EXCLUSIVE: Pictured up close for the first time, Scientology’s ‘alien space cathedral and spaceship landing pad’ built in the New Mexico desert for the ‘return of followers after Armageddon on Earth’ (Daily Mail Aug 16, 2013):

  • Tunnels stretch for hundreds of feet into cliff behind unassuming facade and reportedly hold sacred texts
  • Mysterious pair of overlapping circles with a diamond inside believed to be navigation markers for space craft
  • Compound is 20 miles from nearest town and has a landing strip and its own water supply
  • MailOnline can today reveal the first close-up pictures of the Church of Scientology’s ‘alien space cathedral’ built in a remote part of the New Mexico desert.

    The mysterious building which leads to an underground vault sits next to two giant symbols carved into the ground – believed to be markers for the religion’s followers to find their way back from the ends of the universe after humanity is destroyed in the future.

    While no one knows the definite meaning of the pair of overlapping circles, each with a diamond in them, it is believed to have been trademarked by the Church of Technology, a branch of Scientology.

    WTF – Why Is China Building These Gigantic Structures In the Middle of the Desert? (GIZMODO, Nov 13, 2011):

    This is crazy. New photos have appeared in Google Maps showing unidentified titanic structures in the middle of the Chinese desert. The first one is an intricate network of what appears to be huge metallic stripes. Is this a military experiment?

    Update: readers are finding more weird stuff.

    They seem to be wide lines drawn with some white material. Or maybe the dust have been dug by machinery.

    It’s located in Dunhuang, Jiuquan, Gansu, north of the Shule River, which crosses the Tibetan Plateau to the west into the Kumtag Desert. It covers an area approximately one mile long by more than 3,000 feet wide.

    The tracks are perfectly executed, and they seem to be designed to be seen from orbit.

    Perhaps it’s some kind of targeting or calibrating grid for Chinese spy satellites? Maybe it’s a QR code for aliens? Nobody really knows.

    You can check it out yourself in Google Maps here.

    · Green energy glasshouses may transform arid areas
    · Fresh water will end need to dig wells, say architects

    Vast greenhouses that use sea water for crop cultivation could be combined with solar power plants to provide food, fresh water and clean energy in deserts, under an ambitious proposal from a team of architects and engineers.

    The Sahara Forest Project, which is already running demonstration plants in Tenerife, Oman and the United Arab Emirates, envisages huge greenhouses with concentrated solar power (CSP), a technology that uses mirrors to focus the sun’s rays, creating steam to drive turbines to generate electricity.

    The installations would turn deserts into lush patches of vegetation, according to its designers, and do away with the need to dig wells for fresh water, an activity that has depleted aquifers across the world.
