When NASA made their announcement that they detected Phosphine in the gasses above Venus and that it may be an indication of life, I was thinking about a lot of things in the back of my mind that I wanted to share that I once set aside as being too outrageous to even think about.

When I was younger, there were many science fiction films from the 1950’s that sparked my imagination. One of my favorite films was, 20 Million Miles to Earth. It still holds its charm after all these years but back then it always confused me how a creature that came to earth from Venus would be able to survive the trip to earth but to also live on a hostile planet whose atmosphere is acidic.


Well, in a mock science explanation the lifeform that was there on Venus was called an YMIR. The YMIR gets its name from a Norse God that translated means screamer.

The YMIR was a small reptilian creature, it was actually an extremophile that that had a network of spongey membranes inside their bodies to filter out Venus’s toxic gas atmosphere.

Because of Venus’s lack of oxygen and atmospheric pressure they were much smaller there than on Earth. They were brought by astronauts on a rocket that crashed, plunging into the cold water off the coast of Sicily.

The ship and its contents were thought to be lost forever. A young boy finds an egg and this cute reptilian alien comes out. The alien was caged but for some reason it grew 20 feet and broke out of its structure. There is a classic scene where the YMIR attacks and elephant and is seen standing on the Roman Coliseum. The creature was created by Ray Harryhausen and it is stop motion marvel to watch.

If you get the opportunity you should watch it again just for the fun of it but still, I often wondered how back in 1957, before the Moon shot or even the Russian Vanera probes someone thought that there could be any life from Venus.

The answer may be very surprising and again there is a connection to President Trump.

After Nikola Tesla was found dead in January 1943 in his hotel room in New York City, representatives of the U.S. government’s Office of Alien Property seized many documents relating to his work. It was the height of World War II, and Tesla had claimed to have invented a powerful particle-beam weapon, known as the “Death Ray,” that could have proved invaluable in the ongoing conflict.

So rather than risk Tesla’s technology falling into the hands of America’s enemies, the government swooped in and took possession of all the property and documents from his room at the New Yorker Hotel.

What happened to Tesla’s files from there, as well as what exactly was in those files, remains shrouded in mystery—and ripe for conspiracy theories. After years of fielding questions about possible cover-ups, the FBI finally declassified some 250 pages of Tesla-related documents under the Freedom of Information Act in 2016. The bureau followed up with two additional releases, the latest in March 2018. But even with the publication of these documents, many questions still remain unanswered—and some of Tesla’s files are still missing.

Three weeks after Tesla died , an electrical engineer from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology was tasked with evaluating his papers to determine whether they contained “any ideas of significant value.” Many people may or may not be aware that the man that evaluated the declassified files, Dr. John G. Trump.

John Trump was head of research at MIT in the high voltage research lab of MIT, 1949.

The scientist’s name undoubtedly rings a bell, as John G. Trump was the uncle of president, Donald J. Trump. The younger brother of Trump’s father, Fred, he helped design X-ray machines that greatly helped cancer patients and worked on radar research for the Allies during World War II.

At the time, the FBI pointed to Dr. Trump’s report as evidence that Tesla’s vaunted “Death Ray” particle beam weapon didn’t exist, outside of rumors and speculation. But in fact, the U.S. government itself was split in its response to Tesla’s technology.

The declassified files also revealed something else about Tesla.

Believe it or not the FBI’s declassified documents revealed that Nikola Tesla, one of the most brilliant and prolific inventors known, came from Venus.

Basically, the documents claimed he was not a resident of this planet.

Tesla’s scientific creations were considered 300 to 1,000 years ahead of his time; all his creations in his later years were subsequently classified as top-secret by the FBI.

Titled “Nikola Tesla Part 3 of 3”, the third of 3 declassified FBI reports about Tesla contains 64 pages with certain portions blotted out in black ink.

