Erich Von Daniken is the open minded visionary who spear headed the ancient astronaut hypothesis. Back in the 1970’s he was famous for his controversial book ‘Chariots of the Gods’ where he coined the idea that ancient aliens visited mankind in the distant past.
He then took the idea further by researching many ancient scriptures from various global biblical texts exploring the old concepts but from a modern, even scientific viewpoint.
A good example of this would be how he translated the scenario of ancient visitations where beings materialise on a cloud of smoke to the sound of thunder, Erich stopped and thought to himself surely that’s a rocket? But back then no-one had the words for a rocket!
Even in school Erich found himself questioning his religious education teacher and challenging the very fabric of the way society were translating the writings of the Bible and other religious texts.
He then used his challenging mindset to review loads of ancient scriptures which led to more and more anomalies; he viewed things with today’s knowledge and technology in mind with outstanding conclusions! Like the ancient light bulbs found to be depicted in and around Egypt.
Even in the ancient Indian Mahabharata scriptures there are mysteriously, amazing references to ancient flying crafts named Vimana’s, these are literally documented and even blueprinted into the scriptures. They explain how these craft fly up in the skies and use mercury engines heating mercury as a fuel source.
The mercury vortex engines
Ancient Indian culture 7000 years ago knew how to create Vimanas to traverse the sky and beyond using a technology that NASA is still trying to harness today. There are many books and websites which forcefully and passionately assert that technologically advanced aircraft and spacecraft were in common use over the Indian subcontinent thousands of years ago.
The sources also claim that advanced space propulsion technology being researched by NASA is in fact directly inspired by ancient flying machines.
The references mentioned from Vedic texts such as Rig Veda, Yajur Veda, Srimad Bhagavatham, Ramayana, Mahabharatha, Vaimanika Shastra and Samarangana Suthtradhara cites Vimanas that fly in air, water and land.
They mention various propulsion including Mercury propulsion. Vaimanika Shastra provides complete manual for Design, Material selection, Manufacture, Operation, Space suits, Food, Tackling enemies, Becoming invisible etc. S.B.Talpade, Sanskrit scholar has designed and constructed an aircraft based on Vedic principles and demonstrated the first unmanned flight.
Interestingly and also worryingly, the concept of mercury propulsion is being worked on today only NASA call it Ion propulsion and mercury is a main factor in the design!!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An ion thruster is a form of electric propulsion used for spacecraft propulsion. It creates thrust by accelerating ions with electricity. The term refers strictly to gridded electrostatic ion thrusters, but may more loosely be applied to all electric propulsion systems that accelerate plasma, since plasma consists of ions.
Ion thrusters are categorized by how they accelerate the ions, using either electrostatic or electromagnetic force. Electrostatic thrusters use the Coulomb force and accelerate the ions in the direction of the electric field. Electromagnetic thrusters use the Lorentz force. In either case, when an ion passes through an electrostatic grid engine, the potential difference of the electric field converts to the ion’s kinetic energy.
The Deep Space 1 spacecraft, powered by an ion thruster, changed velocity by 4.3 km/s while consuming less than 74 kilograms of xenon. The Dawn spacecraft broke the record, with a velocity of 10 km/s.
Applications include control of the orientation and position of orbiting satellites (some satellites have dozens of low-power ion thrusters) and use as a main propulsion engine for low-mass robotic space vehicles (such as Deep Space 1 and Dawn).
A working ion thruster was built by Harold R. Kaufman in 1959 at the NASA Glenn Research Centre facilities. It was similar to a gridded electrostatic ion thruster and used mercury for propellant. Suborbital tests were conducted during the 1960s and in 1964, the engine was sent into a suborbital flight aboard the Space Electric Rocket Test 1 (SERT 1). It successfully operated for the planned 31 minutes before falling to Earth. This test was followed by an orbital test, SERT-2, in 1970.
Perhaps there is and was a lot of hidden knowledge in our ancient past and we are only just discovering their technologies today, even though many clues were left behind in ancient scriptures?
