Eric Shipton Discovers Possible yeti Footprints on Mount Everest

In the fall of 1951, English mountain climbers Eric Shipton and Dr. Michael Ward were exploring routes to climb Mount Everest from Nepal. While on this mission Shipton discovered some huge footprints in the snow, possibly belonging to the fabled Yeti.

In 1951, when Mount Everest wasn’t a busy tourist spot, two English mountain climbers, Eric Shipton and Dr. Michael Ward, joined a trip to figure out how to reach Everest’s summit from Nepal. Shipton led the expedition, and their discoveries helped plan the successful climb by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in 1953. This expedition not only mapped the way up the tallest mountain but also marked a return to climbing after a pause during World War II.

The Yeti Footprints

At an altitude of around 15-16,000 feet, Shipton and Ward came across an unusual sight – a set of strange footprints in the snow in the Menlung Basin. Because they didn’t have proper tools to measure the footprints, they improvised using an ice pick, a backpack, and Michael Ward’s left boot. Shipton took photos as they closely examined what they found.

In one photo, comparing the boot to a footprint(below), it was evident that the print was much wider than a normal human foot, almost twice as wide, as Ward estimated. The footprint’s toes looked strange, with the big toe being lower and larger than expected for a human. It raised questions about how someone could walk in the snow without foot protection in freezing temperatures, even if it was a human print.

Perplexed, Shipton and Ward tracked the mysterious footprints down the glacier for about a mile until they set up camp for the night. A few days later, their teammates W. H. Murray and Tom Bourdillon joined them and examined the peculiar footprints. Bourdillon noted in his diary that the prints had become somewhat distorted by the sun by the time he reached them, but he still found them surprising and unexplained.

After the photos were published, several expeditions took place in the Himalayas and Central Asia to determine if the creature in Shipton’s photographs actually existed. However, no evidence was found to prove the existence of the Yeti. Some accused Shipton of staging a hoax, but others who had seen the footprints vouched for the authenticity of Shipton’s photographs.

Possible Explanations for the Footprints

Deformed Humans

While the footprints could be evidence of Yeti living in the Himalayas there are a number of other theories about where these footprints could have come from.

Dr. Michael Ward, a medical doctor who was a part of Shipton’s expedition had an interesting theory about the footprints. He believed that the footprints could have been made by a local Tibetan with differently-shaped feet. In communities without easy access to medical help, foot abnormalities from birth might remain.

Dr Ward had seen Tibetans with deformed feet and some who walked with bare feet in the snow.

One case occurred during the Silver Hut Expedition in 1960-1961, which stayed at 19,000ft in the Everest region during the winter. A 35-year-old Nepalese pilgrim named Man Bahadur, who usually lived at 6000ft, visited. He spent 14 days at 15,300ft and above, not wearing shoes or gloves throughout. He walked in the snow and on rocks with bare feet without getting frostbite. He had minimal clothing and no sleeping bag or protective gear except a woolen coat.

He was monitored for four days without shelter between 16,500ft and 17,500ft, with temperatures as low as -13°C to -15°C at night and below freezing during the day. Eventually, he developed cracks in his toe skin, which became infected, and he went to lower levels for treatment. If any European members of the group had followed the same routine, they would likely have suffered severe frostbite and hypothermia.

Bears

Yeti researcher Daniel C. Taylor believes he has convincingly proven that Yeti prints are made by Asiatic Black bears standing on their hind legs. He has recreated the footprints in the snow using casts from a black bear and believes them to be very similar.

Taylor believes that the long footprints in the snow from 1951 were made by the Asiatic black bear, known as Ursus thibetanus. When the bear put its front paw down, it didn’t press too hard into the snow, so the claws on the front paw didn’t leave clear marks. After that, the hind paw landed on the back part of the print, stretching it to about twelve inches in length.

The Nepalese Legend of the Yeti

Certain local Sherpas think that the Himalayas are home to unusual beings, and they view the Yeti (also commonly called the “abominable snowman”) as a guardian. On the other hand, some believe it to be a threat.

“There is a kind of mysterious creature that lives in the Himalayas,” explained Ang Tshering Sherpa, leader of the Nepal Mountaineering Association in Katmandu, who is from the Khumbu region.

NASA Zone F: Has NASA discovered strange creatures under the sea?

What is the connection between NASA, Zone F and the Megalodon?

