The Solaris Effect in space
Cosmonauts and astronauts don’t like to talk about it. However, the unusual things that happened to them during long-term stays in orbit still occasionally break through into the public sphere. I would like to tell the distinguished members of the forum about some of them that happened to the Russian cosmonauts.
“Solaris” is the famous novel by science fiction writer Stanislav Lem, describing inexplicable things that happened to astronauts during their long stay in space on other planets. The novel was very popular, and many films were shot on it, both in the West and in Russia. But it turned out that most of the effects described by Lem actually met with Russian cosmonauts in orbit.
In 1984, a crew of 6 was on board the Salyut-7 space station. These were three cosmonauts of the main expedition: Leonid Kizim, Oleg Atkov, Vladimir Soloviev. It was the 155th day of the main train flight. The team went about their ordinary business, preparing for laboratory experiments.
3-meter “angels” orbiting the Earth
At one point, the station was covered with an unusual orange cluster, and from the inside, everything was practically illuminated by a bright orange glow. Those present for a short time completely lost their sight from the bright light. When their vision returned to them, they saw on the other side of the window 7 unknown creatures about 30 meters in height, which, smiling, flew in space near the station. They looked like people, but they were huge in stature, on their backs there were huge wings and a shining halo around their heads. The creatures looked like angels are usually described.
In the presence of these creatures, the astronauts felt relaxed and serene. According to the team members, the humanoids flew at the same speed as the station for 10 minutes.
After 14 days, three more astronauts joined the station team: Svetlana Savitskaya, Vladimir Dzhanibekov and Igor Volk. After arriving on the Salyut-7 ship, they joined the station’s crew. Then everything around was lit up again with a blinding light. The whole team decided to look out the windows. Large beings were heading into space again, smiling and giving a sense of peace and tranquility.
After a short meeting, the team transmitted the incident report to planet Earth. It can be assumed that at this time was happening in the Control Center … All six astronauts were immediately subjected to various mental and medical tests, which showed that there were no defects. The report was strictly classified. The astronauts were strictly ordered to remain silent about what happened. And they were silent. Only each other was aware of the mysterious “guests” who sometimes appeared during flights in space.
Test astronaut Sergei Krichevsky was the first to speak openly about these unusual paradoxes in orbit in 1995 at a lecture at the Novosibirsk Interstate Institute of Space Anthropoecology. “Astronauts transmit information about such visions only to each other, sharing information with those who will soon make a flight,” he said in his own startling report.
“There, in orbit, sometimes you cannot learn where the dream is, where the reality is …”- also confessed the pilot-astronaut Alexander Serebrov.
“What’s going on? A person suddenly undergoes one or several transformations, unexpectedly turning into some kind of supernatural beast, practically feeling himself in his skin. Reincarnations can continue as long as you like. Feeling each nerve its large blue claws, scales, seeing even the membranes between the fingers, the former astronaut “wanders” around the unknown planet, “talks” with its other inhabitants.
Later, he becomes something else – imagine, migrates into the body of a creature from another era, or another galaxy, at once assimilating a new language, habits and customs. A world completely unknown to him, he takes it as something completely ordinary. No space technology with this speed and ease is capable of transporting a person in space and time. All astronauts who have been in a similar state at once determine some powerful flow of information going outside, “- test cosmonaut Sergei Krichevsky.
These unusual phenomena have become a mystery to psychologists who are related to space. Some started talking about the fact that the matter is in a change in the state of consciousness under the influence of cosmic radiation and a constantly changing magnetic field. ” The rest are about the fact that we, earthlings, do not know much about the cosmos, which is reasonable for itself and thus comes into contact. There was even a term: “The Solaris Effect”. Still others put forward a version of an extraterrestrial civilization that managed to master space.
“Our homeland is somewhere not on Earth”
“I think that, of course, we are not alone in the Universe, someone surrounds us. This is unambiguous. We just have not lived to the point when it makes sense to somehow interact with us, our mind is not ready for this I am completely sure that the vastness of space is not at all deathly. And our Earth is really small. I had the thought from time to time that we were settled on planet Earth, that our homeland is somewhere not on our planet. There is such a theory of “Sowing “: It seems like we were brought and sown in some way. After all, at the moment, more than a thousand planets similar to the Earth have been discovered. Naturally, there is intelligent life, I am completely sure that in some places it is”, – astronaut Vladimir Soloviev.
“The moon landing was filmed in a pavilion on Earth.”
“Regarding the flight of the Americans to the moon, the only thing I can tell you is what I heard from Neil Armstrong. Neil Armstrong told me the following:“ We brought not extremely well-conditioned photos and film material, since there was no time for filming. Well, the television was weak then. And then the media took and “filmed” something on our planet in a specialized hangar. As they “filmed”, they immediately grabbed by the hand that it was made on our planet. “This is the story”, – astronaut Vladimir Soloviev.

