8 Scientific Anomalies That Can Be Credibly Explained by Alien Involvement

72.2k views8 items

Do you ever look up into the night sky and wonder if humans are alone in the universe? Or do you look around at all of the mysteries that exist right in front of you and wonder how they came to be? If you’re searching for answers, you’ve come to the right place. History is full of scientific mysteries explained by aliens. After all, who else other than extraterrestrials could build the pyramids, hollow out the moon, and maybe squeeze our entire existence into one massive supercomputer? No one knows why the extraterrestrials behind scientific anomalies are building beautiful architecture and depositing elongated skulls below the Peruvian desert, but there are more than a few theories about their intentions.

No one knows if the aliens causing science mysteries are doing it to send us a message or if they’re just being jerks, but it’s hard to imagine anyone (especially an entire race of beings) going through so much trouble to tell the world they exist out of malicious intent. It’s likely that all of the scientific mysteries that extraterrestrials have had a hand in serve as small puzzle pieces in a greater problem that can only be solved when the human race is ready to interact with more advanced beings. Whether you’re a skeptic or you’re ready to climb down the rabbit hole, there are many interesting questions raised - and maybe even a few answers - in this collection of scientific anomalies that were probably made by aliens. 

  • KIC 8462852: Alien Megastructure or God's Christmas Light?

    In 2010, researchers at Yale University discovered KIC 8462852, a star that was acting out of accordance with stars normally act. For instance, instead of shining with the same brightness, it would flicker drastically every few years, which isn't a thing that stars do. After ruling out telescope and operator error, multiple scientists concluded that something big had to be blocking the star. 

    Astronomer Jason Wright, a Penn State University researcher, doesn't want to say that it's an alien megastructure doing the blocking, but he's not sure what else to call it: “When [a colleague] showed me the data, I was fascinated by how crazy it looked. Aliens should always be the very last hypothesis you consider, but this looked like something you would expect an alien civilization to build.”

  • The Pyramids

    Did you think you were going to get through a list of scientific mysteries that might be perpetrated by aliens without reading about one pyramid? Nice try. When it comes to these beautiful architectural masterpieces that exist throughout Africa, South America, and Europe, there are multiple explanations for how they came to exist. Obviously slave labor and technology that makes use of physics are a couple of answers that make sense, but that also ignores a few key theories that open a universe of possibilities. 

    Some armchair theorists believe that Egyptians couldn't have built the pyramids due to their lack of mathematical knowledge and that alien interference is the only thing that makes sense. This theory feels kind of racist, but that's what you get for peeling back the layers of conspiracy that surround ancient aliens. Other theorists believe that the pyramids were placed here as a way to harness energy from the earth using geographic geometry. It's possible that the earth is a giant battery that's being used to power a larger alien presence, or maybe the pyramids were placed here to help us tap into an energy source that's all around us. 

  • What's Up With the Moon?

    Sure, we've been to the moon. But have we really been to the moon? There have been multiple theories positing what extraterrestrials have to do with the big white orb that follows our every move, but so far the only answer science has given us is it might be a big rock that fell into our orbit. Snooze. One relatively new theory about the moon is that it was actually built by a race of ancient aliens to act as a secret base, or as a giant ship with unknowable capabilities. 

    This hypothesis was first introduced in 1970 by two Russian scientists named Michael Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov who posited that the moon was a natural space body converted into an artificial structure by alien engineers who melted the original solid core, deposited the molten lava on the lunar surface, and created an inner lunar space protected by an artificial shell that we know as the moon's surface. One of the major reasons for scientists believing that the moon is hollow is because of its calculated mean density of 3.3gm/cm3, compared with Earth’s 5.5 gm/cm3. It sounds crazy, but even NASA researchers have admitted that "[T]he data requires that the interior of the Moon is more like a hollow than a homogeneous sphere.”

  • Strange Noise

    Beginning in at least 2008, people across the world began to hear a strange sound seemingly emitting from nowhere. It had the grate of metal sliding against metal, and the atonal shriek of a sixth-grade orchestra tuning their instruments, but what was it? One man, Aaron Taylor, who recorded a snippet of the sound in 2012, believes that there's something supernatural or extraterrestrial about the sound, and says that he hasn't been able to sleep since hearing the noises: "I've had vivid nightmares ever since I posted the very eerie strange sounds that has Missoula talking and looking towards the sky; awful, awful nightmares."

    One theory is that the sound is simply a natural noise that the earth makes, and NASA researchers are claiming that we would hear these sounds constantly if humans were able to tune into the Earth's natural radio emissions. Even with this explanation, there are still people who believe that we're receiving a message from extraterrestrials who are trying to wake humans up to the coming geomagnetic polar shift
