(Planet-Today) The Air Force took the first steps to guard one of its Texas bases against an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack. Officials at the Joint Base San Antonio in Lackland issued a request for bids to inspect a facility called the Petroleum, Oil and Lubrication Complex, LiveScience reported.

The inspection is intended to identify any equipment that may be vulnerable to an EMP attack. According to the request, it will be done ahead of a more advanced vulnerability survey, after which officials will upgrade the equipment.
The request came in response to a 2019 executive order that then-President Donald Trump issued for the federal government to strengthen its infrastructure against EMPs. Peter Pry, a defense analyst who consulted on the project, said that the inspection and ensuing upgrades are part of a broader initiative by the Air Force to ramp up its defenses against this type of threat.
Effects of an EMP attack
An EMP is a high-speed burst of electromagnetic energy that is created by the rapid acceleration of charged particles. Some experts claim that an EMP does not pose a threat, but others say it can cause widespread disruption to electricity-dependent societies.
“You can use a single weapon to collapse the entire North American power grid,” explained Pry, who served on the now-defunct Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from EMP Attack.
“Once the electric grid goes down, everything would collapse,” Pry said. “Everything depends on electricity: telecommunications, transportation, even water.”
Generating natural and man-made EMPs
Normally, the planet’s magnetic field deflects cosmic rays, but high-energy bursts like CMEs can cause the magnetic field to wobble and generate a powerful EMP. The last time this happened was during the Carrington Event in 1859, where intense solar storms disrupted electrical and telegraph services, on top of spawning super bright auroras that were visible all the way to the tropics.
EMPs can also be deliberately generated using nuclear weapons. If a nuclear weapon were to be detonated high in the atmosphere, according to Pry, the gamma radiation it would emit could strip negatively charged particles from air molecules and accelerate them to near the speed of light.
If these particles interacted with Earth’s magnetic field, they would generate an intense, fluctuating electric current that, in turn, would create an EMP.
Pry said that discharging a nuclear weapon around 200 miles above the U.S. could generate an EMP that would cover most of North America. While the exploded bits and radiation would likely dissipate before reaching the ground, the EMP would be powerful enough to destroy electronics across the region.
“If you were standing on the ground directly beneath the detonation, you wouldn’t even hear it go off,” Pry said. “The EMP would pass harmlessly through your body.”
Pry said militaries and terrorist groups are potentially capable of generating small EMPs with a radius of under a mile. The U.S. military, for example, has a prototype cruise missile that carries an EMP generator. Called the “Counter-Electronics High Power Microwave Advanced Missile Project” (CHAMP), the missile can be used to target enemy facilities.
The technology required to protect against EMPs is similar to what is used to prevent damage from power surges caused by lightning. This include surge protectors, which divert excess voltage into the earth, as well as Faraday cages, which shield devices from electromagnetic radiation.

Researcher discovered mysterious structures on the Moon
Renowned ufologist and virtual archaeologist Scott Waring is back in
the spotlight with his latest discovery: mysterious structures on the
surface of the Moon.
In photographs of the Moon obtained by the American space agency NASA, he discovered something that raises many questions.
discovery became the subject of discussion among lovers of the
mysteries of space. The ufologist said that the photograph was published
by NASA just a few days ago, and immediately after that he began a
detailed analysis of it.
According to Waring, the photograph shows
structures that could not have formed naturally. These unusual objects
could have been built by extraterrestrial civilizations, the researcher
the most surprising thing is that, according to Waring, NASA is not
even trying to hide this information. Skeptics argue that if evidence of
alien intervention was actually found on the Moon, the agency would try
to hide such facts.
However, Waring believes that the agency is
deliberately disclosing this information to generate public interest and
attention to aliens.
The researcher also calls on NASA to provide
more details about the origin of these mysterious structures and
conduct more research.
The 1933 UFO Crash in Italy: The First and Forgotten Roswell?
When we think of UFO crashes, the first thing that comes to mind is
the famous Roswell incident of 1947, when a mysterious object crashed on
a ranch in New Mexico, sparking decades of speculation and controversy.
what if Roswell was not the first, nor the only, UFO crash on Earth?
What if there was an earlier and more obscure case that involved a
fascist dictator, a secret department, and a possible cover-up by the US
That is the intriguing story of the 1933 UFO crash in
Italy, which has recently resurfaced thanks to new allegations and
evidence from researchers and former intelligence officials.
According to these sources, a bell-shaped flying saucer crashed near Magenta, a town west of Milan, on June 13, 1933.
craft was reportedly recovered by the Italian authorities and taken to a
nearby airfield, where it was examined by a team of experts led by none
other than Guglielmo Marconi, the inventor of radio.
known about the first “UFO” case in Italy: the fascist regime
immediately secreted the story. It was Roberto Pinotti, founder and
secretary of the National UFO Center, who tried to dissolve the mist of
mystery that surrounds the case.
At the “Ufology” conference,
which was held near Lake Maggiore, in Arona, he explained that “the
remains of the UFO, which in the drawings is described as a cylindrical
aircraft, with a bottleneck at the end, with portholes on the side, from
which white and red lights came out, were taken to the Siai-Marchetti
warehouses in Vergiate, where they remained for 12 years.
bodies of the pilots, preserved in formalin, were studied for a long
time. It is known that they were 1.80 tall, had light hair, and
oriental-looking blue eyes.
is therefore understandable why Mussolini thought they were German
pilots, despite the authoritative contrary opinion of Marconi himself.
hypothesis advanced by Pinotti could also redefine the history of the
pre-war period: “The Duce believed, perhaps, that it would be
appropriate to ally himself with a military power like that of Nazi
Germany, capable of producing an aircraft never seen before, rather than
having her as an enemy.”
The craft itself was said to be made of
an unknown metal that was resistant to heat and corrosion, and had a
complex propulsion system and electromagnetic fields.
dictator Benito Mussolini, who was fascinated by the phenomenon, ordered
the creation of a secret department called “Gabinetto RS/33” (or RS/33
Cabinet) to study the saucer and its technology. The department was
headed by Marconi and included scientists, engineers, and military
officers. Their goal was to reverse-engineer the alien craft and use it
for military purposes.
their plans were thwarted by the end of World War II, when Italy was
invaded by the Allied forces. According to some accounts, the American
troops seized the saucer and its remains and shipped them to the US,
where they became part of a covert program that collected and studied
multiple “non-human” flying saucers.
This program was allegedly
overseen by the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), a highly secretive
intelligence agency that operates spy satellites.
of this program was recently revealed by David Grusch, a former NRO
officer who claims to have firsthand knowledge of it. Grusch says that
he has seen documents and photos that prove that the US government has
obtained several alien crafts over the years, including the one from
Italy in 1933. He also says that he has spoken to other former
intelligence officers who were part of the program and confirmed his
The 1933 UFO crash in Italy may be one of the oldest and
most forgotten cases in UAP history, but it may also be one of the most
important ones. It may hold clues to the origin and purpose of these
mysterious visitors, as well as their impact on human history and