But one paragraph states the following:

“The ‘Space People’ visited the Tesla engineers many times, and informed us that Tesla was from Venus, brought to this planet as a baby, and was left with Mr. and Mrs. Tesla in a remote mountain province in 1856 in what is now Yugoslavia.”

The questions remain: why did Tesla come to the earth from Venus? Why did beings from Venus contact Tesla so many times? And why did aliens reveal Tesla’s true identity to the FBI?

It is a bizarre statement from the FBI and not only that there were also reports that he used low radio frequencies to contact these Venusians and also had an invention that allegedly could be used to travel through time.

On May 17, 1899, Tesla moved to Colorado Springs where he would investigate atmospheric electricity, observed lightning signals via his receivers. Tesla stated that he observed stationary waves during this time.

The great distances and the nature of what Tesla was detecting from lightning storms confirmed his belief that the earth had a resonant frequency. He produced artificial lightning with discharges consisting of millions of volts and up to 135 feet long. Thunder from the released energy was heard 15 miles away in Cripple Creek, Colorado.

But most importantly while in Colorado Springs, Tesla intercepted strange radio signals that spread through the media incredibly fast. Tesla observed unusual signals from his receiver; Tesla concluded that these signals might actually be signals that have originated somewhere in space.

Since 1896, Tesla believed that his famous wireless transmitter could be used to contact intelligent beings on other planets.

He mentioned these signals in a letter to reporter Julian Hawthorne at the Philadelphia North American on December 8, 1899 and in a December 1900 letter about possible discoveries in the new century to the Red Cross Society, where he referred to messages, “from another world.” Apparently they were from Venus.

More questions emerge: Are Tesla’s inventions simply Venusian technology in the human world? If so, why did aliens teach mankind their technology and what is their ultimate purpose in coming to Earth? Are there other extraterrestrials on Earth? And how much of our modern technology came from them?

In addition to inventions, Tesla made multiple predictions with many coming true.

In 1926, Tesla predicted smartphone, a powerful device that easily fits into a pocket. He believed that if human beings could perfect the use of radio technology, the entire earth would be connected. No matter how far apart people are, they can instantly contact, see and hear one another.

While the first smartphone came out in 1993, Tesla knew its existence 74 years in advance.

Apart from this discovery about Tesla’s beginnings there are other curious documents that the government had developed that also indicated that Venus was a possible planet with life.

In the 1960’s, NASA commissioned the Brookings Research Institute in Washington to prepare a report on the likelihood of encountering extraterrestrial life and to detail how NASA UFO sightings should be handled. The Final 219-Page Report, published in 1960, was titled “Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs.” One section was dedicated to the “Implications of a Discovery of Extraterrestrial Life.” The study is now referred to simply as “The Brookings Report.”

The authors recognized the unlikelihood of “face-to-face” meetings within the next twenty years, they nevertheless looked ahead to the chance that “artifacts left at some point in time by these life forms might possibly be discovered through our space activities on the Moon, Mars, or Venus.”

A discovery of extraterrestrial life, most likely through radio contact the authors believed, “would certainly be front-page news everywhere” and “might lead to a greater unity of men on earth, based on the ‘oneness’ of man …” or, due to the tremendous time lag in communications, “the fact that such beings existed might become simply one of the facts of life but probably not one calling for action.” The report recommended continuing studies “to determine emotional and intellectual understanding and attitudes” regarding the possibility of intelligent extraterrestrial life” and studies to understand “the behavior of peoples and their leaders when confronted with dramatic and unfamiliar events or social pressures.” The latter aimed to determine how such information might be shared, or withheld, from the public.

The report predicted that if extraterrestrial life were discovered, it could bring about “profound changes, or even the collapse of our civilization.” The report noted that such a discovery could come about at any time and that any admission of UFO activity could incite fear in the public. It suggested that evidence of alien existence might be found in artifacts left on the moon or other planets.

So Venus , Mars and the Moon were cited as possible areas for evidence for life or even artifacts left behind by extraterrestrials in space.

