of the embankment does not exist (if it is mentally removed), then, projecting upward the plane of the old scree ... - according to the angle of inclination, it will just come out on the older, inner crest of the rampart.
The inner row of the annular shaft and the old embankment are a single whole, formed at the same time. And the outer crest and the young belt are a formation created later.
In the foreground of the picture, you can see that the inner row of the shaft is separated from the outer row by a long narrow strip of trees.
This young belt makes up approximately 5% of the entire volume of the crater mound.
How is it that the young belt and rows of ramparts at the top of the crater are separated?
This could happen if a new portion of crushed stones was “crushed” on the old mound of the crater - from above along the entire perimeter. So, as if the "fiery eagle" dug up its nest, and threw the stones out. Then a really fresh embankment will differ from the old "youth" and a slightly steeper slope. This can be seen in the photo of the crater.
Two ramparts - two different mounds of stones separated by time.
The mass of the crater stones is estimated to be approximately one million tons.
Taking into account the density of limestone - it turns out about 0.5 million cubic meters. (For comparison, the volume of stone blocks of the pyramid of Cheops is 2.58 million cubic meters).
Half a million cubic meters of stones were brought to the surface from underground under the crater. By what technology 280-500 years ago they dug up the mountainside, raised solid rock to the surface, crushed it and scattered it like a fan evenly around the perimeter - it is not known. It is already clear from the huge amount of work that this was done using a highly developed technology that humanity does not have.
Around the crater, the researchers found many larches with mechanical damage. In the trunk of one, they even found a hole from a stone.
When large blocks of limestone were crushed, it happened that individual stones flew in all directions, like “bullets” at high speed. About the same way, fragments of the shell of a strong walnut scatter from a strong blow to it.
According to the annual rings, the researchers calculated that mechanical damage to the trees was inflicted in 1841-1842. It is possible that the outer shaft of stones at the top and the young belt were piled up at the same time.
At the base of the embankment in places lie huge boulders several meters in size. Apparently, they rolled down from the top when the rock was taken out of the crater shaft, scattering it in a circle on the top. Separate large blocks, rolling down, brought down and broke the trees below, which are now located there.
Electromagnetic reconnaissance established that the channel of the crater is filled with stones, the same as the entire mound. In the channel of the crater, going, presumably, at a right angle to the mountain slope, at a depth of about 100-120 meters, they discovered an unknown metal object of high electrical conductivity.
Its shape resembles a cylinder (or spindle). Researchers disagree on the size of the object. Some called that it is 6 - 16 meters long, and about 3 meters in the upper diameter. Others that the object is much larger (up to 600 meters), it is deeper, and the projection (to the surface) of its center is located 400 meters south of the crater (downhill towards the stream). Scientists cautiously suggested that it could be unfreezing salt water surrounded by permafrost.
What is this mysterious metal cylinder located in the crater shaft and what is the huge underground object of high electrical conductivity under the crater?
If the volume of the outer stones of the crater, raised from the ground, is about 0.5 million cubic meters, then this means that exactly this volume (or slightly less, taking into account the density of the crushed rock), the object (or room) is located under the crater.
The vertical shaft of the crater, along which the rock was raised to the surface, has a diameter of at least 10 meters, since there are blocks of a maximum size of up to 9 meters in the crater mound. Most likely, the lifting shaft was much larger - up to 30 meters in diameter. Crushed stone, which was lifted and scattered around the perimeter, rolled in both directions - out (to the forest) and inside the "nest". Thus, an annular ditch was formed in the center of the crater - between the rampart and the central hill.
A metal cylinder located at a depth of 100-120 meters can be a lock entrance to an underground room, a research probe, a transceiver or have any other purpose.
If we assume that the “cylinder” is an alien ship made of high-strength material that crashed and crashed into a rock at speed, then there would be a deep hole at the crash site, but there is an embankment there. If we assume that, after a while in 1842 (or earlier), an alien rescue expedition dug a mine, trying to extract a cylinder from the rock, but could not do it for some reason, after which the raised rock fell asleep back into the pit, then on the surface again, there would not be such a large volume of soil that we now see. This means that there was no UFO accident and the object was placed underground purposefully.
What is in a huge underground room of high electrical conductivity is not known. It is possible that the alien base is underground, filled with equipment.
