Did you know that Loch Ness (shown in green below) holds more water than all the lakes, rivers, canals and reservoirs in the whole of England and Wales combined!  

The deepest point in Loch Ness is 126 Fathoms which is twice the average depth of the North Sea!   This is where you will find the Loch Ness Monster chilling on most days .....

How might this discovery change our view of ancient human history? The Giza pyramids and the Sphinx, marvels of ancient engineering, might have once been underwater, a theory long debated but now potentially validated by a recent remarkable discovery. Archaeologists Sherif El Morsi and Antoine Gigal have unearthed a sea urchin fossil at the Giza complex, providing physical evidence that supports the hypothesis of the Sphinx and pyramids being submerged millennia ago. This finding echoes Dr. Robert M. Schoch's controversial 1990s theory, suggesting these iconic structures date back to between 5,000 and 9,000 BC, far older than mainstream Egyptology currently accepts. If true, this could rewrite our understanding of ancient Egyptian civilization.

Jellyfish UFO, Brazil 1958
Date: April, 1958
Location: Brazil
"When the UFO was at a distance of some 40 metres 120ft from him and the group of fishermen, at about 50ft above the water, it began to rock sideways, and then stopped and hung there. It seemed to have three distinguishable parts: the upper half was the colour of aluminium, like an inverted bowl, and on the top of it was a small protuberance or dome."

ACCORDING to a report received by General Chassin's saucer-research organization in Paris (GEPA), the  sighting occurred at 6am April 1958 on the Atlantic sea-board of Brazil. A Brazilian jeweller named Senhor Wilson Lustosa was travelling along the beach from the port of Maceio to a place called Parapueira, the witness stopped to ask some fishermen what they were looking at. They said that it was a flying saucer. He could see nothing at first, but soon he heard a humming noise, which grew rapidly louder, and perceived something which seemed to be falling out of the sky towards him, from the direction of the sea.

When the machine was at a distance of some 40 metres from him and the group of fishermen, and about 15 metres above the water, it began to rock sideways, and then stopped and hung there. It was from 15 to 20 metres /  50ft  in height, "and its width was at least 30m /  100 feet or so in diameter.

 It seemed to have three distinguishable parts: the upper half was the colour of aluminium, like an inverted bowl, and on the top of it was a small protuberance or dome, with a light as bright as that of an electric welding arc. The lower part was also a bowl, of the same size as the top, but dark in colour, and around the widest part, where the two bowls met, was a band with a number of square portholes, from which came a reddish light. The portholes nearest to the party of onlookers were darkened, as though there were people looking out through them.

Beneath the machine, the water seemed to be boiling, or being sucked up, but without actually touching the under part of it, and a faint humming could be heard at brief intervals. From the under part of the machine a number of things like leather thongs were hanging, motionless.

During the hour that they stood there and watched it, it rose again several times into the sky and then descended, as if crashing, "with a noise to shatter the ear-drums".

This report comes from Senhor Walter Sa Cardoso, who got  the report  from the eyewitness. I reproduce the sketch which accompanied the report, and suggest that this craft may be identical with the type photographed off the coast of California by  Radio Officer Fogl's saucer report in 1957.
 This seems to be a type of UFO which has been reported many times referring  to  "jellyfish-shaped objects", with long golden streamers hanging down (the leather thongs?

Who is considered the most famous science fiction writer of all time and what sets their work apart from others in the genre?
Science fiction has gone through several distinct eras, in which different kinds of writing dominated.

The first true science fiction novel of all time, and its first masterpiece, was “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley. As this is the principal book in the genre that may be considered a great classic (its themes go far, far beyond an inarticulate monster; he is actually VERY articulate about the ills of society) Mary Shelley may in fact qualify as the greatest sci-fi author, as well as the inventor of the sci-fi AND horror genres.

But she never published anything of note after that.

And yes, I would defend “Frankenstein” as the first true sci-fi novel… even though Mary Shelley herself explicitly quotes “Prometheus Bound.” But Frankenstein was more than just a mortal who offended the gods through his arrogance…. the explicit theme in “Frankenstein” was the possibility of mankind asserting a new control over Nature possible because of the Scientific Revolution — and the things that might go horribly wrong as a result. As Man finally achieves a new mastery over Nature, never known before, do we risk destroying ourselves??????

The character of Frankenstein was modeled on the great English scientists of the time (such as Davy, Faraday, and James Clerk Maxwell).

Otherwise, the first great science-fiction authors have to be H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, whose work is circa 1900. These were the “classic” science fiction authors (apart from Mary Shelley)…Their stories are well known to the world and have been adapted in film and television many, many times. They wrote works so classic, that when they are now done (and re-done and re-done) today, everyone is already familiar with the plots.

And they have spawned endless imitators. For example, “Independence Day” and “Mars Attacks” are both based closely on Wells’ “The War of the Worlds.” And most time-travel stories deal with some of the same paradoxes first dealt with in Wells’ “Time Machine.”

After Shelly, Wells, and Verne, there are still writers of great note, but we do, however, go downhilll somewhat, in terms of writing immortal classics….

In the 1950s, there were new leaders of the genre, whose work has lasted and lasted: Isaac Asimov and Ray Bradbury were the most distinguished on this list, in my opinion…. although sadly, Asimov, while maybe the best as a novelist, has proven extremely difficult to adapt successfully to the movies and TV, because Asimov's work focuses on ideas more than continuing characters, which he avoids.

Nonetheless, Asimov’s work creating the Three Laws of Robotics have had immense influence on the sci-fi franchise, affecting people far beyond the number of readers who actually read his books.

For example, the Star Trek satirical episode, “I, Mudd” is an example of Asimov’s Laws gone wrong. The First Law, remember, is that robots (or androids) will not let harm come to a human — through action OR through inaction.

Therefore, the androids in this episode, reasoning logically, decide that they have to rule the human race for its own good — which makes sense according to Asimov’s First Law. (Perhaps not surprising, as their main example of human behavior, up to now, has been that of Harry Mudd, a miserable failure and con man.) The problem is that this means enslaving all of humanity (again, for its own good). Kirk, Spock, and Mudd join forces to teach the androids that for humans, any life with freedom and self-determination, however flawed, is better than a life with no freedom. (This was a theme in Trek more than once.)

There have been a number of near-great sci-fi writers since, such as Theodore Sturgeon and Harlan Ellison, who both wrote for Star Trek.

But the dominant name today is probably Frank Herbert, whose “Dune,” maybe not surprisingly, had trouble finding a publisher at first… but as with JRR Tolkien, the Dune franchise is now an industry. :)

The Penrose Triangle, an IMPOSSIBLE figure created by Swedish artist Oscar Reutersvärd in 1934 and rediscovered in the 1950s by physicist Roger Penrose, is known as "impossibility in its purest form." Popularized by Penrose and highlighted in the works of M.C. Escher, this triangle appears to be a solid object composed of three straight sections of square sections joined together at straight angles.  - via A Picture is Worth 1000 Words https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=440497525347264&set=a.141248498605503
