UFO on Mars is a 'hot pixel': Nasa confirms that mysterious white light landing on the red planet is just a camera glitch

Two images seem to show a white dot descending to the surface of Mars

This was just a week before Curiosity celebrated its first Martian year

In a series of images from Nasa’s Curiosity rover, a white dot appears to descend to the surface of the Mars.

The images are claimed by one Youtuber to be evidence of a UFO landing on the red planet.

But, says Nasa, the anomaly can be easily explained as a so-called 'hot pixel' in one of the cameras.

Claims of aliens on Mars are nothing new - many previous supposed sightings have been made.

This latest ‘discovery’ was taking by the two cameras on the mast of the rover, its head and neck, known as Navcam Left and Navcam Right.

The images were taken by the rover on 20 June, 665 Martian days since Curiosity first landed on Mars in August 2011.

Russians 'hid arms caches around Britain'

An intelligence archive made public today contains records of weapons caches hidden around cities across Europe and new details of Melita Norwood, the British woman considered the KGB's most important female spy

By Ben Farmer, Defence Correspondent
6:00AM BST 07 Jul 2014

Booby-trapped caches of weapons are probably still hidden around Britain after being concealed during the Cold War by Soviet agents preparing for conflict, a leading historian has said.

Details of how clandestine stockpiles of small arms and communications gear were hidden across Europe are disclosed in a KGB intelligence archive made public for the first time on Monday.

Documents from the Mitrokhin archive also reveal how a woman considered by some to be the Soviets' most important UK spy was given a medal and lifetime £20-a-month pension “for many years of excellent work” revealing nuclear secrets from her London office.

The trove of files copied down by a senior KGB archivist called Vasili Mitrokhin over a 12 year period before he defected in 1992 is considered one of the most invaluable intelligence sources of the Cold War and provides a detailed insight into Soviet spy operations.

Nineteen of 33 box files containing his notes are being opened to the public at Churchill College in Cambridge.

Mitrokhin’s notes provide detailed descriptions of weapons caches hidden around major European cities for use by agents operating abroad should tensions escalate into a conflict.

Professor Christopher Andrew, a historian and friend of Mitrokhin who has written two books on the archive, said caches were hidden around most major cities.

Though the archive provides no details of hidden weapons in Britain, they are almost certainly here, he said.

He added: "This was a large scale operation and the caches were strategically placed in most Nato countries during the Cold War.

"Given that Britain was second only to the United States in terms of importance to the Soviets at this time, it would be remarkable if this tactic wasn't deployed here.

"Of course by now they would not be easy to find and it is unlikely the weapons would be serviceable."

Describing one stash near Berne, Switzerland, Mitrokhin provides directions to a chapel near a farm.

He adds: "After taking 36 steps, you will be at the point between two large leafy trees, the only ones in the sector.

"The distance between the trees is three paces. The area between the trees has been used for the cache."

Another note provides instructions on how to disarm explosive booby-traps on the caches.

Mitrokhin’s notes led to the unmasking of Melita Norwood, who as an agent code-named Hola was considered to be the Soviet Union’s most important ever female agent, Prof Andrew said.

While working as a clerk and secretary at the British Non-Ferrous Metals Research Association in London she was able to pass on secrets which are believed to have been critical to the Russians’ atom bomb programme.

She was only unmasked in 1999, then aged 87 and living in Bexleyheath, and nicknamed ‘The Spy who came in from the Co-op’.

Her official KGB file in the archive details how she was “recruited in 1937 on ideological basis based on a tip from the leadership of the British Communist Party".

The KGB praised her as “a loyal, trustworthy, disciplined agent, who sought to deliver us maximum benefit”.

The file says: “Hola passed on a lot of valuable materials for nuclear energy, which she accessed by removing them from her boss’s safe, photographing them and then placing them back.”

In 1968 she was awarded the Order of the Red Banner of Labour for her service to intelligence. In 1962 she was appointed a lifetime pension of 20 pounds a month, which was paid up to June 1973.

Prof Andrew said there was evidence in the archive that the KGB prized Norwood more highly than Kim Philby.

He said: “At that time, security agencies were somewhat chauvinistic so to prefer a woman to Philby at that time, shows just how important she was to them," Prof Andrew said.