A massive shark is caught on camera prowling near a research vessel off the Massachusetts coast, creating a buzz on social media. What is the link between NASA Zone F and this elusive megalodon?

What is a Megalodon?

The megalodon, from Nasa Zone F, compared with normal sized sharks and a human

The megalodon is an incredible creature from the past that once roamed the depths of our ancient oceans. It is often referred to as the largest shark that ever lived. Despite being extinct for millions of years, the sheer size and power of the megalodon continue to captivate our imaginations.

The megalodon was a massive shark, far larger than any shark we see in our oceans today. It is believed to have reached lengths of around 50 to 60 feet, which is like having three school buses parked end to end! Just thinking about it makes you realize how enormous this creature truly was. Its mouth alone was wide enough to swallow a human whole, with teeth that could grow up to 7 inches in length.

As a top predator, the megalodon had an insatiable appetite. It primarily fed on marine mammals, such as whales and seals, as well as large fish. With its powerful jaws and rows of sharp, triangular teeth, the megalodon would bite its prey with incredible force, incapacitating them instantly. Its strong body allowed it to swim swiftly, sneaking up on its unsuspecting victims, making it a true ocean hunter.

The megalodon was believed to inhabit oceans around the world during the Miocene and Pliocene epochs, which were about 2 to 20 million years ago. Its fossilized teeth have been found in various parts of the world, indicating its broad range. However, it suddenly disappeared from the Earth’s oceans, and scientists are still trying to determine the exact cause of its extinction. Some theories suggest that changes in climate and the decline in its prey population played significant roles.

What is NASA Zone F?

NASA Zone F has been employed for capturing satellite images of the Earth’s oceans, playing a crucial role in the identification and monitoring of oceanic phenomena. Leveraging cutting-edge technology, NASA holds the capability to unveil mysteries concealed beneath the ocean depths, potentially revealing the existence of the megalodon.

NASA scientists, in collaboration with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, are exploring the Earth’s hadal zone, the deepest parts of the oceans, to gain insights into extreme environments and develop technology for space exploration.

The hadal zone was once thought to be inhospitable, but discoveries of vibrant ecosystems around hydrothermal vents challenged that notion. Scientists are using autonomous underwater vehicles like Orpheus to map and study these depths, drawing parallels to environments on other planets, such as Jupiter’s moon Europa.

The challenges faced in exploring the hadal zone, with its extreme pressure and temperature conditions, provide valuable lessons for designing robotic missions in outer space.

Near the boundary between the inner and outer core of the Earth, there might be a decrease in how fast things are moving (negative velocity gradient). This could happen because there are elements in that area that produce heat. From a chemical standpoint, it’s expected that between one-third to more than half of all the Earth’s heat-producing elements are present below the upper mantle. This matches what we see in terms of heat coming out from the Earth’s surface.

When scientists conduct experiments at high pressure, they find that these heat-producing elements likely exist in the form of dioxides. These dioxides don’t mix well with the main rocks in the mantle under the temperature and pressure conditions found in the lower mantle. These heat-producing dioxides are very dense, possibly even denser than the liquid iron-nickel core of the Earth, so they might be moved to the boundary between the inner and outer core, known as the F zone.

it is possible that “Zone F” could represent a particular region in the Earth’s ocean where unique conditions exist, that allow the megalodon, to survive. It may have found a habitat in this specific zone due to favorable environmental conditions or the presence of certain prey species. This could mean that the megalodon still exists deep down in the ocean where they can hide away from human eyes.

The viral TikTok video of the Megalodon

Are these clips evidence that the megalodon still exists?

A huge shark was spotted from a research ship off the coast of Massachusetts in 2021, and a video of it has gone viral on social media.

The video was taken from the SSV Corwith Cramer, a research ship from the Sea Education Association. They were on a mission in the open ocean when they noticed the shark swimming next to the ship. A team member, Alex Albrecht, recorded the moment and shared it on TikTok, where it became viral. In the video, you can see the huge shark, some people think it might be a megalodon because of its size and shape, swimming slowly near the ship. Students on the ship can be heard shouting as the shark disappears into the water.

The sighting of the shark raised concerns, and NASA was contacted to check it out. Fortunately, it turned out that the shark wasn’t a threat. Satellite footage revealed that the mysterious shadow in the water was actually a group of harmless microbes. Even though the shark wasn’t dangerous, the video created a lot of excitement and got people interested in the idea that megalodons might still be living in our oceans.
