Is There A Pyramid On Asteroid 1999-RQ36?

There appears to be a large pyramid structure on the surface of a nearby asteroid and NASA might be embarking on a mission to check it out.

Excellent website Mysterious Universe is reporting, along with other sites, that a recent video, (watch above), apparently showing the pyramid structure on asteroid 1999-RQ36 taken by the Indian Space Research Organization has created quite an excitement.

Why? Well the asteroid iN question was discovered back in 1999 and has been outlined to possibly impact earth between 2169 and 2199. Not wanting to waste time NASA organised a mission to land on the asteroid to obtain rock samples in 2018 and to return to Earth with their samples in 2023. Now after the release of the footage above many are theorising that the real mission is to check out what the mysterious pyramid shaped structure on it’s surface could be. What makes things even more mysterious is that neither NASA or the Indian Space Research Organization have acknowledged or confirmed that a foreign structure appears to be on the asteroid’s surface.

Capricorn One – The Full Movie.

Following yesterday’s amazing Apollo 11 post here’s the entire full length sci-fi classic Capricorn One, written and directed by Peter Hyams, (Outland, The Star Chamber), and released back in 1977. In our humble opinion this is one of the greatest conspiracy based films ever made, complete with black helicopters and a soundtrack which, to this day, still gives us goosebumps.

Here’s a bit of throwaway movie trivia for you:

Peter Hyams began thinking about a film of a space hoax while working on broadcasts of the Apollo missions for CBS. To stay within the budget, NASA’s cooperation was needed. Producer Paul Lazarus had a good relationship with the space agency from Futureworld. The filmmakers were thus able to obtain government equipment as props despite the negative portrayal of the space agency, including a prototype lunar module.

Happy Friday.