On cuts of trees from 1842 over the next 40 years, a significant increase in the width of the annual rings was found, that is, the trees grew faster. Also, more radioactive elements were found in wood (2 times more strontium and 3 times more uranium). After a forty-year period of accelerated growth, there was a sharp narrowing of the rings and a return to normal. Scientists say that tree roots can absorb more radiation as the earth's temperature rises.
How to explain the increased amount of radiation in the rings of trees?
If the power plant at the underground base of aliens had been operating in active mode for 40 years since 1842, then it could produce heat, from which the earth warmed up in the district. For this reason, the trees grew better, their annual rings expanded rapidly, and the wood absorbed more radiation from the soil. It is possible that after that the power system suspended its active phase of operation, switched to standby mode, or was completely mothballed.
In what mode the underground base is currently operating is not known.
What is the purpose of the base?
It is likely that the aliens studied the processes taking place inside our planet, conducted observation and analysis, periodically visited the object, checked and updated its contents. The "Fire Eagle" flew to its "nest". He dug the shaft down to the cylinder. Taking stones out of the mine, he poured in the outer annular shaft and the young belt encircling the crater. Having done what was required, he backfilled the entrance to the mine. As a result, a flat stone hill was formed from above.
By the way, people saw something similar on television news, when an American rover drilled holes in the surface on the planet Mars and took soil from them for analysis. - That is, the logic of the behavior of researchers is similar here and there.
On the air of Komsomolskaya Pravda radio in March-April 2022, a reading of the book “The Mystery of the Patom Crater” was held (its authors Sergey Moiseenko and Yazev Sergey).
At the end of the radio broadcast, the editor-in-chief of KP, Vladimir Sungorkin, said that under the auspices of the editorial board, in August 2022, a new scientific expedition might be organized to the crater ...
Our planet Earth is about 4.54 billion years old, the Sun is 4.57 billion years old, and the age of the Universe is estimated at 13.8 billion years. Comparing these figures, it is clear that life on Earth is much younger.
When the Earth and the Sun did not yet exist, when they were cosmic dust, or other earlier planets consisted of their matter, then life in the Universe already existed and developed for several billion years.
What level of development has reached life in the universe, what knowledge have you reached?
In the Universe (taking into account how new planets arise and old planets die) there is undoubtedly more, as well as less developed life.
More developed aliens, observing people on Earth - how they in their madness acquire material "wealth" that they do not need, how they rob each other, fight among themselves for power, how they kill their own kind - they will not enter into contacts with underdeveloped humanity . They will not pass on their knowledge to people. Because they understand that thoughtless mankind turns all the knowledge gained to their own detriment: to the development of new weapons, to the enslavement and destruction of their own kind.
Aliens have been watching the development of humanity for hundreds of years.
Some newly arrived "guests" are studying various biological forms of life on the planet. In hardly accessible uninhabited areas (in the mountains, in the seas, in the taiga), they build bases for observing the cosmic processes of planetary development, for example, the Patom crater. It is possible that they keep there, some samples of earthly life, in case humanity destroys itself in its madness.
Sometimes their ships land in densely populated areas and leave greeting messages to earthlings in the wheat fields - bizarre "congratulatory" pictures, over which the scientific humanity has been "breaking their heads" for years.
Perhaps the aliens voluntarily took on the responsibility of protecting the Earth from large comets and meteorites, exploding them in the atmosphere on approaching the Earth. For example, on June 30, 1908, the Tunguska meteorite exploded above the Earth at an altitude of 10 km. If it had not exploded in the atmosphere, then, based on its flight path, it would have slipped across the Earth. The meteorite would plow a huge furrow and, possibly, wipe out many cities from the face of the planet, starting from the Urals and further: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Helsinki and others.
Another example that contemporaries observed was that on February 15, 2013, the Chebarkul meteorite was split in the sky over the Southern Urals.
Aliens have been living on Earth for a long time. There are more than enough desert places for them on the continents and in the oceans. They have studied the earthlings and they have no need to meet with them.
People still do not know what life is, what is its essence, what is the matter-bearer of life? Therefore, they cannot imagine how life can exist on various other planets and in what forms of living matter it manifests itself.
The Patom crater is more than one hundred years old, and people have only recently found it, and for another hundred years they will wonder what it is. They will not be able to dig out this stone mountain. They do not have any technical ability to do this, and they will not do it if they wish, because the resources of states are directed to the wrong goals.
