US SUBMARINE “BUZZED” BY U.S.O.?
This story was spotted and sent in, almost simultaneously, by V.T., S.D., and C.V., so when you see three emails arrive in your inbox from three widely dispersed people sending the exact same story, you tend to sit up and take notice. (And thank you to you three who did so!)
This is “old news”, and in fact, once you read the story, you’ll discover it’s from the 1990s. But it’s a “whopper doozie” that cries out for the high octane speculation treatment. Here’s the story:
The article itself can be quoted in full since it is so short:
A scientist carrying out classified work onboard the USS Hampton nuclear submarine in the late 1990s says the sub was ‘buzzed’ by an unidentified object traveling underwater faster than the speed of sound.
In a YouTube interview with UFO researcher Chris Leto, scientist Bob McGwier said that the sub was “running deep and fast” when it was passed at extremely high speed by an object. According to McGwier, the encounter was confirmed by a member of the crew who was shocked at the speed of the Unidentified Submerged Object (USO), Daily Star reports.
“A person with knowledge of onboard systems came out and said ‘this goddam thing is going faster than the speed of sound underwater – but that’s faster than the speed of sound in air’,” he continued.
According to McGwier, the crew “didn’t want to report it, didn’t want to tell anybody, didn’t want to cause any problems.”
Sound moves at 1,480 meters per second in water (3,355 miles per hour) vs. 331 meters per second in air.
Perhaps it was a ‘Tic Tac’ UFO, which have been seen emerging from the ocean at high rates of speed?
And there you have it; that’s the entire article and story: a US Navy submarine tracked an Unidentified Submerged Object (USO) exceeding 3,355 miles per hour, underwater. The article ends by connecting the story – tenuously – to the “Tic Tac” UFOs much-bally-hooed in the lamestream propatainment media networks and press recently, along with their designated government sponsored “interpretaters” and “whistleblowers.” With that tenuous connection, I assume we’re supposed to leap immediately to the conclusion that whoever was zipping along underwater at super-sonic submerged speeds, it wasn’t us, i.e., human. ET? Maybe. An undiscovered underwater intelligent species? Maybe. But human? Definitely not.
Well, readers of this website know my views: I’m not philosophically opposed to ETs or underwater intelligent species (think octopus here) zipping along at incredible speeds. But I’m also skeptical that these are the only two, or even best, explanations. Nor am I convinced that such things are beyond present human capability. Certainly they’re beyond presently acknowledged human capability, but the two are not necessarily the same thing. If one assumes, for the moment, that someone possesses an inertial or warp or antigravity propulsion system – whatever one wishes to call it – then the medium through which an object moves, be it air, water, or vacuum space, is of little importance.
But I rather strongly suspect that one need not to resort to such end-of-the-twig speculations of such an exotic nature. Instead, I suspect that there might be another way to simulate the super-sonic movement of a “something” underwater, and that might be by a kind of sonar interferometry creating a “ghost” on the oscilloscope, so to speak, of an “object” that really isn’t there. Very sensitive underwater listening stations have been used to triangulate submarine positions for decades. The loss of the nuclear submarines USS Scorpion and USS Thresher with all hands were two events that the US Navy actually listened to via such stations placed hundreds of miles away from the incidents. Due to these listening posts, they were able to triangulate the location of these submarines rather accurately, and thus to send deep sea probes down to look at them to determine the possible causes of their loss. So imagine that one uses such stations for the sonic broadcast of signals beyond the range of human hearing from two or more such locations, and interfering the signals in a particular region in such a way as to establish a beat frequency that is detectable by and audible to human hearing and by the sonar equipment on a modern submarine, and moving that area of interference so as to appear to be an object travelling at great underwater speed.
It might thus be possible to deceive the crews of a submarine, and a scientist, and through them, the readers of a newspaper, that there is someone “out there” or “down there”, and they have capabilities far in excess of our own.
Just a thought I thought I’d toss out there…