The Dark and Mysterious History of Yosemite’s Tenaya Canyon
Tenaya Canyon is a trail-less and treacherous part of Yosemite
National Park that runs from Tenaya Lake down to Yosemite Valley. It is
known as the “Bermuda Triangle of Yosemite” because of the many
accidents, injuries and deaths that have occurred there over the years.
people even believe that the canyon is cursed by the spirits of the
original inhabitants of Yosemite, who were violently displaced by the
Mariposa Indian War in the 1850s.
The canyon is a challenging and
risky route for adventurous hikers and climbers, who have to navigate
smooth granite slabs, steep rappels, mandatory swims and precarious
ledges. The canyon also offers stunning views of waterfalls, swimming
holes and rock formations.
However, the park officials warn that
“a trip into the unforgiving terrain of Tenaya Canyon…should not be
taken lightly.” There is a sign at the entrance of the canyon that
reads: “TRAVEL BEYOND THIS POINT IS DANGEROUS.”
of the most famous incidents in Tenaya Canyon happened in 1918, when
John Muir, the “Father of the National Parks,” fell and was knocked
unconscious while exploring the canyon.
He later wrote: “I was
suddenly brought to a standstill by a blow on the head that confused my
senses for a moment or two without wholly stunning me.” He managed to
recover and continue his journey, but he never returned to the canyon.
Yosemite National Park, Mariposa County, CA
“Tenaya Canyon is one of those places where you can feel history all
around you,” said Scott Gediman, a park ranger at Yosemite National
Park. “It’s a very powerful place.”
Another notable explorer of
Tenaya Canyon was Ron Kauk, a legendary climber who lived in Yosemite
for decades and scaled some of its most challenging walls.
He camped on the side of a rock face in Tenaya Canyon and felt a mysterious force pulling on his sleeping bag.
He told SFGATE:
“It was like something that came around in a teasing kind of way or
something. It wasn’t anything too dramatic, no lights flashing around or
flying by you. Just to acknowledge that there was something else
He speculated that the canyon might be “the holding place for the original spirit of the place and the people (of Yosemite).”
Canyon is named after Chief Tenaya, the leader of the Ahwahneechee
tribe that lived in Yosemite Valley before they were driven out by the
Mariposa Battalion, a group of armed volunteers sent by California’s
governor to subdue the Native Americans in the area.
battalion captured Chief Tenaya and his people and forced them to
relocate to a reservation near Fresno. However, some of them escaped and
returned to Yosemite Valley, where they were attacked again by the
Chief Tenaya’s son was killed in the battle, and he
reportedly cursed his enemies and his homeland before fleeing into
Tenaya Canyon. He was later killed by a rival tribe near Mono Lake.
historians and locals believe that Chief Tenaya’s curse still lingers
in Tenaya Canyon, causing misfortune and tragedy for those who enter it.
Others think that the canyon is simply a dangerous place that requires
caution and respect.
Tenaya Canyon has had more than 110 people
killed there and many more injured. It is known to the Park Service as
the Bermuda Triangle of Yosemite.
of people go missing at national parks across the United States every
year. Some of these disappearances are never solved. Yosemite National
Park holds the notorious position as the national park with the third
most missing persons per year (233).
Either way, Tenaya Canyon
remains one of Yosemite’s most fascinating and mysterious places, where
nature’s beauty and history’s brutality collide.
Vatican investigates potential miracle at Connecticut church
The Catholic Church is reportedly investigating a potential miracle that occurred at a church in Connecticut, reports independent.co.uk.
The supposed miracle took place at St Thomas Church in Thomaston, Connecticut, according to the Hartford Courant.
Revered Joseph Crowley, who heads St Maximilian Kolbe Parish, which
includes St Thomas Church, reported that the wafers distributed during
the observation of communion multiplied while sitting inside the
“God duplicated himself in the ciborium,” Rev Crowley
said after communion, referencing the metal storage containers used to
house the communion wafers. “God provides and it’s strange how God does
that. And that happened.”
response, the Archdiocese of Hartford began an investigation to
determine whether or not a miracle had occurred at the church.
then, the Vatican’s Dicastery for the Doctrine of Faith, a group dating
back to the 1500’s tasked with promoting and defending the Catholic
faith throughout the world, has been notified and has begun its own
A spokesman for the archdiocese, David Elliott,
issued a statement to the Hartford Courant saying that “reports such as
the alleged miracle in Thomaston require referral to the Dicastery for
the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome. The Archdiocese has proceeded
accordingly, and will await a response in due time.”
an important part of the process of becoming a saint within the Catholic
Church. Sainthood considerations typically begin five years after the
death of an exceptional Catholic.
number of criteria must be met, including “verified miracles” — Vatican
officials must determine that the miracles are a direct result of an
individual praying to the candidate saint. They must come to the
decision that the miracle was a result of the dead potential saint
interceding between the petitioner and God, causing the miracle.
Catholic Church defines a miracle as a “sign of wonder such as a
healing, or control of nature, which can only be attributed to divine

use of divine power to those unfamiliar with Catholic theology, the

the holiest and most important sacrament — or ritual — in the faith.
typically believe in the idea of transubstantiation, or the idea that
the bread and wine given during the ritual literally become the body and
blood of Jesus Christ upon consecration, as opposed to simply symbols
of his presence.
O’Neil, who goes by the moniker Miracle Hunter, authored a book called
Science and the Miraculous: How the Church Investigates the
Supernatural, spoke to the Hartford Courant and gave examples of
previous eucharistic miracles.
“There are various types of
eucharistic miracles, but the ones that are most remarkable, in my
opinion, were on some rare occasions, the host is said to bleed human
blood,” he said.
Reverend Michael McGivney, the founder of the
Knights of Columbus, ended his clerical career at St Thomas, where the
alleged communion miracle took place. He has been in consideration for
sainthood and requires one more verified miracle before he moves on to
final consideration for sainthood within the Catholic Church.
Leonard Blair explained to the Hartford Courant that “what has been
reported to have occurred at our parish church in Thomaston, of which
Blessed Michael McGivney was once pastor, if verified, would constitute a
sign or wonder that can only be attributed to divine power to
strengthen our faith in the daily miracle of the Most Holy Eucharist.
would also be a source of blessing from Heaven for the effort that the
US Bishops are making to renew and deepen the faith and practice of our
Catholic people with regard to this great Sacrament.”
“Blessed” is a title given to saint candidates who have had “verified” miracles attributed to them by the Vatican.