“It is unlikely she realised the significance of much of what she was passing on – to a non-expert and stripped of its context, it would have seemed relatively mundane.

“But there is no doubt from these documents that the information she passed on were extremely useful to the KGB."

Norwood was never prosecuted as such a move was deemed "inappropriate" by the Attorney General.

Police investigating murder of British family shot in French Alps reveal wife had a secret ex-husband who died in America on the SAME DAY

By Peter Allen

Published: 05:25 EST, 8 July 2014
Updated: 07:38 EST, 8 July 2014

Police investigating the murder of a British family who were gunned down in the French Alps two years ago are looking into a 'secret ex-husband' of one of the female victims, it emerged today.

The enquiry into the attack near Lake Annecy in France, in which four people were killed, including three members of the Al-Hilli family, continues to baffle detectives.

Iqbal Al-Hilli, 47, was killed alongside her husband Saad, 50, and her mother. A French cyclist was also caught up in the attack and died.

Today the case took a further twist as it emerged that Mrs Al-Hilli had a 'secret ex-husband' who died in mysterious circumstances in America on exactly the same day.

A senior French detective raised the possibility that the covert relationship may have provided a motive for the murder on September 5, 2012, where the Al-Hillis's car was peppered by gunfire.

The blasts killed everyone in the car except for Iqbal and Saad Al-Hilli's two daughters, killing all but the family's two young daughters, Zainab, seven at the time, and Zeena, who was four.

Benoit Vinnemann, one of the most senior police commanders working on the case, said Iqbal Al-Hilli was 'secretly married' to an American dentist 13 years her senior identified only as James T, between February 1999 and December 2000.

The short relationship was 'never spoken about' and James T. died in Natchez, Mississippi, on exactly the same day as the Alps killings.

The official cause of death was a heart attack, said Lt Col Vinnemann, but 'we still haven't had a response to certain questions,' he added, saying that 'we have discovered some astonishing things.'

Investigators thought they had made a breakthrough last month when the 35-year-old convicted criminal was taken into custody and questioned for three days.

But the captured man gave an alibi and was released.

He was thought to have been involved in the savage shootings of Saad Al-Hilli, 50, and his wife, Iqbal, 47, alongside her mother and a French cyclist on September 5, 2012.

The Zainab and Zeena survived the attack and are currently in the care of surviving family in England.

The Al-Hillis, of Claygate, Surrey, originally came from Iraq, and one theory is that their links to the regime of former dictator Saddam Hussein may be a reason for their murders.

Revelations about the secret ex-husband emerged as police arrested a suspected Iraqi contract killer in connection with the murder.

Eric Maillaud, the Annecy prosecutor, said the unnamed Iraqi was investigated in connection with the crime close to the village of Chevaline following a tip off.

The ex-convict was wire-tapped 'following specific claim from another prisoner that he could have been involved in a contract to kill Iraqis ', said Mr Maillaud.

They looked into his background for more than a year-and-a-half while he was living in Belgium, and then arrested him in June when he briefly visited northern France.

He was placed in custody in Lille for three days before providing an alibi which cleared him of being directly involved in the shootings.

Mr Maillaud said: 'He denied any involvement in a contract whatsoever, and we could not establish a link with the Al-Hilli family', adding that the man was now serving time for unrelated offences.

Iqbal died next to her mother, Suhaila al-Allaf, 74, while local cyclist Sylvain Mollier, 45, was killed by a hail of bullets before being dragged along the ground and crushed by the BMW estate car they were sitting in.

There have been claims that Mr Al-Hilli was involved in a dispute over a family inheritance with his brother Zaid Al-Hilli, 54, of Chessington, Surrey.

He was last year arrested under suspicion of conspiracy to murder but then released because of a complete lack of evidence.

Eric Devouassoux, a 48-year-old old former policeman from the Annecy area, was also arrested over the killings in February and spent four days in custody.

The gun collector is still being investigated for arms trafficking, but there has been no legal action linked to the four murders.

Investigators say that whoever carried out the crime is likely to be a trained marksman, and to know the local area extremely well.

