The crater of Lonar – evidence of nuclear war in Ancient India
We offer to your attention the article by P. Oleksenko is devoted to the topical theme that recently often heard on TV – the possibility of using nuclear weapons in the past. The author actively participated in one of these programs on REN TV. Already in the early works of P. Oleksenko answer its question about the possibility of using nuclear weapons in the past is positive, comparing the “caked green glass,” formed by nuclear explosions – trinitite. with “green sintered glass”, found during archaeological excavations and in the craters. Later he develops this theme on the example of Lonar crater, formed about 650 thousand years ago in the basalts of Deccan trap formation (65 million years) in India, and shows on the basis of geological facts and legends, the crater of Lonar and two other smaller crater next to it were formed as a result of the use of “weapons of the gods” (and here ). However, he believes that it was not a nuclear weapon, vacuum bomb, plasma gun, fusion torch or some other weapon of the gods.
The work of P. Oleksenko should be of great interest to readers. However, in my opinion, she should continue. The author pays much attention to Lonar crater, tektites and impactites and says very little about other podobnikar. But the frequency of their occurrence, location, and age can provide invaluable information that will not only talk about the possibility of using “weapons of the gods” in the past. but to sketch the scene of fighting and to determine, on the basis of joint analysis of geological facts, ancient manuscripts and legends, who was warring parties.
A crater similar to the crater of Lonar known in the South of Laos (information obtained from a reliable source). Its diameter is also about 2 km and it is also filled with water. The lake depth is about 70 m. As the lake Lonar some kind of underground river feeds the crater lake in the South of Laos, and it remains filled with water throughout the year. Photographing walls and the bottom of the lake using mini-chambers operated underwater robots showed the presence on the walls of the crater bas-reliefs, and at the bottom of the pyramid.
Judging by the given by P. Oleksenko and I know data, similar craters on Earth quite a lot. Very interesting noted by the author pair the location of craters on opposite sides of the globe, which allows to hypothesize about the possibility of a nuclear exchange (or any other) impacts in the past.
The author briefly reviews and development zone “sintered glass” and tektites and impactites in Egypt, the middle East, in India, on the border of Libya, Chad and the Sudan and in other regions. But they sometimes occupy vast areas, and their formation cannot be explained by falling meteorites (at least, the collision of asteroids with earth). Large fields of tektites obscure origin known in Indochina – in the place where according to legend, was (along with India) hostilities.
Map of distribution of tektites and impactites and similar breeds, while not having a clear classification, should provide additional material for the compilation of the map of hostilities in the past.
In conclusion, brief summary of the work of P. Oleksenko “Crater of Lonar – evidence of nuclear war in Ancient India” I want to disagree with his assertion that this crater could not be formed in the explosion of a nuclear bomb. If you used rocket launchers to deliver nuclear bombs from opposite ends of the globe, the collision of bombs with the land of the flight trajectory and impact, apparently, was supposed to be similar to the collision of asteroids with earth – and then another blast occurred. Although, of course, an explosion could occur and in the air.
The absence of radioactivity of rocks in the crater, nothing. Currently, the main “fuel” of nuclear bombs are coming into the chain fission reaction U235 and Pu239. In their decay formed radioactive isotopes Cs137, I131, Zr95, Sr90, C14. The half-life of Cs137 – 30,16 years, I131 – 8 days, Zr95 – 65 days, Sr90 – 28.6 years, and only 14 C is 5570 years. However, still came to nobody to mind to consider it a result of explosions of nuclear bombs.
There’s always a chance
what it once was. DEJAVU!
February 6, 1947 in the newspaper “new York Herald tribune” published an article about an unusual archaeological anomalies. The article busily and without much reasoning or conclusions were reported as follows:
When in new Mexico was exploded the first atomic bomb, desert sand at the landfill agglomerated into green glass. This fact attracted the attention of some archaeologists. They conducted excavations in the valley of the Euphrates and found a layer of agricultural crops, Dating back to the VI Millennium BC. then an earlier layer of pastoralist culture and even more ancient cave culture. And then they discovered another layer, consisting of sintered… green glass.
Of course, sintered glass could be formed as a result of powerful lightning strikes during a thunderstorm. There appears to be some kind of archaeological and geological oddities called the thunderbolts. This branched tubular aggregates sintered green glass formed as a result of lightning strikes. But the fact that the lightning strikes can’t be turned into more or less homogeneous mass of green glass the whole region of the desert. Many researchers adhere to the hypothesis about the existence of paloozaville, believe that these areas appeared as a result of the use of nuclear and thermonuclear weapons in the ancient wars.
Conventional academic science rejects this idea and indicates that, for example, meteorites of large size have sufficient energy for the formation of large areas of glass if dropped on a desert location. But the fact that meteor strikes leave craters, while the aerial nuclear explosions lead to the release of huge amounts of thermal energy, melting the silicon base of desert sand and dirt without the formation of craters. It looked like a layer of “green glass” in the Sahara desert. Mesopotamia and other areas: the large area of the sintered vitreous mass and no craters.
Similar evidence of the use of nuclear weapons in the past can also be found in Egypt (and here). in the middle East and the Indian subcontinent. In the southwest Egyptian desert, on the border of Egypt, Libya and Sudan is a huge area of the sintered green glass, known as “Libyan desert glass”. In ancient India entire cities were “vitrification” (glazing materials) under the influence of extreme temperatures. The example of the city of Mohenjo – Daro. In confirmation of this in ancient Indian texts, especially the epics of the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. described a Grand war with the use of different weapons (and here ), including “weapons of the gods”, which literally could level the earth and destroy all life.
And perhaps one of the most striking evidences of such ancient wars is a mysterious loner the crater (Lonar, 9°58 N, 76°31 E), located in the district of Buldhana (Buldhana) to 160 km from Aurangabad (Aurangabad) in the Indian state of Maharashtra, 400 km from Mumbai.
The lake (crater) Lunar – place, “where the star fell to the Ground”
Except for a few scientific publications and references in Hindu Scriptures, the lake is virtually unknown to the outside world. Lonar lake ( Lonar Lake ) translated from the Marathi language, means “salty lake”, it was formed in the crater of Lonar, the origin of which remains unclear. On the periphery of the lake there are 14 temples built in the 12-13 century. The oldest one is 1300 years old.
Scientists believe the crater of Lonar one of explosive meteorite craters. The diameter of the crater – 2 154 m. the diameter of the lake 1 830 meters, depth – 170 meters according to other estimates – up to 250 meters. This is one of the few impact craters on Earth in basalts. The crater retains much of its original form, partly because of lack of glaciation in this area of India and also the hardness of the volcanic rocks that constitute most of its base. In some places you can see on the walls of the growing crater rhinestone. The largest such crater is the crater of Resumator (Bosumatur) in Ghana, South Africa, the diameter of which is 10 000 meters. Second in this category is in the crater of New Quebec in Canada, its $ 3 500 meters. Canjan Diablow crater in Arizona, USA, has a diameter 1,300 m
