Some people believe aliens have been visiting our planet for millions, maybe billions of years. This statement is hard to prove, but supported by the discovery of many artifacts that are out of place and out of time. It’s true that nature sometimes creates objects that look artificial, but the ones we are going to show you look like they were made by human or alien hands.
The Vladivostok UFO Aluminium Gear
When a man from Vladivostok, Russia broke a piece of coal he was using to light a fire, he probably had the surprise of a lifetime. Inside the piece of coal was a fragment of a tooth wheel. The man became curios and handed it over to some scientists. When they tested it, they found out that it was made from almost pure aluminium and they were certain it was artificially made. But the biggest surprise came when they carbon-dated it and found out it was 300 million years old.
Aluminium this pure does not form naturally and humans started making it on a large scale in 1854. Also, aluminum parts similar in size to this one are used in delicate equipment. Is this a part of an UFO that crashed on Earth in the Carboniferous period or is it a piece of a technical device lost by time-travelling humans? We may never know.
The 300-Million-Year-Old Screw
On October 7, 1996 a group of researchers were on an expedition to locate asteroid/meteorite fragments in the Kaluga region in Western Russia. They weren’t planning on discovering an out-of-place artifact that still has everyone scratching their heads. Researcher Dimitri Kurkov was the first to handle a strange stone that had caught his eye. After cleaning the dirt off it, he saw a bolt embedded in the rock. At first, the researchers thought they had discovered a piece of farm machinery but further analysis revealed that the screw was embedded in the rock. Geologists have estimated the age or the rock at around 320-300 million years old.
The Aiud Artifact
Construction workers digging on the banks of the Mures river near the city of Aiud in Romania found this strange object in 1974. Under a layer of 35 feet of sediment they found a wedge-shaped object, about 8 inches long and 5 inches wide and weighing around 5 pounds. For 21 years it sat in a storage room at the Historical Museum of Transylvania. In 1995 it was rediscovered and sent to analysis.
When the results came back, everybody was shocked to find out that the object was made from an aluminium alloy that also contained copper, silicon, zinc, lead, tin, zirconium and cadmium. It was discovered together with the ancient bones of a mastodon that had been dated at 11,000 years old. Aeronautical engineers said that this object looks a lot like the foot of a landing gear, similar to those used by modern spacecraft, but smaller in size.
The Wolfsegg Iron
In 1885, an iron smelter working in Wolfsegg am Hausruck, Austria found this object embedded in a block of coal dating to the Tertiary Period (65.5 to 2.6 million years ago). It was taken to the Salzburg Museum where physicist Karl Gurls examined it. His tests concluded that it was made from a steel-nickel alloy and its shape suggested that it was machine-made.
Later on, electron-beam microanalysis showed that this cuboid object was composed of a type of forged iron. This disproved the theory that it was a meteorite. Since its discovery, this artifact has puzzled people. Who had the technology to forge iron millions of years ago? The Wolfsegg Iron remains a mystery.
The Coso Artifact
On a February morning in 1961, the three co-owners of a gem shop were out looking for minerals in the Coso Mountains in Eastern California. The next day, inside one of the geodes they found something other than a gem. The stone contained the remains of a mechanical device that resembled a spark plug. They had mistakenly labeled the unusual stone as a crystal-containing geode.
The rock contained a soft unidentifiable substance in the middle of which was a porcelain cylinder circled by rings of copper. At the center of the cylinder was a shaft made of bright and magnetic metal. X-rays of the rock revealed that there was a metal spring at one end of the porcelain cylinder. The mystery was further complicated when geologists said the rock was at least 500,000 years old. Were ancient civilizations more advanced than we have been led to believe? Did they use electricity or is this object part of a hoax? In the case of the Coso Artifact we may never no, since it vanished in 1969.