Richard Dolan sat with me on Sunday May 25th, 2014 to talk about his national lecture tour with the Modern Knowledge Tour on their first stop in Halifax 2014. We speak about his latest book, UFO's for the 21st Century Mind, a poignant study into the subject from less than black and white perspective. We also talk about organic robots designed to tour the cosmos, his humble beginnings, Tim Good, and of course our Friday night dinner party with Chris Styles, Graham Simms, and Michael Tellinger. I wish he had told you I helped him find a new sim card for his phone in downtown Halifax, or how I tracked down the only only known copy of Zorba the Greek in the capital city, but that perhaps are personal anecdotes for another dinner party. One of the foremost important thinkers of our time, and a hell of a nice guy to boot.

Now’s Your Chance to Snag Your Very Own Harrier Hover Plane

By Alex Davies
07.08.14



User Image
This 1976 Hawker Siddeley Harrier GR3 jump jet is going up for auction this month.



If you’ve always wanted to own a hover plane but aren’t actually in the military, here’s your chance. A Harrier jump jet goes up for auction later this month, and it won’t take much to get it flying again.

The Harrier, developed by the British in the 1960s and later embraced by Marine Corps, is best known for its ability to hover like a helicopter. The jet’s engine pumps air through four nozzles, which rotate to propel the plane forward or straight up. That allows for very short takeoffs and vertical landings, so the plane doesn’t need a long runway to operate. It’s among the coolest, most ingenious aircraft ever designed. It’s also a bitch to fly.

The plane in question, serial number XZ132, was built in 1976 by Hawker Siddeley for the British Royal Air Force. It served in Germany during the Cold War and flew in Belize and the Falkland Islands. After 15 years, it was sent to the RAF College Cranwell, where it was used for training purposes. If that has you worried the plane was used and abused by n00bs, rest assured the plane experienced “nothing horrendous,” according to Silverstone Auctions. It was, they insist, “a mere training aid for trainee engineering officers to be taught about aerodynamics, flying controls, and documentation” and last flown in August 1990.

If you’re interested in buying the jet, you should know early Harriers were notoriously difficult to control and had an egregious safety record. So if you decide to make this plane fly again, check your life insurance before suiting up.

The current (unnamed) owner acquired Harrier XZ132 in November and has spent six months making it nearly as good as new. It wasn’t much trouble, since the jet was kept in a heated building. The paint hasn’t corroded or faded. The mechanical components “appear to be in tip top condition” and the sale includes more than 150 pounds of paperwork and documentation. It even has the original Mk9A Martin Baker ejection seat. Unfortunately for the action hero in all of us, it’s inert.

The old Harrier is, however, missing a few things:

◾Weapons systems and armaments. This almost certainly is for your own good. You really don’t need to be messing around with weapons and armaments, especially the rockets and BL755 cluster bombs the Harrier is made to carry.
◾A mounted engine. The Rolls Royce Pegasus Mk103 engine comes on a wheeled stand.
◾A few minor internal components, including the water tank, some fuel pipes, and some avionics.

The jet is crossing the block at the Silverstone Classic Sale in England on July 26. Silverstone won’t speculate on what it might go for, saying “market value for an aircraft of this pedigree is nearly impossible to gauge.” There’s no reserve, so if there aren’t a lot of bidders, you might get a really good price. Silverstone suggests the Harrier would be great “as a museum exhibit, gate guardian or centerpiece to a private collection.” Obviously it would be more fun to put in the extra work and make it fly again. If you dare.

If that’s too much for you, check out the Harrier Jump Jet pilot dummy that’s also going on auction, complete with night vision compatible helmet, oxygen mask, flying boots, leather gloves, and everything you need to connect to an ejector seat. All for a relatively affordable £1,000 to £1,500 ($1,710 to $2,570).

Germany investigating second U.S. spy suspect: security sources

BERLIN
Wed Jul 9, 2014 9:00am EDT

(Reuters) - Germany is investigating a suspected U.S. spy in its military, a security source said, days after the arrest of a member of its foreign intelligence agency as a double agent tested U.S. relations already strained by espionage.

The Federal Prosecutor's office said in a statement that authorities had begun conducting searches in Berlin on Wednesday morning in connection with a suspected spy, who had not been arrested. It gave no further details.

"The suspect is from the military," a security source told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The new investigation comes just days after Germany arrested a 31-year-old employee of the BND foreign intelligence service who admits passing documents to a U.S. contact. The foreign ministry has called in the U.S. ambassador for an explanation.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday that if it proved to be true that the BND officer was spying for NATO ally the United States, it would be a "serious case".