The Brookings Report was very clear when it suggested that “Anthropological files contain many examples of societies sure of their place in the universe which have disintegrated when they had to associate with previously unfamiliar societies espousing different societies in different ways.”

Needless to say, the guardians of intelligence suggested that if the U.S. space program found evidence of alien life or technology that it would be advisable to withhold that information.

However in 1968, NASA released a document that is accessible to the public called the TR R-277. At that time this document was the single most complete listing of all observed lunar anomalies that were recorded by observers from the year 1500 until 1967.

The report refers to over 450 years worth of notes recording observations of unique or unusual phenomena seen on the lunar surface and in the surrounding area between the Earth and Moon. They include reports of seeing areas on the moon’s surface with strange colors, streaks of light, the appearance of mists, or even possible volcanic activity. It also indicates that there is evidence of ancient structures that were detected up by Lunar Orbiter II in 1966.

The document reports that there is an obelisk-shaped object on the moon that is a staggering 1.5 miles high. There is also a 5 mile high tower located in the Sinus Medii region of the Moon.

There are also blinking lights seen in craters and very bright flashed coming off the Moon.

Oddly enough, Yale University astronomers Samuel Cabot and Gregory Laughlin said we should look to the moon for a peek into Venus’ past. They explained why in a paper accepted into the Planetary Science Journal this month.

The study suggests “asteroids and comets slamming into Venus may have dislodged as many as 10 billion rocks and sent them into an orbit that intersected with Earth and Earth’s moon,” Yale said in a statement. These impacts were more common billions of years ago, meaning bits of ancient Venus could remain as well-preserved meteorites on the lunar surface.

This means that perhaps if there was any life there at all at one time and if there is life there now – microorganisms from Venus may have seeded life on earth.

Chandra Wickramasinghe, a Sri Lankan-born British mathematician, astronomer and astrobiologist has been at the forefront of speaking and developing models for what is called panspermia.

Wickramasingue has been very controversial in the field of panspermia as he has also spoken many times about how not only life can be seeded with microbial life from other worlds but he also submitted a paper to the Lancet that perhaps our so called alien invasion could be a lethal microorganism from space.

He says we should not rule out the possibility that the new 2019 Novel Coronavirus could have had its origins in space.

While other scientists are saying this is highly unlikely, last year was certainly a banner year for fireballs from space exploding over areas and spreading fragmented debris everywhere.

Many observers have pointed out that on October 14th, 2019 there was a massive fireball explosion over Northern China.  The meteor occurred at about 12:16 a.m. Beijing Time, turning night into day.

Many believed that the fireball was going to hit the ground and end the world.

If a fragment of a loosely held carbonaceous meteorite carrying a cargo of viruses/bacteria entered the mesosphere and stratosphere at high speed, its inner core which survived incandescence would have got dispersed in the stratosphere and troposphere. This would be a deadly form of panspermia.

This type of seeding of a plague from space is not out of the question. Throughout history sightings of comets or even bolide meteors have been known to be precursors of plagues.

When Apollo 12 retrieved parts of the Surveyor 3, which landed on the moon in April of 1967, bacteria was found in the probe. It had survived the launch and managed to stay alive on the airless surface of the moon. The bacteria were Streptococcus mitis. It is a bacterium that is normally found in the nose and throat.

The idea of diseases from space and comets has always been discussed but never really proven. However, the astronauts in the 1960s and 1970s were always forced into isolation in case they brought with them interstellar bugs from space. The space-age is 40 years old it has literally been closed down and yet there has always been an interest in harnessing the building blocks of life from Comets and Asteroids and with many failed experiments from NASA, we may not ever know if some of these space diseases have arrived.

Imagine that the idea of first contact would not be with intelligent extraterrestrials but with very clever extraterrestrial diseases brought to us special delivery from comets and asteroids.

Again, this sounds like the plot to that science fiction movie I talked about earlier. Alien beings like the YMIR come in small packages but when they come to earth they become monsters and a threat to humanity.
