Crashed UFO Found in Antarctica, Russian Scientist Claims in Youtube Video

Alien Artifacts Revealed in Google Earth Images

What some say is an outcropping is in fact the portal to a crashed unidentified Flying Object, says a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences. In a Youtube video with over a million views, he says that if it looks like a UFO and flies like a UFO, it's a UFO.

The item is located 1000 miles inland of the United States' large research facility at Ross Island, in a part of the Southern Ice sheet that has retreated in recent decades. Photos of it are available on the internet, courtesy of Google Earth.

Antarctica is big and empty and is regarded as perhaps the best place on earth to hunt meteors. They are quite visible against the white snow. Pieces of Mars have been found there, including one that appears to contain evidence of Martian microbes.

Antarctica is frequently the subject of UFO or science fiction stories. Alien v. Predator, for example, takes place on Bellinghausen Island, which in reality is the site of Russian, Polish and other Antarctic research stations. The X-Files Movie postulates a large Cabal project on Alien Human hybridization takes place near the South Pole. In the Stargate series, an interplanetary Stargate is located in Antarctica, as is an Earth defense facility built by an advanced ancient race of humans.

Allan Hills 84001 (commonly abbreviated ALH84001) is a meteorite that was found in Allan Hills, Antarctica on December 27, 1984, by a team of U.S. meteorite hunters from the ANSMET project. Like other members of the group of SNCs (shergottite, nakhlite, chassignite), ALH84001 is thought to be from Mars. However, it does not fit into any of the previously discovered SNC groups. On discovery, its mass was 1.93 kilograms (4.3 lb).

The meteorite is best known for gaining intense media attention in 1996 when a group of scientists claimed to have found evidence for microscopic fossils of Martian bacteria in it, culminating in then U.S. President Bill Clinton giving a speech about the potential discovery.

These claims were controversial from the beginning, and the wider scientific community ultimately rejected the hypothesis once all the unusual features in the meteorite had been explained without requiring life to be present. Despite there being no convincing evidence of Martian life, the initial paper and scientific and public attention caused by it are considered to be turning points in the history of the developing science of astrobiology.