The documents include details of a parliamentary committee's investigation of former U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden's allegations that Washington carried out surveillance in Germany, including of Chancellor Merkel's telephone.

The new case, reported on Wednesday, is believed to be more serious than last week's, Sueddeutsche Zeitung daily said in an advance copy of Thursday's edition.

The defense ministry confirmed an investigation was going ahead but declined to give any further details. The U.S. embassy in Berlin was unable to comment.

The latest allegations risk further straining ties with Washington, which have been sorely tested by reports last year of large-scale snooping by the U.S. National Security Agency.

Merkel said on Wednesday that there were talks with the United States, but she could not comment on their content.

Two U.S. officials familiar with the case of the arrested BND official matter told Reuters on Monday the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was involved in a spying operation against Germany that led to the alleged recruitment of a German intelligence official.

Surveillance is a sensitive issue in a country where the memory of the Nazi's Gestapo secret police and communist East Germany's Stasi means the right to privacy is treasured.

After the Snowden revelations, Berlin demanded Washington agree to a "no-spy agreement" but the United States has been unwilling to make such a commitment. German officials also emphasize that they rely on intelligence from U.S. agencies.

Police investigating murder of British family shot in French Alps reveal wife had a secret ex-husband who died in America on the SAME DAY

By Peter Allen

Updated: 07:38 EST, 8 July 2014

Police investigating the murder of a British family who were gunned down in the French Alps two years ago are looking into a 'secret ex-husband' of one of the female victims, it emerged today.

The enquiry into the attack near Lake Annecy in France, in which four people were killed, including three members of the Al-Hilli family, continues to baffle detectives.

Wall Street Joins U.S. Intelligence Cronies To Form Fascist "Cyber War Council"

Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Want to hear the worst idea in the history of horrible ideas? How about we take the industry responsible for destroying the U.S. economy and wrecking the lives of tens of millions of people, and then allow it to create a “government-industry cyber war council.”

It appears that trillions in taxpayer bailouts simply wasn’t enough for Wall Street. Noting that it can seemingly get whatever it wants whenever it wants, the industry is now positioning itself to overtly control U.S. “cyber” policy. What could go wrong?

The man behind the push appears to be ex-NSA chief Keith Alexander, who as I reported on last month, is now: Pimping Advice to Wall Street Banks for $1 Million a Month. As I mentioned in that post, one of Mr. Alexander’s most high profile clients is Wall Street’s largest lobbying group the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA). Unsurprisingly, SIFMA is behind the latest push to formally merge Wall Street with the government intelligence apparatus. Mr. Alexander isn’t wasting any time.

Bloomberg reports that:

Wall Street’s biggest trade group has proposed a government-industry cyber war council to stave off terrorist attacks that could trigger financial panic by temporarily wiping out account balances, according to an internal document.



The proposal by the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, known as Sifma, calls for a committee of executives and deputy-level representatives from at least eight U.S. agencies including the Treasury Department, the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security, all led by a senior White House official.



More centralization. This is the exact opposite of what we want or need. The establishment is very worried about the trend toward decentralization, and making its move on many fronts.



The trade association also reveals in the document that Sifma has retained former NSA director Keith Alexander to “facilitate” the joint effort with the government. Alexander, in turn, has brought in Michael Chertoff, the former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, and his firm, Chertoff Group.

Ah, Michael Chertoff again. One of the most shameless government cronies out there. His relentless desire to profit from the “war on terror” is one of the main reasons we have installed those useless naked body scanners at airports across the country. Recall I covered this in my post, License Plate Readers Stir Controversy in California as the NYPD Prepares to Use Drones, in which I noted:

Forrmer head of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Michael Chertoff, has a private security company called the Chertoff Group, which stands to make lots of money from fear mongering the public about terrorism. As the Huffington Post reported in 2010:

Chertoff’s clients have prospered in the last two years, largely through lucrative government contracts, and The Chertoff Group’s assistance in navigating the complex federal procurement bureaucracy is in high demand. One example involves the company at the heart of the recent uproar over intrusive airport security procedures – Rapiscan, which makes the so-called body scanners. Back in 2005, Chertoff was promoting the technology and Homeland Security placed the government’s first order, buying five Rapiscan scanners.
