If nature had managed to somehow design and decorate them in such a way, then it would be the first and only case of such a thing occurring. Most of us will be familiar with the Death Star from the Star Wars movies by George Lucas. There are multiple examples of elements within the popular series which actually turn out to have a history elsewhere. But Tyler stands by the Death Star theory and explains the fictional Star Wars weapon and Iapetus both have identical massive crater in the exact location on top. We should never doubt that there is way more going on (and has gone on) than we are allowed to know about. It has a diameter of 914 miles and travels 2.213 million miles around Saturn, which is considered the longest distance of Saturn’s satellites. Meet Iapetus, one of Saturn’s many moons: Iapetus is widely regarded by many of the researchers who have seriously investigated this anomalous object as an artificial construct, not least because of its ridge, or wall. Maybe not quite as far back as, say, 2.8 billion years ago – but nevertheless a possible link can be found there. Published: 23:17 GMT, 11 May 2016 | Updated: 02:49 GMT, 12 May 2016. However, while low self-esteem, narcissism and belief in conspiracies are strongly linked, it is not clear that one - or a combination - causes the other. Naim's incredible Mu-So Qb takes you back to the good old days - where the music captivates and enthralls, rather that simply being something in the background. Iapetus has been called the ‘ying-yang moon’, as it has a light and dark face that creates a contrast on the surface. (Persia had the ‘Narts’, which were the protectors of enlightened priest kings and guardians of a so-called Holy Grail called the Nartmongue). 0. And then, just above the ridge, a hole or indentation that appears in the top half. It is also a devastating weapon, capable of destroying an entire planet by firing a single destructive beam. On one hand, the XR lacks the high-resolution screen and dual-lens camera on the XS. It might not be a name familiar to the US market, but Naim is a legendary British brand hoping to make a splash with the American launch of its $1499 Mu:So speaker. Could it be that Iapetus was not only the inspiration for the Death Star but also for whoever (or whatever) fashioned these ancient spheres? These spheres have been found by South African miners during the last several decades. Israeli beauty-tech firm Pollogen has launched its Geneo Personal device, which stimulates oxygen from beneath the skin's surface to give you a clearer, fresher face within minutes. The results showed that those people who rated highly on the narcissism scale and who had low self-esteem were more likely to be conspiracy believers. But the alarming aspect to the story is that these objects date back to the Precambrian era – around 2.8 billion years ago. Change ). While others believe icy material may have seeped out of the surface that eventually hardened or Iapetus once had a ring system that formed the ridge. Women and men did not significantly differ in their belief in conspiracy theories. Sitting in the museum of Klerksdorp, South Africa, hundreds of tiny metallic balls (known as the Transvaal Spheres) are displayed. Having established a little of this rampant ‘borrowing’ Lucas has done to set up his  stall, we might well ask the question – where did the concept of the Death Star come from? A little homework will tell you that we maybe shouldn’t be too quick to give Lucas credit for all of his ‘creations’. He had discovered it on the western side of Saturn and tried viewing it on the eastern side some months later, but was unsuccessful. ‘We didn’t even have close up images of Iapetus, supposedly, when the Star Wars films came out in the 70s’. Conspiracy theorists claim it could have been a ‘deliberate modification of an existing natural object’ or an artificial structure built by an alien civilization, reports Inquisitr. He suggests the structure is two pieces that were once welded together to from a … A massive ridge that is 16,000 kilometers long, 20 kilometers wide stretches around the equator that Tyler says is the middle cut of two separate pieces. Change ), You are commenting using your Google account. Iapetus was discovered by Giovanni Domenico Cassini, an Italian-born French astronomer, in October 1671. But it hints at an interesting new angle to the world of conspiracy and those who reinforce belief. A major proponent of this theory is Richard C Hoagland (former Curator of Astronomy and space science at the Springfield Science Museum, Massachusetts and consultant to CBS News during the Apollo program). The main two features are the ridge that traces along the equator of the mass, which circumscribes the entire object. Younger participants were more likely to believe, but there was no significant correlation between belief in conspiracy theories and social status. Mainstream science dogmatically refuses to admit that the official version of human history is incorrect, even in the face of a vast wealth of startling evidence, found all over the globe, suggesting otherwise. ‘We go back to Hollywood drip feeding us bits of truth.’. All the evidence points in one direction; that there has been a forgotten, lost – or perhaps deliberately concealed episode in the story of human history. Experts aren’t exactly sure how Saturn’s moon Iapetus formed, but one Martian researcher believes it was 'made from scratch' by an alien civilization. Of course, this could all just be one big coincidence. There are also many other unnatural oddities presented by this moon, too many to go into now in fact. Giovanni Cassini discovered Iapetus on Oct. 25, 1671. The study found a stronger belief in conspiracy theories was significantly associated with more stressful life events in the last six months and greater perceived stress over the last month. The Devil In The Detail can’t pretend to have the answers. One obvious example would be the concept of the Jedi – known in ancient Egypt as the ‘Djedi’ – a priesthood of sorcerers and magicians whose task it was to protect the Pharaoh. Cassini finally observed Iapetus on the eastern side in 1705 with the help of an improved telescope, finding it two magnitudes dimmer on that side. One thing’s for certain, however. Apple's new iPhone XS and XS Max go on sale on Friday - and the biggest handset Apple has ever made is also its best (and possibly unsurprisingly, its most expensive). Other angles of Iapetus suggest it is not circular like all of the other moons, but forms a hexagon shape as ‘terminator lines form these razor-sharp right angles’ – more evidence Tyler says proves it’s an artificial object. Iapetus: The Original Death Star. Martian researchers believes Iapetus is an alien Death Star, like the one in the Star Wars films. It is important to point out that this feature displays unnatural rectilinear geometry. The researchers surveyed 420 adults aged between 20 and 78. WHAT IS THE CONSPIRACY THEORY FOR IAPETUS? This idea stems from the 16,000 kilometers long, 20 kilometers wide and 12 mile high 'mountain range' that stretches around Iapetus. Conspiracy theorists claim Iapetus could be an alien Death Star, as it is actually two separate pieces welded together to form one massive artificial structure-- just like the one in Star Wars.

Apple's new iPad is blazingly fast, gorgeous to look at, and quite simply the best tablet out there - and for a lot of people, probably the best computer out there. Iapetus is a moon of Saturn that resembles the infamous Death Star in the "Star Wars" films, with a large crater that resembles the fictional weapon's superlaser focus lens. Change ), You are commenting using your Facebook account. ‘There’ some very prominent researchers out there who have theorized that Iapetus is a constructed object, it’s artificial, explained YouTuber and alien hunter Tyler from Secure Team in a recent video. ‘It looks as if there were two separate pieces and it’s almost as if they were welded together,’ he explains, Other angles of Iapetus suggest it is not circular like all of the other moons, but forms a hexagon shape as ‘terminator lines form these razor-sharp right angles’ – more evidence Tyler says proves it’s an artificial object.
