Dyatlov Pass incident

Dyatlov Pass incident
The Dyatlov Pass incident (Russian: Гибель тургруппы Дятлова) refers to the unsolved deaths of nine ski hikers in the northern Ural Mountains in the Soviet Union (now Russia) between 1 February and 2 February 1959. The area in which the incident took place was named Dyatlov Pass in honor of the group's leader, Igor Dyatlov. The experienced trekking group, who were all from the Ural Polytechnical Institute, had established a camp on the slopes of Kholat Syakhl when disaster struck. During the night, something caused them to tear their way out of their tents and to flee the campsite while inadequately dressed during a heavy snowfall and sub-zero temperature. After the discovery of the group's bodies, Soviet Union investigators determined that six victims died from hypothermia and that the three others showed signs of physical trauma. Access to the region was closed to expeditions and hikers for three years after the incident. Background[edit] Expedition[edit] Dyatlov Pass Investigation[edit] Related:  Wiki: Mysteries

Things You Didn't Know That Occur While Traveling Whether you’re a first-time or frequent flyer, there’s a lot left to learn about the process of flying. From curb to check-in to sitting in your seat and taking off, the following 5 tips — and the below infographic, chock-full of information — will make flying easier and more transparent. 1. Checking in is Important Unless you’ve chosen — and, potentially, paid for — your particular seat on the plane, you must be sure to check in before you actually head to the airport. Of course, not everyone is willing to pay an extra $20 or more for a particular seat, so the hidden or up-charged areas could potentially become available at a normal price to those who check in fastest. 2. Imagine that you’re traveling in a group of four and searching online for four airline seats. That’s right. See Also: 8 Reasons why travel should be a part of your life 3. It probably comes as no surprise that flights on Friday incur higher travel fares than other days of the week. 4. 5. Source: Stsintelli

Creatures Mythical Magical & Supernatural | Witcheslore All who believe in witches and magic also believe in magical creatures, witches and sorcerers have a telepathic link with them. Mythical creatures were said to be bringers of gifts and messages sent by the deities.

Taman Shud Case Following a public appeal by police, the copy of the Rubaiyat from which the page had been torn was located. On the inside back cover of the book, detectives were able to read – in indentions from handwriting – a local telephone number, another unidentified number and a text that resembled an encrypted message. The text has not been deciphered or interpreted in a way that satisfies authorities on the case. The case has been considered, since the early stages of the police investigation, "one of Australia's most profound mysteries".[1] There has been intense speculation ever since regarding the identity of the victim, the cause of his death and the events leading up to it. In addition to intense public interest in Australia during the late 1940s and early 1950s, the Tamam Shud case also attracted international attention.

UVB-76, also known as "the Buzzer", is the nickname given by radio listeners to a shortwave radio station that broadcasts on the frequency 4625 kHz.[1][2] It broadcasts a short, monotonous buzz tone , repeating at a rate of approximately 25 tones per minute, 24 hours per day.[1] Sometimes, the buzzer signal is interrupted and a voice transmission in Russian takes place.[3] The first reports were made of a station on this frequency in 1982.[4] Its origins have been traced to Russia, and although several theories with varying degrees of plausibility exist, its actual purpose has never been officially confirmed and remains a source of speculation.[5] The name[edit] Format[edit] A spectrum for UVB-76 showing the suppressed lower sideband. The station transmits using AM with a suppressed lower sideband (R3E), but it has also used full double-sideband AM (A3E).

Vegvísir The vegvísir A Vegvísir (Icelandic 'sign post') is an Icelandic magical stave intended to help the bearer find their way through rough weather. The symbol is attested in the Huld Manuscript, collected in Iceland by Geir Vigfusson in 1860 (but consisting of material of earlier origin).[1] A leaf of the manuscript[2] provides an image of the vegvísir, gives its name, and, in prose, declares that "if this sign is carried, one will never lose one's way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known".[3] Notes[edit] References[edit]

Baltic Sea anomaly The Baltic Sea anomaly is a 60-metre (200 ft) circular rock-like formation on the floor of the Baltic Sea, discovered by Peter Lindberg, Dennis Åsberg and their Swedish "Ocean X" diving team in June 2011. The team reported that the formation rests on a pillar and includes a structure similar in appearance to a staircase, leading to a dark hole. Commentators have suggested that the structure could be a World War II anti-submarine device, a battleship gun turret, sediment dropped by a fishing trawler, or a flying saucer. Discovery[edit] The discovery was made on June 19, 2011 by the Swedish based "Ocean X Team" during a dive in the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Finland while searching for an old shipwreck. Description[edit] The Ocean X team has published one additional close-up sonar scan on their Web site and nine additional close-up sonar scans on their YouTube page that appear to show a 90-degree angle and other features of the object.[8][9] Chemical composition[edit] [edit] Criticism[edit]

5 Steps to Do Less in Life Are you wondering why the heck we’re teaching you how to do less in life? Modern life is a stressful cacophony of items calling for our attention.

Deaths of Kris Kremers and Lisanne Froon Kris Kremers and Lisanne Froon were Dutch students who disappeared on April 1, 2014, while hiking in Panama. After an extensive search, portions of their bodies were found a few months later. Their cause of death could not be determined definitively, but Dutch authorities working with forensic and search-rescue investigators thought it likely the students had accidentally fallen from a cliff after becoming lost.[3] The circumstances and aftermath of their disappearance have resulted in much speculation about the cause of death.[4][3] Foul play could not be entirely ruled out and Panamanian officials came under fire for allegedly mishandling the disappearance and aftermath.[5][6] Further investigation into the case in 2017 uncovered enough new evidence to suggest foul play,[7] as well as a possible link to other murders in the area.[8] Background[edit] Disappearance[edit] Kremers and Froon arrived in Panama for a six-week vacation on March 15, 2014.

untitled Devil's Footprints The Devil's Footprints was a phenomenon that occurred during February 1855 around the Exe Estuary in East and South Devon, England. After a heavy snowfall, trails of hoof-like marks appeared overnight in the snow covering a total distance of some 40 to 100 miles (60 to 160 km). The footprints were so called because some people believed that they were the tracks of Satan, as they were allegedly made by a cloven hoof. Many theories have been made to explain the incident, and some aspects of its veracity have also been questioned. Incident[edit] On the night of 8–9 February 1855 and one or two later nights,[1] after a heavy snowfall, a series of hoof-like marks appeared in the snow. "It appears on Thursday night last, there was a very heavy snowfall in the neighbourhood of Exeter and the South of Devon. The area in which the prints appeared extended from Exmouth, up to Topsham, and across the Exe Estuary to Dawlish and Teignmouth.[4] R.H. Evidence[edit] Theories[edit] Balloon[edit]

Scaphism, also known as the boats, was an ancient Persian method of execution designed to inflict torturous death that was described by the Persians' archenemies, the Greeks. The name comes from the Greek σκάφη, skáphe, meaning "anything scooped (or hollowed) out". The intended victim was stripped naked and then firmly fastened within the interior space of two narrow rowing boats (or hollowed-out tree trunks) joined together one on top of the other with the head, hands and feet protruding. The condemned was forced to ingest milk and honey, and more honey would be poured on him to attract insects, with special attention devoted to the eyes, ears, mouth, face, genitals, and anus. In some cases, the executioner would mix milk and honey and pour that mixture all over the victim. He would then be left to float on a stagnant pond or be exposed to the sun.
